HYGIENE
A washing programme for white cottons. This programme
helps to eliminate micro-organisms by washing at 60°C
and adding an additional rinse. Special hygiene additives
can be added via the STAIN compartment in the detergent
dispenser drawer.
MIX 40-60
Special programme for white and coloured cotton suitable
for different washing temperatures. This programme can be
used for laundry, which should be washed at 40°C or 60°C
separately. So, you can put into the drum the maximum
load capacity in order to save energy and water. You will
obtain the same good washing result as a normal
programme at 60°C.
JEANS
With this programme it is possible to wash items like pants,
shirts or jackets in denim and also jersey realized with hitech materials. (The EXTRA RINSE option will be activated
automatically).
EASY IRON PLUS
Selecting this programme the laundry is gently washed and
spun to avoid any creasing. In this way ironing is easier.
Furthermore the machine will perform additional rinses.
VISCOSE
Special gentle programme for fabrics such a viscose, cupro,
lyocell. It performs a cleaning action more intensive than
the HANDWASH programme.
WOOL PLUS
HANDWASH
Washing programme for machine washable wool as well as
for hand washable woollens and delicate fabrics with the
«hand washing» care symbol
.
LINGERIE
This programme is suitable for very delicate items, such as
lingerie, underwear etc.
SILK
Delicate washing programme suitable for silk and mixed
synthetic items.

Programme information
OUTDOOR SPORTS
Special programme for sport clothes. When selecting this
program, do not add any additives.
SPORT INTENSIVE
This programme is suitable for washing heavily soiled sport
items. The machine will add automatically a prewash phase
before the main wash to eliminate mud stains. We
recommend that you do not put the detergent into the
compartment
of the detergent drawer.
20 MIN. - 3 KG
Special program at 30°C, duration - approx. 20 minutes,
ideal for laundry to be refreshed: e.g. a sport jacket worn
only once or slightly soiled or new garments.
QUICK INTENSIVE
Quick washing programme, to be used for lightly soiled
white/fast coloured cottons and mixed fabrics.
ECONOMY
This programme can be selected for slightly or normally
soiled cotton items. The temperature will decrease and the
washing time will be extended. This allows you to obtain a
good washing efficiency whilst saving energy.
RINSES
With this programme it is possible to rinse and spin
garments which have been washed by hand. The machine
performs 3 rinses, followed by a final short spin. The spin
speed can be reduced by relevant button.
DRAIN
For emptying out the water of the last rinse in programmes
with the RINSE HOLD and NIGHT CYCLE option. Before
selecting this programme the selector dial must be turned to
O/OFF.
SPIN
Separate spin for hand washed cotton items and after
programmes with the RINSE HOLD and NIGHT CYCLE
option. Before selecting this programme the selector dial
must be turned to O/OFF. You can choose the speed by
means of the relevant button to adapt it to the fabrics to
be spun.
DELICATE SPIN
Separate short spin for hand washed garments. It has to
be used for synthetic, delicate, wool/handwashed, silk
items.

Preparing the wash cycle
Sorting out 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.
Temperatures
95° or 90°
for normally soiled white cottons and linen (e.g. tea cloths,
towels, tablecloths, sheets...).
60°/50°
for normally soiled, colour fast garments (e.g. shirts, night
dresses, pyjamas....) in linen, cotton or synthetic fibres and
for lightly soiled white cotton (e.g. underwear).
40°-30°- Cold
for delicate items (e.g. net curtains), mixed laundry including
synthetic fibres and woollens bearing the label «pure new
wool, machine washable, non-shrink».
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 net.

Maximum loads
Recommended loads are indicated in the washing programme 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.

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 cold. Be
careful with rust stains which are not recent since the cellulose structure will
have already been damaged and the fabric tends to hole.

