Preparing the wash cycle
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.

Maximum loads
Recommended loads are indicated in the washing programme charts.
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 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 concentrated powder or liquid detergents, a programme without
prewash must be selected.
132966571.qxd
21/01/2008
16.14
Pagina
31
Preparing the wash cycle
31
The washing machine 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 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.Pour le traitement des taches
avant le cycle de lavage, conformez-vous aux doses et aux instructions
préconisées par le fabricant du produit. Si vous utilisez du produit de lavage
pour traiter les taches, vous devez démarrer immédiatement le cycle de
lavage.
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.
Note: A water softener must be added when water has a medium-high degree
of hardness (from degree of hardness II). Follow the manufacturer’s instructions.
The quantity of detergent can then always be adjusted to degree of hardness I (=
soft).

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.

5. Clean all parts of the washing machine, especially the nozzles in the top of the washing-in chamber, with a
brush.
6. Insert the detergent dispenser drawer in the guide rails and push it in.
Washing drum
Rust deposits in the drum may occur due to rusting foreign bodies in the
washing or tap water containing iron.
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: COTTONS/LINEN 90° or 95°C, press the button 6, add
approx. 1/4 measuring cup of detergent.
Door seal
Check from time to time the door seal and eliminate
eventual possible objects that could be trapped in the
fold.
Drain pump
The pump should be inspected regularly
and particularly if
● the machine does not empty and/or
spin
● the machine makes an unusual noise
during draining due to objects such as
safety pins, coins etc. blocking the
pump.
Proceed as follows:
1. Disconnect the appliance.
2. If necessary wait until the water has cooled down.

Installation
Positioning and levelling
Install the machine on a flat hard floor.
Make sure that air circulation around the machine is
not impeded by carpets, rugs etc.
Before placing it on small tiles, apply a rubber
coating.
Never try to correct any unevenness in the floor by HEC007S
putting pieces of wood, cardboard or similar
materials under the machine.
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.
Automatic foot: The rear foot on the left-hand side of your washing machine
is built as a shock absorbing foot, which is why the appliance gives in the back
left-hand corner if put under load. The automatic foot guarantees that the
appliance does not move even at high spin speeds. Basically the automatic foot
does not need to be set.
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.
HEC0006
4. Connect the hose to a tap with a 3/4” thread.
Always use the hose supplied with the appliance.
Installation should comply with local water authority
and building regulations requirements. A minimum
water pressure of 0.05 MPa is required for safe
operation of the appliance.
If you cannot make the cold water connection direct
from the rising mains, you may be able to operate the
appliance from your cold water storage system. There
should be a minimum distance of between the appliance’s inlet and the bottom of the water storage tank.
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, longer hose specially designed for
this type of use.
Water-stop device
The inlet hose is provided with a water stop device,
which protects against damage caused by water leaks in
the hose which could develop due to natural ageing of
the hose. This fault is shown by a red sector in the
window “A”. Should this occur, turn the water tap off
and refer to your Service Centre to replace the hose.

Water drainage
This appliance is designed to be permanently plumbed
into your home's drainage system using one of the
following methods.
1. Into a drainage standpipe.
Firstly form a hook in the end of the drain hose using
the “U” piece” supplied.

When discharging into a standpipe
ensure that the top of the standpipe is
no more than 90 cm (35.4'') and no less
than 60 cm (23.6'') above floor level.
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.
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.

In the interest of the environment
Washing machines and dishwashers
should be connected to the FOUL
drainage system, the water will then
be taken to a sewage works for treatment before being discharged safely
into a river.
It is essential that these appliances are
not connected to the surface water
drainage system as this water is discharged directly into a river or stream
and may cause pollution.
If you require any further advice please
contact your local water authority.

● 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.
