Wascator FOM 71 CLS is a type A, Automatic Washing Machine.
Only Reference Detergents 2 (IEC A*), 3 (ECE A) and 6 (IEC A) should be used.
These will be referred to as Detergent Base Powders for the purpose of this document.
A total of 20g of detergent should be used, NOT 100g as is sometimes mistakenly used.
The 20g is made up of three components:
- Detergent Base Powder
- Sodium Perborate Tetrahydrate
- Tetra-Acetylethylene (TAED)
These should be dry mixed throughly before adding to the dispenser.
These components should be used in the following proportions:
- Detergent Base Powder 77 parts/percent (15.4g)
- Sodium Perborate Tetrahydrate 20 parts/percent (4g)
- TAED 3 parts/percent (0.6g)
Once dry mixed, the detergent should be used immediately.
If this is not possible, mixed detergent may be kept in a sealed container for a maximum of 14 days, provided this does not contradict the expiry dates on the individual components.
