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.
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.
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.

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
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.

Water drainage
The end of the drain hose can be positioned in three ways:
Hooked over the edge of a sink using the plastic hose guide supplied
with the machine.
In this case, make sure the end cannot come
unhooked when the machine is emptying.
This could be done by tying it to the tap with a piece
of string or attaching it to the wall.
In a sink drain pipe branch. This branch must be
above the trap so that the bend is at least 60 cm above
the ground.
Directly into a drain pipe at a height of not less
than 60 cm and not more than 90 cm.
The end of the drain hose must always be ventilated, i.e. the inside diameter of
the drain pipe must be larger than the outside diameter of the drain hose.
The drain hose must not be kinked.

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 Centre.
Electrical connection
This machine is designed to operate on a 220-230 V, single-phase,
50 Hz supply.
Check that your domestic electrical installation can take the maximum load
required (2.2 kW), also taking into account any other appliances in use.
Connect the machine to an earthed socket.
The manufacturer does not accept any responsibility for damage or
injury through failure to comply with the above safety precaution.
Permanent connection
In the case of a permanent connection it is necessary that you install a double pole
switch between the appliance and the electricity supply (mains), with a minimum
gap of 3 mm between the switch contacts and of a type suitable for the required
load in compliance with the current electrical regulations.
The switch must not break the yellow and green earth cable at any point.
This operation must be performed by a qualified electrician.
The power supply cable must be easily accessible after installing the
machine.
Should the appliance power supply cable need to be replaced, this must
be carried out by a Service Centre.

Ecological hints
To save water, energy and to help protect the environment, we recommend that
you follow these tips:
• 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.
