frayed or torn articles and treat stains such as paint,
ink, rust, and grass before washing. Underwired bras
must NOT be machine washed.
Any objects such as coins, safety pins, nails, screws,
stones or any other hard, sharp material can cause
extensive damage and must not be placed into the
machine.
Garments which have been in contact with volatile
petroleum products should not be machine washed.
If volatile cleaning fluids are used, care should be
taken to ensure that the fluid is removed from the
garment before placing in the machine.
Wash small items such as socks, laces, washable
belts etc in a washing bag or pillow case as it is
possible for such items to slip down between the tub
and the inner drum.
Only use the advised quantities of fabric softener.
Damage to the fabric can ensue if you over-fill.
Refer to the manufacturer’s recommendations of

chemicals such as dry cleaning fluid.These are of a
volatile nature and could cause an explosion.
Only tumble dry items which have been washed in
water or require airing.
Plastic detergent dispensers should not remain in the
drum during the drying cycle, as the plastic used is
not designed to withstand the heat. If you wish to
wash-through-to-dry you should use the
conventional detergent dispenser drawer.
Leave the porthole door slightly ajar between washes
to preserve the door seal.

Your New Washer-Dryer
Your new washer-dryer fitted with the Electrolux “NEW JET SYSTEM”, meets all modern
requirements for effective treatment of laundry with low water, energy and detergent
consumption.
Even small loads are washed “economically” because the amount of water used is regulated
automatically according to the load and type of fabric.
●
●
●
●
Automatic cooling of the wash water to 60°C
before draining, with the 95°C programme. This
reduces thermal shock to fabrics, helping to prevent
creasing.
The special WOOL/HANDWASH programme with its
new delicate wash system treats your woollens with
extreme care.
The anti-unbalance device ensures that the washing
machine remains stable when spinning.
The two drying programmes will give your wash
that soft, relaxed feel whatever the weather.
In the interest
of the environment
●
●
●
Ecological hints
●
To save water and energy and help protect the
environment, we recommend that you follow these
hints:
● Adjust the quantity of detergent according to the
hardness of your water supply, the amount of
laundry and the degree of soiling.
● Select an “economy” programme for lightly soiled
laundry.
● A programme without prewash is sufficient for
normally soiled laundry.
● The machine works more economically if it is fully
loaded both for washing and drying cycles.
● With adequate pre-treatment, stains and limited
soiling can be removed; the laundry can then be
washed at a lower temperature.
● Always load well spun laundry. The higher the spin
speed, the lower the electricity consumption and the
shorter the drying times.

Important
Your machine is fitted with a balance control device, which ensures the machine is stable during the spin.
If the wash load appears not to have been spun sufficiently at the end of the wash cycle, it is because it is not evenly
distributed in the drum, the balance control device may have operated. It will therefore be necessary to redistribute the
wash load manually and select a spin programme. For more detailed information see the section headed "Something
Not Working".

Load the laundry loosely alternating large items with
small ones.
Sort the laundry according to the type of fabric,
colour-fastness and how dirty it is.
Avoid washing unhemmed or torn items as they may
unravel.
Before washing, empty all pockets of small objects
which may have been left inside (coins, keys, screws
etc). as these could damage the drain pump.
When washing curtains, remove the hooks.
Close poppers and zips and fasten loose buttons.
It is essential to wash new coloured items separately
when washing for the first time.
When washing fabrics requiring different wash
temperatures together, always select the lowest
temperature.
White items should not be washed with coloured
items.
Very small items (handkerchiefs, ribbons, socks etc)
should be washed in a washing bag or a pillow case.
Use a good quality detergent suitable for automatic
washing machines.
Use the correct quantities of detergent.
For wool, use gentle detergent only in small
quantities.
Bleach is very corrosive; it should be used with care
and kept out of reach of children.
●

