Helpful hints and tips
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.
Temperatures
95° or 90°
for normally soiled white cottons and linen (e.g. tea cloths,
towels, tablecloths, sheets...)
60°/50°
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, nonshrink»
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.
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.

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.
12 electrolux
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.
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:
1) do not use acetone on artificial silk
• 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).

Care and cleaning
Warning! 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.
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 seal.
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.
Important! Do not use methylated spirits,
solvents or similar products to clean the
cabinet.
Cleaning the dispenser drawer
The detergent dispenser drawer should be
cleaned regularly.
1. Remove the detergent dispenser drawer
by pulling it firmly. Remove any traces of
accumulated powder. To aid cleaning,
16 electrolux
the top part of the additive compartment
should be removed.
6. Insert the detergent dispenser drawer in
the guide rails and push it in.
2. Remove the conditioner insert from the
appropriate compartment.
Washing drum
Rust deposits in the drum may occur due to
rusting foreign bodies in the washing or tap
water containing iron.
Important! Do not clean the drum with
acidic descaling agents, scouring agents
containing chlorine or iron or steel wool.
1. Remove any rust deposits on the drum
with a cleaning agent for stainless steel.
2. Run a washing cycle without any washing
to clean off any cleaning agent residues.
Programme: Short Cotton Programme at
maximum temperature and add approx.
1/4 measuring cup of detergent.
3. Clean all parts with water.
4. Put the conditioner insert in as far as it will
go, so that it is firmly in place
5. Clean all parts of the machine, especially
the nozzles in the top of the washing-in
chamber, with a brush.
Door seal
Check from time to time the door seal and
eliminate eventual possible objects that
could be trapped in the fold.
electrolux 17
Drain pump
The pump should be inspected regularly and
particularly 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:
1. Disconnect the appliance.
2. If necessary wait until the water has
cooled down.
3. Open the pump door.
keep a rag nearby to dry up spillage of
water when removing the pump.
7. Remove any objects from the pump impeller by rotating it.
8. Refit the cap on the emergency emptying hose and place the latter back in its
seat.
9. Screw the pump fully in.
10. Close the pump door.
4. Place a container close to the pump to
collect any spillage.
5. Release the emergency emptying hose,
place it in the container and remove its
cap cover.
Warning!
6. When no more water comes out, unscrew the pump and remove it. Always
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 you notice that the machine is taking longer
to fill, check that the filter in the water inlet
hose is not blocked.
1. Turn off the water tap.
2. Unscrew the hose from the tap.
3. Clean the filter in the hose with a stiff
brush.
4. Screw the hose back onto the tap.
Emergency emptying out
If the water is not discharged, proceed as
follows to empty out the machine:
1. pull out the plug from the power socket;
2. close the water tap;
3. if necessary, wait until the water has
cooled down;
4. open the pump door;
5. place a bowl on the floor and place the
end of the emergency emptying hose into
the bowl. Remove its cap. The water
should drain by gravity into the bowl.
When the bowl is full, put the cap back
on the hose. Empty the bowl. Repeat the
procedure until water stops flowing out;
6. clean the pump if necessary as previously
described;
7. replace the emergency emptying hose in
its seat after having plugged it;
8. screw the pump again and close the
door.
Frost precautions
If the machine is installed in a place where the
temperature could drop below 0°C, proceed
as follows:
1. close the water tap and unscrew the water inlet hose from the tap;
2. place the end of the emergency emptying
hose and that of the inlet hose in a bowl
placed on the floor and let water drain
out;
3. screw the water inlet hose back on and
reposition the emergency emptying hose
after having put the cap on again.
By doing this, any water remaining in the machine is removed, avoiding ice forming and
consequently damage to the appliance.
When you use the machine again, make sure
that the ambient 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.
What to do if...
Certain problems are due to lack of simple
maintenance or oversights, which can be
solved easily without calling out an engineer.
Before contacting your local Service Centre,
please carry out the checks listed below.
During machine operation it is possible that
the red pilot light of button 8 blinks, one of
the following alarm codes appears on the
display and some acoustic signals sound every 20 seconds to indicate that the machine
is not working:
•

