Custom Care Wash/Spin Speeds
The agitator moves clothes around for a cleaner wash; the basket spins later in the cycle to release
water from the load. The Wash/Spin Speed dial sets the speed of both the agitator and the basket.
With Normal wash speed, the agitator will move at a high speed for the first few minutes, then it
steps down to a moderate speed. This reduces the wear on your clothing. Use for cottons, denims
and play clothes.
With Gentle wash speed, the agitator moves slower. Use for delicate and knit items.
The Fast spin speed is for durable items.
The Slow spin speed is for delicate items like sweaters and lingerie. When using Slow spin speed,
clothes will be less dry than when using Fast spin speed.
The Handwash speed is for items labeled handwashable.
