ABOUT YOUR WASHING MACHINE
Out of Balance Interruption
The out of balance has 2 level which are low
level and high level.
The high level: Machine will be stopped,
caused by an uneven distribution of clothes in
the wash bowl. To rectify the out of balance
condition, open the lid and redistribute the
clothes evenly in the wash bowl. Closing the
spin stage of the wash.
The low level: The washing machine try to
optimize by reduce spin speed to avoid out of
balance to finish the cycle.
If you have frequent out of balance
interruptions, it may be due to your
washing machine not standing firm and level
on the floor. This can be corrected by adjust
the washing machine legs as described
in the Installation Instructions supplied with
your machines.
Touchpad Response and Lights
Always press touchpads gently.
Watch the lights on the control panel to see
the effect pressing a touchpad or turning a
program selector knob has, and listen for
“BEEPS”.
When you press a touchpad you will get a
short “BEEP” to acknowledge the entry.
If the option is not available at the time, the
machine will not allow you to select it. After
the machine has started, the entire wash
option touchpad will be disabled and machine
will give three short beeps to indicate the
touchpad is disabled. The Star/Pause To
Pause touchpad is still active but you need
to press and hold the touchpad for
minimum 1.2 seconds to pause machine.
This is to confirm that you really want to pause
the machine.
NOTE: All functions of the washing machine
will stop when the lid is open.

ActiveBoost™
(Only for SWT1043/SWT9043A/SWT1023A)
This product features the new ActiveBoost
Wash System that uses less amount of water,
and is more energy efficient,during the washing
process. It achieves this with just the right
amount of water needed, and by a detergent
pre-mixing system that minimizes detergent
residue even during cold wash to give you a
cleaner wash result.
Wash Operation
o
Water at 35 C is combined with detergent
to dissolve and activate it. Depending on
model, this concentrated solution is then
circulated or showered over the clothes in
combination with unique bowl and agitator
rotations to provide wash action at the selected
wash temperature.
Agitation
After the wash operation is completed, the
bowl is filled with more water. The low profile
agitator or agitator then moves in an energy
efficient mode, generating additional
mechanical actions.
Auto Water Level Feature
Your washing machine has selectable
“Auto” sensing water level option as well
as allowing you to choose a manual
water level if you wish. We recommend
you to use the Auto water level option to
ensure there is just the right amount of
water for the wash load in the machine.
In other words, it will usually give you the
best wash while also being the most
efficient in terms of water usage.
8
SAVING WATER AND ENERGY
This washing machine features water and
energy saving options.
To save energy, the wash time can be shortened
for a load of less dirty clothes by selecting the
appropriate wash program e.g. Fast Wash.
The washing machine is energy efficient and most
water efficient when used with a full load of clothes
and with Eco Rinse selected. You should use
Eco Rinse (where available) instead of Deep Rinse
to reduce the amount of water used for
rinsing clothes.
Your machine is most water efficient when
Eco Rinse is used as the rinse option.
Each time you switch on your washing machine the
machine will select most suitable rinse option for
the selected program. You can change rinse option
if you wish. The difference between Deep rinse and
Eco rinse is explained on the page 13.
POWER FAILURE RECOVERY
When there is power failure while
machine is washing or rinsing or
spinning. The machine tries to save
the settings at which stage the
machine is doing and then when
the power returns back the machine
will starts washing from the stage
where it is left off.

3.5 RINSE OPTION BUTTON
Pressing the “Rinse Option” touchpad
allows you to change the rinse type.
For most washes the machine
automatically selects “Deep Rinse” for you
There are four rinses to choose from...
Fast rinse, Eco rinse, Deep rinse and
Extra rinse.
Extra : Extra rinse, the
machine fills twice, giving
you two deep rinses.
Deep : Deep rinse the
machine fills once, giving
you one deep rinse.
Rinse
Eco : Eco rinse is a spray
rinse giving you maximum
water saving.
Fast : Fast rinse uses less
time then Eco rinse by
performing only 3 Eco sprays
but the amount of water in
each spray is increased.
How does Eco Rinse work ?
When Eco rinse is used, rinse water
is sprayed into the washbowl in pulses.
