Removing the packaging reinforcements
To remove the packaging reinforcement lean the machine backward, take the reinforcement by pulling from the braid.
Removing the transportation safety bolts
Before operating the machine, the transportation safety bolts must definitely be removed. For this,
1.Loosen the bolts thoroughly by turning them anticlockwise with the help of a suitable wrench.
2.Pull off the transportation safety bolts.
3.Insert the plastic caps in the direction of arrow into the holes from where the transportation safety bolts are removed.
Please note! Keep the transportation safety bolts in a safe place in order to reuse them for any other transportation. Transport your washing machine with the transportation safety blots installed.
Adjusting the feet
Your machine must stand level and balanced on its feet in order to operate more silent and
First loosed the plastic counter nut on the adjustable feet of your machine.
After maintaining the balance by adjusting the feet, tighten the plastic counter nut upwards.
a) Water inlet hose
The specific hoses that come with the machine are connected to the water inlet valves on the machine. Red labeled hose is for hot water inlet and blue labeled hose is for cold water inlet.
"If you are going to use your double waterinlet machine as a single (cold)
If you want to use both water inlets of the product, you can connect the hot water hose after removing the stopper and gasket group from the hot water valve.
* Applies for the products supplied with a blind stopper group. "
Since the connection points are under water pressure, turn on the taps to the maximum after the connection. Check if there is any water leakage at the connection points. In order to prevent the water leakages and the damages they may cause, keep the taps closed when you are not using the machine.
Minimum 1 bar and maximum 10 bars of water flow from the tap is enough for your machine to operate efficiently. (In practice, 1 bar means that more than 8 liters of water per minute flows from a full open tap.)
Install the elbowed end of the hose to your machine.
Models with double water inlets can be used as a model with a single water inlet by using a plug. Plug should be installed to the hot water valve. A rubber gasket should be used in order to prevent water leakage from the connection point.
Do not connect the product with single water inlet to the hot water tap. The product may switch to the protection mode if the temperature of the water connected to a product with double water inlet through a Y part and single water inlet is above
a) Water drainage hose
Water drainage hose can be attached to the side wall of a sink or bathtub. Hose should not be bend. When the drainage hose is hanged on a sink or bathtub, it can be secured with a hose bracket so that it will not fall.
The end of drainage hose can be connected directly to the waste water drainage hole or to the specific end that is installed to the outlet elbow of the sink.
The hose should be installed to a height of 40 cm minimum and 100 cm maximum.

Plug in the grounded plug at the end of the power cable of the washing machine to a grounded wall outlet which is fed with suitable voltage and current.
•Please note the followings before start ing to wash your laundry:
-Have you plugged the machine?
-Have you connected the drainage hose as necessary?
-Have you closed the front door?
-Have you opened the tap?
•If you are installing your machine by yourself, please read the “Installation” section first.
•Separation of the laundries to be washed:
Please separate the laundries according to their types (cotton, linen, synthetic, woolen, etc.), dirtiness levels and washing temperature. Do not wash the white clothes along with the colored ones.
Remove solid objects such as belts, cuff links and curtain rods from the laundries or put them into a washing bag.
Empty the pockets. Zip and button up. It is recommended to place the very small laundries such as baby clothes into the big laundries such as pillowcases or put into a special
washing filet in order to prevent them from sticking between the bellows or slipping into the cauldron, pump filter, hose and etc.
For stained laundries, see the Practical and useful information section. Your machine can wash the woolen clothes with a “Machine Washable” or “Unfeltable” label in the special woolen program without damaging them. Sensitive clothes with a “Do not wash in the machine” or
•To open the front door, grab the handle and pull it. For your safety, the front door of your machine can only be opened when the machine is not operating. If the “ready” LED is on, the door can be opened.
•Loading the laundry into the machine:Place the laundries by spreading and
without compaction. Place your hand woven clothes into the machine by turning inside out. When closing the door, make sure that no laundry is in between the door and the rubber bellows.
Push the front door to close it. If the front door is not closed correctly, washing does not start.
• The selection of detergent and softener:
The detergent amount depends on the hardness of water, the amount of laundry and the dirtiness level of the laundry. Recommended amounts are written on the detergent package. If your laundries are not very dirty and/or your water has a low
hardness, use less detergent as recommended in the detergent packages. Otherwise you may encounter excessive foam.
You should use detergents that are developed especially for automatic washing machines. Avoid using bleachers that contain chlorine or sulfur.
Put the powder detergent and softener into the appropriate compartments in the detergent drawer and close the detergent drawer.
Pour the softener as recommended in the package (generally <100ml; i.e. 1 tea cup) Never exceed the “MAX” marking. If you put more, it will mix into the washing water
via siphon (III) and it will be wasted. In this case, it may be necessary to refill the softener. If the softener is condensed over time, it may be necessary to dilute with some water. Otherwise, condensed softener clog the siphon and block the flow.
