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 maximum load size.
Save up to 50% energy by washing a full load instead of 2 half loads.
Quick Start
Note: Please ensure that Vision set-up, installation and
testing has been completed before referring to the
Quick Start.
Washing

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 normally 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.
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.

When using your new Hoover Vision for the first time
Your new Vision washing machine incorporates highly sophisticated Inter@ct technology
which always ensures the best performance is achieved automatically. The Vision display
panel is a good example of Inter@ct technology as you can always see in plain English what
the machine is doing both before a wash programme (when you are setting the various
programmes and options) and during a cycle (when the display lets you see the stage the
cycle has reached). In this way, the Vision panel Inter@cts with you and really does serve as
your personal Washing Advice Centre.
This machine will operate prior to programming the Vision set up. However, this machine has
Start Delay
and Programme End
functions and for these functions to work efficiently
the Vision set must be programmed. This is a simple operation and special care has been
taken during manufacture to ensure that the user can operate this machine simply and
effectively.

A DETAILED GUIDE AROUND YOUR VISION MENU:
Programming the machine
Vision needs to be programmed so that the correct clock setting, language and personal
requirements are set. When the machine is turned on and the programme dial is moved away
from the “STOP” position to the programme selections a welcome message will appear.
HOOVER VISION
WELCOME 11.06
This message is displayed for a short time while the machine recognises which programme
has been selected. When the machine is ready, the programme details will appear on the
display and from here you may now begin programming the machine.
Example
1 WHITE COTTON
90° HEAVY 1600 RPM
Enter the Menu
Prior to entering the Vision menu please note you have 30 seconds per operation to make
your selection. Should you run out of time the display will return to the start screen, and you
simply have to re-enter the Vision menu to continue with the programming.
From this stage the menu can be programmed. Hold down the “Timer saver”
and the
“Extra Rinse”
buttons together for 5 seconds or until the beep sounds.
The menu options can be changed by pressing the “Extra Rinse” button
.
To confirm and enter an option press the “Timer saver” button
.
Setting the language
Your washing machine is automatically set to French.
Press the “Extra rinse” button
to change the language.
(default setting - FRENCH)
Press the “Timer saver” button
to enter your selection.
When you have entered your chosen language, the display will then ask for the “Time-mode”
to be set.
Setting the time mode
(default setting - ABSOLUTE)
There are two ways to select the time mode.
The first is if you wish programme end or delay start to be programmed by starting the actual
time you want the programme to end or begin, e.g., programme to end 18.00. This is called
Absolute Time Mode.
When utilising the programme end function (or start delay), an example can be seen below
when the Absolute Time Mode has been selected in the menu set-up stage.
PROGRAMME END
AT 18.00
14:00
14
This is the time of
day.
Therefore, when setting the Programme end time the programme (as shown above) will end
at 18.00.
The second way is if you wish programme end time or delay start to be programmed by
adding hours; e.g., programme to end in 1 1/2 hours. This is called Relative Time Mode.
When utilising the programme end function (or start delay), an example can be seen below
when the Relative Time Mode has been selected in the menu set-up stage.
PROGRAMME END
BY 1H 30M
14:00
Therefore, when setting the Programme end time the programme (as shown above) will end
at 15:30. (1h 30m after the current time, which is 14.00)
Both options are very useful, but we feel that the Absolute Time Mode will be more beneficial
and easier to use since there will be no need to calculate how many hours you will need to
