To minimize the risk of fire in a tumble dryer, the following should be observed:
• Items that have been spotted or soaked with vegetable or cooking oil constitute a fire
hazard and should not be placed in a tumble dryer.
Oil-affected items can ignite spontaneously, especially when exposed to heat
sources Such as in a tumble dryer. The items become warm, causing an oxidation
reaction in the oil. Oxidation creates heat. If the heat cannot escape, the items can
become hot enough to catch fire. Piling, stacking or storing oil-affected items can
prevent heat from escaping and so create a fire hazard.
If it is unavoidable that fabrics that contain vegetable or cooking oil or have been
contaminated by hair care products be placed in a tumble dryer they should first be
washed in hot water with extra detergent-this will reduce, but not eliminate, the
hazard. Washed in hot water with extra detergent-this will reduce, but not
eliminate, the hazard. The ‘cool down’ cycle of tumble dryers should be used to
reduce the temperature of the items. They should not be removed from the tumble
dryer or piled or stacked while hot.
• Items that have been previously cleaned in, washed in, soaked in or spotted with
petrol/gasoline, dry-cleaning solvents or other flammable or explosive substances
should not be placed in a tumble dryer.
Highly flammable substances commonly used in domestic environments include
acetone, denatured alcohol, petrol/gasoline, kerosene, spot removers (some
brands), turpentine, waxes and was removers.
• Items containing foam rubber (also known as latex foam) or similarly testured
rubber. like materials should not be dried in a tumble dryer on a heat setting.
Foam rubber materials can, when heated, produce fire by spontaneous combustion.
• Fabric softeners or similar products should not be used in a tumble dryer to eliminate
the effects of static electricity unless this practice is specifically recommended by the
manufacturer of the fabric softener or product.
• Undergarments that contain metal reinforcements should not be placed in a tumble
dryer.
Damage to the tumble dryer can result if metal reinforcements come loose during
drying. When available a drying rack could be used for such items.
• Plastic articles such as shower caps or babies waterproof napkin covers should not
be placed in a tumble dryer.
• Rubber-backed articles, clothes fitted with foam rubber pads, pillows, galoshes and
rubber-coated tennis shoes should not be placed in a tumble dryer.

C
are before washing
■ Before the first washing
Select a cycle (COTTON 60°C, add a half load of detergent) allow the unit to wash
without clothing. This will remove residues and water from the drum that may have been left
during manufacturing.
■ Caring before washing
1. Care Labels
Look for a care label on your clothes. This will tell you about the fabric content of your garment and
how it should be washed.
2. Sorting
To get the best results, Sort clothes into loads that can be washed with the same wash cycle.
Water temperature and spin speed and different fabrics need to be washed in different ways.
Always sort dark colors from pale colors and whites. Wash separately as dye and lint transfer can
occur causing discoloration of white etc. If possible, do not wash heavily soiled items with lightly
soiled one.
Soil (Heavy, Normal, Light)
Separate clothes according to amount of soil.
Color (White, Lights, Darks)
Separate white fabrics from colored fabrics.
Lint (Lint producers, Collectors)
Wash lint producers and lint collectors
separately.
3. Caring before loading
Combine large and small items in a load. Load large items first. Large items should not be more than half
the total wash load.
Do not wash single items. This may cause an out-of-balance load. Add one or two similar items.
• Check all pockets to make sure that they
are empty. Items such as nails, hair clip,
matches, pens, coins and keys can damage
both your washer and your clothes.
• Close zippers, hooks and strings to
make sure that these items don’t
snag on other clothes.
• Pre treat dirt and stains by brushing a little
detergent dissolved in water onto stains like
collars and cuffs to help shift dirt.
• Check the folds of the flexible gasket (gray) and
remove any small articles,if any.
• Check inside of the drum and remove any left
items in it for next wash cycle.
• Remove any clothing or items on the flexible
gasket to prevent clothing and the gasket
damages.

3. Detergent dosage
• The detergent should be used according to the
instruction of the detergent manufacture.
• If too much detergent is used, too many suds
can occur and this will decrease the washing
result or cause heavy load to the motor.
• Use powder detergent only for the front
loading washer.
❇ If suds occur too much, pleas reduce the
detergent amount.
• Detergent usage may need to be adjusted
for water temperature, water hardness,
size and soil level of the load. For best
results, avoid oversudsing.
❋ Tips
Full load : according to
manufacturer’s recommendation.
Part load : 3/4 of the normal
amount.
Minimum load : 1/2 of full load.
• Detergent is flushed from the dispenser
at the beginning of the cycle.
