EN 13 4. USING THE APPLIANCE FOR WASHING 4.1 PREPARING THE ITEMS FOR WASHING 1. Subdivide the items for washing by fabric type and colour fastness. 2. Wash white and coloured items separately. New coloured items should be washed separately the first time. Normally, items carry labels with washing instructions. The following is a short description of the symbols used on these labels. WASHING BLEACHING Machine wash at max. 90°C Bleaching allowed Do not bleach Machine wash at max. 60°C IRONING Machine wash at max. 40°C Hot iron Warm iron Cool iron Do not iron Machine wash at max. 30°C DRY CLEANING Machine wash, delicate cycle at max. 60°C Any solvent Any solvent ex- cept trichloroe- thylene Petroleum sol- vent and R113 Do not dry clean Machine wash, delicate cycle at max. 40°C Machine wash, delicate cycle at max. 30°C DRYING Hand wash High tem- perature Less than 60°C Do not tumble dry Do not wash Warning!  Do not wash unhemmed or torn items as they may fray.  Unrelated items in the wash may damage the garments or parts of the washer-dryer. So: empty pockets and turn them inside-out, and remove wheels from curtains or wrap them in a mesh bag.  Wash very small items (belts, handkerchiefs, socks, padded bras, etc.) in a white canvas bag. Fasten press- studs and zips and sew on loose buttons.  The use of modern detergents and the correct washing temperature is generally sufficient to remove stains from fabrics. However, some difficult stains such as grass, fruit, egg, blood, rust, ballpoint pen, etc. should be dealt with before washing. Depending on the type of fabric, there are a large number of commercial stain removers on the market. In all cases, stains should be cleaned or diluted at once, since the older they are, the harder they are to remove.  Failure to comply with washing guidance symbols may result in damage to the items washed. Wool – Only wool marked as pure new wool, with the mark, or labelled "shrink-proof, machine-washable" can be washed in a washing machine on the specific programme; other types of wool should be hand-washed or dry- cleaned. 4.2 OPENING THE DOOR The appliance is fitted with a safety device which prevents the door from being opened while the programme is in progress. 1. Check that all the water has been drained from the tank and the drum is at a standstill. Warning!  If the washing programme is interrupted, it will be from 3 to 15 minutes before the door can be opened, depending on the temperature reached inside the appliance. Warning! The water may still be boiling hot if the wash was at high temperature. Do not open the door if there is still water in the drum! 4.3 LOADS OF WASHING As far as possible, to save electricity, it is more economical to wash complete loads of the various types of fabric. Shake out the laundry before loading, and alternate large and small items. It is best to weight the load the first few times, after which you will be able to rely on your experience.
Page: 14
EN 14 4.4 LOADING THE ITEMS FOR WASHING 1. Open the door and load the laundry, distributing it evenly over the drum, with items opened out and not bundled together; if possible, large and small items should be well mixed. 2. The washing machine covered by this manual can be loaded with up to 7kg of laundry for each wash. If this weight is exceeded, the washing results will be poor and the appliance may malfunction. 3. To save energy it is more economical to wash full loads of the various types of fabric, following the guidance on quantities provided in the "Programmes Table" supplied in this manual. 4. Close the door by pressing against the frame until you hear it click shut. Take care not to trap items of laundry between the door and the rubber gasket. Warning!  If the door is not properly closed, a safety device prevents the washer-dryer from starting.  Do not exceed the maximum load: overloading adversely affects washing results. 4.5 ADDING DETERGENT AND ADDITIVE The internal tray comprises three compartments, marked with the symbols prewash detergent main wash detergent for fabric conditioner, starch, additives, etc. (e.g. treatment products). The additives are added to the washing tank automatically during the final rinse. The main wash detergent compartment has a tang allowing the use of liquid detergent. To insert it, pull it towards the front and then lower it. Following the recommendations in the "Programmes Table" supplied with this manual, place the detergent and any addi- tives in the drawer before the start of the programme. Never fill with liquids above the maximum level marked; otherwise the trays will empty too quickly. Before pouring dense additives into the container, dilute with a little water to ensure they do not clog the outlet. Use only low-foam detergents suitable for use in a washer-dryer. The amount of detergent must be decided in relation of the hard- ness of the water, the type and quantity of items loaded, and their degree of dirt. This will provide the desired effect with optimal detergent consumption. On detergent packs the recommended dose is indicated for 4 levels of water hardness and for loads of 4-5 kg of laundry with average dirt levels. Request information about the water's hardness from your water supply company. Water hardness Level of hardness French degrees fH German degrees dH Soft Up to 15° Up to 8° Medium 15° - 25° 8° - 14° Hard 25° - 40° 14° - 22° Very hard More than 40° More than 22°
