Installation
GB
! This instruction manual should be kept in a safe
place for future reference. If the washing machine
is sold, transferred or moved, make sure that the
instruction manual remains with the machine so
that the new owner is able to familiarise himself/
herself with its operation and features.
! Read these instructions carefully: they
contain vital information relating to the safe
installation and operation of the appliance.
Unpacking and levelling
Unpacking
1. Remove the washing machine from its
packaging.
2. Make sure that the washing machine has
not been damaged during the transportation
process. If it has been damaged, contact the
retailer and do not proceed any further with
the installation process.
3. Remove the 4
protective screws
(used during
transportation)
and the rubber
washer with the
corresponding
spacer, located on
the rear part of the
appliance (see figure).
4. Close off the holes using the plastic plugs
provided.
5. Keep all the parts in a safe place: you will
need them again if the washing machine
needs to be moved to another location.
! Packaging materials should not be used as
toys for children.
Levelling
1. Install the washing machine on a flat sturdy
floor, without resting it up against walls,
furniture cabinets or anything else.
2. If the floor is
not perfectly level,
compensate for
any unevenness
by tightening or
loosening the
adjustable front
feet (see figure); the
angle of inclination,
measured in relation
to the worktop, must
not exceed 2°.
2
Levelling the machine correctly will provide
it with stability, help to avoid vibrations and
excessive noise and prevent it from shifting
while it is operating. If it is placed on carpet or
a rug, adjust the feet in such a way as to allow
a sufficient ventilation space underneath the
washing machine.
Connecting the electricity and
water supplies
Connecting the water inlet hose
1. Connect the supply
pipe by screwing it to
a cold water tap using
a ¾ gas threaded
connection (see
figure).
Before performing
the connection, allow
the water to run freely
until it is perfectly
clear.
2. Connect the
inlet hose to the
washing machine by
screwing it onto the
corresponding water
inlet of the appliance,
which is situated on
the top right-hand
side of the rear part
of the appliance (see
figure).
3. Make sure that the hose is not folded over
or bent.
! The water pressure at the tap must fall within
the values indicated in the Technical details
table (see page 5).
! If the inlet hose is not long enough, contact a
specialised shop or an authorised technician.
! Never use second-hand hoses.
! Use the ones supplied with the machine.
Connecting the drain hose
65 - 100 cm
Where it connects to
the waste water pipe
cut end off spigot or
remove the blanking cap
Connect the drain
hose, without bending
it, to a draining duct or
a wall drain situated
between 65 and 100
cm from the floor;
The drain hose may
be connected to
an under-sink trap.
Before connecting
the drain hose from
the machine ensure
that any blanks or
removable ends have
been taken off the
spigot.
If it is placed over the
edge of a basin or sink
be sure the free end of
the hose should not
be underwater.
! We advise against the use of hose extensions; in
case of absolute need, the extension must have the
same diameter as the original hose and must not
exceed 150 cm in length. Ensure that if the drain
hose is pushed into a standpipe, that the end does
not go down more than 15cms (6 inches). If the hose
is pushed down too far, this may cause the machine
to self -syphon ie. continuously empty as it is filling.
Electric connection
Before plugging the appliance into the mains
socket, make sure that:
• the socket is earthed and in compliance with
the applicable law;
• the socket is able to sustain the appliance’s
maximum power load indicated on the Technical
Data Plate fixed on the machine;
• the supply voltage is included within the values
indicated on the Technical Data Plate fixed on
the machine.
• the socket is compatible with the washing
machine’s plug. If this is not the case, replace
the socket or the plug.

fused plug it can be plugged into a 13 amp
socket for immediate use. Before using the
appliance please read the instructions below.
WARNING - THIS APPLIANCE MUST BE EARTHED.
THE FOLLOWING OPERATIONS SHOULD BE
CARRIED OUT BY A QUALIFIED ELECTRICIAN.
Replacing the fuse:
When replacing a faulty fuse, a 13 amp ASTA
approved fuse to BS 1362 should always be
used, and the fuse cover re-fitted. If the fuse
cover is lost, the plug must not be used until a
replacement is obtained.
