Condensed Water Drain-out
Leveling the appliance
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 the mains drain hose,
simply change the water path and re-route to the
drainage facility as below:
Leveling the appliance prevents unnecessary
noise and vibration. Place the appliance on a
solid, level floor.
If the appliance is not properly level, adjust the
front leveling feet as necessary.
Turn them clockwise to raise and counterclockwise to lower until the appliance no longer
wobbles, both front-to-back and side-to-side and
corner-to-corner.

15
EN
CAUTION
••Be careful! The drum inside may still be hot.
••The appliance must not be used for purposes
other than those for which it was designed.
NOTE
••The final part of a tumble dryer cycle occurs
without heat (cool down cycle) to ensure that
laundry is left at a temperature that ensures the
laundry will not be damaged.
••A high atmospheric temperature and a small
room may both increase drying time as well as
energy consumption.
Rubber and Plastics
••Do not dry any items made from or containing
rubber or plastics such as:
−−Aprons, Bibs and Chair Covers
−−Curtains and Table Clothes
−−Bathmats
Fiberglass
••Do not dry fiberglass items in the appliance.

subsequently picked up by your clothes in later
cycles.
Icon
Sorting Laundry
Clothes have their own wash care labels, so
drying according to the wash care label is
recommended.
Not only that, the laundry must be sorted
according to size and type of fabric.
For the best drying performance and most
efficient energy usage, do not overload the
appliance.
Woollens
••Dry woollens on the Wool programme. Be sure
to follow fabric care label symbols first. Wool
may not be completely dried from the cycle,
so do not repeat drying. Pull woollens to their
original shape and dry them flat.
Woven and Loopknit Materials
••Some woven and loopknit materials may
shrink, depending on quality.

MAINTENANCE
EN
••Open the second lint filter.
WARNING
••Remove the power plug when you clean the
appliance. Not removing the plug may result in
electric shock.
Cleaning the Lint Filter
Clean the lint filter before each drying cycle.
Cleaning the lint filter will reduce drying time and
energy consumption.
1
Open the door.
2
Remove the first lint filter.
3
5
Rinse away the lint under warm, running
water.
6
Dry the lint filters completely, close them and
reinsert both lint filters.
Remove the second lint filter.
NOTE
4
30
Open both lint filters and remove all the lint.
••Open the first lint filter.
••Remove moisture from the mesh. Otherwise,
the lint filter may be clogged due to water film
and the appliance may not operate.
••If the lint filter is not in the appliance, you can
not operate the appliance.
EN
Emptying the Water Container
Condensed water is collected in the water
container.
Empty the water container after every use. Not
doing so will affect the drying performance.
If the water container is full, an error massage
appears and the buzzer sounds while the
appliance is in operation. If this should occur, the
water container needs to be emptied within the
next hour.
1
Cleaning the Cool Air Inlet
Grill
Vacuum the Cool Air Inlet grill 3 – 4 times a year
to make sure there is no build up of lint or dirt
that may cause improper air flow.
Pull out the water container.
NOTE
2
Empty the water container in the sink.
••Warm air is exhausted through the ventilation
grill.
••Adequate ventilation should be provided to
avoid the back flow of gases into the room from
units burning other fuels, such as open fires.
Wiping the Moisture Sensor
This 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 the drum.
3
Push it back into the appliance.
4
Press the Start/Pause button.
CAUTION
••Do not wipe the moisture sensor with abrasive

Symptoms
Water leaks.
Clothes have damp
spots after a Sensor
Dry programme.
Reason
The water container hose
or the drain hose is not
connected correctly.
The door is closed while
laundry or foreign substance
is caught in the door.
Very large load or very small
load. Single large item such
as a blanket or comforter.
Solution
••Connect the water container hose or
the drain hose correctly.
••Check if laundry or foreign substance
is caught in the door before using the
appliance. If water leaks continuously,
contact the LG Electronics Customer
Information Centre.
••If items are too tightly packed or too
sparse the sensor may have trouble
reading the dryness level of the load.
Use a Timed Drying programme for
very small loads.
••Large, bulky items such as blankets
or comforters can sometimes wrap
themselves into a tight ball of fabric.
The outside layers will dry and register
on the sensors, while the inner core
remains damp. When drying a single
bulky item, it may help to pause the
cycle once or twice and rearrange the
item to unwrap and expose any damp
areas.
••To dry a few remaining damp items
from a very large load or a few damp
spots on a large item after a Sensor
Dry programme has completed, empty
the lint trap, then set a Timed Drying
programme to finish drying the item(s).
