Tips on using your domestic appliance in the most environmentally-friendly and economical
way
Do a full load in your washing machine
To prevent any possible waste of energy, water or detergent we recommend that you put a
full load in your washing machine, not exceed the maximum loads shown below:
Cotton and linen 4,5 kg
Mixed
2 kg
Very delicate
1,5 kg
Wool
1 kg
Up to 50% energy saving can be made with one full load compared to two half load washes
A DEFG
H
BC
L
B
When is prewashing really needed?
Door open button
Only with particularly dirty loads!
Energy savings of 5 to 15% are made by not selecting the prewash option for normal soiled
laundry.
A special safety device prevents the porthole from being opened immediately after the end of
the cycle. Wait for 2 minutes after the wash cycle has finished before opening the door.
Which wash temperature should you choose?
Using stain removers before machine washing reduces the need to wash at temperatures
over 60°C.
Energy savings of up to 50% can be made by using a 60°C wash temperature rather than
90°C
C
Start button
Press to start the selected cycle (according to the selected cycle one indicator lights will go on).
Note: When the START button has been pressed, the appliance can take few seconds
before stars working.
Changing the settings after the programmes has started (Pause)
Once the programme has started the settings can only altered by pressing the relevant buttons.
Release the START button.
The indicator lights time to end will flash, make your changes and press the START button
once more.
If you wish to add or remove items during washing, release the START button and wait 2
minutes until the safety device unlocks the door.
When you have carried out the manoeuvre, close the door, press START button and the
appliance will continue working where it left off.
Cancelling a selected programme
The programme can be cancelled at any time in the following way:
Release the START button
Turn the selector knob first to the OFF position and then away from it
Wait around 5 seconds
The machine will be ready for another programme or to be switched off.
ATTENTION:
The door cannot be opened until the START button has been released

Lights will come on to indicate the wash stage of the programme.
M
N
QUICK WASH button
D
Pressing this button reduces the time of the wash programme by a maximum of 50 minutes
depending on the programme and the temperature selected. The quick wash button can be
used for washing loads of 1 to 4,5 Kg. This option may only be utilised on cottons and
synthetics programmes.
QUICK IRON button
E
The Quick Iron function minimizes creases as much as possible with a uniquely designed
anti-crease system that is tailored to specific fabrics.
MIXED FABRICS - the water is gradually cooled throughout the final two rinses with no
spinning and then a delicate spin assures the maximum relaxation of the fabrics.
DELICATE FABRICS – final two rinses with no spinning and then the fabrics are left in water
until it is time to unload. When you are ready to unload, press the Quick Iron button – this will
drain and spin ready for emptying
RESISTANT FABRICS AND WOOLLENS - at the end of the final rinse, the fabrics are left in
water until it is time to unload. When you are ready to unload, press the Quick Iron button –
this will drain and spin ready for emptying
If you do not want to spin the clothes and activate drain only :
◆ release the START button
◆ turn the selector knob to the OFF position
◆ select programme drain
◆ wait around 5 seconds
◆ switch on the appliance again by pressing the START button
EXTRA RINSE button
F
This function will allow an extra rinse or more water added at the rinse stage – depending on
the programme selected. This is particularly important for avoiding skin irritation from
detergent residues for people with particularly sensitive skin.
The extra rinse button is also recommended when washing heavily soiled fabrics, requiring
the use of a lot of detergent, or when washing items made of towelling, whose fibres have a
greater tendency to retain detergent.
8
G
STAIN BUSTER button
This function which is available on all cotton programmes is very useful for heavy soiling.
The temperature is kept constant throughout all the wash phases and the programme is
extended to ensure an extra deep cleaning performance.
VARIABLE SPIN SPEED selector
H
Can be turned in either direction
The spin stage plays a very important role in preparing the
laundry for efficient drying and your model offers maximum
flexibility to suit all your requirements.
The selector can be turned to reduce the maximum spin
speed, right up to eliminating the spin completely (position ).
In programmes for mixed fibres, synthetics and delicates,
the washing machine automatically lowers the spin speed.
In order not to damage fabrics, it is not possible to increase this spin speeds.
Note: this model is fitted with an electronic device that
checks the load is balanced correctly. If the load is
slightly unbalanced the machine will re-balance it
automatically to carry out the normal spin.
If, after several attempts, balance is not restored, a
reduced spin speed will be used.
If loads are seriously unbalanced the spin stage will be
cancelled.
This helps limit vibration, reduce noise output and
improve the washing machine’s lifespan.

