* Total program times differ and depend on the weight of the wash load and water level.

** When the water level of the Normal program is set to 8, the program has a default setting of 90L of warm water; all other programs have cold water as a default (water temperature is adjustable, see page 21).

Detergent and load recommendations

• We suggest you use detergent in the amounts recommended below. Too little will give poor washing results, but too much will affect rinse performance and may cause overflow of suds, which could interfere with machine operation.

CAUTION: Do not overfill detergent.

• Add detergent into the detergent box or put it directly into the tub (see p. 20).

• Dilute fabric softener with a little water and carefully add it to the softener dispenser on the balance ring for dispersion through the final rinse.

Instructions (Cont.)

Preset timer (delayed washing)

This washing machine has a 0 – 24 hour preset function, which you can set to determine the time when the washing program will finish. (It is, in effect, similar to a

‘delayed start’ function, but you set the time period after which you want the wash to finish rather than to start.)

NOTES: * The Preset function is not available for the Delicate program.

* To avoid water leakage when using this function, make sure the water taps are open, the drain hose is properly installed and the washing load and detergent are properly prepared.

1. Put your washing in the machine, loading items uniformly in the tub.

2. Press the Power button.

3. Select the required Program and process, and any other Water Level, Temperature and Ultrasonic , if required.

4. Press the Preset button to select the desired time period (in hours) for the wash to finish.

5. Select the water level, if necessary.

6. Add any detergents (see below and page 17 for details).

7. Close the washer lid and press the Start/Pause button.

8. After setting the Preset , the corresponding light will illuminate and all other lights will be switched off about one minute later. (If you set the child lock, the Child

Lock light will be on.)

9. To check the preset program, press any button (except for the Power button); the program will be indicated for 5 seconds. During these 5 seconds you can press the

Water Level button and set the water level.

10. To cancel the preset, shut off the power.

11. To change the preset time, first cancel the preset, then set it again.

Adding detergent to a preset wash

When using the delayed wash, we recommend you use powder detergent. Do not add detergent directly to the wash tub ahead of the wash time, but follow the instructions below:

• Washing detergent: either put detergent into the detergent box or, if you prefer to put it directly into the wash tub, wrap the powder in a small cloth.

• Fabric softener: dilute the softener with twice the amount of water, then pour the solution into the softener dispenser.

For certain wash programs, the machine automatically detects the weight of your wash load and selects the appropriate wash cycle processes.

• For the Normal and Heavy Duty programs, the machine will automatically select the correct water power and level, wash and spin time, and rinse type.

• For the Custom and Wool programs, the machine will automatically select the correct water level. Other wash cycle processes have to be manually set.

Ultrasonic function

This top load washing machine is equipped with an ultrasonic pump, which generates thousands of vibrations per second into the wash tub. These vibrations help remove stains and dirt without chemical stain removers, thus reducing the required detergent amount and wash time.

To select this feature, press and hold the Preset/Ultrasonic button for four seconds until the corresponding light comes on and a buzzer sounds. Repeat the steps to cancel. When selecting the Ultrasonic wash, please use less detergent than usual.

Memory function

When you run the Normal , Custom or Heavy Duty program, the machine memorises your settings (except for preset time and water level) for the next time you select it.

NOTE: This function is not available for the Wool, Blanket and Delicate programs.

Child lock

With the child lock activated, the machine will stop working automatically and sound an alarm if the washer lid is opened for 4 seconds. To set the child lock:

• Press the Power button to switch on the power, then press and hold the Program button for 4 seconds until a buzzer sounds. The child lock will be activated when the Start/Pause button is pressed. Repeat the steps to cancel.

Start of washing

Washing will start when the water inside the tub has reached two levels below the set level while the water will continue to flow in (see page 17 for the eight water levels).

This early start of washing will increase the wash time and allow the detergent to dissolve fully before the start of the set wash time. This function will be ineffective:

• When water level 1 (28L) or 2 (35L) is selected.

• When the Delicate or Blanket program is selected.

• When Soak is selected, after the soaking process.

FAQs and Troubleshooting

Not all unusual incidents you may encounter with your washing machine are faults, or cause for concern. Check in the list below what issues may arise and why. Also check in the table on the following page for solutions to other common problems.

