Detergents and additives

Good washing results also depend on the
choice of detergent and use of the correct
quantities to avoid waste and protect the
environment. Although biodegradable,
detergents contain substances which, in large
quantities, can upset the delicate balance of
nature.
The choice of detergent will depend on the type
of fabric (delicates, woollens, cottons, etc.), the
colour, washing temperature and degree of
soiling.
All commonly available washing machine
detergents may be used in this appliance:
– powder detergents for all types of fabric,
– powder detergents for delicate fabrics (60°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.
The detergent and any additives must be placed
in the appropriate compartments of the
dispenser drawer before starting the wash
programme.
If using concentrated powder or liquid
detergents, a programme without prewash must
be selected.
The washing machine incorporates a
recirculation system which allows an optimal use
of the concentrated detergent.
Pour liquid detergent into the dispenser drawer
compartment marked
the programme.
Any fabric softener or starching additives must
be poured into the compartment marked
before starting the wash programme.
The bleaching agent (chlorine) can be used only
for white or fast coloured cotton and linen items.
Pour it into the compartment marked
just before starting
.
Follow the product manufacturer's
recommendations on quantities to use and do
not exceed the «MAX» mark in the detergent
dispenser drawer.
Quantity of detergent to be used
The type and quantity of detergent will depend
on the type of fabric, load size, degree of soiling
and hardness of the water used.
Water hardness is classified in so-called
"degrees" of hardness. Information on hardness
of the water in your area can be obtained from
the relevant water supply company, or from your
local authority.
Follow the product manufacturers' instructions
on quantities to use.
Use less detergent if:
– you are washing a small load
– the laundry is lightly soiled
– large amounts of foam form during washing.

Drying

All laundry to be dried must be thoroughly
spun. The higher the spin speed, the lower
the power consumption and the shorter the
drying time.
n
Scrupulously follow the instructions on each
garment label, making sure that it is suitable
for tumble-drying.
n
Do not tumble dry the following:
– wool, silk, synthetic curtains;
– articles with a plasticised finish, nylon
tights or stockings, sleeping bags, quilts,
articles made of foam rubber or containing
materials similar to foam rubber, fabrics
with metal inserts;
– fabrics which tend to fray.
Important: during the drying cycle, the water
tap must be left open and the drain hose must
be correctly positioned.
