PRECAUTIONS AND GENERAL RECOMMENDATIONS
1.Packing
• The packing box may be fully recycled as confirmed
by the
recycling symbol. Adhere to local
regulations when disposing of packaging material.
2.Energy saving tips
• Achieve the best use of energy, water, detergent
and time by using the recommended maximum
load size.
• Do not exceed the detergent dosages indicated
in the manufacturer’s instructions.
• The Eco Flap - a special system in the outlet will prevent detergent loss from the drum to
avoid detergent loss into the environment.
• Use “Prewash” for heavily soiled laundry only!
Save detergent, time, water and energy
consumption by not selecting “Prewash” for
slight to normally soiled laundry.
• Pretreat stains with stain remover or soak dried
in stains in water before washing to reduce the
necessity of a hot wash program.
• Save energy by using a 60° C instead of a 90° C
wash programme or a 40° C instead of a 60° C
wash programme.
• Save energy and time by selecting a high spin
speed to reduce the water content in laundry
before using a tumble dryer (for machines with
adjustable spin speed).
3.Disposing of packaging and old
appliances
• The washing machine is built from reusable
materials. The washing machine must be
disposed of in compliance with local waste
disposal regulations.

PREPARATION OF THE WASHING
Sort the laundry
Stain removal
1. Sort the laundry according to…
• Type of fabric / care label symbol
Cottons, mixed fibres, easy care/synthetics,
wool, handwashed items.
• Colour
Separate whites and coloureds. Wash new
coloured items separately.
• Size
Wash items of different sizes in the same load to
improve efficiency and distribution in the drum.
• Fabric delicacy
Wash delicate articles separately: use a special
programme for Pure New Wool
, curtains and
other delicates. Always remove curtain glides or
wash curtains with the glides inside a cotton
bag. Use the special program for handwash
fabrics. Wash stockings, belts and other small
items or articles with hooks (e.g. bras) in special
cotton bags for washing machines or in zipped
pillow cases.
• Blood, milk, egg and other organic substances
are generally removed by the enzyme phase of
the programme.
• To remove red wine, coffee, tea, grass and fruit
stains etc. add a stain removing agent in
detergent dispenser compartment
or
chlorine bleach in compartment
(depending
on model).
• Particularly stubborn stains should be treated
before the wash.
2.Empty pockets
Coins, safety pins and similar items can damage
of your appliance drum and tub.
3. Fasteners
Close zips and fasten buttons or hooks; loose
belts or ribbons should be tied together.
Loading the laundry
Dyeing and bleaching
Products usually consist of dye colour, fixing agent
and salt. Pour the dye colour, the fixing agent and
then the salt directly into the empty drum. Load
the laundry only afterwards.
• Only use dyes and bleaches recommended for
washing machines.
• Follow the manufacturer’s instructions.
• Plastic and rubber parts of the machine may be
stained by dyes or bleaches.
1.Open the door.
2.Unfold the laundry and place it loosely in the
drum. Follow loads recommended in the
programme chart: Overloading will result in
unsatisfactory washing results and creased
laundry.
3.Close the door.
DETERGENTS AND ADDITIVES
Choice of the right detergent and additives
The type of detergent depends on:
• type of fabric (cottons, easy care/synthetics,
delicate items, wool).
Note: use only specific detergents for wool.
• colour;
• washing temperature;
• degree and type of soiling.
Notes:
Whitish residues on dark fabrics are caused by
insoluble detergents components used in modern
phosphate-free powder detergents. If you notice
this problem, shake or brush the affected items or
use a liquid detergent.
Keep detergents and additives in a dry place and
out of reach of children.
Use only detergents and additives specifically
produced for domestic washing machines.
If you use descaling agents, dyes or bleaches,
make sure they are suitable for washing machine
use. Descaler could contain components that can
attack parts of your washing machine.
Do not use solvents (turpentine, benzine, etc.).
Do not machine wash fabrics that have been
treated with solvents or flammable liquids.
23
Black Process Plate
3gb05112.fm5 Page 24 Tuesday, November 21, 2000 4:36 PM
Dosage
Notes:
Too much detergent can result in excess foam
formation, and the reduction of washing efficiency.
If the appliance detects excessive foam it may
prevent spinning.
Insufficient detergent may result in:
grey laundry, deposits on the drum, tub and heater.
You can use liquid detergent in the “Prewash”
phase for programmes with this option. In this
case put only powder detergents in the
compartment for the main wash
.
When using concentrated fabric softeners, add
water in the detergent dispenser up to “MAX” level
mark.
To prevent dispensing problems when using highly
concentrated powder and liquid detergents, use
the special detergent ball or bag supplied with the
detergent and place it inside the drum.
Follow the instructions on the detergent pack in
relation to:
• the degree and type of soiling;
• the size of the load:
• full load: follow the detergent manufacturer’s
instructions;
• half load: 3/4 the amount used for a full load;
• minimum load (about 1 kg): half the amount
used for a full load;
• water hardness in your area (ask for information
from your water company): soft water requires
less detergent than hard water.

TROUBLESHOOTING GUIDE
This washing machine is equipped with automatic
safety functions which detect and diagnose faults
at an early stage and react appropriately.
Often, however, the faults detected are small
enough to be solved in a matter of minutes.
For example:
The appliance will not start, no lamp lights up.
Check whether:
• the appliance is plugged in;
• the wall socket is functioning correctly
(use a table lamp or similar);
• a programme is selected correctly.
Detergent and additive product residues in
dispenser at end of wash.
Check whether:
• the siphon is correctly installed and clean
(see “Care and Maintenance”);
• enough water is being supplied. The mesh filters
between the inlet hose and the tap could be
blocked (see “Care and Maintenance”). Check
and clean the filter two or three times a year
(see “Removing the filter”).
The appliance vibrates during the spin cycle.
The appliance will not start, but the
“Start/Pause” lamp is flashing.
Check whether:
• the appliance door is properly closed
(child safety);
• the programme has been changed;
• the water tap is open. If not, open the tap and
press the “Start/Pause” button.
The appliance stops during the programme.
Check whether:
• the “Rinse Hold” lamp is on, terminate this
option by pressing the button again;
• another programme has been selected.
Reselect the desired programme and press the
“Start/Pause” button;
• “Start/Pause” lamp is flashing. Press “Start/
Pause” button;
• Safety system of the appliance was activated.
See fault description table.
Check whether:
• the appliance is levelled and solidly installed on
all four feet (see “Installation Instructions”);
• the transit bolts have been removed. The transit
bolts must be removed before the appliance can
be used (see “Installation Instructions”).
Final spin results are poor:
The appliance has an imbalance detection and
correction system. If individual heavy articles are
loaded (bathmat, bathrobe, etc.) this system may
reduce the spin speed automatically to protect the
appliance or even interrupt the spin cycle
altogether, if the imbalance is too great even after
several spin starts.
• If the laundry is still too wet at the end of the
cycle, add smaller articles of laundry to balance
the load and repeat the spin cycle.
• Excessive foam formation may prevent spinning.
Ensure correct amount of detergent is used
No water or insufficient water supply:
• the appliance has a safety hose and the safety
valve has opened (red indicator in the safety
valve inspector window).
In this case replace it with a new safety hose.
What should I do when the automatic safety system detects a malfunction?
The programme is interrupted and various indicators (if available) point to the source of the fault.
