Your New Washing Machine
Your new washing machine meets all modern requirements for effective treatment of laundry
with low water, energy and detergent consumption.
Even small loads are washed “economically” because the amount of water used is regulated
automatically according to the load and type of fabric.
●
●
●
Automatic cooling of the wash water to 60°C
before draining, with the 95°C programme. This
reduces thermal shock to fabrics, helping to prevent
creasing.
The special wool programme with its new delicate
wash system treats your woollens with extreme care.
The balance control device ensures that the
washing machine remains stable when spinning.
In the interest of the
environment
●
●
●
Ecological hints
To save water and energy and help protect the
environment, we recommend that you follow these
hints:
● 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.
●
Materials marked with the symbol
are
recyclable.
Check with your local Council or Environmental
Health Office to see if there are facilities in your area
for re-cycling this appliance.
When the appliance is to be scrapped, cut off the
power supply cable and make the door lock device
unusable to prevent young children from being
trapped inside.
Help to keep your country tidy - use authorised
disposal sites for your old appliance.
The symbol
on the product or on its packaging
indicates that this product may not be treated as
household waste. Instead it shall be handed over to
the applicable collection point for the recycling of
electrical and electronic equipment. By ensuring this
product is disposed of correctly, you will help
prevent potential negative consequences for the
environment and human health, which could
otherwise be caused by inappropriate waste handling
of this product. For more detailed information about
recycling of this product, please contact your local
city office, your household waste disposal service or
the shop where you purchased the product.
How do we help to protect the environment?
We use recycled paper!
Important
Your machine is fitted with a balance control device, which ensures the machine is stable during the spin.
If the wash load appears not to have been spun sufficiently at the end of the wash cycle, it is because it is not evenly
distributed in the drum, the balance control device may have operated. It will therefore be necessary to redistribute the
wash load manually and select a spin programme. For more detailed information see the section headed “Something
Not Working”.

Load the laundry loosely alternating large items with
small ones.
Sort the laundry according to the type of fabric,
colour-fastness and how dirty it is.
Avoid washing unhemmed or torn items as they may
unravel.
Before washing, empty all pockets of small objects
which may have been left inside (coins, keys, screws
etc). as these could damage the drain pump.
When washing curtains, remove the hooks.
Close poppers and zips and fasten loose buttons.
It is essential to wash new coloured items separately
when washing for the first time.
When washing fabrics requiring different wash
temperatures together, always select the lowest
temperature.
White items should not be washed with coloured
items.
Very small items (handkerchiefs, ribbons, socks etc)
should be washed in a washing bag or a pillow case.
Use a good quality detergent suitable for automatic
washing machines.
12
Use the correct quantities of detergent.
For wool, use gentle detergent only in small
quantities.
Bleach is very corrosive; it should be used with care
and kept out of reach of children.
Some stains such as fruit, wine, grass, rust etc. are
difficult to remove and should be treated before
washing with specific products, which can be found
in most household shops. In some cases it may help
to soak the stain before washing with a special presoak product or biological detergent.
Only wool marked “Pure New Wool - washable,
preshrunk” can be washed in the the wool
programme; other types of wool should be washed
by hands.
If you have used the machine to wash, rinse or spin
only non-colour fast garments, there may be dye left
in the sump. To ensure any subsequent wash is not
contaminated with the dye, select and carry out a
rinse and spin programme, without any garments, to
ensure that any dye is removed from the sump.
Once you have finished using the machine, you are
advised to unplug it and turn off the water tap.

