WATER HEATER
Under certain conditions hydrogen gas may be produced in a water heater that has not been
used for two weeks or more.
SAFETY
Hydrogen gas can be explosive under these circumstances. If the
HOT water has not been used for two weeks or more, prevent the possibility of damage or
injury by turning on all HOT water faucets and allowing them to run for several minutes. Do
this before using any electrical appliance which is connected to the HOT water system. This
simple procedure will allow any built-up hydrogen gas to escape. Since the gas is flammable, do
not smoke or use an open flame or appliance during this process.

Use this
appliance only for its intended purpose as described in this Owner's Manual.
Never reach into washer while it is moving. Wait until the machine has completely stopped
before opening the lid.
Do not mix chlorine bleach with ammonia or acids such as vinegar and/or rust remover. Mixing
different chemicals can produce a toxic gas which may cause death.
Do not wash or dry articles that have been cleaned in, washed in, soaked in, or spotted with
combustible or explosive substances (such as wax, oil, paint, gasoline, dry-cleaning solvents,
kerosene, etc.) which may ignite or explode. Do not add these substances to the wash water. Do
not use or place these substances around your washer or dryer during operation.
The laundry process can reduce the flame retardancy of fabrics. To avoid such a result, carefully
follow the garment manufacturer's wash and care instructions.
?
To minimize the possibility of electric
shock, unplug this appliance from the power supply or
disconnect the washer at the household distribution panel by removing the fuse or switching off

Our machine provides various washing methods which suits various conditions and
types of laundry.
Different
types of laundry washing
FUZZY(Normal)
Use this
Wash
Program for everyday washing e.g. sheets, towels,
T-shirts.
(refer to page 14)
JEAN 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 14)
DELICATE Wash
Use this program to wash DELICATE and washable laundries.
(refer to page 14)
WOOL Wash
Delicate clothes
(lingerie, wool, etc.) which may be easily damaged can be washed. (refer to page 14)
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 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.

Guide for Stain Removal
Special
WARNING
Do not use or mix liquid chlorine bleach with other household chemicals such as toilet cleaners, rust removers, acid or

?
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.
