Operating Instructions

1 Safety

Prior to using the appliance for the first time

Follow the “Installation and connection instructions”.

If the appliance is delivered in the winter months when there are minus temperatures: store the washing machine at room temperature for 24 hours before using for the first time.

Correct use

The washing machine is only designed for the washing of normal domestic laundry at home.

Additions or modifications to the washing machine are not permitted.

Only use detergents/conditioners that are suitable for use in domestic washing machines.

The washing must not contain any flammable solvent. The risk of explosion exists.

Do not use the washing machine for dry cleaning.

Dyes/colour removers may only be used in the washing machine, if the manufacturer of these products expressly permits this. We cannot accept liability for any damage arising.

Child safety

Keep packaging away from children. There is a risk of suffocation.

Children often do not recognise the hazards associated with electrical appliances. Don’t allow children to use the washing machine unsupervised.

Make sure that children and pets don’t climb into the drum of the washing machine. The risk of death exists.

General safety

Repairs to the washing machine may only be carried out by qualified/ authorised service engineers.

Never use the appliance when the electrical cable is damaged or the control panel, worktop or plinth area are damaged to such an extent that the inside of the appliance is openly accessible.

5

Switch off the washing machine prior to cleaning it and carrying out maintenance. In addition, remove the power plug from the power point or – if the appliance has been hard-wired – switch off the cutout in the fuse box or completely remove the fuse.

If operation is stopped, disconnect the appliance from the mains supply and turn off the tap.

Never remove the power plug from the power point by pulling on the cable. Always pull the plug.

Multiway-plugs, connectors and extension cables must not be used.

Resulting overheating may constitute a fire hazard.

Never wash the washing machine down with a water jet. Danger of electric shock.

When using wash programmes with high temperatures the glass in the door will become hot. Do not touch it!

Before emergency emptying of the appliance, before cleaning the drain pump or opening the door in an emergency, let the water cool down.

Small animals can nibble on electrical cables and water hoses. This can constitute a risk of electrocution and water damage. Keep small animals away from the washing machine.

Disposal

2 Packaging material

The packaging materials are environmentally friendly and can be recycled. The plastic components are identified by markings, e.g. >PE<, >PS<, etc. Please dispose of the packaging materials in the appropriate container at your local waste disposal facilities.

2 Old appliance

Please dispose of your old appliance in line with the guidelines for disposal in your area.

1 Warning: When your appliance has finished its working life, remove the plug from the mains socket. Cut off the cable and plug and dispose of them.

Destroy the door lock. This prevents children from trapping themselves inside and endangering their lives.

2. Separate washing and load it loosely. Mix large and small items. Important: Do not get any washing caught between the door and the rubber seal.

3.Firmly push the door shut. Door catch must audibly click shut.

Adding detergent /conditioner

Important: Only use detergents/conditioners that are suitable for use in household washing machines.

Add detergent/conditioner in accordance with the detergent/conditioner manufacturer’s instructions. Observe instructions on the packaging. The amount of detergent used depends on:

the degree of soiling,

the load size

the hardness of the tap water.

If the manufacturer does not make any recommendations with regard to small volumes of washing: For a half-load use a third less, and for a very small load use only the half the amount of detergent that is recommended for a full load.

Water softener should be used from water hardness range 2 (=medium). The amount of detergent used can then always be that as for hardness range 1 (=soft). Your local water company will provide you with information about water hardness in your area.

11

1.Pull out the detergent drawer as far as it will go.

2.Add the detergent/conditioner.

If the wash result is not satisfactory

The washing is grey and there are limescale deposits in the drum

Too little detergent was used.

An incorrect detergent was used.

Individual stains were not pre-treated.

The programme or temperature was not set properly.

There are grey stains on the washing

Items that were soiled with ointments, fats or oils were washed using too little detergent.

The wash temperature used was too low.

A common cause is that conditioner – in particular the type in concentrated form - has come in contact with the washing. Wash out such marks as soon as possible and exercise care when using the said conditioner.

Foam can still be seen following the final rinse

Modern detergents can cause foam to be created even during the final rinse. In spite of this, the washing has been sufficiently rinsed.

20

There are white residues on the washing

What can be seen here are insoluble substances which modern detergents contain.

They are not the result of insufficient rinsing.

Shake or brush the washing. If possible turn the washing inside out before washing. Check your selection of detergent and perhaps use liquid detergent instead.

Carrying out an emergency drain

1 Warning! Prior to carrying out an emergency drain, switch off the washing machine and remove the power plug from the power point. Warning! The water that comes out of the emergency drain hose may be hot. There is a risk of scalding. Let the water cool before performing an emergency drain!

