Open the door by using the handle “A” (Fig. 1, page 6) Select laundry and put it in the machine Close the door Put detergent in the compartments as indicated in the programme guide in this instruction manual Select programme The display will show the settings for the programme selected. Adjust the wash temperature if necessary. Press additional function buttons (if required)
Press the “Start/Pause” button (page 8) The programme starts.
After washing The word “End” will appear on the display. 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 washing machine by turning the selector to “OFF” position. Open the door and remove the laundry. Ensure that the machine is correctly installed in line with the instructions found on page 28.
“Kg DETECTOR” (Function active only on Cotton and Synthetics programmes)
M Through every wash phase “Kg DETECTOR” allows to monitor information on the wash load in the drum. So, as soon as the “Kg DETECTOR” is set in motion, in the first 4 minutes of the wash, it: - adjusts the amount of water required - determines the length of the wash cycle - controls rinsing
P H G F E D C
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 “Kg DETECTOR” is able to decide, by itself, the most suitable programme for each individual wash from the hundreds of possible wash combinations.
“Kg DETECTOR” meets the need for easy use by permitting a simplified programme selection. Infact, the user need only tell the machine the type of fabric in the drum 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.
Door handle To open the door turn the handle as shown in the picture. A special safety device prevents the door from being opened immediately after the end of the cycle. Wait for 2 minutes after the wash cycle has finished and the “Door Security” light has gone out before opening the door. At the end of the cycle turn the programme selector to "OFF" .
The option buttons should be selected before pressing the "Start/Pause" button.
“FAST IRON” button
The Fast Iron function (Not available on COTTON programmes) minimizes creases as much as possible with a uniquely designed anti-crease system that is tailored to specific fabrics. MIXED FABRICS - the water is gradually cooled throughout the final two rinses with no spinning and then a delicate spin assures the maximum relaxation of the fabrics.
B The “Door Security” indicator light is illuminated when the door is fully closed and the machine is ON. DOOR SECURITY indicator light
When "Start/Pause" is pressed on the machine with the door closed the indicator will flash momentarily and then illuminate. If the door is not closed the indicator will continue to flash. A special safety device prevents the door from being opened immediately after the end of the cycle. Wait for 2 minutes after the wash cycle has finished and the “Door Security” light has gone out before opening the door. At the end of the cycle turn the programme selector to "OFF" .
“START/PAUSE” button Press to start the selected cycle .
NOTE: Few seconds after the start the wash cycle will begin. During the first 4 minutes of the wash cycle, the kg detector (active only on cotton and synthetics programmes) will weigh the clothes and update the maximum wash time remaining on the display every five seconds until the weight has been determined. While this function is operating the “kg detector” indicator is on. Changing the settings after the programmes has started (PAUSE) Press and hold the “START/PAUSE” button for about 2 seconds, the flashing lights on the options buttons and time remaining indicator will show that the machine has been paused, adjust as required and press the “START/PAUSE” button again to cancel the flashing lights. If you wish to add or remove items during washing, wait 2 minutes until the safety device unlocks the door. When you have carried out the manoeuvre, close the door, press "Start/Pause" button and the appliance will continue working where it left off.
DELICATE FABRICS – after the final two rinses with no spinning the machine stops in the final rinse stage and the option indicators blink. The load is held in the water in the drum, thus reducing creasing and enabling easier ironing. WOLLENS/HAND WASH – after the final rinse the load is held in the water in the drum, thus reducing creasing and enabling easier ironing and the option indicators blink. To complete the cycle press the Fast Iron button and the machine will pump out the water and complete the cycle. If you do not want to spin the clothes and activate drain only: - Turn the programme selector to the "OFF" position; - Select programme drain only
- Switch on the appliance again by pressing the "Start/Pause" button.
“TEMPERATURE SELECTION” button
When a programme is selected the relevant indicator will light up to show the recommended wash temperature. The Temperature button can be used to decrease or increase the temperature of your chosen wash cycle. Each time the button is pressed, the new temperature level is shown on the Wash Temperature Indicator.
