Notes
■
Mix items of laundry of varying sizes.
Laundry items of different sizes
distribute themselves better during
the spin cycle. Individual items of
laundry may lead to imbalances.
■
Observe the specified maximum
load. Overfilling has a negative
impact on the washing result and
promotes creasing.
1. Place presorted items of laundry
unfolded in the washing drum.
2. Make sure that no items of laundry
are trapped between the washing
machine door and the rubber seal,
and close the door.

the machine:
aFP
Right-hand connection
Notes
Only operate the washing machine
using cold mains water.
■
Do not connect the machine to the
mixer tap of an unpressurised hotwater boiler.
■
Do not use a used supply hose. Only
use the supply hose supplied or one
that was purchased from an
authorised specialist retailer.
■
Do not bend, squash, modify or cut
through the water supply hose
(otherwise its strength is no longer
guaranteed).
■
33
en
■
Positioning and connecting
Only tighten the screw connections
by hand. If the screw connections
are tightened too much with a tool
(pliers), the thread may be
damaged.
Optimum water pressure in the supply
network
At least 100 kPa (1 bar)
Maximum 1000 kPa (10 bar)
When the tap is open, the water flow is
at least 8 l/min.
If the water pressure is higher than this,
a pressure-reducing valve must be
installed.
Connection
Connect the water supply hose to the
water tap (¾" = 26.4 mm) and to the
appliance (not necessary for Aqua-Stop
models as this is permanently installed):
■
Model: Standard
■
Model: Aqua­Secure
■
Model: Aqua-Stop
34
Note: Open the water tap carefully,
checking the leak tightness of the
connection points. The screw
connection is under mains water
pressure.
Water outlet
Caution!
Water damage
If the drain hose slips out of the wash
basin or the connection point during
draining due to high water pressure, any
escaping water may cause water
damage.
Secure the drain hose so that it cannot
slip out.
Note: Do not kink the water drain hose
or put strain on it lengthways.
You can lay the water drain hose as
follows:
■
Outlet in a sink
: Warning
Risk of scalding!
When you are washing at high
temperatures, there is a risk of
scalding if you come into contact
with hot detergent solution e.g. if hot
detergent solution is being drained
into a wash basin.
Do not reach into the hot detergent
solution.
Caution!
Damage to the appliance/fabrics
If the end of the drain hose is
immersed in the drained water, water
may be sucked back into the
appliance and may damage the
appliance/fabrics.
Make sure that:
– The plug does not block drainage
from the sink.
– The end of the drain hose is not
immersed in the drained water.
– The water drains away quickly
enough.
Positioning and connecting
en
In doing so, hold the foot tight and
do not adjust its height.
The lock nuts on all four appliance
feet must be screwed tightly against
the housing.
■
Drainage into a siphon
The connection point must be
secured using a hose clamp with a
diameter of 24-40 mm (available
from specialist dealers).
Electrical connection
: Warning
■
Outlet into a plastic pipe with
rubber bushing or into a drainage
pit
Danger of death!
There is a risk of electric shock if you
touch live components.
■
Never touch or hold the mains plug
with wet hands.
■
Only pull out the mains cable by the
plug and never by the cable, as this
could damage it.
■
Never unplug the mains plug during
operation.
Observe the following information and
ensure that:
Levelling
Level the appliance using a spirit level.
Incorrect levelling may result in intense
noise, vibrations and "wandering".
1. Loosen the lock nuts using a
wrench, by turning it in a clockwise
direction.
2. Check the alignment of the washing
machine with a spirit level, and
adjust it if necessary. Change the
height by turning the appliance feet.
All four appliance feet must stand
firmly on the ground.
3. Tighten the lock nut against the
housing.
Notes
■
The mains voltage and voltage
indicated on the washing machine
(rating plate) are the same.
The connected load and fuse
required are specified on the rating
plate.
■
The washing machine is only
connected to an alternating current
via a properly installed earthed
socket.
■
The mains plug fits the socket.
■
The cable cross-section is adequate.
■
The earthing system is properly
installed.

Positioning and connecting
The mains cable is only replaced by
a qualified electrician (if this is
necessary). Replacement mains
cables are available from the aftersales service.
No multiple plugs/couplings or
extension cables are used.
If an earth-leakage circuit breaker is
used, only a type which displays this
symbol is used: z.
Only this symbol guarantees
compliance with the currently
applicable regulations.
The mains plug can be accessed at
all times.
The mains cable is not bent,
squashed, modified, cut through, or
in contact with heat sources.
Before washing for the first
time
The washing machine was thoroughly
tested before leaving the factory. In
order to remove any water which may
be left over from the test, run the first
washing cycle without any laundry.
Notes
■
The washing machine must be
correctly installed and connected.