Preparing the wash cycle
Mould stains: treat with bleach, rinse well (whites and fast coloureds only).
Grass: soap lightly and treat with bleach (whites and fast coloureds only).
Ball point pen and glue: moisten with acetone (*), lay the garment on a soft
cloth and dab the stain.
Lipstick: moisten with acetone as above, then treat stains with methylated
spirits. Treat any residual marks with bleach.
Red wine: soak in water and detergent, rinse and treat with acetic or citric acid,
then rinse. Treat any residual marks with bleach.
Ink: depending on the type of ink, moisten the fabric first with acetone (*), then
with acetic acid; treat any residual marks on white fabrics with bleach and then
rinse thoroughly.
Tar stains: first treat with stain remover, methylated spirits or benzine, then rub
with detergent paste.
(*) do not use acetone on artificial silk.
Detergents and additives
Good washing results also depend on the choice of detergent and use of the
correct quantities 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 of detergent will depend on the type of fabric (delicates, woollens,
cottons, etc.), the colour, washing temperature and degree of soiling.
All commonly available washing machine detergents may be used in this
appliance:
• powder detergents for all types of fabric,
• powder detergents for delicate fabrics (60°C max) and woollens,
• liquid detergents, preferably for low temperature wash programmes (60°C
max) for all types of fabric, or special for woollens only.
The detergent and any additives must be placed in the appropriate
compartments of the dispenser drawer before starting the wash programme.
If using concentrated powder or liquid detergents, a programme without
prewash must be selected.
The washing machine incorporates a recirculation system which allows an
optimal use of the concentrated detergent.
Pour liquid detergent into the dispenser drawer compartment marked
just
before starting the programme.

Any fabric softener or starching additives must be poured into the compartment
marked
before starting the wash programme.
Follow the product manufacturers’ recommendations on quantities to use and do
not exceed the «MAX» mark in the detergent dispenser drawer.
Quantity of detergent to be used
The type and quantity of detergent will depend on the type of fabric, load size,
degree of soiling and hardness of the water used.
Follow the product manufacturers’ instructions on quantities to use.
Use less detergent if:
• you are washing a small load,
• the laundry is lightly soiled,
• large amounts of foam form during washing.
• For the stain treatment before the washing cycle, follow the product
manufacturers’ instructions on detergent quantities. If you use any specific
product to remove the stains, you must start the washing immediately .
Degrees of water hardness
Water hardness is classified in 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.
Note: A water softener must be added when water has a medium-high degree
of hardness (from degree of hardness II). Follow the manufacturer’s instructions.
The quantity of detergent can then always be adjusted to degree of hardness I (=
soft).

Care and cleaning
Care and cleaning
You must DISCONNECT the appliance from the electricity supply, before you can
carry out any cleaning or maintenance work.
Descaling
The water we use normally contains lime. It is a good idea to periodically use a
water softening powder in the machine. 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.
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.
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 run a maintenance wash:
• The drum should be empty of laundry.
• Select the hottest cotton wash programme.
• Use a normal measure of detergent, must be a powder with biological
properties.
External cleaning
Clean the exterior cabinet of the appliance with soap and water only, and then
dry thoroughly.
Important! Do not use methylated spirits, solvents or similar products to clean
the cabinet.
Detergent dispenser drawer
The detergent dispenser drawer should be
cleaned regularly.
1. Remove the detergent dispenser drawer
by pulling it firmly.

5. Clean all parts of the washing machine, especially the nozzles in the top
of the washing-in chamber, with a
brush.
6. Insert the detergent dispenser drawer in the guide rails and push it in.
Washing drum
Rust deposits in the drum may occur due to rusting foreign bodies in the
washing or tap water containing iron.
Important! Do not clean the drum with acidic descaling agents, scouring agents
containing chlorine or iron or steel wool.
1. Remove any rust deposits on the drum with a cleaning agent for stainless
steel.
2. Run a washing cycle without any laundry to clean off any cleaning agent
residues. Programme: COTTONS/LINEN 90° or 95°C, press the button 6, add
approx. 1/4 measuring cup of detergent.

