SAFETY PRECAUTIONS
•
Do not reach inside the tub while the machine is working.
Wait until all motion stops.
•
Before washing, check all clothes for loose buttons and tears.
Check pockets for coins, pins or other small articles.
Close zips and fasteners.
Wash small articles inside a pillow slip.
•
Do not wash clothes soaked in petrol, thinners, vegetable oil or any other flammable
liquids. Nor should any of these liquids be added to the wash water as they constitute
a fire hazard.
•
Only use the machine for washing fabrics. Do not attempt to wash plastic leather or
fibreglass. Sort and separate clothes by fabric, colour and degree of dirt.
•
Avoid spraying water on to the control panel and back of the machine.
•
Do not use detergents which are not specifically designed for top loading automatic
washing machines.
•
Do not allow children to play with or crawl inside the machine.
Supervise them closely when the washer is in use.
•
Always unplug the machine from the wall socket when it requires cleaning or service.
Only permit qualified persons to repair or install parts in the washer.
•
Do not use water which is hotter than 65 degrees Celsius as this may deform plastic
parts of the machine.
INSTALLATION
UNPACKING
• Remove all packaging and dispose of it in a responsible manner.
• Open the wash-tub lid and remove all the accessories stored in the drum.
• Do not attempt to operate the machine while any of the packaging is still in place.
POSITIONING
• The machine should be installed in a well
ventilated place, away from direct sunlight.
• Hot and cold water taps should be located
within 1 metre of the inlet valves.
• Position the machine on a flat and stable
uncarpeted floor capable of supporting the fully
loaded washer.
Adjustable levelling feet are located at the front of
the machine and may be turned in or out to achieve
stability. An unstable machine will vibrate and
generate excessive noise.
DRAIN HOSE
• Connect the drain hose to the drain outlet at the
rear of the machine and secure it with the hose
clamp supplied.
• Hook the outlet end of the drain hose over the
lip of a sink or outlet pipe.

ELECTRICAL INSTALLATION
•
•
•
The washing machine is designed to operate on a 230 Volt, 50 Hz, 15 Amp, AC power
supply.
The machine should be connected to an earthed 3 pin wall socket.
If the power-cord should ever need replacing, use only a genuine cord available from
the nearest Defy Service Centre.
The appliance must be earthed and the manufacturer and seller do not
accept responsibility for any damage due to incorrect electrical connection.
LOADING THE MACHINE
PREPARATION
• Close all zippers, snaps and hooks to prevent them from snagging other articles.
• Remove pins, and other hard items to prevent them from scratching the machine.
• Empty all pockets and turn them inside out.
• Turn down cuffs and turn synthetic knits inside out.
• Tie strings and sashes so they will not tangle.
• Treat spots and stains before washing.
SORTING
• Mix large and small items in each load.
• Separate heavily soiled items from lightly soiled ones.
• Separate dark colours from light colours.
• Separate colourfast items from non-colourfast ones.
• Separate robust fabrics from delicate.
• Separate whites from colours.
LOADING
• Lift and fold the lid.
• Arrange the articles to be washed loosely round the perimeter of the tub.
• Load evenly as an off balance load may cause unnecessary vibrations.
• Use a large load programme when washing permanent press garments. These items
need more space to move than heavy items such as jeans and towels.
• Do not overload the machine as this will result in poor cleaning, increased creasing
and excessive lint formation.

TROUBLE SHOOTING
Most problems are easily solved if the cause is known
BEFORE CALLING A SERVICE TECHNICIAN PLEASE CHECK THE
FOLLOWING:
PROBLEM
The machine will not operate at all.
CHECK
Is there a power failure?
Has the power pad been pressed?
Has the start / hold pad been pressed?
Is there water in the tub?
There is a restricted or no water supply.
If the water flow has not stopped after 20
minutes the fault code IE will be displayed
and a buzzer will sound to indicate a
problem.
See if the tap is open?
Are the water pipes frozen?
Has the water supply been cut off?
Is the inlet filter blocked?
The machine will not drain.
If draining is not completed in a specified
time limit the fault code OE will be
displayed and a buzzer will sound to
indicate a problem.
Is the drain hose blocked or frozen?
Is the drain hose kinked or deformed?
Is the end of the drain hose immersed in
water?
Is there excessive dirt in the drain filter?
The machine will not spin.
If the load is unbalanced the spin cycle will
be interrupted and the machine will stop.
The unbalanced condition may be corrected
by re-filling the tub, rinsing and then
draining. If the unbalanced condition
remains, the fault code UE will be
displayed and a buzzer will sound
indicating a problem.
Is the wash load located all to one side?
Has the machine been installed on an
uneven floor?
Is the lid open? The fault code LE will be
displayed if this is the case.
NOTE:
Always refer to garment care labels for the manufacturer's
recommendations.
