Your new washing machine will change the way you feel about doing laundry. From
its super-size capacity to its energy efficiency, the Samsung washing machine has
all the features to turn a mundane chore into a pleasure.
• Baby Care System
Your Samsung washing machine includes wash programs that adds protection to the clothing
of children with sensitive skin.
These programs reduce skin irritation in children by minimizing detergent residue. In addition,
these programs classify laundry into various types and the wash is performed according to
the laundry characteristics so that children feel refreshingly clean whenever they put on their
clothes.
• Child Lock
The Child Lock function ensures that curious little hands are kept out of your washing
machine.
This safety feature stops your children from playing with the operation of the washing
machine, and alerts you when it is activated.
• Delay End

using your washing machine especially when you have to go out.
• Quick Wash
No time to lose! Less than 30 minutes wash will give you time to run out before it’s too late.
Our 29 minute Quick Wash program can be the solution to your busy life. Now you can wash
your favourite clothes in only 29 minutes!
• Delicates & Hand Wash Program
Special care can be determined by the appropriate temperature, the gentle wash action and
the appropriate amount of water.
• Ceramic Heater for Durability & Energy Saving (selected models)
Our truly innovative Ceramic Heater is twice as durable as regular heaters.

To reduce the risk of fire or explosion:
CAUTION
• Do not wash items that have been washed, soaked, or treated with gasoline, dry
cleaning solvents, or other flammable or explosive substances. They give off vapors that
could ignite or explode. Rinse by hand any material that has been exposed to cleaning
solvent or other flammable liquids or solids before putting in your washing machine. Be
sure that all traces of such liquids, solids, and fumes have been removed. Dangerous
substances include acetone, denatured alcohol, gasoline, kerosene, certain liquid
household cleaners and spot removers, turpentine, waxes, and wax removers.
• Do not put gasoline, dry cleaning solvents, or other flammable or explosive substances
into the washing machine.
• Under certain conditions, hydrogen gas may be produced in a hot water system–such
as your hot water heater -- that has not been used for two weeks or more. HYDROGEN
GAS IS EXPLOSIVE. If your hot water system has not been used for two weeks or
more, turn on all hot water taps in your home, and let the water flow for several minutes
before using your washing machine. This will release any hydrogen gas build–up. Since
hydrogen gas is flammable, do not smoke or light an open flame during this time.
Ventilate immediately without touching the power plug if there is a gas leak.
Unplug the power cord before servicing your washing machine.
Before each wash, empty the pockets of your laundry. Small, irregularly shaped hard
objects, such as coins, knives, pins, and paperclips could damage your washing machine.
Do not wash clothing with large buckles, buttons, or other heavy metal metal.
Do not open the door of the washing machine if you can still see water. Check that the
water has drained before opening the door.
Do not repair, replace, or service any part of your washing machine yourself unless you fully
understand the recommended user–repair instructions and have the skills to carry them
out. Work done by an unauthorized person may void your warranty.
Connect the washing machine to the water mains using the new set of hoses. Do not reuse
the old set of hoses.
Water inlet hoses deteriorate over time. Check the hoses periodically for bulges, kinks, cuts,
wear, and leaks, and replace them as needed and at least every five years.
All packaging and shipping bolts must be removed before the appliance is used. Serious
damage may occur if they are not removed. See page 12 “Removing the shipping bolts”.
Before washing clothes for the first time, you must run a complete cycle without clothes.
See “Washing for the first time”.

MEETING INSTALLATION REQUIREMENTS
Electrical supply and grounding
To prevent unnecessary risk of fire, electrical shock, or personal injury, all wiring and grounding
must be done in accordance with the National Electrical Code ANSI/FNPA, No. 70 Latest
Revision and local codes and ordinances. It is the personal responsibility of the appliance owner
to provide adequate electrical service for this appliance.
WARNING
Never use an extension cord.
Use only the power cord that comes with your washing machine.
When preparing for installation, ensure that your power supply offers:
• 220V~240V 50Hz 15 AMP fuse or circuit breaker
• Individual branch circuit serving only your washing machine
Your washing machine must be grounded. If your washing machine malfunctions or breaks
down, grounding will reduce the risk of electric shock by providing a path of least resistance for
the electric current.
Your washing machine comes with a power cord having a three-prong grounding plug for use in
a properly installed and grounded outlet.
Never connect the ground wire to plastic plumbing lines, gas lines, or hot water pipes.
Improperly connecting the equipment-grounding conductor can result electrical shock.
Check with a qualified electrician or serviceman if you are unsure if the washing machine is
properly grounded. Do not modify the plug provided with the washing machine. If it does not fit
the outlet, have a proper outlet installed by a qualified electrician.
Water Supply
Your washing machine will fill properly when your water pressure is 50 kPa ~ 800 kPa. Water
pressure less than 50 kPa may cause water valve failure, not allowing the water valve to shut
off completely. Or, it may take the washing machine longer to fill than what the controls allow,
resulting in your washing machine turning off. (A fill-time limit, designed to prevent overflows/
flooding if an internal hose becomes loose, is built into the controls.)
The water taps must be within 4 feet (122cm) of the back of your washing machine for the
provided inlet hoses provided to reach your washing machine.
Most plumbing supply stores sell inlet hoses of various lengths up to 10 feet (305cm) long.
You can reduce the risk of leaks and water damage by:
• Making water taps easily accessible.
• Turning off taps when the washing machine is not in use.
• Periodically checking for leaks at water inlet hose fittings.
WARNING
Before using your washing machine for the first time, check all connections at the water
valve and taps for leaks.

