For safety reasons spinning is not
possible until the machine has been
prepared for using for the first time. To
activate the spinning function you must
run a wash programme without laundry
and without detergent.

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.
