2 Warnings

Please read the following information. Otherwise, there may be the risk of personal injury or material damage.

Moreover, any warranty and reliability commitment will become void.

General Safety

Never place your machine on a carpet covered floor. Otherwise, lack of airflow from below your machine may cause electrical parts to overheat. This may cause problems with your washing machine.

If the power cable or mains plug is damaged you must call Authorized Service for repair.

Check water hoses for wear. Do not use old/used water inlet hoses. These may cause stains on your laundry.

Fit the drain hose into the waste water system securely to prevent any water leakage and to allow machine to take in and discharge water as required. It is very important that the water intake and drain hoses are not folded, squeezed, or broken when the appliance is pushed into place after it is installed or cleaned.

Your washing machine is designed to continue operating when the power restores after a power interruption.

You cannot cancel any program by pressing the “On/Off button.” The machine will resume its program when the power restores. Press the “Start/Pause/Cancel” button for 3 seconds to cancel the program (See, Cancelling a Program)

There may be some water in your machine when you receive it. This is from the quality control process and is normal. It is not harmful to your machine.

Some problems you may encounter may be caused by the software.

Press “Start/Pause/Cancel” button for 3 seconds to cancel the program set in your machine before calling the authorized service.

First Use

To prepare your machine for washing, carry out your first washing process without loading your machine and with detergent under

“Cottons 90°C” program.

Ensure that the cold water connections has been made correctly when installing your machine.

If the current fuse or circuit breaker is less than 15 Amperes, please have a qualified electrician install a 15 Ampere fuse or circuit breaker.

To make your machine ready for use, please be sure that the tap water supply and water drainage systems are appropriate before calling the authorized service. If they are not, call a qualified plumber to have any necessary arrangements carried out.

Intended use

This product has been designed for home use.

The appliance may only be used for washing and rinsing of textiles that are marked accordingly.

Only detergents, softeners and supplements suitable for washing machines may be used.

Observe the care instructions labelled on textile products and any other instructions given by companies that produce detergents for your machine.

Safety instructions

This appliance must be connected to an earthed outlet protected by a fuse of suitable capacity.

The supply and draining hoses must always be securely fastened and remain in an undamaged state.

Fit the draining hose to a washbasin or waste system securely before starting up your machine. There may be a risk of being scalded due to high washing temperatures!

Never open the door or remove the filter while there is still water in the drum. Otherwise, there may be the

6 EN

risk of flooding and possible injury due to the hot water.

Never force open the locked door!

The door will be ready to open just a few minutes after the washing cycle comes to an end.

Unplug the machine when it is not in use.

Never wash down the appliance with a water hose! There is the risk of electric shock! Always disconnect from the mains by unplugging before cleaning.

Never touch the plug with wet hands.

Never unplug by pulling on the cable, always pull out from the plug only. Do not operate the machine if the power cord or plug is damaged.

Never attempt to repair the machine yourself. Otherwise, you may be putting yours and other’s lives in danger.

For malfunctions that cannot be solved by information in the operating manual:

Turn off the machine, unplug it, turn off the water tap and contact an authorized service agent.

If there are children in your

house...

Electrical appliances may be dangerous for the children. Keep children away from the machine when it is operating. Do not let them tamper with the machine.

Close the door when you leave the area where the machine is located.

Store all detergents in a safe place out of reach of the children.

Electrical connection

Make sure that you have an earthed power outlet socket rated at 13 amps

(minimum).

Attention!

If you use your machine as built-in,the socket must be reachable after

installation, or a separate switch (which can disconnect the two poles) must be used in the installation.

Connect the power cord to the appropriate electrical socket with an

equivalent current rating indicated on the rating plate at the front of the machine behind the kick plate.

After removing the plug from its transit position, please insert the plug seal to prevent water spillage entering the machine.

Electrical requirements

Before you insert the plug into the wall socket make sure that the voltage and the frequency shown in the rating label corresponds to your electricity supply. We recommend that this appliance be connected to the mains supply via a suitable switched and fused socket in a readily accessible position.

Should the mains lead of the appliance become damaged or need replacing at any time, it must be replaced by a

special purpose made mains lead which can only be obtained from a Authorised Service Agent.

B This appliance must be earthed

If the fitted moulded plug is not suitable for your socket, then the plug should be cut off and an appropriate plug fitted.

Destroy the old plug, which is cut off as a plug with a bared cord could cause a shock hazard if inserted into a socket elsewhere in the house.

