  62 4. PRACTICAL HINTS When sorting laundry, make sure: - have eliminated metallic objects such as hair clips, pins, coins, from laundry; - to have buttoned pillow cases, closed zips, tied loose belts and long robe ribbons; - 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. 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. lLeave the appliance’s door slightly open between washes, to prevent possible bad smells developing inside the machine. Tips on how to save money and not damage the environment when using your appliance. lLoad the machine to the highest capacity shown in the programme table for each programme - this will allow you to SAVE energy and water. lNoise and residual laundry moisture are affected by spin speed: a faster spin is associated with greater noise and lower residual moisture in the laundry. lThe most efficient programmes in terms of combined use of water and energy are usually the longer-lasting ones with lower temperature. 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? 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. Is a hot wash required? lPretreat stains with stain remover or soak dried in stains in water before washing to reduce the necessity of a hot wash programme. Save energy by using a low temperature wash programme. Before using a drying programme (WASHER-DRYERS) lSAVE energy and time by selecting a high spin speed to reduce the water content in laundry before using a drying programme. Below is a short guide with tips and advice on the use of detergent. lOnly use detergents suitable for machine washing. lSelect your detergent according to the type of fabric (cotton, delicates, synthetics, wool, silk, etc.), the colour, the type and level of soiling and the programmed washing temperature. lTo use the right amount of detergent, softener or any other additives, carefully follow the manufacturer’s instructions every time: correctly using the appliance with the right dose allows you to avoid waste and to reduce the environmental impact. Load tips Useful advice for saving Dosing the detergent

  EN 63 lToo much detergent leads to excessive foam, which prevents the cycle being carried out correctly. It could also affect the quality of the washing and rinsing. The use of ecological detergents without phosphates may cause the following effects: - 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. 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. 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. For washing at temperatures below 40°C we recommend the use of liquid detergents or detergents specifically labeled as suitable for low temperature washing. For washing wool or silk, only use detergents specifically formulated for these fabrics.

WARNING: DO NOT use acid products (for example vinegar) or aggressive detergents to clean the drawer, in order to avoid damaging the seals and/or internal parts of the appliance.
Page: 11
  EN 65 lThe appliance has a special filter that traps larger residues that could block the draining system, such as buttons or coins (depending on the model, consider version A or B). We recommend checking and cleaning the filter 5 or 6 times a year. lDisconnect the machine from the power supply. lEnsure all the water has been emptied from the drum. lBefore unscrewing the filter, we recommend you place an absorbent cloth under it to keep the floor dry. A small amount of water will come out of the filter as you remove it - this is normal. lTurn the filter counter-clockwise to the limit stop. lRemove and clean the filter; when 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. lRepeat the previous steps in reverse order to reassemble all parts. B A lIf the appliance is kept in a non-heated room for long periods of time, all water residues must be completely removed from the pipes. lDisconnect the machine from the power supply socket. lDetach the tube from the drainage system and clip on the rear of the machine and lower it, fully draining water into a bowl. lSecure the drain tube with the drainage system and clip on the rear of the machine when finished. lKeep the door glass and gasket clean. Cleaning the pump filter Suggestions for moves or prolonged disuse FOR MODELS WITH AUTOMATIC LIQUID DETERGENT AND SOFTENER DOSING SYSTEM: should you need to tilt or move the machine, remove the detergent drawer before proceeding, keeping it horizontal so as to avoid any leakage.

ERROR CODE FORMAT Error shown Possible causes and practical solutions E2 (with display) 2 flashes of the LEDs (without display) 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). 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. Check that the filter is not clogged or that there are no foreign bodies inside the filter compartment that can obstruct the proper flow of water. E3 (with display) 3 flashes of the LEDs (without display) The washing machine does not drain water. Check that the filter is not clogged or that there are no foreign bodies inside the filter compartment that can obstruct the proper flow of water. 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. E4 (with display) 4 flashes of the LEDs (without display) 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. E7 (with display) 7 flashes of the LEDs (without display) 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. Any other code 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.

  EN 79 OTHER ANOMALIES Problem Possible causes and practical solutions The washing machine does not work / start 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. Water leaked on the floor near the washing machine 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 washing machine does not spin 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. Excessive detergent can impede the spin cycle, ensure the correct amount of detergent is being used. Strong vibrations / noises are heard during the spin cycle 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…). 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, misuse or as a result of the instructions on use not being followed, a charge may be applied.
