Please read these notes

When washing heavily soiled laundry it is recommended the load is reduced to 3 kg maximum.

* Programmes according to CENELEC EN 60456.

The spin speed may also be reduced, to match any guidelines suggested on the fabric label, or for very delicate fabrics cancel the spin completely this option is available with a spin speed button.

When only a limited number of articles have stains which require treatment with liquid bleaching agents, preliminary removal of stain can be carried out in the washing machine.

Pour the bleach into the liquid bleach container, inserted into the compartment marked "II" in the detergent drawer, and set the special programme "RINSE".

When this phase has terminated, turn the programme selector to the "OFF" position, add the rest of the fabrics and proceed with a normal wash on the most suitable programme.

13

Programme selector

For the various types of fabrics and various degrees of dirt the washing machine has 4 different programme bands according to: wash cycle, temperature and length of cycle (see table of washing cycle programmes).

SPECIAL “HAND WASH”

This washing machine also has a gentle Hand Wash programme cycle. This programme allows a complete washing cycle for garments specified as “Hand Wash only” on the fabric care label. The programme has a temperature of 30°C and concludes with 2 rinses and a slow spin.

SPECIAL “RINSE” PROGRAMME

This programme carries out three rinses with a intermediate spin (which can be reduced or excluded by using the correct button). It can be used for rinsing any type of fabric, eg. use after hand-washing.

This programme can be also used during Bleaching (see table of washing cycle programmes).

SPECIAL “FAST SPIN” PROGRAMME

Programme “FAST SPIN” carries out a maximum spin (which can be reduced by using the correct button).

DRAIN ONLY

This programme drains out the water.

14

“MIX & WASH SYSTEM” PROGRAMME

This is an exclusive Candy system and involves 2 great advantages for the consumer:

•to be able to wash together different type of fabrics (e.g. cotton + synthetic etc…) NON-FAST COLOUREDS;

•to wash with a considerable energy saving.

The "Mix & Wash" programme has a temperature of 40°C and alternate dynamic phases (the drum that turns) to static phases (fabrics in soak in phase of rest) with the programme duration that almost reaching the 3 hours.

The energy consumption for the complete cycle is only 850 W/h.

Important:

•the first washing of new coloureds fabrics must be done separately; •in every case, never mix NON-FAST COLOUREDS fabrics.

32 MINUTE RAPID PROGRAMME 50°C

The 32 minute rapid programme allows a complete washing cycle to be carried out in approximately 30 minutes, with up to a maximum load of 2 kg and a temperature of 50°C.

When selecting the "32 minute rapid" programme, please note that we recommend you use only 20% of the recommended quantities shown on the detergent pack.

FUZZY LOGIC

Through every wash phase Fuzzy Logic allows the Activa Smart to monitor information on the wash load in the drum.

So, as soon as the Activa Smart is set in motion it:

adjusts the amount of water required

determines the length of the wash cycle

controls rinsing

according to the type of fabric selected to be washed it:

adjusts the rhythm of drum rotation for the type of fabric being washed

recognises the presence of lather, increasing, if necessary, the amount of water during rinsing

adjusts the spin speed according to the load, thus avoiding any imbalance.

In this way the ACTIVA SMART is able to decide, by itself, the most suitable programme for each individual wash from the hundreds of possible wash combinations.

Fuzzy Logic meets the need for easy use by permitting a simplified programme selection. In fact, the user need only tell the machine the type of fabric in the drum (cotton, mixtures, delicate or woollens) and the degree of soiling, to obtain a perfect wash with the highest level of drying possible with a spin which really cares for your clothes.

15

Detergent drawer

P

The detergent drawer is split into 3 compartments:

- the compartment labelled "I" is for prewash detergent;

- the compartment labelled " " is for special additives, fabric softeners, fragrances, starch, brighteners etc;

-the compartment labelled "II" is for main wash detergent.

If liquid detergents are used, please insert the special container supplied into the compartment marked “II” in the detergent drawer. This ensures that the liquid detergent enters the drum at the right stage of the wash cycle.

This special container must be inserted into the compartment marked "II" in the detergent drawer, also when you wish to use the "RINSE" programme as BLEACHING cycle.

NOTE:

Some Detergents are Difficult to utilise. Ensure to use an in drum dispenser if recommended by the detergent Manufacturer.

Note: only put liquid products in the compartment labelled “ ”. The machine is programmed to automatically take up additives during the final rinse stage for all wash cycles.

Detergents, washing aids and amounts to use

Choice of detergent General purpose detergents

-Powder detergents, for a thorough wash, with bleaching agent, particularly suitable for use in hot wash programmes (60°C and over), for heavily soiled and stained laundry.

-Liquid detergents, particularly suitable for grease stains, such as greasy skin marks, cosmetics and oil.

These detergents are not suitable for washing stained laundry, as they do not contain bleach.

-Biological detergents, not all the products available give a really thorough wash.

Additional laundry aids

-Water softener, means less detergent can be used where water hardness is classed as hard to very hard.

-Prewash substances, for the programmed treatment of stains prior to the main wash. Using them means the subsequent wash can be at a low temperature or withbleach-freedetergents.

-Fabric softener, prevents staticbuild-upin synthetic fabrics and softens fabrics.

If you own a tumble dryer, clothes are softened even without the use of a fabric softener.

Do not put solvents in the washing machine!

Keep detergents and other laundry products out of children’s reach.

Before pouring in the detergent check that there are no foreign bodies in the detergent drawer.

Dosage details are usually shown on the detergent packaging. Follow those instructions.

16

17

Dosages

Only use detergents which are suitable for use in a washing machine.

You will obtain the best results from your wash with the minimum use of chemical products and the best care for your laundry if you take into consideration the degree of soiling as well as the type of detergent to choose.

The amount of detergent to use depends on:

-water hardness: depending on the hardness of the water and the type of detergent used, it is possible to reduce the amount of detergent.

-the degree of soiling: it is possible to reduce the amount of detergent used depending on the degree of soiling.

-amount of laundry: it is possible to reduce the amount of detergent when washing only a small amount of laundry.

Dosage for powder detergent

For normal and low concentration detergents: for normally soiled laundry choose a programme without prewash.

Put the detergent in compartment “II” of the drawer.

For heavily soiled laundry, choose a programme with prewash.

Put 1/4 of the detergent in compartment “I” , 3/4 in compartment“II” of the drawer.

When using water softeners, first put in the detergent, then add the softener to compartment “II” . For highly concentrated detergents not in single dose format, follow what is shown on pack exactly as regards type and amount of dosage.

To avoid the difficulty of checking if the detergent has been taken up, use the dosage aids provided in the detergent packaging.

Liquid detergent dosage

Liquid detergents may be used in accordance with the instructions on the relevant packaging, for all programmes without prewash, by using the special container which is placed in the drum or, for those models that have it, in the special insert for liquid detergents.

Useful advice for users

Tips on using your domestic appliance in the most environmentally-friendlyand economical way

Do a full load in your washing machine

To prevent any possible waste of energy, water or detergent we recommend that you put a full load in your washing machine, not exceed the recommended maximum load size.

Up to 50% energy saving can be made with one full load compared to two half load washes

When is prewashing really needed?

Only with particularly dirty loads!

Energy savings of 5 to 15% are made by not selecting the prewash option for normal soiled laundry.

Which wash temperature should you choose?

Using stain removers before machine washing reduces the need to wash at temperatures over 60°C.

Energy savings of up to 50% can be made by using a 60°C wash temperature rather than 90°C
