2
Environmental tips
To save water and energy, and to help protect the environment, we recommend that you follow these tips.
• Do not use a pre-wash for normally soiled washing.
• It is more economical to wash full loads.
• When washing small loads, reduce the detergent by half to two
thirds.
• Pre-treat stains, and then wash at a lower temperature.
• Use the energy-saving program when washing light to normally
soiled garments.
• In hard water areas, the use of a water softening agent can reduce
the amount of detergent necessary. See manufacturers recommendations.

1) Note: The selected program is tested in accordance with EN 60 456. The consumption values, however, can deviate depending on the following: water pressure, water hardness, water inlet temperature, room temperature, washing type
and quantity, the detergent used, fluctuations in the mains voltage and the
selected program options.
Before the First Wash
0 1. Pull the washing powder drawer out slightly.
2. Pour about 1 litre of water through the detergent disperser drawer into
the washing machine. The next time a program is started the solution
container will be closed and the OKO valve can function correctly.
3. Run one wash cycle without washing:
– MAIN WASH Program;
– Temperature 95 °C;
– use half the quantity of detergent recommended by the manufacturer for a full load.

Operating Instructions
Preparing a Wash Load
Sorting and preparing a wash load
• Sort washing according to the care symbol and type (see "Washing
types and care symbols").
• Empty all pockets.
• Remove metal objects (paper clips, safety pins etc.).
• In order to prevent bunching up of washing and damage to washing,
close zippers, button up duvet covers and pillow cases, and tie up
loose straps such as from aprons.
• Turn articles with double layered textiles inside out (sleeping bags,
anoraks etc.).
• Coloured, knitted fabrics, as well as wool and fabrics with appliqués
should be turned inside out.
• Place small and delicate items (e.g. socks, tights and stockings, bras
etc.) in a washing net, or pillow case.
• Handle curtains with care. Metal rollers or burred, plastic rollers must
be removed or tied into a net or bag. We cannot accept liability for
damage.
• Do not wash coloured and white washing together. This could discolour white washing or turn it grey.
• New, coloured washing often contains excessive dye. Wash these separately the first time.
• Mix small and large items of washing. This improves washing efficiency and the washing is more evenly distributed during the spinning cycle.
• Shake out washing before placing into the washing machine.
• Do not place folded washing into the drum.
• Observe tips such as "wash separately“ and "wash separately several
times".

withstand maximum wash actions. The COTTONS/LINEN program is
appropriate for this type of washing.
Easy-care washing ê í
Fabrics such as treated cotton, cotton mixed fabrics, viscose and synthetics which carry this care symbol need a softer wash action. The
EASY-CARES program is appropriate for this type of washing.
Delicates ì
Fabrics such as those with layered fibres, micro fibres, viscose, synthetics,
as well as curtains with this care symbol require particularly careful handling. The DELICATES program is appropriate for this type of washing..
Woollens and particularly delicate washing 9 ì
Fabrics such as wool, wool mixtures and silk which carry these care
symbols require a very gentle wash cycle. The WOOL program is appropriate for this type of fabric.
Important! Fabrics with care symbols ï (Handwash) or ñ (Do not

16
Operating Instructions
Detergent and Conditioners
Which detergent and conditioner?
Use only detergents and conditioners which are suitable for use in
automatic washing machines. Always follow the manufacturer's
instructions.
How much detergent and conditioner?
The required quantity depends upon:
• the extent of soiling of the washing
• the hardness class of the mains water
• the amount of washing
2
Should the detergent manufacturer not specify the dosage quantity for
less than full loads, reduce the detergent accordingly:
for a half load reduce the quantity by 1/3.
for a small load reduce the quantity by 1/2.
Observe the instructions for use and dosing provided by the detergent
and conditioner manufacturer.
Water Softening
For medium to high water hardness (hardness class II upwards) a watersoftening agent can be used. Refer to the manufacturer's instructions.
Then always add the appropriate amount of detergent (underdosing)
for hardness class I (soft). Your local Water Authority can advise you on
the hardness of the water in your area.

Operating Instructions
If the washing results are not satisfactory
If the washing turns greyish and limescale deposits are present in
the drum
• Insufficient detergent has been added.
• Incorrect detergent was used.
• Stains were not pre-treated.
• Program or temperature was not set correctly.
• If using modular detergents, the individual components were not
used in the correct ratio.
If there are still grey stains on the washing
• Soiled garments with ointments, grease or oils were washed with
insufficient detergent.
• The temperature selected for the wash was too low.
• A frequent cause is that fabric softener - particularly a concentrated
one - has come into contact with the washing. Wash out these types
of stains as soon as possible and use the fabric softener carefully.
If after the last rinse foam is still visible
• Modern detergents can still cause foam in the final rinse cycle. However, the washing is still sufficiently rinsed.
If there are white residues on the washing
• These are insoluble contents of modern detergents. They are not the
result of an insufficient rinse. Shake out the washing or brush it off.
Turn the washing inside out before washing it. Review your choice of
detergent and if necessary use liquid detergent.
