Detergent drawer
Main wash section
This compartment should have detergent placed in it (you should also
put a water softening agent in this section, if you use one). The
detergent will be added to the drum at the start of the main wash
program.
Conditioner section
This compartment should be used for liquid conditioners (fabric
softener, starch). They will be added to the wash load during the final
rinse.
Pre wash section
This compartment should have detergent placed in it, if you are going
to select a pre-wash before the main wash cycle.
Preparing the wash cycle
Preparing your garments for washing
o Your washing should be sorted out, according to
the fabric type and the wash care symbol that is
printed on the garment’s wash care label (see
separate section on wash care symbols).
o Your washing should also be sorted out
according to the degree of soiling.
11
o Check all pockets on a garment to make sure that they are
empty.
o Remove any detachable metal items (badges,
paperclips, safety pins etc).
o Zips should be closed, duvet covers and
pillow cases should be buttoned up and any loose straps should
be tied up. This will help to prevent other garments from getting
damaged during the wash.
o Woollens and knitted coloured fabrics should be turned inside out
before being washed in the appliance.
o Small delicate items (tights, baby socks) should be placed in
either a washing net or a zipped pillow case.
o Curtains should be handled with particular care. All plastic hooks
or metal strips must be removed before being washed in the
appliance.
o Coloured items and whites should be washed
in separate wash cycles.
o New garments often contain an excess of
dye, therefore it is advisable to wash them separately for their
first wash.
o Garments should be unfolded and shook out before being placed
inside the machine.

o The wash care symbols should be used to help you to select the
most suitable wash program. They will also help you to sort your
laundry into different loads, depending on the fabric type and the
highest temperature which the garment can be washed at.
Detergents and conditioners
The amount of detergent that you need to use in your appliance, will
depend on
o The degree of soiling. Lightly soiled garments in general
require less detergent.
o The size of the wash load. A smaller wash load will require a
reduction in the amount of detergent.
o The hardness of your tap water. The harder your water is,
then the more detergent you will need to use. The detergent
manufacturers normally give guidance as to how much extra
detergent should be used, depending on the hardness of the
water.
Liquid detergent
If you are using liquid detergent, then in the majority of cases the
liquid should be placed inside the dosing device supplied by the
13
detergent manufacturer and placed inside the drum. All instructions on
the detergent packaging should be followed.
Water softening agents
If your tap water is hard, then it may be prudent to utilise a water
softening agent. This will help to ensure that the appliance does not
become clogged with hard water deposits. You may also find that it will
allow you to lessen the amount of detergent that you are using.
When using any detergent or water softening
agent,
the
recommendations
of
the
manufacturers should be followed.

Maintenance and cleaning
In daily use
o Once a wash cycle has completed, you should pull out the
detergent drawer slightly, so it can dry out.
o Leave the porthole door ajar for a short while after a wash cycle
has completed. This should help to prevent stagnant smells and
to protect the door seal.
o After each washing program has finished, wipe up the remaining
water on the rubber seal ring and seal fold to prevent any
mildew and rot.
o Close the water tap.
o We suggest that you disconnect the appliance from your mains
supply, when it is not in use.
19
Control panel and washing machine cabinet.
IMPORTANT: Do not use any abrasive cleaner or household polish on
either the control panel or operating parts.
o Wipe over the control panel and the external surface of the
machine using a brand new damp cloth with warm water.
o If you ever spill any liquid detergent or conditioner from the
detergent drawer onto the washing machine cabinet, then these
should be cleaned up immediately as they could be corrosive.
Detergent drawer
Occasionally the detergent drawer should be cleaned, to remove any
detergent residue that has built up.
o Press the detergent drawer limit part
and pull out the drawer at the same
time to remove from the machine.
o Detergent can also accumulate inside
the detergent drawer recess, so you
should also clean this out using
warm soapy water and a soft cloth.
o Once you have finished cleaning the
detergent drawer and recess, you
should slide the drawer back into its
original position.
The washing machine drum
The drum of your washing machine is constructed from stainless steel.
However if there are objects that can rust placed inside the drum, then
it is possible for the drum to become stained.
IMPORTANT: Do not use a descaling agent, iron/steel wool or
scouring agents to clean the drum of your appliance.
20
o Remove any rust stains on the drum with an appropriate
stainless steel cleaning agent.
Door
o You should regularly check to see if any deposits have formed,
or there are any foreign bodies inside or underneath the rubber
door gasket. This sits inside the opening of the porthole door.
Cleaning the drain pump filter
IMPORTANT: Switch off your washing machine and disconnect the
plug from your mains supply.
You should clean out the filter approximately every ten washes.
If the drain pump filter is not cleaned regularly, then your
appliance may find it difficult to pump out water efficiently.
1) Empty the water from the pump into a
container carefully.
2) Screw the pump cover out and clean the
filter.
3) Clean the drainage pump regularly to
prevent the sundries blocking the drainage
pipe. After cleaning, reinstall the pump cover.
IMPORTANT: If you are draining water from the bail hose and drain
pump filter in an emergency. You should take care as the water
coming from the machine mid-cycle could be hot. Especially if the
water is being drained in the middle of one of the hotter wash cycles.
21
Cleaning the water inlet filter
o Clean the filter when water leaks from the water inlet.
o Always pull the power plug out before cleaning.
1) Screw the inlet water pipe out.
2) Clean with a gauze brush.
Winter storage
o You should install your appliance in a location where it will not be
subjected to freezing temperatures.
o If you are going to store your appliance in a location where the
temperature will drop below freezing in winter, then you should
follow the table below.
To winterize the washer
• Turn off the water supply.
• Disconnect and drain the water
inlet hoses.
• Run the washer on a drain and
spin setting for one minute.
• Unplug the power supply cord.
To use the washer again
• Flush the water pies
and hoses.
• Reconnect the water
inlet hoses.
• Turn on the water
supply.
• Reconnect the power
supply cord.
22
Removing stains
Garments that are covered in stains, grease or are heavily soiled may
need to be pre-washed or soaked before being placed inside of the
washing machine.
o Soaking helps to remove protein-type stains, like blood, milk or
grass.
o Pre-washing helps to loosen soil before the main wash.
Stain removal rules
o Use warm water for soaking or pre-washing stained laundry. Hot
water can set stains.
o Most stains are easier to remove when they are fresh.
o Before treating any stain try to establish; what kind of stain it is,
how old the stain is, what the fabric type is and whether the
fabric is colourfast (check the care label to find this out).
o Washing and drying can fix some stains.
o When bleach is recommended, use a mild fabric bleach that is
safe for the fabric.
o If you need to use a stain remover, put the stained area face
down on a paper towel or white cloth. Apply the stain remover to
the back of the stain. This forces the stain off the fabric, instead
of through it.

