Cautions and advice


In order to get maximum satisfaction and performance from your washing machine,
please ensure you follow the instructions given below:

9 Select the clothes load correctly and choose the appropriate


programme.
9 Before opening the door, check that there is no water in the
machine and the pilot light is off.
9 Put the washing products in the right proportion and in the right
compartment.
9 Small garments, such as socks, belts, etc. are best put inside a
bag to avoid their being lost.
9 Before putting clothes into the washing machine, make sure that
there is nothing in the pockets (coins, buttons, clips, etc.) and that
the zips are undone.
9 If you machine has a filter, you should check regularly that
it is clean & not blocked. Be especially wary of coins,
brassiere wire & fluff/hair.
9 The interior of the washing machine should be handled by
specialists only. NEVER attempt to repair or modify it
yourself.
9 After each wash, leave the door ajar to prevent the rubber seal
from becoming misshapen or mouldy.
9 When the clothes to be washed are heavily soiled or splattered
with mud, it is advisable to run a programme with pre-wash.
9 Always put the machine on fully loaded. This will conserve energy.
9 Do NOT use the dryer function if the clothes have been treated
with any non-aqueous solution.
9 Do NOT use the dryer function for items containing any kind of
spongy rubber or similar elastomer materials.
9 The dryer must be installed in a well-ventilated place, away from
the influence of gases from other appliances and from defective
installations.
9 The lower ventilation, between the floor and the base of the
machine must not be obstructed (by carpet, cloths, etc.).
9 When the machine has just been installed, or after a long time
without it being used, it is advisable to run a washing programme
with the machine empty, to eliminate any rusty water in the tubes.

in a washing bag.

(PLEASE SEE THE CHART BELOW TO UNDERSTAND YOUR WASHING LABELS)

WASHING LABELS & THEIR MEANINGS

10

Filling your Washing


Machines Dispenser Drawer
with Detergent

Dispenser Drawer
The dispenser drawer consists of three compartments:
1)

Pre-wash / Bio-wash Compartment

This compartment should be used only when programmes involving pre-wash or biowash have been selected. The amount of power used will depend on the fabric type
to be washed. We recommend following the detergent manufacturers directions.

2)

Main wash Compartment

This compartment is used to store detergent that is going to be used in the main
washing cycle of any complete washing programme.

3)

Fabric Conditioner Compartment

This compartment is used for fabric softeners. At the end of the washing programme,
water will automatically be siphoned out, leaving the compartment ready for the next
wash. NOTE: THERE IS A SIDE COMPARTMENT ON THE RIGHT (CL) THAT IS FOR
BLEACH.

IMPORTANT!
The detergent dispenser drawer and housing must be cleaned periodically
to ensure that detergent and fabric softener do not build up and reduce
the appliances efficiency. To remove the drawer, pull it forward to its
fullest extent, lifting the front edge at the same time, then give a firm tug.
The dispenser drawer should now be rinsed, dried and replaced.
11

HOW MUCH DETERGENT SHOULD I USE?


NOTE: You will need more detergent for washing cycles
containing dirtier clothes.

o For very dirty


clothes, select a
programme with prewashing, fill
compartment 1 with of
the amount of the
detergent you are putting
in compartment 2.

o For clothes that are only

slightly dirty, do not prewash and put only a


small amount of
detergent into
compartment 2 in your
washing machines
dispenser drawer.

CAUTION: Only use detergents for automatic


washing machines. The amount needed for different
washing loads and types will be written on the packaging
of your detergent.

NOTE: The harder the water in


your area, the more detergent you
will need to use.
SOFTENERS
9 Fill the softener compartment in your detergent drawer with
softener. Do not exceed the MAX level. Otherwise, the softener will
diffuse in the washing water through the siphon. Dilute high density
softeners first.

FLUID DETERGENTS
9 You can use fluid detergents in all programs without pre-washing.
For this, move the fluid detergent level plate in the second compartment
of the detergent drawer and pour in the amount of fluid detergent
according to the levels on this plate.
12

Tips on washing your clothes.


