Do you understand what does this program signify with respect to the washing machine? You must have heard about child lock program in case of cars. When this program is used then children cannot open the car door by accident or otherwise. However, in case of the washing machine, the program does not only mean that the washing machine is locked but you should not open when the machine is on the run. There is a number of different programs that exist for the variety of clothes. The program decides the cycle timing for different types of clothes.
Programs for cotton clothes and synthetic clothes are different
Washing machines provide different programs for washing synthetic and cotton clothes as the washing conditions of these two different types of fabric differ. Synthetic clothes do not need too hot water for washing as they are sensitive to hot temperature. If you wash in hot water then there is a chance that clothes can get damaged. In some of the washing machines, this program is also called “easy care” cycle. Fabrics like viscose or polyester must be washed under this program.
For washing cotton clothes the program can use little warm water for better wash and the cycle will be so timed that it will not damage the clothes. Certain machines also provide different programs for woolen clothes where the cycle time and temperature of the water may possess some other setting.
As a user, you do not have to set these parameters but you have to simply choose the right program, depending upon the type of clothes that you want to wash.