Replacement fuse covers:
If a replacement fuse cover is fitted, it must be of
the correct colour as indicated by the coloured
marking or the colour that is embossed in words
on the base of the plug. Replacements can be
obtained directly from your nearest Service Depot.
Removing the plug:
If your appliance has a non-rewireable moulded
plug and you should wish to re-route the mains
cable through partitions, units etc., please
ensure that either:
the plug is replaced by a fused 13 ampere
rewireable plug bearing the BSI mark of approval.
or:
the mains cable is wired directly into a 13
amp cable outlet, controlled by a switch, (in
compliance with BS 5733) which is accessible
without moving the appliance.
Disposing of the plug:
Ensure that before disposing of the plug itself,
you make the pins unusable so that it cannot be
accidentally inserted into a socket.
Instructions for connecting cable to an alternative
plug:
Important: the wires in the mains lead are
coloured in accordance with the following code:

Care and maintenance
GB
Cutting off the water and electricity
supplies
•Turn off the water tap after every wash cycle.
This will limit wear on the hydraulic system inside
the washing machine and help to prevent leaks.
•Unplug the washing machine when cleaning it
and during all maintenance work.
Cleaning the washing machine
• The outer parts and rubber components
of the appliance can be cleaned using a soft
cloth soaked in lukewarm soapy water. Do not
use solvents or abrasives.
• The washing machine has a “Auto Clean”
programme for its internal parts that must be
run with no load in the drum.
For maximum performance you may want
to use either the detergent (i.e. a quantity
10% the quantity specified for lightly-soiled
garments) or special additives to clean the
washing machine. We recommend running a
cleaning programme every 40 wash cycles.
To start the programme press buttons A and
B simultaneously for 5 seconds (see figure).
The programme will start automatically and
will last approximately 70 minutes. To stop the
cycle press the START/PAUSE button.
Cleaning the pump
The washing machine is fitted with a selfcleaning pump which does not require any
maintenance. Sometimes, small items (such
as coins or buttons) may fall into the protective
pre-chamber at the base of the pump.
! Make sure the wash cycle has finished and
unplug the appliance.
To access the pre-chamber:

Push & Wash function will be deactivated). To start the Push & Wash cycle press and hold the relative button for 2 seconds.
The lit indicator light indicates that the cycle has started. This wash cycle is ideal for cotton or synthetic fabrics, as it washes
at a temperature of 30° and a maximum spin speed of 1000 rpm. Maximum load 4 kg. (Cycle duration 45’).
How does it work?
1. Load the laundry (cotton and/or synthetic garments) and close the door.
2. Pour the detergent and additives.
3. Start the programme by pressing and holding the Push & Wash button for 2 seconds. The relative indicator light turns
green and the door will lock (the DOOR LOCKED symbol turns on).
N.B.: starting the wash cycle through the Push & Wash button activates an automatic non-customisable cycle
recommended for cotton and synthetic fabrics. This programme does not allow for setting any additional options.
To open the door while an automatic cycle is under way, press the START/PAUSE button; if the DOOR LOCKED symbol
is switched off the door may be opened. Press the START/PAUSE button again to restart the wash cycle from the point at
which it was interrupted.
4. Once the programme is finished, the END indicator light turns on.

Detergents and laundry
Detergent dispenser drawer
Successful washing results also depend on the correct dose
of detergent: adding too much detergent will not necessarily
result in a more efficient wash, and may in fact cause
build up on the inside of your appliance and contribute to
environmental pollution.
! Do not use hand washing detergents because these create
too much foam.
! Use powder detergent for white cotton garments, for prewashing, and for washing at temperatures over 60°C.
! Follow the instructions given on the detergent packaging.
Open the detergent dispenser
drawer and pour in the
detergent or washing additive,
as follows.
Compartment 1: Do not pour detergent into the middle
compartment 1.
Compartment 2: Washing detergent (powder or liquid)
If liquid detergent is used, it is recommended that the
removable plastic partition A (supplied) be used for proper
dosage. If powder detergent is used, place the partition into
slot B.
Compartment 3: Additives (fabric softeners, etc.)
The fabric softener must not exceed the “max” level indicated
on the central pin.
