EXTRA RINSE button
F
Thanks to the new electronic system it is possible to effect a new special rinse cycle. The
addition of more water and the new action combined of cycles of rotation of the drum with
load and unloading of water allow the laundry to be perfectly rinsed. This function has been
developed for people with delicate and sensitive skin, for which the least residue of
detergent can cause irritations or allergies. It is advisable to use this function for children’s
items, for washing very dirty items and for washing of towels whose fibers mostly have the
tendency to hold detergent.
This option is not available on SPECIALS programmes excluding the “Sports Wear”
programme.
G
FAST IRON button
The “Fast Iron” function minimizes creases as much as possible with a uniquely designed
anti-crease system that is tailored to specific fabrics.
MIXED FABRICS - the water is gradually cooled throughout the final two rinses with no
spinning and then a delicate spin assures the maximum relaxation of the fabrics.
DELICATE FABRICS – final two rinses with no spinning and then the fabrics are left in water
until it is time to unload. When you are ready to unload, press the “Fast Iron” button – this will
drain the load.
WOOLLENS & HAND WASH - after the final rinse the fabrics are left in water until it is time
to unload and the button indicator is blinking.
When you are ready to unload, press the "Fast Iron" button, this will drain and spin ready for

Programme selector
For the various types of fabrics and various degrees of dirt the washing machine has different
programme bands according to: wash cycle, temperature and length of cycle (see table of
washing cycle programmes).
RESISTANTS FABRICS
The programmes have been designed for a maximum wash and the
rinses, with spin intervals, ensure perfect rinsing.
The final spin gives more efficient removal of water.
SPECIAL "ECO" PROGRAMME
This special programme has been developed to allow you to obtain
the best washing performance, even at full load, as the 60°C Cotton
programme (the normal cycle) but with the advantage of an energy
saving due to 40°C temperature, instead of 60°C.

MIXED AND SYNTHETIC FABRICS
The main wash and the rinse provides the best results due to the
rotation rhythms of the drum and to the water levels.
A gentle spin will mean that the fabrics become less creased.
Synth’s
SPECIAL DELICATE FIBRES
This is a new wash cycle which alternates washing and soaking and is
particularly recommended for very delicate fabrics. The wash cycle
and rinses are carried out with high water levels to ensure best results.

SPORTS WEAR
The washing machine has a unique "Sports Wear" programme.
It is specially designed to wash mixed sportswear fabrics that cannot
be washed on hotter programmes and is designed to remove the soil
and staining created by participation in sports activities. This
programme starts with a cold prewash that breaks down and loosens
any excess dirt and then washes at a cool 30°C, rinses and spins
slowly for the best care of your heavily soiled, delicate garments.

DAILY WASH 59'
This specially designed programme maintains the high quality wash
performance whilst greatly reducing the wash time.
The programme is designed for a maximum load of 3 kg with a
temperature of 60°C and concludes with 2 rinses and a high speed
spin sequence.
Daily 59'
DAILY WASH 40°C – FAST PROGRAMMES
By maintaining exceptional washing performance, these programmes
allow you to know in advance the necessary time for your everyday
laundry. In fact, this washing machine is equipped with 2 daily rapid
programmes at 40°C, that were developed for lightly soiled fabrics and
medium or little load.
DAILY WASH 40°C – FAST 44'
A complete washing cycle (wash, rinse and spin) able to wash in
approximately 44 minutes:
This programme can be also used during Bleaching (see table of washing
cycle programmes).
- a maximum load of 3,5 kg;
- lightly soiled fabrics (cotton and mixed fabrics).
SPECIAL “SPIN” PROGRAMME
Programme “SPIN” carries out a spin at 800 rpm.

Daily 29'
Automatic Variable Capacity
The washing machine is fitted with an automatic reduction in consumption system (known as
Automatic Variable Capacity).
This system enables the machine to use the amount of water needed to wash and rinse the
laundry in relation to the particular load.
This results in a reduction in the amount of water used and electricity needed to heat it to the
minimum required, without in any way compromising the washing and rinsing performance.
In fact the amount of water and electricity used will always be appropriate for the amount of
washing.
The washing machine therefore ensures you achieve excellent washing results whilst
respecting the environment and saving you money.
Detergent drawer
P
The detergent drawer is split into 3 compartments:
- the compartment labelled "I" is for prewash detergent;
- the compartment labelled " " is for special additives,
fabric softeners, fragrances, starch, brighteners etc;
- the compartment labelled "II" is for main wash
detergent.
If liquid detergents are used, please insert the special
container supplied into the compartment marked “II” in the
detergent drawer. This ensures that the liquid detergent
enters the drum at the right stage of the wash cycle.
This special container must be inserted into the
compartment marked "II" in the detergent drawer, also
when you wish to use the "RINSE" programme as
BLEACHING cycle.
Note: only put liquid products in the compartment
labelled “
”. The machine is programmed to
automatically take up additives during the final rinse
stage for all wash cycles.

