Preparing the wash cycle
Preparing your garments for washing
o Your washing should be sorted out, according to
the fabric type and the wash care symbol that is
printed on the garment’s wash care label (see
separate section on wash care symbols).
o Your washing should also be sorted out
according to the degree of soiling.
o Check all pockets on a garment to make sure that they are
empty.
o Remove any detachable metal items (badges,
paperclips, safety pins etc).
o Zips should be closed, duvet covers and pillow cases should be
buttoned up and any loose straps should be tied up. This will
help to prevent other garments from getting damaged during the
wash.
o Woollens and knitted coloured fabrics should be turned inside out
before being washed in the appliance.
o Small delicate items (tights, baby socks) should be placed in
either a washing net or a zipped pillow case.
o Curtains should be handled with particular care. All plastic hooks
or metal strips must be removed before being washed in the
appliance.
o Coloured items and whites should be washed
in separate wash cycles.
o New garments often contain an excess of dye, therefore it is
advisable to wash them separately for their first wash.
o Garments should be unfolded and shook out before being placed
inside the machine.

o The wash care symbols should be used to help you to select the
most suitable wash program. They will also help you to sort your
laundry into different loads, depending on the fabric type and the
highest temperature which the garment can be washed at.
Detergents and conditioners
IMPORTANT: Only detergents suitable for use in washing
machines should be used.
The amount of detergent that you need to use in your appliance, will
depend on
o The degree of soiling. Lightly soiled garments in general
require less detergent.
o The size of the wash load. A smaller wash load will require a
reduction in the amount of detergent.
o The hardness of your tap water. The harder your water is,
then the more detergent you will need to use. The detergent
manufacturers normally give guidance as to how much extra
detergent should be used, depending on the hardness of the
water.
13
Liquid detergent
If you are using liquid detergent, then in the majority of cases the
liquid should be placed inside the dosing device supplied by the
detergent manufacturer and placed inside the drum. All instructions on
the detergent packaging should be followed.
Low temperatures
o The enzymes in biological washing detergents work best at low
temperatures to provide excellent cleaning and stain removal
results, but not as low as 20°C.
o Liquid or gel detergents are particularly suitable for low
temperature washing as they dissolve easier and quicker than
powders or tablets.
Water softening agents
If your tap water is hard, then it may be prudent to utilise a water
softening agent. This will help to ensure that the appliance does not
become clogged with hard water deposits. You may also find that it will
allow you to lessen the amount of detergent that you are using.
When using any detergent or water softening
agent,
the
recommendations
of
the
manufacturers should be followed.

o The Easy-Iron function means that the machine will not execute
the last drain of the wash cycle – until the start/pause button is
pressed.
o This means that the laundry will sit in the water until you are
ready to remove it for drying, preventing it from developing
creases.
NOTE: The maximum running time of this function is 12 hours.
After this time the machine will drain and spin automatically.
Extra rinse
o The extra rinse option is mainly used for underwear or for the
clothes of people with sensitive skin. The laundry will undergo an
additional rinse to remove more residues of detergent.
o To program an extra rinse, press the Rinse+ function button (1)
after you have selected a wash program (4) but before starting
the wash cycle by pressing start (3).