Coloureds: a 30°C cycle that helps to preserve the colours;
suitable for coloured cotton and synthetic garments. It allows
for reducing consumption of energy for heating the water,
while guaranteeing excellent results. Suitable for lightly soiled
garments.
Delicates: use programme 4 to wash very delicate
garments. It is advisable to turn the garments inside out
before washing them. For best results, use liquid detergent
on delicate garments.
Mixed: a 40°C cycle for washing cotton and synthetic
garments together. Suitable for lightly soiled underwear.
Sport --(programme 11) is designed for washing lightly
soiled sports clothing (tracksuits, shorts, etc.); for best results,
we recommend not exceeding the maximum load indicated
in the “Programme table”. We recommend using liquid
detergent, and adding the amount suitable for a half-load.
Duvet: to wash double or single duvets (the weight of which
should not exceed 3.5 kg), cushions or clothes padded with
goose down such as puffa jackets, use the special wash
programme number 12. We recommend that duvets are
placed in the drum with their edges folded inwards (see
figure) and that no more than ¾ of the total volume of the
drum is used. To achieve the best results, we recommend
that a liquid detergent is used and placed inside the detergent
dispenser drawer.
Preparing the laundry
•
•
•
Divide the laundry according to:
- the type of fabric/the symbol on the label
- the colours: separate coloured garments from whites.
Empty all garment pockets and check the buttons.
Do not exceed the values listed in the “Table of wash
cycles”, which refer to the weight of the laundry when dry.
How much does your laundry weigh?
1 sheet 400-500 g
1 pillow case 150-200 g
1 tablecloth 400-500 g
1 bathrobe 900-1.200 g
1 towel 150-250 g
Special wash cycles
Daily cotton: a 30°C cycle for cotton garments. It allows
for reducing consumption of energy for heating the water,
while guaranteeing excellent results. Suitable for lightly soiled
garments.
Daily synthetics: a 30°C cycle for synthetic garments. It
allows for reducing consumption of energy for heating the
water, while guaranteeing excellent results. Suitable for lightly
soiled garments.
Wool - Woolmark Apparel Care - Blue:
the wool wash cycle of this machine has been approved by
The Woolmark Company for the washing of wool garments
labelled as “hand wash” provided that the products are
washed according to the instructions on the garment label
and those issued by the manufacturer of this washing
machine. (M1127)
In UK, Eire, Hong Kong and India the Woolmark trade mark
is a Certification trade mark.
Anti odour: use programme 14 (Synthetics) for washing
garments with bad odours (e.g. smoke, sweat, fried food).
The programme is designed to remove bad odours while
preserving the fabric fibres.

Load balancing system
Before every spin cycle, to avoid excessive vibrations
before every spin and to distribute the load in a uniform
manner, the drum rotates continuously at a speed which
is slightly greater than the washing rotation speed. If,
after several attempts, the load is not balanced correctly,
the machine spins at a reduced spin speed. If the load is
excessively unbalanced, the washing machine performs
the distribution process instead of spinning. To encourage
improved load distribution and balance, we recommend
small and large garments are mixed in the load.

Troubleshooting
Your washing machine could occasionally fail to work. Before contacting the Technical Assistance Service (see “ Service”),
make sure that the problem cannot be solved easily using the following list.
GB
Problem:
Possible causes / Solutions:
The machine does not switch on.
• The appliance is not plugged into the socket fully, or not enough to make contact.
• There is no power to the socket, or the fuse has blown in the mains plug.
The wash cycle does not start.
• The door is not closed properly.
• The ON/OFF button has not been pressed.
• The START/PAUSE button has not been pressed.
• The water tap has not been turned on to allow water to flow into the machine.
• A delayed start has been set.
The machine does not fill with
water or ‘H20’ in the display.
• The water inlet hose is kinked.
• The water inlet hose is not connected to the water supply.
• The water pressure is too low.
• The water tap has not been turned on to allow water to flow into the machine.
• There is no water supply to the house.
• The inlet valve filter is blocked.
• The START/PAUSE button has not been pressed.
The machine continuously fills with
water and continually drains away
or Water left in the drum
or Stuck on wash.
• The top of the drain hose is too low - It must be fitted at a height between 65
and 100 cm from the floor (see “Installation”).
