Tips for environmental protection
To save water, energy and to help protect the
environment, we recommend that you follow these tips:
• With adequate pre-treatment, stains and limited soiling
can be removed; the laundry can then be washed at a
lower temperature.
• Normally soiled laundry may be washed without
prewashing in order to save detergent, water and time
(the environment is protected too!).
• Measure out detergent according to the water
hardness, the degree of soiling and the quantity of
laundry being washed.
• The machine works more economically if it is fully
loaded.

Sorting the laundry
Removing stains
Follow the wash code symbols on each garment label
and the manufacturer’s washing instructions.
Sort the laundry as follows:
whites, coloureds, synthetics, delicates, woollens.
Stubborn stains may not be removed by just water and
detergent. It is therefore advisable to treat them prior to
washing.
Blood: treat fresh stains with cold water. For dried
stains, soak overnight in water with a special detergent
then rub in the soap and water.
Oil based paint: moisten with benzine stain remover, lay
the garment on a soft cloth and dab the stain; treat
several times.
Dried grease stains: moisten with turpentine, lay the
garment on a soft surface and dab the stain with the
fingertips and a cotton cloth.
Rust: oxalic acid dissolved in hot water or a rust
removing product used cold. Be careful with rust stains
which are not recent since the cellulose structure will
already have been damaged and the fabric tends to
hole.
Mould stains: treat with bleach, rinse well (whites and
fast coloureds only).
Grass: soap lightly and treat with bleach (whites and fast
coloureds only).
Ball point pen and glue: moisten with acetone (*), lay
the garment on a soft cloth and dab the stain.
Lipstick: moisten with acetone as above, then treat
stains with methylated spirits. Remove any residual
marks from white fabrics with bleach.
Red wine: soak in water and detergent, rinse and treat
with acetic or citric acid, then rinse. Treat any residual
marks with bleach.
Ink: depending on the type of ink, moisten the fabric first
with acetone (*), then with acetic acid; treat any residual
marks on white fabrics with bleach and then rinse
thoroughly.
Tar stains: first treat with stain remover, methylated
spirits or benzine, then rub with detergent paste.
(*) do not use acetone on artificial silk.
Temperatures
90°
for normally soiled white cottons and linen
(e.g. tea cloths, towels, tablecloths, sheets...)
60°
for normally soiled, colour fast garments (e.g.
shirts, night dresses, pyjamas....) in linen,
cotton or synthetic fibres and for lightly soiled
white cotton (e.g. underwear).
(cold)for delicate items (e.g. net curtains), mixed
30°-40° laundry including synthetic fibres and
woollens.
Before loading the laundry
Never wash whites and coloureds together. Whites may
lose their “whiteness” in the wash.
New coloured items may run in the first wash; they
should therefore be washed separately the first time.
Make sure that no metal objects are left in the
laundry (e.g. hair clips, safety pins, pins).
Button up pillowcases, close zip fasteners, hooks and
poppers. Tie any belts or long tapes.
Remove persistent stains before washing. Rub
particularly soiled areas with a special detergent or
detergent paste.
Treat curtains with special care. Remove hooks or tie
them up in a bag or net.
Maximum loads
Recommended loads are indicated in the programme
charts.
General rules:
Cotton, linen: drum full but not too tightly packed;
Synthetics: drum no more than half full;
Delicate fabrics and woollens: drum no more than one
third full.
Washing a maximum load makes the most efficient use
of water and energy.
For heavily soiled laundry, reduce the load size.
Detergents and additives
Good washing results also depend on the choice of
detergent and use of the correct quantities to avoid
waste and protect the environment. Although
biodegradable, detergents contain substances which, in
large quantities, can upset the delicate balance of
nature.
The choice of detergent will depend on the type of fabric
(delicates, woollens, cottons, etc.), the colour, washing
temperature and degree of soiling.
All commonly available washing machine detergents
may be used in this appliance:
– powder detergents for all types of fabric,
– powder detergents for delicate fabrics (60°C max) and
woollens,
– liquid detergents, preferably for low temperature wash
programmes (60°C max) for all types of fabric, or
special for woollens only.

Washing hints
Quantity of detergent to be used
The detergent and any additives must be placed in the
appropriate compartments of the dispenser drawer
before starting the wash programme.
If using concentrated powder or liquid detergents, a
programme without prewash must be selected.
The washing machine incorporates a recirculation
system which allows an optimal use of the concentrated
detergent.
Pour liquid detergent into the dispenser drawer
compartment marked
just before starting the
programme.
Any fabric softener or starching additives must be
poured into the compartment marked
before starting
the wash programme.
Follow the product manufacturer’s recommendations on
quantities to use and do not exceed the «MAX» mark
in the detergent dispenser drawer.
The type and quantity of detergent will depend on the
type of fabric, load size, degree of soiling and hardness
of the water used.
Follow the product manufacturers’ instructions on
quantities to use.
Use less detergent if:
– you are washing a small load,
– the laundry is lightly soiled,
– large amounts of foam form during washing.

Place the discharging hose in a washbasin or sink
with the aid of the bent piece delivered separately. The
bent piece has to be entered into the tube’s mouth in
order to assure the support. Aforesaid piece allows
the hose to be fixed to the wall by means of an
opening on the upper part and that way the hose does
not move and its falling is avoided.
Connect the water inlet hose to a tap with a 3/4"
thread.
Do not use already employed employed hoses.
The other end of the inlet hose which connects to the
machine can be turned in any direction. Simply
loosen the fitting, rotate the hose and retighten the
fitting, making sure there are no water leaks
P0022
AL013
P0021
The inlet hose must not be lengthened. If it is too
short and you do not wish to move the tap, you will
have to purchase a new, longer hose specially
designed for this type of use.
