How to run a wash cycle
How to run a wash cycle ?
Before you wash laundry in your washing machine for the first time, we recommend you run a preliminary wash at 95°C, with no laundry but with detergent. This will clean the tub.
Loading washing
• Open the lid of the appliance.
• Open the drum by depressing the locking button A : The two shutters unlock automatically.
• Load the washing, close the drum and the lid of your washing machine.
Important : Before closing the lid of your appliance, ensure that the drum is properly closed :
•When the two shutters are closed,
•Locking button A released.

Proportioning of detergents
Your washing machine has been designed to reduce your water and detergent
consumption. You can therefore reduce the amounts recommended by detergent manufacturers.
Pour the dose of powder detergent into the wash
and prewash
compartments if you have chosen a programme with prewash. Pour fabric softener into the compartment if necessary .
If you use another detergent type, refer to the section “detergents and additives” in the washing guide.
Selecting the programme
Turn the programme dial to the required wash programme, based on the kind
of laundry and how dirty it is (see Programme Table). The indicator for the
button flashes in red.
START/PAUSE
The duration of the selected programme is displayed in the display window.
The STOP
position switches the
washing machine off (it is on in all the

other positions). This programme dial can be turned to the right or to the left.
If the programme dial is turned while the washing machine is on a washing
cycle, the error code “Err” appears in the display window and the START/PAUbutton flashes in yellow for a few seconds. The programme then conSE
tinues without taking any notice of the new position of the dial. To remedy
the problem, put the dial back to its initial position. The breakdown of the cycle phases reappears in the display window.
Selecting the spin speed
Press the T/MIN
button until the indicator for the desired spin speed lights
up. You can also select the NO SPIN*,
* or NIGHT SILENCE
RINSE HOLD

The maximum speed is 1200 rpm for all
the programmes.
At the end of the programme, if you have selected RINSE HOLD
or NIGHT
SILENCE PLUS, you then need to select a SPIN or DRAIN
programme to
finish the cycle.
RINSE HOLD
The last rinse water is not drained at the end of the selected programme to
avoid creasing the washing if it is not taken out of the drum immediately.
Selecting options
Options can be added to a wash programme that has already been selected.
Press the button for the desired option.
The corresponding indicator lights up.
To deactivate an option, do the same

After closing the lid again, press the START/PAUSE
pushbutton.
If you use a liquid detergent for a wash cycle with start delay, use a dosing
ball that you place directly in the drum and select a programme without prewash. If you want to do a pre-wash at the same time as a start delay, please
use a powder detergent.

3.Unplug and close water inlet tap.
4.Check that the drum is in fact empty: if any textiles remain inside, they could
be damaged (shrunk) during the next wash or the colour could run onto other
pieces of laundry.
We recommend leaving the lid and drum open after use to ventilate the water
tank.
Standby mode

Washing guide
Sorting and preparing the washing
• Sort washing by type and care label (refer to International symbols section
below) : normal wash for tough fabrics which can withstand intense
washing and spinning cycles ; delicate wash for delicate fabrics which need
to be treated with care. For mixed loads, loads with items of different types
of material, choose a programme and a temperature suitable for the most
fragile material.
• Wash whites and colours separately : Otherwise, whites will be coloured or
will turn grey.
• New coloured clothes often contain excess dye. It is recommended to wash
such items separately the first time. Follow care instructions “wash separately” and “wash separately several times”.
• Empty pockets and unfold items.
• Remove loose buttons, pins and fasteners. Close zip fasteners, tie ups laces
and straps.
•Turn multilayered fabrics (sleeping bags, anoraks, etc.), coloured headwear,
wool and material with printed designs inside out.
• Wash small fragile items (socks, tights, bras, etc) in a net bag.
• Take special care with curtains. Remove hooks and place net curtains in a
net or bag.
Wash loads depending on type of materials
The amount of washing placed in the drum must not exceed the maximum
capacity of the washing machine. This capacity can vary depending on the
type of materials. Reduce the quantity if washing is heavily soiled or made of
absorbant material.
Not all textiles have the same volume in the drum or the same water absorption levels. In general, the drum must therefore be filled :
• to full capacity but avoiding excessive pressure on cotton, linen and cotton/
linen mixtures,
• to half capacity for processed cottons and synthetic fibres,
• to a third of its capacity for very fragile items such as net curtains and
woollens.
For mixed loads, fill drum depending on most fragile materials.

Washing guide
Detergents and additives
Only use detergents and additives designed for use in a washing machine. Refer to manufacturer’s recommendations and also Dispenser box and Using the
right amount of detergent sections.
We do not recommend mixing different types of detergents. This may spoil
the washing.
The amount of detergent to be used depends on the size of the load, the hardness of the water and how heavily soiled the washing is.
If the water is soft, reduce the amount slightly. If the water contains lime scale (a descaler is recommended) or if the washing is heavily soiled or stained,
increase the amount slightly.
You can obtain information on the hardness level of water in your area by
contacting your water company or other competent source.
There are no restrictions on the use of powder detergents.
Liquid detergents must not be used when a prewash has been selected. For
cycles without prewash, they can be added either via means of a dosing ball,
or in the detergent compartment. In either case, the wash cycle must be started immediately.
Detergent tablets or doses must be placed in the detergent compartment of
your appliance’s dispenser box.
For stain removal before a wash cycle, please refer to manufacturer’s recommended amounts and instructions. If you use a detergent to remove stains,
the wash cycle must be started immediately.
