28 Preparing the wash cycle

Preparing the wash cycle

Sorting out the laundry

Follow the wash code symbols on each garment label and the manufacturer’s washing instructions. Sort the laundry as follows: whites, coloureds, synthetics, delicates, woollens.

Temperatures

95° or 90°

60°/50°

40°-30°- Cold

for normally soiled white cottons and linen (e.g. tea cloths, towels, tablecloths, sheets...).

for normally soiled, colour fast garments (e.g. shirts, night dresses, pyjamas....) in linen, cotton or synthetic fibres and for lightly soiled white cotton (e.g. underwear).

for delicate items (e.g. net curtains), mixed laundry including synthetic fibres and woollens bearing the label «pure new wool, machine washable, non-shrink».

Before loading the laundry

Never wash whites and coloureds together. Whites may lose their “whiteness” in the wash.

New coloured items may run in the first wash; they should therefore be washed separately the first time.

Make sure that no metal objects are left in the laundry (e.g. hair clips, safety pins, pins).

Button up pillowcases, close zip fasteners, hooks and poppers. Tie any belts or long tapes.

Remove persistent stains before washing.

Rub particularly soiled areas with a special detergent or detergent paste. Treat curtains with special care. Remove hooks or tie them up in a bag or net.

Preparing the wash cycle 29

Maximum loads

Recommended loads are indicated in the washing programme charts.

General rules:

Cotton, linen: drum full but not too tightly packed;

Synthetics: drum no more than half full;

Delicate fabrics and woollens: drum no more than one third full.

Washing a maximum load makes the most efficient use of water and energy.

For heavily soiled laundry, reduce the load size.

Removing stains

Stubborn stains may not be removed by just water and detergent. It is therefore advisable to treat them prior to washing.

Blood: treat fresh stains with cold water. For dried stains, soak overnight in water with a special detergent then rub in the soap and water.

Oil based paint: moisten with benzine stain remover, lay the garment on a soft cloth and dab the stain; treat several times.

Dried grease stains: moisten with turpentine, lay the garment on a soft surface and dab the stain with the fingertips and a cotton cloth.

30 Preparing the wash cycle

Rust: oxalic acid dissolved in hot water or a rust removing product used cold. Be careful with rust stains which are not recent since the cellulose structure will already have been damaged and the fabric tends to hole.

Mould stains: treat with bleach, rinse well (whites and fast coloureds only).

Grass: soap lightly and treat with bleach (whites and fast coloureds only).

Ball point pen and glue: moisten with acetone (*), lay the garment on a soft cloth and dab the stain.

Lipstick: moisten with acetone as above, then treat stains with methylated spirits. Treat any residual marks with bleach.

Red wine: soak in water and detergent, rinse and treat with acetic or citric acid, then rinse. Treat any residual marks with bleach.

Ink: depending on the type of ink, moisten the fabric first with acetone (*), then with acetic acid; treat any residual marks on white fabrics with bleach and then rinse thoroughly.

Tar stains: first treat with stain remover, methylated spirits or benzine, then rub with detergent paste.

(*) do not use acetone on artificial silk.

Detergents and additives

Good washing results also depend on the choice of detergent and use of the correct quantities to avoid waste and protect the environment.

Although biodegradable, detergents contain substances which, in large quantities, can upset the delicate balance of nature.

The choice of detergent will depend on the type of fabric (delicates, woollens, cottons, etc.), the colour, washing temperature and degree of soiling.

All commonly available washer-dryer detergents may be used in this appliance:

powder detergents for all types of fabric,

powder detergents for delicate fabrics (60°C max) and woollens,

liquid detergents, preferably for low temperature wash programmes (60°C max) for all types of fabric, or special for woollens only.

The detergent and any additives must be placed in the appropriate compartments of the dispenser drawer before starting the wash programme.

If using concentrated powder or liquid detergents, a programme without prewash must be selected.

The washer-dryer incorporates a recirculation system which allows an optimal use of the concentrated detergent.

Preparing the wash cycle 31

Pour liquid detergent into the dispenser drawer compartment marked just before starting the programme.

Any fabric softener or starching additives must be poured into the compartment marked before starting the wash programme.

Follow the product manufacturers’ recommendations on quantities to use and do not exceed the «MAX» mark in the detergent dispenser drawer.

Quantity of detergent to be used

The type and quantity of detergent will depend on the type of fabric, load size, degree of soiling and hardness of the water used.

Follow the product manufacturers’ instructions on quantities to use.

Use less detergent if:

you are washing a small load,

the laundry is lightly soiled,

large amounts of foam form during washing. For the stain treatment before the washing cycl, follow the product manufacturers’ instructions on detergent quantities. If you use any specific product to remove the stains, you must start the cycle of washing immediately .

