5 Important safety instructions To reduce the risk of fire, electric shock, or injury to persons when using the washer, follow basic precautions, including the following: WARNING • Before installation, check exterior damages. If it has, do not install. • Do not install or store the washer where it will be exposed to the weather. • Do not tamper with controls. • Do not repair or replace any part of the washer or attempt any servicing unless specifically recommended in the user-maintenance instructions or published user-repair instructions that you understand and have the skills to carry out. • Keep the area underneath and around your appliances free of combustible materials such as lint, paper, rags, chemicals, etc. • The appliance is not intended for use by young children or infirm persons without supervision. Do not allow children to play on, with, or inside this or any other appliance. • Keep small animals away from the appliance. • Do not leave the washer door open. An open door could entice children to hang on the door or crawl inside the washer. • Never reach into washer while it is moving. Wait until the drum has completely stopped. • The laundry process can reduce the flame retardant of fabrics. To avoid such a result, carefully follow the garment manufacturer’s wash and care instructions. • Do not wash or dry articles that have been cleaned in, washed in, soaked in, or spotted with combustible or explosive substances (such as wax, oil, paint, gasoline, degreasers, dry- cleaning solvents, kerosene, etc.) which may ignite or explode. Oil may remain in the tub after a whole cycle resulting in fire during drying. So, do not load oiled clothes. • Do not slam the washer door closed or try to force the door open when locked. This could result in damage to the washer. • When the machine runs high temperature, the front door may be very hot. Don’t touch it. • To minimize the possibility of electric shock, unplug this appliance from the power supply or disconnect the washer at the household distribution panel by removing the fuse or switching off the circuit breaker before attempting any maintenance or cleaning. • When unplugging power cord, do not pull out by grasping the cord. Otherwise, the power cord may be damaged. • Never attempt to operate this appliance if it is damaged, malfunctioning, partially disassembled, or has missing or broken parts, including a damaged cord or plug. ■ Basic safety precautions
6 Important safety instructions ■ Basic safety precautions To reduce the risk of fire, electric shock, or injury to persons when using the washer, follow basic precautions, including the following: WARNING • Before discarding an old machine unplug it. Render the plug useless. Cut off the cable directly behind the appliance to prevent misuse. • When a product was under water, Please call service center. There is a risk of electric shock and fire. • Appliance connected to the water mains using new hose-sets. Old hose- sets should not be reused. • To reduce the risk of personal injury, adhere to all industry recommended safety procedures including the use of long sleeved gloves and safety glasses. Failure to follow all of the safety warnings in this manual could result in property, personal injury or death. • Do not push down the door excessively, when washer door open. This could topple over the washer. ■ Save these instructions Improper connection of the equipment-grounding conductor can result in electric shock. Check with a qualified electrician or serviceman if you are in doubt as to whether the appliance is properly grounded. Do not modify the plug provided with the appliance - if it does not fit the outlet, have a proper outlet installed by a qualified electrician. GROUNDING INSTRUCTIONS 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 cord having an equipment-grounding conductor and grounding plug. The plug must be plugged into an appropriate outlet that is properly installed and grounded in accordance with all local codes and ordinance. • Do not use an adapter this will defeat the grounding plug. • If you don’t have the proper outlet, consult an electrician. WARNING
7 Important safety instructions To minimize the risk of fire within the inner bowl, the following should be observed: • Items that have been spotted or soaked with vegetable or cooking oil constitute a fire hazard and should not be placed in a tumble dryer. Oil-affected items can ignite spontaneously, especially when exposed to heat sources such as in a tumble dryer. The items become warm, causing an oxidation reaction in the oil. Oxidation creates heat. If the heat cannot escape, the items can become hot enough to catch fire. Piling, stacking or storing oil-affected items can prevent heat from escaping and so create a fire hazard. If it is unavoidable that fabrics that contain vegetable or cooking oil or have been contaminated by hair care products be placed in a tumble dryer they should first be washed in hot water with extra detergent-this will reduce, but not eliminate, the hazard. The ‘cool down’ cycle of tumble dryers should be used to reduce the temperature of the items. They should not be removed from the tumble dryer or piled or stacked while hot. • Items that have been previously cleaned in, washed in, soaked in or spotted with petrol/gasoline, dry- cleaning solvents or other flammable or explosive substances should not be placed in a tumble dryer. Highly flammable substances commonly used in domestic environments include acetone, denatured alcohol, petrol/gasoline, kerosene, spot removers (some brands), turpentine, waxes and wax removers. • Items containing foam rubber (also known as latex foam) or similarly textured rubber like materials should not be dried in a tumble dryer on a heat setting. Foam rubber materials can, when heated, produce fire by spontaneous combustion. • Fabric softeners or similar products should not be used during a drying cycle, to eliminate the effects of static electricity unless this practice is specifically recommended by the manufacturer of the fabric softener or product. • Undergarments that contain metal reinforcements should not be placed in a tumble dryer. Damage to the tumble dryer can result if metal reinforcements come loose during drying. When available a drying rack could be used for such items. • Plastic articles such as shower caps or babies waterproof napkin covers should not be placed in a tumble dryer. • Rubber-backed articles, clothes fitted with foam rubber pads, pillows, rubber boots and rubber-coated tennis shoes should not be placed in a tumble dryer. ■ Safety instructions for use
