To change the preset cycle settings

setting glows green.
Express
Wash
Use this cycle to wash small loads of 2-3 lightly soiled garments
that are needed in a hurry. This cycle combines fast-speed
tumbling, a shortened wash time, and extra high speed spin to
shorten drying time. Large wash loads will result in the machine
increasing the wash time.
Handwash/Wool
Use this cycle to clean washable woolen and special care
garments. (Check label instructions
to make sure that the
garment is washable.) Similar to the way garments are hand
washed in a sink, the wash action of this cycle combines periods
of extra low tumbling speeds and soaking. Low spin speeds
minimize wrinkling.
Use mesh garment bags to wash undergarments
such as
underwire bras, items with strings, and small items such as
infant socks.
Powdered detergents may not dissolve well in a slow-speed
cycle. For best results, use liquid detergent for slow-speed
cycles.
Silk/Ultra Delicate
Use this cycle to clean washable silk and ultra delicate garments.
(Check label instructions to make sure that garment is washable.)
This cycle gently tumbles and drains without spinning to gently
clean garments and minimize wrinkling. Garments will contain a
higher amount of water at the end of this cycle, because there is
no spinning action.
Use mesh garment bags as necessary.
Powdered detergents may not dissolve well in a slow-speed
cycle. For best results, use liquid detergent for slow-speed
cycles.
Rinse & Spin
Use this cycle to rinse, drain, and spin your wash load. This cycle
combines fast-speed tumbling and high-speed spin. If desired,
you can reduce the spin speed by selecting the speed you want
from the SPIN SPEED modifier.
Rinse & Spin is useful for
Loads that need rinsing only.
Adding fabric softener to a load using the fabric softener
dispenser.
