MEETING INSTALLATION REQUIREMENTS
Electrical supply and grounding
To prevent unnecessary risk of fire, electrical shock, or personal injury, all wiring and grounding
must be done in accordance with the National Electrical Code ANSI/FNPA, No. 70 Latest
Revision and local codes and ordinances. It is the personal responsibility of the appliance owner
to provide adequate electrical service for this appliance.
WARNING
Never use an extension cord.
Use only the power cord that comes with your washing machine.
When preparing for installation, ensure that your power supply offers:
• 220V~240V 50Hz 15 AMP fuse or circuit breaker
• Individual branch circuit serving only your washing machine
Your washing machine must be grounded. If your washing machine malfunctions or breaks
down, grounding will reduce the risk of electric shock by providing a path of least resistance for
the electric current.
Your washing machine comes with a power cord having a three-prong grounding plug for use in
a properly installed and grounded outlet.
Never connect the ground wire to plastic plumbing lines, gas lines, or hot water pipes.
Improperly connecting the equipment-grounding conductor can result electrical shock.
Check with a qualified electrician or serviceman if you are unsure if the washing machine is
properly grounded. Do not modify the plug provided with the washing machine. If it does not fit
the outlet, have a proper outlet installed by a qualified electrician.
Water Supply
Your washing machine will fill properly when your water pressure is 50 kPa ~ 800 kPa. Water
pressure less than 50 kPa may cause water valve failure, not allowing the water valve to shut
off completely. Or, it may take the washing machine longer to fill than what the controls allow,
resulting in your washing machine turning off. (A fill-time limit, designed to prevent overflows/
flooding if an internal hose becomes loose, is built into the controls.)
The water taps must be within 4 feet (122cm) of the back of your washing machine for the
provided inlet hoses provided to reach your washing machine.
Most plumbing supply stores sell inlet hoses of various lengths up to 10 feet (305cm) long.
You can reduce the risk of leaks and water damage by:
• Making water taps easily accessible.
• Turning off taps when the washing machine is not in use.
• Periodically checking for leaks at water inlet hose fittings.
WARNING
Before using your washing machine for the first time, check all connections at the water
valve and taps for leaks.
14_ setting up your new washing machine
WF8804RS-02591C-01_EN(XEU)_ErP.indd 14
2011-8-24 17:28:18
Drain
Samsung recommends a standpipe height of 18 in (46 cm). The drain hose must be routed
through the drain hose clip to the standpipe. The standpipe must be large enough to accept the
outside diameter of the drain hose. The drain hose is attached at the factory.
For best performance, your washing machine must be installed on a solidly constructed floor.
Wood floors may need to be reinforced to minimize vibration and/or unbalanced loads. Carpeting
and soft tile surfaces are contributing factors to vibrations and the tendency for your washing
machine to move slightly during the spin cycle.
Never install your washing machine on a platform or poorly supported structure.
01 SETTING UP
Flooring
Surrounding temperature
Do not install your washing machine in areas where water may freeze, since your washing
machine always retains some water in its water valve, pump, and hose areas. Frozen water in
the lines can cause damage to belts, the pump, and other components.
Alcove or closet installation
To operate safely and properly, your new washing machine requires minimum clearances of:
Sides – 25 mm
Rear – 51 mm
Top – 25 mm
Front – 465 mm
If both the washing machine and a dryer are installed together, the front of the alcove or closet
must have at least 465 mm unobstructed air opening. Your washing machine alone does not
require a specific air opening.
INSTALLING YOUR WASHING MACHINE
STEP 1
Selecting a location
Before you install the washing machine, make sure the location:
•
•
•
•
•
•
Has a hard, level surface without carpeting or flooring that may obstruct ventilation
Is away from direct sunlight
Has adequate ventilation
Will not be freezing (below 32 ˚F or 0 ˚C)
Is away from heat sources such as oil or gas
Has enough space so that the washing machine doesn’t stand on its power cord

STEP 2
Removing the shipping bolts
Before installing the washing machine, you must remove the five shipping bolts from the back of
the unit.
1. Loosen all the bolts with the supplied wrench.
2. Hold the bolt with the spanner and pull it through the wide
section of the hole. Repeat for each bolt.
3. Fill the holes with the supplied plastic covers.
4. Store the shipping bolts away safely in case you have to move the washing machine in the