Degrees of water hardness

Water hardness is classified in so-called “degrees” of hardness. Information on hardness of the water in your area can be obtained from the relevant water supply company, or from your local authority.

Note: A water softener must be added when water has a medium-high degree of hardness (from degree of hardness II). Follow the manufacturer’s instructions. The quantity of detergent can then always be adjusted to degree of hardness I (= soft).

32 Preparing the drying cycle

Preparing the drying cycle

As a dryer, the machine works on the condensation principle.

Therefore, the water tap must be open and the drain hose must drain water into a sink or into the drain pipe, even during the drying cycle.

Attention!

Before starting the drying programme, reduce the loads of washed laundry, in order to obtain good performances.

Laundry not suitable for drying

Particularly delicate items such as synthetic curtains, woollen and silk, garments with metal inserts, nylon stockings, bulky garments such as anoraks, bedcovers, quilts, sleeping bags and duvets must not be machine dried.

Avoid drying dark clothes with light coloured fluffy items such as towels as these can attract the fluff.

Remove the laundry when the appliance has finished drying.

To avoid a static charge when drying is completed, use either a fabric softener when you are washing the laundry or a fabric conditioner specifically for tumble dryers.

Garments padded with foam-rubber or materials similar to foam-rubber must not be machine dried; they represent a fire hazard.

Also, fabrics containing residues of setting lotions or hair sprays, nail solvents or similar solutions must not be machine dried in order to avoid the formation of harmful vapours..

Preparing the drying cycle

33

Gargment’s labels

For drying, follow the indications given on the manufacturer’s labels:

May be tumble dried

Drying at high temperature

Drying at reduced temperature Do not tumble dry.

Drying cycle duration

The drying time may vary depending on:

speed of the final spin

dryness degree required (extra dry, iron dry, cupboard dry)

type of laundry

wheight of the load size

The average drying time for a timed drying are indicated in the «Drying programmes» chapter. The experience will help you to dry your laundry in a more suitable way, according to the different fabrics. Take note of the duration drying time of the already performed cycles.

Additional drying

If the laundry is till dump at the end of the drying programme, select again a short drying.

Attention! Do not over dry the laundry in order to avoid creasing of fabrics or garment’s shrinking .

34 Care and cleaning

Care and cleaning

You must DISCONNECT the appliance from the electricity supply, before you can carry out any cleaning or maintenance work.

Descaling

The water we use normally contains lime. It is a good idea to periodically use a water softening powder in the machine. Do this separately from any laundry washing, and according to the softening powder manufacturer's instructions.

This will help to prevent the formation of lime deposits.

After each wash

Leave the door open for a while. This helps to prevent mould and stagnant smells forming inside the appliance. Keeping the door open after a wash will also help to preserve the door seal.

Maintenance wash

With the use of low temperature washes it is possible to get a build up of residues inside the drum.

We recommend that a maintenance wash be performed on a regular basis.

To run a maintenance wash:

The drum should be empty of laundry.

Select the hottest cotton wash programme.

Use a normal measure of detergent, must be a powder with biological properties.

External cleaning

Clean the exterior cabinet of the appliance with soap and water only, and then dry thoroughly.

Important! Do not use methylated spirits, solvents or similar products to clean the cabinet.

Detergent dispenser drawer

The detergent dispenser drawer should be cleaned regularly.

1. Remove the detergent dispenser drawer by pulling it firmly.

Care and cleaning 35

2.Remove the conditioner insert from the middle compartment.

3.Clean all parts with water.

4.Put the conditioner insert in as far as it

will go, so that it is firmly in place.

5. Clean all parts of the washing machine, especially the nozzles in the top of the washing-in chamber, with a brush.

6. Insert the detergent dispenser drawer in the guide rails and push it in.

Washing drum

Rust deposits in the drum may occur due to rusting foreign bodies in the washing or tap water containing iron.

Important! Do not clean the drum with acidic descaling agents, scouring agents containing chlorine or iron or steel wool.

1.Remove any rust deposits on the drum with a cleaning agent for stainless steel.

2.Run a washing cycle without any washing to clean off any cleaning agent residues. Programme: COTTONS/LINEN 90° or 95°C, press the button 7, add approx. 1/4 measuring cup of detergent.

Door seal

Check from time to time the door seal and eliminate eventual possible objects that could be trapped in the fold.

Drain pump

The pump should be inspected regularly and particularly if

the machine does not empty and/or spin

the machine makes an unusual noise during draining due to objects such as safety pins, coins etc. blocking the pump.

Proceed as follows:

1.Disconnect the appliance.

2.If necessary wait until the water has cooled down.

3.Open the pump door.

36 Care and cleaning

4.Place a container close to the pump to collect any spillage.

5.Release the emergency emptying hose, place it in the container and remove its cap.

