Understanding Washer Cycles

When the Cycle Control knob is set to a number and pulled out,
the washer fills (to the selected load size) before agitation and
timing start. The washer begins agitating immediately after filling;
agitation occurs with the washer lid up or down.
During agitation, the agitator creates a continuous rollover action
(on some models) that provides a thorough cleaning of the wash
After agitation starts, the Cycle Control knob turns clockwise until
it points to an OFF area and the cycle ends.
NOTE: The washer pauses briefly throughout each cycle. These
pauses are normal for washer operation.

Normal Washer Sounds

Your new washer may make sounds your old one didn't. Because
the sounds might be unfamiliar, you may be concerned about
them. These sounds are normal.
During washing
When you select a small load size setting, your washer has a
lower water level. This can cause a clicking sound from the upper
part of the agitator.
During drain
If water is drained quickly from your washer (depending on your
installation), you may hear air being pulled through the pump
during the end of draining.
After drain and before spin
When the cycle changes from draining to spinning, you may hear
gears engaging.
