Placing laundry into the drum
: Warning
Danger of death!
Items of laundry pretreated with
cleaning agents that contain solvents,
e.g. stain remover/cleaning solvent,
may cause an explosion after being
loaded into the washing machine.
Hand-rinse these items of laundry
thoroughly beforehand.
16
Notes
■
Mix items of laundry of varying
sizes.Laundry items of different sizes
distribute themselves better during
the spin cycle.Individual laundry
items may cause an unbalanced
load.
■
Observe the maximum specified
load. Overfilling adversely affects the
washing result and promotes
creasing.
1. Unfold presorted laundry items and
place them in the drum.
2. Make sure that no items of laundry
are trapped between the door and
the rubber seal, and close the door.
Measure and add detergent
and care products
Caution!
Damage to the appliance
Cleaning agents and agents for
pretreating laundry (e.g. stain removers,
prewash sprays, etc.) may cause
damage if they come into contact with
the surfaces of the washing machine.
Do not allow these agents to come into
contact with the surfaces of the washing
machine. If necessary, immediately wipe
away spray residue and other residues/
droplets with a damp cloth.

When the tap is open, the water flow
rate is at least 8 l/min.
If the water pressure is higher than this,
a pressure-reducing valve must be
installed.
Cold water connection
Note: With a cold water connection,
only operate the washing machine using
cold mains water.
Connect the water supply hose to the
tap (26.4 mm = ¾") and to the
appliance (not necessary for Aqua-Stop
models as this is permanently installed):
■
Model: Standard
■
Model: Aqua-Secure
■
Model: Aqua-Stop
en
Note: Turn on the tap carefully,
checking the leak tightness of the
connection points. The screw
connection is under mains water
pressure.
Hot and cold water connection
Notes
■
With a hot water connection, operate
the washing machine with hot and
cold mains water, with a maximum
temperature of 60 °C.

If there is no hot water connection, you
need a Y-piece, available from customer
service with single part number:

■
Connect both supply hoses to the
cold water tap with a Y-piece and
■
connect both supply hoses to the

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.
Note: Carefully turn on the taps and
check that the connection points are not
leaking. 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.

■
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).
Positioning and connecting
■
Outlet into a plastic pipe with
rubber bushing or into a drainage
pit
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.
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.

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.
