Abstract (en)

[origin: EP0687761A1] A multiprogram washing machine is described, comprising an electromechanical programmer (T, MT, A1-A12, B1-B12, C1-C12, D1-D12) for selecting a plurality of washing programs and an electronic microcontroller (ME,MP) for controlling, during said programs, the operation of a motor (M) being provided in said machine, wherein the programmer delivers control codes to said microcontroller; the main characteristics of the described washing machine consists in that at least a control element (A) is provided for modifying the codes sent from the electromechanical programmer (T, MT, A1-A12, B1-B12, C1-C12, D1-D12) to the electronic microcontroller (ME,MP), in order to extend the number of washing programs available in the machine. <IMAGE>
