5 2. Direct Drive systemLG recently adopt new advanced technology so called “Direct drive” system to its new washerand wash & dry combo unit . Without belt and belt pulley, motor itself is connected tothe drum tub. It results a great improvement in reducing noise and improving energy efficiency.
6 2. Brushless Motor system Not like conventional washer that using brush DC motor, LG washer use Brushless DC motorin it so that the durability, quietness and efficiency is greatly improved.BrushRotor(Magnetized bycurrent)Stator(Magnetized by current)Brush delivers electric signals to rotate the coiled rotor.● Brush makes frictional sound.● Coiled rotor needs electricity.● Brush abrades and needs replacement.Rotor is a permanent magnet. Multi-coiled stator isbig and powerful enough to replace the pulley.★ Powerful & Reliable control★ Minimum vibration & noise★ Optimum energy consumption(brushless)(with brush)CoilConventional Motor (Universal motor)LG’s New Motor (Direct Drive)(permanent-magnet)Rotating Shaft

11 2. Unbalance Sensing theory * During spin cycle, if total amount of rpm changing (speed changing) is over the allowed levelwhich is set in the Micom, the washing machine starts an untangling cycle. ( i.e, if the Micomdecides that the load is out of balanced, the washing machine starts the untangling course.)* If the total amount of rpm changing ( Δspeed changing) is still incorrect after the untanglingcourse has been carried out the required times, it displays the “ UE” error message.rpm3.Period getting theeccentricity Data4.Spinningstart100 rpmSensingperiod50 rpm2.UntanglingO.K5sec.10sec.5sec.5sec.1.Rinsing finish/Spinning start12sec.

Suds sensing functionDuring Washing cycleSuds sensing during washing cycle is done by water level change regardless of motor operation.If frequency is lower than 23.3KHz, the machine decides it as a suds problems.In Perm press, Delicates, Wool/Silk, or Hand wash cycle, it does not work.Sensing and removing Suds during Washing cycleWashing ProcessLower than23.3KHzDraining for 1minuteBreaking for 2minute3timesFill in water for 1minuteTotal Required time : about 12minutesFinish

Suds sensing function During Spinning cycle 3times Sensing and removing Sudsduring Spin cycleDuring Spinning cycle• The micom recognizes it as suds problem when: 1) the spinning speed doesnot reach 270rpm in 10 sec.2) the water pressure islower than 24.0kHz during intermittent spin.3) the water pressure islower than 24.4kHz during high speed spin.• When suds is detected, spinning is stopped and the Suds remove program is started. And then the Water supplying and draining are proceeded until suds is not detected.Spinning ProcessSuds sensedFill in waterfor 1 minuteBreaking for 2minuteDrain for2 minuteFinish3times
15 2. High Cleaning Performance RollerJetsCirculation SystemThe washing balls increase cleaning power byshooting out water this decreases laundryrubbing together and thus reduces damage toyour laundry.It is Circulation Shower System that sprayswater from the top down decreasing water,detergent and energy consumption whileat the same time increasing washing power.Heavy Lifter ▶Powerfully lifta bulky laundryShower ConnectorHole ▶ Shower Fn.(At peak point)Ball ▶Bearing Fn.(Decrease rubbing)Inside of the drum

This process returns the moisture to water, which is pumped away to a drain line. The some of steam is away througth the dispense and vent.Largest washer with dryerPerformance10kg washer with dryeris first in the world.Use less condensing water than anyother washer with dryer.High dry performanceHigh energy efficiency2-step safety equipment13241:dry duct2:tub3:fan4:condensing duct
