CANCELLING THE PROGRAMME To cancel the programme the programme selector should be rotated to the "OFF" position.
The option buttons should be selected before pressing the "Start/Pause" button.
FAST WASH BUTTON
Press the button to select or deselect this function. Pressing this button reduces the time of the wash programme by a maximum of 50 minutes depending on the programme and the temperature selected. The "Fast Wash" button can be used for washing loads of 1 to 6 kg. This option may only be utilised on COTTONS and SYNTHETICS programmes.
DELAY START BUTTON Appliance start time can be set with this button, delaying the start by 3, 6 or 9 hours. Proceed as follows to set a delayed start: Select a programme (“STOP” indicator light blinks)
Press "Delay Start" button (each time the button is pressed the start will be delayed by 3, 6 or 9 hours respectively and the corresponding light will blink). Press "Start/Pause" to commence the Delay Start operation (the indicator light associated with the selected Delay Start time stops blinking and remains ON). At the end of the required time delay the programme will start.
ALLERGY CARE BUTTON
By pressing this button you can activate a special new wash cycle in the Cottons and Mixed Fabrics programs, thanks to the new Sensor Activa System. This option treats with care the fibres of garments and the delicate skin of those who wear them. The load is washed in a much larger quantity of water and this, together with the new combined action of the drum rotation cycles, where water is filled and emptied, will give you garments which have been cleaned and rinsed to perfection. The amount of water in the wash is increased so that the detergent dissolves perfectly, ensuring an efficient cleaning action. The amount of water is also increased during the rinse procedure so as to remove all traces of detergent from the fibres. This function has been specifically designed for people with delicate and sensitive skin, for whom even a very small amount of detergent can cause irritation or allergy. You are advised to also use this function for children’s clothing and for delicate fabrics in general, or when washing garments made of towelling, where the fibres tend to absorb a greater quantity of detergent. To ensure the best performance for your wash, this function is always activated on the Delicates and Woollens programs.
To cancel the Delay Start function : press the "Delay Start" button until the indicator lights will be off (The "STOP" light blinks) and the programme can be started manually using the "Start/Pause" button or switch off the appliance by turning the programme selector to "OFF" position.
Warning: If there is any break in the power supply while the machine is operating, a special memory stores the selected programme and, when the power is restored, it continues where it left off.
STAIN VANISH BUTTON
By pressing this button, which can only be activated in the Cotton cycles, the sensors in the new Activa system come into operation. They affect both the selected temperature, keeping it at a constant level throughout the wash cycle, and the mechanical function of the drum. The drum is made to turn at two different speeds at crucial moments. When the detergent enters the garments, the drum rotates in such a way that the detergent is distributed in a uniform manner; during the wash and rinse procedures, however, the speed increases in order to maximise the cleaning action. Thanks to this special system, the efficiency of the wash procedure is improved WITHOUT ANY INCREASE IN THE LENGTH OF THE PROGRAM. 8
In order to manage your time better, this washing machine features an indicator light system that keeps you constantly informed on the remaining cycle time. Indicator light 90: Remaining time above 60 minutes. Indicator light 60: Remaining time less than 60 minutes. Indicator light 30: Remaining time less than 30 minutes. Indicator light 15: Remaining time less than 15 minutes.
PROGRAMME SELECTOR WITH "OFF" POSITION
Rotates in both directions. The machine is turned on by selecting a programme via the programme selector. This status will be indicated by the "STOP" indicator light flashing, this light will continue to flash until the machine has started or the machine is returned to the "OFF" position.
Indicator light STOP: End of the programme. Press the "Start/Pause" button to start the selected cycle.
BUTTONS INDICATOR LIGHT
Once a programme is selected the programme selector remains stationary on the selected programme till cycle ends.
The indicator light around the option buttons will light when specific options are selected. Switch off the washing machine by turning the selector to "OFF".
Note: The programme selector must be returned to the "OFF" position at the end of each cycle or when starting a subsequent wash cycle prior to the next programme being selected and started.
Please read these notes When washing heavily soiled laundry it is recommended the load is reduced to 3 kg maximum. * Programmes according to CENELEC EN 60456. ●
When only a limited number of articles have stains which require treatment with liquid bleaching agents, preliminary removal of stain can be carried out in the washing machine. Pour the bleach into the liquid bleach container, inserted into the compartment marked "II" in the detergent drawer, and set the special programme "RINSE". When this phase has terminated, turn the programme selector to the "OFF" position, add the rest of the fabrics and proceed with a normal wash on the most suitable programme.
