Moving and Installing
Removing the Anchor Bolts
INSTALLATION GUIDE
Four anchor bolts keep the interior of the washing machine in place while it’s being moved.
They need to be removed before installation. Use a spanner (not supplied) and following the
instructions below.
Don’t run the washing machine without removing the bolts, as this can cause excessive
vibration.
To remove the anchor bolts:
1. Use a spanner to loosen the four transit
bolts which are located at the rear.
2. Pull the bolts out horizontally.
3. Remove the 4 plastic bolt guides if not
removed with the bolt.
Please keep the transit bolts and
guides in a safe place as you will
need these if you wish to move the
appliance at a later date.
Moving the Washing Machine from One Location to Another
Make sure to fix the anchor bolts prior to moving the washing machine.
Before you move the washing machine
• Shut the tap and run the washing machine to drain the water. Drain any remaining water
from the pump hose.
• Depressurise the water supply hose and remove it.
• Disconnect the mains cable.
• Attach the anchor bolts.

Levelling the Washing Machine
There are 4 leveling feet on the underside. There can be adjusted to make sure the washing
machine is level.
1. On each stand, loosen the lock nut by turning it clockwise with
a spanner.
2. Adjust all four feet in this way.
3. Use a spirit level to ensure the washing machine is standing
correctly.
4. Tighten each lock nut by turning them anti-clockwise (towards
the washing machine body), again using a spanner.
Ensure all four lock nuts are tightened securely. Check the feet are still bolted to the washing
machine - if they’re unbolted, the washing machine will move around.
Water Supply Hose
Points to remember
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
Follow the instructions in this section to avoid water leaks.
Don’t connect the hose to a combination tap.
Don’t twist, squash, modify or cut the hose.
Optimum water pressure in the main pipe is 0.05 MPa - 1.0 MPa.
If the water pressure is set higher than this, you will need to install a depressurising valve.
Water-flow from the tap should be more than 5 litres per minute.
If you’re unsure, ask a qualified technician to connect the hose.
Connecting the Water Supply Hose
1. Attach the hose to a tap, and tighten the
plastic joint by hand.
2. Open the tap slowly and check there are no
leaks around the joint.

Leak-proof System - Overflow Detection
This system is designed to prevent water leaks from the washing machine. If water collects
in the washing machine above a certain level, this function prevents the washing machine
overflowing by stopping the water supply and activating the drain pump.
Water Drain Hose
INSTALLATION GUIDE
Points to remember:
• Don’t twist, pull out or bend the drain hose.
• Your washing machine should be no more than 100cm from the drain outlet.
Draining to a sink or wash-basin
• Secure the drain hose in position, so it can’t drop out of the basin.
• Don’t block the basin’s drain outlet, and make sure the drainage through it is sufficient.
• Don’t let the tip of the drain hose dip into the drained water, as this can cause the water
to flow back into the washing machine.

Preparation
Read the following to understand how best to prepare your laundry for washing.
Organising Laundry
• Read the washing label on each garment to help you sort your washing into different
loads.
• Sort the laundry by colour, type of fabric and by how soiled it is.
This will help you choose the correct programme and temperature for each wash.
• Do not exceed maximum load!
• Be careful not to trap any items of clothing.
Preparing Laundry
• Treat stains before washing.
• Items to be put into a cleaning net before going into
the washing machine. i.e. Bras with metal wires, tights
and lace clothing should all be washed in a cleaning
net to prevent damage.
• Check that any pockets on clothing do not contain
any objects which may damage your clothes and the
washing machine.
• Tie up any loose strings on laundry, close zippers and
reverse clothing with zips inside out.
• Remove any surplus hair, animal fur, sand, and other
materials with a brush before washing.
• If clothes have raised fabric turn them inside out.
• Clothes that are not colour fast should be washed
separately.
• Insert your clothes into the washing machine. Close
the washing machine door. Ensure not to trap any
items of clothing between the loading door and
rubber seal.
INSTRUCTION MANUAL
Adding Detergent and Softener
• Add detergent into the appropriate dispenser.
• Apply softener before you start washing to prevent
static.
• Apply detergent and softener according to the
washing amount, the soiling level, the water hardness
in your area and the manufacturer’s instructions of
these products.
Dilute viscous fabric softener and fabric conditioner with water. Prevent blockage of the
overflow. Maximum level is 40ml.

