8) DRYING PROGRAMME INDICATORS
The indicators display the type of the drying programme:
The washer dryers incorporate an Automatic Sensor Drying function which takes the
guesswork out of setting the drying time. You simply select the degree of dryness you
require and the dryer automatically switches off when that level is reached. For added
flexibility there are 3 Sensor Drying levels to choose from:
= Extra dry programme
N
When the programme selector is turned
the display lights up to show the settings
for the programme selected.
N.B. To switch the machine off, turn the
programme selector to the “OFF”
position.
= Cupboard dry programme
= Iron dry programme
USEFUL TIPS:
Once the programme option has been selected, press the Start Pause button. The appliance
will then calculate the time to the end of the selected programme based upon a full dry load.
During the cycle the appliance will update the time to suit the actual load size and dampness
of the fabrics.
Timed programmes:
Alternatively you may select a pre-determined time for the drying cycle. The Timed Drying
programmes may be set to the following times:
120 minutes – 90 minutes – 60 minutes – 30 minutes:
Cool down phase
:
A 10 minute cool down phase occurs at the end of each drying cycle to ensure clothes are
not too hot to touch when the cycle finishes.
Today, most detergents have been improved to wash
efficiently at lower temperatures, therefore we have set the
default temperature settings of each programme to a lower
level, saving electricity and reducing the carbon footprint of
your machine. You can select an high temperature by
pressing the temperature button.
Please refer to the programme guide for the maximum
temperature to which each programme can be set.
Press the "Start/Pause" button to start the selected cycle.
Once a programme is selected the programme selector remains stationary on the selected
programme till cycle ends.
Switch off the washing machine by turning the selector to "OFF".
Note:
The programme selector must be returned to the "OFF" position
at the end of each cycle or when starting a subsequent wash
cycle prior to the next programme being selected and started.

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 lenght of cycle (see
table of washing cycle programmes).
COTTONS
The Cotton programme includes a Prewash cycle. This option is
particularly useful for really dirty loads and can be used independently of
the main wash programme. Additional detergent for the Prewash part of
the programme should be added to the first compartment of the soap
drawer labelled "1" (please refer to the section of this manual entitled
“Detergent”). We recommend you use only 20% of the quantity used for
the main wash programme.
The Cottons programme is also designed for maximum washing and
rinsing efficiency. With spin cycles in between, the programme guarantees
the laundry is rinsed perfectly. The final spin cycle ensures laundry is spun
dry as much as possible up to the maximum speed.
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 DELICATE FIBRES
This is a new wash cycle which alternates washing and soaking and is
particularly recommended for very delicate fabrics.
The wash cycle and rinses are carried out with high water levels to ensure
best results.
WOOLMARK PROGRAMME
The special cycle enables to thoroughly wash garments without
damaging them. 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 “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.
16
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.
This program can be also used as cycle of Bleaching (see table of washing
cycle programmes).
SPECIAL “SPIN” PROGRAMME
Programme “SPIN” carries out a maximum spin (which can be reduced by
using the correct button).
DRAIN ONLY
This programme drains out the water.
“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 basket that turns) to static phases (fabrics in soak
in phase of rest) with a duration programme that almost reaching the 2
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.
RAPID PROGRAMME
This programme is particularly suited to slightly dirty cottons and mixed
fabrics. Using the Stain Level button on the Rapid cycle will enable you to
select either a 14, 30 or 44 minute wash cycle.
When selecting the rapid programme, please note that we recommend you
use only 20% of the recommended quantities shown on the detergent
pack. For information about these programmes please refer to the programmes
table.
“SHIRTS” PROGRAMME
This programme allows a complete washing cycle for shirts.
The main wash and the rinse gives best results thanks to the rotation
rhythms of the drum and to the water levels.
The programme has a maximum temperature of 30°C and concludes with
3 rinses and a short spin.
17
DRYING
Note: Dispensers used for concentrated powders and liquid
detergents must be removed from the drum before commencing the
tumble drying programmes.
The drum changes direction during the drying cycle to prevent the laundry
from tangling and hence produce even drying. Cool air is used during the
last ten minutes of the drying cycle to minimise creasing.
LOW HEAT
Low temperature drying programme for synthetics and mixed fibres,
always refer to the care label.
Detergent drawer
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.
HIGH HEAT
High temperature drying programme for Cottons and linen items, always
refer to the care label
If liquid detergents are used, please insert the special
container supplied into the compartment marked “2” in
the detergent drawer. This ensures that the liquid
detergent enters the drum at the right stage of the wash
cycle.
WASH'N DRY 59’
When you only have a few items to wash and dry in a hurry, this 59 minute
cycle is the ideal time saver!
Suitable for a light 1.5kg load size (e.g. 4 shirts) or slightly dirty fabrics, this
cycle will wash, rinse, spin and dry your garments in under an hour.
We recommend that you reduce the detergent dosage when using this
programme to avoid wastage.
This special container must be inserted into the
compartment marked "2" in the detergent drawer, also
when you wish to use the "RINSE" programme as
BLEACHING cycle.
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.
18
P
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.
19
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.
20
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
Coloured, easy-care materials
Delicates and wool
When is prewashing really needed?
Wash by hand
Only with particularly dirty loads!
Energy savings of 5 to 15% are made by not selecting the prewash option for normal soiled
laundry.
Items labelled with the following symbol are not suitable for machine washing:
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
-
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.
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.
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
DRYING
Preparing the laundry
A) Select the laundry.
To minimize the risk of fire in a tumble dryer, the following should be observed:
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 20.
Add any other laundry aids (see page 20). Close the
drawer again.
Selecting the wash programme
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.
Adjust the wash temperature if necessary.
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.
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
The word “End” will appear on the display.
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.

