Warning!
•
Do not wash unhemmed or torn items as they may fray.
•
Unrelated items in the wash may damage the garments or parts of the washing machine. So: empty pockets
and turn them inside-out, and remove wheels from curtains or wrap them in a mesh bag.
•
Wash very small items (belts, handkerchiefs, socks, padded bras, etc.) in a white canvas bag. Fasten pressstuds and zips and sew on loose buttons.
•
The use of modern detergents and the correct washing temperature is generally sufficient to remove stains
from fabrics. However, some difficult stains such as grass, fruit, egg, blood, rust, ballpoint pen, etc. should be
dealt with before washing. Depending on the type of fabric, there are a large number of commercial
stain removers on the market. In all cases, stains should be cleaned or diluted at once, since the older
they are, the harder they are to remove.
•
Failure to comply with washing guidance symbols may result in damage to the items washed.
Wool – Only wool marked as pure new wool, with the
mark, or labelled "shrink-proof, machine-washable"
can be washed in a washing machine on the specific programme; other types of wool should be hand-washed or
dry-cleaned.
4.2 OPENING THE DOOR
The appliance is fitted with a safety device which prevents the door from being opened while the programme is in
progress.
1.
Check that all the water has been drained from the tank and the drum is at a standstill.
Warning!
•
If the washing programme is interrupted, it will be from 3 to 15 minutes before the door can be opened, depending on the temperature reached inside the appliance.
Warning!
The water may still be boiling hot if the wash was at high temperature.
Do not open the door if there is still water in the drum!
4.3 LOADS OF WASHING
As far as possible, to save electricity, it is more economical to wash complete loads of the various types of
fabric. Shake out the washing before loading, and alternate large and small items. It is best to weight the load the
first few times, after which you will be able to rely on your experience. As a guide, the following is a list of the average weights of the standard items:
9
EN
4.4 LOADING THE ITEMS FOR WASHING
1.
2.
3.
4.
Open the door and load the washing, distributing it evenly over the drum, with items opened out and not
bundled together; if possible, large and small items should be well mixed.
The washing machine covered by this manual can be loaded with up to 7kg of washing for each wash.
If this weight is exceeded, the washing results will be poor and the appliance may malfunction.
To save energy it is more economical to wash full loads of the various types of fabric, following the
guidance on quantities provided in the “Programmes Table” supplied in this manual.
Close the door by pressing against the frame until you hear it click shut. Take care not to trap items of
washing between the door and the rubber gasket.
Warning!
• If the door is not properly closed, a safety device prevents the washing machine from starting.
• Do not exceed the maximum load: overloading adversely affects washing results.
4.5 ADDING DETERGENT AND ADDITIVE
The internal tray comprises three compartments, marked with the symbols
prewash detergent
main wash detergent
for fabric conditioner, starch, additives, etc. (e.g. treatment products). The additives are added to
the washing tank automatically during the final rinse.
The main wash detergent compartment has a tang allowing the use of liquid detergent. To insert it, pull it towards
the front and then lower it.
Following the recommendations in the "Programmes Table" supplied
with this manual, place the detergent and any additives in the drawer
before the start of the programme.
Never fill with liquids above the maximum level marked; otherwise
the trays will empty too quickly.
Before pouring dense additives into the container, dilute with a little
water to ensure they do not clog the outlet.
Use only low-foam detergents suitable for use in a washing machine.
The amount of detergent must be decided in relation of the hardness of the water, the type and quantity of items loaded, and their
degree of dirt.
This will provide the desired effect with optimal detergent consumption.
On detergent packs the recommended dose is indicated for 4 levels of water hardness and for loads of 4-5 kg of
washing with average dirt levels.
Request information about the water's hardness from your water supply company.

ASSEMBLY INSTRUCTIONS FOR BUILT-IN WASHING MACHINES
IMPORTANT - This machine complies with current safety regulations governing electrical appliances and, to ensure user safety, it must be installed by a
qualified technician as required by current legislation
Size of cabinet
The minimum dimensions of the cabinet are: height 820 mm,
width 600 mm, depth 584 mm (fig. 1).
