Tar Dab with fresh butter, rub in turpentine then wash immediately.
Wax Scrape away, then run a hot iron between two sheets of absorbent paper. Then rub in cotton with
turpentine or methyl alcohol.
Chewing gum Rub in nail polish remover and wipe with a clean rag.
Mold Cotton and white linen should be placed in a solution of 5 parts water, one bleach and a spoon of vinegar,
then washed immediately. For other white fabrics, use hydrogen peroxide at 10 volumes and wash immediately.
Lipstick Dab with ether on wool or cotton. Use tricloroetilene for silk.
Nail polish Place a sheet of absorbent paper on the side of the stain, wet it with nail polish remover, shifting the
garment as the sheet gradually changes colour.
Grass Dab with a wad of cotton soaked in methyl alcohol.

How to wash almost anything
Curtains.
Curtains tend to crease a great
deal. Here is a tip to reduce
creasing: fold the curtains and
place them in a pillow case or

else, so that the overall weight
does not exceed the half load.
Remember to use the specific
programme whichautoma-

For best results, we
recommend you use a
specific detergent, taking
care not to wash more
than 1 kg of laundry.
WOOLCYCLE

- Instructions for installation and use
You must add detergent and any
additives following the dosage
recommended by the
manufacturers:generally,allthe
indications you need are on the
box. Doses vary according to
wash load, the water hardness
and how soiled the washing is.
Experience will help you select
the right dosage almost
automatically: it will become
yoursecret.
Before pouring in the detergent
forpre-washingincompartment
1, make sure that the extra
compartment for bleach 4 has
not been inserted.
When pouring in the softener in
compartment3,avoid making it
overflow from the grate.
The washing machine
automatically adds the softener
to the wash in each programme.
In compartment 1:
Detergent for pre-washing (powder)
In compartment 2:
Detergent for washing
(powder or liquid)
In compartment 3:
Additives (softeners, perfumes, etc.)
In compartment 4:
Bleach and delicate bleach.
Thesecretsofthedetergentdispenser
It’s important for a good wash
The first secret is the easiest: the detergent
dispenserisopenedbyrotatingitoutwards.
Liquid detergent is to be poured
into compartment 2 only a few
secondsbeforestartingthewash
cycle.
Remember that liquid detergent
isparticularlyindicatedforwash
cycles of up to 60 degrees and
thosenotrequiringpre-washing.
Liquidorpowderdetergentsare
sold together with special
containers that are to be placed
directly inside the washing
machine drum,according to the
instructions found on the
detergent box.
Neverusehandwashdetergent,
because it may form too much
foam, which could damage the
washingmachine.
Detergents that are specifically
indicated for both hand and
machinewashareanexception.
One last secret: when washing
with cold water, always reduce
theamountofdetergentyouuse:
it dissolves less easily in cold
water than in hot water, so part
of it would be wasted.
Cutting costs efficiently A guide to
environmentally
friendly and economic
use of your appliance.
MAXIMISE THE LOAD SIZE
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 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.
IS A HOT WASH REQUIRED?
Pretreat stains with stain remover or soak dried in stains in water before
washing to reduce the necessity of a hot wash programme.
SAVE up to 50% energy by using a 60°C wash programme.
BEFORE USING A DRYING PROGRAMME ...
SAVE energy and time by selecting a high spin speed to reduce the water
content in laundry before using a drying programme.
Bleachcycle
Ifbleachingisnecessary,theex-
tra case 4 (provided) must be
inserted into compartment 1 of
thedetergentdispenser.
When pouring in the bleach, be
careful not to exceed the "max"
level indicated on the central
pivot(see illustration).
The use of the additional bleach
container excludes the
possibilityofusingthepre-wash
cycle. Traditional bleach can
only be used on sturdy white
fabrics, whereas delicate
bleach can be used for
coloured fabrics, synthetics
and for wool.
TheStain removaloptionisnot
available in the Delicates
fabric sector and with "Special
wash programmes" Class A at
40°C and Daily.
Should you wish to bleach
separately,youshouldpourthe
bleach into the extra
compartment 4, set special
programme Rinse only and the
Stain removal option.
Should you wish to bleach
during the normal wash cycle,
pourthedetergentandbleachin
their respective compartments
and enable the Stain removal
option.
The detergent dispenser can be
removed and cleaned: just lift it up
and pull it outwards ,as indicated in
the figure. Then leave it under running
water for a few minutes.

