A - FOR THE USER
WARNINGS
Keep this user’s manual with your washing machine. If you sell your
washing machine or give it away, make sure that it is accompanied by
its user’s manual. The new user can then be informed of how the
washing machine operates and read relevant warnings.
These warnings have been written for your safety and for the safety
of others. Please read these comments carefully before installing
and using your washing machine. Thank you for your attention.

• When you receive your washing machine, unpack it or have it
unpacked immediately. Check its general appearance. Make any
reserves in writing on the delivery form and keep a copy.
• Your washing machine was designed for use by adults. Make sure
that children do not touch it or use it as a toy.
• Do not modify or attempt to modify the characteristics of this
washing machine. This could be dangerous for you.
• Your washing machine is intended for normal domestic use. Do not
use it for commercial or industrial purposes of for any purpose
other than that for which it was designed : to wash, to rince and to

time after using your washing machine.
• Only wash articles that can resist machine washing. Refer to the
instructions on the label for each article.
• Do not wash underwear with bones, or any material without hems,
or torn materials in your washing machine.
4
User information
• Remember to remove all coins, safety pins, boraches, screws, etc.,
before each wash. They can cause serious damage if they are left
in your washing.
• Do not put articles in your washing machine if you have used a
solvent, alcohol, trichloroethylene, etc., to remove stains from
them. If you must use these stain removers, wait until the product has evaporated before putting the articles in the drum.
• Collect all small articles such as socks, belts, etc., in a small cloth
bag or pillow case.
• Use the quantity of detergent indicated in the «proportioning of
detergents» section.
• Always unplug the washing machine before cleaning it and doing
any maintenance.
Precautions against frost
If your washing machine is exposed to temperatures below 0°C, take
the following precautions :
• Close the tap and disconnect the water supply pipe.
• Put the end of this pipe and the drain pipe into a bowl on the
floor.
• Select the «Drain» programme and make sure it works until it is
complete.
• Switch the washing machine off by putting the program selector
to the «Off»* position or pressing on the «On/Off»* key.
• Unplug the washing machine.
• Screw in the water inlet pipe and install the drain pipe.
*depending on model
5
User information
Water that remained in the pipes will then be evacuated, thus
preventing the formation of frost or ice that can damage your washing
machine.
The next time you want to use your washing machine, make sure that
it is installed in a room in which the temperature is above 0°C.
Scrapping
All materials marked with the
symbol can be recycled. Put them in
a waste tip (ask for information from your municipal offices) so that
they can be recovered and recycled.
When you take your washing machine to the tip, make sure that
everything that could be dangerous is out of service ; cut the power
supply cable flush with the surface of your washing machine.
Protection of the environment
We recommend that the following instructions should be followed to
achieve savings in water and energy and therefore to contribute to
protection of the environment:
• If possible, use the washing machine at full capacity rather than
with partial loads (however, do not overload the drum).
• Only use the Prewash or Soak function for very dirty washing.
• Use a detergent dose adapted to the water hardness (see «proportioning of detergents» section) and to the amount of washing and
how dirty it is.

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). This is ideal when
frequent washes are necessary, for example, in cases of highly
sensitive skin. An additional rinse cycle can also be permanently set
(see section “Setup”).
Stain
For heavily soiled and 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 tis the programme runs
very quietly. NIGHT CYCLE is therefore particularly suitable if you
want to wash at night.
Setup
The special functions that can be set under Setup remain permanently
stored in the appliance, e. g., time, language, etc. (see section “Setup”)
until they are changed or deactivated.

Washing guide
Sorting and preparing your washing
• Sort the washing by type and care symbol (see chapter 5.4: International symbols for care of textiles): normal wash for strong
washing that can resist energetic wash and spin; delicate wash
for delicate washing that should be treated more carefully. For
mixed loads composed of articles of different types of fibers,
choose a program and temperature suitable for the most fragile
fiber.
• Wash white washing and color washing separately. Otherwise,
the white washing may be colored or look gray.
• New clothes very often have too much color. Preferably wash
new clothes separately for the first time. Respect "wash separately" and "wash several times separately" care instructions.
• Empty pockets and spread out the washing.
• Take off all loose buttons, pins and hooks and eyes. Close zip fasteners, tie knots in laces and straps.
• Turn clothes made of several layers of textiles (sleeping bags,
anoraks, etc.), colored hosiery and wool and textiles with add-on
decorations, inside out.
• Wash small delicate items (socks, tights, bras, etc) in a washing
net.
• Treat curtains with special care. Remove curtain hooks and put
net curtains in a net bag or a sachet.
Washing load depending on the nature of the material
The quantity of washing that you put in your drum must not exceed
the maximum capacity of your washing machine. This capacity may
vary depending on the nature of your textiles. Reduce the quantity
of washing if it is very dirty or if you have terry cloth type materials.
Not all textiles have the same volume and the same water retention
capacity. This is why in general the drum should be filled:
• completely, but without excessive pressure for cotton and linen,
and for mixed washe,
• half full for treated cottons and synthetic fibers,
23
User information
• about one third full for very delicate articles such as net curtains
and wool.
For a mixed wash, fill the drum as required for the most delicate
material.
Detergents and additives
Only use detergents and additives suitable for use in a washing
machine. Read the manufacturer's instructions and respect sections
about detergents dispenser and detergents.
Powder detergents can be used without restriction; liquid detergents
should be poured either in the proportioning bowl directly in the drum,
or in the wash compartment provided that the washing machine is
started immediately; detergents in tablets or doses must be put into
the wash compartment of the detergents dispenser in your washing
machine.
The quantity of detergent to be used depends on the amount of
washing to be washed, the hardness of the water and how dirty the
washing is.
If the water is soft, you can reduce the doses slightly. Increase the
doses slightly if the water is hard (it is recommended to use a water
softener) or if the washing is very dirty or stained.
You can ask the water distribution company in your region or any
other competent authority to find out the degree of hardness of your
water.
