Sort the laundry as follows: whites, coloureds, synthetics, delicates, woollens. napkin 100 g quilt cover 700 g sheet 500 g pillow case 200 g Temperatures tablecloth 250 g towelling towel 200 g 95° tea cloth 100 g night dress 200 g ladies’ briefs 100 g man’s work shirt 600 g 60° 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 linen, cotton or synthetic fibres and for lightly soiled white cotton (e.g. underwear). (cold)for delicate items (e.g. net curtains), mixed laundry including synthetic fibres and woollens. 30°-40° 1200 g man’s shirt 200 g man’s pyjamas 500 g blouse 100 g men’s underpants 100 g 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: Synthetics: drum no more than half full; Grass: soap lightly and treat with bleach (whites and fast coloureds only). Delicate fabrics and woollens: drum no more than one third full. Ball point pen and glue: moisten with acetone (*), lay the garment on a soft cloth and dab the stain. Washing a maximum load makes the most efficient use of water and energy. Lipstick: moisten with acetone as above, then treat stains with methylated spirits. Remove any residual marks from white fabrics with bleach. Cotton, linen: drum full but not too tightly packed; For heavily soiled laundry, reduce the load size. Red wine: soak in water and detergent, rinse and treat with acetic or citric acid, then rinse. Treat any 9 ENGLISH 132991240.qxd 132991240.qxd 29/09/2003 14:09 Pagina 10 (Nero/Process Black pellicola) residual marks with bleach. Quantity of detergent to be used 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. 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. Tar stains: first treat with stain remover, methylated spirits or benzine, then rub with detergent paste. (*) do not use acetone on artificial silk. Follow the product manufacturers’ instructions on quantities to use. Detergents and additives Use less detergent if: 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. – 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. Follow the product manufacturer’s recommendations on quantities to use and do not exceed the «MAX» mark in the detergent dispenser drawer. 10 29/09/2003 14:09 Pagina 11 (Nero/Process Black pellicola) 4. Select the desired option(s) Operating sequence Depress one or more buttons depending on the selected programme. Before the first wash we recommend that you pour 2 litres of water into the main wash compartment of the detergent drawer in order to activate the ECO valve. Then run a cotton cycle at 60°C, with the machine empty, in order to remove any manufacturing residue from the drum and tub. Pour half a measure of detergent into the main wash compartment and start up the machine. Spin Reduction Quick Half Rinse Hold 1. Place the laundry in the drum Open the door. 5.

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 programme selector dial is not positioned correctly. • The On-Off button has not been depressed. • The machine does not fill: • • • • • The machine fills then empties immediately: • The end of the drain hose is too low. Refer to relevant paragraph in “water drainage” section. • The machine does not empty and/or does not spin: • The drain hose is squashed or kinked. • The Rinse Hold option has been selected. • The drain pump is clogged. • There is water on the floor: • Too much detergent or unsuitable detergent (creates too much foam) has been used. • 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 filter. • Unsatisfactory washing results: • Too little detergent or 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. • The door will not open: • The programme is still running. • The door lock has not been released. • There is water in the drum. 18 The water tap is closed. The inlet hose is squashed or kinked. The filter in the inlet hose is blocked. The door is not properly closed. 29/09/2003 14:09 Pagina 19 (Nero/Process Black pellicola) Problem Possible cause • 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 20 minutes, the laundry is still not evenly distributed in the drum, the machine will not spin.
