SYDNEY, 20 April 2015— For fashionistas who treasure  their frocks and for lovers of fabrics in general, the new LG SmartWashers offer the convenience of a top loader washing machine with features usually associated with front loader washing machines.  They also feature 6 Motion™ Direct Drive which uses unique motions of the drum based on hand-washing movements to provide an outstanding wash whilst also caring for your clothes.

 “Having sold more washing machines than any other brand worldwide in 2014 for the seventh consecutive year, at LG we know what consumers want and need from a washing machine,” Lambro Skropidis, General Manager Marketing, LG Australia said.  “That’s why with the new LG SmartWashers we’ve focused on providing advanced clothing care without sacrificing convenience.”


6 Motion™ Direct Drive

Washing clothes by hand can be tough to find time for. But with this LG technology, you’ll feel as if your clothes were washed the good old fashioned way! The drum moves in a range of unique customised motions so the washing cycle is not just dictated by speed and temperature, but the actual movements of the drum. Better yet, the unique combinations of motions for each different type of cycle cover every laundry need – from woollen winter items to sportswear and delicate fabrics. The six motions include..

6 Motion Direct Drive

  • • Waveforce: Gently removes dirt and stains from clothing using strong water currents.
  • • Compressing: Dissolves detergent with high-speed spinning & squeezing.
  • • Swing: Smooth wash for your delicate fabrics.
  • • Rotating: The pulsator rotates in alternate directions to help untangle clothes.
  • • Rubbing: The rubbing motion efficiently scrubs off stains.
  • • Agitating: The powerful current created by the agitating motion helps to remove stubborn stains.


But what about the central post/agitator?

Agitators are largely a thing of the past! Top loaders without agitators can not only clean clothes more gently, but it also means you don’t have to spend ages unknotting your favourite dress before a night on the town.


So what’s the verdict?

Eleni of The Galmatic

Eleni of The Galmatic trialled the new SmartWasher washing machine and was blown away by just how kind the machine was to her clothes.“Everything washed brilliantly and to my surprise came out significantly less wrinkled”, said Eleni. Giving the machine a full five out of five stars, Eleni believes the SmartWasher truly is the best of both worlds.
