laundry.
Spin
Spins the load then empties the water. For robust laundry.
Drain
Drain only - no spinning.
FIRST TIME USE
To remove any manufacturing debris select the “Synthetics“
programme at a temperature of 60°C. Pour a small quantity of detergent
powder into the main wash compartment of the detergent dispenser
(maximum 1/3 of the quantity the detergent manufacturer recommends
for lightly soiled laundry). Start the programme without adding any
laundry.
DAILY USE
Prepare your laundry according to the recommendations in the “HINTS
AND TIPS“ section. Load the laundry, close the drum door and check that
it is closed properly. Pour in the detergent and any additives. Observe the
dosing recommendations on the detergent pack. Close the lid. Turn the
programme selector to the desired programme and select any option
if needed. The indicator for the “Start/Pause” button flashes and the
indicator for the preset spin speed lights up. The speed can be changed
by pressing the “Spin” button. Open the tap and press the “Start/Pause”
button to start the wash cycle. The “Start/Pause” indicator will lights up
and the door will be locked. Due to variations in load and temperature of
inlet water, the remaining time is newly calculated in certain programme
phases.
PAUSE OR CHANGE A RUNNING PROGRAMME
To pause the wash cycle, press the “Start/Pause“
button, the indicator
light blinks. Select any new programme, temperature, options or spin
speed if you wish to change those settings. Press the “Start/Pause“
button again to start the wash cycle from the point at which it was
interrupted. Do not add detergent for this programme.
LID OPEN INDICATOR
Before starting and after the end of a programme, the “Lid open“
indicator lights to show that the lid can be opened. As long as a wash
programme is running, the lid remains locked and must on no account
be forced open. In case you have an urgent need to open it during a
running programme, for example to add more laundry, or to remove
laundry which was loaded by mistake, press the “Start/Pause“
button. If the temperature is not too high, the “Lid open“ indicator
light turns on. It may last a while until you can open the lid. Press “Start/
Pause“
to proceed with the programme again.
PROGRAMME END
The “Lid open“ indicator lights up. Turn the programme selector to
the “O“ position and close the water tap. Open the lid and drum and
unload the machine. Leave the Lid open for some time to allow the
interior of the machine to dry. After about a quarter of an hour, the
washing machine will switch off completely to save energy.
To cancel a running programme before the end of cycle, press the
“Reset“ button for at least 3 seconds. The water is drained out. It may
last a while until you can open the lid.
OPTIONS
! When the combination of programme and additional option(s) is not
possible, the indication lights switch off automatically.
! Unsuitable combinations of options are deselected automatically.
Start delay
To set the selected programme to start at a later time, press the “Delay
Timer” button until the desired delay time indication is illuminated.
The lamp for the “Start delay“
option button lights up, and it goes off
when the programme starts. Once having pressed the “Start/Pause“
button, the countdown of the time delay begins. Number of hours preselected can be reduced by pressing the “Start delay“
button again.
Do not use liquid detergent when activating this option. To cancel the
“Start delay“
turn the programme selector to another position.
Prewash
Only for heavily soiled loads (for example sand, granular dirt). Increases
the cycle time by approximately 15 min. Do not use liquid detergent for
the main wash when activating the Prewash option.
Rapid
Enables quicker washing by shortening the programme duration.
Recommendable for small loads or only lightly soiled laundry.
Intensive rinse
Helps to avoid detergent residues in the laundry by extending the rinse
phase. Particularly suitable for washing baby laundry, for people suffering
from allergies and for areas with soft water.
Rinse Hold
The laundry remains in the last rinse water without progressing to the
final spin cycle to avoid creasing and prevent colours from changing. This
option is particularly recommended for the “Synthetics”, “Daily load” and
“Delicates” programmes. It is useful if you want to postpone spinning to
a later time, or if you want to drain out only. If you select “Rinse Hold”
, do not leave items to soak for too long. As soon as the appliance stops in
the rinse hold, the “Rinse hold”
lamp of the sequence indicator lights
up and the lamp next to the “Start/Pause” button flashes.
Terminate the “Rinse Hold”
option:
Press the “Start/Pause” button; the programme will terminate
automatically with the final spin cycle for the present wash programme. If
you do not wish to spin the clothes, turn the programme selector knob to
the “Drain” programme and press the “Start/Pause” button.
Spin
Every programme has a predefined spin speed. If you want to change the
spin speed, press the “Spin“ button. If spin speed “0“ is selected, the
final spinning is cancelled but intermediate spin peaks remain during the
rinse. The water is drained out only.

Quick guide
BLEACHING
Wash your laundry in the desired programme, Cotton or Synthetics
, adding an appropriate amount of chlorine bleach to the Softener
chamber (close the lid carefully). Immediately after the end of
the programme, turn the “Programme selector” and start the desired
programme again to eliminate any residual bleach smell; if you want, you
can add softener. Never put both chlorine bleach and softener into the
softener chamber at the same time.
HINTS AND TIPS
Sort your laundry according to
Type of fabric/care label (cotton, mixed fibres, synthetics, wool, handwash
items). Colour (separate coloured and white items, wash new coloured
items separately). Delicates (wash small items – like nylon stockings – and
items with hooks – like bras – in a cloth bag or pillow case with zip).
