Installation
GB
! Keep this instruction manual in a safe place for
future reference. Should the appliance be sold, transferred or moved, make sure the instruction manual
accompanies the washing machine to inform the
new owner as to its operation and features.
! Read these instructions carefully: they contain
vital information on installation, use and safety.
Unpacking and levelling
Unpacking
1. Unpack the washing machine.
2. Check whether the washing machine has
been damaged during transport. If this is the
case, do not install it and contact your retailer.
3. Remove the 4 protective screws and the
rubber bush with the
respective spacer, situated on the rear of the
appliance (see also the
installation leaflet).
4. Seal the gaps using the plastic plugs provided.
5. Keep all the parts: you will need them again
if the washing machine needs to be moved to
another location.
! Packaging materials are not children’s toys.
Levelling
Your machine may make a considerable amount
of noise if the two front feet have not been adjusted correctly.
1. Install the washing machine on a flat sturdy
floor, without resting it up against walls, furniture
cabinets or other.
2. If the floor is not perfectly level, compensate
for any unevenness by
tightening or loosening
the adjustable front feet
(see figure); the angle
of inclination, measured according to the
worktop, must not exceed 2°.
Levelling your appliance
correctly will provide it with stability and avoid any
2
vibrations, noise and shifting during operation. If
it is placed on a fitted or loose carpet, adjust the
feet in such a way as to allow enough room for
ventilation beneath the washing machine.
Electric and water connections
Connecting the water inlet hose
1. Connect the supply
pipe by screwing it to
a cold water tap using
a 3/4 gas threaded
connection (see figure).
Before performing the
connection, allow the
water to run freely until
it is perfectly clear.
2. Connect the other
end of the water inlet
hose to the washing
machine, screwing it
onto the appliance’s
cold water inlet, situated
on the top right-hand
side on the rear of the
appliance (see figure).
3. Make sure there are no kinks or bends in the
hose.
! The water pressure at the tap must be within
the values indicated in the Technical details
table (on the page 5).
! If the water inlet hose is not long enough,
contact a specialist store or an authorised
serviceman.
! Ensure that the supply taps are allowing water through. Old taps may seize in the closed
position and thus prevent water reaching the
machine.
Connecting the drain hose
65 - 100 cm
Where it connects to
the waste water pipe
cut end off spigot or
remove the blanking cap
Connect the drain
hose, without bending
it, to a draining duct or
a wall drain situated
between 65 and 100
cm from the floor;
The drain hose may
be connected to an
under-sink trap. Before connecting the
drain hose from the
machine ensure that
any blanks or removable ends have been
taken off the spigot.
If it is placed over the
edge of a basin or sink
be sure the free end of
the hose should not
be underwater.
! We advise against the use of hose extensions; in
case of absolute need, the extension must have the
same diameter as the original hose and must not
exceed 150 cm in length. Ensure that if the drain
hose is pushed into a standpipe, that the end does
not go down more than 15cms (6 inches). If the hose
is pushed down too far, this may cause the machine
to self -syphon ie. continuously empty as it is filling.
Electric connection
Before plugging the appliance into the mains
socket, make sure that:
• the socket is earthed and in compliance with
the applicable law;
• the socket is able to sustain the appliance’s
maximum power load indicated on the Technical
Data Plate fixed on the machine;
• the supply voltage is included within the values
indicated on the Technical Data Plate fixed on
the machine.
• the socket is compatible with the washing
machine’s plug. If this is not the case, replace
the socket or the plug.
Your appliance is now supplied with a 13 amp fused plug it can be plugged into a 13 amp socket
for immediate use. Before using the appliance
please read the instructions below.
WARNING - THIS APPLIANCE MUST BE EARTHED.
THE FOLLOWING OPERATIONS SHOULD BE
CARRIED OUT BY A QUALIFIED ELECTRICIAN.
Replacing the fuse:
When replacing a faulty fuse, a 13 amp ASTA
approved fuse to BS 1362 should always be
used, and the fuse cover re-fitted. If the fuse
cover is lost, the plug must not be used until a
replacement is obtained.
Replacement fuse covers:
If a replacement fuse cover is fitted, it must be of
the correct colour as indicated by the coloured
marking or the colour that is embossed in words
on the base of the plug. Replacements can be
obtained directly from your nearest Service Depot.
Removing the plug:
If your appliance has a non-rewireable moulded
plug and you should wish to re-route the mains
cable through partitions, units etc., please ensure that either:
the plug is replaced by a fused 13 ampere rewireable plug bearing the BSI mark of approval.
or:
the mains cable is wired directly into a 13 amp
cable outlet, controlled by a switch, (in compliance with BS 5733) which is accessible without
moving the appliance.
Disposing of the plug:
Ensure that before disposing of the plug itself,
you make the pins unusable so that it cannot be
accidentally inserted into a socket.
Instructions for connecting cable to an alternative plug:
Important: the wires in the mains lead are coloured in accordance with the following code:

