German term or phrase: abgerakelt
Wenn die Maschine abgerakelt stehen bleiben soll, muss die 1 gedrückt werden; soll die Maschine geflutet stehen bleiben, muss die 0 gedrückt werden.

I'm thinking of something like "in a cleaned condition".

wiped
Explanation:
Rakel: Im Tiefdruck bestehen die Rakel aus metallischen Messern, die überflüssige Farbe vom eingefärbten Tiefdruckzylinder abrakeln. (see website reference)
In your context, there seem to be two settings. Setting 1 is if the machine is to be wiped and cleaned free of ink and left at rest for a while, setting 2 is if the ink is to be left on the printing plate ("geflutet") so that printing can be resumed within a few minutes.
