Helpful hints and tips
Sorting out the laundry
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 your 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
acetone1), 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 acetone1), then with
acetic acid; treat any residual marks on white
fabrics with bleach and then rinse
thoroughly.
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.
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.
Removing stains
Stubborn stains may not be removed by just
water and detergent. It is therefore advisable
to treat them prior to washing.
1) do not use acetone on artificial silk
18
Follow the product manufacturer’s
recommendations on quantities to use and
do not exceed the «MAX» mark in
the detergent dispenser drawer.
Tar stains: first treat with stain remover,
methylated spirits or benzine, then rub with
detergent paste.
Detergents and additives
Quantity of detergent to
be used
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 liquid detergents, a programme
without prewash must be selected.
Your appliance incorporates a recirculation
system which allows an optimal use of the
concentrated detergent.
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. If the
water hardness degree is medium or high
we suggest you to add a water softener
following always the manufacturer’s
instructions. When the degree of hardness is
soft, readjust the quantity of the detergent.
19
Drying Hints
Preparing the drying
cycle
• Also, fabrics containing residue of setting
lotions or hair sprays, nail solvents or
similar solutions must not be machine
dried in order to avoid the formation of
harmful vapours.
The detergent and any additives must be
placed in the appropriate compartments of
the dispenser drawer before starting the
wash programme.
If using liquid detergents, a programme
without prewash must be selected.
Your appliance incorporates a re-circulation
system which allows an optimal use of the
concentrated detergent.
Follow the product manufacturer’s
recommendations on quantities to use and
do not exceed the «MAX» mark in
the detergent dispenser drawer.
As a dryer, the appliance works on the
condensation principle.
Therefore, the water tap must be
open and the drain hose must drain
water into a sink or into the drain
pipe, even during the drying cycle.
Attention!
Before starting the drying programme,
reduce the loads of washed laundry, in order
to obtain good performances.
Laundry not suitable for
drying
• Particularly delicate items such as
synthetic curtains, woollen and silk,
garments with metal inserts, nylon
stockings, bulky garments such as anoraks,
bed covers, quilts, sleeping bags and
duvets must not be machine dried.
• Avoid drying dark clothes with light
coloured fluffy items such as towels as
these can attract the fluff.
• Remove the laundry when the appliance
has finished drying.
• To avoid a static charge when drying is
completed, use either a fabric softener
when you are washing the laundry or a
fabric conditioner specifically for tumble
dryers.
• Garments padded with foam-rubber or
materials similar to foam-rubber must not
be machine dried; they represent a fire
hazard.
Garment labels
For drying, follow the indications given on
the manufacturer’s labels:
•
= May be tumble dried
•
= Drying at high temperature
•
= Drying at reduced temperature
•
= Do not tumble dry.
Drying cycle duration
The drying time may vary depending on:
• speed of the final spin
• dryness degree required (iron dry, store
dry)
• type of laundry
• weight of the load size .
The average drying time for a timed drying
are indicated in the «Drying programmes»
chapter. The experience will help you to dry
your laundry in a more suitable way,
20
according to the different fabrics. Take note
of the duration drying time of the already
performed cycles.
Warning! Do not over dry the
laundry in order to avoid
creasing of fabrics or garment’s
shrinking.
Additional drying
If the laundry is still damp at the end of the
drying programme, select a short drying
cycle again.

Care and cleaning
• Use a normal measure of detergent, must
be a powder with biological properties.
You must DISCONNECT the appliance
from the electricity supply, before you can
carry out any cleaning or maintenance work.
External cleaning
Descaling
Clean the exterior cabinet of the appliance
with soap and water only, and then dry
thoroughly.
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.
Important! Do not use methylated spirits,
solvents or similar products to clean the
cabinet.
Cleaning the dispenser
drawer
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

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.
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.
27
Replace the drawer and run the rinse
programme without any clothes in the drum.
Washing drum
To aid cleaning, the top part of the additive
compartment should be removed.
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: Short Cotton Programme

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.
