PRECAUTIONS AND GENERAL
RECOMMENDATIONS
1.Packaging
4.Energy saving tips
• The packaging material is entirely recyclable, and
marked with the recycling symbol
. Adhere
to current local regulations when disposing of
packaging material.
• Achieve the best use of energy, water, detergent
and time by using the recommended maximum
load size.
• Do not exceed the detergent dosages indicated
in the manufacturer’s instructions.
• The Eco-Ball - a special system in the outlet - will
prevent detergent loss from the drum to avoid
detergent loss into the environment.
• Use “Prewash” for heavily soiled laundry only!
Save detergent, time, water and energy
consumption by not selecting “Prewash” for
slight to normally soiled laundry.
• Pretreat stains with stain remover or soak drued
in stains in water before washing to reduce the
necessity of a hot wash programme.
• Save energy by using a 60° C instead of a 95° C
wash programme or a 40° C instead of a 60° C
wash programme.

PREPARATION OF THE WASHING
1.Sort the laundry according to...
Stain removal
• Type of fabric / care label symbol
Cottons, mixed fibres, easy care/synthetics, wool,
handwash items.
• Colour
Separate coloured and white items. Wash new
coloured articles separately.
• Loading
Wash items of different sizes in the same load to
improve washing efficiency and distribution in the drum.
• Delicates
Wash small items (e.g. nylon stockings, belts etc.)
and items with hooks (e.g. bras) in a cloth bag or
pillow case with zip. Always remove curtain rings or
wash curtains with the rings inside a cotton bag.
• Blood, milk, eggs etc. are generally removed by the
automatic enzyme phase of the programme.
• To remove red wine, coffee, tea, grass and fruit
stains etc. add a stain remover to the main wash
chamber
of the detergent dispenser.
• Pre-treat heavily-soiled areas with stain remover if
necessary.
2.Empty all pockets
Coins, safety pins etc. can damage your laundry as
well as the appliance drum and tub.
3.Fasteners
Close zips and fasten buttons or hooks; loose belts
or ribbons should be tied together.
Dyeing
• Only use dyes that are suitable for washing machines.
• Follow the Manufacturer’s instructions.
• Plastic and rubber parts of the washing machine can
be stained by dyes.
Loading the laundry
1. Open the door.
2. Load the articles one at a time loosely into the
drum, without overfilling. Observe the load sizes
given in the quick reference guide.
Note: overloading the machine will result in
unsatisfactory washing results and creased laundry
3. Close the door.
DETERGENTS AND ADDITIVES
The choice of detergent depends on:
Dosage
• type of fabric (cottons, easy care/synthetics, delicate
items, wool).
Note: Use only specific detergents for washing wool
• colour
• the wash temperature
• degree and type of soiling
Remarks:
Any whitish residues on dark fabrics are caused by
insoluble compounds used in modern phosphate-free
powder detergents. If this occurs, shake or brush out
the fabric or use liquid detergents.
Use only detergents and additives specifically
produced for domestic washing machines.
When using descaling agents, dyes or bleaches for the
pre-wash, make sure that they are suitable for use in
domestic washing machines. Descalers could contain
products which could damage your washing machine.
Do not use any solvents (e.g. turpentine, benzine). Do
not machine wash fabrics that have been treated with
solvents or flammable liquids.
Follow the dosage recommendations on the detergent
pack. They depend on:
• degree and type of soiling
• size of wash
follow the detergent manufacturer’s instructions for
a full load;
half load: 3/4 the amount used for a full load;
Minimum load (about 1 kg):
1/2 the amount used for a full load
• water hardness in your area (ask for information
from your water company). Soft water requires less
detergent than hard water (refer to the water
hardness table in the operating instructions).
Notes:
Too much detergent can result in excess foam
formation, which reduces washing efficiency.
If the washing machine detects too much foam, it may
prevent spinning.
Insufficient detergent may result in grey laundry in time
and also calcifies the heating system, drum and hoses.

TROUBLESHOOTING GUIDE
Depending on the model, your washing machine is
equipped with various automatic safety functions.
This enables faults to be detected in good time and
the safety system can react appropriately. These
faults are frequently so minor that they can be
removed within a few minutes.
The washing machine will not start, no
indicator lamps are on.
Check whether:
• the mains plug is inserted into the socket;
• the wall socket is functioning correctly (use a
table lamp or similar appliance to test it).
The washing machine will not start... and the
“Start/Pause” indicator lamp flashes.
Check whether:
• the door is properly closed (child safety);
• the “Start/Pause” button has been pressed;
• the “Water tap closed” indication lights up. Open
the water tap and press the “Start/Pause” button.
The appliance stops during the programme
(varies depending on model)
Check whether:
• the “Rinse Hold” indicator lamp lights up;
terminate this option by pressing the
“Start/Pause” button or by choosing and
starting the “Drain” programme;
• another programme has been selected and the
“Start/Pause” indicator lamp is flashing.
Reselect the desired programme and press the
“Start/Pause” button.
• the door has been opened and the “Start/
Pause” indicator lamp is flashing. Close the door
and press the “Start/Pause” button again.
• the washing machine’s safety system has been
activated (see “Fault description table”).
Residue from detergent and additives left in
the detergent drawer at end of wash.
Check whether:
• the cover grid of the softener chamber and the
separator of the main wash chamber are
correctly installed in the detergent dispenser and
all parts are clean (see “Care And Maintenance”);
• sufficient water is entering.
The mesh filters of the water supply could be
blocked (see “Care And Maintenance”);
• the position of the separator in the main wash
chamber is adapted to the use of powder or
liquid detergent (see “Detergent and Additives”).
Machine vibrates during spin cycle.
Check whether:
• the washing machine is level and standing firmly
on all four feet;
• the transport bolts have been removed. Before
using the machine, it is imperative that the
transport bolts are removed.
Final spin results are poor.
The washing machine has an imbalance detection
and correction system.
If individual heavy items are loaded (e.g. bathrobes),
this system may reduce the spin speed
automatically or even interrupt the spin completely
if it detects too great an imbalance even after
several spin starts, in order to protect the washing
machine.
• If the laundry is still too wet at the end of the
cycle, add smaller articles of laundry and repeat
the spin cycle.
• Excessive foam formation may prevent spinning.
Use the correct amount of detergent.
• Check that the spin speed selector has not been
set to “0”.
If your washing machine has a time display:
the programme time initially displayed is
lengthened / shortened by a period of time:
This is a normal capacity of the washing machine to
adapt to factors that can have an effect on the wash
programme time, e.g.:
• excess foam formation;
• load imbalance due to heavy items of laundry;
• prolonged heating time due to reduced inlet
water temperature;
Because of influences like these, the time remaining
in the programme run is recalculated, and updated
if necessary. In addition, during the filling phase, the
washing machine determines the load and if
necessary adjusts the initial programme time
displayed accordingly. During such update periods,
an animation appears on the time display.