• The drain hose is connected incorrectly to the sink trap allowing water to run
into the machine, the drain hose must be positioned higher than the bottom of
the sink to prevent water flowing down the drain hose.
• The end of the drain hose has been pushed too far down the standpipe, the
‘U’ bracket should be fitted 100 mm from the end of the drain hose.
The machine does not drain or spin
- (error lights flashing).
• The Pump filter is blocked.
• The drain hose is kinked (see “Installation”).
• New Installation - The blanking cap or spigot has not been removed if
connected under a sink.
• The drain hose or sink trap is blocked.
The machine does spin.
• The Spin Speed is set to “OFF”.
The programme takes too long.
• Programme times will vary due to water pressure, the incoming water temperature
and if the wash load goes out of balance. This will increase the programme times
accordingly (see ‘ The machine wont spin properly’ next page).
The Display sticks at one ‘time to
end’ for more than 1 Minute or the
Display changes the estimated ‘Time
to End’ during the programme.
• The display time is for guidance only - it is not a precise time to finish and
may vary.
The machine vibrates a lot during
the spin cycle.
• The feet have not been adjusted, enabling the machine to rock.
• New Installation - Either the Transit Bolts including the plastic spacers, or the
Polystyrene Packaging have not been removed when installing the machine.
• The machine is trapped between cabinets and/or walls.
• The load is in a slight out of balance condition and machine is spinning, but at
a lower speed.
Push & Wash does not activate.
• After switching on the machine a control other than Push & Wash was activated. Switch the machine off and press the Push & Wash button.
15
GB
The machine is noisy.
• There will always be some motor, pump and drum noise during spin.
The machine wont spin properly.
• Out of Balance detected when attempting to go into a spin cycle - If this
happens the machine will continue to try to repeat the distribution of the load
required before the machine will go into higher spin speeds - This will increase
the programme time accordingly. This is a safety feature to prevent damage.
Out of Balance can be caused by washing a single heavy item (eg duvet, quilt,
etc). - Try the programme again using a different load.
The machine leaks from the
dispenser.
• The dispenser drawer is blocked with detergent and requires cleaning.
• The water pressure is too high and requires turning down - turn down the tap
on the water supply pipe slightly and try again.
• The machine is tilting forwards - It must be level when in its final position.
The machine leaks (other than
dispenser).
• The fill hose is loose, check both the cabinet and tap ends.
• The fill hose is tight but still leaks, if so replace the rubber washers, or the fill
hose is missing the rubber washer.
• The drain hose is not fixed in properly.
The option lights and the START/
PAUSE indicator light are flash
rapidly and an error code appears
on the display (eg F-01, F-..).
• Switch off the machine and unplug it, wait for approximately 1 minute and then
switch back on again. If the problem persists contact Technical Assistance
Centre.
The machine smells.
• The machine requires a service wash. Run a “Auto Clean” wash cycle with
detergent and no laundry.
The machine door cannot be
opened.
• The door will not open until the door lock indicator light goes out shortly after
the program has finished.
• If there is no power to the machine you need to perform the manual unlocking
procedure.
Door Seal damaged at the bottom.
• The door seal has drainage holes at the bottom - This is normal.
The water level is too low when
the machine is washing.
• The water level is correct if it can be seen at the bottom of the door.
There is too much foam.
• The detergent is not suitable for machine washing (it should display the text
‘for washing machines’ or ‘hand and machine wash’ or the like).
• Too much detergent was used - less detergent is required in soft water.
After completing the programme,
or before starting a programme,
the machine has turned itself off
(no lights).
• To comply with new energy saving regulations the machine is fitted with an
automatic standby system. Press ‘ON/OFF’ button for 3 seconds to activate
the machine, it can then either be switched off or a new programme selected.
General.
• Your washing machine contains sensors that monitor progress during the wash
cycle (eg: Water Levels, Temperatures, Out of Balance loads, Wash time/progress).
Normally, if your machine successfully completes the cycle, there is unlikely to
be anything wrong!
Remember, you will be charged for a service call for problems caused by incorrect installation, as
indicated on pages 2 to 4.
Not emptying contents from pockets may cause pump or drain blockages, or may damage the machine.
Do not wash items which do not have a wash label, or wash items that are not intended as machine
washable.
