Detergent and load recommendations
We suggest you use detergent in the amounts recommended below. Too little will
give poor washing results, but too much will affect rinse performance and may cause
overflow of suds, which could interfere with machine operation.
CAUTION: Do not overfill detergent!
Add detergent into the detergent box or put it directly into the tub.
NOTE: it is recommended that powder detergent should be thoroughly dissolved in a
small amount of warm water before adding to the machine.
If you are using liquid detergent or bleach, dilute it appropriately and pour it
carefully into the hole on the top plate. Do not pour bleach directly onto the
washing load in the tub.

FAQs and Troubleshooting
Not all unusual incidents you may encounter with your washing machine are faults, or
cause for concern. Check in the list below what issues may arise and why. Also check
in the table on the following page for solutions to other common problems.
The washer does not work at all. What could | have done wrong?
Check and ensure that the washer is connected properly to the power supply
and power is switched on at the outlet. If both are OK, first press the Power On/
Off button, then press the Start/Pause button. If the machine still does not start
the set program, check elsewhere in your home whether there has been a power
failure, or whether the fuse or circuit breaker has been activated.
The drain hose is leaking water during the first use. Does this indicate there is
a problem?
No, this is normal; it is residual water from the performance test in the factory and
no cause for concern.
Why is there still some water intake during the wash or rinse cycle?
When the water level is low, the washing machine will automatically refill during
the washing or rinsing process. This is no cause for concern.
At the beginning of the spin cycle, why is the tub turning first and then
This is intermittent spinning and it results in better spinning performance.
During the spin cycle, why is the machine spinning and then stopping
suddenly and taking in water again?
lf the washing is piled up at one side of the tub during the spin cycle, the washing
machine automatically takes in more water to redistribute the load. Once the load
is balanced again, the spin cycle will continue.
Why is there a sound like water flowing after spinning?
This is the sound of the balancing liquid in the balance ring. This helps reduce
vibration during spinning.
Why is the control panel still warm after the power is switched off?
This is caused by the memory circuitry still working.
If none of the solutions offered above and on the following page help you solve the
problem, contact our after sales support line for advice.
Error messages

Care and Maintenance
Cleaning and care
To prolong the service life of the washing machine, keep it in good condition and
perform regular maintenance. For any type of cleaning and maintenance, make
sure the washing machine is disconnected from the mains power supply.
Cleaning the washing machine (when required)
Use a soft cloth to wipe any water or dirt off the washer lid and housing. If using a
damp cloth, squeeze it almost dry to avoid leaving water residues.
The detergent box may be pulled out for cleaning, if required. Other inside parts
should be wiped with a damp cloth, if necessary.
Do not use any chemical, alkaline or abrasive cleaning agents to avoid damaging
the surface. Do not spray water directly onto the washer housing.
If you frequently use a COLD wash cycle, you will need to clean the inside
of your washing machine regularly (every three months), especially if
you use a fabric softener. Liquid detergents can cause detergent scum
to build up around the outside of the inner tub, which cold water will not
remove and which can cause bacteria, unpleasant odours, and eventuaily
soiling of your wash load.
To remove scum build-up from the inside of a washing machine, run
a cleaning cycle without clothes using the COTTON program and HOT
As acleaning agent, use a commercially available washing machine
cleaning product (such as Trimat Washing Machine Cleaner) according
to the instructions on the product), or use a mix of bicarbonate of soda
(% cup) and white household vinegar (2 cups).
Cleaning the lint filter (suggested interval: every week)
Take out the lint filter as illustrated below. Open the filter and rinse it clean under
running water, taking care not to damage any parts. Reinstall the filter, making sure it
fits securely behind the cover clasp and latches and locks securely into place.
Cleaning the water inlet valve (suggested interval: every 6 months)
To avoid blockage of the mesh filter at the water inlet after long time use, detach
the water inlet hose, making sure you have turned off the water supply at the taps
beforehand. Take the mesh filter out of the water inlet valve and clean the filter with a
soft brush. Then assemble the mesh filter back into the valve and reconnect the water
inlet hose.

Cleaning the hose filter (suggested interval: every 6 months)
To avoid blockage of the hose filter after long time use, detach the water inlet hose,
making sure you have turned off the water supply at the taps beforehand. Turn the nut
anticlockwise to take off the hose, clean the filter under running water or with a soft
brush, then reconnect the hose.
Drain pump maintenance
We recommend that you clean the drain pump filter regularly (at least once a month) to
avoid blockages created by bobby pins, coins and excess lint.
Proceed as follows:
1. Disconnect the washer from the power source.
2. If necessary, wait until the water has cooled down.
3. Place a container underneath the pump opening to collect any spillage (see
below, left).
4. Turn the filter cap anticlockwise to take it out gently (see below, right). Always
keep a rag nearby to dry up water spillage when removing the pump filter.
