features
• Last Settings Feature
This option loads the previous course settings.
The Last Settings feature automatically remembers the last course that was run, making it
possible to use the same settings as the last time the washer was used without having to
manually select all the settings.
• Diamond Drum
The diamond shaped drum creates a high water pressure, removing dirt from the laundry
effectively. The diamond drum minimizes fabric damage extending the lifetime of the fabric.
The glittering inner tube is both beautiful and powerful in the wash effect it creates.
• Fuzzy Control
Fuzzy control operates with best washing program by sensing the washload like artificial
intelligence.
• Tempered Transparent Door
Lets you observe while the washer is operating. Check on your laundry’s progress at any
time.
•Eco Storm
A giant pulsator creates a powerful water current, which is further accelerated by a tilted
center pulsator spinning at 360°. The resulting waterfall effect speeds up the circulation
of the water to achieve a cleaner wash using just a small amount of water. (A better wash
performance is achieved.)
•Wobble (Option)
Conventional top loading automatic washing machines rotate the laundry clockwise or
counter clockwise in 2 dimensions but Wobble Technology™ rotates the laundry by throwing
it around in 3 dimensions.
Since Wobble Technology™ moves the laundry horizontally and vertically at the same time,
the rotating water stream may seem different from that of other washing machines.
One of the features of the 3 dimensional wash function of Wobble Technology™ is washing
at multiple water levels and this may include a wash period performed at a low water level.
• Magic Filter
This unique Magic Filter ensures that all the lint inside the tub is captured for top quality
filtering results to deliver consistently effective cleaning results.
• CHILD-LOCK Function
This is a device to protect children from being accidentally hurt while playing with the washer.
(For more information, see page 11, 14.)
• Eco tub clean (Option)-Ultra Clean, Super Fresh
Samsung’s Eco Clean Tub is specially designed to remove dirt and biofilm in the tub without
special chemical detergent. This innovative function keeps drum extremely clean by soaking
and spinning only with the water.
• Aqua preserve (Option)
Samsung’s Aqua Preserve reduced waste of water by reusing last rinsed out water. After
rinsing the clothes lastly, the washing machine keeps the water before final spin-dry and use
it again to save water and your money!
(This function is only available to use when you select twice of rinsing)

01 setting up your washer
Must follow the checkpoints in order to avoid machine problems or damages on garments.
• If the below problems are caused by customer’s faults, separate service fee will be charged.
Checkpoints Before Starting Washing
Check if the clothes are bleaching or not.
• Add liquid detergent to a white towel and the garment where you can’t notice well. Then, rub
together strongly. Check if the color transferred to the towel.
• Be careful for scarves and imported clothes since they are easily discoloring.
• Check for stains or partial dirt.
• If stains are found, use the towel wet with detergents to rub on in a single direction.
• Before washing, the sleeves, collar, dress hem and pockets are pre-treated by brushing with
detergents.
The wrinkle-processed clothes made of wool are specially treated by fixing them with threads
before washing. The threads shall be removed after the clothes are dried.
Not washable laundry
Clothes those are easily transformable even by soaking in water.
• Even by soaking in water, neckties, brassieres, jackets, suits and coats can be easily
transformed like shrinking and discoloring on the garment surfaces because they are mostly
made of rayon, polynosic, cuff and their blend fabrics.
• The wrinkle-processed, embossed, or resin processed products are easy to transform even
by soaking in water.
• Easily discoloring products made of cotton and wool, wrinkled silk, leather products, leather
accessory, leather ornamented clothes and its accessory.
• Don’t wash those clothes without handling guideline or material indication tag.

CAUTION •
result. It may cause damages to the garments because rinsing is not enough.
• The bleaching agent may cause damages to garments since it is strong alkali.
• Do sufficient rinsing because the powder detergent is easily remained on the garments
causing bad odors.
• If too much detergent is used or cold water is used, it doesn’t dissolve completely and
remain on the garments, hose or spin basket, causing contamination on clothes.
• In case of reserved washing, detergents must be put in the detergent box. If the powder
detergents are spread on laundry directly, it may cause discoloration.

CARING FOR CLOTHES BEFORE WASHING
Take out personal belongings from pockets.
• Caution, Check the pockets! Hairpins and coins cause damages to
clothes and washing machine. They make noise and problems to
the machine. Must check the pocket.
If pants zippers are open while washing, the spin basket may be
damaged. The zipper should be closed and fixed with a string
before washing.
• Metal on the clothing may cause damage to the clothes and the tub.
• Turn clothing with buttons and embroidered clothes inside out before
washing them.
• Clothing with long strings may become entangled with other clothes,
and may cause damage to the clothing. Be sure to fix the strings
before washing.
Waterproof clothes (Ski Wear, Diaper Covers, Footboards) are not
allowed for washing.
• This may cause the laundry to be ejected or cause the washing machine to vibrate
abnormally, which may result in personal injury or damage the washing machine, the floor
or the clothing. (Diapers, waterproof clothing, raincoats, umbrella covers, skiwear, car cover
sheets, and sleeping bags, etc.).
• When the tub rotates, water may become trapped in the waterproof clothing or fabric and
can collect in a corner, causing abnormal vibrations. In addition, the laundry rises and may be
ejected and cause personal injury.
Shake the dirt or soils from clothes.
• Soil and sands may rub delicate garments to cause damages and the washing result may be
unsatisfactory.
Do pre-washing for white socks, sleeves, and collars before the main washing.
• For stains and dirt on collars, sleeves, hems, and pockets, apply some detergent to them
and apply it lightly with a brush before washing.
• Use powdered or liquid detergent. Do not use soap as the tub may become dirty from the
dirt on it.
Turn inside out for those nappy clothes before washing.
• If clothes have too much foreign matter, separate them for washing.
Other clothes may pick up those dirty matters (dirt, thread).
• Wash black colored clothes and cotton towels separately. If they are
washed together, towels may pick up dirty matters. Check before
washing.
Cashmilon and those garments having big volume and lightweight
(eg. Lasedecorated clothes, lingerie, nylon stocking, synthetic
fabrics etc.) may rise and cause damages to the clothes and
problems to the machine. Use the laundry net or wash them
separately.
• Must put those long stringed clothes, lase-worked clothes, bed cover
sheet, wool clothes into a laundry net before washing.

Adding detergent
1. Open the detergent drawer and then add the powder
detergent into the detergent compartment.
2. Add detergent evenly so that it doesn’t brim over the edge
of the drawer.
• Use a reasonable amount of detergent.
If you use more detergent than the standard quantity
or the water temperature is too low and the detergent
does not dissolve in the water completely causing it
to remain on the laundry and in the hose and tub, it may cause damage such as dirtying
and discoloring the laundry.
• If you use a powder detergent and it remains on the laundry, it may cause a bad odor.
Rinse the laundry sufficiently in fresh water.
If you spread a powder detergent over the laundry directly, it may result in discoloration.
Make sure to insert it into the detergent compartment.
CAUTION
If the water pressure is low, the detergent may remain in the detergent compartment.
Adding fabric softener
1. When the proper amount (one time dose) of fabric softener is stored in the softener inlet, it is
automatically added during the last rinse cycle.
2. Do not add detergent, bleach or starch into the softener inlet.
3. Using too much softener may produce unsatisfactory results.
4. Do not open the lid during the Spin cycle. If added too early, its effectiveness will decrease.
5. Do not leave the softener in the softener dispenser for a long time as it may congeal.
If the water pressure is low, the fabric softener may remain in the softener compartment. In
this case, put the fabric softener into the tub directly.
