GB 2 ! This instruction manual should be kept in a safe place for future reference. If the washing machine is sold, transferred or moved, make sure that the instruction manual remains with the machine so that the new owner is able to familiarise himself/ herself with its operation and features. ! Read these instructions carefully: they con- tain vital information relating to the safe instal- lation and operation of the appliance. Unpacking and levelling Levelling the machine correctly will provide it with stability, help to avoid vibrations and excessive noise and prevent it from shifting while it is operating. If it is placed on carpet or a rug, adjust the feet in such a way as to allow a sufficient ventilation space underneath the washing machine. Levelling the machine correctly will provide it with stability, help to avoid vibrations and excessive noise and prevent it from shifting while it is operating. If it is placed on carpet or a rug, adjust the feet in such a way as to allow a sufficient ventilation space underneath the washing machine. Connecting the electricity and water supplies Installation Unpacking 1. Remove the washing machine from its packaging. 2. Make sure that the washing machine has not been damaged during the transportation process. If it has been damaged, contact the retailer and do not proceed any further with the installation process. 3. Remove the 4 pro- tective screws (used during transportation) and the rubber wa- sher with the cor- responding spacer, located on the rear part of the appliance (see figure). 4. Close off the holes using the plastic plugs provided. 5. Keep all the parts in a safe place: you will need them again if the washing machine ne- eds to be moved to another location. ! Packaging materials should not be used as toys for children. Levelling 1. Install the washing machine on a flat sturdy floor, without resting it up against walls, furni- ture cabinets or anything else. 2. If the floor is not perfectly level, com- pensate for any une- venness by tightening or loosening the adjustable front feet (see figure); the angle of inclination, measu- red in relation to the worktop, must not exceed 2°. Connecting the water inlet hose 1. Connect the sup- ply pipe by screwing it to a cold water tap using a 3⁄4 gas threa- ded connection (see figure). Before performing the connection, allow the water to run freely un- til it is perfectly clear. 2. Connect the inlet hose to the washing machine by screwing it onto the correspon- ding water inlet of the appliance, which is situated on the top right-hand side of the rear part of the ap- pliance (see figure). 3. Make sure that the hose is not folded over or bent. ! The water pressure at the tap must fall within the values indicated in the Technical details table (see page 5). ! If the inlet hose is not long enough, contact a specialised shop or an authorised technician. ! Never use second-hand hoses. ! Use the ones supplied with the machine.

Connecting the drain hose Connect the drain hose, without bending it, to a draining duct or a wall drain situated 65 - 100 cm between 65 and 100 cm from the floor; The drain hose may be connected to an under-sink trap. Be- fore connecting the drain hose from the machine ensure that any blanks or remo- Where it connects to the waste water pipe cut end off spigot or remove the blanking cap vable ends have been taken off the spigot. If it is placed over the edge of a basin or sink be sure the free end of the hose should not be underwater. ! We advise against the use of hose extensions; in case of absolute need, the extension must have the same diameter as the original hose and must not exceed 150 cm in length. Ensure that if the drain hose is pushed into a standpipe, that the end does not go down more than 15cms (6 inches). If the hose is pushed down too far, this may cause the machine to self -syphon ie. continuously empty as it is filling. Electric connection Before plugging the appliance into the mains socket, make sure that: • the socket is earthed and in compliance with the applicable law; • the socket is able to sustain the appliance’s maximum power load indicated on the Technical Data Plate fixed on the machine; • the supply voltage is included within the values indicated on the Technical Data Plate fixed on the machine. • the socket is compatible with the washing machine’s plug. If this is not the case, replace the socket or the plug. Your appliance is now supplied with a 13 amp fu- sed plug it can be plugged into a 13 amp socket for immediate use. Before using the appliance please read the instructions below. WARNING - THIS APPLIANCE MUST BE EARTHED. THE FOLLOWING OPERATIONS SHOULD BE CARRIED OUT BY A QUALIFIED ELECTRICIAN. Replacing the fuse: When replacing a faulty fuse, a 13 amp ASTA approved fuse to BS 1362 should always be used, and the fuse cover re-fitted. If the fuse cover is lost, the plug must not be used until a replacement is obtained. Replacement fuse covers: If a replacement fuse cover is fitted, it must be of the correct colour as indicated by the coloured marking or the colour that is embossed in words on the base of the plug. Replacements can be obtained directly from your nearest Service Depot. Removing the plug: If your appliance has a non-rewireable moulded plug and you should wish to re-route the mains cable through partitions, units etc., please en- sure that either: the plug is replaced by a fused 13 ampere rewi- reable plug bearing the BSI mark of approval. or: the mains cable is wired directly into a 13 amp cable outlet, controlled by a switch, (in complian- ce with BS 5733) which is accessible without moving the appliance. Disposing of the plug: Ensure that before disposing of the plug itself, you make the pins unusable so that it cannot be accidentally inserted into a socket. Instructions for connecting cable to an alterna- tive plug: Important: the wires in the mains lead are co- loured in accordance with the following code: Green & Yellow Earth Blue Neutral Brown Live GB 3

