When you press a button you will get a
short ‘BEEP’ to acknowledge the entry.
If the option is not available at the time,
the machine will not allow you to select
it, and you will here the long ‘BEEP’ to
remind you the option is not available.
Out of Balance Interruption
The washing machine can stop during
the spin stage of a wash because of an
out of balance condition. The display will
show “
” and you will hear a short
beep every minute.
After the machine has started, the entire
wash option button will be disabled and
machine will show “
” on the display
with three short beeps to indicate the
button is disabled. The start button is still
active but you need to press and hold
the button for 1.2 seconds to pause
machine.
Out of balance during spin is caused by
an uneven distribution of clothes in the
wash bowl. To rectify the out of balance
condition, open the lid and redistribute
the clothes evenly in the space between
the agitator and wall of the wash bowl.
Closing the lid will start the machine
and continue the spin stage of the
wash.
This is to confirm that you really want to
pause the machine. When in pause
mode, all options will be able to be
changed again.
If you have frequent out of balance
interruptions, it may be due to your
washing machine not standing firm and
level on the floor. This can be corrected
by adjusting the washing machine legs
as described in the Installation
Instructions supplied with your machine.
All functions of the washing machine
will stop when the lid is open.
Power failure recovery
Enabling/Disabling
End-of-Wash Beeping Mode
When there is power failure while
machine is washing or rinsing or
spinning. The machine tries to save the
settings at which stage the machine is
doing and then when the power returns
back the machine shows “
” on the
digital display.
This mode permits you to either enable
or disable the beeping (3 beeps every 4
minutes) at the end of the wash. As an
example, you might wish to disable this
beeping when you start a wash when
going to bed, so that when the wash
finished approximately 1 hour later, it will
not disturb you through the night.
If the Program dial or any other setting
is not changed within 5 seconds then
the machine starts washing from the
stage where it is left off.
NOTE: All error beeping is not
disabled by this feature, such as a
critical fault, or lid open during
fill/agitate/spin, or out of balance
during spinning.

USE
Follow the instructions in this section for
best washing results.
Check your clothes to avoid
damage
Sort Your Washing Into
Separate Wash Loads
Empty all pockets. Close all hooks and
zippers to avoid snagging clothes.
Wash bras, pantyhose and other
delicates in a mesh laundry bag, which
you can purchase from your
supermarket.
Pre-treatment sprays and
stain removers
Each load of washing should contain
clothing which needs the same washing
conditions. For example, you should not
wash delicate clothes with very dirty
work clothes.
Pre-treatment sprays and stain
remover can damage plastic
components on your washing
machine.
Colour fast and non-colourfast fabrics
should be separated. Knowing the type
of fabrics you have and how dirty they
are will help when you make selections
from the wash program options.
If you use pre-treatment sprays or stain
removers, apply them to the clothing
well away from your washing machine.
Some fabrics are lint collectors and can
pick up lint, dirt and colour from other
fabrics which are lint producers. Some
examples are listed below:
Lint collectors
Corduroy
Synthetics
Permanent press
fabrics
Load the washing machine
Lint producers
Towels
Nappies
Chenille/
Candlewick
Make sure that you wash lint
collectors separately from lint
producers.
When loading the clothes into your
washing machine, there are four things
to remember:
10
Clothes must be loaded evenly
around the agitator. For best results
load small items first, followed by
large items.
Add the detergent
Model: EWT904 / EWT113
When using the washing machine for
the first time, check that the dispenser
is set for the type of detergent you will
use. To do this, proceed as follows:
Clothes must not be wrapped a
round the agitator.
The washing machine must not be
overloaded. Clothes must be able to
move around during washing.
1. Pull the dispenser drawer forward.
2. Lift the front of the drawer up and
forward to remove it from the
runners.
The load should contain only three or
four large items, for example, sheets.
The rest of the load should be small
items. A mixed load of large and
small items will wash cleaner than a
load of all large items.
3. Check the position of the flap at the
rear of the detergent compartment
in the dispenser drawer. (Factory
setting is flap up for powder.)
Detergent and fabric softener
use
Clip flap up

machine.
5. Refit the dispenser back into its
runners.
Remember: If you change the
type of detergent you use, the
position of the flap will need
changing.
Don’t use too much detergent. This
will give you too many suds causing
low spin speeds, poor rinsing and
overloading the motor during spin
stages of the wash program.
6. You are now ready to add
detergent. Measure the amount you
will use and pour it into the
detergent compartment of the
dispenser drawer.

