In addition, Detergent manufactures and care labels define COLD water as 26~29°C...(80-85˚F).
If the temperature of the water in the tub is too cold for your hands, the Detergent will not activate and clean effectively.
If iron is present in the water the clothes may become an all-over yellow or they may be stained with brown or orange
spots or streaks. Iron is not always visible. Installation of water softener or an iron filter may be necessary for severe cases.
Using Detergent
Detergent
Follow the Detergent package directions. Using too little Detergent is a common cause of laundry problems.
Use more Detergent if you have hard water, large loads, greasy or oily soils or lower Water Temperature.
Choosing the right Detergent
We recommend the
use of domestic Detergent, (powder, liquid or concentrated). Soap flakes or
granulated soap powders should not be used in your washing machine. When washing woolens
remember to use Detergent suitable for washing woolens.

Removal
WARNING
Do not use or mix liquid chlorine bleach with other household chemicals such as toilet cleaners, rust removers, acid or
products containing ammonia. These mixtures can produce dangerous fumes which can cause serious injury or death.
To reduce the risk of fire or serious injury to persons or property, comply with the basic warnings listed below:
Read and comply with all instructions on stain removal products.
Keep stain removal products in their original labeled containers and out of children's reach.
Thoroughly wash any utensil used.
Do not combine stain removal products, especially ammonia and chlorine bleach. Dangerous fumes may result.
Never wash items which have been previously cleaned in, washed in, soaked in or spotted with gasoline, dry cleaning solvents
or other flammable or explosive substances because they give off vapors that could ignite or explode.
Never use highly flammable solvents, such as gasoline, inside the home. Vapors can explode on contact with flames or sparks.

It only operates in NORMAL Program.
During being detected by the sensor, the LED flashes green, orange
and red in turn. And, after detecting, the LED lights a specific color
according to the detecting condition as follows:
If the current washing condition (Detergent quantity, Water
Temperature, water quality, etc.) is determined as better than the
standard one, it optimizes the algorithm to save the energy by
decreasing washing time/strength, and the LED automatically turns
to red.
If the current
washing condition is determined as worse than the
standard one, it optimizes the algorithm by increasing washing
time/strength, and the LED automatically turns to orange.
If the current washing condition is determined as equal to the standard
one, the algorithm has no
change and the LED turns to green.
Note

For optimizing the washing algorithm, the displaying time may be changed during washing-increased by
8minutes at maximum and decreased by 4 minutes at maximum.
If the Detergent quantity is put more than the standard, for increasing the rinsing performance, it automatically
adds rinsing, and the remaining time may be increased.
The standard detected by the sensor changing the algorithm is set by the normal standard. It may not be same to
the washing habit of a specific user. So, it does not matter that the user uses it according to her/his washing habit.
