Connecting the Cold Fill Hose
This Appliance must be connected to a COLD WATER
supply only
Only one hose is required to install this machine to a cold water supply.
Cold fill is an energy efficient system. Only the water required to wash the laundry
is heated. There is no loss of heat in the pipeline from the hot water tank or the
boiler.
If your previous machine installation was hot and cold fill ensure that the hot tap is
firmly closed to prevent leakage.
Connection to the cold supply
The machine has an inlet hose with 19mm (3/4") threaded ferules fitted to the
end. This hose connects between the threaded connector on the rear of the
appliance and the water supply.
Only use the new hose supplied to connect the machine and ensure that the
sealing washers are in place inside the hose connectors.
Do not re-use an old hose which was attached to the existing installation.
Do not over-tighten the connections. Hand tight is sufficient.
Do not trap or kink the hose.

Useful washing advice
Tips on using your appliance in the most environmentally-friendly and economical
way
Loading your washing machine
To make further reductions of energy, water and detergent consumption, we
recommend that you put a full load into your machine. Energy savings of up to
50% can be achieved by washing one full load compared to two half loads.
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 less dirty 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
40°C wash temperature.
Heavily soiled laundry
To ensure the best performance when washing a particularly dirty load, we
recommend that you reduce the amount of items to be put into the machine. If the
drum is not crammed full, the items will circulate more freely and will wash
cleaner.
ARIEL - Chosen and recommended by Hoover
When we produce a new washing machine we subject it to every test possible.
And one of the most important tests is the one that enables our experts to identify
the most suitable detergent for solving laundry problems. Ariel was able to meet
our needs: to make the washing machine function efficiently, not compromise the
machine’s lifespan and produce the best wash results. Consistently excellent
results, which was the main aim of the test we carried out, determined our choice
and our recommendation. The prime function of a detergent that answers all
washing requirements is to work with the water to remove dirt from fabrics,
holding it in suspension until it is removed when the water is pumped out, and to
control the amount of foam forming in the washing machine, without damaging the
fibres of the items being washed. Ariel fully satisfies all these requirements, as it
contains high quality elements, the result of the most advanced research,
ensuring excellent results under all conditions.

Description of Controls
All the controls on your product’s control panel are listed as follows. The button
functions are selected when the buttons are pressed in. Carefully read the
relevant descriptions detailed below:
On/Off
After selecting the programme press the on/off button to start the machine. At the
end of the cycle press again to reset the button and switch off the appliance.
Power on
Power off
Door Locked Indicator Light
A special safety device prevents the door from being opened immediately
after the end of the cycle. A ‘Door locked’ indicator light is illuminated when
the door is fully closed. Wait for 2 minutes after the wash cycle has finished
and the door locked neon has gone off before opening the door. As a safety
measure check that there is no water evident in the drum.
Extra Rinse
This option adds more water at the rinsing stage. This can help to avoid skin
irritation from detergent residues for people with particularly sensitive skin.
Selecting the Extra Rinse button is also recommended when washing heavily
soiled fabrics, requiring the use of a lot of detergent, or when the wash load
contains items made of towelling whose fabrics have a greater tendency to retain
detergent.
Creaseguard
This option is available on delicates and woollens. When this option is selected
the machine will stop and the load will be held within the water in the drum. This
reduces the creasing. To continue with the wash cycle the Creaseguard button
must be pressed and the programme will re-start.
Economy button
This option can be utilised on all programmes. By selecting the Economy option
the wash temperature is limited to the water inlet temperature thus reducing
energy consumption.

PROGRAMME Selector
Note: do not press the on/off button before selecting
the programme. Never turn the knob anti-clockwise.
The tables in the washing section describe the various programmes and illustrate
the number or symbol to select for them.
Note: this model is fitted with an electronic “sensor”
device that checks the load is balanced correctly. If the
load is slightly unbalanced the machine will re-balance
it automatically to then carry out the normal spin.
If, after several attempts, balance is not restored a
reduced spin speed will be used.
If loads are seriously unbalanced the spin stage will be
cancelled.
This helps limit vibration, reduce noise and improve
the washing machine’s reliability and life.

For these, we suggest you use the recommended
dispenser which is placed inside the drum.
This ensures that the liquid detergent is dispersed in the drum only when needed.
–
the third, labelled “ ” is for special additives, fabric softeners, fragrances,
starch, brighteners etc.
The machine is programmed to automatically take up additives during the final
rinse stage for all wash cycles.
Note: only put special additives, fabric softeners,
fragrances, starch, brighteners, etc, in the third
compartment.
Detergents, washing aids and amounts to
use
Choice of detergent
General purpose detergents
– Powder detergents, for a thorough wash, with bleaching agents, are
particularly suitable for use in hot wash programmes (60°C and over), for
heavily soiled and stained laundry.
– Liquid detergents, are 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.
14
40000693.qxd
13/11/2003
16:45
Page 15
Special detergents
– Detergents for coloureds and delicates, without added bleach, also often
without any optical brightening agents, to preserve the colour.
– Detergents for a thorough wash, without added bleach or enzymes,
particularly suitable for handling woollen fibres.
– Detergents for curtains with optical brightening agents, resistant to light, to
prevent yellowing from sunlight.
– Special detergents for programmed use of chemical substances, depending
on fabric type, degree of soiling and water hardness.
Here basic detergents, softeners, bleaches/stain removers can be added
separately.
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!
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.
15
40000693.qxd
13/11/2003
16:45
Page 16
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 softer the
water supply, the less detergent is required.
- the degree of soiling, it is possible to reduce the amount of detergent used
depending on the degree of soiling. Use less detergent for less soiled items.
- amount of laundry, it is possible to reduce the amount of detergent when
washing only a small amount of laundry. For smaller loads use less detergent.
The amounts shown on pack for detergents for washing delicates often already
refer to a reduced wash size.
Follow the dosage instructions!
Dosage for powder detergent
For normal and low concentration detergents: for normally soiled laundry
choose a programme without prewash.
Put the detergent in compartment II of the drawer.
For heavily soiled laundry, choose a programme with prewash.
Put 1/4 of the detergent in compartment I, 3/4 in compartment II of the drawer.
When using water softeners, first put in the detergent, then add the softener to
compartment II.
For highly concentrated detergents not in single dose format, follow exactly what
is shown on pack with regards to 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 recommended
dispenser which is placed in the drum.