After each pulse the washbowl will spin
to remove detergent laden water from
the clothes.
Spin up
Spin down
Pulse spray of rinse water
Final long spin
The machine will go through a series of
maximum four pulses spray and short spin
cycles in this manner, depending on
program selection, followed by a final long
spin that removes the water from the clothes
to complete the full wash program.
NOTE:
Compare this with Deep rinse where
much more water is used.
Deep rinse, water enters the machine
filling up to the wash water level selected.
The washer agitates and finally empties
the rinse water through the drain hose.
Extra rinse, this is special option for those
people who suffer from allergies, this extra
rinse will provide two deep rinses to ensure
all detergent residue has been removed.
Eco Rinse and Fast Rinse CANNOT be
selected with Bedding program.
We strongly recommend you use Eco
rinse for your washes whenever you can.
There is considerable saving of water
when Eco is used instead of Deep or
Extra to rinse clothes.
Eco and Fast rinse is not designed
to be used with fabric softener.
Select Deep or Extra rinse if you are
going to use fabric softener.
Deep rinse ensures the fabric
softener is correctly dispensed and
thoroughly removed from your clothes
during rinsing.
Daily program rinse is fixed with
Deep rinse only

4. WASHING INSTRUCTIONS
These Washing Instructions are of a
general nature and you should get good
wash results by following them.
However, due to the variables of fabric
types, soil levels, detergent types and
available program settings you may find
some combinations of these which do
not always result in the perfect wash.
If for example you see residuals of
detergent or soils on some items,
please read the section Residues on
washed items paragraph.
Over time you will learn what is the best
set-up of programs, detergent and load
sorting for different load types and soils.
4.1 SORT YOUR WASHING
INTO SEPARATE WASH
LOADS
Lint collectors
Lint producers
- Corduroy
- Synthetics
- Permanent
press fabrics
- Towels
- Nappies
- Chenille/
Candlewick
NOTE:
Make sure that you wash lint
collectors separately from lint
producers.
Never wash whites and coloureds
together. Whites may lose their
“whiteness” in the wash.
New coloured items may run in
the first wash; they should
therefore be washed separately
the first time.
IMPORTANT!
Make sure that no metal objects
are left in the laundry (e.g. hair
clips, safety pins, pins).
Button up pillowcases, close zip
fasteners, hooks and poppers.
Each load of washing should
contain clothing which needs the
same washing conditions. For
example, you should not wash
delicate clothes with very dirty
work clothes.
Colour fast and non-colourfast
fabrics should be separated.
Knowing the type of fabrics you
have and how dirty they are will
help when you make selections
from the wash program options.
Some fabrics are lint collectors
and can pick up lint, dirt and
colour from other fabrics which
are lint producers. Some
examples are listed below:
Tie any belts or long tapes.
Remove persistent stains before
washing.
Rub particularly soiled areas with
a special detergent or detergent
paste.
Treat curtains with special care.
18
Wash bras, pantyhose and other
delicates in a mesh laundry bag,
which you can purchase from
your supermarket.
Don’t use the wrong type of detergent.
You must use a low sudsing detergent
designed for front load washing
machines or high efficiency top
loaders, such as Cold Power for Front
Loaders and High Efficiency Top
Loaders or detergents labelled “Matic”.
Don’t use soap-based products in
your washing machine.
Remove hooks or tie them up in
a bag or net.
4.2 PRE-TREATMENT SPRAYS
AND STAIN REMOVERS
WARNING!
Pre-treatment sprays and stain
remover can damage plastic
components on your washing
machine.
If you use pre-treatment sprays or
stain removers, apply them to the
clothing well away from your
washing machine.
4.3 DETERGENT
Good washing results also depend
on the choice of detergent and use
of the correct quantities to avoid
waste and protect the environment.
Although biodegradable, detergents contain substances which, in
large quantities, can upset the
delicate balance of nature.
The choice of detergent will
depend on the type of fabric
(delicates, cottons, etc.),
the colour, washing temperature
and degree of soiling.
Don’t use too much detergent. This
can result in excessive suds that can
cause low spin speeds, poor rinsing
and overloading the motor during spin
stages of the wash program.
