Washing hints
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.
Temperatures
for normally soiled white
cottons and linen (e.g. tea
cloths, towels, tablecloths,
sheets...)
for normally soiled, colour
fast garments (e.g. shirts,
night dresses, pyjamas....) in
50°-60° linen, cotton or synthetic
fibres and for lightly soiled
white cotton (e.g.
underwear).
for delicate items (e.g. net
curtains), mixed laundry
30°-40°- including synthetic fibres and
(cold) woollens bearing the label
«pure new wool, machine
washable, non-shrink».
90°or
95°
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 net.
Maximum loads
Recommended loads are indicated in
the programme 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.
Laundry weights
The following weights are indicative:
bathrobe
1200 g
napkin

Removing stains
Stubborn stains may not be removed by
just water and detergent. It is therefore
advisable to treat them prior to washing.

washing hints electrolux 17
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 cold.
Be careful with rust stains which are not
recent since the cellulose structure will
have already 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.

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.
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.
All commonly available washing machine
detergents may 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 programmes (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 programme.
If using liquid detergents, a programme
without prewash must be selected.
The washing machine incorporates a
recirculation system which allows an
optimal use of the concentrated
detergent.
Pour liquid detergent into the dispenser
drawer compartment marked
just
before starting the programme.
Any fabric softener or starching additives
must be poured into the compartment
marked
before starting the wash
programme.

18 electrolux washing hints
Follow the product manufacturer’s
recommendations on quantities to use
and do not exceed the «MAX» mark
in the detergent dispenser drawer.
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.
Use less detergent if:
• you are washing a small load,
• the laundry is lightly soiled,
• large amounts of foam form during
washing.
• for the stain treatment before the
washing cycle, follow the product
manufacturers’ instructions on
detergent quantities. If you use any
specific product to remove the stains,
you must start the washing
immediately .
Degrees of water hardness
Water hardness is classified in socalled “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.
Note: A water softener must be added
when water has a medium-high degree
of hardness (from degree of hardness
II). Follow the manufacturer’s
instructions. The quantity of detergent
can then always be adjusted to degree
of hardness I (=soft).

Care and cleaning
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.
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.
C0066
To aid cleaning, the top part of the
additive compartment should be
removed. Clean all parts with water.

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.
Door seal
Check the door seal from time to time
and remove any objects that could be
trapped in the fold.
P1050
P0038
Insert the detergent dispenser drawer
in the guide rails and push it in.
Washing drum
Rust deposits in the drum may occur
due to rusting foreign bodies in the
laundry or tap water containing iron.
Important! Do not clean the drum with
acidic descaling agents, scouring
agents containing chlorine or iron or
steel wool.
1. Remove any rust deposits on the
drum with a cleaning agent for
stainless steel.
2. Run a washing cycle without any
laundry to clean off any cleaning
agent residues. Programme:
COTTONS/LINEN 90° or 95°C,
press button 9 to select Super
Quick option, add approx. 1/4

Cleaning the water inlet filter
If your water is very hard or contains
traces of lime deposit, the water inlet
filter may become clogged.
It is therefore a good idea to clean it
from time to time.
P1231
Turn off the water tap. Unscrew the
water inlet hose. Clean the filter using a
hard bristle brush. Tighten up the inlet
hose.
The dangers of freezing
If the machine is exposed to
temperatures below 0°C, certain
precautions should be taken.
• Turn off the water tap.
• Unscrew the inlet hose.
• 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.
• When you intend to start the
machine up again, make sure that
the room temperature is above 0°C.
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;
• 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. When 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;

P0351
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.
Note !
Installation should comply with
local water authority and building
regulations’ requirements.
The appliance must be connected
to a cold water supply.
A minimum water pressure of 0.05
MPa (0.5 bar) is required for safe
operation of the appliance.
If you cannot make the cold water
connection direct from the rising mains,
you may be able to operate the
appliance from your cold water storage
system.
There should be a minimum vertical
distance of 5.02m (16.5 ft) between
the appliance’s inlet and the bottom of
the water storage tank.
Water drainage
This appliance is designed to be permanently plumbed into your home's
drainage system using one of the following methods.
1. Into a drainage standpipe

In the interest of the environment
Washing machines should be connected to the FOUL drainage system, the
water will then be taken to a sewage
works for treatment before being discharged safely into a river.
It is essential that these appliances are
not connected to the surface water
drainage system as this water is discharged directly into a river or stream
and may cause pollution.
If you require any further advice please
contact your local water authority.
Important!
Before connecting up the machine to
new pipework or to pipework that has
not been used for some time, run off a
reasonable amount of water to flush
out any debris that may have collected
in the pipes.

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 (B) from upper edge of
the door to the centre of the hole
depends on the adjacent furniture's
dimensions.
The required dimensions are given in
the picture C.
The hinges will be fixed to the door by
means of screws for wood (2-Fig. B)
supplied with the appliance.

c) Mounting the door
Fix the hinges (1) to the machine by
means of the M5x15 screws (3-Fig. B).
The hinges can be adjusted to compensate for possible uneven thickness
of the door.
To align the door perfectly it is necessary to loosen the screw (3-Fig. B),
adjust the door and tighten the screw
again.
Recommendations regarding the
construction and fitting of a base
when the installation requires an
integrated appliance to be raised.
d) Counter-magnet (6)
The appliance is pre-arranged for a
magnetic closure of the door. To
enable a correct operation of this
device, it is necessary to screw the
counter-magnet (6) (steel disk + rubber
ring) into the inner side of the door.
Its position must correspond to the
magnet (4) on the appliance (see picture D).
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 a
non 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.
F).

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. H).

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.

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.
