Load the laundry, close the door and add detergent as indicated
onthefrontpageandasdescribedinthechapter“Detergentand
Additives” in your Instructions for Use. Turn the programme
selector to the desired programme and temperature. The
display shows the programme duration, and the predefined spin
speed lights up. The “Start/Pause” indicator blinks.
The washing machine is designed to save energy, therefore, if
you have selected a programme but do not start it within about
a quarter of an hour, it will switch off automatically. To switch it
on again, turn the programme selector to “Off/O” and then to the
desired programme again..
Push the button of any option desired - the indicator lights up.
If the combination programme/option or option/option is not
possible, the indicator switches off automatically.
“Cold wash” button
• Saves energy used for water heating while maintaining a
good wash result.
• Recommendable for lightly soiled laundry without stains.
• Make sure that your detergent is suitable for cold wash
temperatures (15 or 20 °C).
“Rapid” button
• Enables quicker washing by shortening the programme
duration.
• Recommendable for only lightly soiled laundry.
“Clean +” button
• Choose this option if you use an in-wash additive for stain
removal (powder, for example “Vanish”) - it will optimize the
additive’s efficiency to get better wash performance and
stain removal.
• Use with maximum load.
• Add an appropriate amount of in-wash additive for stain
removal (powder) to the main wash chamber, together with
your detergent (only use powder detergent with this option).
Respect the manufacturer’s dosing instructions.
• May prolong the programme by up to 15 minutes.
Appropriate for use of stain removers and bleaches on oxygen
basis. Chlorine or perborate bleaches must not be used!
“Prewash” button
• Adds a prewash cycle to the wash programme selected;
prolongs the programme by about a quarter of an hour.
• Recommended for heavily soiled laundry (e.g. with sand or
granular dirt).
• Do not use liquid detergent for the main wash when
selecting “Prewash”.

Consumption values were measured in normalized conditions, in compliance with IEC/EN 60456. In the home, they may vary depending on the individual
water supply pressure and temperature, the load and the type of wash. The consumption data indicated are based on an inlet water temperature of approx.
15 °C through the cold fill valve as well as the hot fill valve (if available). If your washing machine has a hot fill valve, connection of this valve to hot water
supply will lower the energy consumption by reduced heating times, depending on the individual hot fill inlet water temperature.
Water and energy consumptions refer to the default setting of the programmes, with temperature and load as indicated in the table; selecting any options
or changing the spin speed will also change the consumption data.
The programme duration may differ from the values indicated above as it depends on the operation conditions applicable at that time (see also
“Troubleshooting Guide” in your Instructions for Use).
** To reduce the water temperature, some cold water is added at the end of the main wash cycle before the water is drained.
*** Automatic adaptation of programme duration after detection of wash load.
