Stacking installation instructions
The LG Dryer can be placed on the top of a front loading washing machine. They are sure to be fixed
with stacking kit (See the next page). This installation must be conducted by an experienced installer in
order to secure robust installation of both washer and dryer. If this work is done very carelessly, dryer
may fall off.
More importantly, a certain washer model has matching models for stacking so advice from the
experienced installer is very critical.
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 conditions 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, pinched, closed in a
door, or walked upon. Pay particular attention to plugs, wall outlets, and the point where the cord exits the
Your dryer should not be located near gas hob,
cooker, heater or eye level grill as flames from the
burners could cause damage to your dryer. When
the dryer is fitted under a work surface, allow 15
mm space from each side of the dryer for air to
exit the rear grille. This airflow is critical to
condense the water during drying.
If you use this dryer near or stacked on top of
washing machine, seperate 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 of washing
machine to save the space. A stacking kit is
available from your local shop.
