machine
Meeting installation requirements
Electrical supply and grounding
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:
• AC 220-240V / 50Hz 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 in electric 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 120cm 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 305 cm 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.

2014/11/28 10:43:38
Drain
Flooring
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.
01 setting up
Samsung recommends a standpipe height of 65cm. 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.
Never install your washing machine on a platform or poorly supported structure.
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 – 50 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 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

Connecting the water supply hose
Option
1. Take the L-shaped arm fitting for the cold water
supply hose and connect it to the cold water
supply intake on the back of the machine.
Tighten by hand.
The water supply hose must be connected to
the washing machine at one end and to the
water tap at the other. Do not stretch the water
supply hose. If the hose is too short, replace
the hose with a longer, high pressure hose.
2. Connect the other end of the cold water supply
hose to your sink’s cold water tap and tighten
it by hand. If necessary, you can reposition the
water supply hose at the washing machine end
by loosening the fitting, rotating the hose, and

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.

• When the laundry is unbalanced (“UE” lights up on the display), redistribute the load.
If the laundry is unbalanced, the spin efficiency may be degraded.
• When washing Bedding or Duvet cover, the wash time may be lengthened or the spin
efficiency may be degraded.
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.
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.
CAUTION
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.
Please note the following when using the Wool course.
• Use a neutral liquid detergent for wool only.
• When using a powder detergent, it may remain on the laundry and cause damage to the
material (wool).

The ECO Drum Clean Auto Alarm Function
• If the “ECO Drum Clean” indicator on the display and the lamp
on the Cycle Selector are lit after a wash, it indicates that tub
(drum) cleaning is required. In this case, remove the laundry
from the washing machine, turn the power on, and clean the
drum by performing the ECO Drum Clean course.
• If you do not perform the ECO Drum Clean course, the
“ECO Drum Clean” indicator on the display and the lamp on
the Cycle Selector are turned off. However, the “ECO Drum
Clean” indicator on the display and the lamp on the Cycle
Selector are turned on again after two washes are performed.
However, this will not result in a problem with the washing
machine.
• Although generally, the ECO Drum Clean Auto Alarm appears once a month or so, the
frequency may differ depending on the number of times the washing machine is used.
• In case of the alarm, please also clean the debris filter (refer to “Cleaning the debris
filter” section on page 36). Otherwise the performance of the bubble function may
lower down.
Draining the washing machine in an emergency

If foreign substances accumulate debris filter, the performance of the bubble function will be degraded.
Before cleaning the debris filter, make sure to unplug the power cord.
CAUTION
1. Remove the remaining water first (refer to “Draining the
washing machine in an emergency” on page 35.)
If you separate the filter without draining the remaining
water, the remaining water may trickle out.
2. Open the filter cover by using a key or coin.
3. Unscrew the emergency drain cap by turning it to the left
and drain off all the water.
4. Unscrew the debris filter cap.
