!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.
! [. . . ] Wool: all wool garments can be washed using programme 10, even those carrying the “hand-wash only” label. For best results, use special detergents and do not exceed 1, 5 kg of laundry. Jeans: Turn garments inside-out before washing and use a liquid detergent. Sport Intensive (programma 12): is for washing heavily soiled sports clothing fabrics (tracksuits, shorts, etc. ); for best results, we recommend not exceeding the maximum load indicated in the “Programme table”. Sport Light (programma 13): is for washing lightly soiled sports clothing fabrics (tracksuits, shorts, etc. ); for best results, we recommend not exceeding the maximum load indicated in the “Programme table”. We recommend using a liquid detergent and dosage suitable for a half-load. Special Shoes (programma 14): is for washing sports shoes; for best results, do not wash more than 2 pairs simultaneously. The 20° wash cycles (Zone 20°) offer effective washing performance at low temperatures, reducing electricity usage and expenditure while benefitting the environment. The 20° wash cycles meet all requirements: Cotton Standard (programme 6) ideal for heavily 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. Mix Light (programme 7) ideal for mixed loads (cotton and synthetics) with a normal soil level. The effective performance levels achieved at cold temperatures are guaranteed by a mechanical action which operates at varying speed, across set average intervals. 20’ Refresh (programme 8) ideal for refreshing and washing lightly soiled garments in a few minutes. It can be used to wash different types of fabrics together (except for wool and silk), with a maximum load of 1. 5 kg.
!Do not use hand washing detergents because these
create too much foam.
!Use powder detergent for white cotton garments, for prewashing, 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 detergent or washing additive, as follows.
!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. 5 kg
How much does your laundry weigh?
Load balancing system
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
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. [. . . ] Normally, if your machine successfully completes the cycle, there is unlikely to be anything wrong!
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.
