!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.
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.
! [. . . ] Once the START/PAUSE button has been pressed, the delay time can only be modified by decreasing it until launching the set programme.
!This option is enabled with all programmes.
Detergents and laundry
Detergent dispenser drawer
Good 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 contribute to environmental pollution.
Silk: use special wash cycle 7 to wash all silk garments. We recommend the use of special detergent which has been designed to wash delicate clothes. Jeans: Turn garments inside-out before washing and use a liquid detergent. Do not use hand washing detergents because these
create too much foam. Open the detergent dispenser drawer and pour in the detergent or washing additive, as follows.
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 machine 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.
!Do not pour detergent into the compartment 1.
Detergent should only be poured into the compartment 2. compartment 2: Detergent for the wash cycle (powder or liquid) Liquid detergent should only be poured in immediately prior to the start of the wash cycle. compartment 3: Additives (fabric softeners, etc. ) The fabric softener should not overflow the grid.
Preparing the laundry
• Divide the laundry according to: - the type of fabric/the symbol on the label - the colours: separate coloured garments from whites. • Do not exceed the listed values, which refer to the weight of the laundry when dry: Durable fabrics: max. 1 kg
How much does your laundry weigh?
1 sheet 400-500 g 1 pillow case 150-200 g 1 tablecloth 400-500 g 1 bathrobe 900-1200 g 1 towel 150-250 g
Garments requiring special care
Wool: all wool garments can be washed using programme 6, even those carrying the “hand-wash only” label. For best results, use special detergents and do not exceed 1, 5 kg of laundry.
