3. PRACTICAL TIPS Load tips WARNING: when sorting laundry, make sure:
Before using a drying (WASHER-DRYERS)
- have eliminated metallic objects such as hair clips, pins, coins, from laundry;
l SAVE energy and time by selecting a
high spin speed to reduce the water content in laundry before using a drying programme.
- to have buttoned pillow cases, closed zips, tied loose belts and long robe ribbons;
Following is a quick guide with tips and recommendations on detergent use at the various temperatures. In any case, always read the instructions on the detergent for correct use and doses.
- to have removed rollers, hooks or clips from curtains; - to have carefully read clothing washing labels; - to have removed any persistent stains using specific detergents.
When washing heavily soiled whites, we recommend using cotton programs of 60°C or above and a normal washing powder (heavy duty) that contains bleaching agents that at medium/high temperatures provide excellent results.
l When washing rugs, bedcovers or other heavy clothing, we recommend you avoid the spinning cycle.
l To wash wool, make sure the item can be machine washed. Check the fabric label.
Helpful suggestions for the user
For washes between 40°C and 60°C the type of detergent used needs to be appropriate for the type of fabric and level of soiling. Normal powders are suitable for “white” or colour fast fabrics with high soiling, while liquid detergents or “colour protecting” powders are suitable for coloured fabrics with light levels of soiling.
A guide environmentally friendly and economic use of your appliance. Maximise The Load Size
l Achieve the best use of energy, water, detergent and time by using the recommended maximum load size. Save up to 50% energy by washing a full load instead of 2 half loads. Do you need to pre-wash?
For washing at temperatures below 40°C we recommend the use of liquid detergents or detergents specifically labeled as suitable for low temperature washing.
l For heavily soiled laundry only! SAVE detergent, time, water and between 5 to 15% energy consumption by NOT selecting Prewash for slight to normally soiled laundry.
For washing wool or silk, only use detergents specifically formulated for these fabrics.
Is a hot wash required?
l Pretreat stains with stain remover or soak dried in stains in water before washing to
finished, replace it turning it clockwise. The filter handle will be locked when it is not possible to turn any further and the handle is horizontal. Smearing a small amount of liquid soap on the filter seal will help refitting.
To clean the washing machine exterior, use a damp cloth, avoiding abrasives, alcohol and/or solvents. To maintain a good wash performance we recommend that the soap drawer and pump filters are regularly cleaned. A monthly service wash, using a proprietary cleaner is also recommended.
l Repeat the previous steps in reverse order to reassemble all parts.
Drawer cleaning l We recommend you clean the drawer to avoid accumulating additive residue.
l To do this, extract the drawer using slight force, clean it with running water and reinsert it in its housing.

9. THROUBLESHOOTING AND WARRANTY If you believe the washing machine is not working correctly, consult the quick guide provided below which includes some practical tips on how to fix the most common problems. ERROR CODE FORMAT
l Models with a display: the error is shown by a number preceded by the letter “E” (example: E2 = Error 2).
l Models without display: an error is shown by a sequence of flashes of every LED. The error code is shown by the number of flashes followed by a pause of 5 seconds (example: two flashes – pause 5 seconds – two flashes – repeating = Error 2).
Error shown E2 (with display) 2 flashes of the LEDs (without display)
Possible causes and practical solutions The machine cannot load water. Make sure the water supply tap is open. Make sure the water supply hose isn’t bent, kinked or trapped. Make sure the drain pipe is at the proper height (see installation section).
E3 (with display) 3 flashes of the LEDs (without display) E4 (with display) 4 flashes of the LEDs (without display) E7 (with display) 7 flashes of the LEDs (without display)
Any other code
Close the water supply tap, unscrew the filler hose from the back of the washing machine and make sure the “anti-sand” filter is clean and not blocked. The washing machine does not drain water. Make sure the filter is not clogged. Make sure the drain hose isn’t bent, kinked or trapped. Make sure the home drainage system is not blocked and is allowing water to flow through without obstruction. Try to drain the water in the sink. There is too much foam and/or water. Ensure the correct amount of detergent is being used and the detergent is designed for use in a washing machine. Door problem. Make sure the door is correctly closed. Make sure the clothes inside the drum are not preventing the door from closing fully. If the door is locked, turn off and unplug the washing machine from the electrical supply socket, wait 2-3 minutes and reopen the door. Turn off and unplug the washing machine, wait a minute. Turn on the machine and restart a program. If the error occurs again contact an Authorised Customer Service Centre directly.
Make sure the product is plugged into a working supply socket. Make sure power is on. Make sure the wall socket is working, testing it with another appliance such as a lamp. The door may not be correctly closed: open and close it again. Check whether the required program was correctly selected and the start button pressed. Make sure the washing machine is not in pause or time delay mode. This may be due to a leak from the seal between the tap, supply hose and fill valve; in this case, replace it and tighten the hose connections correctly. Make sure the front filter is correctly closed. The machine is fitted with a detection system that protects the load and product from damage if the load is not balanced before spinning. This may result in:• The machine attempts to balance the load, increasing the time of spin. • Reduction of the speed of spin to decrease vibrations and noise. • The spin cycle aborting to protect the machine and load. If this is experienced remove the load de-tangle it, reload it and restart the spin program. This could be due to the fact that water has not been completely drained: wait a few minutes. If the problem persists, see Error 3 section. Some models include a "no spin" function: make sure it is not selected. Check which options are selected and their effect on the spin cycle.
Strong vibrations / noises are heard during the spin cycle
Excessive detergent can impede the spin cycle, ensure the correct amount of detergent is being used. The washing machine may not be fully levelled: if necessary, adjust the feet as indicated in the specific section. Make sure transport screws, rubber bungs and spacer tubes were removed. Make sure there are no foreign objects inside the drum (coins, hinges, buttons, etc…).
Water leaked on the floor near the washing machine
The standard manufacturer warranty covers faults caused by electrical or mechanical faults in the product due to an act or omission of the manufacturer. If a fault is found to be caused by factors outside the product supplied, miss-use or as a result of the instructions on use not being followed, a charge may be applied.

Warranty The product is guaranteed under the terms and conditions stated on the certificate included with the product. The warranty certificate must be duly filled in and stored, so as to be shown to the Authorised Customer Service Centre in case of need. Proof of purchase must be made available at the time of any warranty related repair.
- cloudier rinse drain water: This effect is tied to the suspended zeolites which do not have negative effects on rinse efficiency. - white powder (zeolites) on laundry at the end of the wash: this is normal, the powder is not absorbed by fabric and does not change its colour. To remove the zeolites, select a rinse programme. In the future consider using slightly less detergent. - foam in the water at last rinse: this does not necessary indicate poor rinsing. Consider using less detergent in future washes. - abundant foam: This is often due to the anionic surfactants found in the detergents which are hard to eliminate from laundry. In this case, do not re-rinse to eliminate these effects: it will not help at all. We suggest conducting a maintenance wash using a proprietary cleaner. If the problem persists or if you suspect a malfunction, immediately contact an Authorised Customer Service Centre. It is always recommended to use original spare parts, that are available at our Authorised Customer Service Centres.
