This place is amazing. Got our manual in a few hours. Print quality is excellent. Even the manufacturer didn't have this manual. The price was excellent. How many more stars can I give them? More than satisfied.
This was a very hard to find manual. The unit is long discontinued and Pioneer doesn't retain every manual for every model. Thanks owner's-manual.com!

3. HOW TO DO A WASH ?
Before the first wash in your washing machine, we recommend that you should do a preliminary wash at 90Â°C with detergent but without any washing to clean the tub.
3.4. Choice of the required option
The various options should be chosen after the programme has been displayed and before pressing the Start/Pause pushbutton. Press the required pushbutton(s) ; the corresponding lights come on. When you press again, the lights go off. When one of these options is not compatible with the chosen programme, the corresponding light will flash for a few seconds (see programme table).
3.1. Loading the washing
â¢ â¢ â¢ Lift the machine cover. Open the drum by pressing on the locking button A; the two flaps automatically separate. Insert the washing, close the drum and the cover of your washing machine. Warning : before you close the cover of your washing machine, make sure that the drum door is properly closed: â¢ the two flaps latched together, â¢ the locking button A extended.
3.4.1. Â«SpinÂ» pushbutton
This pushbutton allows to choose between two functions : â¢ Spinning speed reduction 850/450 function This function reduces the spinning speed to 450 rpm on all washing programmes. â¢ Rinse hold function If you use this function, the tub remains full of water at the end of the last rinse to prevent the washing from becoming creased if it is not taken out of the drum as soon as the washing machine is stopped.
3.2. Proportioning of detergents
Your washing machine was designed to reduce water and detergent consumption, therefore reduce the doses recommended by detergent manufacturers. Pour the powder detergent dose into the wash compartment and into the prewash compartment if you chose the Â«prewashÂ» option. Pour in the softener into the compartment if you wish. If you are using a different type of detergent, refer to the Â«detergents and additivesÂ» section in the washing guide.
3.4.2. Â«PrewashÂ» pushbutton
The washing machine does a prewash at 30Â°C maximum. The prewash finishes with a brief spinning for cotton and synthetic programs, and by a draining for delicates programs.
3.4.3. Â«Quick washÂ» pushbutton
If you select this function, the wash time is reduced depending on which program you chose.
3.3. Choice of the required programme
The programmes table will tell you which is the appropriate programme for your washing type (see Â§ 4). Put the programme selector onto the required programme ; the lights corresponding to the phases making up the programme will light up.
3.4.4. Â«Super rinseÂ» pushbutton
This option adds two rinses on Cotton, Synthetics and Delicates programs. It is advised for allergic people to detergent products and in areas with fresh water.
3.5. Starting the programme
After you chose the washing programme, press the Start/Pause pushbutton to start the cycle. The corresponding light stays on. It is normal that the programme selector does not turn during the cycle.
When the cycle begins, the status of cycle is displayed by the corresponding led.
