11.5 Fluff in the fabrics
During the washing and/or drying phase,
some types of fabric, (sponge, wool,
sweatshirt) could release fluff.
The released fluff could stick to the fabrics

washed and dried light coloured fabrics
(new sponge, wool, sweatshirt ) and the
contrary.
• To dry this type of fabrics at open air
when they are washed the first time.
• To clean the drain filter.

hooks and poppers. Tie up belts.
• Empty the pockets and unfold the
items.
• Turn inside out multilayered fabrics,
wool and items with painted illustrations.

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.
12.2 Stubborn stains
For some stains, water and detergent is
not sufficient.
We recommend that you remove these
