SEOUL, July 9 (Yonhap) -- LG Electronics Inc. said Monday its free-standing washing machine won the highest grade from a British evaluator.

The South Korean tech giant said the FH4G1BCS2 washer won the "as good as it gets" title from British consumer rights group "Which?"

   LG said the product received the highest grade of 89 among the 86 washers named to the "BestBuy" list of the consumer agency.

The company said it was able to grab the market's attention on the back of the inverter direct drive motors used in the washers, which can significantly reduce noise and energy consumption.

LG adopted innovative drive motors for the first time in the industry in 1998.

"LG washers' distinctive features such as the inverter direct drive motors and steam system have been consistently recognized in the global market," the company said in its release.
