    Interrupting a programme

    Depress the Start/Pause button to

    interrupt a programme which is running,

    the corresponding light starts to flash.

    Depress the button again to restart the

    programme.

    Cancelling a programme

    Turn the selector dial to O to cancel a

    programme which is running. Now you

    can select a new programme.

    Opening the door after the

    programme has started

    First set the machine to pause by pressing

    the Start/Pause button.

    If the “door” icon desappears on the

    display, the door can be opened.

    If the “door” light does not goes off,

    this means that the machine is already

    heating, that the water level is above the

    bottom edge of the door or that the drum

    is turning. In this case the door can not be

    opened.

    If you cannot open the door but you need

    to open it you have to switch the machine

    off by turning the selector dial to O. After

    about 3 minutes the door can be opened

    (pay attention to the water level and

    temperature!).

    At the end of the programme

    The machine stops automatically. Some

    acoustic signals sound for 2 minutes.

    If the Rinse Hold or Night Cycle

    options have been selected, the

    Start/Pause light goes off, a flashing

    0.00” will appear on the display, the

    (Door) icon is still visualized and the door

    remains locked to indicate that the water

    must be emptied out before opening the

    door.

    To empty out the water please read

    the steps on the Rinse Hold option

    paragraph.

    At the end of the cycle, turn the programme

    selector dial to O to switch the machine off.

    Remove the laundry from the drum and

    carefully check that the drum is empty. If

    you do not intend to carry out another

    wash, close the water tap. Leave the door

    open to prevent the formation of mildew

    and unpleasant smells.

    Washing hints

    Sorting the laundry

    Follow the wash code symbols on each

    garment label and the manufacturer’s

    washing instructions. Sort the laundry as

    follows: whites, coloureds, synthetics,

    delicates, woollens.

    Temperatures

    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 first

    wash; they should therefore be washed

    separately the first time.

    Make sure that no metal objects

    are left in the laundry (e.g. hair

    clips, safety pins, pins).

    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.

    Treat curtains with special care. Remove

    hooks or tie them up in a bag or net.

    Maximum loads

    Recommended loads are indicated in

    the programme charts.

    General rules:

    Cotton, linen: drum full but not too

    tightly packed;

    Synthetics: drum no more than half full;

    Delicate fabrics and woollens: drum

    no more than one third full.

    Washing a maximum load makes the

    most efficient use of water and energy.

    For heavily soiled laundry, reduce the

    load size.

    Laundry weights

    The following weights are indicative:

    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 garment on a soft

    surface and dab the stain with the

    fingertips and a cotton cloth.

    Rust: oxalic acid dissolved in hot water

    or a 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 and fast coloureds only).

    Grass: soap lightly and treat with bleach

    (whites and fast coloureds only).

    Ball point pen and glue: moisten with

    acetone (*), lay the garment on a soft

    cloth and dab the stain.

    Lipstick: moisten with acetone as

    above, then treat stains with methylated

    spirits. Remove any residual marks from

    white fabrics 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 acetone (*),

    then with acetic acid; treat any residual

    marks on white fabrics with bleach and

    then rinse thoroughly.

    Tar stains: first treat with stain remover,

    methylated spirits or benzine, then rub

    with detergent paste.

    (*) do not use acetone on artificial silk.

    Detergents and additives

    Good washing results also depend on

    the choice of detergent 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

    detergents may 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 special

    for woollens only.

    The detergent and any additives must

    be placed in the appropriate

    compartments of the dispenser drawer

    before starting the wash programme.

    If using concentrated powder or liquid

    detergents, a programme without

    prewash must be selected.

    The washing machine incorporates a

    recirculation system which allows an

    optimal use of the concentrated

    detergent.

    Pour liquid detergent into the dispenser

    drawer compartment marked just

    before starting the programme.

    Any fabric softener or starching additives

    must be poured into the compartment

    marked before starting the wash

    programme.

    132981910.qxd 31/08/2006 9.24 Pagina 18

  • Page 19:

    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.

    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 company, or from your local

    authority.

    Follow the product manufacturers’

    instructions on quantities to use.

    Use less detergent if:

    • you are washing a small load,

    • the laundry is lightly soiled,

    • large amounts of foam form during

    washing.

    26 electrolux care and cleaning

    Care and cleaning

    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

    machine. Do this separately from any

    laundry washing, and according to the

    softening powder manufacturer's

    instructions. This will help to prevent

    the formation of lime deposits.

    After each wash

    Leave the door open for a while. This

    helps to prevent mould and stagnant

    smells forming inside the appliance.

    Keeping the door open after a wash

    will also help to preserve the door seal.

    Maintenance Wash

    With the use of low temperature

    washes it is possible to get a build up

    of residues inside the drum.

    We recommend that a maintenance

    wash be performed on a regular basis.

    To run a maintenance wash:

    • The drum should be empty of

    laundry.

    • Select the hottest cotton wash

    programme.

    • Use a normal measure of detergent,

    must be a powder with biological

    properties.

