features of your new VRT™
STEAM washer
1. VRT™ (Vibration Reduction Technology)
This Samsung washer performs smoothly at top spin speeds, minimizing noise and vibration.
2. Super capacity
Samsung’s extra-large capacity laundry machine can wash a full set of your bedding, a kingsize comforter, or up to 26 bath towels in a single load. Since you don’t have to do as many
loads, you save time, money, water and energy.
3. Deep steam
The deep steam feature boosts cleaning performance and loosens grime and dirt, thus
providing superior cleaning results.
4. Diamond drum™
Take gentle care of your fabrics. With inside holes 36% smaller than those of conventional
drums, the diamond drum prevents fabrics from sticking out and consequently being
damaged.
5. Stylish design
The stylish design of this washer blends well with your environment.
6. Display & Center jog dial
The jog dial enables you to select cycles in both directions with ease, and the display is easy
to use and understand.
7. DD Motor
The power to handle anything! Our direct-drive inverter motor delivers power right to the
washer tub from a variable speed, reversible motor. A beltless direct-drive motor generates a
higher spin speed of 1,200rpm for more effective, quiet operation. The washer also has fewer
moving parts, meaning fewer repairs.
8. Sanitize
When selecting this cycle, the water heats to an extra high temperature to remove 99.9% of
certain bacteria typically found on clothing, bedding, or towels. This certification is conducted
by NSF International, an independent third-party testing and certification organization.
Please check garment care label to avoid garment damage. Only sanitizing cycles have been
designed to meet the requirements of this protocol for sanitization efficacy.

2009-02-18 ¿ÀÈÄ 3:26:40
To reduce the risk of fire or explosion:
WARNING
•
Do not wash items that have been washed, soaked, or treated with gasoline, dry
cleaning solvents, or other flammable or explosive substances. They give off vapors that
could ignite or explode. Rinse by hand any material that has been exposed to cleaning
solvent or other flammable liquids or solids before putting in your washer. Be sure that
all traces of such liquids, solids, and fumes have been removed. Dangerous substances
include acetone, denatured alcohol, gasoline, kerosene, certain liquid household
cleaners and spot removers, turpentine, waxes, and wax removers.
•
Do not put gasoline, dry cleaning solvents, or other flammable or explosive substances
into the washer.
•
Under certain conditions, hydrogen gas may be produced in a hot water system–such
as your hot water heater-- that has not been used for two weeks or more. HYDROGEN
GAS IS EXPLOSIVE. If your hot water system has not been used for two weeks or
more, turn on all hot water faucets in your home, and let the water flow for several
minutes before using your washer. This will release any hydrogen gas build–up. Since
hydrogen gas is flammable, do not smoke or light an open flame during this time.
Unplug the power cord before servicing your washer.
Do not reach into the appliance when the tumbler is moving.
WARNING
Do not let children play on or in your washer. The washer door isn’t easily opened from the
inside, and a child could be seriously injured if trapped inside.
Do not tamper with the controls.
Do not repair, replace, or service any part of your washer yourself unless you fully
understand the recommended user–repair instructions and have the skills to carry them
out. Work done by an unauthorized person may void your warranty.
Store laundry detergents and other laundry supplies in a cool, dry place out of children’s
reach.
Do not wash or dry items that are soiled with vegetable or cooking oil. These items may
contain some oil after laundering. Due to the remaining oil, the fabric may smoke or catch
fire by itself.
WARNING
Do not use chlorine bleach, ammonia, or acids (such as vinegar or rust remover) in the
same wash. Hazardous fumes can form.
Do not wash fiberglass materials. Small particles can stick to fabrics washed in subsequent
loads and cause skin irritation.
WARNING
WARNING
Before disposing of your washer, remove the door so that children or small animals cannot
get trapped inside.
This appliance is not intended for use by persons (including children) with reduced physical,
sensory or mental capabilities, or lack of experience and knowledge, unless they have been
given supervision or instruction concerning use of the appliance by a person responsible for
their safety.
Children should be supervised to ensure that they do not play with the appliance.
Do not sit on top of your washer.
Inlet hoses are subject to damage and deterioration over time. Check the hoses periodically
for bulges, kinks, cuts, wear or leaks, and replace them every five years.
Ensure pockets are free from small irregularly shaped hard objects, foreign materials such
as coins, knives, pins, etc. These objects could damage your washer.
Do not wash clothing with large buckles, buttons, or other heavy metal.