marked inside the cup. The softener
cup holds 75ml.
When using liquid detergent, some
may leak out of the dispenser into
the wash load earlier than expected
through small openings in the back
of the dispenser. These openings are
to help the flushing out of detergent.
3. Pour the mixed softener into the cup
in the top of the agitator.
7. If you want to use fabric softener,
see “Add fabric softener”.
8. Close the drawer by pushing it

but the amount of water in each spray
is increased.
15
Deep rinse ensures the fabric softener
is correctly dispensed and thoroughly
removed from your clothes during
rinsing.
How does Eco Rinse work ?
When Eco rinse is used, rinse water is
sprayed into the washbowl in pulses.
After each pulse the washbowl will spin
to remove detergent laden water from
the clothes.
If your water flow rate is too low
(low water pressure). You should
avoid ‘Eco’ and ‘Fast’ rinse,
because the rinse performance
will drop.
You can use ‘Delay End’ option to
make machine start to run when water
flow rate is too high (e.g. If your coutry
have high water pressing on eairly
morning you can run the machine on
that time).
The machine will go through a series of
maximum six pulse spray and short
spin cycles in this manner, depending
on program selection, followed by a
final long spin that removes the water
from the clothes to complete the full
wash program.
Delay End Option
Before you start the
program, this option
makes it possible to define
the end of the washing
program by 2, 4, 6 and 8
hours. This option MUST
be selected after choosing
the wash program with
the dial, and before
pressing the “Start/Hold
To Pause” button.
Compare this with Deep rinse where
much more water is used.
Deep rinse, water enters the
machine filling up to the wash water
level selected. The washer agitates
and finally empties the rinse water
through the drain hose.
Extra rinse, this is special option for
those people who suffer from allergies,
this extra rinse will provide two deep
rinses to ensure all detergent residue
has been removed.
If after having set the Delay-End option
(and pressed “Start/Hold To Pause”
button) and you wish the cancel or
modify it, follow the below steps:
1. set the washing machine to PAUSE
by press and hold the “Start/Hold

WASHING HINTS
Removing Stains
Sorting The Laundry
Follow the wash code symbols on
each garment label and the
manufacturer’s washing instructions.
Stubborn stains may not be removed by
just water and detergent. It is therefore
advisable to treat them prior to washing.
Sort the laundry as follows: whites,
coloureds, synthetics, delicates,
woollens.
Blood: treat fresh stains with cold water.
For dried stains, soak overnight in water
with a special detergent then rub in the
soap and water.
Before Loading The Laundry
Oil based paint: moisten with benzine
stain remover, lay the garment on a soft
cloth and dab the stain; treat several times.
Never wash whites and coloureds
together. Whites may lose their
“whiteness” in the wash.
Dried grease stains: moisten with
turpentine, lay the garment on a soft
surface and dab the stain with the
fingertips and a cotton cloth.
New coloured items may run in the
first wash; they should therefore be
washed separately the first time.
Rust: oxalic acid dissolved in hot water
or a rust removing product used cold.
Be careful with rust stains which are not
recent since the cellulose structure will
already have been damaged and the
fabric tends to hole.
Make sure that no metal objects
are left in the laundry (e.g. hair
clips, safety pins, pins).
Mould stains: treat with bleach, rinse
well (whites and fast coloureds only).
Button up pillowcases, close zip
fasteners, hooks and poppers.
Grass: soap lightly and treat with bleach
(whites and fast coloureds only).
Tie any belts or long tapes.
Remove persistent stains before
washing.
Ball point pen and glue: moisten with
acetone (*), lay the garment on a soft
cloth and dab the stain.
Rub particularly soiled areas with a
special detergent or detergent paste.
Lipstick: moisten with acetone (*) as
above, then treat stains with methylated
spirits. Remove any residual marks from
white fabrics with bleach.
Treat curtains with special care.
Remove hooks or tie them up in a
bag or net.
Red wine: soak in water and detergent,
rinse and treat with acetic or citric acid,
then rinse. Treat any residual marks with
bleach.
19
Quantity Of Detergent To Be
Used
Ink: depending on the type of ink,
moisten the fabric first with acetone (*),
then with acetic acid; treat any residual
marks on white fabrics with bleach and
then rinse thoroughly.
The type and quantity of detergent will
depend on the type of fabric, load size,
degree of soiling and hardness of the
water used.
Tar stains: first treat with stain remover,
methylated spirits or benzine, then rub
with detergent paste.
Water hardness is classified in so-called
“degrees” of hardness.
(*) do not use acetone on artificial silk.
Information on hardness of the water in
your area can be obtained from the
relevant water supply company, or from
your local authority.
Detergents and Additives
Follow the product manufacturers’
instructions on quantities to use.
Use less detergent if:
you are washing a small load,
the laundry is lightly soiled,
Good washing results also depend on
the choice of detergent and use of the
correct quantities to avoid waste and
protect the environment.
large amounts of foam form during
washing
Although biodegradable, detergents
contain substances which, in large
quantities, can upset the delicate
balance of nature.
The choice of detergent will depend on
the type of fabric (delicates, woollens,
cottons, etc.), the colour, washing
temperature and degree of soiling.

