Your New Washing Machine
Your new washing machine meets all modern requirements for effective treatment of laundry
with low water, energy and detergent consumption.
●
●
●
●
The programme selector dial combines the
function of programme and temperature selection,
making it easier to set the programme.
The programme progress display shows the
washing phase, the end of the programme and
indicates that the door can be opened.
The special wool programme with its new delicate
wash system treats your woollens with extreme care.
The ECO VALVE allows total use of detergent and
reduces water consumption so saving energy.
In the interest
of the environment
●
●
●
Ecological hints
●
To save water and energy and help protect the
environment, we recommend that you follow these
hints:
● Adjust the quantity of detergent according to the
hardness of your water supply, the amount of
laundry and the degree of soiling.
● A programme without prewash is sufficient for
normally soiled laundry.
● 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, so saving energy.
Materials marked with the symbol
are
recyclable.
Check with your local Council or Environmental
Health Office to see if there are facilities in your area
for re-cycling this appliance.
When the appliance is to be scrapped, cut off the
power supply cable and make the door lock device
unusable to prevent young children from being
trapped inside.
Help to keep your country tidy - use authorised
disposal sites for your old appliance.
How do we help to protect the environment?
We use recycled paper!
Important
Your machine is fitted with a balance control device, which ensures the machine is stable during the spin.
If the wash load appears not to have been spun sufficiently at the end of the wash cycle, because it is not evenly
distributed in the drum, the balance control device may have operated. It will therefore be necessary to redistribute the
wash load manually and select a spin programme. For more detailed information see the section headed "Something
Not Working".

Load the laundry loosely alternating large items with
small ones.
Sort the laundry according to the type of fabric,
colour-fastness and how dirty it is.
Avoid washing unhemmed or torn items as they may
unravel.
Before washing, empty all pockets of small objects
which may have been left inside (coins, keys, screws
etc). as these could damage the drain pump.
When washing curtains, remove the hooks.
Close poppers and zips and fasten loose buttons.
It is essential to wash new coloured items separately
when washing for the first time.
When washing fabrics requiring different wash
temperatures together, always select the lowest
temperature.
White items should not be washed with coloured
items.
Very small items (handkerchiefs, ribbons, socks etc)
should be washed in a washing bag or a pillow case.
Use a good quality detergent suitable for automatic
washing machines.
Use the correct quantities of detergent.
12
For wool, use gentle detergent only in small
quantities.
Bleach is very corrosive; it should be used with care
and kept out of reach of children.
Some stains such as fruit, wine, grass, rust etc. are
difficult to remove and should be treated before
washing with specific products, which can be found
in most household shops. In some cases it may help
to soak the stain before washing with a special presoak product or biological detergent.
Only wool marked “Pure New Wool - washable,
preshrunk” can be washed in the machine using the
wool programme; other types of wool should be
washed in COLD WASH programme (11).
If you have used the machine to wash, rinse or spin
only non-colour fast garments, there may be dye left
in the sump. To ensure any subsequent wash is not
contaminated with the dye, select and carry out a
rinse and spin programme, without any garments, to
ensure that any dye is removed from the sump.
Once you have finished using the machine, you are
advised to unplug it and turn off the water tap.

Which detergent?....
And in which form?
To ensure you obtain the best wash results from your
appliance, it is important to use the right detergent in
your everyday wash, and only detergents recommended
for use in automatic machines.
To maintain the appearance of your clothes and
household textiles and to make them last longer you
should use different types of detergent for different
washes, whether for whites, colours or delicates.
Not only are there different types of detergent, but they
are also available in different forms. Whether you chose
a powder or liquid in traditional or compact form is
your own personal choice.
TRADITIONAL POWDERS
Pour the powder directly into the dispenser drawer. Do
not sprinkle powder onto clothes in the machine drum.
TRADITIONAL LIQUIDS
WHITES
Liquid can be placed in the main wash compartment of
the detergent drawer marked with the symbol
, start
the machine immediately upon placing the detergent in
the dispenser drawer.
Alternatively the detergent is measured into the
specially designed dosing device* which should be
placed on top of the laundry, and at the back of the
machine drum.
We recommend the Ariel product
range which is biological and
designed to provide excellent
cleaning and stain removal even
at low temperatures.
NON BIOLOGICAL
If you prefer to use a non
biological detergent, which does
not contain enzymes we
recommend Fairy. Fairy provides
good cleaning and stain removal.
COMPACT POWDERS AND LIQUIDS
Compact detergents (or concentrates as they are also
known) are available in liquid or powder form, and
generally require a smaller dosage. Follow the
manufacturer’s instructions to ensure the most
economical usage. Pour the detergent directly into the
dispenser drawer, or alternatively measure the detergent
into the specially designed dosing device* which
should be placed on top of the laundry, and at the back
of the machine drum.
COLOUREDS
For coloured items you should use a
detergent which is designed to clean
while maintaining the original colour.
Ariel Color does not contain bleach
and therefore helps to preserve
colours.
* If you use a dosing device in a washer dryer,
please ensure the dosing device/ball is removed
before carrying out a drying programme.
DELICATE ITEMS
FABRIC CONDITIONERS
When washing delicates such as
woollens, you should use a product
which is specially designed to care for
fine fabrics.
Dreft Automatic is suitable for
woollens and other delicates.
These are ideal for improving ‘softness’, and also
reduce static cling on synthetics and make ironing
easier. They are available in two types:
For example Lenor liquid fabric
softener, for use in the washing
machine/washer dryer. The
liquid fabric softener should be
poured into the compartment
marked with the symbol .
Follow the manufacturer’s dosage
instructions and never exceed the
MAX level.
LAUNDRY BLEACH
For additional stain removal you may
wish to use a product such as Ace
Gentle Bleach which is used in addition
to your chosen detergent. Ace is
suitable for all washable fabrics
including silks, woollens and coloureds.
Bounce conditioning sheets for use
in a tumble dryer. We recommend
the conditioning sheets are pinned
(using a safety pin) to an article
of laundry and placed in the
tumble dryer.