Problem
Possible cause/Solution
The door will not open:
The programme is still running.
• Wait the end of washing cycle.
The door lock has not been released.
• Wait until the pilot light 9 goes off.
There is water in the drum.
• Select drain or spin programme to empty out the water.
The machine vibrates is
noisy:
The transit bolts and packing have not been removed.
• Check the correct installation of the appliance.
The support feet have not been adjusted
• Check the correct levelling of the appliance.
The laundry is not evenly distributed in the drum.
• Redistribute the laundry.
Maybe there is very little laundry in the drum.
• Load more laundry.
Spinning starts late or the
machine does not spin:
The electronic unbalance detection device has cut in because the
laundry is not evenly distributed in the drum. The laundry is redistributed by reverse rotation of the drum. This may happen several
times before the unbalance disappears and normal spinning can resume. If, after 10 minutes, the laundry is still not evenly distributed
in the drum, the machine will not spin. In this case, redistribute the
load manually and select the spin programme.
• Redistribute the laundry.
The load is too small.
• Add more items, redistribute the load manually and then select
the spinning programme.
The machine makes an unusual noise:
The machine is fitted with a type of motor which makes an unusual
noise compared with other traditional motors. This new motor ensures a softer start and more even distribution of the laundry in the
drum when spinning, as well as increased stability of the machine.
No water is visible in the
drum:
Machines based on modern technology operate very economically
using very little water without affecting performance.

Water inlet
Warning! This appliance must be
connected to a cold water supply.
1. Connect the water inlet hose supplied
with the machine to a tap with a 3/4"
thread. Always use the hose supplied
with the appliance.
Positioning
Install the machine on a flat hard floor. Make
sure that air circulation around the machine
is not impeded by carpets, rugs etc. Check
that the machine does not touch the wall or
other kitchen units. Level the washing machine by raising or lowering the feet. The feet
may be tight to adjust as they incorporate a
self locking nut, but the machine MUST be
level and stable. If necessary, check the setting with a spirit level. Any necessary adjustment can be made with a spanner. Accurate
levelling prevents vibration, noise and displacement of the machine during operation.
Caution! Never place cardboard, wood
or similar materials under the machine to
compensate for any unevenness in the
floor.
Important! Do not use the hose from
your previous machine to connect to the
water supply.
2. The other end of the inlet hose which
connects to the machine can be turned
as showed in the picture.
Do not place the inlet hose downwards.
Angle the hose to the left or right depending on the position of your water tap.
3. Set the hose correctly by loosening the
ring nut. After positioning the inlet hose,
be sure to tighten the ring nut again to
prevent leaks.
The inlet hose must not be lengthened. If it is
too short and you do not wish to move the
24 electrolux
tap, you will have to purchase a new, longer
hose specially designed for this type of use.
Important! Before connecting up the
machine to new pipework or to pipework that
has not been used for some time, run off a
reasonable amount of water to flush out any
debris that may have collected in the pipes.
Water drainage
The end of the drain hose can be positioned
in three ways.
• Hooked over the edge of a sink using
the plastic hose guide supplied with the
machine. In this case, make sure the end
cannot come unhooked when the machine is emptying. This could be done by
tying it to the tap with a piece of string or
attaching it to the wall.
• In a sink drain pipe branch. This branch
must be above the trap so that the bend is
at least 60 cm above the ground.
• Directly into a drain pipe at a height of
not less than 60 cm and not more than 90
cm. The end of the drain hose must always
be ventilated, i.e. the inside diameter of the
drain pipe must be larger than the outside
diameter of the drain hose. The drain hose
must not be kinked.
The drain hose may be extended to a maximum of 4 metres. An additional drain hose and
joining piece is available from your local Service Centre.
