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 .

User manual

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

• 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

Do not wash

CLEAN THE WATER FILTER REGULARLY

• This is needed to prevent the filter from blocking and preventing the water from draining correctly .

HOW MUCH DOES YOUR LAUNDRY WEIGH?

• 1 sheet 400-500 g

• 1 pillow case 150-200 g

• 1 tablecloth 400-500 g

• 1 bathrobe 900-1 .200 g

CLEANING & MAINTENANCE

EN

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 .

CARE FOR THE DOOR AND DRUM

Always leave the porthole door ajar in order to prevent unpleasant odours from forming .

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 .

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;

!

Never use hoses that have already been used .
