Washing hints
Sorting 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
90°
for normally soiled white cottons
and linen (e.g. tea cloths,
towels, tablecloths, sheets...)
60°
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).
for delicate items (e.g. net
30°-40° curtains), mixed laundry including
synthetic fibres and woollens
Cold 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 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.
Laundry weights
The following weights are indicative:
bathrobe
napkin, ladies’ briefs, tea cloth
quilt cover

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.
126.2931.14…EWF12680-14680W.qxd
28/10/08

Página 15
electrolux 15
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. Remove any residual marks from
white fabrics 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.
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.
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.
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.

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.
Cleaning the dispenser drawer
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.
To aid cleaning, the top part of the
additive compartment should be
removed.
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.
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.
126.2931.14…EWF12680-14680W.qxd
28/10/08

Página 21
electrolux 21
• Place a containfer close to the pump
to collect any spillage.
• 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.
• Remove any objects from the pump
impeller by rotating it.
• 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.
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.
The dangers of freezing
If the machine is exposed to
temperatures below 0°C, certain
precautions should be taken.
• Turn off the water tap.
• Unscrew the inlet hose.
• Place the end of the inlet hose in a
bowl placed on the floor and let water
drain out.
• Screw the water inlet hose back on.
• When you intend to start the machine
up again, make sure that the room
temperature is above 0°C.
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 device
avoiding that part of the detergent
remains unused at next washing.

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 the water
should drain by gravity into the bowl.
When the bowl is full, empty the bowl.
Repeat the procedure until water
stops flowing out;
• clean the pump if necessary as
previously described;
• screw the pump cover again and
close the door.

Malfunction
The machine vibrates or is
noisy:
Possible cause
●
●
●
●
The transit bolts and
packing have not been
removed.
The support feet have not
been adjusted.
The laundry is not evenly
distributed in the drum.
Maybe there is very little
laundry in the drum.
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.
Solution
●
Check the correct
installation of the appliance.
●
●
Check the correct levelling
of the appliance.
Redistribute the laundry.
●
Load more laundry.
●
Redistribute the laundry.

You are advised to keep all transit
devices so that they can be refitted if the
machine ever has to be transported
again.
wall. Previously check if:
- it is not a hot water tap.
- the running water is clean. If not, run
off a reasonable amount of water to
flush out any debris that may have collected in the pipes.
Have the permanent drainage system
in the wall checked by a plumber.
1. Carefully screw the pipe to the tap
taking care not to damage the screwdrive and fix the nut well on to the end
in order to avoid leaking.
1. Unscrew and remove the three rear
screws by means of a key.
2. .Open the porthole and remove the
polystirene block fitted on the doos
seal.
2. If necessary turn the hose adequately by unscrewing the nut at the
rear of the appliance. Now tighten the

Electrical connection
This machine is designed to operate
on a 230 v, single-phase, 50Hz supply.
Check that your domestic electricla
installation can take the maximum load
required (2.1 kW), also taking into
account any other appliances in use.
IMPORTANT: The distance from the
floor to the highest part of the hose
should be between 60 to 90 cm. (It is
advised to be between 60 and 70 cm).
The hose must not be bent nor twisted
to avoid clogging. Should a prolongation of the discharging hose be
unavoidable this must never surpass
1.5 m and must be of the same diameter as the original hose. Make sure the
hoses are not too tense.
Levelling
Level the washing machine by loosening
or tightening the feet. Once in the right
position fix the feet by pushing the nuts
against the base of the case. Accurate
levelling will prevent vibration, noise and
displacement of the appliance during
operation.
Some vibration is inevitable, especially if
placed on a wooden floor. Wooden
floors are particularly susceptible to
vibrations, if possible always place the
appliance on a solid floor.
The applicable rules for electrical
security require an adequate earthing. The plug of the appliance is
provided with such a device.
The manufacturer declines any responsability for damage or injury through failure
to comply with the above safety precaution. Should the appliance power supply
cable need to be a replaced, this should
be carried out by our Service Centre.
Please ensure that when the appliance is
installed the power supply cble is easily
accessible.
