of fabrics.
Numbers on the dial in each cycle are

fills before agitation and timing starts.
After agitation starts, the knob turns
clockwise until it points to OFF and the
cycle ends.
The washer will pause briefly
throughout each cycle. These pauses
are normal. They allow for the reversing
of the motor, normal washer operation
and the cool-down portion of the
PRESS Cycle.
NOTE: You may hear the sound of
water sprayrng during the spin parts of
some cycles. In some cycles, water is
sprayed on the spinning load to help
wrth the rinsing.
Gentle Wash System
For better fabric care in the REGULAR
PRESS Cycles, the
agitation speed is reduced during the
last few minutes of wash agitation time.
