the end cannot come
unhooked when the
machine is emptying.
This could be done by
P0022
tying it to the tap with a
piece of string or attaching it to the wall.
Electrical connection
This machine is designed to operate on a 220-230 V,
single-phase, 50 Hz supply.
Check that your domestic electrical installation can
take the maximum load required (2.2 kW), also taking
into account any other appliances in 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.
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.

Washing and drying hints
Removing stains
Sorting the laundry
Stubborn stains may not be removed by just water
and detergent. It is therefore advisable to treat them
prior to washing.
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.
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.
Temperature
Oil based paint: moisten with benzine stain remover,
lay the garment on a soft cloth and dab the stain; treat
several times.
90°
60°
(cold)
30°-40°
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).
for delicate items (e.g. net curtains),
mixed laundry including synthetic fibres
and woollens bearing the label «pure
new wool, machine washable, nonshrink»
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).
Before loading the laundry
Ball point pen and glue: moisten with acetone (*),
lay the garment on a soft cloth and dab the stain.
Never wash whites and coloureds together. Whites
may lose their “whiteness” in the wash.
Lipstick: moisten with acetone as above, then treat
stains with methylated spirits. Remove any residual
marks from white fabrics with bleach.
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.
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
Maximum loads
Laundry weights
Recommended loads are indicated in the programme
charts.
The following weights are indicative:
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.

Degrees of water hardness
Degrees
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,
– multi-part detergents for separate dispensing of
detergent, water softener and bleach.
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.
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.

Hints on how to save energy and protect
the environment
By following these hints, you will obtain economical
washing without damaging the environment:
– whenever possible, wash the maximum load for
the selected programme,
– measure out detergent according to the water
hardness, degree of soiling and quantity of laundry
being washed,
– use the prewash only for very heavily soiled laundry.
Drying
n
All laundry to be dried must be thoroughly spun.
The higher the spin speed, the lower the power
consumption and the shorter the drying time.
n
Scrupulously follow the instructions on each garment label, making sure that it is suitable for tumble-drying.
n
Do not tumble dry the following:
– wool, silk, synthetic curtains;
– articles with a plasticised finish, nylon tights or
stockings, sleeping bags, quilts, articles made of
foam rubber or containing materials similar to
foam rubber, fabrics with metal inserts;
– fabrics which tend to fray.
Important: during the drying cycle, the water tap must
be left open and the drain hose must be correctly
positioned.
Use less detergent if:
– you are washing a small load
– the laundry is lightly soiled
– large amounts of foam form during washing.

MAINTENANCE
Bodywork
Drain filter
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.
The drain filter collects threads and small objects
inadvertently left in the laundry. Check regularly that
the filter is clean, especially after running drying programmes.
Open the filter door.
Important: do not use methylated spirits, solvents or
similar products to clean the bodywork.
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. To remove the drawer from the
machine, press the button in the rear left-hand corner.
To facilitate cleaning, the top part of the additive compartments can be removed.
