Operating Instructions
1 Safety
The safety aspects of our electrical appliances comply with accepted technical standards and the German Appliance Safety Law. Nevertheless, as a
manufacturer we consider it our obligation to make
you aware of the following safety instructions.
Prior to using the appliance for the
first time
• Follow the “Installation and connection instructions” further on in this user manual.
• In the event that the appliance is delivered in the
winter months with below-zero temperatures:
Store the washing machine at room temperature
for 24 hours prior to using it for the first time.
Correct use
• The washing machine is intended for household
use in washing normal household items. If the
appliance is used for other purposes, or is used
incorrectly, the manufacturer cannot accept any
liability for any damage caused.
• Additions or modifications to the dishwasher are
not permitted for safety reasons.
• Use only detergents that are suitable for washing
machines. Follow the instructions provided by the
manufacturer.
• The washing must not contain any flammable solvent. Ensure this is the case even when washing
pre-cleaned items.
• The washing machine must not be used for
chemical cleaning.
• Dying and stripping agents may only be used in
the washing machine if the manufacturer of these
products expressly allows it. We cannot accept
liability for possible damages.
• Use only water from the water supply. Use rainwater or processing water only if it fulfils the
requirements of DIN1986 and DIN1988.
• Frost damage is not covered under the warranty.
If the washing machine is placed in a room which
is at risk of frosting up, in the event that there is a
risk of frost an emergency emptying procedure
must be performed (see section “Carrying out an
emergency emptying procedure”).
Child safety
• Packaging materials (e.g. film, styrofoam) can be
dangerous to children. A risk of suffocation exists.
Keep packaging away from children.
• Children often do not recognise the hazards
associated with the use of electrical appliances. It
is therefore important you ensure that children are
adequately supervised while the washing
machine is operating and that you do not allow
children to play with the washing machine, as
there is a risk that children can shut themselves
inside the appliance.
• Ensure that children and small animals do not
climb into the washing machine drum.
• When disposing of the washing machine: Disconnect the power plug from the mains, break the
door lock, cut off the mains cable and dispose of
the plug and remainder of the cable. This will prevent children playing with the appliance from
shutting themselves inside and putting their lives
at risk.
General safety
• Repairs to the washing machine may only be carried out by technicians. Considerable dangers
can arise as the result of improper repairs being
carried out. Should the appliance be in need of
repair, contact our Customer Service or your specialist dealer.
• Never use the appliance when the electricity cord
is damaged or the control panel, worktop or base
area are damaged to such an extent that the
inside of the appliance is openly accessible.
• Switch off the washing machine prior to cleaning
it and carrying out maintenance. In addition,
remove the power plug from the power point or –
if the appliance has been hard-wired – switch off
the LS switch in the fuse box or completely
unscrew the screw-retaining device.
• If you do not intend to use the appliance for a
period of time, disconnect the appliance from the
mains supply and turn off the tap.
• Never remove the power plug from the power
point by pulling on the cord; pull the power plug
itself.
• Manifold-plugs, connectors and extension cords
must not be used. Resulting overheating may
constitute a fire hazard.
• Do not spray the washing machine with a stream
of water. A risk of electrocution exists.
5
• When using wash programmes with high temperatures the glass in the loading door will become
hot. Do not touch it!
• Prior to carrying out an emergency emptying procedure or cleaning the drain pump, allow the
wash water to cool down.
2 Disposal
Dispose of the packaging material.
Dispose of your washing machine’s packaging properly. All the packaging materials used are harmless to
the environment and can be recycled.
• Plastic parts are marked with standard international abbreviations:
>PE<
for polyethylene, e.g. sheet wrapping
material
>PS< PS for polystyrene, e.g. padding material
(always CFC-free)
>POM< POM for polyoxymethylene, e.g. plastic
clips
• Cardboard packaging is manufactured from recycled paper and should be deposited in the waste
paper collection for recycling.
Dispose of the old appliance.
When you finally cease to use your washing
machine, please take it to the nearest recycling centre or to your dealer.
2 Ecological tips
• For items that are soiled to an average degree, it
is possible to get by without a pre-wash cycle.
This will save you detergent, water, and time (and
protect the environment as well!).
• The washing machine can be particularly economical if you make full use of the loads allowed.
• With small loads, use half to two thirds the recommended quantity of detergent.
