CONTROL PANEL AND FEATURES

LOAD SIZE 

Select the setting most suitable for your load. Small  

will add a low amount of water for smaller loads and Ex 

Large will add the most amount of water for large or bulky 

loads. Items need to move freely. Tightly packing can lead to 

poor cleaning performance and may increase wrinkling and 

tangling.

WASH TEMP

Wash Temp 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.  
 •  On some models and cycles, warm and hot water may  

be cooler than your previous washer.

•   Even in a cold and cool water wash, some warm water 

may be added to the washer to maintain a minimum  

temperature.   

WASH CYCLE KNOB

Use the Wash Cycle knob to select cycles on your washer. 

Knob does not advance during the progress of the cycle, 

see cycle status lights for each stage of the process. See 

“Cycle Guide” for detailed descriptions of cycles.

RINSE OPTIONS

The following options may be added to most cycle.  

See “Cycle Guide” for additional details. 

1 RINSE

This option is used to limit a cycle to one rinse.
2 RINSES

This option can be used to automatically add a  

second rinse to most cycles.
1 RINSE with SOFTENER

This option must be selected if using fabric softener 

during a cycle. It ensures that fabric softener is added

START/PAUSE BUTTON

Press to start the selected cycle; press again to pause the 

cycle and unlock the lid. Press and hold for 3 seconds  

to cancel a cycle.
NOTE: If the washer is spinning, it may take several  

minutes to unlock the lid. 

CYCLE STATUS LIGHTS INDICATOR

The Cycle Status Lights show the progress of a cycle.  

At each stage of the process, you may notice sounds or 

pauses that are different from traditional washers.
 FILL
  
When the START/Pause button is pressed, the washer will 

fill to the selected water level. If the lid is closed when the 

washer is done filling the lid will lock and the washer will 

begin operation.

  If the lid is open when the water stops entering the 

washer, the cycle will not begin until the lid has been 

closed and the START/Pause button is pressed. If the 

cycle has not been started within 10 minutes of the water 

filling the washer, the washer will pump out the water.

 NOTE: 

Avoid opening lid during sensing phase. The 

sensing process will start over when the washer is 

restarted. The FILL light may also come on during the 

Soak and Wash portions of the cycle. This is normal. To 

restart the washer after the lid has been opened press 

START. 

 

WASH 

  You will hear the agitator moving the load. The motor 

sounds may change at different stages in the cycle.  

The wash time is determined by the selected soil level. 

 RINSE 

You will hear sounds similar to the wash cycle as the 

washer rinses and moves the load. You may hear the 

motor turning on briefly (short hum) to move the basket 

while filling. Fabric softener will be added if the 1 Rinse 

with Softener or 2 Rinses with Softener option was 

selected.
Some cycles use spray rinsing. After draining and  

spinning out wash water, the washer will continue to  

spin and spray in rinse water for the entire rinse time.
