HELPFUL HINTS AND TIPS
THE LAUNDRY LOAD
DETERGENTS AND ADDITIVES
• Divide the laundry in: white, coloured,
synthetics, delicates and wool.
• Obey the washing instructions that are
on the laundry care labels.
• Do not wash together white and coloured items.
• Some coloured items can discolour with
the first wash. We recommend that you
wash them separately for the first times.
• Button up pillowcases, close zippers,
hooks and poppers. Tie up belts.
• Empty the pockets and unfold the
items.
• Turn inside out multilayered fabrics,
wool and items with painted illustrations.
• Remove hard stains.
• Wash with a special detergent heavy
soil stains.
• Be careful with the curtains. Remove
the hooks or put the curtains in a washing bag or pillowcase.
• Do not wash in the appliance :
– Laundry without hems or with cuts
– Underwired bras.
– Use a washing bag to wash small
items.
• A very small load can cause balance
problems with the spin phase. If this occurs, adjust manually the items in the
tub and start the spin phase again.
• Only use detergents and additives specially made for washing machines.
• Do not mix different types of detergents.
• To help the environment, do not use
more than the correct quantity of detergent.
• Obey the instructions that you find on
the on packaging of these products.
• Use the correct products for the type
and colour of the fabric, the programme temperature and the level of
soil.
• If you use liquid detergents, do not set
the prewash phase.
• If your appliance has not the detergent
dispenser with the flap device, add the
liquid detergents with a dosing ball.
STUBBORN STAINS
For some stains, water and detergent is
not sufficient.
We recommend that you remove these
stains before you put the items in the appliance.
Special stain removers are available. Use
the special stain remover that is applicable to the type of stain and fabric.
WATER HARDNESS
If the water hardness in your area is high
or moderate, we recommend that you use
a water softener for washing machines. In
areas where the water hardness is soft it is
not necessary to use a water softener.
To know the water hardness in your area,
contact your local water authority.
Obey the instructions that you find on the
packaging of the products.
Equivalent scales measure the water hardness:
• German degrees (°dH).
• French degrees (°TH).
• mmol/l (millimol for each litre - international unit for the hardness of water).
• Clarke degrees.

POSITIONING AND LEVELLING
• Install the appliance on a flat hard floor.
• Make sure that carpets do not stop the
air circulation below the appliance.
• Make sure that the appliance does not
touch the wall or other units
• 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.
x4
• The appliance must be level and stable.
CAUTION!
Do not put cardboard, wood or
equivalent materials below the
appliance feet to adjust the level.
38
THE INLET HOSE
• Connect the hose to the appliance.
Turn the inlet hose only left or right.
Loose the ring nut to set it in the correct position.
20
O

O
• Connect the water inlet hose to the
cold water tap with 3/4 thread.
CAUTION!
Make sure that there are no leaks
from the couplings.
Do not use an extension hose if
the inlet hose is too short. Contact
the service centre for the replacement of the inlet hose.
Water-stop device
The inlet hose has a water stop device.
This device prevents water leaks in the
hose because of its natural ageing. The
red sector in the window «A» shows this
fault .
If this occur, close the water tap and contact the service centre to replace the
hose.
A
WATER DRAINAGE
There are different procedures to connect
the drain hose:
ENGLISH
39
With the plastic hose guide.
• On the edge of a sink.
• Make sure that the plastic guide cannot
move when the appliance drains. Attach the guide to the water tap or the
wall.
• To a stand pipe with vent-hole.
Refer to the illustration. Directly into a
drain pipe at a height of not less than
60 cm and not more than 100 cm. The
end of the drain hose must always be
ventilated , i.e. the inner diameter of
the drainpipe must be larger than the
external diameter of the drain hose.
Without the plastic hose guide.
• To a sink spigot.
Refer to the illustration. Put the drain
hose in the spigot and tighten it with a
clip. Make sure that the drain hose
makes a loop to prevent that remaining
particles go in the appliance from the
sink.
• Directly to a built-in drain pipe in the
room wall and tighten it with a clip.
40
You can extend the drain hose to
maximum 400 cm. Contact the
service centre for the other drain
hose and the extension.
