Washing machine question

I have a V Zug Adora L machine, it's relatively new. The last load of laundry I did I noticed that the door hadn't automatically opened after the cycle had finished like it usually does, I assumed it had just got stuck (it opened when I pressed the door open button).

This morning I closed the door on a load and the digital display message read "H 60".

First I checked the manual online but the H60 message was not listed in the troubleshooting, so I phoned V Zug and they told me they did not know what the message meant. They have advised me to contact the management of the apartment.

I'd like to know if anyone knows what the message means before I do this. There appears to be nothing wrong with the machine, I have maintained it properly and it is new, so my instinct tells me it's just something and nothing. But I don't want to just go and ignore it in case I am wrong.

Any ideas??

Edit, have not tried to start the cycle just to see if it works, I wanted to know what H60 meant first

I found this pdf here for you. H60 means: too much washing runs with low temperature, which might leave hygiene problems in the long run. Please use higher temperature next time.

Hi, we have a V Zug unimatic S not quite the same, but I had a quick look in our handbook and for ours H 60 is a recommendation to do a Hygiene cycle.
They suggest to do the next wash at at least 60°C or take out the to be washed clothes and press the H button, on ours it's on the top left hand corner, it's quite big and drawn as a square with a circle of little circles around the H, hope that description means something.
It only takes 23 minutes to do its thing. It's quite good to do it from time to time as it heats up a small amount of water to 80°C and gives it a good steaming inside to get rid of any muck and grime in there. I am sure that unless an alarm goes off you will be perfectly okay to keep using it. Good luck.

Re: Washing machine question

Wonderful you guys, thankyou so much!

This makes sense as I nearly always wash at 30 or 40. Had it in my head that I'm being eco

I'm not critising you in the least here Pixie B....

This is exactly how people get suckered into thinking they are saving money/planet and being ecological when in fact it does as much harm as you now should probably run the machime empty at 90°C or whatever to kill all the bugs or whatever.

I'm a firm believer in ecology and recycling, etc, BUT you need to think for yourself as some things are just not what they proclaim to be.

Washing empty at 90 degrees once every 6 months is not bad for the environment and it cleans your machine. NO-ONE should ever need to wash at 60 degrees since modern washing detergents will not even clean well above 40 degrees (the enzymes stop working above 40 degrees).

So, inform yourself before your post nonsense, and please start washing at 30 or 40 degrees, because there is only one planet earth.

Really? I have a dust mite allergy and in all the articles and brochures that I've read it's written that bed linen should be washed at 60 degrees or higher.

So you're implying that all the detergent manufacturers who label their products for up to 60 or even 95 degrees are actually misleading us?
Don't think so.
