Maintenance

The washing drum

• If you live in a hard water area, limescale may build up continuously in places where it cannot be seen
and thus not easily removed. Over time the build up of scale clogs appliances, and if it is not kept in
check these may have to be replaced.
• Although the washing drum is made of Stainless steel, specks of rust can be caused by small metal
articles (paper clips, safety pins) which have been left in the drum.
• The washing drum should be cleaned from time to time.
• If you use descaling agents, dyes or bleaches, make sure they are suitable for washing machine use.
• Descaler may contain chemicals that may damage part of your washing machine.
• Remove any spots with a stainless steel cleaning agent.
• Never use steel wool.
