Program 10 - Gentle: Soap only Program 11 - Gentle: Your soap
DESCRIPTION: These options provide a gentle wash (shorter duration and less agitation). Program 10 ("soap only") will inject our quality soap automatically (with no softener), program 11 ("your soap") will not so you will need to dose your own soap product through the door prior to program start. These programs are ideal for delicates or robust woollens where you may wish to use your own wool mix or similar delicates soap. Please note that the spin cycle is conducted at a slower speed for the Gentle Program so your items will contain more moisture on completion than they will have if washed in a regular cycle. Total wash time is 18 mins.
Program 12 - Heavy: Soap+Soft (add $1)
A heavy wash option is also available (program 12) where a cold pre-rinse to remove loose particles and an extended hot wash cycle are included. Both laundry soap and fabric softener are automatically injected with this program. The cost of this program is $1.00 more than all other cycles due to the additional utilities and wash times. Total wash time is 32 mins.
