Successful 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.

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. 7 kg
Synthetic fabrics: max. 3 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 900-1,200 g
1 towel 150-250 g
Special wash cycles
Jeans: turn the garments inside out before washing
and use liquid detergent. Use wash cycle 6.
Shirts: use special wash cycle 7 to wash shirts in
various fabrics and colours.
It guarantees maximum care is taken of the garments
and minimises the formation of creases.
Wool: wash cycle 8 can be used to wash all woollen
garments in the machine, even those carrying the hand
label. To achieve the best results, use a
special detergent and do not exceed the maximum load
of 1,5 kg.

garments. We recommend the use of special detergent

repellent fabrics and winter jackets (e.g. Gore-Tex,
polyester, nylon); for best results, use a liquid detergent
and dosage suitable for a half-load; pre-treat necks,
cuffs and stains if necessary; do not use softeners or
detergents containing softeners. Stuffed duvets cannot
be washed with this programme.
Load balancing system
Before every spin cycle, to avoid excessive vibrations
before every spin 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 washer-dryer performs the
distribution process instead of spinning. To encourage
improved load distribution and balance, we
recommend small and large garments are mixed in
