Helpful hints and tips
Sorting out the laundry
Follow the wash code symbols on each garment label and
the manufacturer’s washing instructions. Sort the laundry
asfollows:whites,coloureds,synthetics,delicates,wool-
lens.
Before loading the laundry
Never wash whites and coloureds together. Whites may
lose their «whiteness» in the wash.
New coloured items may run in the firstwash;they should
therefore be washed separately the first time.
Button up pillowcases, close zip fasteners, hooks and
poppers. Tie any belts or long tapes.
Remove persistent stains before washing.
Rub particularly soiled areas with a special detergent or
detergent paste.
Treatcurtainswithspecialcare.Removehooksortiethem
up in a bag or net.
Removing stains
Stubborn stains may not be removed by just water and
detergent. It is therefore advisable to treat them prior to
washing.
Blood: treat fresh stains with cold water. For dried stains,
soak overnight in water with a special detergent then rub
in the soap and water.
Oil based paint: moisten with benzine stain remover, lay
the garment on a soft cloth and dab the stain; treat several
times.
Dried grease stains: moisten with turpentine, lay the gar-
ment on a soft surface and dab the stainwiththe fingertips
and a cotton cloth.
Rust: oxalic acid dissolved in hotwater ora rust removing
product used cold. Be careful with rust stains which are
not recent since the cellulose structure will already have
been damaged and the fabric tends to hole.
Mould stains:treat with bleach, rinse well (whites andfast
coloureds only).
Grass: soap lightly and treat with bleach (whites and fast
coloureds only).
Ball point pen and glue: moisten with acetone1), lay the
garment on a soft cloth and dab the stain.
Lipstick: moisten with acetone as above, then treat stains
with methylated spirits. Treat any residual marks with
bleach.
Red wine: soak in water and detergent, rinse and treat with
acetic or citric acid, then rinse. Treat any residual marks
with bleach.
Ink: depending on the type of ink, moisten the fabric first
with acetone1), then with acetic acid; treat any residual
marks on white fabrics with bleach and then rinse thor-
oughly.
Tarstains:firsttreatwithstainremover,methylatedspirits
or benzine, then rub with detergent paste.
Detergents and additives
Good washing results also depend on the choice of de-
tergent and use of the correct quantities to avoid waste
and protect the environment.
Although biodegradable, detergents contain substances
which, in large quantities, can upset the delicate balance
of nature.
The choice of detergent will depend on the type of fabric
(delicates, woollens, cottons, etc.), the colour, washing
temperature and degree of soiling.
All commonly available washing machine detergentsmay
be used in this appliance:
• powder detergents for all types of fabric
• powder detergents for delicate fabrics (60°C max) and
woollens
• liquid detergents, preferably for low temperature wash
programmes (60°C max) for all types of fabric, or spe-
cial for woollens only.
1) do not use acetone on artificial silk
8
Page: 8
The detergent and any additives must be placed in the
appropriate compartments of the dispenser drawer before
starting the wash programme.
If using liquid detergents, a programme without prewash
must be selected.
Yourappliance incorporates a recirculation system which
allows an optimal use of the concentrated detergent.
Follow the product manufacturer’s recommendations on
quantities to use and do not exceed the «MAX» mark in
the detergent dispenser drawer .
Quantity of detergent to be used
The type and quantity of detergent will depend on the type
of fabric, load size, degree of soiling and hardness of the
water used.
Follow the product manufacturers’ instructions on quan-
tities to use.
Use less detergent if:
• you are washing a small load
• the laundry is lightly soiled
• large amounts of foam form during washing.
Degrees of water hardness
Water hardness is classified in so-called “degrees” of
hardness. Information on hardness of the water in your
area can be obtained from the relevant water supply com-
pany, or from your local authority. If the water hardness
degree is medium or high we suggest you to add a water
softenerfollowingalwaysthemanufacturer’sinstructions.
When the degree of hardness is soft, readjust the quantity
of the detergent.

Care and cleaning
Warning! You must DISCONNECT the appliance
from the electricity supply, before you can carry out
any cleaning or maintenance work.
Descaling
The water we use normally contains lime. It is a good idea
to periodically use a water softening powder in the ma-
chine. Do this separately from any laundry washing, and
according to the softening powder manufacturer's in-
structions. This will help to prevent the formation of lime
deposits.
External cleaning
Clean the exterior cabinet of the appliance with soap and
water only, and then dry thoroughly.
Cleaning the dispenser drawer
The washing powder and additive dispenser drawer
should be cleaned regularly.
Remove the drawer by
pressing the catch down-
wards and by pulling it
out. Flush it out under a
tap, to remove any traces
of accumulated powder.
To aid cleaning, the top
part of the additive com-
partment should be re-
moved.

Cleaning the drawer recess
Having removedthedraw-
er, use a small brush to
clean the recess, ensuring
that all washing powder
residue is removed from
theupperandlowerpartof
the recess.
Replace the drawer and run the rinse programme with-
out any clothes in the drum.
Cleaning the pump
The pump should be inspected if:
• the machine does not empty and/or spin;
• the machine makes an unusual noise during draining
due to objects such as safety pins, coins etc. blocking
the pump.
Proceed as follows:
• disconnect the appliance;
• if necessary wait until the water has cooled down.
Open the pump door.
Place a container close to
the pump to collect any
spillage.
Pull out the emergency
emptying hose, place it in
the container and remove
its cap.
When no more water comes out, unscrew the pump
cover and remove it. Always keep a rag nearby to dry
up spillage of water when removing the cover.

