lation 1061/2010, these programmes are respectively the «Standard 60°C cotton pro‐
gramme» and the «Standard 40°C cotton programme». They are the most efficient pro‐
grammes in terms of combined energy and water consumption for washing normally soiled
cotton laundry.
The water temperature of the washing phase may differ from the temperature
declared for the selected programme.
2) During this cycle the drum rotates slowly to ensure a gentle wash. It can seem that the
drum doesn't rotate or doesn't rotate properly, but this is normal for this programme.
3) Set the spin speed. Make sure it is suitable for the type of fabric being washed. If you set
the No Spin option then only the drain phase is available.
4) Do not use any detergent for prewash phase to rinse only with water.

6. CONSUMPTION VALUES
The data in this table are approximate. Different variables can affect the
data: the quantity and type of laundry, the water and ambient tempera‐
ture.
At the start of the programme, the display shows the programme dura‐
tion for the maximum load capacity.
During the washing phase the programme duration is automatically cal‐
culated and can be greatly reduced if the laundry load is lower than the
maximum load capacity (e.g. Cotton 60°C, maximum load capacity 7 kg,
the programme duration exceeds 2 hours; actual load 1 kg, the pro‐
gramme duration will be less than 1 hour).
When the appliance is calculating the real programme duration a dot
flashes in the display.

•
•
•
•
Divide the laundry in: white, coloured,
synthetics, delicates and wool.
Obey the washing instructions that
are on the laundry care labels.
Do not wash white and coloured items
together.
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 multilayered fabrics, wool and
items with painted illustrations inside
out.
Remove hard stains.
Wash heavy soil stains with a special

•
small and/or delicate items (e.g.
underwired bras, belts, tights, etc. ).
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.
•
•
11.2 Stubborn stains
For some stains, water and detergent is
not sufficient.
We recommend that you pre-treat 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.
11.3 Detergents and additives
•
•
•
•
Only use detergents and additives
specially made for washing machines:
– powder detergents for all types of
fabric,
– powder detergents for delicate
fabrics (40 °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.
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 does not have the
detergent dispenser with the flap
device, add the liquid detergents with
a dosing ball (supplied by the
detergent's manufacturer).
11.4 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
allowed.
If necessary, use a stain remover
when you set a programme with a low
temperature.
To use the correct quantity of
detergent, check the water hardness
of your domestic system. Refer to
"Water hardness".
11.5 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.
Use the correct quantity of the water
softener. Obey the instructions that you
find on the packaging of the product.
12. CARE AND CLEANING

12.2 Descaling
If the water hardness in your area is high
or moderate, we recommend that you
use a water descaling product for
washing machines.

limescale and rust particles.
To remove rust particles use only special
products for washing machines. Do this
separately from the laundry wash.