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 presoak product or biological detergent.
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.
Do not leave the damp laundry load in a heap too
long before drying.
Avoid drying dark clothes with light coloured fluffy
items such as towels as these can attract the fluff.
If you overdry the laundry, besides wasting energy,
any subsequent ironing may become more difficult
because the fabric could be heavily crumpled.
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.
Particularly delicate items such as synthetic curtains,
woollen and silk, garments with metal inserts, nylon
stockings, bulky garments such as anoraks,
bedcovers, quilts, sleeping bags and duvets must not
be machine dried.
Garments padded with foam-rubber or materials
similar to foam-rubber must not be machine dried;
they represent a fire hazard.
Also, fabrics containing residues 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.
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
Important: As a dryer, the machine works on the
condensation principle.
Therefore, the water taps must be open and the
drain hose must drain water into a sink or into
the drain pipe, even during the drying cycle.
14
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
your own personal choice.
WHITES
TRADITIONAL LIQUIDS
TRADITIONAL POWDERS
Pour the powder directly into the dispenser drawer. Do
not sprinkle powder onto clothes in the machine drum.
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.
We recommend the Ariel product
range which is biological and
designed to provide excellent
cleaning and stain removal even
at low temperatures.
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.
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.
COLOURS
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.
* If you use a dosing device in a washer dryer,
please ensure the dosing device/ball is removed
before carrying out a drying programme.
DELICATE ITEMS
FABRIC CONDITIONERS
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.
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.
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 colours.
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.
15
Wash Care Symbols
Wash care labels inside garments recommend how to launder your clothes with the best results. The care labelling
code is in line with care labelling used in the rest of Europe. The symbols used make it easy to select the correct

When using liquid detergent and a prewash programme,
place the detergent into the correct compartment in the
dispenser drawer, after the prewash has finished.
For best results, always use the dispenser drawer for
dispensing detergents and liquid additives.
Once the dispenser has been filled, close it by pushing it
in gently. This is particularly important if you are using

Maintenance and Cleaning
Before any maintenance or cleaning is carried out you
must DISCONNECT the appliance from the electricity
supply.
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.
P0010
P0009
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 programme
without any clothes in the drum.
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.
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 (such as Ariel Futur).
P0038
Cleaning the filter
The water drain filter
A clean filter is important for the correct functioning of
the machine, and should therefore be cleaned after every
washing and drying programme.
Place a container under the filter 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 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.
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.
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.
To aid cleaning, the top part of the additive
compartment should be removed.
P0037
20
The dangers of freezing
Unscrew and remove the filter.
Clean carefully under a fast running tap.
If the machine is exposed to temperatures below 0°C,
certain precautions should be taken.
● Turn off the water tap.
● Unscrew the inlet hose.
● Unhook the drain hose from the rear support and
position the end of this hose and that of the inlet
hose in a bowl. Run the draining programme.
● Disconnect the appliance.
● Screw the inlet hose and reposition the drain hose.
● When you intend to start the machine up again,
make sure that the room temperature is above 0°C.
P0040
P0039
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.
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;
● Unscrew and remove the filter;
● place a bowl on the floor. The water should drain by
gravity into the bowl. When the bowl is full, empty
the bowl. Repeat the procedure until water stops
flowing out;
● clean the filter if necessary as previously described;
● screw the filter again.
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.

Something Not Working
Certain problems are due to lack of simple maintenance or oversights, which can be solved easily without calling out
an engineer. Before contacting your local Service Force Centre, please carry out the checks listed below.
IMPORTANT: if you call out an engineer to a fault listed below, or to repair a fault caused by incorrect use or
installation, a charge will be made even if the appliance is under guarantee.
During machine operation it is possible that the “End” light starts to flash and an alarm code appears on the display:
- E10 : problem with the water supply
- E20 : problem with water draining
- E40 : door open
Once the problem has been eliminated, press the Start/Pause button to restart the programme. If after all checks, the
problem persists, contact your local Service Force Centre.

The inlet hose may be squashed or kinked. (E10 )
The door has not been closed. (E40)
The end of the drain hose is too low.
The end of the drain hose is submerged in water.
There is no vent in the end of the drain hose.
The drain hose may be squashed or kinked. (E20)
The Rinse Hold or Night Cycle option has been selected.
The drain filter may be blocked. (E20)
The drain hose extension is not correct. Follow the instructions for
connecting to the waste.
The drainage system pipes are blocked. (E20)
The wash load is unbalanced: redistribute the clothes inside the drum to
allow the machine to spin.
Too much detergent or unsuitable detergent has been used (creates too
much foam).
Check whether there are any leaks from one of the inlet hose fittings. It
is not always easy to see this as the water runs down the hose; check to
see if it is damp.
The drain hose may be damaged or not securely positioned.
The detergent dispenser drawer or recess is clogged.
The drainage system pipes are blocked.
Too little detergent or unsuitable detergent has been used. An
insufficient amount of detergent leaves the laundry looking grey and
causes lime scale to form.
Stubborn stains have not been treated prior to washing
The correct wash/temperature programme has not been selected.
Too much laundry has been placed in the drum.

