Washing hints
Sorting the laundry
Maximum loads
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.
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.
Temperatures
90° or 95°
50°/60°
30°-40°-Cold
for normally soiled white
cottons and linen (e.g. tea
cloths, towels, tablecloths,
sheets...)
for normally soiled, colour fast
garments (e.g. shirts, night
dresses, pyjamas....) in linen,
cotton or synthetic fibres and
for lightly soiled white cotton
(e.g. underwear).
for delicate items (e.g. net
curtains), mixed laundry
including synthetic fibres and
woollens bearing the label
«pure new wool, machine
washable, non-shrink».
Before loading the laundry
Never wash whites and colours 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.

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.
132960380.qxd
22/09/2008

Pagina

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.
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.
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.

Care and cleaning
IMPORTANT!
You must DISCONNECT the appliance from
the electricity supply, before you can carry out
any cleaning or maintenance work.
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.
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.
Cleaning the drawer recess
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.
To aid cleaning, the top part of the additive
compartment should be removed.
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.
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.
● Place a container 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.

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.
Screw the pump cover
fully in.
● Close the pump door.
●
IMPORTANT!
When the appliance is in use and depending
on the programme selected there can be hot
water in the pump.
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.
18
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.
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.
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;
● Refit filter and close the door.

Sprung wooden floors are particularly
susceptible to vibration. For advice, consult a
builder. If possible, always place the machine
on a solid floor.
Special conditions
If the floor is carpeted or covered with crumbly
or soft material, insert a rigid support base
under the feet to prevent noise, vibration or
displacement. The base should protrude a few
centimetres beyond the edges of the machine.
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.
In the interest of the environment
Washing machines 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.
