Warning and Safety instructions When washing such heavily soiled items, ensure that you use sufficient detergent and select a high temperature. If in doubt, wash the items several times.

Warning and Safety instructions In many programmes, the heating phase is followed by a cooling down phase to ensure that the items are not too hot to handle when you remove them (this also avoids the danger of the laundry self-igniting).
Warning and Safety instructions The dryer must not be used without the fluff filters in place or if the fluff filters are damaged in any way. The fluff filters must be cleaned regularly.
