LG Electronics, one of the global leaders in consumer electronics and home appliances, has announced that its DD (Direct Drive) motor which is a key component of a washing machine has been certified by Verband Deutsher Rlektrotechniker (VDE) - German Association of Electrical Engineering.

The General Manager, Home Appliances Division, LG Electronics West Africa Operations, Mr. Hyunwoo Jung, stated that the product was certified with a life span of 20 years, the longest yet to be certified by the VDE.

According to him, the internationally acclaimed body has officially certified that LG’s drum washing machine is capable of a total 4,400 loads of laundry for 20 years (based on 4.2 loads a week and 220 loads a year).

“The VDE certificate clearly states that LG Direct Drive motor has the longest lifespan so far,” he said.

He explained that the VDE, one of Europe’s largest technical scientific associations ensures that varied electric, electronics products and consumer goods undergo vigorous safety and credibility test before it is release in the market.

“For us at LG Electronics, we are delighted to be receiving this record breaking certificate on our drum washing machine home appliance from VDE, a world acclaimed institution. We will however not rest on our oars but will continue to make quality home appliances available to our teeming consumers,” Jung said.

He added that the LG direct drive technology has over time raised the bar for washing machines.

“Our latest Washing machine models are equipped with our innovative Inverter Direct Drive motor, which delivers cleaner and greener washing, and makes the washing machines more energy-efficient, durable, and quieter with less vibration.

“Far back as 1988, LG Electronics came up with DD motor which slashed consumption by directly connecting the motor with the drum, and applied it to its fully automatic and drum washing machines for the first time in the world.” he said.
