    5.2 Description of options 5.2.1 Night cycle Eliminates all spin phases and adds three rinses in COTTON cycles and two rinses in SYNTHETICS cycles. Stops the appliance with water in the tub before the final rinse. Switches off the buzzer (if configured) To drain the water select a drain or spin cycle.
  • Page 12: Sensitive

    5.2.9 Sensitive Adds a rinse in the COTTON – SYNTHETIC FABRICS. During the cotton cycles the movements pass from vigorous to normal. Eliminates the intermediate spins except from the last two which are reduced. 5.2.10 Extra rinse Adds two rinses in the COTTON, SYNTHETICS and DELICATES cycles. Eliminates the intermediate spin cycles, with the exception of the last rinse, which is reduced to 450 rpm.
  • Page 13: Time Reduction (Quick)

    5.2.17 Time reduction (Quick) Modifies the structure of the COTTON - SYNTHETICS– DELICATES programmes to obtain washing time very short (optimization for small or lightly-soiled loads). Reduces the no. of rinses (one rinse less). Increases the water level of the other two rinses. Corresponds to the SHORT- VERY SHORT cycles on the basis of the configuration of the appliance.
  • Page 14: Display (Some Models)

    5.4 Display (some models) The display shows the following information: three flashing digits, when the appliance is switched on. the duration of the washing programme, which appears after selecting it. This time corresponds to that necessary for the maximum load for every type of programme. After starting the programme, the time diminishes (and updates) by every minute.

    6.8 Control of water level in tub The water fill is carried out in two phases: • level fill: is controlled by the closure of 1 level pressure switch in full position • time fill: the duration is calculated by the electronic to fill the set quantity. The different levels are determined by the model configuration and depend on the type of tub used.
