12. CARE AND CLEANING

WARNING!
Refer to Safety chapters.
12.1 External cleaning
Clean the appliance with soap and warm
water only. Fully dry all the surfaces.
CAUTION!
Do not use alcohol, solvents
or chemical products.
12.2 Descaling
If the water hardness in your area is high
or moderate, we recommend that you
use a water descaling product for
washing machines.
Regularly examine the drum to prevent
limescale and rust particles.
• 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".
11.5 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.
To remove rust particles use only special
products for washing machines. Do this
separately from the laundry wash.
Always obey the instructions
that you find on the
packaging of the product.
12.3 Maintenance wash
With the low temperature programmes it
is possible that some detergent stays in
the drum. Perform a maintenance wash
regularly. To do this:
• Remove all laundry from the drum.
• Select the cotton programme with the
highest temperature with a small
quantity of detergent.
