Helpful hints and tips
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.
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.
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.
Removing stains
Stubborn stains may not be removed by just water and detergent. It is therefore advisable to treat them prior to
1) do not use acetone on artificial silk
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
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 acetone1), 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
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 acetone1), 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.
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
• 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 liquid detergents, a programme without prewash
must be selected.
Your appliance incorporates a recirculation system which
allows an optimal use of the concentrated detergent.
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.
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.
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. If the water hardness
degree is medium or high we suggest you to add a water
softener following always the manufacturer’s instructions.
When the degree of hardness is soft, readjust the quantity
of the detergent.
First use
• Ensure that the electrical and water connections
comply with the installation instructions.
• Remove the polystyrene block and any material
from the drum.
• Pour 2 litres of water into the main wash comof the detergent drawer in order to
activate the ECO valve. Then run a cotton cycle at
the highest temperature without any laundry in
the machine, to remove any manufacturing residue from the drum and tub. Pour 1/2 a measure
of detergent into the main wash compartment and
start the machine.
Acoustic signals
The machine is provided with an acoustic device, which
sounds in the following cases:
• at the end of the cycle
• if there is a fault.
By pressing the 4 and 5 buttons simultaneously for about
6 seconds, the acoustic signal is deactivated (except if
there is a fault). By pressing these 2 buttons again, the
acoustic signal is reactivated.
Child safety lock
This device permits you to leave the appliance unattended
so you do not need to worry that children might be injured
by or cause damage to the appliance. This function remains enabled also when the washing machine is not

clean the recess, ensuring
that all washing powder
residue is removed from
the upper and lower part of
the recess.
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.
External cleaning
Replace the drawer and run the rinse programme without any clothes in the drum.

nearby because some water may flow.
• Clean the filter in the valve with a stiff brush or with
the piece of cloth.
If the appliance cannot drain the water, proceed as follows
to empty out the machine:
1. pull out the plug from the power socket;
2. close the water tap;
3. if necessary, wait until the water has cooled down;
4. open the pump door;
5. place a container on the floor below the recess of the
drain pump;
6. press the two levers and pull forward the drainage
duct to let the water flow out;
7. when the container is full of water, put the drainage
duct back again and empty the container;
repeat this operation until water stops flowing out;
if necessary clean the pump (refer to the section
‘Cleaning the pump’ );
9. close the drain pump door.
When you drain the water with the emergency drain procedure, you must activate again the drain system:
Put 2 litres of water in the main wash compartment
of the detergent dispenser.

An option or a programme that ends with the water still in the tub or a that
eliminates all the spinning phases has been selected.
• Select the draining or spinning programme.
The laundry is not evenly distributed in the drum.
• Redistribute the laundry.
There is water on the floor:
Too much detergent or unsuitable detergent (creates too much foam) has been
• Reduce the detergent quantity or use another one.
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
• Check the water inlet hose connection.
The drain or inlet hose is damaged.
• Replace it with a new one.
The filter has not been properly screwed in after cleaning action.
• Screw the filter fully in.
Unsatisfactory washing results:
Too little detergent or unsuitable detergent has been used.
• Increase the detergent quantity or use another one.

The laundry is not evenly distributed in the drum.
• Redistribute the laundry.
Maybe there is very little laundry in the drum.
• Load more laundry.
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 10 minutes, the laundry is still
not evenly distributed in the drum, the machine will not spin. In this case, redistribute the load manually and select the spin programme.
• Redistribute the laundry.
The load is too small.
• Add more items, redistribute the load manually and then select the spinning
The machine makes an unusual
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.

Standard programmes for the Energy Label consumption
The cotton 60 °C economy and cotton 40 °C economy are
the standard cotton programmes for normally soiled cotton laundry. They are suitable to clean normally soiled
cotton laundry and they are the most efficient programmes
in terms of combined energy and water consumption for
washing that type of cotton laundry.
They agree with EN60456.
The actual water temperature may differ from the declared cycle temperature.
All transit bolts and packing must be removed before using the appliance.
You are advised to keep all transit devices so that they can
be refitted if the machine ever has to be transported again.
After removing all the
packaging, carefully lay
machine on it's back to remove the polystyrene base
from the bottom.
Remove the power supply
cable and the hoses from
the hose holders on the
rear of the appliance.
Rubber feet kit (4055126249)
Available from your authorized dealer.
The rubber feet are particularly recommended on floating,
slippery and wooden floors.
Mount the rubber feet to prevent vibration, noises and displacement of the appliance during operation.
Read carefully the instructions supplied with the kit.
Unscrew the three bolts.
Slide out the relevant plastic spacers.
Open the porthole and remove the polystyrene
block fitted on the door
Fill the smaller upper hole
and the two large ones
with the corresponding
plastic plug caps supplied
in the bag containing the
instruction booklet.
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 other kitchen units. 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.
Any necessary adjustment can be made with a spanner.
Accurate levelling prevents vibration, noise and displacement of the machine during operation. Never place cardboard, wood or similar materials under the machine to
compensate for any unevenness in the floor.
Water inlet
• This appliance must be connected to a cold water
• Before connecting up the appliance 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
• Do not use the hose from your previous appliance to connect to water supply.
The inlet hose is supplied and can been found inside the
machine drum.
Open the porthole and extract the inlet hose.
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.
Set the hose correctly by loosening the ring nut.
Connect the hose to a tap
with a 3/4” thread.
If necessary, check the
setting with a spirit level.
• After positioning the inlet hose, be sure to tighten
the ring nuts again to prevent leaks.
• 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.
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.
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. This fault is shown by a red sector in the window «A». Should this occur, turn the water tap off and
refer to your Service Centre to replace the hose.
In a sink drain pipe branch. This branch must be above
the trap so that the bend is at least 60 cm above the
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.
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

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.
