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.
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).
1) do not use acetone on artificial silk
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
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.
electrolux 11
Your appliance incorporates a recirculation
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.
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.
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.
DEGREES OF WATER HARDNESS
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. If the water hardness degree is medium or high we
suggest you to add a water softener following always the manufacturer’s instructions.
When the degree of hardness is soft, readjust the quantity of the detergent.

For cancelling the programme which is running or to

1) If you select the Super Quick option by pressing buttons10, we recommend that you reduce the maximum load as
indicated in the chart. Full loading is possible however with somewhat reduced cleaning results.
2) If using liquid detergents, a programme without PREWASH must be selected.
3) Standard programmes for the Energy Label consumption values. According to regulation 1061/2010, the “Cottons
Eco 60 °C” and “Cottons Eco 40 °C” are respectively the “standard 60 °C cotton programme” and the “standard
40 °C cotton programme”. They are the most efficient programmes in terms of combined energy and water
consumptions for washing normally soiled cotton laundry.
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
14 electrolux
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.

Problem
Possible cause/Solution
The machine does not empty and/or does
not spin:
The drain hose is squashed or kinked.
• Check the drain hose connection.
The drain filter is clogged.
• Clean the drain filter.
An option or a programme that ends with the
water still in the tub or a that eliminates all the
spinning phases has been selected.
• Disable the option.
• Select the draining or the spinning programme.
The laundry is not evenly distributed in the
drum.
• Redistribute the laundry.
There is water on the floor:
Too much detergent or unsuitable detergent
(creates too much foam) has been used.
• Reduce the detergent quantity or use another
one.
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.
• Check the water inlet hose connection.
The drain hose is damaged.
• Change it with a new one.
The cap on the emergency emptying hose has
not been replaced or the filter has not been
properly screwed in after cleaning action.
• Refit the cap on the emergency emptying
hose or screw the filter fully in.
Unsatisfactory washing results:
Too little detergent or unsuitable detergent has
been used.
• Increase the detergent quantity or use another one.
Stubborn stains have not been treated prior to
washing.
• Use commercial products to treat the stubborn stains.
The correct temperature was not selected.
• Check if you have selected the correct temperature.
Excessive laundry load.
• Introduce into the drum less laundry.
The door will not open:
The programme is still running.

electrolux 19
Problem
Possible cause/Solution
The machine vibrates or is noisy:
The transit bolts and packing have not been removed.
• Check the correct installation of the appliance.
The support feet have not been adjusted
• Check the correct levelling of the appliance.
The laundry is not evenly distributed in the
drum.
• Redistribute the laundry.
Maybe there is very little laundry in the drum.
• Load more laundry.
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 some
minutes, the laundry is still not evenly distributed
in the drum, the machine will not spin.
• Redistribute the laundry.
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.
No water is visible in the drum:
Machines based on modern technology operate
very economically using very little water without
affecting performance.
If you are unable to identify or solve the
problem, contact our service centre. Before
telephoning, make a note of the model, serial number and purchase date of your machine: the Service Centre will require this
information.

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,

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.
