HINTS AND TIPS

THE LAUNDRY LOAD

Divide the laundry in: white, coloured, synthetics, delicates and wool.

Obey the washing instructions that are on the laundry care labels.

Do not wash together white and coloured items.

Some coloured items can discolour with the first wash. We recommend that you wash them separately for the first times.

Button up pillowcases, close zippers, hooks and poppers. Tie up belts.

Empty the pockets and unfold the items.

Turn inside out multilayered fabrics, wool and items with painted illustrations.

Remove hard stains.

Wash with a special detergent heavy soil stains.

Be careful with the curtains. Remove the hooks or put the curtains in a washing bag or pillowcase.

Do not wash in the appliance :

Laundry without hems or with cuts

Underwired bras.

Use a washing bag to wash small items.

A very small load can cause balance problems with the spin phase. If this occurs, adjust manually the items in the tub and start the spin phase again.

STUBBORN STAINS

For some stains, water and detergent is not sufficient.

We recommend that you remove these stains before you put the items in the appliance.

Special stain removers are available. Use the special stain remover that is applicable to the type of stain and fabric.

DETERGENTS AND ADDITIVES

Only use detergents and additives specially made for washing machines.

Do not mix different types of detergents.

To help the environment, do not use more than the correct quantity of detergent.

Obey the instructions that you find on the on packaging of these products.

Use the correct products for the type and colour of the fabric, the programme temperature and the level of soil.

If you use liquid detergents, do not set the prewash phase.

If your appliance has not the detergent dispenser with the flap device, add the liquid detergents with a dosing ball.

WATER HARDNESS

If the water hardness in your area is high or moderate, we recommend that you use a water softener for washing machines. In areas where the water hardness is soft it is not necessary to use a water softener.

To know the water hardness in your area, contact your local water authority. Obey the instructions that you find on the packaging of the products. Equivalent scales measure the water hardness:

German degrees (°dH).

French degrees (°TH).

mmol/l (millimol for each litre - international unit for the hardness of water).

Clarke degrees.

DESCALING

The water we use contains limescale. If it becomes necessary, use a water softener to remove limescales.

Use a special product made for washing machines. Obey the instructions that you find on the packaging of the manufacturer.

Do this separately from the laundry wash.

EXTERNAL CLEANING

Clean the appliance only with soap and warm water. Fully dry all the surfaces.

DOOR SEAL

CAUTION!

Do not use alcohol, solvents or chemical products.

MAINTENANCE WASH

With the low temperature programmes it is possible that some detergent stays in the drum. Make regularly a maintenance wash. To do this:

Empty the laundry from the drum.

Set the hottest cotton wash programme

Use a correct quantity of powder de-

tergent with biological properties. After each wash, keep the door open for a while to prevent mould and to let unpleasant smells go out.

Regularly examine the seal and remove all objects from the inner part.

DRUM

Regularly examine the drum to prevent limescale and rust particles.

Only use special products to remove rust particles from the drum.

To do this:

Clean the drum with special product for stainless steel.

Start a short programme for cotton at the maximum temperature with a small quantity of detergent.

2

ENGLISH 31

6.Put one of the polystyrene packaging elements on the floor behind the appliance. Carefully put down the appliance with the rear side on it. Make sure not to damage the hoses.

7.Remove the polystyrene protection from the bottom.

8.Pull up the appliance in vertical position.

9.Remove the power supply cable and the drain hose from the hose holders.

10.Remove the three bolts. Use the key supplied with the appliance.

11.Pull out the plastic spacers.

32

12. Put the plastic caps in the holes. You can find these caps in the user manual bag.

– We recommend that you keep the packaging and the transit bolts for when you move the appliance.

If the appliance is delivered in the winter months when there are minus temperatures. Store it at room temperature for 24 hours before using for the first time.

POSITIONING AND LEVELLING

• Install the appliance on a flat hard floor.

• Make sure that carpets do not stop the air circulation below the appliance.

• Make sure that the appliance does not touch the wall or other units

• Loosen or tighten the feet to adjust the level. A correct adjustment of the appliance level prevents the vibration, noise and the movement of the

appliance when in operation.

x4

ENGLISH 33

• The appliance must be level and stable.

CAUTION!

Do not put cardboard, wood or equivalent materials below the appliance feet to adjust the level.

THE INLET HOSE

45O

35O

Connect the hose to the appliance. Turn the inlet hose only left or right. Loose the ring nut to set it in the correct position.

Connect the water inlet hose to the cold water tap with 3/4 thread.

CAUTION!

Make sure that there are no leaks from the couplings.

Do not use an extension hose if the inlet hose is too short. Contact the service centre for the replacement of the inlet hose.

34

Water-stop device

The inlet hose has a water stop device. This device prevents water leaks in the hose because of its natural ageing. The

red sector in the window «A» shows this

fault .

If this occur, close the water tap and contact the service centre to replace

the hose.

A

WATER DRAINAGE

There are different procedures to connect the drain hose:

With the plastic hose guide.

• On the edge of a sink.

• Make sure that the plastic guide cannot move when the appliance drains. Attach the guide to the water tap or the wall.

• To a stand pipe with vent-hole.

Refer to the illustration. Directly into a drain pipe at a height of not less than 60 cm and not more than 100 cm. The end of the drain hose must always be ventilated , i.e. the inner diameter of the drainpipe must be larger than the external diameter of the drain hose.

Without the plastic hose guide.

ENGLISH 35

To a sink spigot.

Refer to the illustration. Put the drain hose in the spigot and tighten it with a clip. Make sure that the drain hose makes a loop to prevent that remaining particles go in the appliance from the sink.

Directly to a built-in drain pipe in the room wall and tighten it with a clip.

You can extend the drain hose to maximum 400 cm. Contact the service centre for the other drain hose and the extension.