LAUNDRY GUIDELINES
Follow these simple guidelines for the cleanest laundry and the most efficient wash.
Always check the Care label on clothing before washing.
Sort and wash your laundry according to the following criteria:
• Care Label: Sort laundry into cottons, mixed fibres, synthetics, silks, wools and rayons.
• Colour: Divide whites and colours. Wash new colour items separately.
• Size: Placing items of different sizes in the same load will improve the wash action.
• Sensitivity: Wash delicate items separately, using the Delicate wash cycle for pure, new
woollen items, 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
Before each wash, empty all the pockets of your laundry. Small, irregularly shaped hard objects,
such as coins, knives, pins, and paperclips could damage your washing machine. Do not wash
clothing with large buckles, buttons, or other heavy metal objects.
Metal on clothing may damage your clothing as well as the tub. Turn clothing with buttons and
embroidered clothes inside out before washing them. If zips of pants and jackets are open while
washing, the spin basket may be damaged. Zips should be closed and fixed with a string before
washing.
Clothing with long strings may become entangled with other clothes damaging them. Be sure to
fix the strings before starting the wash.
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,
prewash with a protein-based detergent.
Determining the 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.

• When the laundry is unbalanced (“UE” lights up on the display), redistribute the load.
If the laundry is unbalanced, the spin efficiency may be degraded.
• When washing Bedding or Duvets, the wash time may be lengthened or the spin
efficiency may be degraded.
• For Bedding or Duvets, the recommended load capacity is 1.8(kg) or less.
Make sure to insert brassieres (water washable) into a laundry
net (to be purchased additionally).
• The metal parts of the brassieres may break through the material
and damage the laundry. Therefore make sure to place them inside
a fine laundry net.
• Small, light clothing such as socks, gloves, stockings and
handkerchiefs may become caught around the door. Place them
inside a fine laundry net.

DETERGENT AND ADDITIVES INFORMATION
Which detergent to use
Do not use detergent that has hardended or solidified as the detergent may remain in
the rinse cycle. It may cause your washing machine to not rinse properly or result in the
overflow becoming blocked.
Please note the following when using the Wool course.
• Use a neutral liquid detergent for wool only.
• When using a powder detergent, it may remain on the laundry and cause damage to the
material (wool).
Detergent drawer
02 WASHING A LOAD OF LAUNDRY
The type of detergent you should use is based on the type of fabric (cotton, synthetics, items,
Hand Wash For Wool), colour, wash temperature, and degree of soiling. Always use “low suds”
laundry detergent, which is designed for automatic washing machines.
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 area. If you do not know how hard your
water is, enquire at your local water authority.
Your washing machine has separate compartments for dispensing detergent and fabric softener.
Add all laundry additives to the correct compartment before starting your washing machine.
Do NOT open the detergent drawer when your washing machine is running.
1. Pull out the detergent drawer on the left side of the control
panel.
2. Add the recommended amount of laundry detergent directly
into the detergent compartment
before starting your
washing machine.
3. Add the recommended amount of fabric softener into the
softener compartment
if required.
CAUTION
Do NOT add any powder/liquid detergent to the softener
compartment ( ).
4. When using the Prewash option, add the recommended amount of laundry detergent into
the prewash compartment .
When washing large items do NOT use the following
detergent types.
• Tablet and capsule type detergents
• Detergents using a ball and net
Concentrated or thick fabric softener and conditioner
must be diluted with a little water before being poured
into the dispenser (prevents the overflow from becoming
blocked.)
MAX.
Be careful that the fabric softener does not overflow,
when you close the detergent drawer after adding fabric softener into the rinse detergent
compartment.

Pour warm water into the washing machine drum and let it sit for 10 minutes.
Reconnect the water supply hose to the water tap and check if the water supply and drain
are operating normal.
STORING YOUR WASHING MACHINE
If you need to store your washing machine for an extended time, it’s better to drain and disconnect it.
Washing machines can be damaged if water is left in the hoses and internal components before storage.
1. Select the Quick 29’ cycle and add bleach to the bleach compartment. Run your washing
machine through the cycle without a load.
2. Turn the water taps off and disconnect the inlet hoses.
3. Unplug your washing machine from the electrical outlet, and leave your washing machine
door open to allow air to circulate inside the tumbler.
If your washing machine has been stored in below-freezing temperatures, allow time for any
leftover water in your washing machine to thaw out before using it.

1) Spin extraction is very important when you use a clothes dryer to dry your clothes.
The energy for drying costs much higher than the energy for washing.
Wasing with the high spin saves more energy in drying your clothes in a clothes dryer.
2) The ‘standard cotton 60°C program’ and ‘standard cotton 40°C program’, which can be selected
by adding the Intensive option to the cotton 60°C and cotton 40°C program, are the most efficient
(concerning water and energy consumption) for this type of laundry.
Please run Calibration Mode after the installation(see page 35).
In these programs the actual water temperature may differ from the declared temperature.
3) Distance to the wall from the unit is not included in the depth dimension.
