Placing laundry into the drum
: Warning
Risk of death!
Items of laundry pretreated with
cleaning agents that contain solvents,
e.g. stain remover/cleaning solvent,
may cause an explosion after being
loaded into the washing machine.
Hand-rinse these items of laundry
thoroughly beforehand.
Notes
Mix items of laundry of varying sizes.
Laundry items of different sizes
distribute themselves better during
the spin cycle. Individual laundry
items may cause an unbalanced
load.
■
Observe the maximum indicated
load. Overfilling adversely affects the
washing result and encourages
creasing.
■
1. Unfold pre-sorted items of laundry
before placing them in the washing
drum.
2. Make sure that no items of laundry
are trapped between the washing
machine door and the rubber seal,
and close the door.

Notes
Do not leave any items of laundry in
the drum. They may shrink in the
next wash or discolour another item.
■
Remove any foreign objects from the
drum and the rubber seal – risk of
rusting.
■

H Sensors
Automatic load sensing
sroSne
The automatic load sensing function
optimally adjusts the water consumption
to each programme depending on the
type of fabric and the load.
Unbalanced load detection
system
The automatic unbalanced load
detection system detects imbalances
and ensures even distribution of the
laundry by repeatedly starting and
stopping drum spinning.
If the laundry is extremely unevenly
distributed, the speed is reduced or the
spin cycle is not performed for safety
reasons.
Note: Place large and small items of
laundry in the drum (from ~ Page 24).

Detergent solution pump
blocked
: Warning
Risk of scalding!
When washing at high temperatures, the
detergent solution becomes hot. If you
come into contact with the hot detergent
solution, you may be scalded.
Allow the detergent solution to cool
down.
1. Turn off the water tap so that no
more water can flow in and has to be
drained via the detergent solution
pump.
2. Switch off the appliance. Pull out the
mains plug.
3. Open and remove the service flap.
4. For models:
– With a drainage hose: Remove
the drainage hose from its holder
and remove the sealing cap.
Allow the detergent solution to
flow out into a suitable container.
Replace the sealing cap on the
drainage hose, and place the
drainage hose back in its holder.
en
– Without a drainage hose::
Carefully unscrew the pump
cover until the detergent solution
begins to flow out.
When the service flap is half full,
close the pump cover and drain
the service flap.
Repeat the above steps until all
the detergent solution has
completely drained out.
5. Carefully unscrew the pump cover;
residual water may leak out.
Clean the interior, pump-cover
thread and pump housing. The
impeller in the detergent solution
pump must be able to rotate.
Refit and screw on the pump cover.
The handle must be in a vertical
position.
6. Put the service flap back on, lock it
into place and close it.
Note: To prevent unused detergent
from flowing straight into the drain
during the next wash: Pour 1 litre of
water into compartment II and start the
Empty programme.

Caution!
Water damage
The connection points for the water
supply hose and water drain hose are
under high water pressure. To prevent
leaks and water damage, you must
follow the instructions in this section.
Observe the following when connecting
the machine:
Notes
■
In addition to the information listed
here, the local water and electricity
supplier may have special
requirements.
■
Only operate the washing machine
using cold mains water.
■
Do not connect the washing
machine to the mixer tap of an
unpressurised hot-water boiler.
■
Do not use a used supply hose. Only
use the supply hose supplied or one
that was purchased from an
authorised specialist retailer.
■
If in doubt, have the appliance
connected by a technician.
Optimum water pressure in the supply
network
At least 100 kPa (1 bar)
Maximum 1000 kPa (10 bar)
■
■
When the tap is open, the water flow
rate is at least 8 l/min.
If the water pressure is higher than
this, a pressure-reducing valve must
be installed.

Caution!
Damage to the appliance/fabrics
If the end of the drain hose is
immersed in the drained water, water
may be sucked back into the
appliance and may damage the
appliance/fabrics.
Make sure that:
– The plug does not block drainage
from the wash basin.
– The end of the drain hose is not
immersed in the drained water.
– The water drains away quickly
enough.
Carefully turn the tap on, and check that
the connection points are not leaking.
Note: The screw connection is under
mains water pressure.
Water outlet
Caution!
Water damage
If the drain hose slips out of the
washbasin or the connection point
during draining due to high water
pressure, any escaping water may
cause water damage.
Secure the drain hose so that it cannot
slip out.
Notes
■
Do not kink the water drain hose or
stretch it lengthways.

Incorrect alignment may result in loud
noises, vibrations and machine
"movement".
1. Loosen the lock nuts using a
spanner, turning it in a clockwise
direction.
2. Check the alignment of the washing
machine with a spirit level, and
adjust it if necessary. Change the
height by turning the appliance feet.
All four appliance feet must stand
firmly on the ground.
