Important warnings
These warnings were written for your own safety and for the safety
of others.
Before using your washing machine for the first time
Respect the “Installation and connection instructions” given below.
This washing machine was designed for use by adults. Make sure that
children do not touch it or play with it.
Unpack your washing machine immediately when you receive it, or
ask someone else to unpack it for you. Check its general appearance.
If you have any reserves, write them on the delivery form, and keep
a copy of it.
Your washing machine is designed for normal domestic use. Do not
use it for commercial or industrial purposes or for anything other
than the purposes for which it was designed.
Do not modify or attempt to modify the characteristics of this
washing machine. This would be dangerous for you.
Always pull out the plug and turn off the water supply tap when you
have finished using the washing machine.
Only wash articles that will resist machine washing. Follow the
instructions on the label attached to each article.
Do not use your washing machine to wash articles with whalebones,
material without hems or torn material.
Remember to take out coins, safety pins, broaches, screws, etc. before
putting clothes in the washing machine. This type of item can cause
serious damage if it is left in the washing.
Do not put articles in the washing machine if you have just cleaned
them using a stain remover containing gasoline, alcohol,
trichloroethylene, etc. If you use this type of stain remover, wait
until the product has evaporated before putting your washing in
the drum.
User's instructions
Put all small items such as socks, belts, etc., together inside a small cloth
bag or pillow case, so that they cannot get trapped between the drum
and the tank.
Leave the cover and the drum open when you are not using your
washing machine, to air the tank and prevent the formation of mould
and bad smells.
Always unplug the washing machine before cleaning and servicing it.
Use only detergents designed for the washing machine. Follow the
recommendations made by the manufacturer of these products.
If the washing machine is installed in a location subject to frost,
completely drain the washing machine and unscrew the tap supply pipe
and put it down on the floor.
Elements forming part of the packaging (for example plastic films,
pieces of polystyrene) can be dangerous for children. Keep these
packaging elements out of reach of children.
Make sure that pets cannot get into the drum of your washing machine.
Never use the washing machine if the power supply cable, the control
panel, the working surface or the base are damaged so that the inside
of the washing machine is accessible.
Safety devices
Cover: your washing machine is equipped with a safety device
preventing the washing machine cover from closing when the drum
doors are open.
It is impossible to start it until the doors are closed. An electromechanical
safety device prevents you from opening the cover while the washing
machine is operating, and for about 2 minutes after the end of the
Washing motor: a temperature safety device protects the motor
against risks of mechanical overload, or overvoltage or undervoltage.
Heating: heating will not start until the water quantity necessary for
washing has been added into the tank. This safety device is effective
mainly when the water supply is cut off or if you forget to open the
water supply tap.
User's instructions
The anti-foam system: water consumption is very low, due to the
electronic spin cycle with an intermediate spin after the main wash and
three rinse cycles for white and color programs. The spin cycle remains
under the control of the foam detection system after the wash cycle has
finished. If necessary, the spin cycle will stop until all foam is removed.
The unbalanced weight protection system: this safety system keeps the
washing machine stable during intermediate spins or the final spin and
therefore detects any bad distribution of your washing (small load or
tangled washing). It can then remedy this situation.
The drum self positionning system: this electronic system ensures that
the doors are in the upper position when the wash programme finishes.
This system allows for easier loading and unloading of the laundry. If an
unbalanced weight alters the functionning, turn the drum by hand.
User's instructions
Protection of the environment
All materials marked with the
symbol can be recycled. Place them in a
waste collection bin provided for this purpose (ask your local municipal
services) so that they can be recovered and recycled.
Plastics are identified as follows:
>PE< for polyethylene, for example for the surrounding cover and
envelopes containing the documentation;
>PS< for expanded polystyrene, for example packing parts practically
free of HCFC.
Cardboard is made from recycled paper and therefore should be discarded
in waste paper collection bins.
We recommend that the following instructions should be followed to save
water and energy, and therefore contribute to protecting the environment:
- When possible, use full loads rather than partial loads in your washing
machine (however do not overload the drum).
- Only use programs with prewash for very dirty washing.
- Adapt the amount of detergent to the water hardness, to the amount
of your washing, and how dirty it is.
If you scrap your old washing machine, make sure that you put everything
that could be dangerous out of service; cut the power supply cable flush with
the washing machine, and prevent the door latch from closing.
