At the end of its working life, the product must not be disposed of as urban waste. It must be taken to a special local authority differentiated waste collection centre or to a dealer providing this service. Disposing of a household appliance separately avoids possible negative consequences for the environment and health deriving from inappropriate disposal and enables the constituent materials to be recovered to obtain significant savings in energy and resources. As a reminder of the need to dispose of household appliances separately, the product is marked with a crossed-out wheeled dustbin. Safety Warnings • If the plug or cord is damaged, do not connect the appliance to the mains power supply. If the cord is damaged it should be replaced by the manufacturer or appointed service agent in order to avoid a hazard. • To remove the plug from the socket, pull on the body of the plug, not the cable. • Do not plug the appliance in to the mains power supply with wet or damp hands. • Never touch the appliance with wet hands or feet. • Never open the detergent drawer when a programme is running. • Never force the appliance door open when a programme is running. • Since the appliance can reach high temperatures while running, do not touch the drain hose or drained water during draining. 4 • In case of any failure, first unplug the appliance and close the water tap. • Repair on this appliance should only be undertaken by suitably qualified personnel. • Keep the packing materials away from children to prevent risk of injury. • Do not let children play with the washing machine. • Keep pets away from the appliance. • The appliance should not be installed on carpeted surfaces as this can block the air ventilation on the base. Warnings To avoid the risk of fire, electric shocks, injury or damage when using your washing machine, please take the following precautions: • Please read all the instructions before using the washing machine. • Do not wash items that have previously been cleaned, washed, soaked or treated with petrol, solvents for dry cleaning, other inflammable substances or explosives, as they produce fumes that could catch fire or explode. • Do not add petrol, solvents for dry cleaning or other inflammable or explosive substances to the wash water as they produce fumes that could catch fire or explode. • Do not repair or replace any part of the washing machine or try to carry out any type of servicing unless it is recommended in the maintenance instructions in the manual. • Do not climb onto the machine or stand on the open porthole door. • Do not use an extension lead or adaptor to connect your washing machine to the mains supply. • Follow the washing instructions recommended by the manufacturer of the garment to be washed. • Do not turn your washing machine on until you are sure 5 that it has been installed in accordance with the installation instructions and all the water, drainage, mains electricity and earth connections meet the local regulations and/or other applicable regulations. Important: Ensure that the transit bolts have been removed prior to using the machine. Recommendations • Residues of detergent or softener left in the detergent drawer for long periods will dry and stick to the detergent drawer. To prevent this put the detergent and softener into the detergent drawer just before washing. • It is recommended that the pre-wash programme should only be used for very dirty clothes. • Do not exceed the maximum loading capacity. • When the machine is not in use, keep the water tap closed. • The appliance is not intended for use by people (including children) with reduced physical, sensory or mental capabilities, or lack of experience and knowledge, unless they have been given supervision or instruction concerning use of the appliance by a person responsible for their safety. Children should be supervised to ensure that they do not play with the appliance. • If the appliance is not to be used for prolonged periods of time, unplug the appliance, close the water tap and leave the door ajar to keep the inside of the machine dry and to prevent unpleasant odours from developing. • As a result of the quality control procedures during production, a certain amount of water may remain in the appliance. This is normal and does not signify a fault. • Do not remove the rating plate. The information on it is important. • This appliance should not be installed in locations where the ambient temperature may fall below 0°C. Use in 6 ambient temperatures below 0°C may damage the machine. Before First Use When your washing machine has been correctly installed, we recommend that you pre-clean the machine. This is to check that the installation, the connections and the drainage are all correct, and to thoroughly clean the inside of the washing machine before any wash programmes are run. Prior to pre-cleaning you should ensure the transit bolts have been removed. • Select the Cotton 90oC programme and add a normal dose of detergent into the detergent dispenser. • Press the Start/Pause button. Preparing Garments for Washing • Wash lightly soiled garments using a short programme. • Use a programme without prewash for medium-soiled garments. • Wash heavily soiled garments using a long programme with prewash. • Wash white and coloured loads separately. • We recommend that small garments