BASIC LOCATION REQUIREMENTS
Electrical
•
120 Volt 60 Hz 15 AMP fuse or circuit breaker
•
Individual branch circuit serving only your washer is recommended.
•
Your washer is equipped with a power cord.
WARNING
Never use an extension cord.
Grounding
ELECTRICAL GROUNDING IS REQUIRED ON THIS APPLIANCE.
This appliance must be grounded. In the event of malfunction or breakdown, grounding will
reduce the risk of electric shock by providing a path of least resistance for electric current.
This appliance is equipped with a power cord having a three-prong grounding plug for use in a
properly installed and grounded outlet.
WARNING
Improper connection of the equipment-grounding conductor can result in a risk of electrical
shock. Check with a qualified electrician or serviceman if you are in doubt as to whether the
appliance is properly grounded. Do not modify the plug provided with the appliance – if it
does not fit the outlet, have a proper outlet installed by a qualified electrician.
IMPORTANT SAFETY PRECAUTIONS
•
To prevent unnecessary risk of fire, electrical shock or personal injury, all wiring and
grounding must be done in accordance with the National Electrical Code ANSI/FNPA, No.
70 Latest Revision and local codes and ordinances. It is the personal responsibility of the
appliance owner to provide adequate electrical service for this appliance.
WARNING
Never connect ground wire to plastic plumbing lines, gas lines, or hot water pipes.
Water
To correctly fill your washer in the proper amount of time, water pressure of 20-116psi(137800kPa) is required.
Water pressure less than 20 psi(137kPa) may cause water valve failure, or may not allow the
water valve to shut off completely. Or, it may extend the fill time beyond what your washer
controls allow, resulting in your washer turning off. A time limit is built into the controls in the
event of an internal hose becoming loose and flooding your home.
The water faucets must be within 4 ft.(122cm) of the back of your washer for the inlet hoses
provided with your washer.
Accessory inlet hoses are available in various lengths up to 10 ft.(305cm) for faucets that
are further away from the back of your washer.
To avoid the possibility of water damage:
•
Have water faucets easily accessible.
•
Turn off faucets when the washer is not in use.
•
Periodically check that there is no leakage from the water inlet hose fittings.
Check all connections at the water valve and faucet for leaks.
WARNING
8_ Installing your washer

2009-02-18 ¿ÀÈÄ 3:26:43
Drain facility
The recommended height of the standpipe is 18 in (46 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.
Flooring
Never install your washer on a platform or weakly supported structure.
CAUTION
Location consideration
Do not install your washer in areas where water may freeze, since your washer will always
maintain some water in its water valve, pump, and hose areas. This can cause damage the belts,
the pump, hoses and other components.
01 Installing your washer
For best performance, your washer must be installed on a solidly constructed floor. Wood floor
may need to be reinforced to minimize vibration and/or unbalanced load situations. Carpeting
and soft tile surfaces are contributing factors in vibration and may cause your washer to move
slightly during the spin cycle.
Alcove or closet installation
MINIMUM CLEARANCES FOR CLOSET AND ALCOVE INSTALLATIONS:
Sides – 1 In.(2.5 cm)
Top – 17 In.(43.2 cm)
Rear – 4 In.(10.2 cm)
Closet Front – 2 In.(5.1 cm)
If the washer and dryer are installed together, the closet front must have at least 72 in²(465 cm²)
of an unobstructed air opening. Your washer alone does not require a specific air opening.

FOR ACTIVFRESH™ WASHING
An increased consumer demand for energy-saving products prompted Samsung to develop a system to
use silver, widely known for its antimicrobial properties, as a sanitizing agent in your washer.
Pure silver atoms have an electron stripped away by electrolysis during the wash and rinse cycles, which
releases up to 16 million trillion silver ions that then penetrate deep into the fabric to sanitize clothing
(according to U.S. EPA Test Guideline DIS/TSS-13). It does not need hot water or bleach.
Here’s how it works: A grapefruit-sized device alongside the tub uses two pure silver plates the size of large
chewing gum sticks as electrodes in the water inlet system. The resulting positively charged silver atoms
- Silver ions (Ag+) -- are sprayed into the tub during the wash and final rinse cycle.
During tests, this process removed more than 99.9% of bacteria.
Extra delicate blouses, shirts, or even lingerie that can’t be washed in hot water can now be sanitized
effectively without the adverse effects of hot water. The silver plates can easily be replaced by a Service
Technician if needed.
To use :
1. Load the washer.
2. Press the Power button.
3. Select a Cycle by turning the Cycle Selection dial.
4. Press the ActivFresh™ button.
5. Add detergent in the dispenser tray for main washing, and add fabric softener up to the marked line.
6. Press the Start/Pause button.
: The washer automatically selects optimal washing conditions by sensing the laundry’s weight.
FOR HOME USE ONLY– COMMERCIAL USERS SHOULD NOTIFY THEIR LOCAL WASTE
TREATMENT AUTHORITIES BEFORE USE
The total number of silver cycles run by the washer is displayed when pushing the Signal button and the
ActivFresh™ button simultaneously while the power is on.
LU1 : less than 1000 cycles
LU0 : 1000 cycles
The total number of silver cycles run by the washer is displayed when pushing the Signal and
ActivFresh™ buttons simultaneously while the power is on.
You cannot choose the ActivFresh™ , spin only option with the Wool cycle.
USING STEAM WASH
The Steam Wash function injects steam directly into the laundry in the wash tub to increase the wash
temperature and enhance the Soak effect, thus improving the wash performance.
1. Load the washer.
2. Press the Power button.
3. Turn the Cycle Selector and select a Steam Cycle. (The Deep Steam course automatically selects
Steam.)
4. Press the Steam button.
5. Add detergent into the dispenser tray for a wash, and add fabric softener up to the marked line.
6. Press the Start/Pause button.
: The washer automatically selects the optimal wash conditions by sensing the weight of the laundry.
If steam wash is selected, steam is injected at the most effective time for the detected amount of
laundry in order to maximize the effect of the steam.

