What You Need to Know about Washing Machines

What Does the British Allergy Foundation Seal of Approval Mean?

One in three persons in the UK are affected by allergies at some point in their lifetime. The numbers are rising, yet few national resources are allocated to the diagnosis and treatment of this multi-organ disease.

The British Allergy Foundation, operating under the charity name Allergy UK, has set a standard for products which restrict/reduce/remove allergens from the environment of the allergy sufferer, and for products which have significantly reduced allergen content.

LG and the British Allergy Foundation

Several LG Washing Machines have received the British Allergy Foundation Seal of Approval for their allergen-reducing properties. Look for the logo beside each product.

To learn more, visit the British Allergy Foundation’s website.

How Are Direct Drive Washing Machines Better Than Conventional Machines?

What Are the Differences Between Direct Drive and Conventional Washing Machines?

Direct Drive washing machines have a powerful and reliable motor that boasts minimised vibration and noise, and reduced energy consumption. Conventional washing machines with belts and pulleys tend to wear out faster due to vibration, and create unpleasant noise and power-loss due to friction.

What Are the Advantages of Direct Drive?

With a Direct Drive motor, there are fewer moving parts. This means less vibration and noise, increased efficiency, and a decreased chance of breakdown or brush and belt replacement.

What Is Direct Drive?

Direct Drive is state-of-the-art technology that integrates the washing machine’s motor, belt, and pulley into a single, quiet, and durable mechanism, attached directly to the drum.

How Does Direct Drive Technology Work?

A powerful and reliable motor delivers power directly to the drum.

What Are the Benefits of a Large Capacity Washing Machine?

A large capacity washing machine cuts down on the number of loads, while allowing you to wash larger items such as blankets or curtains. Also, with more space, your items will be less wrinkled.

What Is the Advantage of a Large Washing-Machine Door?

With their wide, 30cm porthole and 180º swing doors, LG washing machine doors make it east to load and unload large items.

What Is the “Intelligent Washing System”?

Once you’ve selected a programme and pressed the start button, the Intelligent Washing System detects the load size, selects the water temperature, and determines the optimum water level and cycle time, keeping water and energy consumption to a minimum.

What Is “Shower Spray”?

LG washing machines are equipped with a circulating shower function called Shower Spray. A pump under the drum sprays water from the top during washing and rinsing cycles, to improve detergent dispersion.

The LG Design Philosophy for Washing Machines

Design plays a critical role in harmonising technology and human needs. In an effort to predict emerging needs and deliver innovative products to the public, LG has developed a comprehensive design philosophy that boils down to four basic elements: concept, style, interface, and finish.

At LG, we strive to make your home life easier and more enjoyable by creating digital appliances that fit your lifestyle and home décor.

Design That Integrates Sensitive Ergonomics and Digital Technology

In this era of digital technology, LG has been delving deeply into design and research. Our design team is focused on creating digital appliances that make life easier and more fun.

Digital technology is becoming an increasingly important tool in our modern lives. A growing number of products come equipped with “intelligent” microchips and networking options. This technology, though still in its early stages, has great potential—requiring our designers to put on their “inventing caps” to predict emerging trends, design new lifestyle concepts, and test out their designs on a demanding public.

Designing for the Future

At the LG Life Soft Research Lab, established almost 20 years ago, researchers, designers, and trend scouts work to predict the future by examining and identifying consumer desires; observing the public’s interest in products; and developing design concepts and solutions based on this research.

This is how LG stays one step ahead of the game—we’re always working on products for the future. Our research is focused not only on new products and technological trends, but also on understanding customer and market behaviour.

LG Washing Machine Designs

LG is currently the only company offering its unique Direct DriveTM technology. In 2008, our innovative Steam Direct DriveTM washing machine was voted "Product of the Year" for "Excellence in Garment Care" by Get Connected. LG has some of the largest-capacity washing machines available, not to mention customised to fit each customer’s needs.

