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.
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.
1) do not use acetone on artificial silk

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,
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.
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.
Important! Do not use methylated spirits,
solvents or similar products to clean the
cabinet.

Washing drum
Rust deposits in the drum may occur due to
rusting foreign bodies in the washing or tap
water containing iron.
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.
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.
Programme: Short Cotton Programme at
maximum temperature and add approx.
1/4 measuring cup of detergent.

Problem
Possible cause/Solution
There is water on the floor:
Too much detergent or unsuitable detergent (creates too much
foam) has been used.
• Reduce the detergent quantity or use another one.
Check whether there are any leaks from one of the inlet hose fittings.
It is not always easy to see this as the water runs down the hose;
check to see if it is damp.
• Check the water inlet hose connection.
The drain or inlet hose is damaged.
• Replace it with a new one.
The emergency emptying cap has not been replaced into the filter
or the filter has not been properly screwed in after cleaning action.
• Refit the emergency emptying cap or screw the filter fully in.
Unsatisfactory washing results:
Too little detergent or unsuitable detergent has been used.
• Increase the detergent quantity or use another one.
Stubborn stains have not been treated prior to washing.
• Use commercial products to treat the stubborn stains.
The correct temperature was not selected.
• Check if you have selected the correct temperature.
Excessive laundry load.
• Reduce the laundry load.
The door will not open:
The programme is still running.
• Wait the end of washing cycle.
The door lock has not been released.
• Wait until the symbol
as gone out.
There is water in the drum.
• Select drain or spin programme to empty out the water.
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.
If you are unable to identify or solve the problem, contact our service centre. Before telephoning, make a note of the model, serial
number and purchase date of your machine:
the Service Centre will require this information.
