New Slim Direct Drive Motor Dishwasher to launch this month
Sydney, 14 December 2009 - LG Electronics (LG), a global leader and technology innovator is extending its popular dishwasher range in Australia with the launch of the new Slim Direct Drive Motor Dishwasher with third rack.
The LG LD-1420T2 offers consumers practicality, smart technology and load efficiency, and is the latest product to be released by the electronics company following recent investments in its premium product offerings in the major appliance and cooking categories.
The new Slim Direct Drive Motor Dishwasher features a third cutlery and utensils rack. This additional feature, alongside adjustable middle and bottom racks, allows further convenience by responding to consumer needs as people continue to look for cleaning solutions that fit their lives.
Unlike conventional dishwashers with bulky horizontally mounted motors and sump and pump systems, LG's Slim Direct Drive Motor is positioned vertically. This creates a spacious interior with a fourteen place setting capacity and extra room for larger plates (up to 33cm and 35cm) on the outer edge.
LG's Inverter Direct Drive Motor reduces wear-and-tear and noise by utilising fewer moving parts, and comes with a 10 year warranty (2 years parts and labour + 8 years on motor part) to provide customers with additional confidence and security in the quality of their LG dishwasher.
In addition, the dishwasher features a unique UV lamp sanitisation process which reduces bacteria in the dishwasher during the final cleaning stage for a more hygienic wash as well as the Extra Hot Rinse Cycle. This technology increases the rinse cycle up to 80C, 10C higher than normal, which contributes to a more hygienic wash.
Glacel Lubrin-Zabat, Category Manager Home Appliances, LG Electronics Australia, is excited about the release of the Slim Direct Drive Motor Dishwasher and recognises the boost its launch will give the company in the kitchen category.
"The past few years have shown a significant increase in the popularity of stay-at-home cooking and a return to entertaining in the home. As such, people are investing in their homes, and in particular making the kitchen the hub of the household.
"As a result, LG has also invested significantly in our home appliance and cooking categories to ensure we continue to provide consumers with products that fit their lifestyle and provide ease and convenience. The release of the new Slim Direct Drive Motor Dishwasher works alongside recent new product launches in LG's major appliance range, including the European-inspired integrated kitchen appliances which all work to increase the company's presence in the category and reinforce our commitment to providing premium products," said Ms Lubrin-Zabat.
The stainless steel finish also provides consumers with smooth, clean lines that ensure the ultimate in sleek kitchen design.
The LD-1420T2 Slim Direct Drive Motor Dishwasher with Third Rack features:
  • 14 Place Settings
  • 10 Year Inverter Direct Drive Motor Warranty - for greater durability (2 years parts & labour + 8 years on motor part)
  • Slim Direct Drive Motor - the Motor utilises fewer moving parts to reduce machine wear-and-tear and noise. At the same time it increases stability and durability.
  • Third Rack - Height Adjustable for cutlery and utensils.
  • UV Lamp Sanitisation - activated after the dry cycle to reduce bacteria.
  • Extra Hot Rinse - enabling the water temperature to rise up to 80 degrees for a more hygienic wash.
  • Dual Wash - select desired spray intensities, depending on items loaded into each drawer
  • Half Load Option - this program can be selected when you want to use the dishwasher even if it is not full. With this option, either the upper or lower drawer alone can be selected to wash smaller loads to save you time.
  • Hybrid Drying System - combines ventilation and condensing drying for optimum drying results.
  • Adjustable racks - the middle rack is adjustable so you can cater for dishes of all shapes and sizes.
  • Vario Wash System - alternates water between the top and bottom arms for a more powerful spray.
  • Stainless Steel Finish
  • Water Rating - WELS 4 Star/13.9L per wash.
