I purchased the unit from a private party and the original owners manual was not available. Having the ability to download it was extremely helpful and clarified operating the equipment immensely. This is a complicated unit and without the manual I would not have been able to maximize it's potential. Thank you.

12. How to change a programme during its cycle
Before you make any change, you must pause the washing machine by pressing the START/PAUSE button. It is possible to change any phase before the programme carries it out. Changing the type of fabric or temperature is possible, obviously, only during the washing phase. When you make a change in these two parameters, the washing machine will resume the cycle from the beginning. If it is necessary to drain the water in order to change the programme in progress, proceed as follows: â¢ PAUSE the machine by pressing the START/PAUSE button; â¢ press the RESET (ANUL.) button repeatedly, until only the DRAIN (DESCARGA) light remains lit; â¢ press the START/PAUSE button again. When the water has been drained, the display shows a blinking zero. You may now select a new programme and press the START/PAUSE button to start it.
Pay attention to the level and temperature of the water in the washing machine! When you close the door and press the ON/OFF button again, the washing machine will resume the programme from the point where it had been interrupted.
15. End of programme
At the end of the programme, the washing machine stops automatically, gives an audible signal, and displays a blinking zero. If you had selected the RINSE HOLD (AGUA EN LA CUBA) option, the START/PAUSE button light flashes to indicate that the water must be drained. The display shows a steadily lit zero. When the programme has been completed, a blinking zero appears on the display and the audible signal is given. The DOOR LOCKED light goes out at once. Press the SKIP/RESET button repeatedly to erase the programme that has just been carried out. If you omit to do this, the next time you switch the washing machine on, the blinking zero will appear on the display and you will hear the audible signal. Note: when you switch the machine on, if you must erase the previously performed programme, it is also sufficient to press the FABRIC (TEJIDOS) button and select a new programme. Press the ON/OFF button to switch the machine off. The relevant light will go out. Remove the laundry from the washing machine. Check whether the drum is completely empty, by rotating it with your hand. The purpose of this is to prevent any items of laundry from remaining accidentally in the drum, where they might get damaged in a subsequent wash (e.g. by shrinking) or bleed colour into another load of laundry. We advise you to close the water supply tap and disconnect the plug from the socket. Leave the door ajar in order to air the washing machine.
13. How to cancel a programme during its cycle
To cancel a programme that is being carried out, first pause the washing machine by pressing the START/PAUSE button, then press the RESET (ANUL.) button repeatedly, until the display shows three blinking dashes.
14. How to open the door during the cycle of a programme
You can open the door, after having set the washing machine to PAUSE, provided the following conditions exist: â¢ the washing machine is not in the heating phase beyond 40Â°C; â¢ the level of the water is not high; â¢ the drum is not turning. If these requirements are met, when you pause the washing machine, the DOOR LOCKED light goes out and the door can be opened. Should it not be possible to open the door, and should it be absolutely necessary to do so, switch the machine off by pressing the ON/OFF button. After approximately 2 minutes, you can open the door. 43
