HINTS AND TIPS
THE LAUNDRY LOAD
DETERGENTS AND ADDITIVES
• Divide the laundry in: white, coloured,
synthetics, delicates and wool.
• Obey the washing instructions that are
on the laundry care labels.
• Do not wash together white and coloured items.
• 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 inside out multilayered fabrics,
wool and items with painted illustrations.
• Remove hard stains.
• Wash with a special detergent heavy
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.
• Only use detergents and additives specially made for washing machines.
• 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 you use liquid detergents, do not set
the prewash phase.
• If your appliance has not the detergent
dispenser with the flap device, add the
liquid detergents with a dosing ball.
STUBBORN STAINS
For some stains, water and detergent is
not sufficient.
We recommend that you remove 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.
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.
Obey the instructions that you find on the
packaging of the products.
Equivalent scales measure the water hardness:
• German degrees (°dH).
• French degrees (°TH).
• mmol/l (millimol for each litre - international unit for the hardness of water).
• Clarke degrees.

CARE AND CLEANING
WARNING!
Disconnect the appliance from the mains
supply before you clean it.
DESCALING
The water we use contains limescale. If it
becomes necessary, use a water softener
to remove limescales.
Use a special product made for washing
machines. Obey the instructions that you
find on the packaging of the manufacturer.
Do this separately from the laundry wash.
EXTERNAL CLEANING
CAUTION!
Do not use alcohol, solvents or
chemical products.
MAINTENANCE WASH
With the low temperature programmes it
is possible that some detergent stays in
the drum. Make regularly a maintenance
wash. To do this:
• Empty the laundry from the drum.
• Set the hottest cotton wash programme
• Use a correct quantity of powder detergent with biological properties.
After each wash, keep the door open for a
while to prevent mould and to let unpleasant smells go out.

drain pipe at a height of not less than
60 cm and not more than 100 cm. The
end of the drain hose must always be
ventilated , i.e. the inner diameter of
the drainpipe must be larger than the
external diameter of the drain hose.
Without the plastic hose guide.
• To a sink spigot.
Refer to the illustration. Put the drain
hose in the spigot and tighten it with a
clip. Make sure that the drain hose
