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. the jog dial or the door,
they may break off.
Risk of Falling or Tripping Up
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
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 specialist.
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
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.

Vacuum the front ventilation grill 3-4 times a year to
make sure there is no build up of lint or dirt that
could cause improper air flow.

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.
21
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 appliances 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)
C aring for Your Dryer
Before cleaning the dryer's interior, unplug the power cord to avoid electric shock hazards.
• Turn off the stopcock if the machine is to be left for any length of time (e.g. holiday), 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 clogged.
It is therefore a good idea to clean it from time to time.
Caring for Your Dryer
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.
4. Replace the filter and tighten up the inlet hose.

The drying time is
not consistent
The drying time for a load will vary depending on the heat setting, the size of the load,
the type of fabrics, the wetness of the clothes and the condition of the lint filter.
Water is leaking
Check if the door or seal cover is dirty or damaged.
The clothes are
creased
Check the laundry is not overloaded. Try a shorter drying time and remove items
whilst they still retain a slight amount of moisture. Use the anti-crease function.
The garments have
shrunk
To avoid shrinkage, please follow the care and use instructions for your garment, as some fabrics shrink naturally when washed and other fabrics should
not be placed in a dryer.

Note
The SmartDiagnosis™ function is available only
for the products with a SmartDiagnosis™ mark.
In case of a mobile phone with static option, the
smart diagnosis function may not operate.
Using SmartDiagnosis™
Troubleshooting Guide
• 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 LG’s customer information centre. Follow
the call centre agent's instructions, 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.
2. When instructed to do so by the call centre,
place the mouthpiece of your phone close to the
"SmartDiagnosis™" icon and Power
button.
Max. 10 mm
3. Press and hold the “Time Delay” button for
three seconds, while holding the mouthpiece
of your phone close to the
"SmartDiagnosis™" icon and Power
button.
4. Keep the phone in place until the tone transmission has finished.
This takes about 6 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 centre 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 centre agent, who
will then be able to assist you using the information transmitted for analysis during your
call to the customer information centre.
Note
“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.”
