It allows you to select any wash you like, and set the temperature as you require it, thus giving you much more flexibility over the programmes.
Do not use it at 95 for all your washing, as it will cause problems with clothes shrinkind, and colours running.
Check the washcare labels on clothing before selecting the correct temperature, you can always go lower than the recommended temperature, but do not set it higher than it is supposed to be.
Problem seems to have corrected itself! I tried another slow spin cycle, waited a reasonable interval for the Door Locked light to go off, then when it didn't I switched the power to the machine off. I tried squeezing the door catch a few times and pressing the door downwards, then left it. Some time later when I went into the kitchen the door was open. I washed a small load this morning and the machine worked normally. Fingers crossed, it's ok now.