operational.
o Press and hold the rinse+ button (1) and the delay start button (2)
for 3-4 seconds to lock all controls on the control panel. There will
be an audible signal to confirm activation.
o This will prevent accidental operation by unauthorised persons such
as children.
o To deactivate the child-lock, press and hold the Rinse+ and Delay
start button again for 3-4 seconds.
o When locking or unlocking there will be an audible signal.
Power off memory
o You do not need to do anything if the power supply to the machine
is cut off in the middle of a cycle.
o The appliance will continue the wash when the power is turned on
again.
IMPORTANT: Please do not open the door by force when the
power is off.
18
Maintenance and cleaning
In daily use
o Once a wash cycle has completed, you should pull out the
detergent drawer slightly, so it can dry out.
o Leave the porthole door ajar for a short while after a wash cycle
has completed. This should help to prevent stagnant smells and
to protect the door seal.
o After each washing program has finished, wipe up the remaining
water on the rubber seal ring and seal fold to prevent any
mildew and rot.
o Close the water tap.
o We suggest that you disconnect the appliance from your mains
supply, when it is not in use.
Control panel and washing machine cabinet.
IMPORTANT: Do not use any abrasive cleaner or household polish on
either the control panel or operating parts.
o Wipe over the control panel and the external surface of the
machine using a brand new damp cloth with warm water.
o If you ever spill any liquid detergent or conditioner from the
detergent drawer onto the washing machine cabinet, then these
should be cleaned up immediately as they could be corrosive.
Detergent drawer
Occasionally the detergent drawer should be cleaned, to remove any
detergent residue that has built up.
o Pull out the detergent drawer
until you feel resistance.
o Press the release catch and pull
out the drawer at the same time
to remove from the machine.
19
o Detergent can also accumulate
inside the detergent drawer
recess, so you should also clean
this out using warm soapy water
and a soft cloth.
o Once you have finished cleaning
the detergent drawer and recess,
you should slide the drawer back
into its original position.
The washing machine drum
The drum of your washing machine is constructed from stainless steel.
However if objects that can rust are placed inside the drum, then it is
possible for the drum to become stained.
o We would recommend cleaning the drum by running the “AntiBac” (anti-bacterial) wash cycle approximately once every 3
months. Add a little detergent but DO NOT add laundry when
cleaning using this cycle.
IMPORTANT: Do not use a descaling agent, iron/steel wool or
scouring agents to clean the drum of your appliance.
o Remove any rust stains on the drum with an appropriate
stainless steel cleaning agent.
Door
o You should regularly check to see if any deposits have formed,
or there are any foreign bodies inside or underneath the rubber
door gasket. This sits inside the opening of the porthole door.
20
Cleaning the drain pump filter
IMPORTANT: Switch off your washing machine and disconnect the
plug from your mains supply.
You should clean out the filter approximately every ten washes.
If the drain pump filter is not cleaned regularly, then your
appliance may find it difficult to pump out water efficiently.
1) Open the service panel
2) Place a container close to collect any water
spillage.
3) When no more water drains out, unscrew
the pump cover and remove it. Always keep
a cloth nearby to dry up any water spillage
when removing the cover.
4) Remove any objects from the pump filter
carefully.
4) Screw the pump cover fully back on.
4) Close the service panel.
IMPORTANT: Never remove the pump cover during a wash cycle.
Always wait until the appliance has finished a wash cycle and is empty.
When replacing the cover, ensure it is fully tightened to prevent leaks
and to prevent children being able to remove it.
IMPORTANT: If you are draining water from the drain hose and drain
pump filter in an emergency, you should take care as the water
coming from the machine mid-cycle could be hot, especially if the
water is being drained in the middle of one of the hotter wash cycles.
NOTE: The filter should be cleaned approximately every 2 months, or
when the LED fault code “Rinse” and “Spin” flashes.
21
Cleaning the water inlet filter
o Clean the filter approximately every 6 months, when water leaks
from the water inlet, or if there are frequent interruptions to
your water supply.
o Always pull the power plug out before cleaning.
1) Use long-nose pliers to remove
the water inlet filter
2) Clean carefully with a gauze
brush and then replace.
Winter storage
o You should install your appliance in a location where it will not be
subjected to freezing temperatures.
o If you are going to store your appliance in a location where the
temperature will drop below freezing in winter, then you should
follow the table below.
To winterize the washer
 Turn off the water supply.
 Disconnect and drain the water
inlet hoses.
 Run the washer on a drain and
spin setting for one minute.
 Unplug the power supply cord.
To use the washer again
 Flush the water pies
and hoses.
 Reconnect the water
inlet hoses.
 Turn on the water
supply.
 Reconnect the power
supply cord.
22
Removing stains
Garments that are covered in stains, grease or are heavily soiled may
need to be pre-washed or soaked before being placed inside of the
washing machine.
o Soaking helps to remove protein-type stains, like blood, milk or
grass.
o Pre-washing helps to loosen soil before the main wash.
Stain removal rules
o Use warm water for soaking or pre-washing stained laundry. Hot
water can set stains.
o Most stains are easier to remove when they are fresh.
o Before treating any stain try to establish; what kind of stain it is,
how old the stain is, what the fabric type is and whether the
fabric is colourfast (check the care label to find this out).
o Washing and drying can fix some stains.
o When bleach is recommended, use mild fabric bleach that is safe
for the fabric.
o If you need to use a stain remover, put the stained area face
down on a paper towel or white cloth. Apply the stain remover to
the back of the stain. This forces the stain off the fabric, instead
of through it.

