If unexpected difficulties arise
• Before contacting your local Service Force

the following minor causes.
The motor does not function:
• Has the fuse blown?
• Is there damage to the mains cable, plug or
socket? Turn off the power supply. Pull out the
plug before checking!
• Never open the motor yourself!
Water does not flow out:
• Switch off the power supply. Pull out the plug!
Check whether the outlet spout is blocked by a
piece of washing.
• Press the spin drum from the inside against the
outer casing with your hand and remove the
piece of washing.
The spin dryer does not pick up spin
• Please note that the spin dryer normally
overcomes a certain amount of unbalance itself
when picking up spin speed. The motor and spin
drum are suspended flexibly for that reason.
• However, if the unbalance is too great (brought
about by incorrect loading of the spin dryer),
the machine cannot pick up spin speed.
The spin dryer “jumps”:
1. Switch off the spin dryer immediately!
2. When the drum has come to a standstill, repack
the washing evenly.
