1. Take the L-shaped arm fitting for the cold water supply hose and connect to the cold water supply
intake on the back of the machine. Tighten by hand.
2. Connect the other end of the cold water supply hose to your sink’s cold water faucet and tighten
it by hand. If necessary, you can reposition the water supply hose at the washing machine end by
loosening the fitting, rotating the hose, and retightening the fitting.

water supply hose to the inlet
water valve at the top of the
washer.
Screw the hose clockwise all the
way in.
2. First, using a ‘+’ type screw driver,
loosen the four screws on the
adaptor. Next, take the adaptor
and turn part(b) following the
arrow until there is a 5mm gap.
3. Connect adaptor to the water tap
by tightening the screws firmly.
Then, turn part (b) following the
arrow and put(a) and (b) together.
4. Connect the water supply hose to
the adaptor. Pull down part (c) of
the water supply hose.
When you release part (c) the
hose automatically connects to
the adaptor making a ‘click’ sound.
•
a
b
If the water tap has a screw type
faucet, connect the water supply
hose to the tap as shown.
Notice :
• After completing connection, if water leaks from the hose, then repeat the same steps. Use the
most conventional type of faucet for water supply. In case the faucet is square or too big, remove
the spacing ring before inserting the faucet into the adaptor.
• The appliance is to be connected to the water mains using new hose-sets and that old hose-sets
should not be used.
Positioning the drain hose
The end of the drain hose may be positioned in three ways:
Over the edge of a wash basin.
The drain hose must be placed at a height of between
60 and 90 cm. To keep the drain hose spout bent, use the
supplied plastic hose guide. Secure the guide to the wall
with a hook or to the faucet with a piece of string to prevent
the drain hose from moving.
ln a sink drain pipe branch
The drain pipe branch must be above the sink siphon so
that the end of the hose is at least 60 cm above the ground.
ln a drain pipe
Samsung recommends that you use a 65 cm high vertical pipe; it must be no longer than 90 cm.

Washing tips and hints
Sorting your laundry: Sort your laundry according to the following characteristics:
• Type of fabric care label symbol: Sort laundry into cottons, mixed fibres, synthetics, silks, wools
and rayon.
• Colour: Divide whites and colours. Wash new, coloured items separately.
• Size: Placing items of different sizes in the same load will improve the washing action.
• Sensitivity: Wash delicate items separately, using the Delicate wash program for pure new wool,
curtains and silk articles. Check the labels on the items you are washing or refer to the fabric care
chart in the appendix.
Emptying pockets: Coins, safety pins and similar items can damage linen, the washing machine drum,
and the water tank.
Securing fasteners: Close zippers and fasten buttons or hooks; loose belts or ribbons should be tied
together.
Prewashing cotton: Your new washing machine, combined with modern detergents, will give perfect
washing results, thus saving energy, time, water and detergent. However, if your cotton is particularly
dirty, use a prewash with a protein-based detergent.
Determining load capacity: Do not overload the washing machine or your laundry may not wash
properly. Use the chart below to determine the load capacity for the type of laundry you are washing.
Fabric Type
Load Capacity
Cotton / Intensive
12.0 kg
Boil / Eco-Boil
7.0 kg
Towel / Quick
5.0 kg
Blanket
1sheet [Within 3kg]
Wool / Lingerie
4.0 kg
Dry
7.0 kg
Detergent tips: The type of detergent you should use is based on the type of fabric (cotton, synthetic,
delicate items, wool), colour, wash temperature, degree and type of soiling.
Always use “low suds” laundry soap, which is designed for automatic washing machines.
Follow the detergent manufacturer’s recommendations based upon the weight of the laundry, the
degree of soiling, and the hardness of the water in your area. If you do not know how hard your water is,
ask your water authority.
Notice : Keep detergents and additives in a safe, dry place out of the reach of children.

Electrical warnings
To reduce the risk of fire, electrical shock, and other injuries, keep these safety precautions in mind:
• Operate the appliance only from the type of power source indicated on the marking label. If you
are not sure of the type of power supplied to your home, consult your appliance dealer or local
power company.
• Use only a grounded or polarized outlet. For your safety, this appliance is equipped with a
polarized alternating current line plug having one blade wider than the other. This plug will fit
into the power outlet only one way. If you are unable to insert the plug fully into the outlet, try
reversing the plug. If the plug still doesn’t fit, contact your electrician to replace your outlet.
• Protect the power cord. Power supply cords should be routed so that they are unlikely to be
walked on or pinched by items placed on or against them. Pay particular attention to cords at
plugs, convenience receptacles, and the point where they exit from the unit.
• Do not overload the wall outlet or extension cords. Overloading can result in fire or electric shock.
