Modes and washing time in a washing machine LG

Most users do not particularly study the instructions before using the LG washing machine. Indeed, what's complicated is: I loaded the laundry, turned on the program and started washing.

However, in order to obtain the best quality result, it is important to understand which LG mode is suitable for a certain type of fabric. Also, you need to choose the right temperature and spin so that clothing does not shed or stretch.

How to choose washing modes in LG

After reviewing the description of the modes, it's time to learn how to install and configure them. In general, all the EJ dashboard panels are similar. They can differ only in the presence of a display. In its absence, indicators are installed that let you understand which mode is running.

With the selector, you can select a wash program for each fabric. As shown in the photo below, after the function is selected, the corresponding indicator lights up. The display shows the time until the end, the degree of spin and the temperature of the water.

Below, below the display, there are buttons. With their help you can:

  • Start or stop washing.
  • Select the spinning power.
  • Set the temperature from 30 to 95 degrees.
  • Enable or disable the machine.

Next to figures 1 and 2, the display shows a lock. This means that if you press the keys at the same time, the panel is locked.

Buttons 3 and 4 on the screen are marked with an asterisk. So you can turn on the laundry for 1 hour and 35 minutes. The key layout can act as a diagnostic function.

Most users install only a few programs. The rest are used very rarely. The most popular washing mode in the LG car is the "Quick Program" for 30 minutes. Also "Cotton" and "Washing of children's clothes". The program of "Delicate fabrics" is used less often.

Other functions can also come in handy with time, so do not lose their designations.
