If you own a Hoover washing machine, you’re familiar with the fact that each programme and setting corresponds to a specific symbol on the appliance. You can use these symbols to select the best settings for a particular wash cycle. Every Hoover washing machine is slightly different, and different models will always have unique settings. However, several symbols are universal across all Hoover washing machines. This guide will discuss each of these universal symbols so you can make the most of your appliance and whizz through your laundry. Washing Machine Symbols H-WASH 500 is equipped with the new-generation Eco-Power Inverter Motor, the most long-lasting and powerful belt technology available on the market. Overview –The steam setting is denoted by a puff of steam and it blows steam intermittently into the washer drum during a cycle. The steam removes allergens and bacteria from your clothing.

Overview –The symbol you’ll need to find when washing silk and delicate garments is the image of a butterfly. This programme is ideal for washing delicate fabrics, such as silk and lace. Overview – The fabric softener symbol denotes a flower. It may or may not have the word ‘MAX’ written next to it, which indicates the maximum amount of fabric softener that you should use per cycle. It’s a standard feature that you’ll find on pretty much every washing machine that you use. Overview –The rinse programme washes your clothes with fresh, clean water. You’d use this setting after a full wash cycle to freshen up your clothes. It’s shown by a symbol of a washing basket with sprinkles of water above it. Overview –The cold wash symbol shows a snowflake. When this cycle is active, the appliance doesn’t heat up the water during a wash. The new H-WASH 500, thanks to its motor, is more sensitive: it adapts the washing action to the load ensuring best results and 60% more efficiency.Overview –The cotton symbol is shown by a ball of cotton, and it’s a commonly used programme that you’ll use to wash your cotton-based garments. Overview –The jeans wash programme is shown by a symbol of a pair of jeans. This setting is specifically designed for washing denim clothing. Best used for – Washing clothes that are prone to creasing and those that you want to iron before putting away in your drawers and wardrobe. Overview –Auto care is shown. By a symbol of a T-shirt and the words ‘Auto Care’ written next to it. This programme is highly versatile and enables you to wash a variety of load types. Next, to work out accurate running costs per year, I take the average number of UK cycles per year (274) and multiply this by three different load sizes – high (6kg), medium (4.5kg) and low (3.5kg) – to get a total amount of washing per year. In this instance, high users would have to make 164.4 full loads to complete all the washing, rather than the 274 UK average.

Overview –The fitness symbol is a T-shirt with a racquet. It’s designed specifically for washing sportswear or clothing made from synthetic fibers and runs for 29 minutes at 40 degrees Celsius. There are two main washing machine symbols that you need to know about with any shooter washer – detergent and fabric softener, and fabric softener. Detergent and Fabric Softener Hoover washing machines are a series of symbols associated with the wash cycles for special garments. Duvet Programme The test strip included (left to right) red wine, orange juice, ketchup, vegetable oil and gravy stains. On the 30ºC wash, the image below shows that stain removal was pretty good, although you can still see a clear outline of the red wine stain, plus a mark from the ketchup. It’s decent performance, but more expensive machines – such as the LG V9 F4V909BTS – clean better, albeit at a higher cost. The wash took just over two hours to complete. Switching to the 40ºC wash on the Eco 40-60 programme, I re-ran the test. This time, the washing machine used just 0.21kWh of power and only 37.1 litres of water, the trade-off being that this programme took more than three hours to run. This time, water retention was lower at 35.94%.Stain removal was better, too, with only the red wine and ketchup stains leaving behind a trace. You’d have to look closely to spot these stains on clothes, particularly on coloured items. As with all washing machines, the Hoover H-Wash 500 has to have its transport bolts removed. These comprise one plastic part with a rubber bung on the rear. My attempt to remove them resulted in the the rubber part coming away from the plastic part on two bolts, with the plastic bit dropping inside the machine. I had to then remove the thin rear panel to retrieve these items before I could turn on the appliance. Overview – The allergy care symbol shows a plus sign inside a circle with a baby’s bottle and dummy. It washes the load at 60 degrees Celsius for 79 minutes to completely rid your clothing of allergens.

Overview –The fresh care setting washes your clothing for 30 minutes at 30 degrees Celsius and uses steam. It’s shown by a symbol of a T-shirt with a puff of air to the side of it. The H-Wash 500 is very quiet, though. I measured it at 51.2dB when running the main part of the wash, increasing to 68.3dB on the spin cycle. At all points, the H-Wash 500 stayed still with little vibration. Should you buy it? Overview –The drain programme is shown by a symbol of a spiral with a downward arrow. This setting removes water from the drum of the washing machine during a wash cycle. Best used for –Removing allergenic particles, like pollen, dust, and pet fur, and bacterial particles from your garments. The Active Balance Technology provides the best rinsing results reducing washing time and vibrations, thanks to its spinning optimization.Hoover’s app can still be useful. It provides access to a wider range of programmes, including special cycles designed for cleaning specific items: diving suits, face masks and bloodstains are just some that jump out. Plus, each programme is described in detail, which makes it a bit easier to understand. Available for a great price when you take into account the features on offer, the Hoover H-Wash 500 HWB 410AMC/1-80 is a top mid-range washing machine. Spend more on the likes of the Samsung WW9800T and you’ll get faster wash cycles and better stain removal at lower temperatures. However, you’ll spend a lot more for the privilege. Overview –The soft care symbol shows a butterfly with a box in its centre. It’s suitable for washing delicate garments and washes at 20 degrees Celsius for 59 minutes. H-WASH 500 is featured by an advanced algorithm that calculates and auto-sets the most suitable programme adapting detergent, water and time according to fibers and load, guaranteeing an improved efficiency with no wastes.

For the most part, you’ll operate the Hoover H-Wash 500 HWB via the controls on the front of the machine. First, there’s the control dial that lets you select the wash programme; you’ll need to refer to the manual to find the right wash for each load. There are plenty of options to choose from, however, including modes for whites, wool, fitness gear and allergy care. Overview –If you spot a symbol that shows a ball of wool on your washer (if it’s not worn away yet), this is the setting that you’ll use to wash woollen laundry. The H-WASH 500 is one of the most popular Hoover washer models, and it has a variety of special settings. All in One 59′ There are programme symbols on the front of every model of Hoover washing machine. These symbols enable you to identify which washing programme you’re using and adjust the settings according to your needs. Below are some of the standard programme symbols that you’ll find on a Hoover washer. CottonBest used for –Rinsing heavily soiled clothing and bedding before a full cycle or rinsing your garments.
