Whats New Under the Lid?

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. After a cycle is started, the washer will fill to the appropriate water level. When the washer is done filling, it will start to agitate. If you need to open the lid to add a garment after this point, the lid will remain unlocked during the entire agitation portion of the wash phase. The cycle will automatically pause when the lid is opened, and the cycle will resume once the lid is closed. The lid will lock before the spin phase begins. If you need to pause or stop after this point, press the START/STOP button and wait for the lid to unlock. The lid will only unlock after washer movement has stopped. Depending on when in the cycle you try to pause, it may take several seconds to several minutes for the lid to unlock. Press START/STOP to resume the cycle.

Water Level Options

Set the Water Level knob to the Auto Sensing setting and the washer will fill to a level that ensures the load engages the agitator. From this point, the electronic control will sense the load and determine if additional water is needed.

Set the Water Level knob to the Deep Water Wash setting and the washer will fill to the maximum water level.

NOTE: Deep Water Wash is unavailable in the Normal cycle mode. Normal cycle with the Deep Water Wash modifier chosen will result in Auto Sensing water level.

t different stages of the wash cycle, you may hear sounds and pauses that are different from those of your previous washer. For example, you may hear a clicking and hum at the beginning of the spin phase as the lid lock goes through a self-test. There will be different kinds of humming and whirring sounds as the agitator tests for load balance or moves the load. Sometimes, you may hear nothing at all as the washer allows time for clothes to soak.

Choosing the Right Detergent

Use only High Efficiency detergents. The package will be marked HE or High Efficiency. Using non-HE detergent will likely result in longer cycle times and reduced rinsing performance. It may also result in component malfunction and, over time, buildup of mold or mildew. HE detergents should be low-sudsing and quick-dispersing to produce the right amount of suds for the best performance. They should hold soil in suspension so it is not redeposited onto clean clothes. Not all detergents labeled as High

Efficiency are identical in formulation and their ability to reduce suds. For example, natural, organic, or homemade

HE detergents may generate a high level of suds. Always follow the detergent manufacturers instructions to determine the amount of detergent to use.

This washer will perform a series of spins to check for load balance. During this time, a series of clicks and a whirring noise signal that sensing technology is determining if there is an off-balance load.

Use only High Efficiency (HE) detergent.

Spray Rinse

elect cycles default to a spray rinse. During these cycles, you will hear water enter the washer as the tub spins, allowing the rins
