- Every portable washing machine has a detergent dispenser. Pull it out and pour half a measuring beaker of detergent in the dispenser. Since this is just a tub cleaning procedure, do not use any type of special detergent that creates a lot of foam.
- Approximately one liter of water should be filled in the washing chamber.
- Now close the detergent dispenser.
- Select the program you want to set and start the machine.
- Once the washing procedure is completed you may turn off the machine.

Time to load the machine
You are eager to wash all the dumped clothes lying since a week, right? Let’s get started.
Now many washing machines have varieties of options like fuzzy, wool, quick wash, jeans, etc. that helps you get the clothes washed in the right way. So, if you have different types of clothes then you can always choose the fuzzy option to get everything washed in the best way. Simply dump in the clothes one-by-one in the chamber. If you have hand-knit clothes then ensure to place it inside out. Attach the water outlet to the tap and turn it on. Close the door properly and switch on the power mode. Select the program you wish to and press the start button.
If you have a fully automatic washing machine then you really don’t need to bother yourself much. All you have to do is sit back and relax until your clothes come out clean, fresh and dry!
Note- Never overload your machine with excess clothes. It will not only depreciate your machine, but also show minor glitches.
Want to cancel a program?
If the program has not started yet, you may easily cancel it by pressing the Start/Cancel/Pause button for 3 seconds. You will soon see the LED of the selected program is on. This will enable you to set a new program.
If the program has already started and you want to cancel it then the procedure is quite similar to the previous one. Simply press the Start/Pause/Cancel button for 3 seconds. You will see that the program will automatically move to the spin section. The machine will soon start pumping in order to drain the water. Now the door can be opened once you see the door LED on.