GB As the colours of the wires in the lead may not correspond with the coloured markings iden- tifying the terminals in your plug, proceed as follows: Connect Green & Yellow wire to terminal marked E or or coloured Green or Green & Yellow. Connect Brown wire to terminal marked L or coloured Red. Connect Blue wire to terminal marked N or co- loured Black. If a 13 amp plug (BS 1363) is used it must be fitted with a 13 amp fuse, either in the plug or adaptor or at the distribution board. If you are in any doubt regarding the electrical supply to your machine, consult a qualified electrician before use. How to connect an alternative plug: The wires in this mains lead are coloured in accordance with the following code: BLUE NEUTRAL (N) BROWN LIVE (L) GREEN & YELLOW EARTH (E) Disposing of the appliance: When disposing of the appliance please re- move the plug by cutting the mains cable as close as possible to the plug body and dispo- se of it as described above. ! The washing machine should not be installed in an outdoor environment, not even where the area is sheltered, because it may be very dangerous to leave it exposed to damp, rain and thunderstorms. ! When the washing machine is installed, the mains socket must be within easy reach. ! Do not use extensions or multiple sockets. ! The power supply cable must never be bent or dangerously compressed. 4 ! The power supply cable must only be repla- ced by an authorised serviceman. Warning! The company denies all liability if and when these norms are not respected. The first wash cycle Once the appliance has been installed, and before you use it for the first time, run a wash cycle with detergent and no laundry, using the wash cycle “Auto Clean” (see “Cleaning the washing machine”).

! This washing machine was designed and constructed in accordance with international safety regulations. The fol- lowing information is provided for safety reasons and must therefore be read carefully. General safety • This appliance was designed for domestic use only. • This from appliance 8 years and can above be used and by persons children with aged re- duced physical, sensory or mental capabilities or lack of experience and knowledge if they have been given supervision or instruction concerning use of the appliance in a safe way and understand the hazards involved. Children shall not play with the appliance. Cleaning and user maintenance shall not be made by children without supervision. • The washing machine must only be used by adults, in accor- dance with the instructions provided in this manual. • Do not touch the machine when barefoot or with wet or damp hands or feet. • Do not pull on the power supply cable when unplugging the appliance from the electricity socket. Hold the plug and pull. • Do not open the detergent dispenser drawer while the machine is in operation. • Do not touch the drained water as it may reach extreme- ly high temperatures. • Never force the porthole door. This could damage the safety lock mechanism designed to prevent accidental opening. • If the appliance breaks down, do not under any circum- stances access the internal mechanisms in an attempt to repair it yourself. • Always keep children well away from the appliance while it is operating. • The door can become quite hot during the wash cycle. • If the appliance has to be moved, work in a group of two or three people and handle it with the utmost care. Never try to do this alone, because the appliance is very heavy. • Before loading laundry into the washing machine, make sure the drum is empty. Load balancing system Before every spin cycle, to avoid excessive vibrations and to distribute the load in a uniform manner, the drum rotates continuously at a speed which is slightly greater than the washing rotation speed. If, after several attempts, the load is not balanced correctly, the machine spins at a reduced spin speed. If the load is excessively unbalanced, the washing ma- chine performs the distribution process instead of spinning. To encourage improved load distribution and balance, we recommend small and large garments are mixed in the load. Disposal • Disposing of the packaging materials: observe local regulations so that the packaging may be re-used. • The European Directive 2012/19/EU on Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment, requires that old household electrical appliances must not be disposed of in the normal unsorted municipal waste stream. Old appliances must be collected separately in order to optimise the recovery and recycling of the materials they contain and reduce the impact on human health and the environment. The crossed out “wheeled bin” symbol on the product reminds you of your obligation, that when you dispose of the appliance it must be separately collected. Consumers should contact their local authority or retailer for information concerning the correct disposal of their old appliance. GB GB 7

