Installation
EN
! This instruction manual should be kept in a safe place for future reference. If the washing machine is sold, given away or moved, please ensure the manual is kept with the machine, so that the new owner may benefit from the advice contained within it. ! Read these instructions carefully: they contain vital information relating to the safe installation and operation of the appliance. ! Inside the pack containing this manual, you will also find the guarantee and all the details necessary for installation. ! If it is placed on carpet or a rug, adjust the feet in such a way as to allow a sufficient ventilation space underneath the washing machine.

Connecting the electricity and water supplies
Connecting the water inlet hose
! Before connecting the inlet hose to the water supply, run the water until it is perfectly clear. 1. Connect the inlet hose to the machine by screwing it onto the cold water inlet of the appliance, which is situated on the top righthand side of the rear part of the appliance (see figure).

Unpacking and levelling
Unpacking
1. Once you have removed all the packaging from the washing machine, make sure it has not been damaged during transportation. If it has been damaged, contact the retailer and do not proceed any further with the installation process. 2. Remove the 4 protective screws (used during transportation) and the corresponding spacer, located on the rear part of the appliance (see figure).

2. Connect the inlet hose by screwing it to a cold water tab using a 3/4 gas threaded connection (see figure).

3. Close off the holes using the plastic plugs supplied in the pack. 4. Keep all the parts in a safe place; they will be needed again if the washing machine is moved to another location, to prevent the inside of the appliance being damaged. ! Packaging materials should not be used as toys for children.

3. Make sure that the hose is not folded over or bent. ! The water pressure at the tap must fall within the values indicated in the Technical data table (see next page). ! If the inlet hose is not long enough, contact a specialised shop or an authorised technician. ! Never use second-hand or old inlet hoses; use the products supplied with the machine.

Levelling
1. Place the washing machine on a flat sturdy floor, without resting it up against walls or cabinets. 2. If the floor is uneven, the front feet of the machine may be adjusted until it reaches a horizontal position (the angle of inclination must not exceed 2 degrees).

! If the appliance is levelled correctly, it will be more stable and much less likely to cause vibrations and noise while it is operating, particularly during the spin cycle.

Auto Dose System
EN
Introduction This washing machine is equipped with two tanks: one for liquid detergent (either concentrated or diluted) with a capacity of approx. 5.5 l and another for liquid fabric softener (either concentrated or diluted) with a capacity of approx. 3.5 l (see picture) . ! Check the detergent/fabric softener box to verify whether it is diluted or concentrated detergent. The automatic dosing system intakes the correct amount of detergent and fabric softener from the tanks for each type of load and at the right time, guaranteeing optimal washing results without wastage. The amount of detergent/fabric softener can be modified manually by pressing the DETERGENT and FABRIC SOFTENER buttons (refer to "Modifying pre-set parameters"). If you prefer, the washing machine can also be used in the "traditional" mode, i.e. by adding the detergent in the dispenser; the machine will automatically detect the detergent and will not use the tanks. Detergent dispenser "Traditional" mode. Pull out the detergent dispenser drawer up to the first stop point to add the detergent (either liquid or powder detergent), bleach or other additives (e.g. whiteners) and the pre-wash detergent for washing in the "traditional" mode (refer to "Traditional" mode). "Auto Dose System" mode. In order to fill the detergent and fabric softener tanks, the detergent dispenser drawer must be fully extracted : open the dispenser drawer up to the first stop point then press the lever (A) and open up to the second stop point, making sure that it is fully extracted. Avoid moving the dispenser drawer during filling operations. Once the tanks have been filled (refer to "Filling the tanks"), the machine can run up to 40 cycles before the detergent finishes (*). The filling time depends on the density of the product. Very dense products will take longer to fill. Close the detergent dispenser drawer only once the compartments are completely empty. Select the density of the detergent added (either concentrated or liquid) by pressing the appropriate button . Concentrated Diluted The machine will store the selection. If no option is selected, the detergent intake option will be pre-set to "diluted". Use button to set the amount of fabric softener that will be automatically extracted by the machine: 1) If concentrated softener is used, we recommend selecting the first level ( with one bar) and, if necessary, stepping up by a single position ( with 2 bars) to increase detergent intake. 2) If diluted softener is used, we recommend setting level 3 ( with 3 bars) and to then either increase/decrease the amount of fabric softener to be extracted. 3) To exclude the use of fabric softener, press until the bars disappear (also refer to "Modifying pre-set parameters").

