This is done by slowly filling the washer while checking the saturation level of the clothing. Once the clothing is completely wet, a sensor goes off indicating that the washer has enough water. Some cycles will weight the load to help determine the appropriate amount of water needed for the cycle.</p> </div> <hr /> <div> <p>LG Front Load Washers are high efficiency washers that use as little water as possible. It is <b>NORMAL</b> for there to be <b>NO</b> visible water line on the door of the washer.</p> <p>let's try some troubleshooting:</p> <ol> <li class="start" data-step="0"> <p><b>Are clothes wet at the end of the cycle?</b></p> <span class="answer-text"> <a class="btn small xfe_just_info" alt=" " data-btn="0" data-link="2">Yes</a> <a title="" class="btn small xfe_just_info" alt=" " data-btn="0" data-link="1">No</a> </span> </li> <li class="step 1 ans0" data-step="1"> <p>Unless the inlet hoses are blocked or the water supply is not turned on, this indicates the drum is overloaded.</p> <p>When the drum is overloaded, the outside of the item is saturated, but the inside portions never make contact with the water. Reduce the load size to ensure that all items in the drum are able to get wet and wash effectively.</p> <span class="answer-text"> <a class="btn small xfe_just_info" alt=" " data-btn="1" data-link="2">Next step</a> </span> </li> <li class="step 2 ans0 ans1" data-step="2"> <p><b>Is there a residue on the clothes, as if they are not completely rinsing?</b></p> <span class="answer-text"> <a class="btn small xfe_just_info" alt=" " data-btn="0" data-link="3">Yes</a> <a class="btn small xfe_just_info" alt=" " data-btn="1" data-link="3">No</a> </span> </li> <li class="step 3 ans0" data-step="3"> <p>Too much detergent can leave a residue in the clothes that may be interpreted by the customer as not rinsing, which they may believe to be the result of not enough water. In these cases, using the correct <b>TYPE</b> and <b>AMOUNT</b> of detergent is imperative.</p> <p><b>Notes for Detergent Use:</b></p> <ul> <li> Use only <b>HE Detergent</b>. <p class="note"><b>Note:</b> Some HE detergents are concentrated and thus require smaller quantities.</p> </li> <li>Do <b>NOT</b> exceed the amount recommended by the detergent manufacturer. </li> <li> If using pods, do not exceed 1 pod per load. <p class="note"><b>Note:</b>Pods may contain too much detergent for small loads.</p> </li> </ul> <ul> <li><p>Do <b>NOT</b> use the liquid cup insert in the dispenser to measure the detergent. The line above normal measures at 1/4 cup of detergent. This is too much for most loads.</p> <ul> <table class="table xfe_just_info xfe_thead_just_info" style="border-collapse: collapse;"> <tbody> <tr valign="center"> <td> <p><img class="xfe_just_info" src="https://gscs.lge.com/gscs/support/fileupload/downloadFile.do?portalId=P1&amp;fileId=BD_N-1432869659154" />&nbsp;</p> </td> <td> <p>&nbsp;==&gt;&nbsp;</p> </td> <td> <p><img class="xfe_just_info" src="https://gscs.lge.com/gscs/support/fileupload/downloadFile.do?portalId=P1&amp;fileId=BD_N-1432869659155" />&nbsp;</p> </td> </tr> </tbody> </table> </ul> <p>Instead, use the measuring device that comes with the detergent. Most loads can be washed with the least recommended detergent, which is usually measured to Line 1 on a detergent bottle cap. This amount comes to just below the bottom of the <b>NORMAL</b> word, barely touching the white overhang. For smaller loads, use less.</p> </li></ul> <p><b>Notes for Soft Water:</b></p> <ul> <li>Soft Water requires <b>LESS</b> detergent.</li> <li>Soft water means there are fewer minerals in the water. Detergents treat minerals in the water like soil, so fewer minerals mean less detergent.</li> <li>In soft water conditions, use <b>HALF</b> of the detergent manufacturer's recommended amount of detergent. If suds are still visible, decrease by half again.</li> </ul> </li> <li class="step 3 ans1" data-step="3"> <p>The unit detects the load and determines the amount of water to use. If the clothes come out clean and wet, then the unit is using the correct amount of water. To increase the amount of water in the cycle, use the <b>Bulky cycle</b> or <b>Water Plus</b> option.</p> </li> </ol> </div> </div> </body></html> <!-- // 디자인 처리할때 하단에서 파일다운로드 디자인 처리해서 확인할것 --> </div>
