HELPFUL HINTS AND TIPS
Sorting out the laundry
Follow the wash code symbols on each garment label and the manufacturer’s washing
instructions. Sort the laundry as follows:
whites, coloureds, synthetics, delicates,
woollens.
Before loading the laundry
Never wash whites and coloureds together.
Whites may lose their «whiteness» in the
wash.
New coloured items may run in the first
wash; they should therefore be washed separately the first time.
Button up pillowcases, close zip fasteners,
hooks and poppers. Tie any belts or long
tapes.
Remove persistent stains before washing.
Rub particularly soiled areas with a special
detergent or detergent paste.
Treat curtains with special care. Remove
hooks or tie them up in a bag or net.
Removing stains
Stubborn stains may not be removed by
just water and detergent. It is therefore advisable to treat them prior to washing.
12 electrolux
Blood: treat fresh stains with cold water.
For dried stains, soak overnight in water
with a special detergent then rub in the
soap and water.
Oil based paint: moisten with benzine
stain remover, lay the garment on a soft
cloth and dab the stain; treat several times.
Dried grease stains: moisten with turpentine, lay the garment on a soft surface and
dab the stain with the fingertips and a cotton cloth.
Rust: oxalic acid dissolved in hot water or a
rust removing product used cold. Be careful
with rust stains which are not recent since
the cellulose structure will already have
been damaged and the fabric tends to hole.
Mould stains: treat with bleach, rinse well
(whites and fast coloureds only).
Grass: soap lightly and treat with bleach
(whites and fast coloureds only).
Ball point pen and glue: moisten with acetone1), lay the garment on a soft cloth and
dab the stain.
Lipstick: moisten with acetone as above,
then treat stains with methylated spirits.
Treat any residual marks with bleach.
Red wine: soak in water and detergent,
rinse and treat with acetic or citric acid,
then rinse. Treat any residual marks with
bleach.
Ink: depending on the type of ink, moisten
the fabric first with acetone1), then with acetic acid; treat any residual marks on white
fabrics with bleach and then rinse thoroughly.
Tar stains: first treat with stain remover, methylated spirits or benzine, then rub with detergent paste.
Detergents and additives
Good washing results also depend on the
choice of detergent and use of the correct
quantities to avoid waste and protect the environment.
Although biodegradable, detergents contain
substances which, in large quantities, can
upset the delicate balance of nature.
The choice of detergent will depend on the
type of fabric (delicates, woollens, cottons,
1) do not use acetone on artificial silk
etc.), the colour, washing temperature and
degree of soiling.
All commonly available washing machine detergents may be used in this appliance:
• powder detergents for all types of fabric
• powder detergents for delicate fabrics
(60°C max) and woollens
• liquid detergents, preferably for low temperature wash programmes (60°C max)
for all types of fabric, or special for woollens only.
The detergent and any additives must be
placed in the appropriate compartments of
the dispenser drawer before starting the
wash programme.
If using liquid detergents, a programme
without prewash must be selected.
Your appliance incorporates a recirculation
system which allows an optimal use of the
concentrated detergent.
Follow the product manufacturer’s recommendations on quantities to use and do
not exceed the «MAX» mark in the detergent dispenser drawer .
Quantity of detergent to be used
The type and quantity of detergent will depend on the type of fabric, load size, degree of soiling and hardness of the water
used.
Follow the product manufacturers’ instructions on quantities to use.
Use less detergent if:
• you are washing a small load
• the laundry is lightly soiled
• large amounts of foam form during washing.
Degrees of water hardness
Water hardness is classified in so-called “degrees” of hardness. Information on hardness of the water in your area can be obtained from the relevant water supply company, or from your local authority. If the water hardness degree is medium or high we
suggest you to add a water softener following always the manufacturer’s instructions.
When the degree of hardness is soft, readjust the quantity of the detergent.

