Ecological hints • The symbol on the product or on its packaging indicates that this product may not be treated as household waste. Instead it shall be handed over to the applicable collection point for the recycling of electrical and electronic equipment. By ensuring this product is disposed of correctly, you will help prevent potential negative consequences for the environment and human health, which could otherwise be caused by inappropriate waste handling of this product. For more detail information about recycling of this product, please contact your local city office, your household waste disposal service or the shop where you purchased the product. 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. • A programme without prewash is sufficient for normally soiled laundry. • 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, so saving energy. How do we help to protect the environment? We use recycled paper! 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, 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.

Weigh the laundry the first few times you use the appliance. • For wool, use gentle detergent only in small quantities. The average weights of the most common items are listed below as a guide: • 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 pre-soak product or biological detergent. 1000g = 1 kg Sheet 700-1000 g Pillow case 100-200 g Tablecloth 400-500 g Serviette 50-100 g Tea towel 70-120 g Linen hand towel 100-150 g Towelling hand towel 150-250 g Towelling bath towel 700-1000 g Bath robe • Only wool marked “Pure New Wool - washable, preshrunk” can be washed in the machine using the wool programme; other types of wool should be washed in Handwash programme. • 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. 1000-1500 g Man’s shirt 200-300 g Apron 150-200 g • Once you have finished using the machine, you are advised to unplug it and turn off the water tap. • 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. 13 New_12108_14108.qxp 12/12/2005 5:41 PM Page 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. TRADITIONAL POWDERS Pour the powder directly into the dispenser drawer. Do not sprinkle powder onto clothes in the machine drum. TRADITIONAL LIQUIDS WHITES 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. COLOUREDS 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. * DELICATE ITEMS 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. If you use a dosing device in a washer dryer, please ensure the dosing device/ball is removed before carrying out a drying programme. FABRIC CONDITIONERS 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 coloureds. Bounce conditioning sheets for use in a tumble dryer. We recommendthe conditioning sheets are pinned(using a safety pin) to an articleof laundry and placed in the tumble dryer. 14 New_12108_14108.qxp 12/12/2005 5:41 PM Page 15 Wash Care Symbols Wash care labels inside garments recommend how to launder your clothes with the best results.

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. C0066 C0067 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. P1050 P0038 Cleaning the pump Maintenance Wash The pump should be inspected regularly if 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. • 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. 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). Proceed as follows: • Disconnect the appliance. • If necessary wait until the water has cooled down. • Open the pump door. External cleaning Clean the exterior cabinet of the appliance with mild washing up liquid and water only, and then dry thoroughly. Cleaning the dispenser drawer P1114 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. • 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. 18 New_12108_14108.qxp 12/12/2005 5:41 PM Page 19 • 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. Turn off the water tap. Unscrew the water inlet hose. Clean the filter using a hard bristle brush. Tighten up the inlet hose. P1090 P1115 The dangers of freezing • Remove any objects from the pump impeller by rotating it. 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. • Put the cap back on the emergency emptying hose and place the latter back in its seat. • When you intend to start the machine 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 and avoid the detergent remains being wasted. P1117 • Screw the pump cover fully in. • Close the pump door. 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; • screw the pump cover again and close the door. Warning 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. 19 New_12108_14108.qxp 12/12/2005 5:41 PM Page 20 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 one od the following alarm codes appears on the display and the “End” light starts to flash: - E10 : problem with the water supply - E20 : problem with water draining - E40 : door open Once the problem has been eliminated, press the START button to restart the programme. If after all checks, the problem persists, contact your local Service Force Centre. Problem Possible causes The machine does not start • • • • • • The door has not been closed. (E40) The plug is not properly inserted in the power socket. There is no supply at the socket. The main fuse or the fuse in the plug has blown. The Start button has not been pressed. The DELAY has been selected. The machine does not fill • • • • The water tap is closed. (E10 ) The filter in the inlet hose is blocked. (E10 ) The inlet hose may be squashed or kinked. (E10 ) The door has not been closed. (E40) The machine fills then empties immediately • • • 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 machine does not empty and/or does not spin • • • • The drain hose may be squashed or kinked. (E20) The option has been selected. The drain pump may be blocked. (E20) The drain hose extension, if fitted, is not correct. Follow the instructions for connecting to the waste. The drainage system pipes are blocked. The wash load is unbalanced: redistribute the clothes inside the drum to allow the machine to spin. • • There is water on the floor • • • • • • Too much detergent or unsuitable detergent has been used (creates too much foam). Check whether there are any leaks from 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. The cap on the emergency emptying hose has not been replaced after cleaning the pump. 20 New_12108_14108.qxp 12/12/2005 5:41 PM Page 21 Problem Possible causes Unsatisfactory washing results: • Too little detergent or unsuitable detergent has been used. • Stubborn stains have not been treated prior to washing. • The correct temperature was not selected. • Excessive laundry load. The machine vibrates or is noisy: • The transit bolts and packing have not been removed. • The support feet have not been adjusted. • The laundry is not evenly distributed in the drum. • Maybe there is very little laundry in the drum. The door will not open: • The programme is still running. • The door lock has not been released. • There is water in the drum. The door could be opened only when «Door openable» message appears in the display and the door locked light goes off. 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. Water is not visible in the machine. The machine, which is the result of modern technology, runs in a very economical way with low water consumption. Performance is nevertheless excellent. The machine makes an unusual noise. The machine is fitted with a commutator motor which improves machine performance.
