Main wash

Sorting the laundry

-It is recommended you wash only items which are machine washable with water and detergent and not dry-cleanitems.

-If you need to wash rugs, bedspreads or other heavy items, it is best not to spin them.

-Sort the laundry according to fabric type, degree of soiling and wash temperature: Always follow the wash care advice on the garment label for the most suitable care and treatment of the laundry

Laundry for hot wash

Coloured, easy-carematerialsDelicates and wool

Wash by hand

Items labelled with the following symbol are not suitable for machine washing:

Dry clean

For very delicate items, such as net curtains, underwear, tights etc., you are advised to use a laundry net or wash bag.

-Woollen items must be labelled with the "Pure New Wool" symbol to be washed in the machine , and must also be labelled"non-matting"or "machine washable".

-Colour often leaks from new coloured items.

This can then colour other lighter items being washed.

We therefore recommend that coloured items should be washed for the first time separately.

For future washes, colourfast items can only be washed with whites up to 40°C.

Note: when sorting laundry

- check there are no metal objects in the laundry (such as paper clips, safety pins, pins, coins etc...);

- button up pillowcases, fasten zips, hook & eye fasteners, belts and long dressing gown cords;

- remove curtain hooks;

- pay close attention to the labels on items

- if you notice stubborn stains whilst sorting the laundry, remove them using a special detergent or a special stain remover.

-We recommend that you do not do a full load of towelling items only as these become too heavy since they absorb a lot of water.

DRYING

DON’T DRY GARMENTS MADE FROM FOAM RUBBER OR FLAMMABLE MATERIALS.

IMPORTANT:

THIS DRYER CAN ONLY BE USED FOR LAUNDRY WHICH HAS BEEN WASHED AND SPIN DRIED.

WARNING:

Indications given are general, therefore some practice is needed for the best drying results. We recommend setting a lower drying time than indicated, when first using, so as to establish the degree of dryness required. We recommend not to dry fabrics that fray easily, such as rugs or garments with a deep pile, to avoid air duct clogging.

The water is then conveyed to the drain circuit, wich is sealed and therefore, no steam can be released outside.

Important

Never open the door after the drying cycle has begun - wait until the cool down period provided for by the cycle.

Only dry pre-spunlaundry

The washer/dryer can perform two types of drying:

1 Cotton, terry towelling, linen, hemp fabrics, etc... symbol on programme dial (N). 2 Mixed fabrics (synthetics/cotton), synthetic fabricssymbol on programme dial (N).

22

Automatic washing/drying

Warning: only a maximum 4 kg of dry laundry can be loaded.

Refer to the list of washing programmes according to fabrics to be washed (e.g. very dirty cotton) and without pressing Start button, prepare wash as described:

Cleaning and routine maintenance

Do not use alcohol-basedscourers and / or thinners on the outside of your washing machine, just a wipe with a damp cloth will suffice. The washing machine needs very little maintenance: - Cleaning the drawer compartments.

- Cleaning the filter.

- Cleaning the door glass.

Cleaning the drawer compartments

Even if it is not strictly necessary, it is good to clean the compartments for bleaching detergents and additives occasionally.

A)To do this you just need to pull them out firmly, but without forcing them.

B)Clean everything in the compartment under running water.

C)Put everything back in its proper place.

Cleaning the filter

The washing machine is fitted with a special filter for handling large deposits which could block the discharge hose (coins, buttons etc.) and which can, therefore, be easily retrieved.

We recommend that the filter be cleaned at least once a month.

The cleaning operation is as follows:

1)Ease off the plinth cover as shown in picture.

2)Use the base as a tray to collect left over water in filter.

3)Loosen the screw which holds the filter in place.

Turn the filter anti-clockwiseuntil it stops in the vertical position.

Remove and clean.

4) After cleaning, replace the filter and lock by tightening the filter screw. Then follow all procedures described above in reverse order.

Attention: if the filter needs cleaning while there is washing still in the drum, follow the instructions on the following page to empty the water. This will prevent excessive loss of water via the filter.

26

Cleaning the door glass

Regularly clean the door glass with a damp cloth. A build up of soiling and

residues from the water may result in water leaking from the door.

Do not use abrasive cleaners as they can scratch the surface.

Transporting the appliance or long periods when appliance is not in use

If the appliance is being transported or is out of use for long periods in unheated places, all remaining water must be completely removed from the hoses.

Ensure mains power is off, then unclip the hose and point it downwards into a basin until all the water has emptied out.

When finished, repeat the operation in the reverse order.

The machine makes a different noise when spinning! This is because it has a brush motor for better performance.

Only a small level of water can be seen in the drum! This is because new machines do not use much water, yet achieve the same standard of washing and rinsing.

Note:

The use of environmentally-friendly,phosphate-freedetergents can have the following effects:

-waste water from rinsing may be cloudier because of the presence of zeolites held in suspension, without the rinse performance being adversely affected;

-presence of white powder (zeolites) on laundry after washing, which is not absorbed by the fabric and does not alter the colour of the fabric.

-The presence of foam in the final rinsing water is not necessarily an indication of poor rinsing.

-Anionic surfactants used in washing detergent formulae often prove to be difficult to remove from the laundry itself and, even in small quantities, can still cause considerable foam production.

-Carrying out more rinse cycles does not serve any purpose in such cases.
