Thanks to the new electronic system, acting on the button is possible to effect a new special
rinse cycle. The addition of a lot of more water and the new action combined of cycles of
rotation of the drum with load and unloading of water, allow to get laundry perfectly rinsed.
This function has been studied for the people with delicate and sensitive skin, for which also a
least residue of detergent can cause irritations or allergies.
It advises to also use this function for the children items and in case of washings of very dirty
items, for which it is due to use a lot of detergent, or in the washing of towelling items whose
fibers mostly have the tendency to hold the detergent.
This button is not available in the Wool/Hand wash programmes.

15
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 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.
COTTON DRYING
Drying for cotton, terry towelling, linen, hemp fabrics, etc...
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.
MIXED DRYING
Drying for Mixed fabrics (synthetics/cotton), synthetic fabrics.
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.
“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 “COTTON RINSES” PROGRAMME
This programme carries out 3 rinses with a maximum spin. It can be used
for rinsing any type of fabric, eg. use after hand-washing.
This program can be also used as cycle of Bleaching (see table of
washing cycle programmes).
“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…) NON-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.
Automatic Variable Capacity
The washing machine is fitted with an automatic reduction in consumption system (known as
Automatic Variable Capacity).
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 in the amount of water used and electricity needed to heat it to the
minimum required, 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 amount of
washing.
The washing machine therefore ensures you achieve excellent washing results whilst
respecting the environment and saving you money.
SPECIAL “MIXED RINSES” PROGRAMME
This programme carries out three rinses with a intermediate spin.
SPECIAL “FAST SPIN” PROGRAMME
Programme “FAST SPIN” carries out a maximum spin.
DRAIN ONLY
This programme drains out the water.

Detergent drawer
Detergents, washing aids and amounts to use
The detergent drawer is split into 3 compartments:
Choice of detergent
General purpose detergents
- the compartment labelled "I" is for prewash detergent;
-
- the compartment labelled " " is for special additives,
fabric softeners, fragrances, starch, brighteners etc;
-
- the compartment labelled "II" is for main wash
detergent.
If liquid detergents are used, please insert the special
container supplied into the compartment marked “II” in the
detergent drawer. This ensures that the liquid detergent
enters the drum at the right stage of the wash cycle.
This special container must be inserted into the
compartment marked "II" in the detergent drawer, also
when you wish to use the "RINSE" programme as
BLEACHING cycle.
NOTE:
Some Detergents are Difficult to
utilise. Ensure to use an in drum
dispenser if recommended by
the detergent Manufacturer.
-
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.
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.
18
19
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 “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.
20
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.
Before using a drying programme...
SAVE energy and time by selecting a high spin speed to reduce the water content in laundry
before using a drying programme.
21
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

Items labelled with the following symbol are not suitable for machine washing:
Selecting the wash programme
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.
Make sure the drying control knob is on “ ”, or else the programme will carry on till
drying is completed.
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
-
The correct way to wash
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

establish the degree of dryness required. We recommend not to dry fabrics that fray easily,
such as rugs or garments with a deep pile, to avoid air duct clogging.
The water is then conveyed to the drain circuit, wich is sealed and therefore, no steam can
be released outside.
Important
Never open the door after the drying cycle has begun wait until the cool down period provided for by the
cycle.
- If you would like your fabrics cupboard dry, turn the “drying programme selector” knob until
the
position.
- If you would like your fabrics iron dry, turn the “drying programme selector” knob, until
the
position.
- If you wish to select a timed drying cycle, turn the “drying programme selector” knob until
the Timed position 120 or 60 or 30.
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.
The washer-dryer will then complete the entire drying programme.
Only dry pre-spun laundry
The washer/dryer can perform two types of drying:
1 Cotton, terry towelling, linen, hemp fabrics, etc...
2 Mixed fabrics (synthetics/cotton), synthetic fabrics

Drying cycle
The correct way to dry:
- Open door.
- Fill with up to 3 kg - in case of large items (e.g. sheets) or very absorbent items (e.g.
towels or jeans), it is a good idea to reduce the load.
- Close door.
- Turn programme dial to
cotton.
- If you would like your fabrics cupboard dry, turn the “drying programme selector” knob until
the
position.
- If you would like your fabrics iron dry, turn the “drying programme selector” knob, until
the
position.
- If you wish to select a timed drying cycle, turn the “drying programme selector” knob until
the Timed position 120 or 60 or 30.
Warning: do not touch door for
any reason.
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 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 door glass
• Make sure water inlet valve is open.
• Make sure water drain is correctly positioned.
Warning:
do not dry woollen garments or articles with special padding,
(e.g. quilts, quilted anoraks, etc.).
Delicate fabrics if garments are drip/dry, load less items ao as to
prevent creasing.
Press the START button.
-The timed indicators will display the drying time remaining, until the stop indicator lights up.
-The drying phase will begin with the programme dial fixed on the
symbol until the
end of drying.
When the programme is finished
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.
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.
Turn the “drying programme selector” knob on the position.
Switch off the machine by turning the programme selector on the “OFF” position. Open the
door and remove the laundry. Turn off the tap.

Rearrange the laundry evenly.
7. Door will not open
Two minutes have not elapsed since the
programme finished.
Wait two minutes.
3. Water does not drain
away
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.

After Sales Service
The machine makes a
different noise when
spinning! This is because it
has a brush motor for better
performance.
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.
If, having investigated the possible malfunctions on the chart on the previous page, you
believe the appliance is not working correctly, please call our After Sales Service dept. on

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.
