6. CONSUMPTION VALUES
At programme start the display shows the duration programme for the maximum load capacity.
During the washing phase the programme duration is automatically calculated
and can greatly be reduced if the laundry load is lower than the maximum load
capacity (e.g. Cotton 60°C, maximum load capacity 7 kg, the programme duration exceeds 2 hours; real load 1 kg, the programme duration don’t reach 1
hour).
When the appliance is calculating the real programme duration a dot blinks in
the display.
The data of this table are approximate. Different causes can change the data:
the quantity and type of laundry, the water and ambient temperature.
