Lid Locked
To allow for higher spin speeds, the lid will lock and the
Lid Locked light will turn on. When this light is lit, the lid is
locked and cannot be opened. When this light is blinking,
the washer is paused. When this light is off, the lid can be
opened. After a cycle is started, the lid locks, unlocks, and
locks again. If you need to open the lid to add a garment
after this point, you must press START/PAUSE/UNLOCK
and wait for the lid to unlock. The lid will only unlock after
washer movement has stopped. Depending on when in
the cycle you try to pause, it may take several seconds to
several minutes for the lid to unlock.
This washer will perform a series of spins to check for load
balance. When a load is started, it may take 2–3 minutes
before water begins to enter the basket. During this time,
a series of clicks and a whirring noise signal that sensing
technology is determining if there is an off-balance load.
This delay in ll could take 2–3 minutes.
At different stages of the wash cycle, you may hear
sounds and pauses that are different from those of your
and hum at the beginning of the cycle as the lid lock goes
through a self-test. There will be different kinds of hum-
ming and whirring sounds as the agitator tests for load
balance or moves the load. And, sometimes, you may
hear nothing at all as the washer allows time for clothes to
Spray Rinse
Select cycles default to a spray rinse. During these cycles,
you will hear water enter the washer as the tub spins,
allowing the rinse water to penetrate clothes. Check the
"Cycle Guide" for details.
