6. WASHING HINTS
6.1 Sorting The Laundry
Follow the wash code symbols on
each garment label and the
manufacturer’s washing instructions.
Sort the laundry as follows: whites,
coloureds, synthetics, delicates,
woollens.
6.2 Before Loading The
Laundry
Never wash whites and coloureds
together. Whites may lose their
“whiteness” in the wash.
New coloured items may run in the
first wash; they should therefore be
washed separately the first time.
Make sure that no metal objects
are left in the laundry (e.g. hair
clips, safety pins, pins).
Button up pillowcases, close zip
fasteners, hooks and poppers. Tie
any belts or long tapes.
Remove persistent stains before
washing.
Rub particularly soiled areas with a
special detergent or detergent
paste. Treat curtains with special
care. Remove hooks or tie them up
in a bag or a net.
6.3 Maximum Loads
Recommended loads are indicated
in the program charts. General
rules:
Cotton, linen: drum full but not
too tightly packed;
Synthetics:
drum no more
than half full;
Delicate
fabrics and
woollens:
drum no more
than one third full.
Washing a maximum load makes
the most efficient use of water and
energy. For heavily soiled laundry,
reduce the load size.
6.4 Removing Stains
Stubborn stains may not be
removed by just water and
detergent. It is therefore advisable
to treat them prior to washing.
Blood: treat fresh stains with cold
water. For dried stains, soak
overnight in water with a special
detergent then rub in the soap and
water.
Oil based paint: moisten with
benzine stain remover, lay the
garment on a soft cloth and dab
the stain; treat several times.
Dried grease stains: moisten with
turpentine, lay the garment on a
soft surface and dab the stain with
the fingertips and a cotton cloth.
Rust: oxalic acid dissolved in hot
water or a rust removing product
used in cold water. Be careful with
rust stains which are not recent
since the cellulose structure will
already have been damaged and
the fabric tends to hole.
ENGLISH
Mould stains: treat with bleach,
rinse well (whites and fast

6.5 Detergents Type And
Quantity Of Detergent
Low sudsing detergent is required
for this washing machine to
prevent oversudsing problems,
unsatisfied washing result and
harm to the machine.
Low sudsing detergents designed
for front load washing machines
are labelled “Front Loading”, “high
efficiency”, “HE”, such as Cold
Power for Front Loaders or
“Matic”.
Do not use wrong types of
detergent, such as Top Loading,
Handwash detergent or
Soap-Based products in your
frontload washing machine. This
can result in excessive suds,
longer cycle time, low spin speeds,
poor rinsing and overloading of the
motor.
6.6 Quantity of detergent to be
used
The choice of detergent and use of
correct quantities not only affects
your wash performance, but also
helps to avoid waste and protect
the environment. Although
biodegradable, detergents contain
substances which in large
quantities can upset the delicate
balance of nature.
The choice and quantity of
detergent will depend on;
type of fabric (delicates,
woollens, cottons, etc.);
the colour of clothes;
size of the load;
degree of soil; and
hardness of the water used.
20
www.electrolux.com
Water hardness is classified by
so-called “degrees” of hardness.
Information on hardness of the water
in your area can be obtained from
the relevant water supply company,
or from your local authority.
You may have to try using the
detergent quantity as per
manufacturers’ instructions then
compare the wash result to the list
below and adjust the amount of
detergent for your future washes
accordingly.
Not enough washing powder causes:
the washload to turn grey,
greasy clothes.
Too much washing powder causes:
sudsing,
reduced washing effect,
inadequate rinsing.
Use less detergent if:
you are washing a small load,
the laundry is lightly soiled,
large amounts of foam during
washing.