What Should I Look for in a Washer Dryer Combo?

What Should I Look for in a Washing Machine Door?

LG washing machines have a wide 30cm porthole, and a 180º swing door, making it easy to load and unload bulky items.

What Is the Intelligent Washing System?

Once you’ve selected the cycle and pressed the start button, the Intelligent Washing System detects the load-size, selects the water temperature, and determines the optimal water-level and cycle-time.

What Is “Shower Spray”?

LG washing machines are equipped with a circulating shower function called Shower Spray. A pump under the drum releases water, spraying from the top during washing and rinsing cycles, to improve detergent dispersion.

What Do I Need to Know about Steam Direct Drive?

The innovative LG Steam Direct Drive uses real steam to deliver cleaning performance that’s superior to water alone.

Steam penetrates more effectively than water. It’s surprisingly simple. Steam molecules are smaller, hotter, and more active than water, which means they get between fibres and dissolve dirt, remove odours, and eliminate allergens. Steam also takes less time to do a better job because it reaches higher temperatures more quickly.

What Is Direct Drive?

Direct Drive is state-of-the-art technology that integrates the washing machine’s motor, belt, and pulley into a single, quiet, and durable mechanism, attached directly to the drum.

What Is Steam Technology?

LG’s revolutionary Steam Technology uses a real steam generator to convert water into steam, which is then fed into the top of the drum through a patented spray nozzle. Steam then penetrates fabrics for enhanced cleaning performance, resulting in brighter whites and more vibrant colours.

What Is the Medic Rinse Cycle?

The ingenious LG Medic Rinse cycle, which was given the British Allergy Foundation’s Seal of Approval, removes 99.8% or more of household dust mites and animal dander.

What Is the Steam Refresh Cycle?

The LG Steam Refresh cycle uses real steam to virtually eliminate wrinkles and odours, making your fabrics look fresh and new in just 20 minutes. Steam Refresh is perfect for bringing lightly worn clothes back to life at the end of the day, or for fluffing and refreshing towels and comforters.

What Is a Load Sensor?

A Load Sensor is a sensor found in LG washer machines that is specially designed to ensure optimal washing and rinsing performance by automatically adjusting wash-and-rinse cycle times, depending on the size of the load.

What Are Designer Colours?

Steam Direct Drive washing machines are available in white, silver, and black—a variety of options to match your décor.

What Is Ultra-Capacity?

Choose the drum size to fit your lifestyle. Ultra-capacity helps you wash more clothes in fewer loads.

What Is a Washer Dryer?

A washer dryer provides both washer and dryer functionality in one compact appliance. These cutting-edge, comprehensive laundry units require less energy and water than separate washers and dryers—and they eliminate the need for venting—and create more space in your home.

What Is a Load Sensor?

A load sensor automatically optimises water-level and wash-time based on the weight and size of each load, for superior washing performance.

Does the LG Washer Dryer Clean Clothes as Well as My Current Washer?

Yes, and often more effectively! The tumbling action of a front-loading washer gently lifts the clothes in and out of the water hundreds of times during the wash cycle. This action cleans and rinses your clothes better than top-loading washers, and is gentler on the fabric. Also, the LG Washer Dryer Combo goes through three rinses during the regular cycle, eliminating any detergent residue that’s ordinarily left in the clothing.

Does a Washer Dryer Operate Differently from a Conventional Washer and/or Dryer?

With a washer dryer, loads are smaller. Washing and drying combined takes approximately 2.5 to 3 hours, so gear your wash habits accordingly. This could mean washing a load every day or every other day, rather than trying to wash everything in one day. Washer dryers also use a condensation drying system that operates without venting. Therefore, drying times run somewhat longer, but still use only 2/3 the energy of standard venting dryers. For best results, shake and fold—or hang on a clothes hanger right away to avoid wrinkling. Remember, tweak your wash habits, and you'll love your LG Washer Dryer.