Don’t use too little detergent because
you will get a poor wash. If you think
you need more, increase dosages by
only small amounts to avoid excessive
suds.
Quantity of detergent to be used
The type and quantity of detergent will
depend on the type of fabric, load size,
degree of soiling and hardness of the
water used.
Water hardness is classified in so-called
“degrees” of hardness.
Information on hardness of the water in
your area can be obtained from the
relevant water supply company, or from
your local authority.
Follow the product manufacturers’
instructions on quantities to use.
Not enough washing powder causes:
the washload to turn grey, greasy
clothes.
Too much washing powder causes:
sudsing, reduced washing effect,
inadequate rinsing.
Use less detergent if: you are washing
a small load, the laundry is lightly
soiled, large amounts of foam form
during washing.
19
5. DAILY USE
5.1 STARTING YOUR WASHING MACHINE
1. Connect the mains plug to the mains socket.
2. Turn the water tap on.
5.2 LOAD THE WASHING MACHINE
When loading the clothes into your
washing machine, there are four things
to remember:
5.3 ADD THE DETERGENT
When using the washing machine for
the first time,check that the dispenser
is set for the type of detergent you will
use. To do this, proceed as follows:
1. Pull the dispenser drawer forward
until it stops.
2. Lift the front of the drawer up and
forward to
remove it from the runners.
clip flap up for
powder
3. Check the position of the flap at the
rear of the detergent compartment in
the dispenser drawer.
(Factory setting is flap up for powder.)
4. Clip the flap down if you intend to
use liquid detergent.
1. Clothes must be loaded evenly around the
agitator.
For best result load small items first, followed
by large items.
For example, a typical load should be loaded
using the following sequence : handkerchiefs,
wash cloths, undershorts, pillow cases,
T-shirts, business shirts, tablecloths, sheets,
bath towels.
2. Clothes must not be wrapped around
the agitator.
3. The washing machine must not be overloaded.
Clothes must be able to move during wash.
4. The load should contain only three or four large
items, for example sheets. The rest of the load
should be small items. A mixed load of large
and small items will wash cleaner than a load of
all large items.
clip flap down for
liquid
5. Refit the dispenser back into its runners.
Remember: If you change the type
of detergent you use, the position
of the flap will need changing.
See picture.
6. You are now ready to add detergent.
Measure the amount required and pour
it into the detergent compartment of
the dispenser drawer.
add detergent

When using liquid detergent, some may leadk
out of the dispenser into the wash load earlier
than expected through small openings in the
back of the dispenser.
The openings are to help flushing out of
detergent.
7. If you want to use fabric softener, see
“Add fabric softener”.
8. Close the drawer by pushing it backwards
into the top panel of the washing machine
when you have finished adding detergent.
Don’t do these things:
Using too little detergent will give you a poor
wash result.
Using excessive detergent will create too
much suds and may cause overloading of the
motor during the spin stage of the wash
cycle.
To avoid excessive suds, reduce the amount
of detergent you use. It is best to use
detergent labelled low susing. Good quality,
front load detergent will perforn will in this
machine.
Use soap based products in your washing
machine.
5.4 ADD FABRIC SOFTENER
Before adding softener to the dispenser,
make sure the siphon cap is pushed firmly
down onto the spigot in the drawer.
The softener will not siphon out if the cap is
incorrectly fitted, is missing or blocked with
residue. You are now ready to add fabric
softener.
Measure the correct amount as recommended on the softener package into a cup
and then pour it into the softener compartment of the dispenser drawer.
Caution: Do not overfill the fabric
softener dispenser.
siphon cap
pushed down
add fabric
softener
Overfilling and then siphoning out too early
can cause softener and detergent to mix
resulting in staining problems.
The softener dispenser holds 90ml when filled
up to the MAX marker. Any level lower than
MAX will function correctly.
Caution: Only use the detergent
compartment for detergent and
the fabric softener compartment
for fabric softener.
MAX - Do not fill above
this height

21
5.5 ADDING BLEACH
Bleaching of clothes can
help to remove stains,
heavy soiling and to kill
bacteria.
