INSTALLATION
Unpacking
Positioning
Before starting the machine up, the packing must be
removed as follows.
You are advised to keep all the packaging for re-use in
case the machine is to be transported again.
Using a spanner unscrew
and remove the rear right
bolt. Lay the machine
gently on its back, making
sure that the hoses are
not squashed.
Your new washing machine has been designed to be
permanently plumbed in to your home’s water supply
and drainage system. However, if this is not possible, it
may be connected to suitable existing taps with the drain
hose discharging into a sink.
The appliance has two inlet hoses, hot and cold, with
female 3/4” BSP thread connectors. If this connection is
not compatible with the plumbing of the existing installation, a variety of connectors are available from good
hardware stores and plumbers merchants to suit most
domestic plumbing. Any alteration to your existing plumbing must be carried out by a competent person, or qualified plumber.

Remove the polystyrene block from the bottom of the
machine.
Carefully slide out the right polythene bag (1), removing
it toward the centre of the machine.
Repeat the operation for the left polythene bag (2),
removing it toward the centre of the machine.
Remove the polystyrene
base, set the machine
upright and unscrew the
two remaining rear bolts.
P0256
P0001
The inlets on the back of the appliance are colour coded,
blue for cold and red for hot.
Before connecting the
hoses be sure to fit the
mesh filters supplied as
per diagram.
P0002
Slide out the 3 plastic spacers and plug the 3 holes with
the 3 plastic plugs which you can find at the back of the
machine.
P0003
If only a cold water supply is available, connect the two
hoses to a cold water outlet by means of a «Y» connection piece.
Installation should comply with local water authority and
building regulations’ requirements.
The appliance must be given a separate cold water supply and not be connected to a mixer tap, a single outlet
water heater or a booster pump. A minimum water pressure of 7 psi is required for safe operation of the appliance.
If you cannot make the cold water connection direct from
the rising mains, you may be able to operate the appliance from your cold water storage system.
There should be a minimum distance of 5.02m (161/2 ft)
between the appliance’s inlet and the bottom of the tank.
There will be sufficient pressure for the hot water supply
from the hot water cylinder if the height between the
appliance’s inlet and the bottom of the cold water storage cistern (not between the appliance and hot water
cylinder) is at least 2.74m (9ft).
Set the hoses correctly by
loosening the ring nuts.
After positioning the inlet
hoses, be sure to tighten
the ring nuts again to prevent leaks.
P0021

Water drainage
If you intend the drain hose from the machine to empty
into a sink, make sure that the sink is empty and that the
plug hole is not blocked.
If the machine is permanently plumbed in, hook the end
of the hose into a standpipe installed for the purpose.
The standpipe must have an internal diameter of at least
40 mm (1 1/2") in order that there is an air gap between
the drain hose and the standpipe. Make sure, that it is
designed in such a way, that the end of the drain hose
cannot be covered with water.
Warning
The machine should NOT be placed on deep pile carpeting.
Note
Please ensure that when the appliance is installed it is
easily accessible for the engineer in the event of a breakdown.
All plumbing and electrical work required to install this
appliance must be carried out by competent persons or
qualified plumbers or electricians.

Important
Before connecting up the machine 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 in the pipes.
Whether discharging into a sink or a standpipe check
that the end of the drain hose is neither too high nor too
low. The top of the curve in the hose’s end should be no
more than 90 cm (35.4”), and no less than 60cm (23.6”)
above floor level.
Washing machines and dishwashers should be connected to the FOUL drainage system, the water will then be
taken to a sewage works for treatment before being
discharged safely into a river.
It is essential that these appliances are not connected to
the surface water drainage system as this water is
discharged directly into a river or stream and may cause
pollution.
If you require any further advice please contact your
local authority drainage department.
Levelling
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.
Any necessary adjustment
can be made with a spanP0850
ner. Accurate levelling
prevents vibration, noise and displacement of the machine during operation.
Some vibration is inevitable, especially if mounted on a
wooden floor.
Sprung wooden floors are particularly susceptible to
vibration. For advice, consult a builder. If possible,
always place the machine on a solid floor.

Washing hints
■
Some stains such as fruit, wine, grass, rust etc. are
difficult to remove and should be treated before
washing with specific products, which can be found in
most household shops. In some cases it may help to
soak the stain before washing with a special pre-soak
product or biological detergent.
■
Only wool marked «Pure New Wool - washable, preshrunk» can be washed in the machine using the
wool programme; other types of wool should be
washed by hand or dry cleaned.
■
If you have used the machine to wash, rinse or spin
only non-colour fast garments, there may be dye left
in the sump. To ensure any subsequent wash is not
contaminated with the dye, select and carry out a
rinse and spin programme, without any garments, to
ensure that any dye is removed from the sump.
■
Once you have finished using the machine, you are
advised to unplug it and turn off the water taps.
Do NOT overload the machine. Weigh the laundry the
first few times you use the appliance.
The average weights of the most common items are
listed below as a guide:

