Cycle Settings

For best results
Follow the fabric care label
instructions on items
to be washed.
Appropriate wash temperature, spin speeds, soil level
and options will automatically be displayed for each
cycle. The settings can be changed before the cycle is
started. Make modifi cations according to fi ber content,
colorfastness and soil level. Modifi cations for each cycle
will be remembered and recalled each time that cycle is
selected in the future. If changes are attempted after the
cycle starts, the lights will blink, the signal will beep and
" Err " will be displayed.
To change settings after the cycle starts, press pause,
adjust the setting and press START to resume the cycle.
To change the preset temperature, press the temp
button to scroll to the desired setting. A cold water rinse
saves energy and reduces wrinkling.
To protect your fabrics, not all temperatures are available
with every cycle. The indicator will not light if the setting
is not available with that cycle.
Wash water temperatures are automatically regulated to
maximize detergent effectiveness and improve washing
performance. The water heater setting and its distance
from the washer, water usage in other parts of the home,
and seasonally low ground water temperature in some
geographic areas can affect water temperature.
Use this setting for heavily soiled white or colorfast
cottons and blends.
Use this setting for normally soiled white or colorfast
cottons or blends.
Use this setting for normally soiled sheets, casual items
and washable woolens.
Some warm water will automatically blend with cold tap
supply to achieve a precise cold. Use this setting for
lightly soiled non-colorfast items, knits, delicates, and
hand washables.
cold water clean
Wash and rinse temperatures are equivalent to
temperature of cold tap supply. Use this selection for
fabrics and colors that are prone to dye transfer. For
use with cold water
To return to factory
settings, press these
two buttons at the
same time and
hold until the signal
Max, high, medium and low spin speeds are available
for each cycle. The spin speed and/or duration of fi nal
spin vary from model to model and cycle to cycle.
Increasing the spin speed will extract more water,
decrease drying time and conserve energy. Decreasing
the spin speed will reduce wrinkling.
Select low spin speed to gently spin items that should
be line dried.
Use no spin to omit the fi nal spin at the end of the cycle.
The load will be very wet. Remove items from the wash
drum to drip dry or select a spin only or rinse & spin
cycle to remove excess water at a more convenient time.
Adjust the wash time based on the soil level of each load.
Heavy, normal, and light soil levels are available.

Cycle Options

To select an option, press options until the indicator
for the desired option fl ashes, then press select. If an
option is not available for a cycle, the indicator will not
light. Follow the same steps to delete an option. The
options selected for the cycle will be remembered and
recalled each time that cycle is selected in the future.
Occasionally, a setting and option in the same cycle will
confl ict with each other, like no spin (or low spin) and
energy saver. When this happens, the energy saver
option will override any incompatible selections.
To change the options once the cycle has begun, press
the pause button, make the new selection and press
start again.
A signal will sound at the end of the cycle if this option
is selected. The signal has an adjustable volume level
or can be turned off.
stain clean
Use the stain clean option to add a 5-minute soak in
the middle of the wash portion of the cycle.
energy saver
The energy saver option defaults to a cold temperature
setting (in most cycles) and also extracts more water to
reduce drying time.
fresh rinse
Use this option when additional rinsing is desired to
remove excess dirt and detergent. It is recommended
for heavily soiled loads or if household members have
sensitive skin.
