The machine automatically displays the maximum
temperature and spin speed values set for the selected
cycle, or the most recently-used settings if they are
compatible with the selected cycle. The temperature
can be decreased by pressing the button, until
the cold wash “OFF” setting is reached. The spin
speed may be progressively reduced by pressing
the button, until it is completely excluded (the
“OFF” setting). If these buttons are pressed again, the
maximum values are restored.
Setting a delay timer.
To set a delayed start for the selected cycle, press the
corresponding button repeatedly until the required delay
period has been reached. When this option has been
activated, the symbol lights up on the display. To

7. START THE WASH CYCLE. Press the START/
PAUSE button. The corresponding indicator light will
turn blue, remaining lit in a fixed manner, and the door
will be locked (the DOOR LOCKED symbol will be lit).
To change a wash cycle while it is in progress, pause

unload the laundry and switch off the machine.
! If you wish to cancel a cycle which has already begun,
press and hold the button. The cycle will be stopped
and the machine will switch off.
Load balancing system
Before every spin cycle, to avoid excessive vibrations
before every spin and to distribute the load in a uniform
manner, the drum rotates continuously at a speed which
is slightly greater than the washing rotation speed. If,
after several attempts, the load is not balanced correctly,
the machine spins at a reduced spin speed. If the load is
excessively unbalanced, the washing machine performs
the distribution process instead of spinning. To encourage
improved load distribution and balance, we recommend
small and large garments are mixed in the load.
