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.
Before Starting to Wash
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.
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 Producers
Terry cloth, Chenille, Towels, Nappies, Diapers
Lint Collectors
Synthetics, Corduroy, Permanent Press, Socks.
Check before Loading
••Check all pockets to make sure that they are empty. Things such as nails, hair clips, 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, under wires, 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.
Caution
Do not wash or spin any item labeled or known to be water-proof or water-resistant, even if the
product care label on the item permits machine washing. Failure to follow these instructions could
result in severe damage to your laundry, your washer and/or property damage as a result of abnormal
vibration of the washer.
-- Examples of water-proof or water-resistant items include certain mattress pads, mattress covers, rain
gear, camping gear, skiing apparel , outdoor gear and similar items.
Pretreatment on stains or heavy soil
••Use ‘PreWash+Normal’ cycle for very soiled clothes. In case of heavily soiled clothes, pretreatment
may require before the cycle.
••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.

Using Water
Amount of Water Level
••This machine detects quantity of laundry automatically, then sets the Water Level
and proper amount of detergent.
••When you select a wash Course, the Water Level and amount of detergent (to be
used) will be shown on the 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.
NOTE
[Minimum water amount]
It depends on laundry load and washer model. Or manually you can pour a certain amount water into tub
directly to some height. That’s because if water level reaches to the some height sensed by washer itself,
washer automatically operates. In other words, it is needed to pour water to the point when washer starts
operating.
Water Temperature (WARM,COLD : Option for Only 2 Vale)
••The machine sets the appropriate temperature automatically according to the wash course.
••You can change the water temperature by pressing the Water Temp. Button. (refer to page 14)
••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 *18~40 °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.
Attention
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.

machine to get the best wash results.
Check the instructions on the detergent packet. If you use powdered
detergent if 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 warm 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.
Attention
■■Never pour undiluted liquid bleach directly onto clothes or into the wash basket.
This may cause change of color or damage the laundry.
■■Do not pour powdered bleach into bleach dispenser.

Before Starting to Wash
Using detergent
How much Detergent
When you select a wash Course the water level and the amount of detergent (to be used) will be shown
on the control panel. The amount of a cup in the diagram is about 40 g for concentrated detergent.
The correct amount of Detergent will vary depending on the amount of soil in your clothes (Jeans and
work cloches may need more Detergent, while bath towels usually need less.).
For liquid and concentrated Detergents, follow the recommendations of the Detergent manufacturer.
Note: To check you are using the correct amount of detergent, lift the lid of your machine about
half-way 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 contribute to cleaning your clothes. No foam means
not enough detergent had 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.

Undiluted fabric softener may result in spots that look like oil stain
••Measure and add the recommended amount of fabric softener into
the compartment marked with this symbol( ).
or
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 35 mL.
Never add more than 35 mL.
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 sticker fabric softener
makes its effect the lower. For a sticky 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 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 33)
••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.

Caution
CAUTION 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.
