During the washing and/or drying phase,
some types of fabric, (sponge, wool,

14. HINTS AND TIPS
WARNING!
Refer to Safety chapters.
14.1 The laundry load
•
•
•
•
•
Divide the laundry into: white,
coloured, synthetics, delicates and
wool.
Follow the washing instructions on the
laundry care labels.
Do not wash white and coloured items
together.
Some coloured items can discolour
with the first wash. We recommend
that you wash them separately for the
first couple of times.
Button up pillowcases, close zippers,
hooks and poppers. Tie up belts.
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
Turn multilayered fabrics, wool and
items with printed illustrations inside
out.
Pre-treat tough stains.
Wash heavy soil stains with a special
detergent.
Be careful with curtains. Remove the
hooks and put the curtains in a
washing bag or pillowcase.
Do not wash laundry without hems or
with cuts.
Use a washing bag to wash small
and/or delicate items (e.g. underwired
bras, belts, tights, etc. ).
A very small load can cause balance
problems with the spin phase leading
to excessive vibration. If this occurs:
a. interrupt the programme and
open the door (refer to "Daily
Use" chapter);
32
www.electrolux.com
•
•
b. manually redistribute the load so
that the items are spaced evenly
around the tub;
c. press the Start/Pause button.
The spin phase continues.
Avoid washing garments full of long
animal hair or poor quality garments
releasing lots of fluff that could block
the drain circuit and therefore
requiring the Service assistance.
Empty pockets and unfold the items.
•
•
•
•
For some stains, water and detergent is
not sufficient.
We recommend that you pre-treat 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.
14.3 Detergents and other
treatments
•
•
•
Only use detergents and other
treatments specially made for
washing machines:
– powder detergents for all types of
fabric, excluding delicate. Prefer
powder detergents containing
bleach for whites and laundry
sanitization
– liquid detergents, preferably for
low temperature wash
programmes (60 °C max) for all
types of fabric, or special ones for
woollens only.
Do not mix different types of
detergents.
To help the environment, do not use
more than the recommended quantity
of detergent.
the indicated maximum level (
).
Use the recommended detergents for
the type and colour of the fabric, the

Set a programme without the prewash
phase to wash laundry with normal
soil.
Always start a washing programme
with the maximum load of laundry
allowed.
If you pre-treat the stains or use a
stain remover, set a programme with
a low temperature.
To use the correct quantity of
detergent, check the water hardness
of your domestic system. Refer to
"Water hardness".
14.5 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 find out the water hardness in your
area, contact your local water authority.
Use the correct quantity of water
softener. Follow the instructions that you
find on the packaging of the product.

15. CARE AND CLEANING
WARNING!
Refer to Safety chapters.
15.1 External cleaning
Clean the appliance with mild soap and
warm water only. Fully dry all the
surfaces.
CAUTION!
Do not use alcohol, solvents
or chemical products.
CAUTION!
Do not clean the metal
surfaces with chlorine-based
detergent.
15.2 Descaling
If the water hardness in your
area is high or moderate, we
recommend that you use a
water descaling product for
washing machines.
Regularly examine the drum to check for
limescale.
Regular detergents already contain water
softening agents, but we recommend to
run a cycle with an empty drum and a
descaling product occasionally.
Always follow the
instructions that you find on
the packaging of the
product.
34
www.electrolux.com
15.3 Maintenance wash
The repeated and prolonged use of low
temperature programmes can cause
detergent deposits, fluff residues,
bacterial growth inside the drum and the
tub. This could generate bad odours and
mildew. To eliminate these deposits and
clean the inner part of the appliance, run
a maintenance wash regularly (at least
once a month).
Refer to Cleaning the drum
chapter.
15.4 Door seal with double lip
trap
This appliance is designed with a self
cleaning draining system, allowing light
fluff fibers that fall off the clothes to be
drained out with the water, in such a way
that there is no need by the customer to
access this area for regular maintenance
and cleaning.
Clean the drum with special products for
stainless steel.
Always follow the
instructions that you find on
the packaging of the
product.
Do not clean the drum with
acidic descaling products,
scouring products containing
chlorine or iron or steel wool.
For a thorough clean:
1. Remove all laundry from the drum.
2. Run the Machine Clean programme.
For more details, refer to washing
programme table.
3. Add a small quantity of powder
detergent into the empty drum, in
order to rinse out any left residues.
15.6 Cleaning the detergent
dispenser
To prevent possible deposits of dried
detergent or clotted fabric softener
and/or formation of mould in the
detergent dispenser drawer, once in a
while carry out the following cleaning
procedure:
1. Open the drawer. Press the catch
downwards as indicated in the
picture and pull it out.
1
Regularly examine the seal and remove
all objects from the inner part. Coins,
buttons, other small items forgotten in
the pockets of your clothes are deposited
during the washing cycle in the special
double lip trap in the porthole seal, where
they can be conveniently recovered at
the end of the cycle.
15.5 Cleaning the drum
Regularly examine the drum to prevent
unwanted deposits.
Rust deposits in the drum may occur due
to rusting foreign body in the washing or
tap water containing iron