Which detergent?....
And in which form?
To ensure you obtain the best wash results from your
appliance, it is important to use the right detergent in
your everyday wash, and only detergents recommended
for use in automatic machines.
To maintain the appearance of your clothes and
household textiles and to make them last longer you
should use different types of detergent for different
washes, whether for whites, colours or delicates.
Not only are there different types of detergent, but they
are also available in different forms. Whether you chose
a powder or liquid in traditional or compact form is
your own personal choice.
TRADITIONAL POWDERS
Pour the powder directly into the dispenser drawer. Do
not sprinkle powder onto clothes in the machine drum.
TRADITIONAL LIQUIDS
WHITES
Liquid can be placed in the main wash compartment of
the detergent drawer marked with the symbol
, start
the machine immediately upon placing the detergent in
the dispenser drawer.
Alternatively the detergent is measured into the
specially designed dosing device* which should be
placed on top of the laundry, and at the back of the
machine drum.
We recommend the Ariel product
range which is biological and
designed to provide excellent
cleaning and stain removal even
at low temperatures.
NON BIOLOGICAL
If you prefer to use a non
biological detergent, which does
not contain enzymes we
recommend Fairy. Fairy provides
good cleaning and stain removal.
COMPACT POWDERS AND LIQUIDS
Compact detergents (or concentrates as they are also
known) are available in liquid or powder form, and
generally require a smaller dosage. Follow the
manufacturer’s instructions to ensure the most
economical usage. Pour the detergent directly into the
dispenser drawer, or alternatively measure the detergent
into the specially designed dosing device* which
should be placed on top of the laundry, and at the back
of the machine drum.
COLOURS
For coloured items you should use a
detergent which is designed to clean
while maintaining the original colour.
Ariel Color does not contain bleach
and therefore helps to preserve
colours.
* If you use a dosing device in a washer dryer,
please ensure the dosing device/ball is removed
before carrying out a drying programme.
DELICATE ITEMS
FABRIC CONDITIONERS
When washing delicates such as
woollens, you should use a product
which is specially designed to care for
fine fabrics.
Dreft Automatic is suitable for
woollens and other delicates.
These are ideal for improving ‘softness’, and also
reduce static cling on synthetics and make ironing
easier. They are available in two types:
For example Lenor liquid fabric
softener, for use in the washing
machine/washer dryer. The
liquid fabric softener should be
poured into the compartment
marked with the symbol .
Follow the manufacturer’s dosage
instructions and never exceed the
MAX level.
LAUNDRY BLEACH
For additional stain removal you may
wish to use a product such as Ace
Gentle Bleach which is used in addition
to your chosen detergent. Ace is
suitable for all washable fabrics
including silks, woollens and colours.
Bounce conditioning sheets for use
in a tumble dryer. We recommend
the conditioning sheets are pinned
(using a safety pin) to an article
of laundry and placed in the
tumble dryer.

machine prematurely.
When using liquid detergent and a prewash programme,
place the detergent into the correct compartment in the
dispenser drawer, after the prewash has finished.
For best results, always use the dispenser drawer for
dispensing detergents and liquid additives.
Once the dispenser has been filled, close it by pushing it
in gently. This is particularly important if you are using

Maintenance and Cleaning
To aid cleaning, the top part of the additive compartment
should be removed.
Before any maintenance or cleaning is carried out you must
DISCONNECT the appliance from the electricity supply.
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.
C0066
C0067
C0068
P1086
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 (such as Ariel Futur).
Cleaning the drawer recess
Having removed the drawer, use a small brush to clean
the recess, ensuring that all washing powder residue is
removed from the upper and lower part of the recess.
Replace the drawer and run the rinse programme
without any clothes in the drum.
External cleaning
Clean the exterior cabinet of the appliance with soap and
water only, and then dry thoroughly.
Cleaning the dispenser drawer
P0038
The washing powder and additive dispenser drawer
should be cleaned regularly.
Remove the drawer by pressing the catch downwards
and by pulling it out. Flush it out under a tap, to remove
any traces of accumulated powder.
Cleaning the pump
The pump should be inspected 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:
• Disconnect the appliance.
• If necessary wait until the water has cooled down.
• Open the pump door.
17
132978490.qxd
10/01/2007
10.47
Pagina
18
• Screw the pump cover fully in.
• Close the pump door.
Warning
When the appliance is in use and depending on the
programme selected there can be hot water in the pump.
Never remove the pump cover during a wash cycle,
always wait until the appliance has finished the cycle,
and is empty. When replacing the cover, ensure it is
securely retightened so as to stop leaks and young
children being able to remove it.
P1114
• Place a container close to the pump to collect any
spillage.
• Pull out the emergency emptying hose, place it in the
container and remove its cap.
• When no more water comes out, unscrew the pump
cover and remove it. Always keep a rag nearby to dry
up spillage of water when removing the cover.
Cleaning the water inlet filter
If your water is very hard or contains traces of lime
deposit, the water inlet filter may become clogged.
It is therefore a good idea to clean it from time to time.
Turn off the water tap. Unscrew the water inlet hose.
Clean the filter using a hard bristle brush.
Tighten up the inlet hose.
P1115
• Remove any objects from the pump impeller by
rotating it.
P1090
The dangers of freezing
If the machine is installed in a place where the
temperature could drop below 0°C, proceed as follows:
• Remove the plug from the socket.
• Close the water tap and unscrew the water inlet hose
from the tap.
• Place the end of the emergency emptying hose and
that of the inlet hose in a bowl placed on the floor and
let water drain out.
• Screw the water inlet hose back on and reposition the
emergency emptying hose after having put the cap on
again.
By doing this, any water remaining in the machine is
removed, avoiding the formation of ice and,
consequently, breakage of the affected parts.
When you use the machine again, make sure that the
ambient temperature is above 0°C.
• Put the cap back on the emergency emptying hose and
place the latter back in its seat.
P1117

Important!
Every time you drain the water through the emergency
emptying hose you must pour 2 litres of water into the
main wash compartment of the detergent drawer and
then run the Drain programme. This will activate the
ECO valve and avoid the detergent remains being
wasted.
Emergency emptying out
If the water is not discharged, proceed as follows to
empty out the machine:
• pull out the plug from the power socket;
• close the water tap;
• if necessary, wait until the water has cooled down;
• open the pump door;
• place a bowl on the floor and place the end of the
emergency emptying hose into the bowl. Remove its
cap. The water should drain by gravity into the bowl.
When the bowl is full, put the cap back on the hose.
Empty the bowl. Repeat the procedure until water
stops flowing out;
• clean the pump if necessary as previously described;
• replace the emergency emptying hose in its seat after
having plugged it;
• screw the pump cover again and close the door.