Programme selector
The washing machine has different programme groups according to type of wash,
temperature, spin speeds and duration for handling the various types of fabric and
their level of soiling (see wash programme guide).
1. COTTONS
The programmes are designed for maximum washing and rinsing. With spin
cycles in between, they guarantee the laundry is rinsed perfectly. The final
spin cycle ensures laundry is spun dry as much as possible up to the
maximum speed.
2. SYNTHETICS and mixed fabrics
Washing and rinsing performance is optimised through drum rotation speeds
and water levels. The delicate action spin minimises creasing.
3. DELICATES
This is a new concept in washing, with a cycle that comprises of alternate
periods of activity and pauses, particularly suitable for washing very delicate
fabrics, such as Pure New Wool.
Wash and rinsing are carried out using a high water level to provide the best
results.
4. QUICK PROGRAMME
32 Minute Wash
This washing machine also has a 32 Minute Wash programme option
(Programme Q). This programme allows a complete washing cycle to be
carried out in approximately 32 minutes, with a maximum load of 2kg and is
recommended for lightly soiled items. When selecting the programme, please
note that we recommend you use only 20% of the recommended quantities
shown on the detergent pack. Do not use fabric conditioner with this
programme.
17

Main wash
Auto half load
The washing machine is fitted with a self adjusting water level system. This
system enables the machine to use the optimum 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.

Sorting the laundry
–
It is recommended you wash only items which are 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: follow the labelling on the garments.
Examples:
Laundry for hot wash
Coloured, easy-care materials
Delicates and wool
–
Items labelled with the following symbols are not suitable for machine
washing:
Wash by hand
–
–
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 if they are to
be washed in the machine, and must also be labelled “non-matting” or
“machine washable”. Please check the laundry item for the label.
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, non colourfast items can only be washed with white
laundry up to 40°C.
Do not wash
19
40000693.qxd
13/11/2003
16:45
Page 20
Note: when sorting laundry
– check there are no metal
objects in the laundry (such as
paper clips, safety pins, pins,
coins etc...); In the event of a
machine failure during the
warranty period and foreign
objects are found to be the
cause of the failure a labour
charge may be made for the
call out of an engineer.
– 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 do not recommend washing a full load of just towelling items as they
absorb a lot of water and may become too heavy for the drum.
The correct way to wash
Preparing the laundry
A) Select and sort the laundry according to the wash care labels found on each
garment. Always check the care labels.
Loading the laundry
B) Open the door.
C) Put the laundry in the washing machine. Close the door again, ensuring that
no items of laundry are obstructing the lock or door seal.

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
Clean the compartments occasionally to remove detergents and additives.
A) To do this you just need to pull the drawer
out firmly from the machine, but
without forcing it.
B) Clean the compartments and the
syphon cap under running water.
C) Replace the drawer.
Cleaning the filter
The washing machine is fitted with a
special filter to prevent items such as
coins, buttons, etc. blocking the
discharge hose. These may be retrieved
by:
1. Removing the kickplate by gently
pulling it from the bottom in an
outwards and upwards direction.
2. Use the kickplate to collect the
water still in the filter.
3. Use a screwdriver to loosen the
screw holding the filter, turn the
filter anticlockwise until it stops,
remove it and clean it.
After cleaning it, reassemble following
the above instructions in reverse order.
Replace the kickplate.
We recommend that the filter be cleaned
frequently, at least once a month.

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 or storing the
appliance for 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 all hoses.
Ensure mains power plug is disconnected, then
unclip the discharge hose and lower it into a
basin on the floor until all the water has emptied
out.
When transporting the appliance refit the transit
bracket, central screw and side screws.

consumption.
Note:
The use of environmentally-friendly, phosphate-free detergents (check detergent
information on pack) can have the following effects:
– waste water from rinsing may be cloudier because of the presence of a white
powder (zeolites) held in suspension, without the rinse performance being
adversely affected;
– presence of white powder 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.
– Carrying out more rinse cycles does not serve any purpose in such cases.

Power failure
If there is a power failure the wash cycle will be interrupted, the wash programme
and functions will be suspended.
When the power is restored, the wash programme and functions will re-start from
the same point and complete the programme.
The load can be removed from the machine during a power failure as follows:
The water can be drained from the machine by:
1. Switch off the machine both via the on/off button and on the mains power
supply. Remove the plug from the mains power supply socket.
2. Carefully move the machine so the rear of the machine is accessible. Please
follow the safety precautions which we recommend under the ‘safety notes’
section of this manual.
3. Unclip the drain hose from the rear panel of the machine and lower the hose
into a bowl on the floor.
Important: the water may be very hot!
When the bowl is full raise the end of the drain pipe to a height higher than the
top of the appliance to stop the flow of water. Empty and replace the bowl and
continue draining the machine until empty.
4. Once the machine is fully drained of water, clip the hose to the rear of the
machine. Open the door and remove the load.
The door can be opened approximately 2 minutes after the power failure. Do not
force open the door.
Important: the water and the load may be very hot!
