Advice and tips before washing
Here are some tips that may help you before
washing.
Sorting your laundry
Sort items according to:
• how soiled they are
• colour
• material
Clothing
1. Do up zips and close Velcro straps so that they
don’t harm fabrics.
2. New coloured items may contain excess dye
and should therefore be washed separately
the first few times.
3. Turn delicate items inside out. This reduces
the risk of burling and fading.
4. Empty pockets and wash them inside out if
possible.
Laundry labels
Look at the item's laundry label. The table below
shows suitable wash programs for different
materials and wash loads. Using modern washing
machines and detergents, for example compact
detergents, you can usually wash at lower
temperatures. It is a good idea to use trial and
error to find out what produces the best results.
Laundry label symbols
Examples of washing instructions and recommended programs. Always follow the washing instructions
for each garment.

Coloured cotton
Unbleached linen
Coloured cotton items with the washing instruction
60 °C should be washed at 60 °C for the first time
in order to remove any excess dye. If you do not
do so, there is a risk that the colour will run. Use
detergent without bleach in order to preserve the
colour of the fabric.
Unbleached linen fabrics should be washed at 60
°C, using detergent containing no bleach or optical
whiteners. Heavily-soiled linen can occasionally
be washed at higher temperatures, but not too
often because the heat can destroy the linen’s
shine and strength.
Advice and tips before washing
Wool
Save time and energy
These fabrics are labelled either machine wash
or hand wash. The Wool program is at least as
gentle as washing by hand.
Use the Colour/White program to save time and
energy. This program has a shorter main wash
than Normal, but is often sufficient for lightly soiled
washing.
Wool is especially sensitive to processes such as
washing.
If you do not wish to spin dry, you can squeeze
out the water using terry towels. In this case select
No spin.
To find out how to choose this setting, see the
"Washing" chapter. However, most garments can
withstand a short spin. Choose a short spin by
selecting a spin speed of 800 rpm or less.
Rayon fibres and synthetic fibres
Materials made of rayon fibres, such as viscose,
and some synthetic fibres are very delicate and
require much space so as not to crease. Only half
fill the drum when washing and choose a spin
speed of 800 rpm or lower.
NOTE!
Viscose and acetates are fragile when wet.
Stain removal
The automatic stain program can be used for the
following types of stains: Chocolate, Blood, Red
wine, Egg, Grass, Diary products, Tea/Coffee,
Fat stains grease/oil and Blueberry. The program
is suitable for cotton, cotton/synthetics and
synthetics.
NOTE!
For stain removal it is always important to treat
the stain as soon as possible. Leaving a stain
and allowing it to dry makes it more difficult to
remove. It is also important to carefully scrape
off any of the stain lying on the surface. Do not
load the machine with more than 2,5 kg of
laundry.
High water level
If you want more water for the main wash and
rinses, you can use the High water level option.
This is automatically selected in the Wool/Hand
program.
Economy and efficiency
You can save energy by not using higher
temperature programs than necessary.
• Select Quick if you just need to freshen up
shirts or exercise clothes, for example. This
will save both water and energy.
• If you select a fast spin speed, this reduces
energy consumption when drying in a tumble
dryer or drying cabinet.
• Always wash with a full load when using the
Heavy, Colour/White and Normal programs.
• Avoid pre-washing. Modern machines and
detergents clean effectively without
pre-washing. Pre-washing is only necessary
for heavily soiled washing.
Detergents
Eco-labelled detergents are less harmful to the
environment.
Detergent overdosing does not give better
washing results; it merely causes a greater impact
on the environment; can also hinder the wash
performance.
Try to use less detergent, and increase only if you
are not satisfied with the results.
Reducing allergic reactions
The washing machine has a Super Rinse option.
Use this for people with sensitive skin, such as
those with allergies and small children.

