You and your machine are going to make a great team together. But first it will pay if you really get to know each other. This manual will tell you all you need to know about your machine, what it will do and how to do it. Please read all the instructions carefully before operating the machine. Some of its features are: • Advanced electronics: Sensors determine the optimum water level and wash duration. • Direct drive motor: Ensures an exceptionally smooth and quiet operation. • Nano silver sterilization technology: Applying the attributes of silver (anti-bacteria) and carbon (deodorization) nano particles, the wash compartment is selectively coated, ensuring a bacteria free wash. • Air bubble washing: Millions of generated air bubbles completely dissolve detergents thereby improving both the wash and rinsing performance. • Safety lock: Prevents accidental changing of pre-set programmes. • Inclined drum: Ensures a better wash action and diminishes vibrations. • Infrared drying technology: Kombomaid -washer dryer only Installation UNPACKING • • • • Carefully remove all packaging from the machine and accessories. Please ensure that packaging material is disposed of in a responsible manner. Plastic bags should be cut up to prevent children playing with them and accidentally suffocating. If the appliance is damaged in any way, do not use it. Report the damage to your dealer, who will take the necessary corrective action. TRANSPORT FITTINGS • • The wash drum is secured by four bolts to prevent damage during transport . If these bolts and associated rubber sleeves are not removed before use, it will result in excessive vibration, noise and possible malfunction. • To remove the transport fittings proceed as follows: • Unscrew the 4 bolts at the back of the machine, with the spanner supplied. • Remove the bolts and rubber grommets. • Keep the transport fittings and spanner for future use. • To prevent damage, the machine should be transported with the transport fittings securely in place. Page 2 • Insert the four plastic plugs, supplied with the machine, into the holes vacated by the transport fittings. POSITIONING THE MACHINE • • • • • The machine must stand firmly on the floor. Any instability will negatively effect its performance. To level the machine, loosen the plastic lock nuts on the adjustable feet using the spanner supplied. Rotate the feet until the machine stands firm and level. Tighten the lock nuts firmly. Never remove the lock nuts and feet from the machine. Do not place the washing machine in an area where the temperature could drop to 0°C. Residual water in the pipes could freeze and damage the machine. Ventilation openings should not be obstructed. Leave a space of 20mm to the left and right of the machine and 100mm at the back. Never place the machine on a carpet. This could prevent air circulation and cause electrical components in the machine to overheat. Do not place or store anything on top of the machine. CONNECTING TO THE COLD WATER SUPPLY • • The water supply should deliver 8 to 80 litres per minute. Sealing washers are supplied and these should be fitted at either end of the inlet hose. • Secure the angled end of the inlet hose to the water inlet at the rear of the machine and the straight end to a 3/4 inch BSP cold water tap. • Tighten both connections. Open the tap and check for leaks. • We recommend that the tap be closed when the machine is not in use. CONNECTING TO THE DRAIN HOSE Draining into a dedicated outlet pipe • The outlet pipe must have an inside diameter of at least 40 mm. • The end of the pipe must be positioned between 600 mm. and 1000 mm. above floor level. • Secure the hooked end of the drain hose into the outlet pipe. Draining into a sink or bath • The drain hose may be hooked over the edge of a sink or bath in such a way that the end can not be immersed in the collected waste water. • The outlet end of the hose must be between 600 mm. and 1000 mm. above floor level. • Please note: The outlet hose must be kept free of kinks or restrictions as these will hinder the operation of the machine. Page 3 Hose retainer Tie strap Max 1000mm Min 600mm Hose retainer Max 1000 mm Min 600m Tie strap ELECTRICAL CONNECTION • The appliance must be earthed and the manufacturer and seller do not accept responsibility for any damage due to incorrect electrical connection. • The three pin plug, attached to the power cord, must be inserted into a 15 Amp earthed wall socket. • Do not connect the machine through a double adaptor. It requires a dedicated power point • If the power cord should ever need replacing, use only a genuine cord ( Type ‘X’) available from the nearest Defy Service Centre.

Page 6 Helpful hints • • IM P O R TA NT RE G • • • • Sort washing by material type. Adhere to garment label washing instructions. Fasten zips to prevent them snagging other articles. Mend loose seams and tears before washing. Secure all loose buttons. Empty all pockets of coins and loose objects. Secure or remove brassiere wires. Wash small articles such as socks, handkerchiefs, synthetic knits and delicate underwear in a wash bag or pillow slip. This will prevent tangling and avoid piling. Treat any stains before washing. Test fabrics for colourfastness before washing. Wash new denim separately as colours may run. Wash new bulky articles such as quilts and sleeping bags individually. For best results use the WOOL programme. Do not wash articles which have been soaked in paint, petrol, thinners, or other flammable liquids. Do not wash rubberised articles such as rain coats and training shoes.

Page 12 Stain removal guide • • • • • • • • • • Stained, heavily soiled or greasy laundry may need to be pre-washed or soaked. Pre-washing helps loosen soil before washing. Soaking helps remove protein type stains like blood, milk or grass. Hot water can set stains and should not be used . Pre-clean the stain if possible by placing the garment face down on a paper towel or clean cloth. Apply a recommended stain remover to the back of the stain to force the stain away from the garment and not through it. Ascertain the type and age of the stain before attempting to clean it. Always check the garment care label to confirm that the chosen cleaning method is compatible. Washing and drying can set some stains. Only use bleach if it is recommended for the fabric type. Most stains are easier to remove if they are fresh. STAIN REMOVAL METHOD Blood. Rinse immediately and then soak in cold water with an enzyme based detergent before washing in cold water. Cocoa , Chocolate. Rinse immediately and then soak in cold water with an enzyme based detergent before washing in cold water. Chewing gum.