are placed in a wash bag. • We recommend using the delicate programmes for sensitive fabrics. • Separate clothes according to their types (cotton, synthetic, sensitive, woolen, etc.), required washing temperatures and level of dirtiness. • Since new coloured clothes may shed dye on the first wash, wash them separately. • Remove any metal pieces found on the items to be washed, for example curtain hooks. • Fasten all zips and buttons. • Turn garments, such as knitted fabrics, inside out. 7 • Before placing the clothes in the drum, make sure all the pockets are empty. Any small objects may block the drain pump. • We recommend loading the washing machine to its full capacity for best water and energy efficiency. Whenever possible, we recommend that you wash garments of different sizes within the same wash programme. This improves the washing action and also aids the correct distribution of the garments in the drum when spin-drying, and the washing machine will therefore be quieter. Eco Note The use of more detergent than necessary will not improve your washing results, and will have a negative effect on the environment. We therefore recommend you follow the detergent manufacturer’s instructions. 8 Control Panel Display: shows the settings (spin speed, cycle status, timer, child lock on/off, maximum recommended weight). The settings can be modified using the buttons underneath. 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 Buttons: 1: Spin speed selection 2: Choose option 3: Confirm option 4: Delay timer 5: Child lock 6: Start / Pause 7: Programme selector 9 Opening the Door The appliance is fitted with a safety device which prevents the door from being opened while a programme is in progress. Check that all the water has been drained from the tank and the drum is at a standstill. Warning: If the washing programme is interrupted, it will be from 3 to 15 minutes before the door can be opened, depending on the temperature reached inside the appliance. Loading the Washing Machine • Open the door. • Add the items to be washed separately, ensuring they are loaded evenly. • When closing the door, ensure that no item is trapped between the door and the door seal. • Close the door securely, otherwise the programme will not start. • Subdivide the items for washing by fabric type and colour fastness. • Wash white and coloured items separately. New coloured items should be washed separately the first time. Normally, items carry labels with washing instructions. 10 Adding Detergents and Additives Your washing machine’s detergent dispenser has three compartments, marked with symbols: For prewash detergent For main wash detergent For fabric conditioner, starch or other additives. • The main wash detergent compartment has a tang allowing the use of liquid detergent. To insert it, pull it towards the front and then lower it, as shown here. • Place the detergent and any additives in the drawer before the start of the programme. • Never fill with liquids above the maximum level marked, otherwise the trays will empty too quickly. • Before pouring concentrated fabric conditioners (or other dense additives) into the container, dilute with a little water to ensure they do not clog the outlet. • Use only low-foam detergents suitable for use in a washing machine. • The amount of detergent must be decided in relation to the hardness of the water, the type and quantity of items loaded, and their degree of soiling. This will provide the 11 desired effect with optimal detergent consumption. • On detergent packs the recommended dose is indicated for 4 levels of water hardness and for loads of 4-5 kg of washing with average dirt levels. Detergent Doses Laundry with normal dirt • Choose a programme without prewash. • Pour the total amount of detergent shown on the pack into the main wash compartment of the detergent drawer. Very dirty laundry • Choose a programme with prewash. • Place 1⁄4 of the recommended amount of detergent in the prewash compartment of the detergent drawer and 3⁄4 of the detergent in the wash compartment. Warning: • For delicate items in synthetic fibre use from 1⁄2 to 2⁄3 of the recommended dose for washing tough cotton fabrics. • Only neutral detergents recommended for wool should be used on the wool programme. • Use the doses recommended by the detergent producer. Liquid Detergent • Pour the dose required into the measuring cap supplied with the bottle of liquid detergent and place it in the drum, or use the main wash compartment of the detergent drawer, fitting the insert provided. • The scale on the red insert is intended as an aid when deciding the dose of liquid detergent. Warning: Liquid detergents can be used, at the doses recommended by the manufacturer, only for the main wash, i.e. in all programmes without prewash. 12 Descalers • Descalers can be added to the prewash and main wash compartments as recommended by their manufacturers. • Place the detergent in the compartments first, followed by the descaler. Selecting the Washing Programme To switch on the appliance and select the programme, proceed as follows: 1 Turn the “Programme Selector” knob in either direction. This switches on the washing machine. 2 Select the washing programme. The time left to the end of the programme and the maximum recommended weight for the selected programme alternate on the display.