Programme selector For the various types of fabrics and various degrees of dirt the washing machine has 4 different programme bands according to: wash cycle, temperature and length of cycle (see table of washing cycle programmes). 1 RESISTANTS FABRICS The programmes have been designed for a maximum wash and the rinses, with spin intervals, ensure perfect rinsing. The final spin gives more efficient removal of water.
MIXED/ 2 MIXED AND SYNTHETIC FABRICS The main wash and rinse gives the best results thanks to the rotation SYNTHETICS rhythms of the drum and to the water levels. A gentle spin will mean that the fabrics become less creased. 3 SPECIAL DELICATE FIBRES This is a new wash cycle which alternates washing and soaking and is particularly recommended for very delicate fabrics such as Pure Machine Washable Wool. The wash cycle and rinses are carried out with high water levels to ensure best results.
4. SPECIALS SPECIAL “HAND WASH” This washing machine also has a gentle Hand Wash programme cycle. This programme allows a complete washing cycle for garments specified as “Hand Wash only” on the fabric care label. The programme has a temperature of 30°C and concludes with 3 rinses and a slow spin. SPECIAL “RINSE” PROGRAMME This programme carries out three rinses with a intermediate spin. It can be used for rinsing any type of fabric, eg. use after hand-washing. This programme can be also used during Bleaching (see table of washing cycle programmes). SPECIAL “FAST SPIN” PROGRAMME Programme “FAST SPIN” carries out a maximum spin. DRAIN ONLY This programme drains out the water. 14
“MIX & WASH SYSTEM” PROGRAMME This is an exclusive Candy system and involves 2 great advantages for the consumer: • to be able to wash together different type of fabrics (e.g. cotton + synthetic etc…) NON-FAST COLOUREDS; • to wash with a considerable energy saving. The "Mix & Wash" programme has a temperature of 40°C and alternate dynamic phases (the drum that turns) to static phases (fabrics in soak in phase of rest) with the programme duration that almost reaching the 3 hours. The energy consumption for the complete cycle is only 850 W/h. Important: • the first washing of new coloureds fabrics must be done separately; • in every case, never mix NON-FAST COLOUREDS fabrics. 32 MINUTE RAPID PROGRAMME 50°C The 32 minute rapid programme allows a complete washing cycle to be carried out in approximately 30 minutes, with up to a maximum load of 2 kg and a temperature of 50°C. When selecting the "32 minute rapid" programme, please note that we recommend you use only 20% of the recommended quantities shown on the detergent pack.
FUZZY LOGIC Through every wash phase Fuzzy Logic allows the Activa Smart to monitor information on the wash load in the drum. So, as soon as the Activa Smart is set in motion it: • adjusts the amount of water required • determines the length of the wash cycle • controls rinsing according to the type of fabric selected to be washed it: • adjusts the rhythm of drum rotation for the type of fabric being washed • recognises the presence of lather, increasing, if necessary, the amount of water during rinsing • adjusts the spin speed according to the load, thus avoiding any imbalance. In this way the ACTIVA SMART is able to decide, by itself, the most suitable programme for each individual wash from the hundreds of possible wash combinations. Fuzzy Logic meets the need for easy use by permitting a simplified programme selection. In fact, the user need only tell the machine the type of fabric in the drum (cotton, mixtures, delicate or woollens) and the degree of soiling, to obtain a perfect wash with the highest level of drying possible with a spin which really cares for your clothes. 15
The detergent drawer is split into 3 compartments:
Choice of detergent General purpose detergents
- the compartment labelled "I" is for prewash detergent;
- the compartment labelled " " is for special additives, fabric softeners, fragrances, starch, brighteners etc;
- the compartment labelled "II" is for main wash detergent. If liquid detergents are used, please insert the special container supplied into the compartment marked “II” in the detergent drawer. This ensures that the liquid detergent enters the drum at the right stage of the wash cycle. This special container must be inserted into the compartment marked "II" in the detergent drawer, also when you wish to use the "RINSE" programme as BLEACHING cycle.
