Caring for the environment
Disposal of the packing material
Disposal of your old machine
The packaging is designed to protect
the washing machine from damage
during transportation. The packaging
materials used are selected from
materials which are environmentally
friendly for disposal and should be
recycled.
Electrical and electronic machines
often contain valuable materials. They
also contain materials which, if handled
or disposed of incorrectly, could be
potentially hazardous to human health
and to the environment. They are,
however, essential for the correct
functioning of your machine. Please do
not therefore dispose of it with your
household waste.
Recycling the packaging reduces the
use of raw materials in the
manufacturing process and also
reduces the amount of waste in landfill
sites. Ensure that any plastic
wrappings, bags etc. are disposed of
safely and kept out of the reach of
babies and young children. Danger of
suffocation.
Please dispose of it at your local
community waste collection / recycling
centre or contact your Dealer for
advice.
Ensure that it presents no danger to
children while being stored for
disposal.

7
Warning and Safety instructions
Technical safety
~ Before setting up the washer-dryer, check it for any externally
visible damage.
Do not install or use a damaged machine.
~ Before connecting the washer-dryer, ensure that the connection
data on the data plate (fuse rating, voltage and frequency) match
the mains electricity supply. If in any doubt, consult a qualified
electrician.
~ The electrical safety of this washer-dryer can only be guaranteed
when correctly earthed. It is essential that this standard safety
requirement is met. If in any doubt, please have the household
wiring system tested by a qualified electrician. Miele cannot be held
liable for the consequences of an inadequate earthing system (e.g.
electric shock).
~ Do not connect the washer-dryer to the mains electricity supply
by an extension lead. Fire hazard due to the danger of overheating.
~ Unauthorised repairs could result in unforeseen dangers for the
user, for which the manufacturer cannot accept liability. Repairs
should only be undertaken by a Miele approved service technician,
otherwise any subsequent damage will not be covered by the
guarantee.
~ Please observe the instructions in "Installation and connection"
and "Technical data".
~ The electrical socket must be easily accessible after installation in
order to disconnect the washer-dryer from the electricity supply.
8
Warning and Safety instructions
~ The washer-dryer must be isolated from the electricity supply
when cleaning and maintaining the machine and in the event of a
fault.
~ The Miele "Water protection system" protects from water damage
provided the following conditions have been met:
– the washer-dryer is correctly plumbed in and connected to the
electricity supply;
– if a fault or damage has been identified, the washer-dryer must be
examined by a competent person before further use, and repaired
if necessary.
~ The flow pressure must be at least 100 kPa. It must not exceed
1000 kPa.
~ Faulty components must only be replaced by genuine Miele
original spare parts. Only when these parts are fitted can Miele
guarantee safety standards of the machine.
~ If the electrical connection cable is faulty it must only be replaced
by a Miele approved service technician to protect the user from
danger.
~ The washer-dryer must not be used in a non-stationary location
(e.g. on a ship).
~ Do not make any alterations to the washer-dryer, unless
authorised to do so by Miele.
~ In areas which may be subject to infestation by cockroaches or
other vermin, pay particular attention to keeping the washer-dryer
and its surroundings in a clean condition at all times. Any damage
which may be caused by cockroaches or other vermin will not be
covered by the guarantee.

