The lion's share of washing machines on the domestic market includes Russian designations. But more and more often imported cars of European assembly are brought to Russia, so there may be no transfer of regimes.
If you are the owner of an English, German or Italian washer, our tables with translations into Russian will help you quickly navigate the functionality of a foreign SMA.

Basic icons in various languages of the world
The first button in importanceThe typewriter is the start key. If “On / Off” is written on the russified control unit, then in the English version this is traditionally denoted as Start / Stop or On / Off;the Germans called this button Ein / Aus;Italians sign the Marchia / Arresto.
As for the spin speed adjustment, in the washers with the English-speaking panel this functionality is signed as RPM, with the German - U / min, with the Italian - Giri.
As well as in many domestic models, lists of functions can be divided into two categories - basic and those that are used less frequently:
- In the English version, these blocks will be signed as main and special.
- In German SMA, instead of main, the word Primar is indicated.
- In Italian-made typewriters, the main unit is named Base.
If the machine is equipped with an electronic control system and the choice of functions goes through the display, then to enter the list of main modes, you should select the Main Menu. If a remote control is attached to your typewriter, then look for a button on it.

Translation of washing modes and programs from Italian
The Italians turned out to be the most laconic - they provided not so many symbols on the control panel. However, you may encounter the following Italian words:
|Mode / Option / Function||Translated from Italian to Russian|
|forte lavaggio||Intensive cycle.|
|lavaggio rapido||Quick program.|
|lavaggio a mano||Manual( gentle) mode.|
|trattamenti||Rinse with the addition of rinse.|
|esclatione||Cancel spinning, without spinning.|
|facile stiratura( Stira meno)||The option of light ironing after washing.|
|ritardatore di partenza||Delay cycle stop.|
Caution! The icons drawn on the control panel will help you navigate - they are often intuitive and easy to remember.
If you can’t remember all the functions in English, German or Italian, but you often use different options, you can print any of these lists and paste them next to the typewriter or rename the buttons.
Or maybe the transfer of functions on the washing machine will push you to a new hobby - learning foreign languages.
