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.

1) Test wash cycle in compliance with regulation 1061/2010:

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.

For all testing institutes:

2) Long cotton cycle: set cycle 9 at a temperature of 40°C.

3) Long synthetics cycle: set cycle 10 at a temperature of 40°C.

TIPS AND SUGGESTIONS

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).

Empty the pockets:

Objects such as coins or lighters can damage the washing machine and the drum. Check all buttons.

Follow the dosage recommendation / additives

It optimizes the cleaning result, it avoids irritating residues of surplus detergent in your laundry and it saves money by avoiding waste of surplus detergent.

Use low temperature and longer duration

The most efficient programmes in terms of energy consumption are generally those that perform at lower temperatures and longer duration.

Observe the load sizes

Load your washing machine up to the capacity indicated in the

“Wash Cycle Table” table to save water and energy.

Noise and remaining moisture content

They are influenced by the spinning speed: the higher the spinning speed in the spinning phase, the higher the noise and the lower the remaining moisture content.

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. Clean and maintain your washing machine periodically (at least 4 times per year).

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

GB

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”.

DEMO MODE: to deactivate this function, switch the washing machine OFF. Than press and hold “START/PAUSE” button, within

5 seconds press also “ON/OFF” button and hold both buttons for 2 seconds.
