For the user
Warnings
Keep this instruction book with the appliance. If the appliance is sold or transferred to another owner, ensure
that the book is supplied with the appliance. The new user can then find out about the operation of the
appliance and the relevant warnings.
These warnings have been provided in the interest of safety.
Please read these notes carefully before installing and using your appliance. Thank you for your attention.
Use
Safeties
• Upon delivery of the appliance, remove the packaging
immediately. Check its general appearance.
Note any comments in writing on the delivery note of
which you keep one copy.
• Lid: your appliance is fitted with a safety device
preventing the lid from being closed when the drum
doors are open. It is then impossible to start.
An electronic safety device prevents the lid from being
opened during the operating cycle. At the end of the
cycle, the lid can be opened immediately: the immediate
opening “DECKEL/COUVERCLE” light is thus extinguished. When the lid is locked and released, an
audible “click/clack” alarm is sounded to warn you of
the start or end of the cycle.
Note: In the event of a power failure, the lid can only
be opened after 2 minutes.
• This appliance is designed to be used by adults.
Ensure children do not touch it and use it as a toy.
• It is dangerous to alter or try to alter the specifications
of this appliance.
• Your appliance is designed for normal domestic usage.
Do not use it for commercial or industrial purposes or
for other uses than the one for which it was designed.
• Always unplug the appliance and turn off the water
after use.
• Washing motor: a thermal safety device protects the
motor against the risk of mechanical overload, excess
voltage or low voltage.
• Only wash items which are designed to be machine
washed. Follow the instructions on the care label in
each garment.
• Heating: the heating system can only operate if the tub
is filled with the amount of water required for washing.
This safety device works essentially when the water is
cut off or if the water inlet tap is closed.
• Do not wash garments containing wire and frayed or
torn articles.
• Anti-foam system: The electronic spin cycle with
intermediate spin after the main wash and the three
rinsing cycles for the whites and coloureds programmes ensures very low water consumption. After the
wash cycle, the spin cycle remains controlled by the
foam detection system. If necessary, the spin cycle is
interrupted until the foam is evacuated.
• Any objects such as coins, safety pins, nails, screws,
etc. should be removed before washing.
They can cause extensive damage if they are left in
the clothing.
• Garments on which stain removers containing petrol,
alcohol, trichloroethylene, etc have been used should
not be machine washed. If such stain removers are
used, allow the product to evaporate before placing the
garments in the drum.
• Balance control system: This safety device ensures
the appliance remains stable during intermediate or
final spins and detects if the load is unevenly distributed
in the drum (small load or tangled washing) which the
balance control system then remedies.
• Wash small items such as socks, laces, etc, in a small
washing bag or pillow. This prevents these items
sliding between the drum and the tub.
• Only use the quantities of fabric softener recommended
by the manufacturer. Indelible marks on the fabric may
result if you overfill with softener.
• Always unplug the appliance before cleaning and repairing it.
25
Disposal
Packaging
Appliance
• All materials marked with the
symbol are recyclable. Dispose of them in a tip designed for this purpose
(contact your local waste disposal office) so that they
can be recovered and recycled.
When disposing of your old appliance, make it unusable
as it may represent a danger: cut the electric cable and
make the door catch unusable.

Environment protection
To save water and energy and therefore to help to protect
the environment, we recommend that you follow these
instructions:
• If possible, load the appliance to full capacity rather
than with partial loads (ensuring that the drum is not
overloaded).
• Use the prewash function only for very dirty laundry.
• Adjust the amount of detergent to the hardness of the
water as well as to the load and soiling of the laundry.