If the tanks are not filled, the successive wash cycles in Auto Dose System will be carried out without any intake of detergent. ! We suggest adding detergent and fabric softener ONLY after the machine's signal. ! NEVER mix two different detergents; always clean out the tank before adding a new type of detergent (refer to "Cleaning cycle set by the user"). Using the "Auto Dose System" If the compartments have been filled with detergent and fabric softener, you may start using the machine (refer to "Running a wash cycle"). Powder detergents for pre-washing and powder additives may only be used in the traditional mode or using the "Auto Dose System", by placing the additives directly inside the drum, preferably in conjunction with the "laundry ball". Whenever bleaching is required, pour the bleach in the relative compartment (refer to the option "Super Wash"). Modifying pre-set parameters: The machine automatically intakes detergent on the basis of the selected programme, wash load and water hardness. However, the amount of detergent/fabric softener used may be modified. button: press to increase, decrease and to exclude detergent intake.

Automatic cleaning: The washing machine carries out an automatic cleaning cycle during the rinse cycle if the level of detergent that remains is insufficient for carrying out a successive wash cycle. Cleaning cycle set by the user: Run the cleaning cycle (with empty drum) if you require adding a different product to the previous one or if the tanks have been incorrectly filled (e.g. fabric softener has been erroneously poured into the detergent tank or vice-versa). Press button and hold for 5 sec. to activate cleaning of the detergent tank, button for cleaning the fabric softener tank or button for cleaning both tanks. Keep pressing for a further 3 sec.

Detergents and laundry
EN

Detergent

The type and quantity of detergent required depend on the type of fabric you are washing (cotton, wool, silk, etc.), as well as its colour, the washing temperature, the level of soiling and the hardness of the water in the area. Whenever the detergent and fabric softener "Auto Dose System " is activated, this washing machine helps to prevent wastage and to protect the environment, besides guaranteeing optimal washing performance. We recommend the following: · Use powder detergent for carrying out a pre-wash and pour in the "traditional" mode. · Use liquid detergents for delicate cotton garments and for all low-temperature wash cycles. · When activating the "Auto Dose System" mode, use liquid detergent and fabric softeners only. Never add ultraconcentrated detergents (e.g. "Gel" type detergents or similar). · Use gentle liquid detergents for wool and silk garments and pour in the "traditional" mode. ! Never mix two different detergents; always clean out the tank before adding a new type of detergent. The detergent should be poured into the relevant compartment - or the dispenser placed directly inside the drum - before the wash cycle begins. In the latter case, it will not be possible to select the Cottons with pre-wash cycle. ! Use powder detergent for white cotton garments, for pre-washing, and for washing at temperatures over 60°C ! Follow the instructions given on the detergent packaging. ! Do not use hand washing detergents because these create too much foam.

Shirts: use the special wash cycle to wash shirts in different fabrics and colours to guarantee they receive the best possible care. Duvets: to wash double or single duvets (the weight of which should not exceed 3,5 kg), cushions or clothes padded with goose down such as puffa jackets, use the special wash cycle. We recommend that duvets are placed in the drum with their edges folded inwards (see figure) and that no more than ¾ of the total volume of the drum is used. To achieve the best results, we recommend that a liquid detergent is used and placed inside the detergent dispenser drawer.

Preparing the laundry

· Shake out the garments before loading them into the machine. · Divide the laundry according fabric type (symbol on the washing instruction label) and colour, making sure you separate the coloured garments from the white ones; · Empty all pockets and check the buttons; · Do not exceed the values listed in the "Table of wash cycles", which refer to the weight of the laundry when dry.

