Foam sensing
2.1.1
Foam when heating during the main wash cycle
Heating the suds generates foam, and as foam pushes into the vents, the
pressure increases in the suds container.
If the analog pressure sensor registers a pressure increase of 60 mm wc above
wash level during heating, then
– the heater is switched off for 2 minutes. It will only be switched on again when
the pressure increase drops to 15 mm wc above wash level; no fault
message for target temperature not reached is issued,
– if foam sensing occurs three times, the fault message “Check dosage” is
issued at program end,
– if foam sensing occurs three times, the fault message “F 16 excess foam
dosage” is saved, refer to F 16 Oversudsing, 070 3.17.
2.1.2
Foam at rinse cycle water intake (in the drum vent or in the siphon)
If foam is generated during rinsing, the pressure in the suds container rises faster
than it would based on the water intake.
If the analog pressure sensor registers a pressure increase of more than 40 mm
wc within 4 s during water intake, then
– the water intake is interrupted for at least 15 seconds,
– the water intake will only continue when the pressure increase drops to 15
mm wc,
– the fault message “Check dosage” is issued at program end,
– the fault message “F 16 excess foam dosage” is saved, refer to F 16
Oversudsing, 070 3.17.
2.1.3
Foam during spin cycle (water sheet)
The spin cycle generates foam, and a water sheet is formed. The pressure
increases, and the water sheet acts as a brake on the drum.
If the pressure sensor registers a higher pressure than standard for a spin speed
during a spin cycle, or if the target/actual speed difference is higher than
expected, then
– the RPMs are reduced, or the spin cycle is stopped,
– an additional rinse cycle is carried out if the spin cycle did not go for at least
60 seconds at 700 RPM.

Float switch (B8)
A float switch (B8) is located in the sump of the appliance housing.
If water leaks into the sump, float switch (B8) is activated.
The program and with it the water intake are stopped, and the fault message
Waterproof is issued.
2.2
Hot water intake control
The hot water intake starts from a temperature selection of
– USA: ≥ 86°F (30°C),
– Europe: > 95°F (35°C),
in all wash programs except woolens, silk and hand wash.
2.3
Automatic load control / Intelligent water intake (IWE)
Automatic load control matches the incoming water amount to the amount of
laundry.
Automatic load control is the outcome of intelligent water intake (IWE). An analog
pressure sensor monitors the water intake. The control measures the absorbency
rate of the laundry after the first and second water intake, the pressure drop rates,
the spin speed variance and the water amount taken in.
Based on this input, the laundry load and type of laundry are calculated.
Depending on program, the following parameters are adjusted:
– Water level,
– Wash duration (incl. correction of residual time),
– Number of additional heating cycles,
– Number of rinses,
– Water level in the rinse cycles,
– Rinse duration,
– Final spin speed.

Water intake monitoring – water control system (WCS)
Water intake monitoring will register a shut off faucet, too low water pressure, or a
seal problem, such as a missing lint filter.
If a fault occurs, the program is stopped and the fault message water intake fault
is displayed.
A water intake fault is issued under the following conditions,
– if after 5 seconds water intake the flow meter (B3/4) does not register a
signal,
– if after 150 seconds water intake the analog pressure sensor (ADS) does
not register an increase of at least 8 mm wc,
– if the flow meter (B3/4) registers 15 liter water intake and the water pressure
as measured by the analog pressure sensor (ADS) did not increase to at
least 20 mm wc.
Or if the water volume in one block rises above a critical threshold.
Hot water only: When the program option hot water intake is selected, the fault
is not saved and the program which is running is continued with cold water.
2.5
Water overflow monitoring
If the overflow level of 10” wc is reached, the drain pump (M8) runs until the level
drops by 3” down to 7” wc.
2.6
Flow meter (B3/4)
The flow meter (B3/4) is integrated into the water path control unit.
The flow meter (B3/4) generates impulses depending on the water flow.
Based on these impulses, the electronic calculates the amount of water that has
run into the suds container.
Advantages:
– The flow meter registers the amounts of water flowing in more accurately,
compared to previous systems without this sensor.
The analog pressure sensor (ADS) monitors the function of the flow meter.
During a malfunction or total failure of the flow meter, the water intake is controlled
via level-controlled fill.

Spin lock
Prior to the first commissioning, a lock is placed on the spin cycle.
This is to prevent that the appliance is damaged or people are endangered, if for
example the spin cycle is accidentally activated while the appliance is on display,
with the struts mounted, or with an accessories kit stored in the drum.
The spin lock is in effect until the first water intake of 35 mm wc.

Danger!
Voltage present when working on the frequency converter drive (ELP).
A capacitor on the frequency converter maintains voltage of up to approx. 400 V,
even after the appliance is disconnected from power.
After the appliance is disconnected from power, an electrical resistor discharges
the capacitor within approx. 2 minutes.
Before starting work on the electronic of the frequency converter drive (ELP),
make sure that the capacitor has been safely discharged.
