Water supply

Proper water pressure for this washer is between 20-116 psi (137-800 kPa). Water pressure less than 20 psi (137 kPa) may cause the water valve not to close completely. or it may take longer to fill the drum, causing the washer to turn off. Water taps must be within 4 ft. (122 cm) from the rear of the washer so that the provided inlet hoses reach the washer.

To reduce the risk of leaks:

  • Make sure water taps are easily accessible.
  • Turn off the taps when the washer is not in use.
  • Check for any leaks at the water inlet hose fittings on a regular basis.

Drain

  • Samsung recommends a standpipe 39 in. (990 mm) high. The drain hose must be connected through the hose clip to the standpipe, and the standpipe must fully cover the drain hose.

Flooring

  • For best performance, the washer must be installed on a solid floor. Wood floors may need to be reinforced to minimize vibration and/or unbalanced loads. Carpeting and soft tile surfaces do not provide good resistance to vibrations and may cause the washer to move slightly during the spin cycle.

Step-by-step installation

STEP 1 Select a location

Location requirements:

  • A solid, level surface without carpeting or flooring that may obstruct ventilation
  • No direct sunlight
  • Adequate room for ventilation and wiring
  • Ambient temperature always higher than the freezing point (32 °F / 0 °C)
  • Away from heat sources

STEP 2 Connect the water hose

CAUTION

  • Make sure to use new water hoses and that rubber gaskets (B) are inside the couplings (A) at both ends of the hoses. Water hoses without the gaskets may leak.
  • Allow 6 in. (150 mm) of space between the back of the washer and the wall to prevent water hoses from being kinked. Kinked hoses may cause water leaks.
  • If there is a water leak, stop using the washer and contact a local Samsung service center. A water leak may cause electric shock.
  • Do not stretch the water hoses by force. If a hose is too short, replace the hose with a longer hose.

1. Attach the water hoses to the hot and cold water taps, and then hand tighten the water hose fittings until  hey are tight. Then, use pliers to tighten the fittings by an additional two-thirds of a turn. To avoid damaging the fittings, do not overtighten them.

2. Pull the water hoses to check if they are firmly connected.

3. Put the other ends of the hoses into a bucket, and then open the water taps for 10 - 15 seconds to remove impurities. When done, close the taps.

4. Attach the water hoses to the hot and cold water inlets on the back of the washer, and then hand tighten the water hose fittings until they are tight. Then, use pliers to tighten the fittings by an additional two-thirds of a turn.

5. Open the water taps, and check for leaks.

STEP 3 Connect the drain hose

To a Laundry Tub or Drain Pipe

1. Check the height (A) of your drain system and make sure the minimum and maximum heights shown below are met.

  • Minimum  39 in. (99 cm)
  • Maximum  96 in. (245 cm)

NOTE

  • Make sure to measure the height from the floor where the washer is placed.
  • Draining efficiency may be reduced if the drain system is at the maximum height.
  • To prevent the washer from siphoning water, do not use a drain system below the minimum height.

2. Attach the drain hose to the plastic hose guide (B).

3. Route the drain hose to the drain system.

(*): Min. 6 in. (152 mm), Max. 8 in. (203 mm)

4. Secure the drain hose with cable ties.

Over the edge of a wash basin

  • The drain hose must be placed no lower than 24 in. (60 cm) and no higher than 35 in. (90 cm) from the floor. To keep the spout of the drain hose bent, use the supplied plastic hose guide (A). Secure the guide to the wall using a hook to ensure stable drainage.

STEP 4 Level the washer

Leveling models without adjustable nuts A 1

1. Slide the washer into position.

2. Open the lid of the washer, and then pour the water into the tub until the blades of the pulsator on the bottom of the washer are about half covered.

3. If the washer is level, the pulsator (A) will be positioned at the center of the tub as shown in the figure and the water will appear level in the tub. That is, the water will reach the same height on all sides of the tub.

4. If the washer is not level, turn the appropriate leveling feet clockwise (B) to lower the washer, or counterclockwise (C) to raise the washer so that it is level.

5. Once you have the washer leveled, push down on all 4 corners to ensure that all 4 feet are touching the floor. If the washer rocks when you push down on a corner, adjust the leveling foot at that corner so the foot is firmly on the floor.

NOTE

  • You can also level the washer by lining a level up with the seam that runs between the top of the washer and the body of the washer and checking if the washer is level on all 4 sides.
  • See the diagram above, left. After you have checked all 4 sides and leveled the washer, perform Step 5 above.

STEP 5 Power on

  • Plug the power cord into an AC 120 V / 60 Hz / 15 AMP approved electrical outlet protected by a 15-amp fuse or circuit breaker. Then, press Power to turn on the washer.

STEP 6 Run a test cycle

Run a test cycle as follows to check if your washer is properly installed.

