Operating the appliance en 25 Placing laundry into the drum :Warning Danger of death! Items of laundry pretreated with cleaning agents that contain solvents, e.g. stain remover/cleaning solvent, may cause an explosion after being loaded into the washing machine. Hand-rinse items of laundry thoroughly beforehand. Notes ■ Mix items of laundry of varying sizes. Laundry items of different sizes distribute themselves better during the spin cycle. Individual items of laundry may lead to imbalances. ■ Observe the specified maximum load. Overfilling has a negative impact on the washing result and promotes creasing. 1. Place presorted items of laundry unfolded in the washing drum. 2. Make sure that no items of laundry are trapped between the washing machine door and the rubber seal, and close the door. The A button indicator lamp flashes to indicate that the washing program can be started. It is possible to change the settings. ~ "Dyeing/bleaching" on page 20~ "Spin speed" on page 21 Measure and add detergent and care products Caution! Damage to the appliance Cleaning agents and agents for pretreating laundry (e.g. stain removers, prewash sprays, etc.) may cause damage if they come into contact with the surfaces of the washing machine. Do not allow these agents to come into contact with the surfaces of the washing machine. If necessary, immediately wipe away spray residue and other residues/ droplets with a damp cloth. Measuring Measure the detergent and care products according to: ■ Water hardness; ask your water supply company ■ The manufacturer's instructions on the packaging ■ The amount of laundry ■ Soiling Filling :Warning Eye/skin irritation!
