2 Important Safety Instructions
BWARNING - To reduce the risk of fire,
electric shock or injury to persons
while using your appliance follow
basic safety precautions, including
the following:
• Read all instructions before using the
washer.
• Do not wash articles that have been
previously cleaned in, washed in,
soaked in, or spotted with gasoline,
dry-cleaning solvents, or other
flammable or explosive substances
(acetone, alcohol, kerosene, some
liquid household cleaners, some spot
removers, turpentine, waxes and wax
removers) as they give off vapors that
could ignite or explode.
• Do not add gasoline, dry-cleaning
solvents, or other flammable or
explosive substances to the wash
water. These substances give off
vapors that could ignite or explode.
• Under certain conditions, hydrogen
gas may be produced in a hot-water
system that has not been used for 2
weeks or more. HYDROGEN GAS IS
EXPLOSIVE. If the hot-water system
has not been used for such a period,
before using a washing machine,
turn on all hot-water faucets and
let the water flow from each for
several minutes. This will release any
accumulated hydrogen gas. As the
gas is flammable, do not smoke or
use an open flame this time.
• Do not allow children to play on or
in the appliance. Close supervision
of children is necessary when the
appliance is used near children.
• Before the appliance is removed from
service or discarded, remove the
door and the power cord / main plug
to prevent accidents.
• Do not reach into the appliance if
the drum is moving. Wait until the

• Hand knits (They should be placed
inside out in the washer)
CDo not wash dark colors with light
colors and whites. Color items may
bleed and white and light colored
items may be discolored. Avoid
extended contact of damp clothes
15
EN
before or after washing to prevent
dye transfer.
CWash heavily and lightly soiled items
separately.
CLint producers (towels, linen etc) and
lint collectors (easy care, permanent
press) should be washed separately.
Lint producers should be washed
inside-out.
Preparing the laundry
• Items of laundry with metal parts (e.g.
underwire bras, belt buckles, metal
buttons) will damage the washer.
Remove metal parts of place the
items in a cloth bag, pillow case, or
something similar.
• Remove any non-washable items
and accessories from laundry before
washing.
• Empty pockets, remove all foreign
objects (e.g. coins, pens, paper
clips). If possible: Turn pockets inside
out and brush.
• Place small items of laundry (e.g.
tights) in a cloth bag, pillow case or
something similar. This can also help
you to avoid searching for lost socks.
• Handle curtains special care. Remove
non-stainless curtain runners and
lead tape. Place runners that can’t be
removed in a cloth bag, pillow case
or something similar.
• Heavy stains should be pretreated
with soapy water appropriately before

stained area). If in doubt, check with
a chemist or dry-cleaner.
• Use only dyes/discoloring and antiscaling agents suitable for machine
wash. Make sure to follow the
instructions on the package.
AWARNING - Wash jeans, delicates,
pants and sweat-shirts inside-out.
Loading the washer
Maximum load capacity depends on the
fabric type of laundry, soiling amount of
laundry and program cycle you wish to
use.
CDo not exceed the maximum load
capacity of the selected program
16
cycle. Washing results are adversely
affected by an overloaded drum.
Overloading may also cause wrinkling
and abrasion on clothes.
Make sure power button is off before
loading the washer. To load the
washer,
• Pull the door handle.
• Place laundry items loosely in the
drum.
• Mix small and large items for an even
load distribution. Large items should
be loaded first. Large items should
not be more than half of the total
wash load.
• If you put a wash bag or net which
is filled with small items in the drum,
put an additional wash bag to
prevent load unbalance. Both wash
bags should have the same amount
of items to provide an even load
distribution.
• Before washing a single or a few
items such as a pillow, a teddy bear,
a single or a pair of shirts, sweat
shirts etc, put some additional items
in the drum for better load distribution
and spinning.
• Make sure that there is no clothing
obstructing the door or caught
between the door and rubber seal.
• Push the loading door firmly shut until
you hear it lock into space (especially
if you load the washer with full load or
big items).
• In case the door is not locked, “door” expression will appeare on the
screen. In that case, door should be
opened and closed again firmly.
• If the door is not closed completely,
the machine will not start. This is a
safety precaution. The front door
is locked until end of the washing
program and it can not be opened
untill the door icon on LCD is off
following the end of the program.
• Unload the washed items just after
the program cycle has finished. Delay
of unloading may cause wrinkling and
unwanted odor on laundry.
• Check to see any small metal items
such as pins, coins etc left in rubber
seal while unloading the washer.
