the drain hose should not extend more than 20 mm from the end of the guide.

the height of the standpipe or tub should be between 850 – 1200 mm.

  • Possible Cause The washing machine has been overloaded.
    Solution Reduce the size of the load and return the garments to the wash cycle.

  • Possible Cause Cold water has been used for a hot water detergent.
    Solution Some detergents may not dissolve properly in cold water, check the detergents instructions.

A small puddle of water is coming from under the machine

  • Possible Cause Excessive splashing has occurred because the water level is too high for the amount of garments
    Solution Manually select a lower water level
  • Possible Cause Excessive splashing has occurred because there are large bulky garments in the machine.
    Solution Wash on the Duvet/Doona, the Handwash or Delicate cycles

The garments are still soiled after the wash process

  • Possible Cause There is not enough detergent for the size of the load or the amount of soil on the garments.
    Solution Increase the amount of detergent. See your detergent pack for recommended usage.

    Solution Reduce the amount of garments in the machine.
  • Possible Cause The incorrect wash settings have been used.
    Solution Increase the level selected on the machine and the wash temperature according to the soil type. For example, blood and mud are better washed in cold water, while oily soils wash better in warmer water. Separate light and heavily soiled items, as clothes can pick up soil from dirty wash water. Loads made up of articles of varying sizes will wash better (e.g. full loads of sheets may not wash as well).

Garments have become tangled in the washing machine

  • Possible Cause The machine has used too much water (i.e. the wash has been under-loaded).
    Solution Select a lower water level for smaller wash loads.
  • Possible Cause Garments have been loaded incorrectly.
    Solution Load garments into the machine without wrapping around the agitator.
