suggestions for
economical
washing
For medium soiling, use programmes without prewash. This
will save detergent and water.
Always wash full loads for maximum savings.
Use the “ENERGY SAVING” (Economy) programme for normally or lightly soiled cottons and coloureds.
For best results, even at low temperatures, remove individual
stains from laundry before washing.
Use minimum amounts of detergent. Follow the instructions on
the pack.

Hint:
Keep all transit devices for re-use in case you move house.
The machine stands on four adjustable rubber feet which can be Positioning
used to compensate any unevenness in the floor or to adjust the
machine to the correct height.
P0254
121
Lock the feet in position by fully tightening up the locknuts.
P0509
The appliance must be level and resting on all four feet. It must not
tilt when pressure is exerted on one side only. If necessary, use a
spirit level to check that it is perfectly level.
The floor must be clean, dry and free of any wax residue or other
polish to prevent any risk of sliding. Never use viscous substances
to move the appliance by sliding it across the floor!
It is inadvisable to stand the appliance on long pile carpet or rugs
or on layers of foam rubber, as this could make it unstable. Place
a rubber mat beneath the appliance if the floor is made of very
small tiles.
If the appliance is to be placed on non-solid flooring, especially
made of wooden joists and flexible boards, a waterproof wood
panel, 15 mm thick, must be secured with screws to at least two
of the floor joists. If possible, the machine should be placed in a
corner of the room, as this is where the joists are most firmly fixed
and have less tendency to flex.
Never use wedges of wood, cardboard or other similar materials to
compensate for unevenness in the floor.
If space is tight and you cannot avoid placing the machine next to
a gas oven or coal burning stove, a sheet of insulating material
(85 x 57 cm), covered with aluminium foil on the side facing the
oven or stove, must be fitted between the two appliances.

Connection
Electrical Details of the mains voltage, type of current and protection
connection required are given on the appliance rating plate which can be
found on the frame, after opening the porthole door.
If the appliance is to be permanently connected to the power supply you must install a circuit breaker with a gap of at least 3 mm
between the contacts, which enables the appliance to be completely isolated from the mains supply.
The mains supply cable must not be extended. If it is not long
enough, replace it with a new, longer cable or move the appliance
closer to the power socket.
Connection to Connect the water inlet hose to a tap with a 3/4” thread after havthe mains water ing inserted the small filter supplied with the machine.

P0003
The minimum water pressure must be 5 N/cm2 and the maximum
100 N/cm2.
If the pressure is too high, a reduction valve should be used.
The inlet hose must not be lengthened. If it is too short and you
cannot move the tap, you will have to purchase a new, longer hose
specially designed for this type of use.
The end of the hose connected to the back of the machine can be
turned in any direction. Simply slacken the connector fitting, position the hose as required and fully tighten the connector to avoid
leakage of water.
126
P0021
Every appliance is fitted with a pump for discharging the wash and Water drainage
rinse water. This pump is controlled by the programme selector
mechanism and is capable of pumping water through the drain
hose to a height of up to 1 m above the surface on which the
machine is standing.
The curved end of the drain hose can be positioned in two ways:
Hooked over the edge of the sink. In view of the speed with
which the water comes out during the discharge phase, it is important to ensure that the curved end of the hose cannot slip off the
edge of the sink. It should therefore be tied to the tap with a piece
of string or secured to the wall with a hook, by inserting the hook
into the hole provided in the curved part of the hose.
P0235
Joined into a branch of the sink waste pipe. The branch must
be above the sink trap and at least 60 cm above the floor.
The drain hose may be extended up to a maximum length of
400 cm. Use an extension with an internal diameter the same as
that of the original hose. Use a suitable connector.
The hose extension must rest on the floor and only the part near
the drainage point must be raised.

