4. Turn on the washer by selecting POWER. Select one of the
cycles by turning the cycle selector. The indicator light for the
selected cycle will illuminate. When you are selecting a wash
cycle, the preset modifiers (Soil Level, Wash Temp, and Spin
Speed) for the cycle will illuminate. Selectable option settings
will glow amber. If an option or modifier is unavailable with
the selected cycle, the light will not illuminate. The preset
settings provide the recommended
fabric care for the
selected cycle. The display shows the estimated time
remaining. See "Cycles."

with all cycles. See "Options."
6. Select the desired MODIFIERS. Not all Modifiers are available
with all Cycles and Options. See "Modifiers."

when you are washing items that should be removed from the
washer as soon as it stops. Select LOUD, SOFT, or OFR
8. To begin the wash cycle immediately
Select and hold START (for approximately
1 second).
If you do not select START within 5 minutes of choosing
a cycle, the washer automatically
shuts off.
When the wash cycle is complete, the CLOTHES CLEAN
status light glows, the door unlocks, and the wash load
can be removed from the washer. The washer powers
down automatically
60 minutes after the cycle is
complete and the CLOTHES CLEAN light goes off.
9. To begin the wash cycle later
Select Delay Start until the desired delay time (in hours)
shows in the Estimated Time Remaining display. Select
START. The countdown to the wash cycle will show in the
display window, and the button indicator will blink until the
cycle begins.
IMPORTANT: When delaying a cycle, use only powdered
detergents in the main wash compartment
since liquid
detergents may seep out of the compartment
during Delay
Start, before the wash cycle begins.
Your new washer has a dispenser drawer with four separate
for your laundry products--one
is for high
efficiency detergent, one is for liquid chlorine bleach, one is for
liquid fabric softener, and one is for oxygen based stain fighters
or color-safe bleach. Laundry products are diluted and dispensed
at the proper time during the wash cycle, making it
unnecessary for you to return to the washer during the cycle to
add them.
It is normal for small amounts of water to remain in the
dispensers when the wash cycle is complete.
Do not put laundry products directly into the wash tub. Always
use the proper dispensers when adding laundry products.
Choosing the Right Detergent
Use only High Efficiency detergents. The package for this type
of detergent will be marked "HE" or "High Efficiency." This wash
system, along with less water, will create too much sudsing with
a regular non-HE detergent. Using regular detergent will likely
result in washer errors, longer cycle times, and reduced rinsing
It may also result in component
failures and
noticeable mold or mildew. HE detergents are made to produce
the right amount of suds for the best performance.
Follow the
instructions to determine the amount of detergent
to use.
Use only "HE" High Efficiency detergent.
To fill dispenser compartments
1. Pull out the dispenser drawer.
2. Add the desired laundry product to the proper compartment.
3. Push in the dispenser drawer slowly and completely (to avoid
a spill).
