7.2 Loading the appliance Load dry washing (max. 8 kg). • If washing normally soiled whites and coloureds, fill the washing drum. • If washing heavily soiled whites and coloureds, fill the washing drum max. 3⁄4 full. • If washing easy care cotton fabrics, white and coloured synthetic fabrics as well as mixed fabrics, fill the washing drum max. 1⁄2 full. • If washing delicates, woollens, silks, polya- crylics or net curtains, fill the washing drum max. 1⁄4 full. For wet loads, halve these load capacities. To prevent unbalanced spinning, vibration noise and interrupted spin- ning action, avoid loading the washing drum with any one single, heavy item. 7 WashingClose the appliance door (pushing firmly to).– In the plain text display appears: – The indicator lights for the programme buttons flash. 43 Select programme 15:38 If no programme selection is made within 20 seconds, all the displays go out. However, it is still possible to make a programme selection.

7.3 Adding washing detergent Pull the detergent dispenser drawer out as far as it will go. Powder detergent If using powder detergent, flap 1 in compart- ment II must be removed. Pull flap 1 upwards and out of position 3 and insert in position 2. 23 II1 Liquid detergent If using liquid detergent, flap 1 in compart- ment II must be inserted in position 3. 7 Washing 44 3 Pull flap 1 upwards and out of position 2 1 and insert in position 3. II2 Do not fill with liquid detergent past the upper mark. Liquid detergent can only be used for the main wash with programmes without a pre-wash. They are only suitable for temperatures of up to 60 °C. With 95 °C programmes, liquid detergents are not as effective as they do not contain bleach. Liquid detergents are best used with very gentle programmes (e.g. «Woollens» and «Hand wash»), low-temperature programmes and programmes with .

7 WashingLiquid detergent and a delayed start If a delayed start has been selected, after loading the washing the liquid deter- gent should be added to a dosing aid (e.g. ball). It is important that the liquid detergent does not spill onto the washing during the delayed start period, otherwise the washing could be damaged through a possible chemical reac- tion. Detergent dosage Adding too much washing detergent can cause excess foaming, giving a poor wash result and, in the worst case, causing damage to the appliance. The amount of detergent required depends on the degree of soiling as well as the wash load, the hardness of the water and the product being used. Follow the detergent manufacturer’s dosing instructions. The hardness of the water is measured using the French degree of water hard- ness (° fH) and is subdivided into three categories: • Soft 0 °fH to 15 °fH • Medium 15 °fH to 25 °fH • Hard over 25 °fH (NB Use water softener to reduce amount of washing detergent required.) The local water authorities can provide information on the level of water hard- ness in your area. 45 7 Washing Compartment Pre-wash detergent Add to compartment I I II Main detergent Add to compartment II Fabric conditioner (soft- ener) 46 Add to compartment Bio wash Alkaline detergent Add to compartment II Bleach Add to compartment I Fabric conditioner (softener) Add to compartment Soap wash Water softener Add to compartment I Soap detergent Add to compartment II Fabric conditioner (softener) Add to compartment Fabric conditioner Do not fill with fabric conditioner past the «MAX» mark. Do not use fabric conditioner if drying the washing in a tumble dryer. Tumble drying automatically leaves fabrics soft and fluffy. Soap detergent (softener + soap detergent) Select the additional «Soap wash» programme to wash with soap detergent. Since soap binds with lime, soap detergent should only be used when the water is soft or moderately hard (up to 25 °fH) and limescale protection is added. Soap scum can otherwise form and build up in the laundry and the appliance. Further, limescale build-up on the tub heating element can result in damage to the appliance. Dyeing textiles Textiles can be dyed in the appliance using suitable dyeing agents. Please follow the manufacturer’s safety instructions and warnings carefully. Each wash programme starts with brief draining and for this reason liquid dye components should be added after this. After adding the wash detergent Select main programme. 7.4 Selecting a programme «Press and go» A main programme can be started at the press of a single button.

10 Washing tips 10.1 Fabric care symbols To wash items correctly, please follow the fabric care symbols on the labels of the wash items. 10.2 Washing detergent The wash temperature selected should agree with the recommended tempera- ture range of the washing detergent to ensure the washing detergent is at its most effective. 10.3 General tips • Wash white and coloured textiles separately. • Empty pockets and turn inside out. Remove any foreign objects (coins, nails, paper clips, etc.). • Empty and brush out pockets of work overalls worn in the metal industry (metal shavings can damage the washing and cause rust stains). • Fasten duvet covers and pillow cases; close zips and hook and eye fasteners; fasten cloth belts and apron ties. • Wash smaller items (e.g. nylon tights, belts) and items with zips and hooks in a washing net or cushion cover. • Remove stains before washing using a suitable stain remover. • Pre-treat heavily soiled areas (collars, cuffs, etc.) with soap, special deter- gent or paste. • For medium or heavily soiled washing, select the additional pre-wash programme or select a heavier degree of soiling. • Wash woollens and other textiles with the fabric care label using the main hand wash programme only. Use detergent suitable for woollens and delicates. • Textiles, such as dog or horse blankets, that are covered in animal hair should be brushed out before washing 77 10.4 Net curtains If washing curtains made from mixed or man-made fibres: • Ask the retailer whether the curtains are machine washable and, if so, at what water temperature. • Fill the washing drum only a quarter full. • Tie up metal rollers and plastic sliders using an open weave fabric. • Use a mild detergent (use sparingly due to foaming). • With older, faded curtains, the material is weaker and may be easily damaged if machine washed. • A special programme is available for gently washing net curtains. 10 Washing tips 78 Select main programme 20 , 30 or 40 . Press the button repeatedly until «Net curtains» appears in the plain text display. 10 Washing tips10.5 Saving energy and water • Use the maximum wash load capacity of the particular programme. • Select «Pre-wash» or «Soaking» only for washing that is heavily soiled or stained. • For lightly soiled washing without staining select the main 20 programme or the additional «Sprint» function. • Select the additional Eco function if programme duration plays no role. Spin speed How much energy is consumed by subsequent tumble drying depends on the spin speed set. The higher the spin speed set, the lower the level of residual moisture in the washing at the end of the programme. rpm Residual moisture in cotton fabrics in % 1500 ~44 1400 ~47 1200 ~52 1000 ~60 800 ~70 600 ~90 400 ~110 Automatic door opener Use the appliance with the automatic door opener turned on. In this way, when the appliance door opens the appliance immediately enters the lowest possible stand-by power consumption state. 79 10 Washing tips 80 Adjust amount of detergent to water hard- ness and degree of soiling of washing. • Overloaded washing drum. Put less laundry into the washing drum. Washing feels hard to the touch Possible cause Solution • Poor rinse effect from «very soft» water (below 15 °fH). 10.6 Unsatisfactory wash results White residue on washing Possible cause Solution • Despite thorough rinsing, badly soluble compounds (zeolites) in the detergent can be left on the washing. Select the additional «Black garments» programme. Grey residue on washing Possible cause Solution • Grease and dirt particles have not been removed from fabric effectively. • Residue from detergent, limescale and dirt. Shake out or brush the wash items. Wash the items again with just a little washing detergent. Use a liquid detergent that does not contain zeolites. Use more detergent next time. Use heavy-duty washing detergent. Select the «Soft water» user setting.