NOTE: Some Detergents are Difficult to utilise. Ensure to use an in drum dispenser if recommended by the detergent Manufacturer.
Powder detergents, for a thorough wash, with bleaching agent, particularly suitable for use in hot wash programmes (60°C and over), for heavily soiled and stained laundry. Liquid detergents, particularly suitable for grease stains, such as greasy skin marks, cosmetics and oil. These detergents are not suitable for washing stained laundry, as they do not contain bleach. Biological detergents, not all the products available give a really thorough wash.
Additional laundry aids -
Water softener, means less detergent can be used where water hardness is classed as hard to very hard. Prewash substances, for the programmed treatment of stains prior to the main wash. Using them means the subsequent wash can be at a low temperature or with bleach-free detergents. Fabric softener, prevents static build-up in synthetic fabrics and softens fabrics. If you own a tumble dryer, clothes are softened even without the use of a fabric softener.
Do not put solvents in the washing machine! Keep detergents and other laundry products out of children’s reach. Before pouring in the detergent check that there are no foreign bodies in the detergent drawer. Dosage details are usually shown on the detergent packaging. Follow those instructions.
Note: only put liquid products in the compartment labelled “ ”. The machine is programmed to automatically take up additives during the final rinse stage for all wash cycles.
Dosages Only use detergents which are suitable for use in a washing machine. You will obtain the best results from your wash with the minimum use of chemical products and the best care for your laundry if you take into consideration the degree of soiling as well as the type of detergent to choose. The amount of detergent to use depends on: - water hardness: depending on the hardness of the water and the type of detergent used, it is possible to reduce the amount of detergent. - the degree of soiling: it is possible to reduce the amount of detergent used depending on the degree of soiling. - amount of laundry: it is possible to reduce the amount of detergent when washing only a small amount of laundry.
Useful advice for users Tips on using your domestic appliance in the most environmentally-friendly and economical way
Do a full load in your washing machine To prevent any possible waste of energy, water or detergent we recommend that you put a full load in your washing machine, not exceed the recommended maximum load size. Up to 50% energy saving can be made with one full load compared to two half load washes
When is prewashing really needed? Dosage for powder detergent For normal and low concentration detergents: for normally soiled laundry choose a programme without prewash. Put the detergent in compartment “II” of the drawer. For heavily soiled laundry, choose a programme with prewash. Put 1/4 of the detergent in compartment “I”, 3/4 in compartment “II” of the drawer. When using water softeners, first put in the detergent, then add the softener to compartment “II”. For highly concentrated detergents not in single dose format, follow what is shown on pack exactly as regards type and amount of dosage. To avoid the difficulty of checking if the detergent has been taken up, use the dosage aids provided in the detergent packaging.
Only with particularly dirty loads! Energy savings of 5 to 15% are made by not selecting the prewash option for normal soiled laundry.
Which wash temperature should you choose? Using stain removers before machine washing reduces the need to wash at temperatures over 60°C. Energy savings of up to 50% can be made by using a 60°C wash temperature rather than 90°C
Liquid detergent dosage Liquid detergents may be used in accordance with the instructions on the relevant packaging, for all programmes without prewash, by using the special container which is placed in the drum or, for those models that have it, in the special insert for liquid detergents.
It is recommended you wash only items which are machine washable with water and detergent and not dry-clean items.
If you need to wash rugs, bedspreads or other heavy items, it is best not to spin them.
Sort the laundry according to fabric type, degree of soiling and wash temperature: Always follow the wash care advice on the garment label for the most suitable care and treatment of the laundry Laundry for hot wash Coloured, easy-care materials Delicates and wool Wash by hand
The correct way to wash Preparing the laundry A) Select the laundry. Loading the laundry B) Open the porthole. C) Put the laundry in the washing machine. Close the porthole again, ensuring that no items of laundry are obstructing the lock. Putting detergent in machine D) Open the drawer, choose the detergent and put in the correct amount, according to the manufacturer’s instructions and the advice on page 17. Add any other laundry aids (see page 17). Close the drawer again.
Items labelled with the following symbol are not suitable for machine washing: Dry clean For very delicate items, such as net curtains, underwear, tights etc., you are advised to use a laundry net or wash bag. Woollen items must be labelled with the "Pure New Wool" symbol to be washed in the machine , and must also be labelled "non-matting" or "machine washable". Colour often leaks from new coloured items. This can then colour other lighter items being washed. We therefore recommend that coloured items should be washed for the first time separately. For future washes, colourfast items can only be washed with whites up to 40°C.
