Getting started quickly — QuickSmart washer

Failure to follow the advice in this guide may result in damage to your garments, and your expectations of wash performance may not be met.

Before you start

  • It is important to sort your clothes, particularly separating white/light colours from dark colours, as well as separating out sheets and towels. (refer to the ‘Sorting and Loading’ sections).
  • Wash new, highly coloured and dark coloured items separately to prevent dye transfer onto other items.
  • Sort lint givers and lint collectors (refer to the ‘Sorting’ section).
  • Close bra clasps, do up zippers and check pockets.
  • Place your clothes directly into the wash bowl.
  • Place the load evenly around the agitator (refer to ‘Sorting and Loading’).
  • Remove fabric softener dispenser cup.

 

Detergent

  • Follow the manufacturer’s instructions on the detergent package.
  • Use the size of the load as a guide to the amount of detergent to use (refer to the ‘Detergent’ section).
  • Pour the detergent down the centre of the agitator stem.
  • Replace the fabric softener dispenser cup (this stops small articles falling down the centre of the agitator).

 

Fabric softener

If you wish to use fabric softener, place it in the fabric softener dispenser cup on the top of the agitator (refer to the ‘Fabric softener’ section).