Advice and tips before washing
Dyeing fabrics
If you want to dye fabrics in the machine, select
the Colour/White program with the Super Rinse
option. Select temperature according to the dye
manufacturer’s recommendations.
Choose a low spin speed if the fabric to be dyed
is a blended material such as
polyester/cotton.
NOTE!
Add the dye directly to the washing drum – not
to the detergent compartment. After dyeing, you
should run the machine empty using the same
program. Use the normal amount of detergent.
NOTE!
Due to environmental concerns, we discourage
the use of strong chemicals.
When using agents for bleaching or stain
removal, there is a risk of rust (corrosion) and
discolouration of the machine.

Fabric softener
Pour the fabric softener into the compartment with
the
symbol. Follow the recommendations on
the fabric softener packaging.
NOTE!
Do not fill above the compartment’s maximum
fill level. Otherwise fabric softener will run in too
early, and will impair washing results.
4
Add detergent and fabric
softener, as required
The detergent packaging will have
recommendations for how much detergent you
should use. The machine holds 7 kg of washing.
If you only have a small amount of laundry in the
machine, you can reduce the amount of detergent
used.
Powder detergent
Pour the powder into the compartment for the
main wash, and pre-wash as well if desired.
Liquid detergent
When using liquid detergent, follow the detergent
manufacturer’s recommendations. We
recommend always using a wash ball with very
thick liquid detergent.
Wash ball or net
If you use a wash ball or net, place it directly in
the drum and select a program without pre-wash.

Care and cleaning
Cleaning the trap and the drainage
pump
The washing machine has a trap where smaller
objects such as coins and hairpins can collect.
To clean the trap and the drainage pump, do as
follows:
1. Make sure the machine is empty of water and
switched off at the mains.
Cleaning the detergent
compartment
NOTE!
Do not wash the detergent compartment or the
insert in a dishwasher!
Open the detergent compartment and remove the
insert. Rinse the insert and scrub it clean with a
washing-up brush. Wipe up any detergent left
inside the detergent compartment. Replace the
insert in the detergent compartment.
2. Open the door.
Insert
3. Unhook the drainage hose from the connector
inside the door and drain the water into a
suitable container, such as a shallow bowl.
Detergent
compartment
Cleaning the outside of the machine
Clean the outside of the machine and the program
panel with a mild cleaner. Do not use any
solvents, as these can damage the machine.
NOTE!
4. Turn the cover anti-clockwise to open the
pump. Remove the cover.
Do not hose down the machine with water!
Cleaning the inside of the machine
to avoid unpleasant smells
5. Remove any items and so forth from the pump
housing and the cover. Also check that the
pump blades right at the back rotate.
Modern detergents often allow clothes to be
washed at low temperatures. This means that
small deposits can build up in the machine. These,
in turn, may lead to unpleasant smells developing;
especially if constantly using cold wash.
To avoid this, we recommend running a 95 °C
wash program once a month. When you do this,
use a small quantity of detergent. It is not
necessary to put any washing in the machine.
6. Screw on the cover, replace the drainage hose
on the hatch pin and close the hatch.
21
Care and cleaning
Rinse holes under the agitator
If you have hard water
If you suspect that objects such as nails or paper
clips may have fallen into the wash drum, you
should check the space under the agitator. Such
objects can rust and cause spots on clothing.
Nails and other sharp objects can cause holes in
fabrics.
If you live in an area with hard water (high
limescale content), a greyish-white coating may
form on the wash drum. To remove this coating,
pour approximately 20 gram of citric acid into the
wash drum and run any 95 °C program. Repeat
if necessary.
Do as follows:
1. Insert a screwdriver or the like into the hole on
the agitator as illustrated and carefully pry to
the left.
2. Use your other hand to grasp the agitator and
pull it towards you.
3. Lift the agitator.
4. Remove any objects.
5. Place the agitator in the mounting hole with the
F-mark towards you. Ensure that all the agitator
fasteners are in their holes in the drum. Push
it in until it catches.
22

Imbalance
The machine stops the spin cycle if there is too
much imbalance. The washing machine restarts
the spin cycle and hopefully the washing is better
distributed in the drum. This procedure can be
repeated up to 10 times. If the machine still fails
to find a good balance, the program jumps to the
next step.
The error message requires no action.