Dirtiness
Sort the clothes according to
dirtiness. Give special
treatment to those which are
very dirty or have got difficult
stains.
Treat very dirty areas like
collars and cuffs before
washing.
Wash clothes that are only
slightly dirty in short
programmes. In this way,
you will save energy as well
as get better results.
Wash averagely dirty clothes
in a normal wash programme.

Wash very dirty clothes in a


Long Programme with a
Prewash.

Sensitivity
Certain clothes, either because
of their fabric or the way they
are made, may be sensitive to
action of your machine. When
washing them, it is best to use
DELICATE PROGRAMMES.
You can wash woollen
garments( ) in the SPECIAL
WOOL PROGRAMME. Make
sure, first of all, that your
woollens are washable.

At the end of a Wash Programme


NOTE : YOU CAN ONLY SET YOUR APPLIANCE TO WASH
AND DRY A WASHLOAD BEFORE A WASHING CYCLE IF YOU
HAVE SET A HALF LOAD PROGRAMME AND ARE WASHING
A HALF LOAD OF LAUNDRY. YOU CANNOT DEFEAT THIS
RESTRICTION BY PLACING A FULL LOAD AND SELECTING
THE HALF LOAD BUTTON.

Provided the programme completes without interruptions, you can


open the loading door 2 minutes after it has completed. Take
out your clothes. If you have just washed a full load, take
out half of the laundry in the drum if you intend to use a
drying cycle, being mindful of the fabric type/s you are
about to dry.

CONTINUOUS WASH-DRY CYCLE


This feature of your appliance allows a drying cycle to follow
on from a washing cycle without your having to go
anywhere near your washer-dryer!
NOTE: You will need to set your washer-dryer to
perform this function if you do not want it to wash
and stop and then have to dry separately.

Set your washing programme as you would normally, but


REMEMBER THAT YOU MUST SELECT THE HALF-LOAD
FEATURE.
Set your drying timer as you would normally do for a
drying programme.
Bear the following in mind when setting this function

21

Set the drying time


using the timer knob,
remembering that

several short spells


are better than a long
pre-programmed one.

Select the washing


programme,
remembering that
your appliance will
not perform a drying
cycle if the wool
programme has been
selected.
To start the
machine, press the
ON/OFF button.

At the end of the


wash and dry
programme, the timer
knob will stop at
position 0.

Press the ON/OFF


button and
disconnect from the
power supply.

Remove your dried


wash load.

IMPORTANT REMINDERS:
Do not dry clothes that contain plastic (including
acrylic), foam or rubber or similar materials, or those
that have not been cleaned in a water solution. DO
NOT USE A PLASTIC DETERGENT DISPENSER ORB IN
THE DRUM!

YOUR DRYER
The drying section of the washer/dryer operates like
any other by blowing heated air onto wet clothes. This air
is then extracted from the machine.
In your washer/dryer, the moisture-laden air is blown
over cold water which causes the moisture to condense. It
is then pumped out of the machine. Therefore, it is
important that the machine is turned on and the drain
hose is correctly located during the drying cycle.

IMPORTANT: The appliance can be used


just as a tumble dryer but remember that the
cold water tap must be turned on and the drain
pipe must be in position.

22

TO USE THE DRYER:


1) Place or leave a maximum of 2kgs of clothes in the drum of
your appliance.

2) Select the required heat level either on FULL HEAT for normal
fabrics or HALF HEAT for delicates.

3) Turn the dryer timer to

the required time. Note


the knob can be set up to
a maximum of 140
minutes but we suggest
that you select a lower
time of approximately
30/40 minutes firstly.
You can check if the
laundry is dry and, if not,
add more minutes as
needed to prevent your

clothes from being overdried.

4) *Press the half load button*.


5) Press the ON/OFF switch.

At the end of the drying cycle, there is a 10 minute cool


down period. This will minimise creasing due to allowing
the fabric to cool down gently.

Warning.
During the wash and drying cycles, the glass porthole in
the door will become hot so keep children away. NEVER
USE THE DRYER WITH A PLASTIC DETERGENT
DISPENSING CUP IN THE DRUM.
IMPORTANT REMINDER:
Do not dry clothes that contain plastic, foam or rubber
(like) materials.
Do not dry clothes in the dryer that have not been
cleaned in a water solution.
REMEMBER NOT TO DRY WOOL IN YOUR DRYER!
23

MAINTENANCE AND
CLEANING:
Please note: Disconnect the power supply before
attempting maintenance or cleaning your washing machine.

Cleaning the outlet filter.


If you are using the drying feature on your appliance, you
will need to clean this out after every 3-4 washes. If you
have been drying clothes that will leave a lot of fluff or lint,
you will then need to clean this filter out after each such
cycle.
If, however, you have only been using the washing function, you should then clean this
filter after every 25 washing cycle programmes to keep the drain pump running
efficiently (this will enable more efficient washing and rinsing).

* NOTE: If you do not fit the filter cover properly, it


will leak water!

Cleaning the Inlet Valve Filter

24

Cleaning the Detergent Drawer


DETERGENT DRAWER

Detergents may form sediment in your detergent drawer or in the


housing of the detergent drawer over time.
To clean the sediment, pull out the detergent drawer from time to
time.

To pull out the detergent drawer:


Pull the detergent drawer to the end. (Diagram 1)
Lift the front of the drawer and pull it out (Diagram 2)
After the drawer has dried off, put it back into its housing the
same way you had pulled it out.

Cleaning the Siphon Plug


Pull out the detergent drawer. Remove the siphon plug and clean
the residues of the softener thoroughly. Fit the cleaned siphon plug
back in place. Make sure it is sitting properly in place.

25

Cleaning the Cabinet


9 Clean the exterior surface of your machine with lukewarm water
and a cleaning substance that will not harm or scratch the cabinet.
After rinsing with clean water, wipe it with a soft and dry cloth.
PLEASE NOTE: If your appliance is installed in a location where
the ambient temperature can fall below 0 C, do the following
(once before you know your machine will be unused for a long
time).
o Plug in your Washer-dryer.
o Close the water tap and pull out the water inlet hose or hoses from
the tap.
o Place the ends of the water drain and water inlet hoses in a cup on
the ground.
o Adjust the programme knob to Draining program.
o The Program Ready light will come on.
o Run the programme by pressing the Start/Pause button.
o Unplug your machine when the programme is over (i.e., when the
program end light is on).
* When you complete this process, the remaining water inside the
machine will be drained. There will now be no danger of ice forming.
When you use your washing machine again, be sure that the ambient
temperature is above 0 C.

Cleaning the Drum


*PLEASE NOTE: Do not leave metal parts like needles, staples or
coins inside your Washer-dryer. These items cause rust build-up in
the drum. To clean these stains away, use a cleaning substance (that
doesnt have chlorine in it) and follow the manufacturers guidelines.
Never use dish-washing wires or similarly rough objects.

*REMOVAL OF LIME FROM YOUR MACHINE


If you use the right amount of detergent in your washing machine,
there will be no need for lime removal. However, if you want to use
lime removers, please pay attention to their manufacturers warnings.

NOTE: Before installing your dcor door, you will have to decide
whether you want it to open to the LEFT or to the RIGHT.
1. Using the supplied template, mark the points where you are going to
drill the holes to attach the dcor door.

Taking a drill, make two holes of 2mm diameter and one hole of 3.5mm
diameter in the places illustrated below. Then attach the hinges with
screws. Shown below is the version opening to the RIGHT. Note: the
higher hinge is on the left (below) while the lower is on the right.

34

If you want the dcor door to open to the right, take a 1.2mm drill bit &
make a hole as shown in the illustration below. B (pictured below) is a
door magnet.

Now you will need to fit the anchoring lugs, screwing each one in as
shown in the illustration below.

35

If, however, you want to have your door opening to the left, you
reverse the procedure as shown in the procedure for the door
opening to the right at bottom of page 33.

Now you have to fit


the anchoring lugs
for the door.

IMPORTANT

Please note that in


the case of
attaching the door
so that it opens to
the left, the top left
hand anchoring lug
is to be fitted into
the position shown
in the illustration to
the left (5B).

36

Now, you are


ready to fix the
dcor door to
your washing
machine. The
illustration to
the left shows
the correct
positioning for
the door
opening to the
left.

Or, if installing
so that the door
opens to the
right, follow the
installation
instructions as
shown in the
picture on the
right.

37

ADDING THE TOP COVER TO YOUR WASHING MACHINE


For installing your washing machine in some spaces, you may need to lower
its height as much as possible. In addition to adjusting its height by turning
its feet, you can also replace the top of your appliance with an optional lower
one. To do this:

1.
Remove the old top
(A) by unscrewing the
screws that fasten it
to the machine.

2.
Remove the screws and
clasps from the cavity at
the top of your washing
machine.

3.
Place the new top over
the cavity and align the
screws to the holes
before fixing them in
place.

38

ADJUSTING THE FEET


CAUTION :
o DO NOT INSTALL YOUR MACHINE ON RUGS OR CARPETS.
o FOR YOUR WASHING MACHINE TO WORK SILENTLY & WITHOUT ANY VIBRATION, YOU
SHOULD POSITION IT ON FLAT, NON-SLIPPERY & TOUGH GROUND.
o YOU CAN ADJUST YOUR WASHING MACHINES LEVEL BY TURNING ITS FEET EITHER

1) FIRSTLY, LOOSEN THE PLASTIC


ADJUSTMENT NUT.
2) AFTER YOUVE REACHED THE
LEVEL YOU WANT, TIGHTEN THE
PLASTIC ADJUSTMENT NUTS
AGAIN BY ROTATING THEM
UPWARDS (ONE FOR EACH
FOOT).

3) NEVER PUT CARTONS, WOODEN

ELECTRICAL CONNECTION
YOUR WASHING MACHINE WORKS ON 220-240V & 50 Hz. IT COMES WITH ITS OWN
SPECIALLY MOULDED, EARTHED PLUG THAT HAS BEEN ATTACHED TO THE POWER
CABLE OF YOUR WASHING MACHINE. The plug must be inserted to an earthed socket
with 10 ampere. The fuse used in your plug must also be 10Amps. Should your electricity
supply not match these specifications, you should contact a qualified electrician to
accommodate this.
*REMINDER: WARNING! (PLEASE NOTE) Baumatic Ltd are not responsible for any
damages arising out of usage following failure to earth (ground) your appliance.

CONNECTING TO THE WATER MAINS


Depending on your
appliances features, it may
operate with a single water
inlet (cold) or a double water
inlet (hot/cold). THE WHITEHEADED HOSE IS FOR
THE COLD WATER INLET /
THE RED-HEADED HOSE
IS FOR THE HOT WATER
INLET (but ONLY for
machines with a double
water inlet system.
39

To prevent leakage from the connection joints, a seal (for machines with
cold water inlet only) or seals (for machines with hot & cold water inlets)
are included in the hose packing. Fit these seals at the end of the water
inlet hoses on the tap side. If your sink only has a mixing tap, use only
one hose and connect it to the cold water valve of the machine. In this
case, screw on the supplied cap to close the hot water valve.
1) Connect the WHITE-HEADED HOSE to the WATER INLET VALVE with the
white filter & connect the RED-HEADED HOSE to the WATER INLET
VALVE with the red filer (this is only applicable to machines with double
inlet systems).
2) Tighten (but do not over-tighten) the plastic parts of the connections with
your hand. Please call a qualified plumber to ensure safer connections.
