Information concerning waste disposal
Disposing of the
packaging
The shipping package has protected your new
appliance on its way to your home. All utilised materials
are ecologically harmless and recyclable. Please
contribute to a better environment by disposing of
packaging materials in an environmentally conscious
manner.
Please ask your dealer or inquire at your local authority
about current means of disposal.
m
Risk of choking!
Do not let children play with packaging and associated
parts. Risk of choking on plastic film and collapsible
boxes.
Disposing of your old
appliance
Old appliances are not worthless rubbish!
Environment-conscious recycling can reclaim
valuable raw materials.
m
Danger of death!
Unplug mains plug on redundant appliances. Cut off
mains cable and discard with mains plug.
Destroy the lock on the door. To prevent playing
children from becoming trapped and endangered,
ensure that the door locking mechanism is disabled.
Packaging and old
applicances
Unpack the appliance and dispose of the packaging in
an environmentally-responsible manner.
This appliance is labelled in accordance with European
Directive 2002/96/EC concerning used electrical and
electronic appliances (waste electrical and electronic
equipment - WEEE).
)

The guideline determines the framework for the return
and recycling of used appliances as applicable
throughout the EU.
Protection of the environment / hints and
tips
Your washer-dryer uses water, energy and detergent
efficiently, thereby protecting the environment and
reducing your household costs. For consumption
values of your appliance see page 51.
Hints and tips
Using your washer-dryer in an efficient and
environmentally friendly manner:
■
■
■
■
■
5
With smaller amounts of laundry, the load adjust
reduces the water and energy consumption.
Select the Cottons Eco 0 60°C with Wash Plus È
programme instead of Cottons ic 90°C. The
longer washing time in this 60°C programme
means that the cleaning effects are comparable
with those of a 90°C programme, although the
power consumption is considerably lower.
Do not use prewash for lightly to normally soiled
washing.
Add detergent according to the degree of soiling,
amount of laundry and water hardness, and
observe the detergent manufacturer's instructions.
If washing is then to be dried in the appliance,
select the higher spin speed - because the more
water that is spun out of the appliance, the less
time and energy is required to dry it, and get a
good drying performance. In case of cotton,
≥1000rpm spin speed is recommended; in case of
easycare, 800rpm spin speed is recommended.
General safety instructions
Your washer-dryer is intended for
– use in the household only,
– for washing machine-washable fabrics in washing
lye,
– operation with cold drinking water and
commercially available detergents and cleaning
products which are suitable for use in washing
machines.
Do not leave children unsupervised near the
washer-dryer.
Keep pets away from the washer-dryer.
Do not insert/pull out the mains plug with wet hands.
Do not pull out the mains plug by tugging the cable.
Do not touch the loading door when washing/drying at
high temperatures.
Caution when draining hot water.
Do not climb onto the washer-dryer.
Do not lean on the open washer-dryer door.
Due to the use of the condensation principle in drying,
please keep the connected water tap open during the
drying process, otherwise the drying programme
cannot start, please see page 47 "Help with minor
problems".

* Overdosage
The automatic safety system detects excessive froth in
the appliance due to a highly frothing detergent or an
overdosage. This is indicated in the display field by the
* symbol. Dispense less detergent for the next wash
with similar items of washing (same degree of soiling
and wash load).
Overdosage of detergent may cause excessive froth
formation and impair the washing and rinsing results.
A rinse cycle is automatically run.
² The * symbol goes out when the appliance
switches off at the end of the programme or if
the programme is changed.
@ Childproof lock
The activated childproof lock prevents the selected
programme from being changed while the programme
is running.

selected programme and additional functions. You can
change this speed, see page 31.
Washing temperature
The default washing temperature is displayed after
selecting the programme and it can be changed by
touching the °C button, see page 31.
Programme duration
When the programme has been selected, the expected
programme duration (time after which the programme
is expected to end) is displayed.
The programme duration is displayed in hours and
minutes, e.g.
1:30 = 1 hour and 30 minutes
0:35 = 35 minutes.
When the programme has started, the programme
duration counts down in minutes.
10
When the programme ends, the displays shows -0-.
² While the programme is running, the programme
duration may be extended or reduced for the
following reasons.
Reductions in time occur because of:
– small loads,
– reduced heating times, e.g. if the water is very hot,
– reduced washing temperature after the programme
has started,
– the laundry for drying with low residual moisture.
Increases in time occur because of:
– additional rinse cycle if excessive foam is in the
laundry,
– multiple spinning if the laundry is distributed poorly
in the drum,
– increased heating times, e.g. when the water is too
cold,
– water pressure too low,
– selection of an additional option, e.g. Rinse Plus
O and/or Wash Plus È after the programme has
started,
– very absorbent washing extends the heating
duration,
– the laundry for drying is wet.
Finish in time
You can select the finish in time, see page 32.
Drying duration or
automatic drying
You can set the drying duration or automatic drying by
touching the Š Dry button, see page 28. When the
washing and drying without a break was selected, time
drying or auto drying duration will add in programme
duration automatically. Related programmes will
prolong 5-15 minutes for good washing performance.