Removal Method
The stain should be first washed with cold water, then
wiped with glycerine and water and rinsed with water
mixed with vinegar.
The stain should be softly scratched without ruining the
material, then rubbed with detergent and rinsed. In case
it is not eliminated, rub with 1 unit of pure alcohol (96
degrees) mixed in 2 units of water and then washed with
lukewarm water.
Stretch the stained area of material on the top of a
container and pour water as hot as the material can
endure on it. If the type of material is suitable, wash it
with lye.
Leave your clothes in cold water and rub with soap or
detergent, wash it in the highest temperature that the
material type can endure. If there is still a stain of oil left,
wipe with oxygenated water (in proportion of 3%).
23
Tomato
paste
Scrape the dried pieces without ruining the material, then
leave in cold water for about 30 minutes and wash by
rubbing with detergent.
Meat broth/
egg
Eliminate the dried stain residues and wipe with a sponge
or soft cloth wetted in cold water. Rub with detergent and
wash with diluted lye.
Grease and
oil stains
First wipe the residues. Rub the stain with detergent and
then wash with lukewarm soapy water.
Mustard
First apply glycerine to the stained area. Rub with
detergent and then wash. If the stain still does not
disappear, wipe with alcohol (on synthetic and coloured
cloth, a mixture of 1 unit alcohol, 2 units water should be
used).
Lay your clothes in cold water for 30 minutes. If the stain
still does not disappear, lay in mixture of water and
ammonia (3 table-spoons of ammonia in 4 litres of water)
for 30 minutes.
Lay your clothes in cold water and rub the stained area
with detergent. If the stain has still not disappeared,
apply lye on the fabric of your clothes in proper
proportion. (Do not use lye on coloured clothes).
Mould stains should be cleaned as soon as possible. The
stain should be washed with detergent, and if it does not
disappear, it should be wiped with oxygenated water (in
proportion of 3%).
Hold the stained area under cold water and wait until the
inky water completely runs off. Then rub with water
diluted with lemon juice and detergent. Wait five minutes
and then wash.
Stretch the stained area of your clothes on the top part of
a container and pour cold water on it. Do not pour hot
water on the stain. Wipe with cold water and apply
glycerine. Wait for 1-2 hours and rinse after wiping with a
few drops of white vinegar.
Rub the stained part with detergent. If the type of fabric
is suitable for use of lye, wash it with lye. Rub your
woolen clothes with alcohol (for coloured one, a mixture
of 1 unit pure alcohol and 2 units of water).
The stain should be eliminated before it dries by applying
thinner on it. Then it should be rubbed with detergent and
washed.

If your fabric is suitable for use of lye, you can add lye
into your washing water. For woolen fabric, a cloth
dampened in oxygenated water should be pressed on the
stain and it should be ironed with a dry cloth on it. It
should be washed after rinsing well.

Poor wash results
My garments are looking grey and there are limescale
deposits present in the drum of my washing machine.
o
o
o
o
There is not enough detergent being added.
The incorrect detergent is being used.
Stains are not being pre-treated.
The correct wash program or wash temperature was not selected.
I have followed the advice given above, but my
garments are still coming out with grey stains on them.
o The garments are soiled with oils, ointments or grease and were
washed without enough detergent.
o The wash temperature selected was too low.
o Fabric conditioner has come into contact with the garments. If this
happens try to wash out these stains as quickly as you can and try
to avoid getting conditioner on the garments in future.
After the final rinse, I can still see foam.
o Modern detergents can result in there still being foam in the final
rinse, this does not mean that the washing is not being rinsed
properly.
There is white residue on my garments when I remove
them from the appliance.
o Modern detergents can contain insoluble contents; white residue
after a wash cycle is not necessarily a sign of the garments being
insufficiently rinsed by the washing machine.
o You should shake out the garment or brush it off. In future possibly
turn the garment inside out before it is washed. You may wish to
move from a powder detergent and switch to a liquid detergent
instead.

