Wash Cycles
Wash Cycle Selections
Cycle times are approximate and will vary with
the options selected. Hot water is neces-
sary to activate the detergent and melt fatty
food soils. An automatic sensor will check the
incoming water temperature. If it is not at the
appropriate temperature the timer will delay
the cycle to allow automatic water heating
during the main wash. When the High Temp
wash is selected an even higher temperature
will be assured to handle heavier soil loads.
Wash Cycles