Removing stains
Washing guide
Remove certain stains which may not come out, especially if they are old, by working from the outside of the
stain towards the inside to avoid making rings.
Sorting the laundry into categories:
To obtain the best washing results, we recommend that
you sort your laundry into categories:
- on the one hand, resistant laundry which can withstand
powerful washing and spinning;
- on the other hand, delicate laundry which should be
washed with care.
Grass. Wash carefully, treat with diluted bleach. For
woollen garments, methylated spirits may achieve good
results.
Felt tip pen. Dab with a clean cloth soaked in methylated spirits. Take care not to spread the stain.
For mixed loads or loads consisting of garments made
from fibres of different types, select a programme and
temperature suited to the most delicate fibre.
Rust. Use an anti-rust product, following the manufacturer’s recommendations carefully.
Temperatures
Scorch marks. If the fabric is only slightly scorched and
provided that the colours are fast, soak in water with a
little bleach, otherwise soak the fabric in a solution of 10
parts water to 1 part hydrogen peroxide and leave for 10
- 15 minutes.
High temperature : 90°C
Ideal for cotton, linen and hemp garments such as tea
towels, towels, sheets, pillow cases, etc. The generally
white fibres may be heavily soiled.
Chewing gum. Dilute it with nail varnish remover then
remove it with a clean cloth. Ensure that the fabric can
withstand the nail varnish remover.
Average temperature : 60°C
Tar. Spread a bit of butter onto the stain, leave then
sponge off with turps.
Recommended for whites which are not heavily soiled
and for fast coloureds, for synthetics and mixed cotton.
All these garments contain a care label stating that they
can be washed at a maximum temperature of 60°C.
Lip stick. Place the stained side of the fabric on kitchen
paper then dampen the reverse of the fabric with nail
varnish remover taking care to change the paper underneath the stain frequently. Ensure that the fabric can
withstand the nail varnish remover.
Low temperature : 30-40°C
Ideal for delicate synthetics, silk, acrylic and woollen
garments containing the care label “pure new wool - does
not shrink - ( )". All other woollen garments must in
general be dry cleaned or handwashed.
Paint. Do not allow paint marks to dry. Treat immediately with the solvent specified on the paint tin (water,
turps, white spirit). Wash then rinse.
Washing coloureds
Wax. Scratch off the wax with a blunt blade to remove
as much as possible, then iron it placing a sheet of silk
paper between the iron and the stained fabric.
When washed for the first time, coloureds may loose
their colour which may run onto other garments.
To ensure that the colour does not run, we recommend
that you perform the following simple test:
Check the laundry
Select a non visible
part of the garment
Empty all pockets.
Close zips and poppers.
Remove curtain hooks or place the curtains in a laundry
bag.
Remove loose buttons, pins and clips.
To protect them, place curtains in a pillow case for
example.
Fasten or remove loose buttons.
Then press it between a
white piece of cotton
If the colour does not
run, you can machine
wash it
Dampen with
warm water
If the colour runs
handwash the
garment
35
Maximum laundry loads depending on fabric type
You can find out about how hard the water is in your area
by contacting your local water board or other professional department.
The amount of laundry placed in the drum must not
exceed the maximum capacity of the appliance. This
capacity varies depending on the nature of the fabrics.
Reduce the quantity for heavily soiled laundry or for
sponge type fabrics.
Note : Only use low foaming detergents, specially
designed for use in wahing machines. Use neutral
products for washing wool.
Maximum load
Not all textiles have the same volume and the same
water retention ability.
This is why, the drum should in general be filled:
If you use liquid detergents, place the dosing ball
directly into the drum. If the laundry is then to be dried
in a tumble dryer, remember to remove the dosing ball.
Liquid detergent can also be poured directly into the
dispensing drawer ( ), provided that the appliance is
switched on immediately.
- fully but without excessive pressure for cotton, linen
and mixed fabrics,
- half full for treated cottons and synthetic fabrics,
- approximately a third full for very delicate garments
such as net curtains and woollen items.
Liquid detergents are designed for lower temperatures,
being 30°C and 40°C, whilst a powder detergent should
be used for higher temperatures from 60°C to 90°C.
For a mixed laundry load, fill the drum depending on the
nature of the most delicate fabrics.
The average weights of the most common items are
listed below as a guide:
bath robe .......................................................... 1200 g
hand towel ......................................................... 180 g
large towel ........................................................ 1300 g
single sheet ........................................................ 800 g
pillow case .......................................................... 200 g
night shirt ............................................................ 180 g
man's pyjamas.................................................... 500 g
child's pyjamas ................................................... 200 g
man's shirt .......................................................... 250 g
blouse ................................................................. 150 g
tea towel ............................................................. 100 g
overalls ..................................................... 300 à 600 g
Detergent
Choosing the detergent
Detergent manufacturers state on the label the maximum amount of detergent to be used depending on the
laundry load.
Due to the “Direct Spray” washing system which
reduces water and detergent consumption, only use
two thirds of the amounts recommended by the detergent manufacturers.
Amount :
The amount of detergent to use depends on the amount
of laundry to be washed, water hardness and the degree
of soiling of the laundry.
Use slightly less detergent in soft water areas. For hard
water areas or heavily soiled or stained laundry, use
lightly more detergent.