Dosages
Detergents, washing aids and amounts to use
Choice of detergent
General purpose detergents
-
-
Powder detergents, for a thorough wash, with bleaching agent, particularly suitable for
use in hot wash programmes (60°C and over), for heavily soiled and stained laundry.
Liquid detergents, particularly suitable for grease stains, such as greasy skin marks,
cosmetics and oil.
These detergents are not suitable for washing stained laundry, as they do not contain
bleach.
Biological detergents, not all the products available give a really thorough wash.
Special detergents
-
Detergents for coloureds and delicates, without added bleach, also often without any
optical brightening agents, to preserve the colour.
Detergents for a thorough wash, without added bleach or enzymes, particularly suitable
for handling woollen fibres.
Detergents for curtains with optical brightening agents, resistant to light, to prevent
yellowing from sunlight.
Special detergents for programmed use of chemical substances, depending on fabric
type, degree of soiling and water hardness.
Here basic detergents, softeners, bleaches/stain removers can be added separately.
-
Dosage for powder detergent
For normal and low concentration detergents: for normally soiled laundry choose a
programme without prewash.
Put the detergent in compartment “II” of the drawer.
For heavily soiled laundry, choose a programme with prewash.
Put 1/4 of the detergent in compartment “I”, 3/4 in compartment “II” of the drawer.
When using water softeners, first put in the detergent, then add the softener to compartment “II”.
For highly concentrated detergents not in single dose format, follow what is shown on pack
exactly as regards type and amount of dosage.
To avoid the difficulty of checking if the detergent has been taken up, use the dosage aids
provided in the detergent packaging.
Liquid detergent dosage
Additional laundry aids
-
Only use detergents which are suitable for use in a washing machine.
You will obtain the best results from your wash with the minimum use of chemical products
and the best care for your laundry if you take into consideration the degree of soiling as well
as the type of detergent to choose.
The amount of detergent to use depends on:
- water hardness: depending on the hardness of the water and the type of detergent used, it
is possible to reduce the amount of detergent.
- the degree of soiling: it is possible to reduce the amount of detergent used depending on
the degree of soiling.
- amount of laundry: it is possible to reduce the amount of detergent when washing only a
small amount of laundry.
Water softener, means less detergent can be used where water hardness is classed as
hard to very hard.
Prewash substances, for the programmed treatment of stains prior to the main wash.
Using them means the subsequent wash can be at a low temperature or with bleach-free
detergents.
Fabric softener, prevents static build-up in synthetic fabrics and softens fabrics.
If you own a tumble dryer, clothes are softened even without the use of a fabric softener.
Liquid detergents may be used in accordance with the instructions on the relevant
packaging, for all programmes without prewash, by using the special container which is
placed in the drum or, for those models that have it, in the special insert for liquid detergents.
Do not put solvents in the washing machine!
Keep detergents and other laundry products out of children’s reach.
Before pouring in the detergent check that there are no foreign bodies in the detergent
drawer.
Dosage details are usually shown on the detergent packaging. Follow those instructions.

Useful advice for users
Main wash
Sorting the laundry
Tips on using your domestic appliance in the most environmentally-friendly and economical
way
-
It is recommended you wash only items which are machine washable with water and
detergent and not dry-clean items.
Do a full load in your washing machine
-
If you need to wash rugs, bedspreads or other heavy items, it is best not to spin them.
To prevent any possible waste of energy, water or detergent we recommend that you put a
full load in your washing machine, do not exceed the maximum loads shown below:
Cotton and linen 6 kg
Mixed
2 kg
Very delicate
2 kg
Wool
1,5 kg
Up to 50% energy saving can be made with one full load compared to two half load washes
-
Sort the laundry according to fabric type, degree of soiling and wash temperature: Always
follow the wash care advice on the garment label for the most suitable care and
treatment of the laundry
Laundry for hot wash
Coloured, easy-care materials
Delicates and wool
Wash by hand
When is prewashing really needed?
Items labelled with the following symbol are not suitable for machine washing:
Only with particularly dirty loads!
Energy savings of 5 to 15% are made by not selecting the prewash option for normal soiled
laundry.
Which wash temperature should you choose?
Using stain removers before machine washing reduces the need to wash at temperatures
over 60°C.
Energy savings of up to 50% can be made by using a 60°C wash temperature rather than
90°C
Dry clean
For very delicate items, such as net curtains, underwear, tights etc., you are advised to
use a laundry net or wash bag.
Woollen items must be labelled with the "Pure New Wool" symbol to be washed in the
machine, and must also be labelled "non-matting" or "machine washable".
Colour often leaks from new coloured items.
This can then colour other lighter items being washed.
We therefore recommend that coloured items should be washed for the first time
separately.
For future washes, colourfast items can only be washed with whites up to 40°C.
-
Note: when sorting laundry
-
check there are no metal objects in the laundry
(such as paper clips, safety pins, pins, coins
etc...);
button up pillowcases, fasten zips, hook & eye
fasteners, belts and long dressing gown cords;
remove curtain hooks;
pay close attention to the labels on items
if you notice stubborn stains whilst sorting the
laundry, remove them using a special detergent or
a special stain remover.
- We recommend that you do not do a full load of towelling items only as these become too
heavy since they absorb a lot of water.

