40cm
100cm
• The hose should be attached to a height of at
least 40 cm, and 100 cm 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.
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.

Preparation
4.2 Preparing laundry for washing
• Laundry items with metal attachments such as,
underwired bras, belt buckles or metal buttons
will damage the machine. Remove the metal
pieces or wash the clothes by putting them in a
laundry bag or pillow case.
• Take out all substances in the pockets such as
coins, pens and paper clips, and turn pockets
inside out and brush. Such objects may damage
the product or cause noise problem.
• Put small size clothes such as infant's socks
and nylon stockings in a laundry bag or pillow
case.
• Place curtains in without compressing them.
Remove curtain attachment items.
• Fasten zippers, sew loose buttons and mend
rips and tears.
• Wash “machine washable” or “hand washable”
labeled products only with an appropriate
programme.
• Do not wash colours and whites together. New,
dark coloured cottons release a lot of dye. Wash
them separately.
• Tough stains must be treated properly before
washing. If unsure, check with a dry cleaner.
• Use only dyes/colour changers and limescale
removers suitable for machine wash. Always
follow the instructions on the package.
• Wash trousers and delicate laundry turned
inside out.
• Keep laundry items made of Angora wool in the
freezer for a few hours before washing. This will
reduce pilling.
• Laundry that are subjected to materials such as
flour, lime dust, milk powder, etc. intensely must
be shaken off before placing into the machine.
Such dusts and powders on the laundry may
build up on the inner parts of the machine in
time and can cause damage.

(compartment nr. "1").
Washing Machine /User’s Manual
Preparation
• Do not select a programme with prewash if you
are using a detergent bag or dispensing ball.
Place the detergent bag or the dispensing ball
directly among the laundry in the machine.
• If you are using liquid detergent, do not forget
to place the liquid detergent cup into the main
wash compartment (compartment nr. "2").
Choosing the detergent type
The type of detergent to be used depends on the
type and colour of the fabric.
• Use different detergents for coloured and white
laundry.
• Wash your delicate clothes only with special
detergents (liquid detergent, wool shampoo,
etc.) used solely for delicate clothes.
• When washing dark coloured clothes and quilts,
it is recommended to use liquid detergent.
• Wash woolens with special detergent made
specifically for woolens.
A
warning: Use only detergents
manufactured specifically for washing
machines.
warning: Do not use soap powder.
Adjusting detergent amount
The amount of washing detergent to be used
depends on the amount of laundry, the degree of
soiling and water hardness.
• Do not use amounts exceeding the dosage
quantities recommended on the detergent
package to avoid problems of excessive foam,
poor rinsing, financial savings and finally,
environmental protection.
• Use lesser detergent for small amounts or
lightly soiled clothes.
Using softeners
Pour the softener into the softener compartment
of the detergent drawer.
• Do not exceed the (>max<) level marking in the
softener compartment.
• If the softener has lost its fluidity, dilute it with
water before putting it in the detergent drawer.
Using liquid detergents
If the product contains a liquid detergent cup:
• Make sure that you have placed the liquid
detergent cup in compartment nr. "2".
• If the liquid detergent has lost its fluidity, dilute
it with water before putting in the detergent
cup.
If the product does not contain a liquid
detergent cup:
• Do not use liquid detergent for the prewash in a
programme with prewash.
• Liquid detergent stains your clothes when used
with Delayed Start function. If you are going to
use the Delayed Start function, do not use liquid
detergent.
Using gel and tablet detergent
Apply the following instructions when using tablet,
gel and similar detergents.
• If the gel detergent thickness is fluidal and
your machine does not contain a special liquid
detergent cup, put the gel detergent into the
main wash detergent compartment during first
water intake. If your machine contains a liquid
detergent cup, fill the detergent into this cup
before starting the programme.
• If the gel detergent thickness is not fluidal or in
the shape of capsule liquid tablet, put it directly
into the drum before washing.
• Put tablet detergents into the main wash
compartment (compartment nr. "2") or directly
into the drum before washing.
C
Tablet detergents may leave residues in the
detergent compartment. If you encounter such
a case, place the tablet detergent between the
laundry, close to the lower part of the drum in
future washings.
Use the tablet or gel detergent without selecting
the prewash function.
Washing Machine /User’s Manual

Preparation
Using starch
• Add liquid starch, powder starch or the fabric
dye into the softener compartment.
• Do not use softener and starch together in a
washing cycle.
• Wipe the inside of the machine with a damp
and clean cloth after using starch.
Using bleaches
• Select a programme with prewash and add
the bleaching agent at the beginning of the
prewash. Do not put detergent in the prewash
compartment. As an alternative application,
select a programme with extra rinse and add
the bleaching agent while the machine is taking
water from the detergent compartment during
first rinsing step.
• Do not use bleaching agent and detergent by
mixing them.
• Use just a little amount (approx. 50 ml) of
bleaching agent and rinse the clothes very
well as it causes skin irritation. Do not pour the
bleaching agent onto the clothes and do not
use it for coloured clothes.
• When using oxygen based bleaches, select
a programme that washes at a lower
temperature.
• Oxygen based bleaches can be used together
with detergents; however, if its thickness
is not the same with the detergent, put the
detergent first into the compartment nr. "2"
in the detergent drawer and wait until the
detergent flows while the machine is taking in
water. Add the bleaching agent from the same
compartment while the machine is still taking in
water.
Using limescale remover
• When required, use limescale removers
manufactured specifically for washing machines
only.

