Washing and Drying hints
Sorting the laundry
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.
Temperatures
for normally soiled white
cottons and linen (e.g. tea
95°
cloths, towels, tablecloths,
sheets...)
for normally soiled, colour
fast garments (e.g. shirts,
night dresses, pyjamas....) in
50°/60° linen, cotton or synthetic
fibres and for lightly soiled
white cotton (e.g.
underwear).
for delicate items (e.g. net
curtains), mixed laundry
including synthetic fibres and
30°-40°
woollens bearing the label
«pure new wool, machine
washable, non-shrink».
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.
Avoid drying dark clothes with light
coloured fluffy items such as towels as
these can attract the fluff.
Remove the laundry when the appliance has finished drying.
To avoid a static charge when drying is
completed, use either a fabric softener
when you are washing the laundry or a
fabric conditioner specifically for tumble
dryers.
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.
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.
For drying, follow the instructions given
on the manufacturer’s labels.
May be tumble dried
Drying at high temperature
Drying at reduced temperature

Important
As a dryer, the machine works on the
condensation principle.
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.
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.
Laundry weights
The following weights are indicative:

Removing stains
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.
132974850 EN.qxd
26/10/2007
11.18
Pagina
22
22 electrolux washing & drying hints
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.
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 washer-dryer
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 washer-dryer 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.
Quantity of detergent to be used
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 socalled “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.
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.

Care and cleaning
External cleaning
Clean the exterior cabinet of the
appliance with soap and water only,
and then dry thoroughly.
You must DISCONNECT the appliance
from the electricity supply, before you
can carry out any cleaning or
maintenance work.
Cleaning the dispenser drawer
The washing powder and additive
dispenser drawer should be cleaned
regularly.
Remove the drawer by pressing the
catch downwards and by pulling it out.
Flush it out under a tap, to remove any
traces of accumulated powder.
Descaling
The water we use normally contains
lime. It is a good idea to periodically
use a water softening powder in the
machine. Do this separately from any
laundry washing, and according to the
softening powder manufacturer's
instructions. This will help to prevent
the formation of lime deposits.
After each wash
Leave the door open for a while. This
helps to prevent mould and stagnant
smells forming inside the appliance.
Keeping the door open after a wash
will also help to preserve the door seal.
Maintenance Wash
With the use of low temperature
washes it is possible to get a build up
of residues inside the drum.
We recommend that a maintenance
wash be performed on a regular basis.
To run a maintenance wash:
• The drum should be empty of
laundry.
• Select the hottest cotton wash
programme.
• Use a normal measure of detergent,
must be a powder with biological
properties.
C0066
To aid cleaning, the top part of the
additive compartment should be
removed.
C0067
Cleaning the drawer recess
Having removed the drawer, use a
small brush to clean the recess,
ensuring that all washing powder
residue is removed from the upper and
lower part of the recess.
Replace the drawer and run the rinse
programme without any clothes in the
drum.

Unscrew and remove the filter.
P0039
Cleaning the water drain filter
A clean filter is important for the correct
operation of the machine, and should
therefore be cleaned after every washing programme.
Place a container underneath to catch
any spillage. If the filter is blocked and
the machine is unable to drain you will
need to drain the water manually from
the machine at this stage.
Clean carefully under a fast running
tap.
To do this, unhook the drain hose from
the standpipe or sink and hold the end
of the hose over a bowl on the floor.
The water should drain by gravity into
the bowl.
When the bowl is full, hook the hose
back up and empty the bowl. Repeat
the procedure until water stops flowing
out.
P0037
Warning!
When the appliance is in use and
depending on the programme selected
there can be hot water in the filter.
Never remove the filter during a wash
cycle, always wait until the appliance
has finished the cycle, and is empty.
When replacing the filter, ensure it is
securely retightened so as to stop
leaks and young children being able to
remove it.

Cleaning the water inlet filter
If your water is very hard or contains
traces of lime deposit, the water inlet
filter may become clogged.
It is therefore a good idea to clean it
from time to time.
Turn off the water tap. Unscrew the
water inlet hose. Clean the filter using a
hard bristle brush. Tighten up the inlet
hose.
P1090
The dangers of freezing
If the machine is exposed to temperatures below 0°C, certain precautions
should be taken.
• Turn off the water tap.
• Unscrew the inlet hose.
• Unhook the drain hose from the rear
support and position the end of this
hose and that of the inlet hose in a
bowl. Run the draining programme
«Drain».
• Disconnect the appliance.
• Screw the inlet hose and reposition
the drain hose.
• When you intend to start the
machine up again, make sure that
the room temperature is above 0°C.
Important!
Every time you drain the water through
the emergency emptying hose you must
pour 2 litres of water into the main wash
compartment of the detergent drawer
and then run the drain programme. This
will activate the ECO VALVE device
which will allow total use of the
detergent during your next wash.
Emergency emptying out
If the water is not discharged, proceed
as follows to empty out the machine:
• pull out the plug from the power
socket;
• close the water tap;
• if necessary, wait until the water has
cooled down;
• Unscrew and remove the filter;
• place a bowl on the floor. The water
should drain by gravity into the bowl.
When the bowl is full, empty the
bowl. Repeat the procedure until
water stops flowing out;
• clean the filter if necessary as
previously described;
• screw the filter again.

Solution
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

Recommendations regarding the
construction and fitting of a base
when the installation requires an
integrated appliance to be raised.
Where the appliance has been raised by
mounting onto a wooden base provided
by the installer. The material used to
construct the base should have a non
slip surface, be water repellent and if
possible be one solid piece.
If it is not possible to use one solid
piece, due to the additional height
required, ensure that any additional
strips of timber are glued and screwed
to the underside of the base (see Fig. F).

A final check for stability should be carried out with the machine on spin with a
load, this will identify the need for any
further fine adjustment to the feet.
A strip of beading approximately 605
mm W, x 5 mm H, x 25 mm D must be
screwed down into the base directly in
front of the machine’s feet, this will provide additional security.
Front edge
Position the base into the recess with its
front edge as far forward as the adjoining plinth line will allow.
The reason for placing the base in
this position is to allow a small strip
of beading to be fitted in front of the
appliance feet.
Hardwood strip

With the appliance installed adjust all
four feet ensuring the machine is stable,
and a clearance of approximately 5 mm
