LG’s big capacity top-loading washing machines offer strong hygiene benefits



LG Electronics (LG) has announced the release of its latest big capacity top-loading washing machines, equipped with powerful heaters that enable warm washing for hygienic cleaning results.The hygiene-enhancing capabilities of LG’s latest top loaders are largely due to the high performance heater. Equipped inside the full stainless steel tub, the heater increases the water temperature up to 65 degrees Celsius, creating a warm wash for more effective cleaning. With the stain care course, the internal temperature of the washer is raised to 40 degrees Celsius for effective stain removal. Meanwhile, the allergy care course employs 60-degree heat to eliminate allergy-causing germs and bacteria from clothing. “We designed these new top-loaders with the consumers’ needs in mind, making sure they provided greater hygiene and a bigger capacity,” said Mr. Hyunwoo Jung, General Manager, Home Appliance Division, LG Electronics West Africa Operations. “With world leading technologies like the 6 Motion Direct Drive, LG will continue to lead the global washing machine market and maintain its efforts to become the global number one brand in the home appliance market.” Also equipped is an innovative steam function, a first in the top-loading washing machine industry, which rapidly increases and maintains the temperature of the internal tub, further enhancing washing results. LG’s new top loaders are also the only top-loading washing machines to use the heater to hygienically clean the washing tub. Used in LG’s Tub Clean+, the heater raises the internal temperature to 60 degrees Celsius, helping to reduce dirt and germs inside of the washing machine. Tested by Intertek, LG’s Tub Clean+ course makes it 99.99 percent effective at sterilizing the washer tub. Furthermore, the full stainless steel tub results in up to 90 percent less bacteria growth than a conventional LG plastic washer tub. It has also been tested by Intertek for its ability to limit bacteria growth. Intertek is the leading provider of quality, safety, testing, inspection and certification.  SEE MORE ON PAGE2
