(2) Mild rotation:- One bar under the wash tub symbolises that the machine drum rotates for 8 seconds and stops for 7 seconds.

The options are: 5M @ 50°C, 4M @ 40°C and 3M@ 30°C
(3) Gentle rotation:- Two bars under the wash tub symbolises that the machine drum rotates for 3 seconds and stops for 12 seconds.
