This drawback increases with technical fabrics.
To prevent the lint in your clothes, it is recommended:
• To do not wash dark fabrics after you washed and dried light colored fabrics (new
sponge, wool, sweatshirt especially) and vice versa.
• To air-dry this type of fabrics when they are washed the first time.
• To clean the filter.
• Perform one or more rinse cycles to wash the drum between the washing and drying of
fabrics with different colors.
• After the drying phase, thoroughly clean the empty drum, the gasket and the door with a
wet rag.

Sorting out the laundry
Follow the wash code symbols on each garment label and the manufacturer’s washing instructions. Sort the laundry as follows: whites, coloureds, synthetics, delicates, woollens.
95° or 90°
for normally soiled white cottons and linen (e.g. tea cloths, towels,
tablecloths, sheets...)
for normally soiled, colour fast garments (e.g. shirts, night dresses,
pyjamas....) in linen, cotton or synthetic fibres and for lightly soiled
white cotton (e.g. underwear)
40°-30°- Cold
for delicate items (e.g. net curtains), mixed laundry including synthetic fibres and woollens bearing the label «pure new wool, machine washable, non-shrink»
Before loading the laundry
Never wash whites and coloureds together. Whites may lose their «whiteness» in the wash.
New coloured items may run in the first wash; they should therefore be washed separately
the first time.
Make sure that no metal objects are left in the laundry (e.g. hair clips, safety pins, pins).
Button up pillowcases, close zip fasteners, hooks and poppers. Tie any belts or long tapes.
Remove persistent stains before washing.
Rub particularly soiled areas with a special detergent or detergent paste.
Treat curtains with special care. Remove hooks or tie them up in a bag or net.
Helpful hints and tips
Maximum loads
Recommended loads are indicated in the washing programme charts.
General rules:
• Cotton, linen: drum full but not too tightly packed;
• Synthetics: drum no more than half full;
• Delicate fabrics and woollens: drum no more than one third full.
Washing a maximum load makes the most efficient use of water and energy.
For heavily soiled laundry, reduce the load size.

to treat them prior to washing.
Blood: treat fresh stains with cold water. For dried stains, soak overnight in water with a
special detergent then rub in the soap and water.
Oil based paint: moisten with benzine stain remover, lay the garment on a soft cloth and
dab the stain; treat several times.
Dried grease stains: moisten with turpentine, lay the garment on a soft surface and dab
the stain with the fingertips and a cotton cloth.
Rust: oxalic acid dissolved in hot water or a rust removing product used cold. Be careful
with rust stains which are not recent since the cellulose structure will already have been
damaged and the fabric tends to hole.
Mould stains: treat with bleach, rinse well (whites and fast coloureds only).
Grass: soap lightly and treat with bleach (whites and fast coloureds only).
Ball point pen and glue: moisten with acetone1), lay the garment on a soft cloth and dab
the stain.
Lipstick: moisten with acetone as above, then treat stains with methylated spirits. Treat any
residual marks with bleach.
Red wine: soak in water and detergent, rinse and treat with acetic or citric acid, then rinse.
Treat any residual marks with bleach.
Ink: depending on the type of ink, moisten the fabric first with acetone1), then with acetic
acid; treat any residual marks on white fabrics with bleach and then rinse thoroughly.
1) do not use acetone on artificial silk
Drying Hints
Tar stains: first treat with stain remover, methylated spirits or benzine, then rub with detergent paste.
Detergents and additives
Good washing results also depend on the choice of detergent and use of the correct quantities to avoid waste and protect the environment.
Although biodegradable, detergents contain substances which, in large quantities, can upset the delicate balance of nature.
The choice of detergent will depend on the type of fabric (delicates, woollens, cottons, etc.),
the colour, washing temperature and degree of soiling.
All commonly available washing machine detergents may be used in this appliance:
• powder detergents for all types of fabric
• powder detergents for delicate fabrics (60°C max) and woollens
• liquid detergents, preferably for low temperature wash programmes (60°C max) for all
types of fabric, or special for woollens only.
The detergent and any additives must be placed in the appropriate compartments of the
dispenser drawer before starting the wash programme.
If using liquid detergents, a programme without prewash must be selected.
Your appliance incorporates a recirculation system which allows an optimal use of the concentrated detergent.
Follow the product manufacturer’s recommendations on quantities to use and do not exceed the «MAX» mark in the detergent dispenser drawer.
Degrees of water hardness
Water hardness is classified in so-called “degrees” of hardness. Information on hardness of
the water in your area can be obtained from the relevant water supply company, or from
your local authority.
A water softener must be added when water has a medium-high degree of hardness (from
degree of hardness II). Follow the manufacturer’s instructions. The quantity of detergent
can then always be adjusted to degree of hardness I (= soft).
Degrees of water hardness

