Moving and Installing
Removing the Transit Bolts
Four transit 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 follow the instructions
detailed below.
Don’t run the washing machine without removing the transit bolts, as this can cause
excessive vibrations and may damage your machine.
To remove the transit bolts:
1. Use a spanner to loosen the four bolts. They are located at the rear of the washing machine.
2. Pull the bolts out horizontally. Make sure the entire bolt is removed.
3. Push the four cover caps (included with your accessories) into the respective bolt holes.

the connection joints.
Water Drain Hose
Points to remember:
•
Don’t twist, pull out or bend the drain hose.
•
Your washing machine should be no more than 85cm from the drain outlet.
•
The water drain hose should be mounted at a height of minimum 60 cm, maximum 100 cm from
the ground.
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 that the drainage through it is sufficient to
prevent overflowing.
•
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.

For your safety:
•
Do not use a mains plug adapter or extension cable.
•
If the mains cable or mains plug are damaged, stop using them and call a qualified technician for
assistance.
•
An Earthed plug has been attached to the power cable of your washing machine. This plug must
be inserted into an earthed socket capable of supplying 13 Amps. If you have no such sockets and
fuses in your house, call a qualified electrician.
•
The mains plug must remain accessible to allow disconnection or an all pole switch must be
incorporated in the fixed wiring in accordance with the wiring rules.

from the factory, so there may be drops of water or condensation in the washing machine. This
is not an indication of a malfunction.
During initial start-up and use of the unit, there may be a slight smell while the
motor is settling in. This is not a fault; this is normal operation.
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 the maximum load! See the programme selection table for the maximum load for the
programme you require.

Preparing Laundry
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
Treat stains before washing.
Some items should be put into a cleaning net before going into the washing
machine. i.e. bras with metal wires, tights and lace clothing to prevent
damage.
Check that pockets 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.
To prevent any large, heavy objects (e.g., buckles, large buttons, etc.) from
hitting the glass door, turn your clothing inside out, or remove the heavy
objects. These could damage your laundry or the washing machine.
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 that you do not trap any items of clothing between the loading
door and the rubber seal.
Adding Detergent and Softener
•
Add detergent into the appropriate dispenser.
•
Apply softener before you start washing.
•
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.
•
For slightly dirty clothes, do not pre-wash and put a small amount of
detergent in compartment 2 (II) of the detergent drawer.
•
For excessively dirty clothes, select a programme with pre-washing,
use ¼ of the detergent to be used in compartment 1 (I) of the
detergent drawer and the remaining amount in compartment 2 (II).
Main wash
detergent
II
Softener
Pre-wash
detergent
I
Dilute viscous fabric softener and fabric conditioner with water.
Prevent blockage of the overflow. Maximum level is 40ml.
•
Do not use the 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 powder 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.
•
You can use liquid detergents in all programmes without prewash. For this, fit the liquid detergent level
plate from the accessories bag into the 2nd compartment of the detergent drawer and set the amount
of liquid detergent according to the levels on this plate. Remember to detach the liquid detergent
plate when done.

• For all washing programme, please following the detergent recommendations on the garment
label or on the detergent’s packaging.
• When a programme is running, you can’t add optional functions to it.
• The approximate times will change depending upon the ambient temperature of the water
supply, additional functions selected, etc. and if the laundry in the drum will need to be
balanced.
Important Information
Washing Delicates (Wool and Silk Programmes)
These programmes rock the drum gently for best results on delicate laundry.
•
Silk laundry loads: 2kg or less
•
Tips for Wool 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 vibrations
or damage the washing machine.
Which Detergent to Use
•
For woolen items, use a mild liquid detergent. Other detergents may damage your woolen clothes.
•
With Wool or Silk programmes, you may need to use an 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 add an extra rinse cycle, press the Extra Rinse button before you start the programme.
17
L612WM12_IB_120529_Annie.indd 17
12年5月29日 下午2:46
Tips for Hanging Delicate Items to Dry
•
Hang white or light colour clothes, and woolen and nylon
clothes away from direct heat or sunlight.
•
After washing, smooth creases and folds out of woolen 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 sweaters out to dry.
How to Use Laundry Starch
Synthetic laundry starch is a stiffening agent. Follow the laundry starch manufacturer’s instructions.
•
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

Maintenance - Cleaning the Washing Machine
Always unplug the washing machine before cleaning.
Cleaning the Drum
Any rust left inside the drum by metal articles must be removed immediately with chlorine-free detergent.
Never use steel wool.
Don’t put laundry in the washing machine during the drum cleaning.
Cleaning the Exterior of your Washing Machine
•
Clean the outside of your washing machine with a soft cloth and mild detergent such as kitchen
detergent.
•
Don’t splash water over the washing machine.

Press
Pull out at the
same time
Siphon Plug
Pull out the detergent drawer. Remove the siphon plug and clean any residual
softener thoroughly. Fit the cleaned siphon plug in its location. Check it is fitted
properly.
Cleaning the Door Seal and Window

4. Remove any lint and debris before carefully replacing the filter.
5. Turn the filter clockwise to screw back into place. Close the Service Flap.
Preventing a Frozen Water Supply Hose
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.