• Stains and certain amount of soiling can be
removed prior to washing with suitable treatment.
Then you can use a lower temperature when
washing.
• Wash lightly to normally soiled whites using the
energy saver programme.
• It is often possible to do without conditioner. Give
it a try! Using a dryer can make your washing just
as soft and fluffy without the use of conditioner.
• With medium to very hard water (for hardness
range II or higher, see “Detergents and conditioners”), you should add a water softener. The
amount of detergent used can then always be
that as for hardness range I ( soft).
6
• Small animals can nibble on electrical cables and
waterhoses. This can constitute a risk of electrocution and water damage. Keep small animals
away from the washing machine.

1) Note: Programme setting for testing in accordance with EN 60 456. Consumption values will vary from those
quoted depending on the water pressure, water hardness, water temperature as it enters the machine, room
temperature, type and quantity of items to be washed, detergent used, fluctuations in the mains voltage and
additional options selected.
Before the first wash
Perform a wash cycle without loading any washing:
COTTONS 95 (light blue), with half of the normal
amount of detergent.
This is to remove any residual substances remaining
in the drum and water tank due to manufacturing
processes.
11
Preparing for a wash cycle
Sorting and preparing the washing
• Sort the washing according to care symbols and
type (see “Types of washing and care symbols”).
• Empty out the pockets.
• Remove metal objects (such as paper clips,
safety pins, etc).
• To prevent damage to items and stop the washing
from balling up: Close zips, button up bed and
cushion covers, tie together loose strings for
example from aprons.
• Turn items with double-layered fabrics inside-out
(sleeping bags, anoraks, etc.).
• For treated coloured textiles and textiles with
attached decorations: Turn items inside out.
• Wash small delicate items (baby’s socks, stockings, bras etc.) in a washing bag, in a cushion
cover which has a zip or in larger socks.
• Special care must be taken with curtains.
Remove metal or burred plastic rollers or tie them
up in a net or bag. We cannot accept liability for
any damage.
• Coloured and white items should not be washed
together in the same cycle. White items will otherwise discolour or become grey.
• New coloured items often contain excess dye. It
is better to wash these items separately the first
time.
• Mix larger items with smaller ones. This will
improve the effectiveness of the wash and distribute items more evenly during the spin cycle.
• Shake out the items before loading them into the
washing machine.
• Separate items from one another before placing
them inside the drum.
• Pay attention to care instructions such as “Wash
separately” and “Wash separately several times”.
Types of washing and care symbols
The care symbols will help you to choose the correct
wash programme. The washing should be sorted
according to type and care symbol. The temperatures indicated on the care symbols are the maximum wash temperatures.
Delicates ì
Cottons ç
Wool, silk and especially sensitive items
9ìï
Cotton and linen items with this care symbol are not
sensitive to machine washing or high temperatures.
The COTTONS/LINEN (light blue) programme is suitable for such items.
Linen è ë
Cotton and linen items with this care symbol are not
sensitive to machine washing. The COTTONS/LINEN
(light blue) programme is suitable for this type of
washing.
Easy-care items ê í
Materials such as fine cotton, cotton-blend fabrics
and synthetics with these care symbols require a
gentler machine wash. The EASY-CARES (yellow)
programme is suitable for such items.
12
Materials such as layered fibres, micro-fibres, synthetics and curtains with this care symbol require particularly careful treatment. The DELICATES (black)
programme is suitable for such items.
Fabrics such as wool, wool blends and silk with
these care symbols are particularly sensitive to
machine washing. The Í WOOL (black) programme
is suitable for such fabrics.
Important: Items with the care symbol ñ (Do not
wash!) must not be washed in washing machines.
Detergents and conditioners
Which detergent and conditioner?
2
Only use detergents and conditioners that are suitable for use in washing machines. Always follow the
manufacturer’s recommendations.
How much detergent and
conditioner?
The amount of detergent or conditioner to be used is
dependent on:
• the degree of soiling of the washing
• the hardness of the tap water
• the load size.
If the detergent manufacturer makes no recommendations concerning the amount of
detergent or conditioner to be used for a
minimum load, for a half-load use a third
less, and for a very small load use only the
half of the amount of detergent that is recommended for a full load.
Please follow the instructions for use and
dosage provided by the detergent and conditioner manufacturer.
