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

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.

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).
Button up pillowcases, close zip fasteners, hooks
and poppers. Tie any belts or long tapes.
Oil based paint: moisten with benzine stain
remover, lay the garment on a soft cloth and dab the
stain; treat several times.
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:
Cotton, linen: drum full but not too tightly packed;
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.
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.

ENGLISH
Washing hints
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.
Follow the product manufacturer’s recommendations
on quantities to use and do not exceed the «MAX»
mark in the detergent dispenser drawer.

Maintenance
Detergent can also accumulate inside the drawer
recess: clean it with an old toothbrush. Refit the
drawer after cleaning.
Bodywork
Clean the outside of the machine with soap and
water only. Rinse with clean water and dry with a
soft cloth.
Important: do not use methylated spirits, solvents
or similar products to clean the bodywork.
Door seal
Check from time to time the door seal and eliminate
eventual possible objects that could be trapped in
the fold.
P0038
Drain pump
The pump should be inspected if
• 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.
Proceed as follows:
P1050
• Disconnect the appliance.
• If necessary wait until the water has cooled down.
• Open the pump door.
Detergent dispenser drawer
After a while, detergents and fabric softeners leave
deposits in the drawer.
Clean the drawer from time to time by rinsing it
under a running tap. To remove the drawer from the
machine, press the button in the rear left-hand
corner.
To facilitate cleaning, the top part of the additive
compartments can be removed.
P1114
P1020
• Place a container close to the pump to collect any
spillage.
• Release the emergency emptying hose, place it in
the container and remove its cap.
• When no more water comes out, unscrew the
pump cover and remove the pump. Always keep a

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 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 cover again and close the door.
P1117
Frost precautions
• Screw the pump cover 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:
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.
Turn off the water tap.
• 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.
Unscrew the hose from the tap.
• Turn the programme selector dial to O.
Clean the filter with a stiff brush.
• Switch the machine off by depressing ON/OFF
button.
Screw the hose back onto the tap.
• Screw the water inlet hose back on and reposition
the emergency emptying hose after having put the
cap on again.
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.
P1090
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
device avoiding that part of the detergent remains
unused at next washing.

Emergency emptying out
• Remove any objects from the pump impeller by
rotating it.
Something not working?
Problems which you can resolve yourself.
During machine operation it is possible that one of the following alarm codes appears on the display and at the
same time the light
starts to flash:
- E10 : problem with the water supply
- E20 : problem with water draining
- E40 : door open
Once the problem has been eliminated, press the START/PAUSE button to restart the programme. If after all
checks, the problem persists, contact your local Service Centre.
Problem
Possible cause
• The machine does not start up:
• The door is not firmly closed. (E40)
• 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 START/PAUSE button has not been
depressed.
• The DELAY START option has been selected.
• 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. (E20)
• The option
or
has been selected.
• The drain filter is clogged. (E20)
• 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 drain pump has not been properly screwed on
after cleaning.
• The cap on the emergency emptying hose has not
been replaced after cleaning the pump.
• 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 water tap is closed. (E10)
The inlet hose is squashed or kinked. (E10)
The filter in the inlet hose is blocked. (E10)
The door is not properly closed. (E40)
Possible cause
• The door will not open:
•
•
•
•
The programme is still running.
The door lock has not yet released.
The water level is above the bottom edge of the door.
The machine is heating the water.
• Spinning starts late or the
laundry is not spun enough:
• 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 6 minutes, the
laundry is still not evenly distributed in the drum,
the machine will spin at a lower speed or 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.
• 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.
