User information
• Do not put articles in your washing machine if you have used a
solvent, alcohol, trichloroethylene, etc., to remove stains from
them. If you must use these stain removers, wait until the product
has evaporated before putting the articles in the drum.
• Collect all small articles such as socks, belts, etc., in a small cloth
bag or pillow case.
• Use the quantity of detergent indicated in the «proportioning of
detergents» section.
• Always unplug the washing machine before cleaning it and doing
any maintenance.
Precautions against frost
If your washing machine is exposed to temperatures below 0°C, take
the following precautions :
• Close the tap and disconnect the water supply pipe.
• Put the end of this pipe and the drain pipe into a bowl on the
floor.
• Select the «Drain» programme and make sure it works until it is
complete.
• Switch the washing machine off by putting the program selector

User information
The next time you want to use your washing machine, make sure that
it is installed in a room in which the temperature is above 0°C.
Scrapping
All materials marked with the
symbol can be recycled. Put them in
a waste tip (ask for information from your municipal offices) so that
they can be recovered and recycled.
When you take your washing machine to the tip, make sure that
everything that could be dangerous is out of service ; cut the power
supply cable flush with the surface of your washing machine.
Protection of the environment
We recommend that the following instructions should be followed to
achieve savings in water and energy and therefore to contribute to
protection of the environment:
• If possible, use the washing machine at full capacity rather than
with partial loads (however, do not overload the drum).
• Only use the Prewash or Soak function for very dirty washing.
• Use a detergent dose adapted to the water hardness (see «proportioning of detergents» section) and to the amount of washing and
how dirty it is.

Washing guide
Sorting and preparing your washing
• Sort the washing by type and care symbol (see chapter 5.4: International symbols for care of textiles): normal wash for strong
washing that can resist energetic wash and spin; delicate wash
for delicate washing that should be treated more carefully. For
mixed loads composed of articles of different types of fibers,
choose a program and temperature suitable for the most fragile
fiber.
• Wash white washing and color washing separately. Otherwise,
the white washing may be colored or look gray.
• New clothes very often have too much color. Preferably wash
new clothes separately for the first time. Respect "wash separately" and "wash several times separately" care instructions.
• Empty pockets and spread out the washing.
• Take off all loose buttons, pins and hooks and eyes. Close zip fasteners, tie knots in laces and straps.
• Turn clothes made of several layers of textiles (sleeping bags,
anoraks, etc.), colored hosiery and wool and textiles with add-on
decorations, inside out.
• Wash small delicate items (socks, tights, bras, etc) in a washing
net.
• Treat curtains with special care. Remove curtain hooks and put
net curtains in a net bag or a sachet.
Washing load depending on the nature of the material
The quantity of washing that you put in your drum must not exceed
the maximum capacity of your washing machine. This capacity may
vary depending on the nature of your textiles. Reduce the quantity
of washing if it is very dirty or if you have terry cloth type materials.
Not all textiles have the same volume and the same water retention
capacity. This is why in general the drum should be filled:
• completely, but without excessive pressure for cotton and linen,
and for mixed washe,
• half full for treated cottons and synthetic fibers,
15
User information
• about one third full for very delicate articles such as net curtains
and wool.
For a mixed wash, fill the drum as required for the most delicate
material.
Detergents and additives
Only use detergents and additives suitable for use in a washing
machine. Read the manufacturer's instructions and respect sections 2.1
and 3.2.
Powder detergents can be used without restriction; liquid detergents
should be poured either in the proportioning bowl directly in the drum,
or in the wash compartment provided that the washing machine is
started immediately; detergents in tablets or doses must be put into
the wash compartment of the detergents dispenser in your washing
machine.
The quantity of detergent to be used depends on the amount of
washing to be washed, the hardness of the water and how dirty the
washing is.
If the water is soft, you can reduce the doses slightly. Increase the
doses slightly if the water is hard (it is recommended to use a water
softener) or if the washing is very dirty or stained.
You can ask the water distribution company in your region or any
other competent authority to find out the degree of hardness of your
water.

Detergents
Your washing machine has been produced in order to reduce water and
detergents consumptions, so you can reduce the doses recommended
by detergent manufacturers. Pour the powder detergent dose into the
wash compartment
and into the prewash compartment
if you
chose the «prewash» option. Pour in the softener into the
compartment. If you are using a different type of detergent, refer to
the «detergents and additives» section in the washing guide.

18
User information
function enables also to cancel a programme and to restart the
washing machine in case of error. If the programme selector is turned

carried out and will ignore the new position of the selector. In order
to solve this problem, re-position the programme selector on its
original position.
Selecting the spinning speed
When selecting the programme or in Pause mode, the light
corresponding to the maximum spinning speed illuminates. You can
adjust the spinning speed which corresponds to the type of laundry
and the degree of dampness required at the end of the wash
depending on your drying possibilities. You can also choose the RINSE
HOLD option. If you do not modify the spinning speed, the final
spinning is automatically adapted to the chosen programme. The

Normally there is no need to descale the washing machine if the
detergent was correctly proportioned.
If descaling is necessary, use a special non-corrosive product specially
designed for washing machines that you can find in the shops.
Respect the proportion and frequency of descaling shown on your
packaging.
The surface
Clean the surface of your washing machine using lukewarm water
and a mild detergent. Never use alcohol, solvents or similar products.

You can now see the openings that must be
closed with the caches in the pack attached to
the washing machine; do not forget to fold
down the central capsule.
Make sure that you have removed all these
parts from your washing machine and keep
them so that you can use them again if you
need them for future transport.
If you want to keep your washing machine
aligned with the adjacent furniture, you can cut
the pipe support strip at the back of your
washing machine. Leave the two side closers in
place.
Position

of the washing machine all the way to the left.