The correct way to wash
Cleaning and routine maintenance
Preparing the laundry
A) Select the laundry.
Do not use alcohol-based scourers and /or thinners on the outside of your washing machine,
just a wipe with a damp cloth will suffice. The washing machine needs very little maintenance:
- Cleaning the drawer compartments.
- Cleaning the filter.
Loading the laundry
B) Open the porthole.
C) Put the laundry in the washing machine.
Close the porthole again, ensuring that no items of
laundry are obstructing the lock.
Putting detergent in machine
D) Open the drawer, choose the detergent and put in the
correct amount, according to the manufacturer’s
instructions and the advice on page 16.
Add any other laundry aids (see page 16). Close the
drawer again.
Selecting the wash programme
Refer to the programme guide to select the most suitable programme.
Activate the programme by turning the selector knob.
Wait for the "END" indicator light to flash.
Set the temperature using the temperature control knob.
Press additional function buttons (if required).
Check that the tap is turned on and that the discharge
hose is positioned correctly.
Press the "Start/Pause" button.
When the "Start/Pause" button is pressed the machine
sets the working sequence in motion.
The programme carries out with the programme selector
stationary on the selected programme till cycle ends.
Warning: If there is any break in the power supply while
the machine is operating, a special memory stores the
selected programme and, when the power is restored, it
continues where it left off.
When the programme is finished
The indicator light “END” will go on.
Wait for the door lock to be released (about 2 minutes after the programme has finished).
Switch off the machine by turning the programme selector to the “OFF” position.
Open the door and remove the laundry. Turn off the tap.
20
Cleaning the drawer compartments
Even if it is not strictly necessary, it is good to clean the
compartments for detergents and additives occasionally.
A) To do this you just need to pull them out firmly, but
without forcing them.
B) Clean everything in the compartment under running
water.
C) Put everything back in its proper place.
Cleaning the filter
The washing machine is fitted with a special filter for
handling large deposits which could block the discharge
hose (coins, buttons etc.) and which can, therefore, be
easily retrieved.
We recommend that the filter be cleaned at least
once a month.
The cleaning operation is as follows:
1) Ease off the plinth cover as shown in picture.
2) Use the base as a tray to collect leftover water in
filter.
3) Loosen the screw which holds the filter in place.
Turn the filter anti-clockwise until it stops in the
vertical position.
Remove and clean.
4) After cleaning, replace the filter and lock by
tightening the filter screw. Then follow all procedures
described above in reverse order.
Attention: if the filter needs cleaning while there is
washing still in the drum, follow the instructions on the
following page to empty the water. This will prevent
excessive loss of water via the filter.
21
Transporting the appliance or long
periods when appliance is not in
use
If the appliance is being transported or is out of use for
long periods in unheated places, all remaining water
must be completely removed from the hoses.
Ensure mains power is off, then unclip the hose and
point it downwards into a basin until all the water has
emptied out.
When finished, repeat the operation in the reverse order.
Investigating malfunctions
What might be the cause of…
Defects you can remedy yourself
MALFUNCTION CAUSE
1. Does not work on any
programme
Plug not in socket.
Not switched on.
Power failure.
Fuse blown.
Door open.
Plug it in.
Switch on.
Check.
Check.
Close door.
2. Does not fill with water
See cause 1.
Tap turned off.
Programme selector not correctly
positioned.
Check.
Turn on tap.
Position programme selector
correctly.
3. Water does not drain
away
Kink in discharge hose.
Foreign bodies in filter
Straighten discharge hose.
Examine filter (see pages 21-22)
4. Water on floor around
the washing machine
Leaking gasket between tap and water
inlet hose.
Replace gasket and tighten hose
and tap well.
5. Does not spin
Water has not yet drained away.
"No spin" selected (certain models
only).
Wait a few minutes for machine to
empty.
Reset button or turn "no spin" knob.
6. Machine vibrates a lot
during spin
Washing machine not completely level.
Transit brackets not removed yet.
Load not distributed evenly.
Adjust the special adjustable feet.
Remove transit brackets.
Rearrange the laundry evenly.
7. Door will not open
Two minutes have not elapsed since
the programme finished.
Wait two minutes.
The machine makes a
different noise when
spinning! This is because it
has a manifold motor for
better performance.
22
REMEDY
Only a small level of water can be
seen in the drum! This is because
new machines do not use much
water, yet achieve the same
standard of washing and rinsing.
23
Note:
The use of environmentally-friendly, phosphate-free detergents can have the following effects:
- waste water from rinsing may be cloudier because of the presence of zeolites held in
suspension, without the rinse performance being adversely affected;
- presence of white powder (zeolites) on laundry after washing, which is not absorbed by
the fabric and does not alter the colour of the fabric.
- The presence of foam in the final rinsing water is not necessarily an indication of poor
rinsing.
- Anionic surfactants used in washing detergent formulae often prove to be difficult to
remove from the laundry itself and, even in small quantities, can still cause considerable
foam production.
- Carrying out more rinse cycles does not serve any purpose in such cases.