Table of wash cycles The length of cycle shown in this booklet is an estimation only and is calculated assuming standard working conditions. The actual duration can vary according to factors such as water temperature and pressure, the amount of detergent used, the amount and type of load inserted, load balancing and any wash options selected. 1) Test wash cycle in compliance with directive 1061/2010: set wash cycle 8 with a temperature of 60°C. This cycle is designed for cotton loads with a normal soil level and is the most efficient in terms of both electricity and water consumption; it should be used for garments which can be washed at 60°C. The actual washing temperature may differ from the indicated value. 2) Test wash cycle in compliance with directive 1061/2010: set wash cycle 9 with a temperature of 40°C. This cycle is designed for cotton loads with a normal soil level and is the most efficient in terms of both electricity and water consumption; it should be used for garments which can be washed at 40°C. The actual washing temperature may differ from the indicated value. For all Test Institutes: 2) Long wash cycle for cottons: set wash cycle 9 with a temperature of 40°C. 3) Synthetic program along: set wash cycle 10 with a temperature of 40°C.

The temperature may be lowered, or even set to a cold wash . The washing machine will automatically prevent you from selecting a temperature which is higher than the maximum value set for each wash cycle. Setting the spin speed Press the SPIN SPEED button to set the spin speed for the selected wash cycle. The maximum spin speeds available for each wash cycle are as follows: Wash cycles Maximum spin speed Cottons 1600 rpm Synthetics 800 rpm Wool 800 rpm The spin speed may be lowered, or the spin cycle can be excluded altogether by selecting the symbol . The washing machine will automatically prevent you from selecting a spin speed which is higher than the maximum speed set for each wash cycle. Functions The various wash functions available with this washing machine will help to achieve the desired results, every time. To activate the functions: 1. Press the button corresponding to the desired function; 2. the function is enabled when the corresponding indicator light is illuminated. Note: If the indicator light flashes rapidly, this signals that this particular function may not be selected in conjunction with the selected wash cycle. Sport This option allows for selecting the most suitable programme for any type of sports clothing, and is designed to remove dirt while optimally preserving the technical features of the garments. The various Sport option levels offer the following wash cycles: - Sport Shoes, a cycle designed to safely wash up to 2 pairs of sports shoes simultaneously. - Gym Kit, a cycle designed to simultaneously wash any type of sports clothing together with gym towels. - Technical Wear, designed for specifically washing waterproof garments or clothing with special technical fibres like Gore-Tex, so as to optimise washing performance while preserving their technical properties over time. Do not use fabric softeners for garments with technical fibres. ! It cannot be used in conjunction with wash cycles 2-3-4-5-6-7-8-9-10-11-12-13-14- - . Fast Forward During a wash programme and under certain conditions, pressing this button allows for ending the wash programme after only 20’ if necessary, by performing a brief rinse cycle followed by a spin cycle at maximum 800 rpm or lower, if reduced manually during the programme customisation phase. In this case, washing and rinsing performance will be reduced. After pressing the button, the relative indicator light turns on together with the indicator light of the rinse phase. If the selected temperature is equal to 40° and/or the button is pressed during the initial phase of the programme, the “Fast Forward” option lasts longer so that the detergent can dissolve properly and avoid damaging the fabrics. In this case, the rinse phase indica- tor light flashes while the wash indicator light remains fixed until the necessary activation conditions are fulfilled. If less than 20’ remain of the wash programme, the option will be disabled. ! It cannot be used in conjunction with wash cycles 2-4-5-6-13-14- - . Easy iron By selecting this function, the wash and spin cycles will be modified in order to reduce the formation of creases. At the end of the cycle the washing machine will perform slow rotations of the drum, while the EASY IRON and START/PAUSE indica- tor lights will flash and the led will remain lit in a fixed manner. To end the cycle, press the START/PAUSE button or the EASY IRON button. ! It cannot be used in conjunction with wash cycles 1-3-5-13-14- - . Extra Rinse By selecting this option, the efficiency of the rinse is increased and optimal detergent removal is guaranteed. It is particularly useful for sensitive skin. ! It cannot be used in conjunction with wash cycles 2-4-13-14- . GB 11

