What model is the machine?

I've had an older LG washing machine (WM12220FD) and currently have the new LG steam 9kg (F1479FDS5)

Hi Heidi

Im not sure about more recent models but my Mums 2005 LG machine has a rinse and spin cycle on the dial which does a low level cottons rinse and upto 1200rpm spin cycle, If one selects "Medic Rinse" with this cycle it does a full 4 Rinses and spin cycle for cottons.

For more delicate than cotton cycles you have to select the programme for the fabric and select a cold wash and let the machine do its full thing.

I cant think why they would omit a single rinse and spin, best bet would be to select a spin cycle and see what Time comes up in the display, note down what it is, then select a cotton cycle and see if pressing any combinations of buttons reduces the time of the whole wash to say 5-6 minutes more than the spin cycle alone. Id be sure this was a rinse and spin then.

Failing that I reckon you would have to just select 30 minute Quickwash and select Cold as the temperature,

If it has a 15 minute quickwash perhaps they omitted the rinse and spin and this cycle could be used as so. On Mums machine the spin cycle selected automatically on synthetics or quickwash is a default 800rpm however by pressing the spin speed button one can then reselect 1200rpm if one needs a faster final speed,

Hope this helps,