Care and maintenance
GB
Cutting off the water and electricity supplies
• Turn off the water tap after every wash cycle.
This will limit wear on the hydraulic system
inside the washing machine and help to prevent leaks.
• Unplug the washing machine when cleaning
it and during all maintenance work.
2. unscrew the lid
by rotating it anticlockwise (see figure): a little water may
trickle out. This is
perfectly normal;
Cleaning the washing machine
The outer parts and rubber components of the
appliance can be cleaned using a soft cloth
soaked in lukewarm soapy water. Do not use
solvents or abrasives.
Cleaning the detergent dispenser
drawer
Remove the dispenser
by raising it and pulling it out (see figure).
Wash it under running
water; this operation
should be repeated
frequently.
3. clean the inside thoroughly;
4. screw the lid back on;
5. reposition the panel, making sure the hooks
are securely in place before you push it onto
the appliance.
Checking the water inlet hose
Check the inlet hose at least once a year. If
there are any cracks, it should be replaced
immediately: during the wash cycles, water
pressure is very strong and a cracked hose
could easily split open.
! Never use second-hand hoses.
Caring for the door and drum of
your appliance
• Always leave the porthole door ajar in order
to prevent unpleasant odours from forming.
Cleaning the pump
The washing machine is fitted with a self-cleaning pump which does not require any maintenance. Sometimes, small items (such as
coins or buttons) may fall into the pre-chamber
which protects the pump, situated in its bottom part.
! Make sure the wash cycle has finished and
unplug the appliance.
To access the prechamber:
1. using a screwdriver, remove the cover
panel on the lower
front part of the washing machine (see
figure);

The length of cycle shown in this booklet is an estimation only and is calculated assuming standard working conditions. The actual duration can vary
according to factors such as water temperature and pressure, the amount of detergent used, the amount and type of load inserted, load balancing
and any wash options selected.
1) Test wash cycle in compliance with directive 1061/2010: set wash cycle 2 with a temperature of 60°C.
This cycle is designed for cotton loads with a normal soil level and is the most efficient in terms of both electricity and water consumption; it should be
used for garments which can be washed at 60°C. The actual washing temperature may differ from the indicated value.
2) Test wash cycle in compliance with directive 1061/2010: set wash cycle 3 with a temperature of 40°C.
This cycle is designed for cotton loads with a normal soil level and is the most efficient in terms of both electricity and water consumption; it should be
used for garments which can be washed at 40°C. The actual washing temperature may differ from the indicated value.
For all Test Institutes:
2) Long wash cycle for cottons: set wash cycle 3 with a temperature of 40°C.
3) Synthetic program along: set wash cycle 5 with a temperature of 40°C.
Cotton Standard (programme 6) ideal for lightly soiled cotton loads. The effective performance levels achieved at cold
temperatures, which are comparable to washing at 40°, are guaranteed by a mechanical action which operates at varying
speed, with repeated and frequent peaks.
Express 15’ (wash cycle 10) this wash cycle was designed to wash lightly soiled garments quickly: it lasts just 15 minutes and
therefore saves both energy and time. By selecting this wash cycle (10 at 30°C), it is possible to wash different fabrics together
(except for wool and silk items), with a maximum load of 1.5 kg.
Sport Intensive (wash cycle 12) is for washing heavily soiled sports clothing fabrics (tracksuits, shorts, etc.); for best results,
we recommend not exceeding the maximum load indicated in the “Table of wash cycles”.
Sport Light (wash cycle 13) is for washing lightly soiled sports clothing fabrics (tracksuits, shorts, etc.); for best results, we
recommend not exceeding the maximum load indicated in the “Table of wash cycles”. We recommend using a liquid detergent
and dosage suitable for a half-load.
Special Shoes (wash cycle 14) is for washing sports shoes; for best results, do not wash more than 2 pairs simultaneously.

cotton and synthetic fabrics (refer to the ““Table of wash cycles”). “
” enables you to wash in less time thereby saving
water and electricity. We suggest using a liquid detergent suitably measured out to the load quantity.
! This function may not be used in conjunction with wash cycles 1, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14,
,
.
Intensive Wash
Because a greater quantity of water is used in the initial phase of the cycle, and because of the increased cycle duration, this
function offers a high-performance wash.
! This function may not be used in conjunction with wash cycles 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14,
.
Extra Rinse
By selecting this option, the efficiency of the rinse is increased and optimal detergent removal is guaranteed. It is particularly
useful for sensitive skin.