    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 downwards 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 compartment should be

    removed.

    Cleaning the drawer recess

    Having removed the drawer, use a

    small brush to clean the recess,

    ensuring that all washing powder

    residue is removed from the upper and

    lower part of the recess.

    Replace the drawer and run the rinse

    programme without any clothes in the

    drum.

    • 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 containfer 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.

    P1114

    P0038

    • Remove any objects from the pump

    impeller by rotating it.

    • Put the cap back on the emergency

    emptying hose and place the latter

    back in its seat.

    • Screw the pump cover fully in.

    • Close the pump door.

    Warning!

    When the appliance is in use and

    depending on the programme selected

    there can be hot water in the pump.

    28 electrolux care and cleaning

    Never remove the pump cover during a

    wash cycle, always wait until the

    appliance has finished the cycle, and is

    empty. When replacing the cover, ensure

    it is securely retightened so as to stop

    leaks and young children being able to

    remove it.

    Cleaning the water inlet filter

    If your water is very hard or contains

    traces of lime deposit, the water inlet

    filter may become clogged.

    It is therefore a good idea to clean it

    from time to time.

    Turn off the water tap. Unscrew the

    water inlet hose. Clean the filter using a

    hard bristle brush. Tighten up the inlet

    hose.

    The dangers of freezing

    If the machine is exposed to

    temperatures below 0°C, certain

    precautions should be taken.

    • Turn off the water tap.

    • Unscrew the inlet hose.

    • Place the end of the emergency

    emptying hose and that of the inlet

    hose in a bowl placed on the floor and

    let water drain out.

    • Screw the water inlet hose back on

    and reposition the emergency

    emptying hose after having put the

    cap on again.

    P1090

    • When you intend to start the machine

    up again, make sure that the room

    temperature is above 0°C.

    Emergency emptying out

    If the water is not discharged, proceed

    as follows to empty out the machine:

    • pull out the plug from the power

    socket;

    • close the water tap;

    • if necessary, wait until the water has

    cooled down;

    • open the pump door;

    • place a bowl on the floor and place

    the end of the emergency emptying

    hose into the bowl. Remove its cap.

    The water should drain by gravity into

    the bowl. When the bowl is full, put

    the cap back on the hose. Empty the

    bowl. Repeat the procedure until water

    stops 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.

    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

    hose from the drum and remove the

    polystyrene block fitted with the

    adhesive tape on the door seal.

    7. Fill the smaller upper hole and the two

    large ones with the corresponding

    plastic plug caps supplied in the bag

    containing the instruction booklet.

    Positioning

    Install the machine on a flat hard floor.

    Make sure that air circulation around the

    machine is not impeded by carpets,

    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.

    If necessary, check the setting with a

    spirit level.

    Any necessary adjustment can be made

    with a spanner.

    HEC0005

    HEC0010

    Accurate levelling prevents vibration,

    noise and displacement of the machine

    during operation.Never place cardboard,

    wood or similar materials under the

    machine to compensate for any

    unevenness in the floor.

    Water inlet

    An inlet hose is supplied and can been

    found inside the machine drum. Do not

    use the hose from your previous

    machine to connect to the water supply.

    1. Open the porthole and extract the

    inlet hose.

    2. Connect the hose with the angled

    connection to the machine.

    Do not place the inlet hose

    downwards. Angle the hose to the

    left or right depending on the

    position of your water tap.

    3. 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.

    4. Connect the hose to a tap with a 3/4”

    thread. Always use the hose supplied

    with the appliance.

    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.

    The inlet hose is provided with a water

    stop device, which protects against

    damage caused by water leaks in the

    hose which could develop due to natural

    ageing of the hose. This fault is shown

    by a red sector in the window “A”.

    Should this occur, turn the water tap off

    and refer to your Service Centre to

    replace the hose.

    Water drainage

    The end of the drain hose can be

    positioned in three ways:

    Hooked over the edge of a sink

    using the plastic hose guide

    supplied with the machine. In this

    case, make sure the end cannot come

    unhooked when the machine is

    emptying. This could be done by tying it

    to the tap with a piece of string or

    attaching it to the wall.

    In a sink drain pipe branch. This

    branch must be above the trap so that

    the bend is at least 60 cm above the

    ground.

    Directly into a drain pipe at a

    height of not less than 60 cm and not

    more than 90 cm. The end of the drain

    hose must always be ventilated, i.e.

    the inside diameter of the drain pipe

    must be larger than the outside diameter

    of the drain hose.

    The drain hose must not be kinked.

    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 Centre.

    To save water, energy and to help

    protect the environment, we recommend

    that you follow these tips:

    • Normally soiled laundry may be

    washed without prewashing in order to

    save detergent, water and time (the

    environment is protected too!).

    • The machine works more

    economically if it is fully loaded.

    • With adequate pre-treatment, stains

    and limited soiling can be removed;

    the laundry can then be washed at a

    lower temperature.

    • Measure out detergent according to

    the water hardness, the degree of

    soiling and the quantity of laundry

    being washed.