Precautions and tips
! The machine was designed and constructed in accordance with international safety regulations. The following information is provided for safety reasons and must therefore be read carefully. should be collected separately in order to optimise the cost of re-using and recycling the materials inside the machine, while preventing potential damage to the atmosphere and to public health. The crossed-out dustbin is marked on all products to remind the owner of their obligations regarding separated waste collection. For more information relating to the correct disposal of household appliances, owners should contact their local authorities or appliance dealer.

General safety
· This appliance is not intended for use by persons (including children) with reduced physical, sensory or mental capabilities, or lack of experience and knowledge, unless they have been given supervision or instruction concerning use of the appliance by a person responsible for their safety. Children should be supervised to ensure that they do not play with the appliance. · This appliance was designed for domestic use only. · Do not touch the machine when barefoot or with wet or damp hands or feet. · Do not pull on the power supply cable when unplugging the appliance from the electricity socket. Hold the plug and pull. · Do not touch the drained water as it may reach extremely high temperatures. · Never force the porthole door. This could damage the safety lock mechanism designed to prevent accidental opening. · If the appliance breaks down, do not under any circumstances access the internal mechanisms in an attempt to repair it yourself. · Always keep children well away from the appliance while it is operating. · If it must be moved, 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. · Before loading laundry into the washing machine, make sure the drum is empty.

Opening the porthole door manually
In the event that it is not possible to open the porthole door due to a powercut, and if you wish to remove the laundry, proceed as follows: 1. remove the plug from the electrical socket. 2. make sure the water level inside the machine is lower than the door opening; if it is not, remove excess water using the drain hose, collecting it in a bucket as indicated in the figure.

3. remove the cover panel on the lower front part of the washing machine (see overleaf). 4. pull outwards using the tab as indicated in the figure, until the plastic tie-rod is freed from its stop position; pull downwards until you hear a "click", which indicates that the door is now unlocked.

Load balancing system

Before every spin cycle, to avoid excessive vibrations before every spin and to distribute the load in a uniform manner, the drum rotates continuously at a speed which is slightly greater than the washing rotation speed. If, after several attempts, the load is not balanced correctly, the machine spins at a reduced spin speed. If the load is excessively unbalanced, the washing machine performs the distribution process instead of spinning. To encourage improved load distribution and balance, we recommend small and large garments are mixed in the load.

5. open the door; if this is still not possible repeat the procedure.

Disposal
· Disposing of the packaging materials: observe local regulations so that the packaging may be re-used. · The European Directive 2002/96/EC relating to Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) states that household appliances should not be disposed of using the normal solid urban waste cycle. Exhausted appliances

6. reposition the panel, making sure the hooks are securely in place before you push it onto the appliance.

Care and maintenance
EN

Cutting off the water and electricity supplies
· Turn off the water tap after every wash cycle. This will limit wear on the hydraulic system in the machine and help to prevent leaks. · Unplug the appliance when cleaning it and during all maintenance work.

To access the pre-chamber:

1

1. take off the cover panel on the front of the machine by first pressing it in the centre and then pushing downwards on both sides until you can remove it (see figures); 2. position a container so that it will collect the water which flows out (approximately 1.5 l) (see figure); 3. unscrew the lid by rotating it in an anti-clockwise direction (see figure);

Cleaning the machine
The outer parts and rubber components of the appliance can be cleaned using a soft cloth soaked in lukewarm soapy water. Do not use solvents or abrasives.

Cleaning the detergent dispenser drawer
A

D

To pull out the dispenser drawer, open until the first stop point then press lever A to open completely; finally, press one of the levers D and pull the drawer outwards (see picture). Wash it under running water; this procedure should be effected regularly. Be careful to remove any detergent residues from the dispenser drawer socket on the machine. Keep the drawer to the left hand side when replacing it to ensure that it centres the guides and to prevent it from jamming.

