Safety precautions
- This appliance is not intended for use by persons (including children) with reduced physical,
-
-
sensory or mental capabilities, or lack of experience and knowledge, unless they have been given
supervision or instruction concerning use of the appliance by a person responsible for their safety.
Young children should be supervised to ensure that they do not play with the appliance.
Keep ventilation openings in the appliance enclosure or in the built in structure clear of obstruction.
Choose a location that is indoors, completely dry and away from damp environments.
The washer is designed to operate on a single phase power supply within a voltage range of
220~240V/50Hz.
Please keep the appliance away from substances which could cause ignition.
Do not store inflammable materials such as ether, benzene, LP gas and glue etc near the appliance.
Do not splash water on the rear of the appliance, for it may cause malfunction or electric
shock.
Before cleaning the appliance, always switch off and unplug it.
Do not disassemble any part of the clothes washer.
Do not insert your hand and remove items from the washer until it has come to a complete stop.
Do not splash, wet or hose down the appliance. It is recommended to use a damp cloth when
cleaning the cabinet.
Do not attempt to wash fabrics that contain latex or rubber material.
Do not place items that have come in contact with any flammable materials such as
petrol/gasoline, kerosene, cleaning solvents, vegetable oil, cooking oil or any explosive
substances.
Do not place heat sources (candle, heater, etc.) on top of or near the washer.
Do not sit children or heavy object on top of the washer.
Do not pull the power cord out of the power socket by the cord. Always unplug the washer holding
the plug.
If the supply cord is damaged, it must be replaced by the manufacturer, its service agent or
similarly qualified persons in order to avoid hazard.
When disposing of the appliance, do so only at an authorised waste disposal centre.
Safety of children
Packaging (e.g. wraps, polystyrene, etc.) can be dangerous for children. There is a risk of suffocation.
Keep packaging materials away from children. Remember to dispose of old appliances in accordance
with local laws. Pull out the mains plug, cut off the mains cable, break or remove spring or bolt catches
if fixed and ensure that children cannot lock themselves in the appliance when playing (there is risk of
suffocation) or involve themselves in other dangers. Children cannot recogonise the hazard present in
household appliances themselves, therefore it is very important for parents to make adequate
supervision and never let children play with appliances.

clothes washer back to access the adjustable
foot. Ensure all four corners are flat and level
to the surface it is placed on. Ensure the
clothes washer is level and stable prior to
starting each wash. An unstable clothes
washer can cause the drum to shake during a
wash and knock against the cabinet.

clothes washer drain outlet.
2. Fix in place securely to prevent leakage.
Install the water inlet hose
water inlet hose
clamping nut
1. Fasten one end of the inlet hose to the tap.
Ensure there is a rubber washer inside the
hose before fastening. The washer prevents
water leakage.
2. Securely tighten the other end of the inlet
hose to the clothes washer inlet valve.
Ensure the rubber washer is inside the hose
before tightening.
3. When tightening the clamping nut, apply
even pressure. Do not apply too much force
or twist the valve as this may damage or
break the valve joint.

Auto Unbalance Adjustment
During a wash cycle, if the laundry is not evenly placed, the clothes washer will
sense it is unbalanced and attempt to correct itself. The clothes washer attempts to
correct the unbalanced laundry for approximately 1 minute by adding water and
draining. It will attempt to correct itself 2 times. If it is unsuccessful, an alarm will
sound and the laundry will need to be manually corrected and distributed around the
bowl.

WASH GUIDE
Before you wash
Sorting
To get the best wash results it pays to sort your laundry before washing.
Read care labels as they will tell you how the fabric of each garments should be washed.
Sort clothes according to the type of and amount of soil. For example oily soils will require
a higher temperature to lift the stain, whereas mud and blood stains are better washed in
cold as heat can set the stain further into the fabric. Pretreating stains will also improve
upon wash results.
Always sort whites from coloured fabrics, and be sure to wash lint givers (such as towels)
separate to lint collectors (such as synthetics, socks and corduroy like fabric).
Loading
Before each wash be sure to check pockets and remove loose items that may cause
damage to both your washer and your clothes. Close all zippers, hooks and eyes to
prevent them catching on other garments.
Evenly distribute laundry around the bowl, and do not overload the clothes washer as this
will affect its performance.
CAUTION
Detergent
We recommend the use of a domestic top loader powder or liquid. The amount of
detergent to use will vary depending on the size of the load, the amount of soiling and the
type of laundry to be washed. For example, jeans and heavily soiled work clothes will
require more detergent, whereas towels will usually require less.
Follow the instructions on the back of the detergent to determine the correct dose for the
laundry to be washed. Too much detergent does not contribute to better wash results as
the rinse will not be as clean and efficient. This will unnecessarily add to environmental
pollution and a build up on the inside of your washer. Too little detergent may also cause
dirt and lint to settle back onto your clothes.
10
WASH GUIDE
Adding detergent
Add measured detergent to the detergent dispenser drawer. Detergent is flushed from the
dispenser drawer at the beginning of the wash phase.
Fabric softener may be added to the softener dispenser and will automatically be added
during the last rinse cycle. Do not add more than the recommended one time dose per
cycle and be sure to reduce the amount used for smaller wash loads.
detergent dispenser
softer dispenser
It is not recommended that liquid detergents or fabric softeners are used when selecting a
long wash delay as they can congeal in the dispenser draws.
Do not add detergent, bleach or starch into the Softener Dispenser.
Washing
To select a wash program:
a. Press the POWER button
b. Select a wash program
Note: the Bulky program on COLD wash will be selected by default
(see table on page 7 for details)
c. Adjust the water level or temperature if required
d. Press the START/PAUSE button
End of wash cycle
When the wash cycle is complete, the buzzer will sound 6 times and the power will
automatically switch off.
For safety, it is recommended that at this point you turn off the water supply to the washer,
turn off the power and remove the power plug from the main power source.
11
CLEANING & MAINTENANCE
Always disconnect the clothes washer from the mains power source before
performing any maintenance or cleaning of the appliance.
For optimal performance, regular maintenance and cleaning is highly
recommended.
Regular maintenance and cleaning will extend the service life of the clothes
washer.
Cleaning the outer surface of the washer
To clean the cabinet and control panel, use a damp cloth and wipe dry.
Note: Cleansers such as soap powder, abrasive cleaning power, alkali cleansers,
chemical cloth, thinners, alcohol, acid petroleum products and hot water should not be
used to clean the washer as they may damage the painted cover and plastics.
Cleaning the water inlet hose
Clean the water inlet hose joint by
unscrewing and removing the joint
from the washer. Clean the screen
filter gently by using a brush.
Cleaning the lint filter
Be sure to clean the lint filter often
to keep the washer clean. Open the
washer lid and remove the lint filter
from inside the drum. Turn the filter
over and gently clean using water.
Allow to dry before replacing.
Cleaning the drain pump lint filter
1. Drain the water from the drain pump. Have a
container in place to catch the drained water.
Open by turning cover anti-clockwise.
2. Remove the lint filter and gently clean with
water.
3. Let filter dry before replacing. Align convex with
pump hole.
4. Replace the pump cover by tightening in a
clockwise direction.
