I mportant Safety Information READ ALL INSTRUCTIONS BEFORE USE WARNING! For your safety, the information in this manual must be followed to minimize the risk of fire or explosion, electric shock, or to prevent property damage, personal injury, or loss of life. IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS WARNING : To reduce the risk of fire, electric shock, or injury to persons when using the washer, follow basic precautions, including the following: ! • Read all instructions before using the washer. • Do not wash articles that have been previously cleaned in, washed in, soaked in, or spotted with gasoline, dry cleaning solvents, or other flammable or explosive substances, as they give off vapors that could ignite or explode. • Do not add gasoline, dry cleaning solvents, or other flammable or explosive substances to the wash water. These substances give off vapors that could ignite or explode. • Under certain conditions, hydrogen gas may be produced in a hot water system that has not been used for 2 weeks or more. HYDROGEN GAS IS EXPLOSIVE. If the hot water system has not been used for such a period, before using the washing machine, turn on all hot water faucets and let the water flow from each for several minutes. This will release any accumulated hydrogen gas. As the gas is flammable, do not smoke or use an open flame during this time. • Do not allow children to play on or in the washer. Close supervision of children is necessary when the washer is used near children. • Before the washer is removed from service or discarded, remove the door to prevent children from hiding inside. • Do not install or store the washer where it will be exposed to the weather. • Do not tamper with controls. • Do not repair or replace any part of the washer or attempt any servicing unless specifically recommended in the user-maintenance instructions or published user-repair instructions that you understand and have the skills to carry out. • See Installation Instructions for grounding requirements. • Do not use heat to dry articles containing foam rubber or similarly textured rubber-like materials. • Interior of washer and condensing duct should be cleaned periodically by qualified service personnel. • ALWAYS follow the fabric care instructions supplied by the garment manufacturer. • Do not place items exposed to cooking oil in your dryer, Items contaminated with cooking oils may contribute to a chemical reaction that could cause a load to catch fire. • Do not use fabric softeners or products to eliminate static unless recommended by the manufacturer of the fabric softener or product. SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS GROUNDING INSTRUCTIONS This appliance must be grounded. In the event of malfunction or breakdown, grounding will reduce the risk of electric shock by providing a path of least resistance for electric current. This appliance is equipped with a cord having an equipment-grounding conductor and grounding plug. The plug must be plugged into an appropriate outlet that is properly installed and grounded in accordance with all local codes and ordinances. • Do not use an adapter or extension cord. • Do not remove ground prong. • If you don’t have the proper outlet, consult an electrician. ! WARNING : Improper connection of the equipment-grounding conductor can result in risk of electric shock. Check with a qualified electrician or serviceman if you are in doubt as to whether the appliance is properly grounded. Do not modify the plug provided with the appliance - if it does not fit the outlet, have a proper outlet installed by a qualified electrician. 3

I nstallation Install or store unit where it will not be exposed to temperatures below freezing or exposed to outside weather conditions. Properly ground washer to conform with all governing codes and ordinances. To reduce the risk of electric shock, do not install the washer in humid spaces. The base opening must not be obstructed by carpeting when the washing machine is installed on a carpeted floor. In countries where there are areas which may be subject to infestation by cockroaches or other vermin, pay particular attention to keeping the appliance and its surroundings in clean condition at all times. Damage caused by cockroaches or other vermin will not be covered by the appliance warranty.

