Press the START/Pause/Unlock button to start the wash
cycle. When the cycle has finished, the DONE
indicator will light. Promptly remove garments after cycle
has completed to avoid odor, reduce wrinkling, and rusting
of metal hooks, zippers, and snaps.
IMPORTANT: After the washer basket fills to the selected
water level, the lid must be closed before the wash cycle
can start. If filling stops with the lid open, close the lid and
press START button.

If you need to open the lid to add 1 or 2 missed garments:
Press START/Pause/Unlock; the lid will unlock once the
washer movement has stopped. This may take several
minutes if the load was spinning at high speed. Then close
lid and press START/Pause/Unlock again to restart the cycle.
If lid is left open for more than 10 minutes, the water will
pump out automatically.
