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. Do not overload!

Your new washing machine
This new machine meets all modern requirements for effective treatment of laundry with low water, energy and
detergent consumption.
• The programme selector dial combines the function of programme and temperature selection, making it
easier to set the programme.
• The delay start allows you to delay the programme start by 2 to 12 hours (e.g. to times with a more
economical power rate).
• The special wool programme with its new delicate wash system treats your woollens with extreme care.
• The automatic cooling of the washing water from 95° to 60°C before draining will prevent old drain pipes
from being deformed and will reduce thermal shock to fabrics, helping to prevent creasing.
• The unbalance detection device prevents vibration during spinning.
• The ECO valve allows total use of detergent and reduces water consumption so saving energy.

you can wash garments marked with
the”handwash” symbol
.
Make sure that no metal objects are left in the
laundry (e.g. hair clips, safety pins, pins).
New coloured items may run in the first wash; they
should therefore be washed separately the first time.
Remove persistent stains before washing. Rub
particularly soiled areas with a special detergent or
detergent paste.
Attention!
If during a washing programme the selector dial is
turned to another programme, the pilot lights of the
programme progress display start to flash. The

label and the manufacturer’s washing instructions.
Sort the laundry as follows:
whites, coloureds, synthetics, delicates, woollens.
Delicate fabrics and woollens: drum no more than
one third full.
Washing a maximum load makes the most efficient
use of water and energy.

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:
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. Although
biodegradable, detergents contain substances
which, in large quantities, can upset the delicate

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.

• the machine makes an unusual noise during
draining due to objects such as safety pins, coins
etc. blocking the pump.
Proceed as follows:

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.

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;

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.

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.
