LG’s TWIN Wash System

KOTA KINABALUFeb. 4, 2015 — LG Electronics (LG) is pioneering new territory at the 2015 LG InnoFest (Innovation Festival) in Malaysia from February 4 to 5, with an entirely new washing machine category. Its revolutionary TWIN Wash™ System, the first of its kind, enables two separate loads to be washed simultaneously. With a space-efficient mini washer in the pedestal, overall cycle times are reduced with fewer loads required. Thanks to TurboWash™, wash cycles are faster while NFC translates to an array of intriguing smart connectivity options.

 

 

 “One might be tempted to call the LG TWIN Wash™ System disruptive, as it’s a completely new concept in appliances,” said Seong-jin Jo, president and CEO of the LG Electronics Home Appliance & Air Solution Company. “The addition of a mini washer underneath the main washer translates to greater flexibility, convenience and efficiency. It’s also another big leap forward in our commitment to using cutting-edge technology and innovative ideas to make life better for consumers around the world.”

 

Unique, Bold TWIN Wash™ System

LG is the first to offer the game-changing TWIN Wash™ System. This smart innovation lets users wash two loads at once, the first in the main washer and the second in the mini washer underneath. The mini washer is perfect for delicate items that require special attention or unique wash settings such as active wear or lingerie. Most importantly, it significantly cuts down on washing time as more than one load can be washed at the same time.

 

The TWIN Wash™ System is powered by the mini washer, the world’s first compact washer in a hide-away pedestal, generating a whole new set of washing options. This design concept enables users to take advantage of a second washer without having to sacrifice additional space in the house. When not in use, the mini washer serves as the pedestal for the main washer. The mini washer can be combined with any of LG’s front loading washers of the same size width.

 

Ergonomic Design

LG’s new washer was designed with convenience in mind. The transparent door is set in a higher position and tilted at a more accessible angle to eliminate the need for the user to bend at awkward angles to add or remove clothes. Detergent spills are now less likely with the sliding detergent box at the top of the washer.

 

TurboWash™ Technology

With today’s hectic lifestyles, speed is important. LG’s exclusive speed cycle technology, TurboWash™, uses twin nozzles at the front of the washer to spray a concentrated detergent solution directly onto the clothes. A high pressure nozzle above the drum sprays tiny water particles through the clothes during high spin cycles for quick and effective rinsing. With the speed wash option powered by TurboWash™ technology, washing times are reduced further down to 15 minutes.

 

6 Motion Direct Drive Technology

LG’s 6 Motion Direct Drive uses a combination of six different pre-set programs to deliver customized washing for various types of clothes. As effective as washing by hand, 6 Motion Direct Drive Technology helps to reduce wrinkles and damage in clothes, improving fabric care. And thanks to the advanced Inverter Direct Drive motor, LG’s eco-friendly washers operate quietly with few vibrations. The company is so confident in its motor that it backs it up with a 10-year warranty.

 

 

TrueSteam™ Technology

LG’s latest front-load washing machine incorporates TrueSteam™ technology with the following features: Steam Softener, Steam Refresh and Allergy Care. The Steam Softener function maintains the original quality of fabrics and eliminates the need for chemical-based fabric softeners. Steam Refresh employs steam instead of water for a truly deep clean, reducing wrinkles and odors from delicate clothes in just 20 minutes. TrueSteam™ helps in removing allergens, mites and residual detergent, all of which have been linked to respiratory and skin ailments.

 

Smart Convenience

Near Field Communication (NFC) makes it possible to quickly pair and exchange data between a smartphone and an LG smart appliance. Using NFC tagging technology, the user can download new washing programs such as Wool, Baby Care and Cold Wash. Moreover, NFC technology is also used in the Smart Diagnosis™ feature, which helps the user to quickly and efficiently troubleshoot almost any minor issue before it becomes a bigger problem.

 

LG’s Top-Load

Washing Machine

Top-Load Washing Machine

Equipped with high performance heaters, LG’s latest top loaders offer impressive hygiene-enhancing capabilities. The heater, built into the full stainless steel tub, is able to increase water temperature up to 60 degrees Celsius. This helps to eliminate bacteria and ensures outstanding results when warm-washing clothes. The new washing machines also include the economical High Jet Spray function, which reduces water usage throughout the course of each wash cycle.

LG’s new top loaders are the only models in the top-loading category that employ heater units to keep their washing-tubs hygienically clean.1 When LG’s Tub Clean+ is activated, the heater raises the internal temperature of the washer to 60 degrees Celsius to help to remove dirt and germs. The respected global testing agency Intertek has tested LG’s Tub Clean+ to be 99.99 percent effective at sterilizing the washer tub.2 Also tested by Intertek, the full stainless steel tub limits the growth of bacteria by 90 percent in comparison with a conventional LG plastic washer tub.3

 

With the full stainless steel tub and the Inverter Direct Drive, LG’s top loaders deliver greater hygiene and greater durability. Meanwhile, the soft closing door provides outstanding convenience and protects the user’s safety. LG’s thoughtfully designed door features a large, clear window that makes it easy to keep a close eye on the washing. And, when the user is loading and unloading, the soft closing door won’t close unexpectedly on their fingers.
