ENGLISH
CAUTION!
- Never stop a washer-dryer
before the end of the drying
cycle unless all items are
quickly removed and spread
out so that the heat is
dissipated.
- Do not dry cloths in washerdryer with dry clean solvents.
Also do not use laundry
enhancement products during
the drying cycle.
To minimize the risk of fire in a
washer-dryer, following should be
observed:
Items that have been spotted or
soaked with vegetable or cooking oil
constitute a fire hazard and should not
placed in a washer-dryer. Oil-affected
items can ignite spontaneously,
especially when exposed to heat
sources such as in washer-dryer. The
items become warm, causing an
oxidation creates heat. If the heat
cannot escape, the items can become
hot enough to catch fire. Piling,
stacking or storing oil-affected items
can prevent heat from escaping and
so create a fire hazard.
If it is unavoidable that fabrics that
contain vegetable or cooking oil or
have been contaminated by hair care
products be placed in washer-dryer
they should first be washed in hot
water with extra detergent - this will
reduce, but not eliminate the hazard.
The ‘cool down’ cycle of washer-dryer
is used to reduce the temperature of
the items. They should not be
removed from the washer-dryer or
piled or stacked while hot.
5
Items that have been previously cleaned
in, washed in, soaked in or spotted with
petrol/gasoline, dry- cleaning solvents
or other flammable or explosive
substances should not be placed in
washer-dryer.
Highly flammable substances commonly
used in domestic environments include
acetone, denatured alcohol,
petrol/gasoline, kerosine, spot removers
(some brands), turpentine, waxes and
wax removers.
Items containing foam rubber (also
known as latex foam) or similarly
textured rubber, like materials should
not be dried in a washer-dryer on a
heat setting.
Foam rubber materials can, when
heated, produce fire by spontaneous
combustion.
Fabric softeners or similar products
should not be used in a washer-dryer to
eliminate the effects of static electricity
unless this practice is specifically
recommended by the manufacturer of
the fabric softener or product.
Undergarments that contain metal
reinforcements should not be placed
in a washer-dryer.
Damage to the washer-dryer can
result if metal reinforcements come
loose during drying. When available a
drying rack could be used for such
itmes.
Plastic articles such as shower caps
or babies’ waterproof napkin covers
should not be placed in washer-dryer.

8. WASHING HINTS
8.1 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.
8.2 Temperatures
For normally soiled white
cottons and linen
90°C
(e.g. teacloths, towels,
tablecloths, sheets...).
For normally soiled,
colourfast garments (e.g.
60°C shirts, night dresses,
50°C pyjamas....) in linen, cotton
40°C or synthetic fibres and for
lightly soiled white cotton
(e.g.underwear).
For delicate items (e.g. net
curtains), mixed laundry
30°C including synthetic fibres
Cold and woollens bearing the
label pure new wool,
machine washable,
non-shrink.
8.3 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 a net.
8.4 Maximum Loads
Recommended loads are indicated
in the program 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.
24
www.electrolux.com
8.5 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 in cold water. 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.
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.
8.6 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.
Only low suds Front load washer
detergents should 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 program
(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
program.
ENGLISH
Pour liquid detergent into the
dispenser drawer compartment
marked ‘
’ just before starting
the program.
If using concentrated powder
or liquid detergents, a program
without PREWASH must be
selected.
Any fabric softener or starching
additives must be poured into the
compartment marked ‘ ’ before
starting the wash program.
Follow the product manufacturer’s
recommendations on quantities to
use and do not exceed the MAX
mark in the detergent dispenser
drawer.
Do not spray stain pre-treatment
products (e.g. Preen) on or near
the machine, as it can attack
plastic materials reducing its
life.
8.7 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
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.
Follow the product manufacturers’
instructions on quantities to use.
25
Not enough washing powder
causes:
the washload to turn grey,
greasy clothes.
Too much washing powder causes:
sudsing,
reduced washing effect,
inadequate rinsing.
Use less detergent if:
you are washing a small load,
the laundry is lightly soiled,
large amounts of foam form
during washing.

10. CARE AND CLEANING
WARNING!
You must DISCONNECT the
appliance from the electricity
supply, before you can carry out
any cleaning or maintenance
work.
10.1 External Cleaning
Clean the appliance only with soap
and warm water. Fully dry all the
surfaces.
CAUTION!
Do not use alcohol, solvents or
chemical products.
10.2 Descaling
The water we use normally
contains lime. It is a good idea to
periodically use a water softening
powder in the machine.
To run a maintenance wash:
The drum should be empty of
laundry.
Select the hottest cotton wash
program.
Use a normal measure of
detergent, must be a powder
with biological properties.
10.5 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.
Do this separately from any laundry
washing, and according to the
softening powder manufacturer's
instructions.
1
This will help to prevent the
formation of lime deposits.
10.3 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.
10.4 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.
2
3
28
www.electrolux.com
To aid cleaning, the top part of the
additive compartment should be
removed.
10.6 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 program without any clothes
in the drum.
10.7 Cleaning The Pump
Regularly examine the drain pump
and make sure that it is clean.
Clean the pump if:
The appliance does not drain the
water.
The drum cannot turn.
The appliance makes an unusual
noise because of the blockage of
the drain pump.
The display shows an alarm code
because of the problem with
water drain.

13.2 Positioning
It is important that your
machine stands firm and level
on the floor to ensure correct
operation.
Loosen or tighten the feet to adjust
the level. A correct adjustment of
the appliance level prevents the
vibration, noise and the movement
of the appliance when in operation.
That the appliance must not be
installed behind a lockable door, a
sliding door or a door with a hinge
on the opposite side to that of the
machine door is restricted.
Use a spirit level on the top and
side of the machine to check the
levels.
If you do not have a spirit level, as a
guide use the edge of a door frame,
cupboard or bench to check that
the machine is level.
When the machine is levelled, try
to rock it from corner to corner. If it
does rock, adjust the legs again
until it is levelled and does not
rock.
Never place cardboard, wood or
similar materials under the machine
to compensate for any unevenness
in the floor.

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 cupboard units.
13.3 Water Inlet
Connect the water inlet hose to a
tap with 3/4” BSP thread.
Use the hose supplied with the
machine. DO NOT USE OLD
HOSES.
The other end of the inlet hose
which connects to the machine
can be turned in any direction.
Simply loosen the fitting, rotate
the hose and retighten the fitting,
making sure there are no water
leaks.
In this case, make sure the end
cannot come unhooked when the
machine is emptying.
This could be done by tying it to
the tap with a piece of string or
attaching it to the wall.
In a sink drain pipe branch. This
branch must be above the trap so
that the bend is at least 60 cm
above the ground.
Directly into a drain pipe at a
height of not less than 60 cm and
not more than 90 cm.
The end of the drain hose must
always be ventilated, i.e. the
inside diameter of the drain pipe
must be larger than the outside
diameter of the drain hose.
The end of the drain hose can be
positioned in three ways:
Hooked over the edge of a sink
using the plastic hose guide
supplied with the machine.
60 cm
13.4 Water Drainage
The drain hose must not be
kinked. Run it along the floor; only
the part near the drainage point
must be raised.
90 cm
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.
For the correct functioning of the
machine the drain hose must
remain hooked on the proper
support piece situated on the top
part of back side of the appliance.

14.3 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.
