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.
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.
5
• 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.

• 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.

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.

out an emergency drain”).
Observe the maximum load
volume.
If the wash result is not satisfactory
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.
20
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 selection of detergent and perhaps use
liquid detergent instead.
Carrying out an emergency drain
1
Warning! Prior to carrying out an emergency drain, switch off the
washing machine and remove the power plug from the power point.
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. Remove 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 will run 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. Insert the plug firmly into the emergency drain hose and turn it in a
clockwise direction until it is firmly in place.
6. Replace the emergency drain hose into the retainer.
7. Insert the plinth flap into place and close it.
21
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.
Before loading the machine, please always ensure that there are no foreign bodies present in the pockets or in between the items to be
washed. Paper clips, nails, etc. which may find their way into the washing machine along with the washing will remain in the drain pump
housing (foreign body trap that protects the pump wheel).
Warning! Before opening the cover of the drain pump, switch off the
washing machine and remove the power plug from the power point.
1. First carry out an emergency drain.
2. Place a cloth on the floor in front of the cover of the drain pump.
Residual water runs out.
3. Unscrew the pump cover in an anticlockwise direction and remove it.
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. (If the wheel rotates
with a jerky motion, this is normal.)
If the pumping wheel cannot be
turned, please contact your local
Service Force Centre..
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.
7. Close off the emergency drain hose
and place it in the retainer.

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.
32
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.
