WARNING!
!
For your safety, the information in this manual must be followed to minimize
the risk of fire or explosion, electric shock, or to prevent property damage,
personal injury, or loss of life.
IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
WARNING : To reduce the risk of fire, electric shock, or injury to persons when using
the washer, follow basic precautions, including the following:
• Do not install or store the washer where it will
be exposed to the weather.
• Do not tamper with controls.
• Do not repair or replace any part of the washer
or attempt any servicing unless specifically
recommended in the user-maintenance
instructions or published user-repair instructions
that you understand and have the skills to carry
out.
• Keep the area underneath and around your
appliances free of combustible materials such as
lint, paper, rags, chemicals, etc.
• Close supervision is necessary if this appliance
is used by or near children.
Do not allow children to play on, with, or inside
this or any other appliance.
• Do not leave the washer door open.
An open door could entice children to hang on
the door or crawl inside the washer.
• Never reach into washer while it is moving. Wait
until the drum has completely stopped.
• The laundry process can reduce the flame
retardant of fabrics.
• Do not wash or dry articles that have been
cleaned in, washed in, soaked in, or spotted with
combustible or explosive substances (such as
wax, oil, paint, gasoline, degreasers, drycleaning solvents, kerosene, etc.) which may
ignite or explode.
• To avoid such a result, carefully follow the
garment manufacturer’s wash and care
instructions.
• Do not slam the washer door closed or try to
force the door open when locked. This could
result in damage to the washer.
• To minimize the possibility of electric shock,
unplug this appliance from the power supply or
disconnect the washer at the household
distribution panel by removing the fuse or
switching off the circuit breaker before
attempting any maintenance or cleaning.
• Never attempt to operate this appliance if it is
damaged, malfunctioning, partially
disassembled, or has missing or broken parts,
including a damaged cord or plug.
SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS
GROUNDING INSTRUCTIONS
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 cord having an equipment-grounding conductor and grounding plug. The plug must be plugged into an
appropriate outlet that is properly installed and grounded in accordance with all local codes and ordinance.
• Do not use an adapter or otherwise defeat the grounding plug.
• If you don’t have the proper outlet, consult an electrician.
WARNING
:
Improper connection of the equipment-grounding conductor can result in risk of electric
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.

C
are before washing
n Caring before washing
1. Care Labels
Look for a care label on your clothes. This will tell you about the fabric content of your
garment and how it should be washed.
2. Sorting
To get the best results, Sort clothes into loads that can be washed with the same wash cycle.
Water temperature and spin speed and different fabrics need to be washed in different ways.
Always sort dark colors from pale colors and whites. Wash separately as dye and lint
transfer can occur causing discoloration of white etc. If possible, do not wash heavily
soiled items with lightly soiled one.
Soil (Heavy, Normal, Light)
Color (White, Lights, Darks)
Lint (Lint producers, Collectors)
Separate clothes according to amount of soil.
Separate white fabrics from colored fabrics.
Wash lint producers and lint collectors
separately.
3. Caring before loading
n Combine large and small items in a load. Load large items first. Large items should not be more
than half the total wash load.
Do not wash single items. This may cause an out-of-balance load. Add one or two similar items.
• Check all the pockets to make sure
that they are empty. Things such
as nails, hair clip, matches, pens,
coins and keys can damage both
your washer and your clothes.
• Close zippers, hook and strings to
make sure that these items don’t
snag on other clothes.
• Pre treat dirt and stains by brushing
a little detergent dissolved in water
onto stains like collars and cuffs to
help shift dirt.
37
A dding detergent
n Adding detergent and fabric softener
1. The Dispenser Drawer
3. Detergent dosage
MAX
• The detergent should be used according to the
instruction of the detergent manufacture.
max
• If too much detergent is used more than the
recommended amount, too many suds can
occur and this will decrease the washing result
or cause heavy load to the motor. (Causing a
malfunction)
• Use powder detergent only for the front
loading washer.
• Main wash only U
• Detergent usage may need to be adjusted
for water temperature, water hardness,
size and soil level of the load. For best
results, avoid oversudsing.
• Pre Wash + Main Wash U
2. Adding Fabric Softener
(
)
MAX
MAX
125 ml
125 ml
• Do not exceed the maximum fill line.
Overfilling can cause early dispensing
of the fabric softener which could stain
clothes.
• Do not leave the fabric softener in the
detergent drawer for more than 2 days.
(Fabric softener could harden)
• Softener will automatically be added
during last rinse cycle.
• Do not open the drawer when water is
supplied.
• Solvents(benzene, etc) are not
allowable.
NOTE

Do not pour fabric softener
directly on the clothes
❋ Tips
Full load : according to
manufacturer’s recommendation.
Part load : 3/4 of the normal amount.
Minimum load : 1/2 of full load.

❋ Detergent can also accumulate inside the recess which should
be cleaned occasionally with an old toothbrush.
• Once you have finished cleaning, replace the drawer and run a
rinse cycle without laundry.
n The washing drum

seen and it is not easily removed.
Over time the build up of scale clogs appliances, and if it is not kept in check these will eventually
have to be replaced.
• Although the washing drum is made of Stainless steel, specks of rust can be caused by small
metal articles (paper clips, safety pins) which have been left in the drum.
• The washing drum should be cleaned from time to time.
• If you use descaling agents, dyes or bleaches, make sure they are suitable for washing machine
use.
