Here are the 11 topics explained in this manual. Read,

learn and have fun: you will discover many secret

ways to get a better wash, more easily and making

your washing machine last longer.

1. Installation and removal (p. 10)

Installation, after delivery or transport, is the most important

operation for the correct functioning of your Margherita washing

machine. Always check:

1. That the electric system conforms to regulations;

2. That the inlet and draining pipes are connected correctly.

Never use pipes that have already been used;

3. That the washing machine is levelled properly; something worth

checking to aid the performance of your washing machine;

4. That the drum's fixing screws have been removed from the back

of the washing machine.

How to eliminate the most common stains

Ink and biro Dab with a wad of cotton soaked in methyl alcohol or alcohol at 90°.

Tar Dab with fresh butter, rub in turpentine then wash immediately.

Wax Scrape away, then run a hot iron between two sheets of absorbent paper. Then rub in cotton with

turpentine or methyl alcohol.

Chewing gum Rub in nail polish remover and wipe with a clean rag.

Mold Cotton and white linen should be placed in a solution of 5 parts water, one bleach and a spoon of vinegar,

then washed immediately. For other white fabrics, use hydrogen peroxide at 10 volumes and wash immediately.

Lipstick Dab with ether on wool or cotton. Use tricloroetilene for silk.

Nail polish Place a sheet of absorbent paper on the side of the stain, wet it with nail polish remover, shifting the

garment as the sheet gradually changes colour.

Grass Dab with a wad of cotton soaked in methyl alcohol.

Special programmes

Class A at 40°C Margherita has a special programme to allow you to obtain optimum results even at low temperatures.

By setting programme 4 at a temperature of 40° C, the results you will obtain will be the same as you would normally obtain at 60°C

thanks to the washing machines action and the length of the wash cycle.

Daily wash Margherita has a programme available for the washing of lightly soiled garments in a short amount of time.

By setting programme 9 at a temperature of 30°C, you can wash different types of fabrics together (except for wool and silk), with a

maximum load of 3 kg. This programmes allows you to save on both time and energy as it only lasts around 30 minutes.

washing machine.

Do not forget to empty all pockets: small objects can cause

damage to your friend Margherita.

When in need, check the pump and the rubber hose.

Margherita comes equipped with a self-cleaning pump that does not require any cleaning or maintenance. Small objects

may accidentally fall into the pump: coins, hair clips, loose buttons and other small items. To avoid possible damage,

they are withheld in an accessible pre-chamber, situated at the lower end of the pump.

Attention: Before attempting to examine this pre-chamber,

first ensure that the machine has finished its programme and

is empty. Unplug the machine, as with any maintenance.

To gain access gently ease down the top of the plinth panel

situated at the base of the machine, with a screwdriver etc,

to release it. Then ease the top edge forward to allow it to be

lifted clear (Fig. 1). Place a shallow dish or tray below the

cover of the pre-chamber to catch the small amount of water

present. Release the cover by turning anti-clockwise (Fig. 2).

Fig. 1

Fig. 2

Ensure that the cover is securely replaced.

Re-fit the plinth cover by inserting the hooks on its lower

edge into the slots and ease the top edge back into position.

The water inlet hose

Check the rubber hose at least once a year. If you see any cracks, replace it immediately. When you use your washing

machine, water pressure is very strong and a cracked tube could easily split open.

Instalação e mudança (p. 24)

A instalação, depois da entrega ou depois de uma mudança, é a

operação mais importante para o bom funcionamento de Margheri-

1. Se a instalação eléctrica está em conformidade com as normas;

2. Se os tubos de carregamento e descarga de água estão ligados

correctamente. Nunca utilize tubos já usados;

3. Se a máquina de lavar roupa está nivelada. Este factor é importante

para a duração da máquina de lavar roupa e para a qualidade da lavagem;

4. Que tenham sido tirados os parafusos que prendem o tambor,

situados na traseira da máquina de lavar roupa.
