HINTS AND TIPS

THE LAUNDRY LOAD
Divide the laundry in: white, coloured,
synthetics, delicates and wool.
Obey the washing instructions that are on the
laundry care labels.
Do not wash white and coloured items together.
Some coloured items can discolour with the first
wash. We recommend that you wash them
separately for the first times.
Button up pillowcases, close zippers, hooks and
poppers. Tie up belts.
Empty the pockets and unfold the items.
Turn multilayered fabrics, wool and items with
painted illustrations inside out.
Remove hard stains.
Wash heavy soil stains with a special detergent.
Be careful with the curtains. Remove the hooks
or put the curtains in a washing bag or
pillowcase.
Do not wash laundry without hems or with cuts.
Use a washing bag to wash small and/or
delicate items (e.g. underwired bras, belts,
tights, etc. ).
A very small load can cause balance problems
with the spin phase. If this occurs, adjust
manually the items in the tub and start the spin
phase again.
STUBBORN STAINS
For some stains, water and detergent is not
sufficient.
We recommend that you pre-treat these stains
before you put the items in the appliance.
Special stain removers are available. Use the
special stain remover that is applicable to the type
of stain and fabric.
DETERGENTS AND ADDITIVES
Only use detergents and additives specially
made for washing machines:

CARE AND CLEANING

WARNING! Refer to Safety chapters.
EXTERNAL CLEANING
Clean the appliance with soap and warm water
only. Fully dry all the surfaces.
– powder detergents for all types of fabric,
– powder detergents for delicate fabrics (40
°C max) and woollens,
– liquid detergents, preferably for low
temperature wash programmes (60 °C max)
for all types of fabric, or special for woollens
only.
Do not mix different types of detergents.
To help the environment, do not use more than
the correct quantity of detergent.
Obey the instructions that you find on the on
packaging of these products.
Use the correct products for the type and colour
of the fabric, the programme temperature and
the level of soil.
If your appliance does not have the detergent
dispenser with the flap device, add the liquid
detergents with a dosing ball (supplied by the
detergent's manufacturer).
ECOLOGICAL HINTS
Always start a washing programme with the
maximum load of laundry allowed.
If necessary, use a stain remover when you set a
programme with a low temperature.
To use the correct quantity of detergent, check
the water hardness of your domestic system.
Refer to "Water hardness".
WATER HARDNESS
If the water hardness in your area is high or
moderate, we recommend that you use a water
softener for washing machines. In areas where the
water hardness is soft it is not necessary to use a
water softener.
To know the water hardness in your area, contact
your local water authority.
Use the correct quantity of the water softener.
Obey the instructions that you find on the
packaging of the product.
CAUTION! Do not use alcohol,
solvents or chemical products.
DESCALING
If the water hardness in your area is high or
moderate, we recommend that you use a water
descaling product for washing machines.