Page: 15
EN 15 4.6 POWDER DETERGENT DOSES Laundry with normal dirt 1. Choose a programme without prewash. 2. Pour the total amount of detergent shown on the pack into the main wash compartment of the detergent drawer. Very dirty laundry 1. Choose a programme with prewash. 2. Place ¼ of the recommended amount of detergent in the prewash compartment of the detergent drawer and ¾ of the detergent in the wash compartment. Warning!  If no recommended doses are provided, for delicate items in synthetic fibre use from ½ to 2/3 of the recom- mended dose for washing tough cotton fabrics.  Only neutral detergents recommended for wool should be used on the wool programme.  Use the doses recommended by the detergent producer. 4.7 LIQUID DETERGENT DOSES 1. Pour the dose required into the measuring cap supplied with the bottle of liquid detergent and place it in the drum, or use the main wash compartment of the detergent drawer, fitting the insert provided. 2. The scale on the red insert is intended as an aid when deciding the dose of liquid detergent. Warning!  Liquid detergents can be used, at the doses recommended by the producer, only for the main wash, i.e. in all programmes without prewash. 4.8 DESCALERS Descalers can be added to the prewash and main wash compartments as recommended by their producers. Place the detergent in the compartments first, followed by the descaler. 4.9 PROGRAMMES AND FUNCTIONS For advice on selecting programmes in relation to the type of fabric, refer to the "Programmes Table", sup- plied with this manual.

EN 21 5. USING THE APPLIANCE FOR DRYING 5.1 GENERAL During drying cycles, the water tap must be turned on and the drain hose correctly positioned. This appliance can be set to perform wash only, dry only and wash-and-dry programmes. In the wash-and-dry programme, the appliance switches from washing to drying automatically, with no need to use the controls (at the end of the wash) to obtain the complete cycle. Attention  Only dry laundry or garments washed in an aqueous solution and suitable for tumble drying.  Do not dry fabrics which have been dry cleaned or had stains removed with chemical solvents, wool or wool blend fabrics which will be shrunk by the heat, very delicate fabrics such as silk and synthetic curtains, fabrics which may easily lose threads such as woollen yarn, padding and loose-pile mats, or articles which contain foam rubber or similar elastomers.  Loads of laundry placed in the washer-dryer for drying must not exceed 4 Kg in weight. The washer- dryer is constructed to give the best results with loads which do not exceed 4 kg of dry weight of laundry.  When washing programmes for resistant fabrics are set, drying automatically takes place at 90°C (normal drying).  In washing programmes for delicate fabrics, drying automatically takes place at 60°C (gentle drying). Therefore, in automatic wash-and-dry programmes, the drying programme will depend on the washing programme selected.  In drying only programmes, the laundry must first have been washed and spun-dried.  After drying particularly fluffy items such as new terry towels, the "Rinse" program should be carried out to ensure that any deposits left by the fabric are removed, and are not deposited on the clothes in the next wash. Important – Do not dry delicate fabrics that will not withstand a temperature of 60°C or any fabrics which will not withstand the selected temperature. 5.1.1 EXTRA DRYING If the laundry is still too damp at the end of the programme, set a short timed drying programme. Warning!: do not over-dry as this may cause creases or shrinkage of garments. Information for testing laboratories (EN 50229) Washing program: use the "Eco Cotton" by selecting the maximum washing time, spin speed and maximum temperature 60 ° C as shown in programs table Drying program (normal drying 90 ° C): The load should be divided as follows: Part 1: 4 kg (load composition: 1 sheet, 7 pillowcases and towels) - suggested time: 130 minutes Part 2: 3Kg (load composition: 1 sheet, 5 pillowcases and towels) - suggested time: 110 minutes

EN 22 5.2 WASH-AND-DRY PROGRAMME Automatic washing and drying can be carried out in the tough fabrics (cotton and colours) and synthetic/delicate fabrics programmes. If the wool wash programmes are selected, automatic drying after the wash cannot be set. For automatic washing and drying, the load of laundry must not exceed 4 kg of cotton or 2 kg of synthetic fabrics. Therefore, if the load for washing and drying exceeds the quantities stated above, a wash+dry programme is not recommended; the load will have to be halved after washing and dried in two lots. To set a wash-and-dry programme proceed as follows: 1. Select the washing programme and make any changes to the default parameters; 2. Press the dry button to set the drying time required. The display initially shows the maximum time which can be set (2h:40’), which is then gradually reduced to 0h:00’ Whether drying will be at the normal temperature (90°C) or the delicate fabrics temperature (60°C) depends on the washing programme set previously. Once a drying has been set, the symbol on the display flashes; it remains constantly on once the cycle enters the drying stage. 