Hints & Tips
Sorting the laundry
How much laundry per load?
Do not allow moist laundry to lay for any longer period
of time. Moist laundry becommes mouldy and begin
to smell. The mould stains can not be removed.
Since it’s difficult to weigh the laundry we suggest that
you appriciate the weight by looking to see how full the
drum is.
It’s not recommended to mix coloured with white
Cotton and linen: Full drum, but not too tightly packed.
New coloured garments often contain surplus dye. It
is best to wash such items separately the first time.
Linen can be washed as ”cotton” or ”synthetic” but
spin only briefly otherwise the fibres will brake.
Iron free materials such as polyester/cotton should be
washed as ”synthetic”.
Not fragile synthetic materials: No more then 2/3 of
the drum.
Fragile materials, delicate wash and wool: No more
then half full drum.
Before loading the laundry into the machine:
Fragile materials such as acrylic and most curtains
should be washed as ”delicate”.
The wool programme is specially designed for garments
made from 100%, new wool with the label ”Machine
washable”. Other types of wool and mixtures can
shrink, or mat if machine washed.
Treat diffucult stains such as grass, rust, tar, paint
and ink before washing. To remove stains from paint
can solvents like terpentine be used. In this case the
garments must be rinsed thoroughly before they can
be washed in the machine.
All tears and holes repaired.
Lose buttons resown.
Zips are done up.
Empty and close all pockets. Objects such as coins,
safety pins, nails, screws and other hard objects can
cause serious damage to the machine and the laundry.
These types of damages are not covered by guarantee.
Weight examples of laundry items
(dry items)
To help you load your washing machine correctly, here
are some weight examples of average garments and
items. These are based on cotton goods.
The manufacture is not responsible for any damage
caused by the use of any solvents or flammable
We recommend that you wash white cotton at 60°C
instead of 90°C.
Never wash linen at any temperature higher then
60°C, because the fabric then becommes burled.
Fast coloured garments normally requires 60°C, but
if the garments are not heavily soilded, they will be
clean at 40°C.
White and coloured synthetic materials can normally
be washed at 60°C, but often it’s enough with 40°C, if
the garments are not heavily soilded.
Non-fast coloured garments and fragile materials
should never be washed at any temperature higher
then 40°C.

If your water supply is harder than 7° dH, you should descale your washing machine at least once every three
Allways check the care label, so that the garment
is washed at the right temperature. The garment
can be discoloured if it’s washed at a higher
temperature then what is recommended.
1. Use approx. 150 ml of citric acid instead of detergent.
2. Run the wash programme with the highest
temperature without any laundry.
Limescale deposits on components such as
the machine's heating element will reduce
their service life.
Contact your water company to find out the
hardness level of your local water supply.

Detergent and fabric conditioner
Good washing result depends on among other things of
the choice of detergent and the correct dosage. Too low
dosage can cause resoiling in the form of grey burls, brown
discolouration from the drum and odour in the machine.
Too much detergent has a negative impact on the environment. Even biodegradable detergents contains substances which can disturb the balance of the environment.
This washing machine has a washing system which uses
a minimum amount of water in order to make the laundry
clean. It is therefore a risk that the detergent will not desolve and residues can be found on the garments after
the programme is finished if a dosing device is used.
Pre-wash detergent is to be added straight into
the drum.
Liquid detergent
Use only good-quality detergents which are
intended for use in automatic washing
To determ how much to use, follow the detergent manufacturer's recommendations, taking into account the size
of the wash load, the degree of soiling and the hardness
of your water supply. If you live in an area with hard water,
see the section ”Descaling”. If the water hardness level
is unknown, your local water company should be able to
inform you.
Pour the detergent into the left-hand compartment of the
detergent dispenser before the programme is started.
Special types of detergents are available for coloureds,
delicates and wool.
A suitable liquid detergent can be used instead of powder
detergent for programmes with low or medium wash
temperatures. In these cases you must choose a programme without pre-wash. Pour the liquid detergent into
the detergent compartment immediately before you start
the programme.
Fabric conditioner
If you are using fabric conditioner, pour it into the righthand compartment of the detergent dispenser. Fabric
conditioner is particularly useful if the load will later be
dried in a tumble dryer, as it counteracts static electricity.
Follow the manufacturer’s dosage instructions.
Never fill the compartment for fabric conditioner higher than the marked maximum level.
Do not put the detergent manufacturer’s
dosing device/ball into the drum. Pour the
detergent into the detergent compartment

