LG’s New Vacuum Cleaner Line with Kompressor(R) Technology Helps Consumers Take Better Care of Their Homes and Families

LG Electronics is adding to its innovative technologies for the home with the introduction of its first-ever line of vacuum cleaners in the United States. The launch marks the global expansion of the product line for LG and extends its portfolio of home appliances that provide consumers with innovative solutions that help them take better care of their families and clean their homes.

LG vacuums are designed to clean effectively, provide ease of use and reduce allergens in the home environment by incorporating innovative solutions such as DualForce(TM) suction, Kompressor technology and a larger bin. These advanced features pick up dirt and debris across a wide suction area, compact the bin contents to hold more, and allow for easy disposal of compacted dust.

The company’s entry this spring into the vacuum cleaner market in the United States builds on LG’s position as a global player in cutting-edge vacuum cleaner technology, while underscoring its commitment to bringing the latest home appliance innovations to American consumers, according to Peter Reiner, senior vice president, marketing, LG Electronics USA.

“LG home appliance innovations provide consumers with something better in home care,” Reiner said. “Our new vacuum cleaner line-up, which incorporates industry-leading technology, such as DualForce suction and our patented Kompressor system with a larger dust bin, is the next step in helping consumers keep a clean and healthy home.”


LG’s new LuV200 and LuV300 vacuum cleaners provide consumers with tools they need to create a clean and healthy home environment. With DualForce suction technology, two additional air pathways pick up from both sides of the vacuum head in addition to the traditional center section, providing a wide suction area to collect dirt and debris, even on hard-to-reach edges, as LG’s upright vertical cyclone system rapidly spins air vertically to separate out dirt.

LG’s patented Kompressor technology utilizes the world’s first motorized compression system and a larger bin to compress the dust intake to hold three times more household dust than non-compressor models. The compression also allows for the clean and simple disposal of compacted dust.


LG’s new vacuum cleaners not only help consumers keep their homes clean but allow them to do so with ease and efficiency. With LG’s Click ‘N Go(TM) wand*, the vacuum’s radio-frequency wand allows consumers to control the unit remotely from the wand when it is detached from the base, making it easy to clean stairs, upholstery, and other hard-to-reach areas. Also included is a pet hair tool with an air-turbine powered horsehair dusting brush which is great for stairs and interiors, as well as removing pet hair from fabrics and carpets.

LG’s award-winning top-of-the line LuV300B features the industry’s longest cleaning reach, with an extra-long 40-foot cord and 15-foot hose*, making it easier for consumers to clean a larger area in less time without having to switch outlets multiple times to reach the entire space.


Building on the innovative allergen-reducing technology found in LG’s Steam Laundry systems, LG continues to show a commitment to reducing common household allergens with its vacuum line. The vacuum’s powerful engine provides superior suction power, picking up 99 percent of dust on hard floor surfaces and 70 percent of dust on the carpet, while the HEPA filter captures 99.97 percent of allergens such as dust mites and animal dander.

The LuV300B is certified asthma & allergy friendly(TM) by the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America (AAFA), the oldest and largest independent non-profit organization dedicated to helping consumers and patients with asthma and allergic diseases.

According to AAFA, LG’s unique dust compressing system is beneficial to consumers seeking to reduce their exposure to dirt and allergens released into the air when emptying the dustbin, helping to assure that allergen exposure at home remains minimal after vacuuming. The wipe-blade system can reduce the need to manually clean dirt and debris that can get stuck in traditional dust bins.


LG’s new vacuum cleaner units will be available this spring at a manufacturer’s suggested retail price of $399 for the LuV300B, available in Riviera Blue, and $299 for the LuV200R, available in Wild Cherry Red. LuV200R incorporates all the same core functionalities of the LuV300B, aside from the Click ‘N Go feature, and includes a 30-foot auto-rewind cord, the industry’s longest auto-rewind cord length.** Products will be available early in the second quarter of 2010.

