LG leads the field with its industry-first 6 Motion™ technology washing-machines

In another first, LG Electronics (LGE) announces the launch of an innovative new range of front-load washing machines featuring breakthrough 6 Motion™ Technology.

Sydney, Australia, August 17 2011 – In another first, LG Electronics (LGE) announces the launch of
an innovative new range of front-load washing machines featuring breakthrough 6 Motion™
Technology.

Unlike any other product on the market, LG’s innovative and stylish 6 Motion™ Wash Technology
uses six powerful but gentle techniques to deliver a customised wash for different types of fabrics,
without the harsh treatment that causes damage to clothes.

To effectively minimise time spent in the laundry, the 6 Motion™ Wash Technology front-load
washing machine also carries LG’s renowned ‘Big In’ feature, a 10kg washing capacity within a
standard size washing machine dimension. Ideal for smaller houses and high density apartments,
the ‘Big In’ feature means consumers can wash less frequently, spending more time away from the
laundry.

Giving consumers peace of mind, the 6 Motion™ Wash Technology front-load washing machine
offers a Steam Washer, complete with an Allergy Care function, removing more dirt and reducing
common household allergens by up to 99 per cent. The model’s 20 minute Steam Refresh Cycle
also provides a detergent-free wash that uses less than one litre of water, ensuring clothes are
deodorised and crinkle-free with every cycle.

LG’s new range of front-load washing machines also come equipped with an Inverter Direct Drive™
motor. With an industry-leading 10 Year Direct Drive Motor Warranty, the system’s motor is
integrated at the centre of the machine’s drum, ensuring a more energy-efficient and significantly
quieter wash.

“The innovative technologies on LG’s new front-load washers are designed to make laundry time a
breeze. The 6 Motion™ technology, combined with its ‘Big In’ 10kg washing capacity, means less
wear and tear on clothes, giving consumers more time with family and friends,” said Glacel Lubrin
Zabat, LG Electronics Australia’s Category Marketing Manager for Fridges, Washing Machines and
Dishwashers.

LG’s 6 Motion™ front-load washing machine is available at major retailers around Australia. For
