D
“COLD WASH” button
By pressing this button it is possible to transform every programme into a cold washing one,
without modifying other characteristics (water level, times, rythmes, etc...).
Curtains, small carpets, man made delicate fabrics, non coulor fast garments can be safely
washed thanks to this new device.
E
“SENSITIVE CARE” button
By pressing this button you can activate a special new wash cycle in the Cotton and Mixed
Fabrics programs, thanks to the new Sensor System. This option treats with care the fibres of
garments and the delicate skin of those who wear them.
The load is washed in a much larger quantity of water and this, together with the new combined
action of the drum rotation cycles, where water is filled and emptied, will give you garments which
have been cleaned and rinsed to perfection. The amount of water in the wash is increased so that
the detergent dissolves perfectly, ensuring an efficient cleaning action. The amount of water is also
increased during the rinse procedure so as to remove all traces of detergent from the fibres. This
function has been specifically designed for people with delicate and sensitive skin, for whom even
a very small amount of detergent can cause irritation or allergy.
You are advised to also use this function for children’s clothing and for delicate fabrics in general,
or when washing garments made of towelling, where the fibres tend to absorb a greater quantity of
detergent. To ensure the best performance for your wash, this function is always activated on the
Delicates and Woollens/Handwash programs.
8
“DELAY START” button
F
This button allows you to pre-programme the wash cycle to delay the start of the cycle for up
to 24 hours.
To delay the start use the following procedure:
Set the required programme.
Press the button once to activate it (h00 appears on the display) and then press it again to set
a 1 hour delay (h01 appears on the display); the pre-set delay increases by 1 hour each time
the button is pressed, until h24 appears on the display, at which point pressing the button
again will reset the delay start to zero.
Confirm by pressing the “START/PAUSE” button (the light on the display starts to flash). The
countdown will begin and when it has finished the programme will start automatically.
It is possible to cancel the delay start by taking the following action:
Press and hold the button for 5 seconds until the display will show the settings for the
programme selected.
At this stage it is possible to start the programme previously selected by pressing the
“START/PAUSE” button or to cancel the process by setting the selector to the OFF position
and then selecting another programme.
Warning: If there is any break in the power supply while
the machine is operating, a special memory stores the
selected programme and, when the power is restored, it
continues where it left off.
G
“SPIN SPEED” button
The spin cycle is very important to remove as much water as possible from the laundry without
damaging the fabrics. You can adjust the spin speed of the machine to suit your needs.
By pressing this button, it is possible to reduce the maximum speed, and if you wish, the spin cycle
can be cancelled.
To reactivate the spin cycle press the button until you reach the spin speed you would like to set.
To prevent damage to the fabrics, it is not possible to increase the speed over that which is
automatically suitable during the selection of the program.
It is possible to modify the spin speed without to pausing the machine.
Note:
The machine is fitted with a special electronic device, which
prevents the spin cycle should the load be unbalanced.
This reduces the noise and vibration in the machine and so
prolongs the life of your machine.

When washing heavily soiled laundry it is recommended the load is reduced to 3/4 kg
maximum.
** STANDARD COTTON PROGRAMMES ACCORDING TO (EU) No 1015/2010 and
No 1061/2010
COTTON PROGRAMME with a temperature of 60°C
COTTON PROGRAMME with a temperature of 40°C
These programmes are suitable to clean normally soiled cotton laundry and they are the most
efficient programmes in terms of combined energy and water consumptions for washing
cotton laundry.
These programmes have been developed to be compliant with the temperature on the wash
label on the garments and the actual water temperature may slightly differ from the declared
temperature of the cycle.
The spin speed may also be reduced, to match any guidelines suggested on the
fabric label, or for very delicate fabrics cancel the spin completely this option is
available with a spin speed button.
13
Programme selector
For the various types of fabrics and various degrees of dirt the washing machine has
different programme bands according to: wash cycle, temperature and lenght of cycle (see
table of washing cycle programmes).
