Special wash cycles
Jeans: turn the garments inside out before washing and
use liquid detergent. Use wash cycle 7.

fabrics and colours.

minimises the formation of creases.

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

detergents containing softeners. Stuffed duvets cannot
