FLUFF IN THE GARMENTS
During the WASHING AND/OR DRYING
PHASE, certain types of fabric, as spongecloth, wool, sweatshirt, could release fluff.
The released fluff could stick to the fabrics
during the next cycle.
This drawback increases with technical fabrics.
To prevent the lint in your clothes, it is recommended:
• To do not wash dark fabrics after you
washed and dried light colored fabrics
•
•
•
•
(new sponge, wool, sweatshirt especially)
and vice versa.
To air-dry this type of fabrics when they
are washed the first time.
To clean the filter.
Perform one or more rinse cycles to
wash the drum between the washing and
drying of fabrics with different colors.
After the drying phase, thoroughly clean
the empty drum, the gasket and the door
with a wet rag.
HELPFUL HINTS AND TIPS
SORTING OUT 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.
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.
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.
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.
1) do not use acetone on artificial silk
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
acetone1), lay the garment on a soft cloth
and dab the stain.
Lipstick: moisten with acetone as above,
then treat stains with methylated spirits.
Treat any residual marks 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 acetone1), 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.
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

DRYING HINTS
PREPARING THE DRYING CYCLE
As a dryer, the appliance 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.
Attention!
Before starting the drying programme, reduce the loads of washed laundry, in order
to obtain good performances.
LAUNDRY 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,
bed covers, quilts, sleeping bags and duvets must not be machine dried.
• 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.
• Garments padded with foam-rubber or
materials similar to foam-rubber must not
be machine dried; they represent a fire
hazard.
• Also, fabrics containing residue 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.
The detergent and any additives must be
placed in the appropriate compartments of
16 electrolux
the dispenser drawer before starting the
wash programme.
If using liquid detergents, a programme
without prewash must be selected.
Your appliance incorporates a re-circulation
system which allows an optimal use of the
concentrated detergent.
Follow the product manufacturer’s recommendations on quantities to use and do
not exceed the «MAX» mark in the detergent dispenser drawer.
GARMENT LABELS
For drying, follow the indications given on
the manufacturer’s labels:
•

CARE AND CLEANING
Warning! You must disconnect the
appliance from the electricity supply,
before you can carry out any cleaning
or maintenance work.
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.
EXTERNAL CLEANING
Clean the exterior cabinet of the appliance
with soap and water only, and then dry
thoroughly.

large ones with the corresponding plastic plug caps supplied in the bag containing the instruction booklet.
POSITIONING
Install the machine on a flat hard floor.
Make sure that air circulation around the
machine is not impeded by carpets, rugs
etc. Check that the machine does not
touch the wall or other kitchen units. Level
the washing machine by raising or lowering
the feet. The feet may be tight to adjust as
they incorporate a self locking nut, but the
machine MUST be level and stable. If necessary, check the setting with a spirit level.
Any necessary adjustment can be made
with a spanner.
Accurate levelling prevents vibration, noise
and displacement of the machine during
operation.
Caution! Never place cardboard,
wood or similar materials under the
machine to compensate for any
unevenness in the floor. After having
levelled the appliance, tighten the lock
nuts.
RAISING THE APPLIANCE
Suspended wooden floors are particularly
susceptible to vibration.
To help prevent vibration we recommend
you place a waterproof wood panel, at least
15 mm thick under the appliance, secured
to at least 2 floor beams with screws, the
wood panel must extend beyond the front
feet.
If possible install the appliance in one of the
corners of the room, where the floor is
more stable.
WATER INLET
An inlet hose is supplied and can been
found inside the machine drum. Do not use
the hose from your previous machine to
connect to the water supply.

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.
WATER-STOP DEVICE
The inlet hose is provided with a water stop
device, which protects against damage
caused by water leaks in the hose which
could develop due to natural ageing of the
hose. This fault is shown by a red sector in
the window «A». Should this occur, turn the
water tap off and refer to your Service Centre to replace the hose.
Warning! Installation should
comply with local water authority
and building regulations’
requirements.
The appliance must be connected

When installing the appliance into the
kitchen furniture ensure, if possible, the
hoses are placed in either of the two
recesses on the back of the appliance.
This will help to prevent the hoses from
becoming kinked or trapped.

b) Hinges
To mount the hinges it is necessary to drill
two holes (dia. 35 mm, depth 12.5-14 mm
depending on the depth of door furniture)
on the inner side of the door. The distance
between the holes hobs fixing centres must
be 416 mm.
The distance from upper edge of the door
to the centre of the hole depends on the
adjacent furniture's dimensions.
The hinges will be fixed to the door by
means of screws for wood 1 and 2 (Fig. 4)
supplied with the appliance.

d) Counter-magnet
The appliance is prearranged for a magnetic closure of the door.
To enable a correct operation of this device,
it is necessary to screw the counter-magnet
A (steel disk + rubber ring) into the inner
side of the door. Its position must correspond to the magnet B on the appliance
(Fig. 6).
Warning! Do not remove the screw C.
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 anon 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. 8).

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.
Fix the base firmly to the floor using four appropriate countersunk screws (see Fig. 10).
With the appliance installed adjust all four
feet ensuring the machine is stable, and a
clearance of approximately 5 mm is left between the top of the machine and the underside of the worktop.
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.
If required an additional door magnet, part
number 1242394-00/3 and disc, part number 1242393-00/5 are available from spare
parts.

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