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);

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.

14.2 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.

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.

• 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.

34 www.electrolux.com

14.4 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".

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.

14.6 Prepare the drying cycle

• Open the water tap.

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.

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.

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

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.
