Installation requirements
Water supply
• AC 220-240 V / 50 Hz fuse or circuit
breaker is required.
• Use an individual branch circuit specific
to the washing machine.
A proper water pressure for this washing
machine is between 50 kPa and 800
kPa. Water pressure less than 50 kPa
may cause the water valve not to close
completely. Or, it may take longer to fill
the drum, causing the washing machine to
turn off. Water taps must be within 120
cm from the rear of the washing machine
so that the provided inlet hoses reach the
washing machine.
To ensure proper grounding, the washing
machine comes with a power cord
featuring a three-prong grounding plug for
use in a properly installed and grounded
outlet.
Check with a qualified electrician or
service person if you are not sure about
the grounding.
Do not modify the provided plug. If it does
not fit the outlet, call a qualified electrician
to install a proper outlet.
WARNING
• Do NOT use an extension cord.
• Use only the power cord that comes
with the washing machine.
• Do NOT connect the ground wire to
plastic plumbing, gas lines, or hot water
pipes.
• Improperly connected grounding
conductors may cause electric shock.
Installation
Electrical supply and grounding
To reduce the risk of leaks:
• Make sure water taps are easily
accessible.
• Turn off the taps when the washing
machine is not in use.
• Check for any leaks at the water inlet
hose fittings on a regular basis.
CAUTION
Before using the washing machine for
the first time, check all connections at the
water valve and taps for any leaks.
Drain
Samsung recommends a standpipe in
height of 60-90 cm. The drain hose must
be connected through the hose clip to the
standpipe, and the standpipe must fully
cover the drain hose.

Installation
Flooring
Alcove installation
For best performance, the washing
machine must be installed on a solid floor.
Wood floors may need to be reinforced
to minimize vibration and/or unbalanced
loads. Carpeting and soft tile surfaces are
not a good resistance to vibrations and
may cause the washing machine to move
slightly during the spin cycle.
Minimum clearance for stable operation:
CAUTION
Installation
Do NOT install the washing machine on a
platform or a poorly supported structure.

Front
550 mm
If both the washing machine and a dryer
are installed in the same location, the front
of the alcove must have at least a 550 mm
unobstructed air opening. Your washing
machine alone does not require a specific
air opening.
Do not install the washing machine in
areas where water may freeze as the
washing machine always retains some
water in its water valves, pumps, and/or
hoses. Frozen water left in the connection
parts may cause damage to belts, the
pump, and other components of the

Laundry guidelines
STEP 1 Sort
Sort the laundry according to these criteria:
• Care Label: Sort the laundry into cottons, mixed fibres, synthetics, silks, wools, and
rayon.
• colour: Separate whites from colours.
• Size: Mixing different sized items together in the drum improves the washing
performance.
• Sensitivity: Wash delicate items separately using an Easy Iron option for pure, new
woollen items, curtains, and silk items. Check the labels on the items.
NOTE
Make sure to check the care label on the clothing, and sort them accordingly before
starting the wash.

STEP 2 Empty pockets
Empty all the pockets of your laundry items
• Metal objects such as coins, pins, and buckles on clothing may damage other laundry
items as well as the drum.
Turn clothing with buttons and embroideries inside out
• If trousers or jacket zippers are open while washing, the drum may be damaged.
Zippers should be closed and fixed with a string.
• Clothing with long strings may become entangled with other clothes. Make sure to tie
the strings before starting the wash.
STEP 3 Use a laundry net
Before you start
• Brassieres (machine washable) must be placed in a laundry net. Metal parts of the
brassieres may break through and tear other laundry items.
• Small, light clothing such as socks, gloves, stockings, and handkerchiefs may become
caught around the door. Place them inside a fine laundry net.
• Do not wash the laundry net by itself without other laundry. This may cause abnormal
vibrations that could move the washing machine and result in injury.
STEP 4 Prewash (if necessary)
Select the Prewash option for the selected cycle if the laundry is heavily soiled. Do not use
the Prewash option when detergent is manually added into the drum.
STEP 5 Determine the load capacity
Do not overload the washing machine. Overloading may cause the washing machine to
not wash properly. For the load capacity for the type of clothing, see page 34.
NOTE
When washing bedding or bedding covers, the wash time may be lengthened or the spin
efficiency may be reduced. For bedding or bedding covers, the recommended maximum
spin cycle speed is 800 rpm, and the load capacity is 2.0 kg or less.
CAUTION
If the laundry is unbalanced and the “Ub” information code is displayed, redistribute the
load. Unbalanced laundry may reduce the spinning performance.
English 27 Untitled-9 27
2017-11-13
12:54:33
Before you start
STEP 6 Apply a proper detergent type
The type of detergent depends on the type of fabric (cotton, synthetic, delicate items,
wool), colour, wash temperature, and degree of soiling. Make sure to use the laundry
detergent that is designed for automatic washing machines.
NOTE
• Follow the detergent manufacturer’s recommendations based on the weight of the
laundry, the degree of soiling, and the hardness of the water in your local area. If you
are not sure about the water hardness, contact a local water authority.
• Do not use detergent that tends to be hardened or solidified. This detergent may
remain after the rinse cycle, blocking the drain outlet.
CAUTION
Before you start
When washing wool using the WOOL cycle, use only a neutral liquid detergent. If used
with the WOOL cycle, powder detergent may remain on the laundry and discolor the
laundry.
Laundry capsules
To get the best results from using laundry capsules, please follow these instructions.
1. Put the capsule in the bottom of the
empty drum towards the rear.
2. Put the laundry in the drum on top of
the capsule.
28 English
Untitled-9 28
2017-11-13
12:54:33
CAUTION
For cycles using cold water or cycles that complete in less than one hour, it is
recommended to use a liquid detergent. Otherwise, the capsule may not dissolve
completely.
