This washing machine has undergone
a complete functional test at the fact-
ory and there will be some residual
water in the drum from this process.
For safety reasons, spinning is not pos-
sible until the machine has been pre-
pared for using for the first time. To ac-
tivate the spinning function you must
run a wash programme without laundry
and without detergent.
Using detergent could result in an ex-
cessive build-up of foam.
This also activates the ball valve. The
ball valve prevents detergent escaping
from the suds container into the sump
during a wash programme, thus making
maximum use of the detergent.
