Locked door indicator
When lit, the symbol indicates that the door is locked. To prevent any
damage, wait until the symbol turns off before opening the door.
To open the door while a cycle is in progress, press the START/PAUSE
button
; if the
symbol is off, the door can be opened.
FIRST-TIME USE
Once the appliance has been installed, and before it is used for the first
time, run a wash cycle with detergent and no laundry, by setting the “Auto
Clean” cycle.
DAILY USE
Prepare the laundry by following the suggestions appearing under the
“TIPS AND SUGGESTIONS” section.
- Press the ON/OFF button ; “BAUKNECHT” will appear on the display;
the indicator light relative to the START/PAUSE
button will flash slowly.
- Open the door. Load the laundry while making sure not to exceed the
maximum load quantity indicated in the wash cycle table.
- Pull out the detergent dispenser drawer and pour the detergent into the
relevant compartments, as described in the “DETERGENT DISPENSER
DRAWER” section.
- Close the door.
- Use the WASH CYCLE selector knob to select the desired wash cycle: the
cycle’s name will appear on the display; the cycle will be associated with a
specific temperature and spin speed which can be modified. The duration
of the cycle will appear on the display.
- Modify the temperature and/or spin speed: the machine automatically
selects the maximum temperature and spin speed set for the selected
wash cycle; these values cannot therefore be increased. Pressing the
button gradually reduces the temperature down to the cold wash setting
(the “--” symbol will appear on the display). Pressing the
button
gradually reduces the spin speed until it is completely excluded (the “--”
symbol will appear on the display). Pressing the buttons further restores
the maximum allowed values for the selected cycle.
- Select the desired options.
- Press the START/PAUSE
button to start the wash cycle; the relative
indicator light will light up steady and the door will lock ( symbol on).
PAUSING A CYCLE
To pause the wash cycle, press the START/PAUSE
button again; the
indicator light will flash. To start the wash cycle from the point at which it
was interrupted, press the START/PAUSE
button again.
CHANGING A RUNNING WASH CYCLE
To change a wash cycle while it is in progress, pause the washing machine
using the START/PAUSE
button (the relative indicator light will flash),
then select the desired cycle and press the START/PAUSE
button again.
! To cancel a cycle that has already begun, press and hold the ON/OFF
button. The cycle will be stopped and the machine will switch off.
AT THE END OF THE WASH CYCLE
This will be indicated by the word “CYCLE END” on the display; when the
symbol switches off, the door may be opened. Open the door, unload
the laundry and switch off the machine. If you do not press ON/OFF
button, the washing machine will switch off automatically after about a
half of an hour.
OPTIONS
- If the selected function is incompatible with the set wash cycle, the
relevant indicator light will appear dimly lit; the incompatibility will also
be signalled by a buzzer (3 beeps) and the wording “Not Selection” will
appear on the display.
- If the selected function is incompatible with another previously set
function, the wording “Not Selection” will appear on the display and
the function will not be enabled.
Cold Wash
This option saves energy by not heating the water used to wash your
laundry – an advantage both to the environment and to your energy bill.
Instead, intensified wash action and water optimisation ensure great
wash results in the same average time of a standard cycle.
For the best washing results we recommend the usage of a liquid
detergent.
Easy iron
By selecting this option, the wash and spin cycles will be modified in
order to reduce the formation of creases. At the end of the cycle the
washing machine will perform slow rotations of the drum. To end the
cycle, press the START/PAUSE button.
Pre-wash
Allows you to perform a prewash.
Delay Timer
To set a delayed start for the selected cycle, press the corresponding
button repeatedly until the desired delay period is reached. To remove
the delayed start setting, press the button until “-- h” appears on the
display.
Temperature
Each wash cycle has a pre-defined temperature. To modify the
temperature, press the button. The value will appear on the display.
Spin
Each wash cycle has a pre-defined spin speed. To modify the spin speed,
press the
button. The value will appear on the display.
Cleaning action
Option
makes it possible to optimise washing based on the level of
soil in the fabrics and on desired wash cycle intensity.
For heavily-soiled garments press
button until the “Intensive wash”
level is reached. This level ensures a high-performance wash due to a larger
quantity of water used in the initial phase of the cycle and due to increased
drum rotation. It is useful when removing the most stubborn stains.
For lightly-soiled garments or a more delicate treatment of the fabrics,
press
button until the “Delicate wash” level is reached. The cycle
will reduce drum rotation to ensure washing results that are perfect for
delicate garments.
Multi Rinse
This option allows for selecting the desired rinse type to protect sensitive
skin. Press the button once to set level “Extra +1”, which allows for
selecting an additional rinse to the standard cycle rinses and removing all
traces of detergent. Press the button again to set level “Extra +2”, which
allows for selecting two additional rinses to the standard cycle rinses; this
cycle is recommended for very sensitive skin. When the button is pressed
for the third time, the “Extra +3” level is set, which allows for selecting
3 additional rinses to the standard cycle rinses. When started with
cycles at a temperature of 40°C, this option makes it possible to remove
major allergens such as pollen and cat or dog hair. With cycles running
at temperatures higher than 40°C, an excellent level of anti-allergy
protection is achieved. Press the button again to return to the “Normal
Rinse” mode. If the current mode cannot be set nor changed, the display
will show “Not Selection” or “Not Change”.
