SAFETY
: Failure to comply with the instructions under this
sign may result in minor physical injuries or
damages to the product.
WARNING
Under certain conditions hydrogen gas may be produced in a water heater that has not been
used for two weeks or more. Hydrogen gas can be explosive under these circumstances.
If the HOT water has not been used for two weeks or more, prevent the possibility of
damage or injury by turning on all Hot water faucets and allowing them to run for several
minutes. Do this before using any electrical appliance which is connected to the HOT
water system. This simple procedure will allow any built-up hydrogen gas to escape. Since
the gas is flammable, do not smoke or use an open flame or appliance during this process.

Care Labels
* Look for acare label on your clothes This will tell you about the fabric content of your g arment
and how it should be washed.
Sort clothes into loads that can be washed with the same wash cycle, Water Temperature and spin speed.
Sorting
To get the best results, different fabrics need to be washed in different ways.
• SOIL (Heavy, Normal, Light)
Separate clothes according to the type and amount of soil.
• COLOR (Whites, Lights, Darks) Separate white fabrics from colored fabrics.
• LINT (Lint Producers, Collectors) Separate lint producers and lint collectors.
Lint Produ cers
Lint Collectors
Terry cloth, Chenille Towels, Nappies, Diapers
Synthetics, Corduroy, P ermanent Press, Socks
Check before Loading
• Check all pockets to make sure that they are emtpy. Things such as nails, hairclips,, matches,
pens, coins, and keys can damage both your washer and your clothes.
• Mend any torn garments or loose buttons. Tears or holes may become larger during washing.
• Remove belts, underwires, etc. to prevent damage to the machine or your clothes.
• Pretreat any dirt and stains.
• Make sure the clothes are washable in water.
• Check the washing instructions.
• Remove tissue in pockets.
WIRE
Pretreatment on stains or heavy soil
• Pretreat shirt collars and cuffs with a pre-wash product or liquid Detergent when placing them in the washer.
Before washing treat special stains with bar soaps, liquid Detergent or a paste of water and granular Detergent.
• Use a pretreat soil and stain remover.
Treat stains AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. The longer they are left the harder they are to remove.
(For more detail refer to page15)
Loading
Do not wash fabrics containing flammable materials (waxes, cleaning fluids, etc.).
Load Size
The WATER LEVELF should just cover the clothes. Adjust the load size accordingly. Loosely load clothes not higher
than the top row of holes in the washer tub. To add items after washer has started, press Start button and submerge
additional items. Close the lid and press Start button again to restart.
Light and Large-sized clothing
Clothes like downs and woollens are light weight, large and float easily. Use a nylon net and
wash them in a small amount of water. If the laundry floats during the wash cycle, it may
become damaged. Use dissolved Detergent to prevent the Detergent from clumping.
Long laundry items
Use nylon nets for long, DELICATE items. For laundry with long strings or long length , a net will prevent
tangling during washing. Fasten zippers, hook, and strings to make sure that these items don't snag on other clothes.
Nylon net is not supplied by LG.

Note : To check you are using the correct amount of Detergent, lift the lid of your machine about halfway through the wash. There should be a thin layer of foam over the surface of the water. Lots of
foam may look good, but it does not cotribute to cleaning your clothes. No foam means not enough
Detergent has been used; soil and lint can settle back on the clothes or the washing machine.
If excess Detergent is used, the rinse will not be as clean and efficient. Also, it could cause
environmental pollution, so use it accordingly.
Adding the detergent
Open the detergent dispenser and deposit the appropriate amount of detergent where you deposit the detergent
powder in Detergent dispenser. Some detergents MUST be fully dissolved before adding to your machine to get
the best wash results. Check the instructions on the detergent packet. If you use powdered detergent it is essential
that the required amount be fully dissolved in very hot water before being added to warm or hot water for the
actual wash. Pre-dissolving detergent in war water when washing in cold water can improve its performance.

Using Liquid Bleach
• Check clothing care label for special instructions and separate the
laundry to be bleached
• Dilute liquid chlorine bleach.
• Measure the recommended amount of liquid bleach carefully
following instructions on the bottle.
• Before starting the washer, pour measured amount of bleach directly
into bleach dispenser. Avoid splashing or overfilling. Powdered
bleach should be mixed with water before pouring.

NOTE
n Never pour undiluted liquid bleach directly onto clothes or into the wash basket.
This may cause change of color or damage the laundry.
n Do not pour powdered bleach into bleach dispenser.

U
se of Water, Detergent, Bleach and Softener
Using Fabric Softener
Dilute fabric softener with water.
Undiluted fabric softener may result in spots that look like oil stains.
Measure and add the recommended amount of fabric softener into the
compartment marked with this symbol (
).
Follow manufacturer's direction.
Fabric softener is automatically
dispensed in the final rinse.
Softener dispenser (
)
Do not overfill. The dispenser holds a maximum of 35ml.
Never add more than 35ml.
Overfilling can cause early dispensing of the fabric softener
which could result in stained clothes. A cup with a pouring spout will
help you avoid spilling.
The effect of adding fabric softener may vary according to its viscosity. The stickier fabric softener makes its
effect the lower. For a sticky fabric softener it is recommended that it be diluted with water, then be manually
put during the time when the washer beeps several times before the final rinse. This function informing
correct time to dispense manually is optionally applied to some models. Please keep it in mind that fabric
softener has to be diluted with water before dispensed and never poured directly on clothes.
Attention
Do not mix with detergent or bleach.
Never pour fabric softener directly on clothes. It may stain them.
Do not stop the washer during the first spin for timely dispensing.
Option washing is not designed to be used with fabric softener dispenser.
Scrud(Waxy Build up)
Scrud is the name given to the waxy build-up that can occur within any washer when the fabric softener
comes into contact with detergent. This build-up is not brought about by a fault in the machine.
If scrud is allowed to build-up in the machine it can result in stains on your clothes or an unpleasant
smell in your washer.
If you wish to use fabric softener we recommend
Using fabric softener sparingly.
When filling the dispenser, do not splash or overfill.
Clean dispenser as soon as the cycle is finished.
Clean your machine regularly.
Cold water washing increases the chance of this build-up occurring. We recommend a regular warm or hot
wash e.g. every 5th wash should be at least a warm one.
Fabric softener of thinner consistency is less likely to leave residue on the dispenser and contribute to a
build-up.

Concerning the Power Cord
Most appliances recommend they be placed upon a dedicated circuit; that is, a single outlet circuit which powers
only that appliance and has no additional outlets or branch circuits. Check the specification page of this owner's
manual to be certain. Do not overload wall outlets. Overloaded wall outlets, loose or damaged wall outlets,
extension cords, frayed power cords, or damaged or cracked wire insulation are dangerous. Any of these
conditions could result in electric shock or fire. Periodically examine the cord of your appliance, and if its
appearance indicates damage or deterioration, unplug it, discontinue use of the appliance, and have the cord
replaced with an exact replacement part by an authorized servicer. Protect the power cord from physical or
mechanical abuse, such as being twisted, kinked, pinched, closed in a door, or walked upon. Pay particular
attention to plugs, wall outlets, and the point where the cord exits the appliance.
Other Grounding Method
Burying Copper Plate
Connect the Ground Wire to a Ground Copper
Plate and bury it more than 75cm in the ground.