GB 12 Detergents and laundry Detergent dispenser drawer Successful washing results also depend on the correct dose of detergent: adding too much detergent will not necessarily result in a more efficient wash, and may in fact cause build up on the inside of your appliance and contri- bute to environmental pollution. ! Do not use hand washing detergents because these create too much foam. ! Use powder detergent for white cotton garments, for pre- washing, and for washing at temperatures over 60°C. ! Follow the instructions given on the detergent packaging. Open the detergent dispenser drawer and pour in the deter- gent or washing additive, as follows. ! Do not pour detergent into the compartment 1. Detergent should only be poured into the compartment 2. Compartment 2: Washing detergent (powder or liquid) If liquid detergent is used, it is recommended that the removable plastic partition A (supplied) be used for proper dosage. If powder detergent is used, place the partition into slot B. Compartment 3: Additives (fabric softeners, etc.) The fabric softener must not exceed the “max” level indicated on the central pin. Preparing the laundry • Divide the laundry according to: - the type of fabric/the symbol on the label - the colours: separate coloured garments from whites. • Empty all garment pockets and check the buttons. • Do not exceed the values listed in the “Table of wash cycles”, which refer to the weight of the laundry when dry. How much does your laundry weigh? 1 sheet 400-500 g 1 pillow case 150-200 g 1 tablecloth 400-500 g 1 bathrobe 900-1.200 g 1 towel 150-250 g Garments requiring special care Sport (programme 1) is designed for washing lightly soiled sports clothing (tracksuits, shorts, etc.); for best results, we recommend not exceeding the maximum load indicated in the “Table of wash cycles”. We recommend using liquid detergent, and adding the amount suitable for a half-load. Dark: use cycle 2 to wash dark-coloured garments. This programme is designed to maintain dark colours over time. We recommend using a liquid detergent for the best results when washing dark-coloured garments. Anti-odour: use programme 3 for washing garments with bad odours (e.g. smoke, sweat, fried food). The program- me is designed to remove bad odours while preserving the fabric fibres. Synthetics fabrics or mixed loads should be washed at 40°, and resistant cotton fabrics at 60°. Delicate: use programme 4 to wash very delicate garments. It is advisable to turn the garments inside out before washing them. For best results, use liquid detergent on delicate garments. For washing Silk items and Curtains, select the relevant cycle and activate the option (in this case it will also be possible to enable the “Extra Rinse” option); the machine will end the cycle with the laundry soaked and the indicator light will flash. To drain the water so that the laundry can be removed, press the START/ PAUSE button ro the option . Wool: the wool wash cycle of this machine has been tested and approved by The Woolmark Company for the washing of wool containing garments labelled as “hand B A wash” provided that the garments are washed according to the instructions on the garment label and those issued 1 by the manufacturer of this washing machine. (M1127) 3 2 In UK, Eire, Hong Kong and India the Woolmark trade mark is a Certification trade mark. Duvet: to wash double or single duvets (the weight of which should not exceed 3,5kg), cushions or clothes padded with goose down such as puffa jackets, use the special wash cycle number 6. We recommend that duvets are placed in the drum with their edges folded inwards (see figure) and that no more than 3⁄4 of the total volume of the drum is used. To achieve the best results, we recom- mend that a liquid detergent is used and placed inside the detergent dispenser drawer. Coloured: use this cycle 11 to wash bright coloured clothes. The programme is designed to maintain bright colours over time. Cotton Standard 20° (programme 12) ideal for lightly soiled cotton loads. The effective performance levels achieved at cold temperatures, which are comparable to washing at 40°, are guaranteed by a mechanical action which operates at varying speed, with repeated and frequent peaks. 20’ Refresh 20° (programme 13) ideal for refreshing and washing lightly soiled garments in a few minutes. It lasts just 20 minutes and therefore saves both time and energy. It can be used to wash different types of fabrics together (except for wool and silk), with a maximum load of 1.5 kg. 60’ Cotton (programme 14) is designed to wash moderately soiled resistant cotton garments at 60° in an hour, with good washing performance. For synthetic or mixed garments, we recommend lowering the temperature down to 40°. Troubleshooting Your washing machine could fail to work. Before contacting the Technical Assistance Centre (see “Assistance”), make sure that the problem cannot be solved easily using the following list. GB Problem: The machine does not switch on. The wash cycle does not start. The machine does not fill with wa- ter or the indicator light for the first wash cycle stage flashes rapidly.

