4

User information

Remember to remove all coins, safety pins, boraches, screws, etc., before each wash. They can cause serious damage if they are left in your washing.

Do not put articles in your washing machine if you have used a solvent, alcohol, trichloroethylene, etc., to remove stains from them. If you must use these stain removers, wait until the product has evaporated before putting the articles in the drum.

Collect all small articles such as socks, belts, etc., in a small cloth bag or pillow case.

Use the quantity of detergent indicated in the «proportioning of detergents» section.

Always unplug the washing machine before cleaning it and doing any maintenance.

Precautions against frost

If your washing machine is exposed to temperatures below 0°C, take

the following precautions :

Close the tap and disconnect the water supply pipe.

Put the end of this pipe and the drain pipe into a bowl on the floor.

Select the «Drain» programme and make sure it works until it is complete.

*depending on model

5

User information

Water that remained in the pipes will then be evacuated, thus preventing the formation of frost or ice that can damage your washing machine.

The next time you want to use your washing machine, make sure that it is installed in a room in which the temperature is above 0°C.

Scrapping

All materials marked with the symbol can be recycled. Put them in a waste tip (ask for information from your municipal offices) so that they can be recovered and recycled.

When you take your washing machine to the tip, make sure that everything that could be dangerous is out of service ; cut the power supply cable flush with the surface of your washing machine.

Protection of the environment

We recommend that the following instructions should be followed to achieve savings in water and energy and therefore to contribute to protection of the environment:

If possible, use the washing machine at full capacity rather than with partial loads (however, do not overload the drum).

Only use the Prewash or Soak function for very dirty washing.

Use a detergent dose adapted to the water hardness (see «proportioning of detergents» section) and to the amount of washing and how dirty it is.

Washing guide

Sorting and preparing your washing

Sort the washing by type and care symbol (see chapter 5.4: International symbols for care of textiles): normal wash for strong washing that can resist energetic wash and spin; delicate wash for delicate washing that should be treated more carefully. For mixed loads composed of articles of different types of fibers, choose a program and temperature suitable for the most fragile fiber.

Wash white washing and color washing separately. Otherwise, the white washing may be colored or look gray.

New clothes very often have too much color. Preferably wash new clothes separately for the first time. Respect "wash separately" and "wash several times separately" care instructions.

Empty pockets and spread out the washing.

Take off all loose buttons, pins and hooks and eyes. Close zip fasteners, tie knots in laces and straps.

Turn clothes made of several layers of textiles (sleeping bags, anoraks, etc.), colored hosiery and wool and textiles with add-on decorations, inside out.

Wash small delicate items (socks, tights, bras, etc) in a washing net.

Treat curtains with special care. Remove curtain hooks and put net curtains in a net bag or a sachet.

Washing load depending on the nature of the ma-

terial

The quantity of washing that you put in your drum must not exceed the maximum capacity of your washing machine. This capacity may vary depending on the nature of your textiles. Reduce the quantity of washing if it is very dirty or if you have terry cloth type materials. Not all textiles have the same volume and the same water retention capacity. This is why in general the drum should be filled:

completely, but without excessive pressure for cotton and linen, and for mixed washe,

half full for treated cottons and synthetic fibers,

15

User information

• about one third full for very delicate articles such as net curtains and wool.

For a mixed wash, fill the drum as required for the most delicate material.

Detergents and additives

Only use detergents and additives suitable for use in a washing machine. Read the manufacturer's instructions and respect sections about detergents dispenser and detergents.

Powder detergents can be used without restriction; liquid detergents should be poured either in the proportioning bowl directly in the drum, or in the wash compartment provided that the washing machine is started immediately; detergents in tablets or doses must be put into the wash compartment of the detergents dispenser in your washing machine.

The quantity of detergent to be used depends on the amount of washing to be washed, the hardness of the water and how dirty the washing is.

If the water is soft, you can reduce the doses slightly. Increase the doses slightly if the water is hard (it is recommended to use a water softener) or if the washing is very dirty or stained.

You can ask the water distribution company in your region or any other competent authority to find out the degree of hardness of your water.

How to do a wash ?

Before the first wash in your washing machine, we recommend that you should do a preliminary wash at 90°C with detergent but without any washing to clean the tub.

Loading the washing

Lift the machine cover.

Open the drum by pressing on the locking button A; the two flaps automatically separate.

Insert the washing, close the drum and the cover of your washing

machine.

A

Warning : before you close the cover of your washing machine, make sure that the drum door is properly closed:

•the two flaps latched together, •the locking button A extended.

