Silly question about rinse cycle temp

Postby Solstice_3 » Sun Nov 27, 2011 2:45 pm

I've been through my washing machine manual and can't figure this out :-? . When I select rinse as a separate program will it rinse my stuff in cold water or hot water? At the moment I am selecting cold on the temp dial just in case and I keep forgetting to turn it back afterwards, in fact I think I might have washed my nappies on the cold setting by mistake :oops:

I don't have a prewash setting unless I use the 90 Program or 50 Synthetics and some of my nappies say wash at 40 so can't use them....

Any help appreciated :)

On a good note reading my manual lead me to discover the sensitive setting, it uses more water in the rinse cycle to help wash out detergent so will be using that from now on to wash my nappies ^_^

I'm fairly sure my machine rinses cold, it only feels warm when washing.

Mine is a cold rinse. I only know because I did a test run by doing a rinse cycle and feeling the washing machine door with my hand to see if it got hot :wink:

My old machine had a prewash function but I was never sure of what temp it was so always turned the dial down
My new one however does not have a prewash function so I just use the 30 min fast wash with the temp at zero

I assumed mine was cold. Personally i's just leave it on normal if you start to get smells then you nay have to select cold. But after all the cold rince only stops smells from setting (a far as I'm awear)