Warning and Safety instructions
Correct use
~ Do not install your washer-dryer in rooms where there is a risk of
frost. Frozen hoses may burst or split. The reliability of the electronic
control unit may be impaired at temperatures below freezing point.
~ Before using the washer-dryer for the first time, check that the
transit bars at the rear of the machine have been removed (see
"Installation and connection - Removing the transit bars"). During
spinning, a transit fitting which is still in place may result in damage
to both the washer-dryer and adjacent furniture or appliances.
~ Turn off the stopcock if the washer-dryer is to be left for any
length of time (e.g. holiday), especially if there is no floor drain
(gully) in the immediate vicinity.
~ Flooding danger. If hooking the drain hose into a wash basin,
check that the water can drain off quickly enough to prevent the sink
from overflowing. Make sure that the drain hose is secure, so that
the force of the water flowing out of the hose does not dislodge it.
~ Take care to ensure that foreign objects (e.g. nails, pins, coins,
paper clips) do not find their way into the washer-dryer with the
laundry. These may damage components of the machine (e.g. suds
container, drum), which in turn can result in damage to the laundry.
~ If the correct amount of detergent is dispensed, the washer-dryer
should not need to be descaled. If, however, you do wish to descale
the machine only use proprietary non-corrosive descaling agents
and strictly observe the instructions on the packaging. A special
descaling agent is available to order from Miele. Follow the
instructions for use on the packaging carefully.
10
Warning and Safety instructions
~ To prevent the risk of fire, the following must not be dried in this
washer-dryer:
– items which have not been washed.
– items, such as workwear, which have not been thoroughly
cleaned and which are still soiled with grease, oil or other
deposits (such as cosmetics, lotions etc).
If items have not been thoroughly cleaned there is a danger that
these might self-ignite when heated, even after they have been
removed from the washer-dryer at the end of the programme.
– items (e.g. mops and floor cloths) which have been treated with
inflammable cleaning agents or which contain residues of
acetone, alcohol, benzine, petrol, stain remover, turpentine, wax
and wax remover or other chemicals.
– items which have been splashed with hair lacquer, hair spray, nail
varnish remover or similar substances.
When washing such heavily soiled items, ensure that you use
sufficient detergent and select a high temperature. If in doubt,
wash the items several times.
~ To prevent the risk of fire, the following must not be tumble dried:
– items which have been cleaned using chemicals (e.g.
professional dry-cleaning agents).
– items which contain a large proportion of rubber, foam rubber or
rubber-like materials. For example, products made from latex
foam rubber, shower caps, waterproof textiles, rubberised articles
and items of clothing and pillows with foam rubber filling.
– damaged items which contain padding or fillings (e.g. pillows,
jackets). When damaged, the filling can get out with the risk of
igniting in the washer-dryer.
11
Warning and Safety instructions
~ In many programmes, the heating phase is followed by a cooling
down phase to ensure that the items are not too hot to handle when
you remove them (this also avoids the danger of the laundry
self-igniting). The programme is not finished until the cooling down
phase has been completed.
As soon as the programme has finished, remove all laundry from the
drum.
~ Warning: Do not switch the washer-dryer off before the drying
programme has finished. If this is done, the laundry must be hung
up or spread out to cool it down.
~ Fabric conditioner and similar products must be used according
to the instructions on the manufacturer's packaging.
~ Only use dyes specified by the manufacturer as being suitable for
use in a domestic washer-dryer. Always observe the manufacturer's
instructions carefully.
~ Colour run and dye removers contain sulphur compounds which
can cause damage such as corrosion. Do not use these products in
this washer-dryer.
~ Make sure that any dispensing balls etc. are removed from
laundry before the drying programme. These dispensers can melt
during the drying programme and cause damage to the
washer-dryer and the laundry. Do not use liquid dispenser balls or

Warning and Safety instructions
~ Do not use solvent based cleaning agents, e.g. those containing
benzine, in this washer-dryer, as this may result in damage to
component parts and create toxic fumes. Such agents also pose a
fire and explosion hazard.
~ Caution, the metal cap is hot after drying. Open the door wide
after the drying cycle. Do not touch the metal cap located on the
inside of the door glass. It will still be hot and could cause a burn.
~ The maximum load of dry laundry for this machine is 6.0 kg for
washing and 3.0 for drying. See the "Programme chart" for the
maximum recommended loads in individual programmes.
Accessories
~ Accessory parts may only be fitted when expressly approved by
Miele. If other parts are used, guarantee, performance and product
liability claims will be invalidated.
~ If installing the machine on a Miele plinth, (available as an
optional accessory, depending on country), please make sure you
order the right one for this washer-dryer.
Miele cannot be held liable for damage caused by
non-compliance with these Warning and Safety instructions.

Before using for the first time
Setting the language
Before using the machine for the
first time ensure that it is correctly
installed and connected. Also check
that the drain filter is securely
tightened to prevent the risk of water
leakage during use. See "Installation
and connection".
This washer-dryer has undergone a
complete functional test at the factory
and there will be some residual water
in the drum from this process.
The washer-dryer has a sensor which
measures the amount of laundry in the
drum. This determines the amount of
detergent required. To allow the load
size indicator to function correctly, you
must first run a wash programme
without any laundry and without
detergent.
^ Open the stopcock.
^ Press the K button.
If the machine is being switched on for
the first time, the Miele Willkommen