8. CARE AND CLEANING
WARNING!
You must DISCONNECT the
appliance from the electricity
supply, before you can carry out
any cleaning or maintenance
work.
To run a maintenance wash:
The drum should be empty of
laundry.
Select “Cottons” wash program.
Press Start/Pause to start the
program.
8.1 External Cleaning
Clean the appliance only with soap
and warm water. Fully dry all the
surfaces.
CAUTION!
Do not use alcohol, solvents or
chemical products.
8.2 Descaling
The water we use normally
contains lime. It is a good idea to
periodically use a water softening
powder in the machine.
8.5 Cleaning The Dispenser
Drawer
The washing powder and additive
dispenser drawer should be
cleaned regularly. Remove the
drawer by pressing the catch
downwards and by pulling it out.
Flush it out under a tap, to remove
any traces of accumulated powder.
Do this separately from any laundry
washing, and according to the
softening powder manufacturer's
instructions.
This will help to prevent the
formation of lime deposits.
8.3 After Each Wash
Leave the door open for a while.
This helps to prevent mould and
stagnant smells forming inside the
appliance. Keeping the door open
after a wash will also help to
preserve the door seal.
8.4 Maintenance Wash
With the use of low temperature
washes it is possible to get a build
up of residues inside the drum.
We recommend that a maintenance
wash be performed on a regular
basis.
To aid cleaning, the top part of the
additive compartment should be
removed.
ENGLISH
23
8.6 Cleaning The Drawer Bottom
After washing cycle finish, residues
of softener and water may remain
in the softener dispenser. It is
recommended to clean the bottom
of softener dispenser regularly to
remove any residue.
To clean the bottom of softener
dispenser:
1. After pulling out the drawer
from its recess, turn the bottom
side up.
4. Close the softener bottom
cover.
8.7 Cleaning The Drawer Recess
2. Push the catch and pull up the
softener bottom cover.
Having removed the drawer, use a
small brush to clean the recess,
ensuring that all washing powder
residue is removed from the upper
and lower part of the recess.
Replace the drawer and run the
rinse program without any clothes
in the drum.
8.8 Cleaning The Water Inlet Filter
If your water is very hard or contains
traces of lime deposit, the water
inlet filter may become clogged.
3. Clean the dispenser with an old
toothbrush under the water tap.
It is therefore a good idea to clean
it from time to time.
To clean the water inlet filters:
1. Close the water tap.
2. Remove the water inlet hose
from the water tap.
24
www.electrolux.com
3. Clean the filter in the inlet hose
with a stiff brush.
Disconnect the mains plug
from the mains socket.
1. Turn off the water tap.
2. Unscrew the inlet hose.
3. Remove the drain hose from the
rear support and unhook it from
sink or spigot.
4. Remove the inlet hose behind
the appliance.
5. Clean the filter in the valve with
a stiff brush or a towel.
4. Put the ends of the drain and
inlet hose in a container. Let the
water flow out of the hoses.
5. When no more water flows,
install the inlet hose and the
drain hose again.
6. Install again the inlet hose. Make
sure that the couplings are tight
to prevent leakages.
45°
7. Open the water tap.
8.9 The Dangers Of Freezing
If the machine is exposed to
temperatures below 0°C, certain
precautions should be taken.
Do this procedure also when you
want to do the emergency drain.
Make sure that the temperature is more than 0 °C before
you use the appliance again.
The manufacturer is not
responsible for damages
caused by low temperatures.

It is important that your washing
machine stands firm and leveled
on the floor to ensure correct
operation. The appliance must not
be installed behind a lockable
door, a sliding door or a door with
a hinge on the opposite side to
avoid restricting the washing
machine door.
Use a spirit level on the top and
side of the washing machine to
check the levels.
If you do not have a spirit level, as
a guide use the edge of a door
frame, cupboard or bench to
check that the washing machine
is leveled.
Loosen or tighten the feet to adjust
the level. A correct adjustment of
the appliance level prevents
vibration, noise and the movement
of the appliance when in operation.
ENGLISH
Loosen the ring nut to angle the hose to
the left or right depending on the position
of your water tap. Do not place the inlet
hose downwards. After positioning the
inlet hose, be sure to tighten the ring nut
again to prevent leaks.

“An incorrect power supply may void
your warranty.”
Check that your domestic electrical
installation can take the maximum load
required (350 W), also taking into
account any other appliances in use.
CAUTION!
Connect the machine to an
earthed socket outlet.
The manufacturer declines any
responsibility for damage or injury
through failure to comply with the
above safety precaution.
Should the appliance power
supply cable need to be replaced,
this shall be carried out by our
Service Centre.
ENGLISH
When the appliance is installed, the
power supply cable must be easily
accessible.
12. ENVIRONMENT CONCERNS

12.3 Ecological Hints
To save water, energy and to help
protect the environment, we
recommend that you follow these
tips:
Normally soiled laundry may be
washed without prewashing in
order to save detergent, water
and time (the environment is
protected too!).
The machine works more
economically if it is fully loaded.
With adequate pre-treatment,
stains and limited soil can be
removed; the laundry can then be
washed at a lower temperature.
Measure out detergent according
to the water hardness, the
degree of soil and the quantity of
laundry being washed.
