10. HINTS AND TIPS
10.1 The laundry load
10.3 Detergents and additives
• Divide the laundry in: white, coloured,
synthetics, delicates and wool.
• Obey the washing instructions that are
on the laundry care labels.
• Do not wash together white and coloured items.
• Some coloured items can discolour
with the first wash. We recommend that
you wash them separately for the first
times.
• Button up pillowcases, close zippers,
hooks and poppers. Tie up belts.
• Empty the pockets and unfold the
items.
• Turn inside out multilayered fabrics,
wool and items with painted illustrations.
• Remove hard stains.
• Wash with a special detergent heavy
soil stains.
• Be careful with the curtains. Remove
the hooks or put the curtains in a washing bag or pillowcase.
• Do not wash in the appliance :
– Laundry without hems or with cuts
– Underwired bras.
– Use a washing bag to wash small
items.
• A very small load can cause balance
problems with the spin phase. If this
occurs, adjust manually the items in the
tub and start the spin phase again.
• Only use detergents and additives specially made for washing machines.
• Do not mix different types of detergents.
• To help the environment, do not use
more than the correct quantity of detergent.
• Obey the instructions that you find on
the on packaging of these products.
• Use the correct products for the type
and colour of the fabric, the programme
temperature and the level of soil.
• If your appliance has not the detergent
dispenser with the flap device, add the
liquid detergents with a dosing ball.
• If you use liquid detergents, do not set
a prewash or a delay start.
10.2 Stubborn stains
For some stains, water and detergent is
not sufficient.
We recommend that you remove these
stains before you put the items in the appliance.
Special stain removers are available. Use
the special stain remover that is applicable to the type of stain and fabric.
10.4 Ecological hints
• Set a programme without the prewash
phase to wash laundry with normal soil.
• Always start a washing programme with
the maximum load of laundry.
• If necessary, use a stain remover when
you set a programme with a low temperature.
• To use the correct quantity of the detergent, check the water hardness of your
domestic system
10.5 Water hardness
If the water hardness in your area is high
or moderate, we recommend that you use
a water softener for washing machines. In
areas where the water hardness is soft it
is not necessary to use a water softener.
To know the water hardness in your area,
contact your local water authority.
