Sponsored: Why LG’s Smart ThinQ™ is transforming the way we use washing machines

Promotional Feature: The new-generation LG Centum System™ washing machine features a wide range of technological advances. One of the most user-friendly is SmartThinQ™ with wi-fi connectivity. This brings a new level of convenience and control, whether users are at home or want to program their machine while they’re out and about.

Simply turn on your washing machine and log onto the SmartThinQ™ app and do your laundry anytime, no matter where you are. It’s perfect for commuters who’d rather come home to a freshly washed load rather than one that’s been left sitting in the drum all day after an early-morning start.

The Centum System™ also offers a cycle download of up to 20 wash-programme options, all of which are updated annually. And almost any minor technical problem can be quickly resolved using Smart Diagnosis™, helping to prevent it becoming a bigger issue.


This impressive spec continues with the new system’s other technical features – not least its reduction in washing machine noise and vibration levels. The Centum System™ achieves this through a battery of defences such as a damping system and dual-ball balancer, plus a vibration sensor and insulator.

Less vibration also makes the machines more durable in the long term, and LG is confident enough to offer a 20-year warranty on the Direct Drive motor. The washing machine drum has six types of motion, with clockwise and anti-clockwise drum rotation and controlled spin speeds.

Performance is key for any washing machine, and TurboWash™ is at the heart of the Centum System™. Its powerful jet-wash sprays directly onto fabrics for 120 seconds, delivering exceptional washing and rinsing. And with energy consumption a key concern, it has trimmed back the time for a half-load regular programme to just 49 minutes, reducing water and energy usage by up to 17%.


A further advance is demonstrated by its TrueSteam™ technology, which uses the power of steam to remove 99.9% of allergens from clothes, plus a chemical-free steam softener option, making it especially helpful for families with young children.

The design has consumer appeal too, with a premium enamel coating to prevent scratches and keep it looking sleek and corrosion-free for years to come.

State-of-the-art technology makes LG’s new Centum System™ work harder than ever to improve washing performance and its Smart ThinQ™ function will make one chore a whole lot easier.
