forward with two persons to let the rest water
flow out completely.
5.Saving tips
The water consumption of your washing machine is
optimized; in some programmes you therefore
cannot see the water through the door glass when
the machine is in operation.
• Achieve the best use of energy, water, detergent
and time by using the recommended maximum
load size.
• Do not exceed the detergent dosages indicated
in the manufacturer’s instructions.
• The Eco-Ball - a special system in the outlet - will
prevent detergent loss from the drum to avoid
detergent loss into the environment.
• Use “Prewash” (if available on your model) for
heavily soiled laundry only! Save detergent, time,
water and energy consumption by not selecting
“Prewash” for slightly to normally soiled laundry.
• Pretreat stains with stain remover or soak driedin stains in water before washing to reduce the
necessity of a hot wash programme.
• Save energy by using a 60° C instead of a 95° C
wash programme or a 40° C instead of a 60° C
wash programme.
• Save energy and time by selecting a high spin
speed to reduce the water content in laundry
before using a tumble dryer.

PREPARATION OF THE WASHING
1.Sort the laundry according to...
Stain removal
• Type of fabric / care label symbol
Cottons, mixed fibres, easy care/synthetics,
wool, handwash items.
• Colour
Separate coloured and white items. Wash new
coloured articles separately.
• Size
Wash items of different sizes in the same load to
improve washing efficiency and distribution in the
drum.
• Delicates
Wash small items (e.g. nylon stockings, belts etc.)
and items with hooks (e.g. bras) in a cloth bag or
pillow case with zip. Always remove curtain rings
or wash curtains with the rings inside a cotton bag.
• Blood, milk, eggs etc. are generally removed by
the automatic enzyme phase of the programme.
• To remove red wine, coffee, tea, grass and fruit
stains etc. add a stain remover to the main wash
chamber
of the detergent dispenser.
• Pre-treat heavily-soiled areas with stain remover
if necessary.
2.Empty all pockets
Coins, safety pins etc. can damage your laundry
as well as the appliance drum and tub.
3.Fasteners
Close zips and fasten buttons or hooks; loose
belts or ribbons should be tied together.
Dyeing and bleaching
• Only use dyes and bleaches that are suitable for
washing machines.
• Follow the Manufacturer’s instructions.
• Plastic and rubber parts of the washing machine
can be stained by dyes or bleaches.
Loading the laundry
1. Open the door.
2. Load the articles one at a time loosely into the
drum, without overfilling. Observe the load sizes
given in the programme chart.
Note: overloading the machine will result in
unsatisfactory washing results and creased laundry.
3. Close the door.
DETERGENTS AND ADDITIVES
Keep detergents and additives in a safe,
dry place out of the reach of children!
The choice of detergent depends on:
• Type of fabric (cottons, easy care/synthetics,
delicate items, wool).
Note: Use only specific detergents for washing
wool and garments made of microfibres (like
sports or swimwear).
• Colour.
• The wash temperature.
• Degree and type of soiling.
Remarks:
• Any whitish residues on dark fabrics are caused
by insoluble compounds used in phosphate-free
powder detergents. If this occurs, shake or brush
out the fabric or use liquid detergents.
• Use only detergents and additives specifically
produced for domestic washing machines.
• When using descaling agents, dyes or bleaches
for the prewash (if available on your model),
make sure that they are suitable for use in
domestic washing machines. Descalers could
contain products which could damage your
washing machine.
• Do not use any solvents (e.g. turpentine,
benzine). Do not machine wash fabrics that have
been treated with solvents or flammable liquids.
• Do not use liquid detergent for the main wash
when having activated the “prewash” option (if
available on your model).
• Do not use liquid detergent when activating the
“Start Delay” function.
Dosage
Follow the dosage recommendations on the
detergent pack. They depend on:
• degree and type of soiling
• size of wash
- full load: follow the detergent manufacturer’s
instructions.
- half load: 3/4 the amount used for a full load.
- minimum load (about 1 kg): 1/2 the amount
used for a full load.
If there is no reference to a certain wash load on
the detergent pack: the detergent manufacturers
usually refer their dosing recommendations to
4.5 kg laundry for heavy duty detergent and
2.5 kg laundry for delicate detergent.
• water hardness in your area (ask for information
from your water company). Soft water requires
less detergent than hard water.
Notes:
Too much detergent can result in excess foam
formation, which reduces washing efficiency.
If the washing machine detects too much foam, it
may prevent spinning, or prolong the programme
duration and increase the water consumption (see
also remarks on foam formation in the
“Troubleshooting Guide”).
Insufficient detergent may result in grey laundry and
also calcifies the heating system, drum and hoses.