PROGRAMME Selector with OFF position
L
ROTATES IN BOTH DIRECTIONS
The On/Off indicator light will go on
The tables describe the washing programme on the basis of the number or symbol chosen.
Detergent drawer
A
The detergent draw is split into 4 compartments:
- the first, labelled "I", is for prewash detergent
- the second, labelled "II", is for main wash detergent
N.B. To switch off the indicator light
move the programme selector to the
OFF position
cl
If liquid detergents are used, please insert the special
container supplied into the compartment marked “II” in the
detergent drawer. This ensures that the liquid detergent
enters the drum at the right stage of the wash cycle.
Note: some detergents are difficult to remove. For these,
we recommend you use the special dispenser which is
placed in the drum.
- the third, labelled " ", is for bleaching agents.
The machine is programmed to automatically take up the bleach during the first rinse in
cotton cycles.
Note: only put liquid products in the third and fourth
compartments.
- the fourth, labelled "
brighteners etc.
" is for special additives, fabric softeners, fragrances, starch,
The machine is programmed to automatically take up additives during the final rinse stage for
all wash cycles.

11
Programme selector
For the various types of fabrics and various degrees of dirt the washing machine has 4
different programme bands according to: wash cycle, temperature and lenght of cycle (see
table of washing cycle programmes).
1 Resistants Fabrics COTTONS
The programmes have been designed for a maximum wash and the rinses, with spin
intervals, ensure perfect rinsing.
The final spin gives more efficient removal of water.
2 Mixed and Synthetic Fabrics SYNTHETICS
The main wash and the rinse gives best results thanks to the rotation rhythms of the drum
and to the water levels.
A gentle spin will mean that the fabrics become less creased.
3 Special Delicate Fibres DELICATES
This is a new wash cycle which alternates washing and soaking and is particularly
recommended for very delicate fabrics such as Pure Machine Washable Wool. The wash
cycle and rinses are carried out with high water levels to ensure best results.
32 MINUTE RAPID PROGRAMME 50°C
The 32 minute rapid programme allows a complete washing cycle to be carried out in
approximately 30 minutes, with up to a maximum load of 2 kg and a temperature of 50°C.
The maximum quantity of detergent that can be used is marked on the enclosed 32 minute
gauge. The detergent must be placed in the main wash compartment (marked II) in the
detergent dispenser.
Main wash
Automatic Variable Capacity
The washing machine is fitted with an automatic reduction in consumption system (known as
Automatic Variable Capacity).
This system enables the machine to use the amount of water needed to wash and rinse the
laundry in relation to the particular load.
This results in a reduction in the amount of water used and electricity needed to heat it to the
minimum required, without in any way compromising the washing and rinsing performance.
In fact the amount of water and electricity used will always be appropriate for the amount of
washing.
The washing machine therefore ensures you achieve excellent washing results whilst
respecting the environment and saving you money.
4. SPECIALS
HAND WASH 30°C
This washing machine also has a gentle Hand Wash programme cycle. This programme
allows a complete washing cycle for garments specified as “Hand Wash only” on the fabric
care label. The programme has a temperature of 30°C and concludes with 2 rinses and a
slow spin.
SPECIAL “RINSE” PROGRAMME
This programme carries out three rinses with a spin at 800 rpm (which can be reduced or
excluded by using the variable spin speed selector). It can be used for rinsing any type of
fabric, eg. use after hand-washing.
SPECIAL “FAST SPIN” PROGRAMME
Programme “FAST SPIN” carries out a spin at 1300 rpm (which can be reduced by using the
variable spin speed selector).
DRAIN ONLY
This programme drains out the water.