Loose debris (e.g. coins, paper clips, needles, nails)
can damage items of clothing as well as parts of the
washer-dryer (e.g. drum).
■
Empty all pockets on items of clothing.
■
Brush sand out of pockets and cuffs/turn-ups.
■
Close zips, fasten pillow cases/cushion covers.
■
Remove curtain runners or tie up in a net/bag.
■
Wash in a net/cushion cover:
– delicates, e.jg. tights, curtains,
– small laundry items, e.jg. socks, handkerchiefs,
– underwired bras (underwire may become
detached during washing and cause damage).
■
Preparing laundry for
drying
■
■
■
■
■
13
Trousers, knitwear and knitted textiles, e.g. jersey
garments, T-shirts or sweatshirts should be turned
inside out.
Only tumble-dry textiles which have been washed,
rinsed and spun.
Remove as much water as possible from the
laundry. Do not press the button for reducing the
spin speed.
Before tumble-drying, easy-care items should also
be spun using the appropriate spin programme
(see programme table).
In order to ensure uniform drying, sort the items
according to fabric type and degree of drying
required.
Easy-care items should if possible be removed
from the machine while still slightly damp and
allowed to continue drying in the open air.
Overdrying may cause excessive creasing.
■
Sorting the laundry
Items which require ironing do not have to be
ironed immediately after being tumble-dried. It is a
good idea to fold or roll them together for a while,
so that any remaining moisture is evenly
distributed.
Caution
Washing may become discoloured. Do not wash new
coloured washing with other washing.
According to colour and
degree of dirt
White items may become grey. Wash white and
coloured items separately.
Degrees of dirt

Do not wash laundry items which bear the following
care label in the washer-dryer:
B= do not wash
16
Only dry laundry that is labelled with the following
care symbols:
a= tumble-dry at normal heat setting (Normal drying)
`= tumble-dry at low heating setting (Delicate drying)
² The following textiles should not be tumble-dried:
– Laundry marked with the care symbol b= do not
tumble-dry
– Wollens or items containing wool
– Risk of shrinking!
– Delicate fabric (silk, synthetic net curtains)
– Risk of creasing!
– Items containing foam rubber or similar material.
– Items which have been treated with inflammable
solvents, such as stain removes, petrol, paint
thinners. Explosion hazard!
– -Items still containing hair lacquer or similar
substances. Dangerous vapors!
– Dripping-wet laundry. Waste of energy!
17
Loading the laundry
m
Risk of explosion!
Items of clothing that have been pretreated with
solvent-based cleaning agents, e.g. stain remover and
dry cleaning spirit, represent an explosion hazard once
loaded into the washer-dryer. Before loading the
laundry, rinse thoroughly by hand.
Caution
Foreign objects in the drum may damage the laundry.
Before loading the laundry, check that there is no
debris in the drum.
■
■
Open the washer-dryer door.
Unfold the sorted items of clothing and place them
loosely into the drum. Mix large and small items.

creasing.
■
clack
18
Close the washer-dryer door.
Take care not to trap any items of clothing between
the loading door and rubber seal.
Detergents and cleaning products
Dosing detergent
m
Risk of poisoning!
Keep detergents and additives out of the reach of
children.
Dose detergent according to
– the water hardness. You can find out the water
hardness from your water utility company.
– the amount of laundry.
– the degree of soiling. Information on soiling can be
found on page 14.
– the specifications of the detergent manufacturer.
The correct dosage reduces the impact on the
environment and produces a good washing result.
Pour liquid detergent into the corresponding
dispenser.
Too little detergent:
– The laundry is not washed clean and eventually
becomes grey and hard.
– Greyish-brown dots (grease spots) may stain the
laundry.
– The heating elements are calcifying.
Too much detergent:
– The environment is loaded.
– Excessive froth may be generated during the
wash cycle causing a reduction in the washing
mechanism. This may be the cause of poor
washing and rinsing results.
