This option loads the previous course settings.

The Last Settings feature automatically remembers the last course that was run, making it possible to use the same settings as the last time the washer was used without having to manually select all the settings.

• Diamond Drum

The diamond shaped drum creates a high water pressure, removing dirt from the laundry effectively. The diamond drum minimizes fabric damage extending the lifetime of the fabric.

The glittering inner tube is both beautiful and powerful in the wash effect it creates.

• Fuzzy Control

• Wobble (Option)

Conventional top loading automatic washing machines rotate the laundry clockwise or counter clockwise in 2 dimensions but Wobble Technology™ rotates the laundry by throwing it around in 3 dimensions.

Since Wobble Technology™ moves the laundry horizontally and vertically at the same time, the rotating water stream may seem different from that of other washing machines.

One of the features of the 3 dimensional wash function of Wobble Technology™ is washing at multiple water levels and this may include a wash period performed at a low water level.

• Magic Filter

This unique Magic Filter ensures that all the lint inside the tub is captured for top quality filtering results to deliver consistently effective cleaning results.

ADDING DeTeRGeNT

1. Open the detergent drawer and then add the powder detergent into the detergent compartment.

2. Add detergent evenly so that it doesn’t brim over the edge of the drawer.

Use a reasonable amount of detergent.

If you use more detergent than the standard quantity or the water temperature is too low and the detergent does not dissolve in the water completely causing it to remain on the laundry and in the hose and tub, it may cause damage such as dirtying and discoloring the laundry.

If you use a powder detergent and it remains on the laundry, it may cause a bad odor.

Rinse the laundry sufficiently in fresh water.

CAUTION

If you spread a powder detergent over the laundry directly, it may result in discoloration.

Make sure to insert it into the detergent compartment.

If the water pressure is low, the detergent may remain in the detergent compartment.

ADDING fABRIC SOfTeNeR

1. When the proper amount (one time dose) of fabric softener is stored in the softener inlet, it is automatically added during the last rinse cycle.

2. Do not add detergent, bleach or starch into the softener inlet.

3. Using too much softener may produce unsatisfactory results.

4. Do not open the lid during the Spin cycle. If added too early, its effectiveness will decrease.

5. Do not leave the softener in the softener dispenser for a long time as it may congeal.

If the water pressure is low, the fabric softener may remain in the softener compartment. In this case, put the fabric softener into the tub directly.
