installing the product. Otherwise, your
laundry will come out hot at the end
of the washing process and wear out.
2. Tighten all hose nuts by hand. Never
use a wrench when tightening the
nuts.
C
Connecting water supply
water supply pressure required
CThe
to run the product is between 1 to 10
bars (0.1 – 10 MPa). It is necessary
to have 10 – 80 liters of water flowing
from the fully open tap in one minute
to have your machine run smoothly.
Attach a pressure reducing valve if
water pressure is higher.
If you are going to use the double
water-inlet product as a single (cold)
water-inlet unit, you must install the
supplied stopper to the hot water
valve before operating the product.
(Applies for the products supplied
with a blind stopper group.)
If you want to use both water inlets
of the product, connect the hot water
hose after removing the stopper and
gasket group from the hot water
valve. (Applies for the products
supplied with a blind stopper group.)
Models with a single water inlet
should not be connected to the hot
water tap. In such a case the laundry
will get damaged or the product will
switch to protection mode and will not
operate.
Do not use old or used water inlet
hoses on the new product. It may
cause stains on your laundry.
1. Connect the special hoses supplied
with the product to the water inlets
on the product. Red hose (left) (max.
90 ºC) is for hot water inlet, blue hose
(right) (max. 25 ºC) is for cold water
inlet.
C
3. Open the taps completely after
making the hose connection to check
for water leaks at the connection
points. If any leaks occur, turn off the
tap and remove the nut. Retighten
the nut carefully after checking the
seal. To prevent water leakages and
damages caused by them, keep the
taps closed when the machine is not
in use.
C
Connecting to the drain
• The end of the drain hose must be
directly connected to the wastewater
drain or to the washbasin.
Your house will be flooded if the
hose comes out of its housing
during water discharge. Moreover,
there is risk of scalding due to high
washing temperatures! To prevent
such situations and to ensure smooth
water intake and discharge of the
machine, fix the end of the discharge
hose tightly so that it cannot come
out.
• The hose should be attached to a
height of at least 40 cm, and 100 cm
A
A
A
9
EN
at most.
• In case the hose is elevated after
laying it on the floor level or close
to the ground (less than 40 cm
above the ground), water discharge
becomes more difficult and the
laundry may come out excessively
wet. Therefore, follow the heights
described in the figure.
• To prevent flowing of dirty water back
into the machine and to allow for easy
discharge, do not immerse the hose
end into the dirty water or drive it in
the drain more than 15 cm. If it is too
long, cut it short.
• The end of the hose should not be
bent, it should not be stepped on
and the hose must not be pinched
between the drain and the machine.
• If the length of the hose is too short,
use it by adding an original extension
hose. Length of the hose may not be
longer than 3.2 m. To avoid water leak
failures, the connection between the
extension hose and the drain hose of
the product must be fitted well with
an appropriate clamp as not to come
off and leak.
Adjusting the feet
order to ensure that the product

Main programmes
Depending on the type of fabric, use the
following main programmes.
• Cottons
Use this programme for your cotton
laundry (such as bed sheets, duvet and
pillowcase sets, towels, bathrobes,
underwear, etc.). Your laundry will be
washed with vigorous washing action for
a longer washing cycle.
• Synthetics
Use this programme to wash your
synthetic clothes (shirts, blouses,
synthetic/cotton blends, etc.). It washes
with a gentle action and has a shorter
washing cycle compared to the Cottons
programme.
For curtains and tulle, use the Synthetic
40˚C programme with prewash and
anti-creasing functions selected. As
their meshed texture causes excessive
foaming, wash the veils/tulle by putting
little amount of detergent into the main
wash compartment. Do not put detergent
in the prewash compartment.
• Woollens
Use this programme to wash your
woolen clothes. Select the appropriate
temperature complying with the tags of
your clothes. Use appropriate detergents
for woolens.

programmes suitable for cottons. Actual
water temperature may differ from the
declared cycle temperature. Programme
duration may automatically be shortened
during later stages of the programme if
you wash less amount (e.g. ½ capacity
or less) of laundry. In this case energy
and water consumption will be further
decreased giving you the opportunity for
C
a more economical wash. This feature
is available for certain models having

If the filter cap is one piece, pull the cap
from both sides at the top to open.
Draining remaining water and
cleaning the pump filter
The filter system in your machine prevents
solid items such as buttons, coins and
fabric fibers clogging the pump impeller
during discharge of washing water. Thus,
the water will be discharged without any
problem and the service life of the pump
will extend.
If the machine fails to drain water, the
pump filter is clogged. Filter must be
cleaned whenever it is clogged or in every
3 months. Water must be drained off first
to clean the pump filter.
In addition, prior to transporting the
machine (eg., when moving to another
house) and in case of freezing of the
water, water may have to be drained
completely.