Refer to the programme guide or the programme descriptions on the machine to select the most suitable programme. Turning the selector knob, the required programme is activated. Wait for the “STOP” indicator light to flash. Press additional function buttons (if required). Check that the tap is turned on and that the discharge hose is positioned correctly. Press the "Start/Pause" button. When the "Start/Pause" button is pressed the machine sets the working sequence in motion.
Note: when sorting laundry -
Selecting the wash programme
check there are no metal objects in the laundry (such as paper clips, safety pins, pins, coins etc...); button up pillowcases, fasten zips, hook & eye fasteners, belts and long dressing gown cords; remove curtain hooks; pay close attention to the labels on items if you notice stubborn stains whilst sorting the laundry, remove them using a special detergent or a special stain remover.
The programme carries out with the programme selector stationary on the selected programme till cycle ends. Warning: If there is any break in the power supply while the machine is operating, a special memory stores the selected programme and, when the power is restored, it continues where it left off.
When the programme is finished
- We recommend that you do not do a full load of towelling items only as these become too heavy since they absorb a lot of water.
At the end of the programme the indicator light “STOP” will go on. Wait for the door lock to be released (about 2 minutes after the programme has finished). The "Door Security" indicator light will go out. Switch off the machine by turning the programme selector on the “OFF” position. Open the door and remove the laundry. Turn off the tap.
Cleaning and routine maintenance Do not use alcohol-based scourers and / or thinners on the outside of your washing machine, just a wipe with a damp cloth will suffice. The washing machine needs very little maintenance: - Cleaning the drawer compartments. - Cleaning the filter. - Cleaning the door glass.
Regularly clean the door glass with a damp cloth. A build up of soiling and residues from the water may result in water leaking from the door. Do not use abrasive cleaners as they can scratch the surface.
Cleaning the drawer compartments Even if it is not strictly necessary, it is good to clean the compartments for bleaching detergents and additives occasionally. A) To do this you just need to pull them out firmly, but without forcing them. B) Clean everything in the compartment under running water. C) Put everything back in its proper place.
Cleaning the filter The washing machine is fitted with a special filter for handling large deposits which could block the discharge hose (coins, buttons etc.) and which can, therefore, be easily retrieved. We recommend that the filter be cleaned at least once a month. The cleaning operation is as follows:
Transporting the appliance or long periods when appliance is not in use If the appliance is being transported or is out of use for long periods in unheated places, all remaining water must be completely removed from the hoses. Ensure mains power is off, then unclip the hose and point it downwards into a basin until all the water has emptied out. When finished, repeat the operation in the reverse order.
1) Ease off the plinth cover as shown in picture. 2) Use the base as a tray to collect left over water in filter. 3) Loosen the screw which holds the filter in place. Turn the filter anti-clockwise until it stops in the vertical position. Remove and clean. 4) After cleaning, replace the filter and lock by tightening the filter screw. Then follow all procedures described above in reverse order.
Attention: if the filter needs cleaning while there is washing still in the drum, follow the instructions on the following page to empty the water. This will prevent excessive loss of water via the filter. 22

Washing machine not completely level. Transit brackets not removed yet. Load not distributed evenly.
Adjust the special adjustable feet. Remove transit brackets. Rearrange the laundry evenly.
7. Door will not open
Two minutes have not elapsed since the programme finished.
Wait two minutes.
The machine makes a different noise when spinning! This is because it has a brush motor for better performance.
Only a small level of water can be seen in the drum! This is because new machines do not use much water, yet achieve the same standard of washing and rinsing.
Note: The use of environmentally-friendly, phosphate-free detergents can have the following effects: - waste water from rinsing may be cloudier because of the presence of zeolites held in suspension, without the rinse performance being adversely affected; - presence of white powder (zeolites) on laundry after washing, which is not absorbed by the fabric and does not alter the colour of the fabric. - The presence of foam in the final rinsing water is not necessarily an indication of poor rinsing. - Anionic surfactants used in washing detergent formulae often prove to be difficult to remove from the laundry itself and, even in small quantities, can still cause considerable foam production. - Carrying out more rinse cycles does not serve any purpose in such cases.