Sorting the laundry
The correct way to wash
-
It is recommended you wash only items which are machine washable with water and
detergent and not dry-clean items.
Preparing the laundry
A) Select the laundry.
-
If you need to wash rugs, bedspreads or other heavy items, it is best not to spin them.
-
Sort the laundry according to fabric type, degree of soiling and wash temperature: Always
follow the wash care advice on the garment label for the most suitable care and
treatment of the laundry
Laundry for hot wash
Loading the laundry
B) Open the porthole.
C) Put the laundry in the washing machine.
Close the porthole again, ensuring that no items of
laundry are obstructing the lock.
Coloured, easy-care materials
Delicates and wool
Wash by hand
Items labelled with the following symbol are not suitable for machine washing:
Dry clean
For very delicate items, such as net curtains, underwear, tights etc., you are advised to
use a laundry net or wash bag.
Woollen items must be labelled with the "Pure New Wool" symbol to be washed in the
machine
, and must also be labelled "non-matting" or "machine washable".
Colour often leaks from new coloured items.
This can then colour other lighter items being washed.
We therefore recommend that coloured items should be washed for the first time
separately.
For future washes, colourfast items can only be washed with whites up to 40°C.
-
Note: when sorting laundry
-
check there are no metal objects in the laundry
(such as paper clips, safety pins, pins, coins
etc...);
button up pillowcases, fasten zips, hook & eye
fasteners, belts and long dressing gown cords;
remove curtain hooks;
pay close attention to the labels on items
if you notice stubborn stains whilst sorting the
laundry, remove them using a special detergent or
a special stain remover.
- We recommend that you do not do a full load of towelling items only as these become too
heavy since they absorb a lot of water.
14
Putting detergent in machine
D) Open the drawer, choose the detergent and put in the
correct amount, according to the manufacturer’s
instructions and the advice on page 18.
Add any other laundry aids (see page 18). Close the
drawer again.
cl
Selecting the wash programme
Note: when setting the programme, make sure that the
Start button is not pressed.
Refer to the programme guide or the programme descriptions on the machine to select the
most suitable programme.
Turning the selector knob the required programme is activated.
When the START button is pressed the machine sets the working sequence in motion.
Warning: If there is any break in the power supply while
the machine is operating, a special memory stores the
selected programme and, when the power is restored, it
continues where it left off.
Check that the tap is turned on and that the discharge
hose is positioned correctly.
When the programme is finished
Wait for the door lock to be released (about 2 minutes after the programme has finished).
Switch off the machine by resetting the on/off button, turn the timer knob for wash programme
on the OFF position and open the door by pressing the door open button. Remove the
laundry. Turn off the tap.

Get the best results from your new Candy machine
To ensure you get the best results from your new Candy machine it
is important to use the right detergent in your everyday wash. There
are many detergents available in the market and making a choice
from the wide range available can often be confusing.
At Candy we regularly test many different types of detergent to
assess which give the best wash results in our machines. We found
only one brand always lives up to our exacting standards and
provides outstanding cleaning across a broad range of dirt and
stains, as well as providing high levels of fabric care. That’s why
Candy gave Ariel their official seal of approval.
FOR YOUR NEW WASHING MACHINE

17
Dosages
Detergents, washing aids and amounts to use
Choice of detergent
General purpose detergents
-
-
Powder detergents, for a thorough wash, with bleaching agent, particularly suitable for
use in hot wash programmes (60°C and over), for heavily soiled and stained laundry.
Liquid detergents, particularly suitable for grease stains, such as greasy skin marks,
cosmetics and oil.
These detergents are not suitable for washing stained laundry, as they do not contain
bleach.
Biological detergents, not all the products available give a really thorough wash.
Special detergents
-
Detergents for coloureds and delicates, without added bleach, also often without any
optical brightening agents, to preserve the colour.
Detergents for a thorough wash, without added bleach or enzymes, particularly suitable
for handling woollen fibres.
Detergents for curtains with optical brightening agents, resistant to light, to prevent
yellowing from sunlight.
Special detergents for programmed use of chemical substances, depending on fabric
type, degree of soiling and water hardness.
Here basic detergents, softeners, bleaches/stain removers can be added separately.
-
Dosage for powder detergent
For normal and low concentration detergents: for normally soiled laundry choose a
programme without prewash.
Put the detergent in compartment “II” of the drawer.
For heavily soiled laundry, choose a programme with prewash.
Put 1/4 of the detergent in compartment “I”, 3/4 in compartment “II” of the drawer.
When using water softeners, first put in the detergent, then add the softener to compartment “II”.
For highly concentrated detergents not in single dose format, follow what is shown on pack
exactly as regards type and amount of dosage.
To avoid the difficulty of checking if the detergent has been taken up, use the dosage aids
provided in the detergent packaging.
Liquid detergent dosage
Additional laundry aids
-
Only use detergents which are suitable for use in a washing machine.
You will obtain the best results from your wash with the minimum use of chemical products
and the best care for your laundry if you take into consideration the degree of soiling as well
as the type of detergent to choose.
The amount of detergent to use depends on:
- water hardness: depending on the hardness of the water and the type of detergent used, it
is possible to reduce the amount of detergent.
- the degree of soiling: it is possible to reduce the amount of detergent used depending on
the degree of soiling.
- amount of laundry: it is possible to reduce the amount of detergent when washing only a
small amount of laundry.
Water softener, means less detergent can be used where water hardness is classed as
hard to very hard.
Prewash substances, for the programmed treatment of stains prior to the main wash.
Using them means the subsequent wash can be at a low temperature or with bleach-free
detergents.
Fabric softener, prevents static build-up in synthetic fabrics and softens fabrics.
If you own a tumble dryer, clothes are softened even without the use of a fabric softener.
Liquid detergents may be used in accordance with the instructions on the relevant
packaging, for all programmes without prewash, by using the special container which is
placed in the drum or, for those models that have it, in the special insert for liquid detergents.
Do not put solvents in the washing machine!
Keep detergents and other laundry products out of children’s reach.
Before pouring in the detergent check that there are no foreign bodies in the detergent
drawer.
Dosage details are usually shown on the detergent packaging. Follow those instructions.

