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.

Packaging material
The packaging materials are environmentally friendly and can be recycled. The plastic components are identified by markings, e.g. >PE<,
>PS<, etc. Please dispose of the packaging materials in the appropriate
container at your local waste disposal facilities.
Old appliance
Please dispose of your old appliance in line with the guidelines for disposal in your area.
Warning: When your appliance has finished its working life, remove

Setting the time
So that the current time and the end of the programme are correctly
displayed, please check the display and set the current time, if necessary. (See “Setting extra options: Timer”.)
Carrying out a wash programme prior to first use
Before doing your first wash, run a washing cycle without any washing
in the machine (programme LINEN/EASY-C. 60°, option TIME SAVING/
VERY QUICK, use approx. 1/4 measuring cup of washing powder).
This will remove any residues from the drum and water container which
have been left as a result of the production process.
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.

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.

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.

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.
40
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.