Proportioning of detergents

Your washing machine has been produced in order to reduce water and detergents consumptions, so you can reduce the doses recommended by detergent manufacturers. Pour the powder detergent dose into the

wash compartment and into the prewash compartment if you

chose the «prewash» option. Pour in the softener into the compartment. If you are using a different type of detergent, refer to the «detergents and additives» section in the washing guide.

Selecting the desired washing programme

Select the desired wash programme and temperature with the programme selector (for the appropriate programme, temperature and possible programme options suitable for any type of washing, see "Programme tables"). The control lamps corresponding to the programme light on.

18

User information

The OFF position of the programme selector switchs off the appliance (it is switched on for all other positions). This function enables also to cancel a programme and to restart the washing machine in case of error.

If the programme selector is turned when the appliance is performing wash cycle, the programme will be carried out and will ignore the new position of the selector. In order to solve this problem, re-position the programme selector on its original position.

Selecting the spinning speed

When selecting the programme or in Pause mode, the light corresponding to the maximum spinning speed illuminates. You can adjust the spinning speed which corresponds to the type of laundry and the degree of dampness required at the end of the wash depending on your drying possibilities. You can also choose the RINSE HOLD option.

If you do not modify the spinning speed, the final spinning is automatically adapted to the chosen programme. The middle spinning speed depends on the chosen programme and can not be modified.

Selecting the pushbuttons

Selecting if necessary one or several additionnal programme pushbuttons

to change the selection, press an another pushbutton.

to cancel a wrong selection, press again the same pushbutton.

Selecting a delay start

Select the number of hours after which you want the program to begin by pressing on the pushbutton several times.

Starting the programme

After you chose the washing program, press the "start/pause" pushbutton to start the cycle ; the corresponding light comes on con-

19

User information

tinuously. It is normal that the program selector does not turn during the cycle.

The current program light is on.

If you selected a delayed start, the countdown will begin. The "Remaining time" display window displays either the program duration or the displayed start time.

End of programme

The appliance is equipped with a security which prevents the opening of the lid during the cycle. The washing machine stops automatically. "0" flashes in the display window. You will hear a double "click" in the locking device. When the DOOR light illumintates, you can open the lid.

The programmes end :

by a spinning (for all washing programmes) if you have not selected the option RINSE HOLD

by a rinse hold (for all washing programmes) if you have selected the option RINSE HOLD. You can then end these programmes by a spinning or by a draining by setting the programme selector on the chosen programme by the OFF position, then pushing the START/ PAUSE pushbutton.

At the end of the cycle, place the programme selector on the OFF position in order to switch off the appliance.

Remove the laundry. Unplug the appliance and switch off the water inlet tap.

Check that the drum is empty : any garments left in the appliance may be damaged during the next wash (shrinkage) or their colour may run onto other garments.

Note : leave the lid opened in order to air the washing machine.

Care and cleaning

Do not do any cleaning operation until you have unplugged the washing machine.

Descaling the washing machine

Normally there is no need to descale the washing machine if the detergent was correctly proportioned.

If descaling is necessary, use a special non-corrosive product specially designed for washing machines that you can find in the shops. Respect the proportion and frequency of descaling shown on your packaging.

The surface

Clean the surface of your washing machine using lukewarm water and a mild detergent. Never use alcohol, solvents or similar products.

The detergents dispenser

From time to time, you must clean the detergents dispenser in order to eliminate the possible wastes of the detergents and then to avoid an operating problem.

The detergent dispenser is very easy to remove for a light cleaning.

Disassembly:

Press the clips on each side of the detergents dispenser and pull it upwards.

23

User information

Reassembly :

You can thus clean it using running water and a brush or a twisted cloth. Check that the siphons at the back of the detergents dispenser are not blocked.

Put the detergents dispenser in the notches until they lock.

The drain filter

Clean the filter at the bottom of the washing machine regularly. The "filter"* light comes on if the filter is blocked. In this case clean it immediately. If you wash washing that is very fluffy, clean it after each wash.

Open the door, with a screwdriver for example:

*depending on model

24

User information

Drain residual water:

Remove the filter:

Put a receptacle under the drain. Turn the cap in the anti-clockwise direction until it is vertical to release residual water.

Unscrew the cap all the way and take it off. Clean it tho-roughly with running water. Put the assembly back and screw it in the clockwise direction.

After cleaning the filter, you are required to closed the door. In fact, for reasons of safety, the door must be closed when the appliance is working.
