Use this option for heavily soiled loads that need improved stain
treatment. When Stain Treat is selected, the water temperature of
the selected wash cycle is automatically set to warm. The water
will then be heated to a hot water temperature to aid in stain
removal. This option will provide optimal removal of organic
stains such as blood.
If Stain Treat is selected with the Sanitary cycle, the water will
be heated to a very hot temperature.
The Stain Treat and Enegy Saver options cannot be selected
in the same cycle.
A second rinse can be used to aid in the removal of detergent or
bleach residue from garments. This option provides an additional
rinse with the same water temperature as the Normal rinse.
This signal is helpful when you are removing items from the

Warm rinses leave the loads dryer than cold rinses. Warm rinses
increase wrinkling. In cold climates, a warm rinse makes the load
more comfortable to handle. Cold rinses save energy.
