Washing Machine: Maintenance Tips
Some of the most common washing machine problems, such as draining issues, can be prevented by regular maintenance. Fortunately, basic washing machine maintenance doesn’t require expert knowledge or a lot of time. The below tips will help keep your machine running smoothly.
Eco Drum Clean is an eco-friendly cleaning cycle designed to remove detergent residue and build up. The Eco Drum Clean cycle should be run every forty washes. To use the Eco Drum Cycle, press the Power button, turn the cycle selector to 'Eco Drum Clean', then press the Start/Pause button.
STEPS (FRONT LOAD WASHING MACHINE):
● You can only use the Delay End function.
● The water temperature during the ECO Drum Clean is set to 70 ˚C.
● You cannot change the temperature.
● Be sure to use the recommended cleansing agent for cleaning the drum.
● There are powder-type and liquid-type drum cleansing agents. The liquid-type cleaning agent is only available with liquid detergent box (option).
● If you press the Start/Pause button, the ECO Drum Clean course begins.
● Using the ECO Drum Clean course, you can clean the drum without using a cleansing agent.
● Never use the ECO Drum Clean course when laundry is in the washing machine. This may result in damage to the texture or a problem with the washing machine.
● In the ECO Drum Clean course, never use normal detergent.
● Use only 1/10 of the amount of the drum cleansing agent recommended by the cleansing agent manufacturer.
● Since using a chlorine bleaching agent may discolour the product, be sure to use only oxygen bleaching agents.
● Powder-type cleansing agent: Use a [powder-type bleaching agent] or a [cleansing agent for drum cleaning only].
● Liquid-type cleansing agent: Use a [liquid-type oxygen bleaching agent] or a [cleansing agent for drum cleaning only].
The ECO Drum Clean Auto Alarm Function
● If the “ECO Drum Clean” indicator on the display and the lamp on the Cycle Selector are lit after a wash, it indicates that tub (drum) cleaning is required. In this case, remove the laundry from the washing machine, turn the power on, and clean the drum by performing the ECO Drum Clean course.
● If you do not perform the ECO Drum Clean course, the “ECO Drum Clean” indicator on the display and the lamp on the Cycle Selector are turned off. However, the “ECO Drum Clean” indicator on the display and the lamp on the Cycle Selector are turned on again after two washes are performed. However, this will not result in a problem with the washing machine.
● Although generally, the ECO Drum Clean Auto Alarm appears once a month or so, the frequency may differ depending on the number of times the washing machine is used.

Clogged filters can lead to drainage and water problems. These will show on your machine as 4E/4C and 5E/5C errors. We recommend cleaning your mesh filter at least once or twice a year, and cleaning your debris filter five or six times a year.
Front Load: Cleaning the debris filter
If you separate the filter without draining the remaining water, the remaining water may trickle out.
● If foreign substances accumulate debris filter, the performance of the bubble function will be degraded.
Caution : Before cleaning the debris filter, make sure to unplug the power cord.
Caution : Do not open the debris filter cap while the machine is running or hot water may flow out.
● Make sure to replace the filter cap after the filter cleaning. If the filter is out of the machine, your washing machine may malfunction or leak water.
● The filter should be fully assembled after the filter cleaning.

● Push the upper part of the magic filter and pull in.
● Open the cover as shown in the figure.
● Clean the magic filter.

Leaving damp clothes in the drum for long periods increases moisture and mould build-up. Leave the door slightly opened for fifteen to twenty minutes after the wash to allow air to circulate.
Check your pockets for foreign objects such as hair clips or coins before adding washing to the machine.
You should also check the door seal of your machine regularly for foreign objects or to check for stains.
Use a fine laundry net for small items such as socks or gloves as they may become caught around the door, and for machine-washable bras as the metal parts of the bra may break through the material and damage your laundry or machine.
Overloading the machine may stop your laundry from washing properly, unbalance the machine (UE error), and reduce spin efficiency.
Take particular care when washing heavier or bulkier items such as towels or bedding.
A full load of laundry is when the drum is two thirds full. There needs to be adequate space in the drum for the water and for the laundry to move around.
Loading the machine incorrectly may lead to balancing or spinning issues.
Ensure your machine is kept level, as this will reduce vibration and noise.