The START/PAUSE button can also be used to pump out the
water after the SOAK programme and after a programme which
ends with water in drum: the soaking water is only pumped out,
whilst in the other programmes the machine will perform a short
spin.
135
Detergents
Choice of Any of the modern, commercially available detergents made for
detergent use in domestic washing machines may be used.
The type of detergent used depends on the type of fabric and soiling.
The various types of soiling are:
Dirt, e.g. dust, soot, sweat, organic stains, etc.
Stains which respond to bleach, e.g. red wine, fruit, vegetables, etc.
Protein stains, e.g. blood, milk etc.
Detergents are available in the following forms:
Powder detergent, with bleaching agent
Liquid detergent, without bleaching agent
Colour-safe detergents for delicate fabrics and
coloureds, without bleaching agent and often also without
whiteners.
Detergents for wool, without bleach or enzymes, which will
not damage wool fibres.
Detergents for net curtains, with optical whiteners and substances which prevent the curtains from yellowing in sunlight.
Water softening agents to reduce the hardness of tap water.
Bleaching agents or stain removing salts, for concentrated use on stains or as an additive with bleach-free detergents.
Pre-treatment agents, for removing stains prior to washing.
Fabric softeners, to eliminate static charge for synthetics and
to make fabrics feel soft.
Starches and dressing agents, to make garments hold their
shape and make them easier to iron.
Dyes and colour removers may be used in the washing
machine only if indicated on the product pack.

If the detergent manufacturer gives no indication of how much
detergent to use for a part load, we recommend that you reduce
the detergent measure by 1/3rd for a half load and that you use a
half measure of detergent for a minimum load.
The machine is fitted with a special device for preliminary soften- Preliminary
ing of the water by dispensing the softener and the detergent in water softening
two stages. In programmes without prewash it enables the
softener and detergent to be dispensed separately for increased
saving on detergent, and therefore less water pollution.
Separate dispensing of the two substances means that initially,
only the softener is added to the water. When the detergent is then
added, because the water is already soft, it starts to act immediately on dirt in the fabrics. This process ensures optimum washing
results, even with minimum measures of detergent.
Normal water softening agents should be measured out according
to the hardness of the water, following the instructions on the pack
but, because of the preliminary softening device, you may reduce
the quantity by 20%. In this case, always use the amount of detergent recommended on the detergent pack for level I hardness of
water (soft).
Even when a prewash programme is selected, it is still possible
to protect the environment. Pour the detergent and water softening agent together into the prewash and main wash dispenser
compartments.
You may obviously continue to use normal detergents without softening agent, using an amount based on the pack recommendations
and the degree of water hardness.

the washing water from 95°C to about 67°C before draining. This cooling function
is done by taking into the drum a certain amount of cold water
(approx. 3.5 litres).
The water consumption is also slightly increased.
– Pull out the detergent dispenser drawer until the switch is accessible on the left-hand side.
– Use a coin to turn the switch to the symbol if you want to perform
the additional rinse or to the symbol if you want to perform both
fonctions (additional rinse + water cooling).
These fonctions have to be selected prior to selecting the washing programme.

Maintenance and cleaning
Detergent From time to time, clean off any detergent residue remaining in the
dispenser drawer bottom of the drawer compartments.
– To do this, pull out and remove the drawer by pressing down the
catch.
Cl
P0166
The upper part of the liquid additive compartments can also be
removed for easy cleaning.
P0165
Drawer recess
Detergent residue can also accumulate inside the drawer recess,
which should be cleaned occasionally with an old toothbrush.
After cleaning, refit the drawer and push it fully in.

– After each wash programme, partially pull out the detergent
drawer to let it dry.
The filter collects fluff and any small objects which may accidentally have been left in the laundry.
If this filter gets clogged, the programmes will not function properly.
The filter should therefore be cleaned from time to time. Hot water
remaining in the filter can scald! Allow it to cool before cleaning.

The drum The drum is made of stainless steel. Any rusty items left in the laundry (see “Preliminary operations for washing”) could leave rust
stains on the surface of the drum. These stains can be removed
with a suitable stainless steel cleaner, available from the Service
Centre.
Porthole door Remove any deposits or foreign objects from the rubber seal on
the porthole door.
Leave the porthole door ajar after washing; leave it open to allow
the drum to dry and ensure that the machine is properly aired.
Descaling If the correct amount of detergent is used, descaling should not be
necessary. If, however, it does become necessary, use only branded, non-corrosive descalers suitable for washing machines.
These are available from the Service Centre.
Control panel If necessary, clean the control panel with warm water only.

