Cycle Selection
For best results, follow the fabric care label directions
on items to be washed.
Prewash
Cycle
The Prewash cycle can be used to help remove
protein-based stains such as milk, grass or blood and
to help loosen soils before washing. During Prewash,
the wash will tumble for 6 minutes, drain, spin and
shut off. Use the amount of detergent and other
laundry products recommended for a normal wash
cycle.
The Prewash water temperature is the same as
the wash water temperature selected. To avoid
setting protein stains, select cold water.
This cycle should always be followed by a
complete wash cycle using the recommended
amount of detergent.
Regular
Cycle
Up to 19 minutes of reversing tumble action for most
fabrics. A spray rinse, three rinses, three spins, a
pause and a brief tumble complete the cycle.
Heavy Wash provides up to 19 minutes of
reversing tumble action for heavily soiled fabrics.
Wash provides up to 13 minutes of reversing
tumble action for normally soiled fabrics.

Note:
There is no need to select a water level
because the washer automatically adjusts the
water level to the type and size of wash load.
WASH/RINSE TEMPERA TURE- This determines water
temperatures for washing and rinsing. For example,
the Warm/Cold setting provides a warm water wash
and a cold water final rinse.
