General safety instructions
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
Changing the technical parameters, or any making other modifications to the appliance is dangerous.
During the course of the high temperature program the door heats up to a high temperature. Do not
touch the door!
Ensure that small household pets cannot get into the drum. It is therefore better to always check the inside
of the drum before use.
Items such as coins, safety pins, nails, bolts, stones and other heavy or sharp items can cause considerable
damage and do not belong in the appliance.
Use only the recommended amount of fabric softener and washing detergents. If you use a higher amount
than is recommended, the fabric could be damaged.
Always use the amount of detergent recommended by the manufacturer.
Small pieces of laundry such as socks, shoelaces, washing bands, etc. should be washed in a special
purpose washing bag or in a pillow case, because the individual items could become jammed between
the tube and the rotating drum.
Do not use the washing machine to wash products from metal skeletons, fabrics which are not hemmed
or that snag.
After use, before cleaning or maintenance always disconnect the washing machine from the power supply
and turn off the water inlet.
Never attempt to repair the appliance yourself. Repairs carried out by inexperienced persons may lead to
injuries or serious damage to the appliance. Contact your local service centre for repairs. Always request
original spare parts.
Do not use multi-sockets or extension cords.
Do not plug in the appliance with a defective power cord.
If the power cord is damaged, have it replaced by the manufacturer or an authorised service technician to
prevent hazardous situations.

Do not pull the power plug out of the power socket by pulling on the cord. Hold the power cord by holding
the power plug directly.
Do not connect the power plug if you have wet hands.
Never touch the appliance if you have wet hands or feet.
Never open the detergent drawer while washing.
Never attempt to open the washing machine door while washing.
Because the washing machine can become very hot during operation, do not touch the hose during the
draining or filling process.
In the case of any defect, first turn off the appliance, disconnect it from the power supply and shut off the
water inlet. Do not attempt to repair the device yourself. Contact the nearest authorised service.

Do not allow children to play with the washing machine.
Keep household pets at a safe distance from the washing machine.
The washing machine should only be used by persons fully instructed about the instructions, provisions
and controls described in this user's manual.
This washing machine is designed for domestic use only. The use of the washing machine for commercial
purposes voids the warranty.
Do not install the appliance on a carpet or another similar surface, which could block the ventilation
openings on the underside.
Do not place the drain hose into a container, bucket or sink.
Recommendation
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
Long term contact of washing detergents and fabric softeners with air will cause them to dry out and stick
to the walls of the drawer. To prevent this from happening, fill the drawer with washing detergent and
fabric softener immediately before washing.
We recommend the use of the prewash only for heavily soiled laundry.
Do not exceed the maximum loading capacity of the drum.
This appliance must not be used by persons (including children) with physical, sensory or psychological
impairments or by inexperienced persons, unless properly trained or schooled in the safe use of the
appliance, or unless they have been properly supervised by a person who will be responsible for their
safety. Children should be supervised so as not to play with the appliance.
If you will not be using the washing machine for an extended period of time, pull it out of the power
socket, shut off the water inlet and leave the door open so that the inside of the washing machine can dry
out and so unpleasant odours are not created.
As a result of quality control procedures some water may remain in the washing machine. This will not
damage the washing machine in any way.
We recommend that the first wash is performed using the White 90 - 95° program (depending on the model)
without any laundry, put 1/2 a measuring cup of detergent into the second detergent compartment.

PART 2: INSTALLATION
Carefully read the entire user's manual before putting your washing machine into operation and store it in
a safe place for future reference.
Removal of the transportation screws
•
•
•
•
•
You must remove the transportation screws located in the back part of the washing machine before
putting it into operation.
Loosen the bolts using a correctly sized spanner, turning it anticlockwise. (PIC. 1)
Remove the bolts by pulling them out. (PIC. 2)
Insert plastic plugs found in the accessories pouch, into the transportation screw openings.
(PIC. 3)
Carefully store the transportation screws removed from the washing machine for future transport
purposes.
NOTE:
Defects caused by starting the washing machine with the transportation screws installed are not covered
by the warranty.