Maintenance and Cleaning
Before any maintenance or cleaning is carried out you
must DISCONNECT the appliance from the electricity
supply.
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.
C0066
C0067
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.
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 (such as Ariel Futur).
P0038
Cleaning the pump
The pump should be inspected regularly and particularly
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.
External cleaning
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.
To aid cleaning, the top part of the additive
compartment should be removed.
P1114
• Place a container close to the pump to collect any
spillage.
• Pull out the emergency emptying hose, place it in the
container and remove its cap.

(Nero/Process Black pellicola)
• When no more water comes out, unscrew the pump
cover and remove it. Always keep a cloth nearby to
dry up spillage of water when removing the cover.
Clean the filter using a hard bristle brush.
Tighten up the inlet hose.
P1090
P1115
The dangers of freezing
• Remove any objects from the pump impeller by
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.
rotating it.
• Put the cap back on the emergency emptying hose and
place the latter back in its seat.
Important!
Every time you drain the water through the emergency
emptying hose you must pour 2 litres of water into the
main wash compartment of the detergent drawer and
then run the drain programme. This will activate the
ECO valve avoiding that part of the detergent remains
unused at next washing.
P1117
• Screw the pump cover fully in.
• Close the pump door.
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.
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.

Something Not Working
Certain problems are due to lack of simple maintenance or oversights, which can be solved easily without calling out
an engineer. Before contacting your local Service Force Centre, please carry out the checks listed below.
During machine operation it is possible that the “end” light flashes to indicate that the machine is not working. An
acoustic warning signal is also heard.
• 4 flashes / 4 beeps = door open
• 2 flashes / 2 beeps = the water is not drained
• 1 flash / 1 beep = there is no water filling
Once the problem has been eliminated, press the “start pause” button to restart the programme. If after all checks, the
problem persists, contact your local Service Centre.
IMPORTANT: if you call out an engineer to a fault listed below, or to repair a fault caused by incorrect use or
installation, a charge will be made even if the appliance is under guarantee.

The door has not been closed.
The plug is not properly inserted in the power socket.
There is no supply at the socket
The main fuse or the fuse in the plug has blown.
The selector dial is not correctly positioned and the “start pause”
button has not been depressed.
Ensure the water tap is open.
The filter in the inlet hose is blocked.
The inlet hose may be squashed or kinked.
The door has not been closed.
The end of the drain hose is too low.
The end of the drain hose is submerged in water.
There is no vent in the end of the drain hose.
The drain hose may be squashed or kinked.
The “rinse hold” or “no spin” option has been selected.
The drain pump may be blocked.
The drain hose extension, if fitted, is not correct. Follow the
instructions for connecting to the waste.
The drainage system pipes are blocked.
The wash load is unbalanced: redistribute the clothes inside the drum to
allow the machine to spin.
Too much detergent or unsuitable detergent has been used (creates too
much foam).
Check whether there are any leaks from one of the inlet hose fittings. It
is not always easy to see this as the water runs down the hose; check to
see if it is damp.
The drain hose may be damaged or not securely positioned.
The detergent dispenser drawer or recess is clogged.
The drainage system pipes are blocked.
The cap on the emergency emptying hose has not been replaced after
cleaning the filter.
Too little detergent or unsuitable detergent has been used. An
insufficient amount of detergent leaves the laundry looking grey and
causes lime scale to form.
Stubborn stains have not been treated prior to washing
The correct wash programme has not been selected.
Too much laundry has been placed in the drum.

Symptom
Possible causes
The machine vibrates when spinning
●
●
●
●
●
The door will not open
●
●
●
The internal packing has not been removed.
The machine is in contact with the wall or furniture.
The machine is not stable and level (check diagonally).
The washing load is badly distributed in the drum.
Maybe there is very little laundry in the drum.
The programme is still running.
The door lock has not yet released (the “door” light is still on).
Water in the tub: the door cannot be opened if water is present in the
tub.
Spinning starts late or the machine
does not spin
●
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 the unbalance disappears and normal spinning can resume.
If, after 5 minutes, the laundry is still not evenly distributed in the
drum, the machine will not spin. In this case, redistribute the load
manually and reselect the spin programme.
The machine makes an unusual
noise
●
The machine is fitted with a type of motor which makes an unusual
noise compared with other traditional motors. This new motor ensures
a softer start and more even distribution of the laundry in the drum
when spinning, as well as increased stability of the machine.
No water is visible in the drum
●
Machines based on modern technology operate very economically
using very little water without affecting performance.

Before connecting up the machine to new pipework
or to pipework that has not been used for some time,
run off a reasonable amount of water to flush out any
debris that may have collected in the pipes.
For a correct functioning of the machine the drain
hose must be hooked on the proper support piece
situated on the top of the back side of the appliance.
In the interest of the
environment
Washing machines and dishwashers 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.
Levelling
Level the washing machine by raising or lowering the
feet. The feet may be tight to adjust as they incorporate
a self locking nut, but the machine MUST be level and
stable.
P1051
SHOWER
SINK
Any necessary adjustment can be made with a spanner.
Accurate levelling prevents vibration, noise and
displacement of the machine during operation.
Some vibration is inevitable, especially if mounted on a
wooden floor.
Sprung wooden floors are particularly susceptible to
vibration. For advice, consult a builder. If possible,
always place the machine on a solid floor.
