Use the washing machine

 Starting a wash cycle

  1. Switch the washing machine on by pressing the ON/OFF button. All the indicator lights will turn on for a few seconds, then only the indicator lights relative to the selected programme settings will remain lit and the START/PAUSE indicator light will flash.
  2. Load the laundry and close the door.
  3. Set the WASH CYCLE knob to the desired programme.
  4. Set the washing temperature.
  5. Set the drying cycle if necessary.
  6. Measure out the detergent and washing additives (see “Detergents and laundry”).
  7. Select the desired functions.
  8. Start the wash cycle by pressing the START/PAUSE button and the corresponding indicator light will remain lit in a fixed manner, in green. To cancel the set wash cycle, pause the machine by pressing the START/PAUSE button and select a new cycle.
  9. At the end of the wash cycle the indicator light will switch on. The DOOR LOCKED indicator light will switch off, indicating that the door may be opened (wait approximately 3 minutes). Take out your laundry and leave the appliance door ajar to make sure the drum dries completely. Switch the washer-dryer off by pressing the ON/OFF button.

*Ready to Wear

This cycle was designed to wash and dry lightly soiled small loads quickly. By selecting this cycle it is possible to wash and dry a maximum load of 1 kg in just 60 minutes.

Good washing results also depend on the correct dose of detergent: adding too much detergent will not neces-sarily result in a more efficient wash, and may in fact a build up on the inside of your appliance and contribute to environmental pollution. Do not use hand washing detergents because these create too much foam.

Open the detergent di-spenser drawer and pour in the detergent or wa-shing additive, as follows.

Detergent draw

compartment 1: Detergent for the wash cycle (powder or liquid)
For best results liquid detergent should be poured in the dispenser immediately before the start of the programme.

compartment 2: Additives (fabric softeners, etc.) The fabric softener should not overflow the grid.
