LG Unveils Asthma and Allergy Friendly Steam Washer

LG Electronics USA has launched the industry's first top-load washer with steam technology Certified "asthma & allergy friendly" 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.*

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" cycle, steam gently but powerfully penetrates fabrics for a deeper clean and allows for the reduction of allergens and wrinkles. Allergiene, Certified by the AAFA as asthma & allergy friendly. 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 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."