leave before you want the machine to end or start.
On reaching the set time mode you will be asked if you would like to select “Relative” time or by scrolling through using the “Extra Rinse” button
- “Absolute” time.
Enter the preferred setting by pressing the “Timer saver” button
.
When you have entered your preferred time-mode, the display will then ask for the Enable
Final Beeping to be set.
Enable Final Beeping
(default setting - YES)
Here you have the option to have a beeping alarm to let you know the wash cycle has finished.
By pressing the “Extra Rinse” button
you can scroll through the “yes” and “no” options.
To enter your selection press the “Timer saver” button
and the screen will then move to
the next stage and ask you to “Set New Time”
Set New Time
This function needs to be set for two reasons: firstly to display the current time of day on the
screen and secondly for the programme end/delay start settings to work correctly.
You will notice in the display window that the hours on the clock will be flashing.
Set the hours by continually pressing the “Extra Rinse” button
and then press the “Timer
saver” button
to input the hour of day.
Next the minutes on the clock will begin to flash, again press the “Extra rinse” button
until
the required minutes are displayed and press “Timer saver”
to input the selection.
When you have Set the New Time, the display will then ask if you wish to “Enable Memory”.
Enable Memory
(default setting - NO)
This is a useful feature if you frequently wash laundry using the same programme.
Selecting “Enable Memory” will tell the machine to remember the last programme/functions
used and set them in the memory. This function works only on cottons, delicates, synthetics
and woollens programme (1÷23). The memory does not retain settings within the special
programme group.
Select “Yes” or “No” to this option by using the “Extra Rinse”
and “Timer saver”
button
to input the selection.
The display will then shown a message that asks if you require demo mode to be set.
15
Demo mode
(default setting - NO)
Please set this option to “No” if not done so already - as this is for SERVICE use only.
If the demo mode option is set to “YES” when exiting the Vision menu the wash programme
WILL NOT commence. Demo Mode must be set at “NO” for the wash cycle to commence.
On entering “No” via the “Timer saver” button
you will then be asked if you wish to “Exit
Menu”.
Exit Menu
If you are happy with the settings you have selected, you can now exit the menu by selecting
“Yes” via the “Extra Rinse”
and “Timer saver” button
to input the selection.
However, if you are not happy with any of the settings selected you must select “No” to the
exit menu command and you can then commence the programming from the beginning.
By pressing the “Timer saver” button
you are able to enter and bypass each option
individually until you reach the option you would like to re-set.
When you are completely satisfied with your menu selection, you may exit the menu and
testing of the installation may now commence.
If, after the initial installation you may want to change any of the menu at a later date, again
run through the menu options from the beginning and change the options you want to reset.
This may be useful to change the “Set New Time” when the clocks go forward or back.
Once set, the menu options will remain in the memory of the machine even if the machine is
unplugged or if a power cut occurs.
Description of controls
All of the buttons and dials on the washing machine control panel are listed below.
When you have selected the desired programme and any option buttons, the information you
have selected will appear on the screen in the Vision Inter@ct display panel.
When programmes and option buttons are compatible a bleeping sound will be heard and the
light above the option button selected remain illuminated. If you select an option button that is
not compatible with the programme you require, a buzzing sound will be heard and the button
light will not illuminate. To select an option button press it once in the lower side; to deselect
an option button, press it again.
Carefully read the relevant descriptions detailed below:

The Vision panel will after a short delay display the time to complete the programme and then
the wash cycle will commence. Vision calculates the time to the end of the selected
programme based upon a standard 5 kg load. During the cycle, Vision corrects the time to
that applicable to the size and composition of the load.
Example
Door open: A special safety device prevents the door from being opened immediately
after the end of the cycle. “Door locked” indicator light
is illuminated when the door is
fully closed. Wait for 2 minutes after the wash cycle has finished before opening the door.
The door locked neon will go out and the door may be opened. As a safety measure check
that there is no water evident in the drum.

D
BIG WASH LOAD button
Hoover has designed a special wash boost system specially for big loads - by selecting this
button, (available on programmes 1 ÷ 11) the volume of water within the selected wash cycle
is increased and the length of time of the programme is extended to improve the wash
performance for the bigger load.
E
TIMER SAVER button
This option can be utilised on cotton and synthetic programmes (1 ÷ 17). By selecting the
Timer saver option, the wash time may be reduced by up to 50 minutes, depending on the
programme selected.
Example

Example
PROGRAMME CANCELLED
F
PRE-WASH button
This option (available on programmes 1÷17) is particularly useful for heavily soiled loads and
can be used before selecting the main wash programme. Detergent for this programme
should be added to the first compartment of the soap drawer labelled “I” (Please refer to
Detergent Drawer Section of manual). We recommend you use only 20% of the
recommended quantities shown on the detergent pack and fabric conditioner should not be
used for this programme.
G
EXTRA RINSE button
Note
After cancelling a programme it’s possible to drain the water from the
drum using the spin programme N° 29.
This option (not available for wool programmes) adds more water at the rinsing stage. This
can help prevent skin irritation from detergent residue for people with particularly sensitive
skin. Selecting the “Extra Rinse” button
is also recommended when washing heavily
soiled fabrics which need a lot of detergent, or when the wash load contains towelling fabrics
that have a greater tendency to retain detergent.
18
19
SELECT SPIN button
H
On selecting the wash programme the display will inform you of the maximum
spin speed permitted for that programme. By repeatedly pressing the select spin button the
speed will decrease by increments of 100 rpm. The minimum speed permitted is 400 rpm, or
by continuously pressing the select spin option the spin may be cancelled if desired.
On selecting the required spin speed the display will then inform you of the chosen
programme, its temperature and the newly selected spin speed.
The machine makes a different noise when spinning! This is
because it has a manifold motor for better performance.
M
This option is available on Resistant, Synthetics, Delicates, Woollens and some
Special Programmes (excluding programmes 26-29). When this option is selected for
Resistant, Delicates, Woollens or Handwash programmes the machine will stop and the load
will be held within the water in the drum.
This reduces the creasing thus enabling easier ironing. To continue with the wash cycle the
Fast Iron button
must be pressed and the programme will re-start. With the Fast Iron
option
selected within the synthetics cycle the programme is completed by a short, very
low speed spin. The laundry may be left in the drum in this condition without the risk of
excessive creasing. If a fuller spin cycle is required select the appropriate spin (see
Programme Guide) and then remove the laundry on completion of the programme.
I
CHILD LOCK button
This is a useful feature to prevent children playing with the option buttons and tampering
with the programme you have set.
After you have set the programme and option buttons you require, press start
and then Child Lock
. This “locks” the control panel.
You may cancel this function by pressing the child lock button
briefly until you see the
light above the button flash. While this light is flashing, press the “Fast Iron” button
– the
display will inform you that the options are no longer locked and further changes can now be
made.
DELAY START
FAST IRON Button
/SET END TIME
L
The programme end time/delay start options can be used if you want the washing to be ready
at a later time (but within 24 hours).
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.
NOTE: After selected the programme END TIME/DELAY START press the start button.
1. DELAY START
After selecting the programme, press delay start/set end time button once and press the
hours and minutes buttons (to the left and right) until the required time is set. The display
returns to the programme option if the button is pressed within 5 seconds.
To cancel delay start, hold down the button for 5 seconds.
It is unlikely that water will be visible in the drum!
This is due to the latest technology that achieves the
same standard of washing and rinsing but with far less
water consumption.
2. SET END TIME
Press delay start/set end time button twice and press the hours and minutes buttons (to the
left and right) until the required time is set. When entering the programme end option, the
display will show the minimum time which you can set the programme to end by. This time
may only be extended as you require.
NOTE: When using the delay start/set end time functions, only use detergents and laundry
also via the dispenser drawer. Adding detergents etc. to the drum and then leaving them to
stand for long period of time may damage your laundry.

Detergent drawer
N
The detergent drawer is divided into 3 compartments:
– the first, labelled «I», is for detergent utilised during
Prewash
– the second, labelled «II», is for detergent for main
wash
Note: Some detergents are difficult to remove. For
these, we recommend you use the special dispenser
which is placed in the drum.
– the third, labelled “
brighteners etc.
” is for special additives, fabric softeners, fragrances, starch,
Note: only put liquid products 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 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 through wash.
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
The machine is programmed to automatically take up additives during the final rinse stage for
all wash cycles.
– 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.
22
23
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.
Programme selector
The washing machine has 5 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 on page 30-31).
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.
The amounts shown on pack for detergents for washing delicates often already refer to a
reduced wash size.
Follow the dosage instructions!
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.
Wash and rinsing are carried out using a high water level to provide the best results.
Dosage for powder detergent
4. WOOLLENS
The programmes are designed for maximum washing at the temperature most suitable to
your woollen garments and their degree of soiling. Always read the wash advice label for the
most suitable temperature.
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 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.
5. SPECIAL PROGRAMMES - 29 minute Speed Wash, Handwash and Sportswear
30
SPORTSWEAR
The washing machine has a unique Sportswear programme (programme 24). 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 starts with a cold prewash that breaks down and loosens any excess dirt
and then washes at a cool 30°C, rinses and spins slowly for the best care of your heavily
soiled, delicate garments.
Hoover has given sports items their own wash care programme.
HAND WASH
This washing machine also has a gentle Hand Wash programme cycle (programme 25). This
programme allows a complete washing cycle for garments specified as “Hand Wash only” on
the fabric care label. The programme has a maximum temperature of 30° C and concludes
with 2 rinses, one for fabric conditioner and a slow spin.
R
SPEED WASH
This washing machine also has a SPEED WASH programme option (Programme 26). This
programme allows a complete washing cycle to be carried out in approximately 29 minutes,
with a maximum load of 2 kg and is recommended for lightly soiled items. When selecting the
Speed Wash programme, please note that we recommend you use only 20% of the
recommended quantities shown on the detergent pack.