Automatic adjustment of water consumption
This automatic adjustment system adapts the water consumption as a
function of the quantity and nature of the washing.
If you have an operating problem, refer to the “TROUBLESHOOTING” section.
If you need help after having made all these verifications, you should
normally call the After Sales Service of the company which sold you the
washing machine. If this is impossible (if you have moved, or if the shop in
which you bought your washing machine has closed, etc.), please call the
Consumer Advice Service which will then inform you of the address of an
After Sales Service.

Preparing a Wash Load
Sorting and preparing a wash load
• Sort washing according to the care symbol and type (see "Washing types
and care symbols").
• Empty all pockets.
• Remove metal objects (paper clips, safety pins etc.).
• In order to prevent bunching up of washing and damage to washing,
close zippers, button up duvet covers and pillow cases, and tie up loose
straps such as from aprons.
• Turn articles with double layered textiles inside out (sleeping bags,
anoraks etc.).
• Coloured, knitted fabrics, as well as wool and fabrics with appliqués
should be turned inside out.
• Place small and delicate items (e.g. socks, tights and stockings, bras etc.)
in a washing net, or pillow case.
• Handle curtains with care. Metal rollers or burred, plastic rollers must be
removed or tied into a net or bag. We cannot accept liability for damage.
• Do not wash coloured and white washing together. This could discolour
white washing or turn it grey.
• New, coloured washing often contains excessive dye. Wash these
separately the first time.
• Mix small and large items of washing. This improves washing efficiency
and the washing is more evenly distributed during the spinning cycle.
• Shake out washing before placing into the washing machine.
• Do not place folded washing into the drum.
• Observe tips such as "wash separately“ and "wash separately several

Water hardness in mmol/l
Hardness range
The quantity of detergent to be used
(millimoles per liter)
depends on the amount of washing to
up to 1,3
be washed, the hardness of the water I - soft
and how dirty your washing is.
II - medium
1,3 - 2,5

You can determine the degree of hardness of your water by asking the water
distribution utility in your region or any other competent authority.
Note: Only use low foam detergents sold in the shops specially for use in
washing machines. Use neutral products for washing woolens.
If you use liquid detergents, put the proportioning ball directly in the drum
and choose a program without pre-wash. If you dry your washing in a drier,
do not forget to take out the proportioning ball. You can also add liquid
detergent for your washing into the drum directly, provided that you do not
do a pre-wash and you start your washing machine immediately.
Liquid detergents are suitable for low temperatures (namely 30°C and 40°C).
It is recommended that a powder detergent should be used for higher
temperatures from 60°C to 90°C.
With this distributor, you can automatically add a liquid softener to your last
rinse water. Respect the proportions shown on the flask, depending on the
nature of the softener used (normal or concentrated).
Do not exceed the maximum softener quantity (80 ml) specified for the
product box. An overflow orifice under the softener display window will
inform you if you add too much.
It is recommended that you should add a softener product while washing to
facilitate drying and make your washing softer. It can also help to eliminate
static electricity.

Installing your washing machine
Removing transport packing
All parts used to protect internal components of the washing machine
during transport must be removed before you use the washing machine for
the first time. Keep these parts and their attachments in case you need to
transport it again.
1.Remove the outer packaging from the washing
machine. Tilt it backwards, rotate it by a quarter of a
turn on one of its back corners to take it off the
transport base. It will naturally be separated from the
washing machine.
2.Open your washing machine cover and take out the
packing that holds the drum in place and the plastic
wedge. Close the cover again.
3.Use a spanner to unscrew and remove the two spacers
(A) at the back of the washing machine.
4.Now put the closers (B) provided in the pack attached
to the washing machine into position to close the
openings that became visible, and do not forget to
fold back the plug into the middle.
Installation and connection instructions
5. Make sure that you have removed all these packing
parts from the washing machine, and keep them in a
safe place in case you need them for transport again
(for example if you move).
6. If you want to keep your washing machine in line
with adjacent furniture, you can cut the pipe support
strip at the back of your washing machine. This will
save about 2 to 3 cm in depth.
Put the two side closers into position.
Installation and connection instructions
In order to install your washing machine, you will need:
An electricity power supply (see electrical connection).
A water inlet with a 20 x 27 mm connection.
