Warnings
The following warnings are provided in the interests of overall safety. You must read them carefully before
installing or using the appliance.
• Use only the recommended quantities of fabric
softener. An excessive amount could damage the
laundry.
Installation
• All internal packing must be removed before using
the appliance. Serious damage may be caused to
the machine or adjacent furniture if the protective
transit devices are not removed or are not
completely removed. Refer to the relevant
paragraph in the instruction book.
• Leave the porthole door slightly ajar when the
appliance is not in use. This preserves the door
seal and prevents the formation of musty smells.
• Always check that water has emptied out before
opening the door. If not, drain the water following
the instructions in the instruction book.
• Any electrical work required to install this appliance
must be carried out by a qualified electrician.
• Always unplug the appliance and shut the water
tap after use.

General safety
• After having installed the machine, check that it is
not standing on its electrical supply cable.
• If the appliance is placed on a carpeted floor,
ensure that air can circulate freely between the
feet and the floor.
• Repairs to the machine must be carried out only by
qualified personnel. Repairs carried out by
inexperienced persons could cause serious
danger. Contact your local Service Centre.
Use
• Never pull the power supply cable to remove the
plug from the socket; always take hold of the plug
itself.
• This appliance is designed for domestic use. It
must not be used for purposes other than those for
which it was designed.
• During high temperature wash programmes and
during the drying cycle the door glass may get hot.
Do not touch it!
• Only wash and dry fabrics which are designed to
be machine washed and dried. Follow the
instructions on each garment label.
• Do not overload the appliance. Follow the
instructions in the instruction book.
• Make sure that all pockets are empty. Objects such
as coins, safety pins, pins and screws can cause
extensive damage.
• Do not machine wash garments saturated with
petroleum, methylated spirits, trichlorethylene, etc.
If such fluids have been used to remove stains
prior to washing, wait until they have completely
evaporated from the fabric before placing
garments in the appliance.
• Place small items such as socks, belts, etc. in a
cloth bag or pillowcase to prevent them getting
trapped between the drum and the tub.
• If you use a liquid detergent with a dispenser which
has to be placed directly in the drum, remember to
remove this dispenser before drying.

• Children are often not aware of how dangerous
electrical appliances can be. When the machine is
working, children should be carefully supervised
and not be allowed to play with the appliance.
• The packaging components (e.g. plastic film,
polystyrene) can be dangerous to children - danger
of suffocation! Keep them out of children’s reach.
• Keep all detergents in a safe place out of children’s
reach.
P1131
• Make sure that children or pets do not climb into
the drum. To avoid this the machine incorporates a
special feature. To activate this device, rotate the
button (without pressing it) inside the door
clockwise until the groove is horizontal. If
necessary use a coin.
• When the appliance is to be scrapped, cut off the
electrical supply cable and destroy the plug with
the remaining cable. Disable the door catch in
order to prevent children from becoming trapped
inside while playing.

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 (for both washing and drying cycles).
• The machine will consume less energy if the
laundry is adequately spun before being dried.

ways:
The appliance is supplied with a 13amp plug fitted.
In the event of having to change the fuse in the plug
supplied, a 13amp ASTA approved (BS1363A) fuse
must be used.
Should the plug need to be replaced for any reason,
proceed as described below.
The wires in the mains lead are coloured in
accordance with the following code:
Hooked over the edge of a sink using the plastic
hose guide supplied with the machine. In this
case, make sure the end cannot come unhooked
when the machine is emptying.
This could be done by tying it to the tap with a piece
of string or attaching it to the wall.

This new machine, which is fitted with the New Jet System, meets all modern needs for effective treatment of
laundry with low water, energy and detergent consumption.
Further savings are achieved by washing small loads of laundry, since water and electricity consumption is
proportional to the quantity and type of laundry being washed.
• The possibility of selecting the temperature, spin speed and all options offered by this machine gives you
truly “customised” washing.
• The DELAY START option allows you to delay starting of the wash programme to the desired time of day.
• The RINSE HOLD function
(stop with water in drum) can be selected for all fabrics: the laundry is left
immersed in the final rinse water to avoid the formation of creases.
• The programme progress display shows the programme steps selected and the programme phase which
is running.
• The special wool programme with its new delicate wash system treats your woollens with extreme care.
• The drying programmes will give your wash that soft, relaxed feel whatever the weather.
• 3-compartment drawer for detergent and fabric softener.
• The balance control device ensures the machine is stable during the spin.

Before loading the laundry
Removing stains
Never wash whites and coloureds together. Whites
may lose their “whiteness” in the wash.
Stubborn stains may not be removed by just water
and detergent. It is therefore advisable to treat them
prior to washing.
New coloured items may run in the first wash; they
should therefore be washed separately the first time.
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.
Make sure that no metal objects are left in the
laundry (e.g. hair clips, safety pins, pins).
Oil based paint: moisten with benzine stain
remover, lay the garment on a soft cloth and dab the
stain; treat several times.
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.
Dried grease stains: moisten with turpentine, lay
the garment on a soft surface and dab the stain with
the fingertips and a cotton cloth.
Treat curtains with special care. Remove hooks or tie
them up in a bag or net.
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.
Maximum loads
Recommended loads are indicated in the
programme charts.
Mould stains: treat with bleach, rinse well (whites
and fast coloureds only).
General rules:
Synthetics: drum no more than half full;
Grass: soap lightly and treat with bleach (whites and
fast coloureds only).
Delicate fabrics and woollens: drum no more than
one third full.
Ball point pen and glue: moisten with acetone (*),
lay the garment on a soft cloth and dab the stain.
Washing a maximum load makes the most efficient
use of water and energy.
Lipstick: moisten with acetone as above, then treat
stains with methylated spirits. Remove any residual
marks from white fabrics with bleach.
Cotton, linen: drum full but not too tightly packed;
For heavily soiled laundry, reduce the load size.
Red wine: soak in water and detergent, rinse and
treat with acetic or citric acid, then rinse. Treat any

