Selecting “More cycles” on the control dial gives you access to extra wash cycles shown in the table above.
The cycle duration indicated on the display or instruction manual is an estimate based on standard conditions. The actual duration may vary in relation to several factors, such as the temperature and pressure of the incoming water, ambient temperature, amount of detergent, load quantity and type, load balancing and any additional options selected. The values given for programmes other than the Eco 40-60 programme are indicative only.

  • Eco 40-60 – Test wash cycle in compliance with EU Eco design regulation 2019/2014. The most efficient programme in terms of energy and water consumption for washing normally soiled cotton laundry. On this cycle the Auto dose system is disabled and is recommended to use powder detergent in the manual dosing department.

Note: spin speed values shown on the display can slightly differs from the values stated in the table.

For all testing institutes:

  • Long cotton cycle: set wash cycle “Cotton ” with a temperature of 40°C.
  •  Long synthetics cycle: set wash cycle “Synthetics ” with a temperature of 40°C.
    • By selecting the “Spin & Drain” cycle and excluding the spin cycle, the washing machine will drain only.
    • The duration of the wash cycles can be checked on the display.
    •  After programme end and spinning with maximum selectable spin speed, in default programme setting.

The automatic dosing system will intake the amount of liquid detergent accordingly to the selected level and selected program, and it will ajust it also to the load detected, while for the softner the system is automatically adjusting in according to selected program and automatic load detected. The intelligent dosing system has been activated at the factory for all the designated programmes and can be deactivated for each one individually.
In order to use intelligent dosing, fill the dispenser.

  • Fill the dispenser only with suitable detergent and care products
  • If you change the liquid detergent or fabric softener, empty and clean the dispenser beforehand.
  • Pour liquid detergent (Detergent) and fabric softener (Softener) into the relevant dispensers every time the related icon is showing empty level.
  • Steam Hygiene
    This option enhances washing performance by generating steam during the wash cycle to remove any bacteria from the fibres, which are treated at the same time. Place the laundry in the drum, choose a compatible programme and select option Steam Hygiene.
    •  The steam generated during the operation of the washing machine may cause the porthole door to become hazy.
  • GentlePower
    The new Gentle Power Technology is designed to protect your garments while ensuring powerful results.

Innovative Steam Finish system takes care of your garments inside the washing machine with delicate steaming and tumbling action (tested by SSOG lab). Steam Finish system gently massages the laundry with regular slow movements alternated with steam actions – letting air circulate inside the fibers to keep garments fresh and prevent bad odours. Steam Finish treatment leaves truly fresher clothes and peace of mind – even hours after the end of the cycle. Steam Finish treatment inhibits the proliferation of the main bad odour sources (inside the washing machine) up to 6 hours after the washing ends. Not compatible with programmes designed for delicate garments and duvets.

  • Divide the laundry according to:
    Type of fabric (cotton, mixed fibres, synthetics, wool, garments to be hand-washed). Colour (separate coloured garments from whites, wash new coloured garments separately). Delicates (small garments – such as nylon stockings – and items with hooks – such as bras: insert them in a fabric bag).
  • Empty the pockets:
    Objects such as coins or lighters can damage the washing machine and the drum. Check all buttons.
  • Follow the dosage recommendation / additives
    It optimizes the cleaning result, it avoids irritating residues of surplus detergent in your laundry and it saves money by avoiding waste of surplus detergent
  • Use low temperature and longer duration
    The most efficient programmes in terms of energy consumption are generally those that perform at lower temperatures and longer duration.
  • Observe the load sizes
    Load your washing machine up to the capacity indicated in the “PROGRAMME CHART” table to save water and energy.
  • Noise and remaining moisture content
    They are influenced by the spinning speed: the higher the spinning speed in the spinning phase, the higher the noise and the lower the remaining moisture content.


Before performing cleaning and maintenance, switch the washing machine off and disconnect it from the mains power. Do not use flammable liquids to clean the washing machine. Clean and maintain your washer – dryer periodically (at least 4 times per year).

  • Disconnect the water and power supplies
    Close the water tap after every wash. This will limit wear on the hydraulic system inside the washing machine and help to prevent leaks.
    Unplug the washing machine when cleaning it and during all maintenance work.
  • Clean the washing 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.
    Clean the detergent dispenser drawer Wash it under running water; this operation should be repeated frequently.
  • Care for the door and drum
    Always leave the porthole door ajar in order to prevent unpleasant odours from forming.
  • Check the water inlet hose
    Check the water inlet hose at least once a year. If it is cracked or broken, it must be replaced: during wash cycles, the high pressure of the water could suddenly split the hose open.
    • Never use hoses that have already been used.
  • Cleaning the drain pump filter / draining residual water
    Switch off and unplug the washing machine, before cleaning the drain pump filter or draining residual water. If you used a hot wash programme, wait until the water has cooled down before draining any water. Clean the drain pump filter regularly, to avoid that the water cannot drain after the wash due to obstruction of the filter. If the water cannot drain, the display indicates that the drain pump filter may be clogged.
  1. Power Off and unplug the washing machine from the electrical outlet.
  2. Gently press the top area of the filter cover to open.
  3. Place a container close to the pump to collect any spillage.
  4. Stretch the “emergency drain hose” to the container.
  5. Turn the stopper of the “emergency drain hose” at the end of the hose and let the water flow into the container.
  6. Turn the exhaust filter handle and pull it out of the housing . When the container is full with water, plug the stopper to the hose end, and reinsert the small hose in the washing machine’s base . After, empty the container . Afterwards firmly close the emergency drain hose with the stopper .
  7. Remove filter: Lay a cotton cloth beneath the drain pump filter, which can absorb a small amount of water . Then remove the drain pump filter by turning it out anticlockwise .
  8. . Clean the drain pump filter: remove residues in the filter and clean it under running water .
  9. Insert the drain pump filter: Reinsert the drain pump filter again by turning it in clockwise direction . Make sure to turn it in as far as it goes; the filter handle must be in vertical position . To test water tightness of the drain pump filter, you can pour about 1 liter of water into the detergent dispenser .
