U
se of Water, Detergent, Bleach and Softener
Using Fabric Softener
Dilute fabric softener with water.
Undiluted fabric softener may result in spots that look like oil stains.
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.
Softener dispenser (
)
Do not overfill. The dispenser holds a maximum of 35ml.
Never add more than 35ml.
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 spilling.
The effect of adding fabric softener may vary according to its viscosity. The stickier fabric softener makes its
effect the lower. For a sticky fabric 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 to 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 never poured directly on clothes.
Attention
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 fabric softener dispenser.
Scrud(Waxy Build up)
Scrud is the name given to the waxy build-up that can occur within any washer when the fabric softener
comes into contact with detergent. This build-up is not brought about by a fault in the machine.
If scrud is allowed to build-up in the machine it can result in stains on your clothes or an unpleasant
smell in your washer.
If you wish to use fabric softener we recommend
Using fabric softener sparingly.
When filling the dispenser, do not splash or overfill.
Clean dispenser as soon as the cycle is finished.
Clean your machine regularly.
Cold water washing increases the chance of this build-up occurring. We recommend a regular warm or hot
wash e.g. every 5th wash should be at least a warm one.
Fabric softener of thinner consistency is less likely to leave residue on the dispenser and contribute to a
build-up.
