Detergents and laundry
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; they create too
much foam.
Open the detergent
dispenser drawer and pour
in the detergent or washing
additive, as follows.
Compartment 1: Pre-wash detergent (powder)
Before pouring in the detergent, make sure that extra
compartment 4 has been removed.
Compartment 2: Washing detergent (powder or
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
Extra compartment 5: we recommend this
compartment is used for liquid detergent.

Special wash cycles
Jeans: turn the garments inside out before washing and
use liquid detergent. Use wash cycle 7.
Shirts: use special wash cycle 8 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 9, 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 10 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
1 kg.
Silk: use special wash cycle 11 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 11.
Sport Shoes (
wash cycle
12): is for washing sports
shoes; for best results, do not wash more than 2 pairs
Outwear (
wash cycle
13): 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.