Removal Method
The stain should be first washed with cold water, then
wiped with glycerine and water and rinsed with water
mixed with vinegar.
The stain should be softly scratched without ruining the
material, then rubbed with detergent and rinsed. In case
it is not eliminated, rub with 1 unit of pure alcohol (96
degrees) mixed in 2 units of water and then washed with
lukewarm water.
Stretch the stained area of material on the top of a
container and pour water as hot as the material can
endure on it. If the type of material is suitable, wash it
with lye.
Leave your clothes in cold water and rub with soap or
detergent, wash it in the highest temperature that the
material type can endure. If there is still a stain of oil left,
wipe with oxygenated water (in proportion of 3%).

wash with diluted lye.
Grease and
oil stains
First wipe the residues. Rub the stain with detergent and
then wash with lukewarm soapy water.
Mustard
First apply glycerine to the stained area. Rub with
detergent and then wash. If the stain still does not
disappear, wipe with alcohol (on synthetic and coloured
cloth, a mixture of 1 unit alcohol, 2 units water should be
used).
Lay your clothes in cold water for 30 minutes. If the stain
still does not disappear, lay in mixture of water and
ammonia (3 table-spoons of ammonia in 4 litres of water)
for 30 minutes.
Lay your clothes in cold water and rub the stained area
with detergent. If the stain has still not disappeared,
apply lye on the fabric of your clothes in proper
proportion. (Do not use lye on coloured clothes).
Mould stains should be cleaned as soon as possible. The
stain should be washed with detergent, and if it does not
disappear, it should be wiped with oxygenated water (in
proportion of 3%).
Hold the stained area under cold water and wait until the
inky water completely runs off. Then rub with water
diluted with lemon juice and detergent. Wait five minutes
and then wash.
Stretch the stained area of your clothes on the top part of
a container and pour cold water on it. Do not pour hot
water on the stain. Wipe with cold water and apply
glycerine. Wait for 1-2 hours and rinse after wiping with a
few drops of white vinegar.
Rub the stained part with detergent. If the type of fabric
is suitable for use of lye, wash it with lye. Rub your
woolen clothes with alcohol (for coloured one, a mixture
of 1 unit pure alcohol and 2 units of water).
The stain should be eliminated before it dries by applying
thinner on it. Then it should be rubbed with detergent and
washed.

The incorrect detergent is being used.
Stains are not being pre-treated.
The correct wash program or wash temperature was not
selected.
I have followed the advice given above, but my
garments are still coming out with grey stains on them.
o The garments are soiled with oils, ointments or grease
and were washed without enough detergent.
o The wash temperature selected was too low.
o Fabric conditioner has come into contact with the
garments. If this happens try to wash out these stains
as quickly as you can and try to avoid getting
conditioner on the garments in future.
After the final rinse, I can still see foam.
o Modern detergents can result in there still being foam in the final
rinse, this does not mean that the washing is not being rinsed
properly.
There is white residue on my garments when I remove
them from the appliance.
o Modern detergents can contain insoluble contents; white residue
after a wash cycle is not necessarily a sign of the garments being
insufficiently rinsed by the washing machine.
o You should shake out the garment or brush it off. In future possibly
turn the garment inside out before it is washed. You may wish to
25
move from a powder detergent and switch to a liquid detergent
instead.

water mains using an existing inlet hose, YOU MUST utilise the inlet
hose that is provided with the appliance.
Your appliance should only be connected to a cold water supply.
1) Take out the attached inlet hose.
2) Attach the inlet hose vertically to the spiral tap
for the washing machine.
3) Screw tap tightly in the direction of the screw
thread of the inlet hose.
4) Connect the hose to the water inlet
at the back of the washing machine.
IMPORTANT: When connecting the screw thread of the inlet
hose and the inlet valve, prevent the screw thread from being
secured incorrectly or it will wear or leak.
28
Do not over bend the inlet hose or this will cause damage.
Connecting to the water outlet
1) Please use an elbow to bend
the drain hose at a proper angle
and fix securely.
2) The correct position of
the drain hose is one which
will
prevent
any
water
leaking onto the floor or
other surfaces.
IMPORTANT: Do not insert the drain hose too deeply into the
water pipe, as this may cause siphoning.
3) To prevent siphoning, the installation height of the drain hose
should be between 0.6 – 1 m and the end of the drain hose should not
be immersed in water.
NEVER EXTEND THE DRAINAGE HOSE FROM ITS ORIGINAL
LENGTH.
