WASHING HINTS
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.
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.
Temperatures
90°C
50°C
60°C
Cold
30°C
40°C
for normally soiled white
cottons and linen (e.g.
teacloths, towels, tablecloths,
sheets...).
for normally soiled, colourfast
garments (e.g. shirts, night
dresses, pyjamas....) in linen,
cotton or synthetic fibres and
for lightly soiled white cotton
(e.g.underwear).
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).
Maximum loads
Recommended loads are indicated in
the 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
already have been damaged and the
fabric tends to hole.
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. Remove any residual marks from
white fabrics 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.
18 electrolux washing hints
Only low suds Front load washer
detergents should 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 program (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 program.
If using concentrated powder or liquid
detergents, a program without prewash
must be selected.
Pour liquid detergent into the dispenser
drawer compartment marked
just
before starting the program.
Any fabric softener or starching additives
must be poured into the compartment
marked
before starting the wash
program.
Follow the product manufacturer’s
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.
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.
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

22 electrolux care and cleaning
CARE AND CLEANING
External 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.
Clean the exterior cabinet of the
appliance with soap and water only, and
then dry thoroughly.
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.
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
program.
Use a normal measure of detergent,
must be a powder with biological
properties.
To aid cleaning, the top part of the
additive compartment should be
removed.
care and cleaning electrolux 23
Cleaning the drawer recess
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
programme without any clothes in the
drum.
Cleaning the pump
The pump should be inspected if
the machine does not empty and/or
spin
the machine makes an unusual noise
during draining due to objects such
as safety pins, coins etc. blocking
the pump.
Proceed as follows:
Disconnect the appliance.
If necessary wait until the water has
cooled down.
Open the pump door.
Place a containfer close to the pump
to collect any spillage.
Pull out the emergency emptying
hose, place it in the container and
remove its cap.
When no more water comes out,
unscrew the pump cover and remove
it. Always keep a rag nearby to dry up
spillage of water when removing the
cover.
Remove any objects from the pump
impeller by rotating it.
Put the cap back on the emergency
emptying hose and place the latter
back in its seat.
24 electrolux care and cleaning
Screw the pump cover fully in.
The dangers of freezing
Close the pump door.
If the machine is exposed to temperatures
below 0°C, certain precautions should be
taken.
Turn off the water tap.
Unscrew the inlet hose.
Place the end of the emergency
emptying hose and that of the inlet
hose in a bowl placed on the floor
and let water drain out.
Screw the water inlet hose back on
and reposition the emergency
emptying hose after having put the
cap on again.
When you intend to start the machine
up again, make sure that the room
temperature is above 0°C.
Warning !
When the appliance is in use and
depending on the programme selected
there can be hot water in the pump.
Never remove the pump cover during a
wash cycle, always wait until the
appliance has finished the cycle, and is
empty. When replacing the cover,
ensure it is securely retightened so as to
stop leaks and young children being
able to remove it.
Cleaning the water inlet filter
If your water is very hard or contains
traces of lime deposit, the water inlet
filter may become clogged.
It is therefore a good idea to clean it
from time to time.
Turn off the water tap. Unscrew the
water inlet hose. Clean the filter using a
hard bristle brush. Tighten up the inlet
hose.
Emergency emptying out
If the water is not discharged, proceed
as follows to empty out the machine:
pull out the plug from the power
socket;
close the water tap;
if necessary, wait until the water has
cooled down;
open the pump door;
place a bowl on the floor and place
the end of the emergency emptying
hose into the bowl. Remove its cap.
The water should drain by gravity
into the bowl. When the bowl is full,
put the cap back on the hose. Empty
the bowl. Repeat the procedure until
water stops flowing out;
clean the pump if necessary as
previously described;
replace the emergency emptying hose
in its seat after having plugged it;
screw the pump cover again and
close the door.

Positioning
Install the machine on a flat hard floor.
Make sure that air circulation around the
machine is not impeded by carpets,
rugs etc. Check that the machine does
not touch the wall or cupboard units.
Carefully level by
screwing the
adjustable feet in
or out.
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 drainage
The end of the drain hose can be
positioned in three ways:
Hooked over the edge of a sink using
the plastic hose guide supplied with
the machine.
Never place cardboard, wood or similar
materials under the machine to
compensate for any unevenness in the
floor.
Water inlet
Connect the water inlet hose to a tap
with 3/4” BSP thread.
Use the hose supplied with the washing
machine. DO NOT USE OLD HOSES.
In this case, make
sure the end
cannot come
unhooked when
the machine is
emptying.
This could be done by tying it to the tap
with a piece of string or attaching it to
the wall.
The other end of the inlet hose which
connects to the machine can be turned
in any direction.
In a sink drain pipe branch. This
branch must be above the trap so that
the bend is at least 60 cm above the
ground.
Simply loosen the fitting, rotate the hose
and retighten the fitting, making sure
there are no water leaks.
Directly into a drain pipe at a height
of not less than 60 cm and not more
than 90 cm.
The end of the drain hose must always
be ventilated, i.e. the inside diameter of
the drain pipe must be larger than the
outside diameter of the drain hose.
The drain hose must not be kinked. Run
it along the floor; only the part near the
drainage point must be raised.

For the correct functioning of the
machine the drain hose must remain
hooked on the proper support piece
situated on the top part of back side
of the appliance.

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 soiling can be removed;
the laundry can then be washed at a
lower temperature.
Measure out detergent according to
the water hardness, the degree of
soiling and the quantity of laundry
being washed.
