The drain or inlet hose is damaged.

■ Check the correct levelling of the appliance.
The laundry is not evenly distributed in the drum.
■ Redistribute the laundry.
Maybe there is very little laundry in the drum.
■ Load more laundry.
Spinning starts late or the machine does not spin:The electronic unbalance detection device has cut in because the laundry is not evenly distributed in the drum. The laundry is redistributed by reverse rotation of the drum. This may happen several times before the unbalance disappears and normal spinning can resume. If, after 10 minutes, the laundry is still not evenly distributed in the drum, the machine will not spin. In this case, redistribute the load manually and select the spin programme.
■ Redistribute the laundry.
The load is too small.
■ Add more items, redistribute the load manually and then select the spinning programme.
The machine makes an un- usual 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 drum:Machines based on modern technology operate very economically using very little water without affecting performance.
The machine does not dry or does not dry properly:The drying time or the dryness degree has not been selected.
• Select the drying time or the dryness degree.
The water tap is not turned on.
■ Open the water tap.
The drain filter is clogged.
• Clean the drain filter.
The machine is overloaded.
■ Reduce the laundry load in the drum.
The selected drying programme, time or dryness degree was not suitable for the laundry.
■ Select the suitable drying programme, time or dryness degree for the laundry.
The laundry is full of different colored fluff:The fabrics washed in the previous cycle released fluff of a different color
■ The drying phase helps to eliminate some fluff.
■ Clean the clothes with a fluff remover.
In case of an excessive amount of fluff in the drum repeat the following procedure twice:
• Thoroughly clean the empty drum, the gasket and the door with a wet rag.
■ Perform a rinse cycle.
■ Put a wool or piled fabric rag inside the drum.
■ Perform a drying cycle of 10 minutes.
■ Remove the old wool cloth.
Now you can wash other garments.
