Since the first day I saw Indesit moon, I wanted to tell that it is not so original idea, since gorenje already had that similar click and go type of programming.. However I wasn"t sure, because the last time I saw it was 2002 and even then they were rare.. I mean it is similar to Indesit moon only when it comes to programming lol :)

I am not sure if max available temperature on this washer is 60, maybe "60/90" sign means "60 - same result as 90".
Any more information about this machine would be awesome. :D


I am not going to buy this machine or anything else, I just saw it and took pics :)

Dex, I wonder what the max spin speed is. Looking at that control panel dont think you can set a rinse or spin only programme at least Indesit moon could do a rinse only programme.

love the symbols

so cute! Especially that little friendly sheep for woolens.
Btw. didn't Candy make oval shaped portholes in the 70s?
Neat machine, get it!

Siemens1833 on youtube owns one of these and you can see it in this video. Maybe you can ask him what temperature options there are but I think you can wash @ 90

It can do a rinse & spin programme you select the 30 minute quick wash programme. You put the wet hand washed items in the drum & the detergent sensor detects the detergent & it automatically sets a rinse & spin programme instead of the 30 minute quick wash.

Yes it was a badly programmed machine. Even though it was a 1400 spin washer it would only spin at 1400rpm on the 60deg wash. the coloured 40deg wash would only spin at 1000rpm not very fast for items like jeans.

i would rather use this than the moon.

it detects rinse... in dreams...

I actually don"t belive it - it just does an ordinary FW30, and you get results like it was a rinse... btw FW30 on indesits reminds quite a lot of a rinse cycle lol

I never actually noticed someone else had that machine!!! :D Thank you sooooo much for the link :D

Candy had oval tub machines in 70s, however this gorenje isn"t an oval tub machine. It"s just the door design, but drum is completely round and normal :)

I would love if I could take it, but I can"t, since it"s not mine, I just passed buy a neighborhood of my friend, and spotted it in a garage, so I had to take a pic of it :D

it is 1200rpm machine (only for cotton programmes) and I wouldn"t know how to do a rinse-only cycle :P By the way you said that 1000rpm isn"t enough for stuff like jeans.. I don"t know why jeans dedicated cycles on many machines are 800-900rpm max allowed.. maybe they think it is enough ;)

released in 1997

Gorenje Simple & Logical was first released on the market in 1997. The prototype shown in 1996 had the control panel on the front, but than when the production started they decided to make a change and put it on the top, so the machine would look a bit different from the others.

spin speed on jeans cycle

gorenje's profile picture
...well 900 / 10000 rpm for jeans I think its quite enough, first because I don't think a 1400 or 1200 rpm spin would do such a so big difference and than because I thing the jeans programs on today washers are made so to avoid those nasty stripes and wrinkles that may occur on jeans because of a too stron spin.

Window yippee!

It looks quite nice and futuristic... and it's got nothing to hide as the Moon... but a lovely porthole window :-)

@gorenje: I see the criteria behind drying jeans... however I can't really be bothered with that so when I've got a garment made of jeans in the load I just make sure I select a higher speed: my criteria is that as such item would typically be thicker and heavier than the rest, it'd take longer to dry hence me trying to get the machine to extract as much water as possible. I see the logic in possible streaking as you suggested though!

@nrones: 'whirlpolf' was talking about oval portholes rather than oval tubs... I personally don't remember standard Candys to have that shape porthole but I recall seing one version of the Aquamatic with a squat shape door.

The machine you showed doesn't have any rinse and spin cycles but perhaps these can be obtained by special sequences of button depressions... maybe you can try and download the manual for this washer straight from the company's site, you know the language and should be able to know what to look for ;-)

spin speed on jeans cycle

900/1000 rpm is not enough - especially in Britain's climate.

Spinning at 1400 or 1600rpm removes more water from the clothes, which is vital if you tumble dry.

Electricity prices are dear enough as it is.

How Long....

I think what's more important is how long the machine spins at 900/1000rpm for, plus its general ability to extract the water.

After using a 1400rpm spin Zanussi Essential, we recently moved house & as the new house had a 1000rpm Zanussi Washer Dryer already plumbed in, we've carried on using that. It actually appears to spin more water out of the washing than our newer 1400rpm machine. Ive noticed for one thing, it spins at 1000rpm for over 5 minutes, which undoubtedly helps, but it also drains water away much quicker than the lethargic pump fitted to the newer 1400rpm machine, which incidently only holds the top 1400rpm spin for about 2 mins before ending the program.

My point - it's not ALL about the speed - the length of spin & the ability of other components such as the drain pump also have a bearing on spin performance.

Spin Speeds

Liam is right about the final maximum spin speed. Its how long the machine holds the maximum spin speed for. The other day I tried my Miele Homecare on the 1400rpm, and it only spun for 1min, it seemed to spin at 1200rpm for quite some time, then spun at 1400rpm.

I do have 2 seperate spin dryers that spin at 2800rpm, and find this great when putting the clothes into the dryer, it saves time and money.