To complete the program press the ‘START/PAUSE’ or the buttons. • Programme times will vary due to water pressure, the incoming water tempera- ture and if the wash load goes out of balance. This will increase the programme times accordingly (see ‘ The machine wont spin properly’ below). • The feet have not been adjusted, enabling the machine to rock. • New Installation - Either the Transit Bolts including the plastic spacers, or the Polystyrene Packaging have not been removed when installing the machine.

• The ON/OFF button has not been pressed. • The START/PAUSE button has not been pressed. • The water tap has not been turned on to allow water to flow into the machine. • A delayed start has been set. • The water tap has not been turned on to allow water to flow into the machine. • There is no water supply to the house. • The inlet valve filter is blocked. • The START/PAUSE button has not been pressed. • The end of the drain hose has been pushed too far down the standpipe, the ‘U’ bracket should be fitted 100 mm from the end of the drain hose. • New Installation - The blanking cap or spigot has not been removed if connected under a sink. • The drain hose or sink trap is blocked. • The machine is trapped between cabinets and/or walls. • The load is in a slight out of balance condition and machine is spinning, but at a lower speed. 13

After completing the programme, or before starting a programme, the machine has turned itself off (no lights). General. 14 • There will always be some motor, pump and drum noise during spin. • Out of Balance detected when attempting to go into a spin cycle - If this happens the machine will continue to try to repeat the distribution of the load required before the machine will go into higher spin speeds - This will increase the programme time accordingly. This is a safety feature to prevent damage. Out of Balance can be caused by washing a single heavy item (eg duvet, quilt, etc). - Try the programme again using a different load. • The dispenser drawer is blocked with detergent and requires cleaning. • The water pressure is too high and requires turning down - turn down the tap on the water supply pipe slightly and try again. • The machine is tilting forwards - It must be level when in its final position. • The fill hose is loose, check both the cabinet and tap ends. • The fill hose is tight but still leaks, if so replace the rubber washers, or the fill hose is missing the rubber washer. • Switch off the machine and unplug it, wait for approximately 1 minute and then switch it back on again If the problem persists contact the Technical Assistance Service. • The machine requires a service wash. Run a “Auto Clean” wash cycle with detergent and no laundry. • The door will not open until the door lock indicator light goes out shortly after the program has finished. • The door seal has drainage holes at the bottom - This is normal. • The water level is correct if it can be seen at the bottom of the door. • The detergent is not suitable for machine washing (it should display the text ‘for washing machines’ or ‘hand and machine wash’ or the like). • To comply with new energy saving regulations the machine is fitted with an automatic standby system. Press ‘ON/OFF’ button for 3 seconds to activate the machine, it can then either be switched off or a new programme selected. • Your washing machine contains sensors that monitor progress during the wash cycle (eg: Water Levels, Temperatures, Out of Balance loads, Wash time/progress). Normally, if your machine successfully completes the cycle, there is unlikely to be anything wrong!

• The drain hose is not fixed in properly. • If there is no power to the machine you need to perform the manual unlocking procedure. • Too much detergent was used - less detergent is required in soft water. Remember, you will be charged for a service call for problems caused by incorrect installation, as listed above. Not emptying contents from pockets may cause pump or drain blockages, or may damage the machine. Do not wash items which do not have a wash label, or wash items that are not intended as machine washable.
