nstallation
Concrete floors
• The installation surface must be clean, dry and level.
• Install washer on a flat hard floor.
Tile floors (Slippery floors)
• Position each foot on the Tread Mate and level the machine to suit. (Cut Tread Mate into
70x70 mm sections and stick the pieces on to the dry tile where machine is to be placed.)
※ Tread Mate is a self adhesive material used on ladders & steps that prevents slipping.
Wooden floors (Suspended floors)
• Wooden floors are particularly susceptible to vibration.
• To prevent vibration we recommend you place rubber cups under each
foot, at least 15mm thick under the washer, secured to at least 2 floor
beams with screws.
Rubber Cup
※ It can be purchased from
hardware suppliers.
• If possible install the washer in one of the corners of the room, where
the floor is more stable.
※ Insert the rubber cups to reduce vibration.
※ Rubber cups ( p/no. 4620ER4002B) can be purchased from the LG spare parts department.
Important!
• Proper placement and levelling of the washer ensures long, regular and reliable operation.
• The washer must be absolutely horizontal and stand firmly in position.
• It must not “Seesaw” across corners under load.
• The installation surface must be clean, free from floor wax and other lubricant coatings.
• Do not let the feet of the washer get wet. If feet of the washer get wet, slipping may occur.
13
C
are before washing
Before the first washing
Select a cycle (COTTON 60°C, add a half load of detergent) allow the unit to wash without clothing.
This will remove residues from the drum that may have been left during manufacturing.
Caring before washing
1. Care Labels
Look for a care label on your clothes. This will tell you about the fabric content of your garment and
how it should be washed.
2. Sorting
To get the best results, Sort clothes into loads that can be washed with the same wash cycle.
Water temperature and spin speed and different fabrics need to be washed in different ways.
Always sort dark colors from pale colors and whites. Wash separately as dye and lint transfer can
occur causing discoloration of white etc. If possible, do not wash heavily soiled items with lightly
soiled one.
Soil (Heavy, Normal, Light)
Separate clothes according to amount of soil.
Color (White, Lights, Darks)
Separate white fabrics from colored fabrics.
Lint (Lint producers, Collectors)
Wash lint producers and lint collectors
separately.
3. Caring before loading
Combine large and small items in a load. Load large items first. Large items should not be more
than half the total wash load.
Do not wash single items. This may cause an out-of-balance load. Add one or two similar items.
• Check all pockets to make sure that they are
empty. Items such as nails, hair clip,
matches, pens, coins and keys can damage
both your washer and your clothes.
• Pre treat dirt and stains by brushing a little
detergent dissolved in water onto stains like
collars and cuffs to help shift dirt.
• Close zippers, hooks and strings to make
sure that these items don’t snag on other
clothes.
• Check the folds of the flexible gasket (gray)
and remove any small articles,if any.
• Check inside of the drum and remove any left
items in it for next wash cycle.
• Remove any clothing or items on the flexible
gasket to prevent clothing and the gasket
damages.

15
A dding detergent
3. Detergent dosage
• The detergent should be used according to the
instruction of the detergent manufacture.
• If too much detergent is used, too many suds
can occur and this will decrease the washing
result or cause heavy load to the motor.
• Use powder detergent only for the front
loading washer.
❇ If suds occur too much, pleas reduce the
detergent amount.
• Detergent usage may need to be adjusted
for water temperature, water hardness,
size and soil level of the load. For best
results, avoid oversudsing.
❋ Tips
Full load : according to
manufacturer’s recommendation.
Part load : 3/4 of the normal
amount.
Minimum load : 1/2 of full load.
• Detergent is flushed from the dispenser
at the beginning of the cycle.
5. Using the Tablets
1) Open the door and Tablets into the
drum.
4. Water softener
2) Load the laundry into the drum.
• A water softener, such as Anti limescale
(Clagon) can be used to cut down on the
use of detergent in extremely hard water
areas. Dispense according to the amount
specified on the packaging.
First add detergent and then the water
softener.
• Use the quantity of detergent as for soft
water.

roubleshooting guide
NOTE
• If the moisture inside the drum is not removed well after the use, it can cause odor or stains
(Mold). After using the washer, keep the door open until the moisture inside the drum dries up.
Using SMARTDIAGNOSIS™
• Only use this feature when instructed to do so by the call center.
The transmission sounds similar to a fax machine, and so has no meaning except to the call center.
• SMARTDIAGNOSIS™ cannot be activated if the washer does not power up.
If this happens, then troubleshooting must be done without SMARTDIAGNOSIS™.
If you experience problems with your washer, call to Customer Information Center.
Follow the call center agent's instructions, and do the following steps when requested:
1. Press the Power button to turn on the washer.
Do not press any other buttons or turn the cycle
selector knob.
2. When instructed to do so by the call center, place
the mouthpiece of your phone very close to the
Power button.
Max. 10 mm
3. Press and hold the “Temp.” button for three seconds, while holding the phone mouthpiece to the icon
or Power button.
4. Keep the phone in place until the tone transmission has finished.
This takes about 17 seconds, and the display will count down the time.
• For best results, do not move the phone while the tones are being transmitted.
• If the call center agent is not able to get an accurate recording of the data, you may be asked to try again.
• Pressing the Power button during the transmission will shut off the SMARTDIAGNOSIS™.
5. Once the countdown is over and the tones have stopped, resume your conversation with the call
center agent, who will then be able to assist you using the information transmitted for analysis at the
call to Customer information center.
❋ Smart Diagnosis is a troubleshooting feature designed to assist, not replace, the traditional method of
troubleshooting through service calls. The effectiveness of this feature depends upon various factors,
including, but not limited to, the reception of the cellular phone being used for transmission, any
external noise that may be present during the transmission, and the acoustics of the room where the
machine is located. Accordingly, LG does not guarantee that Smart Diagnosis would accurately
troubleshoot any given issue.
