Too many choices for laundry?

Several months ago I featured a post about a washing machine with just two options for laundry load size.  Short of a sink filled with soapy water, or washing your clothes in a river, that’s about as simple as washing machines get.

I recently encountered a machine that could be the most complicated washing machine one can get (at least for home laundry use).

To save you the bother of reading all that, here are some summary stats. We have:

WASH CYCLES:

14 Wash Cycle options

MODIFIERS:

4 Soil Levels

4 Spin Speeds

5 Wash-Rinse Temps

OPTIONS:

2 options for Deep Clean

2 options for Extra Rinse

2 options for Pre Soak

3 options for End of Cycle Signal

That comes out to over 21,000 different ways to run this washing machine!