Washing and drying environmentally and economically
Energy and water consumption
Detergent
– Water consumption and energy
usage are determined by the size of
the load.
To make the most out of your
machine, load the maximum amount
for the programme you are using.
– Do not exceed the amounts of
detergent recommended by the
manufacturer on the packaging.
– Use the Automatic plus and Express
20 programmes for small loads.
– When smaller amounts of laundry are
washed using the Cottons
programmes, the automatic load
recognition system will reduce the
amount of water, time and energy
used. This may mean that the time
left shown in the display is adjusted
during the course of the wash
programme.
– Using the Cottons 60°C programme
instead of the Cottons 95°C
programme will give energy savings
of between 35% and 45%. This is
sufficient for most levels of soiling.
For stubborn or old soiling use the
Soak extra option.
– To maintain the hygiene of the
washer-dryer, carry out a hot wash
(60°C or above) using powder
detergent at regular intervals. The
Hygiene Info message will appear in
the display to remind you to carry out
a hot wash.
18
– Reduce the amount of detergent for
smaller loads. Use the Load % /
Detergent % button.
Choosing the correct extra option
(Pre-wash, Soak, Short)
Select:
– A wash programme together with the
Short extra option for light to normal
soiling where there are no obvious
marks.
– A wash programme without any extra
options for normal to heavy soiling.
– A wash programme together with the
Soak extra option for very heavily
soiled laundry.
– The Pre-wash extra option for laundry
with large amounts of dirt (e.g. dust,
sand).
When drying straight after washing
Select a high spin speed for the wash
programme, as well as for the
Thermospin to save time and energy.

General tips
– Curtains: Remove lead weights first
or place in a laundry bag.
^ Empty all pockets.
,Foreign objects (e.g. nails,
coins, paper clips, etc.) can cause
damage to textiles and to
components in the machine.
– Underwiring and collar stiffeners:
Any loose wiring in bras, shirt collar
stiffeners, etc. should be removed or
sewn in.
– Close any zips, fasten hooks and
eyes etc before washing.
^ Badly soiled areas, stains etc. should
be cleaned as soon as possible,
preferably whilst still fresh. Spillages
should be carefully dabbed off using
a soft, colourfast cloth. Do not rub!
– Wash light and dark coloured items
separately.
Badly soiled areas can be pre-treated
with liquid detergent, stain removers
etc. first, following the manufacturer's
instructions. You can also use the
"Stains" extra option. With particularly
stubborn stains ask your dry cleaner for
advice.
Do not wash items in this machine
which are specified by the
manufacturer as not washable on the
care label.
– Fasten duvet covers, pillow cases
etc. to prevent small items from
being rolled up inside them.

< 25%
The display shows the amount of
laundry loaded in the drum as a % (in
25% steps) of the maximum load
permissible for the programme
selected.
^ Unfold the laundry and load loosely
into the drum. Mixing both large and
small items gives better wash results
and also helps distribute the load
evenly during spinning.
The most efficient use of energy and
water is achieved when a full load is
washed. However, do not overload as
this causes creases and reduces
cleaning efficiency.
Make sure that no items are caught
between the drum door and seal.
^ Shut the door with a gentle swing.

Too little detergent results in:
– Laundry not getting properly clean
and with time it may become grey
and hard to the touch.
– Greasy particles clinging to laundry.
– Limescale deposits on the heater
elements.
Too much detergent results in:
– Excessive foam which causes a low
level of agitation and poor wash,
rinse and spin results.
– High water consumption (an
additional rinse cycle will
automatically switch in).
22