2008-12-01 ¿ÀÈÄ 5:40:28
Drain
Samsung recommends a standpipe height of 18 in (46 cm). The drain hose must be routed
through the drain hose clip to the standpipe. The standpipe must be large enough to accept the
outside diameter of the drain hose. The drain hose is attached at the factory.
For best performance, your washing machine must be installed on a solidly constructed floor.
Wood floors may need to be reinforced to minimize vibration and/or unbalanced loads. Carpeting
and soft tile surfaces are contributing factors to vibrations and the tendency for your washing
machine to move slightly during the spin cycle.
Never install your washing machine on a platform or poorly supported structure.
01 SETTING UP
Flooring
Surrounding temperature
Do not install your washing machine in areas where water may freeze, since your washing
machine always retains some water in its water valve, pump, and hose areas. Frozen water in
the lines can cause damage to belts, the pump, and other components.
Alcove or closet installation
To operate safely and properly, your new washing machine requires minimum clearances of:
Sides – 25 mm
Rear – 51 mm
Top – 25 mm
Front – 465 mm
If both the washing machine and a dryer are installed together, the front of the alcove or closet
must have at least 465 mm unobstructed air opening. Your washing machine alone does not
require a specific air opening.
INSTALLING YOUR WASHING MACHINE
STEP 1
Selecting a location
Before you install the washing machine, make sure the location:
•
•
•
•
•
•
Has a hard, level surface without carpeting or flooring that may obstruct ventilation
Is away from direct sunlight
Has adequate ventilation
Will not be freezing (below 32 ˚F or 0 ˚C)
Is away from heat sources such as oil or gas
Has enough space so that the washing machine doesn’t stand on its power cord

LAUNDRY GUIDELINES
Follow these simple guidelines for the cleanest laundry and the most efficient wash.
Always check the Care label on clothing before washing.
Sort and wash your laundry according to the following criteria:
• Care Label: Sort laundry into cottons, mixed fibres, synthetics, silks, wools and rayons.
• Colour: Divide whites and colours. Wash new colour items separately.
• Size: Placing items of different sizes in the same load will improve the wash action.
• Sensitivity: Wash delicate items separately, using the Delicate wash cycle for pure, new
woollen items, curtains and silk articles. Check the labels on the items you are washing or
refer to the fabric care chart in the appendix.
Emptying pockets
Before each wash, empty all the pockets of your laundry. Small, irregularly shaped hard objects,
such as coins, knives, pins, and paperclips could damage your washing machine. Do not wash
clothing with large buckles, buttons, or other heavy metal objects.
Metal on clothing may damage your clothing as well as the tub. Turn clothing with buttons and
embroidered clothes inside out before washing them. If zips of pants and jackets are open while
washing, the spin basket may be damaged. Zips should be closed and fixed with a string before
washing.
Clothing with long strings may become entangled with other clothes damaging them. Be sure to
fix the strings before starting the wash.
Prewashing cotton
Your new washing machine, combined with modern detergents, will give perfect washing results,
thus saving energy, time, water and detergent. However, if your cotton is particularly dirty,
prewash with a protein-based detergent.

Make sure to insert brassieres (water washable) into a laundry net (to be
purchased additionally).
• The metal parts of the brassieres may break through the material
and damage the laundry. Therefore make sure to place them inside
a fine laundry net.
• Small, light clothing such as socks, gloves, stockings and
handkerchiefs may become caught around the door. Place them
inside a fine laundry net.
CAUTION
Do not wash the laundry net by itself without other laundry. This may cause abnormal
vibrations that could move the washing machine and cause an accident resulting in
injury.

DETERGENT AND ADDITIVES INFORMATION
Which detergent to use
The type of detergent you should use is based on the type of fabric (cotton, synthetic, delicate
items, wool), colour, wash temperature, and degree of soiling. Always use “low suds” laundry
detergent, which is designed for automatic washing machines.
Follow the detergent manufacturer’s recommendations based on the weight of the laundry, the
degree of soiling, and the hardness of the water in your area. If you do not know how hard your
water is, enquire at your local water authority.
Do not use detergent that has hardended or solidified as the detergent may remain in
the rinse cycle. It may cause your washing machine to not rinse properly or result in the
overflow becoming blocked.
Detergent drawer
Your washing machine has separate compartments for dispensing detergent and fabric softener.
Add all laundry additives to the correct compartment before starting your washing machine.
Do NOT open the detergent drawer when your washing machine is running.
1. Pull out the detergent drawer on the left side of the control
panel.
2. Add the recommended amount of laundry detergent
directly into the detergent compartment
before starting
your washing machine.
3. Add the recommended amount of fabric softener into the
softener compartment
if required.
4. When using the Prewash option, add the recommended
amount of laundry detergent into the prewash
compartment .
When washing large items do NOT use the following
detergetnt types.
• Tablet and capsule type detergents
• Detergents using a ball and net
Concentrated or thick fabric softener and conditioner
must be diluted with a little water before being poured
into the dispenser (prevents the overflow from becoming
blocked.)