● Items that have been spotted or soaked with vegetable or cooking oil constitute a fire
hazard and should not be placed in a tumble dryer.
● Oil-affected items can ignite spontaneously, especially when exposed to heat sources
such as in a tumble dryer. The items become warm, causing an oxidation reaction in the
oil. Oxidation creates heat. If the heat cannot escape, the items can become hot enough to
catch fire. Piling, stacking or storing oil affected items can prevent heat from escaping and
so create a fire hazard. If it is unavoidable that fabrics that contain vegetable or cooking oil
or have been contaminated by hair care products be placed in a tumble dryer they should
first be washed in hot water with extra detergent-this will reduce, but not eliminate, the
hazard. The 'cool down' cycle of tumble dryers should be used to reduce the temperature
of the items.
They should not be removed from the tumble dryer or piled or stacked while hot.
● Items that have been previously cleaned in, washed in, soaked in or spotted with
petrol/gasoline, dry-cleaning solvents or other flammable or explosive substances should
not be placed in a tumble dryer. Highly flammable substances commonly used in domestic
environments include acetone, denatured alcohol, petrol/gasoline, kerosene, spot
removers (some brands), turpentine, waxes and wax removers.
● Items containing foam rubber (also known as latex foam) or similarly textured rubber like
materials should not be dried in a tumble dryer on a heat setting.
Foam rubber materials can, when heated, produce fire by spontaneous combustion.
● Fabric softeners or similar products should not be used in a tumble dryer to eliminate the
effects of static electricity unless this practice is specifically recommended by the
manufacturer of the fabric softener or product.
● Undergarments that contain metal reinforcements should not be placed in a tumble
dryer. Damage to the tumble dryer can result if metal reinforcements come loose during
drying. When available a drying rack could be used for such items.
● Plastic articles such as shower caps or babies' waterproof napkin covers should not be
placed in a tumble dryer.
● Rubber-backed articles, clothes fitted with foam rubber pads, pillows, galoshes and
rubber-coated tennis shoes should not be placed in a tumble dryer.

Check that the tap is turned on and that the discharge hose is positioned correctly.
WARNING:
Indications given are general, therefore some practice is needed for the best drying results.
We recommend setting a lower drying time than indicated, when first using, so as to
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.
Only dry pre-spun laundry

assesses the weight and dampness of the laundry.
DOUBLE-SKIN DOOR
The appliance door is fitted with a protective shield to prevent
contact with the glass door which can reach high temperatures,
during the drying cycle.
It should not be necessary to remove the shield from the machine
during the normal course of use.
USEFUL TIPS:
Warning: do not touch door for any reason.
Do not dry unwashed items in the washer dryer.
• Make sure water inlet valve is open.
• Make sure water drain is correctly positioned.
Items that have been soiled with substances such as cooking oil, acetone, alcohol, petrol,
kerosene, spot removers, turpentine, waxes and wax removers should be washed in hot
water with an extra amount of detergent before being dried in the washer dryer.
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.

When the programme is finished
Items such as foam rubber (latex foam), shower caps, waterproof textiles, rubber backed
articles and clothes or pillows fitted with foam rubber pads should not be dried in the
washer dryer.
Fabric softeners, or similar products, should be used as specified by the fabric softener
instructions.
The final part of a washer dryer cycle occurs without heat (cool down cycle) to ensure that
the items are left at a temperature that ensures that the items will not be damaged.
WARNING:
Never stop a washer dryer before the end of the drying cycle unless all items are quickly
removed and spread out so that the heat is dissipated.
The word “End” will appear on the display.
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.

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.
Call service.
During drying phase the drum will accelerate to a higher speed to distribute the load
and to optimize the drying performance
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.
