I expected functions on this machine as on every normal European washer. Had been very disappointed and faced with no separate-indepentent rinse and separate spin cycle. I like to wash my socks under a faucet and just spin them for few turns. Not with this machine. I would have to go through the whole wash cycle. So now I have to use the old method and wrap them in towels and then dry the towels! What a waste of energy! Same with cleaning, dusting rags; I would prefer to rinse them and reuse them until there would be enough for the whole load. Now I have to rinse them in a bucket and then wring out by hands.
