The option buttons should be selected before pressing the "Start/Pause" button.

COLD WASH button

D

 

By pressing this button it is possible to transform every programme into a cold washing one, without modifying other characteristics (water level, times, rythmes, etc...).

Curtains, small carpets, man made delicate fabrics, non coulor fast garments can be safely washed thanks to this new device.

“ALLERGY CARE” button

E

 

By pressing this button you can activate a special new wash cycle in the Cotton andMixed Fabrics programs, thanks to the new Sensor System. This option treats with care the fibres of garments and the delicate skin of those who wear them.

The load is washed in a much larger quantity of water and this, together with the new combined action of the drum rotation cycles, where water is filled and emptied, will give you garments which have been cleaned and rinsed to perfection. The amount of water in the wash is increased so that the detergent dissolves perfectly, ensuring an efficient cleaning action. The amount of water is also increased during the rinse procedure so as to remove all traces of detergent from the fibres. This function has been specifically designed for people with delicate and sensitive skin, for whom even a very small amount of detergent can cause irritation or allergy.

You are advised to also use this function for children’s clothing and for delicate fabrics in general, or when washing garments made of towelling, where the fibres tend to absorb a greater quantity of detergent. To ensure the best performance for your wash, this function is always activated on the Delicates and Woollens/Hand wash programs.

DELAY START button

F

 

Appliance start time can be set with this button, delaying the start by 3, 6 or 9 hours.

Proceed as follows to set a delayed start:

Select a programme (Wait that a “Spin” indicator light will go on).

Press "Delay Start" button (each time the button is pressed the start will be delayed by 3, 6 or 9 hours respectively and the corresponding light will blink).

Press "Start/Pause" to commence the Delay Start operation (the indicator light associated with the selected Delay Start time stops blinking and remains ON).

At the end of the required time delay the programme will start.

To cancel the Delay Start function :

press the "Delay Start" button until the indicator lights will be off and the programme can be started manually using the "Start/Pause" button or switch off the appliance by turning the programme selector to "OFF" position.

Warning: If there is any break in the power supply while the machine is operating, a special memory stores the selected programme and, when the power is restored, it continues where it left off.

SPIN SELECTION button

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.

MIXED AND SYNTHETIC FABRICS

The main wash and the rinse gives 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.

SPECIAL DELICATE FIBRES

This is a new wash cycle which alternates washing and soaking and is particularly recommended for very delicate fabrics.

The wash cycle and rinses are carried out with high water levels to ensure best results.

WOOLMARK PROGRAMME

The special cycle, certified by WOOLMARK, enables to thoroughly wash garments without damaging them. The cycle comprises of alternate periods of activity and pauses. The programme has a maximum temperature of 30° and concludes with 3 rinses and a short spin.

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 3 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.

SPECIAL “SPIN” PROGRAMME

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

DRAIN ONLY

This programme drains out the water.

“MIX & WASH SYSTEM” PROGRAMME

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

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

to wash with a considerable energy saving.

The "MIX & WASH SYSTEM " 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).

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 mixNON-FASTCOLOUREDS fabrics.

DAILY WASH 40°C – FAST 44’

A complete washing cycle (wash, rinse and spin), able to wash in approximately 44 minutes:

-a maximum load of 3-3,5kg;

-lightly soiled fabrics (cotton and mixed fabrics)

We recommend, with this programme, a 30% detergent loading dose (compared to the normal one), in order to avoid detergent waste.

DAILY WASH 30°C – FAST 32’

A complete washing cycle (wash, rinse and spin), able to wash in approximately 32 minutes:

-a maximum load of 2-2,5kg;

-lightly soiled fabrics (cotton and mixed fabrics)

We recommend, with this programme, a 20% detergent loading dose (compared to the normal one), in order to avoid detergent waste.

Auto half load

The washing machine is fitted with a self adjusting water level system.

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 of the water and electricity used, 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 clothes load. The washing machine automatically ensures excellent washing results at minimum cost whilst respecting the environment .

Detergent drawer

P

 

The detergent drawer is split into 3 compartments:

- the compartment labelled "1" is for prewash detergent;

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

- the compartment labelled "2" is for main wash detergent.

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.

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 “2” of the drawer.

For heavily soiled laundry, choose a programme with prewash.

Put 1/4 of the detergent in compartment “1”, 3/4 in compartment“2” of the drawer.

When using water softeners, first put in the detergent, then add the softener to compartment “2”. 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.
