Load Size
It is important not to overload your washing machine as doing so can lead to inferior wash results and, in very extreme cases, possible damage to your laundry.
We recommend that you leave about an 8-10cm gap between the top of the laundry and the top of the door opening or, a hand-width approximately. This space allows the laundry to move correctly in the drum and for water to flow through the clothing getting them properly cleaned and rinsed.

Program Selection
When selecting a wash program we recommend the normal cotton 40˚C wash for most everyday clothing. This program offers a good balance of time, care and performance as well as energy use.
For low temperature washing (less than 40˚C) you will need to use a detergent that is designed for washing in low temperature.
For bedding, towels and the like we strongly recommend washing using a program set to 60˚C or higher with a bleach containing detergent wherever possible. Doing this kills mites etc as well as helping to maintain the internal cleanliness of your washing machine.
Delicate items such as wool, many modern mixed fabrics and synthetics require to be washed with special gentle or fine detergents. Using normal detergents to wash these delicate items can result in permanent damage to your garments. Please select one of the delicate wash cycles to wash delicates as the stronger wash action on more robust cycles can also cause damage to delicate items.
Quick wash programs are designed for refreshing items that have not been worn or very lightly soiled items only. Quick wash cycles are not recommended for normally soiled clothing.

Spin Speed Selection
In some respects spin speed selection is a matter of personal preference however, if you intend to tumble dry or dry the washed garments in a tumble dryer or one of our drying cabinets, we would recommend a high spin speed is used when possible.
Where you intend to line dry reducing the spin speed will reduce energy use as well as also reducing creasing, making items easier to iron and requiring less energy.
Do however take note of the recommendations on the garment care label as many items, especially delicate clothing, can be damaged if you use a high spin speed inappropriately.

Maintenance Wash
We recommend that you occasionally carry out what is known as a "maintenance wash" to clean the inner tank of your washing machine. Although, unlike most other washing machines, ours is entirely constructed from stainless steel and is far less susceptible to the build up of bacteria it is considered to be best practice.
To do so is very simple, just use a bleach containing detergent that you would use for whites and lights as a normal load, select the highest wash temperature possible and run the wash cycle with no load in the drum.
This process clears out any detergent residues, bacteria and so on helping to maintain your washing machine internally.

External Cleaning
To clean the external case and control panel of your washing machine please avoid using harsh chemical cleaners, particularly on the control panel. 
The control panel, in order to maintain it's looks and stencilling, requires to be cleaned with a cloth and water, we find that a good microfibre cloth and water is normally sufficient however a mild non-abrasive detergent can be used if needed.
For the main casing, door and so on we recommend a non-abrasive detergent and a cloth to clean.
The use of harsh chemical products or abrasive cleaners may cause permanent damage and should be avoided.
Pay particular attention to the soap dispenser and ensure that this is cleaned regularly and do not allow a build up of detergent residue or conditioner residues to form as, for some, these can react chemically and cause staining or damage to the dispenser front in more extreme cases.