1)
Use liquid detergent.
2)
Only use proofing agents which are stated by the manufacturer as being
suitable for use on membrane textiles. Do not use proofing agents which contain
paraffin. Add proofing agents to the fabric conditioner compartment §.
3)
Use powder detergent
Specialist detergent: This detergent is designed specifically for the wash
programme or type of fabric, (see the Miele CareCollection detergents and
conditioning products in "Optional accessories").
33
WASHING
All modern detergents produced for
automatic washing machines are
suitable. Use dispensing aids, e.g.
balls, if these are supplied with the
detergent. Tablets are suitable for full
loads, but note that it may be
impractical to reduce tablets for smaller
loads. Some tablets do not dissolve as
rapidly as others, and may not be
suitable for programmes with short
durations. Do not use biological
detergents on silk, as the enzymes may
damage the silk. Instructions for use
and recommended dosage amounts
are given on the detergent packaging.
Liquid detergent should be dispensed
using a ball provided by the
manufacturer for programmes without a
pre-wash.
For programmes with a pre-wash you
will need to purchase a special
container from the Miele Spare Parts
department which sits in the main wash
compartment j of the detergent
dispenser drawer. Add liquid detergent
to this container for the main wash and
to compartment i for the pre-wash.
See "Optional accessories" at the end
of this booklet for details of Miele
branded care products, including
detergents and fabric conditioner.
The right amount to dispense will
depend on the following:
– The soiling level of the laundry
Lightly soiled
No visible dirt or stains. Possibly
slight body odour.
Normally soiled
Visibly dirty and/or just a few slight
stains.
34
Heavily soiled
Visible dirt and stains and/or dried on
soiling.
– The quantity of the laundry (add the
recommended amount of detergent).
– The water hardness level.
Check with your local water supplier
if you do not know the hardness level
in your area.
Water softeners
A water softener can be used to cut
down on the use of detergents in hard
water areas. Dispense according to the
amount specified on the packaging.
First add detergent and then the water
softener.
Use the same quantity of detergent as
for soft water.
Washing with several components
If you wash using several components
(e.g. special application detergents),
we recommend always dispensing the
agents into compartment j in the
following order:
1. Detergent
2. Water softeners
3. Stain remover
This way the agents are distributed
more evenly.
WASHING
Fabric conditioner and liquid starch
Fabric conditioners make garments soft
to handle and help prevent static cling
when tumble drying.
Starch stiffens and gives body to items
of laundry, e.g. shirts, tablecloths and
bed linen.
Automatic dispensing of fabric
conditioner or liquid starch to
laundry at the end of a programme
Do not use powder starch
formulations or viscous liquid starch
in the § compartment as it will clog
up. See below.
Adding fabric conditioner or liquid
starch separately
^ Dispense in accordance with
manufacturer's instructions on the
packaging.
^ Dispense liquids into the §
compartment and powder or viscous
formulations into the i
compartment.
^ Turn the programme selector to
Further programmes/Settings and
select the Starch programme.
^ Select a spin speed or the Rinse hold
extra option.
^ Press the Start/Stop button.
^ Add the fabric conditioner or liquid
starch to compartment §. Do not
exceed the maximum level mark.
It will be dispensed automatically in the
last rinse. At the end of the programme
a small amount of water remains in the
fabric conditioner compartment §.
If starching frequently, thoroughly
clean the dispenser compartment,
especially the siphon tube and
fabric conditioner channel, regularly.
See "Cleaning the detergent
dispenser drawer".
Colour run and dye removers/dyes
^ Do not use colour run or dye
removers in this machine.
^ Dyes suitable for use in domestic
washing machines can be used.
However, please note that the salt
used in the dyeing process can
cause corrosion to stainless steel
components in the machine if you
dye frequently. Follow the
manufacturer's instructions carefully.
35
DRYING
Separate drying
The separate drying programme
must be used if the load in the wash
programme is greater than the
maximum load permitted for drying,
or if you only want to dry part of the
load that was washed.
Tips on drying
Do not put soaking wet items into
the machine to dry them. Spin them
thoroughly after washing using the
appropriate spin speed.
– Woollens and wool blends tend to
become matted and shrink if dried in
a tumble dryer. They can be partially
dried using the Woollens
programme.
– Starched laundry can be dried in the
tumble dryer. To achieve the usual
finish, double the amount of starch
should be used.
– New dark coloured garments should
be washed and dried separately
from light coloured garments to avoid
the danger of colours running and
discolouring other garments. Dark
coloured fibres can also settle on
light coloured garments and vice
versa.
A Sort the laundry
^ Sort the laundry according to
type of fibre / weave and the residual
moisture content. This will help
achieve an even drying result.
^ Before drying check the drying
symbol on the care label.
– Down-filled garments have linings
which have a tendency to shrink,
depending on the quality of the item.
They can be partially dried using the
Smoothing programme.
q Dry at normal temperature
– Pure linen should only be machine
dried if specified as suitable by the
manufacturer on the care label, as
the surface of the fabric may
otherwise tend to roughen.
If the care label does not have a drying
symbol on it, the item should only be
dried in a programme named as
suitable for it.
– Loopknit garments (e.g. T-shirts and
underwear) tend to shrink depending
on their quality. Therefore: Do not
over-dry these textiles. When
purchasing these garments it is
advisable to take their shrinkage
properties into account.

