Spin speed refers to how many times your washing machine’s drum spins round in a minute.
It’s measured in revolutions per minute (rpm) - so a setting of 1200rpm means the drum will spin all the way round 1200 times every minute.
Generally, a higher spin speed is used to remove water at the end of a cycle.
Most of the time, you don’t need to worry about spin speed. Your washing machine will automatically set it and adjust it depending what’s needed.
However, occasionally you might want to adjust it or set a maximum spin speed to protect delicate clothes.

Most of the time, it’s best to just choose the most appropriate wash setting for your load and let the washer sort it out.
