Selecting this option enables you to suitably adjust drum rotation, temperature and water to a reduced load of lightly soiled cotton and synthetic fabrics (refer to the ““Table of wash cycles”). “ ” enables you to wash in less time thereby saving water and electricity. We suggest using a liquid detergent suitably measured out to the load quantity.
!This function may not be used in conjunction with wash cycles 1, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14,
The function saves energy by not heating the water used to wash your laundry - an advantage both to the environment and to your energy bill. Instead, intensified wash action and water optimisation ensure great wash results in the same average time of a standard cycle. For the best washing results we recommend the usage of a liquid detergent. This function may not be used in conjunction with wash cycles 6, 7, 8, 10, 12, 13, 14, , .
Detergents and laundry

Good 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.
Garments requiring special care
Outwear (wash cycle 9): is studied for washing waterrepellent 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. Wool: all wool garments can be washed using programme 10, even those carrying the “hand-wash only” label. If the load is excessively unbalanced, the washing machine performs the distribution process instead of spinning. To encourage improved load distribution and balance, we recommend small and large garments are mixed in the load.