Water softener
same amount of detergent as for hardness range I
(= soft). Your competent water works will provide you
with information about local water hardness.
Water softener should be used if the water hardess is
medium to hard (from hardness range II). Please take
note of the manufacturer’s instructions. Then use the

Performing an emergency emptying procedure
• If the washing machine is not draining the wash
water, an emergency emptying procedure must
be carried out.
• If the washing machine is located in a room that is
at risk of frost, in the event that a risk of frost
exists an emergency emptying procedure must
not be carried out. In addition: Unscrew the inflow
hose from the tap and lay it on the floor; empty
the outlet hose.
Warning: Prior to performing an emergency
emptying procedure, switch off the washing
machine and disconnect the power plug.
Caution: The wash water which flows out of
the emergency emptying hose can be hot.
The risk of scalding exists. Before carrying
out an emergency emptying procedure, first
allow the wash water to cool down.
1. Place a flat collecting vessel at the ready to catch
the outflowing wash water.
2. Open the flap located on the right of the base
panel downwards and remove it.
1
3. Remove the emergency emptying hose from its
retainer.
4. Place the collecting vessel underneath.
5. Detach the emergency emptying hose’s plug by
turning it in an anti-clockwise direction and
remove it.
The wash water will flow out. Depending on the
amount of wash water it may be necessary to
empty the collecting vessel a number of times. To
do this, cap the emergency emptying hose again
at intervals using the plug.
When the wash water has completely
flowed out:
6. Insert the plug into the emergency emptying hose
and turn it in a clockwise direction until it is firmly
in place.
7. Replace the emergency emptying hose into the
retainer.
8. Place the flap into the base panel and close it.
28
Cleaning the drain pump
The drain pump is maintenance-free. Opening the
cover of the drain pump is required only in the event
of a malfunction when no more water is being
pumped out, e.g. if the pump wheel is blocked.
Before loading the machine, please always ensure
that there are no foreign objects present in the pockets or in between the items to be washed. Paper
clips, nails etc. which may find their way into the
washing machine along with the washing will remain
in the drain pump housing (foreign objects remain in
the pump wheel as protection).
To restart the drain pump when it is blocked, please
proceed as follows:
Warning: Prior to cleaning the drain pump,
switch off the washing machine and disconnect the power plug.
1. First carry out an emergency emptying procedure
(see section “What to do if .../performing an
emergency emptying procedure”).
2. Place a cloth on the floor in front of the cover of
the drain pump. Residual water may run out.
3. Screw off the lid of the drain pump in an anticlockwise direction and remove it.
1
4. Remove any foreign objects from the drain pump
housing.

Safety information concerning installation
• Do not tip the washing machine onto its front nor
onto its right side (looking at it front-on). Electrical
components could become wet as a result.
• Check the washing machine for damages that
may have occurred during transit. Under no circumstances can you connect a damaged appliance to the mains. In the event of damage to the
appliance contact your supplier.
• Ensure that all parts of the transportation lock
have been removed and that the appliance’s
splash guard has been fixed; see “Removing the
transportation lock”. Otherwise damage my be
sustained by the appliance or adjoining units during spinning.
• Always insert the power plug into shock-proof
power points that have been installed according
to regulations.
• In the case of hard-wiring: Hard-wiring to the
mains may only be carried out by an authorised
technician.
• Prior to using the appliance ensure that the mains
voltage and current rating at the site of installation
match the nominal voltage and current rating
stated on the rating plate. The required fuse protection is also to be found on the rating plate.
• If work needs to be carried out on the water
installations so that the washing machine can be
properly connected to the water supply, this work
must be carried out by an authorised installation
technician.
• If work needs to be carried out on the electricity
network so that the washing machine can be
properly connected to the electricity supply, this
work must be carried out by an authorised electrician.
• The mains supply line may only be replaced by
Customer Service or by an authorised technician.
31
Installing the washing machine
Transporting the appliance
• Do not lay the washing machine on its front nor
on its right side (looking at it front-on). Otherwise
electrical components could become wet.
• Never transport the appliance without using
transportation locks. Do not remove the transportation locks prior to arrival at the site at which the
appliance is to be installed. Transporting the
appliance without the use of transportation locks
can cause damage to the appliance.
• Never lift the appliance by the open loading door
nor by the base.
