i Washing Hints
Sorting the laundry
Laundry weights
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.
The following weights are indicative:
Bathrobe
Temperatures
95°
60°
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).
(cold) for delicate items (e.g. net curtains), mixed
30°-40° 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.

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.
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.
Maximum loads
Recommended loads are indicated in the 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.
10
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.
Follow the product manufacturers’ instructions on
quantities to use.
Use less detergent if:
– you are washing a small load
– the laundry is lightly soiled
– large amounts of foam form during washing.
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 concentrated powder or liquid detergents, a
programme without prewash must be selected.
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.

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.

Maintenance
Before any maintenance or cleaning is carried
out you must DISCONNECT the appliance
from the electricity supply.
1. Bodywork
Clean the outside of the machine with warm water and a
neutral, non-abrasive household detergent. Rinse with
clean water and dry with a soft cloth.
Important: do not use methylated spirits, solvents or
similar products to clean the bodywork.
2. Detergent dispenser drawer
After a while, detergents and fabric softeners leave
deposits in the drawer.
Clean the drawer from time to time by rinsing it under a
running tap. Remove the drawer by pressing the catch
downwards and by pulling it out.
To facilitate cleaning, the top part of the additive
compartments can be removed.
AL021
AL033
Detergent can also eventually accumulate inside the
drawer recess: clean it with an old toothbrush. Refit the
drawer after cleaning.
P0185
3. 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.
Turn off the water tap.
Unscrew the water inlet hose at the rear of the
appliance.
Clean it with a stiff brush.
Refit the filter and screw the hose at the rear of the
appliance.
P0090
13
P0021
4. Drain filter
The drain filter collects threads and small objects
inadvertently left in the laundry. Check regularly that the
filter is clean.
Open the filter door.
Place a container under the filter and unscrew it.
AL012
AL015
Pull out the filter.
Clean the filter under a running tap, then refit it,
screwing it fully in.
AL017
5. Emergency emptying out
If the water is not discharged (drain 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 drain
hose because, for example, the appliance is built in the
kitchen furniture, slightly loosen the drain filter after
placing a bowl on the floor, to let the water come out
slowly.
At the end screw the filter again.
6. The dangers of freezing
If the machine is exposed to temperatures below 0°C,
certain precautions should be taken.
■ Turn off the water tap.
■ Unscrew the inlet hose.
■ Unhook the drain hose from the rear support and
position the end of this hose and that of the inlet
hose in a bowl. Run the draining programme until
the selector dial is in the “Stop” position.
■ Switch the machine off.
■ Screw the inlet hose and reposition the drain hose.
■ When you intend to start the machine up again,
make sure that the room temperature is above 0°C.

■ it is not a hot water tap
■ the running water is clean. If not, run off a reasonable
amount of water to flush out any debris that may have
collected in the pipes.
Have the permanent drainage system in the wall
checked by a plumber.
Place the enclosed rubber joint, delivered in a plastic
bag together with the appliance (A), at the very end of
the inlet hose and carefully screw the pipe to the tap
taking care not to damage the screwdrive and fix the nut
well on to the end in order to avoid leaking.

If necessary turn the hose adequately by unscrewing the
nut at the rear of the appliance.
Now tighten the nut anew to avoid leaks. (Open the tap
and assure that it does not leak and close it again.)

Water drainage
If you intend the drain hose from the machine to empty
into a sink, make sure that the sink is empty and that the
plug hole is not blocked.
Place the drain hose in the sink with the aid of the bent
piece delivered separately.
The bent piece has to be entered into the tube´s mouth
in order to assure the support.. Aforesaid piece allows
the hose to be fixed to the wall by means of an opening
on the upper part and that way the hose does not move
and its falling is avoided
If the machine is permanently plumbed in, hook the end
of the hose into a standpipe installed for the purpose.
The standpipe must have an internal diameter of at least
40 mm in order that there is an air gap between the
drain hose and the standpipe. Make sure, that it is
designed in such a way, that the end of the drain hose
cannot be covered with water.

P1039
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.
Levelling
Level the washing machine by loosening or tightening
the feet. Once in the right position fix the feet by
pushing the nuts against the base of the case
Accurate levelling prevents vibration, noise and
displacement of the machine during operation. After
levelling the machine, secure the feet by tightening the
ring nuts with the aid of a screwdriver.
Some vibration is inevitable, especially if mounted on a
wooden floor.
Sprung wooden floors are particularly susceptible to
vibration. For advice, consult a builder. If possible,
always place the machine on a solid floor.
P0254
Special conditions
If the floor is carpeted with a deep-pile carpet or
covered with crumbly or soft material, insert a rigid
support base under the feet to prevent noise, vibration or
displacement. The base should protrude a few
centimetres beyond the edges of the machine.
Warning
The machine should NOT be placed on deep pile
carpeting.
Note
Please ensure that when the appliance is installed it is
easily accessible for the engineer in the event of a
breakdown.

Min.60 cm.
(23.6")
Max. 90 cm.(35.4")
Whether discharging into a sink or a standpipe check that
the end of the drain hose is neither too high nor too low.
The top of the curve in the hose’s end should be no more
than 90 cm, and no less than 60 cm above floor level.
Should a prolongation of the drain hose be unavoidable
this must never surpass 1.5 m and must be of the same
diameter as the original hose
Electrical connections
The applicable rules for electrical security
require an adequate earthing. The plug of the
appliance is provided with such a device.
Make sure your socket outlet is provided with an
adequate earthing too.
The manufacturer declines any liability in case of
accidents or incidents should these safety measures
not be observed.
Before plugging the appliance make sure that:
■ The mains of your installation is the same as on the
rating plate of your appliance (the plate is sticked to
the rear of the appliance).
■ The meter, the fuses, the wiring and the socket outlet
can support the max. power absorbed stated on the
rating plate.
■ The socket base and the plug must fit in adequately
without any reducing interposition, multiple outlets
or adapters. If necessary replace the socket outlet by
an adequate one.
■ Should the plug need to be replaced for any reason,
you must connect the green and yellow (earth) wire
to the terminal in the plug which is marked with the
letter «E» or the earth symbol
or coloured green
and yellow.
Permanent connection
In the case of permanent connection it is necessary that
you install a double pole switch between the appliance
and the electricity supply (mains), with a minimum gap
of 3 mm between the switch contacts and of a type
suitable for the required load in compliance with the
current electrical regulations.
The switch must not break the yellow and green earth
cable at any point.
