Washing hints
Sorting 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.
Temperatures
for normally soiled white
cottons and linen (e.g. tea
95°
cloths, towels, tablecloths,
sheets...)
for normally soiled, colour
fast garments (e.g. shirts,
night dresses, pyjamas....) in
50°/60° linen, cotton or synthetic
fibres and for lightly soiled
white cotton (e.g.
underwear).
for delicate items (e.g. net
curtains), mixed laundry
(cold) including synthetic fibres and
30°-40° woollens bearing the label
«pure new wool, machine
washable, non-shrink».
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.
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.
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.
Maximum loads
Recommended loads are indicated in
the programme charts.
General rules:
Cotton, linen: drum full but not too
tightly packed;
Synthetics: drum no more than half full;
Delicate fabrics and woollens: drum
no more than one third full.
Washing a maximum load makes the
most efficient use of water and energy.
For heavily soiled laundry, reduce the
load size.
Laundry weights
The following weights are indicative:
bathrobe
1200 g
napkin

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.
Downloaded From WashingMachine-Manual.com Manuals
16 electrolux washing hints
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
acetone (*), lay the garment on a soft
cloth and dab the stain.
Lipstick: moisten with acetone as
above, then treat stains with methylated
spirits. Remove any residual marks from
white fabrics 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 acetone (*),
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.
(*) do not use acetone on artificial silk.
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 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.
Downloaded From WashingMachine-Manual.com Manuals
washing hints electrolux 17
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.
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.
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.

22 electrolux care and cleaning
Care and cleaning
You must DISCONNECT the appliance
from the electricity supply, before you
can carry out any cleaning or
maintenance work.
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.
After each wash
Leave the door open for a while. This
helps to prevent mould and stagnant
smells forming inside the appliance.
Keeping the door open after a wash will
also help to preserve the door seal.
Maintenance Wash
With the use of low temperature washes
it is possible to get a build up of residues
inside the drum.
We recommend that a maintenance
wash be performed on a regular basis.
To run a maintenance wash:
• The drum should be empty of laundry.
• Select the hottest cotton wash
programme.
• Use a normal measure of detergent,
must be a powder with biological
properties.
External cleaning
Clean the exterior cabinet of the
appliance with soap and water only, and
then dry thoroughly.
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.
C0066
To aid cleaning, the top part of the
additive compartment should be
removed.
C0067
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.
Replace the drawer and run the rinse
programme without any clothes in the
drum.

P0038
Cleaning the 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:
• Disconnect the appliance.
• If necessary wait until the water has
cooled down.
• Open the pump door.
P1115
• Remove any objects from the pump
impeller by rotating it.
• Put the cap back on the emergency
emptying hose and place the latter
back in its seat.
P1114
• Place a containfer close to the pump
to collect any spillage.
• Pull out 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
it. Always keep a rag nearby to dry up
spillage of water when removing the
cover.
P1117
• Screw the pump cover fully in.
• Close the pump door.
Warning!
When the appliance is in use and
depending on the programme selected
there can be hot water in the pump.
Downloaded From WashingMachine-Manual.com Manuals
24 electrolux care and cleaning
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 retightened so as to stop
leaks and young children being able to
remove it.
Cleaning the water inlet filter
If your water is very hard or contains
traces of lime deposit, the water inlet
filter may become clogged.
It is therefore a good idea to clean it
from time to time.
Turn off the water tap. Unscrew the
water inlet hose. Clean the filter using a
hard bristle brush. Tighten up the inlet
hose.
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
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. When the bowl is full, put
the cap back on the hose. Empty the
bowl. Repeat the procedure until water
stops flowing out;
• 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.
The dangers of freezing
If the machine is exposed to
temperatures below 0°C, certain
precautions should be taken.
• Turn off the water tap.
• Unscrew the inlet hose.
• 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.
• Screw the water inlet hose back on
and reposition the emergency
emptying hose after having put the
cap on again.
• When you intend to start the machine
up again, make sure that the room
temperature is above 0°C.

Malfunction
The machine vibrates or is
noisy:
Possible cause
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.
●
Spinning starts late or the
machine does not spin:
●
The machine makes an
unusual noise
●
No water is visible in the
drum
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.
The machine is fitted with a
type of motor which makes
an unusual noise compared
with other traditional
motors. This new motor
ensures a softer start and
more even distribution of
the laundry in the drum
when spinning, as well as
increased stability of the
machine.
● Machines based on modern
technology operate very
economically using very little
water without affecting
performance.