A water drain with a minimum height of 70 cm.
A ventilated room.
Put your washing machine on a hard and flat floor.
Make sure that your washing machine does not touch the wall or any other
elements in the kitchen.
Warning: when your machine is installed on a floor with a carpet, make sure
that the carpet does not block any of the openings near the bottom of the
machine, since they are necessary for ventilation.
The tap, drainage installation and the power outlet must be close to the
machine pipes and the power supply cable.
Do not install the washing machine in a room subject to frost.
Leveling and moving the washing machine
Level the washing machine by screwing the leveling screws in or out.
Precise leveling will prevent vibrations, noise and movements of the machine
during operation.
After leveling, fix the leveling screws in position by tightening the rings
manually or using a screwdriver.
When you want to move your washing machine, lift it on its rollers by pulling
the lever at the bottom of the washing machine from the right towards the
left. Put the lever back into its initial position once you have put the machine
where you want it.
Installation and connection instructions
Electrical connection
Information about the mains power supply, the
nature of the power and the fuses to be used are
given on the washing machine name plate at the
back of the washing machine.
If the washing machine is directly connected to the electrical installation
(fixed connection), insert a two-pole switch with a contact opening distance
of not less than 3 mm.
This washing machine can only be connected to 220-230 V single phase
power supply.
Check that the subscriber’s meter and fuses are capable of carrying the
current required by the washing machine, allowing for other electrical
equipment connected at the same time.
Rating of line fuses (one for each phase):
10 A in 220-230 V single phase.
The installation shall comply with with the rules in force.
Use a power outlet with an earthing pin, which shall be connected
according to the rules in force.
If the mains power supply cable has to be replaced, have the work done by
the After Sales Service to make sure that it is done safely.
Make sure that the earthing connector is conform with the rules in force.
We cannot be held responsible if accidents or incidents are caused by a
non-existent or defective earth.
Installation and connection instructions
Water connections
The washing machine is provided with safety equipment that prevents dirty water from flowing backwards into the drinking water
supply pipes, in accordance with national water company specifications. Therefore there is no need to use any other additional
protection in the installation.
Warning! Washing machines designed to be connected to a cold
water pipe must not be supplied with hot water!
Allowable water pressure
The water pressure shall be not less than 0,5 bar (= 0,05 MPa) and not more
than 8 bar ( = 0,8 MPa).
Install a pressure reducer if the pressure exceeds
8 bar.
If the pressure is below 0,5 bar, unscrew the
supply pipe on the magnetic inlet valve on the
washing machine, and remove the flow regulator
(to do this, you will need to remove the filter
using pliers, and then rubber washer under it). Then put the filter
back into position. This work can only be done by a qualified installer.
Water supply
A 1.5 m long supply pipe is provided with the washing machine.
If you need to use a longer supply pipe, only use a complete set of
pipes fitted with installed screw-on end pieces, supplied by our After
Sales Service.
Warning! Never use odd pieces of pipe as extensions!
Sealing rings are supplied either inside the plastic nuts, or with the
accessories supplied with the washing machine. Do not use other
sealing rings!
Installation and connection instructions
Connect the water inlet hose to a cold water tap
with a 3/4" gas threaded orifice, after having inserted
the rugger sealing washer into the hose collar. If the
water connection is made onto new pipes or onto
pipes which have not been used for a long time, it
is advisable to run off a certain amount of water
before connecting the machine.
You can rotate the other end of the water inlet pipe at the machine end
in any direction. Unscrew the tightening ring slightly, turn the end of the
pipe as you wish and tighten the ring again firmly.
Water drainage
It is preferable to connect the drain pipe to a siphon. However, you can
put it directly in a sink or a basin, or even into a bath.
Only use original pipes as extensions (placed on the floor over a length
of not more than 3 m and at a height of not more than 1 m).
Water drained into a siphon
The end piece fitted on the end of the pipe may be
connected to any type of standard siphon.
Use a clamping collar to keep the end piece in
position on the siphon.
Water drained into a sink
When the drain pipe is placed in a sink or a wash
basin, use the elbow supplied with the washing
machine to prevent it from slipping.
This pipe could be forced out of the sink under the
pressure of the water being drained.
Small sinks should be avoided !
You can avoid this problem by fixing the elbow to
the water tap or to the wall using the orifice