INSTRUCTION MANUAL
• Do not use washing machine when the
detergent drawer is removed. It may cause a
water leak or it may not work normally.
• If you forget to add detergent, you can
drain the washing machine by running a
DRAIN only programme. Then you can add
detergent and start the programme again.
Detergent only reaches the drum when
water flushes through the detergent drawer.
• To prevent powered detergent staying in
the drawer, dry the inside of the drawer with
a cloth. Make sure the powder isn’t lumpy
when you add it into the drawer.
• If the rinse cycle isn’t removing all the
detergent from your wash, use less
detergent.
• Softener should not exceed the MAX level
in the compartment.
• Wash out unused softener with a splash of
water or a damp cloth after the programme
has finished.

Important Information
Washing Delicates (Wool and Delicates Programmes)
These programmes rock the drum gently for best results on delicate laundry.
• Delicate laundry loads: 1.5kg or less
• Tips for Wool/Delicate programme:
Approximate Weights:
– Wool sweater (400g)
– Silk blouse / under garment (200g)
– Trousers (400g)
Adding Delicate Laundry Items to the Drum
• Close zips and buttons.
• Add items one by one on top of each other.
• Don’t overload the drum as it may cause excessive
vibration or damage to the washing machine.
Which Detergent to Use
• For wool items, use a mild liquid detergent. Other detergents may damage your clothes.
• With Wool or Delicates programmes, you may need to use the Extra Rinse cycle to
remove excess detergent from your clothes. This depends on the amount of detergent
you use, and the amount of foam that develops in the main wash cycle.
• To do this, once the programme has finished, select the Wool programme to rinse again.
Then select RINSE using the Power & Programme Selection Dial and press START/PAUSE
button.
Tips for Hanging Delicate Items to Dry
INSTRUCTION MANUAL
• Hang white or light colour clothes, wool and nylon
away from direct heat or sunlight.
• After washing, smooth creases and folds out of wool
and nylon clothes and return them to their normal
shape before hanging in the shade.
• Use a hanger for shirts, blouses and trousers. You can
wrap a towel around the hanger to fit the shoulder
width of your clothes, so they retain their shape as
they dry.
• Spread woollen items such as seaters out to dry.
If Clothing Shrinks in the Wash...
• You can spread the item out to its original size on an
ironing board, and use dress pins to hold the size and
shape. Then use an iron to steam the item and leave
it to dry.

16/03/2011 12:42 PM
How to Use Laundry Starch
Laundry starch makes your clothes crisp in texture.
Synthetic laundry starch is a stiffening agent.
• To use laundry starch, simply add it to the softener compartment, next to where you add
detergent. It will automatically be applied to your clothes as part of the final rinsing cycle.
• If it’s hard to pour, you can dilute the starch slightly with water before adding it to the
softener compartment. Make sure you don’t fill the compartment over the MAX level.
After using starch, clean the detergent drawer, especially the softener cover. Then
remove any excess starch in the drum, run a QUICK programme without detergent.
How to Use Salt
If the water in your area is hard, deposits will form in the drum. To reduce the hardness of the
water, you will need to add salt after detergent to the main wash compartment. If you use
other treatments like fabric softener or stain remover, add them to your wash in the following
order:
1. Detergent 2. Salt 3. Stain remover
It is recommended that adjustments should be made according to the water hardness level
in your area.

INSTRUCTION MANUAL
If your washing machine is delivered in freezing weather conditions,
leave it at room temperature for 24 hours after you’ve set it up before
using it. This ensures there’s no ice blocking the water supply hose.
If your water supply hose freezes, add 2 or 3 litres of warm water to the
drum. Then run a DRAIN only programme.