RESISTANTS FABRICS
The Cotton programmes are designed for maximum washing and rinsing
efficiency. With spin cycles in between, the programme guarantees the
laundry is rinsed perfectly. The final spin cycle ensures laundry is spun dry
as much as possible up to the maximum speed.
The Cotton programme includes a Prewash cycle. This option is
particularly useful for really dirty loads and can be used independently of
the main wash programme. Additional detergent for the Prewash part of
the programme should be added to the first compartment of the soap
drawer labelled "I" (please refer to the section of this manual entitled
“Detergent”). We recommend you use only 20% of the quantity used for
the main wash programme.
DAILY WASH 30°C – FAST 30’
A complete washing cycle (wash, rinse and spin), able to wash in
approximately 30 minutes:
- a maximum load of 2/2,5 kg;
- lightly soiled fabrics (cotton and mixed fabrics)
We recommend, with this programme, a 20% detergent loading dose
(compared to the normal one), in order to avoid detergent waste.
DAILY WASH 40°C – FAST 44’
A complete washing cycle (wash, rinse and spin), able to wash in
approximately 44 minutes:
- a maximum load of 3/3,5 kg;
- lightly soiled fabrics (cotton and mixed fabrics)
We recommend, with this programme, a 30% detergent loading dose
(compared to the normal one), in order to avoid detergent waste.
SPECIAL “RINSE” PROGRAMME
This programme carries out three rinses with a intermediate spin
(which can be reduced or excluded by using the correct button). It can
be used for rinsing any type of fabric, eg. use after hand-washing.
SPECIAL “SPIN” PROGRAMME
Programme “SPIN” carries out a maximum spin (which can be reduced by
using the correct button).
14
DRAIN ONLY
This programme drains out the water.
SPECIAL DELICATE FIBRES
This is a new wash cycle which alternates washing and soaking
and is particularly recommended for very delicate fabrics.
The wash cycle and rinses are carried out with high water levels
to ensure best results.
WOOL & HAND WASH PROGRAMME
This programme allows a complete washing cycle for garments
specified as "Machine Washable"Wool fabrics and laundry items
specified as "Hand Wash only" on the fabric label.
The programme has a maximum temperature of 30°C and concludes
with 3 rinses, one for fabric conditioner, and a slow
spin.
ACTIVECO PROGRAMME
This innovative programme, allows you to wash different
fabrics and colours together, such as cottons, synthetics
and mixed fabrics at only 20°C and provides an excellent
leaning performance.
C o n s u m p t i o n o n t h i s p r o gra m s a b o u t 4 0 % o f a
conventional 40°C. cottons wash.
MIXED AND SYNTHETIC FABRICS
The main wash and the rinse gives best results thanks to the rotation
rhythms of the drum and to the water levels.
A gentle spin will mean that the fabrics become less creased.
15
Auto half load
The washing machine is fitted with a self adjusting water level system.
This system enables the machine to use the amount of water needed to wash and rinse the
laundry in relation to the particular load.
This results in a reduction of the water and electricity used, without in any way compromising
the washing and rinsing performance.
In fact the amount of water and electricity used will always be appropriate for the clothes load.
The washing machine automatically ensures excellent washing results at minimum cost whilst
respecting the environment .
16
Detergent drawer
P
The detergent drawer is split into 3 compartments:
- the compartment labelled "1" is for prewash detergent;
- the compartment labelled " " is for special additives,
fabric softeners, fragrances, starch, brighteners etc;
- the compartment labelled "2" is for main wash
detergent.
NOTE:
Some Detergents are Difficult to
utilise. Ensure to use an in drum
dispenser if recommended by
the detergent Manufacturer.
Note: only put liquid products in the compartment
labelled “
”. The machine is programmed to
automatically take up additives during the final rinse
stage for all wash cycles.
17
Detergents, washing aids and amounts to use
Choice of detergent
General purpose detergents
-
-
Powder detergents, for a thorough wash, with bleaching agent, particularly suitable for
use in hot wash programmes (60°C and over), for heavily soiled and stained laundry.
