Before washing your first load of laundry, we recommend that you run a cotton cycle at 60Â°C, with the machine empty, in order to remove any manufacturing residue from the drum and tub. Pour half a measure of detergent into the main wash compartment and start up the machine.
1. Place the laundry in the drum
Open the door. Place the laundry in the drum, one item at a time, shaking them out as much as possible. Close the door.
4. Select the temperature
Turn the dial to the required setting.
5. Select the required option(s) and the spin speed
2. Measure out the detergent
Pull out the dispenser drawer until it stops. Measure out the amount of detergent recommended by the manufacturer in a graduated cup and pour it into the main wash compartment . If you wish to carry out the soak or a programme with prewash, pour detergent into the appropriate compartment marked .