I nstallation Installation place requirement Level floor Allowable slope under entire washer is 1˚. Power outlet Must be within 60 inches (1.5 m) of either side of the washer. Do not overload the outlet with more than one appliance. Time-delay fuse or circuit breaker is recommended. It is the personal responsibility and obligation of the customer to have a proper outlet installed by a qualified electrician. Minimum installation spacing • Additional spacing of 1 in. (2.5 cm) on all sides of the washer is recommended to reduce noise transfer. • Most installations require a minimum 4 in. (10 cm) clearance behind the washer. • Companion appliance spacing should also be considered. 650 850 600 Positioning • To minimize noise and vibration, the washer MUST be installed on a solidly constructed floor. • Carpeting and soft tile surfaces are not recommended. • Never install the washer on a platform or weakly supported structure. A firm, solid floor is even more critical to a front-loading washer than to a top-loader. If your floor is wood and/or frame construction, you may need to reinforce it. Front- loaders use substantially faster spin speeds than top-loaders, causing greater vibration. If the floor is not solid, your washer will vibrate. You will hear and feel the vibration throughout your house. 6

I nstallation Level adjustment 1. Adjusting the washing machine level properly prevents excessive noise and vibration. Install the appliance on a solid and level floor surface, preferably in a corner of the room. Timber or suspended type flooring may contribute to excessive vibration and unbalance errors. 2. If the floor is uneven, adjust the adjustable feet as required. (do not insert pieces of wood etc. under the feet) Make sure that all four feet are stable and resting on the floor and then check that the appliance is perfectly level. (use a spirit level) After the washer is level, tighten the lock nuts up towards of the base of the washer. All lock nuts must be tightened. Diagonal Check When pushing down the edges of the washing machine top plate diagonally, the machine should not move up and down at all. (Please, check both of two directions) If machine rocks when pushing the machine top plate diagonally, adjust the feet again. Concrete floors • The installation surface must be clean, dry and level. • Install washer on a flat hard floor. Tile floors (Slippery floors) • Position each foot on the Tread Mat and level the machine to suit (Cut the Tread Mat into 2 3 / 4 inch squares and stick the pieces to the dry tile where machine is to be placed). Tread Mat is a self adhesive material used on ladders & steps to prevent slipping. Wooden floors • Wooden floors are particularly susceptible to vibration. Rubber Cup • To prevent vibration we recommend you place rubber cups under each foot, at least 15mm thick under the washer, secured to at least 2 floor beams with screws. • If possible install the washer in one of the corners of the room, where the floor is more stable. Insert the rubber cups to reduce vibration. You can obtain the rubber cups (p/no.4620ER4002B) from the LG parts dept. Important! • Proper placement and levelling of the washer ensure long,regular and reliable operation. • The washer must be absolutely horizontal and stand firmly in position. • It must not “Seesaw” across corners under load. • The installation surface must be clean, free from floor wax and other lubricant coatings. • Do not let the feet of the washer get wet. If the washer feet get wet, slipping may occur. 9

P ! reparation Before Washing WARNING - To reduce the risk of fire, electric shock, or injury to persons, read the IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS before operating this appliance. Before the first washing Select the Normal cycle, add about 1/2 the recommended amount of detergent in the dispenser, and allow the unit to wash without clothing. This will remove any residue from the drum that may remain after manufacturing. 1. Fabric Care Labels Look for a care label on your clothes. This will tell you about the fabric content of your garment and how it should be washed. 2. Sorting To get the best results, sort clothes into loads that can be washed with the same wash cycle. Different fabrics need to be washed in different ways. Always sort dark colors from pale colors and whites. Wash separately as dye and lint transfer can occur causing discoloration of white clothing. If possible, do not wash heavily soiled items with lightly soiled ones. Soil (Heavy, Normal, Light) Color (White, Lights, Darks) Lint (Lint Producers, Collectors) 3. Check before loading Combine large and small items in a load. Load large items first. Large items should not be more than half the total wash load. Do not wash single items. This may cause an out-of-balance load. Add one or two similar items. Separate clothes according to amount of soil. Separate white fabrics from colored fabrics. Wash lint producers and lint collectors separately. • Check all pockets to make sure that they are empty. Things such as nails, hair clip, matches, pens, coins and keys can damage both your washer and your clothes. • Close zippers, hooks, and strings to make sure that these items don’t snag on other clothes. • Pre-treat dirt and stains by brushing a little detergent dissolved in water onto stains like collars and cuffs to help shift dirt. Do not wash or spin water-proof clothes. 10
