Care and Cleaning
The water we use normally contains lime. It is a good idea to
periodically use a water softening powder in the appliance.
Do this separately from any laundry washing, and according
to the softening powder manufacturer's instructions. This will
help to prevent the formation of lime deposits.
With the use of low temperature washes it is possible to get
a build up of residues inside the drum.
We recommend that a maintenance wash be performed on
the appliance off by pressing button 7. In case of water
high level and temperature, you must ﬁ rst empty out the
water and then open the door (please read «At the end of
the programme»). If the appliance is spinning, once you set
it to pause, the door can be opened after some minutes.
After closing the door, it is necessary to select the pro-
gramme again and to press the button 8.