Main wash
Auto Half Load
The washing machine is fitted with a self adjusting water level system.
This system enables the machine to use only the right 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 in the garments.
Laundry for hot wash 95
WHISPER
With Vision,Hoover has made a technology breahthrough by featuring the “WHISPER”
system for extra-quiet washing.
The mission of the New Vision featuring WHISPER is to improve your quality of life.
A number of very important modifications have been introduced to develop WHISPER:
7 sound absorbing panels on the sides of the machine, a sheet of corrugated material on the
bottom, complete soundproofing of the motor, tub made of sound absorbing material
(Silitech).
WHISPER means greater efficiency than other similar, non-soundproofed machines.

Wash by hand
– Items labelled with the following symbols are not suitable for machine washing:
Dry clean P
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 white laundry up to 40°C.
A technical analysis of the European market reveals that the new Hoover Vision featuring
WHISPER is among the quietest available.

Selecting the wash programme
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 to call out 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.
Refer to the programme guide or the programme descriptions on the front of the machine to
select the most suitable programme.
The programme is selected by turning the programme selector clockwise and aligning the
programme number with the indicator
.
Check that the tap is turned on and that the discharge hose is positioned correctly.
Press additional function buttons if you require.
Press the start button
. The door locked indicator illuminates and the programme will
begin.
When the programme has finished
– the door lock light is lit and the display will read “Door lock activated please wait to open”.
– the door lock light goes out (door lock released) and the display will read “Programme
complete unload the laundry”.
– Switch off the machine by turning the control knob to the off position.
– Open the door and remove the laundry.
Disconnect the plug from the mains power supply and turn off the water supply after every use.
– We recommend that you do not wash a full load of just towelling items as these can
become too heavy since they absorb a lot of water, possibly resulting in a load which is
out of balance (see page 21).
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.
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 23.
Add any other laundry aids (see page 23). Close the
drawer again.
Liquid detergents that are to be placed directly into the
drum should use the recommended dispensing device.

Points to consider: When washing heavily soiled laundry it is recommended the load is reduced
by about 1-1.5 kg. By doing so the laundry is allowed to circulate more freely.
** Energy label data based on programme 2 tested in accordance with EN60456.
* If the pre-wash button is pressed.

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 drawer compartments
Even if it is not strictly necessary, it is advisable 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.
Transporting/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 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.
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.
The cleaning operation is as follows:
1. Open the lid as shown in fig.
2. Turn the filter anticlockwise until it stops, remove it
and clean it.
3. After cleaning it, reassemble it following the previous
instructions in reverse order.
4. Close the lid.
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.
32
33
It is unlikely that water will be visible in the drum!
This is due to the latest technology that achieves the
same standard of washing and rinsing but with far less
water consumption.
Trouble shooting
What might be the cause of…
Defects you can remedy yourself
Before calling GIAS Service for technical advice please run through the following checklist. A
charge will be made if the machine is found to be working or has been installed incorrectly or
used incorrectly.If the problem persists after completing the recommended checks, please call
the GIAS Service, they may be able to assist you over the telephone.
PROBLEM
CAUSE
REMEDY
The machine makes a different noise when spinning! This is
because it has a manifold motor for better performance.
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.
