A washing machine is a sophisticated technique found in almost every home. There are models where the user sets the washing program. There are cars where the setting is already in place, and it is impossible to change it. In the second case, the buyer needs to know the decoding of the alphanumeric indicators indicated by the manufacturer.
The main functional feature of the machines is the drying or spin mode, which facilitates the work of many housewives. They do not need to wring out heavy bedspreads or duvet covers and involve their household for this, as it was before. Now this work is assigned to washing machines.
Spin classes in the washing machine
Modern models allow you to take out the laundry after washing almost in a dry state. From the selected program, the conditions are established to obtain the desired result.
The class, in other words, drying of linen, is provided due to the slow or fast rotation of the drum. The characteristic is calculated empirically. First, the laundry is weighed before immersion in the machine. Then she erases it and squeezes it. The second value is divided by the first and multiplied by 100%.
Varieties of drying classes
In total there are 7 spin classes. They are denoted by the Latin letters of the alphabet. Modern machines have only four classes: A, B, C and D.
Category "A" - due to the fast torsion of the drum, the laundry is completely wrung out. The humidity of the laundry is less than 50%. This includes machines with the highest possible speed (more than 1000 times).
Class "B" - the humidity of things reaches not more than 54%. The engine spins the drum up to 1000 times per minute.
WITH - from 55 to 63% (from 800 rpm.).
D - from 64 to 72% (from 400 revolutions).
Categories "D" to "G" they are not used in vending machines due to the fact that washed clothes are taken out completely moist and must be wrung out manually. This spin class applies to older machines.
The quality of drying is affected by the number of rotations per minute performed by the drum. The more revolutions, the drier the laundry will be. Machines with class "A" or "B" can reach from 1200 to 2000 rpm.
Such models usually have high capacity and standard or large dimensions. From high speed and strong pressing of linen to the walls of the tank, although it turns out to be almost dry, it becomes problematic to stroke it.
Things crumple to such an extent that they cannot be ironed without additional moisture. So high revs are not an indicator of quality washing. The ability of the machine to dry clothes at maximum drum rotations affects the increase in cost and is a marketing move to attract customers.
Narrow models are best purchased at low speeds (from 800 rpm). Due to the strong torsion of the drum, the technique begins to vibrate strongly, especially if there is too much linen in it or it is spread out unevenly. The same thing can happen with machines with a load of about 6 kg.
What is the best spin class in the washing machine and why?
Many modern models have a pre-programmed drying function. It is enough for the user to sort things, choose the installation (synthetics, dark things, bedding, outerwear, etc.) and press the power button. The machine itself knows at what speed it should finish washing. If such a function is not available, the washing program is set up on its own. They differ among themselves depending on the type of clothing.
For example, synthetic light fabrics and outerwear cannot be washed together. Due to an improperly selected mode, clings or, in the worst case, spoilage in the form of torn parts of the fabric, may appear on synthetics or silk fabrics. Consider what conditions are preferable to set for different tissues.
Items from cotton fabrics are usually washed at a temperature of 40-60 degrees. If they are dark in color and not very dirty, they should be washed at 40 degrees. The maximum speed is best used for products that do not need subsequent ironing. It can be: towels, diapers, burlap, blankets, etc.
A temperature of 60 degrees is usually set for white cotton items. A similar program can spoil and repaint the laundry. Turnovers are best set at 800 times per minute. Although in standard machine programs they are from 1000 and above.
Drying varies from 1200 to 800 torsions. For synthetic things, it is desirable to set the temperature to 40 degrees and 400 revolutions of the spin. Higher temperatures are suitable for heavily soiled items.
Hand (delicate) wash, wool
Here, almost all manufacturers program the equipment at 800 revolutions and the washing temperature - 40 degrees. This program is designed for a small number of rinses. Thus, things may not be flushed. For delicate delicate fabrics it is still better to set 400 rpm.
Usually erased at 95 degrees and at speeds from 1200 to 800 times. Due to the high temperature, the products are disinfected in advance and do not need to be ironed after washing. However, under the influence of centrifugal force, they crumple strongly. So they still have to be ironed or rearranged at low spin speeds. There is another way out. Many machines have a function - "easy ironing", which makes the laundry not only clean, but also ironed.
Intensive Wash & Outerwear
It differs from other programs in that each cycle lasts longer than when washing in other established modes. Spin also varies from 800 to the maximum possible. Lingerie, as in previous programs, is crumpled and wrinkled at the exit. For this installation, the optimal mode is 1000 rpm.
It differs from other programs in the minimum period of soaking, washing and spinning. The program is suitable for small things: socks, underpants, T-shirts, T-shirts that do not have much pollution.
Regardless of which washing program you choose, remember that white items are washed separately from dark linen. So that it does not repaint during washing, it should be washed at a temperature of 40 degrees.
Classroom Impact on Energy Consumption
It is known that some models can consume large amounts of electricity. There is a division of cars into energy groups.
Despite the fact that class “A” models require minimal kilowatts for efficient operation, consumption increases at high speeds. This is due to an increase in the load on the electric motor, which needs to spin the drum as quickly as possible.
Thus, the most profitable models are machines with spin class "B" (drying mode no more than 1000 rpm). They must have sufficient capacity and an “A” class of electricity consumption. Also a successful purchase will be a technique that has several drying programs.
Once alone with such a machine, you won’t have to think about how to dry your clothes. It is enough to select on the panel the type of products that need to be washed.
