12.1 The laundry load
• Divide the laundry in: white, coloured,
synthetics, delicates and wool.
• Obey the washing instructions that are
on the laundry care labels.
• Do not wash together white and coloured items.
• Some coloured items can discolour
with the first wash. We recommend
that you wash them separately for the
first times.
• Button up pillowcases, close zippers,
hooks and poppers. Tie up belts.
• Empty the pockets and unfold the
items.
• Turn inside out multilayered fabrics,
wool and items with painted illustrations.
• Remove hard stains.
• Wash with a special detergent heavy
soil stains.
• Be careful with the curtains. Remove
the hooks or put the curtains in a
washing bag or pillowcase.
• Do not wash in the appliance :
– Laundry without hems or with cuts
– Underwired bras.
– Use a washing bag to wash small
items.
ENGLISH
• A very small load can cause balance
problems with the spin phase. If this
occurs, adjust manually the items in
the tub and start the spin phase again.
12.2 Stubborn stains
For some stains, water and detergent is
not sufficient.
We recommend that you remove these
stains before you put the items in the
appliance.
Special stain removers are available. Use
the special stain remover that is applicable to the type of stain and fabric.
12.3 Detergents and additives
• Only use detergents and additives
specially made for washing machines.
• Do not mix different types of detergents.
• To help the environment, do not use
more than the correct quantity of detergent.
• Obey the instructions that you find on
the on packaging of these products.
• Use the correct products for the type
and colour of the fabric, the programme temperature and the level of
soil.
23
• If you use liquid detergents, do not set
the prewash phase.
• If your appliance has not the detergent dispenser with the flap device,
add the liquid detergents with a dosing ball.
12.4 Water hardness
If the water hardness in your area is high
or moderate, we recommend that you
use a water softener for washing machines. In areas where the water hardness is soft it is not necessary to use a
water softener.
To know the water hardness in your area,
contact your local water authority.
Obey the instructions that you find on
the packaging of the products.
Equivalent scales measure the water
hardness:
• German degrees (°dH).
• French degrees (°TH).
• mmol/l (millimol for each litre - international unit for the hardness of water).
• Clarke degrees.

15.3 Positioning and levelling
• Install the appliance on a flat hard
floor.
• Make sure that carpets do not stop
the air circulation below the appliance.
• Make sure that the appliance does not
touch the wall or other units
• Loosen or tighten the feet to adjust
the level. A correct adjustment of the
appliance level prevents the vibration,
noise and the movement of the appliance when in operation.

• The appliance must be level and stable.
CAUTION!
Do not put cardboard, wood or
equivalent materials below the
appliance feet to adjust the level.
Make sure that there is sufficient
access after the installation for
possible repairs by a qualified
person.
Installation on suspended
flooring
Suspended wooden floors are particularly susceptible to vibration. To help prevent vibration we recommend you place
a waterproof wood panel, at least 15 mm
thick under the appliance, secured to at
least 2 floor beams with screws, the
wood panel must extend beyond the
front feet.
If possible install the appliance in one of
the corners of the room, where the floor
is more stable

• Connect the water inlet hose to the
cold water tap with 3/4 thread.
CAUTION!
Make sure that there are no leaks
from the couplings.
Do not use an extension hose if
the inlet hose is too short. Contact the service centre for the replacement of the inlet hose.
Water-stop device
The inlet hose has a water stop device.
This device prevents water leaks in the
hose because of its natural ageing. The
red sector in the window «A» shows this
fault .
If this occur, close the water tap and
contact the service centre to replace the
hose.

With the plastic hose guide.
ENGLISH

• On the edge of a sink.
• Make sure that the plastic guide cannot move when the appliance drains.
Attach the guide to the water tap or
the wall.
• To a stand pipe with vent-hole.
Refer to the illustration. Directly into a
drain pipe at a height of not less than
60 cm (23.6”) and not more than 100
cm (39.3”). The end of the drain hose
must always be ventilated , i.e. the inner diameter of the drainpipe (min. 38
mm — min. 1.5”) must be larger than
the external diameter of the drain
hose.
• If the end of the drain hose is this (see
the drawing), you can push it directly
into the stand pipe.
Without the plastic hose guide.
• To a sink spigot.
Refer to the illustration. Put the drain
hose in the spigot and tighten it with a
clip. Make sure that the drain hose
makes a loop to prevent that remaining particles go in the appliance from
the sink.

• Directly to a built-in drain pipe in the
room wall and tighten it with a clip.
You can extend the drain hose to
maximum 400 cm. Contact the