Something Not Working
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 Force Centre, please carry out the checks listed
below.
IMPORTANT: if you call out an engineer to a fault listed below, or to repair a fault caused by incorrect use or
installation, a charge will be made even if the appliance is under guarantee.
During machine operation it is possible that one of the following alarm codes appears on the display and at the same
time the buzzer sounds:
- E10 : problem with the water supply
- E20 : problem with water draining
- E40 : door open
Once the problem has been eliminated, press the “Start/Pause “button to restart the programme. If after all checks, the
problem persists, contact your local Service Force Centre.

The drain hose extension, if fitted, is not correct. Follow the
instructions for connecting to the waste.
The drainage system pipes are blocked.
The wash load is unbalanced: redistribute the clothes inside the drum to
allow the machine to spin.
Too much detergent or unsuitable detergent has been used (creates too
much foam).
Check whether there are any leaks from the inlet hose fittings. It is not
always easy to see this as the water runs down the hose; check to see if
it is damp.
The drain hose may be damaged or not securely positioned.
The detergent dispenser drawer or recess is clogged.
The drainage system pipes are blocked.
The cap on the emergency emptying hose has not been replaced after
cleaning the pump.
Too little detergent or unsuitable detergent has been used. An
insufficient amount of detergent leaves the laundry looking grey and

Symptom
Possible causes
The machine vibrates when spinning
●
●
●
●
The door will not open
The machine is in contact with the wall or furniture.
The machine is not level and stable (check diagonally).
The washing load is badly distributed in the drum.
Maybe there is very little laundry in the drum.
The water level is above the bottom edge of the door.
The machine is heating the water.
● The drum is turning.
In any case, the door can be opened only when the “Door” pilot light
has gone off.
●
●
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.
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.

Installation on a Suspended Floor
HEC0011
Suspended wooden floors are particularly susceptible to
vibration. To help prevent vibration we recommend you
place a waterproof wood panel, at least 15 mm thick
under the appliance, secured to at least 2 floor beams
with screws. If possible install the appliance in one of
the corners of the room, where the floor is more stable.

Water inlet
Water drainage
An inlet hose is supplied and can been found inside the
machine drum.
Do not use the hose from your previous machine to
connect to the water supply.
1. Open the porthole and extract the inlet hose .
2. Connect the hose with the angled connection to the
machine.
Important!
Do not place the inlet hose downwards. Angle the
hose to the left or right depending on the position of
your water tap.
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.

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.
HEC0013
When discharging into a standpipe ensure that the top of
the standpipe is no more than 90cm (35.4'') and no less
than 60cm (23.6'') above floor level.
P1088
Min. 60 cm (23.6”)
Installation should comply with local water authority
and building regulations’ requirements.
The appliance must be connected to a cold water
supply.
A minimum water pressure of 0.05 MPa (0.5 bar) is
required for safe operation of the appliance.
Max. 90 cm (35.4”)

HEC0012
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 5.02m
(16.5 ft) between the appliance’s inlet and the bottom of
the water storage tank.
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
18mm.

If your drain hose looks like this (see below) you do not
require the “U” piece”. Just push the hose firmly into
the standpipe.
If necessary, check the setting with a spirit level.
HEC007
Any necessary adjustment can be made with a spanner.
Accurate levelling prevents vibration, noise and
displacement of the machine during operation.
Some vibration is inevitable, especially if mounted on a
wooden floor.
Sprung wooden floors are particularly susceptible to
vibration. For advice, consult a builder. If possible,
always place the machine on a solid floor.
P1212
2. Onto a sink outlet spigot.
If the outlet spigot has not been used before, remove
any blanking plug that may be in place.
Special conditions
If the floor is carpeted or covered with crumbly or soft
material, insert a rigid support base under the feet to
prevent noise, vibration or displacement. The base
should protrude a few centimetres beyond the edges of
the machine.
P1197
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.
Warning
The machine should NOT be placed on deep pile
carpeting.
Note
Please ensure that when the appliance is installed it is
easily accessible for the engineer in the event of a
breakdown.

In the interest of the environment
P1198
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.
Important
●
Before connecting the machine to new pipework or
to pipework that has not been used for some time,
run off a reasonable amount of water to flush out any
debris that may have collected in the pipes.
Levelling
Level the washing machine by raising or lowering the
feet. The feet may be tight to adjust as they incorporate
a self locking nut, but the machine MUST be level and
stable.
