features of your new samsung
washing machine
Your new washing machine will change the way you feel about doing laundry. From its
specialised Eco Bubble function to its energy efficiency, your new Samsung washing
machine has all the benefits to make washing laundry as easy and pleasant as possible.
• Energy Saving
This model offers more efficient energy use compared to a standard A rated machine thanks
to the special Bubble generator and Digital Inverter motor.
• Eco Bubble Wash
Samsung’s effective Eco Bubble delivers improved cleanliness with advanced fabric care. Eco Bubble
allows detergent to distribute evenly and penetrate fabrics faster and deeper.
• Less Noise & Vibration
This Samsung washer performs very quietly, minimizing noise and vibration with smart control
technology, which enables it to maintain the lowest possible levels of vibration. Thus, the
drum keeps perfect balanced.
• Quick Wash
No time to waste! The Quick Wash program can help you in your busy life - now you can
wash your favorite clothes (up to 2 Kg) in just 15 minutes!
• Eco Drum Clean
Using Eco Drum Clean helps to keep washing machine clean even without any chemical
detergent or bleach. Keep your drum clean and odorless with this specialized high cleaning
program.
• Baby Care
Your Samsung washing machine includes wash programs that add protection to the clothing
of children with sensitive skin. These programs reduce skin irritation 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’s clothes feel refreshingly
clean whenever they are put on.
• Hand Wash
Special care can be delivered by the appropriate temperature, a gentle wash action and the
appropriate amount of water.

CHECKING THE PARTS
Carefully unpack your washing machine, and make sure you’ve received all of the parts shown below.
If your washing machine was damaged during shipping, or if you do not have all of the parts, contact
Samsung Customer Service or your Samsung dealer.

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 220-240 V / 50 Hz 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 120 cm 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.

WF906U4SA-03147L_EN_20120423.indd Sec4:14
2012-04-23
9:17:27
Drain
Samsung recommends a standpipe height of 65 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.
01 SETTING UP
Flooring
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

STEP 3
Adjusting the Levelling feet
When installing your washing machine, ensure that the power plug, the water supply and
the drain are easily accessible.
01 SETTING UP
1. Slide the washing machine into position.
2. Level your washing
machine by turning the
levelling feet in and out as
necessary by hand.
3. When your washing machine is level, tighten the nuts using
the wrench supplied with your washing machine.
STEP 4
Connecting the water and drain
Connecting the water supply hose
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.
Option
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
retightening the fitting.
For selected models with an additional hot water intake:
1. Take the red L-shaped arm fitting for the hot water supply hose and connect it to the hot
water supply intake on the back of the machine. Tighten by hand.
2. Connect the other end of the hot water supply hose to your sink’s hot water tap and tighten
it by hand.

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 Bedding cover, the wash time may be lengthened or the spin
efficiency may be degraded.
• For Bedding or Bedding cover, the recommended load capacity is 2.5 kg or less.
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.

result in damage to the texture or a problem with the washing machine.
In the Eco Drum Clean course, never use normal detergent.
Use only 1/10 of the amount of the drum cleansing agent recommended by the
cleansing agent manufacturer.
Since using a chlorine bleaching agent may discolour the product, be sure to use only
oxygen bleaching agents.
Powder-type cleansing agent: Use a [powder-type bleaching agent] or a [cleansing agent for
drum cleaning only].
Liquid-type cleansing agent: Use a [liquid-type oxygen bleaching agent] or a [cleansing agent
for drum cleaning only].

03 CLEANING AND MAINTAINING
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
34). Otherwise the performance of the bubble function
may lower down.
DRAINING THE WASHING MACHINE IN AN EMERGENCY
1. Unplug the washing machine from the power supply.
2. Open the filter cover by pressing down and pulling its
handle.

CLEANING THE DEBRIS FILTER
We recommend cleaning the debris filter 5 or 6 times a year, or when the error message of “5E” is
displayed. (Refer to “Draining the washing machine in an emergency” in the previous section.)
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 33.)
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.
Debris filter cap
5. Wash any dirt or other material from the debris filter. Make
sure the drain pump propeller behind the debris filter is not
blocked.
6. Replace the debris filter cap.
7. Replace the filter cover.
CAUTION
Do not open the debris filter cap while the machine is running or hot
water may flow out.
•
Make sure to replace the filter cap after the filter cleaning. If the filter is out of the machine, your
washing machine may malfunction or leak water.
•
The filter should be fully assembled after the filter cleaning.
CLEANING THE EXTERIOR
1. Wipe the washing machine surfaces, including the control panel, with a soft cloth using a
nonabrasive household detergent.
2. Use a soft cloth to dry the surfaces.
3. Do not pour water onto the washing machine.

CLEANING THE WATER HOSE MESH FILTER
You should clean the water hose mesh filter at least once a year, or when the error message of “4E” is
displayed:
1. Turn off the water supply to the washing machine.
2. Unscrew the hose from the back of the washing machine. To prevent water from gushing out
due to the air pressure in the hose, cover the hose with a cloth.
3. Gently pull out the mesh filter from the end of the hose using a pair of pliers and rinse it under
water until clean. Also clean inside and outside the threaded connector.
4. Push the filter back into place.
5. Screw the hose back onto the washing machine.

STORING YOUR WASHING MACHINE
If you need to store your washing machine for an extended time, it’s better to drain and disconnect it.
Washing machines can be damaged if water is left in the hoses and internal components before storage.
1. Select the Cotton cycle and push the Quick Wash button and run your washing machine
through the cycle without a load.
2. Turn the water taps off and disconnect the inlet hoses.
3. Unplug your washing machine from the electrical outlet, and leave your washing machine
door open to allow air to circulate inside the tumbler.
If your washing machine has been stored in below-freezing temperatures, allow time for any
leftover water in your washing machine to thaw out before using it.

1. Annual energy consumption is based on 220 standard washing cycles for cotton programs at 60 °C and
40 °C at full and partial load, and the consumption of off and left-on modes. Actual energy consumption
will depend on how the appliance is used.
2. Annual water consumption is based on 220 standard washing cycles for cotton programs at 60 °C and
40 °C at full and partial load. Actual water consumption will depend on how the appliance is used.
3. Spin extraction is very important when you use a clothes dryer to dry your clothes.
The energy for drying costs much higher than the energy for washing.
Wasing with the high spin saves more energy in drying your clothes in a clothes dryer.
4. The ‘standard cotton 60 °C program’ and ‘standard cotton 40 °C program’, which can be selected
by adding the Intensive option to the cotton 60 °C and cotton 40 °C program, are suitable to
clean normally soiled cotton laundry and they are the most efficient (concerning water and energy
consumption) for this type of laundry.
The Eco Bubble option always turns on in the ‘cotton 60 °C program’ and ‘cotton 40 °C
program’.
Please run Calibration Mode after the installation (see page 20).
In these programs the actual water temperature may differ from the declared temperature.
