Scope and object
This clause of Part 1 is applicable except as follows:
These particular requirements apply to single unit electric washing machines, the washing and spinning function of combined appliances for household and similar use, and to spin extractors.
Limitations for the use of this test code are given in 1.1.1 of IEC 60704-1.
NOTE For drying function, see IEC 60704-2-6.
Types of noise
ISO 3743-1, ISO 3743-2 and ISO 3744 can be used for measuring noise emitted by washing machines and spin extractors.
Size of the source
The method specified in ISO 3744 is applicable to noise sources of any size. When applying ISO 3743-1 and ISO 3743-2, care should be taken that the maximum size of the washing machine or spin extractor under test fulfils the requirements specified in 1.3 of ISO 3743-1 and ISO 3743-2.
Requirements for the declaration of noise emission values are not within the scope of this standard.
NOTE 3 For determining and verifying noise emission values declared in product specifications, see IEC 60704-3.