Symptom
Possible causes
The machine vibrates when spinning
●
●
●
●
●
The door will not open
●
●
●
The internal packing has not been removed.
The machine is in contact with the wall or furniture.
The machine is not level.
The washing load is badly distributed in the drum.
Maybe there is very little laundry in the drum.
The water level is above the bottom edge of the door.
The machine is heating the water or drying the clothes.
The drum is turning.
Spinning starts late or the machine
does not spin
●
The electronic unbalance detection device has cut in because the
laundry is not evenly distributed in the drum. The laundry is
redistributed by reverse rotation of the drum. This may happen several
times before the unbalance disappears and normal spinning can resume.
If, after 10 minutes, the laundry is still not evenly distributed in the
drum, the machine will not spin. In this case, redistribute the load
manually and select the spin programme.
The machine makes an unusual
noise
●
The machine is fitted with a type of motor which makes an unusual
noise compared with other traditional motors. This new motor ensures
a softer start and more even distribution of the laundry in the drum
when spinning, as well as increased stability of the machine.
No water is visible in the drum
●
Machines based on modern technology operate very economically
using very little water without affecting performance.
The machine does not dry or does
not dry properly

off a reasonable amount of water to flush out any debris
that may have collected in the pipes.
In the interest of the environment
Washer-dryers 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 water authority.
Levelling
Level the washer-dryer 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 and stable
(check diagonally).
P1051
Any necessary adjustment can be made with a spanner.
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.

b) Hinges
To mount the hinges it is necessary to drill two holes
(dia. 35 mm, depth 12.5-14 mm depending on the depth
of door furniture) on the inner side of the door. The
distance between the holes hobs fixing centres must be
416 mm.
The distance (B) from upper edge of the door to the
centre of the hole depends on the adjacent furniture's
dimensions.
The required dimensions are given in the picture C.
The hinges will be fixed to the door by means of screws
for wood (2-Fig. B) supplied with the appliance.
When installing the appliance into the kitchen furniture
ensure, if possible, the hoses are placed in either of the
two recesses on the back of the appliance. This will help
to prevent the hoses from becoming kinked or trapped.
Picture AB.
c) Mounting the door
Fix the hinges (1) to the machine by means of the
M5x15 screws (3-Fig. B). The hinges can be adjusted to
compensate for possible uneven thickness of the door.
To align the door perfectly it is necessary to loosen the
screw (3-Fig. B), adjust the door and tighten the screw
again.
Preparation and assembly of the door
The machine is originally pre-arranged for the assembly
of a door opening from right to left.
In this case it is sufficient to screw in the hinges (1) and
the counter-magnet (6) provided with the appliance, at
the right level (Fig. B).

Recommendations regarding the
construction and fitting of a base
when the installation requires an
integrated appliance to be raised
H
With the appliance installed adjust all four feet ensuring
the machine is stable, and a clearance of approximately
5 mm is left between the top of the machine and the
underside of the worktop.
Where the appliance has been raised by mounting onto
a wooden base provided by the installer. The material
used to construct the base should have a non slip
surface, be water repellent and if possible be one solid
piece.
If it is not possible to use one solid piece, due to the
additional height required, ensure that any additional
strips of timber are glued and screwed to the underside
of the base (see Fig. F).
5 mm Hardwood strip
40 mm
100 mm
A final check for stability should be carried out with the
machine on spin with a load, this will identify the need
for any further fine adjustment to the feet.
A strip of beading approximately 605 mm W, x 5 mm
H, x 25 mm D must be screwed down into the base
directly in front of the machine’s feet, this will provide
additional security.
If required an additional door magnet, part number
1242394-00/3 and disc, part number 1242393-00/5 are
available from spare parts.