4. clean the inside thoroughly; 5. screw the lid back on; 6. reposition the panel, making sure the hooks are securely in place before you push it onto the appliance.

Checking the water inlet hose
Check the inlet hose at least once a year. If there are any cracks, it should be replaced immediately: during the wash cycles, water pressure is very strong and a cracked hose could easily split open.

Caring for your appliance drum
· Always leave the door ajar to prevent unpleasant odours from forming.

Cleaning the pump
The washing machine is fitted with a self-cleaning pump which does not require any maintenance. Sometimes, small items (such as coins or buttons) may fall into the protective pre-chamber at the base of the pump. ! Make sure the wash cycle has finished and unplug the appliance.

· The appliance is not plugged into the socket fully, or not enough to make contact. · There is no power in the house. · · · · The door is not closed properly. The START/PAUSE button has not been pressed. The water tap has not been opened. A delayed start has been set.

The washing machine does not fill · The water inlet hose is not connected to the tap. · The hose is bent. with water.
· · · ·

The water tap has not been opened. There is no water supply in the house. The pressure is too low. The START/PAUSE button has not been pressed.

The washing machine door remains locked. The machine continuously fills with water and drains.

· If you have selected the function, at the end of the cycle the washing machine drum will rotate slowly; to end the cycle press the START/PAUSE button or the button. · The drain hose is not fitted at a height between 65 and 100 cm from the floor (see "Installation"). · The free end of the hose is under water (see "Installation"). · If the dwelling is on one of the upper floors of a building, there may be problems relating to water drainage, causing the washing machine to fill with water and drain continuously. Special anti-draining valves are available in shops and help to prevent this inconvenience. · The wall drainage system is not fitted with a breather pipe. · The wash cycle does not include draining: Some wash cycles require the drain phase to be started manually (see "Wash cycles and options"). · The "Easy iron" option is enabled: to complete the wash cycle, press the START/PAUSE button ("Wash cycles and options"). · The drain hose is bent (see Installation). · The drainage duct is clogged.

The washing machine does not drain or spin.

The machine vibrates a lot during · The drum was not unlocked correctly during installation (see "Installation"). · The machine is not level (see "Installation" ). the spin cycle.
· The machine is trapped between cabinets and walls (see "Installation"). · The load is unbalanced (see "Detergents and laundry").

The washing machine leaks.

· The water inlet hose is not screwed on properly (see "Installation"). · The detergent dispenser is blocked (to clean it, see "Care and maintenance"). · The drain hose is not fixed in place properly (see "Installation"). · Switch off the machine and unplug it, wait for approximately 1 minute and then switch it back on again.

========13========

EN

Troubleshooting:
The machine's washing performance is unsatisfactory.

Possible causes / Solutions:
· The tanks have not been loaded correctly (e.g. fabric softener has been added instead of detergent or vice-versa) · Two different types of detergent/fabric softener have mixed.
! NEVER mix two different detergents; always clean out the tanks before adding a new type of detergent.

· The "Auto Dose System" is blocked due to prolonged lack of use: carry out a tank cleaning cycle (refer to "Cleaning cycle set by the user"). What happens if the tanks are loaded even if they are already full? · Buzzers (Beep) and visual signals (icons appearing on the display) indicate that the tank is full. If further detergent/fabric softener is added, the excess quantity will fall into the drum and will be washed away with the next cycle.

What happens if the dispenser is used · The machine will automatically track whether powder or liquid detergent in the traditional mode while the tanks has been loaded in the traditional mode and will not intake any amount of are still full? detergent from the tank. Fabric softener can only be used in the "Auto Dose System" mode. Can the tanks also be used for powder detergent? Can powder detergent fall into the tanks? What happens if the dispenser is not opened properly when filling the tanks? What happens if detergent and fabric softener are erroneously inverted? What happens if different detergents are mixed before the tanks are empty? · No, powder detergent can only be used in the traditional mode. · No, there is a barrier to prevent powder detergent from falling into one of the tanks even if the dispenser is open in the "Auto Dose System" position (i.e. completely open). · If the dispenser is not completely open, the detergent or fabric softener that has been added will fall into the drum and will be washed away with the next cycle. · The washing machine will wash with unsatisfactory results, the tanks will have to be emptied and subjected to a manual cleaning cycle. · The machine will wash normally although we recommend only refilling the tanks after the signal emitted by the machine; do not mix different detergents/fabric softeners.

