LG Electronics, the global leader and technology innovator in consumer electronics, mobile communications and home appliances, has received notable recognition through a study conducted by the German VDE Lab, verifying that the Direct Drive Motor of LG’s washing machines endures a whopping ten year lifespan.
The extensive study, which VDE carried out at LG’s Washing Machine Factory in Korea, showed that the Direct Drive Motor of washing machines manufactured by LG Electronics had zero defects during full, completely sealed 2,200 cycles, ensuring complete authenticity of the testing process which lasted from November 4th, 2009 – February 2nd, 2011. The verification inspected mechanical defects, electrical safety defects, vibration, noise and power consumption – all of which have stood the test, proving the remarkable 10 year lifetime of LG’s washing machines, and putting the breakthrough technology in a league of its own.
Mr. Kevin Cha, LG Electronics Levant Managing Director, commented saying, “We are very proud of the results verified by VDE, the largest technical and scientific association in Europe; it proves that this advanced technology is made possible by the precision mechanics created by LG’s Inverter Direct Drive™ Motor, which delivers cleaner, greener, and more durable washing.” He further added, “Also, the results illustrate the competitive advantages of LG’s range of washing machine models, and show that our 10 year warranty greatly measures confidence in the reliability of our washing machines.”
The verification testing was based on consumer-centric methods of international standards, as well as third party programs, to ensure objectivity of endurance test cycle sequence and measurement items among other particulars. It is also worth noting that the testing was carried out in reference to standards of the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) in terms of performance measurement and safety, and to standards of the EU Directive in terms of energy labelling.
The results of the Inverter Direct Drive™ Motor testing seamlessly integrate with LG’s commitment to creating leading household innovations, ultimately ensuring that valued customers remain on the receiving end of the most cutting-edge and durable home appliances in the world.