Cleaning and routine maintenance
Do not use alcohol-based scourers and /or thinners on the outside of your washing machine,
just a wipe with a damp cloth will suffice. The washing machine needs very little maintenance:
- Cleaning the drawer compartments.
- Cleaning the filter.
Cleaning the drawer compartments
Even if it is not strictly necessary, it is good to clean the
compartments for bleaching detergents and additives
occasionally.
A) To do this you just need to pull them out firmly, but
without forcing them.
B) Clean everything in the compartment under running
water.
C) Put everything back in its proper place.
Transporting the appliance or long
periods when appliance is not in
use
If the appliance is being transported or is out of use for
long periods in unheated places, all remaining water
must be completely removed from the hoses.
Ensure mains power is off, then unclip the hose and
point it downwards into a basin until all the water has
emptied out.
When finished, repeat the operation in the reverse order.
Cleaning the filter
The washing machine is fitted with a special filter for
handling large deposits which could block the discharge
hose (coins, buttons etc.) and which can, therefore, be
easily retrieved.
We recommend that the filter be cleaned at least once a
month.
The cleaning operation is as follows:
1) Ease off the plinth cover as shown in picture.
2) Loosen the screw which holds the filter in place.
Turn anti-clockwise until it stops in the vertical position.
Remove and clean.
3) After cleaning, replace the filter and lock by
tightening the filter screw. Then follow all procedures described above in reverse order.
4) Insert the inner hinges of the plinth in the special grooves and slide over to the right to fix in
position securely.
Attention: if the filter needs cleaning while there is
washing still in the drum, follow the instructions on the
following page to empty the water. This will prevent
excessive loss of water via the filter.

Power failure.
Fuse blown.
Door open.
Plug it in.
Switch on.
Check.
Check.
Close door.
2. Does not fill with water
See cause 1.
Tap turned off.
Programme selector not correctly
positioned.
Check.
Turn on tap.
Position programme selector
correctly.
3. Water does not drain
away
Kink in discharge hose.
Foreign bodies in filter
Straighten discharge hose.
Examine filter (see pages 20-21)
4. Water on floor around
the washing machine
Leaking gasket between tap and water
inlet hose.
Replace gasket and tighten hose
and tap well.
5. Does not spin
Water has not yet drained away.
"No spin" selected (certain models
only).
Wait a few minutes for machine to
empty.
Reset button or turn "no spin" knob.
6. Machine vibrates a lot
during spin
Washing machine not completely level.
Transit brackets not removed yet.
Load not distributed evenly.
Adjust the special adjustable feet.
Remove transit brackets.
Rearrange the laundry evenly.
7. Door will not open
Two minutes have not elapsed since
the programme finished.
Wait two minutes.
The machine makes a
different noise when
spinning! This is because it
has a manifold motor for
better performance.
Only a small level of water can be
seen in the drum! This is because
new machines do not use much
water, yet achieve the same
standard of washing and rinsing.
22
Note:
The use of environmentally-friendly, phosphate-free detergents can have the following effects:
- waste water from rinsing may be cloudier because of the presence of zeolites held in
suspension, without the rinse performance being adversely affected;
- presence of white powder (zeolites) on laundry after washing, which is not absorbed by
the fabric and does not alter the colour of the fabric.
- The presence of foam in the final rinsing water is not necessarily an indication of poor
rinsing.
- Anionic surfactants used in washing detergent formulae often prove to be difficult to
remove from the laundry itself and, even in small quantities, can still cause considerable
foam production.
- Carrying out more rinse cycles does not serve any purpose in such cases.
