Check coin trap

For a step by step guide on how to check the coin trap, please proceed to the next step.

Has this resolved the problem?

Never remove any objects from the coin trap while the washing machine is switched on, still running or paused during a wash. Always cancel cycle, switch off machine and allow the water to cool before opening the coin trap.

How to empty the coin trap when a blockage has occurred

Place a tray or shallow dish underneath the coin trap.

Using the Dyson spanner, lever the plug in the middle of the coin trap. The water will drain from the plug.

If the tray or dish is full, push the plug into its original position by hand, empty the tray or dish and repeat the process.

Once the water has been removed (a small quantity of water will remain below the level of the plug), lift and hold the childproof tab using a small screwdriver or the reverse end of the Dyson spanner. Turn the window anti-clockwise until it is released.

Remove any objects from the coin trap.

If any more items seem to be blocking the coin trap, pull out the flow accelerator cap.

Remove any items and firmly push the flow accelerator back into place.

How to replacing the coin trap window

Ensuring the seal is in place, lubricate with a drop of washing up liquid.

Make sure the plug is pushed back into the closed position.

Line up the ears at 12 o’clock position and rotate 360°clockwise until it clicks into child proof tab at top.

Always wash hands after handling the coin trap.

Detergent use

To open the soap tray, press the hand symbol on the soap tray.

Do not try to pull out the soap tray without first pressing it in.

Add detergent to the compartment marked 2 for all the main wash programmes.

For a pre-wash option, add detergent to the compartment marked 1.

Fabric conditioner can be added to the compartment marked with a symbol to the level indicated. Do not overfill.

Push the soap tray in to close it, ensuring it clicks in place.

Please note: we advise that you only use powder suitable for automatic washing machines.

Please select the appropriate option

Detergent format

Place wash balls and nets directly into the drums of the washing machine.

Do not

Do not place wash balls or tablets in drums when using the start delay option (selected models only). This could fade coloured laundry if the detergent touches the fabric before the water soaks the laundry.

Do not

Do not place detergent into the drums when using a pre-wash as it will be used before the main wash. Instead, use the soap tray.

Do not

Do not cover wash balls or tablets with laundry, as this can inhibit the dispersal of detergent.

Do not

Do not stop the wash for long periods of time once it has started. The detergent may not have had time to disperse and concentrations may damage the laundry.

Is there anything else we can help you with?

Detergent quality

CR02’s drum capacity is larger than conventional washing machines.

This larger load will require a slight increase in detergent. We recommend the following doses:

Powder

CR02 with a half load: 1 scoop.

CR02 with a full load: 1 and a half scoops.

Liquid

CR02 with a half load: 1 dose.

CR02 with a full load: 1 and a half doses.

Tablets

CR02 with a half load: 2 tablets.

CR02 with a full load: 3 tablets.

Is there anything else we can help you with?

Loading the washing machine

Ensure the machine is plugged into the mains and switched on at the socket. Check that the water supply is on at the mains.

Open the outer and inner doors.

Check the drums are empty before placing the sorted laundry into the washing machine.

Close both doors, making sure that both have ‘clicked’ shut.

It is important not to overload the machine. Maximum loads for each programme are shown in the table section 9 02 of the user guide.

Please note: tests have shown that overloading can reduce the wash performance and may cause damage to your machine.

Is there anything else we can help you with?

Maintenance wash

To prevent odours and build-up of deposits within the washing machine, it is recommended that you run an empty 85?C cotton cycle with a half measure of detergent 2 or 3 times a year.

This cycle can be used in addition to the Self clean cycle.

Is there anything else we can help you with?

Water filter

To access the back of the machine ensure the feet are screwed into the cabinet before using the Rollerjack handle to pull the machine out, see section 4 01 of the user guide for more details.

The water inlet filters should be checked regularly for debris or limescale build-up particularly in a hard water area.

Contact your local water authority to find out your water composition.

Turn off the water supply to the machine.

Unscrew both water inlet hoses by hand.

Using pliers, grip the coloured filters, pull them out and rinse them under cold water.

Please note: some water may remain in the hoses.

Replace the filters, red to the hot fill and blue to the cold fill, and reconnect the water inlet hoses.

Self clean cycle

Approximately every 200 cycles, the machine will display ‘Self clean cycle due’.

You can decide to activate or cancel the Self clean cycle.

Unload the machine as self clean cycle washes at 85?C.

To activate, put half a measure of detergent into the soap tray, then press ‘Start’.

To cancel, press and hold ‘Cancel’.
