Lift the rear part of the siphon to remove it as illustrated. C If more than normal amount of water and softener mixture starts to gather in the softener compartment, clean the siphon. 2 Wash the detergent drawer and the siphon with plenty of lukewarm water in a washbasin. Wear protective gloves or use an appropriate brush to avoid touching of the residues in the drawer with your skin when cleaning. 3 After cleaning, replace the siphon back to its seating and push its front section downwards to make sure that the locking tab engages. 6.2 Cleaning the loading door and the drum Residues of softener, detergent and dirt may accumulate in your machine in time and may cause unpleasant odours and washing complaints. To avoid this, use the Drum Cleaning programme. If your machine is not featured with Drum Cleaning programme, use Cottons-90 programme and select Additional Water or Extra Rinse auxiliary functions as well. Run the programme without any laundry in the machine. Before starting the programme, put max. 100 g of powder anti-limescale into the main wash detergent compartment(compartment nr. 2). If the anti-limescale is in tablet form, put only one tablet into compartment nr. 2. Dry the inside of the bellow with a clean piece of cloth after the programme has come to an end. C Repeat Drum Cleaning process in every 2 months. C Use an anti-limescale suitable for the washing machines. After every washing check that no foreign substance is left in the drum. If the holes on the bellow shown in the figure is blocked, open the holes using a toothpick. C Foreign metal substances will cause rust stains in the drum.
