Washing hints
Sorting the laundry
Follow the wash code symbols on each garment
label and the manufacturer’s washing
instructions.
Sort the laundry as follows:
whites, coloureds, synthetics, delicates, woollens.
Temperatures
95°
for normally soiled white cottons and
linen (e.g. tea cloths, towels,
tablecloths, sheets...)
60°
for normally soiled, colour fast
garments (e.g. shirts, night dresses,
pyjamas....) in linen, cotton or
synthetic fibres and for lightly soiled
white cotton (e.g. underwear).
(cold)
30°-40°
for delicate items (e.g. net curtains),
mixed laundry including synthetic
fibres and woollens bearing the label
«pure new wool, machine washable,
non-shrink»
Before loading the laundry
Never wash whites and coloureds together.
Whites may lose their “whiteness” in the wash.
New coloured items may run in the first wash;
they should therefore be washed separately the
first time.
Make sure that no metal objects are left in the
laundry (e.g. hair clips, safety pins, pins).
Button up pillowcases, close zip fasteners, hooks
and poppers. Tie any belts or long tapes.
Remove persistent stains before washing. Rub
particularly soiled areas with a special detergent
or detergent paste.
Treat curtains with special care. Remove hooks
or tie them up in a bag or net.
Maximum loads
Recommended loads are indicated in the
programme charts.
General rules:
cotton, linen: drum full but not too tightly packed
synthetics: drum no more than half full
10
delicate fabrics and woollens: drum no more
than one third full
Washing a maximum load makes the most
efficient use of water and energy.
For heavily soiled laundry, reduce the load size.
Laundry weights
The following weights are indicative:
bathrobe
napkin
quilt cover

Removing stains
Stubborn stains may not be removed by just
water and detergent. It is therefore advisable to
treat them prior to washing.
Blood: treat fresh stains with cold water. For
dried stains, soak overnight in water with a
special detergent then rub in the soap and water.
Oil based paint: moisten with benzine stain
remover, lay the garment on a soft cloth and dab
the stain; treat several times.
Dried grease stains: moisten with turpentine,
lay the garment on a soft surface and dab the
stain with the fingertips and a cotton cloth.
Rust: oxalic acid dissolved in hot water or a rust
removing product used cold. Be careful with rust
stains which are not recent since the cellulose
structure will already have been damaged and
the fabric tends to hole.
Mould stains: treat with bleach, rinse well
(whites and fast coloureds only).
Grass: soap lightly and treat with bleach (whites
and fast coloureds only).
Ball point pen and glue: moisten with acetone
(*), lay the garment on a soft cloth and dab the
stain.
Red wine: soak in water and detergent, rinse
and treat with acetic or citric acid, then rinse.
Treat any residual marks with bleach.
Ink: depending on the type of ink, moisten the
fabric first with acetone (*), then with acetic acid;
treat any residual marks on white fabrics with
bleach and then rinse thoroughly.
Tar stains: first treat with stain remover,
methylated spirits or benzine, then rub with
detergent paste.
(*) do not use acetone on artificial silk
Detergents and additives
Good washing results also depend on the choice
of detergent and use of the correct quantities to
avoid waste and protect the environment.
Although biodegradable, detergents contain
substances which, in large quantities, can upset
the delicate balance of nature.
The choice of detergent will depend on the type
of fabric (delicates, woollens, cottons, etc.), the
colour, washing temperature and degree of
soiling.
Quantity of detergent to be used
The type and quantity of detergent will depend on
the type of fabric, load size, degree of soiling and
hardness of the water used.
Water hardness is classified in so-called
“degrees” of hardness. Information on hardness
of the water in your area can be obtained from
the relevant water supply company, or from your
local authority.
Follow the product manufacturers’ instructions on
quantities to use.
Use less detergent if:
– you are washing a small load
– the laundry is lightly soiled
– large amounts of foam form during washing.

All commonly available washing machine
detergents may be used in this appliance:
– powder detergents for all types of fabric,
– powder detergents for delicate fabrics (60°C
max) and woollens,
– liquid detergents, preferably for low
temperature wash programmes (60°C max) for
all types of fabric, or special for woollens only.
The detergent and any additives must be placed
in the appropriate compartments of the dispenser
drawer before starting the wash programme.
If using concentrated powder or liquid detergents,
a programme without prewash must be selected.
Pour liquid detergent into the dispenser drawer
compartment marked
just before starting the
programme.
Any fabric softener or starching additives must be
poured into the compartment marked
before
starting the wash programme.
Follow the product manufacturer’s
recommendations on quantities to use.

If the water is not discharged (drain pump is
blocked, filter or drain hose are clogged),
proceed as follows to empty out the machine:
■ pull out the plug from the power socket;
■ close the water tap;
■ if necessary, wait until the water has cooled
down;
■ place a bowl on the floor;
■ put the drain hose end into the bowl and let
the water come out.
Should it not be possible to have access to the
drain hose because, for example, the appliance
is built in the kitchen furniture, slightly loosen the
drain filter after placing a bowl on the floor, to let
the water come out slowly.
At the end screw the filter again.
If the machine is exposed to temperatures below
0°C, certain precautions should be taken.
■ Turn off the water tap.
■ Unscrew the inlet hose.
■ Unhook the drain hose from the rear support
and position the end of this hose and that of
the inlet hose in a bowl. Run the draining
programme until the selector dial is in the
“Stop” position.
■ Switch the machine off.
■ Screw the inlet hose and reposition the drain
hose.
■ When you intend to start the machine up
again, make sure that the room temperature
is above 0°C.
