Washing and Drying 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
90°/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
Cold/30° curtains), mixed laundry
including synthetic fibres and
/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.
Avoid drying dark clothes with light
coloured fluffy items such as towels as
these can attract the fluff.
Remove the laundry when the appliance has finished drying.
To avoid a static charge when drying is
completed, use either a fabric softener
when you are washing the laundry or a
fabric conditioner specifically for tumble
dryers.
Particularly delicate items such as synthetic curtains, woollen and silk, garments with metal inserts, nylon stockings, bulky garments such as anoraks,
bedcovers, quilts, sleeping bags and
duvets must not be machine dried.
Garments padded with foam-rubber or
materials similar to foam-rubber must
not be machine dried; they represent a
fire hazard.
Also, fabrics containing residues of setting lotions or hair sprays, nail solvents
or similar solutions must not be
machine dried in order to avoid the formation of harmful vapours.
For drying, follow the indications given
on the manufacturer’s labels.
May be tumble dried
Drying at high temperature

Important
As a dryer, the machine works on the
condensation principle.
Therefore, the water tap must be
open and the drain hose must drain
water into a sink or into the drain
pipe, even during the drying cycle.
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.

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 have already 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.

washing hints and drying hints electrolux 21
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 washer-dryer
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.
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.
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 socalled “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.

Preparing the drying cycle
As a dryer, the machine works on the
condensation principle.
Therefore, the water tap must be
open and the drain hose must drain
water into a sink or into the drain
pipe, even during the drying cycle.
Attention!
Before starting the drying programme,
reduce the loads of washed laundry, in
order to obtain good performances.
Laundry not suitable for drying
• Particularly delicate items such as
synthetic curtains, woollen and silk, garments with metal inserts, nylon stockings, bulky garments such as anoraks,
bedcovers, quilts, sleeping bags and
duvets must not be machine dried.
• Avoid drying dark clothes with light
coloured fluffy items such as towels as
these can attract the fluff.
• Remove the laundry when the
appliance has finished drying.
• To avoid a static charge when drying
is completed, use either a fabric softener when you are washing the laundry
or a fabric conditioner specifically for
tumble dryers.
• Garments padded with foam-rubber
or materials similar to foam-rubber must
not be machine dried; they represent a
fire hazard.
• Also, fabrics containing residues of
setting lotions or hair sprays, nail solvents or similar solutions must not be
machine dried in order to avoid the formation of harmful vapours.
Garment labels
For drying, follow the indications given
on the manufacturer’s labels:
May be tumble dried
Drying at high temperature
Drying at reduced temperature
Do not tumble dry.
Drying cycle duration
The drying time may vary depending on:
• speed of the final spin
• dryness degree required (iron dry,
store dry)
• type of laundry
• weight of the load size
The average drying time for a timed
drying are indicated in the «Drying programmes» chapter. The experience will
help you to dry your laundry in a more
suitable way, according to the different
fabrics. Take note of the duration drying
time of the already performed cycles.
Additional drying
If the laundry is still damp at the end of
the drying programme, select a short
drying cycle again.
Attention! Do not over dry the
laundry in order to avoid creasing
of fabrics or garment’s shrinking .

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.
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. Clean all parts with water.
C0067
External cleaning
Clean the exterior cabinet of the
appliance with soap and water only,
and then dry thoroughly.

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.
P1231
Turn off the water tap. Unscrew the
water inlet hose. Clean the filter using a
hard bristle brush. Refit the inlet hose.
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.
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;
• 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.

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.
Carefully level by screwing the
adjustable feet in or out. The machine
MUST be level and stable.
If necessary, check the setting with a
spirit level.
Any necessary adjustment can be made
with a spanner.
Water inlet
An inlet hose is supplied and can been
found inside the machine drum. Do not
use the hose from your previous
machine to connect to the water supply.
1. Open the porthole and extract the
inlet hose.
2. Connect the hose with the angled
connection to the machine.
Do not place the inlet hose
downwards. Angle the hose to the
left or right depending on the
position of your water tap.

3. 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.
4. Connect the hose to a tap with a 3/4”
thread. Always use the hose supplied
with the appliance.
Water drainage
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.
P0351
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-stop device
The inlet hose is provided with a water
stop device, which protects against
damage caused by water leaks in the
hose which could develop due to
natural ageing of the hose. This fault is
shown by a red sector in the window
«A». Should this occur, turn the water
tap off and refer to your Service Centre
to replace the hose.

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.

The drain hose may be extended to a
maximum of 4 metres. An additional
drain hose and joining piece is available
from your local Service Centre.
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.
Connect the machine to an earthed
socket.
Permanent connection
In the case of a permanent connection
it is necessary that you install a double
pole switch between the appliance and
the electricity supply (mains), with a
minimum gap of 3 mm between the
switch contacts and of a type suitable
for the required load in compliance with
the current electrical regulations. The
switch must not break the yellow and
green earth cable at any point. This
operation must be performed by a
qualified electrician.
The manufacturer does not accept
any responsibility for damage or
injury through failure to comply
with the above safety precaution.
The power supply cable must be
easily accessible after installing the
machine.
Should the appliance power supply
cable need to be replaced, this
must be carried out by a Service
Centre.

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.
