Level the appliance by raising or lowering the
feet.
The appliance MUST be level and stable on a
flat hard floor. If necessary, check the setting
with a spirit level. Any necessary adjustment
can be made with a spanner.
Loosen the ring nut to angle the hose to the
left or right depending on the position of your
water tap. Do not place the inlet hose
downwards. After positioning the inlet hose,
be sure to tighten the ring nut again to prevent leaks.
Water drainage
Accurate levelling prevents vibration, noise
and displacement of the appliance during operation.
Repeat the levelling action, if the appliance is
not level and stable.
Firstly form a hook in the end of the drain
hose using the plastic hose guide supplied
with the appliance .
The end of the drain hose can be positioned
in four ways:
• Hooked over the edge of a sink using
the plastic hose guide.

Tie the plastic hose guide to the tap with a
string to prevent that the drain hose unhooks
when the appliance is emptying.
• Onto a sink outlet spigot.
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.
If your drain hose
looks like this (see
beside) you do not
require the “U”
piece”. Just push the
hose firmly in to the
standpipe.
• Directly to a built-in drain pipe in the
room wall.
Push the drain hose onto the spigot and secure with a clip, ensure a loop is formed in
the drain hose to prevent waste from the sink
entering the appliance.
If the outlet spigot has not been used before,
remove any blanking plug that may be in
place.
• Directly into a drain pipe at a height of
not less than 60 cm and not more than
100 cm.
The drain hose may be extended to a maximum of 4 metres. An additional drain hose
and joining piece is available from your Local
Centre.

Before Loading The Laundry
Important! 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 any hooks
(e.g curtains).
• 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.
• Rub particularly soiled areas with a special
detergent or detergent paste.
• Treat curtains with special care.
• Wash the socks and the gloves inside the
bag or a net.
Remove stubborn stains before 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.
Open the door by carefully pulling the
door handle outwards
Load the laundry
Place the laundry in
the drum, one item at
a time, shaking them
out as much as possible.
Maximum Loads
Recommended loads are indicated in the
«Washing Programmes».
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.

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 (40°C

What to do if…
The appliance does not start or stops during
operation. Certain problems are due to lack of
simple maintenance or oversights, which can
be solved with the help of the indications described in the charts, without calling out an engineer.
During appliance operation it is possible that
the red pilot light of the button 9 flashes, the
Fault code and malfunction

• Close firmly the door.
Door open
The appliance does not start or stops during
operation without any visible alarm.
Malfunction
Before contacting your local Service Centre,
please carry out the checks listed below.
Possible cause / Solution
The appliance does not
start:
The plug is not properly inserted in the power socket.
• Insert the plug into the power socket.
There is no power at the socket.
• Please check your domestic electrical installation.
The main fuse has blown.
• Replace the fuse.
The programme selector dial is not correctly positioned and the button 9 has

The end of the drain hose is too low.
• Refer to paragraph in "Water drainage" in chapter "Installation".
The appliance does not
empty and/or does not
spin:
An option or a programme that ends with the water still in the tub or a that
eliminates all the spinning phases has been selected.
• Select the draining or spinning programme.
The laundry is not evenly distributed in the drum.
• Redistribute the laundry.
There is water on the
floor:
Too much detergent or unsuitable detergent (creates too much foam) has
been used.

Malfunction
Possible cause / Solution
The door will not open:
The programme is still running.
• Wait the end of washing cycle.
The door lock has not been released.
• Wait until the door lock is released.
Open the door when the pilot light 10 is off.
There is water in the drum.
• Select drain or spin programme to empty out the water.
The appliance vibrates
noisily:
The transit bolts and packing have not been removed.
• Check the correct installation of the appliance.
The appliance is not levelled correctly.
• Adjust the feet.
The laundry is not evenly distributed in the drum.
• Redistribute the laundry.
Maybe there is very little laundry in the drum.
• Load more laundry.
Spinning starts late or
the appliance 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 appliance will not spin. In this case, redistribute the load manually and select the spin programme.
• Load more laundry.
The load is too small.
• Add more items, redistribute the load manually and then select the spinning
programme.
No water is visible in
the drum:
Appliances based on modern technology operate very economically using very
little water without affecting performance.
Unsatisfactory washing
results
Too little detergent or unsuitable detergent has been used.
• Increase the detergent quantity or use another one.
Stubborn stains have not been treated prior to washing.
• Use commercial products to treat the stubborn stains.
The correct temperature was not selected.
• Check if you have selected the correct temperature.
Excessive laundry load.
• Reduce the laundry load.
The appliance makes an
unusual noise
The appliance 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 appliance.
After completing these checks, switch on the
appliance and press the button 9 to restart the
programme.
If the malfunction shows again, contact your
Service Centre. The necessary data for the
service centre is on the rating plate. We recommend that you write the data here:
