Water Supply
This machine should only be connected to a cold-water supply. The cold-water
pressure should be between 0.5 and 8 bar (0.05-0.8 Mpa).
Do not connect the machine to a single outlet instantaneous water heater.
Before connecting the fill hose, check that the water is running from the water supply
tap to be used. Let the water flow from the tap until the water runs clear before
connecting to the machine. The water supply tap should be accessible when the
machine is installed.
Connecting the Cold Water
Supply
Only one hose is required to install this machine to a cold water supply. Cold fill is an
energy efficient system. Only the water required to wash the laundry is heated. There
is no loss of heat in the pipeline from the hot water tank or the boiler.
If your previous machine installation was hot and cold fill ensure that the hot tap is
firmly closed to prevent leakage.
This machine has an inlet hose with a 19mm (3/4") threaded ferrule fitted to the end,
to attach between the threaded connector on the appliance and the water supply. Only
use the new hose supplied to connect the machine and ensure that the sealing washers
are in place inside the hose connectors.
Do not re-use old hoses that are attached to existing installations.
Do not over-tighten the connections. Hand tight is sufficient.
Do not trap or kink the hose.
Step 1. Connect the elbow end of the hose
provided to the threaded inlet on the back of the
machine.
The grey pipe needs to connect to the white
threaded inlet on the machine.
Step 2. Hand tighten the connector.
Step 3. Connect the straight ends of the pipes to
the water supply; ensure that there are no kinks.
Step 4. Turn on the water supply and check there
are no leaks. If there is a leak, turn off the water
supply, disconnect the hose and check the sealing
washers are in place. Refit the hose and turn on
the water supply.

Automatic Features
KG Mode (Half Load)
Available on the Cottons and Synthetics cycles, the intelligent sensor adjusts the water
level and programme length throughout each phase of the cycle according to how
much laundry you load into the machine. The KG Mode indicator will light up when
the intelligent sensor is weighing the laundry.
The washing machine is fitted with a self-adjusting water level system. This system
enables the machine to use the optimum amount of water needed to wash and rinse
the laundry in relation to the particular load. This results in a reduction of the water
and electricity used without in any way compromising the washing and rinsing
performance. The amount of water and electricity used will always be appropriate for
the clothes load size.
The washing machine automatically ensures excellent washing results at minimum cost
whilst respecting the environment.
Out of Balance protection
This model is fitted with an electronic sensor device that checks if the load is balanced
correctly. If the load is slightly unbalanced the machine will re-balance it automatically
and then carry out the normal spin. If, after several attempts, balance is not restored a
reduced spin speed will be used. If loads are seriously unbalanced the spin stage will
be cancelled. This helps limit vibration, reduce noise and improve the washing
machine's reliability and life.
8 Pulse technology
This washing machine is equipped with an innovative system that by means of 8 high
pressure jets, sprays a mixture of water and detergent directly into the load.
When the cycle is started, in conjunction with the 8 high pressure jets spraying the
detergent mixture into the load, the cycle includes a set of spin actions that helps the
detergent solution to penetrate into the fibers, helping dirt removal and ensuring the
best available wash performance.
The spin cycle at the beginning of the wash is therefore a normal phase of the
program and should not be regarded as a malfunction of the machine.
The 8 pulse system is also used during the rinse phase where the high pressure jets aid
the complete removal of detergent residues trapped in the clothes.
