unction Information
Our machine provides various washing methods which suits various conditions
and types of laundry.
Different types of laundry washing
FUZZY Wash
Use this Program for mixed loads e.g. sheets, towels, T-shirts. (refer to page 16)
JEANS Wash
Use this Program for heavily soiled durable garments e.g. overalls, jeans.
Thick and heavy clothes or those which are excessively dirty like jeans or working uniforms can be washed. (refer to page 16)
ECO COTTON
Use this program to save water consumption. (refer to page 16)
WOOL Wash
Wool clothes (lingerie, wool, etc.) which may be easily damaged can be washed. (refer to page 16)
The fibers of machine washable woolens have been specifically modified to prevent felting when they are machine washed.
Most handknitted garments are not made of machine washable wool and we recommend that you hand wash them
• Before washing your woolens check the care label for the washing instructions.
• When washing woolens use a mild Detergent recommended for washing wool.
• Hand washed woolens may be spun in a washing machine to reduce the time they take to dry.
• To dry woolens lay them down flat on a towel and pat into shape. Dry woolens out of direct sunlight.
(The heat and tumble action of a dryer may cause shrinkage or felting of woolen garments.)
Some wool underlays and sheepskin products can be washed in a washing machine but may cause pump blockages.
(Ensure that the whole article is suitable for machine washing and not just the backing material.)
You may wish to handwash these articles and place them in the machine to spin dry.
FAVORITE Wash
This setting allows you to store your FAVORITE wash conditions in the normal cycle memory. (refer to page 19)
SILENT Wash
Use this program to wash quietly at night. (refer to page 20)
Washing according to the condition of laundry
QUICK WASH
QUICK WASH can be selected to wash lightly soiled clothes of less than 2.0 kg in a short time. (refer to page 16)

U
se of Water, Dispenser Drawer, Detergent, Bleach and Softener
Using Water
Amount of WATER LEVEL
• This machine detects the quantity of laundry automatically, then sets the
WATER LEVEL and suggests an amount of Detergent.
• When you select a wash program, the WATER LEVEL and amount of
Detergent (to be used) will be shown on the control panel.
• The following table shows the amount of water.
• When the WATER LEVEL is automatically detected, it may differ depending
on the quantity of laundry even though the same WATER LEVEL is indicated
on the control panel. Therefore the water level may need to be manually increased
to suit the load type which may be bulky, but not heavy.
NOTE
[ Minimum water amount ]
Water level depends on laundry load and washer model.The washer detects the required minimum water level and will not start
washing until this water level is reached.The water will fill automatically via the inlet valves, however if water is manually poured
into the tub via a bucket or similar vessel (NOT RECOMENDED), the washer will still detect this water and the wash cycle will
commence once the required water level is reached. NOTE :the cycle will not start until the lid is closed.
Water Temperature
• The machine sets the appropriate temperature automatically according to the wash program .
• You can change the Water Temperature by pressing the WATER TEMP. button. (refer to page 14)
• The temperature of the water impacts the effectiveness of all laundry additives and therefore, the cleaning results.
We recommend temperatures of:
- HOT 49~55°C…(120-140˚F)
White items, diapers, underclothing and heavily soiled, colorfast items.
- WARM 29~40°C…(85-105˚F)
Most items
- COLD* 18~24°C…(65-75˚F)
Only very bright colors with light soil.
• When washing in COLD water additional steps may be needed:
- Pre dissolve Detergent in WARM water and add to the machine by hand.
- Pretreat spots and stains
- Soak heavily soiled items
- Use appropriate bleach
* Temperature below 18°C…(65˚F) will not activate laundry additives and may cause lint, residue, poor cleaning, etc.
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.
NOTE
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 the Dispenser Drawer
The dispenser drawer contains 2 compartments:
• Liquid Fabric Softener
• Low sudsing powder, High-Efficiency Detergent
The dispenser automatically dispenses additives at the proper time in the wash cycle.
1. Slowly open the dispenser drawer by pulling the drawer out until it stops.
2. After adding laundry products, slowly close the dispenser drawer. Closing the
drawer too quickly could result in early dispensing of additives.
• Avoid overfilling or splashing when adding laundry products to the dispenser. Doing
so could result in early dispensing of laundry products.
At the end of the cycle, you may see water in the compartments. This is part of the
normal operation of the washer.
NOTE : Do not use bleach in the dispenser drawer. We also recommend the use of powdered detergents be used
in the dispenser draws. Liquid detergents can be added directly to the wash as the water is filling.
Powdered detergent is recommended for this function so that it does not dispense into the bowl prematurely.
11
Detergent
Follow the Detergent package directions. Using too much Detergent is a common cause of laundry problems
Use more Detergent if you have hard water, large loads, greasy or oily soils or higher Water Temperature.
Choosing the right Detergent
We recommend the use of front loader type, low sudsing high efficiency 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.
Using Detergent
How much Detergent
The correct amount of Detergent will vary depending on the amount of soil in your clothes (Jeans and work
clothes may need more Detergent, while bath towels usually need less.).
For liquid and concentrated Detergents, follow the recommendations of the Detergent manufacturer.
Note: To check you are using the correct amount of Detergent, lift the lid of your machine about halfway through the wash. There should be a thin layer of foam over the surface of the water. Lots of
foam may look good, but it does not contribute to cleaning your clothes. No foam means not enough
Detergent has been used; soil and lint can settle back on the clothes or the washing machine.
If excess Detergent is used, the rinse will not be as clean and efficient. Also, it could cause
environmental pollution, And long term scrud build up.
Adding Detergent
Add measured detergent to the detergent compartment of the dispenser drawer.
We recommend the use of powdered detergent in the dispenser when using a delay wash function.
It is recommended to dissolve the measured amount of detergent in 1 litre of water before adding to
the machine.
Detergent is flushed through the dispenser at the beginning of the wash phase.
Detergent usage may need to be adjusted for water temperature, water hardness, size and soil level of the load.
Avoid using too much detergent in your washer, as it can lead to oversudsing and detergent residue being left on
the clothes.