• The drain hose is leaking water during the first use. Does this indicate there is a problem?

No, this is normal; it is residual water from the performance test in the factory and no cause for concern.

• Why is there still some water intake during the wash or rinse cycle?

When the water level is low, the washing machine will automatically refill during the washing or rinsing process. This is no cause for concern.

• At the beginning of the spin cycle, why is the tub turning first and then stopping?

This is intermittent spinning and it results in better spinning performance.

• During the spin cycle, why is the machine spinning and then stopping suddenly and taking in water again?

If the washing is piled up at one side of the tub during the spin cycle, the washing machine automatically takes in more water to redistribute the load. Once the load is balanced again, the spin cycle will continue.

• Why is there a sound like water flowing after spinning?

This is the sound of the balancing liquid in the balance ring. This helps reduce vibration during spinning.

• Why is the control panel still warm after the power is switched off?

This is caused by the memory circuitry still working.

• The washer does not work at all. What could I have done wrong?

• Check and ensure that the washer is connected properly to the power supply and power is switched on at the outlet.

• If both are OK, first press the Power button, then press the Start/Pause button and then press the Preset button.

• If the machine still does not start the set program, check elsewhere in your home whether there has been a power failure, or whether the fuse or circuit breaker has been activated.

If none of the solutions offered above and on the following page help you solve the problem, contact our after sales support centre for advice.

Other Useful Information

Cleaning and care

To prolong the service life of the washing machine, keep it in good condition and perform regular maintenance. For any type of cleaning and maintenance, make sure the washing machine is disconnected from the mains power supply.

Cleaning the washing machine

(when required)

• Use a soft cloth to wipe any water or dirt off the washer lid and housing. If using a damp cloth, squeeze it almost dry to avoid leaving water residues.

• The detergent box may be pulled out for cleaning, if required. Other inside parts should be wiped with a damp cloth, if necessary.

• Do not use any chemical, alkaline or abrasive cleaning agents to avoid damaging the surface. Do not spray water directly onto the washer housing.

IMPORTANT!

If you frequently use a COLD wash cycle, you will need to clean the inside of your washing machine regularly (every three months), especially if you use a fabric softener. Liquid detergents can cause detergent scum to build up around the outside of the inner tub, which cold water will not remove and which can cause bacteria, unpleasant odours, and eventually soiling of your wash load.

To remove scum build-up from the inside of a washing machine, run a cleaning cycle without clothes using the Heavy Duty program and hot water.

As a cleaning agent, use a commercially available washing machine cleaning product (such as Trimat Washing Machine Cleaner ) according to the instructions on the product), or use a mix of bicarbonate of soda (½ cup) and white household vinegar (2 cups).

Other Useful Information (Cont.)

Cleaning the lint filter

( suggested interval: every week)

Take out the lint filter as illustrated below. Open the filter and rinse it clean under running water, taking care not the damage any parts. Reinstall the filter, making sure it fits securely behind the cover clasp and latches and locks securely into place.

Cleaning the water inlet valve

(suggested interval: every 6 months)

To avoid blockage of the mesh filter at the water inlet after long time use, detach the water inlet hose, making sure you have turned off the water supply at the taps beforehand. Take the mesh filter out of the water inlet valve and clean the filter with a soft brush. Then assemble the mesh filter back into the valve and reconnect the water inlet hose.

Cleaning the hose filter

(suggested interval: every 6 months)

To avoid blockage of the hose filter after long time use, detach the water inlet hose, making sure you have turned off the water supply at the taps beforehand. Turn the nut anticlockwise to take off the hose, clean the filter under running water or with a soft brush, then reconnect the hose.

Drain pump maintenance

We recommend that you clean the drain pump filter regularly (at least once a month) to avoid blockages created by bobby pins, coins and excess lint.

Proceed as follows:

1. Disconnect the washer from the power source.

2. If necessary, wait until the water has cooled down.

3. Place a container underneath the pump opening to collect any spillage (see below, left).

4. Turn the filter cap anticlockwise to take it out gently (see below, right). Always keep a rag nearby to dry up water spillage when removing the pump filter.

5. To remove any objects from the filter, wash it thoroughly in a basin or under running water (see below, left).

6. Put the cap back and place the filter back in its seat (see below, right).
