Great value product


This wash machine is very quiet which is really good. But you cannot customize your own process, you can only choose between the default ones. This is a bit annoying because the fast wash is only 15mins and all the others are around one hour or longer.

Hi there - I'm trying to work out the best setting to use for a load of washing when I have a mix of different clothes - just purched this new machine - nothing in the user manual lets me know

3 answers

There is a 55 min cycle called Mix. I use it for soiled jeans, towels, sheets, tea towels. I use quick 15min fast wash for 30 mins for lightly soiled clothing. Just press right side temp button twice for extra time on fast wash.
