Preparation Before Washing
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.
To get the best results, different fabrics need to be washed in different ways.
Separate clothes according to the type and amount of soil.
• SOIL (Heavy, Normal, Light)
• 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, 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.
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
• 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)
Do not wash fabrics containing flammable materials (waxes, cleaning fluids, etc.).
Load Size
The WATER LEVEL should just cover the clothes. Adjust the load size
accordingly. Loosely load clothes no 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.
Fire Hazard
Never place items in the washer that are
dampened with gasoline or other flammable fluids.
No washer can completely remove oil.
Do not dry anything that has ever had any type of
oil on it (including cooking oils).
Doing so can result in death, explosion, or fire.
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.
Use of Water, Dispenser Drawer, Detergent, Bleach and Softener
Using Water
• This machine detects the quantity of laundry automatically, then sets the Water Level
and proper amount of Detergent.
• When you select a wash Course, 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.
[ 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
• The machine sets the appropriate temperature automatically according to the wash Course.
• 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.
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 Dispenser Drawer’
Using the Dispenser Drawer
The dispenser drawer contains 2 compartments:
• Liquid Fabric Softener
• Liquid or Powder Low-Sudsing, High-Efficiency Detergent
The dispenser automatically dispenses additives at the proper time in the wash cycle.
1. Slowly open the dispenser drawer by pulling the drawer out until it stops.
2. After adding laundry products, slowly close the dispenser drawer. Closing the
drawer too quickly could result in early dispensing of additives.
• Avoid overfilling or splashing when adding laundry products to the dispenser. Doing
so could result in early dispensing of laundry products.
At the end of the cycle, you may see water in the compartments. This is part of the
normal operation of the washer.
NOTE : Do not use bleach in the dispenser drawer.
Using 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.
How much Detergent
The correct amount of Detergent will vary depending on the amount of soil in your clothes (Jeans and work
clothes 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 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 contribute 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 Detergent
Add measured detergent to the detergent compartment of the dispenser drawer.
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.
Note : Using Liquid detergent
- Dilute Liquid detergent with water and pour into the tub, start the cycle.
- Delay wash course is not available if you use liquid detergent.
Using liquid detergent without diluting, or leaving laundry for a long time after pouring
diluted liquid detergent into the tub might cause damage, bleaching or discoloration of cloth.
Use of Water, Dispenser Drawer, Detergent, Bleach and Softener
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
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.
Using Fabric Softener
If desired, pour the recommended amount of liquid
fabric softener into the right-hand compartment.
Use only liquid fabric softener.
Dilute with water to the maximum fill line.
• Do not exceed the maximum fill line.
Overfilling can cause early dispensing of the fabric
softener, which could stain clothes.
NOTE : Do not pour fabric softener directly on the
wash load. It may stain the clothes.
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 23 or 34)
• 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.
Special Guide for Stain Removal
Do not use or mix liquid chlorine bleach with other household chemicals such as toilet cleaners, rust removers, acid or
products containing ammonia. These mixtures can produce dangerous fumes which can cause serious injury or death.
To reduce the risk of fire or serious injury to persons or property, comply with the basic warnings listed below:
• Read and comply with all instructions on stain removal products.
• Keep stain removal products in their original labeled containers and out of children’s reach.
• Thoroughly wash any utensil used.
• Do not combine stain removal products, especially ammonia and chlorine bleach. Dangerous fumes may result.
• Never wash items which have been previously cleaned in, washed in, soaked in or spotted with gasoline, dry cleaning solvents or
other flammable or explosive substances because they give off vapors that could ignite or explode.
• Never use highly flammable solvents, such as gasoline, inside the home. Vapors can explode on contact with flames or sparks.
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.
• Check for colorfastness by testing stain remover on an inside seam.

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.
