Please read this manual carefully before operating
your dryer and retain it for future reference.
Big Capacity Drum
The big capacity drum on this LG dryer allows you to dry more
washing at once, saving time!
Lower Energy Consumption
LG dryers use less energy than conventional dryers due to the cuttingedge technology we have applied to the drying system and to the heat
control mechanism. This LG Dryer has been designed to save you money.
Reduced Drying Times
Drying times are now shorter due to the efficient air flow mechanism
and optimised heater on this LG Dryer.
Reduced noise levels
We have reduced the operating noise of this LG dryer by using
innovative sound-absorbing and noise-screening technologies,
making it much quieter than conventional dryers.
Steam Refresh
LG’s steam technology allows you to inject fabrics with a swirling
jet of hot steam to refresh clothes, reduce static, and make
ironing easier. Simply select the Steam Refresh cycle, or you can
add a steam option to selected cycles.
Easy of Use
The wide, electronically controlled LED display on this machine
is very easy to use. Simply select the cycle you require
and your LG dryer will do the rest. SmartDiagnosis™ is available.

Installation Instructions
The following instructions will guide you through the initial steps of setting up your dryer.
Please note that every section of this manual provides important information regarding the
preparation and use of your dryer, and it is important that you review this entire manual
before proceeding with any installation or use. Be sure to observe all listed warnings and
cautions. These installation instructions are intended for use by qualified installers. Read
these installation instructions completely and carefully.
Safety Information
Risk of Injury
The dryer is very heavy so you shouldn’t
try to lift it alone.
Do not lift the dryer by grasping any of the
protruding parts, e.g. the jog dial or the
door, they may break off.
Risk of Falling or Tripping Up
Ensure there are no loose hoses or
Check the dryer for damage occurred
during transportation.
Do not connect the dryer if it has visible
signs of damage.
If you are not confident, contact your local
LG agent. Always empty the dryer
completely before transporting it.
Your dryer should not be located near to a
gas hob, cooker, heater or grill, as flames
from the burners could damage your dryer.
When the dryer is fitted beneath a work
surface, allow 30cm~50cm space at either
side of the dryer and at the back of the dryer
to allow air to exit the rear grill. This air flow
is critical for condensation of water during
the drying process.
If you use this dryer near or stacked on top
of your washing machine, separate main
plugs and sockets must be used for each
appliance. Do not use a 2-way adaptor or
extension lead.
You can stack the dryer on top of your
washing machine to save space. A stacking
kit is available from your local appliance
■ Stacking Installation Instructions
Your LG dryer can be placed on top of a front loading washing machine and securely fixed
with a stacking kit (see following page for instructions). This installation must be conducted
by an experienced installer to ensure it has been installed correctly.
An installer will ensure you have the correct stacking kit for your model of washing
machine and will ensure it is firmly fixed. For these reasons, expert fitting is essential.
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 insulations are
dangerous. Any of these could result in an 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 authorised servicer.
Protect the power cord from physical or mechanical abuse, such as being twisted,
kinked, trapped in a door, or walked upon. Pay particular attention to plugs, wall outlets,
and the point where the cord exits the appliance.

especially if there is no floor drain (gully) in the immediate vicinity.
The water inlet filter
" icon will be displayed on the control panel when water does not enter the dryer.
• If water is very hard or contains traces of lime deposit, the water inlet filter may become

1. Turn off the water tap.
2. Unscrew the water inlet hose.
3. Carefully remove the filter from inlet valve
and clean the filter using a bristle brush.

In case of a mobile phone with static
option, the smart diagnosis function
might not operate.
■ Using SmartDiagnosis™
• Only use this feature when instructed to do
so by the call centre. The transmission
sounds similar to a fax machine, and so
has no meaning except to the call centre.
• SmartDiagnosis™ cannot be activated if
the dryer does not power up. If this
happens, then troubleshooting must be
done without SmartDiagnosis™. If you
experience problems with your dryer, call
the Customer information centre.

and do the following steps when requested:
1. Press the Power button to turn on the
dryer. Do not press any other buttons or
turn the cycle selector knob.

• For best results, do not move the phone
while the tones are being transmitted.
• If the call centre agent is not able to get
an accurate recording of the data, you
may be asked to try again.
5. Once the countdown is over and the
tones have stopped, resume your
conversation with the call centre agent,
who will then be able to assist you using
the information transmitted for analysis
during your call to the Customer

“Smart Diagnosis is a troubleshooting
feature designed to assist, not

room where the machine is located.
Accordingly, LG does not guarantee
that Smart Diagnosis would accurately
troubleshoot any given issue.”
