When the washer is contaminated by a foreign substance such as detergent, dirt, food waste, etc., unplug the power plug and clean the washer using a damp and soft cloth.

- Failure to do so may result in discoloration, deformation, damage or rust.

The front glass may be broken by a strong impact. Take care when using the washer. - When the glass is broken, it may result in injury.

After a water supply failure or when reconnecting the water supply hose, open the faucet slowly.

Open the faucet slowly after a long period of non-use.

-The air pressure in the water supply hose or the water pipe may result in damage to a part or in water leakage.

If a drain error occurs during an operation, check if there is a draining problem.

-If the washer is used when it is flooded because of a draining problem, it may result in electric shock or fire due to electric leakage.

Insert the laundry into the washer completely so that laundry does not get caught in the door.

-If laundry gets caught in the door, it may result in damage to the laundry or the washer, or result in water leakage.

Ensure that the faucet is turned off when the washer is not being used.

-Ensure that the screw on the water supply hose connector is properly tightened.

-Failure to do so may result in property damage or injury.

Check if the rubber seal is not contaminated by foreign substances (waste, thread, etc). - If the door is not closed completely, it may result in water leakage.

Open the faucet and check if the water supply hose connector is firmly tightened and that there is no water leaking before using the product.

-If the screws or the water supply hose connector are loose, it may result in water leakage.

To reduce the risk of fire or explosion:

-Under certain conditions, hydrogen gas may be produced in a hot water system such as your hot water heater that has not been used for two weeks or more. HYDROGEN GAS IS EXPLOSIVE. If your hot water system has not been used for two weeks or more, turn on all hot water taps in your home, and let the water flow for several minutes before using your washing machine. This will release any hydrogen gas build–up. Since hydrogen gas is flammable, do not smoke or light an open flame during this time. Ventilate immediately without touching the power plug if there is a gas leak.
