Warnings
The following warnings are provided in the interests of overall safety. You must read them carefully before
installing or using the appliance.
Installation
• Leave the porthole door slightly ajar when the
appliance is not in use. This preserves the door
seal and prevents the formation of musty smells.
• All internal packing must be removed before using
the appliance. Serious damage may be caused to
the machine or adjacent furniture if the protective
transit devices are not removed or are not
completely removed. Refer to the relevant
paragraph in the instruction book.

Child safety
• Keep all detergents in a safe place out of children’s
reach.
• Children are often not aware of how dangerous
electrical appliances can be. When the machine is
working, children should be carefully supervised
and not be allowed to play with the appliance.
• Make sure that children or pets do not climb into
the drum.
• When the appliance is to be scrapped, cut off the

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.

Before loading the laundry
Removing stains
Never wash whites and coloureds together. Whites
may lose their “whiteness” in the wash.
Stubborn stains may not be removed by just water
and detergent. It is therefore advisable to treat them
prior to washing.
New coloured items may run in the first wash; they
should therefore be washed separately the first time.
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.
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.
Oil based paint: moisten with benzine stain
remover, lay the garment on a soft cloth and dab the
stain; treat several times.
Remove persistent stains before washing. Rub
particularly soiled areas with a special detergent or
detergent paste.
Dried grease stains: moisten with turpentine, lay
the garment on a soft surface and dab the stain with
the fingertips and a cotton cloth.
Treat curtains with special care. Remove hooks or tie
them up in a bag or net.
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.
Maximum loads
Recommended loads are indicated in the
programme charts.
Mould stains: treat with bleach, rinse well (whites
and fast coloureds only).
General rules:
Grass: soap lightly and treat with bleach (whites and
fast coloureds only).
Cotton, linen: drum full but not too tightly packed;
Synthetics: drum no more than half full;
Ball point pen and glue: moisten with acetone (*),
lay the garment on a soft cloth and dab the stain.
Delicate fabrics and woollens: drum no more than
one third full.
Lipstick: moisten with acetone as above, then treat
stains with methylated spirits. Remove any residual
marks from white fabrics with bleach.
Washing a maximum load makes the most efficient
use of water and energy.
For heavily soiled laundry, reduce the load size.

Quantity of detergent to be used
Red wine: soak in water and detergent, rinse and
treat with acetic or citric acid, then rinse. Treat any
residual marks with bleach.
The type and quantity of detergent will depend on
the type of fabric, load size, degree of soiling and
hardness of the water used.
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.
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.
Tar stains: first treat with stain remover, methylated
spirits or benzine, then rub with detergent paste.
Follow the product manufacturers’ instructions on
quantities to use.
(*) do not use acetone on artificial silk.
Use less detergent if:
Detergents and additives
– you are washing a small load,
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 laundry is lightly soiled,
– large amounts of foam form during washing.
Degrees of water hardness
The choice of detergent will depend on the type of
fabric (delicates, woollens, cottons, etc.), the colour,
washing temperature and degree of soiling.
Degrees
Level
Characteristic
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.
The washing machine incorporates a recirculation
system which allows an optimal use of the
concentrated detergent.
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 and do not exceed the «MAX»
mark in the detergent dispenser drawer.

Maintenance
1. Bodywork
3. 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.
Important: do not use methylated spirits, solvents or
similar products to clean the bodywork.
Open the filter door.
Place a container under the filter and unscrew it.
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. To remove the drawer from the
machine, press the button in the rear left-hand
corner.

5. Emergency emptying out
If the water is not discharged (outlet pump is
blocked, filter or drain hose are clogged), proceed as
follows to empty out the machine:
ENGLISH
• 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 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 drain hose and that of the inlet
hose in a bowl placed on the floor.
• Select programme “M” and run it until the machine
stops.
• Remove the plug from the socket.
• Screw the water inlet hose back on and put the
drain 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
Possible cause
• The machine does not start up:
• The door is not firmly closed.
• The machine is not plugged in or there is no power
at the socket.
• The main fuse has blown.
• The programme selector dial is not positioned correctly
and the ON/OFF button has not been depressed.
• The machine does not fill:
• The water tap is closed.
• The inlet hose is squashed or kinked.
• The filter in the inlet hose is blocked.
• The door is not properly closed.
• The machine fills then empties
immediately:
• The end of the drain hose is too low. Refer to
relevant paragraph in “water drainage” section.
• The machine does not empty
and/or does not spin:
• The drain hose is squashed or kinked.
• The option
has been selected.
• The laundry is not evenly distributed in the drum.
• The drain filter is clogged.
• A programme which stops with water in tub has
been selected.
• Too much detergent or unsuitable detergent
(creates too much foam) has been used.
• There is water on the floor:
• 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.
• The drain hose is damaged.
• 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.
• The transit bolts and packing have not been
removed.
• The machine vibrates or is
noisy:
• The support feet have not been adjusted.
• The laundry is not evenly distributed in the drum.
• Maybe there is very little laundry in the drum.
• The door will not open:
• The programme is still running.
• The door lock has not been released.

Problem
Possible cause
• 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 select the spin programme.
Water is not
visible in the machine. The machine,
which is the result of modern technology, runs
in a very economical way with low water
consumption. Performance is
nevertheless excellent.
The machine makes an unusual
noise. The machine is fitted with a commutator
motor which improves machine
performance.
