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.
• 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.
• When small loads are washed, use only half to two
thirds of the recommended amount of detergent.

Water inlet
Connect the water inlet hose to a tap with a 3/4"
thread after having inserted the small filter “A”
supplied with the machine.
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.
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.
A
P0003
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.
P0022
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.
P0023
The drain hose must not be kinked. Run it along the
floor; only the part near the drainage point must be
raised.
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, in
accordance with current wiring regulations.
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.

ENGLISH
Your new washing machine
Your new washing machine, fitted with the Direct Spray System, meets all modern requirements for
effective treatment of laundry with low water, energy and detergent consumption.
Even small loads are washed “economically” because the amount of water used is regulated
automatically according to the load and type of fabric.
• The temperature selector dial allows you to
choose the most suitable temperature for your
laundry.
• The special wool programme with its new
delicate wash system treats your woolens with
extreme care.
• Automatic cooling of the wash water to 60°C
before draining, with the 95°C programme. This
reduces thermal shock to fabrics, helping to
prevent creasing.
• The anti-unbalance device ensures that the
washing machine remains stable when spinning.

Washing hints
Sorting 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.
• 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.
60°-95°
for normally soiled white cottons and
linen (e.g. tea cloths, towels,
tablecloths, sheets...)
Oil based paint: moisten with benzine stain
remover, lay the garment on a soft cloth and dab the
stain; treat several times.
60°
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).
Dried grease stains: moisten with turpentine, lay
the garment on a soft surface and dab the stain with
the fingertips and a cotton cloth.
(cold)
30°-40°
for delicate items (e.g. net curtains),
mixed laundry including synthetic
fibres, no-fast coloured items and
woollens bearing the label «pure new
wool, machine washable, non-shrink».
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).
Maximum loads
Grass: soap lightly and treat with bleach (whites and
fast coloureds only).
Recommended loads are indicated in the
programme charts.
Ball point pen and glue: moisten with acetone (*),
lay the garment on a soft cloth and dab the stain.
General rules:
Lipstick: moisten with acetone as above, then treat
stains with methylated spirits. Remove any residual
marks from white fabrics with bleach.
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.
12
Red wine: soak in water and detergent, rinse and
treat with acetic or citric acid, then rinse. Treat any
residual marks with bleach.
Tar stains: first treat with stain remover, methylated
spirits or benzine, then rub with detergent paste.
(*) do not use acetone on artificial silk.
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.
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.
Degrees of water hardness
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.
ENGLISH
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.

4. 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 hose from the tap and remove the filter.
Clean it with a stiff brush.
Refit the filter and screw the hose back onto the tap.
5. Emergency emptying out
If the water is not discharged (outlet pump is blocked,
filter or outlet 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 outlet 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.
6. Frost precautions
If the machine is installed in a place where the
temperature could drop below 0°C, proceed as
follows:
• Close the water tap and unscrew the water inlet
hose from the tap.
• Place the end of the outlet hose and that of the inlet
hose in a bowl placed on the floor.
• Select the draining programme N and run it until the
machine stops.
• Switch the machine off.
• Remove the plug from the socket.
• Screw the water inlet hose back on and put the
outlet 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.
When you use the machine again, make sure that the
ambient temperature is above 0°C.

Something not working?
Problems which you can resolve yourself.
Problem
• The machine does not start
up:
Possible cause
• Check that the door is firmly closed.
• Check that the machine is plugged in and that there
is power at the socket.
• Check that the main fuse has not blown.
• Check that the programme selector dial is
positioned correctly.
• Check that the ON/OFF button has been depressed.
• The machine does not fill:
• Check that the water tap is open.
• Check that water is coming out of the tap.
• Check that the inlet hose is not squashed or
kinked.
• Check that the filter in the inlet hose is not blocked.
• Check that the door is closed.
• The machine fills then
empties immediately:
• The machine does not empty
and/or does not spin:
• The end of the drain hose is too low. Refer to
relevant paragraph in “water drainage” section.
• Check that the drain hose is not squashed or kinked.
• A programme with the “Anticrease”
been selected .
option has
• Ckeck that the drain filter is clean.
• There is water on the floor:
• Too much detergent or unsuitable detergent
(creates too much foam) has been used.
• Check whether there are any leaks from one of the
inlet hose fittings. It is not always easy to see this
as the water runs down the hose; check to see if it
is damp.
• Check that the drain hose is not damaged.
• The machine vibrates or is
noisy:
• Check that all the transit bolts and packing have
been removed.
• Check that the machine is not resting against
anything.
• Check that the support feet are resting firmly on the
ground and that the lock nuts are securely tightened.
• Check that the laundry is evenly distributed in the
drum.
• Maybe there is very little laundry in the drum.

Problem
• The door will not open:
Possible cause
• The programme is still running.
• The door lock has not been released.
The door can be opened when the door locked
light is off.
• There is water in the drum.
• 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 reselect the spin 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.
• Unsatisfactory washing
results:
• Too little detergent or unsuitable detergent has
been used.
• Stubborn stains have not been treated prior to
washing.
• The correct temperature was not selected.
• Excessive laundry load.
• Detergent residue is left after
the wash cycle:
• This is most problaby due to non soluble
components contained in modern detergents. It is
not a sign of inadequate rinsing.
Brush or shake the garments and, if necessary,
wash them again.
• Foam remains after the last
rinse:
• Modern detergents can produce foam even after
rinsing, but this will not affect the quality of the
wash.
If you are unable to identify or solve the problem,
contact our service centre. Before telephoning,
make a note of the model, serial number and
purchase date of your machine: the Service Centre
will require this information.
