How to Choose the Right Programme for Your Zanussi Aquacycle 400 Washing Machine




Your washing machine has a variety of programmes that are designed to suit different types of fabrics and levels of dirtiness. You can select the programme that best suits your needs by turning the programme selector knob and checking the programme indicator light. Here are some of the main programmes and their features:


  • Cottons: This programme is suitable for white or coloured cotton items that are normally or heavily soiled. You can choose the temperature from 30C to 90C depending on the fabric and the degree of soil. The maximum load for this programme is 4 kg.



  • Synthetics: This programme is suitable for synthetic or mixed fabrics that are lightly or normally soiled. You can choose the temperature from 30C to 60C depending on the fabric and the degree of soil. The maximum load for this programme is 2 kg.



  • Delicates: This programme is suitable for delicate fabrics such as wool, silk, or viscose that are lightly or normally soiled. You can choose the temperature from cold to 40C depending on the fabric and the degree of soil. The maximum load for this programme is 1 kg.



  • Wool: This programme is suitable for machine-washable wool items that are lightly or normally soiled. You can choose the temperature from cold to 40C depending on the fabric and the degree of soil. The maximum load for this programme is 1 kg.



  • Rinse: This programme performs an extra rinse cycle to remove any detergent residues from your laundry. You can use this programme after any wash cycle or separately for rinsing hand-washed items.



  • Spin: This programme performs an extra spin cycle to remove excess water from your laundry. You can use this programme after any wash cycle or separately for spinning hand-washed items.



  • Drain: This programme drains the water from the drum without spinning. You can use this programme if you want to interrupt a programme and remove your laundry before the final spin.



For more information on how to choose the right programme for your washing machine, refer to the washing programmes section of the user manual.


How to Save Energy and Water with Your Zanussi Aquacycle 400 Washing Machine




Your washing machine is designed to be energy-efficient and water-saving, but you can also take some simple steps to reduce your environmental impact and save money on your bills. Here are some tips:


  • Use the correct amount of detergent according to the load size, water hardness, and degree of soil. Too much detergent will not improve the washing results and will cause excessive foaming and waste of water.



  • Use a prewash cycle only when necessary for heavily soiled items. A prewash cycle consumes extra water and energy.



  • Select a lower temperature when possible for lightly or normally soiled items. Washing at lower temperatures will save energy and protect your fabrics.



  • Load your washing machine to its full capacity, but do not overload it. A full load will optimize the use of water and energy, but overloading will reduce the washing performance and damage your laundry.



  • Use the rinse hold option only when necessary. This option prevents creasing by holding your laundry in water after the final rinse, but it also consumes extra water and energy.



For more information on how to save energy and water with your washing machine, refer to the tips for environmental protection section of the user manual.


How to Troubleshoot Your Zanussi Aquacycle 400 Washing Machine




Sometimes, your washing machine may not work as expected or may display an error code on the display panel. Before contacting our customer service, you can try to solve some common problems by following these troubleshooting tips:


  • If the washing machine does not start or does not fill with water, check that the door is properly closed, the plug is inserted into the socket, the water tap is turned on, and the programme selector knob is correctly set.



  • If the washing machine does not drain or spin, check that the drain hose is not kinked or blocked, the filter cap is securely tightened, and the programme selector knob is correctly set.



  • If the washing machine leaks water, check that the water inlet and outlet hoses are properly connected and tightened, the detergent dispenser drawer is not clogged, and the filter cap is securely tightened.



  • If the washing machine vibrates or makes noise, check that the transit devices have been removed, the appliance is levelled and stable, the load is evenly distributed in the drum, and there are no foreign objects in the drainage area.



  • If the washing machine stops during a programme or displays an error code, refer to the error code table in the user manual and follow the instructions. If the problem persists, contact our customer service.
