ordinances.
Positioning
••Install the appliance on a flat hard floor.
••Make sure that air circulation around the
appliance is not impeded by carpets, rugs, etc.
••Never try to correct any unevenness in the
floor with pieces of wood, cardboard or similar
materials under the appliance.
14
••If it is impossible to avoid positioning the
appliance next to a gas cooker or coal burning
stove, an insulation (85x60 cm) covered with
aluminum foil on the side facing the cooker
or stove must be inserted between the two
appliances.
••Do not install the appliance in rooms where
freezing temperatures may occur. Frozen
hoses may burst under pressure. The
reliability of the electronic control unit may be
impaired at temperatures below freezing point.
••Ensure that when the appliance is installed,
it is easily accessible for an engineer in the
event of a breakdown.
••With the appliance installed, adjust all four
feet using a transit bolt spanner to ensure
the appliance is stable, and a clearance of
approximately 5 mm is left between the top
of the appliance and the underside of any
work-top.
••If the appliance is delivered in winter and
temperatures are below freezing, place the
appliance at room temperature for a few hours
before putting it into operation.
WARNING
••This equipment is not designed for maritime
use or for use in mobile installations such as
caravans, aircraft etc.
Electrical Connection

out by qualified personnel. Repairs carried out
by inexperienced persons may cause injury
or serious malfunctioning. Contact your local
service centre.
EN
Unpacking and Removing
Transit Bolts
1
Lift the appliance off the foam base.
••After removing the carton and shipping
material, lift the appliance off the foam
base. Make sure the tub support comes off
with the base and is not stuck to the bottom
of the appliance.
••If you must lay the appliance down to
remove the carton base, always protect the
side of the appliance and lay it carefully
on its side. Do not lay the appliance on its
front or back.
3
••Install the hole caps (optional).
••Locate the hole caps included in the
accessory pack or attached on the back.
Cap

NOTE
Tub Support Carton base

2
••Save the bolt assemblies for future use. To
prevent damage to internal components, Do
not transport the washing machine without
reinstalling the transit bolts.
••Failure to remove transit bolts and retainers
may cause severe vibration and noise, which
can lead to permanent damage to the washing
machine. The cord is secured to the back of
the washing machine with a shipping bolt to
help prevent operation with transit bolts in
place.
Remove the bolt assemblies.
••Starting with the bottom two transit
bolts, use the spanner (included) to fully
loosen all transit bolts by turning them
counterclockwise. Remove the bolt
assemblies by wiggling them slightly while
pulling them out.
15
EN
Using Anti-Slip Sheets
(Optional)
Wooden Floors (Suspended
Floors)
If you install the appliance on a slippery surface,
it may move because of excessive vibration.
Incorrect leveling may cause malfunction
through noise and vibration. If this occurs, install
the anti-slip sheets under the leveling feet and
adjust the level.
••Wooden floors are particularly susceptible to
vibration.
••To prevent vibration we recommend you place
rubber cups at least 15 mm thick of the each
foot of the appliance, secured to at least two
floor beams with screws.
1
Clean the floor to attach the anti-slip sheets.
••Use a dry rag to remove and clean foreign
objects and moisture. If moisture remains,
the anti-slip sheets may slip.
2
Adjust the level after placing the appliance in
the installation area.
3
Place the adhesive side of the anti-slip
sheets on the floor.
••It is most effective to install the anti-slip
sheets under the front legs. If it is difficult to
place the pads under the front legs, place
them under the back legs.
This side up
Adhesive side
4
Ensure the appliance is level.
••Push or rock the top edges of the appliance
gently to make sure that the appliance
does not rock. If the appliance rocks, level
the appliance again.
NOTE
••You can obtain anti-slip sheets from the LG
Service Centre.
16
Rubber Cup
••If possible install the appliance in one of the
corners of the room, where the floor is more
stable.
••Fit the rubber cups to reduce vibration.
NOTE
••Proper placement and leveling of the washing
machine will ensure long, regular, and reliable
operation.
••The washing machine must be 100%
horizontal and stand firmly in position.
••It must not ‘Seesaw’ across corners under the
load.
••The installation surface must be clean, free
from floor wax and other lubricant coatings.
••Do not let the feet of the washing machine get
wet. Failure to do so may cause vibration or
noise.
••You can obtain rubber cups (p/
no.4620ER4002B) from the LG Service
Centre.
EN
Leveling the Appliance
Connecting Supply Hose
If the floor is uneven, turn the adjustable feet
as required (Do not insert pieces of wood etc.
under the feet). Make sure that all four feet are
stable and resting on the floor and then check
that the appliance is perfectly level (Use a spirit
level).
••Once the appliance is level, tighten the lock
nuts up towards the base of the appliance. All
lock nuts must be tightened.
••Water supply pressure must be between 0.1
MPa and 1.0 MPa (1.0‒10.0 kgf/cm2).
••Do not strip or crossthread when connecting
inlet hose to the valve.
••If the water supply pressure is more than
1.0 MPa, a decompression device should be
installed.
••Periodically check the condition of the hose
and replace the hose if necessary.
Checking the Rubber Seal on the
Supply Hose

Installing the Drain Hose
••The drain hose should not be placed higher
than 100 cm above the floor. Water in the
appliance may not drain or may drain slowly.
••Securing the drain hose correctly will protect
the floor from damage due to water leakage.
••If the drain hose is too long, do not force
it back into the appliance. This will cause
abnormal noise.

Sorting laundry.
••To get the best results, sort clothes into
loads that can be washed with the same
wash cycle.
••Different fabrics need to be washed at
varying temperatures and spin speeds.
••Always sort dark colours from pale
colours and whites. Wash separately as
dye and lint transfer can occur causing
discolouration of white and pale garments.
If possible, do not wash heavily soiled
items with lightly soiled ones.
−−Soil (Heavy, Normal, Light) :
Separate clothes according to amount of
soil.
−−Colour (White, Lights, Darks):
Separate white fabrics from coloured
fabrics.
−−Lint (Lint producers, Collectors):
Wash lint producers and lint collectors
separately.
••Close zippers, hooks and strings to make
sure that these items don’t snag on other
clothes.
••Pre-treat dirt and stains by brushing a small
amount of detergent dissolved water onto
stains to help lift dirt.
CAUTION
••Check inside the drum and remove any items
from a previous wash.

••By default, the dispensed amount of auto
detergent and an auto softener for 4- 6 kg of
regularly soiled fabrics is set to 70 ml and 30
ml, respectively, which can be changed using
the More Settings button.
••Detergent usage may need to be adjusted for
water temperature, water hardness, size and
soil level of the load. For best results, avoid
oversudsing.
••Refer to the label of the clothes, before
choosing the detergent and water
temperature.
••For better washing performance and
whitening, use detergent with the general
powdered bleach.
