Why does my washing machine smell?
Run the machine with no laundry at 90 degrees to clear the drum of residues. If suds can be seen in the drum during this process the programme should be repeated until only clean, clear water can be seen. To avoid the recurrence run a 90 degree programme monthly with half the normal amount of a whites, biological detergent.
Check the weight of your laundry, note that the maximum weight for an Easy-Care programme is 50% that of a Linens programme.
Why is my fabric conditioner not emptying?
Please note that it is not unusual for a small amount of water or conditioner to be left in the compartment.
Concentrated softeners may need diluting with water – dilute to the consistency of single cream.
Remove the detergent drawer and thoroughly clean it in hot water. Make sure that the conditioner siphon is perfectly clean. You may also need to clean the roof of the compartment from where the water is fed into the drawer – use a long handled brush to remove all residues.
Why does my fabric conditioner empty too soon?
It may be that a foreign object has blocked the drain pump. Locate the pump cover at the base of the machine. Drain water using pipe (if fitted) or by loosening cap slightly. Fully unscrew the cover and remove any obstructions. If nothing can be found there check the drain hose and your waste system for blockages etc.
Why do I get poor wash results?
It can be beneficial to run a dishwasher cleaner though the machine once every two or three months. Take note of our comments in the user manual regarding combined (2-in-1, 3-in-1, etc) detergent products.

Why is there a bad smell in my dishwasher?
If your dishwasher smells it can only be the result of food debris left within the appliance because of a poor or faulty house drainage system, incorrect installation of the dishwasher drain hose or some sort of blockage in the drain pump (see Dishwasher Will Not Drain). Less likely is a problem with the water supply.
It is a good idea to run a dishwasher cleaner through the appliance every three months or so. Make sure that you also clean and wipe the edges of the door and the door seal, especially at the bottom of the door.
Why is there a bad smell in my fridge?
There is nothing within the construction of a refrigeration appliance that can cause bad odours.
Food spillage will always be the cause of smells. The most common scenario is that liquid (milk, fruit juice, etc.) has been spilt within the fridge and that some of the liquid has entered the defrost drainage channel located on the rear wall of fridge compartment, just above the salad drawers. This can be ducted down to the condensation reservoir located on the top of the compressor at the lower rear of the appliance where it will deteriorate and start to smell.
If this has happened you must thoroughly clean the reservoir and sterilise it, first isolating the appliance from the mains supply.
If the smell still lingers and you are certain that everything has been thoroughly cleaned and sterilised try putting a large bowl of cat litter into the fridge compartment. This helps to absorb the odours and can still be used afterwards for its designated use.
