Recommendations on the use of detergent at various temperatures.
When washing heavily soiled whites, we recommend using cotton programs of 60°C
or above and a normal washing powder (heavy duty) that contains bleaching agents
that at medium/high temperatures provide excellent results.
For washes between 40°C and 60°C the type of detergent used needs to be appropriate
for the type of fabric and level of soiling.
Normal powders are suitable for “white” or colour fast fabrics with high soiling, while
liquid detergents or “colour protecting” powders are suitable for coloured fabrics with
light levels of soiling.
For washing at temperatures below 40°C we recommend the use of liquid detergents
or detergents speciﬁcally labeled as suitable for low temperature washing.
For washing wool or silk, only use detergents speciﬁcally formulated for these fabrics.
For dosage amounts please follow the instructions on the detergent package label.
Only use detergents that are suitable for use in a washing machine.You will obtain
the best results from your wash with the minimum use of chemical products, and the
best care for your laundry if you take into consideration the level of dirtiness as well as
the type of detergent to choose.

possible to reduce the amount of detergent.

The dosages shown on the packaging of detergents for washing delicates often already
refer to a reduced wash size.
Always follow the dosage instructions on the detergent packaging.
An over dosing of detergent can cause excessive foaming.
If the appliance detects the presence of excessive foam, it may exclude the spinning
phase or extend the duration of the program and increase water consumption.
