All commonly available washing machine detergents may be used in this appliance: Removing stains – powder detergents for all types of fabric, Stubborn stains may not be removed by just water and detergent. It is therefore advisable to treat them prior to washing. – 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. 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. The detergent and any additives must be placed in the appropriate compartments of the dispenser drawer before starting the wash programme. Oil based paint: moisten with benzine stain remover, lay the garment on a soft cloth and dab the stain; treat several times. If using concentrated powder or liquid detergents, a programme without prewash must be selected. Dried grease stains: moisten with turpentine, lay the garment on a soft surface and dab the stain with the fingertips and a cotton cloth. Pour liquid detergent into the dispenser drawer compartment marked just before starting the programme. 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. 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. Mould stains: treat with bleach, rinse well (whites and fast coloureds only). Grass: soap lightly and treat with bleach (whites and fast coloureds only). Quantity of detergent to be used Ball point pen and glue: moisten with acetone (*), lay the garment on a soft cloth and dab the stain. The type and quantity of detergent will depend on the type of fabric, load size, degree of soiling and hardness of the water used. Lipstick: moisten with acetone as above, then treat stains with methylated spirits. Remove any residual marks from white fabrics with bleach. 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. 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. Follow the product manufacturers’ instructions on quantities to use. Tar stains: first treat with stain remover, methylated spirits or benzine, then rub with detergent paste. – the laundry is lightly soiled, Use less detergent if: – you are washing a small load, – large amounts of foam form during washing. (*) 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.

Bodywork Detergent can also accumulate inside the drawer recess: clean it with an old toothbrush. Refit the drawer after cleaning. Clean the outside of the machine with soap and water only. Rinse with clean water and dry with a soft cloth. Important: do not use methylated spirits, solvents or similar products to clean the bodywork. 2. Door seal Check from time to time the door seal and eliminate eventual possible objects that could be trapped in the fold. P0038 4. Water inlet filter If you notice that the machine is taking longer to fill, check that the filter in the water inlet hose is not blocked. Turn off the water tap. Unscrew the hose from the tap. Clean the filter with a stiff brush. P1050 Screw the hose back onto the tap. 3. Detergent dispenser drawer After a while, detergents and fabric softeners leave deposits in the drawer. Clean the drawer from time to time by rinsing it under a running tap. To remove the drawer from the machine, press the button in the rear left-hand corner. P1090 To facilitate cleaning, the top part of the additive compartments can be removed. 5. Drain pump The pump should be inspected regularly and particularly if • the machine does not empty and/or spin • the machine makes an unusual noise during draining due to objects such as safety pins, coins etc. blocking the pump. Proceed as follows: C0066 C0067 • Disconnect the appliance. • If necessary wait until the water has cooled down. • Open the pump door. P1114 75 132984950GB.qxd 13/09/2005 15:43 Pagina 76 (Nero/Process Black pellicola) • Place a bowl on the floor to collect any spillage. 7. Frost precautions • Pull out the emergency emptying hose, place it in the bowl and remove its cap. • When no more water comes out, unscrew the If the machine is installed in a place where the temperature could drop below 0°C, proceed as follows: • Remove the plug from the socket. • Close the water tap and unscrew the water inlet hose from the tap. • Place the end of the emergency emptying hose and that of the inlet hose in a bowl placed on the floor and let water drain out. • Screw the water inlet hose back on and reposition the emergency emptying hose after having put the cap on again. P1115 By doing this, any water remaining in the machine is removed, avoiding the formation of ice and, consequently, breakage of the affected parts. pump cover and remove it. • Remove any objects from the pump impeller by rotating it. • Put the cap back on the emergency emptying hose and place the latter back in its seat. 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 avoiding that part of the detergent remains unused at next washing. P1117 • Screw the pump cover fully in. • Close the pump door. 6. 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; • open the pump door; • place a bowl on the floor and place the end of the emergency emptying hose into the bowl. Remove its cap. The water should drain by gravity into the bowl. Whe the bowl is full, put the cap back on the hose. Empty the bowl. Repeat the procedure until water stops flowing out; • clean the pump if necessary as previously described; • replace the emergency emptying hose in its seat after having plugged it; • screw the pump cover again and close the door. 76 ENGLISH When you use the machine again, make sure that the ambient temperature is above 0°C. 132984950GB.qxd 13/09/2005 15:43 Pagina 77 (Nero/Process Black pellicola) Something not working? Problems which you can resolve yourself, before calling the After Sales Service. During machine operation it is possible that the light starts to flash: 4 flashes= the door has not been closed 2 flashes= the machine does not empty 1 flash= the machine does not fill. On model ZWF 1400 an acoustic signal will be heard. Once the problem has been eliminated, press the START/PAUSE button to restart the programme. If after all checks, the problem persists, contact your local Service Centre. Problem Possible cause • The machine does not start up: • The door is not firmly closed. • The machine is not plugged in or there is no power at the socket. • The main fuse has blown. • The (delay start) option has been selected. • The programme selector dial is not positioned correctly and the START/PAUSE button has not been depressed. • The water tap is closed. • The machine does not fill: • The inlet hose is squashed or kinked. • The filter in the inlet hose is blocked. • The door is not properly closed. • The machine fills then empties immediately: • The machine does not empty and/or does not spin: • The end of the drain hose is too low. Refer to relevant paragraph in “water drainage” section. • The drain hose is squashed or kinked. • A programme with option selected. or has been • The drain pump is clogged. • Too much detergent or unsuitable detergent (creates too much foam) has been used. • There is water on the floor: • 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 or too much detergent has been used. • An 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. 77 132984950GB.qxd 13/09/2005 15:43 Pagina 78 (Nero/Process Black pellicola) Problem Possible cause • The door will not open: • The programme is still running, the drum is turning. • The door lock has not been released. • The water level is above the bottom edge of the door. • 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. • Spinning starts late or the machine does not spin: • 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 10 minutes, the laundry is still not evenly distributed in the drum, the machine will not spin. In this case, redistribute the load manually and select the spin programme. • The machine makes an unusual noise • The machine is fitted with a type of motor which makes an unusual noise compared with other traditional motors. This new motor ensures a softer start and more even distribution of the laundry in the drum when spinning, as well as increased stability of the machine. • Detergent residue is left after the wash cycle • This is most probably due to non soluble components contained in modern detergents. It is not a sign of inadequate rinsing. Brush or shake the garments and, if necessary, wash them again. • Foam remains after the last rinse • Modern detergents can produce foam even after rinsing, but this will not affect the quality of the wash.
