Installation of drain hose

1. Do not use an extension cord or double adapter.
2. Have damaged supply cords replaced by the manufacturer or its service agents or a similarly qualifi ed person
to prevent danger.
3. Always unplug the machine and turn off the water supply after use.
4. Connect the machine to an earthed socket in accordance with current wiring regulations.
5. The appliance must be positioned so that the plug is easily accessible.
Repairs to the washing machine must only be carried out by qualifi ed personnel. Repairs carried out by inexpe-
rienced persons may cause injury or serious malfunctioning. Contact your local service centre.
• Do not install your washing machine in rooms where temperature below freezing may occur. Frozen hoses may
burst under pressure. The electronic control unit may become unreliable at temperatures below freezing point.
If the appliance is delivered in the winter months and temperatures are below freezing: Leave the washing
machine standing at room temperature for a few hours before putting it into operation.

Electrical connection

The hose supplied with the machine must be used. Old hoses may not be reused.
• The appliance is not intended for use by young children or in rm persons without supervision.
• Young Children should be supervised to ensure that they do not play with appliance.

Caution

Level adjustment

• Proper level-adjustment of the washing machine prevents
excessive noise and vibration. Install the appliance on a solid and
level fl oor surface, preferably in a corner of the room.
• If the fl oor is uneven, adjust 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 fl oor.
Then check that the appliance is perfectly level.
(Use a spirit level).
• The drain hose should not be placed higher than
100 cm above the fl oor.
• Proper securing of the drain hose will protect the
oor from damage due to any water leakage.
• If the drain hose is too long do not force back into
the washing machine. This will cause abnormal
noise and cause the machine to malfunction and
leak.

• Wooden fl oors are particularly susceptible to vibration.
To prevent vibration we recommend you place rubber cups under each foot,
at least 15mm thick under the washer, secured to at least 2 fl oor beams with screws.
If possible install the washer in one of the corners of the room, where the fl oor
is more stable.
Insert the rubber cups to reduce vibration.
You can obtain the rubber cups (p/no.4620ER4002B) from the LG spares dept.

Safety instructions for use

Safety instuctions for the installation

Install or store the appliance where it will not be exposed to sub-zero temperatures or exposed to the weather. Fit the power plug
to a grounded wall socket that complies with all statutory regulations and ordinances. Ensure that the base opening is free from
obstruction by carpeting if the washing machine is installed on a carpeted oor. In countries where there is a risk of cockroach
infestation or other vermin, pay particular attention to keep the appliance and its surroundings in a clean condition at all times.
Any damage which may be caused by cockroaches or other vermin is not covered by the appliance guarantee.
CAUTION about positioning the appliance
Install the washing machine on a fl at hard fl oor. Make sure that air circulation around the washing machine is
not impeded by carpets, rug etc.
Never try to correct any unevenness in the fl oor using pieces of wood, cardboard or similar materials under the washing machine.
If it is not possible to position the washing machine away from a gas cooker or coal burning stove, an insulation panel
(85x60cm) covered with aluminum foil on the side facing the cooker or stove, must be inserted between the two appliances.
The washing machine must not be installed in rooms where the temperature may drop below 0°C.
Please ensure that when the washing machine is installed , that a Service Technician can gain easy access in the event of a
breakdown.
Adjust all four feet using the transit bolt spanner provided to ensure that the appliance is stable, with 20mm clearnace between
the top of the washing machine and underside of the worktop.
CAUTION about the power cord
We recommend connecting most appliances to a dedicated circuit which is protected by a mains fuse. That is, a single outlet
supplying power only to the appliance concerned, without any additional outlets or branch circuits. Check the speci cations
of this owner‘s manual. Do not overload wall sockets. Overloaded wall sockets, loose or damaged wall sockets or extension
cords, frayed power cords, damaged or cracked wire insulation are dangerous. Any of these conditions could result in electric
shock or re. Periodically examine the cord of your appliance, and if its appearance indicates damage or deterioration, unplug it,
discontinue use of the appliance, and have the cord replaced with an exact replacement part by an authorized servicer. Protect
the power cord from physical or mechanical abuse, such as being twisted, kinked, pinched, squashed in a jamb of a door, or
walked upon. Pay particular attention to plugs, wall outlets, and the point where the cord exits the appliance.
CAUTION about location and moving
This equipment is not designed for maritime use or for use mobile installations such as caravans, aircraft etc. Turn off the
stopcock if the machine is to be left for any length of time (e.g. if you are going on holiday), especially if there is no oor drain
(gully) in the immediate vicinity. If relocating the appliance use the original packing material. Packaging material (e.g. plastic fi lm,
Styrofoam) can be dangerous for children. There is a risk of suffocation! Keep all packaging well away from children and do not
allow children to play inside the bowl as they may become trapped.
CAUTION about the fl oor surface
The installation surface must be clean, dry and level.
Install washing machine on a at hard oor. Poorly constructed timber base oors can contribute to excessive noise and
vibration.
Proper placement and levelling of the washing machine ensure long, regular and reliable operation.
The washing machine must be perfectly level and fi rmly in position.
It must not “see-saw” across corners under load.
The installation surface must be clean, free from fl oor wax and other lubricant coatings.
Do not allow the feet of the washing machine to get wet. If feet of the washing machine get wet, slipping may occur.

Safety instructions for use

To minimize the risk of fi re within the inner bowl, the following should be observed:
Items that have been spotted or soaked with vegetable or cooking oil constitute a fi re hazard and should not be
placed in a tumble dryer.
Oil-affected items can ignite spontaneously, especially when exposed to heat sources Such as in a tumble dryer.
The items become warm, causing an oxidation reaction in the oil. Oxidation creates heat. If the heat cannot
escape, the items can become hot enough to catch fi re. Piling, stacking or storing oil-affected items can prevent
heat from escaping and so create a fi re hazard.
If it is unavoidable that fabrics that contain vegetable or cooking oil or have been contaminated by hair care
products be placed in a tumble dryer they should fi rst be washed in hot water with extra detergent-this will
reduce, but not eliminate, the hazard. The ‘cool down’ cycle of tumble dryers should be used to reduce the
temperature of the items. They should not be removed from the tumble dryer or piled or stacked while hot.
Items that have been previously cleaned in, washed in, soaked in or spotted with petrol/gasoline, dry-cleaning
solvents or other fl ammable or explosive substances should not be placed in a tumble dryer.
Highly fl ammable substances commonly used in domestic environments include acetone, denatured alcohol,
petrol/gasoline, kerosene, spot removers (some brands), turpentine, waxes and wax removers.
Items containing foam rubber (also known as latex foam) or similarly testured rubber like materials should not be
dried in a tumble dryer on a heat setting.
Foam rubber materials can, when heated, produce fi re by spontaneous combustion.
Fabric softeners or similar products should not be used during a drying cycle, to eliminate the effects of static
electricity unless this practice is speci cally recommended by the manufacturer of the fabric softener or product.
Undergarments that contain metal reinforcements should not be placed in a tumble dryer.
Damage to the tumble dryer can result if metal reinforcements come loose during drying.
When available a drying rack could be used for such items.
• Plastic articles such as shower caps or babies waterproof napkin covers should not be placed in a tumble dryer.
Rubber-backed articles, clothes fi tted with foam rubber pads, pillows, rubber boots and rubber-coated tennis
shoes should not be placed in a tumble dryer.
