LG LAUNCHES EXCITING NEW SMARTWASHER RANGE
April 9, 2013, Sydney – LG today launched the latest additions to its washing machine range for 2013. Already holding the No. 1 position in the Australian market, LG has again demonstrated its commitment to improving the lives of consumers by creating an innovative and stylish line-up that saves consumers time and money. Among the several new additions to the range announced today, the hero product for the front-loader (WD14070SD6) range combines LG’s four leading features - 10kg capacity, Smart Diagnosis, 6 Motion Control and TrueSteam, while the hero product (WT-R10856) in the top-loader range combines 10kg capacity, Smart Diagnosis and 6 Motion Control with a Built-In Heater.
LG is committed to creating well-engineered and innovative digital home appliances, designed to offer practical solutions that make a difference to people’s lives.
“LG has become a leading brand in the laundry space by focusing on features that consumers are increasingly demanding - reliable, larger washing machines. The new SmartWasher machines are perfect additions to the new LG laundry line, bringing our best features together to produce a machine that will enable families to do fewer loads with the 10kg capacity and enjoy more free time,” said Phillip Anderson, Head of Public Relations at LG Australia.
Over the last three years there has been an increase in demand for large capacity washing machines, for both front and top loaders. LG’s new SmartWasher machines can handle an impressive 10kg load, allowing consumers to reduce their daily, weekly and monthly wash loads; helping to reduce the time and energy they spend doing washing.
Additionally, the larger drum is ideal for washing bulky household items like rugs and king-size bedding at home rather than at the dry cleaners or laundromat.
TrueSteam TM Functionality
Select models in the new LG SmartWasher range are equipped with an innovative steam generator to help reduce odours and wrinkles. The generator, on selected cycles, achieves an optimum temperature inside the drum to help remove allergens for a more hygienic clean.
TrueSteam is used in the Steam Refresh Cycle which is specifically calibrated for use on more delicate items, such as a dress shirt or blouse that you may wish to wear again but don’t have the time to put through a full wash. The steam refresh function allows for a quick clean for those on the go.
By incorporating steam technology into a hot wash cycle, the LG SmartWasher is able to better penetrate fabrics, loosening and dissolving particles as well as eradicating stubborn stains. This results in a clean and hygienic wash, reducing the need for expensive in-wash soakers.
6 Motion Control
LG’s innovative 6 Motion Wash Technology, a function which offers six distinct wash actions, features in the new LG SmartWasher machines. With different combinations of the six innovative wash techniques, including tumbling, scrubbing, filtration, rolling, stepping and swing, a customised wash for different types of fabrics can be achieved.
Having more control over the way you wash your clothes can preserve your favourite items for longer. LG’s SmartWasher swing motion action, for example, is designed to mimic the hand-washing motion.
The latest LG SmartWasher machines can communicate directly with LG’s Customer Information Centre, with the use of an LG app and a smartphone. This can save consumers time & money by eliminating unnecessary service calls.
