Use
Note!The different type of cottons (towelling, sheets, shirts, and so on) or
eventual laundry rolling up during spinning phase may cause a not uniform
dryness. So, in the exceptional case that at the end of the cycle the laundry
remains slightly wet, we suggest you to stretch the items rolled up out, to
redistribute evenly the laundry in the drum and to select an additional drying
cycle of 20-30 minutes.
At the end of the programme
At the end of the drying programme, the buzzer sounds. A blinking «0» appears
on the display. At this point, begins an anti-crease phase which lasts about 10
minutes. During this time the ANTI-CREASE symbol appears on the display and
the door is locked. The DOOR symbol remains lit.
Note!
If you whish to open the door before or during the anti-crease phase or to interrupt it, press any button or turn the programme selector dial to any programme
position (except «O»), the door can be immediately opened. Turn the selector
dial to the «O» position to switch the machine off. Remove the laundry.
Automatic washing and drying (NON-STOP programme)
For NON-STOP programmes, the recommended load size is 3.5 kg for cotton and
2 kg for synthetics. Note! Only with the timed drying, it is possible also to
dry up to 5 kg of cotton itens (see the drying time table).Do not use a
dosing device/ball when carrying out a washing & drying programme.
Select the washing and the drying programme by turning the
programme selector dial (1) and buttons 3 and 4.
Switch the machine on by turning the selector dial to the selected washing
programme/temperature with the required options.

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.
Temperatures
95° or 90°
for normally soiled white cottons and linen (e.g. tea cloths,
towels, tablecloths, sheets...).
60°/50°
for normally soiled, colour fast garments (e.g. shirts, night
dresses, pyjamas....) in linen, cotton or synthetic fibres and
for lightly soiled white cotton (e.g. underwear).
40°-30°- Cold
for delicate items (e.g. net curtains), mixed laundry including
synthetic fibres and woollens bearing the label «pure new
wool, machine washable, non-shrink».
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.
Make sure that no metal objects are left in the laundry (e.g. hair clips,
safety pins, pins).
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.

General rules:
Cotton, linen: drum full but not too tightly packed;
Synthetics: drum no more than half full;
Delicate fabrics and woollens: drum no more than one third full.
Washing a maximum load makes the most efficient use of water and energy.
For heavily soiled laundry, reduce the load size.

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.

Preparing the wash cycle
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 acetone (*), 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 acetone (*), 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.
(*) 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 washer-dryer 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 concentrated powder or liquid detergents, a programme without
prewash must be selected.
The washer-dryer incorporates a recirculation system which allows an optimal
use of the concentrated detergent.

Pour liquid detergent into the dispenser drawer compartment marked
just
before starting the programme.
Any fabric softener or starching additives must be poured into the compartment
marked
before starting the wash programme.
Follow the product manufacturers’ 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. For the stain treatment before
the washing cycl, follow the product manufacturers’ instructions on
detergent quantities. If you use any specific product to remove the stains, you
must start the cycle of washing immediately .
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.

Preparing the drying cycle
Preparing the drying cycle
As a dryer, the machine works on the condensation principle.
Therefore, the water tap must be open and the drain hose must drain
water into a sink or into the drain pipe, even during the drying cycle.
Attention!
Before starting the drying programme, reduce the loads of washed laundry, in
order to obtain good performances.
Laundry not suitable for drying
• Particularly delicate items such as synthetic curtains, woollen and silk, garments
with metal inserts, nylon stockings, bulky garments such as anoraks, bedcovers,
quilts, sleeping bags and duvets must not be machine dried.
• Avoid drying dark clothes with light coloured fluffy items such as towels as these
can attract the fluff.
• Remove the laundry when the appliance has finished drying.
• To avoid a static charge when drying is completed, use either a fabric softener
when you are washing the laundry or a fabric conditioner specifically for tumble dryers.
• Garments padded with foam-rubber or materials similar to foam-rubber must
not be machine dried; they represent a fire hazard.
• Also, fabrics containing residues of setting lotions or hair sprays, nail solvents or
similar solutions must not be machine dried in order to avoid the formation of
harmful vapours..

Do not tumble dry.
Drying cycle duration
The drying time may vary depending on:
• speed of the final spin
• dryness degree required (extra dry, iron dry, cupboard dry)
• type of laundry
• wheight of the load size
The average drying time for a timed drying are indicated in the «Drying programmes» chapter. The experience will help you to dry your laundry in a more suitable
way, according to the different fabrics. Take note of the duration drying time of the
already performed cycles.
Additional drying
If the laundry is till dump at the end of the drying programme, select again a short

Care and cleaning
Care and cleaning
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.
Detergent dispenser drawer
The detergent dispenser drawer should be
cleaned regularly.
1. Remove the detergent dispenser drawer
by pulling it firmly.

rugs etc.
Before placing it on small tiles, apply a rubber coating.
Never try to correct any unevenness in the floor by putting pieces of wood,
cardboard or similar materials under the machine.
HEC007S
If it is impossible to avoid positioning the machine next to a gas cooker or coalburning stove, an insulating panel covered with aluminium foil on the side facing
the cooker or stove, must be inserted between the two appliances.
The machine must not be installed in rooms where the temperature can drop
below 0.
The water inlet hose and the drain hose must not be kinked.
Please ensure that when the appliance is installed, it is easily accessible for the
engineer in the event of a breakdown.
Carefully level by screwing the adjustable feet in or out. Never place cardboard,
wood or similar materials under the machine to compensate for any unevenness
in the floor.
Water inlet
An inlet hose is supplied and can be found inside the machine drum.
Do not use the hose from your previous machine to connect to the
water supply.
This appliance must be connected to a cold water supply.
1. Open the porthole and extract the inlet hose.
2. Connect the hose with the angled connection to the machine.
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.
4. Connect the hose to a tap with a 3/4” thread. Always use the hose supplied with
the appliance.
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, longerHEC0006
hose specially designed
for this type of use.

If your drain hose looks like this (see the relevant
pcture) you do not require the “U” piece”. Just push
the hose firmly into the standpipe.
2. Onto a sink outlet spigot.
If the outlet spigot has not been used before, remove any blanking plug that may
be in place.
Push the drain hose onto the spigot and secure with a
clip if required, ensure a loop is formed in the drain
hose (see diagram) to prevent waste from the sink
entering the washing machine.
The drain hose may be extended to a maximum of 4
metres. An additional drain hose and joining piece is
available from your local Service Force Centre. The
joining piece must have an internal diameter of 18
mm.
