CONSUMPTION VALUES

Stated values are obtained in laboratory conditions with relevant standards. Different causes can change the data: the quantity and type of laundry and ambient temperature. Water pressure, the supply voltage and the temperature of inlet water may also affect the washing programme duration.

Technical specifications may be changed without prior notice to improve the quality of product.

At the start of the programme, the display shows the programme duration for the maximum load capacity.

During the washing phase the programme duration is automatically calculated and can be greatly 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; actual load 1 kg, the programme duration will be less than 1 hour).

When the appliance is calculating the real programme duration a dot flashes in the display.
