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).
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.
1) do not use acetone on artificial silk

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.

Problem
Possible cause/Solution
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 10 minutes, the laundry
is still not evenly distributed in the drum, the machine will not spin. In this
case, redistribute the load manually and select the spin programme.
• Redistribute the laundry.
The load is too small.
• Add more items, redistribute the load manually and then select the spinning
programme.

Care and cleaning
Warning! You must DISCONNECT the appliance
from the electricity supply, before you can carry out
any cleaning or maintenance work.
Cleaning the drawer recess
Having removed the drawer, use a small brush to
clean the recess, ensuring
that all washing powder
residue is removed from
the upper and lower part of
the recess.
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.
External cleaning
Replace the drawer and run the rinse programme without any clothes in the drum.
Clean the exterior cabinet of the appliance with soap and
water only, and then dry thoroughly.
Drain pump
Cleaning the dispenser drawer
The washing powder and additive dispenser drawer
should be cleaned regularly.
Remove the drawer by
pressing the catch downwards and by pulling it
out. Flush it out under a
tap, to remove any traces
of accumulated powder.
The pump should be inspected regularly and particularly
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:
• disconnect the appliance.
• if necessary wait until the water has cooled down.
To aid cleaning, the top
part of the additive compartment should be removed.

to dry up spillage of water
when removing the cover.
Remove any objects from
the pump impeller by rotating it.
Warning! When the appliance is in use and
depending on the programme selected there can be
hot water in the pump. Never remove the pump cover
during a wash cycle, always wait until the appliance has
finished the cycle, and is empty. When replacing the
cover, ensure it is securely re-tightened so as to stop leaks
and young children being able to remove it.
Cleaning the water inlet filters
Important! If the appliance doesn't fill, takes long to fill
with water, the starting button blinks yellow or the display
(if available) shows the relevant alarm (see chapter "What
to do if..." for more details), check if the water inlet filters
are blocked .
To clean the water inlet filters:
• Turn off the water tap.
• Unscrew the hose from
the tap.
• Clean the filter in the
hose with a stiff brush.
Replace the filter into the pump paying attention to insert it properly. When done, screw it firmly.

• Place the end of the inlet hose in a bowl placed on the
floor, open the emergency emptying cap of the filter
and let water drain out.
• Refit the emergency emptying cap into the filter and
screw the water inlet hose back.
• When you intend to start the machine up again, make
sure that the room temperature is above 0°C.
Emergency emptying out
• Unscrew the hose from the machine. Keep a rag

• Screw the hose back to the machine and make sure
the connection is tight.
• Turn on the water tap.
Frost precaution
If the machine is exposed to temperatures below 0°C,
certain precautions should be taken.
• Turn off the water tap.
• Unscrew the inlet hose.
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. Remove the emergency emptying cap from the filter. The water should drain by
gravity into the bowl. When the bowl is full, refit the
emergency emptying cap into the filter. Empty the bowl.
Repeat the procedure until water stops flowing out;
• clean the pump if necessary as previously described;
• screw the pump cover again and close the door.
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.
Installation

Water inlet
Warning! This appliance must be connected to a
cold water supply
Caution! Before connecting up the appliance 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
Unscrew the three bolts.
Slide out the relevant plastic spacers.
Caution! Do not use the hose from your previous
appliance to connect to water supply.
Connect the hose to a tap
with a 3/4” thread. Always
use the hose supplied with
the appliance.
Fill the smaller upper hole and the two large ones with
the corresponding plastic plug caps supplied in the bag
containing the instruction booklet.
Positioning
Install the machine on a flat hard floor. Make sure that air
circulation around the machine is not impeded by carpets,
rugs etc. Check that the machine does not touch the wall
or other kitchen units. Level the washing machine by
raising or lowering the feet. The feet may be tight to adjust
as they incorporate a self locking nut, but the machine
MUST be level and stable.
Any necessary adjustment can be made with a spanner.
Accurate levelling prevents vibration, noise and displacement of the machine during operation. Never place cardboard, wood or similar materials under the machine to
compensate for any unevenness in the floor.
If necessary, check the
setting with a spirit level.

The other end of the inlet hose which connects to the
appliance can be turned as showed in the picture.
Do not place the inlet hose downwards. Angle the hose
to the left or right depending on the position of your
water tap. Set the hose correctly by loosening the ring
nut. After positioning the inlet hose, be sure to tighten
the ring nut again to prevent leaks.
Caution! 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.
Water drainage

Hooked over the edge of a
sink using the plastic hose
guide supplied with the
machine.
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.
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 ventilated , i.e. the inside diameter of
the drain pipe must be larger than the outside diameter
of the drain hose. The drain hose must not be kinked.
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
Information on the electrical connection is given on the
rating plate on the inner edge of the appliance door.
Check that your domestic electrical installation can take
the maximum load required, also taking into account any
other appliances in use.
Caution! The manufacturer does not accept any
responsibility for damage or injury through failure
to comply with the above safety precaution.
Caution! Connect the machine to an earthed socket.

Ecological hints
To save water, energy and to help protect the environment,
we recommend that you follow these tips:
• Normally soiled laundry may be washed without prewashing in order to save detergent, water and time (the
environment is protected too!).
• The machine works more economically if it is fully
loaded.
• With adequate pre-treatment, stains and limited soiling
can be removed; the laundry can then be washed at a
lower temperature.
• Measure out detergent according to the water hardness, the degree of soiling and the quantity of laundry
being washed.
