1. Press Start/Pause to stop operation.

2. Press the upper area of the Add Door until you hear a clicking sound to unlock. Pull the handle of the Add Door to open.

3. Open the Add Door and put additional laundry or softener into the drum.

5. Press Start/Pause to resume operation.

CAUTION Do not put excessive force on the Add Door. It may break.

NOTE The water inside the drum will not leak if the Add Door is closed properly. Water drops may form around the door, but they will not leak from inside the drum.


  • Do not open the Add Door if suds have formed inside the drum that rise above the level of the Add Door.
  • Do not attempt to open the Add Door while the machine is operating without first pressing Start/Pause. Please note that the Add Door can be opened unintentionally (without pressing Start/Pause) when the wash is complete.

  • Make sure that no laundry is caught in the Add Door.
  • Keep your pets out of the washing machine, especially the Add Door.
  • When using hot water for the wash, the Add Door may appear to leak water after opening and closing the Add Door. This is normal, simply because steam emerging from the open Add Door has cooled and formed water drops on the surface.
  • When the Add Door closes, the door seals up and no water can leak. However, you may encounter what appears to be water leak around the door - some residual water remaining around the Add Door may form water drops. This is normal.
  • Neither the main door or the Add Door can be opened when the water temperature is over 50 °C. If the water level inside the drum is over a certain point, the main door cannot be opened.
  • If an information code of ddC appears on the display, see the “Information codes” section for further actions.

• The function name, Smart Check, may differ depending on the language.
