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 maximum loads shown below:

Cotton and linen

6

kg

Mixed

2

kg

Very delicate

1,5

kg

Wool

1

kg

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

QUICK 2 WASH button

D

 

Press the button to select or deselect this function

Pressing this button reduces the time of the wash programme by a maximum of 50 minutes depending on the programme and the temperature selected. The QUICK 2 WASH button can be used for washing loads of 1 to 6 kg. This option may only be utilised on cottons and synthetics programmes.

QUICK 2 IRON button

E

 

Press the button to select or deselect this function

The QUICK 2 IRON function (not available on COTTONS programmes) minimizes creases as much as possible with a uniquely designed anti-creasesystem that is tailored to specific fabrics.

MIXED FABRICS and SYNTHETICS - the water is gradually cooled throughout the final two rinses with no spinning and then a delicate spin assures the maximum relaxation of the fabrics. DELICATE FABRICS (excluding WOOLLENS programme) – final two rinses with no spinning and then the fabrics are left in water until it is time to unload. When you are ready to unload, press the QUICK 2 IRON button – this will drain and spin ready for emptying.

WOOLLENS - at the end of the final rinse, the fabrics are left in water until it is time to unload. When you are ready to unload, press the QUICK 2 IRON button – this will drain and spin ready for emptying.

If you do not want to spin the clothes and activate drain only:

Turn the appliance off by pressing the on / off button;

Select Programme Z;

Switch on the appliance again by pressing the on / off button.

VARIABLE SPIN SPEED selector

 

H

 

 

Can be turned in either direction

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The spin stage plays a very important role in preparing the laundry for efficient drying and your model offers maximum flexibility to suit all your requirements.

The selector can be turned to reduce the maximum spin speed, right up to eliminating the spin completely (position ). In programmes for mixed fibres, synthetics and delicates, the washing machine automatically lowers the spin speed.

In order not to damage fabrics, it is not possible to increase this spin speeds.

Note: this model is fitted with an electronic device that checks the load is balanced correctly. If the load is slightly unbalanced the machine will re-balanceit automatically to carry out the normal spin.

If, after several attempts, balance is not restored, a reduced spin speed will be used.

If loads are seriously unbalanced the spin stage will be cancelled.

This helps limit vibration, reduce noise output and improve the washing machine’s lifespan.

WASH TEMPERATURE selector

I

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

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 higher than that stated in the

 

 

 

 

 

 

programme guide, the machine will lower the temperature automatically.

Detergent drawer

A

The detergent draw is split into 4 compartments:

-the first, labelled "I", is for prewash detergent or for CYCLE 32 minutes detergent

-the second, labelled "II", is for main wash detergent

cl

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

- 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.

Programme selector

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 guide).

1.

Colourfast fabric

COTTONS

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

SYNTHETICS

Washing and rinsing performance is optimised through drum rotation

 

speeds and water level. The delicate action spin minimises creasing.

 

3.

Delicate fabrics, wool & hand washing

DELICATES

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 hand wash programme for any machine washable handwash garments

Main wash

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 washing.

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 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.

Please read these notes

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

In programmes shown in the wash guide, automatic bleaching is possible by pouring the liquid bleach into the detergent draw.

* Programmes according to CENELEC EN 60456.

The variable temperature selector allows a reduction in the wash temperature. For example, an intense cottons cycle can be washed in cold water simply by moving the dial to the tap symbol.

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 selector.

CYCLE 32 MINUTES

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

The washing temperature can be reduced by using the control knob I. The maximum quantity of detergent that can be used is marked on the enclosed 32 minute measuring scoop.

The detergent must be placed in the CYCLE 32 MINUTES compartment (marked I) in the detergent dispenser. Do not use fabric conditioner with this programme.

For mixed, synthetics and very delicate fabrics that are heavily soiled a prewash cycle may be selected using the CYCLE 32 MINUTES programme (the detergent must be placed in the compartment marked I) before selecting the main wash programme.

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.

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.

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)Loosen the screw which holds the filter in place.

Turn anti-clockwiseuntil it stops in the vertical position.

Remove and clean.

3) 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.

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.
