Setting the time
So that the current time and the end of the programme are correctly
displayed, please check the display and set the current time, if necessary. (See “Setting extra options: Timer”.)
Carrying out a wash programme prior to first use
Before doing your first wash, run a washing cycle without any washing
in the machine (programme LINEN/EASY-C. 60°, option TIME SAVING/
VERY QUICK, use approx. 1/4 measuring cup of washing powder).
This will remove any residues from the drum and water container which
have been left as a result of the production process.
Preparing and sorting washing
Preparing washing
• Empty pockets. Remove foreign bodies (e. g. coins, paper clips, nails,
etc.).
• Do up zips, button up covers to prevent damage to washing.
• Remove the runners from net curtains or cover them with a net or a
bag.
• Wash sensitive and small items in a net or a pillow case, e.g. net curtains, tights, socks, handkerchiefs, bras.
Important! Bras and other items containing wires should only be
washed in a net bag. The wires can work loose and damage the appliance.
Sorting washing
• By colour: Wash white and coloured washing separately. Washing can
run.
• By temperature, type of washing and care symbol.
Important! Do not wash fabrics with care symbol G (= do not wash!)
in the washing machine.

If the wash results are not satisfactory
Washing is grey and scale is being deposited in the drum
• Too little detergent is being used.
• The right detergent was not used.
• Special soiling was not pre-treated.
• Programme or temperature was not correctly set.
There are grey stains on the washing.
• Washing soiled with ointment, grease or oil was washed with too little detergent.
• It was washed at too low a temperature.
• A common cause is that fabric conditioner – especially a concentrate
– has got onto the washing. Such stains should be washed out as
quickly as possible and make sure that you are careful when using
fabric conditioner.
After the last rinse foam can still be seen.
• Modern detergents may create foam even in the last rinse cycle. The
washing is however sufficiently rinsed.
There are white residues on the washing.
• This is due to the insoluble ingredients in modern detergents.
They are not caused by insufficient rinsing.
Shake or brush the washing. If possible turn the washing inside out
before washing. Check your choice of detergent. Especially with dark
colours it is advisable to use liquid detergents.

right at the back of the pump housing can turn. (It is normal for the
pumping wheel to turn jerkily.) If
the pumping wheel cannot be
turned, please contact the Customer
Care Department.
6. Insert the pump cover. Insert the
guides at the sides of the cover into
the guide slots and tighten the cover by turning in a clockwise
direction.

Making the appliance level
3
Automatic foot: The rear foot on the left-hand side of your washing
machine is built as a shock absorbing foot, which is why the appliance
gives in the back left-hand corner if put under load. The automatic foot
guarantees that the appliance does not move even at high spin speeds.
Basically the automatic foot does not need to be set.
The four feet of the appliance are
pre-adjusted.
Large degrees of unevenness can be
compensated for by individually adjusting the height adjustable screw
feet.
Use the special spanner supplied to
do this.
Important! Do not use pieces of
wood, cardboard or such like to level out unevenness in the floor, but
adjust the height adjustable screw
feet instead.
37

Water drainage
The maximum permitted difference between the height of the surface
on which the appliance is installed and the water outlet is 1 metre.
Only original hoses may be used to extend hoses. (A maximum of 3 m
laid on the floor and then 80 cm vertically). The Customer Care Department stocks outlet hoses of different lengths.
Draining water into a sink outlet
Secure the outlet/sink outlet joint
with a hose band clip (available from
your dealer).

Draining water into a wash basin/bath
Important!
– Small basins are not suitable. Water may overflow.
– The end of the drain hose must
not be in the water that has been
pumped out. Otherwise water
could be sucked back into the appliance.
– When draining into a wash basin
or a bath, secure the drain hose
with the supplied elbow to stop it
slipping. Otherwise the water running out can force the hose out of
the basin.
– When pumping the water out,
check that the water is running
away fast enough.
Pumping heights over 1 m
The washing machine’s drain pump is able to pump water to a height of
1meter, calculated from the surface on which the appliance is installed.
Warning! If pumping height is over 1 metre, malfunctions and damage
to the appliance may arise.
For pumping heights over 1metre a conversion kit can be obtained.
Please contact the Customer Care Department.