CARE AND CLEANING
What To Do After You Have
Finished Your Washing.
Before replacing the dispenser back
in its recess, clean the inside of the
drawer with an old toothbrush.
Rotate Selector knob to “O” position.
Switch off the electricity at the power
point.
Turn off the water taps.
Leave lid open for a while. This allows
time for moisture inside the washing
machine to evaporate and for any
odours to disperse.
Put the dispenser back into its
runners and close the drawer.
You must DISCONNECT the appliance
from the electricity supply, before you
can carry out any cleaning or
maintenance work.
Cleaning The Lint Filter
Lint is a collection of threads and fluff
which comes off your clothes during
washing.
Cleaning The Dispenser
Your washing machine collects this lint
in the lint filter. It is important to clean
out this lint filter, preferably after each
wash.
The dispenser needs to be cleaned
regularly, preferably after each wash.
Inspect the dispenser after each wash to
see if there is any residue of detergent.
How to clean the lint filter :
To do this proceed as follows:
Remove the filter column from the
centre of the agitator.
Pull the dispenser drawer forward
until it stops.
Lift the front of the drawer up and
forward to remove it from the runners.
Clean the dispenser drawer with hot
water and a brush, eg. an old
toothbrush.
Dry the drawer.
22
Cleaning Stains In The
Washbowl
Unclip the filter bag from the column.
Stains and residue in the washbowl can
be caused by:
Metal objects such as bobby pins,
dress making pins and nails.
Salt.
Body oils and grease from very dirty
or sweaty clothes being deposited
around the top of the washbowl.
Turn the bag inside out and remove
the lint.
Wash the filter bag in hot water.
Clean the filter bag with an old brush,
making sure water can flow through
the bag mesh.
Excessive foam during wash if
incorrect or too much detergent is
used.
Reassemble the filter to the column
and place it back in the centre of the
agitator.
Check all pockets before loading
clothes into your washing
machine.
Cleaning Your Washing
Machine
Don’t leave wet clothing
(especially swimwear) in the bowl
for too long before you wash it.
To clean the inside and outside of your
washing machine you should:
Wipe the surface with a mild
dishwashing detergent and warm
water.
How to clean the washbowl:
Wipe with a cleaning product which
is suitable for stainless steel.
Wipe dry with a soft cloth.
Oily deposits can be removed by
wiping surfaces with a mild
dishwashing detergent and warm
water.
Never use solvents, aerosol cleaners,
spray pack cleaners, glass cleaners,
metal polishes, caustic materials,
scourers or general household
cleaners on or near the top panel and
lid, control panel or other parts of
your washing machine.
Never use bleach cleaners or steel
wool to clean the stainless steel
washbowl.

HELPFUL HINTS IN DEALING WITH WASHING PROBLEMS
Residues On Washed Items
If you use pre-treatment sprays or stain
removers, apply them to the clothes
items in a well ventilated area away
from your washing machine.
If you are experiencing residue on some
clothes, the following tips will help:
Pre-mix the detergent thoroughly in
warm water to improve the dissolving.
Use light strokes and don’t rub the
stain remover into the fabric.
Reduce detergent dosage to between
a 1/2 and 2/3 of the manufacturer’s
standard recommendation to avoid
over concentration (the lower water
usage requires lower detergent usage).
If you use a chlorine bleach, follow the
instructions on the bottle and dilute it
before putting it on clothing.
Test coloured fabrics on an inside
seam for colour fastness before using
any stain removers or bleaches.
Some residue may be re-deposited
lint, so be careful to not have lint
producing items in a load which has
darker clothes.
Test synthetic fabric on an inside
seam before using any chemicals or
bleaches.
Select Deep rinse or Extra rinse and
NOT Eco or Fast rinse to help flush
more particles away.
NOTE: Chemicals referred to for stain
removal are available from your local
supermarket, hardware store or the
chemist.
Some detergents have ingredients
which do not fully dissolve and as a
consequence, may leave white
residue or particles evident on the
surface of darker clothes in the
finished wash load.
Pre-treatment sprays and stain
removers can damage plastic
components on your washing
machine.
Do no use dry cleaning fluids or
solvents near your washing machine.
These fluids will damage your
washing machine and may cause an
explosion.
Similarly, some soils may not
dissolve fully, resulting in residue
evident on lighter coloured clothes.
Stained Clothes
Treat all stains as soon as possible. The
longer you leave a stain the harder it will
be to remove. Try soakers and stain
removers first.
