HELPFUL HINTS AND TIPS
THE LAUNDRY LOAD
• 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.
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.
22
DETERGENTS AND ADDITIVES
WATER HARDNESS
• 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.
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.

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.
• The appliance must be level and stable.
CAUTION!
Do not put cardboard, wood or
equivalent materials below the
appliance feet to adjust the level.

• 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
A
WATER DRAINAGE
There are different procedures to connect the drain hose:
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.
ENGLISH
35
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.