Liquid detergents, particularly suitable for grease stains, such as greasy skin marks,
cosmetics and oil.
These detergents are not suitable for washing stained laundry, as they do not contain
bleach.
Biological detergents, not all the products available give a really thorough wash.
Additional laundry aids
-
Water softener, means less detergent can be used where water hardness is classed as
hard to very hard.
Prewash substances, for the programmed treatment of stains prior to the main wash.
Using them means the subsequent wash can be at a low temperature or with bleach-free
detergents.
Fabric softener, prevents static build-up in synthetic fabrics and softens fabrics.
If you own a tumble dryer, clothes are softened even without the use of a fabric softener.
Do not put solvents in the washing machine!
Keep detergents and other laundry products out of children’s reach.
Before pouring in the detergent check that there are no foreign bodies in the detergent
drawer.
Dosage details are usually shown on the detergent packaging. Follow those instructions.
18
Dosages
Only use detergents which are suitable for use in a washing machine.
You will obtain the best results from your wash with the minimum use of chemical products
and the best care for your laundry if you take into consideration the degree of soiling as well
as the type of detergent to choose.
The amount of detergent to use depends on:
- water hardness: depending on the hardness of the water and the type of detergent used, it
is possible to reduce the amount of detergent.
- the degree of soiling: it is possible to reduce the amount of detergent used depending on
the degree of soiling.
- amount of laundry: it is possible to reduce the amount of detergent when washing only a
small amount of laundry.
Dosage for powder detergent
For normal and low concentration detergents: for normally soiled laundry choose a
programme without prewash.
Put the detergent in compartment “2” of the drawer.
For heavily soiled laundry, choose a programme with prewash.
Put 1/4 of the detergent in compartment “1”, 3/4 in compartment “2” of the drawer.
When using water softeners, first put in the detergent, then add the softener to compartment “2”.
For highly concentrated detergents not in single dose format, follow what is shown on pack
exactly as regards type and amount of dosage.
To avoid the difficulty of checking if the detergent has been taken up, use the dosage aids
provided in the detergent packaging.
Liquid detergent dosage
Liquid detergents may be used in accordance with the instructions on the relevant
packaging, for all programmes without prewash, by using the special container which is
placed in the drum or, for those models that have it, in the special insert for liquid detergents.
19
Useful advice for users
Tips on using your domestic appliance in the most environmentally-friendly and economical
way
Do a full load in your washing machine
To prevent any possible waste of energy, water or detergent we recommend that you put a
full load in your washing machine, not exceed the recommended maximum load size.
Up to 50% energy saving can be made with one full load compared to two half load washes
When is prewashing really needed?
Only with particularly dirty loads!
Energy savings of 5 to 15% are made by not selecting the prewash option for normal soiled
laundry.
Which wash temperature should you choose?
Using stain removers before machine washing reduces the need to wash at temperatures
over 60°C.
Energy savings of up to 50% can be made by using a 60°C wash temperature rather than
90°C
20
Main wash
Sorting the laundry
-
It is recommended you wash only items which are machine washable with water and
detergent and not dry-clean items.
-
If you need to wash rugs, bedspreads or other heavy items, it is best not to spin them.
-
Sort the laundry according to fabric type, degree of soiling and wash temperature: Always
follow the wash care advice on the garment label for the most suitable care and
treatment of the laundry
Laundry for hot wash
Coloured, easy-care materials
Delicates and wool
Wash by hand
Items labelled with the following symbol are not suitable for machine washing:
Dry clean
For very delicate items, such as net curtains, underwear, tights etc., you are advised to
use a laundry net or wash bag.
Woollen items must be labelled with the "Pure New Wool" symbol to be washed in the
machine, and must also be labelled "non-matting" or "machine washable".
Colour often leaks from new coloured items.
This can then colour other lighter items being washed.
We therefore recommend that coloured items should be washed for the first time
separately.
For future washes, colourfast items can only be washed with whites up to 40°C.
