We do not recommend using tablet or capsule type detergents, or detergents using a ball or net, when washing large items.
We do not recommend using tablet or capsule type detergents, or ball or net types. Dilute highly-enriched or concentrated agents before applying.
Models with an automatic dispenser have three compartments: two compartments for auto dispensing and another part for manual input. If the Auto Detergent and Auto Softener settings are enabled, the washing machine dispenses an appropriate amount of detergent or fabric softener into the drum according to the cycle.
Please note: To use the manual dispenser, make sure the auto dispenser is switched off. Press "Dose per Wash" until the Auto dispense indicators are off.
The refill indicator will light up on the Auto Dispenser section when you need to refill the compartment.
If the auto dispenser indicator is flashing, check that the detergent drawer is closed properly. Open the drawer and close it again. If it is still flashing, you may need to clean the detergent compartment to remove any hardened liquid detergent.