When the bowl is full, put the cap back on the hose.
Empty the bowl. Repeattheprocedure until waterstops
flowing out;
• clean the pump if necessary as previously described;
• replace the emergency emptying hose in its seat after
having plugged it;
• screw the pump cover again and close the door.
Important! Every time you drain the water through the
emergency emptying hose you must pour 2 litres of water
into the main wash compartment of the detergent drawer
and then run the drain programme. This will activate the
ECO Valve device avoiding that part of the detergent
remains unused at next washing.
What to do if…

17
Page: 17
Problem Possible cause/Solution
Spinning starts late or the machine
does not spin:
The electronic unbalance detection device has cut in because the laundry is
not evenly distributed in the drum. The laundry is redistributed by reverse
rotation of the drum. This may happen several times before the unbalance
disappears and normal spinning can resume. If, after 10 minutes, the laundry
is still not evenly distributed in the drum, the machine will not spin. In this
case, redistribute the load manually and select the spin programme.
• Redistribute the laundry.
The load is too small.
• Addmoreitems,redistributetheloadmanuallyandthenselectthespinning
programme.
The machine makes an unusual
noise:
The machine is fitted with a type of motor which makes an unusual noise
compared with other traditional motors. This new motor ensures a softer start
and more even distribution of the laundry in the drum when spinning, as well
as increased stability of the machine.
No water is visible in the drum:
Machines based on modern technology operate very economically using very
little water without affecting performance.

Positioning
Install the machine on a flat hard floor. Make sure that air
circulationaroundthemachineisnotimpededbycarpets,
rugs etc. Check that the machine does not touch the wall
or other kitchen units. Level the washing machine by
raising or lowering the feet. The feet may be tight to adjust
as they incorporate a self locking nut, but the machine
MUST be level and stable.
Any necessary adjustment can be made with a spanner.
Accurate levelling prevents vibration, noise anddisplace-
ment of the machine during operation. Never place card-
board, wood or similar materials under the machine to
compensate for any unevenness in the floor.
If necessary, check the
setting with a spirit level.

Do not place the inlet hose downwards. Angle the hose
to the left or right depending on the position of your
water tap. Set the hose correctly by loosening the ring
nut. After positioning the inlet hose, be sure to tighten
the ring nut again to prevent leaks.
Caution! The inlet hose must not be lengthened. If
it is too short and you do not wish to move the tap,
you will have to purchase a new, longer hose specially
designed for this type of use.
Warning! Installation should comply with local
water authority and building regulations’
requirements.
The appliance must be connected to a cold water supply.
A minimum water pressure of 0.05 MPa (0.5 bar) is
required for safe operation of the appliance.
If you cannot make the cold water connection direct from
the rising mains, you may beable tooperatetheappliance
from your cold water storage system.
There should be a minimum vertical distance of 5.02 m
(16.5 ft) between the appliance’s inlet and the bottom of
the water storage tank.
Water drainage
This appliance is designed to be permanently plumbed
into your home's drainage system using one of the fol-
lowing methods.
1. Into a drainage standpipe.
Firstly form a hook in the end of the drain hose using
the “U” piece” supplied.
20
Page: 20
“U” piece supplied
Place the drain hose into your standpipe, which should
have an internal diameter of approximately 38 mm thus
ensuring there is an air break between the drain hose
and standpipe.
When discharging into a standpipe ensure that the top
of the standpipe is no more than 90 cm (35.4'') and no
less than 60 cm (23.6'') above floor level.
38 mm (1.5”)
standpipe
diamater
30 cm (12”)
The drain hose may be extended to a maximum of 4
metres. An additional drain hose and joining piece is
available from your local Service Force Centre. The
joining piece must have an internal diameter of 18 mm.
Min. 60 cm (23.6”) Max. 90 cm (35.4”)
If your drain hose looks
like this (see beside) you
do not require the “U”
piece”. Just push the hose
firmly in to the standpipe.
2. Onto a sink outlet spigot.
Loop
If the outlet spigot has not
been used before, remove
any blanking plug that
may be in place.
Push the drain hose onto
the spigot and secure with
a clip, ensure a loop is
formed in the drain hose
(see above) to prevent
waste from the sink enter-
ing the appliance.
If you intend to drain the hose from the machine into a
sink, make sure that the sink is empty and the plug hole
is not blocked. Use the plastic “U - Piece” supplied.
Special conditions
If the floor is carpeted or covered with crumbly or soft
material, insert a rigid support base under the feet to pre-
vent noise, vibration or displacement. The base should
protrude a few centimetres beyond the edges of the ap-
pliance.
Warning! The appliance should NOT be placed on
deep pile carpeting.
Note!
Please ensure that when the appliance is installed it is
easily accessible for the engineer in the event of a
breakdown.
In the interest of the environment
The appliance should be connected to the FOUL drainage
system, the water will then be taken to a sewage works for
treatment before being discharged safely into a river.
It is essential that these appliances are not connected to
the surface water drainage system as this water is dis-
charged directly into a river or stream and may cause
pollution.
If you require any further advice please contact your local
water authority.
