When choosing a water temperature, these are the basic points to consider:
- Hot water cleans most effectively, but it shouldn’t be used for all items.
- Warm water can be used for most normally soiled loads.
- Cold water is recommended for lightly soiled or brightly colored or dark items.
To compensate for a cooler wash, it may be necessary to soak or prewash heavily soiled items, increase wash time or use additional laundry products to boost the detergent’s cleaning power.
To protect your fabrics, not all temperatures are available with every cycle. If a temperature is not appropriate for the cycle, it cannot be selected. Your Electrolux Front Load Washer is smart. It will remember the temperature you select for a cycle and recall it each time until you change it.
