The “Door Security” indicator light is illuminated when the door is fully closed and the machine is ON. When "Start/Pause" is pressed on the machine with the door closed the indicator will flash momentarily and then illuminate.

If the door is not closed the indicator will continue to flash.

A special safety device prevents the door from being opened immediately after the end of the cycle. Wait for 2 minutes after the wash cycle has finished and the “Door Security” light has gone out before opening the door. At the end of the cycle turn the programme selector to "OFF" .

START/PAUSE button

When a programme is selecting, wait for the “STOP” indicator light to flash before pressing the "Start/Pause" button.

Press to start the selected cycle (according to the selected cycle one indicator lights will go on) .

NOTE: When the "Start/Pause" button has been pressed, the appliance can take few seconds before it starts working.

Changing the settings after the programmes has started (PAUSE)

The programme may be paused at any time during the wash cycle by holding down the "Start/Pause" button for about two seconds. When the machine is in the paused mode, the indicator light "Time To End", spin speed and option buttons will flash.

To restart the programme, press the "Start/Pause" button once again.

If you wish to add or remove items during washing, wait 2 minutes until the safety device unlocks the door.

CANCELLING THE PROGRAMME

To cancel the programme the programme selector should be rotated to the "OFF" position.

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

FAST WASH button

D

Press the button to select or deselect this function.

Pressing this button reduces the time of the wash programme by a maximum of 50 minutes depending on the programme and the temperature selected. The "Super Rapid" button can be used for washing loads of 1 to 8 kg. This option may only be utilised on COTTONS and SYNTHETICS programmes.

ALLERGY CARE button

E

By pressing this button you can activate a special new wash cycle in the Cotton and Mixed Fabrics programs, thanks to the new Sensor Activa 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 programs.

STAIN VANISH Button

F

By pressing this button, which can only be activated in the Cotton cycles, the sensors in the new Activa system come into operation. They affect both the selected temperature, keeping it at a constant level throughout the wash cycle, and the mechanical function of the drum.

The drum is made to turn at two different speeds at crucial moments. When the detergent enters the garments, the drum rotates in such a way that the detergent is distributed in a uniform manner; during the wash and rinse procedures, however, the speed increases in order to maximise the cleaning action. Thanks to this special system, the efficiency of the wash procedure is improved WITHOUT ANY INCREASE IN THE LENGTH OF THE PROGRAM.

DELAY START button

G

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 (“STOP” indicator light blinks)

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 (The "STOP" light blinks) 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 SPEED button

H

The spin cycle is very important to remove as much water as possible from the laundry without damaging the fabrics. You can adjust the spin speed of the machine to suit your needs.

By pressing this button, it is possible to reduce the maximum speed, and if you wish, the spin cycle can be cancelled.

To reactivate the spin cycle press the button until you reach the spin speed you would like to set. To prevent damage to the fabrics, it is not possible to increase the speed over that which is automatically suitable during the selection of the program.

It is possible to modify the spin speed without to pausing the machine.

Note:

The machine is fitted with a special electronic device, which prevents the spin cycle should the load be unbalanced. This reduces the noise and vibration in the machine and so prolongs the life of your machine.