! Note: to exit "Demo mode", switch machine off, press and hold the two "START/PAUSE"
simultaneously for 3 seconds.

Auto Dose System
FR
Introduction Ce lave-linge est doté de deux réservoirs : un pour la lessive liquide (concentrée ou diluée) d'une capacité de 5,5 l environ, et l'autre pour l'adoucissant liquide (concentré ou dilué) d'une capacité de 3,5 l environ (voir fugure). ! Vérifier sur le récipient contenant la lessive ou l'adoucissant s'il est dilué ou concentré. ! Le système de dosage automatique prélève dans les réservoirs la quantité idéale de lessive et d'adoucissant pour chaque volume et au moment le plus opportun, pour un lavage optimal sans gaspillage. Il est possible de modifier la quantité de lessive et d'adoucissant manuellement en intervenant sur les boutons LESSIVE et ADOUCISSANT (voir "Modifier les paramètres prédéfinis"). Si nécessaire, la machine peut être utilisée en mode "Traditionnel". Le produit lessiviel devra donc être versé dans le tiroir. La machine détectera automatiquement sa présence et n'utilisera pas le contenu des réservoirs. Tiroir à produits lessiviels Mode "Traditionnel". Tirer le tiroir jusqu'au premier palier pour verser le produit lessiviel (liquide ou en poudre), la Javel ou tout autre produit (par ex. : agents blanchissants) et le produit de prélavage en vue d'une utilisation traditionnelle (voir "Utilisation traditionnelle"). Mode "Auto Dose". Pour remplir les réservoirs de lessive et d'assouplissant il faut sortir complètement le tiroir à produits lessiviels : ouvrir le tiroir jusqu'au premier cran, ensuite appuyer sur le petit levier (A) et tirer jusqu'au deuxième cran en s'assurant qu'il arrive bien en butée. Ne pas déplacer le tiroir pendant le chargement. Après avoir rempli les réservoirs (voir "Remplir les réservoirs"), l'appareil disposera d'une autonomie de 40 cycles en ce qui concerne les produits lessiviels (*). Remplir les réservoirs Ouvrir le tiroir à produits lessiviels en mode "Auto Dose" (voir "Tiroir à produits lessiviels"). Verser lentement la lessive (B) et l'adoucissant (C) de sorte à remplir totalement les réservoirs (voir figures).

C B

Pour ne pas dépasser la quantité maximale, un signal acoustique (bip) d'intensité croissante signalera le niveau atteint jusqu'au remplissage complet du réservoir, lequel sera signalé par 3 bips plus longs. Commencer le lavage immédiatement après avoir rempli les réservoirs pour assurer le nettoyage du tiroir. À l'écran, les icônes (lessive) et (adoucissant) s'éclairent progressivement pour indiquer la quantité.

A

Le temps de remplissage dépend de la densité du produit. En présence de produits très denses, le temps de remplissage sera plus long. Fermer le tiroir à produits lessiviels lorsque les réservoirs sont vides. Sélectionner la densité du produit ajouté (concentré ou dilué) en appuyant sur le bouton correspondant. Concentrée Diluée La machine mémorisera la sélection. Si aucun paramétrage n'est effectué, l'option "Diluée" sera programmée. Utiliser le bouton pour régler la quantité d'adoucissant qui sera automatiquement prélevée dans la machine: 1) Si l'adoucissant est concentré, il est conseillé de sélectionner le premier niveau ( avec une barrette) et de monter éventuellement d'un niveau ( avec 2 barrettes) pour augmenter la dose. 2) Si l'adoucissant est dilué, il est conseillé de sélectionner le 3e niveau ( avec 3 barrettes) et d'augmenter/diminuer la quantité d'adoucissant à doser. 3) Pour ne pas utiliser d'adoucissant, appuyer sur le bouton pour faire disparaître les barrettes (voir aussi "Modifier les paramètres prédéfinis").