Maintenance and cleaning
The cabinet
Clean the outside surfaces of the appliance using a mild
(non-abrasive) household cleaning product. Finish by removing remaining traces of the product with a damp cloth.
Do not use cleaning products which contain
alcohol (spirits), thinners and similar substances.
The detergent dispenser
In time, residues of detergent and fabric conditioner are
likely to build up inside the detergent dispenser. It should
be cleaned at regular intervals by flushing it out with water.
If necessary, the whole dispenser can be taken out of the
machine for cleaning. You need to pull it firmly outwards,
so that it comes free of a retaining stop (Fig. 1).
To remove the siphon at the inside edge of the dispenser for cleaning, you need to press it inwards and pull it
upwards at the same time (Fig. 2). When you put it back,
press it downwards until you hear a distinct click.
Opening for the detergent dispenser
Detergent residues can also build up inside the opening
for the detergent dispenser. You can use an old toothbrush for cleaning this area (Fig. 3).
When you have finished and put back the dispenser, run
a short programme with no wash load in the machine to
rinse it clean.
Cleaning inside the machine
If you mostly use your machine for low-temperature washes
and/or if you use only very little detergent, you should clean
the inside of the machine about once a month. This will
prevent mould or stale odours from developing. Use the
full recommended quantity of detergent and run a wash
programme at the highest temperature with no wash load
in the machine.
Protecting against freezing
If the washing machine is placed in an environment where
the temperature sometimes falls below 0° C, there is a
risk that the small amount of water which remains inside
the parts of the machine will freeze and damage it.
To prevent this you should:
1. Turn off the water supply and disconnect the
water inlet hose from the supply tap.
2. Select a wash programme, start the machine
and let the programme run for a short time.
5. Select the programme ”Drain” and let that run
until it is finished.
3. Interrupt the programme by turning the programme selector to the ”Reset” position.
4. Place the end of the inlet and discharge hoses
down low, into the waste gully (floor drain) set
into the floor. Make sure that the end of the
hose does not go below the water level in the
gully's (drain's) water trap.

finished and has the indicator light for locked door gone out?
Read the chapter ”Maintenance” on door opening.
Never try to force the door open. Contact service.
Spinning starts late or the machine
does not spin.
• The electronic unbalance detection system 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.
The ”End” indicator light flashes:
1 flash
= the machine does not fill
2 flashes
4 flashes
= the machine will not drain
= the door is opened

If the machine has been damaged during transport, you
should immediately notify the company responsible for
delivering it.
Check that the machine is undamaged. If you discover
any damage, faults or that anything is missing, you should
notify the dealer immediately.
Never leave packaging material in a place
where children may play with it.
When lifting the machine
Be careful when lifting the machine. Incorrect methods of
lifting can cause physical injuries and also increase the
risk of damage to the machine. Open the door and take
hold of the top inside of the door opening. You can also
lift the machine by gripping the rear overhang of the top.
Never lift the machine by gripping it’s control
panel, door, or detergent dispenser. (Fig. 1).
Transit locking devices
When supplied the washing machine is packed using a
number of locking devices/packing pieces to prevent
drum and motor from damage in transit. These must all
be removed before installed the washing machine.
1. Spread some of the polystyrene packaging
materials on the floor behind the machine and
then lay the machine carefully rearside down
on them.
Make sure that no hoses are crushed in the
process (Fig. 2).
2. Remove the polystyrene base and the support
bar which the machine rests on.
3. Return the machine to it’s normal upright position
and remove the three screws and their spacers
on it’s rear (Fig. 3).
4. The three holes must then be plugged with the
plastic plugs supplied, which can be found in a
plastic bag inside the drum (Fig. 4).

Levelling the machine
The machine must be installed on a sound and
firm surface and must not be touching walls or
furniture. Adjust the two front feet to level the
machine. Make sure the machine is resting on
all four feet (Fig. 1).
Some vibration is normal and unavoidable when
the machine is spinning the load, particularly if
the floor is not a concrete one.
When the appliance location is on
carpet floors, attention must be paid
so as to ensure that there is no
obstruction to the bottom vents.
Water inlet
Connect the inlet hose to a tap with a 3/4" pipe
thread. If necessary, use the restrictor (1/2”)
supplied. (Fig. 2).
The inlet hose must not be joined onto any form
of extension hose. If it is too short, the entire hose
must be replaced with a longer high-pressure
hose, specially designed for the purpose.
The machine end of this hose can be turned in
any direction. Loosen the retaining nut, turn the
hose, then retighten the nut (Fig. 3).
Check that the nut is tightend before
the machine is moved into position.
Use only the inlet hose supplied with
the machine, do not reuse the old inlet

Water discharge
The discharge hose can be placed in these three ways:
Over the top edge of a washtub:
Use this option only if you can be sure that the hose will
not move when the machine is draining. The hose can
be fixed to the wall on a hook or tied to the tap with a
string (Fig. 1).
Directly into a waste pipe with a trap:
The discharge pipe can be connected directly into the
pipe (e.g. one beneath a washtub or kitchen sink), above
the water trap. The discharge hose must be arranged
so that some part of it’s length is routed up to a level
corresponding to the top edge of the tub and fixed in
place there (Fig. 2).
Directly into a wall standpipe:
This standpipe should be vertical. The height above the
floor should be between 650 and 800 mm.
There must be an air gap around and below the end of
the discharge hose. This means that the internal diameter
of the standpipe must be greater than the outer diameter
of the hose (Fig. 3). The hose must not be sticked into the
standpipe more than 50 mm and it has to be fixed in
this position.
The discharge hose can be extended up to total 3,5 m.
For the extension piece use a hose with an internal
diameter at least as large as that of the machine's own
hose. Use a suitable hose connector (Fig. 4).
In order for the machine to function properly,
the drain hose must be hooked on the factory
fitted support piece situated on top of the
back side of the appliance.
Electrical connection
The washing machine is supplied with a lead and electrical plug for connection to a 230 V earthed wall socket,
which should be easily accessible and protected by a
10 A fuse. If the machine is installed in a "wet area"
(bathroom, laundry) but without fixed wiring to the
electrical supply, an earth leakage circuit breaker (or
RCD) must be used.
Before any work is carried out on the machine,
it must be isolated from the electric mains
supply, for example by removing the plug
from the wall socket.
Permanent electrical installation must be
carried out by an authorized electrician.
