HELPFUL HINTS AND TIPS
SORTING OUT 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
95° or 90°
for normally soiled white cottons and linen (e.g. tea cloths,
towels, tablecloths, sheets...)
60°/50°
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)
40°-30°Cold
for delicate items (e.g. net curtains), mixed laundry including
synthetic fibres and woollens
bearing the label «pure new
wool, machine washable, nonshrink»
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.
MAXIMUM LOADS
Recommended loads are indicated in the
washing programme charts.
General rules:
Downloaded from www.Manualslib.com manuals search engine
• 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 already have
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
acetone1), lay the garment on a soft cloth
and dab the stain.
Lipstick: moisten with acetone as above,
then treat stains with methylated spirits.
Treat any residual marks with bleach.
Red wine: soak in water and detergent,

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.
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 liquid detergents, a programme
without prewash must be selected.
Your appliance incorporates a recirculation
system which allows an optimal use of the
concentrated detergent.
Follow the product manufacturer’s recommendations on quantities to use and do
not exceed the «MAX» mark in the detergent dispenser drawer.
DEGREES OF WATER HARDNESS
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, or from your local authority.
A water softener must be added when
water has a medium-high degree of
hardness (from degree of hardness II).
Follow the manufacturer’s instructions.
The quantity of detergent can then always be adjusted to degree of hardness I (= soft).

DRYING HINTS
PREPARING THE DRYING CYCLE
As a dryer, the appliance 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!
1) do not use acetone on artificial silk
Downloaded from www.Manualslib.com manuals search engine
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,
electrolux 15
bed covers, 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 residue 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.
The detergent and any additives must be
placed in the appropriate compartments of
the dispenser drawer before starting the
wash programme.
If using liquid detergents, a programme
without prewash must be selected.
Your appliance incorporates a re-circulation
system which allows an optimal use of the
concentrated detergent.
Follow the product manufacturer’s recommendations on quantities to use and do
not exceed the «MAX» mark in the detergent dispenser drawer.
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.
Warning! Do not over dry the
laundry in order to avoid creasing
of fabrics or garment’s shrinking.

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.
Important! This appliance must be connected to a cold water supply.
1. Open the porthole and extract the inlet
hose.
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.

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.
• 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.