Première mise en service Allumer le lave-linge en appuyant sur la touche ON/OFF. Le premier lavage doit être effectué à vide, avec le produit lessiviel versé directement dans le tiroir prévu à cet effet (voir mode "Traditionnel") en activant le programme (Coton 90°), sans prélavage et sans remplir les réservoirs.

(*) pour une charge moyenne de 4 kg, un programme Coton 40°C, une dureté de
l'eau "moyenne" et un degré de salissure réglé sur 3.

========22========

Signalement des remplissages successifs: lorsqu'à la fin d'un cycle, le niveau résiduel de produit lessiviel/ adoucissant descend sous la quantité nécessaire au lavage suivant, les messages suivants s'afficheront à l'écran "À la fin du cycle, remettre de la lessive" ou "À la fin du cycle, remettre de l'adoucissant" ou "À la fin du cycle, remplir le réservoirs" (pour les deux). Si les réservoirs ne sont pas remplis, les lavages suivants en mode Auto Dose seront effectués sans prélèvement de produit lessiviel. ! Il est conseillé de verser la lessive et l'adoucissant UNIQUEMENT sur indication de la machine. ! Ne JAMAIS mélanger les produits de lessive, toujours nettoyer le réservoir avant de verser un nouveau produit (voir "Nettoyage paramétré par l'utilisateur"). Utilisation du système "Auto Dose System" Si les réservoirs ont été remplis de lessive et d'adoucissant, activer la machine (voir "Comment faire un cycle de lavage"). Le produit de prélavage en poudre et les additifs en poudre peuvent être exclusivement utilisés en mode Traditionnel ou en mode "Auto Dose System" moyennant l'ajout des additifs directement dans le tambour et de préférence avec l'aide d'une boule de lavage. En cas d'utilisation de Javel, verser le liquide dans le compartiment prévu à cet effet (voir option "Super Lavage"). Modifier les paramètres prédéfinis: La machine prélève automatiquement la quantité de lessive en fonction du programme choisi, la quantité de lessive et la dureté de l'eau. Il est toutefois possible de modifier la quantité de lessive/adoucissant. Bouton : appuyer pour augmenter, diminuer et annuler le dosage du produit lessiviel.

Nettoyage programmé par l'utilisateur: effectuer le cycle de nettoyage (à vide) pour utiliser un produit différent de celui utilisé au préalable ou si les réservoirs ont été mal remplis (si l'adoucissant a été versé dans le compartiment réservé à la lessive ou vice-versa). Appuyer 5 secondes de suite sur la touche pour le lancement du nettoyage du réservoir à lessive, sur la touche pour celui à assouplissant ou sur la touche pour les deux réservoirs. Continuer à appuyer pendant 3 autres secondes (un compte à rebours "4-3-2-1" s'affichera en haut à droite) jusqu'à ce que le popup s'affiche : "Nettoyage GO". Le cycle de nettoyage dure environ 40' si les réservoirs sont vides. Dans le cas contraire, le cycle durera plus longtemps. L'écran affichera les icônes indiquant que les réservoirs sont vides. Utilisation "traditionnelle" Extraire le tiroir à produits lessiviels jusqu'au premier palier (voir fugure), verser directement dans le tiroir la lessive et les additifs (Javel, par exemple) nécessaires au lavage. 1. bac à produit de prélavage : utiliser exclusivement de la lessive en poudre. 2. bac à produit de lavage : utiliser de la lessive en poudre ou liquide. Dans ce dernier cas, il est recommandé de le verser juste avant de démarrer le lave-linge et sans prélavage. 3. bac à Javel : à utiliser en cas d'utilisation de Jav