first with acetone (*), then with acetic acid; treat any
residual marks on white fabrics with bleach and then
rinse thoroughly.
The type and quantity of detergent will depend on
the type of fabric, load size, degree of soiling and
hardness of the water used.
Water hardness is classified in so-called “degrees” of
hardness. Information on hardness of the water in
your area can be obtained from the relevant water
supply company, or from your local authority.
Tar stains: first treat with stain remover, methylated
spirits or benzine, then rub with detergent paste.
(*) do not use acetone on artificial silk.
Follow the product manufacturers’ instructions on
quantities to use.
Detergents and additives
Use less detergent if:
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.
– you are washing a small load,
– the laundry is lightly soiled,
– large amounts of foam form during washing.
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.
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.

Always look at the garment label to check whether
garments can be machine dried.
As a dryer, the machine works on the condensation
principle.
The following symbols refer to drying:
Therefore, the water tap must be open and the
drain hose must drain water into a sink or into
the drain pipe, even during the drying cycle.

• the final spin speed;
• the required degree of drying (extra dry, store dry
or iron dry);
Warning:
• the type of laundry;
Loads of washed laundry exceeding these values
must be divided before being dried, otherwise
poor results will be obtained.
• the size of load.
The usual drying times for the timed programmes are
indicated in the programme chart. As you become
more familiar with the appliance, you will discover
the drying times that best suit your needs according
to the various type of fabric. It is a good idea to make
a note of these times.
Garments not suitable for drying
• Particularly delicate items such as synthetic
curtains, woollen and silk, garments with metal
inserts, nylon stockings, bulky garments such as
anoraks, bedcovers, quilts, sleeping bags and
duvets must not be machine dried.
Fibre residue
After drying fluffy fabrics, such as new towels, it is
advisable to perform the rinse programme by means
of the SKIP/RESET button to be sure that any
residue that may remain in the tub is completely
removed and does not stick to garments dried
afterwards.
• Garments padded with foam-rubber or materials
similar to foam-rubber must not be machine dried;
they represent a fire hazard.
• Also, fabrics containing residues of setting lotions
or hair sprays, nail solvents or similar solutions
must not be machine dried in order to avoid the
formation of harmful vapours.
After each drying cycle the filter should be
checked and cleaned.
Additional drying
Should the laundry still be too wet at the end of the
programme, set another short drying cycle.
Warning! To prevent the formation of creases or
shrinking of fabrics, avoid excessive drying.

• The machine fills then empties
immediately:
• The end of the drain hose is too low. Refer to
relevant paragraph in “water drainage” section.
• The machine does not empty
and/or does not spin:
• The drain hose is squashed or kinked. (E20)
• The option RINSE HOLD
has been selected.
• The drain pump is clogged. (E20)
• There is water on the floor:
• Too much detergent or unsuitable detergent
(creates too much foam) has been used.
• Check whether there are any leaks from one of the
inlet hose fittings. It is not always easy to see this
as the water runs down the hose; check to see if it
is damp.
• The drain hose is damaged.
• The cap on the emergency emptying hose has not
been replaced after cleaning the pump.
• Unsatisfactory washing results:
• Too little detergent or unsuitable detergent has
been used.
• Stubborn stains have not been treated prior to
washing.
• The correct temperature was not selected.
• Excessive laundry load.
• The machine vibrates or is
noisy:
• The transit bolts and packing have not been
removed.
• The support feet have not been adjusted.
• The laundry is not evenly distributed in the drum.
• Maybe there is very little laundry in the drum.

ENGLISH
Something not working?
Possible cause
• Spinning starts late or the
laundry is not spun enough:
• The electronic unbalance detection device has cut
in because the laundry is not evenly distributed in
the drum. The laundry is redistributed by reverse
rotation of the drum. This may happen several
times before the unbalance disappears and normal
spinning can resume. If, after few minutes, the
laundry is still not evenly distributed in the drum,
the machine will spin at a lower speed. If at the
end of the programme the laundry is not spun
enough, redistribute the load manually and select
the spin programme.
• The machine will not dry or the
laundry is not dry enough
• The water tap is closed (E10).
• The drain filter is clogged (E20).
• The drying time or degree of dryness has not been
selected.
• An appropriate drying time or degree of dryness
has not been chosen.
• There is too much laundry inside the appliance.
Water is not
visible in the machine. The machine,
which is the result of modern technology, runs
in a very economical way with low water
consumption. Performance is
nevertheless excellent.
The machine makes an unusual
noise. The machine is fitted with a commutator
motor which improves machine
performance.
