Sponsored: How LG’s new Centum System™ got stronger, smarter, faster and longer-lasting…

A durable washing machine that does a seriously good job while limiting noise and vibration is what LG set out to develop with its new 12kg Centum System™.

And the results are certainly impressive. The Centum System™ uses state-of-the-art technology to make it one of the quietest and least intrusive washing machines around. And the knock-on effect of less vibration is that the machine’s durability is increased, as the motor experiences considerably less strain over the long term.

How does it achieve these results? Here are the key drivers to its success:

• The machine’s damping system cuts noise to a minimum.

• A dual-ball balancer is one of the most advanced ways of reducing movement in the machine as it goes through its cycle.

• The system includes a vibration sensor and a vibration insulator, which combine to keep movement to a minimum. This increases the machine’s durability and offers a quieter and smoother operation.

As well as these advances, the machines also offer a faster, more efficient TurboWash™, with a jet spray that targets clothes for a full 120 seconds. And with a wash time trimmed to just 49 minutes, the Centum System™ machines reduce water and energy usage by up to 17%, delivering significant savings on utility bills.

It has six different types of motion, controlled spin-speeds, and clockwise and anti-clockwise drum rotation, which help protect fabrics while delivering a high-performance wash.

With so many families concerned about allergies, the TrueSteam™ feature penetrates fibres to remove up to 99.9% of allergens from clothes, while there are further options to refresh clothes in just 20 minutes, or to steam-soften delicate items like baby clothes, avoiding the use of chemicals.

If you’d like to set your machine remotely while you’re away from home, its Smart ThinQ™ with wi-fi connectivity allows you to do just that. With Cycle Download, you can choose to download up to 20 wash programmes. And for troubleshooting any minor problem, LG’s Smart Diagnosis™ will have it sorted fast.advertisement

The technological advances that have powered the Centum System™ are backed by a 20-year warranty for the Inverter Direct Drive motor, suggesting LG is full of confidence about the system’s efficiency and reliability. The machines are also complete with a premium anti-scratch enamel finish, which ensures the front cabinet will stay looking pristine for years to come, with an easy-clean, corrosion-proof surface that’s easy to wipe down.

The new Centum System™ washing machines are stronger, more durable and longer lasting than before, making them a smart choice for anyone who’s looking for a state-of-the-art washing machine that works at a high level of efficiency – without attracting attention to itself.