Cause possible/Solution
The programme is still running.
• Wait until the end of washing cycle.
The door will not open:
The door lock has not been released.
• Wait until the DOOR symbol disappears.
There is water in the drum.
• Select drain or spin programme to empty out the

The laundry is not evenly distributed in the drum.
• Redistribute the laundry.
Maybe there is very little laundry in the drum.
• Load more laundry.
The electronic unbalance detection device has cut in
because the laundry is not evenly distributed in the
drum. The laundry is redistributed by reverse rotation
of the drum. This may happen several times before
Spinning starts late or the machine
the unbalance disappears and normal spinning can
does not spin:
resume. If, after some minutes, the laundry is still not
evenly distributed in the drum, the machine will not
spin.
• Redistribute the laundry.

Install the machine on a flat hard floor.
Make sure that air circulation around the machine is
not impeded by carpets, rugs etc.
Before placing it on small tiles, apply a rubber
coating.
Never try to correct any unevenness in the floor by HEC007S
putting pieces of wood, cardboard or similar
materials under the machine.
If it is impossible to avoid positioning the machine next to a gas cooker or coalburning stove, an insulating panel covered with aluminium foil on the side facing
the cooker or stove, must be inserted between the two appliances.
The machine must not be installed in rooms where the temperature can drop
below 0. The water inlet hose and the drain hose must not be kinked.
Please ensure that when the appliance is installed, it is easily accessible for the
engineer in the event of a breakdown.
Carefully level by screwing the adjustable feet in or out.
Automatic foot: The rear foot on the left-hand side of your washing machine is
built as a shock absorbing foot, which is why the appliance gives in the back lefthand corner if put under load. The automatic foot guarantees that the appliance
does not move even at high spin speeds. Basically the automatic foot does not
need to be set.
Water inlet
An inlet hose is supplied and can be found inside the machine drum.
Do not use the hose from your previous machine to connect to the
water supply.
This appliance must be connected to a cold water supply.
1. Open the porthole and extract the inlet hose.
2. Connect the hose with the angled connection to
the machine.
Do not place the inlet hose downwards. Angle
the hose to the left or right depending on the
position of your water tap.

3. Set the hose correctly by loosening the ring nut.
After positioning the inlet hose, be sure to tighten
the ring nut again to prevent leaks.
4. Connect the hose to a tap with a 3/4” thread.
Always use the hose supplied with the appliance.
Installation should comply with local water authority
and building regulations requirements. A minimum
water pressure of 0.05 MPa is required for safe
operation of the appliance.
If you cannot make the cold water connection direct from the rising mains, you
may be able to operate the appliance from your cold water storage system. There
should be a minimum vertical distance of between the appliance’s inlet and the
bottom of the water storage tank.
The inlet hose must not be lengthened. If it is too short and you do not wish to
move the tap, you will have to purchase a new, longer hose specially designed
for this type of use.
Water-stop device
The inlet hose is provided with a water stop device, which
protects against damage caused by water leaks in the hose
which could develop due to natural ageing of the hose.

Should this occur, turn the water tap off and refer to your
Service Centre to replace the hose.

Water drainage
This appliance is designed to be permanently plumbed into your home's drainage
system using one of the following methods.
1. Into a drainage standpipe.
Firstly form a hook in the end of the drain hose using
the “U” piece” supplied.
Place the drain hose into your standpipe, which
should have an internal diameter of approximately
38mm thus ensuring there is an air break between

If your drain hose looks like this (see the relevant
picture) you do not require the “U” piece”. Just push
the hose firmly into the standpipe.
2. Onto a sink outlet spigot.
If the outlet spigot has not been used before, remove any blanking plug that may
be in place.
Push the drain hose onto the spigot and secure with a clip, ensure a loop is formed
in the drain hose (see diagram) to prevent waste from the sink entering the washing machine.
The drain hose may be extended to a maximum of 4
metres. An additional drain hose and joining piece is
available from your local Service Force Centre. The
joining piece must have an internal diameter of 18
mm.

If you intend to drain the hose from the
machine into a sink, make sure that the
sink is empty and the plug hole is not
blocked. Use the plastic “U -Piece” supplied.
In the interest of the environment
Washing machines should be connected to the FOUL drainage system, the
water will then be taken to a sewage
works for treatment before being discharged safely into a river.
It is essential that these appliances are
not connected to the surface water
drainage system as this water is discharged directly into a river or stream
and may cause pollution.
If you require any further advice please
contact your local water authority.
