CAUTION
••Adjust the wire hose clamps to prevent the
hoses from coming loose or leaking. Failure to
do so could result in flooding. Use of the drain
connector helps avoid siphoning, odors, or
improper draining.
••Make sure the drain hose is not kinked or
pinched. This is a potential cause of drainage
problems or noise.
NOTE
••Depending on the installation environment, you
may have to purchase a separate drain hose
connector.
Tighten all 4

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.
17
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.

4
Ensure the appliance is level.
••Push or rock the top edges of the

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.
EN
Using the Door and Drawer
Opening the Door and Drawer

door and Mini washer, as this can cause injury.
••Forcing the drawer or the door to open can
cause part damages and safety problems.
••Closing the drawer before having closed the
door completely may scratch the door glass.
••Ensure the drawer is pulled out completely to
prevent the door from contacting Main Washer.
NOTE

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.
22
••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.
