some rinses.
3) Set the spin speed. Make sure that it agrees with the laundry. To select the DRAIN programme only, set the
function NO SPIN.
4) Set this programme to decrease the time and the consumption of energy and water.
5) Standard programmes for the Energy Label consumption values.
According to regulation 1061/2010, the «Baumwolle Eco - Coton Eco 60° C» and «Baumwolle Eco - Coton Eco
40° C» are respectively the «standard 60° C cotton programme» and the «standard 40° C cotton programme».
They are the most efficient programmes in terms of combined energy and water consumptions for washing
normally soiled cotton laundry.
The water temperature of the washing phase may differ from the temperature declared for the selected programme.

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 8 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.