Maintenance and cleaning
Disconnect the appliance before cleaning.
Refitting :
Reposition the detergent dispenser in the slots until it is
clipped in.
Descaling the appliance
It is not generally necessary to descale the appliance if
the correct amount of detergent is used.
However, if scale builds up, use a specific non corrosive
product specially designed for washing machines available in the shops.
Use the correct amount of descaler and the correct
descaling frequency specified on the packaging.
After each wash cycle
Drain filter
We recommend that the lid and drum are left open after
use to air the drum and prevent mould and stagnant
smells forming.
Regularly clean the filter located at the bottom of the
appliance (filter light "Flusensieb/Filtre" illuminates when
this filter is blocked). If you frequently wash laundry
which sheds fluff, clean the filter after each wash. Lower
the drain hose over a large bowl placed on the floor to
drain any water remaining in the machine then:
to drain the residual water:
a. Open the door, with a screwdriver for example :
External cleaning
Clean the exterior cabinet of the appliance with warm
water and mild detergent. Rinse and dry thoroughly.
Important: never use alcohol, solvents or similar products.
Detergent dispenser
Removal :
Press the clips located on either side of the dispensing
drawer and pull it upwards.
b. Place a shallow straight edged bowl underneath.
To finish draining, turn the drain filter plug so that it is
vertical and can release the residual water.
You can then clean it with running water and a brush or
cloth.
to clean the filter:
Check that the siphons located at the rear of the
dispensing drawer are not blocked.
a. Turn the filter in an anti-clockwise direction and
remove.
b. Clean it thoroughly under running water.
c. Replace the filter and screw it in a clockwise
direction.
Aftre cleaning the filter, you are required to closed the
door. In fact, for reasons of safety, the door must be
closed when the appliance is working.

Installation
Removing the transit bolts
Parts used to protect the internal components of
the appliance during transport must be removed
before the appliance is used for the first time.
B
These parts and their mountings must be kept for
future transport.
1. Remove the packaging from the appliance. Tilt the
appliance towards the rear, rotate it through a quarter
of a turn on one of the rear corners to remove the
transport pallet.
This comes away naturally from the appliance.
5. Ensure that you have removed all these parts from
the appliance and keep them for future transportation
(e.g. when moving house).
2. Open the lid of the appliance and remove the wedge
which is blocking the drum and the plastic
spacer. Close the lid.
6. If you want to align your appliance with neighbouring
furniture, you can cut the pipe bracket located on the
rear of the appliance. This will gain an extra 2 - 3 cm
in depth. Leave the two side blanks in place.
3. On the rear part and using a 10 mm spanner, unscrew
and remove the spacers (A).
Location
Place the appliance on a flat and solid floor.
Ensure that the appliance is not touching the wall or other
cabinets in the kitchen.
The tap, the drain pipe and the power socket must be
located near to the machine’s pipes and the power lead.

4. The holes which are now visible should be blanked
with the plugs (B) which are located in the bag
attached to the appliance, remembering to insert the
central capsule.
45
Draining
To install your appliance, you need:
a power supply (see electrical connection),
a water inlet with a 20 x 27 mm connection,
a drain with a minimum height of 70 cm,
a ventilated room.
The end of the drain hose can be placed in two different
ways:
In a drain pipe (or branch of the sink drain pipe),
of which the distance from the floor must be between
70 and 100 cm.
Levelling
It is essential to have an air gap at the end of the drain
hose to prevent any siphoning.
In addition, the drain hose should not be bent. It
should be placed on floor level with the end being
located at the height specified above.
Level the appliance by raising or lowering the feet.
Precise levelling prevents vibrations, noise and the
machine moving whilst operating. After levelling, lock
the feet by tightening the rings by hand or with a
screwdriver.
Moving the appliance
Over the edge of a sink using the plastic section
supplied with the appliance :
To move the appliance, simply place it on its rollers by
pulling the lever located at the bottom of the appliance
from right to left. Once the machine is in the desired
position, return the lever to its initial position.
In this case, ensure that the end cannot fall out onto
the floor when the machine is draining. For example,
you can secure it with a piece of string to the tap or
secure it to the wall.
Water inlet
Important:
Under no circumstances must the drain hose be
extended.
Failure to comply with these rules may lead to your
appliance not functioning correctly.
A
Screw the supply hose connector onto the threaded end
of the water inlet tap (20x27 mm), taking care to correctly
position the seal A, located in the bag supplied with the
appliance.
The water inlet pipe must not be extended. If the pipe is
too short, purchase a longer high pressure hose.
To other end of the water inlet hose, on the appliance
side, can be orientated in any direction. Undo the
tightening ring slightly, rotate the end of the pipe and then
do up the ring securely.
46
