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/Silk programs.
At the end of the required time delay the programme will start.
To cancel the Delay Start function :
press the "Delay Start" button until the indicator lights will be off and the programme can be
started manually using the "Start/Pause" button or switch off the appliance by turning the
programme selector to "OFF" position.
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
According to the selected cycle automatically will shows if the programme’s spin is maximum
(MAX), intermediate (MED) or zero ( ). By pressing this button, it’s possible to reduce or cancel
the spin speed shown.
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.

RESISTANTS FABRICS
The programmes have been designed for a maximum wash and the
rinses, with spin intervals, ensure perfect rinsing.
The final spin gives more efficient removal of water.
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.
SPECIAL “RINSE” PROGRAMME
This programme carries out three rinses with a intermediate spin
(which can be 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).

WOOLMARK PROGRAMME
A programme dedicated to washing fabrics labelled with the woolmark .
The cycle comprises of alternate periods of activity and pauses. The
programme has a maximum temperature of 40° and concludes with 3
rinses and a short spin.
SPECIAL SILK PROGRAMME
This washing machine also has a gentle Silk and Hand Wash programme
cycle. This programme allows a complete washing cycle for garments
specified as ‘Hand Wash only’ and laundry items made from Silk on the
fabric label.
The programme has a maximum temperature of 30° and concludes with 3
rinses and no final spin.
AA SPECIAL PROGRAMME AT 40°C
This special programme has been studied to allow you to obtain the best
washing performance, even at full load, as the 60°C Cotton programme
(the normative cycle), but with the advantage of an energy saving due to
40°C temperature, instead of 60°C.
The length of this programme lasts almost the 3 hours.
SPORTS
Hoover has given sports items their own wash care programme.
The washing machine has a unique Sportswear programme. It is specially
designed to wash mixed sportswear fabrics that cannot be washed on
hotter programmes and is designed to remove the soil and staining created
by participation in sports activities. This programme washes at a cool 30°C,
rinses and spins slowly for the best care of your heavily soiled, delicate
garments.
“A” WASH 59 '
This specially designed programme maintains the high quality wash
performance identified with the “A”
rating whilst greatly reducing the wash time. The progrramme is designed
for a maximum load of 3 kg with a temperature of 60°C and concludes with
2 rinses and a high speed spin sequence.
DRAIN ONLY
This programme drains out the water.

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.
DAILY WASH 30°C – FAST 29’
A complete washing cycle (wash, rinse and spin), able to wash in
approximately 29 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.
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
Dosages
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
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.

Useful advice for users
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
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?
Coloured, easy-care materials
Only with particularly dirty loads!
Energy savings of 5 to 15% are made by not selecting the prewash option for normal soiled
laundry.
Delicates and wool
Which wash temperature should you choose?
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.
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
Wash by hand
Items labelled with the following symbol are not suitable for machine washing:
-
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.

The correct way to wash
Cleaning and routine maintenance
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.
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
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.
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.
Selecting the wash programme
Cleaning the filter
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.
Wait that a “SPIN” indicator light will go on.
Press additional function buttons (if required).
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:
Check that the tap is turned on and that the discharge hose is positioned correctly.
1) Open the flap
Press the "Start/Pause" button.
When the "Start/Pause" button is pressed the machine sets the working sequence in motion.
2) Only available on certain models:
Pull out the corrugated hose, remove the stopper and
drain the water into a container.
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
At the end of the programme all the wash stage indicator lights will illuminate.
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
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.
Investigating malfunctions
What might be the cause of…
Defects you can remedy yourself
MALFUNCTION CAUSE
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.
1. Does not work on any
programme
Plug not in socket.
Not switched on.
Power failure.
Fuse blown.
Door open.
Plug it in.
Switch on.
Check.
Check.
Close door.
2. Does not fill with water
See cause 1.
Tap turned off.
Programme selector not correctly
positioned.
Fill hoses are kinked
Check.
Turn on tap.
Position programme selector
correctly.
Straighten fill hoses
3. Water does not drain
away
Kink in discharge hose.
Foreign bodies in filter
House drain is blocked
Straighten discharge hose.
Examine filter (see pages 23-24)
Clean drain
4. Water on floor around
the washing machine
Leaking gasket between tap and water
inlet hose.
House drain is blocked
Soap drawer blocked with soap residues
Replace gasket and tighten hose and
tap well.
Clean drain
Clean soap drawer
5. Does not spin
Water has not yet drained away.
Wait a few minutes for machine to empty.
"No spin" selected (certain models only). Reset button or turn "no spin" knob.
6. Machine vibrates a lot
during spin
Washing machine not completely level.
Transit brackets not removed yet.
Load not distributed evenly.
Adjust the special adjustable feet.
Remove transit brackets.
Rearrange the laundry evenly.
7. Door will not open
Two minutes have not elapsed since the
programme finished.
Wait two minutes.
The machine makes a
different noise when
spinning! This is because it
has a brush motor for better
performance.
24
REMEDY
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.
25
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.