Levelling the washing machine
•
•
Do not place the washing machine on carpets or similar surfaces.
To ensure quite and vibration free operation of your washing machine, you should place it on an even,
non-slip and firm surface.
You can level the washing machine by adjusting the adjustable feet:
• First loosen the plastic nut.
• Adjust by screwing out the feet upwards or downwards.
• After levelling the washing machine, re-tighten the plastic nut by screwing it upwards.
• Never level the washing machine on an uneven surface by placing cardboard, wooden blocks, etc. under
the feet.
Electrical connection
•
•
•
Technical specifications of your washing machine: 220-240 V ~ 50 Hz.
A special grounding plug is attached to the power cord of your washing machine. This plug must be fully
inserted into a grounded power socket (with 10 A). The electrical fuse or circuit breaker to which the
washing machine is connected should be rated at 10A. If you do not have such sockets and fuses in your
home, have them installed by a qualified electrician.
Our company takes no responsibility for whatever damages caused by using the washing machine without
grounding.
Water supply connection
•
•
•
•
Depending on the functions of your washing machine the washing machine is equipped with either a
single water inlet (cold) or a double water inlet (cold/hot). The hose with the white end is intended for the
cold water inlet and the hose with the red end is intended for the hot water inlet (on washing machines
with a hot and cold water inlet).
So that water does not leak from the connection points, the hose kit also includes 1 seal (for washing
machines with a cold water inlet) or 2 seals (for washing machines with hot and cold water inlets). Install
these seals on the end of the water inlet hose connected to the tap.
Connect the hose with the white end to the water inlet valve with the white filter and the hose with the red
end to the water inlet valve with the red filter (the second mentioned option applies to washing machines
with a hot and cold water connection). Tighten the plastic connecting parts using your hand. A qualified
plumber will provide a safer connection.
The water pressure of 0.1 - 1 MPa in your water tap will ensure a more efficient operation of your washing
machine (the pressure of 0.1 MPa equates to a flow rate of more than 8 litres of water per minute from
a fully open tap).

01/2011
•
•
•
•
After the connections are complete, check that the connections do leak, by fully opening the tap.
Check that the supply hoses are not bent, broken or cracked.
Connect the supply hose to a 3/4" threaded water tap.
If the washing machine has a dual water inlet (for hot and cold water), the temperature of the hot water
should not exceed 70 °C.
Cold water inlet (valve with a white filter)
Hot water inlet (valve with a red filter)
Water drain connection
•
•
•
•
Check that the supply hoses are not bent, twisted, cracked or excessively stretched.
The drain hose should be installed at a height of min. 60 cm and max. 100 cm above the ground.
The end of the drain hose may be inserted directly into the drain opening or to a special end fitting
attached to the drain of the wash basin.
Never attempt to extend the length of the drain hose by adding extra parts.
NOTE:
Do not place the drain hose into a container, bucket or sink.

Function buttons
Rinse hold
We recommend you use this function if you cannot immediately take the laundry out of the washing machine
after the end of the program. This will prevent it becoming crumpled. If you press this button, the water from
the last rinse will not be released. If you want the program to continue from the place where it was interrupted,
press the same button again.
If you do not wish to spin your laundry or you wish it to be spun in a gentle manner, move the program selector
to the O position (off ). Turn the program selector to one of the draining or spinning programs, which you
desire and press the Start/pause button. If you selected the rinsing program, the washing machine will drain
the water. If you select the spinning program, the washing machine will activate the spinning and then the
program will end.
Easy ironing
Using this function will ensure that after being washed the laundry will be less crumpled.
You will achieve better results if before filling the washing machine and starting washing you leave the laundry
to soak in the water and detergent. We recommend the use of this function for heavily soiled laundry.
Extra rinse
Apart from the standard rinse you can set an additional rinse, which the washing machine performs using this
function in all washing programs.
WARNING!
If you forget to set an additional function and the washing machine has already started washing,
press the additional function button. If its indicator light turns on, the additional function has been
activated. If its indicator light does not turn on, the additional function has not been activated.

PART 4: WASHING LAUNDRY
•
•
Connect the washing machine to the power socket.
Open the water tap.
First wash cycle
There may be some water left over inside the washing machine from the factory tests. We therefore recommend
to perform the first wash without laundry so as to drain this water; put half a measure of standard detergent
into compartment 2, which is used for washing detergents and select the program for cotton at 90 °C.
Before actually washing
Sorting laundry
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
Sort the laundry according to its type (cotton, synthetics, delicates, wool, etc.), washing temperature and
the level of dirtiness.
Never wash whites together with coloured laundry.
Because your new coloured laundry may release some of its colour, wash it separately.
Before placing the laundry into the washing machine check pockets for any forgotten items. In this way
you will prevent damaging your clothes and the washing machine.
Do up zips and buttons on the laundry.
From curtains and drapes remove the plastic or metal hooks or insert the into a wash bag and tie it up.
Turn clothing such as pants, knitted fabrics, T-shirts and singlets inside out.
Wash small items such as socks and handkerchiefs in a wash bag.
Washing up to 90 ˚C
Washing up to 60 ˚C
Washing up to 30 ˚C
Do not wash in a washing machine
Placing clothing inside the washing machine
• Open the door of the washing machine.
• Spread the laundry evenly inside the washing machine.
• Insert one item at a time.
• When closing the door, make sure that no laundry has been caught in the door.
• Firmly close the washing machine door, otherwise the washing machine will not start.
Detergent dosage
The amount of detergent you use in the washing machine depends on the following criteria:
• The consumption of detergent changes with the degree of dirtiness of the laundry. Do not use a prewash
for lightly soiled laundry and use a small amount of detergent in the 2 compartment for washing
detergents.
• For excessively soiled laundry select a program with a prewash, put ¼ of a detergent measuring cup into
compartment 1 for washing detergents and put the remainder of the measuring cup into compartment 2.
• Use washing detergents specially made for automatic washing machines. The dosage of the detergent is
shown on the packaging.
• Increased water hardness necessitates the use of an increased amount of detergent in the wash.
EN - 10
Copyright © 2011, Fast ČR, a. s.
01/2011
•
•
•
•
Increases laundry amounts also necessitate the use of an increased amount of detergent in the wash.
Pour fabric softeners (conditioners) into the fabric softener compartment in the detergent drawer. Do
not go over the MAX mark. Otherwise the fabric softener will flow out the siphon into the water used for
washing.
If the fabric softener is very thick then dilute it with water before placing it in the compartment. The thick
fabric softener could clog up your siphon and so prevent the fabric softener from entering the washing
machine.
You can use liquid detergents for all washing programs without a prewash. For this purpose install into the
second detergent compartment in the drawer a measuring cup and pour in the detergent according to the
mark shown on the measuring cup.
Operating the washing machine
Selecting programs and functions
Select a program and additional functions appropriate for your laundry according to table 1.

