••To get the best results, sort clothes into
loads that can be washed with the same
wash cycle.
••Different fabrics need to be washed at
varying temperatures and spin speeds.
••Always sort dark colours from pale
colours and whites. Wash separately as
dye and lint transfer can occur causing
discolouration of white and pale garments.
If possible, do not wash heavily soiled
items with lightly soiled ones.
−−Soil (Heavy, Normal, Light) :
Separate clothes according to amount of
soil.
−−Colour (White, Lights, Darks):
Separate white fabrics from coloured
fabrics.
−−Lint (Lint producers, Collectors):
Wash lint producers and lint collectors
separately.

EN
Adding Cleaning Products
Detergent Dosage
••Detergent should be used according to the
instruction of the detergent manufacturer and
selected according to type, colour, soiling of
the fabric and washing temperature.
••If too much detergent is used, too many suds
can occur and this will result in poor washing
results or cause heavy load to the motor.
••If you wish to use liquid detergent follow
the guidelines provided by the detergent
manufacturer.
••You can pour liquid detergent directly into the
main detergent drawer if you are starting the
cycle immediately.
••Do not use liquid detergent if you are using
Time delay, or if you have selected Pre Wash,
as the liquid may harden.
••If too many suds occur, reduce the detergent
amount.
••Detergent usage may need to be adjusted for
water temperature, water hardness, size and
soil level of the load. For best results, avoid
oversudsing.
••Refer to the label of the clothes, before
choosing the detergent and water temperature.
••When using the washing machine, use
designated detergent for each type of clothing
only:
−−General powdered detergents for all types of
fabric
−−Powdered detergents for delicate fabric
−−Liquid detergents for all types of fabric or
designated detergents only for wool
••For better washing performance and whitening,
use detergent with the general powdered
bleach.
••Detergent is flushed from the dispenser at the
beginning of the cycle.
••Dilute liquid detergent with water and pour into
the drum, start the cycle.
••Using liquid detergent without diluting, or
leaving laundry for a long time after pouring
diluted liquid detergent into the drum might
cause damage, bleaching or discoloration of
cloth.
NOTE
••Do not let the detergent harden. Doing so may
lead to blockages, poor rinse performance or
odour.
••Full load : According to manufacturer’s
recommendation.
••Part load : 3/4 of the normal amount
••Minimum load : 1/2 of full load
Adding Detergent
••Follow the detergent package directions.
Using too little detergent is a common cause of
laundry problems. Use more detergent if you
have hard water, large loads, greasy or oily
soils or lower water temperature.
••Soap flakes or granulated soap powders
should not be used in your washing machine.
When washing woolens, remember to use
detergent suitable for washing woolens.
NOTE
••Too much detergent, bleach or softener may
cause an overflow.
19
EN
Adding Fabric Softener
Adding Liquid Bleach
••Dilute fabric softener with water. Undiluted
fabric softener may result in spots that look like
oil stain.
••Measure and add the recommended amount
of fabric softener into the compartment marked
with this symbol (
).
−−Follow manufacturer’s direction.
−−Fabric softener is automatically dispensed in
the final rinse with indication beep.
−−If you want extra rinse, you must add fabric
softener manually when indication beep rings
in the final rinse. This maximizes the fabric
softener function.
••Check clothing care label for special
instructions and separate the laundry to be
bleached.
••Dilute liquid chlorine bleach.
••Measure the recommended amount of liquid
bleach carefully following instructions on the
bottle.
••Before starting the washing machine, pour the
measured amount of bleach directly into the
bleach dispenser. Avoid splashing or overfilling.
Powdered bleach should be mixed with water
before being poured into the dispenser.
••Do not overfill. The dispenser holds max 35
mL. Never add more than 35 mL. Overfilling
can cause early dispensing of the fabric
softener which could result in stained clothes.
A cup with a pouring spout will help you avoid
spelling.
••The effect of adding fabric softener may vary
according to its viscosity. The sticker fabric
softener makes its effect lower. For a sticky
softener it is recommended that it be diluted
with water, then be manually put during the
time when the washer beeps several times
before the final rinse. This function informing
correct time dispense manually is optionally
applied to some models. Please keep it in
mind that fabric softener has to be diluted with
water before dispensed and poured directly on
clothes.
••Never pour undiluted liquid bleach directly
onto clothes or into the wash basket. This may
cause change of color or damage the laundry.
••Do not pour powdered bleach into the bleach
dispenser.
NOTE
••Do not mix with detergent or bleach.
••Never pour fabric softener directly on clothes. It
may stain them.
••Do not stop the washer during the first spin for
timely dispensing.
••Option washing is not designed to be used with
