Washing and drying hints
Sorting 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.
Temperatures
90° or 95°
for normally soiled white cottons
and linen (e.g. tea cloths, towels,
tablecloths, sheets...)
50°/60°
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).
30°-40°-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.
12
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.
Particularly delicate items such as synthetic
curtains, woollen and silk, garments with metal
inserts, nylon stockings, bulky garments such
as anoraks, bedcovers, quilts, sleeping bags
and duvets must not be machine dried.
Garments padded with foam-rubber or materials similar to foam-rubber must not be machine
dried; they represent a fire hazard.
Also, fabrics containing residues 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.
For drying, follow the indications given on the
manufacturer’s 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
IMPORTANT!
As a dryer, the machine works on the
condensation principle.
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.

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
acetone (*), lay the garment on a soft cloth and
dab the stain.
Lipstick: moisten with acetone as above, then
treat stains with methylated spirits. Remove
any residual marks from white fabrics 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 acetone (*), then with acetic
acid; treat any residual marks on white fabrics
with bleach and then rinse thoroughly.
Tar stains: first treat with stain remover,
methylated spirits or benzine, then rub with
detergent paste.
(*) do not use acetone on artificial silk.
Detergents and additives
Removing stains
Stubborn stains may not be removed by just
water and detergent. It is therefore advisable 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.
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,
13
132966720_GB.qxd
29/05/2009
11.34
Page 14
etc.), the colour, washing temperature and
degree of soiling.
All commonly available washer-dryer
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 concentrated powder or liquid
detergents, a programme without prewash
must be selected.
The washer-dryer incorporates a recirculation
system which allows an optimal use of the
concentrated detergent.
Pour liquid detergent into the dispenser drawer
compartment marked
just before starting
the programme.
Any fabric softener or starching additives must
be poured into the compartment marked
before starting the wash programme.
Follow the product manufacturer’s
recommendations on quantities to use and do
not exceed the «MAX» mark in the
detergent dispenser drawer.
Quantity of detergent to be used
The type and quantity of detergent will depend
on the type of fabric, load size, degree of
soiling and hardness of the water used.
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.
14
Follow the product manufacturers’ instructions
on quantities to use.
Degrees of water hardness

Care and cleaning
IMPORTANT!
You must DISCONNECT the appliance from
the electricity supply, before you can carry out
any cleaning or maintenance work.
Descaling
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.
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.
Cleaning the dispenser drawer
The washing powder and additive dispenser
drawer should be cleaned regularly.
To aid cleaning, the top part of the additive
compartment should be removed.
Remove the drawer by pressing the catch
downwards and by pulling it out. Flush it out
under a tap, to remove any traces of
accumulated powder.
Cleaning the drawer recess
Having removed the
drawer, use a small
brush to clean the
recess, ensuring that
all washing powder
residue is removed
from the upper and
lower
part of the recess.
Replace the drawer and run the rinse
programme without any clothes in the drum.
Cleaning the pump
The pump should be inspected if
• the machine does not empty and/or spin
• the machine makes an unusual noise during
draining due to objects such as safety pins,
coins etc. blocking the pump.
Proceed as follows:
• disconnect the appliance.
• if the appliance is operating, wait, if
necessary, until the water has cooled down.
• open the pump door levering on the groove
with a coin (or with the suitable tool, that you
can find in the bag containing the instruction
booklet depending on the model).
• place a bowl with a small edge close to the
pump to collect any spillage
21
132966720_GB.qxd
29/05/2009
11.34
Page 22
• Close the pump
door.
1
2
• pull out the emergency emptying cap from the
filter cover, using a pliers.
• when no more water comes out, unscrew the
pump cover, using a pliers, and remove the
filter. Always keep a rag nearby to dry up
spillage of water when removing the cover.
2
1
• Remove any objects from the pump impeller
by rotating it.
IMPORTANT!
When the appliance is in use and depending
on the programme selected there can be hot
water in the pump.
Never remove the pump cover during a wash
cycle, always wait until the appliance has
finished the cycle, and is empty. When
replacing the cover, ensure it is securely
retightened so as to stop leaks and young
children being able to remove it.
Cleaning the water inlet filter
If your water is very hard or contains traces of
lime deposit, the water inlet filter may become
clogged.
It is therefore a good idea to clean it from time
to time.
Turn off the water tap.
Unscrew the water
inlet hose. Clean the
filter using a hard
bristle brush. Tighten
up the inlet hose.
• replace the emergency emptying cap into the
filter cover and fix it firmly.
The dangers of freezing
If the machine is exposed to temperatures
below 0°C, certain precautions should be
taken:
• pull out the plug from the power socket;
22
132966720_GB.qxd
29/05/2009
11.34
Page 23
• turn off the water tap.
• unscrew the inlet hose.
• place a bowl with a small edge close to the
pump to collect any spillage from the
emergency emptying hose.
Place the end of the inlet hose in a bowl
placed on the floor and let water drain out.
• screw the water inlet hose back on and
reposition the emergency emptying cap on
again into the filter cover.
• when you intend to start the machine up
again, make sure that the room temperature
is above 0°C.
IMPORTANT!
Every time you drain the water through the
emergency emptying hose you must pour 2
litres of water into the main wash compartment
of the detergent drawer and then run the drain
programme. This will activate the ECO VALVE
device avoiding that part of the detergent
remains unused at next washing.
Emergency emptying out
If the water is not discharged, proceed as
follows to empty out the machine:
• pull out the plug from the power socket;
• close the water tap;
• if necessary, wait until the water has cooled
down;
• open the pump door using the suitable tool;
• place a bowl with a small edge close to the
pump to collect any spillage. Remove the
emergency emptying cap from the filter
cover. The water should drain by gravity into
the bowl. When the bowl is full, put the cap
back on filter cover. Empty the bowl. Repeat
the procedure until water stops flowing out;
• clean the pump if necessary as previously
described;
• replace the filter into the pump and screw it
firmly as previously described;
• replace the emergency emptying cap into the
filter cover and close the pump door.

Ecological hints
To save water, energy and to help protect the
environment, we recommend that you follow
these tips:
● Normally soiled laundry may be washed
without prewashing in order to save
detergent, water and time (the environment
is protected too!).
● The machine works more economically if it is
fully loaded.
● With adequate pre-treatment, stains and
limited soiling can be removed; the laundry
can then be washed at a lower temperature.
● Measure out detergent according to the
water hardness, the degree of soiling and
the quantity of laundry being washed.
