How do I use the detergent drawer compartments in my washing machine?

Detergent Drawer Compartments

Your washing machine has different compartments for different detergents and washing aids. Ensure you add the correct type of detergent to the correct department when operating the machine.

 

The detergent drawer differs slightly by model.
