Sorting the laundry
Maximum loads
Follow the wash code symbols on each
garment label and the manufacturer’s washing
instructions. Sort the laundry as follows:
whites, coloureds, synthetics, delicates,
Recommended loads are indicated in the
programme charts.
General rules:
Cotton, linen: drum full but not too tightly
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
for normally soiled white cottons
and linen (e.g. tea cloths, towels,
tablecloths, sheets...)
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.

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

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
The choice of detergent will depend on the
type of fabric (delicates, woollens, cottons,

Care and cleaning
You must DISCONNECT the appliance from
the electricity supply, before you can carry out
any cleaning or maintenance work.

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
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:

draining due to objects such as safety pins,
coins etc. blocking the pump.
Proceed as follows:
● Pull out the plug from the power socket.
● If necessary, wait until the water has cooled
● Open the drainage area door.

● When you intend to start the machine up
again, make sure that the room temperature
is above 0°C.
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.
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.

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.
● Redistribute the laundry.
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

Installation instruction
Transit security bars
Before starting the machine up, the transport
security bars must be removed as follows:
You are advised to keep all the transport
security bars. In case the appliance has to be
transported again.
1. Unscrew and remove the three rear screws
by means of a key.
Install the machine on a flat hard floor. Make
sure that air circulation around the machine is
not impeded by carpets, rugs etc. Check that
the machine does not touch the wall or other
kitchen units. Level the washing machine by
raising or lowering the feet. Once in the right
position fix the feet by pushing the nuts
against the base of the case. The feet may be
tight to adjust as they incorporate but the
machine MUST be level and stable.
If necessary, check the setting with a spirit
Accurate levelling prevents vibration, noise
and displacement of the machine during
operation.Never place cardboard, wood or
similar materials under the machine to
compensate for any unevenness in the floor.
Some vibration is inevitable, especially if
mounted on a wooden floor.
Sprung wooden floors are particularly
susceptible to vibration. For advice, consult a
builder. If possible, always place the machine
on a solid floor.
2. Open the porthole and remove the
polystyrene block fitted with adhesive tape
on the door seal.
3. Place the machine in an upright position
and remove the three plastic bolts.
4. Plug the 3 holes with the plastic plugs
which you can find in the envelope
containing the instruction booklet.

Water inlet
There should be a COLD WATER tap near the
washing machine with a screwing on
connection pipe of 3/4" for the water supply, a
sink, a wash basin or a drainage system in the
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. Connect the hose to a tap with a 3/4”
thread. Always use the hose supplied with
the appliance. 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.
Installation should
comply with local
water authority and
building regulations’
The appliance must be connected to a cold
water supply.
A minimum water pressure of 0.05 MPa (0.5
bar) is required for safe operation of the
If you cannot make the cold water connection
direct from the rising mains, you may be able
to operate the appliance from your cold water
storage system.
There should be a minimum distance of
5.02m (16.5 ft) between the appliance’s inlet
and the bottom of the water storage tank.
Water drainage
This appliance is designed to be permanently
plumbed into your home's drainage system
using one of the following methods.
1. Into a drainage standpipe.
“U” piece
2. If necessary turn the hose adequately by
unscrewing the nut at the rear of the
appliance. Now tighten the nut anew to
avoid leaks. (Open the tap and assure that
it does not leak and close it again.)
Firstly form a hook in the end of the drain
hose using the «U» piece supplied. Place the
drain hose into your standpipe, which should
have an internal diameter of approximately
38mm thus ensuring there is an air break
between the drain hose and standpipe.
When discharging into a standpipe ensure
that the top of the standpipe is no more than
90 cm (35.4'') and no less than 60 cm (23.6'')
above floor level.

Special conditions
If the floor is carpeted or covered with crumbly
or soft material, insert a rigid support base
under the feet to prevent noise, vibration or
displacement. The base should protrude a few
centimetres beyond the edges of the machine.
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 Force Centre. The joining piece
must have an internal diameter of 18mm.
If your drain hose
looks like this (see
below) you do not
require the «U»
piece. Just push the
hose firmly into the
2. Onto a sink outlet spigot.
If the outlet spigot has not been used before,
remove any blanking plug that may be in
The machine should NOT be placed on deep
pile carpeting.
Please ensure that when the appliance is
installed it is easily accessible for the engineer
in the event of a breakdown.
In the interest of the environment
Washing machines and dishwashers should
be connected to the FOUL drainage system,
the water will then be taken to a sewage
works for treatment before being discharged
safely into a river. It is essential that these
appliances are not connected to the surface
water drainage system as this water is
discharged directly into a river or stream and
may cause pollution.
If you require any further advice please
contact your local water authority.
Push the drain hose onto the spigot and
secure with a clip if required, ensure a loop is
formed in the drain hose (see diagram) to
prevent waste from the sink entering the
washing machine.
Before connecting the machine to new
pipework or to pipework that has not been
used for some time, run off a reasonable
amount of water to flush out any debris that
may have collected in the pipes.

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.