Cleaning and care
Cleaning the machine
,Disconnect the machine from
the electricity supply by switching
off at the wall socket and
withdrawing the plug before any
cleaning and maintenance work.
,Do not use solvents, abrasive
cleaners, glass cleaners or
all-purpose cleaning agents.
These might damage plastic
surfaces and other components
because of the chemicals they
contain.
,The machine must not be hosed
down.
^ Clean the casing and the control
panel with a mild non-abrasive
cleaning agent or soap and water.
Wipe dry with a soft cloth.
Cleaning the porthole glass
^ From time to time you should also
clean ...
– the door glass on the inside using a
mild detergent or soap and water.
– the metal cap on the inside of the

Opening the drum door in the
event of a blocked drain outlet
and/or power failure
^ Switch the machine off.
There is a lever behind the detergent
drawer fascia panel.
Blocked drain outlet
If the drain outlet is blocked, up to 25
litres of water will be retained in the
machine.
,Caution: if laundry has been
washed at a high temperature,
water draining out of the machine
will still be hot. Danger of scalding!
Procedure for draining the machine
^ Place a suitable container under the
access flap.
When draining water from the
machine, do not unscrew the drain
filter completely or take it right out.
^ Remove the lever.
^ Use it to open the access flap.
Slowly and carefully unscrew the filter
to let the water out. Be careful not to
release too much water at once. If the
flow of water is too strong, some water
can seep into the machine base and

Installation and connection
Installation surface
Installing the washer-dryer
A concrete floor is the most suitable
installation surface, being far less
prone to vibration during the spin cycle
than wooden floorboards or a carpeted
surface.
To manoeuvre the machine out of its
packing case to its installation site, hold
it by the edge of the lid where it
protrudes to the rear of the machine as
well as by the handle recesses at the
front.
Please note the following points:
^ The machine must be level and
securely positioned.
^ To avoid vibrations during spinning,
the machine should not be installed
on soft floor coverings.
If installing on a wooden joist floor:
,Ensure that the machine feet
and the floor are dry to prevent the
machine from slipping during the
spin cycle.
Removing the transit bars
^ We recommend a plywood base (at
least 59x52x3 cm). The base should
span several joists and be bolted to
the joists and not only to the
floorboards. Check for the presence
of pipes and cables first.
If possible, install the machine in a
corner, as this is usually the most stable
part of the floor.
,If the machine is installed on a
raised plinth, it has to be secured
against slippage during spinning
using retaining clamps (available
from the Miele Spare Parts Dept).
Otherwise there is a danger of the
washer-dryer moving about and
falling off the plinth.
68
^ To remove the left and right covers
1. Use a screwdriver to prise out the
cover as illustrated.
2. Pull the cover forwards to remove.
Installation and connection
^ Using the spanner supplied turn the
left-hand transit bar 90°, then
^ Turn the right-hand transit bar 90°,
then
^ withdraw the transit bar.
^ withdraw the transit bar.
69
Installation and connection
,To avoid the risk of injury the
holes for the transit bars must be
covered after the transit bars have
been removed.
^ Fit the covers on to the two holes.
Then plug the holes as shown with
the caps.
,The machine must not be moved
without the transit bars in place.
Store them in a safe place for future
use. They must be re-fitted if the
machine is to be moved again (e.g.
when moving house).
Re-fitting the transit bars
Re-fitting is carried out by reversing the
procedure.
70
Levelling the machine
The machine must stand perfectly level
on all four feet to ensure safe and
proper operation.
Incorrect installation may increase
electricity and water consumption and
may cause the washer-dryer to move
about. False values may also show in
the Load and Detergent display.
Installation and connection
Screwing out and adjusting the feet
The four adjustable screw feet are used
to level the machine. All four feet are
screwed in when the machine is
delivered.
Building under a continous worktop /
in a kitchen run
The fitting of building under kits
must only be undertaken by
qualified and competent persons, in
accordance with the instructions
supplied with the kit.
If you wish to push your machine under
a worktop and there is space to do this
without removing the lid, the
conversion kit is not necessary.
Otherwise it is essential.
– The building under conversion kit*
includes a cover plate which must be
fitted to ensure electrical safety.
^ Using the spanner supplied turn
counter nut 2 in a clockwise
direction. Then turn counter nut 2
together with foot 1 to unscrew.
^ Use a spirit level to check the
machine is standing level.
^ Hold foot 1 securely with a pipe
wrench. Turn counter nut 2 again
using the spanner supplied until it
sits firmly up against the housing.
,All four counternuts must sit
firmly up against the housing.
Please also check this for the feet
which did not need adjustment.
Otherwise there is the danger of the
machine moving about.
– When installing under a 900/910 mm
high worktop a raising kit* is
required.
– Connections for electricity, water and
drainage should be installed in such
a way that they remain accessible
when the machine is in place.
Fitting instructions are supplied with the
conversion kit.
All parts marked * are available from
your Dealer, the Miele Spare Parts
Department or via the internet at
www.miele-shop.com.