CANCELLING THE PROGRAMME To cancel the programme, set the selector to the OFF position. Select a different programme. Re-set the programme selector to the OFF position. 8
This button allows you to pre-programme the wash cycle to delay the start of the cycle for up to 24 hours. To delay the start use the following procedure: Set the required programme. Press the button once to activate it (h00 appears on the display) and then press it again to set a 1 hour delay (h01 appears on the display); the pre-set delay increases by 1 hour each time the button is pressed, until h24 appears on the display, at which point pressing the button again will reset the delay start to zero.
By pressing this button, which can only be activated in the Cotton cycles, the sensors in the new 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.
Confirm by pressing the “START/PAUSE” button (the light on the display starts to flash). The countdown will begin and when it has finished the programme will start automatically.
“SPIN SELECTION” button
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.
“ALLERGY CARE” button
Note: The machine is fitted with a special electronic device, which prevents the spin cycle should the load be unbalanced. This reduces the noise and vibration in the machine and so prolongs the life of your machine.
“DIGITAL” Display 3
It is possible to modify the spin speed without to pausing the machine.
By pressing this button you can activate a special new wash cycle in the Cotton 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/Hand wash programs.
The spin cycle is very important to remove as much water as possible from the laundry without damaging the fabrics. You can adjust the spin speed of the machine to suit your needs. By pressing this button, it is possible to reduce the maximum speed, and if you wish, the spin cycle can be cancelled. To reactivate the spin cycle press the button until you reach the spin speed you would like to set. To prevent damage to the fabrics, it is not possible to increase the speed over that which is automatically suitable during the selection of the program.
It is possible to cancel the delay start by taking the following action: Press and hold the button for 5 seconds until the display will show the settings for the programme selected. At this stage it is possible to start the programme previously selected by pressing the “START/PAUSE” button or to cancel the process by setting the selector to the OFF position and then selecting another programme.
The display’s indicator system allows you to be constantly informed about the status of the machine: 1) WASH TEMPERATURE When a programme is selected the relevant indicator will light up to show the recommended wash temperature. The Temperature button can be used to decrease or increase the temperature of your chosen wash cycle. Each time the button is pressed, the new temperature level is shown on the Wash Temperature Indicator. 11
2) DOOR LIGHT Once the START/PAUSE button has been pressed the light first flashes then stops flashing and remains on until the end of the wash. 2 minutes after the end of the wash the light goes off to show that the door can now be opened. 3) SPIN SPEED Once the programme has been selected, the maximum spin speed allowed for that programme appears on the display. Pressing the spin button will reduce the speed by 100 rpm each time the button is pressed. The minimum speed allowed is 400 rpm, or it is possible to omit the spin by pressing the spin button repeatedly.
PROGRAMME selector with "OFF" position
When the programme selector is turned the display lights up to show the settings for the programme selected. N.B. To switch the machine off, turn the programme selector to the “OFF” position.
4) DELAY START LIGHT This flashes when delay start has been set. 5) WASH CYCLE TIME When a programme is selected the display automatically shows the maximum cycle duration for a full load, which can vary, depending on the options selected. Once the programme has started you will be kept informed constantly of the time remaining to the end of the wash.The appliance calculates the time to the end of the selected programme based upon a standard loading, during the cycle, the appliance corrects the time to that applicable to the size and composition of the load. 6)Kg DETECTOR Indicator Available on Cotton and Synthetic cycles, during the first 4 minutes of the cycle the intelligent sensor will weigh the laundry and adjust the cycle time, water and electricity consumption accordingly. 7) STAIN LEVEL Once the programme has been selected the indicator light will automatically show the stain level set for that programme. Selecting a different stain level the relevant indicator will light up.
“STAIN LEVEL” button
By selecting this button (active only on COTTON and MIXED FIBRES programmes) there is a choice of 3 levels of wash intensity, depending on how much the fabrics are soiled. Once the programme has been selected the indicator light will automatically show the stain level set for that programme. Selecting a different stain level the relevant indicator will light up. For example: Using this button on the Rapid Wash cycle will enable you to select either a 14, 30 or 44 minute wash cycle.
Today, most detergents have been improved to wash efficiently at lower temperatures, therefore we have set the default temperature settings of each programme to a lower level, saving electricity and reducing the carbon footprint of your machine. You can select an high temperature by pressing the temperature button. Please refer to the programme guide for the maximum temperature to which each programme can be set.
