• 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
be held responsible 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. Could endanger life!
5
General safety
• Repairs to the washing machine must only be carried out by qualified
service engineers.
• Never use the washing machine if the mains cable is damaged; or if
the control panel, work top or plinth area is damaged such that the
inside of the appliance is freely accessible.
• Switch off the washing machine before cleaning, maintenance and
servicing. In addition, pull the mains plug out of the socket or – in
the case of a permanent connection – switch off the cut-out in the
fuse box or remove the screw fuse completely.
• If operation is stopped, disconnect the appliance from the mains supply and shut off the water tap.
• Never unplug the appliance by pulling on the cable. Always pull the
plug.
• Multi-way plugs, connectors and extension cables must not be used.
This could constitute a fire hazard through overheating.
• Never wash the washing machine down with a water jet. Danger of

into the washing machine.
This closes the water container when the next programme is started
and the economy valve can function properly.
3. 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:
(COTTONS/LINEN) 95, add 1/4 of a measuring cup of washing powder.
Preparing and sorting washing
Preparing washing
• Empty 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 sensitive and small items in a net or a pillow case, e.g. net curtains, tights, 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 care symbol G (= do not wash!)
in the washing machine.

For USA and Canada only!
Important! Only LOW-SUDSING detergent suitable for a front-loading
washing machine can be used in this machine. This machine can heat
the water up to 95 degrees celsius, or 200 degrees fahrenheit, and care
should be taken to ensure that the correct washing powder is used. If
you have any doubt, check with your dealer or the distributor.
WARRANTY AND CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES ARE VOIDED IF A LOW
SUDSING DETERGENT IS NOT USED.
Dose detergent and additives according to the instructions of the detergent and additive manufacturers. Follow the advice on the packaging.
11
Dosing depends upon:
– the washing’s degree of soiling,
– the size of the load
– the degree of hardness of the water supply.
• If the manufacturer does not give instructions for small loads: for a
half load, use a third less, for a very small load, use only half of the
detergent that is recommended for a full load.
• From water hardness 2 (= medium) upwards, water softener should
be used. Detergent can then always be dosed for water hardness 1
(= soft). Your local water company will be able to give you information about the water hardness in your area.
1. Pull the detergent dispenser drawer out as far as the stop.
2. Add the detergent/additives.
3. Push the drawer in fully.

• Special soiling was not pre-treated.
• Programme or temperature was not correctly set.
There are grey stains on the washing.
• Washing soiled with ointment, grease or oil was washed with too little detergent.
• It was washed at too low a temperature.
• A common cause is that fabric conditioner – especially a concentrate
– has got onto the washing. Such stains should be washed out as
quickly as possible and make sure that you are careful when using
fabric conditioner.
After the last rinse foam can still be seen.
• Modern detergents may create foam even in the last rinse cycle. The
washing is however sufficiently rinsed.
There are white residues on the washing.
• This is due to the insoluble ingredients in modern detergents.
They are not caused by 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.

Carrying out an emergency drain
1
Warning! Before emergency draining, switch off the washing machine
and remove the mains plug from the socket.
Warning! The water that comes out of the emergency drain hose may
be hot. There is a risk of scalding. Let the water cool before performing
an emergency drain.
1. Open the plinth flap and remove it.
2. Take out the emergency drain hose.
3. Place a shallow container underneath it. Then loosen the drain plug
by turning it in an anti-clockwise
direction and pull it out.
4. The water runs out. If it is necessary
to empty the container more than
once, seal up the emergency drain
hose with the drain plug while you
are doing so.
When the water has all drained away:
5. Push the drain plug firmly into the emergency drain hose and screw it
tight in a clockwise direction.
6. Place the emergency drain hose back in the support.
7. Insert the plinth flap and close it.

Drain pump
1
The drain pump is maintenance-free. It is only necessary to open the
pump cover if there is a malfunction and water is no longer being
pumped out, e. g. if the pump wheel is blocked.
Please make sure before loading the washing that there are no foreign
bodies in the pockets or caught between the washing. Paperclips, nails,
etc. that may have got into the washing machine with the washing remain in the pump housing (foreign body trap that protects the pump
wheel).
Warning! Before opening the pump cover, switch off the washing machine and remove the mains plug from the socket.
1. First carry out an emergency drain.
2. Place a cloth on the floor in front of the drain pump cover.

4. Remove foreign bodies and fluff
from the pump housing and from
the pump wheel.
5. Check whether the pump wheel
right at the back of the pump housing can turn. (It is normal for the
pumping wheel to turn jerkily.) If
the pumping wheel cannot be
turned, please contact the Customer
Care Department.
6. Insert the pump cover. Insert the
guides at the sides of the cover into
the guide slots and tighten the cover by turning in a clockwise
direction.

The water pressure must be at least 1bar (=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.) Re-insert the filter.
Water inlet
Attention!
• An inlet hose is supplied and can be found inside the machine drum.
• Do not use the hose from your previous machine to connect to
the water supply.
• This appliance must be connected to a cold water supply.
30
1. Open the porthole and extract the inlet hose.
2. Connect the hose with the angled
connection to the machine.
Important!
Do not place the inlet hose downwards. Angle the hose to the left
or right depending on the position
of your water tap.
3. Set the hose correctly by loosening
the ring nut. After positioning the
inlet hose, be sure to tighten the
ring nut again to prevent leaks.
4. Connect the hose to a tap with a
3/4” thread.
Always use the hose supplied with
the appliance.
Installation should comply with local
water authority and building regulations’ requirements.
A minimum water pressure of 0.05
MPa (0.5 bar) is required for safe operation of the appliance.
If you cannot make the cold water
connection direct from the rising mains, you may be able to operate
the appliance from your cold water storage system.
There should be a minimum distance of 5.02m (16.5 ft) between the
appliance’s inlet and the bottom of the water storage tank.
Aqua Control
The inlet hose is provided with a water stop device, which protects
against damage caused by water
leaks in the hose which could develop due to natural ageing of the
hose. This fault is shown by a red
sector in the window „A”. Should this
occur, turn the water tap off and refer to your Service Centre to replace
the hose.
31
Water drainage
The maximum permitted difference between the height of the surface
on which the appliance is installed and the water outlet is 1 metre.
Only original hoses may be used to extend hoses. (A maximum of 3 m
laid on the floor and then 80 cm vertically). The Customer Care Department stocks outlet hoses of different lengths.
Draining water into a sink outlet

Draining water into a wash basin/bath
Important!
– Small basins are not suitable. Water may overflow.
– The end of the drain hose must
not be in the water that has been
pumped out. Otherwise water
could be sucked back into the appliance.
– When draining into a wash basin
or a bath, secure the drain hose
with the supplied elbow to stop it
slipping. Otherwise the water running out can force the hose out of
the basin.
– When pumping the water out,
check that the water is running
away fast enough.
Pumping heights over 1 m
The washing machine’s drain pump is able to pump water to a height of
1meter, calculated from the surface on which the appliance is installed.