Oxygen type - This is
generally a powder type

6. CARING FOR YOUR WASHING MACHINE
Your washing machine will give you long
and trouble-free service, if you follow
the instructions in this section. These
instructions show you how to care for
your washing machine.
2. Unclip the filter bag from the
column.
6.1 WHAT TO DO AFTER YOU
HAVE FINISHED YOUR
WASHING.
1. Turn the Program Selector
knob to the position “Off”.
2. Switch off the electricity at the
power point.
Squeeze tabs
together and
push out.
3. Turn the bag inside out and
remove the lint.
3. Turn off the water taps. This will
extend the life of the inlet hoses.
4. Leave lid open for a while. This
allows time for moisture inside
the washing machine to
evaporate and for any odours
to disperse.
6.2 CLEANING THE LINT FILTER
Lint is a collection of threads and
fluff which comes off your clothes
during washing. Your washing
machine collects this lint in the lint
filter. It is important to clean out this
lint filter preferably after each wash.
How to clean the lint filter:
(SWT8043 , SWT9043 , SWT1043)
1. Remove the Cap Agitator
and filter
column from
the centre
of the agitator.
4. Wash the filter bag and
dispenser cup in hot water.
5. Reassemble the filter to the
column and place it back in the
centre of the agitator.
25
6.3 CLEANING THE DISPENSER
The dispenser needs to be cleaned regularly, preferably after each wash. Inspect the
dispenser after each wash to see if there is any residue of detergent.
To do this proceed as follows:
Pull the dispenser drawer forward until it stops.
Lift the front of the drawer up and forward to remove
it from the runners.
Clean the dispenser drawer with hot water and a brush,
eg. an old toothbrush.
Dry the drawer.
Before replacing the dispenser back in its recess, clean the inside of the
drawer with an old toothbrush.
Put the dispenser back into its runners and close the drawer.
6.4 CLEANING YOUR WASHING MACHINE
To clean the inside and outside of your washing machine you should:
1. Wipe the surface with a mild dishwashing detergent and warm water.
2. Wipe dry with a soft cloth.
IMPORTANT: Never use solvents, aerosol cleaners,
spray pack cleaners, glass, cleaners, metal
polishes, caustic materials, scourers or general
household cleaners on or near top panel
and lid, control panel or other parts of
your washing machine.
26
6.5 CLEANING STAINS IN THE
WASHBOWL
Stains in the wash bowl can be
caused by:
metal objects such as bobby
pins, dressmaking pins and nails;
salt;
body oils and grease from very
dirty or sweaty clothes being
deposited around the top of the
washbowl;
excessive foam during wash if
incorrect or too much detergent
is used.
IMPORTANT:
Check all pockets before loading
clothes into your washing
machine.
Don’t leave wet clothing
(especially swimwear) in the bowl
for too long before you wash it.
How To Clean the Stainless
Steel Wash Bowl :
1. Wipe with a cleaning product
which is marked suitable for
stainless steel.
2. Oily deposits can be removed
by wiping surfaces with a mild
dishwashing detergent and
warm water.
IMPORTANT:
Never use bleach cleaners or
steel wool to clean the
stainless steel washbowl.
6.6 AVOIDING BUILD UP OF
UNDISSOLVED
DETERGENTS
If you only wash with cold water,
undissolved detergent and body
oils will build up in the washing
machine. This build-up can cause
spotting on your clothes.
To avoid this build-up :
do not use too much fabric
softener with cold water;
select a hot water wash at least
once a month;
always dissolve the detergent in
one litre of warm water.
27
7. HELPFUL HINTS IN DEALING WITH WASHING PROBLEMS
7.1 RESIDUES ON WASHED
ITEMS
Some detergents have ingredients
which do not fully dissolve and as a
consequence, may leave white
residue or particles evident on the
surface of darker clothes in the
finished wash load. Similarly some
soils may not dissolve fully, resulting
in residue evident on lighter
coloured clothes.
If you are experiencing residue on
some clothes, the following tips will
help:
Check that you are using frontload
type detergent to minimise
over-sudsing. You may find
different brands of detergent give
better results. Liquid detergent
may be better than powder in
your situation.
Pre-mix the detergent thoroughly
in warm or hot water to improve
the dissolving.