  • Load about 6 lb. of laundry into the tub.
  • Press Power to turn on your washer.
  • Turn the Cycle Selector to RINSE+SPIN.
  • Press and hold Start/Pause (Hold to Start) to start the test cycle.
  • The washer should not rock or vibrate excessively when water is supplied or when washing and spinning, and should drain well during the spin cycle.

NOTE

  • If water leaks while water is being supplied or drained, check the water connections. See “STEP 2 Connect the water hose” on page 19.
  • If the washer rocks and vibrates excessively, level your washer again. See “STEP 4 Level the washer” on page 23.

Before you start

Initial settings

Run calibration (recommended)

Calibration ensures accurate weight detection by the washer. Make sure the tub is empty before running calibration.

  • Press Power to turn on the washer.
  • Press and hold Temp. and Delay End simultaneously for 3 seconds.
  • Press and hold Start/Pause (Hold to Start) to start calibration. The tub rotates clockwise or counterclockwise for approximately 2 minutes.
  • When complete, “0” appears on the display, and the washer turns off automatically.

Laundry guidelines

STEP 1 Sort

Sort the laundry according to these criteria:

  • Care label: sort the laundry into cottons, mixed fibers, synthetics, silks, wools, and rayon.
  • Color: Separate whites from colors.
  • Size: Mixing different sized items together in the tub improves washing performance.
  • Sensitivity: Wash delicate items separately. For pure new woolen items, curtains, and silk items, check the labels on the items.

STEP 2 Empty pockets

Empty all the pockets of your laundry items

  • Metal objects such as coins, pins, and buckles on clothing may damage other laundry items as well as the tub.

Turn clothing with buttons and embroideries inside out

  • If pants or jacket zippers are open while washing, the tub may be damaged. Zippers should be closed and fixed with a string.
  • Clothing with long strings may become entangled with other clothes. Make sure to tie the strings before starting the wash.

STEP 3 Use a laundry net

  • Brassieres (water washable) must be placed in a laundry net. Metal parts of the brassieres may break through and tear other laundry items.
  • Cashmilon, large volume items, and lightweight clothes (lace-decorated clothes, lingerie, nylon stockings, and synthetic fabrics) may float during washing and not wash properly. Use the laundry net or wash them separately.
  • Do not wash the laundry net by itself without other laundry. This can cause abnormal vibrations that could cause the washer to move and result in injury.

CAUTION

Make sure to soak inflatable items (such as blankets, and cotton-filled or microfiber quilts) in water before you run a cycle.

  • Inflatable items may damage the laundry or the washer during the washing or spinning process.
  • Regardless of the size, it is safer to wash blankets or quilts one item at a time. This will also get them cleaner. Two different-sized blankets in the same load can cause the load to become unbalanced, compromising the spinning process.

To put a blanket in your washer

Fold the blanket as shown, and then put it below the plastic ring (A) at the top of the tub.

STEP 4 Prewash (if necessary)

  • To remove stains and dirt on collars, sleeves, hems, and pockets, apply detergent lightly, let sit for a minute, and then brush off carefully.
  • Use powder or liquid detergents. Do not use soap. Soap can remain on the tub after washing.
  • To prewash white socks, sleeves, and collars apply a little detergent, and then brush carefully.

STEP 5 Determine the load capacity

  • Make sure the laundry does not extend past the plastic ring at the top of the tub. If it does, it can cause the washing machine to wash improperly or cause damage to the washer or the laundry itself or cause a water leak.

NOTE

  • When washing bedding or bedding covers, the wash time may be lengthened or the spin efficiency may be reduced.
  • For bedding or bedding covers, the recommended load capacity is 7.5 lb (3.5 kg) or less.

CAUTION

  • If the laundry is unbalanced and the “UB” information code is displayed, redistribute the load. Unbalanced laundry can reduce spinning performance.

STEP 6 Add the correct detergent type

  • The type of detergent you use - general purpose, specifically for woolens, etc. - depends on the type of fabric (cotton, synthetic, delicate items, wool), color, wash temperature, and degree of soiling. Regardless of the specific type of detergent you use, always use “low suds” HE laundry detergent which is designed for automatic washers.

NOTE

  • Follow the detergent manufacturer’s recommendations based on the weight of the laundry, the degree of soiling, and the hardness of the water in your local area. If you are not sure about the water hardness, contact your local water authority.
  • Do not use detergent that tends to harden or solidify. This detergent may remain in the washer after the rinse cycle, blocking the drain outlet.

Detergent drawer guidelines

The washer provides a two-compartment dispenser for detergent and fabric softener. The bleach compartment is located on the left side of the tub.

A. Softener compartment: Add a recommended amount of fabric softener into the softener compartment.

B. Detergent compartment: Apply a recommended amount of liquid detergent into the compartment. To use a powdered detergent, remove the liquid detergent container. The washer does not dispense the powdered detergent from the liquid detergent container.

C. Bleach compartment: Add bleach as instructed by the manufacturer.

NOTE

  • Do not pour color-safe bleach into the bleach compartment.
  • Use the softener compartment only for liquid fabric softeners.
