DETERGENT DISPENSER DRAWER
Successful washing results also depend on the correct dose
of detergent: adding too much detergent will not necessarily
result in a more efficient wash, and may in fact cause
build up on the inside of your appliance and contribute to
environmental pollution.
! Do not use hand washing detergents because these create
too much foam.
! Use powder detergent for white cotton garments, for
prewashing, and for washing at temperatures over 60°C.
! Follow the instructions given on the detergent packaging.
Open the detergent dispenser drawer and pour in the
detergent or washing additive, as follows.
1. Compartment : Washing detergent (powder or liquid)
• If liquid detergent is used, the removable plastic
partition A (supplied) should be used for proper
dosage.
• If powder detergent is used, insert the partition into
slot B.
2. Compartment
• Do not insert detergent in this compartment.
3. Compartment : Additives (fabric softener, etc.)
• The fabric softener must never exceed the “max” level
indicated on the central pin.

The cycle duration indicated on the display or instruction manual
is an estimate based on standard conditions. The actual duration
may vary in relation to several factors, such as the temperature
and pressure of the incoming water, ambient temperature,
amount of detergent, load quantity and type, load balancing and
any additional options selected.
For all testing institutes:
2) Long cotton cycle: set cycle 6 at a temperature of 40°C.
3) Long synthetics cycle: set cycle 7 at a temperature of 40°C.
* By selecting the cycle and excluding the spin cycle, the
washing machine will drain only.
Test wash cycle in compliance with regulation 1061/2010:
1) This cycle is designed for normally soiled cotton loads and
is the most efficient in terms of both electricity and water
consumption; it should be used for garments washable at 60°C
or at 40°C. The actual washing temperature may differ from the
indicated value.

HOW TO USE THE APPLIANCE
FIRST TIME USE
Once the appliance has been installed, and before it is used
for the first time, run a wash cycle with detergent and no
laundry, by setting the “Auto-Clean” cycle.
DAILY USE
PREPARING THE LAUNDRY
Empty the pockets
• Objects such as coins or lighters can damage the
washing machine and the drum. Check all buttons.
Divide the laundry according to
• Type of fabric (cotton, mixed fibres, synthetics, wool,
garments to be hand-washed). Colour (separate coloured
garments from whites, wash new coloured garments
separately). Delicates (small garments – such as nylon
stockings – and items with hooks – such as bras: insert
them in a fabric bag).
RUNNING A WASH CYCLE
Rapid programming
1. Open the door. Load the laundry while making
sure not to exceed the maximum load quantity
indicated in the cycle table.
2. Pull out the detergent dispenser drawer and pour
the detergent into the relevant compartments as
described in “DETERGENT DISPENSER DRAWER”
section.

section.
4. Close the door.
5. Set the WASH CYCLE knob to the desired
cycle.
40°
6. Modify the temperature and/or spin: pressing the
60°
button allows for gradually reducing the temperature
down to the cold wash level (20°C). The spin speed may
be progressively reduced by pressing the
button,
until it is completely excluded (the “ ” setting. If these
buttons are pressed again, the maximum values are
restored.
PAUSING A CYCLE
- If the selected option is not compatible with the set wash cycle, the
indicator light will flash and the option will not be activated.
- If the selected option is not compatible with another previously
selected option, the indicator light will flash accompanied by a
buzzer (3 beeps), and only the latter option will be activated; the
indicator light corresponding to the activated option will turn on.
8. Press the START/PAUSE
button to start the wash cycle;
the relative indicator light will light up steady green and
the door will lock ( symbol on).
To pause the wash cycle, press the START/PAUSE
button
again; the indicator light will flash amber. If the symbol is
not lit, the door may be opened. To start the wash cycle from
the point at which it was interrupted, press the START/PAUSE
button again.
OPENING THE DOOR, IF NECESSARY
Once a cycle starts, the symbol turns on to signal that the
door cannot be opened. While a wash cycle is running, the
door remains locked. To open the door while a cycle is under
way, for example, to add or remove garments, press the
START/PAUSE
button to pause the cycle; the indicator light
will flash amber. If the symbol is not lit, the door may be
opened. Press the START/PAUSE
button again to continue
the cycle.
CHANGING A RUNNING WASH CYCLE

User manual
END OF THE CYCLE
Once the cycle terminates the indicator light will light
up; when the indicator light switches off, the door may
be opened. Open the door, unload the laundry and switch
off the machine. If you do not press “ON/OFF” button, the
washing machine will switch off automatically after about
a half of an hour. Close the water tap, open the door and
unload the washing machine. Leave the door ajar to allow the
drum to dry.
! If you wish to cancel a cycle which has already begun,
press and hold the “ON/OFF” button. The cycle will be
stopped and the machine will switch off.
Load balancing system
Before every spin cycle, to avoid excessive vibrations before
every spin 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.
HINTS AND TIPS
RULES FOR SEPARATING LAUNDRY
CLEAN THE WATER FILTER REGULARLY

•
Fabric type / indications on label (cotton, mixed fibres,
synthetic, wool, handwash items)
Colour (separate coloured garments from whites, wash
new coloured items separately)
Size (wash items of different sizes in the same load to
improve washing efficacy and weight distribution in the
drum)
Delicates (place small items – such as nylon stockings –
and garments with clasps – such as braziers – in a laundry
bag or in a pillow case with a zip).
WASH SYMBOLS ON GARMENT LABELS
The value given in the tub symbol is the maximum
temperature possible for washing the garment.
Normal mechanical action
Reduced mechanical action
Much reduced mechanical action
Hand wash only

CLEANING & MAINTENANCE
Before performing cleaning and maintenance, switch the washing machine off and disconnect it from the mains
power. Do not use flammable liquids to clean the washing machine.
DISCONNECT THE WATER AND POWER
SUPPLIES
Close the water tap after every wash. 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.
CLEAN 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.
The washing machine has a “Auto-cleaning” cycle for its
internal parts; it must be run without any load in the drum.
To optimise this cycle, it is possible to use either detergent
(10% of the quantity specified for lightly soiled garments)
or special additives to clean the washing machine. We
recommend running a cleaning cycle every 40 wash cycles.
To start the cycle press buttons
and
simultaneously
for 5 seconds.
The cycle will start automatically and will run for about 70
minutes. To stop the cycle, press the START/PAUSE
button.

CARE FOR THE DOOR AND DRUM
Always leave the porthole door ajar in order to prevent
unpleasant odours from forming.
CLEAN THE PUMP
The washing machine is fitted with a auto-cleaning pump
that does not require any maintenance. Small items (such as
coins or buttons) may sometimes fall into the protective prechamber situated at the base of the pump.
! Make sure the wash cycle has ended and unplug the
appliance.
To access the pre-chamber:
1. Remove the cover panel on the front of the machine by
first pressing it in the centre then pushing downwards on
both sides to extract it;

Check the water inlet hose at least once a year. If it is cracked
or broken, it must be replaced: during wash cycles, the high
pressure of the water could suddenly split the hose open.
! Never use hoses that have already been used.
