What is A.I. Direct Drive?
LG’s new A.I. Direct-Drive™ assesses both the weight and softness of your load before determining the
optimal washing pattern to use for fabric care and wash performance. A.I. Direct-Drive™ is available on Cotton,
Cotton Eco and Mixed Fabric loads.
When the drum tumbles before the wash, different levels of fabric softness provides different feedback (resistance) to the motor.
Understanding this, LG used deep learning techniques to develop an algorithm based on 20,000 washes completed in a lab. This algorithm is stored on the machine.
During the start of a cycle, the machine uses the weight and fabric softness, comparing this against the algorithm to decide on the washing pattern and 6 motions for optimal fabric care.
