The following warnings are provided in the interests of overall safety. You must read them carefully before
installing or using the appliance.
• Use only the recommended quantities of fabric
softener. An excessive amount could damage the
laundry.
Installation
• 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.
• 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.
• Always check that water has emptied out before
opening the door. If not, drain the water following
the instructions in the instruction book.
• Any electrical work required to install this appliance
must be carried out by a qualified electrician.
• Always unplug the appliance and shut the water
tap after use.
• Any plumbing work required to install this
appliance must be carried out by a qualified
plumber.
General safety
• 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.
• 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.
Use
• Never pull the power supply cable to remove the
plug from the socket; always take hold of the plug
itself.
• This appliance is designed for domestic use. It
must not be used for purposes other than those for
which it was designed.
• During high temperature wash programmes the
door glass may get hot. Do not touch it!
• Only wash fabrics which are designed to be
machine washed. Follow the instructions on each
garment label.
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.
• Do not overload the appliance. Follow the
instructions in the instruction book.
• Make sure that all pockets are empty. Objects such
as coins, safety pins, pins and screws can cause
extensive damage.
• The packaging components (e.g. plastic film,
polystyrene) can be dangerous to children - danger
of suffocation! Keep them 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.
• Keep all detergents in a safe place out of children’s
reach.
• 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.

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.

The drain hose must not be kinked.
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.
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.
P1118
Water drainage
For a correct functioning of the machine the
drain hose must remain hooked on the proper
support piece situated on the top part of the back
side of the appliance.
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. 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.
Electrical connection
This machine is designed to operate on a 220-230 V,
single-phase, 50 Hz supply.
Check that your domestic electrical installation can
take the maximum load required (2.2 kW), also
taking into account any other appliances in use.
Connect the machine to an earthed socket.
The manufacturer declines any responsibility
for damage or injury through failure to comply
with the above safety precaution.
Should the appliance power supply cable
need to be replaced, this should be carried
out by our Service Centre.
P0022
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.
The power supply cable must be easily
accessible after installing the appliance.
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

This new machine meets all modern needs 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 from 95° to 60°C before draining will prevent old drain pipes
from being deformed and will reduce thermal shock to fabrics, helping to prevent creasing.
• The special wool programme with its new delicate wash system treats your woollens with extreme care.
• The unbalance control device ensures the machine is stable during the spin.
• 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:
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

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.

The pump should be inspected if
Clean the outside of the machine with warm water
and a detergent used to handwash dishes. Rinse
with clean water and dry with a soft cloth.
• the machine does not empty and/or spin
• the machine makes an unusual noise during
draining due to objects such as safety pins, coins
etc. blocking the pump.
Important: do not use methylated spirits, solvents or
similar products to clean the bodywork.
Proceed as follows:
• Disconnect the appliance.
• If necessary wait until the water has cooled down.

• Remove any objects from the pump impeller by
rotating it.
6. 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;
• Put the cap back on the emergency emptying hose
and place the latter back in its seat.
• clean the pump if necessary as previously
described;
• replace the emergency emptying hose in its seat
after having plugged it;
• screw the pump again and close the door.
P1117
7. Frost precautions
• Screw the pump fully in.
• Close the pump door.
If the machine is installed in a place where the
temperature could drop below 0°C, proceed as
follows:
5. Water inlet filter
• Remove the plug from the socket.
• 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.
• 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.
Turn off the water tap.
Unscrew the hose from the tap.
• Screw the water inlet hose back on and reposition
the emergency emptying hose after having put the
cap on again.
Clean the filter with a stiff brush.
Screw the hose back onto 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.
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.
This will activate the ECO valve avoiding that part of
the detergent remains unused at next washing.

Something not working?
Problems which you can resolve yourself.
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.

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. If at the end of the
programme the laundry is not spun enough,
redistribute the load manually and select the spin
programme.
• Spinning starts late or the
laundry is not spun enough:
Water is not
visible in the machine. The machine,
which is the result of modern technology, runs
in a very economical way with low water
consumption. Performance is
nevertheless excellent.
The machine makes an unusual
noise. The machine is fitted with a commutator
motor which improves machine
performance.