How Large of a Load Can an LG Washer Dryer Handle?

LG Washer Dryers are capable of washing about 8kg of dry clothes. For combined wash and dry, they accommodate about 4kg of dry clothes.

Does the LG Washer Dryer Combination Need to be Vented?

No, LG Washer Dryer Combos have a patented condensation drying system in which hot air is condensed into liquid, and then pumped out via the discharge hose into a regular drain. This also means no humidity is created in the area around the washer dryer unit.

Where Can the LG Combination Washer Dryer Be Installed?

The most important thing is to install your washer dryer in a place that’s most convenient for you. It can be installed in the kitchen, bathroom, living area, laundry room, or closet. The beauty of the LG Washer Dryer Combo is its versatility of installation. With the elimination of humid air-venting, your options are unlimited. As long as you have access to plumbing, a drain, and a standard electrical receptacle, it can be installed anywhere.

What Type of Detergent Should I Use with an LG Washer Dryer?

Low-sudsing detergent, such as powder detergent, works best in washer dryers. While powder is preferable, a low-sudsing liquid detergent works fine too. And because LG washer dryers require only one to two tablespoons, you’ll enjoy a substantial savings on your detergent costs.

Should I Use Fabric Softener in a Washer Dryer?

LG recommends using a fabric softener in our washer dryers, to make the drying cycle more efficient and help avoid wrinkles.

LG Washer Dryers and Energy Efficiency

LG Washer Dryers use 50% less water. This means you’ll save money on your water bill, and your hot-water heater will use less energy—both of which will save money on your electricity bill.

Can I Open the Unit During the Drying Cycle?

With wash-only cycles, you can remove items only after the cycle is complete. To dry all or part of the washed load, simply set the desired cycle and press start. At that point, the door cannot be opened again until the cycle is complete.

Does it require any special wiring?

No. The LG Washer/Dryer Combo uses 115 volt,15 amp standard wiring.

Can it be raised off the floor?

Yes, as long as the base is level, and is of very sturdy construction.

How long does it take to wash and dry a load of clothes?

The amount of time it takes to wash and dry a load of clothes depends on the type and size of the load (delicates, permanent press, or cottons). The average combined wash-and-dry time is 2 1/2 to 3 hours. This approximates the total time it takes to both wash and dry a comparable load of clothing in a separate washer and dryer system.

What Is the LG Direct Drive Motor?

What Is Direct Drive?

Direct Drive is state-of-the-art technology that integrates the washing machine’s motor, belt, and pulley into a single, quiet, and durable mechanism, attached directly to the drum.

Durability

By integrating the belt and pulley, Direct Drive reduces the chance of defects.

Less Vibration

Having the motor attached directly to the drum means a more stable, balanced system.

Low Noise

By removing the brush, the LG Direct Drive system eliminates unpleasant frictional noises.

Guarantee

Direct Drive parts carry a 10-year warranty.

Water Efficiency and Washers

LG Steam Direct Drive washing machines are designed to make efficient use of water, and reduce energy consumption. They exceed the Energy Saving Trust®’s recommended standards for energy-efficient consumer products.

Steam Direct Drive washing machines have an extra-large capacity, letting you do more laundry in fewer loads. Combine that with steam technology that also reduces water and energy use, and you’re talking about a 51% reduction in electricity consumption, and a 44% reduction in water consumption, compared to standard washers.

Why save water?

Due to our ever-growing population—both in the United Kingdom and around the world—demands on our water resources have increased. Reduce your household’s water waste—without reducing your activities or relied-on services—by installing high-efficiency appliances that can cut indoor water use by about 30%. You’ll also see a substantial savings on your water and energy bills.
From the Energy Saving Trust® website:
“Did you know that switching to an Energy Saving Recommended washing machine could cut your energy consumption by up to a third compared to an old washing machine? It can also save you up to £11 a year on your electricity bills and 45 kilograms of CO2.”
