HELPFUL HINTS AND TIPS
THE LAUNDRY LOAD
• Divide the laundry in: white, coloured, synthetics, delicates and wool.
• To wash correctly, obey the instructions that are on the laundry care labels.
• Do not wash together white and coloured items.
• Some coloured items can discolour in
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.
• Remove hard stains.
• Wash with a special detergent areas
with heavy soil.
• Be careful with the curtains. Remove
the hooks or put the curtains in a
bag.
• 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.
DETERGENTS AND ADDITIVES
• Only use detergents and additives
specially made for washing machines.
• 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.
ECOLOGICAL HINTS
To help the environment, use less water
and energy, obey these instructions:
• Set a programme without prewash
phase to wash laundry with normal
soil.
• Always wash with the maximum load
of the laundry.
• To set a programme with lower temperature, use a stain remover before
to wash.
• To use the correct quantity of the detergent, check the water hardness of
your domestic system
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
x4
• 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 kitchen
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.
ENGLISH
35
• The appliance must be level and stable.
CAUTION!
Do not put cardboard, wood or
equivalent materials below the
appliance feet to adjust the level.
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.

O
35
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.
36
WATER-STOP DEVICE
A
The inlet hose has a water stop device.
This device prevents damage of 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.
WATER DRAINAGE
There are some procedure to connect
the drain hose:
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.
ENGLISH
37
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.
You can extend the drain hose
to maximum 400 mm. Contact
the service centre for the other
drain hose and the extension.