1. Open the plinth flap and remove it.

2. Remove the emergency drain hose.

3. Place a shallow container underneath it. Then loosen the drain plug by turning it in an anti-clockwise direction and pull it out.

4. The water will run out. If it is necessary to empty the container more than once, seal up the emergency drain hose with the drain plug while you are doing so.

When the water has all drained away:

5.Insert the plug firmly into the emergency drain hose and turn it in a clockwise direction until it is firmly in place.

6.Replace the emergency drain hose into the retainer.

7.Insert the plinth flap into place and close it.

21

Drain pump

The drain pump is maintenance-free. It is only necessary to open the pump cover if there is a malfunction and water is no longer being pumped out, e.g. if the pump wheel is blocked.

Before loading the machine, please always ensure that there are no foreign bodies present in the pockets or in between the items to be washed. Paper clips, nails, etc. which may find their way into the washing machine along with the washing will remain in the drain pump housing (foreign body trap that protects the pump wheel).

1 Warning! Before opening the cover of the drain pump, switch off the washing machine and remove the power plug from the power point.

1.First carry out an emergency drain.

2.Place a cloth on the floor in front of the cover of the drain pump. Residual water runs out.

3.Unscrew the pump cover in an anti- clockwise direction and remove it.

4. Remove foreign bodies and fluff from the pump housing and from the pump wheel.

5. Check whether the pump wheel right at the back of the pump housing can turn. (If the wheel rotates with a jerky motion, this is normal.) If the pumping wheel cannot be turned, please contact your local Service Force Centre..

6. Insert the pump cover. Insert the guides at the sides of the cover into the guide slots and tighten the cover by turning in a clockwise direction.

7.Close off the emergency drain hose and place it in the retainer.

8.Close the plinth flap.

29

Connecting the appliance to the water supply

Important:

This appliance must not be connected to the hot water supply.

When connecting the appliance, use only new hose kits.

Only connect the appliance to the drinking water supply. Rain water or water for industrial use may only be used if it fulfils the requirements of DIN1986 and DIN1988.

Do not kink or crush the water inlet hose or drain hose.

Permitted water pressure

The water pressure must be at least 1 bar (=10N/cm2 =0.1MPa), and may be a maximum of 10bar (=100N/cm2 =1MPa).

If more than 10bar: Connect a pressure reduction valve.

If less than 1bar: Disconnect the appliance end of the inlet hose from the solenoid inlet valve and remove the flow meter. (In addition remove the filter using pointed pliers and take out the rubber gasket behind it.) Replace the filter.

30

Water inlet

A 1.35m long pressure hose is supplied with the appliance.

If a longer inlet hose is required, only hoses from the manufacturer are to be used. Service Force stocks hose kits of different lengths.

3 Sealing rings are either inserted in the plastic nuts of the threaded hose fitting or are included as spare parts. Do not use any other sealing rings.

Important! All threaded hose fittings must only be tightened by

hand. 1. Connect the hose with the right-an-

gle connector to the machine.

Important! Do not position the inlet hose vertically downwards. Position it to the right or the left as shown in the illustration.

2. Connect the hose with the straight connector to a water tap with an R ¾ (inch) screw thread.

3. Slowly turn on the tap and check that all connections are watertight.

31

Water Drainage

The appliance drain hose should hook into a standpipe, the hook in the drain hose is formed using the plastic “U-Piece“ supplied. The standpipe should have an internal diameter of approximately 38 mm (see diagram) thus ensuring there is an air break between the drain hose and standpipe.

Important! It is essential to lay the drainage hose without kinks. When discharging into a stand-

pipe ensure that the top of the curve in the hose end is no more than 90 cm (35.4’’) and no less than 60 cm (23.6’’) above floor level.

The upright standpipe should have a minimum, length of 30 cm (12’’) from the bottom of the el-

bow to the top of the pipe (see diagram). Make sure that it is designed in such a way that the end of the drain hose cannot be covered with water.

Longer drain hoses are available in lengths of 2.7 and 4 metres

from your Service Force Centre.

For drainage into an outlet

spigot: If the outlet spigot has not

been used before, remove any blank-

ing plug that may be in place. Push the drain hose onto the spigot and

secure with a clip if required. Ensure the drain hose is looped upwards to prevent waste water from the sink

entering the washing machine.

Important! The end of the drainage hose must not be submerged in the pumped-out water. Otherwise, the water could be sucked back into the appliance.

32

Pumping heights of over 1 metre

The washing machine’s drain pump is able to pump water to a height of 1metre, calculated from the surface on which the appliance is installed. Important! If pumping height is over 1 metre malfunctions and damage to the appliance may arise.

For pumping heights over 1metre a conversion kit can be obtained. Please contact Service Force Centre.