The moulded plug on this appliance incorporates a 13A fuse. Should the fuse need to be replaced an ASTA approved BS1362 fuse of the same rating must be used. Do not forget to refit the fuse cover. In the event of losing the fuse cover, the plug must not be used until a replacement fuse cover has been fitted. Colour of the replacement fuse cover must be the same colour as that visible on the pin face of the plug. Fuse covers are available from any good electrical store.

Important

Fitting a different plug

As the colours of the wires in the mains lead of this appliance may not correspond with the coloured markings identifying the terminals on your plug,

7 EN

proceed as follows:

1Connect the green - yellow or green

(earth) wire to the terminal in the plug marked ‘E’ or with the symbol f or coloured green and yellow or green.

2Connect the blue (neutral) wire to the terminal in the plug marked ‘N’ or coloured black.

3Connect the brown (live) wire to the terminal in the plug marked ‘L’ or coloured red.

With the alternative plugs a 13A fuse must be fitted either in the plug or adaptor or

in the main fuse box. If in doubt contact a qualified electrician.

3 Installation

Removing packaging reinforcement

Tilt the machine to remove the packaging reinforcement. Remove the packaging reinforcement by pulling the ribbon.

Opening the transportation locks

C Transportation safety bolts must be removed before operating the washing machine! Otherwise, the machine will be damaged!

1.Loosen all the bolts with a spanner until they rotate freely (“C”)

2.Remove transportation safety bolts by turning them gently.

3.Fit the covers (supplied in the bag with the Operation Manual) into the holes on the rear panel. (“P”)

C Keep the transportation safety bolts in a safe place to reuse when the washing machine needs to be moved again in the future.

C Never move the appliance without the transportation safety bolts properly fixed in place!

Appropriate installation location

Install the appliance in environments which have no risk of freezing, in a stable and level position.

C The floor must be capable of carrying the load on it!

C If the washing machine and a drier are placed on top of each other, their approximate weight together may reach 180 kg when they are full.

Important:

Do not place the appliance on top of the power cable.

Keep at least 1cm distance from the edges of other furniture.

Place the machine on a firm surface; do not position it on a long pile rug or such like surfaces.

Adjusting the feet

C Do not use any tools to loosen the lock nuts. Otherwise, they can be damaged.

1.Manually (by hand) loosen the lock nuts on the feet.

2.Adjust them until the machine stands level and firm.

3.Important: Tighten all lock nuts up again.

9 EN

Connecting to the water supply.

Important:

The water supply pressure required to run the machine must be 1-10bar (0,1 – 1 MPa). (Practically, it is necessary to have 10 – 80 liters of water flowing from the tap in one minute to have your machine run smoothly.) Attach a pressure-

reducing valve if the water pressure is higher.

Connect the special hose supplied with the machine to the water intake valves on the machine.

In order to prevent water leakage that may occur at the connection points, there are rubber seals (4 seals for the models with double water inlet and

2 seals for other models) attached to the hoses. These seals should be used at the tap and machine connection ends of the hoses. The

plain end of the hose fitted with a filter must be attached to the tap and the elbowed end must be attached to the machine. Tighten the nuts of the hose well by hand; never use wrenches to tighten the nuts.

Open the taps completely after making the hose connection to check if there is any water leakage at the connection points. Turn off the tap and remove the nut in case of any leakage. Retighten the nut carefully

after checking the seal. To prevent any water leakage and any other damage to be caused by it, keep the taps closed when the machine is not in use.

Models with a single water inlet should not be connected to the hot water tap. Laundry may be damaged or the appliance may switch to protection mode and not work.

When returning the appliance to its place after maintenance or cleaning, care should be taken not to fold, squeeze or block the hoses.

Connecting to the drain

The water discharge hose can be attached to the edge of a washbasin or waste water system. The drain hose should be firmly fitted into the drain as to not loosen in its housing.

Important:

The end of the drain hose can be directly connected to the wastewater drain or to the washbasin. The

fitting must be secured in all types of connections. Your house may be flooded if the hose falls out of its housing during water discharging.

The hose should be attached to a height of at least 40 cm, and 100 cm at most.

In case the hose is elevated after laying it on the floor level or close to the ground (less than 40 cm above the ground), water discharge becomes more difficult

and the laundry may come out wet. Therefore, the heights described in the figure should be followed.

To prevent dirty water refilling the
