Which programme saves the most energy?

When I wash at 40 degrees I have the option of choosing the quick wash. Does this, however, save more energy than the normal eco 40 degrees wash which does take ages?

Yes a quick wash is for coloured clothes that have been worn once or twice and dont have bad stains on them.This quick wash will take between 30 and 50 mins to do a wash and is the best programme for the clothing that I have discribed ie: worn 1or2 times and no stains will save you on electric and water peter

Hi .have a tricity bendix 1000rpm.. seems to take ages to wash.. what is the timing on a 40 degree wash and a quick cycle


In the early days of Automatic washing machines, manufacturers endeavoured to get the machines to wash rinse and spin as quickly as washing could be done in a twin tub. However the results weren't always good. These days as they don't have to compete with the twin tubs the emphasis is on clothes care and energy saving. so the wash cycle is prolonged without a lot of bashing about and because wash temperatures are very low they need a bit longer in the tub action to achieve the results. Its the heating that costs the money not the tub action. nearly all machines will take up to an hour and a half or longer to wash properly. So you need to change your wash habits to accommodate a long wash time, don't try and do two or three loads in the same day, spread them out over a couple of days. If you are tempted to buy one of the Machines that purport to do washes in half an hour be aware this only applies to items that need freshening up and not normal everyday soiled clothes.

Tip

Save on running costs.


Our clothes rarely get dirty, just need freshening really, and I got sick and tired of waiting almost 2 hours for the programme to stop.

I checked the times of different settings and found that programme J... silks.... only takes around 1 hour, washes at a higher water level and is around 40 degrees.

Now I never use any other programme. Dont over load your machine, dont put too many towels in as this programme is designed for 3kg, so check the weights till you are used to how your drum looks with different types of clothes etc.

We rarely need a heavy wash, and if I do I feel its better to do 2 light washes than do 1 protracted wash in the same water.

Im saving fuel and getting my washing done in half the time too.

RING OF BLACK ON NEPTUNE WASHER- ORIGINAL GASKET WAS REPLACED YEARS AGO BY MAYTAG WHEN PROBLEM WAS IST DIAGNOSED- NOW IT HAS RETURNED=CAN I USE A SAFE RINSE OF WHITE VINEGAR TO REMOVE IT? ANY OTHER EASY...


Many people use 40 degrees washes almost exclusively these days and the current trend is to use even lower temperatures to save energy ( Do you save as much as you think? Washing at 30 degrees ). Remember that a non-biological powder, doesn't work as well at lower temperatures so washing at low temperatures requires biological detergent for best results. It's also worth noting that bed bugs (or their eggs) are reported to be able to survive washing at lower temperatures and therefore it is recommended that bedding sheets should be washed at 60 degrees ( Related Whitegoodshelp Blog article: Bed bugs don't drown in the washing machine - but at least they get cleaned )

Also, (as mentioned in detail later) a regular 90 degrees maintenance wash is needed.

Washing machines now commonly suffer from a build up of a greasy deposit and bacteria that causes bad smells, rots hoses & door gaskets and blocks the pressure system causing overfilling or spin failure. An even more serious consequence of this problem is that the aluminium based drum spiders can be corroded by this grease and in serious cases can cause one or more arms to break. This is often fatal to the washing machine. Replace the door gasket with this part and wash the inside of the machine at least once a month with a GOOD HE washer cleaner like this one.

Washing wool?


I assume you are asking if there is a wool programme.

There should be a seperate wool programme incorporated in the timer or programme control unit, and it is usually a 40 degree wash.

WATER USEAGE


Depending on the age and size of your washer-Front loaders cut water use by nearly 40 percent. A typical top-loading washer uses about 40 gallons of water for each full load. In contrast, a full-size horizontal axis clothes washer uses only 20 to 25 gallons. That means that, by purchasing a horizontal axis model, you could save as much as 7,000 gallons of water per year. You also save all the energy you would have used to heat that water, meaning added savings for you and a big boost for the environment. These appliances also use less energy than conventional washers - approximately 50 percent less, according to the Environmental Protection Agency.

Does wt960 have an eco mode?


This model does not have a specfic energy save programme, however, by selecting a coolwash at 30oC or a mini load, you will use less energy.
These features are detailed in the user instructions.

No problem but what is timer save on wd440


Quick wash is normally used for clothes that are lightly soiled, and do not require a full wash programme,it has nothing to do with the amount of washing in the m/c.
Time saver cuts down on the actual length of the prog, by approx 1/3, there by saving time, again you would normally use this for washing lightly soiled clothing, it is only available on progs B-D and G

The 3 buttons


button selection : To select an option press the button and you will see a light come on above the button. Press again to cancel and the light will go out. You cannot alter the options once the machine is running. Note : remember to cancel buttons after use!

As you look at the machine
Left hand button... Rinse Hold.. use this option to Help reduce creasing of delicate or synthetic fabrics by holding clothes in the final rinse water. The rinse hold light will flash to indicate that the programme is holding final rinse water. Complete the final spin by pressing the Rinse Hold button when light is flashing.
This is not available with Wool or Spin only programmes.

Middle Button.... Energy Save... use this option to save money and time on lightly soiled loads. This is not available with the Quick Wash, Rinse and Spin, or Spin Only programmes.

Right Hand Button .... Super Rinse... use this option for Large Wash loads and items for young children or people with sensitive skin. This option increases the water level for the first two rinses. This is not available with Cold Wash, Rinse and Spin or Spin Only programmes.

Copied from my Hotpoint FEW12 user instruction sheet.
Hope it helps.

Zanussi ZWF1437W washing machine - wont start


The error message "Err" usually indicates that the wash program and option are not compatible. 40 degrees and 900 rpm Spin should be o.k.. I would try another wash program with no special options and see if the problem goes away.
