Hi there,

Hopefully I can help.

Firstly, congratulations - the Hoover Logic/Electron range are some of the best, and a darn sight better than 80% of the modern market.

They use the old timer-style controls, which means the programs will be set our in order around the program selector. The rule with these style machines it that program 1 (or A if the machine has letters instead of numbers), is usually the hottest, longest wash and the programs follow on as below:

1/A - Whites 90/95 with pre-wash

2/B - Whites 90/95

3/C - Fast Coloureds 60

4/D - Non Fast Coloureds 40

5/E - rinses

6/F - Spin

As this is an older machine, it won't have a 30 degree cycle, but it will do a full load on Non Fast Coloureds 40 or 60 in an hour or under. You should be fine using these 2 cycles (40 for darks and coloureds and 60 for whites and bedsheets) for pretty much everything.

Hope this helps

The 850WD is a European machine. It's actually made by Merloni-Servis who also make Diplomat integrated machines. The programming will be very similar, if not the same, and the controls to operate the dryer function should be the same. Perhaps a Diplomat manual would also be relevant?

The only example I can find of this machine is Finnish. Looking at the details on the machine, I can decifer the following:

valkopesu means "white washing" so:

A - Cottons 90 bio(?) + prewash
B - Cottons 90 + prewash
C - Cottons 90
D - Cottons 60
E - Cottons 40
F- huuhtelut - Rinses
G - erikoiskasittely - Special treatment. I imagine this is the conditioner rinse or bleaching stage, if needed
H - pitka linkous - Long spin

tekokuitu is "man-made fibre" in Finish, so perhaps those are synthetics/minimum iron cycles.

Hienopsu means "delicates", so these are the delicates cycles

J is cottons 60 express (quick)
N is synthetics rinse
P is synthetics special treatment

Q is short spin

When using the cycles, make sure that the temperature dial and the program dial match. For example, cottons 60 should be set to program D with 60 selected on the temp dial.

Sorry, but I'm not sure how to operate the dryer. I imagine you just ensure that the program dial is on the dot icon (for off/stop), set the drying timer and turn the machine on.
