Crikey - looks like a complicated washing machine. If in doubt, the one that looks a bit like a triangle at 10 o'clock is for synthetics. Nothing will be damaged if you mostly use that one.

Maybe the owner let the instructions somewhere. You can ask him/her, it could save you some time ;)

I've started washing my clothes before reading your response ,i'm washing white clothes ,I was watching the washing machine all day (because every time I go ,I found out that someone is already using it ,maybe because it's sunday ) ,so most of them chose the Icon that is displayed in the picture ,I did the same now ... we'll see what happens

It should be ok - the temperature is the only thing you need to be really careful with - if in doubt choose lower rather than higher.

If not, they're almost certainly available online ;-)

Indeed lol :P

The icon that looks like a butterfly - for washing silk probably. The next one on the right - for wool probably. The flower - maybe for colours. But I'm just guessing :P

You need instructions from the manufacturer - check the type of this washing machine and google it, manufacturers of all kinds of electronical stuff often have the instructions on their site in pdf files. Or just ask someone who knows how to use it :P

Yes!

I would've gone for that one. On my washing machine most of the commonly used programs are clockwise from top.
Where the icons start on orange section, I think you have wool/hand hot temp, not sure about butterfly, rinse or soak, drain, spin.
Iron pics are probably crease resistant cycle.
Sorry, I might be female, but it's a complicated washing machine!

here's the explanation

From top on the left:

the clock - (Programy Time Manager) - Time Manager programmes
weird icon with plus - (Bawełniane + pranie wstępne) - cotton + initial washing
flower - (Delikatne) - delicate
butterfly - (Jedwabne) - silk
icon with arrow - (Odpompowanie) - pomping out
star - (Programy specjalne) - special programmes

From top on the right:

weird icon - (Bawełniane) - cotton
triangle - (Syntetyczne) - synthetics
two icons - (Wełniane/pranie ręczne) - wool/hand washing
square icon - (Płukanie) - rinsing
spiral - (Wirowanie) - spining (whirling?)
weird icon plus three circles - (Energooszczędne-ekonomiczne) energy saving washing

The second part - on the left:
Koc = blanket
Waves - (Programy suszenia) - drying programmes

On the right:
£atwe prasowanie = easy ironing

I had it solved people no worries ,and no polish manual is fine ,I can translate it ... thank you . .my problem is solved

ok so ,there's this "dry " option that I used ,I just want to make sure if it's safe and won't cause color to fade away .it's called Suche do szafy or cupboard dry (according to google translator )

It should be OK. Don't put too much in the machine though - a half full load at the most.

Remember, with automatic washing machines, they may well have all the bells and whistles, but you only really use 10% at most of all those settings. I only use 2 on mine. The rest are largely for show.

yeah ,sometimes it's even less ,since it's only a 1 person's laundry .just wanted to make sure that "cupboard dry" don't ruin clothes or make the colors fade away .

If sb looked for the manual - there are two versions (probably for two versions of machine):
