LG INTRODUCES NEW WATER-WISE DISHWASHER RANGE

Energy and water efficient products lead LG’s dishwasher range

September 13, 2013, Sydney – LG Electronics Australia (LG) is further cementing its reputation as a global leader in technological innovation with the  release of  its  freestanding dishwasher range, featuring an  array of exciting features.

Demonstrating LG’s commitment to providing premium home appliances that suit consumer’s lifestyles,  the eight new products on offer include the top-of-the-range  LD1485T4 and  LD1484T4, which combine LG’s unique TrueSteam™ technology, state-of-the-art Smart Diagnosis™ function, and Smart Rack™ system, as well as an impressive 5.5 star water rating – making these some of the most water efficient dishwashers on the market.

“LG has invested significantly in the home appliance category to ensure we continue to provide consumers with products that fit their lifestyle through premium features, convenience, and operating efficiency. The new LG Dishwasher range is a great example of well-engineered and innovative home appliances that give everyday Australians an amazing clean with less time and effort required,” commented Lambro Skropidis, General Manager Marketing at LG Australia.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                  

High Energy and Water Rating

Consumers continue to demand efficient, affordable, and effective products. Having an energy efficient home is an increasingly important issue for many consumers as it cuts both energy consumption and power bills. With these needs in mind, LG has produced a range of eight dishwasher models that have received an impressive 4 star energy rating - an increase from the energy ratings of the previous LG dishwasher range.

Water consumption is also extremely important to consumers concerned about both the environment and household costs. LG’s hero models, the LD1485T4 and LD1484T4, as well as two more of the newly introduced models, the LD1484W4 and LD1483T4, feature an impressive 5.5 star water rating - one of the highest on the market. This rating answers consumer desire for high quality products that are water efficient.

 

TrueSteam™

LG’s TrueSteam™ technology requires less effort to produce great results, significantly reducing the need for pre-washing and ultimately helping consumers to save time and effort. TrueSteam™ works by creating high-temperature steam particles that are injected from carefully positioned pressure nozzles. The steam particles then penetrate, loosen, and dissolve grease and grime, leaving dishes sparkling clean.

Steam temperature and pressure is managed via a built-in steam generator, and the resulting particles are powerful enough to tackle the most stubborn food remains.  The result is superior performance that is exceptionally gentle, regardless of how tough the grime.

 

Smart Rack™ System

Several models (LD1485T4, LD1484T4, and LD1484W4) in the new range feature LG’s innovative Smart Rack system. With summer just around the corner, entertaining and hosting BBQs and garden parties will be back on the agenda. After all the fun, the last thing every day Australians want to engage in is the monotony of washing up. The new system provides a smart solution to create more usable space with flexible racks, enabling consumers to adjust the baskets to suit a variety of dish sizes, leaving you with less time at the sink and more in the sun. All of the new models also include an exclusive third rack for placing additional smaller items such cutlery, which often end up being hand-washed as consumers can’t find room to stack them.

 

Smart Diagnosis ™

The latest LG Dishwashers can communicate with LG’s Customer Information Centre with the use of an LG App and a smartphone. The machine emits a six second signal that helps to allow LG to diagnose the issue in the unlikely event that a problem occurs with the machine. This can save consumers time and money by eliminating unnecessary service calls.
