FEATURES
■ Silver Nano Health System
■ MAGIC FILTER
This is a washing control system that protects the skin from harmful bacteria
and that enables refreshing cleansing and sanitation through anti-bacteria
coating and by killing bacteria that are hidden in clothes at the time of washing
or rinsing.
Moreover, it prevents proliferation of bacteria through anti-bacteria coating of
washed clothes.
• Sterilization algorithm
Nano-silver fast water during washing
Initial washing with powerful water stream
Soak for a fixed period of time (sterilize afterwards)
Finish after regular washing
• Anti-bacteria coating
Nano-silver fast water during the last rising from regular stroke
Soak for a fixed period of time during rinsing (anti-bacteria coating in
between)
Finish rinsing
This unique magic Filter ensures that all the lint inside the tub is captured for
top quality filtering results to deliver consistently effective cleaning results.
■ SOFTENER DISPENSER
The Softener Dispenser releases the fabric softener at the appropriate time
when the last rinsing proceeds.

■ PULSATOR
The Pulsator helps water and detergent to go through fabrics efficiently while
providing both the powerful water action to clean lager and heavier clothes
and the gentle water action to clean all delicates with less wear and tear on
clothes.
■ WATERFALL FLOW
The Waterfall Flow injected from under the pulsator cascades with full force
back into the tub, pushing down any clothes that float right under the water
surface. It is this Waterfall Flow that enables this washing machine to effectively
wash large and heavy items, such as blue jeans and blankets.

CHECKING BEFORE WASHING AND
CARING FOR GARMENTS
CARING FOR CLOTHES BEFORE WASHING
☞ Must follow the checkpoints in order to avoid machine problems or damages
on garments.
☞ If the below problems are caused by customer’s faults, separate service fee will
be charged.
Take out personal belongings from pockets.
☞ Caution, Check the pockets! Hairpins and coins cause
damages to clothes and washing machine.
They make noise and problems to the machine. Must
check the pocket.
If pants zippers are open while washing, the spin basket may be damaged. The
zipper should be closed and fixed with a string before washing.
☞ If blue jeans and working uniform’s zippers or hooks are
made of steel, they must be closed before washing.
☞ Wash winter jumpers, working uniforms, bed cover
sheets, and blue jeans separately.
☞ Fold clothes well into the spin basket. Must remove the
curtain hooks before washing.
☞ Turn inside out the button decorated and embroidered
clothes before washing.
☞ Be careful those metal decorations because they cause heavy damages while
washing.
☞ The long stringed clothes may tangle with other clothes. Must
fix the strings before washing.
☞ The metal from brassieres may stick out and damage other
clothes or the spin basket. Must use the commercial laundry
net for washing brassieres. (Use a laundry net of fine mesh.)
Waterproof clothes (Ski Wear, Diaper Covers, Footboards) are not allowed for
washing.
☞ The waterproof sheet, clothes, and non water
permeable fabrics shouldn’t be washed, rinsed, or
put in a spin basket. The laundry may pop out and
cause severe vibration so that a person may get
damaged and the machine, wall, and floor may
break out in addition to clothes. (Examples are diaper cover, waterproof wear,
raincoat, umbrella cover, ski wears, car cover sheet, and sleeping bags.)
Cautions During Spinning
☞ Spinning of regular garments
− The water from garments is drained out through the spin basket holes.
☞ Spinning of waterproof clothes and fabrics
− Even if the spin basket spins, water can’t drain out from the waterproof
clothes and fabrics. Therefore, water gathers to one side and this cause a
severe vibration. If the spin basket spins at a high speed, water still can’t drain
out from the waterproof clothes and fabrics. As a result, garments move up
and pop out with a big vibration.
Must follow the checkpoints in order to avoid machine problems or damages on
garments.
☞ If the below problems are caused by customer’s faults, separate service fee will
be charged.
Checkpoints Before Starting Washing
Check if the clothes are bleaching or not.
☞ Add liquid detergent to a white towel and the garment where you can’t notice
well. Then, rub together strongly. Check if the color transferred to the towel.
☞ Be careful for scarves and imported clothes since they are easily discoloring.
☞ Check for stains or partial dirt.
☞ If stains are found, use the towel wet with detergents to rub on in a single
direction.
☞ Before washing, the sleeves, collar, dress hem and pockets are pre-treated by
brushing with detergents.
The wrinkle-processed clothes made of wool are specially treated by fixing them with
threads before washing. The threads shall be removed after the clothes are dried.
Not washable laundry
Clothes those are easily transformable even by soaking in water.
☞ Even by soaking in water, neckties, brassieres, jackets, suits and coats can be
easily transformed like shrinking and discoloring on the garment surfaces
because they are mostly made of rayon, polynosic, cuff and their blend fabrics.
☞ The wrinkle-processed, embossed, or resin processed products are easy to
transform even by soaking in water.
☞ Easily discoloring products made of cotton and wool, wrinkled silk, leather
products, leather accessory, leather ornamented clothes and its accessory.
☞ Don’t wash those clothes without handling guideline or material indication tag.
About Detergent
☞ When detergents are not dissolving well, use warm water (about 40°C) to
dissolve the detergent.
Caution
☞ Use an appropriate amount.
☞ Even if excess amount of detergent is used, there is not much difference in
washing result. It may cause damages to the garments because rinsing is not
enough.
☞ The bleaching agent may cause damages to garments since it is strong alkali.
☞ Do sufficient rinsing because the powder detergent is easily remained on the
garments causing bad odors.
☞ If too much detergent is used or cold water is used, it doesn’t dissolve
completely and remain on the garments, hose or spin basket, causing
contamination on clothes.
☞ In case of reserved washing, detergents must be put in the detergent box.
If the powder detergents are spread on laundry directly, it may cause
discoloration.