EN
Any residual metal items may cause
rusting on the rubber seal.
• If there is any water left in rubber seal,
remove with a soft cloth.
Detergent Use
About Detergent
CYour washer is designed to use only
HE (high efficiency) detergents. You
should always look for the following
symbol on the label of detergents:
If you use a non-HE detergent with this
washer, high sudsing will occur. High
sudsing will decrease tumble action
effectiveness, washing and rinsing
performance worsen. Suds may flow
out of detergent dispenser giving
damage to your washer.
CThe detergents labeled as “HE
compatible” may also lead to high
sudsing and inefficient tumble action.
Don’t use such detergents.
Always follow the instructions and
information given by laundry detergent
manufacturers when using these
products.
AWARNING –Store laundry detergents
and additives in a cool, dry place out
of children’s reach due to danger of
chemical poisoning and skin irritation.
Detergent Quantity
The amount of washing detergent to use
depends on the amount of laundry, the
degree of soiling and water hardness.
For small amounts of laundry or only
slight soiling use accordingly less
detergent.
Too much detergent causes an
excessive amount of foaming, bad
washing and rinsing results and a strain
on water resources.
Too little washing detergent causes
laundry to turn grey and calcification of
the machine. Recommended amount of
17
powder detergent is max. 1/3 cup (80
ml). Recommended amount of liquid
detergent is max. 1/4 cup (60 ml).
Light soiling
No visible stains or soiling
Normal soiling
A few visible light stains or soiling
Heavy soiling
Highly visible stains or soiling
Detergent Dispenser
Detergent dispenser of your washer
has three separate compartments for
main wash detergent, fabric softener
and liquid bleach. Each of these laundry
additives are automatically dispensed at
appropriate time during wash program.
CDo not put laundry additives directly
in the wash drum. Always use the
detergent dispenser.
CAfter adding laundry additives do not
close the drawer too quickly. This
may cause early dispensing of the
additives thus poor wash results and
fabric damage.
CDo not open the drawer during wash
program (except for addition of liquid
main wash detergent at the beginning
of main wash water intake).
Dispenser compartments are as follows:
-left compartment numbered as “II”
(main wash compartment)
-middle compartment marked as “ ”
(liquid fabric softener compartment)
-right compartment numbered as “I”
(liquid chlorine bleach compartment)
(II) Main Wash Detergent
Compartment
Add HE (High efficiency) powder
detergent to this compartment
numbered as “II” before starting the
wash program.
EN
Use the detergent manufacturer’s
dosing cup and follow the instructions
on the package.
If you use a liquid detergent, be sure
to use a HE (High efficiency) detergent
and add detergent directly to main
wash compartment before operating
your washer. If you observe liquid
detergent stains on washed items,
it is recommended for subsequent
wash cycles that you should add liquid
detergent during first water intake.
Color-safe bleach in powder or liquid
form may be added into main wash
detergent compartment with main wash
detergent. Be sure to use main wash
detergent and color-safe bleach in same
form (either powder or liquid) when
adding into main wash compartment.
Liquid Fabric Softener Compartment
Add the recommended amount of
liquid fabric softener to the middle
compartment marked as “ ” and dilute
it with warm water to the maximum fill
line.
CEspecially concentrated fabric
softeners must be diluted with warm
water otherwise siphon may be
clogged in time.
Do not fill the fabric softener above the
maximum fill line as any excess amount
will mix into the wash water and you will
have to re-fill the compartment. Do not
pour the softener directly onto laundry, it
may cause stains.
Liquid fabric softener is automatically
dispensed during the final rinse of wash
program.
1/3 cup (80 ml) of bleach and pour it
into the special container located in the
right compartment of the dispenser.
This container ensures dispensing and
dilution of bleach during the first rinse
of wash cycle. There is a maximum fill
line on the container. Do not exceed
the maximum fill line to prevent early
dispensing. Early dispensing may
damage your clothes.
CBe sure that bleach container is
present in the right compartment
of dispenser before you add liquid
bleaching agent. You may remove
bleach container if you would not
use bleach. However do not put any
other laundry additives to the empty
compartment.
CBe sure to choose extra rinse option
if you are using bleach in wash
program. Bleach must be rinsed from
laundry properly otherwise it may
cause skin irritation.
Bleach is automatically dispensed and
diluted during the first rinse of wash
program.
CWARNING – Bleach may only
be used in Regular/Cotton and
Permanent Press cycles. Don’t
use bleach with delicates, hand
washables or wools, it will lead to
clothes damage.
