  • Mount the furniture door to the front of the washer using the hinges. Fix the spacers (I) in place with the 2 screws (J) and then fix the hinges with 2 screw (H).

  • We suggest mounting the furniture door so that it opens towards the left, which is the same direction as the porthole door. This will leave more space when you are loading washing into the appliance.

  •  Slide the washer into an opening of the size indicated in the diagram opposite. A furniture plinth may be run across the front of the appliance, but its height will be dictated by the height the washer is set at.

  •  The 4 adjustable feet allow the height of the washer to be adjusted from 820 mm to a maximum of 840 mm. To adjust the height, you should remove the nuts fitted to each foot and replace these with the 5 mm nuts supplied. Raise the feet to your desired height and then fully tighten the lock nut to the base of the washer.

  •  Connect the water hose to the water supply tap (fig. 3) only using the hose supplied with the appliance (do not reuse old hose sets).

  •  SOME MODELS may include one or more of the following features:

  • HOT &COLD (fig. 4):
    water mains connection settings with hot and cold water for higher energy savings. Connect the grey tube to the cold water tap and the red one to the hot water tap. The machine can be connected to the cold water tap only: in this case, some programs may start a few minutes later.

  • AQUASTOP (fig. 5):
    a device located on the supply tube that stops water flow if the tube deteriorates; in this case, a red mark will appear in the window “A” and the tube must be replaced. To unscrew the nut, press the one-way lock device “B”.

    Should water leak from the primary internal tube “A”, the transparent containment sheath “B” will contain water to permit the washing cycle to complete. At the end of the cycle, contact the Customer Service Centre to replace the supply tube.


  •  The washing machine should be installed in its final position such that the water fill hose is not kinked or trapped. The corrugated drain hose should be inserted into suitable drain pipe of between 50 cm and 85 cm height above the floor using the curved drain hose support. If an under sink connection is used the drain hose must be routed above the sink overfill opening to prevent back siphoning. Care must be taken to avoid kinking or trapping the rain ose (fig. 7).
  •  Level the appliance using the feet as illustrated in figure 8:
  •  turn the nut clockwise to release the screw;  rotate the foot to raise or lower it until it touches to the floor;

  •  compartment “1”: for prewash detergent;
  •  compartment “ ”: for special additives, softeners, starch fragrances, etc.;
  • WARNING: only use liquid products; the washing machine is set to automatically dose additives at each cycle during the last rinse.
  • compartment “2”: for washing detergent.
  • WARNING: some detergents are not designed for use in the dispenser drawer but are supplied with their own dispenser that is placed in the drum directly.


Load tips
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.
  •  When washing rugs, bedcovers or other heavy clothing, we recommend you avoid the spinning cycle.
  •  To wash wool, make sure the item can be machine washed. Check the fabric label.
  •  Leave the appliance’s door slightly open between washes, to prevent possible bad smells developing inside the machine.

Useful advice for saving
Tips on how to save money and not damage the environment when using your appliance.

  •  Load the machine to the highest capacity shown in the programme table for each programme – this will allow you to SAVE energy and water.
  •  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.
  •  The most efficient programmes in terms of combined use of water and energy are usually the longer-lasting ones with lower temperature.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • SAVE energy and time by selecting a high spin speed to reduce the water content in laundry before using a drying programme.
  •  Only use detergents suitable for machine washing.
  •  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.
  •  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.
  • 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.
  • 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.


Looking after your appliance correctly can extend its lifespan.
Cleaning the appliance’s exterior

  •  Disconnect the machine from the power supply.

Description of programmes
To clean different types of fabrics and various levels of dirt, the washing machine has specific programs to meet every need of washing (see table of programmes). Choose programme in accordance with the laundry instructions appearing on labels, especially the maximum recommended temperature.

The washing cycle is optimized to reduce the creation of creases, keeping an excellent washing performance. It is also possible to further reduce the spin speed, to ensure an easier ironing.

This programme is suitable for washing coloured cotton garments at 40°C or for ensuring the highest degree of cleanliness for cotton resistant laundry washing at 60°C or 90°C. The final spin is at maximum speed that ensures excellent water removal.

Cottons + Prewash
This programme has been designed to remove the stronger stains from cotton white clothes. The prewash guarantees the tough dirt removal. Add into compartment “1” a quantity of detergent equal to 20% of that used for main wash.

ECO 40-60
The ECO 40-60 programme is able to clean normally soiled cotton laundry declared to be washable at 40°C or 60°C, together in the same cycle. This programme is used to assess the compliance with the EU Ecodesign legislation (environmentally friendly products design). 20°C This innovative programme, allows you to wash different fabrics and colours together, such as cottons, synthetics and mixed fabrics at only 20°C and provides an excellent cleaning performance. Consumption on this program is about 40% of a conventional 40°C cottons wash.

This programme allows you to wash different type’s fabrics and different colours all together. The rotation movement of the drum and the water levels are optimized, both during the washing the rinsing phase. The accurate spin action, ensures a reduced formation of creases in the fabrics.

This program performs 3 rinses with an intermediate spin (which can be reduced or excluded by using the appropriate button). It is used for rinsing any type of fabric, for example after a wash carried out by hand.

Drain + Spin
The program completes the drain and a maximum spin. It is possible to delete or reduce the spin through the SPIN SELECTION button.

This programme has been designed to have the highest quality cleaning of fabrics such as denim: ideal for removing dirt without affecting the elasticity of the fibers.

Program for durable fabrics it allows you to sanitize the laundry. We recommend the use of powder detergents to increase the effectiveness of sanitizing.

Wool/Hand Wash
This programme performs a wash cycle dedicated to the wool fabrics that can be washed in a washing machine, the articles to be washed by hand or laundry items made from silk or specified as “Wash as Silk” on the fabric label.

This programme has reduced periods of drum rotation during the cycle and is particularly suitable or washing delicate fabrics. The wash cycle and rinses are carried out with a high level of water to ensure the best performance.

Mixed & Coloured 59′
This programme offers you the freedom to wash all kinds of fabrics and non- fading colours together, with a full load, obtaining  excellent results in only 59 minutes. With washing at medium temperature, this programme is recommended for laundry that is not particularly dirty.

Rapid (14’/30’/44′)
Saving without compromising! This new programme may be used to obtain excellent results while saving water, energy, detergent and time. This option washes at a medium temperature suitable for any kind of fabric. Recommended for small loads and lightly soiled items. This programme guarantees excellent results for cotton laundry. This option was designed to cut washing time at medium temperatures for medium-soiled cotton laundry. Fill the machine only halfway for best results.
