4.4.4 Connecting the water supply
C
A
1
2
The water supply pressure required to run the product is between 1 to 10 bars (0.1 – 1 MPa).
It is necessary to have 10 – 80 litres of water flowing from the fully open tap in one minute
to have your machine run smoothly. Attach a pressure reducing valve if the water pressure is
higher.
CAUTION: Models with a single water inlet should not be connected to the hot water tap.
In such a case the laundry will get damaged or the product will switch to protection mode and
will not operate.
CAUTION: Do not use old or used water inlet hoses on the new product. It may cause
stains on your laundry.
Tighten the nuts of the hose by hand. Never use a tool when tightening the nuts.
When hose connection is completed, check whether there are no leak problems at the
connection points by opening the taps fully. If any leaks occur, turn off the tap and
remove the nut. Retighten the nut carefully after checking the seal. In order to prevent
the water leaks and resultant damages, keep the taps closed when you do not use the
product.
4.4.5 Connecting the drain hose to the drain
• Attach the end of the drain hose directly to the waste water drain, lavatory or bathtub.
A
CAUTION: Your drain 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! In
order to prevent such situations and make sure that the machine performs water intake and
discharge processes without any problem, fix the drain hose securely.
• Connect the drain hose to a minimum height of 40 cm and a maximum height of 100 cm.
• In case the drain 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
14 / EN
Washing Machine /User’s Manual
40 cm
100 cm
laundry may come out excessively wet. Therefore, follow the heights described in the
figure.
• To prevent the waste water going back into the machine again and to ensure easy
drainage, do not immerse the end of the hose into the waste water or do not insert it
into the drain for 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 machine.
• If the length of the hose is too short, add 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 product must be fitted well with an
appropriate clamp as not to come off and/or leak.

• Put tablet detergents into the main wash compartment (compartment nr. "2") or directly
into the drum before washing.
Using starch
• Put the liquid soda, powder soda or the fabric dye into the softener compartment.
Do not use softener and starch together in a washing cycle.
• Wipe the inside of the product with a damp and clean cloth after using starch.
Using limescale remover
• When required, use limescale removers manufactured specifically for washing machines
only.
Using bleaches
Add the bleach at the beginning of the washing cycle by selecting a prewash
programme. 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
product 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 (1/2 tea glass - approx. 50 ml) of bleaching agent and rinse the
clothes very well as it causes skin irritation.
• Do not pour the bleach onto the laundry.
• Do not use it with the coloured items.
• When using oxygen-based whitener, select a programme which washes the laundry at a
low temperature.
• Oxygen-based whiteners can be used together with the detergent. However, if
its thickness is not the same with the detergent, put the detergent first into the
compartment nr. "2" in the detergent drawer and wait until the detergent flows while
the product is taking in water. While the machine continues taking in water, add
whitener in the same compartment.

4.6.3 Programme selection
1 Determine the programme suitable for the type, quantity and soiling level of the laundry
in accordance with the "4.6.2 Programme and consumption table".
C
Programmes are limited with the highest spin speed appropriate for that particular type of
fabric.
When selecting a programme, always consider the type of fabric, colour, degree of soiling and
permissible water temperature.
Always select the relevant lowest required temperature. Higher temperature means higher
power consumption.
2 Select the desired programme with the Programme Selection knob.
4.6.4 Programmes
• Cottons Eco
Use to wash your normally soiled, durable cotton and linen laundry. Although it washes
longer than all other programmes, it provides high energy and water savings. Actual
water temperature may be different from the stated wash temperature. When you load
the machine with less laundry (e.g. ½ capacity or less), periods in programme stages may
automatically get shorter. In this case, energy and water consumption will decrease more,
providing a more economic wash. This programme is available in the models with the
remaining time indicator.
• Cottons
Use for your cotton laundry (such as bed sheets, duvet and pillowcase sets, towels,
bathrobes, underwear, etc.). Your laundry will be washed with vigorous washing action for a
longer washing cycle.
• Synthetics
Use to wash your synthetic clothes (shirts, blouses, synthetic/cotton blends, etc.). It
washes with a gentle action and has a shorter washing cycle compared to the Cottons
programme.
For curtains and tulle, use the Synthetic 40˚C programme with prewash and anti-creasing
functions selected. As their meshed texture causes excessive foaming, wash the veils/
tulle by putting little amount of detergent into the main wash compartment. Do not put
detergent in the prewash compartment.