Preparing the drying cycle
As a dryer, the appliance works on the condensation principle.
Drying Hints
Therefore, the water tap must be open and the drain hose must drain water into a sink
or into the drain pipe, even during the drying cycle.
Before starting the drying programme, reduce the loads of washed laundry, in order to obtain good performances.
Laundry not suitable for drying
• Particularly delicate items such as synthetic curtains, woollen and silk, garments with
metal inserts, nylon stockings, bulky garments such as anoraks, bed covers, quilts, sleeping bags and duvets must not be machine dried.
• Avoid drying dark clothes with light coloured fluffy items such as towels as these can
attract the fluff.
• Remove the laundry when the appliance has finished drying.
• To avoid a static charge when drying is completed, use either a fabric softener when you
are washing the laundry or a fabric conditioner specifically for tumble dryers.
• Garments padded with foam-rubber or materials similar to foam-rubber must not be
machine dried; they represent a fire hazard.
• Also, fabrics containing residue of setting lotions or hair sprays, nail solvents or similar
solutions must not be machine dried in order to avoid the formation of harmful vapours.
The detergent and any additives must be placed in the appropriate compartments of the
dispenser drawer before starting the wash programme.
If using liquid detergents, a programme without prewash must be selected.
Your appliance incorporates a re-circulation system which allows an optimal use of the
concentrated detergent.
Follow the product manufacturer’s recommendations on quantities to use and do not exceed the «MAX» mark in the detergent dispenser drawer.
Garment labels
For drying, follow the indications given on the manufacturer’s labels:
= May be tumble dried
= Drying at high temperature
= Drying at reduced temperature
= Do not tumble dry.
Drying cycle duration
The drying time may vary depending on:
• speed of the final spin
• dryness degree required (iron dry, store dry)
• type of laundry
• weight of the load size .
The average drying time for a timed drying are indicated in the «Drying programmes» chapter. The experience will help you to dry your laundry in a more suitable way, according to
the different fabrics. Take note of the duration drying time of the already performed cycles.
Care and cleaning
Additional drying
If the laundry is still damp at the end of the drying programme, select a short drying cycle
Do not over dry the laundry in order to avoid creasing of fabrics or garment’s shrinking.
You must DISCONNECT the appliance from the electricity supply, before you can carry out
any cleaning or maintenance work.
The water we use normally contains lime. It is a good idea to periodically use a water softening powder in the machine. Do this separately from any laundry washing, and according
to the softening powder manufacturer's instructions. This will help to prevent the formation of lime deposits.
After each wash
Leave the door open for a while. This helps to prevent mould and stagnant smells forming
inside the appliance. Keeping the door open after a wash will also help to preserve the door
Maintenance wash
With the use of low temperature washes it is possible to get a build up of residues inside
the drum.
We recommend that a maintenance wash be performed on a regular basis.
To run a maintenance wash:
• The drum should be empty of laundry.
• Select the hottest cotton wash programme.
• Use a normal measure of detergent, must be a powder with biological properties.
External cleaning
Clean the exterior cabinet of the appliance with soap and water only, and then dry thoroughly.
Do not use methylated spirits, solvents or similar products to clean the cabinet.