-
Note: when sorting laundry
-
check there are no metal objects in the laundry
(such as paper clips, safety pins, pins, coins
etc...);
button up pillowcases, fasten zips, hook & eye
fasteners, belts and long dressing gown cords;
remove curtain hooks;
pay close attention to the labels on items
if you notice stubborn stains whilst sorting the
laundry, remove them using a special detergent or
a special stain remover.
- We recommend that you do not do a full load of towelling items only as these become too
heavy since they absorb a lot of water.
21
The correct way to wash
Preparing the laundry
A) Select the laundry.
Loading the laundry
B) Open the porthole.
C) Put the laundry in the washing machine.
Close the porthole again, ensuring that no items of
laundry are obstructing the lock.
Putting detergent in machine
D) Open the drawer, choose the detergent and put in
the correct amount, according to the manufacturer’s
instructions and the advice on page 18.
Add any other laundry aids (see page 18). Close the
drawer again.
Selecting the wash programme
Refer to the programme guide or the programme descriptions on the machine to select the
most suitable programme.
Turning the selector knob, the required programme is activated.
Press additional function buttons (if required).
Check that the tap is turned on and that the discharge hose is positioned correctly.
Press the "Start/Pause" button.
When the "Start/Pause" button is pressed the machine sets the working sequence in motion.
The programme carries out with the programme selector stationary on the selected
programme till cycle ends.
Warning: If there is any break in the power supply while the machine is operating, a special
memory stores the selected programme and, when the power is restored, it continues where
it left off.
When the programme is finished
The word “End” will appear on the display.
Wait for the door lock to be released (about 2 minutes after the programme has finished).
The "Door Security" indicator light will go out.
Switch off the machine by turning the programme selector on the “OFF” position. Open the
door and remove the laundry. Turn off the tap.
22
Cleaning and routine maintenance
Do not use alcohol-based scourers and / or thinners on the outside of your washing machine,
just a wipe with a damp cloth will suffice. The washing machine needs very little maintenance:
- Cleaning the drawer compartments.
- Cleaning the filter.
- Cleaning the door glass.
Cleaning the drawer compartments
Even if it is not strictly necessary, it is good to clean the
compartments for bleaching detergents and additives
occasionally.
A) To do this you just need to pull them out firmly, but
without forcing them.
B) Clean everything in the compartment under running
water.
C) Put everything back in its proper place.
Cleaning the filter
The washing machine is fitted with a special filter for
handling large deposits which could block the discharge
hose (coins, buttons etc.) and which can, therefore, be
easily retrieved.
We recommend that the filter be cleaned at least
once a month.
The cleaning operation is as follows:
1) Open the flap
2) Only available on certain models:
Pull out the corrugated hose, remove the stopper and
drain the water into a container.
3) Before removing the filter, place an absorbent towel
below the filter cap to collect the small amount of
water likely to be inside the pump
4) Turn the filter anti-clockwise until it stops in the
vertical position.
Remove and clean.
5) After cleaning, replace by turning the notch on the
end of the filter clockwise. Then follow all procedures
described above in reverse order.
23
Attention: if the filter needs cleaning while there is
washing still in the drum, follow the instructions on the
following page to empty the water. This will prevent
excessive loss of water via the filter.
Cleaning the door glass
Regularly clean the door glass with a damp cloth. A build
up of soiling and
residues from the water may result in water leaking from
the door.
Do not use abrasive cleaners as they can scratch the
surface.
Transporting the appliance or long
periods when appliance is not in
use
If the appliance is being transported or is out of use for
long periods in unheated places, all remaining water
must be completely removed from the hoses.
Ensure mains power is off, then unclip the hose and
point it downwards into a basin until all the water has
emptied out.
When finished, repeat the operation in the reverse order.

The machine makes a
different noise when
spinning! This is because it
has a brush motor for better
performance.
Call service.
Only a small level of water can be
seen in the drum! This is because
new machines do not use much
water, yet achieve the same
standard of washing and rinsing.

