Lg’s Front Load Washing Machines Ranked First By Respected Italian And Swedish Consumer Groups
Jeddah, Nov 6, 2012 - LG Electronics (LG) announced that its F1495BD front load washing machine received top rankings from Italy’s largest consumer group, Altroconsumo, and an influential Swedish consumer magazine, Råd & Rön.
“We are honored to have our products recognized by such well-regarded consumer groups,” said Mr. John Lee, President of the LG Electronics Saudi Arabia.“Thanks to the Direct Drive Motor and 6 Motion Direct Drive technology, LG washers have received glowing recommendations in many of the world’s major markets. We will continue to maintain our number one position in the washing machine brand by further improving our core technological capabilities.”
LG’s front load washing machine (Model: F1495BD) received the highest scores in its category from Altroconsumo. The washer achieved the Ottimo (Excellent) ranking, Best Product tag, and the Buono (Good) grade, which is bestowed on the most time- and energy-efficient models. Altroconsumo is Italy’s largest and most popular non-profit consumer organization. It tests and evaluates consumer goods in the first and second half of each year, publishing the results in its magazine. LG’s washer was compared with twenty-six other models available on the Italian market, and rated on its ability in several categories, including washing, rinsing, drying, energy efficiency, noise levels and convenience.
Further recognition for LG’s front load washing machine (Model: F1495BD) has come from Sweden’s most respected consumer product-rating magazine, Råd & Rön. Impressed with the model’s wash times, energy efficiency and overall performance, the Swedish magazine gave top marks to LG for the second year running.
The strong endorsements can be largely attributed to the innovative 6 Motion Direct Drive technology and Direct Drive motor. LG’s 6Motion™ technology employs six wash motions, Tumbling, Scrubbing, Filtration, Rolling, Stepping and Swing, in various combinations based upon the fabric to penetrate deep into fabrics and provide great cleaning performance. The Inverter Direct Drive motor, a proprietary LG technology, eliminates the belts and pulleys found in conventional machines, resulting in increased power, reduced energy consumption and lower noise levels.
