The following is a public safety notice from the Listuguj Police Department.
In light of a recent accident involving a young child getting injured by a washing machine, the Listuguj Police Department would like to take this time to inform parents and anyone who has young children to be aware of a certain type of washing machine which can be considered dangerous due to its loading fashion and ease of button access. The top loading washing machine by LG (model WT1501CW) with inverter direct drive, has front access to the control panel and stands just a little over 3 feet high. This easy loading, large capacity washer plays tones when the power button is engaged and has a delay lock feature which, when engaged, will lock the door immediately upon closing.
We are urging the public to be aware of the possibility of easy access and engagement of this certain type of washing machine. Please familiarize yourself and any child with the locking features this machine may have if it is in a location where it can be easily accessed by small children.
If you have any questions or concerns regarding your type of machine and what can be done to help prevent any accidents, please do not hesitate to contact the consumer service numbers on your type of washing machine if you do not have the owner’s manual, or contact the Listuguj Police Department and we will do our best to help.
Safety starts with prevention.
