Anti-stain system
General information about stains
A total of 16 different stains can be selected. The washing
machine adjusts the washing temperature, drum movement and
soaking time specific to the type of stain. Hot or cold water, gentle
or intensive washing control and long or short soaking provide
the wash programme with a special sequence for each type of
stain. The result: stains are treated optimally.
The treatment of two stains explained in the following
example
ë blood
í egg
Blood is first “dissolved” in cold water, then the selected wash
programme starts.
Egg particles are removed by soaking in the lukewarm water
bath, selecting a wash cycle with a high water level and running
additional rinse cycles.
For the other stains we have developed comparable solutions in
intensive studies.

Sensors – Your washing machine is so
intelligent
Load adjust
Depending on the type of textile and load, the load adjust
optimally adjusts the water consumption in each programme.
Aqua-Sensor depending on model
During the rinse cycle the Aqua sensor checks the degree
of turbidity (turbidity is caused by dirt and detergent residue)
of the rinsing water. The duration and the number of rinse cycles
depend on the turbidity of the water.
Load sensor/Load display
²
The load sensor detects the load level in the washing machine
when the door is open. This is indicated by a progressing bar on
the display panel.
To ensure that the load sensor measures all the laundry, the drum
must be empty before the washing machine is switched on.
Dosing recommendation
²
The dosing recommendation indicates a recommended
detergent dosage as a %, depending on the selected programme
and the detected load. The indicated % refers to the
recommendation of the detergent manufacturer.
By observing the recommended dosage, you will protect the
environment and reduce your household costs.
Unbalanced load detection system
²
34
The automatic unbalanced load detection system spins the
laundry several times to ensure even distribution.
For reasons of safety the speed is reduced or does not perform
a spin cycle if the washing is very unevenly distributed.
Distribute small and large items of washing in the drum. Faults,
