Operating Instructions
1 Safety
Prior to using the appliance for the first time
• Follow the “Installation and connection instructions”.
• If the appliance is delivered in the winter months when there are minus temperatures: store the washing machine at room temperature
for 24 hours before using for the first time.
Correct use
• The washing machine is only designed for the washing of normal domestic laundry at home.
• Additions or modifications to the washing machine are not permitted.
• Only use detergents/conditioners that are suitable for use in domestic
washing machines.
• The washing must not contain any flammable solvent. The risk of explosion exists.
• Do not use the washing machine for dry cleaning.
• Dyes/colour removers may only be used in the washing machine, if
the manufacturer of these products expressly permits this. We cannot
accept liability for any damage arising.
Child safety
• Keep packaging away from children. There is a risk of suffocation.
• Children often do not recognise the hazards associated with electrical
appliances. Don’t allow children to use the washing machine unsupervised.
• Make sure that children and pets don’t climb into the drum of the
washing machine. The risk of death exists.
5
General safety
• Repairs to the washing machine may only be carried out by qualified/
authorised service engineers.
• Never use the appliance when the electrical cable is damaged or the
control panel, worktop or plinth area are damaged to such an extent
that the inside of the appliance is openly accessible.
• Switch off the washing machine prior to cleaning it and carrying out
maintenance. In addition, remove the power plug from the power
point or – if the appliance has been hard-wired – switch off the cutout in the fuse box or completely remove the fuse.
• If operation is stopped, disconnect the appliance from the mains supply and turn off the tap.
• Never remove the power plug from the power point by pulling on the
cable. Always pull the plug.
• Multiway-plugs, connectors and extension cables must not be used.
Resulting overheating may constitute a fire hazard.
• Never wash the washing machine down with a water jet. Danger of
electric shock.
• When using wash programmes with high temperatures the glass in
the door will become hot. Do not touch it!
• Before emergency emptying of the appliance, before cleaning the
drain pump or opening the door in an emergency, let the water cool
down.
• Small animals can nibble on electrical cables and water hoses. This
can constitute a risk of electrocution and water damage. Keep small
animals away from the washing machine.

1) Programme settings for testing in accordance with or in support of EN 60 456 and IEC 60 456 are described in
the Chapter “Consumption Values”.
2) In the case of excessively large volume washing of a fleecy nature, e.g. terry towelling, flannelette, it may be that
the drum is already full before the maximum load is reached.
3) Recommended load for short progammes is 3kg; full loading is possible however with somewhat reduced cleaning results.
4) STAIN can only be selected with wash temperatures of 40°C and above, as stain treatment products are only
effective at higher temperatures.

Programmes/features:
Energy-saving programme at 60 °C for lightly to normally soiled whites/coloureds
made of cotton/linen.
MO
Energy-saving programme at 95 °C for normally to heavily soiled whites/coloureds
made of cotton/linen.
O
General programme for whites/coloureds made of cotton/linen as well as for easycare mixed fibres and synthetics. The wash programme is adjusted according to the
different fabric types and load sizes. If loading only with easy-care washing, do not
load more than 3 kg.
JM
IKN
Programme for whites/coloureds which are labelled for different wash temperatures.
Items, which according to the care symbols are normally to be washed separately at
40 °C or at 60 °C, can be washed together in this programme. This makes better use
of the drum capacity and thus saves energy. Through an increased wash time the
washing results of a normal 60° programme are achieved.
JM
Gentle programme for delicate fabrics such as bonded fabrics, microfibres, synthetics, net curtains (max. load for net curtains 20 to 25 m2). With RINSE HOLD also suitable for fabrics with climate membrane, e. g. outdoor clothing.
IK
Particularly delicate programme for machine washable and hand washable wool or
wool mixtures.

Setting the time
So that the time and the end of the program are correctly displayed,
please check the display and set the current time if necessary. To do
this, please see the section “Setup/Clock”.
Carrying out a wash programme prior to first use
In order to remove any residues from the drum and water container
which may have been left during manufacturing, perform the first
wash cycle without any washing in the machine. Programme: LINEN/
EASY CARES 60 °C, option Time saving: VERY SHORT, use approx. 1/4
measuring cup of detergent.
Preparing and sorting washing
Preparing washing
• Empty the pockets. Remove foreign bodies (e.g. coins, paper clips,
nails, etc.).
• Do up zips, button up covers to prevent damage to washing.
• Remove the runners from net curtains or cover them with a net or a
bag.
• Wash delicate and small items in a net/pillowcase, e. g. net curtains,
tights, small socks, handkerchiefs, bras.
Important: Bras and other items containing wires should only be
washed in a net bag. The wires can work loose and damage the appliance.
Sorting washing
• By colour: Wash white and coloured washing separately. Washing can
run.
• By temperature, type of washing and care symbol.
Important: Do not wash fabrics with the G care symbol (= do not
wash!) in the washing machine.
11
Running a wash cycle
Adding detergent /conditioner
Important: Only use detergents/conditioners that are suitable for use
in household washing machines.
Add detergent/conditioner in accordance with the detergent/conditioner manufacturer’s instructions. Observe instructions on the packaging.
The amount of detergent used depends on:
– the degree of soiling,
– the load size
– the hardness of the tap water.
• If the manufacturer does not make any recommendations with regard to small volumes of washing: For a half-load use a third less, and
for a very small load use only the half the amount of detergent that
is recommended for a full load.
• Water softener should be used from water hardness range 2 (=medium). The amount of detergent used can then always be that as for
hardness range 1 (=soft). Your local water company will provide you
with information about water hardness in your area.
1. Pull out the detergent drawer as far as it will go.
2. Add the detergent/conditioner.
3. Push the detergent drawer in fully.

