Spin Speed

Max (on select models), high, medium
and low (on some models) spin speeds
are available for each cycle. The spin
speed and/or duration of final spin vary
from model to model and cycle to cycle.
Increasing the spin speed will extract more
water, decrease drying time and conserve
energy. Decreasing the spin speed will
reduce wrinkling.
Select low spin speed (on some models) to
gently spin items that should be line dried.
Use no spin to omit the final spin at the
end of the cycle. The load will be very wet.
Remove items from the wash drum to drip
dry or select a spin only cycle to remove
excess water at a more convenient time.

Cycle Options

The default options for each cycle will
automatically be chosen when a cycle is
selected. To protect fabrics, not all options
are available for all cycles. If an option is
not available for a cycle, the indicator will
not light.

Selecting Options

Press the option button to scroll though
the options until the indicator light for the
desired option flashes, then press select.
The indicator light will illuminate when
the option has been selected. Follow the
same steps to deselect an option. The
indicator light will turn off when the option
is deselected.
If changes to the settings or options are
attempted after the cycle starts, you will
hear several beeps when the buttons are
pressed. To change the settings or op-
tions, press start/pause, make the new
selections and press start/pause again.
All settings or options selected for the
cycle, except sanitize (on select models),
perfect steam
(on select models),
and stain treatment options, will be
remembered and recalled each time that
cycle is selected in the future. To return to
factory settings, press and hold soil and
options buttons at the same time and
hold for 3 seconds until the confirmation
signal sounds. To prevent unintentional
