Indesit PWE 91472 S Washer User Manual

Detergents and laundry
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.
Mix-Cool 30’:
this wash cycle was designed to wash
lightly soiled garments quickly: it lasts just 30 minutes
and therefore saves both energy and time. By selecting
wash cycle 8, it is possible to wash different fabrics
(except for wool and silk items) using a cold cycle, up to
a maximum load of 3 kg.
Wool: wash cycle 9 can be used to wash all woollen
garments in the machine, even those carrying the “hand
wash only” label. To achieve the best results, use a
special detergent and do not exceed the maximum load of
2 kg.
Delicates: use special wash cycle 10 to wash all silk
garments. We recommend the use of special detergent
which has been designed to wash delicate clothes.
Curtains: we recommend you fold the curtains and place
them in a pillow case or mesh bag. Use wash cycle 10.
Duvet: to wash double or single duvets (the weight
of which should not exceed 3 kg), cushions or clothes
padded with goose down such as puffa jackets, use the
special wash cycle number 11 “Duvet”. We recommend
that duvets are placed in the drum with their edges folded
inwards (see figure) and that no more than ¾ of the total
volume of the drum is used.
To achieve the best results, we recommend that a
liquid detergent is used and placed inside the detergent
dispenser drawer.
Outwear (
wash cycle
12): is studied for washing water-
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.
Sport Shoes (
wash cycle
13): is for washing sports
shoes; for best results, do not wash more than 2 pairs
Detergent dispenser drawer
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.
! Do not use hand washing detergents because these create
too much foam.
! Use powder detergent for white cotton garments, for pre-
washing, and for washing at temperatures over 60°C.
! Follow the instructions given on the detergent packaging.
Open the detergent
dispenser drawer and pour
in the detergent or washing
additive, as follows.
! Detergent should only be poured into the compartment A.
Compartment A: Washing detergent (powder or
Liquid detergent should only be poured in immediately
prior to the start of the wash cycle.
Compartment B: Additives (fabric softeners, etc.)
The fabric softener should not overflow the grid.
Extra compartment C: we recommend this
compartment is used for liquid detergent.
