~ Page 16
■
Wash normally soiled laundry
without a prewash.
Save energy and detergent when
washing lightly and normally soiled
laundry. ~ Page 15
Using theintelligent dosing system
(i-DOS) to dose your detergent helps
you to save detergent and use less
water.
The selectable temperatures apply
to the care labels on the textiles. The
temperatures in the machine may
deviate from this so that you get the
optimum mix of energy-saving and
washing results.
■
Information on energy and water
consumption: ~ Page 12
The displays provide information
about the relative level of energy and
water consumption in the selected
programmes.
The more indicator lights light up,
the higher the programme's
consumption.
This enables you to compare the
consumption levels of the different
programmes when choosing your
programme settings and decide on
an energy- and water-saving
programme setting.
Energy-saving mode: The display
panel lighting goes out after a few
minutes and the A button flashes.
Press any button to activate the
lighting.
Energy-saving mode is not activated
if a programme is running.
Automatic switch off: If the
appliance is not operated for a
prolonged period, it may
automatically switch off before the

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.
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

Refer to the manufacturer's instructions
when choosing your detergent and
fabric softener. We recommend the use
of standard, universal and colour liquid
or gel detergents for all machinewashable, coloured fabrics made of
cotton or synthetic materials.
Notes
■
Only use easy-pour liquid products
and gels that the manufacturer
recommends adding to the
detergent drawer.

cleaning aids (e.g. stain remover) can
be added manually to compartment

en
Topping up the detergent/ fabric
softener:
If the indicator light for the selected
intelligent dosage flashes, this means
that the amount of detergent or fabric
softener in the dispenser is below the
minimum fill level. The contents will last
for another three washes or so.
The same detergent or fabric softener
can be added at any time. If you change
product/manufacturer, we recommend
that you clean the dispensers first.
~ Page 33
If required, adjust the basic dosage.
Basic settings
The basic dosages are:
■
■
For detergents – based on the
manufacturer’s recommendation for
average soiling and the respective
water hardness.
For fabric softeners – based on the
manufacturer's recommendation for
a medium level of softness.
Refer to the packaging label of your
detergent/fabric softener or ask the
manufacturer directly for this
information.
To find out the hardness of your water
supply, use a test strip or check with
your water supplier.
My water hardness:
Note: The selection (on/off) and the
selected dosage strength for i-DOS i
and i-DOS w are saved for each
programme until they are changed
again, even if the washing machine is
switched off.
Below is an example of detergent
dosages on a packaging label:

heavy
very
heavy
soft/medium
55 ml 75 ml 120 ml 160 ml

75 ml 95 ml 150 ml 180 ml
The default setting for the basic dosage
is set specifically according to the area
in which you live (e.g. 75 ml for
detergent and 36 ml for fabric softener).
To achieve optimum washing and
rinsing results, please set your basic
dosage depending on your detergent,
the water hardness in your area and the
fabric softener you use.
Notes
■
Reduce the basic dosage if using a
very concentrated detergent.
■
If large amounts of foam are
repeatedly created during washing,
please check your basic dosage and
dosage strength settings.
Certain types of liquid detergent can
also create excessive amounts of
foam. If your basic dosage and
dosage strength settings are correct,
we advise you to use a different
detergent.
Changing the basic dosages:
1. Press the corresponding i-DOS
button (w or i) for approx. 3
seconds. The preset basic dosage
will appear in the display panel.
2. Set the required basic dosage using
the Finished In - or + buttons.
3. The setting is activated without
needing to be confirmed. You can
now wait for a short while or press
any button (except the i-DOS
buttons) to revert to the original
setting.
Note: The settings are saved until
they are changed again, even if the
machine is switched off.

Manual dosage
For programmes that cannot be used
with intelligent dosage, or if you would
prefer to dose manually (in which case
set intelligent dosage to "off" ö), add
detergent to compartment v u.
Cleaning aids such as water softener,
bleach and stain remover can be added
to this compartment in addition to the
intelligent dosage.
: Warning
Eye/skin irritation!
Detergent and care products may spray
out if the detergent drawer is opened
while the machine is in operation.
Open the drawer carefully.
Rinse eyes or skin thoroughly if they
come into contact with detergent/care
products.
If swallowed accidentally, seek medical
advice.
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.
Notes
When dosing all detergents,
cleaning aids and cleaning agents,
always follow the manufacturer's
instructions.
■
If dosing detergent manually, do not
add additional detergent to the
intelligent dosage dispenser (set
intelligent dosage to "off" ö). This will
prevent overdosing and foaming.
■
Dilute viscous fabric softener and
fabric conditioner with water to
prevent blockages.

housing
Notes
■
Ensure the room in which the
washing machine is set up is well
ventilated.
■
Leave the door and detergent
dispenser tray open slightly when
the washing machine is not in use.
■
Occasionally run a wash using the
Cottons 60 °C programme and
powder detergent.
1. Emptying the dispensers:
The dispensers have emptying
outlets with removable sealing plugs
at the front. To empty the
dispensers, first remove the drawer
handle as shown below:
a) Pull out the detergent drawer.

b) Pull the catch (A) on the back of
the drawer handle (in the centre
at the bottom) slightly towards
you. This unlocks the drawer
handle (B), which you can then
pull off by lifting it upwards.
Drum
Use chlorine-free cleaning agents, do
not use steel wool.
If there are odours in the washing
machine, or to clean the drum, run the
Drum Clean 90 °C programme without
laundry. Add washing powder.
Descaling
Descaling should not be necessary if
the detergent is measured out correctly.
However, if it is required, follow the
manufacturer's instructions for the
descaling agent. Suitable descalers can
be obtained via our website or from
customer services. ~ Page 41
c) To empty the dispensers,
carefully pull off each of the
sealing plugs and empty the
contents into a suitable container.
d) Then push the sealing plugs
back in completely.
