Laundry room ettiquette - help!

We have an apartment in a building (5 apartments) with 1 communal washing machine and dryer. There are no allocated days. This afternoon we badly needed to do laundry (as it not allowed on a Sunday). There was clean but wet washing in the washing machine for an hour. So we removed it and put it in the dryer (but didn't turn it on in case some items were delicate).

When we went back there was a VERY angry note on the machine telling us that laundry was "PRIVATE!!" and should not be removed.

Our question - have we broken a Swiss rule?! As far as my experience in North America goes this would be very acceptable laundry room etiquette....
