Environmentally Friendly Waste Disposal
Disposing of the
packaging
The shipping package has protected your new washing machine on its
way to your home. All materials are ecologically harmless and recyclable.
Please contribute to a better environment by disposing of packaging
materials in an environmentally conscious manner.
Please ask your dealer or inquire at your local authorities about current
means of disposal.
Risk of choking!
Do not let children play with packaging and associated parts.
Risk of choking on plastic film and collapsible boxes.
Disposing of your
old appliance
Old appliances are not worthless rubbish. Environment-conscious
recycling can reclaim valuable new materials.
Danger of death!
Unplug mains plug on redundant appliances. Cut off mains cable and
discard with mains plug.
Destroy the lock on the door. To prevent playing children from becoming
trapped and endangered, ensure that the door locking mechanism is
disabled.
If you wish to discard this product, please contact your local authorities or
dealer and ask for the correct method of disposal.
Hints and Tips for Eco-Friendly Washing
■ Keep to the load limit of each program.
■ Your washing machine automatically adjusts the operating time and
amount of water of each program depending on the load.
■ You only need to use the PREWASH or INTENSIVE options if your
laundry is heavily soiled.
■ Add detergent according to the degree of soiling, laundry size and
water hardness, and follow the detergent manufacturer’s instructions.
■ Using the Cotton program with water temperature at 60ºC setting
instead of the Cotton program with water temperature at 90ºC will save
energy, and will remove ordinary stains. Better still, in areas where
the temperature is high, you can remove ordinary stains without using
hot water by setting ‘Cold’ programs for more ecologically friendly
operation.

■ Close zips, brush sand out of pockets and collars.
■ Brush pet hair out of laundries.
Sorting the
laundry
■ Sort the laundry according to the type of fabric and care label symbol
(cottons, mixed fibers, synthetics, wool, hand wash, etc.).

Before You Start Washing
Detergent and
additives
Washing with
different degrees
of soiling
■ Use the amount of detergent recommended on the detergent package.
The type and amount of detergent depends on the type of fabric, load
size, degree of soiling and hardness of the water used.
Use less detergent if :
- you wash a small load.
- the laundry is slightly soiled.
■ Too much detergent can result in excess foam formation which reduces
rinse efficiency or may cause a water leak.
■ Depending on the detergent brand, detergent may remain undissolved
when the water pressure is low, or when the water temperature is low.
Page 18 : Care and Maintenance (Cleaning the detergent dispenser).
■ Do not use liquid detergent when using the PREWASH option.
■ The detergent and any additives must be poured into the appropriate
dispenser.
Page 6 : Product Descriptions (Detergent Dispenser).
■ Pour in the detergent before you press the START/PAUSE button. If
you add the PREWASH option, pour detergent into both dispensers
(
) before starting.

Maintenance
of the washing
machine
■ External cleaning
Clean the surface of the washing machine with a soft cloth. Do not use
solvents such as alcohol or benzine.
■ Descaling
The water in some areas is hard and contains lime, so it is recommended
to use a water softening agent periodically, or use a descaler according
to the descaler manufacturers' instructions. Do this separately from any
laundry washing.
■ After each wash
Leave the door open for a while to dry the drum. This helps to prevent
the growth of mold and stagnant smells forming inside the washing
machine.
■ Maintenance wash
It is recommended to run the Tub Clean program regularly. Using this
program keeps the drum clean and prevents the growth of mold.

● Drain hose
■ The drain hose should be placed higher than 60 cm above and not
higher than 100 cm above the floor.
If the drain outlet is lower than 60 cm,
a joint pipe is necessary (additional
part, sold at a specialist outlet).
Secure the drain hose to prevent
from slipping out from joint pipe.
60~100 cm
Joint pipe
■ Do not bend, twist, crush or pull out, bend or step on the drain hose.