Installation and connection
The Miele water protection
system
The Miele water protection system
protects machine from water damage.
The system consists of three main
components:
1) the inlet hose
2) the electronic unit and the machine
housing
3) the drain hose
1) Inlet hose
– Protection against bursting
The inlet hose is tested to withstand
pressure of more than 14,000 kPa.
It has a metal braided sleeve to
protect the hose from damage.
2) Electronic unit and machine
housing
– Sump
Any leaking water is collected in a
sump in the base of the machine. A
float switches off the safety valves,
preventing any more water flowing
into the machine and water in the
suds container is pumped away.
72
– Overflow protection
This prevents the maching taking in
too much water. If the water level
exceeds a certain level, the drain
pump switches in and pumps the
excess water away.
3) Drain hose
The drain hose is protected by a
ventilation system which prevents the
machine from being emptied
completely.
Installation and connection
Connection to the water
supply
The machine should be connected to a
mains water supply in accordance with
local and national safety regulations.
The German authorities do not require it
to have a non-return valve as the
washer-dryer has been designed to
comply with DIN regulations.
The machine is designed to operate
with a flow pressure of between
100 kPa and 1,000 kPa. If it is higher
than 1,000 kPa it is essential to fit a
reducer valve.
In order to protect the water inlet
valve, the dirt filter in the water inlet
valve connection must not be
removed.
Extension hose
A 1.5 metre long (metal) extension hose
is available from your Miele dealer or
the Miele Spare Parts Department as an
optional extra.
This hose is tested to withstand
pressures of up to 14,000 kPa and can
be used as a flexible extension to the
water supply.
Connection to the mains water supply
should incorporate a mains stopcock
with 3/4" thread. The stopcock should
be fitted by a qualified plumber.
,The connection point is subject
to mains water pressure. Turn on the
stopcock slowly and check for
leaks. Correct the position of the
washer and union if appropriate.
This machine is not suitable for
connection to a hot water supply.
Maintenance and care
Only use a genuine Miele hose which is
pressure tested to 14,000 kPa should
you ever need a replacement or
extension.
73
Installation and connection
Connection to the drainage
system
The machine drains via a drain pump
with a delivery head of 1 metre*. The
drain hose must not be kinked as this
restricts drainage. The swivel elbow at
the end of the hose can be turned in
either direction, or can be detached if
required, with a sharp twist and pull.
* For a delivery head of more than 1 m
(up to a max. of 1.8 m) a second
duo-drain pump is available with the
corresponding kit from the Miele Spare
Parts Department or your Miele Dealer.
Drain hose connection:
1. Direct into a sink or basin:
Please note:
– Hook the hose over the edge and
secure.
– Make sure that the water can drain
away freely without hindrance.
Otherwise there is a risk of water
overflowing or of some of the drained
water being siphoned back into the
machine.
2. Connected securely to a plastic
drain pipe with a rubber nipple.
There is no need to use a non-return
valve.
3. Connected securely to a standpipe.
4. Connected securely to a floor gully.
If required, the drain hose can be
extended to a length of 5 m. The
necessary parts can purchased from
the Miele Spare Parts Department or
your Miele dealer.

Longer pre-wash Cottons
The pre-wash duration can be
extended in the Cottons programme.
If you require a longer pre-wash, an
additional 6, 9 or 12 minutes can be
added to the standard 25 minutes .
Gentle action
Activating gentle action reduces the
drum action and is suitable for
washing slightly soiled items more
gently. It should be activated for
garments with a single bar under the
care label and for articles which feel
too hard after they have been dried.
Suds cooling
When this is activated, additional
water flows into the drum at the end
of the main wash to cool the suds
down. Hot suds can damage plastic
drainage pipes.
Suds cooling takes place when
temperatures of 95°C and 75°C are
selected.
Suds cooling should be activated:
– to prevent the danger of scalding if
the drain hose is hooked over the
edge of a sink or basin.
– where the drainage pipes do not
comply with DIN 1986.
Gentle action can be activated for the
Cottons and the Minimum iron
programmes.
