6.1 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.
6.2 Temperatures
For heavily or normally
soiled white cottons and
linen (e.g. teacloths, towels,
tablecloths, sheets...).
For normally soiled,
colourfast garments (e.g.
shirts, night dresses,
pyjamas....) in linen, cotton
or synthetic fibres and for
lightly soiled white cotton

curtains), mixed laundry

Cold label pure new wool,
machine washable,
6.3 Before Loading The
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
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 a net.
6.4 Maximum Loads
Recommended loads are indicated
in the program charts. General
Cotton, linen:
drum full but not
too tightly packed;
drum no more
than half full;
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.
6.5 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
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 in cold water. 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
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

or special for woollens only.
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
The detergent and any additives

install the inlet hose and the
drain hose again.
Make sure that the temperature
is more than 0 °C before you
use the appliance again.
7. Open the water tap.
The manufacturer is not
responsible for damages
caused by low temperatures.
Certain problems are due to lack of simple maintenance or oversights, which can be
solved easily without calling out an engineer. Before contacting your local Service
Centre, please carry out the checks listed below.
During machine operation it is possible that the red Start/Pause pilot light flashes to
indicate that the machine is not working.

11.1 Unpacking
All transit bolts and packing
must be removed before
using the appliance.
You are advised to keep all transit
devices so that they can be
refitted if the machine ever has to
be transported again.
1. Use gloves. Remove the external film.
If necessary, use a cutter.
2. Remove the cardboard top.
3. Remove the polystyrene packaging
4. Remove the plastic bag on top of
the machine.
5. Open the door. Remove all the
items from the drum.
6. Put one of the polystyrene
packaging elements on the floor
behind the appliance. Carefully
put down the appliance with the
rear side on it. Make sure not to
damage the hoses.
7. Remove the polystyrene base.
8. Pull up the appliance in vertical
9. Remove the power supply cable
and the drain and inlet hoses from
the hose holders (A) on the rear of
the appliance.
10. Remove the three bolts. Use the
Spanner supplied with the appliance.
11. Pull out the plastic spacers.
12. Put the plastic caps in the holes.
You can find these caps in the
user manual bag.
11.2 Positioning
It is important that your washing
machine stands firm and level
on the floor to ensure correct
If you do not have a spirit level, as a
guide use the edge of a door frame,
cupboard or bench to check that
the washing machine is level.
The appliance must not be installed
behind a lockable door, a sliding
door or a door with a hinge on the
opposite side so that the washing
machine door is restricted.
Loosen or tighten the feet to adjust
the level. A correct adjustment of
the appliance level prevents the
vibration, noise and the movement
of the appliance when in operation.
Use a spirit level on the top and
side of the washing machine to
check the levels.
When the washing machine is
levelled, try to rock it from corner
to corner. If it does rock, adjust the
legs again until it is levelled and
does not rock.
The inlet hose must not be
lengthened. If it is too short and
you do not wish to move the tap,
you will have to purchase a new,
longer hose specially designed for
this type of use.
11.4 Water Drainage
Never place cardboard, wood or
similar materials under the machine
to compensate for any unevenness
in the floor.
Install the machine on a flat hard
floor. Make sure that air circulation
around the machine is not
impeded by carpets, rugs etc.
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.
Check that the machine does not
touch the wall or cupboard units.
11.3 Water Inlet
Connect the water inlet hose to a
tap with 3/4” BSP thread.
Use the hose supplied with the
washing machine. DO NOT USE
The other end of the inlet hose
which connects to the machine
can be turned in any direction.
Simply loosen the fitting, rotate the
hose and retighten the fitting,
making sure there are no water
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 no less than 60 cm
and no 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. Run it along the floor; only
the part near the drainage point
must be raised.
11.5 Electrical Connection
This machine is designed to
operate on a 220-240 V,
single-phase, 50 Hz supply.
“An incorrect power supply
may void your warranty.”
For correct functioning of the machine
the drain hose must remain hooked on
the proper support piece situated on the
top part of back side of the appliance.
Check that your domestic
electrical installation can take the
maximum load required (2.0 kW),
also taking into account any other
appliances in use.
Connect the machine to
an earthed socket outlet.
The manufacturer declines any
responsibility for damage or injury
through failure to comply with the
above safety precaution.
If the supply cord is
damaged, should the
appliance power supply
cable need to be
replaced, this shall be
carried out by our
Service Centre.
When the appliance is installed
the power supply cable must be
easily accessible.
If this appliance is supplied from a
cord extension set or electrical
portable outlet device, the cord
extension set or electrical portable
device must be positioned so that
it is not subject to splashing or
ingress of moisture.

To save water, energy and to
help protect the environment, we
recommend that you follow these
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
