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.
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.
ENGLISH
underwired bras, belts, tights,
shoelaces, ribbons, 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.
• Button up pillowcases, close zippers,
hooks and poppers. Tie up belts,
cords, shoelaces, ribbons and any
other loose elements.
• Empty pockets and unfold the items.
23
– 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.
12.4 Ecological hints
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.
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
• 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
additive for water softening. In areas
where the water hardness is soft it is not
necessary to use him.
To find out the water hardness in your
area, contact your local water authority.
