 SPIN

The washer spins the load at increasing speeds for  

proper water removal, based on the selected cycle  

and spin speed. 

 DONE

Once the cycle is complete, this light will come on.  

Remove the load promptly for best results. 

  LID LOCKED 

 To allow for higher spin speeds, the 

lid will lock and the Lid Locked light 

will turn on. When this light is lit, the 

lid is locked and cannot be opened. 

When this light is blinking, the washer 

is paused. When this light is off, the lid 

can be opened. 
If you need to open the lid, press  

START/Pause. The lid will unlock once  

the washer movement has stopped.  

This may take several minutes if the  

load was spinning at high speed.  

Press START/Pause again to resume  

the cycle.
