washing machine.


1. Remove the packaging and check
a. Cut and remove the shrink-wrap.
b. Remove the top protection and the protective
c. Remove the bottom protection by tilting and
turning the washing machine on one rear
bottom corner. Make sure that the black
plastic part of the bottom protection (if
available on the model) remains in the packing
and not in the machine bottom.
This is important, as otherwise the plastic part could
damage the washing machine during operation.
d. Open the lid by pressing it slightly down while
raising the handle. Remove the polystyrene cushion
(depending on model).
e. Remove the blue protective film from the panel
(depending on model).
• After unpacking, make sure that the washing machine is
undamaged. If in doubt, do not use the washing machine.
Contact After-Sales Service or your local retailer.
• Keep the packaging materials (plastic bags,
polystyrene parts, etc.) out of reach of children;
they are potentially dangerous.
• If the appliance was exposed to the cold prior to
delivery, keep it at room temperature for a few
hours before operating.
2. Remove the transport bracket
• The washing machine is fitted with transport screws
and a transport bracket to prevent damage during
transport. Before using the washing machine
you must remove the transport bracket (see
"Installation"/"Removal of transport bracket").
3. Install the washing machine
• Place the washing machine on a flat and stable floor
• Adjust the feet to ensure that the machine is stable
and level (see "Installation"/"Adjust the feet").
• In case of wooden or so-called "floating floors" (for
instance certain parquet or laminate floors), place
the appliance on a 40 x 60 cm sheet of plywood at
least 3 cm in thickness which is secured to the floor.
• Make sure that the ventilation openings in the base
of your washing machine (if available on your model)
are not obstructed by a carpet or other material.
4. Water supply
• Connect the water supply inlet hose in accordance
with the regulations of your local water company
(see "Installation"/"Connect the water inlet hose").

• Keep these Instructions for Use and the Programme
Chart; if you pass on the washing machine to
another person, also give him/her Instructions for

• Only use new hoses for connecting the washing
machine to the water supply. Used hoses must not
be used anymore and should be discarded.
5. Drain hose
• Connect the drain hose to the siphon or hook it
over the edge of a sink with the "U" bend (see
"Installation"/"Connect the water drain hose").
• If the washing machine is connected to a built-in
drainage system, ensure the latter is equipped with
a vent to avoid simultaneous loading and draining of
water (siphoning effect).
6. Electrical connection

qualified technician in compliance with the
manufacturer's instructions and the current
standard safety regulations.
• The technical data (voltage, power and fuses) are given

mains supply via a double-pole switch must be ensured
at all times following the installation.
• Do not operate the washing machine if it has been
damaged during transport. Inform the After-Sales Service.
• Mains cable replacement is only to be carried out by
After-Sales Service.
• The washing machine must be connected to an effective
earthing installation, in compliance with the regulations
in force. In particular, washing machines installed in
premises containing a shower or a bath must be
protected by a differential residual current device of at
least 30 mA. Earthing the washing machine is obligatory
under the law. The manufacturer declines all liability for
injury to persons or animals or damage to property
deriving either directly or indirectly from failure to
observe the directions in these Instructions for Use.
• The washing machine may only be used in the
household for the prescribed uses.