5.5 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.
Washing Machine /User’s Manual
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.

all other wash 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 a more
economical wash. This feature is available for
certain models having remaining time display.
• Hygiene
Use this programme to wash baby laundry, and
the laundry that belongs to allergic persons.
Longer heating time and an additional rinsing step
provide a higher level of hygiene.
• Delicates
Use this programme to wash your delicate clothes.
It washes with a gentle action without any interim
spin compared to the Synthetics programme.
• Hand Wash

6 Maintenance and cleaning
Service life of the product extends and frequently
faced problems decrease if cleaned at regular
intervals.
If your detergent drawer is the one indicated in the
following figure:
6.1 Cleaning the detergent drawer
Clean the detergent drawer at regular intervals
(every 4-5 washing cycles) as shown below
in order to prevent accumulation of powder
detergent in time.
C
1.Press the dotted point on the siphon in the
softener compartment and pull towards you
until the compartment is removed from the
machine.
C
If more than normal amount of water and
softener mixture starts to gather in the softener
compartment, the siphon must be cleaned.
2.Wash the detergent drawer and the siphon with
plenty of lukewarm water in a washbasin. Wear
protective gloves or use an appropriate brush
to avoid touching of the residues in the drawer
with your skin when cleaning.
3.Insert the drawer back into its place after
cleaning and make sure that it is seated well.
6.2 Cleaning the loading
door and the drum
Residues of softener, detergent and dirt may
accumulate in your machine in time and may
cause unpleasant odours and washing complaints.
To avoid this, use the Drum Cleaning programme.
If your machine is not featured with Drum
Cleaning programme, use Cottons-90 programme
and select Additional Water or Extra Rinse
auxiliary functions as well. Run theBefore starting
the programme, put max. 100 g of powder
anti-limescale into the main wash detergent
compartment (compartment nr. 2). If the antilimescale is in tablet form, put only one tablet into
compartment nr. 2. Dry the inside of the bellow
with a clean piece of cloth after the programme
has come to an end.

substance is left in the drum.
If the holes on the bellow shown in the figure is
blocked, open the holes using a toothpick.
C
A
Foreign metal substances will cause rust stains
in the drum. Clean the stains on the drum
surface by using cleaning agents for stainless
steel. Never use steel wool or wire wool.
warning: Never use sponge or scrub
materials. These will damage the painted and
plastic surfaces.
6.3 Cleaning the body
and control panel
Wipe the body of the machine with soapy water or
non-corrosive mild gel detergents as necessary,
and dry with a soft cloth.
Use only a soft and damp cloth to clean the
control panel.
6.4 Cleaning the water intake filters
There is a filter at the end of each water intake
valve at the rear of the machine and also at the
end of each water intake hose where they are
connected to the tap. These filters prevent foreign
substances and dirt in the water to enter the
washing machine. Filters should be cleaned as
they do get dirty.
2.Remove the nuts of the water intake hoses to
access the filters on the water intake valves.
Clean them with an appropriate brush. If the
filters are too dirty, take them out by means of
pliers and clean them.
3.Take out the filters on the flat ends of the water
intake hoses together with the gaskets and
clean thoroughly under running water.
4.Replace the gaskets and filters carefully in their
places and tighten the hose nuts by hand.
6.5 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
(e.g., when moving to another house) and in case
of freezing of the water, water may have to be
drained completely.
A
warning: Foreign substances left in the
pump filter may damage your machine or may
cause noise problem.
A
warning: Temperature of the water inside
the machine may rise up to 90 ºC. To avoid
burning risk, filter must be cleaned after the
water in the machine cools down.
In order to clean the dirty filter and discharge the
water:
1.Unplug the machine to cut off the supply power.
2.Open the filter cap.
If the filter cap is composed of two pieces,
press the tab on the filter cap downwards and
pull the piece out towards yourself.

sides at the top to open.
C
You can remove the filter cover by slightly
pushing downwards with a thin plastic tipped
tool, through the gap above the filter cover. Do
not use metal tipped tools to remove the cover.
3.Some of our products have emergency draining
hose and some does not have. Follow the steps
below to discharge the water.
Discharging the water when the product has an
emergency draining hose:
a.Place a large container in front of the filter to
catch water from the filter.
b.Loosen pump filter (anticlockwise) until water
starts to flow. Fill the flowing water into the
container you have placed in front of the filter.
Always keep a piece of cloth handy to absorb
any spilled water.
c.When the water inside the machine is finished,
take out the filter completely by turning it.
4.Clean any residues inside the filter as well as
fibers, if any, around the pump impeller region.
5.Install the filter.
6.If the filter cap is composed of two pieces, close
the filter cap by pressing on the tab. If it is one
piece, seat the tabs in the lower part into their
places first, and then press the upper part to
close.
a.Pull the emergency draining hose out from its
seat
b.Place a large container at the end of the hose.
