CAUTION
••Make sure the drain hose is not kinked or

problems or noise.
NOTE
••Depending on the installation environment,
you may have to purchase a separate drain
hose connector.
Diagonal Check
••When pushing down the edges of the top
plate diagonally, the appliance should not
move up and down at all (check both
directions). If the appliance rocks when
pushing the machine top plate diagonally,
adjust the feet again.
WARNING
••When stacking Main Washer on Mini Washer,
use the leveling feet on Mini Washer to level
both. Main Washer´s leveling feet should be
minimized and the locknuts turned counterclockwise to secure them.
NOTE
••Timber or suspended type flooring may
contribute to excessive vibration and
unbalance.
••If Mini Washer is installed on a raised
platform, it must be securely fastened in order
to eliminate the risk of falling off.
18
EN
Using Anti-Slip Sheets (Optional)
If you install the appliance on a slippery
surface, it may move because of excessive
vibration. Incorrect leveling may cause
malfunction through noise and vibration. If this
occurs, install the anti-slip sheets under the
leveling feet and adjust the level.
1
Clean the floor to attach the anti-slip sheets.
••Use a dry rag to remove and clean foreign
objects and moisture. If moisture remains,
the anti-slip sheets may slip.
2
Adjust the level after placing the appliance
in the installation area.
3
Place the adhesive side of the anti-slip
sheets on the floor.
••It is most effective to install the anti-slip
sheets under the front feet. If it is difficult
to place the pads under the front feet,
place them under the back feet.
This side up
Adhesive side
4
Ensure the appliance is level.
••Push or rock the top edges of the
appliance gently to make sure that the
appliance does not rock. If the appliance
rocks, level the appliance again.
NOTE

Caring before loading.
••Do not wash 'memory wire' on female
inner wear (such as a brassiere) as it may
damage other clothes or the washing
machine and create noise.

Sorting laundry.
••To get the best results, sort clothes into
loads that can be washed with the same
wash cycle.
••Different fabrics need to be washed at
varying temperatures and spin speeds.
••Wash two or more towels or knits
together. If washed separately, laundry
which absorbs a lot of water may not be
washed well or abnormal spin-drying may
occur due to leaning.
••Always sort dark colours from pale colours
and whites. Wash separately as dye and
lint transfer can occur causing
discolouration of white and pale garments.
If possible, do not wash heavily soiled
items with lightly soiled ones.
−−Soil (Heavy, Normal, Light) :
Separate clothes according to amount of
soil.
−−Colour (White, Lights, Darks):
Separate white fabrics from coloured
fabrics.
−−Lint (Lint producers, Collectors):
Wash lint producers and lint collectors
separately.
••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
small amount of detergent dissolved water
onto stains to help lift dirt.
••If an item of clothing has a long lace
attached to it, arrange the lace so it
cannot be tangled or put it into a washing
net.
••Remove the insides of cushions, pillows,
or sitting mats and only wash the cover.
The insides may protrude, damaging other
laundry. Plastic parts may generate
abnormal vibrations.
CAUTION
••Divide laundry in large volume for washing so
that the laundry can be submerged under
water completely. If laundry expands during
washing, it may cause damage to the laundry
and parts during washing or spin.
21

Adding Cleaning Products
Adding Detergent
Detergent Dosage
Measure the detergent with the detergent
dispenser and pour it into the tub.
••Detergent should be used according to the
instruction of the detergent manufacturer and
selected according to type, colour, soiling of
the fabric and washing temperature.
••If too much detergent is used, too many suds
can occur and this will result in poor washing
results or cause heavy load to the motor.
••If you wish to use liquid detergent follow the
guidelines provided by the detergent
manufacturer.
••If too many suds occur, 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.
••Refer to the label of the clothes, before
choosing the detergent and water
temperature.
••When using the washing machine, use
designated detergent for each type of clothing
only:
−−General powdered detergents for all types of
fabric
−−Powdered detergents for delicate fabric
−−Liquid detergents for all types of fabric or
designated detergents only for wool
••For better washing performance and
whitening, use detergent with the general
powdered bleach.
••Use the provided detergent measuring cup to
add only one cup of detergent.
••Reduce the amount of detergent for lightly
soiled laundry. If you use too much detergent,
excessive bubbles will remain after rinsing.

••The softener can also be diluted with water
and added directly into the drum. Do not pour
undiluted softener directly onto clothing
because it may stain fabrics.
Adding Water Softener
••A water softener, such as anti-limescale (e.g.
Calgon) can be used to cut down on the use
of detergent in extremely hard water areas.
Dispense according to the amount specified
on the packaging. First add detergent and
then the water softener.
••Use the quantity of detergent required for soft
water.
CAUTION
••Do not directly put bleach to the laundry. This
may cause partial discoloration and severe
damage to the laundry.
••Do not use chlorine bleach or acidic cleaner
when washing the laundry, as it can cause
damage to clothes such as discoloration and
decoloration of laundry.
