21 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.

PROTECTING THE ENVIRONMENT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS TRANSPORT / HANDLING
27 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 detergent dispenser compartment . • Particularly stubborn stains should be treated before the wash. LOADING THE LAUNDRY 1. Open the door. 2. Unfold the laundry and place it loosely in the drum. 3. Close the door. RECOMMENDED LOADS See separate programme chart. N.B. Overloading will result in unsatisfactory washing results and creased laundry. PREPARING THE WASH
28 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. DETERGENT AND ADDITIVES WATER HARDNESS Water hardness area Characteristics Germanscale °dH French scale °fH Clarke scale °eH 1 2 3 4 soft average hard very hard 0-7 7-14 14-21 over 21 0-12 12-25 25-37 over 37 0-9 9-17 17-26 over 26
29 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. See also separate programme overview. 1. Set Programme Selector to the desired programme. The indicator above the “Start/ Pause” button flashes and the programme duration is shown on the display (if available). 2. Select additional options, if desired, pressing the corresponding button.

33 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. TROUBLESHOOTING GUIDE
