MORE WATER WHEN YOU WANT IT

MORE WATER WHEN YOU WANT IT

Auto Sensing & Deep Water Wash

  • The washer has been designed and optimized to provide a thorough cleaning using less water to conserve energy and resources. The washer will automatically adjust the water level to the optimal amount for a High Efficiency wash of the detected load size.
  • Touch "DEEP WATER" to add more water to the wash load.
  • There are four levels of deep water "Auto", "Medium", "High", "Max Fill".
  • Not all levels are available on all cycles.
  • As the washer dampens and moves the load, the level of the items will settle in the basket. This is normal, and does not indicate that more items should be added.


You will not see a full basket of water as with older, less efficient washing machines. It is normal for some of the load to be above the water line.

  • Load & Go™ feature will default On for each cycle unless disabled.
  • Touch LOAD & GO button to view detergent dispensing options.
  • Hold LOAD & GO button on the control panel to choose a detergent concentration between 2X and 10X. Hold for 3 seconds.
