Do not operate the washing machine at temperatures below 5°C.
 If you want to place a dryer on top of your washing machine, first contact our After-Sales Service or your specialist dealer to verify if this is possible. This is only admitted if the dryer is fixed on the washing machine by using an appropriate stacking kit available through our After-Sales Service or your specialist dealer.
 Do not leave the appliance plugged in when not in use.
 Turn off the tap when not in use.
 Before any cleaning and maintenance switch off the machine or disconnect it from the mains.  Never open the door forcibly or use it as a step.  If necessary, the power cable may be replaced with an identical one obtained from our After- Sales Service. The power cable must only be replaced by a qualified technician.
2.Packaging
 The packaging material is entirely recyclable, and marked with the recycling symbol . Adhere to current local regulations when disposing of packaging material.
3.Disposing of packaging and scrapping old washing machines
 The washing machine is built from reusable materials. It must be disposed of in compliance with current local waste disposal regulations.  Before scrapping, remove all detergent residues and cut off the power cable so that the washing machine is made unusable.
 This appliance is marked according to the European directive 2002/96/EC on Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE). By ensuring this product is disposed of correctly, you will help prevent potential negative consequences for the environment and human health, which could otherwise be caused by inappropriate waste handling of this product.
Black process 45.0° 130.0 LPI
The symbol on the product, or on the documents accompanying the product, indicates that this appliance may not be treated as household waste. Instead it shall be handed over to the applicable collection point for the recycling of electrical and electronic equipment. Disposal must be carried out in accordance with local environmental regulations for waste disposal. For more detailed information about treatment, recovery and recycling of this product, please contact your local city office, your household waste disposal service or the shop where you purchased the product. 4.Frost
Do not place the washing machine in a room prone to frost. If you must, make sure that the washing machine is completely drained after each wash:  Remove inlet hose(s) from water tap and let the water flow out completely.
 Remove drain hose from siphon or handwash basin and let the water flow out completely.  Empty residual water inside the machine by following the instructions in the chapter “Draining Residual Water”; tilt the appliance forward with two persons to let the rest water flow out completely.
5.Saving tipsThe water consumption of your washing machine is optimized; in some programmes you therefore cannot see the water through the door glass when the machine is in operation.
 Achieve the best use of energy, water, detergent and time by using the recommended maximum load size.
 Do not exceed the detergent dosages indicated in the manufacturer’s instructions.
 The Eco-Ball - a special system in the outlet - will prevent detergent loss from the drum to avoid detergent loss into the environment.  Use “Prewash” (if available on your model) for heavily soiled laundry only! Save detergent, time, water and energy consumption by not selecting “Prewash” for slightly to normally soiled laundry.  Pretreat stains with stain remover or soak dried- in stains in water before washing to reduce the necessity of a hot wash programme.  Save energy by using a 60° C instead of a 95° C wash programme or a 40° C instead of a 60° C wash programme.
 Save energy and time by selecting a high spin speed to reduce the water content in laundry before using a tumble dryer.

PREPARATION OF THE WASHING
1.Sort the laundry according to...  Type of fabric / care label symbol Cottons, mixed fibres, easy care/synthetics, wool, handwash items.
 Colour
Separate coloured and white items. Wash new coloured articles separately.
Size
Wash items of different sizes in the same load to improve washing efficiency and distribution in the drum.
 Delicates
Wash small items (e.g. nylon stockings, belts etc.) and items with hooks (e.g. bras) in a cloth bag or pillow case with zip. Always remove curtain rings or wash curtains with the rings inside a cotton bag. 2.Empty all pockets
Coins, safety pins etc. can damage your laundry as well as the appliance drum and tub. 3.Fasteners
Close zips and fasten buttons or hooks; loose belts or ribbons should be tied together.
Stain removal
 Blood, milk, eggs etc. are generally removed by the automatic enzyme phase of the programme.  To remove red wine, coffee, tea, grass and fruit stains etc. add a stain remover to the main wash chamber of the detergent dispenser.  Pre-treat heavily-soiled areas with stain remover if necessary.
Dyeing and bleaching
 Only use dyes and bleaches that are suitable for washing machines.
 Follow the Manufacturer’s instructions.  Plastic and rubber parts of the washing machine can be stained by dyes or bleaches.
Loading the laundry
1.Open the door.
2.Load the articles one at a time loosely into the drum, without overfilling. Observe the load sizes given in the programme chart.
Note: overloading the machine will result in unsatisfactory washing results and creased laundry. 3.Close the door.
DETERGENTS AND ADDITIVES
Keep detergents and additives in a safe, dry place out of the reach of children! The choice of detergent depends on:  Type of fabric (cottons, easy care/synthetics, delicate items, wool).
Note: Use only specific detergents for washing wool and garments made of microfibres (like sports or swimwear).
 Colour.
 The wash temperature.
 Degree and type of soiling.
Remarks:
 Any whitish residues on dark fabrics are caused by insoluble compounds used in phosphate-free powder detergents. If this occurs, shake or brush out the fabric or use liquid detergents.  Use only detergents and additives specifically produced for domestic washing machines.  When using descaling agents, dyes or bleaches for the prewash (if available on your model), make sure that they are suitable for use in domestic washing machines. Descalers could contain products which could damage your washing machine.
 Do not use any solvents (e.g. turpentine, benzine). Do not machine wash fabrics that have been treated with solvents or flammable liquids.  Do not use liquid detergent for the main wash when having activated the “prewash” option (if available on your model).
Black process 45.0° 130.0 LPI
 Do not use liquid detergent when activating the “Start Delay” function.
Dosage
Follow the dosage recommendations on the detergent pack. They depend on:
 degree and type of soiling
 size of wash
- full load: follow the detergent manufacturer’s instructions.
- half load: 3/4 the amount used for a full load. - minimum load (about 1 kg): 1/2 the amount used for a full load.
If there is no reference to a certain wash load on the detergent pack: the detergent manufacturers usually refer their dosing recommendations to 4.5 kg laundry for heavy duty detergent and 2.5 kg laundry for delicate detergent.  water hardness in your area (ask for information from your water company). Soft water requires less detergent than hard water.
Notes:
Too much detergent can result in excess foam formation, which reduces washing efficiency. If the washing machine detects too much foam, it may prevent spinning, or prolong the programme duration and increase the water consumption (see also remarks on foam formation in the “Troubleshooting Guide”).
Insufficient detergent may result in grey laundry and also calcifies the heating system, drum and hoses.
