reparation Before Washing
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.
Sort clothes into loads that can be washed with the same wash cycle, Water Temperature and spin speed.
To get the best results, different fabrics need to be washed in different ways.
• SOIL (Heavy, Normal, Light)
COLOR (Whites, Lights, Darks)
LINT (Lint Producers, Collectors)
Lint Producers
Lint Collectors
Check before Loading
• Check all pockets to make sure that they are emtpy. Things such as nails, hairclips, matches,
pens, coins, and keys can damage both your washer and your clothes.
• Mend any torn garments or loose buttons. Tears or holes may become larger during washing.
• Remove belts, underwires, etc. to prevent damage to the machine or your clothes.
• Pretreat any dirt and stains.
• Make sure the clothes are washable in water.
• Check the washing instructions.
• Remove tissue from pockets.
Do not wash or spin any item labeled or known to be water-proof or water-resistant, even if the product care label on the item
permits machine washing. Failure to follow these instructions could result in severe damage to your laundry, your washer and/or
property damage as a result of abnormal vibration of the washer.
- Examples of water-proof or water-resistant items include certain mattress pads, mattress covers, rain gear, camping gear, skiing
apparel, outdoor gear and similar items.
Pretreatment on stains or heavy soil
• Pretreat shirt collars and cuffs with a pre-wash product or liquid Detergent when placing them in the washer.
Before washing treat special stains with bar soaps, liquid Detergent or a paste of water and granular Detergent.
• Use a pretreat soil and stain remover.
Treat stains AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. The longer they are left the harder they are to remove.
(For more detail refer to page12)
Do not wash fabrics containing flammable materials
(waxes , cleaning fluids , etc . )
Load Size
The WATER LEVEL should just cover the clothes.
Adjust the load size accordingly. Loosely load
clothes not higher than the top row of holes in the
washer tub. To add items after washer has started,
press Start button and submerge additional items.
Close the lid and press Start button again to restart.
Light and Large-sized clothing
Clothes like downs and woollens are light weight, large and float easily. Use a nylon net and
wash them in a small amount of water. If the laundry floats during the wash cycle, it may
become damaged. Use dissolved Detergent to prevent the Detergent from clumping.
Long laundry items
Use nylon nets for long, DELICATE items. For laundry with long strings or long length , a net will prevent
tangling during washing. Fasten zippers, hook, and strings to make sure that these items don't snag on other clothes.
Nylon net is not supplied by LG.
Separate clothes according to th e type and amount of soil.
Separate white fabrics from colored fabrics.
Separate lint producers and lint collectors.
Terry cloth, Towels, Nappies, Diapers
Synthetics, Socks
Fire Hazard
Never place items in the washer that are dampened with
gasoline or other flammable fluids. No washer can completely
remove oil.
Do not dry anything that has ever had any type of oil on it
(including cooking oils). Doing so can result in death, explosion,
or fire.