Open the detergent dispenser drawer and pour
in the detergent or washing
additive, as follows.
! Do not pour detergent into the compartment 1.
Detergent should only be poured into the compartment 2.
compartment 2: Detergent for the wash cycle
(powder or liquid)
Liquid detergent should only be poured in immediately
prior to the start of the wash cycle.
compartment 3: Additives (fabric softeners, etc.)
The fabric softener should not overflow the grid.
Preparing the laundry
• Divide the laundry according to:
- the type of fabric/the symbol on the label
- the colours: separate coloured garments from whites.
• Empty all garment pockets and check the buttons.
• Do not exceed the values listed in the “Table of wash
cycles”, which refer to the weight of the laundry when
dry.
How much does your laundry weigh?
1 sheet 400-500 g
1 pillow case 150-200 g
1 tablecloth 400-500 g
1 bathrobe 900-1200 g
1 towel 150-250 g

Before every spin cycle, to avoid excessive vibrations and
to distribute the load in a uniform manner, the drum rotates
continuously at a speed which is slightly greater than the
washing rotation speed. If, after several attempts, the load
is not balanced correctly, the machine spins at a reduced
spin speed. If the load is excessively unbalanced, the
washing machine performs the distribution process instead
of spinning. To encourage improved load distribution and
balance, we recommend small and large garments are
mixed in the load.

• The drain hose is connected incorrectly to the sink trap allowing water to run
into the machine, the drain hose must be positioned higher than the bottom of
the sink to prevent water flowing down the drain hose.
• The end of the drain hose has been pushed too far down the standpipe, the
‘U’ bracket should be fitted 100 mm from the end of the drain hose.
The machine does not drain or
spin.
• The Pump filter is blocked.
• The drain hose is kinked (see “Installation”).
• New Installation - The blanking cap or spigot has not been removed if
connected under a sink.
• The drain hose or sink trap is blocked.
• The wash cycle does not include draining, some wash cycles require the drain
phase to be started manually.
• The ‘Spin Speed’ selector knob is in the “ “position.
The machine does not heat or poor
wash results.
• The ‘Temperature’ selector knob is in the “ ” position.
The programme takes too long.
• Programme times will vary due to water pressure, the incoming water temperature and if the wash load goes out of balance. This will increase the programme
times accordingly (see ‘ The machine wont spin properly’ below).
The machine vibrates a lot during
the spin cycle.
• The feet have not been adjusted, enabling the machine to rock.
• New Installation - Either the Transit Bolts including the plastic spacers, or the
Polystyrene Packaging have not been removed when installing the machine.
• The machine is trapped between cabinets and/or walls.

a lower speed.

The machine is noisy.
• There will always be some motor, pump and drum noise during spin.
The machine wont spin properly.
• Out of Balance detected when attempting to go into a spin cycle - If this
happens the machine will continue to try to repeat the distribution of the load
required before the machine will go into higher spin speeds - This will increase
the programme time accordingly. This is a safety feature to prevent damage.
Out of Balance can be caused by washing a single heavy item (eg duvet, quilt,
etc). - Try the programme again using a different load.
The machine leaks from the
dispenser.
• The dispenser drawer is blocked with detergent and requires cleaning.
• The water pressure is too high and requires turning down - turn down the tap
on the water supply pipe slightly and try again.
• The machine is tilting forwards - It must be level when in its final position.
The machine leaks (other than
dispenser).
• The fill hose is loose, check both the cabinet and tap ends.
• The fill hose is tight but still leaks, if so replace the rubber washers, or the fill
hose is missing the rubber washer.
• The drain hose is not fixed in properly.
The indicator lights on the console
are flashing rapidly.
• Switch off the machine and unplug it, wait for approximately 1 minute and then
switch it back on again If the problem persists contact the Technical Assistance
Service.
The machine smells.
• The machine requires a service wash. Run a 90 degree wash cycle with detergent and no laundry.
The machine door cannot be
opened.
• The door will not open until the door lock indicator light goes out shortly after
the program has finished.
Door Seal damaged at the bottom.
• The door seal has drainage holes at the bottom - This is normal.
The water level is too low when
the machine is washing.
• The water level is correct if it can be seen at the bottom of the door.
There is too much foam.
• The detergent is not suitable for machine washing (it should display the text
‘for washing machines’ or ‘hand and machine wash’ or the like).
• Too much detergent was used - less detergent is required in soft water.
After completing the programme,
or before starting a programme,
the machine has turned itself off
(no lights).
• To comply with new energy saving regulations the machine is fitted with an
automatic standby system. Press ‘ON/OFF’ button for 3 seconds to activate
the machine, it can then either be switched off or a new programme selected.
General.
• Your washing machine contains sensors that monitor progress during the wash
cycle (eg: Water Levels, Temperatures, Out of Balance loads, Wash time/progress).
Normally, if your machine successfully completes the cycle, there is unlikely to
be anything wrong!
Remember, you will be charged for a service call for problems caused by incorrect installation, as listed
above.
Not emptying contents from pockets may cause pump or drain blockages, or may damage the machine.
Do not wash items which do not have a wash label, or wash items that are not intended as machine
washable.
