Sydney, 9 December, 2009 - LG Electronics (LG) reinforces its position as a global leader in style and design with the launch of its latest Front Load Washer and Condensing Dryer in bold candy apple red finish in Australia.
The striking colour brings a new look to the laundry - one LG is sure will be a great success. Designed to complement each other as a pair, the two laundry products are a stylish, sophisticated fashion statement that will brighten any modern laundry.
The launch of the new candy apple red front load washer and condensing dryer follows the successful expansion of LG's laundry range earlier in the year and is an example of LG's commitment to continuously provide stylish and smart products that fit consumer's lives. These additions to LG's popular laundry range offer consumers more choice and cements the company's leading position in the category.
Glacel Lubrin Zabat, Category Manager Home Appliances, LG Electronics Australia, comments on the new products: "The past few years have shown a significant shift in the home appliance category with consumers demanding products that are aesthetically pleasing and sophisticated in their design.
"The candy apple red finish of the new Front Load Washer and Condensing Dryer is a first for the laundry category and we are excited to be offering consumers more choice and variety. As with all LG products, these new appliances don't just look good - they also provide consumers with superior performance and functionality. We are proud to be launching two new appliances that highlight our commitment to providing consumers with products that are the perfect harmony of stylish design and smart technology," said Ms Lubrin-Zabat.
The Front Load Washer (WD-14039D) features LG's innovative Inverter Direct Drive Motor - state of the art technology that integrates the motor to the centre of the drum, eliminating the belt and pulley. This causes less vibration and noise and increases durability. As always, the LG Direct Drive Motor comes with a 10 year warranty (2 years parts and labour + 8 years on motor part) for consumer's piece of mind.
This exciting new washer also features LG's leading laundry technologies including the Intelligent Wash System. With this system, sensors detect the load and selected water temperature to optimise water level and cycle time according to the size and type of load. This prevents people from selecting excessive spin speeds and temperatures, which can damage clothes. The intelligent washing system also detects and adjusts imbalances and excessive suds during operation for the best washing performance.
As with all LG Front Load Washers, the new washer also comes with the Pause & Add Function which conveniently allows you to pause and add clothes to your wash load. It also features the Baby Care program which heats the water up to 95 degrees, providing a more hygienic wash for your children's clothes.
The new Condensing Dryer (TD-C809E) has dual sensors to improve drying performance - the Electrode Sensor detects the actual wetness of clothes, while the Microchip Sensor detects the humidity in the drum - working together to provide premium drying results. The Dryer also features a larger drum capacity (8kg) and a wide, transparent door (36cm wide). The Candy Apple Red Condensing Dryer also incorporates LG's Clothes Care technology, which features three cycles - Cool Air, Wool Cycle and Sports Wear. These three cycles provide consumers with a customised drying performance specific for their needs. Working on top of this is the Multi Temperature Control heater which allows consumers to choose the precise temperature appropriate for different clothing items.