Press the "Start/Pause" button to start the selected cycle. Once a programme is selected the programme selector remains stationary on the selected programme till cycle ends. 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.

SPECIAL “RINSE” PROGRAMME This programme carries out three rinses with a intermediate spin (which can be reduced or excluded by using the correct button). It can be used for rinsing any type of fabric, eg. use after hand-washing.
Programme selector For the various types of fabrics and various degrees of dirt the washing machine has different programme bands according to: wash cycle, temperature and lenght of cycle (see table of washing cycle programmes). COTTON WITH PRE WASH The Cotton programme is designed for maximum washing and rinsing efficiency. With spin cycles in between, the programme guarantees the laundry is rinsed perfectly. The final spin cycle ensures laundry is spun dry as much as possible up to the maximum speed. The Cotton programme includes a Prewash cycle. This option is particularly useful for really dirty loads and can be used independently of the main wash programme. Additional detergent for the Prewash part of the programme should be added to the first compartment of the soap drawer labelled "1" (please refer to the section of this manual entitled “Detergent”). We recommend you use only 20% of the quantity used for the main wash programme. COTTON The Cotton programme is also designed for maximum washing and rinsing efficiency. With spin cycles in between, the programme guarantees the laundry is rinsed perfectly. The final spin cycle ensures laundry is spun dry as much as possible up to the maximum speed. This cycle is set to 40°C, but the temperature may be altered using the Temperature option button. MIXED AND SYNTHETIC FABRICS The main wash and the rinse gives best results thanks to the rotation rhythms of the drum and to the water levels. A gentle spin will mean that the fabrics become less creased.
SPECIAL “SPIN” PROGRAMME Programme “SPIN” carries out a maximum spin (which can be reduced by using the correct button). DRAIN ONLY This programme drains out the water. SPECIAL DELICATE FIBRES This is a new wash cycle which alternates washing and soaking and is particularly recommended for very delicate fabrics. The wash cycle and rinses are carried out with high water levels to ensure best results. WOOLMARK PROGRAMME The special cycle enables to thoroughly wash garments without damaging them. The cycle comprises of alternate periods of activity and pauses. The programme has a maximum temperature of 40° and concludes with 3 rinses and a short spin. 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. JEANS PROGRAMME This specially designed programme maintains the high quality wash performance for resistant fabrics like Jeans. The programme has a maximum temperature of 40°C , ideal for removing the dirty without damaging the elasticity of the fibres.
RAPID PROGRAMME The Rapid programme allows a washing cycle to be completed in just 14 minutes! This programme is particularly suited to slightly dirty cottons and mixed fabrics. Using the Stain Level button on the Rapid cycle will enable you to select either a 14, 30 or 44 minute wash cycle. When selecting the rapid programme, please note that we recommend you use only 20% of the recommended quantities shown on the detergent pack. For information about these programmes please refer to the programmes table. 16
The detergent drawer is split into 3 compartments:
Choice of detergent General purpose detergents
- the compartment labelled "1" is for prewash detergent;
- the compartment labelled " " is for special additives, fabric softeners, fragrances, starch, brighteners etc;
- the compartment labelled "2" is for main wash detergent.
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 -
NOTE: Some Detergents are Difficult to utilise. Ensure to use an in drum dispenser if recommended by the detergent Manufacturer. 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.
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.
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 “2” of the drawer. For heavily soiled laundry, choose a programme with prewash. Put 1/4 of the detergent in compartment “1”, 3/4 in compartment “2” of the drawer. When using water softeners, first put in the detergent, then add the softener to compartment “2”. 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 19. Add any other laundry aids (see page 19). 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. Adjust the wash temperature if necessary. 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.
The word “End” will appear on the display. 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.
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: 1) Open the flap
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. 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.
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.
2) Only available on certain models: Pull out the corrugated hose, remove the stopper and drain the water into a container. 3) Before removing the filter, place an absorbent towel below the filter cap to collect the small amount of water likely to be inside the pump 4) Turn the filter anti-clockwise until it stops in the vertical position. Remove and clean. 5) After cleaning, replace by turning the notch on the end of the filter clockwise. Then follow all procedures described above in reverse order.

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. 26
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.