Reduce detergent dosage to
between a 1/2 and 2/3 of the
manufacturer’s standard
recommendation to avoid over
concentration (the lower water
usage requires lower detergent
usage.)
Some residue maybe
re-deposited lint, so be careful
not to have lint-producing items
in a load which has darker
clothes.
Select deep rinse and not eco
rinse to help flush more particles
away.
Reduce the clothes load size per
wash to give more freedom for
the clothes to move around in the
wash bowl.
Use another program as below,
which has been designed to
minimise residual particles (they
are in order of increasing benefit
and will help you choose the best
program for your wash load.)
– The Colours Program
– The Heavy Duty Program
7.2 STAINED CLOTHES - HINTS
FOR REMOVING STAINS
The guide to stain removal on page
30 may assist you in stain removal.
Treat all stains as soon as possible.
The longer you leave a stain the
harder it will be to remove. Try
soakers and stain removers first.
If you use pre-treatment sprays or
stain removers, apply them to the
clothes items in a well ventilated
area away from your washing
machine.
Avoid the use of hot water on
stains as hot water will set stains.
Use light strokes and don’t rub
the stain remover into the fabric.
If you use a chlorine bleach,
follow the instructions on the
bottle and dilute it before putting
it on clothing.
Test coloured fabrics on an inside
seam for colour fastness before
using any stain removers or
bleaches.
Test synthetic fabric on an inside
seam before using any chemicals
or bleaches.
NOTE:
Chemicals referred to for stain
removal are available from your
local supermarket, hardware
store or the chemist.
28
CAUTION !
WARNING !
Pre-treatment sprays and stain
removers can damage plastic
components on your washing
machine.
Do no use dry cleaning fluids or
solvents near your washing
machine. These fluids will damage
your washing machine and may
cause an explosion.
7.3 YELLOWING OR GREYING CLOTHES
Problem
Possible causes
Incorrect wash times and
using insufficient detergent
which can cause redepositing of detergent on clothes.
Greyness
Using incorrect type or too
much detergent can cause
poor rinsing and poor spin
performance.
Mixing whites with very dirty
clothes, eg work clothes.
Using soap flakes instead
of laundry detergent.
A build-up of oils in clothes
that come into close
contact with the skin, eg
underwear, T-shirts.
Yellowing
Ageing of clothes. Iron
deposits in the wash water.
Use of chlorine bleaches on
fabrics with resin finishes.
Incorrect drying.
Incorrect water temperatures ie. too hot or too cold.
What to do
1. ONLY use low sudsing,
front load washer detergent
in this machine, such as
Cold Power for Front
Loaders and High Efficiency
Top Loaders or detergent
labelled “Matic”.
2. Re-sort load, then re-wash
using program selections
suitable for the fabric using
hot or warm water.
3. If the water is very dirty or
very sudsy, repeat 2 above
reducing the amount of
detergent you use.

10. ENVIRONMENT CONCERNS
Packaging materials
The materials marked with the
symbol
are recyclable.
>PE<=polyethylene
>PS<=polystyrene
>PP<=polypropylene
This means that they can be recycled
by disposing of them properly in
appropriate collection containers.
Old machine
Use authorised disposal sites for your
old appliance. Help to keep your
country tidy!
The symbol
on the product or on its
packaging indicates that this product
may not be treated as household
waste.
Instead it shall be handed over to the
applicable collection point for the
recycling of electrical and electronic
equipment.
By ensuring this product is disposed of
correctly, you will help prevent potential
negative consequences for the
environment and human health, which
could otherwise be caused by
inappropriate waste handling of this
product.
For more detailed information about
recycling of this product, please contact
your local city office, your household
waste disposal service or the shop
where you purchased the product.
Ecological hints
To save water, energy and to help
protect the environment, we
recommend that you follow these tips:
Normally soiled laundry may be
washed without prewashing in order
to save detergent, water and time (the
environment is protected too!).
The machine works more economically if it is fully loaded.
With adequate pre-treatment, stains
and limited soiling can be removed;
the laundry can then be washed at a
lower temperature.
Measure out detergent according to
the water hardness, the degree of
soiling and the quantity of laundry
being washed.
