Innovation from LG set to change the way Canadians do laundry

LG's new TWIN Wash™ now available in Canada

TORONTO, Dec. 4, 2015 /CNW/ - Today a huge 16-foot LG TWIN Wash™ laundry system was unveiled with tremendous fanfare in Toronto's Dundas Square by Martine Forget, star of W Network's Hockey Wives. The giant model of the innovative, new LG TWIN Wash system marks a massive change in how Canadians will do laundry. For the first time ever, it is possible to wash two separate loads at once. The LG TWIN Wash makes this dream a reality by allowing you to do two loads of laundry at the same time by combining a mini pedestal washer, with a large washer up top. The mini SideKick™ pedestal washer is perfect for those items that need special attention - small loads, or delicates go in the bottom, while regular loads can be washed up top.

"I love the TWIN Wash because you can wash jeans and delicate baby clothes all at the same time," says Ms. Forget. "Sometimes I feel like I'm constantly doing laundry and being able to do more at once really saves a lot of time. That means more time for the important stuff like having fun with your family."

Don't worry if you are in no rush to buy a new front load laundry machine, the LG SideKick washer (Models WD100C* / WD200C*) can be combined with any of LG's front loading washers purchased after 2009 and is an ideal solution for small, specialized laundry items that require a gentler touch, such as whites, lingerie or baby clothes.

The TWIN Wash main washer (Models WM5000HVA / WM9000HVA) takes clothes washing to a whole new level with LG TurboWash technology. High powered nozzles spray detergent for a more thorough wash, and water particles for the ultimate rinse cycle.

"The LG TWIN Wash System will forever change the way Canadians do laundry, saving loads of time and making it less of a chore," says Valerie Malone, Director of Marketing, LG Canada. "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."

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 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 Wi-Fi when the cycle is complete.

Ergonomic Design for Easier Washing
The ergonomic design of LG's new TWIN Wash washer-dryer pair (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 likelihood of messy detergent spills.

A Great Washer Needs a Great Dryer
LG's advanced Turbo Steam™ technology gives a speed boost to the new dryers. 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.