What to do if...
INSTRUCTION MANUAL
Buttons don’t work.
While the washing machine is washing, you cannot change the
programme, temperature and process settings.
Door doesn’t open
• Door lock may be active.
• The water temperature or level could be too high.
Unusual odour
• Rubber parts may give off a smell when you first start using
the washing machine, but this goes away over time.
• You can wash the drum by running the WASH programme
once a month.
You can’t see any
water
This is normal: The water level is below the window.
There’s no water going
into the washing
machine
•
•
•
•
There’s only a small
amount of water
• If you have paused the programme and you restart, the
washing machine may drain some water.
• Don’t pour water in through the door.
Water adds up during
washing
This is normal: water is supplied automatically as the level
lowers, and with heavy loads the water may fill up repeatedly.
Water drains away
during washing
This is normal: water often drains and refills to wash off excess
foam. (This is called foam detection.)
There’s no water going
into the washing
machine during rinse
operation
Before rinsing, the washing machine spins to drain water
remaining from the wash. The water will fill up after that.
Rinsing begins before
the spinning finshes
• If your laundry has collected to one side of the drum, rinsing
will start automatically to correct the imbalance.
• If there’s excess foam after washing, water may drain and refill
to wash it off. (This is called foam detection.)
During the spin-dry,
the drum stops and
rotates several times
This is normal. The washing machine has detected an
unbalanced load and is trying to correct it.
Foam and water
remain in the door or
door seal
Although foam and water may remains with the state of
clothing and the amount of detergent, it does not have
influence on the performance of a rinse.
Spin starting is
repeated.
This is normal. Although spin starting may be repeated, it is a
function made to spin quietly.
There’s not much
foam
• This can happen if you’ve put powder detergent directly into
the drum – you must put it in the detergent drawer.
• The amount of foam can vary, depending on the
temperature, level and softness of your water.
• You may not be using enough detergent.
• You may be using a reduced-foam type of detergent.
• Heavily soiled laundry can reduce the amount of foam.
• Larger loads of laundry can also reduce the amount of foam.
The water tap might be turned off.
The water hose or water-supply hose may be frozen.
Your water supply may be disrupted.
The water-supply valve filter, at the joint of the water-supply
hose, may be clogged.

• The amount of foam can vary, depending on the
temperature, level and softness of your water.
• You may have used too much detergent.
• The type of detergent you use could cause excess foam.
There’s no foam
• This can happen if you’ve put powder detergent directly into
the drum – you must put it in the detergent drawer.
• If your laundry has collected to one side of the drum, water
will be supplied automatically to correct the imbalance – and
this will prevent the foam wash.
• The amount of foam can vary, depending on the
temperature, level and softness of your water.
Fabric softener
overflows
• You may have exceeded the MAX level on the detergent
drawer.
• You may have spilt the liquid by closing the detergent drawer
too sharply.
There’s a residue of
powder detergent at
the end of the wash
This can happen if you’ve put powder detergent directly into
the drum – you must put it in the detergent drawer.
There’s an unusual
noise or vibration
• Check there’s nothing metal in the drum.
• Make sure the anchor bolts used in transportation have been
removed.
• Check the washing machine is on a flat, stable surface.
There’s a noise when
the water drains away
This is normal, it’s the pump starting and stopping.
The electricity supply
cuts out while the
washing machine’s on
The washing machine will stop, and won’t start by itself when
the power comes back on. You’ll need to select a programme
and start it again.
A circuit breaker trips
the electricity supply
• The washing machine will stop, and won’t start by itself when
you reset the breaker.
• You’ll need to find out what caused the breaker to trip, and
put this right. Then reset the breaker, turn your electricity
supply back on, and start the washing machine again.
The water supply is
disrupted
When the water comes back on, it may be impure at first.
You’ll need to disconnect the water-supply hose and drain
any impure water through the tap before using your washing
machine again. Remember to re-connect the water supply
hose first.
