Indesit iwc6083 Washer User Manual

Detergents and laundry
Detergent dispenser drawer
Good washing results also depend on the correct
dose of detergent: adding too much detergent will not
necessarily result in a more efficient wash, and may in
fact cause build up on the inside of your appliance
and contribute to environmental pollution.
Do not use hand washing detergents because these
create too much foam.
Open the detergent
dispenser drawer and
pour in the detergent or
washing additive, as
ompartment 1: Pre-wash detergent (powder)
Before pouring in the detergent, make sure that extra
compartment 4 has been removed.
compartment 2: Detergent for the wash cycle
(powder or liquid)
Liquid detergent should only be poured in immediately
prior to the start of the wash cycle.
compartment 3: Additives (fabric softeners, etc.)
The fabric softener should not overflow the grid.
extra compartment 4: Bleach
Bleach cycle
Traditional bleach should be used on sturdy white
fabrics, and delicate bleach for coloured fabrics,
synthetics and for wool.
This option is particularly
useful for the removal of
stubborn stains. Place
extra compartment 4
(supplied) into
compartment 1.
When pouring in the
bleach, be careful not to
exceed the "max" level
marked on the central
pivot (see figure).
To run the bleach cycle on its own, pour the bleach into
extra compartment 4, set the "Rinse"
and activate the "Stain removal"
To bleach during a wash cycle, pour in the detergent
and any fabric softener you wish to use, set the desired
wash cycle and enable the "Stain removal"
The use of extra compartment 4 excludes the Pre-
wash option.
Preparing the laundry
 Divide the laundry according to:
- the type of fabric/the symbol on the label
- the colours: separate coloured garments from
 Empty all garment pockets and check the buttons.
 Do not exceed the listed values, which refer to the
weight of the laundry when dry:
Durable fabrics: max. 6 kg
Synthetic fabrics: max. 2,5 kg
Delicate fabrics: max. 2 kg
Wool: max. 1,5 kg
Silk: max. 1 kg
How much does your laundry weigh?
1 sheet 400-500 g
1 pillow case 150-200 g
1 tablecloth 400-500 g
1 bathrobe 900-1200 g
1 towel 150-250 g
Garments requiring special care
Wool: all wool garments can be washed using
programme 6, even those carrying the "hand-wash
label. For best results, use special
detergents and do not exceed 1,5 kg of laundry.
Silk: use special wash cycle 7 to wash all silk
garments. We recommend the use of special
detergent which has been designed to wash delicate
Curtains: fold curtains and place them in a pillow
case or mesh bag. Use wash cycle 7.
Jeans: Turn garments inside-out before washing and
use a liquid detergent. Use programme 8.
Load balancing system
Before every spin cycle, to avoid excessive vibrations
and to distribute the load in a uniform manner, the
drum rotates continuously at a speed which is slightly
greater than the washing rotation speed. If, after
several attempts, the load is not balanced correctly,
the machine spins at a reduced spin speed. If the
load is excessively unbalanced, the washing machine
performs the distribution process instead of spinning.
To encourage improved load distribution and balance,
we recommend small and large garments are mixed
in the load.
