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 page13)
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.

U
se of Water, Detergent, Bleach and Softener
Using Water
Amount of WATER LEVEL
• This machine detects the quantity of laundry automatically, then sets the
WATER LEVEL and proper amount of Detergent.
• When you select a wash program, the WATER LEVEL will be shown on
the control panel.
• The following table shows the amount of water.
• When the WATER LEVEL is automatically detected, it may differ depending
on the quantity of laundry even though the same WATER LEVEL is indicated
on the control panel.
FULL
Inlet Water Temperature
• You can change the Inlet Water Temperature by pressing the INLET WATER TEMP. button. (refer to page 14)
(Machine does not have internal heater, water temp. indicates the temp of inlet water feeded to machine)
• The temperature of the water impacts the effectiveness of all laundry additives and therefore, the cleaning results.
We recommend temperatures of:
- HOT 49~60°C… (120-140 F)
White items, diapers, underclothing and heavily soiled, colorfast items.
- WARM 29~40°C… (85-105 F)
Most items
- COLD* 18~24°C… (65-75 F)
Only very bright colors with light soil.
• When washing in COLD water additional steps may be needed:
- Adjust Detergent amount and pre-dissolve Detergent in WARM water
- Pretreat spots and stains
- Soak heavily soiled items
- Use appropriate bleach
* Temperature below 18°C… (65 F) will not activate laundry additives and may cause lint, residue, poor cleaning, etc.
In addition, Detergent manufactures and care labels define COLD water as 26~29°C… (80-85 F).
If the temperature of the water in the tub is too cold for your hands, the Detergent will not activate and clean effectively.
NOTE
If iron is present in the water the clothes may become an all-over yellow or they may be stained with brown or orange
spots or streaks. Iron is not always visible. Installation of water softener or an iron filter may be necessary for severe cases.
Using Detergent
Detergent
Follow the Detergent package directions. Using too little Detergent is a common cause of laundry problems.
Use more Detergent if you have hard water, large loads, greasy or oily soils or lower Water Temperature.
Choosing the right Detergent
We recommend the use of domestic Detergent, (powder, liquid or concentrated). Soap flakes or granulated
soap powders should not be used in your washing machine. When washing woolens remember to use
Detergent suitable for washing woolens.

Before Starting to Wash
Water Level and Amount of Detergent
* Rated Capacity of Model
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
Add measured detergent to the detergent compartment of the dispenser drawer.
We recommend the use of powdered detergent in the dispenser when using a
delay wash function.
Detergent is flushed through the dispenser at the beginning of the wash phase.
Detergent usage may need to be adjusted for water temperature, water hardness,
size and soil level of the load.
Avoid using too much detergent in your washer, as it can lead to oversudsing and
detergent residue being left on the clothes.
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.
Bleach dispenser
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.

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.
Softener dispenser(
)
• 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 with
indication beep.
If you want extra rinse, you must add fabric softener manually
when indication beep rings in the final rinse.
This maximize the fabric softener function.
• Do not overfill. The dispenser hold max 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 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. (refer to page 22 or 32)
• 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.
13
For successful stain removal:
• Remove stains promptly.
• Determine the kind of stain, then follow the recommended treatment in the stain
removal chart below.
• To pretreat stains, use a prewash product, liquid Detergent, or a paste made from
granular Detergent and water.
• Use COLD water on unknown stains because HOT water can set stains.
• Check care label instructions for treatments to avoid on specific fabrics.
Follow fabric care label
• Check for colorfastness by testing stain remover on an inside seam.

rounding Method
Earth wire should be connected.
If the earth wire is not connected, there is possible a danger of electric shock caused
by the current leakage .
Grounding Method with Ground insert space Terminal
Ground terminal
If the AC current outlet has a ground terminal, then
separate grounding is not required.
Grounding is
not needed
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.

• Remove the water supply hose, and immerse it in HOT water at approx.. 40 C.
• Pour approx.. 2 liters of HOT water at approx.. 40 C, into the bowl and let it stand for 10 minutes.
• Connect the water supply hose to the water tap and confirm that the washing machine performs the
supply and drainage of water.
Wash Inner-tub
Leave the lid open after washing to allow moisture to evaporate. If you want to clean
the inner-tub use a clean soft cloth dampened with liquid Detergent, then rinse. (Do
not use harsh or gritty cleaners.)
Inlet Hoses
Exterior
Hoses connecting washer to faucet should be replaced every 5 years.
Immediately wipe off any spills. Wipe with damp cloth. Try not to hit surface with
sharp objects.
Long Vacations
Be sure water supply is shut off at faucets. Drain all water from hoses if weather will
be below freezing.
Cleaning the Inside of your Washer
If you use fabric softener or do regular COLD water washing, it is very important that you occasionally clean the
inside of your washer.
• Fill your washer with HOT water.
• Add about two cups of a powdered Detergent that contains phosphate.
• Let it operate for several minutes.
• Stop the washer, open the lid and leave it to soak overnight.
• After soaking, drain the washer and run it through a normal cycle.
Or use TUB CLEAN PROGRAM periodically.
We do not recommend that you wash clothes during this procedure.
Products that might damage your washing machine
• Concentrated bleaches and diaper sanitizer will cause damage to the paintwork and components of your washer.
• Hydrocarbon solvents i.e. petrol, paint thinners and lacquer thinners, etc. can dissolve plastic and blister paint
(Be careful when washing garments stained with these solvents as they are flammable DO NOT put them in
washer or dryer.)
• Some pretreatment sprays or liquids can damage your washer’s control panel.
• Use of dyes in your washer may cause staining of the plastic components. The dye will not damage the machine
but we suggest you thoroughly clean your washer afterwards. We do not recommend the use of dye strippers in
your washer.
• Do not use your washer lid as a work surface.
