DESCRIPTION OF THE MACHINE
T he washing machine is a domestic appliance that is used to wash
various types of fabrics.
The machine is constructed from panels treated and painted such
that high aesthetic quality is achieved.
The motor and all moving parts have been designed and
manufactured to provide quiet operation.
The stainless steel drum is large and well mounted for a better
quality wash and longer linen life.
The control panel ensures easy selection of all the wash cycles
desired.
The large door makes loading and unloading the washing easier*.
Its excellent stability is the result of extensive research into the
equilibrium of masses in movement.
INSTALLATION

Stain removal
Not all stains can be removed by machine washing.
The following instructions describe the treatment to be given to material prior to being
loaded in the machine, in order to avoid an unsuccessful wash and the formation of
residual discolouring.
Wax: Remove the wax with a non-cutting edge in order to remove as much as
possible, then place a sheet of paper between an iron and the stained item.
Ball point and felt tip pens: Reduce the stain with the aid of a soft cloth
soaked in colourless 90°alcohol. Be careful not to spread the stain.
Damp marks and mildew: After having checked that the item is colorfast on
a non-visible part, put it to soak in water with added bleach. Otherwise, place the
item in 10% oxygenated water and leave for 10-15 minutes.
Ironing marks: If the fabric is slightly marked, use the procedure described for
mildew.
Rust: Use an anti-rust product following the manufacturer’s instructions.
Chewing gum: Dilute using acetone and remove with a clean cloth.
Paint: Do not wait for the paint to dry. Treat immediately with the solvent
indicated on the paint container (water, turps, trichloroethylene). Wash with soap
and water, then rinse.
Lipstick: Dab with ether if the item is wool or cotton, or with trichloroethylene if it
is silk.
Nail varnish: Place the stained part of the item on a sheet of absorbent paper,
and then wet the other side of the item with acetone. Ensure that the sheet of
absorbent paper is changed frequently. Continue until the stain has completely
disappeared.
Metal stains: Apply lemon juice until the stain has completely or almost
disappeared.
Grease or tar: Spread some fresh butter on the stain, leave for a while then
dab with oil of turpentine.
Grass: Soap delicately, treat with dilute bleach. For woollens, 90° alcohol can
give good results.

Open the door (Fig.12).
Load the washing in the machine and close the door.
N.B.Using detergent (Fig.13)
(Fig.14)
Each product poured into its respective section must not be allowed to
overflow. Should the detergent enter the softener section, the washing will
be rinsed in soapy water, leaving white marks. Vice versa, if the softener
enters the detergent section during the washing cycle, efficiency will be
affected.
Add the reduced lather detergent and softener (if required) specially
made for automatic washing machined). For the dosage, refer to the
instructions on the packet. In the case of soft water, reduce the
dosage.
N.B. Excessive use of softener may damage the fabric.
Close the soap powder container (Fig. 15).
Warning! Do not remove the soap powder container while the
machine is in operation, as this may cause water to spill out.
Select the most suitable programme and correct temperature from the
programme table***.

MAINTENANCE
Introduction
Our
washing machine does not need any particular or complicated
maintenance operations, in that it has been designed for a long working
life. Nevertheless, some care and attention are recommended*. Before
carrying out the following operations, ensure that the machine is
disconnected from the electricity supply (Fig.11) and the water is turned
off (Fig.25).
Periodic soap
Powder
Container
cleaning
T his is carried out each time when there is a build up of soap powder in
the container.
T he procedure can be carried out simply by extracting the pull-out
container from its housing (a sharp pull is required to overcome the
stopper) (Fig.26) and rinsing it under a jet of water.
The machine must not be cleaned with solvents. A slightly soapy wet cloth
is sufficient.
Pump filter
cleaning
T his is carried out periodically. Ensure the machine is empty and there is
no water in the tub and the electricity supply is disconnected (Fig.5).
The operation is carried out by placing a basin or cloth under the filter
Fig.25
cover to soak residual water (Fig.27).
The filter is removed from its seating by rotating it half a turn in an
anticlockwise direction and pulling outwards (Fig.28). The filter is
cleaned under a jet of water, ensuring that all trapped particles are
removed.
Then replace the filter in its housing, rotating it clockwise until it locks in
position (Fig.29).
