tons and blends.
Cool

SPIN SPEED
To protect your fabrics, not all spin speeds are available
with every cycle. The indicator will not light if the setting is
not available with that cycle.
Extra High, High, Medium and Low spin speeds are
available for appropriate cycles. The spin speed and/or
duration of fi nal spin vary from model to model and 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 Rinse & Spin cycle to remove