How to deal with problems...
... the machine does not start:
Check that the appliance is plugged in.
Check that a programme has been selected.
Check that the START/PAUSE button has been pressed.
Check that the porthole door is firmly shut.
Check that the fuse has not blown.
Problems you
can solve
yourself
... the door will not open:
Check whether a programme is in progress.
Check whether a programme which ends with water in drum
has been selected.
Check whether the water level is higher than the bottom of the
door.
... the machine does not fill:
Check that the taps are on.
Check whether the filters in the inlet hoses are blocked.
If the machine takes longer than usual to fill with water, check
whether the filters in the inlet hoses are blocked.
To do this, shut the water taps. Unscrew the hoses from the
taps and remove the filters. Clean them with an old toothbrush
then refit them.
Tighten up the inlet hoses.
P0041
... spinning starts slowly:
The electronic unbalance detection device has tripped
because the laundry is not evenly distributed in the drum.
When rotation of the drum is reversed the laundry re-distributes
itself. This may happen several times before the unbalance disappears and the spin resumes normally.
... the machine vibrates or is noisy:
With very small loads (for example just one bathrobe) the
machine may start to vibrate. This does not however affect
performance.
Check that the support feet are correctly adjusted. Refer to the
installation instructions.
Check that all the transit bolts and packing have been
removed. Refer to the installation instructions.
145
... the machine does not empty or does not spin:
Check whether the drain hose is kinked.
Check whether the filter is blocked.
Check whether a programme which ends with water in drum
has been selected.
... spinning is uneven:
If an excessive amount of foam has been formed, the machine
starts spinning and then stops until the foam has gone. Spinning then resumes normally.
When selecting the next programme, check the amount of
detergent used.
... the machine makes strange noises:
The machine is fitted with a modern starting system which
makes an unusual whistling or hissing noise, compared with
other machines.
This new system allows spinning to be started more gently and
provides better control of gradual increase in spin speed.
... too much foam forms during washing:
Too much detergent is being used or the detergent is of the
wrong type. Check the amounts required.
... water is leaking from the bottom of the machine:
Check whether the inlet hose is leaking.
Check whether the drain hose clip has worked loose.
Check whether the drain hose is damaged.
Check that the filter is fully screwed in and properly fitted.
... washing results are poor:
Too little detergent has been used or detergent is of the wrong
type.
If insufficient detergent is used, the laundry will look grey and
lime deposits will be left in the machine. Use the correct
amount of detergent.
Check whether stains were adequately treated prior to washing.
Check whether the programme and temperature selected
were correct.
... stains remain even though they have been treated before
washing:
Probably the stains are indelible. Check with an expert.
146
... there are grey marks on the laundry:
Laundry stained with grease, creams or oil has been washed
with insufficient detergent. The detergent was not strong
enough to shift these stains.
Check whether the temperature selected was too low.
... the fabric softener has left marks on the laundry:
In this case the fabric softener, especially if of the concentrated type, has come into direct contact with the laundry.
Wash out these marks immediately.
... detergent residue is left after the wash cycle:
This is most probably 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.
... the fabric softener has not been introduced in the tub or
there is water left in the compartment marked with the
symbol:
The drawer was pulled out whilst the machine was filling, or the
drawer was not fully inserted.
... foam remains after the last rinse:
Modern detergents can produce foam even after rinsing, but
this will not affect the quality of the wash.
... no water is visible in the drum:
Machines based on modern technology operate very economically using very little water. Their performance however is
excellent.
... the laundry is not sufficiently spun and there is still water
in the drum:
Check whether the drain hose is kinked.
Check whether the filter is blocked.
If the Service Centre is called out for one of the faults listed
above, or as a result of incorrect usage of the machine,
repairs will not be carried out free of charge, even if the
guarantee has not yet expired.
