rinse to most cycles.

during a cycle. It ensures that fabric softener is added

Not all cycles, options, and modifiers are available on all

WASH TEMP
Temperature Control senses and maintains uniform water
temperatures by regulating incoming hot and cold water.
Select a wash temperature based on the type of fabric
and soils being washed. For best results and following the
garment label instructions, use the warmest wash water
safe for your fabric.
• Warm and hot water may be cooler than what your
previous washer provided.
• Even in a Cool water wash, some warm water may
be added to the washer to maintain a minimum
temperature.

SOIL LEVEL
Soil level (wash time) is preset for each wash cycle.
For most loads, use the soil level that is preset with
the cycle you have chosen. For heavily soiled and sturdy
fabrics, press SOIL LEVEL to select more wash time,
if needed. For lightly soiled and delicate fabrics, press
SOIL LEVEL to select less wash time, if needed. Lower soil
level setting will help reduce tangling and wrinkling.
SPIN SPEED
This washer automatically selects the spin speed based
on the cycle selected. The preset speeds can be changed.
Not all spin speeds are available with all cycles.
• Faster spin speeds mean shorter dry times, but may
increase wrinkling in your load.
• Slower spin speeds mean less wrinkling, but will leave
your load more damp.
CYCLE STATUS LIGHTS INDICATOR
The Cycle Status Lights shows the progress of a cycle. At each
stage of the process, you may notice sounds or pauses that
are different from traditional washers.
SENSING
When the START/PAUSE/UNLOCK
LID button is pressed, the washer will
first perform a self-test on the lid lock
mechanism. You will hear a click, the
basket will make a slight turn, and the
lid will unlock briefly before locking
again.
Once the lid has locked the second
time, the washer will slowly spin the
dry load to estimate the load size, and begin adding
water. The washer will then move the load briefly, pause
to allow water to soak in to the load, and resume adding
water. This process may repeat until the correct amount
of water has been added for the load. You may also hear
water flowing through the dispenser, adding detergent to
the load.
NOTE: The sensing light may also come on during
the Wash portions of the cycle. This is normal.