Note:
The use of environmentally-friendly, phosphate-free detergents can have the following effects:
- waste water from rinsing may be cloudier because of the presence of zeolites held in
suspension, without the rinse performance being adversely affected;
- presence of white powder (zeolites) on laundry after washing, which is not absorbed by
the fabric and does not alter the colour of the fabric.
- The presence of foam in the final rinsing water is not necessarily an indication of poor
rinsing.
- Anionic surfactants used in washing detergent formulae often prove to be difficult to
remove from the laundry itself and, even in small quantities, can still cause considerable
foam production.
- Carrying out more rinse cycles does not serve any purpose in such cases.

Note: we recommend you keep the screws to
immobilise the machine for future transit.
The Manufacturers will not be responsible for any
possible damage to the machine caused by not
following the rules relating to releasing the mechanism.
The user is responsible for all costs of installation.
Water connection
The appliance must be connected to the water mains using new
hose-sets.
The old hose-sets should not be re-used.
The machine has an inlet hose with 3/4" B.S.P threaded end
connection to attach between the threaded connector on the
appliance and the cold water supply.
This machine only uses cold water, therefore
only one hose is needed to connect to the cold
water supply. Do not connect to the hot supply.
Cold fill is an energy efficient system. Only the
water required for the washing is heated.There
is no loss of heat in the pipeline from a hot
water tank or boiler to the machine.

Note: it is advisable to turn off the tap after each wash
to isolate the washing machine from the water supply.
For the washing machine to function properly the terminal end of the discharge hose (mouth)
must be at a minimum of 50 cm and a maximum of 85 cm from the ground.
ELECTRICAL CONNECTIONS
After installation, the appliance must be positioned so that the plug is accessible.
If the plug we supply does not fit
CUT IT OFF AND DESTROY IT!
You can’t use it on other appliances, and the exposed wires could be dangerous if plugged in.
To fit a replacement plug, proceed as follows:
Connect
to the terminal in the plug

WARNING
This appliance must be earthed
Fuses and plugs
This appliance should be used only on a socket with a minimum rating of 13 Amp.
Our ready-fitted plug is already equipped with a 13 amp fuse which is BS 1362 ASTA
approved. Any replacement should be exactly the same.
If the fuse cover is lost, do not use the plug until it is replaced. A correct replacement fuse
cover (obtainable from your local retailer) must be the same colour as shown or named on
the insert on the base of the plug.

Recommendations on the use of detergent at various temperatures
When washing heavily soiled whites, we recommend using cotton programs of 60°C or
above and a normal washing powder (heavy duty) that contains bleaching agents that at
medium/high temperatures provide excellent results.
For washes between 40°C and 60°C the type of detergent used needs to be appropriate
for the type of fabric and level of soiling.
Normal powders are suitable for “white” or colour fast fabrics with high soiling, while liquid
detergents or “colour protecting” powders are suitable for coloured fabrics with light
levels of soiling.
For washing at temperatures below 40°C we recommend the use of liquid detergents or
detergents specifically labeled as suitable for low temperature washing.
For washing wool or silk, only use detergents specifically formulated for these fabrics.
For dosage amounts please follow the instructions on the detergent package label.
The manufacturer declines all responsibility in the event of any printing mistakes in
this booklet. The manufacturer also reserves the right to make appropriate
modifications to its products without changing the essential characteristics.
This appliance is marked according to the European directive 2012/19/EU on Waste Electrical and
Electronic Equipment (WEEE). WEEE contains both polluting substances (which can cause negative
consequences for the environment) and basic components (which can be re-used). It is important to
have WEEE subjected to specific treatments, in order to remove and dispose properly all pollutants,
and recover and recycle all materials. Individuals can play an important role in ensuring that WEEE
does not become an environmental issue; it is essential to follow some basic rules:
- WEEE should not be treated as household waste;
- WEEE should be handed over to the relevant collection points managed by the municipality or
by registered companies. In many countries, for large WEEE, home collection could be present.
In many countries, when you buy a new appliance, the old one may be returned to the retailer who
has to collect it free of charge on a one-to-one basis, as long as the equipment is of equivalent type
and has the same functions as the supplied equipment.
