•
Keeping within the load limits indicated in the
“PROGRAMM CHART” will optimise energy, water and
detergent consumption and reduce washing times.
Do not exceed the detergent quantities recommended by
the detergent manufacturer.
Save energy by using a 60 °C instead of a 90 °C wash
programme, or by using a 40 °C instead of a 60 °C wash
programme. We recommend using “ Cotton ” the 60
°C programme for cotton garments, which is longer, but
uses less energy.
To save energy and time when washing, select highest
spin speed available for the programme to reduce the
residual water remaining in the garments at the end of the
wash cycle.
Pretreat any stains with an appropriate stain remover,
or else dampen any dried-on stains with water prior
to washing, as this will reduce the need to use a high
temperature watch programme.
Use the “Colours 15°” programme for lightly soiled
coloured garments; this will reduce the amount of energy
used to heat the water.
This is needed to prevent the filter from blocking and
preventing the water from draining correctly.
