Your New Washing Machine
Your new washing machine meets all modern requirements for effective treatment of laundry with low water,
energy and detergent consumption.
• The programme selector dial combines the function
of programme and temperature selection, making it
easier to set the programme.
In the interest
of the environment
• The programme progress display shows the delay
start, the functioning of the machine and the end of
the programme .
• Materials marked with the symbol
recyclable.
• The special wool programme with its new delicate
wash system treats your woollens with extreme
care.
• Check with your local Council or Environmental
Health Office to see if there are facilities in your
area for re-cycling this appliance.
• The Eco valve allows total use of detergent and
reduces water consumption so saving energy.
• When the appliance is to be scrapped, cut off the
power supply cable and make the door lock device
unusable to prevent young children from being
trapped inside.
• The special Handwash programme with its new
delicate wash system treats your delicate items
with extreme care.
are
• Help to keep your country tidy - use authorised
disposal sites for your old appliance.
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. For more detailed information see the section
headed "Something Not Working".

Washing Hints
Do NOT overload the machine. 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.

• 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.

• 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.

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.

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.
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

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.

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
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.

Warning
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 Force Centre.
The joining piece must have an internal diameter of
18mm.
The machine should NOT be placed on deep
pile carpeting.
Note
Please ensure that when the appliance is installed it
is easily accessible for the engineer in the event of a
breakdown.
Important
• Before connecting the machine to new pipework or
to pipework that has not been used for some time,
run off a reasonable amount of water to flush out
any debris that may have collected in the pipes.
• For the correct functioning of the machine the drain
hose must be hooked on the proper support piece
situated on the top of the back side of the
appliance.
In the interest of the environment
Washing machines 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 washing machine 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.
