INSTRUCTION BOOKLET
YOUR NEW WASHING MACHINE
This new washing machine, which is fitted with
the Jet System, patented Zanussi, meets all
modern needs for effective treatment of laundry
with low water, energy and detergent
consumption.
Further savings are achieved by washing small
loads of laundry, since water and electricity
consumption is proportional to the quantity and
type of laundry being washed.
n
The temperature selector dial allows you to
choose personally the suitable washing
temperature for your laundry.
n
The special wool programme with its new
delicate wash system treats your woollen with
extreme gentleness.
The automatic cooling of the washing water
from 95°C to 60°C before draining will
prevent plastic pipes of your drainage system
from being deformed.
The anti-unbalance device ensures that the
washing machine remains stable when
spinning.

Washing machine scrapping
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.
For correct disposal of the machine, contact
your local authority department which provides
for collection of urban solid refuse.

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.
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

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.
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,
non-shrink»
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.

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.
9
ENGLISH
i
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
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.
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.
Follow the product manufacturer’s
recommendations on quantities to use.

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.
Important: do not use methylated spirits,
solvents or similar products to clean the
bodywork.
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 lefthand corner.
To facilitate cleaning, the top part of the additive
compartments can be removed.
P0224
Detergent can also eventually accumulate inside
the drawer recess: clean it with an old
toothbrush. Refit the drawer after cleaning.
P0038
3. Water inlet filters
If your water is very hard or contains traces of
lime deposit, the water inlet filters may become
clogged.
It is therefore a good idea to clean them from
time to time.
Turn off the water taps. Unscrew the water inlet
hoses. Remove and clean the filters using a
hard bristle brush. Replace the filters and
tighten up the inlet hoses.

5. Emergency emptying out
6. The dangers of freezing
If the water is not discharged (drain pump is
blocked, filter or drain hose are clogged),
proceed as follows to empty out the machine:
n pull out the plug from the power socket;
n close the water taps;
n if necessary, wait until the water has cooled
down;
n place a bowl on the floor;
n put the drain hose end into the bowl and let
the water come out.
Should it not be possible to have access to the
drain hose because, for example, the appliance
is built in the kitchen furniture, slightly loosen the
drain filter after placing a bowl on the floor, to let
the water come out slowly.
At the end screw the filter again.
If the machine is exposed to temperatures below
0°C, certain precautions should be taken.
n Turn off the water taps.
n Unscrew the inlet hoses.
n Unhook the drain hose from the rear support
and position the end of this hose and that of
the inlet hoses in a bowl. Run the draining
programme until the selector dial is in the
“Stop” position.
n Switch the machine off.
n Screw the inlet hoses and reposition the drain
hose.
n When you intend to start the machine up
again, make sure that the room temperature
is above 0°C.

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 and the ON/OFF button
depressed.
Check that the water taps are open.
Check that water is coming out of the taps.
Check that the inlet hoses are not squashed
or kinked.
Check that the filters in the inlet hoses are
not blocked.
Check that the door is closed.

The end of the drain hose is too low. Refer to
relevant paragraph in “water drainage”
section.

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.
Check that the drain filter has been refitted
correctly after cleaning.
Too little detergent or unsuitable detergent
has been used.
Stubborn stains have not been treated prior
to washing.
The correct temperature or programme was
not selected.

Spinning starts late or the
machine does not spin:

The machine makes an unusual
noise:
n
Possible cause
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.
The programme is still running.
The door lock has not yet been released.
The door can be opened when the door
locked light is off.
There is water in the drum.
The machine, which is the result of modern
technology, runs in a very economical way
with low water consumption. Performance is
nevertheless excellent.
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 programe.
The machine is fitted with a commutator
motor which makes an unusual noise
compared with other traditional machines.
This motor enables a softer start to the spin
and controls the increase in spin speed
better. In this way, machine performance is
improved.
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.