5.3 DRY ONLY PROGRAMME 1. Turn the appliance off by turning the washing/drying programmes selector knob to OFF. 2. Turn the knob to the drying programme required: Intensive drying: for normal drying (90°C), or Gentle drying: for delicate fabrics (60°C). To find out which symbol identifies each drying programme, refer to the programmes table supplied with the appliance. 3. Press the Dry button repeatedly to set the drying mode required (see previous point). 4. Press the "Start-Pause” button to start the drying programme. The display shows the time remaining and the drying symbol LED lights up. Attention  Since no washing programme has been set previously, there are no constraints on selection of the drying programme (normal or gentle). Remember that normal drying is recommended for cotton and coloureds, and gentle drying for synthetic and delicate items.  For good drying results, the load of laundry must not exceed 4kg of cotton or 2kg of synthetic fabrics. 5.4 INTERRUPTING OR CHANGING THE DRYING PROGRAMME 1. The drying programme can be interrupted by the same procedures as the washing programme. 2. To end the programme and remove the laundry, it is best first to cool the load. Use the selector button to set a drying time of 20 minutes. Restart the appliance as described above and the laundry will be ready for removal. Drying symbol Drying button

CLEANING AND MAINTENANCE Important – Before carrying out any cleaning or maintenance procedure, the plug must be disconnected from the power supply socket. 6.1 CLEANING THE OUTSIDE OF THE APPLIANCE  Regular, thorough cleaning will keep your appliance looking good.  Clean the exterior of the appliance with soap and water only, then dry thoroughly with a soft cloth.  The plastic parts should just be wiped with a damp cloth.  Do not scrape with pointed objects, or use solvents or products containing abrasive substances because they damage the surfaces.  For reasons of safety, never spray the washer-dryer with jets of water. 6.2 CLEANING THE DRUM  Remove any rust marks from the drum using a stainless steel cleaner, or very fine sandpaper for particu- larly stubborn cases.  For descaling the washer-dryer use only brand-name descalers which contain an anti-corrosion agent for washing machines.  Always follow the producer's instructions with regard to use and dosages.  After descaling or removing rust from the drum, carry out a few rinse cycles to remove all acid residues which might damage the appliance. Never use cleaners which contain solvents. There is the risk of the formation of vapours which might catch fire and explode. 6.3 CLEANING THE DOOR GASKET Check regularly that there are no brooches, buttons, nails or pins in the folds of the door gasket. 6.4 CLEANING THE DRAIN PUMP The drain pump only needs cleaning if it has been blocked by buttons, brooches or similar objects and the water is not being pumped out. In this case, proceed as described below. 1. Remove the mains plug to disconnect the appliance from the electricity supply. 2. Depending on the model, proceed as follows: Built-in/totally concealed model – use a small screw- driver as a lever to remove the plugs shown here, turn the plinth downwards and access the pump. Free-Standing Model – Insert a small screwdriver through the slits in the front of the plinth, then apply upward leverage with the screwdriver to release the top of the plinth from the cabinet. Tilt the plinth forward slightly and pull it upward to re- move it completely.

Push it towards the cabinet and put the plugs back into place. Free-standing model – Fit the bottom of the plinth first and then push it towards the cabinet until it snaps into place. 6.5 CLEANING THE DETERGENT DRAWER The detergent drawer should be kept clean, removing all solid deposits. To simplify this operation, completely remove the detergent drawer (pull the drawer fully out, press in the zone marked PUSH and then remove completely). Remove the siphon "A" and clean all parts with hot water. Fully re-insert the siphon and remove any detergent deposits before putting the drawer back in position. . 6.6 CLEANING THE WATER INTAKE FILTERS The machine is fitted with a filter which protects the water intake valves. The filter is in the fitting on the intake hose which is connected to the tap The filter must be cleaned if the washer-dryer is not taking in water or the amount of water is insufficient. To clean, proceed as follows:  Remove the mains plug to disconnect the appliance from the electricity supply.  Turn off the water tap.  Unscrew the intake hose fitting from the tap.  Remove the intake hose fitting filter.  Clean the filter with water, with the aid of a small brush.  When screwing the intake hose fitting back into place, check that the filter is positioned correctly.
