YOUR ELECTRONIC WASHING MACHINE GB
This washing machine is equipped with all-electronic control, which opens up a host of possibilities for
you. Amongst others, these include: precise determination of load, Dynamic-Sense Technology,
imbalance detection and correction system, fast programme changing, accurate programme sequence
indicator, start delay, soaking, safety feature “intelligent (anti-flood) Water Stop system”.
• The load determining facility evaluates the laundry load at the start of the wash cycle and
optimises the washing procedure accordingly. The machine adapts automatically to the prevailing
circumstances: if you are washing a minimum load, the programme carries out only two rinse cycles
during the cotton and synthetics programmes, while keeping the rinse results very good. You save
on water, energy and time as a result.
• Thanks to its Dynamic-Sense Technology the appliance adapts optimally to the prevailing
circumstances, achieving favourable consumption figures even in the case of small loads. Water
supply temperature and pressure, quantity of water and degree of loading, are the parameters taken
into account. The progamme duration is influenced by these factors. This is checked and updated
at particular stages of the programme. Consequently, the programme duration can vary by up to 60
minutes.
• The imbalance detection and correction system protects your washing machine if the
imbalance is too great on initiating a spin cycle. This may occur with a badly distributed load or in
the case of single large laundry item. The laundry is re-distributed and the spin speed is not
increased until satisfactory laundry distribution has been achieved.
• If you happen to have selected the wrong programme, you can quickly change programme at any
time, without needing to add new detergent. Select the desired programme and start the
appliance. The new program resumes the wash programme at the same stage at which the
preceding one was interrupted.
• The accurate sequence indicator shows what stage of the programme has been reached by
LED indicators coming on: after starting the programme, the programme sequence indicator
moves from left to right passing through “Wash”, “Rinse”, “Spin”. Once the current stage of the
programme has been completed that LED indicator goes out.
The washing process is subdivided into three phases which corresponds to the three wash LEDs:
1. Enzyme phase: at low temperature, organic soiling such as e.g. blood, milk and egg are
dissolved.
2. Heating-up phase: the water is heated up to the selected washing temperature.
3. Washing phase: the laundry is washed and, if the temperature is raised, whitened.
• Using the “Start Delay” option (if present) you can select the programme start time from 1 to 19
hours in advance. You can set the programme start time so that the laundry will be completed by a
particular time, thus allowing you to take advantage of favourable lower electricity tariffs at night.
• In order to soak particularly heavily soiled colourfast laundry, select the “Coloured” programme and,
once the water has been fed in, press the “Start/Pause” button. The programme is interrupted and
you can leave the laundry to soak as long as you want.
You can continue the programme by pressing the “Start/Pause” button once again.
• Depending on the washing machine type, it may be equipped with the anti-flood safety feature
“intelligent Water Stop system”: Even while switched off your washing machine is able to detect
water leakage and brings this to your attention with an audible alarm.

1. Sort the laundry according to…
• Type of fabric / care label symbol
Cottons, mixed fibres, easy care/synthetics,
wool, handwashed items.
• Colour
Separate whites and coloureds. Wash new
coloured items separately.
• Size
Wash items of different sizes in the same load
to improve washing efficiency and distribute
the load more evenly inside the drum.
• Fabric delicacy
Wash delicate articles separately: use a
special programme for Pure New Wool ,
curtains and other delicates. Always remove
curtain glides or wash curtains with the glides
inside a cotton bag.
Use the special program for handwash
fabrics.
Wash stockings, belts and other small items or
articles with hooks (e.g. bras) in special cotton
bags for washing machines or in zipped pillow
cases.
2. Empty pockets
Coins, safety pins and similar can damage
your laundry and the appliance drum and tub.
3. Fasteners
Close zips and fasten buttons or hooks; loose
belts or ribbons should be tied together.
STAIN REMOVAL
• Blood, milk, egg and other organic substances
are generally removed by the enzyme phase
of the programme.
• To remove red wine, coffee, tea, grass and
fruit stains etc. add a stain removing agent in

CHOOSING THE RIGHT DETERGENT
The type of detergent depends on:
• type of fabric (cottons, easy care/synthetics,
delicate items, wool).
Note: use only specific detergents for wool.
• colour;
• washing temperature;
• degree and type of soiling.
Notes:
• Whitish residues on dark fabrics are caused
by insoluble detergents components used in
modern phosphate-free powder detergents.
If you notice this problem, shake or brush the
affected items or use a liquid detergent.
• Keep detergents and additives in a dry place
and out of reach of children.
• Use only detergents and additives specifically
produced for domestic washing machines.
• If you use descaling agents, dyes or bleaches,
make sure they are suitable for washing
machine use. Descaler could contain
components that can attack parts of your
washing machine.
• Do not use solvents (turpentine, benzine,
etc.).
Do not machine wash fabrics that have been
treated with solvents or flammable liquids.
DOSAGE
Follow the instructions on the detergent pack in
relation to:
• the degree and type of soiling;
• the size of the load;
- full load: follow the detergent
Manufacturer’s instructions;
- half load: 3/4 the amount used for a full
load;
- minimum load (about 1 kg): half the
amount used for a full load;
• water hardness in your area (ask for
information from your water company): soft
water requires less detergent than hard water.
Notes:
• Too much detergent can result in excess foam
formation, which reduces washing efficiency.
If the appliance detects excessive foam it may
prevent spinning.
• The laundry will become grey if you use too
little detergent. Too little detergent will also
lead to increased scale deposits on the
heating element and drum.
Adjust the water hardness level pointer in the detergent dispenser in accordance with the hardness of
the water in your area. Move the pointer sideways to the required position.
FILLING THE DETERGENT AND
ADDITIVES
1. Pull out the detergent dispenser completely,
until the limit.
2. Add the detergent:
• Programme with pre and main wash
• Main wash programme without prewash
When using liquid detergent, remove the
coloured insert and fit it in compartment .
The graduate scale on the insert
makes dosing easier.
• Fabric softeners (no more “MAX” mark)
• Stain remover agents
• Water softeners (water hardness 4)
• Starch (dissolved in water)
3. Close the detergent dispenser completely.

Notes:
• You can use liquid detergent in the “Prewash”
phase for programmes with this option. In this
case use only powder detergents for the main
wash.
• If the “Start Delay” option is used, put liquid
detergent into the drum with a detergent ball.
• When using concentrated fabric softeners,
add water in the detergent dispenser up to
“MAX” level mark.
• To prevent dispensing problems when using
highlyconcentratedpowderandliquiddetergents,
use the special detergent ball supplied with the
detergent and place it inside the drum.
Dyeing: Usual products consist of dye colour,
fixing agent and salt. Pour the dye colour, the
fixing agent and then the salt directly into the
empty drum. Fill in the laundry only afterwards.
• Use exclusively dyes and bleaches
recommended for washing machines.
• Follow the Manufacturer’s instructions.
• Plastic and rubber parts of the machine may
be stained by dyes or bleaches.

This washing machine is equipped with automatic
safety functions which detect and diagnose faults
at an early stage and react appropriately.
Often, however, the faults detected are small
enough to be solved in a matter of minutes.
For example:
The appliance will not start, no lamp
lights up.
Check whether:
• the appliance is plugged in;
• the wall socket is functioning correctly
(use a table lamp or similar).
The appliance will not start, but the
“Start/Pause” lamp is flashing.
Check whether:
• the appliance door is properly closed
(child safety);
• a programme has been selected and the
programme is started;
• the water tap is open.
The appliance stops during the
programme.
Check whether:
• the “Rinse Hold” lamp is flashing, terminate
this option by pressing the button again;
• another programme has been selected.
Reselect the desired programme and press
the “Start/Pause” button;
• “Start/Pause” lamp is flashing. Press “Start/
Pause” button;
• the door was opened and the “Start/Pause”
lamp is flashing. Press it again;
• Safety system of the appliance was activated.
See fault description table.
Detergent and additive product residues
in dispenser at end of wash.
Check whether:
• the siphon is correctly installed and clean
(see “Care and Maintenance”);
• enough water is being supplied. The mesh
filters could be clogged (see “Care and
Maintenance” / “Water Hose Mesh Filters”).
The appliance vibrates during the spin
cycle.
Check whether:
• the appliance is level and solidly installed on
all four feet (see “Installation Instructions”);
• the transit bolts have been removed. The
transit bolts must be removed before the
appliance can be used (see “Installation
Instructions”).
Final spin results are poor:
The appliance has an imbalance detection and
correction system. If individual heavy articles are
loaded (bathmat, bathrobe, etc.) this system may
reduce the spin speed automatically to protect the
appliance or even interrupt the spin cycle
altogether, if the imbalance is too great even after
several spin starts.
• If the laundry is still too wet at the end of the
cycle, add smaller articles of laundry to
balance the load and repeat the spin cycle.
• Excessive foam formation may prevent
spinning. Ensure correct amount of detergent
is used.