DETERGENT USE
Your washer is designed to use high efficiency (HE) detergents.
•
CAUTION
Regular detergent is not recommended. Please use HE detergents
only.
Reducing the amount of detergent may reduce the cleaning quality. It is important to pre–treat stains,
sort carefully by color and soil level, and avoid overloading.
*
Brand names are trademarks of their respective manufacturers.
03 Washing a load of laundry
For best cleaning results, use a high efficiency detergents such as Tide
HE, Wisk HE, Cheer HE or Gain HE*. High efficiency detergents contain
suds suppressors that reduce or eliminate suds. When fewer suds are
produced, the load tumbles more efficiently and cleaning is maximized.
FEATURES
Detergent
compartment
Automatic dispenser
Your washer has separate compartments for dispensing
detergent and color-safe bleach, chlorine bleach, and fabric
softener. All laundry additives are added to their respective
compartments before starting your washer.
Pre wash

panel.
2. Add the recommended quantity of additive to the
appropriate compartments with laundry additives, and be
careful not to overfill or spill.
3. Slide the dispenser drawer carefully and completely back
into the compartment.
Detergent compartment
1. Pour the recommended amount of laundry detergent directly into the detergent compartment
before starting your washer.
2. If color-safe bleach is to be used, it should be added with detergent to the detergent
compartment.
•
When adding color-safe bleach with detergent, it is best if both laundry products are in
the same form – granular or liquid.
If using liquid detergent, lower the detergent selector and add the detergent to the
detergent compartment.

Pre wash compartment
When using the Pre Wash option, detergent should be added to both the Pre Wash
compartment and the detergent compartment. The detergent will automatically be dispensed
during Pre Wash.
•
If high efficiency (HE) detergent is used, add 1/3 of the recommended amount to the Pre
Wash compartment and 2/3 of the recommended amount to the detergent compartment.
Bleach compartment
(Liquid chlorine bleach only)
1. Add chlorine bleach to the bleach compartment.
DO NOT exceed the MAX FILL line.
2. Avoid splashing or over–filling the compartment.
Fabric Softener

3. Your washer automatically dispenses bleach into the tub at
the appropriate time.
4. The dispenser automatically dilutes liquid chlorine bleach
before it reaches the wash load.
•
Never pour undiluted liquid chlorine bleach directly onto
the load or into the tub. It is a powerful chemical and
can cause fabric damage, such as weakening of the
fibers or color loss, if not used properly.
•
If you prefer to use color–safe, non–chlorine bleach,
add it to the appropriate detergent compartment.
DO NOT pour color–safe bleach into the Bleach
compartment.
Fabric softener compartment
1. Pour the recommended amount of liquid fabric softener into the softener compartment.
For smaller loads, use less than one capful.
2. Fabric softener should be diluted with water until it reaches MAX FILL in the compartment.
3. The dispenser automatically releases liquid fabric softener at the proper time during the rinse
cycle.
•
Use the softener compartment ONLY for liquid fabric softeners.
•
DO NOT use a Downy Ball* in the Fabric softener compartment of this washer. It will not
add fabric softener at the appropriate time.
Use the detergent compartment.

** The dot symbols represent appropriate wash water temperatures for various items. The temperature
range for Hot is 105-125°F(41-52°C), for Warm 85-105°F(29-41°C) and for Cold 60-85°F(16-29°C). (Wash
water temperature must be a minimum of 60°F(16°C) for detergent activation and effective cleaning.) The
clothes washer may not ensure these temperatures because the actual water temperatures entering your
washer are dependent on water heater settings and regional water supply temperatures. For example,
cold water entering the home in the northern states during winter may be 40°F(4°C) which is too cold for
effective cleaning. The water temperature in this situation will need to be adjusted by selecting a warm
setting, adding some hot water to the MAX FILL line or using your washer’s heating option, if available.
