6. WASHING HINTS
6.1 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.
6.2 Temperatures
Temp Soil level
90°C For normally soiled white
cottons and linen (e.g. teacloths,
towels, tablecloths, sheets...).
60°C For normally soiled, colourfast
50°C garments (e.g. shirts, night
dresses, pajamas....) in linen,
cotton or synthetic fibres and
for lightly soiled white cotton
(e.g.underwear).
40°C For delicate items (e.g. net
30°C curtains), mixed laundry
Cold including synthetic fibres and
woollens bearing the label pure
new wool, machine washable,
non-shrink.
6.3 Before Loading The
Laundry
Make sure that no
metal objects are
left in the laundry
(e.g. coin, hair clips,
safety pins, pins).
Wash bras, pantyhose
and other delicates in a
mesh laundry bag,
which you can purchase
from your supermarket.
Make sure that you wash lint collectors
separately from lint producers.
Never wash whites and coloured
fabrics 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.
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 a net.
6.4 Maximum Loads
Recommended loads are indicated in the
program charts on page 11.
General rules:
Clothes Load
Quantity
Cotton, linen
drum full but not too
tightly packed;
drum no more than
half full;
Delicate fabrics drum no more than
one third full.
and woollens
Synthetics
Washing a maximum load makes the
most efficient use of water and energy.
For heavily soiled laundry, reduce the
load size.
6.5 Removing Stains
Button up pillowcases,
close zip fasteners,
hooks and poppers.
Tie any belts or long
tapes.
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.
23
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 in cold
water. 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.
6.6 Detergents Type And
Quantity Of Detergent
Low sudsing detergent is required for this
washing machine to prevent oversudsing
problems, unsatisfactory washing result
and harm to the machine.
Low sudsing detergents designed for
front load washing machines are labelled
“Front Loading”, “high efficiency”, “HE”,
such as Cold Power for Front Loaders or
“Matic”.
Do not use wrong types of detergent,
such as Top Loading, Handwash
detergent or Soap-Based products in
your frontload washing machine. This
can result in excessive suds, longer
cycle time, low spin speeds, poor
rinsing and overloading of the motor.
Quantity of detergent to be
used
The choice of detergent and use of
correct quantities not only affects your
wash performance, but also helps 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 and quantity of detergent will
depend on ;
type of fabric (delicates, woollens,
cottons, etc.) ;
the colour of clothes ;
size of the load ;
degree of soil ;
wash temperature ; and
hardness of the water used.
Water hardness is classified by 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.
You may have to try using the detergent
quantity as per manufacturers’
instructions then compare the wash
result to the list below and adjust the
amount of detergent for your future
washes accordingly.
24
www.electrolux.com
Not enough detergent causes:
the washload to turn grey,
greasy clothes.
Too much detergent causes:
oversudsing,
reduced washing effect,
inadequate rinsing.
Use less detergent if:
you are washing a small load,
the laundry is lightly soiled,
large amounts of foam during washing.

11.2 Positioning
It is important that your washing machine
stands firm and leveled on the floor to
ensure correct operation. The appliance
must not be installed behind a lockable
door, a sliding door or a door with a
hinge on the opposite side to avoid
restricting the washing machine door.
When the washing machine is levelled,
try to rock it from corner to corner. If it
does rock, adjust the legs again until it is
levelled and does not rock.
Use a spirit level on the top and side of
the washing machine to check the levels.
Never place cardboard, wood or similar
materials under the machine to
compensate for any unevenness in the
floor. Install the machine on a flat hard
floor. Make sure that air circulation
around the machine is not impeded by
carpets, rugs etc.
If you do not have a spirit level, as a
guide use the edge of a door frame,
cupboard or bench to check that the

Fitting Hose Guide
Pull apart to
insert hose.
In this case, make sure the end
cannot come unhooked when the
machine will be emptied. 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.

11.5 Electrical Connection
This machine is designed to operate on a
220-240 V~, single-phase, 50 Hz supply.
“An incorrect power supply may void
your warranty.”
Check that your domestic electrical
installation can take the maximum load
required (2.1 kW), also taking into
account any other appliances in use.
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 twisted or
curled. Run it along the floor; only the
part near the drainage point must be
raised.
For the correct functioning of the
machine, the drain hose must remain
hooked on the proper support piece
situated on the top part of back side of
the appliance.
CAUTION!
Connect the machine to an
earthed socket outlet.
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 shall be carried
out by our Service Centre.
When the appliance is installed, the
power supply cable must be easily
accessible.
If this appliance is supplied from a cord
extension set or electrical portable outlet
device, the cord extension set or
electrical portable device must be
positioned so that it is not subject to
splashing or ingress of moisture.

12.3 Ecological Hints
To save water, energy and to help
protect the environment, we recommend
that you follow these tips:
Normally soiled laundry may be
washed without prewashing in order to
save detergent, water and time (the
environment is protected too!).
The machine works more economically
if it is fully loaded.
With adequate pre-treatment, stains
and limited soiling can be removed; the
laundry can then be washed at a lower
temperature.
Measure out detergent according to
the water hardness, the degree of
soiling and the quantity of laundry
being washed.
