Flexible System with TWIN Wash™,TurboWash™ 2.0 and TurboSteam™

Redefines Concept of Doing Laundry


Beirut, February 10, 2015—LG Electronics (LG)pioneered new territory at the International CES® 2015 with an entirely new washing machine category. Its front loading washer’s revolutionary TWIN Wash™ System, the first of its kind, enables two separate loads to be washed simultaneously.With a space-efficient mini washer in the pedestal, overall cycle times are reduced with fewer loads required. With TurboWash™ 2.0 and TurboSteam™ wash cycles are faster while WiFi and NFC translates to an array of intriguing smart connectivity options, including compatibility with LG’s HomeChat™messaging service. Twin-Wash-System_1-300x200.jpg LG’s award-winning Eco Hybrid™ dryer (Model DLHX4072V)won the CES 2015 Innovation Award,as well as the EPA’s ENERGY STAR Emerging Technology Award, thanks in large part to the dryer’s sophisticated Heat Pump technology, which enables greater energy efficiency and superb drying performance.   Ergonomic Design for Easier Washing The incredible ergonomic design of LG’s new washer-dryer pair (ModelsWM9500H*A &DLGX9501V / WM9000H*A &DLGX9001V / WM5000H*A &DLGX5001V)takes convenience to new level. The door is conveniently aligned with the drum’s center, positioned 21mm higher than on conventional models. It is also tilted to a more accessible six degree angle, so users don’t have to bend over as much to put clothes in or take them out. Visibility with the door closed is also increased and the newly designed sliding detergent box at the top reduces the like li hood of messy detergent spills. LG-Twin-Wash-System-02-230x300.jpg  Unique, Bold TWIN Wash™ System LG isthe first to offer the game-changing TWIN Wash™ System. This smart innovation lets users wash two loads at once,the first in the main washer and the second in the mini washer underneath.The mini washer is perfect for delicate items that require special attention or unique wash settings. Most importantly,it significantly cuts down on washing time as more than one load can be washed at the same time.   The TWIN Wash™ System is powered by the mini washer (Models WD100C* / WD200C*), the world’s first compact washer in a hide-away pedestal, generating a whole new set of washing options. This design concept enables users to take advantage of a second washer without having to sacrifice additional space in the house. When not in use, the mini washer serves as the pedestal for the main washer. The mini washer can be combined with any of LG’s front loading washers and is an ideal solution for small, specialized laundry items that require a gentler touch, such as active wear or lingerie. LG-Twin-Wash-System-03-230x300.jpg Turbo Wash™ 2.0 Means Faster Cleaning With today’s hectic lifestyles, speed is important. LG’s exclusive speed cycle technology,Turbo Wash™ 2.0, uses twin nozzles at the front of the washer to spray a concentrated detergent solution directly onto the clothes. A high pressure nozzle above the drum sprays tiny water particles through the clothes during high spin cycles for quick and effective rinsing.   Better Drying with Turbo Steam™ LG’s advanced Turbo Steam™ technology gives a speed boost to the new dryers. Thanks in part to the Steam Fresh™ function, refresh times are now up to 50 percent faster than in previous dryers.[1]When selected, Turbo Steam™ prevents over-drying by spraying hot steam onto clothes during the drying cycle, which reduces shrinkage, sanitizes the clothes and eliminates even more wrinkles.   Convenience-Enhancing Features LG’s new washer-dryer pairs are not just incredibly fast, they’re smart, too. The built-in Smart ThinQ™ technology adds a whole new level of WiFi convenience. Custom cycles can be uploaded to the washer, cycle statuses can be monitored via an LG smartphone app and alerts can be sent via WiFi when the cycle is complete. The washing machine’s Energy Monitoring feature provides helpful data while LG’s proprietary Home Chat™ service allows users to check the status of their washing machine using every day natural language.   LG EcoHybrid™ Dryer with Heat Pump Technology The LG EcoHybrid™ dryerhas been designed to achieve superb levels of efficiency, making it one of the few ETA (Emerging Technology Award) certified dryers on the market. Its cutting-edge Heat Pumptechnologyrecycles heat to save up to 53 percent more energy than typical dryers,[2] while the innovative Auto Clean System keeps the evaporatorclean and running smoothly. The dryer even excels at low temperatures, making it ideal for handling delicate clothes.   Top Loading Pair Enhances Convenience, Performance LG also introduced, at the CES, itsnew mega-capacity top loading washer-dryer pair (ModelsWT7700H*A and DLGX7701). The 5.7 cu. ft. capacity washer and9.0 cu. ft. capacity dryer are equipped with a new horizontal damping system that allows them to accommodate more laundry than similarly-sized models. They also incorporate LG’s time-saving TurboWash™2.0 and TurboSteam™technologies,delivering greater efficiency and world-class cleaning performance,while reducing washing times. LG’s latest toploading duos are equipped with the industry exclusive LG EasyLoad™ feature,a two-way open door system offering users either a hamper-style door or a swing-door. This unique setup allows users to easily transfer clothes through the top to minimize bending and dropping clothes on the floor. And LG’s top loading washer-dryers have a number of high-tech features in common with the company’s front loading washer-dryers, including 6 Motion™ and TurboSteam™.   Using NFC tagging technology, users can download preprogrammed wash cycles to their smartphones. The wash cycles can be activated by simply touching the smartphone to the washing machine’s NFC Tag On symbol. What’s more, the Smart Diagnosis™ feature helps to quickly and efficiently troubleshoot almost any minor issue before it becomes a bigger problem.   “One might be tempted to call the LG TWIN Wash™ System disruptive, as it’s a completely new concept in appliances,” said Seong-jin Jo, president and CEO of the LG Electronics Home Appliance & Air Solution Company. “The addition of a mini washer underneath the main washer translates to greater flexibility, convenience and efficiency. It’s also another big leap forward in our commitment to using cutting-edge technology and innovative ideas to make life better for consumers around the world.”   Key Specifications:  Front Loading Washer Dryer Pair  (ModelsWM9500H*A&DLGX9501V / WM9000H*A&DLGX9001V /WM5000H*A&DLGX5001V) 5.6 / 5.2 / 4.5 cu.ft.
