Detergents and Additives
Only use detergents and additives designed for

of powder detergents. Liquid detergents must not
be used when a prewash has been selected. For
cycles without prewash, they must be added via
means of a dosing ball. Detergent tablets or doses
must be placed in the detergent compartment of
your appliance's dispenser box.