USE OF DETERGENT AND ADDITIVES
Which detergent?
And in which form?
To ensure you obtain the best wash results from your
appliance, it is important to use the right detergent in
your everyday wash, and only detergents recommended
for use in automatic machines.
To maintain the appearance of your clothes and household textiles and to make them last longer you should
use different types of detergent for different washes,
whether for whites, colours or delicates.
Not only are there different types of detergent, but they
are also available in different forms. Whether you chose
a powder or liquid in traditional or compact form is to
own personal choice.
Whites
Traditional Liquids
We recommend the Ariel product
range which is biological and
designed to provide excellent
cleaning and stain removal even
at low temperatures.
Liquid can be placed in the main wash compartment of
the detergent drawer marked with the symbol
, start
the machine immediately upon placing the detergent in
the dispenser drawer.
Alternatively the detergent is measured into the specially
designed dosing device* which should be placed on top
of the laundry, and at the back of the machine drum.
Non Biological
If you prefer to use a non
biological detergent, which does
not contain enzymes we
recommend Fairy. Fairy provides
good cleaning and stain removal.
Coloureds
For coloured items you should use a
detergent which is designed to clean
while maintaining the original colour.
Ariel Color does not contain bleach
and therefore helps to preserve
colours.
Delicate Items
When washing delicates such as
woollens, you should use a product
which is specially designed to care for
fine fabrics.
Dreft Automatic is suitable for woollens
and other delicates.
Laundry Bleach
For additional stain removal you may
wish to use a product such as Ace
Gentle Bleach which is used in addition
to your chosen detergent. Ace is suitable for all washable fabrics including
silks, woollens and coloureds.
Traditional Powders
Pour the powder directly into the dispenser drawer. Do
not sprinkle powder onto clothes in the machine drum.
Compact Powders and Liquids
Compact detergents (or concentrates as they are also
known) are available in liquid or powder form, and generally require a smaller dosage. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions to ensure the most economical usage.
Pour the detergent directly into the dispenser drawer, or
alternatively measure the detergent into the specially
designed dosing device* which should be placed on top
of the laundry, and at the back of the machine drum.
*
If you use a dosing device in a washer dryer,
please ensure the dosing device/ball is removed
before carrying out a drying programme.
Fabric Conditioners
These are ideal for improving ‘softness’, and also reduce
static cling on synthetics and make ironing easier. They
are available in two types:
For example Lenor liquid fabric
softener, for use in the washing
machine/washer dryer. The
liquid fabric softener should be
poured into the compartment
marked with the symbol
.
Follow the manufacturer’s dosage
instructions and never exceed the
MAX level.
Bounce conditioning sheets for use
in a tumble dryer. We recommend
the conditioning sheets are pinned
(using a safety pin) to an article
of laundry and placed in the
tumble dryer.

MAINTENANCE AND CLEANING
Before any maintenance or cleaning is carried out you
must DISCONNECT the appliance from the electricity
supply.
Descaling
The water we normally use 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
The dangers of freezing
If the machine is exposed to temperatures below 0°C,
certain precautions should be taken.
■
Turn off the water taps.
■
Select a wash programme and run for a few seconds.
■
Unscrew the inlet hoses.
■
Unhook the drain hose from the rear support and
position the end in a bowl. Run the draining programme for a few seconds.
■
When you intend to start the machine up again,
make sure that the room temperature is above 0°C.
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.
External cleaning
Clean the exterior cabinet of the appliance with soap and
water only, and then dry thoroughly.
Cleaning the dispenser drawer
From time to time the washing powder and additive
dispenser drawer should be cleaned.
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.
P0202
P0203
Cleaning the drawer recess
P0038
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
for a few minutes without
any clothes in the drum.
15
Cleaning the filter
The water inlet filters
The water drain filter
A clean filter is important for the correct functioning of the
machine, and should therefore be cleaned after every
wash.
Open the filter door and
place a container underneath to catch any spillage. If the filter is blocked
and the machine is unable
to drain you will need to
drain the water manually
from the machine at this
stage. To do this, unhook
P0011
the drain hose from the
standpipe or sink and hold the end of the hose over a
bowl on the floor. The water should drain by gravity into
the bowl. When the bowl is full, hook the hose back up
and empty the bowl. Repeat the procedure until water
stops flowing out.
Unscrew and remove the filter.
P0132
P0133
Clean carefully under a
fast running tap.
P0040
Warning
When the appliance is in use and depending on the programme selected there can be hot water in the filter.
Never remove the filter during a wash cycle, always wait
until the appliance has finished the cycle, and is empty.
When replacing the filter, ensure it is securely retightened so as to stop leaks and young children being able
to remove it.
16
If your water is very hard or contains traces of lime deposit, the water inlet filters may become clogged.
It is therefore a good idea to clean them from time to
time.
Turn off the water taps.
Unscrew the water inlet hoses.
Remove and clean the filters using a hard bristle
brush. Replace the filters
and tighten up the inlet
hoses.
