Useful advice for users
Tips on using your domestic appliance in the most
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 maximum loads shown below:
Cotton and linen
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

EXTRA RINSE button
This function will allow an extra rinse or more water added at the rinse stage – depending on the programme selected. This is particularly important for avoiding skin irritation from detergent residues for people with particularly sensitive skin.
The extra rinse button is also recommended when washing heavily soiled fabrics, requiring the use of a lot of detergent, or when washing items made of towelling, whose fibres have a greater tendency to retain detergent.
WASH TEMPERATURE selector
Can be turned in either direction
This washing machine is equipped with this device for
setting the wash temperature you want. We recommend
that the temperature shown on the label inside garments
should never be exceeded.
The most suitable temperature and cycle for each type of
fabric is shown in the programme guide.
To protect fabrics, if the variable temperature dial has
accidentally been set too high than stated in the
programme guide, the machine will lower the temperature automatically.
Note: never turn the dial
The tables in the washing section describe the various programmes and give the number or symbol to select for them.
IMPORTANT : IF YOU NEED TO CHANGE A PROGRAMME THAT HAS ALREADY STARTED – SWITCH OFF THE MACHINE BY THE ON / OFF BUTTON AND THEN MOVE THE PROGRAMME DIAL TO THE CORRECT POSITION. IF YOU DO NOT PRESS “OFF” BEFOREHAND, THE DIAL WILL AUTOMATICALLY MOVE TO ITS INITIAL POSITION.
The detergent draw is split into 4 compartments:
-the first, labelled "I" , is for prewash detergent or for RAPID 32’ programme detergent
-the second, 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.
Note: some detergents are difficult to remove. For these, we recommend you use the special dispenser which is placed in the drum.
- the third, labelled " ", is for bleaching agents.
The machine is programmed to automatically take up the bleach during the first rinse in cotton cycles.
Note: only put liquid products in the third and fourth compartments.
- the fourth, labelled " " is for special additives, fabric softeners, fragrances, starch, brighteners etc.
The machine is programmed to automatically take up additives during the final rinse stage for all wash cycles.
The washing machine has 3 different programme groups according to type of wash,
temperature and duration for handling the various types of fabric (see wash programme
1. Colourfast fabric
The programmes are designed for maximum washing and rinsing.
With spin stages in between, they guarantee the laundry is rinsed perfectly.
The final spin stage ensures laundry is wrung out as much as possible.
2. Mixed fibres and synthetics
Washing and rinsing performance is optimised through drum rotation
speeds and water level. The delicate action spin minimises creasing.
3. Delicate fabrics, wool & extra delicate programme
This group of programmes have been specially designed to wash
the most delicate fabrics
Use the Delicate programme for delicate fabrics
Use the Woollens programme only for machine washable wool
Use the extra delicate programme for any machine washable handwash garments
Automatic Variable Capacity
The washing machine is fitted with an automatic reduction in consumption system (known as
Automatic Variable Capacity).
This system enables the machine to use the amount of water needed to wash and rinse the
laundry in relation to the particular load.
This results in a reduction in the amount of water used and electricity needed to heat it to the
minimum required, without in any way compromising the washing and rinsing performance.
In fact the amount of water and electricity used will always be appropriate for the amount of
The washing machine therefore ensures you achieve excellent washing results whilst
respecting the environment and saving you money.
Sorting the laundry
-It is recommended you wash only items which are machine washable with water and detergent and not
-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
Delicates and wool
Wash by hand
Items labelled with the following symbol are not suitable for machine washing:
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
, and must also be labelled
-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.

Get the best results from your new Candy machine
To ensure you get the best results from your new Candy machine it is important to use the right detergent in your everyday wash. There are many detergents available in the market and making a choice from the wide range available can often be confusing.
At Candy we regularly test many different types of detergent to assess which give the best wash results in our machines. We found only one brand always lives up to our exacting standards and provides outstanding cleaning across a broad range of dirt and stains, as well as providing high levels of fabric care. That’s why Candy gave Ariel their official seal of approval.

Cleaning and routine maintenance
Do not use
- Cleaning the drawer compartments. - Cleaning the filter.
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.
Remove and clean.
3) After cleaning, replace the filter.
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.
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.
