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.
Downloaded From WashingMachine-Manual.com Manuals
10 electrolux
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.
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.
The washing powder and additive dispenser drawer should be cleaned regularly.
Remove the drawer by pressing the catch
downwards and by pulling it out.
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.
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.
Clean the chamber of dispenser drawer
with a brush.
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.

WHAT TO DO IF…
Certain problems are due to lack of simple
maintenance or oversights, which can be
solved easily without calling out an engineer. Before contacting your local Service
Centre, please carry out the checks listed
below.
During machine operation it is possible that
the red pilot light of button 5 blinks to indicate that the machine is not working.
It is possible to recognize the machine fault
by the number of button 5 light flashes. If
the number of flashes is different from the
ones indicated below, this is related to a
fault that you cannot solve. In this case,
contact your local Service Centre.
Press simultaneously the buttons 4 and 5
for a few seconds. The red button 5 light
will flash for a short time as described (the
green flash is not to be considered) :
• 4 flashes = «The washing machine
does not start», follow the corresponding suggestions in «Possible cause/Solutions» box and restart the programme.
• 1 flash = «The machine does not fill»,
follow the corresponding suggestions in
«Possible cause/Solutions» box and restart the programme.
• 2 flashes = «The machine does not
empty and/or does not spin», follow
the corresponding suggestions in «Possible cause/Solutions» box and restart the
programme.
Once the problem has been eliminated,
press the button 5 to restart the programme. If after all checks, the problem
persists, contact your local Service Centre.

Problem
Possible cause/Solution
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 door is released before opening the door.
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.

ECOLOGICAL HINTS
To save water, energy and to help protect
the environment, we recommend that you
follow these tips:
• Normally soiled laundry may be washed
without prewashing in order to save detergent, water and time (the environment
is protected too!).
• The machine works more economically if
it is fully loaded.
• With adequate pre-treatment, stains and
limited soiling can be removed; the laundry can then be washed at a lower temperature.
• Measure out detergent according to the
water hardness, the degree of soiling and
the quantity of laundry being washed.
