Installation Instructions
I nstallation 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. or the jog dial or the door.
they may break off.
Risk of Tripping
Ensure there are no loose hoses or cables.
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 15mm
space at either side of the dryer and at the back of
the dryer to allow air to exit the rear grille. 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 2-way adaptor or extension lead.
You can stack the dryer on top your washing of
washing machine to save space. A stacking kit is
available from your local shop.

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 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, trapped in a door,
or walked upon. Pay particular attention to plugs, wall outlets, and the point where the cord exits the appliance.

Note
Condensed Water Drain-out
Normally, condensed water is pumped up to the water
container where water is collected until manually emptied. Water can also be drained out directly to a mains
drain, especially when the dryer is stacked on top of a
washing machine. With a connecting kit for a mains
drain hose, simply change the water path and reroute
to the drainage facility as below:
1. Take
connecting
kit out.
2. Separate
water
container
hose from
the kit.
17
Caring for Your Dryer
- Warm air is exhausted through the ventilation grill
- Adequate ventilation has to be provided
to avoid the back flow of gases into the
room from appliance’s burning other
fuels, including open fires.
The device senses the moisture level of the
laundry during operation, which means it must
be cleaned regularly to remove any build up of
lime scale on the surface of the sensor. Wipe
the sensors inside drum (as illustrated)
