3 minutes). 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.
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).
OPTIONS
- If the selected function is not compatible with the programmed wash
cycle, the corresponding indicator light will flash and the function will
not be activated.
- If the selected option is not compatible with another previously
selected option, the indicator light will flash and only the latter option
will be activated; the indicator light corresponding to the activated
option will turn on.
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.
Easy iron
By selecting this function, the wash and spin cycles will be modified in
order to reduce the formation of creases. At the end of the cycle the
washing machine will perform slow rotations of the drum, while the EASY
IRON and START/PAUSE
indicator lights will flash and the
led will
remain lit in a fixed manner. To end the cycle, press the START/PAUSE
button or the EASY IRON button.
Delay start
To set a delayed start for the selected cycle, press the corresponding button
repeatedly until the desired delay period has been reached (3h-6h-9h).
When the button is pressed for the fourth time, the option will deactivate.
Once the START/PAUSE
button has been pressed, the delay time can
only be modified by decreasing it until the set cycle is launched.
Temperature
Turning the TEMPERATURE knob to set the wash temperature.
The temperature may be lowered, or even set to a cold wash .
N.B.: If the set value is compatible with the selected cycle, the knob indicator
will be lit (fixed light). If it isn’t, it will flash and 3 beeps will be heard.
The washing machine will automatically prevent you from selecting a
temperature which is higher than the maximum value set for each wash cycle.
Spin
Turning the SPIN SPEED knobn to set the spin speed for the selected wash
cycle.
The spin speed may be lowered, or the spin cycle can be excluded
altogether by selecting the symbol
.
The washing machine will automatically prevent you from selecting a
spin speed which is higher than the maximum speed set for each wash
cycle.
N.B.: If the set value is compatible with the selected cycle, the knob
indicator will be lit (fixed light). If it isn’t, it will flash and 3 beeps will be
heard.
Push & Wash
This function allows for starting a wash cycle even when the machine is
switched off without having to press the ON/OFF button in advance
or, after switching the machine on, without having activated any other
button and/or selector knob (otherwise the Push & Wash cycle will be
deactivated). To start the Push & Wash cycle press and hold the relative
button for 2 seconds. The lit indicator light indicates that the cycle has
started. This wash cycle is ideal for cotton or synthetic fabrics, as it washes
at a temperature of 30°C and a maximum spin speed of 1.000 rpm. Max
load 3,5 kg (cycle duration 45’).
How does it work?
1. Load the laundry (cotton and/or synthetic garments) and close the
door.
2. Pour the detergent and additives.
3. Start the cycle by pressing and holding the Push & Wash button for 2
seconds. The relevant indicator light will turn green and the door will lock
(the symbol lights up).
N.B.: starting the wash cycle through the Push & Wash button activates an
automatic non-customisable cycle recommended for cotton and synthetic
fabrics. This cycle does not allow for setting any additional options.
To open the door while an automatic cycle is under way, press the START/
PAUSE
button; if the locked door symbol is off, the door may be
opened. Press the START/PAUSE
button again to restart the cycle from
the point at which it was interrupted.
4. Once the programme is finished, the
indicator light turns on.
CHILD LOCK
to activate the control panel lock, press and hold the button for
approximately 2 seconds. The lit
symbol signals that the control
panel is locked. This prevents wash cycles from being modified
accidentally (except for the ON/OFF button), especially if there are
children in the home. To deactivate the control panel lock, press and hold
the button for approximately 2 seconds.
Empty the pockets:
Objects such as coins or lighters can damage the washing machine and
the drum. Check all buttons.
CARE AND 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-clean” 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.
Clean the detergent dispenser drawer
Wash it under running water; this operation should be repeated frequently.
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 pre-chamber 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;
2. loosen the drainage pump cover by turning it anti-clockwise: it is
normal for some water to leak out;
3. clean the inside thoroughly;
4. screw the cover back on;
5. put the panel back in place, making sure the hooks slot in place before
pushing the panel onto the appliance.
Check the water inlet hose
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.
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.
ACCESSORIES
Contact our Technical Assistance Service to check whether the following
accessories are available for this washing machine model.
Stacking kit
With this accessory you can secure the tumble dryer to the upper part of
your washing machine to save space and facilitate loading and unloading
of the tumble dryer.
TRANSPORT AND HANDLING
Do not lift the washing machine by gripping it from the upper section.
Unplug the appliance and close the water tap. Check that the door and
detergent dispenser drawer are tightly closed. Detach the filling hose
from the water tap then detach the drain hose. Empty all the water
remaining in the hoses and secure the latter so that they do not get
damaged during transport. Apply the transport bolts back on. Repeat, in
reverse order, the transport bolt removal procedure described in the
“Health & Safety and Installation Guides”.
TROUBLESHOOTING
The washing machine may occasionally fail to work. Before contacting the Technical Assistance Service, make sure that the problem cannot be easily
solved using the following list.
