Child safety
• Keep all detergents in a safe place out of children’s
reach.
• Children are often not aware of how dangerous
electrical appliances can be. When the machine is
working, children should be carefully supervised
and not be allowed to play with the appliance.
• Make sure that children or pets do not climb into
the drum.
• When the appliance is to be scrapped, cut off the
electrical supply cable and destroy the plug with
the remaining cable. Disable the door catch in
order to prevent children from becoming trapped
inside while playing.
• The packaging components (e.g. plastic film,
polystyrene) can be dangerous to children - danger
of suffocation! Keep them out of children’s reach.

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

Water inlet
The drain hose must not be kinked. Run it along the
floor; only the part near the drainage point must be
raised.
Connect the water inlet hose supplied with the
machine to a tap with a 3/4" thread. Do not use
already employed hoses.
ENGLISH
The other end of the inlet hose which connects to the
machine can be turned in any direction. Simply
loosen the fitting, rotate the hose and retighten the
fitting, making sure there are no water leaks.
P0023
Electrical connection
P1088
This machine is designed to operate on a 220-230 V,
single-phase, 50 Hz supply.
P0021
Check that your domestic electrical installation can
take the maximum load required (2.2 kW), also
taking into account any other appliances in use.
The inlet hose must not be lengthened. If it is too
short and you do not wish to move the tap, you will
have to purchase a new, longer hose specially
designed for this type of use.
Connect the machine to an earthed socket.
The manufacturer declines any responsibility
for damage or injury through failure to comply
with the above safety precaution.
Should the appliance power supply cable
need to be replaced, this should be carried
out by our Service Centre.
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.
P0022
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.

proportional to the quantity and type of laundry being washed.
• The programme selector dial combines the function of programme and temperature selection, making it
easier to set the programme.
• The programme progress display shows the programme steps selected and the programme phase which
is running.
• The special wool programme with its new delicate wash system treats your woollens with extreme care.
• The balance control device ensures the machine is stable during the spin.

Before loading the laundry
Removing stains
Never wash whites and coloureds together. Whites
may lose their “whiteness” in the wash.
Stubborn stains may not be removed by just water
and detergent. It is therefore advisable to treat them
prior to washing.
New coloured items may run in the first wash; they
should therefore be washed separately the first time.
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.
Make sure that no metal objects are left in the
laundry (e.g. hair clips, safety pins, pins).
Oil based paint: moisten with benzine stain
remover, lay the garment on a soft cloth and dab the
stain; treat several times.
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.
Dried grease stains: moisten with turpentine, lay
the garment on a soft surface and dab the stain with
the fingertips and a cotton cloth.
Treat curtains with special care. Remove hooks or tie
them up in a bag or net.
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.
Maximum loads
Recommended loads are indicated in the
programme charts.
Mould stains: treat with bleach, rinse well (whites
and fast coloureds only).
General rules:
Grass: soap lightly and treat with bleach (whites and
fast coloureds only).
Cotton, linen: drum full but not too tightly packed;
Synthetics: drum no more than half full;
Ball point pen and glue: moisten with acetone (*),
lay the garment on a soft cloth and dab the stain.
Delicate fabrics and woollens: drum no more than
one third full.
Lipstick: moisten with acetone as above, then treat
stains with methylated spirits. Remove any residual
marks from white fabrics with bleach.
Washing a maximum load makes the most efficient
use of water and energy.
For heavily soiled laundry, reduce the load size.
Red wine: soak in water and detergent, rinse and
treat with acetic or citric acid, then rinse. Treat any
residual marks with bleach.

Quantity of detergent to be used
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.
The type and quantity of detergent will depend on
the type of fabric, load size, degree of soiling and
hardness of the water used.
Tar stains: first treat with stain remover, methylated
spirits or benzine, then rub with detergent paste.
(*) do not use acetone on artificial silk.
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.
Detergents and additives
Follow the product manufacturers’ instructions on
quantities to use.
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.
Use less detergent if:
– you are washing a small load,
– the laundry is lightly soiled,
– large amounts of foam form during washing.
The choice of detergent will depend on the type of
fabric (delicates, woollens, cottons, etc.), the colour,
washing temperature and degree of soiling.
Degrees of water hardness
All commonly available washing machine detergents
may be used in this appliance:
Degrees
Level
– powder detergents for all types of fabric,
Characteristic
– 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 washing machine 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.

7. Frost precautions
If you notice that the machine is taking longer to fill,
check that the filter in the water inlet hose is not
blocked.
If the machine is installed in a place where the
temperature could drop below 0°C, proceed as
follows:
Turn off the water tap.
• Close the water tap and unscrew the water inlet
hose from the tap.
Unscrew the hose from the tap.
• Place the end of the drain hose and that of the inlet
hose in a bowl placed on the floor.

• Turn the programme selector dial to X.
• Switch the machine OFF by depressing button
.
• Screw the water inlet hose back on and put the
drain hose back in its place.
By doing this, any water remaining in the machine is
removed, avoiding the formation of ice and,
consequently, breakage of the affected parts.
P1090
When you use the machine again, make sure that
the ambient temperature is above 0°C.
6. Emergency emptying out
If the water is not discharged (outlet pump is
blocked, filter or drain hose are clogged), 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;
• place a bowl on the floor;
• put the drain hose end into the bowl and let the
water come out.
Should it not be possible to have access to the outlet
hose because, for example, the appliance is built in
the kitchen furniture, slightly loosen the outlet filter
after placing a bowl on the floor, to let the water
come out slowly.
At the end screw the filter again.

Problem
Possible cause
• Spinning starts late or the
laundry is not spun enough:
• 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 6 minutes, the
laundry is still not evenly distributed in the drum,
the machine will spin at a lower speed. If at the end
of the programme the laundry is not spun enough,
redistribute the load manually and select the spin
programme.
Water is not
visible in the machine. The machine,
which is the result of modern technology, runs
in a very economical way with low water
consumption. Performance is
nevertheless excellent.
The machine makes an unusual
noise. The machine is fitted with a commutator
motor which improves machine
performance.
