instructions on items to be
Appropriate wash temperature, spin speeds, soil level and
options will be displayed for each cycle. The settings can
be changed before the cycle is started. Make modifications
according to fiber content, colorfastness and soil level. If
changes are attempted after the cycle starts a signal will beep
and " Not possible " will be displayed.
To change settings after the cycle starts, press Pause, adjust
the setting and press Start to resume the cycle.
Wash Water Temperature
To change the preset temperature, press the temperature
icon to scroll to the desired setting. A cold water rinse saves
energy and reduces wrinkling.
To protect your fabrics, not all temperatures are available
with every cycle. The indicator will not light if the setting is not
available with that cycle.
Wash water temperatures are automatically regulated to
maximize detergent effectiveness and improve washing
performance. The water heater setting and its distance from
the washer, water usage in other parts of the home, and
seasonally low ground water temperature in some geographic
areas can affect water temperature.
This setting sanitizes heavily soiled colorfast fabrics such as
towels, bedding, and children's clothing by killing 99.9% of
bacteria using wash water heated with a boost heater. Cold
water is used to cool and rinse the load.
Only sanitizing cycles have been designed to meet the
requirements of NSF P172 protocol for sanitization efficacy.

Spin Speed
Max, high, medium and low spin speeds are available for
each cycle. The spin speed and/or duration of final spin vary
from model to model and cycle to 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
Use no spin to omit all intermediate spinning phases and
the final 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 excess water at a more
convenient time.
Soil Level
Adjust the wash time based on the soil level of each load.
Extra heavy, heavy, medium, light, and extra light soil
levels are available.
Cycle Options
To add options, press the corresponding option's icon to
illuminate the selection desired. To delete options, press
the option's icon again and the indicator light will turn off.
Not all options are available on every model. To protect your
fabrics, not all options are available with every cycle. If an
option is not appropriate for the cycle, the indicator will not
light. Occasionally, a setting and option in the same cycle will
conflict with each other, like no spin (or low spin) and eco
friendly. When this happens, the eco friendly option will
override any incompatible selections.
To change the options once the cycle has begun, press
the Pause button, make the new selection and press Start
Select this option to add a short initial wash period to a
cycle. Heavily soiled and stained loads will prewash for
approximately 15-20 minutes. The water will drain and the
load will automatically advance to the regular wash cycle.
fresh rinse
Use this option when additional rinsing is desired to remove
excess dirt and detergent. It is recommended for heavily
soiled loads or if household members have sensitive skin.
eco friendly
The eco friendly option reduces the amount of hot water
usage and total cycle duration to to save energy. See Washer
Settings Chart for compatible cycles.