• When transporting the washing machine using a
handcart: place the handcart on the side of the
appliance only.
Removing the transportation lock
Important: Be sure to remove the transportation
lock before using the appliance. Carefully store all
the parts belonging to the transportation lock for
possible future use when transporting the appliance
(such as moving house).
1. Open the two hose retainers located at the rear of
the appliance and remove the hoses and electrical cord.
2. Pull the two hose retainers off the appliance by
giving them a strong tug.
32
A special key A and sealing caps B
(2 pieces) and C (1 piece) are included with
the washing machine.
3. Remove the D screw incl. pressure spring using
the special key A.
4. Cap the hole using the C sealing cap.
Important: Press the sealing cap in strongly
enough so that it clicks into the rear wall (protects
the appliance interior from sprayed water).

Unscrew two E screws using the special key A.
Unscrew four F screws using the special key A.
Remove the G transport bars.
Screw the four F screws in again.
Cap the two large holes using the B sealing caps.
Important: Press the sealing caps in strongly
enough so that they click into the rear wall (protects the appliance interior from sprayed water).
Preparing the location where the washing machine is to
be installed
• The surface on which the washing machine is to
be installed must be clean and dry and free from
floor polish residue and other greasy coatings so
that the appliance does not slip. Do not use lubricants to assist you in sliding the appliance.
• Installing the appliance on deep pile carpeting or
floor coverings with a soft foam backing is not
recommended as the stability of the appliance
cannot be guaranteed as a result.
• If the surface on which the appliance is to be
installed is covered with small tiles, place commercially available small rubber mats under the
stands.
• Never place wood, cardboard or similar materials
to compensate for small unevennesses in the
floor; always adjust the screw feet instead.
• If installing the washing machine right next to a
gas or coal cooker is unavoidable due to space
restrictions: Insert a heat-insulating plate (85 x 57
cm) between the range and the washing machine;
the side of the plate that is facing the range is to
be covered with aluminium foil.
• The washing machine must not be installed in a
room which is at risk of frosting up. Frost damage
may result.
• The water inlet and outlet hose must not be
kinked or crushed.
33
Installing the appliance on a concrete base
When installing the appliance on a concrete base,
mounting plates in which the washing machine is
positioned must be fitted for reasons related to
safety. The mounting plates are available from Customer Service.
Installing the appliance on floors
which oscillate
When installing the appliance on oscillating floors, in
particular wooden beam floors with deal boards,
screw a water-resistant wooden slab of at least 15
mm thickness onto at least two of the floor beams. If
possible, place the appliance in a corner of the room
as it is here that the wooden floor is clamped tautest
and where therefore the tendency that resonance
vibrations will occur is lowest.
Compensating for floor unevenness
The four screw feet can be used to compensate for
unevenness in the floor and adjust the height. The
height can be adjusted within a range of +10 ... -6
mm.
To do this, use the accompanying special key that
was used to remove the transportation lock.
1. Slide the special key firmly onto the screw foot’s
Allen screw as far as it will go.
2. Adjust the screw feet such that the appliance is
standing level and is stable. The appliance must
not wobble when a load is placed on one of its
corners.
3. Check the positioning of the appliance using a
spirit level if required.
Important: Never place wood, cardboard or similar materials to compensate for small unevenness
in the floor; always adjust the screw feet instead.
34
Connecting the appliance to the electricity
supply
Specifications relating to the mains voltage, type of
electricity and the required fuse protection can be
found on the rating plate. The rating plate is located
behind the loading door.
;
This appliance complies with the following
EU directives:
– the “Low voltage directive”
73/23/EEC with amendments
– the “EMC Directive”
73/23/EEC with amendments
Connecting the appliance to the water supply
3
The washing machine has been fitted with
safety devices that prevent drinking water
from being fouled by a reflow of dirty water
and which comply with the national legal
regulations of the water boards (e.g. for Germany: DVGW Directives). Additional protection measures are therefore not necessary
when installing the appliance.
Important:
– Appliances meant to be connected to the cold
water supply must not be connected to the hot
water supply!
– When connecting the appliance use only new
hose kits!
Permitted water pressure
The water pressure must be 1 bar (= 10N/cm2 =
0,1 MPa), or a maximum of 10 bar (= 100N/cm2
= 1 MPa).
• For water pressure greater than 10 bar: Use pressure reduction valve.