KEY LOCK
To activate the control panel lock, press and hold the
button for
roughly 2 seconds. When the display visualises “KEY LOCK ON”, the control
panel is locked (except for the ON/OFF button ). This will prevent
accidental modifications to wash cycles, especially when children are at
home.
To deactivate the control panel lock, press and hold the
button for
approximately 2 seconds.
TIPS AND SUGGESTIONS
Divide the laundry according to:
Type of fabric (cotton, mixed fibres, synthetics, wool, garments to be
hand-washed). Colour (separate coloured garments from whites, wash
new coloured garments separately). Delicates (small garments – such as
nylon stockings – and items with hooks – such as bras: insert them in a
fabric bag).
Empty the pockets:
Objects such as coins or lighters can damage the washing machine and
the drum. Check all buttons.
CARE AND MAINTENANCE
Before performing cleaning and maintenance, switch the washing machine
off and disconnect it from the mains power. Do not use flammable liquids to
clean the washing machine.
Cutting off the water and electricity supplies
Turn off the water tap after every wash cycle. This will limit wear on the
hydraulic system inside the washing machine and help to prevent leaks.
Unplug the washing machine when cleaning it and during all
maintenance work.
Cleaning the washing machine
The outer parts and rubber components of the appliance can be cleaned
using a soft cloth soaked in lukewarm soapy water. Do not use solvents or
abrasives.
The washing machine has a “Auto Clean” cycle for its internal parts; it must
be run without any load in the drum.
To activate the cycle, press the
button for 5 seconds then press START/
PAUSE
to start the cycle, which will last roughly 70 minutes.
A message on the display will regularly (roughly every 50 cycles) advise
the user to run the Auto Clean cycle to clean the washing machine and
combat limescale build-up and bad odours.
For optimal maintenance we suggest using WPRO Limescale and Grease
Remover, according to the instructions shown on the package.
The product can be purchased by contacting the technical assistance
service or through the website www.hotpoint.eu.
Hotpoint declines all liability for any damages to the appliance caused by
the use of other cleaning products for washing machines available on the
market.
Cleaning the detergent dispenser drawer
Remove the dispenser drawer by lifting and pulling it outwards. Wash it
under running water; this procedure should be effected regularly.
Caring for the door and drum
Always leave the porthole door ajar in order to prevent unpleasant odours
from forming.
Cleaning the pump
The washing machine is fitted with a Auto Clean pump which does not
require any maintenance. Small items (such as coins or buttons) may
sometimes fall into the protective pre-chamber situated at the base of the
pump.
! Make sure that the wash cycle has ended and unplug the appliance.
To access the pre-chamber:
1. remove the covering panel on the front side of the machine by
inserting a screwdriver in the centre and sides of the panel and using it as
a lever;
2. loosen the drainage pump cover by turning it anti-clockwise: it is
normal for some water to leak out;
3. clean the inside thoroughly;
4. screw the cover back on;
5. put the panel back in place, making sure the hooks slot in place before
pushing the panel onto the appliance.
Checking the water inlet hose
Check the inlet hose at least once a year. If it is cracked or broken, it must
be replaced: during wash cycles, the high pressure of the water could
suddenly split the hose open.
! Never use hoses that have already been used.
ANTIMICROBIAL SEAL
The seal around the porthole door is made from a special mixture
ensuring antimicrobial protection, thus reducing bacterial proliferation
up to 99.99%.
The seal contains zinc pyrithione, a biocidal substance which reduces the
proliferation of harmful microbes (*) such as batteries and mould prone to
causing stains, unpleasant odours and product deterioration.
(*) According to tests performed by the University of Perugia, Italy
on: Staphylococcus aureus, Escherichia coll, Pseudomonas aeruginosa,
Candida albicans, Aspergillus niger, Penicillium digitatum
In rare cases an allergic reaction may be caused by prolonged contact between
seal and skin.
ACCESSORIES
Contact our Technical Assistance Service to check whether the following
accessories are available for this washing machine model.
Stacking kit
With this accessory you can secure the tumble dryer to the upper part of
your washing machine to save space and facilitate loading and unloading
of the tumble dryer.
TRANSPORT AND HANDLING
Do not lift the washing machine by gripping it from the upper section.
Unplug the appliance and close the water tap. Check that the door and
detergent dispenser drawer are tightly closed. Detach the filling hose
from the water tap then detach the drain hose. Empty all the water
remaining in the hoses and secure the latter so that they do not get
damaged during transport. Apply the transport bolts back on. Repeat, in
reverse order, the transport bolt removal procedure described in the
“Installation instructions”.
TROUBLESHOOTING
Your washing machine could occasionally fail to work. Before contacting the Technical Assistance Service, make sure that the problem cannot be easily
solved using the following list.