How to install the drain hose
1. Fit the machine end of the drain hose to the outlet of the
drain pump and tighten the clamp.
2. Put the other end of the drain hose over the standpipe or
wash tub.
3. Fit the plastic holder into the holes located at either side of
the rear of the machine. The holder will fit in either
direction accordign to location of the standpipe. Make sure
that the holder holds the drain hose firmly so that the
drain hose does not hang down as shown in the fig.
NOTE
• To prevent syphoning, the drain hose should not extend more
than 50 mm from the end of the hose guide.
• The discharge height should be approximately 0.9~1.2m from
the floor. If the drain hose is laid on the ground, the water
will drain out continuously when filling.
Flooding drainage
• Your machine requires a floor drainage slope Or hole that will SAFELY DISPOSE of the FULL FLOW of
any water that may leak out should the machine malfunction.
It is therefore the OWNER'S RESPONSIBILITY to make sure this machine is installed in an area with a
drain hole (or slope)that will prevent any possibility of water damage to floor coverings or property.
Connect the inlet hose
• Check that sealing washers are firmly seated.
• Attach the curved end of the hose to the inlet valve of the
washing machine;
Tighten the coupling nuts securely by hand.(Fig.1)
• Attach the straight end of the hose to the tap.
Tighten the coupling nuts securely by hand.(Fig.2)
• Either hose can be attached to hot inlet valve and tap.
• Turn on the taps and check for leaks.Tighten the
coupling nuts firmly if there is any leakage.If the inlet
water pressure is high,only partially open the tap to
reduce the pressure to the washer.
• Do not install the washer outdoors or where it is directily exposed to sunlight, wind, rain, etc.
• Plug the power cord of this washer into a properly installed 240 volt 50Hz. power point that is switched & earthed.
• Permissible water temperature : Max 60˚C(140˚F)
• Permissible water pressure : Max 87 psi (600 kPa, 6.0 kg/cm2), Min 7.2 psi (50 kPa, 0.5 kg/cm2)
• If water temperature &pressure is greater than above,it may cause a malfunction or even possibly damage the machine.
If you have uncontrolled water temperature &pressure you should fit a temperature &pressure relief valve to ensure
that water temperature &water pressure remains within the safe limits.Consult a plumber or electrician if you are
unable to adjust water temperature and pressure.
• Do not over tighten the coupling nuts with a tool.The Inlet valves have a plastic thread. : Do not strip or crossthread.

CAUTION concerning the Power Cord
Most appliances recommend they be placed upon a dedicated circuit; that is, a single outlet circuit which powers
only that appliance and has no additional outlets or branch circuits. Check the specification page of this owner's
manual to be certain. Do not overload wall outlets. Overloaded wall outlets, loose or damaged wall outlets,
extension cords, frayed power cords, or damaged or cracked wire insulation are dangerous. Any of these
conditions could result in electric shock or fire. Periodically examine the cord of your appliance, and if its
appearance indicates damage or deterioration, unplug it, discontinue use of the appliance, and have the cord
replaced with an exact replacement part by an authorized servicer. Protect the power cord from physical or
mechanical abuse, such as being twisted, kinked, pinched, closed in a door, or walked upon. Pay particular
attention to plugs, wall outlets, and the point where the cord exits the appliance.