Guarantee Conditions
Belgium
DECLARATION OF GUARANTEE TERMS.
Our appliances are produced with the greatest of care. However, a defect may still occur. Our consumer services department will repair this upon request, either during or after the guarantee period. The service life of the appliance will not, however, be reduced as a result.
This declaration of guarantee terms is based on European Union Directive 99/44/EC and the provisions of the Civil Code. The statutory rights that the consumer has under this legislation are not
affected by this declaration of guarantee terms.
This declaration does not affect the vendor's statutory warranty to the end user. The appliance is
guaranteed within the context of and in adherence with the following terms:
1. In accordance with provisions laid down in paragraphs 2 to 15, we will remedy free of charge any
defect that occurs within 24 months from the date the appliance is delivered to the first end user.
These guarantee terms do not apply in the event of use for professional or equivalent purposes.
2. Performing the guarantee means that the appliance is returned to the condition it was in before
the defect occurred. Defective parts are replaced or repaired. Parts replaced free of charge become
our property.
3. So as to avoid more severe damage, the defect must be brought to our attention immediately.
4. Applying the guarantee is subject to the consumer providing proof of purchase showing the purchase and/or delivery date.
5. The guarantee will not apply if damage caused to delicate parts, such as glass (vitreous ceramic),
synthetic materials and rubber, is the result of inappropriate use.
6. The guarantee cannot be called on for minor faults that do not affect the value or the overall reliability of the appliance.
7. The statutory warranty does not apply when defects are caused by:
• a chemical or electrochemical reaction caused by water,
• abnormal environmental conditions in general,
• unsuitable operating conditions,
• contact with harsh substances.
8. The guarantee does not apply to defects due to transport which have occurred outside of our responsibility. Nor will the guarantee cover those caused by inadequate installation or assembly, lack
of maintenance or failure to respect the assembly instructions or directions for use.
9. Defects that result from repairs or measures carried out by people who are not qualified or expert
or defects that result from the addition of non-original accessories or spare parts are not covered
by the guarantee.
10. Appliances that are easy to transport may be delivered or sent to the consumer services department. Home repairs are only anticipated for bulky appliances or built-in appliances.
11. If the appliances are built-in, built-under, fixed or suspended in such a way that removing and replacing them in the place where they are fitted takes more than half an hour, the costs that result
therefrom will be charged for. Connected damage caused by these removal and replacement operations will be the responsibility of the user.
12. If, during the guarantee period, repairing the same defect repeatedly is not conclusive, or if the repair costs are considered disproportionate, in agreement with the consumer, the defective appliance may be replaced with another appliance of the same value.
In this event, we reserve the right to ask for a financial contribution calculated according to the
length of time it has been used.
13. A repair under guarantee does not mean that the normal guarantee period will be extended nor
that a new guarantee period begins.
14. We give a twelve month guarantee for repairs, limited to the same defect.
15. Except in the event where liability is legally imposed, this declaration of guarantee terms excludes
any compensation for damage outside the appliance for which the consumer wishes to assert his
rights. In the event of legally admitted liability, compensation will not exceed the purchase price
paid for the appliance.
41
These guarantee terms are only valid for appliances purchased and used in Belgium. For exported
appliances, the user must first make sure that they satisfy the technical conditions (e.g.: voltage,
frequency, installation instructions, type of gas, etc.) for the country concerned and that they can
withstand the local climatic and environmental conditions. For appliances purchased abroad, the
user must first ensure that they meet the qualifications required in Belgium. Non-essential or requested adjustments are not covered by the guarantee and are not possible in all cases.
Our consumer services department is always at your disposal, even after the guarantee period has
expired.
