temperature range from low to high settings may be
different depending on cycle selected. If an unavailable
temperature setting is selected by the user, the nearest
available temperature will be substituted.
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 cold. Use this setting for lightly soiled
non-colorfast items, knits, delicates, and hand washables.

Out of Balance Protection
Your model is equipped with special sensors and
software to prevent machine damage caused by
extreme cases of unbalanced loads at high spin speeds.
In the event that a load is lopsided and weight is
not evenly enough distributed before ﬁ nal spin, the
machine will pause the spinning phase and notify you
of an out of balance situation.
What does the washer do? The washer will stop
spinning, the status indicator lights will blink and an
alarm will beep 3 times quickly every 30 seconds until
the condition is resolved.
What do you do? Lift the washer lid, redistribute the
unbalanced load, close the lid and press START to
resume the ﬁ nal spin of the current cycle.
