LG Electronics Introduces Top-Load Steam Washer

ENGLEWOOD CLIFFS, N.J., Feb. 5, 2013 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ -- LG Electronics USA has launched the industry's first top-load washer with steam technology certified "asthma & allergy friendly(TM)" by the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America (AAFA). The newest member of LG's 2013 Smart Appliance family, Model WT6001HVA incorporates smart technologies that, among other things, allow users to monitor and control the appliances inside or outside the home with mobile phone applications via Wi-Fi.* (Photo: (Logo: This new high-efficiency top-load washer is designed to deliver superior high-efficiency performance, offering uniquely gentle but deep cleaning capabilities, with the added benefit of odor reduction. The ENERGY STAR® qualified WT6001HVA also can use much less water than traditional washers.

During the exclusive LG "Allergiene(TM)" cycle, steam gently but powerfully penetrates fabrics for a deeper clean and allows for the reduction of allergens and wrinkles. Allergiene(TM), certified by the AAFA as asthma & allergy friendly(TM). has been tested and validated as capable of killing dust mites and removing residual allergens.

In addition to the advanced steam capabilities of the washer, its companion electric and gas Smart Dryers (Models DLEX6001V and DLGX6002V, respectively) feature LG's TrueSteam(TM) technology which generates real steam to reduce wrinkles and odors, and practically eliminates the need for ironing.

"LG is proud to be the first in the industry to bring these new technologies to top-load washers," said David VanderWaal, director of Home Appliance brand marketing, LG Electronics USA. "LG pioneered the use of steam in home laundry, and this new top-loader exemplifies our commitment to enhancing consumers' lives through the powerful combination of smart and steam technologies." This new LG smart laundry pair features proprietary smart technologies including Smart Diagnosis(TM),** Smart Access, Smart Adapt and Smart Grid.*** Smart Diagnosis alerts the user to technical issues, which allows customer service representatives to quickly and efficiently troubleshoot mechanical issues over the phone, limiting costly, inconvenient service calls and in-home visits. The Smart Adapt feature makes it possible to download all the latest services and technology upgrades like new washing cycle programs - such as Super Rinse or Baby Sanitize - via smartphone or directly from the machine's LCD panel. This is possible via a Wi-Fi connection or USB.

Smart Access allows consumers to remotely monitor their washer and dryer regardless of location. They no longer need to worry when leaving the house with the washer running as Smart Access makes it possible to monitor the overall status of the washer and dryer via smartphone. Delay Wash and Wrinkle Care can be remotely administered or adjusted and pop-up messages appear on the user's smartphone when a laundry cycle has been completed.

This laundry pair is Smart Grid-ready, meaning that once local utility companies deploy Smart Grid networks, consumers can re-adjust their function settings on their smart appliances to help manage energy consumption and save money. The washing machine can readjust its settings to operate during off-peak hours, when electricity costs can be lower. Simply put, Smart Grid technology is designed to help consumers reduce utility bills.

The introduction of the new smart, steam washer-dryer pair builds on LG's leadership in home laundry technology. According to a leading U.S. consumer magazine, LG top-load and front-load washers are among the highest rated, and LG washers and dryers have been rated Number 1 for reliability.

The new LG top-load washer and its companion gas or electric dryers are available now through selected U.S. regional dealers and expected to become available nationally during the second quarter. For a closer look at LG's latest laundry products, please visit

**SmartDiagnosis(TM) is designed to supplement existing methods of problem identification and may not be able to troubleshoot all issues.