washing machine’s base (picture “B”).
5. Hold the emergency hose’s end into the container and
remove the stopper (picture “C”).
6. Wait until all the water has drained, then refix the stopper
at the hose’s end (picture “D”).
7. Push the hose back into the washing machine’s base.
8. Lay an absorbable cotton cloth (e.g. a towel) on the
floor in front of the filter.
9. Slowly open the filter by turning it counter-clockwise
(picture “E”); wait until all the water has drained, then
unscrew the filter completely and remove it.
10. Tilt the appliance forwards carefully (a second person
must help you) to allow the water to flow out completely.
11. Clean the filter and the filter chamber; check that the
pump rotor in the filter chamber moves freely.
12. Reinsert the filter and screw it in clockwise as far as it
will go.
13. Pour about 1 litre of water into the detergent
dispenser to reactivate the “Eco system”. Check that
the filter is inserted properly and securely and no
water comes out.
14. Reinstall the plinth (picture “F”); if necessary, tilt the
washing machine slightly backwards for doing that (a
second person must help you).
15. Plug in the washing machine.
The washing machine is now ready for operation again.
If your washing machine has no emergency hose:

TROUBLESHOOTING GUIDE
Your washing machine is equipped with various automatic safety functions. These enable faults to be
detected in good time and the safety system can react appropriately. These faults are frequently so minor
that they can be removed within a few minutes.
Problem
Causes, Solutions, Tips
• Plug is not properly inserted in socket.
• Socket or fuse does not function correctly (use a table lamp or similar appliance to test it).
• the “On/Off” button has not been pressed (if available on your model).
Appliance does not start
• Door is not properly closed (see also “Child Safety”).
(if available on
although “Start (Pause)” has • The “Child lock/Lock buttons” feature has been activated
your model). To unlock the buttons, push the two buttons marked with the key
been pressed
symbol simultaneously and hold them at least for 3 seconds. The key symbol on the
display disappears and the programme can be started.
Appliance does not start, no
indicator lamps are on
Appliance stops during the
programme, and the “Start
(Pause)” light blinks
Detergent dispenser
contains residues from
detergent and/or additives
• “Rinse hold” position of the “Variable spin” button is activated, and the “Rinse hold”
symbol
lights up in the programme sequence indicator. Press the “Start
(Pause)” button to start the drain programme.
• Programme has been changed - reselect desired programme and press “Start (Pause)”.
• Programme has been interrupted and eventually door has been opened - close
door and restart programme by pressing “Start (Pause)”.
• The appliance’s safety system has been activated (see “Description of red
indications” in your programme chart).
• Water tap is not opened or water inlet hose is kinked or blocked (“Water tap
closed” indication lights up).
• Separator in main wash chamber is not correctly installed or not adapted to use of
powder and liquid detergent (see “Detergents And Additives”).
• Water entering is not enough; the mesh filters of the water supply could be blocked
(see “Care And Maintenance”).
Appliance vibrates during
spin cycle
• Transport bolts have not been removed; before using the washing machine, it
is imperative that the transport bolts are removed.
• Appliance is not level / not standing firmly on all four feet (see separate “Installation Guide”).
Final spin results are poor
The appliance has an imbalance detection and correction system. If individual heavy items
are loaded (e.g. bathrobes), this system may reduce the spin speed automatically or even
interrupt the spin completely in order to protect the washing machine.
• Heavy item(s) prevented spinning; add smaller articles of laundry and repeat spin cycle.
• Excessive foam formation prevented spinning; select and start “Rinse & Spin”
programme. Avoid excessive detergent dosing (see “Detergents And Additives”).
• “Variable spin” button has been set to a low spin speed.
The washing machine is at a
standstill for several minutes
in the middle of a running
programme; the wash
programme seems not to
proceed
Normal function of the washing machine used for optimizing the rinse phase. One
reason for such a pause can be that you might have used too much detergent; the
washing machine automatically interrupts the programme to have the foam reduced.
This standstill may be repeated several times until the foam reduction is sufficient to
continue the wash cycle. If the foam persists, the red “Service” indicator will light up
and the display shows “F18” or “Fod” - refer to the instructions concerning the
“Service” indication on the next pages in this case.
Detergent residues on
laundry after wash
Whitish residues on dark fabrics are caused by insoluble compounds used in
phosphate-free powder detergents.
- avoid overdosing of detergent
- use liquid detergent
- select “Intensive Rinse” option if possible
- brush out the fabric
Programme time initially
displayed is lengthened /
shortened by a period of time
Normal function of the washing machine to adapt to factors that can have an effect on the
wash programme time, e.g.: Excess of foam formation, load imbalance due to heavy
items of laundry, prolonged heating time resulting from low inlet water temperature.
Due to such influences, the programme time is recalculated and updated if
necessary. On the display, an animation appears during such update periods.

ACCESSORIES
For some models, you can obtain via our AfterSales Service or your specialist dealer:
• a Pedestal Drawer which can be installed
beneath your washing machine. It raises your
machine to allow for more comfortable loading
and unloading, as you now no longer need to
bend as far to access the door. Furthermore, it
offers a great space-management tool and
storage solution.
• a Stacking Kit Shelf, by which your dryer can
be fixed on top of your washing machine to save
space and to facilitate loading and unloading your
dryer in that high position.
