7 â€śSpecial Programmesâ€ť button
Pressing this button selects the following options: - EXTRA RINSE: can be selected with all programmes except the wool programme. The machine carries out 4 rinses instead of 3. This option is recommended for people who are sensitive to detergents and in areas where the water is very soft. This option can only be selected after having pressed the FABRICS button to select the required wash programme. - SOAK: select this option for heavily soiled laundry. This function cannot be used with the wool programme. The machine performs a soak at 40Â°C (the drum rotates occasionally) and stops with the water in the drum. The water can be emptied out in 2 ways: - empty only by pressing the START/PAUSE button; - empty and spin selecting a SPIN SPEED and pressing the START/PAUSE button. The machine automatically drains after 18 hours, if a drain or spin option has not been selected. At the end of the soak, and after having emptied out the water (the three zeros on the display flash), select the required wash programme (the machine must be first switched off and then on) or call one up using the â€śmemoryâ€ť buttons, then start the machine by pressing the START/PAUSE button. - RINSES: with this option, it is possible to rinse and spin garments which have been washed by hand, such as synthetics or delicates and types of wool which are not machine washable. The machine performs 3 delicate rinses with a high water level, followed by a final spin at 700 rpm. It is of course also possible to select a slower or a higher spin speed using the SPIN SPEED button. Important: if you wash cotton fabrics by hand and select max. spin speed, the machine will perform 3 rinses with a low water level, a number of intermediate spins and a final spin at maximum, particularly recommended for cottons. - SPIN: when this option is selected, the machine performs a spin at 700 rpm. Different spin speeds can be selected by pressing the SPIN SPEED button, but always take into account the type of fabric washed. - DRAIN: this programme can be selected to empty out the water (e.g. for programmes with which the RINSE HOLD option has been selected).
8 FRESHEN UP button
This is a complete programme in its own right, that is not compatible with any of the other options, except DELAY START. For use with laundry which is lightly soiled or which needs freshening up (max. 2 kg). The machine performs a 30 minute wash cycle at 30Â°C, with a final spin at 650 rpm.
9 TIME TO FINISH display
This display provides the following information: - three flashing dashes appear immediately after pressing the ON/OFF button and indicate that the machine is ready to receive instructions for the required wash programme; - Duration of the selected wash programme, calculated automatically on the basis of the maximum recommended load for each type of fabric. The figures on the display flash until the machine is started with the START button. After the programme has started, the time remaining is updated every 10 minutes, and every 5 minutes during the last 20 minutes. About 20 minutes after the programme has started, the time remaining is updated on the basis of the actual load size being washed (cottons only). When the programme has finished, after the door lock has released, three flashing zeros are displayed. - Delayed start, programmed using the DELAY START button (11). The selected delay (19 hours max.) is indicated in the display. The countdown is updated every hour, and every 5 minutes during the last hour. - PAUSE: when the START/PAUSE is pressed while a wash programme is running, the figures in the display, which indicate the time remaining, start to flash. - Machine heating phase. A dot to the right of the figures in the display indicates that the machine is heating the water. - Incorrect option selection. If an option which is not compatible with the set wash programme is selected, the message Err is displayed.
