YOUR NEW WASHING MACHINE
This new washing machine meets all requirements for
a modern washing of laundry with reduced
consumption of water, energy and detergent.
■
The temperature selector dial allows you to
choose personally the suitable washing
temperature for your laundry.
■
The automatic cooling of the washing water over
60°C before draining prevents the temperature of
the water from deforming the plastic pipes of your
drainage system.
Protection of the environment

Ecological hints
In order to obtain water and energy savings and to
protect the environment, we advice you to follow these
instructions:
■
■
■
20
Always wash full loads for maximum savings.
Do not overload the appliance.
Use a programme with prewash only for heavy
soiled items.
Measure out detergent according to the water
hardness, degree of soiling and quantity of laundry
being washed.
Materials marked with the
symbol are
recyclable.
To enable them to be recycled, they must be
placed in the appropriate collection areas (or
containers). Check with your local authorities.
When the appliance is to be scrapped, cut off the
power supply cable and make the door closing
device inoperative to avoid it becoming a death
trap for a child.

INSTALLATION
Unpacking
All transit bolts and packing must be
removed before using the appliance.
You are advised to keep all transit devices so that
they can be refitted if the machine ever has to be
transported again.
Using a spanner, unscrew and remove the rear
right-hand bolt and lay the machine on its back, taking
care not to squash the hoses. This can be avoided by
placing one of the corner packing pieces between the
machine and the floor.
P0255
Remove the polystyrene block from the bottom of the
machine and release the two plastic bags by removing
the adhesive strip.
Carefully remove the right-hand bag (1) then the
left-hand bag (2) by pulling them towards the centre of
the machine.
2
P0234
P0233
P0256
P0020
Set the machine upright and remove the two
remaining bolts from the back.
Pull out the three plastic spacers from the holes into
which the bolts were fitted.
Plug the open holes with the plugs which you will find
at the back of the appliance.
Positioning
Install the machine on a flat hard floor.
Make sure that air circulation around the machine is
not impeded by carpets, rugs etc. Check that the
machine does not touch the wall or other kitchen
units.

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.
A
P0003
P0021
ENGLISH
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.
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.
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.
The drain hose must not be kinked. Run it along the
floor; only the part near the drainage point must be
raised.
P0023
Electrical connection
Before washing
This machine is designed to operate on a 220-230 V,
single-phase, 50 Hz supply.
Before washing your first load of laundry, we
recommend that you run a cotton cycle at 60°C, with
the machine empty, in order to remove any
manufacturing residue from the drum and tub.
Pour half a measure of detergent into the main wash
compartment and start up the machine.
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.

Washing hints
Laundry weights
The following weights are indicative:
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.
Temperatures
95°
for normally soiled white cottons and
linen (e.g. tea cloths, towels, tablecloths,
sheets...)
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).
(cold)
30°-40°
for delicate items (e.g. net curtains),
mixed laundry including synthetic fibres
and woollens bearing the label «pure
new wool, machine washable, nonshrink»
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.
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.

Sorting the laundry
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.
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.
(*) do not use acetone on artificial silk
29
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.
The bleaching agent (chlorine) can be used only for
white or fast coloured cotton and linen items.
Pour it into the compartment marked
.
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.
Use less detergent if:
– you are washing a small load
– the laundry is lightly soiled
– large amounts of foam form during washing.