The Consumer Electronics Association recognized LG Electronics’ LuV300B for its styling and performance with a 2010 CES Innovations Award in the Upright Bagless Vacuum Cleaner category.

“Across our brand portfolio, LG products combine innovative features, intuitive functionality, exceptional performance and stylish design to provide consumers with something better than the ordinary home entertainment experience,” said Michael Ahn, president and CEO, LG Electronics North America. “Our featured Summer Line Show products, from our 4-Door French-Door Refrigerator with automatic open/close drawers, to our mobile phone with touch screens, and our advanced new SL80/90 HDTVs, demonstrate how together innovation and design produce exceptional performance.”

Home Appliances

With industry-leading features, powerful performance and sleek, contemporary styling, LG offers a full suite of premium kitchen and laundry appliances, providing consumers something better throughout the home, helping make everyday household tasks such as cooking and laundry a more enjoyable experience.

LG home appliance products featured at the Summer Line Show, include:
Ultra-Capacity 4-Door French-Door Refrigerator (model LMX28987ST): LG’s French-door refrigeration line now features an ultra-capacity 27.5 cubic foot 4-door model with an exclusive automatic open/close bottom freezer drawer option. At the press of a button, the drawers automatically open, making it easier for consumers to access food or unload groceries. The drawer also has an assisted open/close function that allows consumers to slightly push or pull on the drawer to experience the automatic open/close feature.

Gas Cooktops (models LCG3091ST and LCG3691ST): LG’s new high-performance gas cooktops, available in 30- and 36-inch sizes, offer professional-grade features, such as a range in power from 5,000 to 19,000 BTUs, and feature professional-grade knobs and three heavy-duty continuous grates, covering each of the five burners for a professional look. Its contemporary stainless steel styling package includes LED lights that indicate when a burner is in use or may still be hot to the touch. Controls are placed at the front of the cooktop for easier access when the cooktop is in use.

Slide-In Electric Range (model LSE3094): LG’s first slide-in electric range features elegant styling with its stainless steel frames and its rich set of features, such as its 5.4 cubic foot capacity – among the largest available in the slide-in category, and separate baking drawer. Dual convection fans with three different settings evenly disperse heat throughout the oven for faster pre-heating and more uniform baking, and a gliding and rotating rack provides added convenience for home chefs.

Steam Dishwasher (model LDF9932ST): LG’s newest Steam Dishwasher offers sleek styling with its stainless steel finish and LCD display integrated into the top of the door. Features include the highly efficient TrueSteam(TM) technology, which offers the option of adding steam to any wash cycle and a SenseClean(TM) washing system that automatically measures the turbidity of the water and adjusts wash time during the first rinse in order to optimize water usage. Consumers will also enjoy energy-saving features such as a half-load cleaning option and a hybrid condensing drying system, which allows for faster drying, reduced spotting and superior energy efficiency.

Graphite Steel Laundry System with Washing Motions (models WM2701HV and DLEX2701/DLGX2702): Until now, washers only used one cleansing motion – tumbling – to clean clothes. LG’s new motion technology introduces four “dance-like” washing motions – rolling, stepping, swinging and scrubbing – using LG’s Direct Drive motor to increase efficiency and reduce noise and vibration. These innovative washing
motions care for clothes while saving time, water and energy. LG’s TrueBalance(TM) anti-vibration system also helps offset unbalanced loads in the washer drum, allowing for quieter overall operation.

LED Steam Laundry Pair in Riviera Blue Designer Finish (model WM2801 and DLEX 2801/DLGX2802): One of the largest capacity front-load steam laundry pairs in the industry, at 4.5 cubic feet, with a new eye-pleasing LED display, the Riviera Blue with LED is the latest version of the Steam Laundry Pair. It comes with a LED display, which takes the guesswork out of cycle selection, LG’s TrueSteam(TM) technology, including the exclusive Allergiene(TM) cycle, designed to reduce common allergens such as dust mites and pet dander on fabrics, and like all LG steam laundry systems, it is Energy-Star rated.
