On this top loader I noticed that the handle on the lid has 2 sliders that can be used to lock the handle in place, or unlocked to allow the handle to rotate...why?

Answer: 
The locking hinged handle on the washer lid is actually there to aid in closing the lid. For someone shorter in stature, the handle can be unlocked to aid in closing.

Answer: 
That is so you can leave the vent open for better ventilation to the tub if the machine is not going to be used for a while. There are already vent slots in that lid, but they are smaller.

Which cycle for sheets/towels?

Just purchased. After looking through manual, trying to determine which cycle is best to wash sheets and/or towels. Manual states bulky/bedding is for items such as pillows, comforters and articles that have difficulty absorbing water. Do sheets and towels just use cotton/normal? Thanks in advance!

Momofthree I had the same questions when I first purchased my new LG Washer. I use bulky/bedding for large towels, large sheets, comforters, etc. I called customer service and found them very helpful on issues as this. The number is 800-243-0000. Very good customer service!

Answer: 
Yes, you can add clothes. When machine is on, simply push the power button (this puts the machine in pause mode) wait for lid to unlock, toss in your added items, close the lid and push the power button again to restart. Easy breezy!

Answer: 
Yes, the lid does lock. The only way you can add clothes mid-cycle is to pause the cycle. You CANNOT open the lid once the cycle starts.

Answer: 
I suspect that this is due to the fact that when the washer spins, especially at high speed, it depends upon the even release of water through the side holes. Without and even release in all directions, the tub becomes unbalanced. This could happen if a waterproof item were plastered up against one side of the tub during the spin.

Answer: 
Do not wash or spin any item labeled or known to be waterproof or water-resistant, even if the product care label on the item permits machine washing. Failure to follow these instructions could result in damage to your laundry, your washer, and other property damage as a result of abnormal vibration of the washer. This information is listed on page 18 of your owner’s manual.

No Permanent Press??

For dress shirts and khaki's and other pants... What cycle should I use?

Cotton/Normal? Surprisingly there is no mention of the word "permanent press" in the manual that I found.

Answer: 
Cotton/Normal is fine. But I prefer to use the Pure Color cycle adjusting the wash temp (tap cold), soil level (normal) and spin speed (medium). This is my desired preference. If laundering only a few I will use speed wash and adjust temp, soil & spin. I also choose these methods for my jeans too. Love how they turn out. I reserve Cotton/Normal for kids clothes. Hope this helps?