Applying the
panel
The panel may be attached to the left- or right-hand side of the
washing machine (fig. 2)
The machine is supplied fitted for a left-hand side panel attachment as the right-hand side is fitted with the push-pull lock
(upper part) and the rubber pad (lower part).
Should you wish to use the magnetic lock instead of the pushpull lock, remove the push-pull lock support and fit the supplied
magnetic lock support.
Important! Before fitting the panel (removing all the hinge
and locking elements from the front) make sure the washing machine is totally disconnected from the mains power
supply.
Warning - To fix the panel on the right-hand side (direction of
opening opposite to that of the door) dismount the push-pull
lock (or the magnet lock) from the front of the machine and the
rubber pad (fig. 3-A) and fit them on the opposite side (fig. 3B).
All the elements applied to the front of the washing machine
must be remounted correctly (no holes must remain open) in
order to make it impossible to touch live components inside the
machine.
Our company declines all liability for failure to observe the
above safety requirement.
Using the template
1) Measure the height of the kitchen baseboard: the height of
the wooden panel is obtained by first establishing the height
of the kitchen baseboard.
E.g.: for a 100 mm high baseboard, the maximum height of
the panel is 720 mm. If the height of the baseboard must be
increased, the height of the wooden panel must be reduced.
4
Place the template of the inner side of the panel and match the
height of the baseboard with the lower edge of the panel (fig. 4)
using the graduated scale. Make sure the template is horizontally centred with reference to the vertical lines marked at the
ends.
After placing the template in the correct position, trace the positions of the following holes, pushing in with the tip of your pencil:
• holes for the hinges and hinge screws (fig. 4)
• holes for fixing the metal plate (if the magnetic lock is
used), or the hook for the push-pull lock (fig. 4, A - B)
Applying the
panel elements
and fixing the
panel
1) Drill the holes for the hinges (fig. 5), the hook for the pushpull lock (fig. 5), or the metal plate if you decide to use the
magnetic lock (fig. 6), and the holes for fixing the hinges
(fig. 6).
2) The 13 mm depth of the 2 mm holes, for fixing the hinges
and a metal plate for the magnet lock, only applies to the
solid wood panel. For the chipboard panel, simply drill the
upper coating – fig. 6.
3) Screw the two hinges to the panel (fig. 7)
4) Mount the hook for the push-pull lock or the metal plate for
the magnet lock on the side opposite the hinges (fig. 7).
5) Fix the panel to the washing machine following the instructions shown in fig. 8.
Adjusting the
hinges
If, after applying the panel to the washing machine, it is slightly
inclined or off-centre with respect to the front of the machine,
correct its position by adjusting the mobile part of the hinges
(fig. 9).
Positioning the
washing machine in the
cabinet
Position the washing machine in the cabinet and, if necessary,
adjust the feet to level it and lock them with the relative locknut.
On appliances with adjustable rear feet, refer to the operator’s
manual.
To prevent the vibrations generated by the washing machine
from being transmitted to the cabinet, make sure the sides and
top do not touch the cabinet. There must be a gap of at least
2 mm. The back of the machine must also remain detached
from the rear panel.
If the cabinet is 870 mm high, the washing machine heightening kit on sale from the Spare Parts Service, must be
used.
To comply with safety legislation, any gaps between the floor
and the bottom of the baseplate and between the floor and the
sides of the machine when it is positioned at the end of a line of
furniture must be completely closed.
The cover must be installed in such a way as to make it
5
impossible to touch live components and a tool must be
required to remove it.
Our company declines all liability for failure to observe the
above safety requirement.
Applying the
baseboard
It must be possible to remove the continuous kitchen baseboard
to allow the drain pump to be cleaned if necessary.
In some cases, the baseboard is not continuous but limited to
the width of the washing machine. In this case, the kitchen
baseboard can be fixed to the washing machine baseboard with
4 screws, respecting the 4 reference marks (see fig. 9-10-11).
When applying the kitchen baseboard, the washing machine baseboard may not be removed or adapted as, for
reasons of safety, it must remain as it is, in one piece and
fixed to the washing machine.
