Washing Machine Drum Spin CycleOk! Lets’ do it! I will start on those things to keep in mind in buying a washing machine. The one that you need to consider are the features of machine. You must check the Materials of Drum or Tub, as per the experts “stainless steel tub” are the best as they are the most durable and can withstand high spin speeds. “Wash Settings”  Most machines have preset wash programs, such as ‘gentle wash’ for delicate clothes, and water level options you also have to consider it. “Spin Cycle” The spin cycle for drying is measured as revolutions per minute (rpm). The higher the rpm, the better it will dry your clothes. But still it is depend on the type of the clothes. “Fuzzy logic” This feature automatically chooses the best washing conditions depending on the quantity of clothes.    Washing Machine FeaturesWashing Machine Time & Temperature Control

Choose the Washing Cycle

Temperature Control” Some of the machines have steam setting, which helps fight dirt and stains well. “Time delay & pre-soak” Time delay allows you to load the washing machine and start it later. This is useful if you want to avoid the noise at certain times. The pre-soak facility allows you to soak the clothes for a specified period, after which the wash cycle starts automatically. And to let you know at xcite.com most of our washing machine have these very important features.

HOW TO CHOOSE WASHING CYCLE

Do you really know which cycle to use when washing your clothes? Have you ever search for it? In this part I will tackle the 3 basic wash cycles that front-load and top-load washing machine has, Yes you’re reading it right, We all know that this washers has a lot of differences but believe me they have 3 similar basic cycles and here are they.

THE REGULAR OR NORMAL CYCLE

In a basic washing machine, the regular or normal cycle will create the longest cycle with the most agitation. And for a soiled, dirty, sweaty typical load of clothes this is the cycle you want to choose. The normal cycle often lasts anywhere from 8 to 15 minutes.  This is the actual time the machine spends agitating the clothes to get them clean.

THE PERMANENT PRESS CYCLE

For a long time, I just did not know what this cycle was used for.  I now understand that it is primarily used for synthetic fibers such as rayons, knits, polyesters and acetates.  These fabric materials need the agitation of the regular cycle, but the slow spin of the delicate cycle as to not wrinkle clothes.

THE DELICATE CYCLE

The Delicate or Gentle cycle is the most ambiguous of the three.  There is not necessarily a specific fabric that requires the delicate cycle (other than washable silk or wool), however there are many reasons to use this cycle. The delicate cycle uses a ‘slow/slow’ combination, meaning that the wash cycle uses a slow or lesser degree of agitation and the spin cycle uses a slow spin to extract water from laundry. A delicate cycle usually lasts between 4 and 7 minutes during its actual wash cycle.
