Important information Preparing for washing and drying/Protecting the laundry and the machine
– Empty any pockets.
– Check for metal items (paper clips, etc.).
– Trousers, knitwear and knitted textiles, e.g. jersey garments, T-shirts or sweatshirts should
be turned inside out.
– Ensure that underwired bras are machine washable.
– Wash delicates in a net/bag (tights, curtains, underwired bras).
– Fasten zips, do up any buttons.
– Brush sand out of pockets and collars.
– Remove curtain hooks or place curtains in a net/bag.
– Only use tumble-dry textiles if you select drying.
– Remove as much water as possible before tumble-drying. The recommended spin speed
for cottons is more than 1000 rpm; for easy-care use more than 800 rpm.
– In order to ensure uniform drying, sort the items according to fabric type and degree
of drying required.
– Items which require ironing do not have to be ironed immediately after being tumble-dried.
It is a good idea to fold or roll them together for a while, so that any remaining moisture
is evenly distributed.
– To achieve good drying results, dry quilt covers, terry towels or other large textile items
individually. Do not dry more than 4 terry towels (or 3 kg) at a time.
Before using for the first time
Do not put any laundry in the washer dryer. Turn on the tap, pour ½ a measuring cup
of detergent into dispenser II. Set the . Fluff Clean 40 °C programme and select
Start/Reload.
At the end of the programme, set the programme selector to ÂOff.
After a long period of not using or moving the machine
The syphon may be empty. If you select a single drying programme to prevent the hot
and humid steam from coming out of the empty syphon, the tap water will automatically
flow into the machine to fill the syphon at the beginning of the programme.
Laundry with different levels of soiling
Wash new items separately.
Light
Do not prewash.
If required, pre-treat stains. Select the Cottons Eco programme.
Heavy
Load less laundry.
If required, pre-treat stains. Select the Cottons Eco programme
or 7 Cottons+Prewash programme.
Soaking
Load laundry of the same colour.
Pour soaking agent/detergent into dispenser II according to the manufacturer's instructions.
Set the L Cottons 30 °C programme and select Start/Reload.
After approx. 10 minutes, select Start/Reload. After the required soaking time, reselect Start/
Reload if the programme is to be continued, or change the programme.
Starching
Laundry must not be treated with fabric softener.
Starching is possible with all washing programmes using liquid starch. Pour the starch into
the fabric softener compartment according to the manufacturer's instructions (clean it first if
necessary).
Dyeing/bleaching
Dye should only be used in normal quantities. Salt may damage stainless steel. Always follow
the dye manufacturer's instructions. Do not bleach laundry in the washing machine.
