•• Make sure the power plug is completely pushed into the power outlet.
•• Do not plug the appliance into multiple outlet sockets or an extension
power cable.
•• Do not modify the power plug provided with the appliance. If it does
not fit the power outlet, have a proper outlet installed by a qualified
•• This appliance must be grounded. In the event of malfunction or
breakdown, grounding will reduce the risk of electric shock by
providing a path of least resistance for electric current.
•• This appliance is equipped with a power cord having an equipmentgrounding conductor and a grounding power plug. The power plug
must be plugged into an appropriate outlet socket that is installed and
grounded in accordance with all local codes and ordinances.
•• Improper connection of the equipment-grounding conductor can
result in risk of electric shock. Check with a qualified electrician or
service personnel if you are in doubt as to whether the appliance is
properly grounded.
•• Tighten and secure the drain hose at connecting ends to avoid
•• For models with only one inlet water supply valve, do not connect to
hot water. Connect to cold water only.
•• Do not use a sharp object such as a knife or scissors to tamper with,
or operate the unit.
•• Do not attempt to separate any panels or disassemble the appliance.

to minimize leakage if a break or rupture should occur. Check the
condition of the fill hoses; they may need replacement after 5 years.
•• Do not use or store flammable or combustible substances (ether,
benzene, alcohol, chemical, LPG, combustible spray, insecticide, air
freshener, cosmetics, etc.) near the appliance.

•• When the air temperature is high and the water temperature is low,
condensation may occur and thus wet the floor.
•• Wipe off dirt or dust on the contacts of the power plug.
•• 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 taps 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.

Connecting the Hose to the Water
Connecting One Touch Type Hose to Tap
Without Thread
Unscrew the adapter ring plate b and loose
the 4 fixing screws.
Remove the guide plate c if the tap is too
large to fit the adapter.
Push the adapter onto the end of the tap
so that the rubber seal is connected to be
watertight. Tighten the 4 fixing screws and the
adapter ring plate.
Connecting the Water Inlet
Before connecting the water inlet hose to the water
tap, check the hose fitting type and then choose
the correct instruction.
Note for Connection
•• Water supply pressure must be between 30
kPa and 800 kPa (0.3 - 8.0 kgf / cm²). If the
water supply pressure is more than 800 kPa, a
decompression device should be installed.
•• Do not overtighten the water inlet hose to the
•• Periodically check the condition of the hose
and replace the hose if necessary.
Checking the Rubber Seal
Two rubber seals a are supplied with the water
inlet hoses. They are used to prevent water leaks.
Make sure the connection to taps should be
sufficiently tight.
Pull the connector latch plate d down, push
the inlet hose onto the adapter, and release
the connector latch plate. Make sure the
adapter locks into place.

Preparing Laundry
Sort laundry for best washing results, and then
prepare laundry according to the symbols on the
care labels.
Sorting the Clothes
•• For best washing results, sort your clothes
according to a care label stating fabric type and
washing temperature. Adjust the spin speed to
wash them.
•• Soil level (Heavy, Normal, Light): Separate
clothes according to soil level. If possible, do
not wash heavily soiled items with lightly soiled
•• Colour (White, Lights, Darks): Wash separately
dark or dyed clothes from whites or light
colours. Mixing dyed clothes with light clothes
can result in dye transfer or discolouration of
lighter clothes.
•• Lint (Lint producers, Collectors): Wash
separately lint producing fabrics from lint
collecting fabrics. Lint producers can result in
pilling and linting on the lint collectors.
Checking the Fabric Care Label
This will tell you about the fabric content of your
clothes and how it should be washed.

Checking the Laundry before
•• Combine large and small items in a load. Load
large items first. Large items should not be
more than half of total load.
•• Do not wash single small items. Add 1 - 2
similar items to the load to prevent an out-ofbalance load.
•• Make sure to empty all pockets. Items such as
nails, hair clips, matches, pens, coins and keys
can cause irreparable damage to both your
appliance and clothes.
•• Wash delicates (stockings, underwired bras) in
a wash net.
•• Close zippers, hooks and strings to make sure
that these items do not snag other clothes.
•• Pre-treat dirt and stains by saturating the
dirt and stains with dissolved detergent and
brushing them in order to remove dirt.
•• Do not wash or spin any item labelled or known
to be water-proof or water-resistant, even if the
product care label on the item permits machine
washing. Failure to follow these instructions
could result in severe damage to your washing
load, your appliance and/or property damage
as a result of abnormal load friction or vibration
of the appliance.

items include certain mattress pads, mattress
covers, rain gear, camping gear, skiing
apparel, outdoor gear and similar items.