• For water pressure less than 1 bar: Unscrew the
inflow valve from magnetic inlet valve (appliance
end) and remove the flow regulator (in order to do
this, remove the filter using needle-nosed pliers
and remove the rubber disk that is located behind
it). Replace the filter.
35
Water inflow
A pressure hose of 1.35m in length is supplied.
If a longer inlet hose is required, only the complete
hose kit with attached threaded hose fitting which is
supplied by our Customer Service and which has
been approved by the German Electricians Association may be used.
– For washing machines which do not have Aqua
Control, hose kits of 2.2m, 3.5m and 5m in length
are available.
– For washing machines which have Aqua Control,
hose kits of 2.0m, 2.9m and 3.9m in length are
available.
Important: Never add extra units in order to increase
the length of a hose.
Gaskets are located either inside the
threaded hose fitting’s plastic nuts or in the
accompanying package. Do not use any
other type of gasket.
1. Connect the hose to the machine using the 90°
offset connection.
3
Important:
– Do not place the inlet hose such that it is running
vertically downwards; turn it left or right as in the
illustration.
– Tighten the threaded hose fitting by hand only.
2. Connect the hose with the straight connection to
a tap with a screw thread of R 3/4 (inches).
Important: Tighten the threaded hose fitting by
hand only.
3. Check that the connection is leak-proof by slowly
turning on the tap prior to using the washing
machine.
36
Water drainage
The drain hose can be either connected to a siphon
or hung in a basin, sink or bathtub.
Only original hoses may be used to extend the hose
(max. 3 m laid on the ground and then up to 80 cm
high). Customer Service provides drain hoses of 2.7
m and 4m in length.
Important: Lay the drain hose so that it is absolutely
free of kinks.
Draining water through a siphon
The spout at the end of the drain hose is suitable for
all the usual types of siphon.
Secure the spout/siphon connection point with a
hose clip.
Draining water into a basin
Important:
– Small basins are not suitable for draining water.
Water could overflow if a small basin is used.
– The end of the drain hose must not dip into the
water which has been pumped out. Water may
otherwise be sucked back into the appliance.
– To hang the drain hose into a wash basin or a
bath tub, the drain hose must be secured to avoid
slipping by using the accompanying attachable
elbow. The rebound strength of the out-flowing
water can otherwise push the hose out of the
basin.
Use a cord to secure the elbow to the tap or the wall.
Pump lifts of over 1m
Each washing machine has a drain pump which is
used to pump out wash/rinse water; this drain pump
conveys liquids through the drain hose up to a height
of 1m, calculated from the surface on which the
machine is placed.
For pump lifts of over 1m, please contact Customer
Service.
37
Installing the appliance underneath kitchen
worktops
Important:
• The tap and power plug must remain accessible
even after the appliance is in place.
• If the appliance is hard-wired to the mains supply,
then it must be safely isolated from the mains at
the time of installation with an all-pole (N,L1)
bearing separator (e.g. supply terminal circuit
breaker), which has a contact separation of at
least >3 mm.
• The connections to electricity and water must be
located to the side of the appliance. There is no
room for this at the rear.
Kitchens with a worktop height of 85 cm
An installation kit is required to install the washing
machine under a worktop. The installation kit can be
obtained from Customer Service.
1
Warning: When installing the washing
machine under a worktop after having
removed the appliance’s own worktop, the
appliance must be protected from spraying
water by the following measures:
Required dimensions of recess (minimum measurements in mm)

Service
In the chapter "What to do if...“ , some faults are
listed which you can remedy yourself. Look there
first if a fault occurs. If you do not find any information there, please consult your Customer Service.
Always prepare in advance for the discussion. By
doing so you will simplify the diagnosis and the decision on whether customer service is necessary.
Note the PNC number and S. number. You will find
both on the rating plate on the inside of the door of
your washing machine.
PNC: ......................................................................
S-No.: ......................................................................
Answer as precisely as possible:
• What form does the fault take?
• Under what circumstances does the fault occur?
When do you incur costs even during the
warranty period?
– If you could have remedied the fault yourself with
the aid of the fault table (see the section "What to
do if..."),
– If several journeys by the customer service technician are necessary because for example he did
not receive all the important information before
his visit and must collect spare parts. These multiple trips can be avoided if you prepare your
phone call as described above.
