reduce creases and odours and make your laundry softer.

lation 1061/2010, these programmes are respectively the «Standard 60°C cotton pro‐
gramme» and the «Standard 40°C cotton programme». They are the most efficient pro‐
grammes in terms of combined energy and water consumption for washing normally soiled

declared for the selected programme.

drum doesn't rotate or doesn't rotate properly, but this is normal for this programme.
3) Set the spin speed. Make sure it is suitable for the type of fabric being washed. If you set
the No Spin option then only the drain phase is available.
4) If you set a Steam programme with dried laundry, at the end of the cycle the laundry
could be humid. It is better to expose the items to the fresh air for about 10 minutes to let
the humidity dry. When the programme is completed, quickly remove the laundry from the
drum. After a steam cycle, items may be ironed however with less effort.
