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.

**Special programmes for automatic drying

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 on the "OFF" position, add the rest of the fabrics and proceed with a normal wash on the most suitable programme.

15

Programme selector

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

1 RESISTANTS FABRICS

 

COTTONS

The programmes have been designed for a maximum wash and the

 

rinses, with spin intervals, ensure perfect rinsing.

 

The final spin gives more efficient removal of water.

 

COTTON DRYING

 

Drying for cotton, terry towelling, linen, hemp fabrics, etc...

 

2 MIXED AND SYNTHETIC FABRICS

SYNTHETICS

The main wash and rinse gives the best results thanks to the rotation rhythms of the drum and to the water levels.

A gentle spin will mean that the fabrics become less creased.

MIXED DRYING

Drying for Mixed fabrics (synthetics/cotton), synthetic fabrics.

3 SPECIAL DELICATE FIBRES

DELICATES

This is a new wash cycle which alternates washing and soaking and is particularly recommended for very delicate fabrics such as Pure Machine Washable Wool. The wash cycle and rinses are carried out with high water levels to ensure best results.

“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 3 rinses and a slow spin.

4. SPECIALS

SPECIAL “RINSE” PROGRAMME

This programme carries out three rinses with a intermediate spin. 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

DRAIN ONLY

This programme drains out the water.

16

“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.

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.

17

Detergent drawer

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.
