HINTS AND TIPS
THE LAUNDRY LOAD
• 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.
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
