ENGLISH

25

Problem

Spinning starts late or the machine does not spin:

The machine makes an unusual noise:

No water is visible in the drum:

The display shows the alarm code :

Possible cause/Solution

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 some minutes, the laundry is still not evenly distributed in the drum, the machine will not spin.

• The laundry load is perhaps to little, add more items, redistribute the load manually and then select the spinning programme.

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.

Machines based on modern technology operate very economically using very little water without affecting performance.

Anti-flooding system has activated.

• Pull out the plug from the power socket, close the water tap and contact the Service Force Centre.

13.4 Water drainage

There are different procedures to connect the drain hose:

With the plastic hose guide.

The inlet hose has a water stop device.

This device prevents water leaks in the hose because of its natural ageing. The red sector in the window «A» shows this fault .

If this occur, close the water tap and contact the service centre to replace the hose.

• On the edge of a sink.

• Make sure that the plastic guide cannot move when the appliance drains.

Attach the guide to the water tap or the wall.

• To a stand pipe with vent-hole.

Refer to the illustration. Directly into a drain pipe at a height of not less than

60 cm (23.6”) and not more than 100 cm (39.3”). The end of the drain hose must always be ventilated , i.e. the inner diameter of the drainpipe (min. 38 mm — min. 1.5”) must be larger than the external diameter of the drain hose.

ENGLISH

31

• If the end of the drain hose is this (see the drawing), you can push it directly into the stand pipe.

Without the plastic hose guide.

• To a sink spigot.

Refer to the illustration. Put the drain hose in the spigot and tighten it with a clip. Make sure that the drain hose makes a loop to prevent that remaining particles go in the appliance from the sink.

• Directly to a built-in drain pipe in the room wall and tighten it with a clip.

You can extend the drain hose to maximum 400 cm. Contact the service centre for the other drain hose and the extension.
