5.1 Special features
Your new washing machine meets all
modern requirements for an effective
treatment of laundry with low water,
energy and detergent consumption and
proper care of fabric.
•
•
The ProSense technology detects
the laundry load size defining the
programme duration in 30 seconds.
The washing programme is tailored to
the laundry load and the type of fabric
without consuming more time, energy
and water than necessary.
The steam has a quick and easy way
to refresh the clothes. The gentle
•
steam programmes remove odours
and reduce creases in dry fabrics so
they need little ironing.
The Plus Steam option, finishes
every cycle with gentle steam that
relaxes the fibres and reduces fabric
creasing. Ironing will be easier!
Thanks to the Soft Plus option, the
fabric softener is uniformly spread out
in the laundry and deeply penetrates
the fabric fibres favouring a perfect
softness.

Machine Clean
Denim clothing and jersey items. Normal soil. This pro‐
gramme performs a gentle rinsing phase, designed for den‐
im, that reduces fading and does not cause washing pow‐
der residues on the fibres.
Maintenance cycle with hot water to clean and freshen the
drum and to remove residue that may cause odour. For the
best result use this cycle once a month. Before running this
cycle, remove all items from the drum. In the washing
phase compartment of the detergent dispenser, put the flap
of the compartment in upward position. Pour a cup of chlor‐
ine bleach or a washing machine cleaner in the washing
phase compartment. DO NOT use both together.
After the drum cleaning, run a further rinse cy‐
cle with empty drum and no detergent to re‐
move any residue of bleach.
1) During this cycle the drum rotates slowly to ensure a gentle wash. It can seem that the
drum doesn't rotate or doesn't rotate properly, but this is normal for this programme.
2) If you set a Steam programme with dried laundry, at the end of the cycle the laundry can
be humid. Line dry the items for about 10 minutes.
3) Steam programme doesn't remove particularly intense odour.

12. HINTS AND TIPS
WARNING!
Refer to Safety chapters.
12.1 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.
Empty pockets and unfold.
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);
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.
12.2 Stubborn stains
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.
ENGLISH
Special stain removers are available.
Use the special stain remover that is
applicable to the type of stain and fabric.
12.3 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.
Follow the instructions that you find
on packaging of the detergents or
other treatments without exceeding
the indicated maximum level (
).
Use the recommended detergents for
the type and colour of the fabric, the
programme temperature and the level
of soil.
29
12.4 Ecological hints
•
•
•
•
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".
12.5 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.
13. CARE AND CLEANING

limescale.
The regular detergents already contain
water softening agents, but we
recommend to run a cycle with empty
drum and a descaling product
occasionally.
30
www.electrolux.com
Always follow the
instructions that you find on
the packaging of the
product.
13.3 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
hygienize the inner part of the appliance,
run a maintenance wash regularly (at
least once a month):
1. Remove all laundry from the drum.
2. Run a cotton programme with the
highest temperature with a small
quantity of powder detergent or, if
available, run the Machine Clean
programme.
13.4 Door seal
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.
For a thorough clean:
1. Clean the drum with special products
for stainless steel.
Always follow the
instructions that you find on
the packaging of the
product.
2. Run a short cotton programme at
high temperature with empty drum
and with a small quantity of powder
detergent or, if available, run the
Machine Clean programme.
13.6 Cleaning the detergent
dispenser
