LG HITS THE BIG TIME WITH NEW ULTRA LARGE CAPACITY SMARTWASHER
Sydney, 16 June, 2014 – LG Electronics Australia (LG) today announced the latest and largest addition to its home appliances laundry range for 2014 – a new ultra large capacity washer (15kg) dryer (7.5kg) combo, which allows consumers to wash more clothes in a single load. With the large drum size, winter doonas or large blankets can be refreshed after being stored throughout the warmer months.
One of the first washing machines of this capacity to reach the Australian market, LG’s Front Load Washer Dryer Combo with TrueSteam™ (WD12595FD6) will provide Australian families with the ability to wash bulky items without the hassle and expense of visiting the dry cleaner or laundromat.
The new washer dryer combo comes complete with leading features from LG’s Smartwasher range, including TrueSteam™ functionality to better remove odours and dust mites, 6 Motion Control for customised washing actions, and LG’s Inverter Direct Drive Motor for minimal noise and vibration. With the ultra-large drum size of the 15kg washing machine, consumers will now be able to clean bulkier laundry items in the convenience of their homes.
“The impressive new washer dryer combo brings together all of the innovative features LG is known for with the extra clout of an ultra-large 15kg washing capacity.” said Lambro Skropidis, General Manager Marketing at LG Australia. “LG takes pride in creating products that anticipate the needs of customers, and our new washer dryer is no exception. Since bringing the range to Australia, the functionality, reliability, and stylish design of LG’s Smartwashers have been very well received.” he added.
Big Capacity – 15kg
The ultra-large drum size in LG’s 15kg washing machine means that consumers can wash everything from bedding, pillows, and even pet blankets regularly at home. With more items being able to be washed in one load, consumers will also be able to spend less time at the washing machine, leaving more time for other activities. Topping this off is the drying capacity of the new model, which weighs in at an impressive 7.5kg.
TrueSteam TM Functionality
TrueSteam™ has the ability to fluff up fabric fibres, allowing for steam particles to clean on a microscopic level. Instead of saturating a stain with a single drop of water, up to 1,600 individual steam particles work to attack stains and odours to effectively help remove them. Additionally, the LG Steam Direct Drive washing machines have been tested with the British Allergy Foundation and have been proven to help remove house dust mites from laundry.
Inverter Direct Drive Motor
LG's Inverter Direct Drive Motor has fewer moving parts than other drive systems, creating less noise and vibration and giving consumers a quieter wash. Durability and reliability are also addressed by LG's impressive 10-year parts warranty* on the direct drive motor.
6 Motion Control
LG’s unique 6 Motion Control rotates the drum at various speeds and directions for an amazing wash. LG machines featuring 6 Motion Control are programmed to choose optimum wash motions for a great wash and at the same time care for clothes.
LG’s 15kg Front Load Washer Dryer Combo with TrueSteam™ will be available from May 2014 and is valued at RRP $3,499.
