FIRST TIME USE
To remove any manufacturing debris select the “Cotton“ programme at a temperature of 95°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.
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 display shows the duration of the selected programme (in hours and minutes), and the indicator for the “Start/Pause“ button flashes. The temperature and spin speed can be changed by pressing the “Temperature“ °C button or 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. If this is the case, an animation appears on the time display.
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.
DOOR OPEN INDICATOR
Before starting and after the end of a programme, the “Door 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 “Door 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.

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 fifibres, 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.
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.
Follow the dosage recommendation / additives
It optimizes the cleaning result, it avoids irritating residues of surplus detergent in your laundry and it saves money by avoiding waste of surplus detergent
Use low temperature and longer duration
The most efficient programmes in terms of energy consumption are generally those that perform at lower temperatures and longer duration.
Observe the load sizes
Load your washing machine up to the capacity indicated in the “PROGRAMME CHART” table to save water and energy.
Noise and remaining moisture content
They are influenced by the spinning speed: the higher the spinning speed in the spinning phase, the higher the noise and the lower the remaining moisture content.
CLEANING & MAINTENANCE
For any cleaning and maintenance, switch off and unplug the washing machine. Do not use flammable fluids to clean the washing machine. Clean and maintain your washing machine periodically (at least 4 times per year).
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.
Clean regularly, at least three or four times a year, to prevent detergent buildup:
Press the release buttonto 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.
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 screw-driver 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.
The washing machine may sometimes not work properly for certain reasons. Before calling the After-sales service, it is recommended to check to see if the problem can be easily resolved using the following list.
|Anomalies:||Possible causes / Solution:|
|The washing machine does not turn on nd/ or programme does not start||• The plug is not inserted into the electrical outlet, or not enough to make contact.
• There has been a power failure.
• Lid is not properly closed.
• The “Child lock“3 sec function has been activated (if available).
• The washing machine switched off automatically to save energy, before programme start or after programme end. To switch on the washing machine, turn the programme selector first to “Off/O” and then to the desired programme again.
|The wash cycle does not start.||• The “Start/Pause“ button has not been pressed.