PART 5: MAINTENANCE AND CLEANING
•
•
Disconnect the washing machine from the power socket.
Shut off the water inlet.
The water inlet filters
There are filters connected to the hose ends at the tap end and at the end of the inlet valves, which prevent dirt
and foreign materials contained in water entering the washing machine. If the washing machine is not filling
up with a sufficient amount of water despite the water inlet being open, clean these filters.
•
•
•
•
Disconnect the supply hose.
Using tweezers take the filters out of the inlet valves and wash them with a brush.
Using your hand take out the filters on the supply hoses at the end connected to the tap together with the
seals and clean them.
After cleaning the filters put them back in the same way.
Attention:
The water inlet valves may be blocked by a contaminated water supply or because of inadequate
necessary maintenance, or the valves may be damaged, which may cause a water to constantly
flow through. For these reasons such types of malfunctions are not covered by the warranty.
The pump filter
The pump filtration system extends the life of the pump, which is used for draining dirty water. It ensures that
lint from the laundry does not enter the pump. We recommend you clean the pump filter every 2-3 months.
Clean the pump filter as follows:
•
•
•
•
•
•
Open the cover on the kickplate.
Before opening the filter cover, place a container in front of it, into which the water remaining in the
washing machine will flow.
Loosen the filter cover by turning it anticlockwise and drain the water.
Remove all foreign material from the filter.
Check by hand that the pump rotates.
After cleaning the pump, return the filter by turning it clockwise.
EN - 14
Copyright © 2011, Fast ČR, a. s.
01/2011
•
•
Reattach the kickplate cover.
Don't forget that if you do not attach it correctly, water will leak from your washing machine.
WARNING!
Danger of scalding!
Because the water in the pump may be very hot, wait until it has cooled down.
The drawer for washing detergents
Over time washing detergent deposits may accumulate in the drawer and in the washing machine opening.
Therefore, the washing detergent drawer needs to be regularly cleaned from accumulated deposits. Take the
drawer out as follows:
• Pull the drawer out completely (PIC. 1).
• Fully press down the lid of the siphon inside the drawer and pull the drawer until you pull it out (PIC. 2).
• Wash with water and an old toothbrush.
• Remove the deposits accumulated inside the drawer opening without them being allowed to enter the
washing machine.
• Once the drawer is dry, insert it back into the washing machine in the reverse sequence here described.
PIC. 1
PIC. 2

The siphon plug
Take out the washing detergent drawer. Pull out the siphon plug and thoroughly clean off fabric softener
residue. Reinsert the cleaned siphon plug in its place. Check that it is properly inserted.
Siphon plug
The washing machine cabinet
Clean the washing machine from the outside using lukewarm water and a gentle cleaning agent, which will
not damage the surface coat of the washing machine cabinet. After rinsing with clean water, wipe the washing
machine with a soft and dry wiping cloth.
WARNING!
If you have installed the washing machine in a place where the ambient temperature falls below
0°C and you will not be using it, do the following:
• Connect the washing machine to a power socket.
• Close the water tap and disconnect the supply hose or hoses.
• Insert the end of the drain hose and supply hose into a container on the ground.
• Set to program selector to the drain program.
• The program indicator light will turn on.
• Start the program by pressing the Start/pause button.
• After the program has finished (the end indicator light will turn on) disconnect the washing
machine from the power socket.
After completing these steps the remaining water in the washing machine will be drained, which
will avoid the danger of it freezing inside the washing machine. If you wish to use the washing
