  • The repeated and prolonged use of low-temperature programmes can cause detergent deposits, fluff residues, bacterial growth inside the drum and the tub.
  • This could generate bad odours and mildew. To eliminate these deposits and clean the inner part of the appliance, run a maintenance wash regularly (at least once a month).
