Open the tap completely after connecting the hose connection to check for water leaks at the connection
points. If any leaks occur, turn off the tap and remove the nut. Retighten the nut carefully after checking the
seal. To prevent water leakages and damages, keep the taps closed when the appliance is not in use.
Connecting to the draining hose

The end of the draining hose must be directly connected to the wastewater drain or the washbasin.
Warning: The house will be flooded if the hose comes out of its housing during water discharge.
Moreover, there is risk of scalding due to high washing temperatures!
To prevent such situations and to ensure smooth water intake and discharge of the appliance, fix the
end of the discharge hose tightly so that it cannot come out.

The hose should be attached to a height of at least 40 cm, and 100 cm at
most.

In case the hose is elevated after laying it on the floor level or close to
the ground (less than 40 cm above the ground), water discharge
becomes more difficult and the laundry may come out excessively wet.
Therefore, follow the heights described in the figure.

To prevent flowing of dirty water back into the washer and to allow for easy discharge, do not immerse the
hose end into the dirty water or do not drive it in the drain more than 15 cm. If it is too long, cut it short.

The end of the hose should not be bent, it should not be stepped on and the hose must not be pinched
between the drain and the appliance.

If the length of the hose is too short, use it by adding an original extension hose. Length of the hose may not
be longer than 3.2 m. To avoid water leak failures, the connection between the extension hose and the drain
hose of the appliance must be fitted well with an appropriate clamp as not to come off.


Wash the delicate clothes only with special detergents (liquid detergent, wool shampoo, etc.) used solely for
delicate clothes.

When washing dark coloured clothes and quilts, it is recommended to use liquid detergent.

Wash wools with special detergent made specifically for wools.
Warning: Use only detergents manufactured specifically for washing machines.
Warning: Do not use soap powder.
Adjusting detergent amount
The amount of washing detergent to be used depends on the amount of laundry, the degree of soiling and water
hardness.

Do not use amounts exceeding the dosage quantities recommended on the detergent package to avoid
problems of excessive foam, poor rinsing, financial savings and finally, environmental protection.

Use lesser detergent for small amounts or lightly soiled clothes.
Using softeners
Pour the softener into the softener compartment of the detergent drawer.

Do not exceed the maximum level marking in the softener compartment.

If the softener has lost its fluidity, dilute it with water before putting it in the detergent drawer.
Using liquid detergents

Do not use liquid detergent for the prewash in a programme with prewash.

Liquid detergent stains the clothes when used with time delay function. If use the time delay function, do
not use liquid detergent.
Using bleaches

Select a programme with prewash and add the bleaching agent at the beginning of the prewash. Do not put
detergent in the prewash compartment. As an alternative application, select a programme with extra rinse
and add the bleaching agent while the appliance is taking water from the detergent compartment during first
rinsing step.

Do not use bleaching agent and detergent by mixing them.

Use just a little amount (approximate 50 ml) of bleaching agent and rinse the clothes very well as it causes
skin irritation. Do not pour the bleaching agent onto the clothes and do not use it for coloured clothes.

When using oxygen based bleaches, select a programme that washes at a lower temperature.

MAINTENANCE INSTRUCTION
Service life of the appliance extends and frequently faced problems decrease if cleaned at regular intervals.
Cleaning the detergent drawer
Clean the detergent drawer at regular intervals (every 4-5 washing cycles) as shown below in order to prevent
accumulation of powder detergent in time.
1.
Press the dotted point on the siphon in the softener compartment and pull towards until the compartment is
removed from the washer.
If more than normal amount of water and softener mixture starts to gather in the softener compartment,
the siphon must be cleaned.
2.
Wash the detergent drawer and the siphon with plenty of lukewarm water in a washbasin. Wear protective
gloves or use an appropriate brush to avoid touching the residues in the drawer with the skin when cleaning.
3.
Insert the drawer back into its place after cleaning and make sure that it is seated well.
If your detergent drawer is the one indicated in the following figure:
Lift the rear part of the siphon to remove it as illustrated. After performing the above mentioned
cleaning procedures, replace the siphon back to its seating and push its front section downwards to
make sure that the locking tab engages.
17
Cleaning the loading door and the drum
Residues of softener, detergent and dirt may accumulate in the washer in time and may cause unpleasant odours
and washing complaints. To avoid this, use the Cotton 90°C programme with Rinse Plus auxiliary functions to
clean the drum. Run the programme without any laundry in the appliance. Before starting the programme, put
maximum 100g of powder anti-limescale into the main wash detergent compartment (compartment 2). If the
anti-limescale is in tablet form, put only one tablet into compartment 2. Dry the inside of the bellow with a clean
piece of cloth after the programme has come to an end.
Repeat Drum Cleaning process in every 2 months.
Use an anti-limescale suitable for the washing machines.
Make sure that no foreign substance is left in the drum after every wash.
If the holes on the bellow shown in the figure is blocked, open the holes using a toothpick.
Foreign metal substances will cause rust stains in the drum. Clean the stains on
the drum surface by using cleaning agents for stainless steel. Never use steel
wool or wire wool.
Warning: Never use sponge or scrub materials. These will damage the painted
and plastic surfaces.
Cleaning the body and control panel
Wipe the body of the appliance with soapy water or non-corrosive mild gel detergents as necessary, and dry
with a soft cloth.
Use only a soft and damp cloth to clean the control panel.
Cleaning the water intake filters
There is a filter at the end of each water intake valve at the rear of the washer and also at the end of each water
supply hose where they are connected to the tap. These filters prevent foreign substances and dirt in the water to
enter the washing machine. Filters should be cleaned as they get dirty.
1.
Close the taps.
2.
Remove the nuts of the water intake hoses to access the filters on the water intake valves. Clean them with
an appropriate brush. If the filters are too dirty, take them out by means of pliers and clean them.
3.
Take out the filters on the flat ends of the water intake hoses together with the gaskets and clean thoroughly
under running water.
4.
Replace the gaskets and filters carefully in their places and tighten the hose nuts by hand.
Draining remaining water and cleaning the pump filter
The filter system in the washer prevents solid items such as buttons, coins and fabric fibers clogging the pump
impeller during discharge of washing water. Thus, the water will be discharged without any problem and the
service life of the pump will extend.
The pump filter may be clogged if the washer fails to drain water,. Filter must be cleaned whenever it is clogged
or in every 3 months. Water must be drained off first to clean the pump filter.
18
In addition, prior to transporting the appliance (e.g., when moving to another house) and in case of freezing of
the water, water may have to be drained completely.
Warning: Foreign substances left in the pump filter may damage the appliance or may cause noise
problem.
In order to clean the dirty filter and discharge the water:
1.
Unplug the appliance to cut off the supply power.
Warning: Temperature of the water inside the appliance may rise up to 90 ºC. To avoid burning risk,
filter must be cleaned after the water in the appliance cools down.
2.
Open the filter cover.
Press the tab on the filter cover downwards and pull the piece out towards.
Remove the filter cover by slightly pushing downwards with a thin plastic tipped tool, through the gap
above the filter cover. Do not use metal tipped tools to remove the cover.
3.
Follow the below steps to discharge the water.
a)
Place a large container in front of the filter to catch water from the filter.
b) Loosen the pump filter (anticlockwise) until water starts to flow. Fill the flowing water into the
container which placed in front of the filter. Always keep a piece of cloth handy to absorb any spilled
water.
c)
When the water inside the appliance is finished draining, take out the filter completely by turning it.
4.
Clean any residues inside the filter as well as fibers, if any, around the pump impeller region.
5.
Install the filter.
6.
Close the filter cover by pressing on the tab.
