Care and cleaning

icon-warning.pngWarning
Refer to Safety chapters.

External cleaning

Clean the appliance only with soap and warm water. Fully dry all the surfaces.

icon-warning.pngCAUTION
Do not use alcohol, solvents or chemical products.

Descaling

If the water hardness in your area is high or moderate, we recommend that you use a water descaling product for washing machines.

Regularly examine the drum to prevent limescale and rust particles.

To remove rust particles use only special products for washing machine. Do this separately from the laundry wash.

Maintenance wash

With the low temperature programmes it is possible that some detergent stays in the drum. Make regularly a maintenance wash. To do this:

  • Remove the laundry from the drum.

  • Set the cotton programme with the highest temperature with a small quantity of detergent.
