are before washing
Preparations for the first wash
Select a cycle (COTTON 60°C, add a half load of detergent) allow the unit to wash
without clothing. This will remove residues and water from the drum that may have been left
during manufacturing.
Caring before washing
1. Care Labels
Look for a care label on your clothes. This will tell you about the fabric content of your garment and
how it should be washed.
2. Sorting
To get the best results, Sort clothes into loads that can be washed with the same wash cycle.
Water temperature and spin speed and different fabrics need to be washed in different ways.
Always sort dark colors from pale colors and whites. Wash separately as dye and lint transfer can
occur causing discoloration of white etc. If possible, do not wash heavily soiled items with lightly
soiled one.
Soil (Heavy, Normal, Light)
Separate clothes according to amount of soil.
Color (White, Lights, Darks)
Separate white fabrics from colored fabrics.
Lint (Lint producers, Collectors)
Wash lint producers and lint collectors
3. Caring before loading
Combine large and small items in a load. Load large items first. Large items should not be more than half
the total wash load.
Do not wash single items. This may cause an out-of-balance load. Add at least two similar items.
• Check all pockets to make sure that they
are empty. Items such as nails, hair clip,
matches, pens, coins and keys can damage
both your washer and your clothes.
• Pre treat dirt and stains by brushing a little
detergent dissolved in water onto stains like
collars and cuffs to help shift dirt.
• Close zippers, hooks and strings to make sure
that these items don’t snag on other clothes.
• Check the folds of the flexible grey door gasket
and remove any small articles,if any.
• Check inside of the drum and remove any left
items in it from the previous wash.
• Remove any clothing or items on the flexible
gasket to prevent clothing and the gasket from
being damaged.
