“Intensive rinse” button
• More water is added and rinse cycle is prolonged.
• This option is particularly suitable for areas with very
soft water or for washing baby linen, and helps people
with allergies.
“Eco” button
• With a modified temperature profile and a slightly
prolonged washing duration, the optimum
combination of excellent washing result and even
lower energy consumption is achieved.
“Steam Hygiene +” button
• Eliminates bacteria and helps sanitizing the laundry.
• Appropriate for cotton and/or synthetic laundry items with
care label
within temperature range of 40 to 60°C.
Consumption values were measured in normalized conditions in compliance with Standard IEC/EN 60 456. Consumption data in the home
may vary with respect to the values in the table in relation to the water supply pressure and temperature, the load and the type of wash.
The time indicated on the display can deviate from the values in the table, because it takes into account the operating conditions
*
applicable at that time.
To reduce the water temperature, some cold water is added at the end of the main wash cycle, before the pump drains the water out.

4.Energy saving
The water consumption of your washing machine is
optimized; in some programmes you therefore
cannot see the water through the door glass when
the machine is in operation.
• Achieve the best use of energy, water, detergent
and time by using the recommended maximum
load size.

in the manufacturer’s instructions.
• The Eco-Ball - a special system in the outlet - will
prevent detergent loss from the drum to avoid
detergent loss into the environment.
• Use “Prewash” for heavily soiled laundry only!
Save detergent, time, water and energy
consumption by not selecting “Prewash” for
slight to normally soiled laundry.
• Pretreat stains with stain remover or soak driedin stains in water before washing to reduce the
necessity of a hot wash programme.
• Save energy by using a 60° C instead of a 95° C
wash programme or a 40° C instead of a 60° C
wash programme.
• Save energy and time by selecting a high spin
speed to reduce the water content in laundry
before using a tumble dryer (for machines with
adjustable spin speed).

2. Close the door.
3. Pour a little detergent (about 30 ml) into the main wash chamber
of the detergent dispenser.
4. Select and start a short programme (see separate “Programme Chart”).
GB 4
PREPARATION OF THE WASHING
1.Sort the laundry according to...
Stain removal
• Type of fabric / care label symbol
Cottons, mixed fibres, easy care/synthetics,
wool, handwash items.
• Colour
Separate coloured and white items. Wash new
coloured articles separately.
• Loading
Wash items of different sizes in the same load to
improve washing efficiency and distribution in the
drum.
• Delicates
Wash small items (e.g. nylon stockings, belts etc.)
and items with hooks (e.g. bras) in a cloth bag or
pillow case with zip. Always remove curtain rings
or wash curtains with the rings inside a cotton bag.
• Blood, milk, eggs etc. are generally removed by
the automatic enzyme phase of the programme.
• To remove red wine, coffee, tea, grass and fruit
stains etc. add a stain remover to the main wash
chamber
of the detergent dispenser.
• Pre-treat heavily-soiled areas with stain remover
if necessary.
2.Empty all pockets
Coins, safety pins etc. can damage your laundry
as well as the appliance drum and tub.
3.Fasteners
Close zips and fasten buttons or hooks; loose
belts or ribbons should be tied together.
Dyeing and bleaching
• Only use dyes and bleaches that are suitable for
washing machines.
• Follow the Manufacturer’s instructions.
• Plastic and rubber parts of the washing machine
can be stained by dyes or bleaches.
Loading the laundry
1. Open the door.
2. Load the articles one at a time loosely into the
drum, without overfilling. Observe the load sizes
given in the quick reference guide.
Note: overloading the machine will result in
unsatisfactory washing results and creased laundry.
3. Close the door.
DETERGENTS AND ADDITIVES
Keep detergents and additives in a safe,
dry place out of the reach of children!
The choice of detergent depends on:
• Type of fabric (cottons, easy care/synthetics,
delicate items, wool).
Note: Use only specific detergents for washing
wool.
• Colour.
• The wash temperature.
• Degree and type of soiling.
Remarks:
• Any whitish residues on dark fabrics are caused
by insoluble compounds used in modern
phosphate-free powder detergents. If this
occurs, shake or brush out the fabric or use liquid
detergents.
• Use only detergents and additives specifically
produced for domestic washing machines.
• When using descaling agents, dyes or bleaches
for the pre-wash, make sure that they are
suitable for use in domestic washing machines.
Descalers could contain products which could
damage your washing machine.
• Do not use any solvents (e.g. turpentine,
benzine). Do not machine wash fabrics that have
been treated with solvents or flammable liquids.
• Do not use liquid detergent for the main wash
when having activated the “prewash” option (if
available on your model).
• Do not use liquid detergent when activating the
“Start Delay” function (if available on your
washing machine).
Dosage
Follow the dosage recommendations on the
detergent pack. They depend on:
• degree and type of soiling
• size of wash
full load: follow the detergent manufacturer’s
instructions;
half load: 3/4 the amount used for a full load;
Minimum load (about 1 kg):
1/2 the amount used for a full load
• water hardness in your area (ask for information
from your water company). Soft water requires
less detergent than hard water (refer to the water
hardness table in the operating instructions).
Notes:
Too much detergent can result in excess foam
formation, which reduces washing efficiency.
If the washing machine detects too much foam, it
may prevent spinning.
Insufficient detergent may result in grey laundry in time
and also calcifies the heating system, drum and hoses.

For use with powder detergent: place the separator in the higher
position.
Lift the separator until its top can be reclined. Place its hooks on the
upper end of the back guide rails and slightly push the separator
down to fix it (fig. “B” and “C”).
A gap should remain between the separator and the bottom of the main
wash chamber, if the separator has been correctly installed (fig. “B” and
“C”).
For use with liquid detergent: place the separator in the lower position.
Secure the separator in the chamber using the front guide rails.
Position the separator so that it touches the bottom of the main
wash chamber
(fig. “D”).
