Useful advice for users

Tips on using your domestic appliance in the most environmentally-friendly and economical way

Do a full load in your washing machine

To prevent any possible waste of energy, water or detergent we recommend that you put a full load in your washing machine, not exceed the maximum loads shown below:

Cotton and linen

4,5

kg

Mixed

2

kg

Very delicate

1,5

kg

Wool

1

kg

Up to 50% energy saving can be made with one full load compared to two half load washes

When is prewashing really needed?

Only with particularly dirty loads!

Energy savings of 5 to 15% are made by not selecting the prewash option for normal soiled laundry.

Which wash temperature should you choose?

Using stain removers before machine washing reduces the need to wash at temperatures over 60°C.

Energy savings of up to 50% can be made by using a 60°C wash temperature rather than 90°C

EXTRA RINSE button

D

This function will allow an extra rinse or more water added at the rinse stage – depending on the programme selected. This is particularly important for avoiding skin irritation from detergent residues for people with particularly sensitive skin.

The extra rinse button is also recommended when washing heavily soiled fabrics, requiring the use of a lot of detergent, or when washing items made of towelling, whose fibres have a greater tendency to retain detergent.

RINSE-HOLD button

E

 

Pressing this button (which operates only during the DELICATES programmes) means the cycle stops at the final rinse stage, leaving the drum filled with water.

The garments thus stay immersed in the water, preventing them from bunching up and forming creases that are difficult to remove.

When the button is reset the cycle ends with the water being pumped out followed by the spin stage.

If only pumping out is required, without spin, to minimise creasing you must:

-switch off the machine (press the On/Off button);

-select programme Z;

-switch on the machine again (by pressing the On/Off button);

-reset the Rinse-hold button.

INTENSIVE WASH button

F

This function which is available on all cotton programmes is very useful for heavy soiling. The temperature is kept constant throughout all the wash phases and the programme is extended to ensure an extra deep cleaning performance.

WASH TEMPERATURE selector

I

 

Can be turned in either direction

 

This washing machine is equipped with this device for

 

setting the wash temperature you want. We recommend

 

that the temperature shown on the label inside garments

 

should never be exceeded.

 

The most suitable temperature and cycle for each type of

 

fabric is shown in the programme guide.

 

To protect fabrics, if the variable temperature dial has

 

accidentally been set too high than stated in the

 

programme guide, the machine will lower the temperature automatically.

 

PROGRAMME Selector

L

 

Note: never turn the dial anti-clockwise (Turn it clockwise and do not press the on/off button before selecting the programme.)

The tables in the washing section describe the various programmes and give the number or symbol to select for them.

OK

IMPORTANT : IF YOU NEED TO CHANGE A PROGRAMME THAT HAS ALREADY STARTED – SWITCH OFF THE MACHINE BY THE ON / OFF BUTTON AND THEN MOVE THE PROGRAMME DIAL TO THE CORRECT POSITION. IF YOU DO NOT PRESS “OFF” BEFOREHAND, THE DIAL WILL AUTOMATICALLY MOVE TO ITS INITIAL POSITION.

Detergent drawer

A

The detergent draw is split into 4 compartments:

-the first, labelled "I", is for prewash detergent or for FAST WASH programme detergent

-the second, labelled "II", is for main wash detergent

cl

If liquid detergents are used, please insert the special container supplied into the compartment marked “II” in the detergent drawer. This ensures that the liquid detergent enters the drum at the right stage of the wash cycle.

Note: some detergents are difficult to remove. For these, we recommend you use the special dispenser which is placed in the drum.

- the third, labelled "", is for bleaching agents.

The machine is programmed to automatically take up the bleach during the first rinse in cotton cycles.

Note: only put liquid products in the third and fourth compartments.

- the fourth, labelled "" is for special additives, fabric softeners, fragrances, starch, brighteners etc.

The machine is programmed to automatically take up additives during the final rinse stage for all wash cycles.

Programme selector

The washing machine has 3 different programme groups according to type of wash, temperature and duration for handling the various types of fabric (see wash programme guide).

1.

Colourfast fabric

COTTONS

The programmes are designed for maximum washing and rinsing.

 

With spin stages in between, they guarantee the laundry is rinsed perfectly.

The final spin stage ensures laundry is wrung out as much as possible.

 

2.

Mixed fibres and synthetics

SYNTHETICS

Washing and rinsing performance is optimised through drum rotation

 

speeds and water level. The delicate action spin minimises creasing.

 

3.

Delicate fabrics, wool & extra delicate programme

DELICATES

This group of programmes have been specially designed to wash the most delicate fabrics

Use the Delicate programme for delicate fabrics

Use the Woollens programme only for machine washable wool

Use the extra delicate programme for any machine washable handwash garments

Main wash

Automatic Variable Capacity

The washing machine is fitted with an automatic reduction in consumption system (known as Automatic Variable Capacity).

This system enables the machine to use the amount of water needed to wash and rinse the laundry in relation to the particular load.

This results in a reduction in the amount of water used and electricity needed to heat it to the minimum required, without in any way compromising the washing and rinsing performance. In fact the amount of water and electricity used will always be appropriate for the amount of washing.

The washing machine therefore ensures you achieve excellent washing results whilst respecting the environment and saving you money.
