Use this cycle for lingerie and loosely knit items. Partway through
the cycle, the washer pauses and soaks the load for more gentle
care of lightly soiled delicate items. Wash combines slow speed
agitation for gentle soil removal and slow spin speeds to reduce
wrinkling.
Soak
The Soak cycle features 4 minutes of agitation followed by an
unlimited soak time to help remove heavy soils and stains that
need pretreatment.
You will need to reset the washer to a SPIN
setting to remove water.
The Soak cycle should be followed by the Heavy Duty or
Permanent Press or Prewash cycle with additional
detergent.
NOTE: Hot water is not recommended
for soaking. It may set
some stains.
Prewash
Use this cycle to get up to 4 minutes of agitation to help remove
heavy soils and stains that need pretreatment.