Empty all pockets
Objects like coins or lighters can damage your laundry as well as the
drum.
Appliance interior
If you never or seldom wash your laundry at 95°C, we recommend to
occasionally run a 95°C programme without laundry, adding a small
amount of detergent, to keep the interior of the appliance clean.
CLEANING & MAINTENANCE
For any cleaning and maintenance, switch off and unplug the washing
machine. Do not use flammable fluids to clean the washing machine.
Cleaning the outside of the washing machine
Use a soft damp cloth to clean the outer parts of the washing machine.
Do not use glass or general purpose cleaners, scouring powder or similar
to clean the control panel – these substances might damage the printing.
Detergent dispenser
Clean regularly, at least three or four times a year, to prevent detergent
build-up:
Press the release button  to release the detergent dispenser and
remove it. A small quantity of water can remain in the dispenser, thus you
should carry it in an upright position. Wash the dispenser using running
water. You can also remove the siphon cap on the back of the
dispenser for cleaning. Replace the siphon cap in the dispenser (if
removed) Reinstall the dispenser by locating the dispenser’s bottom tabs
into the appropriate openings on the lid, and by pushing the dispenser
against the lid until it locks into place. Make sure that the detergent
dispenser is correctly reinstalled.
Checking the water supply hose
Check the inlet hose regularly for brittleness and cracks. If damaged,
replace it by a new hose available through our After-Sales Service or
your specialist dealer. Depending on the hose type: If the inlet hose has
a transparent coating, periodically check if the colour intensifies locally.
If yes, the hose may have a leak and should be replaced. For water stop
hoses
(If available): check the small safety valve inspection
window (see arrow). If it is red, the water stop function was triggered, and
the hose must be replaced by a new one. For unscrewing this hose, press
the release button (if available) while unscrewing the hose.
Cleaning the mesh filters in the water supply hose
Check and clean regularly (at least two or three times a year).
Close the tap and loosen the inlet hose on the tap. Clean the internal
mesh filter and screw the water inlet hose back onto the tap. Now
unscrew the inlet hose on the rear of the washing machine. Pull off the
mesh filter from the washing machine connection with universal pliers
and clean it. Refit the mesh filter and screw the inlet hose on again. Turn
on the tap and ensure that the connections are completely water-tight.
Cleaning the water filter / draining residual water
The washing machine is provided with a self-cleaning pump. The filter
keeps objects like buttons, coins, safetypins etc. which have been left in
the laundry. If you used a hot wash programme, wait until the water has
cooled down before draining any water. Clean the water filter regularly, to
avoid that the water cannot drain after the wash due to obstruction of the
filter. If the water cannot drain, the indicator indicates that the water filter
may be clogged.
Open the filter cover with a coin. Place a broad, flat container beneath
the water filter, to collect the drain water. Slowly turn the filter
counterclockwise until water flows out. Let the water flow out, without
removing the filter. When the container is full, close the water filter by
turning it in clockwise. Empty the container. Repeat this procedure until
all the water has drained. Lay a cotton cloth beneath the water filter,
which can absorb a small amount of rest water. Then remove the water
filter by turning it out anti clockwise. Clean the water filter (remove
residues in the filter and clean it under running water) and the filter
chamber. Make sure the pump impeller (in the housing behind the filter)
is not obstructed. Insert the water filter and close the filter cover: Reinsert
the water filter again by turning it in clockwise direction. Make sure to
turn it in as far as it goes. To test water tightness of the water filter, you
can pour about 1 liter of water into the drum and check that water does
not leak from the filter. Then close the filter cover.
Lid seal
Check the condition of the lid seal periodically and clean it from time to
time with a damp cloth.
Recovering an object that falls between the drum and the tub
If an object accidentally falls between the drum and the tub, you can
recover it thanks to one of the removable drum lifters.
Unplug the washing machine. Remove the laundry from the drum. Close
the drum flaps and turn the drum a half-turn (picture a). Using a screwdriver press on the plastic end, while sliding the lifter from left to right
(picture b, c) by hand it will fall into the drum. Open the drum. You can
recover the object through the hole in the drum. Refit the lifter from
inside the drum: Position the plastic tip above the hole on the right side
of the drum (picture d). Then slide the plastic lifter from right to left until
it clips. Close the drum flaps again, turn the drum through half a turn and
check the positioning of the blade at all its anchorage points. Plug the
washing machine in again.

TRANSPORT AND HANDLING
Pull out the mains plug, and close the water tap. Disconnect the inlet
hose from the water tap, and remove the drain hose from your draining
point. Remove all rest water from the hoses and washing machine and
fix hoses so that they cannot get damaged during transport. To facilitate
moving the machine, pull the mobility lever situated at the bottom
front (if available on your model) out a little by hand. Pull the washing
machine out to the stop with the foot. Afterwards push the mobility lever
back into the original stable position. Refit the transport bracket. Follow
the instructions for removing the transport bracket in the INSTALATION
GUIDE in reverse order.
