SINGAPORE, MAY 6, 2015 LG Electronics (LG) announces its 2015 washing machine collection which includes, Top Load, Front Load, Washer-Dryer combo, and Dryer only machines. With a vision to make life easier and homes smarter, LG designed washing machines such as LG Top Load Warm Wash Machine (WFT1571DD) and Front Load Washing Machine with TurboWashTM (WD-1410TS) that improve the effectiveness and the efficiency when doing the laundry. LG also introduced larger capacity 12/8 kilogram washer-dryer (WD-1628RDS) to cater to Singaporeans’ shifting demands for all-in-one laundry solutions. Choices like the washer-dryer combination are ideal for consumers in Singapore, who are often subject to the vagaries of weather.  

 

With hygiene as the primary focus, the top load WFT1571DD comes with features such as Warm Wash, 6 Motion Direct Drive, Full Stainless Tub Clean and Auto Lint Clean System. The WD-1410TS is a front load washing machine that boasts the TurboWash™ technology. It is speed and performance, all packed into one. A complete load of laundry can be completed in just 59 minutes.

 

Best of Both Worlds Features: Top Load and Warm Wash Machine

The WFT1571DD is a top load washer that features the Warm Wash function. With the Warm Wash function, consumers now have the flexibility of washing with either cold or warm water by choosing the specific wash program. The machine will then automatically choose the optimal water temperature for the wash. When the Stain Care or Whitening Course is chosen, the WFT1571DD will wash the clothes with 40°C water. Alternatively, when the Allergy Care course is selected, 60°C warm water will be used. This cycle results in a 95% increase in removal of allergens. Warm water also enables better dissolving of detergent. The higher temperatures have been tested in the LG internal laboratory to be the optimal temperature for the removal of stubborn stains, dust mites, pollen and pet fur.

 

 

Cleaner Tub for Cleaner Laundry

Full Stainless Steel Tub
The WFT1571DD’s full stainless steel tub with the TUB CLEAN+ feature can achieve up to 99.99% tub sterilization[1] with the press of a button. The Full Stainless Tub is less likely to rust with the sanitary washing condition which enables the washing machine to remain in a clean state for a longer period of time.

 

Auto Lint Clean System
The Auto Lint Clean System removes lint and prevents bacteria from building up. Lint is filtered and automatically washed away during the drain cycle of each wash. This promises a more convenient wash as users do not need to clean the filter manually.

 

Delicate Washing with LG’s 6 Motion Wash Direct Drive            

At the core of LG’s washing machines is 6 Motion Direct Drive technology. Using a combination of six different motions, this innovative system helps to deliver a customized washing performance for a wide variety of fabrics. The motions help to dissolve detergent faster and even minimize wrinkles and tangles. 6 Motion Direct Drive emulates hand-washing techniques, combines optimized motions for each fabric type and delivers a powerful washing performance that is gentle on the fabrics. The Direct Drive motor also provides greater durability backed by a 10-year warranty.

 

LG’s Front Load Washing Machine – Impressive Time- and Energy-Saving Performance

LG’s front load washing machine is designed for the modern homemaker. Users today want reduced cycle times without reduction in cleaning performance. The WD-1410TS, equipped with the TurboWash™ technology, is the perfect solution for households who prefer to do their laundry on the daily basis without sacrificing too much time.

TurboWash™: The Efficient and Energy-saving Feature

The TurboWash™ — a feature based on 6 Motion Direct Drive technology — boasts an A+++ energy rating and the ability to reduce energy consumption by as much as 40 percent[2]. The WD-1410TS also integrates the powerful Jet Spray™ feature, which cleans clothes at a faster speed. Spraying water directly onto the load for a period of 120 seconds, Jet Spray™ enables TurboWash™ to fast forward an entire rinse cycle. With Jet SprayTM, the WD-1410TS is able to bypass the lengthy rinsing stage that conventional machines rely on to get the job done.

 

With TurboWash™ engaged, the WD-1410TS consumes 15 percent less energy and 40 percent less water[3]. This means lower water and electricity bills. By combining spin and rinse cycles, the most commonly used washing cycles including Cotton, Cotton Large, Mix and Easy Care take only around 59 minutes to complete.

 

Softer, Smoother Clothes with LG TrueSteam™ Technology

LG’s WD-1410TS and WD-1628RDS incorporate TrueSteam™ technology, which enables Steam Refresh, Allergy Care, and the new Steam Softener feature. Steam Refresh employs steam instead of water to help facilitate a deep clean. It also removes wrinkles and odors from delicate clothes. By injecting steam into the washer’s drum for 20 minutes, the Steam Softener feature works as an effective alternative to conventional chemical-based fabric softeners, resulting in softer laundry as the chemical-free treatment is less harsh on the fabric. LG’s TrueSteam™ technology also works to eliminate allergens, mites and residual detergent.

 

LG washing machines are available at Audio House, Best Denki, Courts, Gain City, Harvey Norman, Mega Discount Store and other LGauthorized retailers.
