The following warnings are provided in the interests of overall safety. You must read them carefully before
installing or using the appliance.
Installation
• Leave the porthole door slightly ajar when the
appliance is not in use. This preserves the door
seal and prevents the formation of musty smells.
• All internal packing must be removed before using
the appliance. Serious damage may be caused to
the machine or adjacent furniture if the protective
transit devices are not removed or are not
completely removed. Refer to the relevant
paragraph in the instruction book.
• Always check that water has emptied out before
opening the door. If not, drain the water following
the instructions in the instruction book.
• Always unplug the appliance and shut the water
tap after use.
• Any electrical work required to install this appliance
must be carried out by a qualified electrician.
• Any plumbing work required to install this
appliance must be carried out by a qualified
plumber.
General safety
• Repairs to the machine must be carried out only by
qualified personnel. Repairs carried out by
inexperienced persons could cause serious
danger. Contact your local Service Centre.
• After having installed the machine, check that it is
not standing on its electrical supply cable.
• If the appliance is placed on a carpeted floor,
ensure that air can circulate freely between the
feet and the floor.
• Never pull the power supply cable to remove the
plug from the socket; always take hold of the plug
itself.
• During high temperature wash programmes the
door glass may get hot. Do not touch it!
Use
• This appliance is designed for domestic use. It
must not be used for purposes other than those for
which it was designed.
Child safety
• Children are often not aware of how dangerous
electrical appliances can be. When the machine is
working, children should be carefully supervised
and not be allowed to play with the appliance.
• Only wash fabrics which are designed to be
machine washed. Follow the instructions on each
garment label.
• Do not overload the appliance. Follow the
instructions in the instruction book.
• The packaging components (e.g. plastic film,
polystyrene) can be dangerous to children - danger
of suffocation! Keep them out of children’s reach.
• Make sure that all pockets are empty. Objects such
as coins, safety pins, pins and screws can cause
extensive damage.
• Keep all detergents in a safe place out of children’s
reach.
• Do not machine wash garments saturated with
petroleum, methylated spirits, trichlorethylene, etc.
If such fluids have been used to remove stains
prior to washing, wait until they have completely
evaporated from the fabric before placing
garments in the appliance.
• Make sure that children or pets do not climb into
the drum.
• When the appliance is to be scrapped, cut off the
electrical supply cable and destroy the plug with
the remaining cable. Disable the door catch in
order to prevent children from becoming trapped
inside while playing.
• Place small items such as socks, belts, etc. in a
cloth bag or pillowcase to prevent them getting
trapped between the drum and the tub.
• Use only the recommended quantities of fabric
softener. An excessive amount could damage the
laundry.

Tips for environmental protection
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!

This new machine meets all modern requirements for effective treatment of laundry with low water, energy and
detergent consumption.
• The temperature selector dial will allow you to choose the most suitable temperature for your laundry.
• The automatic cooling of the washing water to 60°C before draining with the 95°C programme. This
reduces thermal shock to fabrics, helping to prevent creasing.
• The ECO valve allows total use of detergent and reduces water consumption so saving energy.

Before loading the laundry
Removing stains
Never wash whites and coloureds together. Whites
may lose their “whiteness” in the wash.
Stubborn stains may not be removed by just water
and detergent. It is therefore advisable to treat them
prior to washing.
New coloured items may run in the first wash; they
should therefore be washed separately the first time.
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.
Make sure that no metal objects are left in the
laundry (e.g. hair clips, safety pins, pins).
Oil based paint: moisten with benzine stain
remover, lay the garment on a soft cloth and dab the
stain; treat several times.
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.
Dried grease stains: moisten with turpentine, lay
the garment on a soft surface and dab the stain with
the fingertips and a cotton cloth.
Treat curtains with special care. Remove hooks or tie
them up in a bag or net.
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.
Maximum loads
Recommended loads are indicated in the
programme charts.
Mould stains: treat with bleach, rinse well (whites
and fast coloureds only).
General rules:
Grass: soap lightly and treat with bleach (whites and
fast coloureds only).
Cotton, linen: drum full but not too tightly packed;
Synthetics: drum no more than half full;
Ball point pen and glue: moisten with acetone (*),
lay the garment on a soft cloth and dab the stain.
Delicate fabrics and woollens: drum no more than
one third full.
Lipstick: moisten with acetone as above, then treat
stains with methylated spirits. Remove any residual
marks from white fabrics with bleach.
Washing a maximum load makes the most efficient
use of water and energy.
For heavily soiled laundry, reduce the load size.

132987810 gb.qxd

Pagina

Red wine: soak in water and detergent, rinse and
treat with acetic or citric acid, then rinse. Treat any
residual marks with bleach.
Follow the product manufacturer’s recommendations
on quantities to use and do not exceed the «MAX»
mark in the detergent dispenser drawer.
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.
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.
Tar stains: first treat with stain remover, methylated
spirits or benzine, then rub with detergent paste.
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.
(*) do not use acetone on artificial silk.
Detergents and additives
Follow the product manufacturers’ instructions on
quantities to use.
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.
Use less detergent if:
– you are washing a small load,
– the laundry is lightly soiled,
– large amounts of foam form during washing.
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 concentrated powder or 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.

P1117
• Screw the pump fully in.
• Close the pump door.
• Remove the plug from the socket.
Water inlet filter
• 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.
• Close the water tap and unscrew the water inlet
hose from the tap.
If you notice that the machine is taking longer to fill,
check that the filter in the water inlet hose is not
blocked.
• Screw the water inlet hose back on and reposition
the emergency emptying hose after having put the
cap on again.
Turn off the water tap.
Unscrew the hose from the tap.
By doing this, any water remaining in the machine is
removed, avoiding the formation of ice and,
consequently, breakage of the affected parts.
Clean the filter with a stiff brush.
Screw the hose back onto the tap.
When you use the machine again, make sure that
the ambient temperature is above 0°C.
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
“P”. This will activate the ECO valve avoiding that
part of the detergent remains unused at next
washing.

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 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;
