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.

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.

• 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

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.

selected for the automatic wash.
• After the power is on, a program is selected and Start/Pause button is pressed. Then,
the washing board starts spinning without water. This action senses how much laundry is
in the washing basket, not a machine problem. After this sensing process, water supplies
automatically.
