nstallation
Concrete floors
• The installation surface must be clean, dry and level.
• Install washer on a flat hard floor.
Tile floors (Slippery floors)
• Position each foot on the Tread Mate and level the machine to suit. (Cut Tread Mate into
70x70 mm sections and stick the pieces on to the dry tile where machine is to be placed.)
• Tread Mate is a self adhesive material used on ladders & steps that prevents slipping.
Wooden floors (Suspended floors)
• Wooden floors are particularly susceptible to vibration.
Rubber Cup
• To prevent vibration we recommend you place rubber cups under
each foot under washer at least 15mm thick, secured to at least
2 floor beams with screws.
• If possible install the washer in one of the corners of the room, where the floor is more stable.
• Insert the rubber cups to reduce vibration.
• You can obtain the rubber cups (p/no.4620ER4002B) from the LG spares dept.
• Proper placement and levelling of the washer will ensure long, regular and reliable
operation.
• The washer must be 100% horizontal and stand firmly in position.
• It must not “Seesaw” across corners under load.
• The installation surface must be clean, free from floor wax and other lubricant
coatings.
• Do not let the feet of the washer get wet. If feet of the washer get wet, slipping may
occur.

1. 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.
2. Sorting
To get the best results, sort clothes into loads that can be
washed with the same wash cycle.
Water temperature and spin speed and different fabrics need to
be washed in different ways.
Always sort dark colors from pale colors and whites. Wash
separately as dye and lint transfer can occur causing
discoloration of white etc. If possible, do not wash heavily soiled
items with lightly soiled one.
• Soil (Heavy, Normal, Light)
Separate clothes according to amount of soil.
• Color (White, Lights, Darks)
Separate white fabrics from colored fabrics.
• Lint (Lint producers, Collectors)
Wash lint producers and lint collectors separately.
3. Caring before loading
Combine large and small items in a load. Load large items first.
Large items should not be more than half the total wash load. Do
not wash single items.
This may cause an out-of-balance load. Add one or two similar
items.
• Check all pockets to make sure that they are empty. Items such
as nails, hair clip, matches, pens, coins and keys can damage
both your washer and your clothes.
• Close zippers, hooks and strings to make sure that these items
don’t snag on other clothes.
• Pre treat dirt and stains by brushing a little detergent dissolved in
water onto stains like collars and cuffs to help lift dirt.
• Check the folds of the flexible gasket (gray) and remove any
small articles.
• Check inside of the drum and remove any item from a previous
wash.
• Remove any clothing or items from the flexible gasket to prevent
clothing and gasket damage.
Before the first washing, Select a cycle (Cotton 60°C, add a half load of detergent) allow the unit to wash
without clothing. This will remove residues and water from the drum that may have been left during
manufacturing.
