6. WASHING HINTS
6.1 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.
6.2 Temperatures
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.
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 a net.
90°C
For normally soiled white cottons
and linen (e.g. teacloths, towels,
tablecloths, sheets...).
6.4 Maximum Loads
60°C
50°C
For normally soiled, colourfast
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.
Synthetics:
40°C
30°C
Cold
6.3 Before Loading The Laundry
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.
Wash bras, pantyhose and other
delicates in a mesh laundry bag, which
you can purchase from your
supermarket.
Make sure that you wash lint collectors
separately from lint producers.
Recommended loads are indicated in the
program charts. General rules:
Cotton, linen:
drum full but not too
tightly packed;
drum no more than
half full;
Delicate fabrics drum no more than
and woollens: one third full.
Washing a maximum load makes the
most efficient use of water and energy.
For heavily soiled laundry, reduce the
load size.
6.5 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 in cold
water. Be careful with rust stains which
are not recent since the cellulose
structure will already have been damaged
and the fabric tends to hole.
19
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.
6.6 Detergents Type And
Quantity Of Detergent
Low sudsing detergent is required for this
washing machine to prevent oversudsing
problems, unsatisfied washing result and
harm to the machine. Low sudsing
detergents designed for front load
washing machines are labelled “Front
Loading”, “high efficiency”, “HE”, such as
Cold Power for Front Loaders or “Matic”.
Do not use wrong types of detergent,
such as Top Loading, Handwash
detergent or Soap-Based products in
your frontload washing machine. This
can result in excessive suds, longer
cycle time, low spin speeds, poor
rinsing and overloading of the motor.
Quantity of detergent to be used
The choice of detergent and use of
correct quantities not only affects your
wash performance, but also helps 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 and quantity of detergent will
depend on ;
type of fabric (delicates, woollens,
cottons, etc.) ;
the colour of clothes ;
size of the load ;
degree of soil ;
wash temperature ; and
hardness of the water used.
Water hardness is classified by so-called
“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.
You may have to try using the detergent
quantity as per manufacturers’
instructions then compare the wash
result to the list below and adjust the
amount of detergent for your future
washes accordingly.
Not enough washing powder causes:
the washload to turn grey,
greasy clothes.
Too much washing powder causes:
sudsing,
reduced washing effect,
inadequate rinsing.
Use less detergent if:
you are washing a small load,
the laundry is lightly soiled,
large amounts of foam during washing.
NOTE:
As “UltraMix (
)” feature enhances
the detergent activation, you can save
by reducing the amount of detergent in
your wash without sacrificing
performance. Please reduce the
detergent dosage if you see foam
covering the glass door completely.

8. CARE AND CLEANING
WARNING! You must DISCONNECT the
appliance from the electricity supply,
before you can carry out any cleaning or
maintenance work.
8.1 External Cleaning
Clean the appliance only with soap and
warm water. Fully dry all the surfaces.
CAUTION! Do not use alcohol,
solvents or chemical products.
8.2 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.
8.3 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.
21
8.4 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 aid cleaning, the top part of the
additive compartment should be
removed.
To run a maintenance wash:
The drum should be empty of laundry.
Select the hottest cotton wash
program.
Use a normal measure of detergent,
must be a powder with biological
properties.
8.5 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.
8.6 Cleaning The Drawer Recess
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 program without any clothes in the
drum.

11.2 Positioning
A
10. Remove the three transit bolts. Use
the key supplied with the appliance.
It is important that your washing
machine stands firm and leveled
on the floor to ensure correct
operation. The appliance must not
be installed behind a lockable
door, a sliding door or a door with
a hinge on the opposite side to
avoid restricting the washing
machine door.
Use a spirit level on the top and
side of the washing machine to
check the levels.
11. Pull out the plastic spacers.
12. Put the plastic caps in the holes.
You can find these caps in the user
manual bag.
1
2
3
If you do not have a spirit level, as a
guide use the edge of a door frame,
cupboard or bench to check that the
washing machine is leveled.
Loosen or tighten the feet to adjust
the level. A correct adjustment of
the appliance level prevents
vibration, noise and the movement
of the appliance when in operation.
31
When the washing machine is
levelled, try to rock it from corner to
corner. If it does rock, adjust the
legs again until it is levelled and
does not rock.
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.
11.4 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.
Never place cardboard, wood or
similar materials under the
machine to compensate for any
unevenness in the floor. Install the
machine on a flat hard floor. 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 cupboard units.
11.3 Water Inlet
Connect the water inlet hose to a
tap with 3/4” BSP thread.
Use the hose supplied with the
washing machine. DO NOT USE
OLD HOSES.
The other end of the inlet hose
which connects to the machine can
be turned in any direction.
Simply loosen the fitting, rotate the
hose and retighten the fitting,
making sure there are no water
leaks.
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.
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. Run it along the floor;
only the part near the drainage
point must be raised.
www.electrolux.com
60 cm
11.5 Electrical Connection
90 cm
32
For the correct functioning of the
machine the drain hose must
remain hooked on the proper
support piece situated on the top
part of back side of the appliance.
This machine is designed to
operate on a 220-240 V,
single-phase, 50 Hz supply.
“An incorrect power supply may
void your warranty.”
Check that your domestic electrical

12.3 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.