6.When no more water comes out, unscrew the pump and remove it. Always keep a rag nearby to dry up spillage of water when removing the pump.

Care and cleaning 37

7. Remove any objects from the pump impeller by rotating it.

8. Put the cap back on the emergency emptying hose and place the latter back in its seat.

9. Screw the pump fully in.

10. Close the pump door.

Warning!

When the appliance is in use and depending on the programme selected there can be hot water in the pump. Never remove the pump cover during a wash cycle, always wait until the appliance has finished the cycle, and is empty. When replacing the cover, ensure it is securely retightened so as to stop leaks and young children being able to remove it.

Water inlet filter

If you notice that the machine is taking longer to fill, check that the filter in the water inlet hose is not blocked.

1. Turn off the water tap.

2. Unscrew the hose from the tap.

3. Clean the filter in the hose with a stiff brush.

4. Screw the hose back onto the tap.

38 Care and cleaning

Frost precautions

If the machine is installed in a place where the temperature could drop below 0°C, proceed as follows:

1.Close the water tap and unscrew the water inlet hose from the tap.

2.Place the end of the emergency emptying hose and that of the inlet hose in a bowl placed on the floor and let water drain out.

3.Screw the water inlet hose back on and reposition the emergency emptying hose after having put the cap on again.

By doing this, any water remaining in the machine is removed, avoiding ice forming and consequently damage to the appliance.

When you use the machine again, make sure that the ambient temperature is above 0°C.

46 Installation

Positioning and levelling

Install the machine on a flat hard floor.

Make sure that air circulation around the machine is not impeded by carpets, rugs etc.

Before placing it on small tiles, apply a rubber coating.

Never try to correct any unevenness in the floor by putting pieces of wood,

cardboard or similar materials under the machine.

HEC007S

If it is impossible to avoid positioning the machine next to a gas cooker or coalburning stove, an insulating panel covered with aluminium foil on the side facing the cooker or stove, must be inserted between the two appliances.

The machine must not be installed in rooms where the temperature can drop below 0.

The water inlet hose and the drain hose must not be kinked.

Please ensure that when the appliance is installed, it is easily accessible for the engineer in the event of a breakdown.

Carefully level by screwing the adjustable feet in or out. Never place cardboard, wood or similar materials under the machine to compensate for any unevenness in the floor.

Water inlet

An inlet hose is supplied and can be found inside the machine drum.

Do not use the hose from your previous machine to connect to the water supply.

This appliance must be connected to a cold water supply.

1.Open the porthole and extract the inlet hose.

2.Connect the hose with the angled connection to the machine.

Do not place the inlet hose downwards. Angle the hose to the left or right depending on the position of your water tap.

3. Set the hose correctly by loosening the ring nut.

After positioning the inlet hose, be sure to tighten the ring nut again to prevent leaks.

4. Connect the hose to a tap with a 3/4” thread. Always use the hose supplied with the appliance.

The inlet hose must not be lengthened. If it is too shortand you do not wish to

move the tap, you will have to purchase a new, longer hose specially designed

HEC0006

for this type of use.

Installation should comply with local water authority and building regulations

Installation 47

requirements. A minimum water pressure of 0.05 MPa is required for safe operation of the appliance.

If you cannot make the cold water connection direct from the rising mains, you may be able to operate the appliance from your cold water storage system. There should be a minimum distance of between the appliance’s inlet and the bottom of the water storage tank.

Water-stop device

The inlet hose is provided with a water stop device, which protects against damage caused by water leaks in

the hose which could develop due to natural ageing of

the hose. This fault is shown by a red sector in the A window “A”. Should this occur, turn the water tap off

and refer to your Service Centre to replace the hose.

Water drainage

This appliance is designed to be permanently plumbed into your home's drainage system using one of the following methods.

1. Into a drainage standpipe.

Firstly form a hook in the end of the drain hose using the “U” piece” supplied.

Place the drain hose into your standpipe, which should have an internal diameter of approximately

38mm thus ensuring there is an air break between P1199 the drain hose and standpipe.

In the interest of the environment

Washing machines and dishwashers should be connected to the FOUL drainage system, the water will then be taken to a sewage works for treatment before being discharged safely into a river.

It is essential that these appliances are not connected to the surface water drainage system as this water is discharged directly into a river or stream and may cause pollution.

If you require any further advice please contact your local water authority.

Ecological hints

To save water, energy and to help protect the environment, we recommend that you follow these tips:

Normally soiled laundry may be washed without prewashing in order to save detergent, water and time (the environment is protected too!).

The machine works more economically if it is fully loaded.

With adequate pre-treatment, stains and limited soiling can be removed; the laundry can then be washed at a lower temperature.

Measure out detergent according to the water hardness, the degree of soiling and the quantity of laundry being washed.
