STEP 1 Sort
Sort the laundry according to these criteria:
•
•
•
•
Care Label: Sort the laundry into cottons, mixed fibres, synthetics, silks, wools, and rayon.
Colour: Separate whites from colours.
Size: Mixing different-sized items together in the tub improves the washing performance.
Sensitivity: Follow the cloth-specific instructions on the care label of delicate items such
as pure, new woollen items, curtains, and silk items.
NOTE
STEP 2 Empty pockets
Empty all the pockets of your laundry items, and remove dirt and/or soils from them.
•
•
•
•
•
Metal objects such as coins, pins, and buckles on clothing may damage other laundry
items as well as the tub.
Turn clothing with buttons and embroideries inside out.
If pants or jacket zippers are open while washing, the tub may be damaged.
Zippers should be closed and fixed with a string.
Clothing with long strings may become entangled with other clothes. Make sure to tie the
strings before washing.
STEP 3 Use a laundry net or wash certain items separately
•
•
•
Brassieres (water washable) must be placed in a laundry net. Metal parts of the brassieres
may break through and tear other laundry items.
Cashmilon, large volume garments, and lightweight clothes (lace-decorated clothes,
lingerie, nylon stocking, and synthetic fabrics) may float on water during washing and
cause problems to the machine. Use the laundry net or wash them separately.
Do not wash the laundry net by itself without other laundry. This may cause abnormal
vibrations that could move the washing machine and result in injury.

Make sure the laundry does not exceed the plastic area (A) in the figure on page 26.
Otherwise, it may cause the washing machine to not wash properly or cause damage to the
machine or the laundry itself, or a water leak.
NOTE
When washing bedding or bedding covers, the wash time may be lengthened or the spin
efficiency may be reduced. For bedding or bedding covers, the recommended load capacity is
3.5 kg or less.
CAUTION
STEP 6 Apply a proper detergent type
The type of detergent depends on the type of fabric (cotton, synthetic, delicate items, wool),
colour, wash temperature, and degree of soiling. Always use “low suds” laundry detergent,
which is designed for automatic washing machines.
CAUTION
•
•
•
•
•
•
Use an appropriate amount of detergent. Excess amounts of detergent do not produce
much improvement in washing results but cause damage to the laundry due to
deteriorated rinsing performance.
Bleach is strong alkali in nature, causing damage to or discolouration of the laundry.
Use a longer or added rinse cycle when using powder detergent that is very likely to
remain on the laundry and cause bad odours after washing is complete.
If an excessive amount of detergent is used especially in cold water, the detergent doesn’t
dissolve well, ending up with contaminated laundry, hoses, and/or tub.
In case of timed washing, do not apply detergent directly to laundry or the tub. The
laundry may be discoloured. Use the detergent drawer.
When washing wool using the DELICATES cycle, use only a neutral detergent to avoid
discolouring the laundry.
NOTE
•
•
Follow the detergent manufacturer’s recommendations based on the weight of the
laundry, the degree of soiling, and the hardness of the water in your local area. If you are
not sure about the water hardness, contact a local water authority.
Do not use detergent that tends to be hardened or solidified. This detergent may remain
after the rinse process, blocking the drain outlet.

Before you start
If the laundry is unbalanced and the “Ub” information code is displayed, redistribute the load.
Unbalanced laundry may reduce the spinning performance and cause damage to the machine
