SAFETY
PROPER
INSTALLATION
WARNING
• Under certain conditions hydrogen gas may be produced in a water heater that has not been
used for two weeks or more. 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.
CAUTION
• The base opening must not be obstructed by carpeting when the washing machine is installed on a
carpeted floor.
• Install or store where it will not be exposed to temperatures below freezing or exposed to the weather.
If the product is exposed to such conditions, electric shock, fire, break down or
deformation may occur.
• Properly ground washer to conform with all governing codes and ordinances. Follow details in
Installation Instructions.
If not grounded properly, break down and leakage of electricity may occur, which may
cause electric shock.
• Must be positioned so that the plug is accessible.
If the plug is placed between the wall and the machine, it may get damaged, possibly
causing fire or electric shock.
• Make sure the plug is completely pushed into the outlet.
Failure to do so may cause electric shock and fire due to overheating.

If the AC current outlet has a ground terminal, then
separate grounding is not required. Note that AC power
outlet configurations may differ from country to country
Outlet with ground terminal.
Caution
CAUTION concerning the Power Cord
Most 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 specification 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 these
conditions 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 from physical or
mechanical abuse, such as being twisted, kinked, pinched, closed in a door, or walked upon. Pay particular
attention to plugs, wall outlets, and the point where the cord exits the appliance.
Other Grounding Method
Burying Copper Plate
Connect the Ground Wire to a Ground Copper
Plate and bury it more than 75cm in the ground.

Caution
• To prevent a possible explosion, do not connect ground to a gas pipe
• Do not connect ground to telephone wires or lightning rods. This may be dangerous during electrical
storms
• Connecting ground to plastic has no effect
• Ground wires should be connected when an extension cord is used.

• Always unplug the power cord after use.
When water supply into the tub is not clean or the filter is clogged with particles (such as sand), clean the
filter in the inlet valve occasionally.
(The figure of power cord and water tap may vary according to the country)
To Clean the Filter in the Inlet Valve
1
Close the tap before turning off the power.
Select both HOT/COLD and then press the
[START/PAUSE] button to remove water
from the machine completely.

fabric damage. For satisfactory washing results, follow these instructions.
Problems
Possible Causes
Solutions & Preventive Measures
Poor soil
removal
• Not enough Detergent
• Wash Water Temperature
too low.
• Overloading the washer
• Incorrect wash cycle
• Incorrect sorting
• Do not pretreat stain
• Use correct amount of Detergent for load size, amount of
soil and water Hardness.
• Use WARM or HOT water for normal soil.
Different Water Temperature may be required according to
soil type. (refer to page 10)
• Reduce load size.
• Wash with JEAN or SOAK & JEAN wash cycle for heavy
soiled laundry.
• Separate heavily soiled items from lightly soiled ones.
• Pretreat stain and heavy soil according to directions shown
on page 9.
Blue Stains
• Undiluted fabric softener
dispensed directly onto
fabric
• Rub the stain with bar soap. Wash.
• Do not overfill fabric softener dispenser and do not pour
liquid fabric softener directly onto fabric.
See page 12 for more instructions.
Black or gray
marks on
clothes
• A buildup caused by the
interaction of fabric softener
and Detergent can flake off
and mark clothes
• Not enough Detergent
• Keep the recommendations against Scrud(waxy buildup).
(refer to scrud page12.)
• Use correct amount of Detergent for load size, amount of soil
and water Hardness.
Yellow or
brown rust
stains
• Iron or manganese in
water supply, water pipes,
or water heater
• To restore discolored load of whites, use rust remover safe
for fabric.
• Install nonprecipitating water softener or an iron filter in
your water supply system for an ongoing problem.
• Before washing, run water for a few minutes to clear lines.
Lint
• Incorrect sorting
• Tissues left in pocket
• Overloading the washer
• Wash lint givers eg towels, flannelette sheets, separately
from lint collectors eg synthetic fabrics and remove tissues in
pockets before wash. See page 9 for sorting and caring
before loading.
• Do not overload the washer
Residue or
Detergent
• Overloading the washer
• Undissolved Detergent
• Use too much Detergent
• Do not overload the washer.
• Some Detergents need to be pre-dissolved, check the Detergent
instructions. Try pre-dissolving the Detergent.
• Increase Water Temperature using HOT water safe for fabric.
• Use proper amount of Detergent.
Holes, tears,
or snags
• Incorrect use of chlorine
bleach.
• Unfastened zippers,
hooks, buckles
• Ribs, tears and broken
threads
• Overloading the washer
• Degradation of fabric
• Never pour chlorine bleach directly on fabric.
See page 11 for adding liquid bleach.
• Fasten zippers, hooks, and buckles.
• Remove objects in pockets. See page 9 for caring before
loading.
• Do not overload the washer.
