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.

Switch the washing machine off by putting the program selector to the «Off»* position or pressing on the «On/Off»* key.

Unplug the washing machine.

Screw in the water inlet pipe and install the drain pipe.

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.