Water Consumption
Your clothes washer automatically
adjusts the water consumption
according to load amount. This feature
ensures high wash performance
results with efficient water and energy
consumption.

and container are in their original
locations.
Cleaning the door seal
Be sure to check the rubber door seal
after unloading your washer. Pull the seal
back to search for any foreign objects.
Residual metal objects such as pins and
coins may form rust stains on rubber
seal, and cause the seal to leak.
Wipe the stained areas with soapy
water using a damp cloth. Then wipe
with a dry cloth properly. Do not use an
abrasive scrubbing agent when cleaning
29
Cleaning the drum
Check the wash drum for any foreign
objects after unloading your washer.
Residual metal objects such as pins
and coins may form rust stains on drum
surface and your clothes. Do not use
abrasive materials while cleaning the
inner surface of the drum. Use soapy
water with a damp cloth to wipe the
inner surface, then dry it and leave the
door open to let inside dry properly.
Sanitary cycle with extra rinse option
should be used for monthly cleaning of

filter.
Cleaning the water inlet
strainers
There is a strainer at the end of each
water inlet valve at the back side of
the washer and also at the end of
each water inlet hose where they
are connected to the faucets. These
strainers prevent the foreign substances
and dirt in the water to enter into the
washer. Strainers should be cleaned
from time to time.
• Close the water faucets.
• Remove the nuts of the water inlet
hoses to clean the surfaces of the
strainers on the water inlet valves with
an appropriate brush.
In addition, water may have to be
drained off completely in the following
cases:
• before transporting the appliance
(e.g. when moving )
• when there is a danger of frost
In order to clean the dirty filter and
discharge the water;
1- Disconnect or unplug the washer
from the power supply.
AWARNING - There may be water at
158F (70°C) in the drum. Therefore,
the filter must be cleaned only after
the inside water is cooled down to
avoid hazard of scalding.
2- Open the filter cap. The filter cap
may be composed of one or two pieces
according to the model of your washer.
If it is composed of two pieces, press
the tab on the filter cap downwards and
pull the piece out towards yourself.
• If the strainers are very dirty, you can
pull them out by means of pliers and
clean them.
• Take out the strainers on the flat ends
of the water inlet hoses together with
the rubber seals and clean thoroughly
under running water.
• Replace the rubber seals and
strainers carefully and tighten the
hose nuts by hand.
If it is composed of one piece, hold it
from both sides and open it by pulling
out.
Cleaning the drain pump filter
Filter system in your washer prevents
solid items such as buttons, coins and
fabric fibers clogging the pump impeller
during discharging of the washing
water. Thus, a good water discharge is
achieved and the pump life is extended.
• If your washer fails to drain the water,
the pump filter may be clogged. You
may have to clean it occasionally to
prevent any clogging. Water must be
drained completely to clean the pump
30
3- An emergency drain hose is supplied
with your washer.
Do the following as shown in the figure
below:
• Pull out the emergency drain hose
from its housing.
EN
Take the manufacturer’s instructions
into account if you are using a
descaling agent. Descaling agents
may contain materials that are
hazardous for washer components.
Use descaling agents compatible for
use in clothes washers.
• Place a large container at the end of
the hose. Drain the water off into the
container by pulling out the plug at
the end of the hose. If the amount of
water to be drained off is greater than
the volume of the container, replace
the plug, pour the water out, then
resume the draining process.
• After draining process is completed,
replace the plug into the end of the
hose and fit the hose back into its
place.
• When there is no water left, turn the
pump filter until it is completely loose
and remove it.
• Clean any residues inside the filter
as well as fibers, if any, around the
impeller region.
• Never force the filter while replacing it
into its housing. Fit the filter fully into
its housing; otherwise, water may
leak from the filter cap.
When using a powder descaling
agent, add 1 cup to the main wash
compartment of the dispenser and
run a regular hot cycle (with extra
rinse) without any clothes and
detergents.
4- Close the filter cap.
Close the two-piece filter cap of your
product by pushing the tab on it.
Close the one-piece filter cap of your
product by fitting the tabs on the bottom
into their positions and pushing the
upper part of it.
Descaling the washer
Hard water can cause scale buildup inside the drum and other parts
of your washer in time. Scaling may
lead to some serious problems such
as clogging in hoses, heater or pump
failure eventually.
To prevent scaling, wash drum should
be cleaned frequently. Do not use
abrasive materials such as metal wool
while cleaning the drum.
