CONTROL PANEL AND FEATURES 1 2 3 5 1 TEMPERATURE Temperature Control 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. • Warm and hot water will be cooler than what your previous washer provided. • Even in a cool water wash, some warm water may be added to the washer to maintain a minimum temperature. 5 4 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. SENSING 2 CYCLE OPTIONS The following options may be added to most cycle. See "Cycle Guide" for additional details. EXTRA RINSE This option can be used to automatically add a second rinse to most cycles. FABRIC SOFTENER This option must be set to "Yes" if using fabric softener during a cycle. ECOBOOST™ option The EcoBOOST™ option allows you to increase your energy savings on your wash cycles. When this option is used, the wash cycle will use slightly cooler wash water than the selected temperature. 3 WASH CYCLE KNOB Use the Wash Cycle knob to select available cycles on your washer. Turn the knob to select a cycle for your laundry load. See "Cycle Guide" for detailed descriptions of cycles. When the START/Pause/Unlock button is pressed, the washer will first perform a self-test on the lid lock mechanism. You will hear a click, the basket will make a slight turn, and the lid will unlock briefly before locking again. Once the lid has locked the second time, the washer will use short, slow spins to estimate the load size. These sensing spins may take 2 to 3 minutes before water is added to the load and you may hear the hum of these spins. If the sensing light is on, then washer is working properly. You will hear the motor turn the basket in short pulses to thoroughly wet the load. The washer will then move the load briefly, pause to allow water to soak in to the load, and resume adding water. This process may repeat until the correct amount of water has been added for the load. You may also hear water flowing through the dispenser, adding detergent to the load. NOTE: Avoid opening lid during sensing. The sensing process will start over when the washer is restarted. The sensing light may also come on during the Soak and Wash portions of the cycle. This is normal. WASH 4 START/PAUSE/UNLOCK BUTTON Press to start the selected cycle; press again to pause the cycle and unlock the lid. NOTE: If the washer is spinning, it may take several minutes to unlock the lid. Press and hold 3 sec to cancel a cycle. You will hear the motor and washplate moving the load. Unlike traditional washers, the load is not covered with water. Low-water cleaning means concentrated cleaning. Rather than diluting detergent as done in an agitator-style washer, this washer delivers the detergent directly to the soils. The motor sounds may change at different stages in the cycle. The wash time is determined by the selected soil level. 4
