To minimize the risk of fire in a tumble dryer, the following should be observed:
• Items that have been spotted or soaked with vegetable or cooking oil constitute a fire
hazard and should not be placed in a tumble dryer.
Oil-affected items can ignite spontaneously, especially when exposed to heat
sources Such as in a tumble dryer. The items become warm, causing an oxidation
reaction in the oil. Oxidation creates heat. If the heat cannot escape, the items can
become hot enough to catch fire. Piling, stacking or storing oil-affected items can
prevent heat from escaping and so create a fire hazard.
If it is unavoidable that fabrics that contain vegetable or cooking oil or have been
contaminated by hair care products be placed in a tumble dryer they should first be
washed in hot water with extra detergent-this will reduce, but not eliminate, the
hazard. Washed in hot water with extra detergent-this will reduce, but not
eliminate, the hazard. The ‘cool down’ cycle of tumble dryers should be used to
reduce the temperature of the items. They should not be removed from the tumble
dryer or piled or stacked while hot.
• Items that have been previously cleaned in, washed in, soaked in or spotted with
petrol/gasoline, dry-cleaning solvents or other flammable or explosive substances
should not be placed in a tumble dryer.
Highly flammable substances commonly used in domestic environments include
acetone, denatured alcohol, petrol/gasoline, kerosene, spot removers (some
brands), turpentine, waxes and was removers.
• Items containing foam rubber (also known as latex foam) or similarly testured rubber.
like materials should not be dried in a tumble dryer on a heat setting.
Foam rubber materials can, when heated, produce fire by spontaneous combustion.
• Fabric softeners or similar products should not be used in a tumble dryer to eliminate
the effects of static electricity unless this practice is specifically recommended by the
manufacturer of the fabric softener or product.
• Undergarments that contain metal reinforcements should not be placed in a tumble
dryer.
Damage to the tumble dryer can result if metal reinforcements come loose during
drying. When available a drying rack could be used for such items.
• Plastic articles such as shower caps or babies waterproof napkin covers should not
be placed in a tumble dryer.
• Rubber-backed articles, clothes fitted with foam rubber pads, pillows, galoshes and
rubber-coated tennis shoes should not be placed in a tumble dryer.

C
are before washing
Before the first washing
Select a cycle (COTTON 60°C, add a half load of detergent) allow the unit to wash without clothing.
This will remove residues from the drum that may have been left during manufacturing.
Caring before washing
1. Care Labels
Look for a care label on your clothes. This will tell you about the fabric content of your garment and
how it should be washed.
2. Sorting
To get the best results, Sort clothes into loads that can be washed with the same wash cycle.
Water temperature and spin speed and different fabrics need to be washed in different ways.
Always sort dark colors from pale colors and whites. Wash separately as dye and lint transfer can
occur causing discoloration of white etc. If possible, do not wash heavily soiled items with lightly
soiled one.
Soil (Heavy, Normal, Light)
Separate clothes according to amount of soil.
Color (White, Lights, Darks)
Separate white fabrics from colored fabrics.
Lint (Lint producers, Collectors)
Wash lint producers and lint collectors
separately.
3. Caring before loading
Combine large and small items in a load. Load large items first. Large items should not be more
than half the total wash load.
Do not wash single items. This may cause an out-of-balance load. Add one or two similar items.
• Check all pockets to make sure that they are
empty. Items such as nails, hair clip,
matches, pens, coins and keys can damage
both your washer and your clothes.
• Pre treat dirt and stains by brushing a little
detergent dissolved in water onto stains like
collars and cuffs to help shift dirt.
• Close zippers, hooks and strings to make
sure that these items don’t snag on other
clothes.
• Check the folds of the flexible gasket (gray)
and remove any small articles,if any.
• Check inside of the drum and remove any left
items in it for next wash cycle.
• Remove any clothing or items on the flexible
gasket to prevent clothing and the gasket
damages.

NOTE
Precaution when using the detergent
• Refer to the detergent usage reference table and add the proper amount of detergent accordingly.
1) Because the drum washer uses the washing method of utilizing the height difference, it can wash the
laundry with about 1/3 of the amount of water. Therefore when adding the detergent, you must reduce the
amount to 1/3 of the general washer.
2) When washing relatively clean laundry, reduce the amount of detergent. The more you use the detergent,
the more the amount of generated bubbles. Therefore you can still have bubbles even after the rinse
cycle.
3) If the quality of the water is good (Sweet water), the washing capability and the amount of bubbles
generated increase. Therefore you can reduce the amount of detergent.
• Stains on inner wear (Cotton) or baby clothes (Cotton) are generally from sebum or protein substance.
Therefore rather than increasing the amount of the detergent, it is more effective to wash at higher
temperature and to increase the number of rinse cycles.
• If you use the detergent excessively, the following problems can occur.
1) Excessive bubbles can increase the rinse time and the normal rinse cycle may not be possible.
2) Bubbles may not be completely removed after the final rinse cycle.
• Natural power soap does not dissolve well in water can easily block the drain to cause leakage or other
problems. Therefore you must dissolve natural powder soap in warm water before applying to the washer.
• If you have selected the Pre-wash, use less than half of the detergent amount of the main wash cycle. And
because the water supply cycle time is short, add the detergent prior to starting the washing cycle.
• When the detergent container is set, the addition of the detergent may not be smooth. Therefore wipe any
moisture in the detergent container to make it more effective.
• The reason the water looks white while draining is due to the fine bubbles generated from high speed
rotation of pump propeller while lint, zeolite and fabric softener are drained. Therefore, just because the
water looks white does not mean the rinse is incomplete.
• When using the liquid detergent, make sure to add below the MAX line of the liquid detergent box of the
detergent/fabric softener container.
• Do not leave liquid detergent in the detergent container for a long period of time. The liquid detergent will be
hardened and not be applied.
• When using the general detergent, it is recommended to use the detergent exclusively for the drum washer
as it may generate excessive bubbles.
• For the lump detergent, make sure to dissolve it before adding to the washer.

Guide on adding fabric softener
• Fabric softener is automatically added in the final rinse cycle.
• Limit the amount of fabric softener to below MAX line.
(If you exceed the reference line, it may be added directly.)
• Do not keep the fabric softener in the detergent container for more than 2 days.
(Fabric softener will get hardened and may not automatically be added during the rinse cycle.)
• Do not use concentrated fabric softener.
(The fabric softener may not be added properly.)
• If there is water in the fabric softener inlet, pull out the container and wipe out the water before adding
the fabric softener.
• Because the fabric softener is added in the final rinse cycle, the water drained from the final rinse
cycle may look turbid.