RIGHT WRONG
Close the tap
after every wash
cycle.
Limit the use of
the washing
machine’s
hydraulic system
and eliminate
leakage risks
when no-one is at
home.
Always leave the
appliance door
ajar to avoid bad
odours.
Clean the
appliance’s
exteriors
delicately.
To clean the
exteriors and the
rubber parts of
the appliance,
always use a rag
dipped in
lukewarm water
and soap.
Leave the washing
machine plugged in
while cleaning.
Even during mainte-
nance, the appliance
should always be
unplugged.
Use solvents and
aggressive abrasives.
Never use solvents or
abrasives to clean the
external and rubber
parts of the washing
machine.
Neglect the detergent
dispenser.
It is removable and
can easily be cleaned
by leaving it under
running water.

When in need, check the pump and the rubber hose.
comes equipped with a self-cleaning pump that does not require any cleaning or maintenance. Small
objects may accidentally fall into the pump: coins, hair clips, loose buttons and other small items. To avoid possible
damage, they are withheld in an accessible pre-chamber, situated at the lower end of the pump.
It is important to
wash the detergent
dispenser regularly.
To prevent dried
washing powder from
accumulating, place
the dispenser under
running water for a
few minutes.
Do not forget to empty all pockets: small objects can cause
damage to your friend .
To access this pre-chamber, just remove the panel covering the
bottom of the washing machine using a screwdriver (figure 1);
then lift the cover rotating it anti-clockwise (figure 2) and check
its contents accurately.
The rubber hose
Check the rubber hose at least once a year. If you see any
cracks, replace it immediately. When you use your washing
machine, water pressure is very strong and a cracked tube
could easily split open.
Attention: make sure that the wash cycle has come to a full stop and unplug the appliance before removing the
lid as well as before any type of maintenance procedure. It is normal to find that a little water comes out after
removing the lid. When replacing the panel, make sure you insert the hooks situated at the bottom of the washing
machine in the right slots before pushing it back against the appliance.

Your safety and that of
your children
Moreandmoreimportant
has been built in compliance
with the strictest international safety
regulations. To protect you and all your
family.
Read these indications and all
the information in this manual
carefully: they are an
important source, not only of
numerous useful tips, but also
of vital information on safety,
use and maintenance.
1. should
not be installed in an
outdoor environment,
not even when a roof
shelters the area, because
it may be very dangerous
to leave it exposed to rain
and thunderstorms.
2. It must only be used by
adults and exclusively for
washig clothes following
theinstructionsprovidedin
this manual.
3. Shouldithavetobemoved,
proceed with the help of
two or three people and
handle it with the utmost
care. Never try to do this
alone, because the
appliance is very heavy.
4. Beforeloadingthewashing
machine, make sure the
drum is empty.
5. Nevertouchthewashing
machine when barefoot
or with wet or damp
hands or feet.
6. Never use extensions or
multiple plugs,which are
particularly dangerous in
humid environments. The
power supply cable must
never be bent or
dangerouslycompressed.
7. Neveropenthedetergent
dispenser while the
applianceisfunctioning;
do not use hand wash
detergent because the
abundance of foam could
damageitsinternalparts.
How to change the power supply cable
The
power supply cable is
special and can be
purchased exclusively
from authorised
TechnicalServiceCentres.
To replace it, do as follows:
1. Make sure that
is
switched off and unplugged.
2. Remove the covering lid
by unscrewing the two
screws I, and then pull it
towards you [fig. 3].
3. Disconnect the wires
from the radio interference
suppressor F [fig. 4] taking
care as to their position
(Blue=N wire; Brown=L
wire) leaving the earth wire
until last .
N.B.: letters L, N and the
symbol are indicated on
the radio interference
suppressor.
4. Remove the upper part
of the cord lead slightly
from the back panel of the
appliance, pull the power
supply cable upwards and
take it out [fig. 5].
To connect the new power
supply cable, do the reverse.
To put the covering lid back
on, rest it on the washing
machine [fig. 6] and let it
slide forwards until the
hooks situated on the front
slide into the special slots
formed into the control
panel and tighten the
screws back on.
Fig. 3 Fig. 4 Fig. 5 Fig. 6
8. Neverpullontheplug or
the washing machine to
disconnect it from the wall
socket: it is extremely
dangerous.
9. While the appliance is
functioning, do not touch
the drain water as it
could reach very high
temperatures. The
appliance door, during
wash cycles, tends to
become heated; keep it
out of children’s reach.
Never force the washing
machine door because
this could damage the
safety block on the
opening, which serves to
protect from accidental
openings.
10. In case of malfunctio-
ning, first close the
watertapandunplugthe
appliance from the wall
socket; do not under any
circumstances touch
internal parts in order to
attempt repairs.
I only want an
authorised specialised
technician with original
Ariston spare parts!
