Distribute the washing evenly in the drum and press down firmly, so as to avoid leaving empty spaces (and thus avoiding excessive vibration of the machine during operation). 4. Press the loaded washing down, so that D there is a gap of at least 3 cm between the washing and the top edge of the drum. Lastly, cover the washing with a cloth, the ends of which should be tucked well down inside the drum, so as to avoid items of washing being catapulted out during operation. 5. Close the lid. 5 Spin Drying Times • For normal washing: 3-5 minutes. The residual moisture amounts to: approx: 65% in machines with a spin speed of 1400 rpm; approx: 40% in machines with a spin speed of 2800 rpm; • For washing which requires no ironing: 15-30 seconds max.
