Laundry guidelines
Checkpoints
•
•
CAUTION
•
•
•
Do not keep heavy clothes or objects in
the tub.
Do not put candles or a heat source in or
on the washing machine.
Do not wash these clothes:
• Neckties, brassieres, jackets, suits,
and coats can be easily deformed
by shrinking or discolouring on the
surface. These clothes are mostly
made of rayon, polynosic, cuff, and/
or blended fabric.
• Wrinkle-processed, embossed,
or resin processed clothes easily
deform merely by soaking in water.
• Clothes that are easily discoloured
made from cotton, wool, wrinkled
silk, leather wear and accessories,
and leather ornamented clothes and
accessories.
Waterproof clothes (skiwear, diaper
covers, footboards, etc) are likely to
be ejected or cause abnormal noise
or vibration, resulting in physical
injury or property damage.
STEP 1 Sort
Sort the laundry according to these
criteria:
•
•
•
•
Before you start
•
Check for stains or dirt. Apply a little
detergent to a white towel. Rub the
white towel and the dirty clothes
together to transfer the dirt or colour to
the white towel.
Before washing, pre-treat the sleeves,
collars, dress hems, and pockets by
brushing with detergent.
Wrinkle-processed clothes made of wool
must be specially treated by tightening
them with threads before washing.
Remove the threads after washing and
drying is complete.
•
Care Label: Sort the laundry into cottons,
mixed fibres, synthetics, silks, wools, and
rayon.
Colour: Separate whites from colours.
Size: Mixing different-sized items
together in the tub improves the
washing performance.
Sensitivity: Follow the cloth-specific
instructions on the care label of delicate
items such as pure, new woollen items,
curtains, and silk items.
NOTE
Make sure to check the care label on the
clothing, and sort them accordingly before
starting the wash.

6:11:17
Before you start
STEP 2 Empty pockets
Empty all the pockets of your laundry
items, and remove dirt and/or soils from
them.
•
•
•
Before you start
•
•
Metal objects such as coins, pins, and
buckles on clothing may damage other
laundry items as well as the tub.
Turn clothing with buttons and
embroideries inside out.
If pants or jacket zippers are open while
washing, the tub may be damaged.
Zippers should be closed and fixed with
a string.
Clothing with long strings may become
entangled with other clothes. Make sure
to tie the strings before washing.
STEP 3 Use a laundry net
•
•
•
Brassieres (water washable) must be
placed in a laundry net. Metal parts of
the brassieres may break through and
tear other laundry items.
Cashmilon, large volume garments,
and lightweight clothes (lace-decorated
clothes, lingerie, nylon stocking, and
synthetic fabrics) may float on water
during washing and cause problems
to the machine. Use the laundry net or
wash them separately.
Do not wash the laundry net by itself
without other laundry. This may cause
abnormal vibrations that could move the
washing machine and result in injury.
STEP 4 Prewash (if necessary)
•
•
•
To remove stains and dirt on collars,
sleeves, hems, and pockets, apply
detergent lightly and brush off.
Use powder or liquid detergents. Do not
use soap, as this may remain on the tub
after washing.
Prewash white socks, sleeves, and
collars with a little detergent and a
brush.
STEP 5 Determine the load capacity
Do not overload the washing machine.
Overloading may cause the washing
machine to not wash properly.
NOTE
When washing bedding or bedding covers,
the wash time may be lengthened or the
spin efficiency may be reduced. For bedding
or bedding covers, the recommended load
capacity is 3.5 kg or less.
CAUTION
If the laundry is unbalanced and the “Ub”
information code is displayed, redistribute
the load. Unbalanced laundry may reduce
the spinning performance.

STEP 6 Apply a proper detergent
type
The type of detergent depends 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.
CAUTION
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
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 local
area. If you are not sure about the water
hardness, contact a local water authority.
Do not use detergent that tends to be
hardened or solidified. This detergent
may remain after the rinse process,
blocking the drain outlet.
Before you start
•
Use an appropriate amount of detergent.
Excess amounts of detergent do not
produce much improvement in washing
results but cause damage to the laundry
due to deteriorated rinsing performance.
Bleach is strong alkali in nature, causing
damage to or discolouration of the
laundry.
Use a longer or added rinse cycle
when using powder detergent that is
very likely to remain on the laundry
and cause bad odours after washing is
complete.
If an excessive amount of detergent
is used especially in cold water, the
detergent doesn’t dissolve well, ending
up with contaminated laundry, hoses,
and/or tub.
In case of timed washing, do not apply
detergent directly to laundry or the tub.
The laundry may be discoloured. Use the
detergent drawer.
When washing wool using the Wool
cycle, use only a neutral detergent to
avoid discolouring the laundry.
