Electric clothes washer-dryers for household use - Methods for measuring the performance

This International Standard specifies the test methods for the testing of household combined
washer-dryers in their function to wash and dry textiles. This International Standard does not
apply for testing individual washing or drying functions.
The object is to state and define the principal performance characteristics of household
electric washer-dryers of interest to users and to describe standard methods for measuring
these characteristics.
NOTE Washer-dryers for communal use in blocks of flats or in launderettes are also included within the scope of
this standard. It does not apply to washer-dryers for commercial laundries.

Lavantes-séchantes électriques à usage domestique - Méthodes de mesure de l’aptitude à la fonction

La CEI 62512:2012 fournit une méthode d'application générale et convenue permettant de soumettre à essai la fonction de lavage et de séchage des lavantes-séchantes. Bien que fondée sur la CEI 61121:2012 relative aux sèche-linge à tambour et sur la CEI 60456:2010 relative aux machines à laver le linge, la présente norme spécifie les conditions qu'il est nécessaire d'appliquer pour soumettre à essai la fonction combinée de lavage et de séchage. La présente norme spécifie les principaux éléments suivants: - la définition des charges à soumettre à essai au cours de cycles d'opération continus et interrompus; - la méthode d'essai des opérations automatiques et non automatiques des cycles de séchage; - le mode de traitement de la charge pour les cycles d'opération interrompus; - la correction à appliquer aux résultats d'essai des cycles d'opération continus et interrompus.

ELECTRIC CLOTHES WASHER-DRYERS FOR HOUSEHOLD USE –
METHODS FOR MEASURING THE PERFORMANCE
FOREWORD

1) The International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) is a worldwide organization for standardization comprising

all national electrotechnical committees (IEC National Committees). The object of IEC is to promote

international co-operation on all questions concerning standardization in the electrical and electronic fields. To

this end and in addition to other activities, IEC publishes International Standards, Technical Specifications,

Technical Reports, Publicly Available Specifications (PAS) and Guides (hereafter referred to as “IEC

Publication(s)”). Their preparation is entrusted to technical committees; any IEC National Committee interested

in the subject dealt with may participate in this preparatory work. International, governmental and non-

governmental organizations liaising with the IEC also participate in this preparation. IEC collaborates closely

with the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) in accordance with conditions determined by

agreement between the two organizations.

2) The formal decisions or agreements of IEC on technical matters express, as nearly as possible, an international

consensus of opinion on the relevant subjects since each technical committee has representation from all

interested IEC National Committees.

3) IEC Publications have the form of recommendations for international use and are accepted by IEC National

Committees in that sense. While all reasonable efforts are made to ensure that the technical content of IEC

Publications is accurate, IEC cannot be held responsible for the way in which they are used or for any

misinterpretation by any end user.

4) In order to promote international uniformity, IEC National Committees undertake to apply IEC Publications

transparently to the maximum extent possible in their national and regional publications. Any divergence

between any IEC Publication and the corresponding national or regional publication shall be clearly indicated in

the latter.

5) IEC itself does not provide any attestation of conformity. Independent certification bodies provide conformity

assessment services and, in some areas, access to IEC marks of conformity. IEC is not responsible for any

services carried out by independent certification bodies.

6) All users should ensure that they have the latest edition of this publication.

7) No liability shall attach to IEC or its directors, employees, servants or agents including individual experts and

members of its technical committees and IEC National Committees for any personal injury, property damage or

other damage of any nature whatsoever, whether direct or indirect, or for costs (including legal fees) and

expenses arising out of the publication, use of, or reliance upon, this IEC Publication or any other IEC

Publications.

8) Attention is drawn to the Normative references cited in this publication. Use of the referenced publications is

indispensable for the correct application of this publication.

9) Attention is drawn to the possibility that some of the elements of this IEC Publication may be the subject of

patent rights. IEC shall not be held responsible for identifying any or all such patent rights.

International standard IEC 62512 has been prepared by subcommittee 59D: Home laundry

appliances, of IEC Technical Committee 59: Performance of household and similar electrical

appliances.
The text of this standard is based on the following documents:
FDIS Report on voting
59D/403/FDIS 59D/407/RVD

Full information on the voting for the approval of this standard can be found in the report on

voting indicated in the above table.

the stability date indicated on the IEC web site under "http://webstore.iec.ch" in the data

related to the specific publication. At this date, the publication will be

INTRODUCTION

This first edition has been developed to provide a globally applicable and agreed method to

test the washing and drying function of washer-dryers.

Although this standard is based on IEC 61121:2012 on tumble dryers and IEC 60456:2010 on

clothes washers, it specifies the conditions needed to test the combined function of washing

and drying.
The main elements of this standard are:

– the definition of the loads to be tested in continuous and interrupted operation cycles;

– the method for testing automatic and not automatic operation of the drying cycles;

– the way to handle the load for interrupted operation cycles;

– the correction to be applied to test results for continuous and interrupted operation cycles.