If a programme has been run recently, wait for the water in the appliance to cool down to prevent risk of scalding. Cleaning the Outside of the Appliance • Regular, thorough cleaning will keep your appliance looking good. • Clean the exterior of the appliance with soap and water only, then dry thoroughly with a soft cloth. • The plastic parts should just be wiped with a damp cloth. • Do not scrape with pointed objects, or use solvents or products containing abrasive substances (including Cif) because they damage the surfaces. • For reasons of safety, never spray the washing machine with jets of water. Cleaning the Drum • Remove any rust marks from the drum using a stainless steel cleaner. • For descaling the washing machine use only brand-name descalers which contain an anti-corrosion agent for washing machines. • Always follow the producer's instructions with regard to use and dosages. • After descaling or removing rust from the drum, carry out a few rinse cycles to remove all acid residues which might damage the appliance. Never use cleaners which contain solvents. There is the risk of the formation of vapours which might catch fire and explode. 24 Cleaning the Door Seal Check regularly that there are no paper clips, buttons, nails or pins in the folds of the door gasket. Cleaning the Drain Pump The drain pump only needs cleaning if the water is not being pumped out efficiently. This may happen if it has been blocked by buttons, brooches or similar objects. In this case, proceed as described below. Remove the mains plug to disconnect the appliance from the electricity supply. • Use a small screwdriver as a lever to remove the plugs shown here, turn the plinth downwards to access the pump • Extract the drain hose ”A”. Warning: if the hose is hot, the water is hot or could be near boiling point. • Place a shallow container on the floor and remove the plug “B” to drain off the water. • Depending on the amount of water in the appliance, the container may have to be emptied several times. • When no more water is coming out, close the hose again by pushing the plug “B” firmly back into place. • Unscrew the cover of the pump “D” by turning it anticlockwise. 25 • Clean the pump and remove any foreign bodies. • Also check the inside “E”, making sure that the impeller turns freely; any foreign bodies stuck in it must be removed. • Screw the cover back on the pump. • Secure the drain house by snapping the plug back into place "C". • Fit the bottom of the plinth first. Push it towards the cabinet and put the plugs back into place. Cleaning the Detergent Drawer The detergent drawer should be kept clean, removing all solid deposits. To simplify this operation, completely remove the detergent drawer: • Pull the drawer fully out, press in the zone marked “PUSH” and then remove completely. • Remove the syphon "A" and clean all parts with hot water. • Fully re-insert the syphon and remove any detergent deposits before putting the drawer back in position. 26 Water intake filters There are filters on the tap side of the water inlet hose and at the ends of the water inlet valves. These filters prevent ingress of dirt or foreign objects into the machine through the water supply. These filters should be cleaned approximately once a year to ensure there is no interruption in the water supply to the machine. • Remove the water inlet hose. • Remove the filters on the water inlet valves using pliers. • Remove the filters on the tap side of the water inlet hose manually, as well as the seal. • Clean the filters thoroughly using a brush. • Replace the filters carefully, in the same way as they were removed. Practical Information Alcoholic Beverages: The stain should first be washed with cold water, then wiped with glycerine and water and be rinsed with water mixed with vinegar. Shoe Polish: The stain should be slightly scratched without ruining the cloth, rubbed with detergent and rinsed. In case it is not eliminated, it should be rubbed with 1 unit of pure alcohol (96 degrees) mixed in 2 units of water and then washed with lukewarm water. Tea and Coffee: Stretch the stained area of your cloth on the top of a container and pour water as hot as the type of cloth can endure. If the type of cloth is suitable, wash it with lye.

Warning: Do not turn the machine upside down or lie it on its side. Do not throw the transit bolts or plastic spacers away. If you need to move the washing machine after installation you should first replace the transit bolts. Do not install your machine on rugs or similar surfaces. For your machine to work silently and without any vibration, it should be installed on a flat, non-slippery and solid surface. Never put cartons, wooden blocks or similar materials under the machine to level the surface under the appliance 31 Leveling 1. On appliances with adjustable rear feet, note that the rear of the appliance (as supplied) rests on skids and not on the feet. 2. Before positioning the washing machine, check that the rear feet are screwed fully in, to prevent damage as the appliance is shifted into position. 3. Once the appliance is in its position, the height of the rear feet has to be increased so that the appliance no longer stands on the skids. 4. After adjusting the rear feet, level the appliance by adjusting the front feet to suit. The front feet should be locked in position by securing the locknuts tightly against the underside of the washing machine. Note: Raising the washing machine too high can affect the stability of the appliance. 32 Connecting to the Mains Water Supply 1. Check that the water supply pressure is in the range: 0.1- 1.0MPa. With higher pressures, use a pressure reducer. 2. Connect the cold water supply hose (blue screw collar) to the cold water tap with 3⁄4” gas threaded connector, taking care to tighten firmly to prevent leaks. The water supply hose must not be kinked or crushed and must not be changed or cut. Threaded connections must only be tightened by hand. Warning: • If the connection is made to new pipelines, or lines which have been out of use for a long time, allow a considerable amount of water to flow out before connecting the intake hose. This prevents any grit or other dirt from fouling the filters installed in the appliance to protect the water intake valves. • The new intake hose supplied with the appliance must be used, and the old water supply hose must not be used. Drainage Connection • It is recommended that you have a fixed drainage outlet 60 to 70cm from the floor. • Avoid the drain hose being too tight, kinked or restricted. • The water outlet can either be connected to a water drain or to a sink outlet spigot. This connection should be a minimum of 60cm and a maximum of 100cm from the floor. • The drain hose should be no longer than 4m in length to ensure good performance from the washing machine. 33 • After connecting the water supply, check to ensure there are no leaks. The drain hose must be securely fastened to the outlet to prevent any risk of the drain hose becoming detached and causing flooding. Once the appliance is connected to the water supply and the drain connection, ensure that the water inlet and drain hoses are not folded, twisted, crushed or elongated by stretching when moving the appliance into position.
