Important Safety Information

READ AND FOLLOW ALL SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS

FOR YOUR SAFETY: Read these instructions carefully before operating the unit.

SAFETY PRECAUTIONS

Read all instructions before using the portable washer.

Do not wash articles that have been previously cleaned in, washed in, soaked in, or spotted with gasoline, dry-cleaning solvents, or other flammable or explosive substances, as they give off vapours that could ignite or explode.

Do not add gasoline, dry-cleaning solvents, or other flammable or explosive substances to the wash water. These substances give off vapours that could ignite or explode.

Under certain conditions, hydrogen gas may be produced in a hot-water system that has not been used for 2 weeks or more. HYDROGEN GAS

IS EXPLOSIVE. If the hot-water system has not been used for such a period, before using a washing machine, turn on all hot-water faucets and let water flow from each for several minutes. This will release any accumulated hydrogen gas. As the gas is flammable, do not smoke or use an open flame during this time.

DANGER

Risk of child entrapment. Child entrapment and suffocation are not problems of the past. Junked or abandoned appliances are still dangerous . . . even if they will “just sit in the garage a few days.”

Before you throw away your old portable washer: Take off the lid.

Never allow children to operate, play with, or crawl inside the portable washer. Close supervision of children is necessary when the washer is used near children.

Do not reach into the washer if the agitator or inner tub is moving.

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 in published user-repair instructions.

Never clean portable washer parts with flammable fluids. The fumes can create a fire hazard or explosion.

Do not place the washer in steamy rooms or where the washer is directly exposed to rain. Moisture may destroy the electrical insulation causing an electrical shock hazard.

Do not store, use gasoline, or any other flammable vapors and liquids in the vicinity of this or any other portable washer. The fumes can create a fire hazard or explosion.

If the power cord is damaged, it must be replaced by the manufacturer or it’s service agent or a similar qualified person in order to avoid a hazard.

Before you install the portable washer, select a location with the following characteristics:

A hard level surface (if the surface is uneven, see Adjusting The Adjustable Foot).

Away from direct sunlight. Direct sunlight may affect the acrylic coating, plastic and electrical components.

Adequate ventilation.

Away from sources of heat such as coal or gas. Make sure that the washing machine does not stand on its power cord. Ventilation openings must not be obstructed by carpeting when the portable washer is installed on a carpeted floor.

860mm

550mm 545mm

If the floor is uneven adjust the adjustable foot (do not insert pieces of wood, or any other objects under the feet).

Loosen the adjustable foot by turning the level adjustable knob with your hand until it is at the desired height.

Tighten the adjustable foot by turning the level adjustable knob in the reverse direction.

Place the washer on a sturdy flat surface.

If the washer is placed on an uneven or weak surface, noise or vibration occurs (Allowable is 1° ).

For portable applications, the washing machine comes equipped with four north/south casters that can easily be installed to assist in the movement of the machine to and from the sink. Lay the unit on its back. Install the casters into the bottom of the base as depicted.

Return the machine to the upright position. When the machine is positioned for operation set the height of the adjustment foot slightly higher than the front caster to prevent movement of the machine during wash and spin operation.

NOTE: Not all movement will be totally eliminated, this is normal.

GROUNDING

PRONG

IMPORTANT

Improper use of the grounded plug can result in the risk of electrical shock. If the power cord is damaged, have it replaced by an authorized service technician.

This portable washer should be properly grounded for your safety. The power cord of this portable washer is equipped with a three-prong plug which mates with standard three prong wall outlets to minimize the possibility of electrical shock.

Do not under any circumstances cut or remove the third ground prong from the power cord supplied.

This portable washer requires a standard 120 Volts~./60Hz electrical outlet with three-prong ground.

To prevent injury the cord should be secured behind the portable washer and not left exposed or dangling.

Never unplug the portable washer by pulling the power cord. Always grip the plug firmly and pull straight out from the receptacle.

Do not use an extension cord with this appliance. If the power cord is too short, have a qualified electrician or service technician install an outlet near the appliance.

Operating Instructions

BEFORE WASHING

OPERATING

Prepare the wash load. Mix large and small articles in a load to get the best washing results. Drop articles loosely into the inner tub. Do not pack articles in or wrap them. Articles should move freely through the wash water for best cleaning results. Articles should rollover, sink and then reappear.

When washing very large articles, do not fill inner tub as full as with other loads. The water level in your washer should fit the size of your wash load. Small load will use lower water levels. There must be enough water in the inner tub to allow articles to move and turn over freely. Overloading the inner tub can result in poor washing and rinsing. Overloading may also cause wrinkling and tearing of articles.

IMPORTANT: A single cold hose system does not allow the washing machine to automatically (select) regulate incoming water temperatures to match those listed on the control panel such as WARM or HOT.

Press down the program select button.

Choose the appropriate program mode according to wash load quantity and then the corresponding indicator blink.

Press down the function select button.

Choose the desired function group and then the corresponding indicator will blink.

Press down the Start/Pause button once and the machine will begin operation.