CARE AND CLEANING
Warning! You must disconnect the
appliance from the electricity supply,
before you can carry out any cleaning
or maintenance work.
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.
Important! Do not use methylated spirits,
solvents or similar products to clean the
cabinet.
Cleaning the dispenser drawer
The detergent dispenser drawer should be
cleaned regularly.
The washing powder and additive dispenser drawer should be cleaned regularly.
Remove the drawer by pressing the catch
downwards and by pulling it out.
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.
Maintenance wash
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.
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 with biological properties.
External cleaning
Clean the exterior cabinet of the appliance
with soap and water only, and then dry thoroughly.
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. Clean all
parts with water.
electrolux 17
Programme: Short Cotton Programme
at maximum temperature and add approx. 1/4 measuring cup of detergent.
Door seal
Check from time to time the door seal and
eliminate eventual possible objects that
could be trapped in the fold.
Clean the chamber of dispenser drawer
with a brush.
Drain pump
The pump should be inspected regularly
and particularly if:
• the appliance does not empty and/or spin;
• the appliance makes an unusual noise during draining due to objects such as safety
pins, coins etc. blocking the pump.
• a problem with water draining is detected
(see chapter “What to do if...” for more details).
Warning! Before opening the pump
door, switch the appliance off and
remove the mains plug from the socket.
Washing drum
Rust deposits in the drum may occur due
to rusting foreign bodies in the washing or
tap water containing iron.
Important! Do not clean the drum with
acidic descaling agents, scouring agents
containing chlorine or iron or steel wool.
1. Remove any rust deposits on the drum
with a cleaning agent for stainless steel.
2. Run a washing cycle without any washing to clean off any cleaning agent residues.
Proceed as follows:
1. Unplug the appliance.
2. If it is necessary, wait until the water
has cooled down.
3. Open the pump door.
18 electrolux
4. Place a container close to the pump to
collect any spillage.
5. Pull out the emergency emptying hose,
place it in the container and remove its
cap.
6. When no more water comes out, unscrew the pump cover by turning it anticlockwise and remove the filter. Use pliers, if necessary. Always keep a rag
nearby to dry up any water spillages
when removing the cover.
Clean the filter under a tap, to remove
any traces of fluff.
7. Remove foreign bodies and fluff from
the filter seat and from the pump impeller.
8. Check carefully whether the pump impeller rotates (it rotates jerkily). If it
doesn’t rotate, please contact your
Service Centre.
9. Put the cap back on the emergency
emptying hose and place the latter
back in its seat.
10. Replace the filter into the pump by inserting it correctly into the special
guides. Screw the pump cover firmly by
turning it clockwise.
electrolux 19
11. Close the pump 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
refitting the pump cover, ensure it is securely re-tightened so as to stop leaks and
young children being able to remove it.
Cleaning the water inlet filters
If you notice that the machine is taking longer to fill, check that the filter in the water inlet hose is not blocked.
1. Turn off the water tap.
2. Unscrew the water inlet hose.
3. Clean the filter in the hose using a hard
bristle brush.
4. Screw the hose back onto the tap.
5. Unscrew the hose from the machine.
Keep a rug nearby because some water
may flow.
6. Clean the filter in the valve with a stiff
brush or with the piece of cloth.
7. Screw the hose back to the machine
and make sure the connection is tight.
8. Turn on the water tap.
Emergency emptying out
If the water is not discharged, proceed as
follows to empty out the machine:
1. pull out the plug from the power socket;
2. close the water tap;
3. if necessary, wait until the water has
cooled down;
4. open the pump door;
5. place a bowl on the floor and place the
end of the emergency emptying hose into the bowl. Remove its cap. The water
20 electrolux
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;
6. clean the pump if necessary as previously described;
7. replace the emergency emptying hose
in its seat after having plugged it;
8. screw the pump again and close the
door.
bowl placed on the floor and let water
drain out;
3. screw the water inlet hose back on and
reposition the emergency emptying
hose after having put the cap on again.
By doing this, any water remaining in the machine is removed, avoiding ice forming and
consequently damage to the appliance.
When you use the machine again, make
sure that the ambient temperature is above
0°C.
Frost precautions
If the machine is installed in a place where
the temperature could drop below 0°C, proceed as follows:
1. close the water tap and unscrew the water inlet hose from the tap;
2. place the end of the emergency emptying hose and that of the inlet hose in a
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 device avoiding
that part of the detergent remains unused
at next washing.

Problem
Possible cause/Solution
The machine vibrates is
noisy:
The transit bolts and packing have not been removed.
• Check the correct installation of the appliance.
The support feet have not been adjusted
• Check the correct levelling of the appliance.
The laundry is not evenly distributed in the drum.
• Redistribute the laundry.
Maybe there is very little laundry in the drum.
• Load more laundry.
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.
• Redistribute the laundry.
The load is too small.
• Add more items, redistribute the load manually and then select
the spinning programme.
The machine makes an unusual noise:
The machine is fitted with a type of motor which makes an unusual
noise compared with other traditional motors. This new motor ensures a softer start and more even distribution of the laundry in the
drum when spinning, as well as increased stability of the machine.
No water is visible in the
drum:
Machines based on modern technology operate very economically
using very little water without affecting performance.

noise and displacement of the machine during operation.
Caution! Never place cardboard,
wood or similar materials under the
machine to compensate for any
unevenness in the floor.
Water inlet
Warning! This appliance must be
connected to a cold water supply.
1. Connect the water inlet hose supplied
with the machine to a tap with a 3/4"
thread. Always use the hose supplied
with the appliance.
Do not place the inlet hose downwards.
Angle the hose to the left or right depending on the position of your water tap.
3. Set the hose correctly by loosening the
ring nut. After positioning the inlet hose,
be sure to tighten the ring nut again to
prevent leaks.
The inlet hose must not be lengthened. If it
is too short and you do not wish to move
the tap, you will have to purchase a new,
longer hose specially designed for this type
of use.
Important! Before connecting up 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.
Water drainage
The end of the drain hose can be positioned in three ways.
• Hooked over the edge of a sink using
the plastic hose guide supplied with the
machine. In this case, make sure the end
cannot come unhooked when the machine is emptying. This could be done by
tying it to the tap with a piece of string or
attaching it to the wall.