Setting options
Options can be added to a wash cycle that has already been selected.
Press the OPTIONS key. The display shows the symbols for the options.
PREWASH
Pre-washes at about 30 °C before the main wash cycle, which
follows automatically.
SENSITIVE
Enhanced rinse action through an additional rinse cycle together with decreased drum movement (improved fabric care). Ideal
when frequent washes are necessary, e. g. in cases of over-sensitive skin. An additional rinse cycle can also be permanently set
(see section “Setup”).
STAIN
For heavily soiled or stained washing. In-wash stain treatment
products are washed in at the optimum time as the programme
progresses.
NIGHT CYCLE
The washing is left to soak in the final rinse water. There is no final spin and no intermediate spin. Because of this the programme runs very quietly. NIGHT CYCLE is therefore particularly
suitable if you want to wash at night.

The washing is grey and there are limescale deposits in the drum
• Too little detergent was used.
• An incorrect detergent was used.
• Individual stains were not pre-treated.
• The programme or temperature was not set properly.
There are grey stains on the washing
• Items that were soiled with ointments, fats or oils were washed using
too little detergent.
• The wash temperature used was too low.
• A common cause is that conditioner – in particular the type in concentrated form - has come in contact with the washing. Wash out
such marks as soon as possible and exercise care when using the said
conditioner.
Foam can still be seen following the final rinse
• Modern detergents can cause foam to be created even during the final rinse. In spite of this, the washing has been sufficiently rinsed.
There are white residues on the washing
• What can be seen here are insoluble substances which modern detergents contain. They are not the result of insufficient rinsing.
Shake or brush the washing. If possible turn the washing inside out
before washing. Check your choice of detergent. Especially with dark
colours it is advisable to use liquid detergents.

In the case of a permanent connection it is necessary that you install a
double pole switch between the appliance and the electricity supply
(mains), with a minimum gap of 3mm between the switch contacts and
of a type suitable for the required load in compliance with the current
electrical regulations.
The switch must not break the yellow and green earth cable at any
point.
This appliance complies with the requirements laid out in the EEC Directive 76/899.
Voltage 240 V AC: Fuse rating 13amps
See rating plate for further information.
This appliance meets VDE requirements.
Particular regulations of local electricity authorities must be observed.
This appliance conforms to EEC Directive No. 82/499/EWG on radio interference.
WARNING! Repairs to electrical appliances must only be carried out by
trained personnel. Improper repairs may lead to serious risks for the user.
Connecting the appliance to the water
supply
Important:
• This appliance must not be connected to the hot water supply.
• When connecting the appliance, use only new hose kits.
• Only connect the appliance to the drinking water supply. Rain water
or water for industrial use may only be used if it fulfils the requirements of DIN1986 and DIN1988.
• Do not kink or crush the water inlet hose or drain hose.
Permitted water pressure
The water pressure must be at least 1 bar (=10N/cm2 =0.1MPa), and
may be a maximum of 10bar (=100N/cm2 =1MPa).
– If more than 10bar: Connect a pressure reduction valve.
– If less than 1bar: Disconnect the appliance end of the inlet hose from
the solenoid inlet valve and remove the flow meter. (In addition remove the filter using pointed pliers and take out the rubber gasket
behind it.) Replace the filter.
40
Water inlet
3
A 1.35m long pressure hose is supplied with the appliance.
If a longer inlet hose is required, only hoses from the manufacturer are
to be used. Your local Service Force stocks hose kits of different lengths.
Sealing rings are either inserted in the plastic nuts of the threaded hose
fitting or are included as spare parts. Do not use any other sealing
rings.
Important! All threaded hose fittings must only be tightened by
hand.
1. Connect the hose with the right-angle connector to the machine.
Important! Do not position the inlet
hose vertically downwards. Position
it to the right or the left as shown in
the illustration.
2. Connect the hose with the straight
connector to a water tap with an R
¾ (inch) screw thread.
3. Slowly turn on the tap and check
that all connections are watertight.
41
Water Drainage
The appliance drain hose should hook into a standpipe, the hook in the
drain hose is formed using the plastic “U-Piece“ supplied. The standpipe
should have an internal diameter of approximately 38 mm (see diagram) thus ensuring there is an air break between the drain hose and
standpipe.
Important! It is essential to lay the drainage hose without kinks.
When discharging into a standpipe ensure that the top of the
curve in the hose end is no more
than 90 cm (35.4’’) and no less
than 60 cm (23.6’’) above floor
level.
The upright standpipe should
have a minimum, length of 30 cm
(12’’) from the bottom of the elbow to the top of the pipe (see
diagram). Make sure that it is designed in such a way that the end
of the drain hose cannot be covered with water.
Longer drain hoses are available
in lengths of 2.7 and 4 metres
from your Service Force Centre.
For drainage into an outlet
spigot: If the outlet spigot has not
been used before, remove any blanking plug that may be in place. Push
the drain hose onto the spigot and
secure with a clip if required. Ensure
the drain hose is looped upwards to
prevent waste water from the sink
entering the washing machine.
Important! The end of the drainage hose must not be submerged in the
pumped-out water. Otherwise, the water could be sucked back into the
appliance.
42
Pumping heights of over 1 metre
The washing machine’s drain pump is able to pump water to a height of
1metre, calculated from the surface on which the appliance is installed.
Important! If pumping height is over 1 metre malfunctions and damage to the appliance may arise.
For pumping heights over 1metre a conversion kit can be obtained.
Please contact Service Force Centre.
