– Separate out the various waste materials of the packaging and take
them to the nearest collection point.
– Always fill the appliance with the maximum amount of laundry for each
programme.
– Wash normally soiled laundry without a prewash.
– Instead of Cottons 90 °C, choose the programme
Cottons 60 °C, X Intensiv → page 13. Similar cleaning performance
with considerably lower energy consumption.
– Measure the detergent according to the manufacturer's instructions
and in line with the local water hardness.
– If the laundry is subsequently dried in a tumble drier, select the spin
speed according to the tumble drier manufacturer's instructions.

Description of the
washer dryer
The washer-dryer can be used
in 3 ways → page 17:
– washing only,
– drying only,
– successive washing and drying.
The successive wash-dry programme shifts automatically from the wash
cycle to the dry cycle without further intervention.
Drying is achieved using the condensation principle. The condensate that
is produced during drying runs via the drain hose into the drain tank.
Caution: the water supply hose and water drain hose must be correctly
connected during washing and drying → page 28. The water hose must
be open.
Door
A safety device prevents the door from being opened during operation.
Before opening
Make sure that there is no water in the drum and that the drum is not
moving.
