Thick and heavy clothes or those which are excessively dirty like jeans or working uniforms can be washed. (refer to page 16)
Delicates Wash

(refer to page 16)
Wool Wash
Delicates 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 down them 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

WARNING!
Do not mix chlorine bleach with ammonia or acids such as vinegar
and/or rust remover. Mixing can produce a toxic gas which may cause death
The manufacturer's recommended amount of undiluted bleach goes into the bleach dispenser. During the
final "Infusor" wash action the bleach is added to the wash load. This ensures performance won't be
diminished. Two sequential flushe through the bleach dispenser completely removes the bleach from the
dispenser. Any residual liquid left in the dispenser at the end of the cycle is water, not bleach. To prevent
self-siphoning of the bleach into the wash basket and damage to your clothes, never add more than the
maximum fill level marked on the dispenser.
Also keep clothes away from the bleach dispenser so they don't absorb any bleach droplets left around
the bleach dispenser.

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
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

concerning the Power Cord
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 spercification 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
theseconditions 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 form physical or
