D
Crease guard Button
The Crease Guard function (Not available on COTTON programmes) minimizes creases as
much as possible with a uniquely designed anti-crease system that is tailored to specific
fabrics.
MIXED FABRICS - the water is gradually cooled throughout the final two rinses with no
spinning and then a delicate spin assures the maximum relaxation of the fabrics.
DELICATE FABRICS – final two rinses with no spinning and then the fabrics are left in
water until it is time to unload. When you are ready to unload, press the "Crease Guard"
button – this will drain.
WOLLENS – after the final rinse the fabrics are left in water until it is time to unload and the
button indicator blinking.
When you are ready to unload, press the "Crease Guard" button, this will drain and spin
ready for emptying.
If you do not want to spin the clothes and activate drain only:
F
STAIN VANISH Button
By pressing this button, which can only be activated in the Cotton cycles, the sensors in the
new Activa system come into operation. They affect both the selected temperature, keeping
it at a constant level throughout the wash cycle, and the mechanical function of the drum.
The drum is made to turn at two different speeds at crucial moments. When the detergent
enters the garments, the drum rotates in such a way that the detergent is distributed in a
uniform manner; during the wash and rinse procedures, however, the speed increases in
order to maximise the cleaning action. Thanks to this special system, the efficiency of the
wash procedure is improved WITHOUT ANY INCREASE IN THE LENGTH OF THE
PROGRAM.
G
DELAY START button
Appliance start time can be set with this button, delaying the start by 3, 6 or 9 hours.
Proceed as follows to set a delayed start:
Select a programme (“STOP” indicator light blinks)
Press "Delay Start" button (each time the button is pressed the start will be delayed by 3, 6
or 9 hours respectively and the corresponding light will blink).
- Turn the programme selector to the "OFF" position;
- Select programme drain only
;
- Switch on the appliance again by pressing the "Start/Pause" button.
Press "Start/Pause" to commence the Delay Start operation (the indicator light associated
with the selected Delay Start time stops blinking and remains ON).
At the end of the required time delay the programme will start.
E
ALLERGY 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 Activa 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 programs.
8
To cancel the Delay Start function :
press the "Delay Start" button until the indicator lights will be off (The "STOP" light blinks)
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.

Programme selector
For the various types of fabrics and various degrees of dirt the washing machine has 4
different programme bands according to: wash cycle, temperature and length of cycle (see
table of washing cycle programmes).
1 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.
2 MIXED AND SYNTHETIC FABRICS
The main wash and rinse gives the 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.
3 SPECIAL DELICATE FIBRES
This is a new wash cycle which alternates washing and soaking and is
particularly recommended for very delicate fabrics such as Pure Machine
Washable Wool. The wash cycle and rinses are carried out with high water
levels to ensure best results.
SPECIAL “HAND WASH”
This washing machine also has a gentle Hand Wash programme cycle.
This programme allows a complete washing cycle for garments specified
as “Hand Wash only” on the fabric care label. The programme has a
temperature of 30°C and concludes with 3 rinses and a slow spin.
4. SPECIALS
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 “FAST SPIN” PROGRAMME
Programme “FAST SPIN” carries out a maximum spin (which can be
reduced by using the correct button).
DRAIN ONLY
This programme drains out the water.
14
“MIX & WASH SYSTEM” PROGRAMME
This is an exclusive Candy system and involves 2 great advantages for the
consumer:
• to be able to wash together different type of fabrics (e.g. cotton + synthetic
etc…) FAST COLOUREDS;
• to wash with a considerable energy saving.
The "Mix & Wash" programme has a temperature of 40°C and alternate
dynamic phases (the drum that turns) to static phases (fabrics in soak in
phase of rest) with the programme duration that almost reaching the 3 hours.
The energy consumption for the complete cycle is only 850 W/h.
Important:
• the first washing of new coloureds fabrics must be done separately;
• in every case, never mix NON-FAST COLOUREDS fabrics.
32 MINUTE RAPID PROGRAMME 50°C
The 32 minute rapid programme allows a complete washing cycle to be
carried out in approximately 30 minutes, with up to a maximum load of 2 kg
and a temperature of 50°C.
When selecting the "32 minute rapid" programme, please note that we
recommend you use only 20% of the recommended quantities shown on
the detergent pack.
FUZZY LOGIC
Through every wash phase Fuzzy Logic allows the Activa Smart to monitor information on
the wash load in the drum.
So, as soon as the Activa Smart is set in motion it:
• adjusts the amount of water required
• determines the length of the wash cycle
• controls rinsing
according to the type of fabric selected to be washed it:
• adjusts the rhythm of drum rotation for the type of fabric being washed
• recognises the presence of lather, increasing, if necessary, the amount of water during
rinsing
• adjusts the spin speed according to the load, thus avoiding any imbalance.
In this way the ACTIVA SMART is able to decide, by itself, the most suitable programme for
each individual wash from the hundreds of possible wash combinations.
Fuzzy Logic meets the need for easy use by permitting a simplified programme selection. In
fact, the user need only tell the machine the type of fabric in the drum (cotton, mixtures,
delicate or woollens) and the degree of soiling, to obtain a perfect wash with the highest
level of drying possible with a spin which really cares for your clothes.
15
Detergent drawer
Detergents, washing aids and amounts to use
P
The detergent drawer is split into 3 compartments:
Choice of detergent
General purpose detergents
- 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.
16
-
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.
17
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.
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?
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.
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
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.

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
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 17.
Add any other laundry aids (see page 17). Close the
drawer again.
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.
-
-
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 for the “STOP” indicator light to flash.
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.
Note: when sorting laundry
-
Selecting the wash programme
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.
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
- 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.
At the end of the programme the indicator light “STOP” will go on.
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.

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
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.
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 the filter and lock by tightening
the filter screw. Then follow all procedures described
above in reverse order.

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.
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.
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

Note: we recommend you keep the transit bracket,
braces and 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
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.
Electricity supply and safety advice
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.
Washing machines are supplied to operate at a voltage of 230-240V, 50 Hz single-phase.
Check that the conductor is powerful enough to supply at least 3.0 kW, then connect the plug
to a 10A earthed socket.
After installation,the appliance must be positioned so that the plug is accessible.
Check that the electricity supply to your home has an earthing system.
The socket in your home and the plug on the appliance must be of the same type.
It is generally not advisable to use multiple adapters and/or extension leads.
All Candy washing machines comply with the safety requirements laid down by the Quality
Trademark Institute.
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.