grommets.
3) Insert the transport bolt caps (hole
covers) into the holes left by the
removal of the transport bolts.
26
Locating your washing machine
o Before commencing installation, check the location where you
intend to install the appliance. You should make sure that you
have everything in place that is necessary for the correct
installation.
o Do not place or store your washing machine in a location where
the ambient temperature could fall below 0°C, otherwise the
water in it could freeze.
o Never place or store laundry products on top of the appliance.
o Install the washer on a flat, solid floor. If the washer is installed
on an uneven or suspended floor, it could cause excessive noise
and severe vibration, which may result in the malfunction of the
appliance.
o You should also level off the washing machine, using the
adjustable feet on the base of the appliance.
27
Connecting to the mains water supply
IMPORTANT: The washing machine should never be connected to the
water mains using an existing inlet hose, YOU MUST utilise the inlet
hose that is provided with the appliance.
Your appliance should only be connected to a cold water supply.
1) Take out the attached inlet hose.
2) Attach the inlet hose vertically to the spiral tap for
the washing machine.
3) Screw the tap tightly in the direction of the screw
thread of the inlet hose.
4) Connect the hose to the water inlet
at the back of the washing machine.
IMPORTANT: When connecting the screw thread of the inlet
hose and the inlet valve, prevent the screw thread from being
secured incorrectly or it will wear or leak.
Do not over bend the inlet hose or this will cause damage.
28
Connecting to the water outlet
1) Please use an elbow / “U” piece
(provided) to bend the drain hose at a
proper angle and fix securely.
1) The correct position of
the drain hose is one
which will prevent any
water leaking onto the
floor or other surfaces.
2) Ensure that the top of
the standpipe is no more
than 90cm above floor
level and no less than
60cm.
IMPORTANT: Do not insert the
drain hose too deeply into the
water pipe, as this may cause
siphoning.
4) To prevent siphoning, the
installation height of the drain hose
should be between 0.6 – 0.9 m and
the end of the drain hose should
not be immersed in water.
NEVER EXTEND THE DRAINAGE HOSE FROM ITS ORIGINAL
LENGTH.
29
Levelling the appliance
o Place the washing machine on a solid and level floor surface.
DO NOT PLACE THE WASHING MACHINE ON A CARPET OR A
SUSPENDED FLOOR.
o If the floor is obviously uneven, the appliance needs to be
adjusted to prevent the drum from inclining or the machine from
moving while in use. Use the adjustable feet to level the
appliance.
1) Unscrew the adjusting nut (1) with
a spanner.
2) Adjust the height of the legs using
the foot (2).
3) Screw the nut (1) to secure the
levelling foot.
IMPORTANT: There should be no
instability of the machine when the
adjustable legs have been set to the
correct level.
Power supply
IMPORTANT: The
electrical socket must
still be accessible
once the appliance is
installed.
 Consult the rating plate BEFORE making the electrical
connections. Ensure that the voltage reaching the plug, is the
same as that on the rating plate.
 DO NOT REMOVE THE RATING
INFORMATION ON IT IS IMPORTANT.
PLATE
AS
THE
30
 The moulded plug that is supplied with the appliance must be
placed into an earthed and insulated socket.
 Broken or damaged power leads must only be replaced by a
suitably qualified person. A power lead of a similar type must be
used in replacement.
 IMPORTANT: We do not recommend that this appliance is
connected to an extension lead.
Before first use maintenance wash
o When your washing machine has been correctly installed, we
recommend that you perform the high temperature “Anti-Bac”
(Anti-bacterial) cycle without any clothing being placed inside of the
drum.
o This will check that all aspects of the installation are correct; it will
also remove any deposits that may have been left on the drum by
the manufacturing process.

General troubleshooting
Problem
The washing machine does
not work.
Water leakage.
The spin of the clothes is
abnormal.
There is a peculiar smell in
the washing machine.
No water is visible in the
drum.
There is remaining water
in the softener
compartment.
The remaining detergent is
left on the clothes.
The washing machine does
not fill.
Spinning starts late or the
machine does not spin.
Possible solutions
o Close the washing machine’s door.
o Confirm and press the start button.
o The control panel might be locked – see the
“Child lock” section and try unlocking the control
panel.
o Correctly connect the inlet water pipe.
o Reload and distribute the laundry evenly in the
drum.
o Run a “Anti-Bac” cycle without any clothes.
o
No fault. The water is under the visible area.
o
No fault. The effect of the softener will not be
affected.
o
The water-fast component of the nonphosphorus detergent left on the clothes will
cause lime scale. Select the rinse and spin
program or brush away the detergent when the
clothes are dried.
Open the water tap.
Check the selection of the program.
Check the water pressure to see if the water
pressure is insufficient.
Put through the feed-water.
Close the machine’s door.
Check if the inlet water pipe is bent or clocked.
The imbalance control system has activated
because the laundry is unevenly distributed in
the drum,
The appliance will redistribute the laundry by
reversing the drum rotation. This may take
several attempts before the laundry is evenly
distributed and normal spinning can resume.
If the laundry is still not evenly distributed after
10 minutes, the machine will not spin. In the
event of this, redistribute the load manually and
select the program again.
Make sure the end of the drainage pipe is higher
than the water level in the machine.
Check if the drainage pipe and sewage have
been sealed. If they have been, there will be
poor ventilation which causes siphoning.
Check if the drainage pump is blocked.
Check if the drainage pipe is bent or blocked.
Check the height of the drainage nozzle and
make sure it is 60-90cm from the bottom of the
washing machine.
Level the appliance.
Fasten the footing.
Check the transportation bolts have been
removed.

Check if the detergent use is excessive.
Put one scoop of softener mixed with ½ litre of
water into detergent compartment II.
Reduce the usage amount of detergent in the
next wash.
The machine stops when
the program has not
finished.
The drainage pump makes
a noise during operation
when the water has just
been drained.
o
Power failure or water supply cut-off.
o
Machine stops for some
time during a cycle.
o
o
The inner barrel water of the washing machine
has been drained but there is still a small
amount of water in the drainage pump and pipe.
The drainage pump continuously operates and
takes in the air, and at this time there is noise
which is normal.
The machine adds water automatically.
There are too many bubbles in the tube so the
machine is cleaning the tube.
IMPORTANT: If your appliance appears not to be
operating correctly, then you should disconnect it
