REMAINING MOISTURE CONTENT OF THE
LAUNDRY AFTER SPINNING
The degree of moisture remaining in the laundry after spinning mainly depends on the fabric type, the
selected programme and spin speed. The lowest remaining moisture content can be achieved using the
wash programme referred to by the Energy Label, with maximum spin speed. This programme is marked
in the separate programme chart as "Reference programme for the Energy Label". Below a survey of the
remaining moisture content (in %) related to the various spin-drying efficiency classes:

A (= most efficient)
SAVE ENERGY AND HELP PROTECTING THE
• You reach the best use of energy, water, detergent and time by running the programmes with the
maximum load size.
• Save energy by using a 60°C instead of a 95°C wash programme, or by using a 40°C instead of a 60°C
• Use "Prewash" for heavily soiled laundry only. Save detergent, time, water and energy by not selecting
"Prewash" for lightly or normally soiled laundry.
• Do not exceed the detergent dosages indicated in the manufacturer's instructions.
• Select a high spin speed if you intend to dry your laundry in a tumble dryer, in order to reduce time and
energy for the drying process.
EXPLANATION OF THE ENERGY LABEL
(only for washing machines with Energy Label according to Directive 2010/30/EU)
The Energy Label contains information on performance and consumption of your washing machine:
The bold black arrow marks the energy efficiency class (A+++ = most efficient / D = least efficient).
