Select the Agitate/Spin Speed appropriate for the items being soaked.

Select Regular Cycle Option OFF.

Follow Soak with a complete wash cycle using the normal amount of detergent.

The Prewash water temperature is the same as the wash water temperature selected. To avoid setting protein stains, select cold water.

Select the Agitate/Spin Speed appropriate for the items being prewashed.

WASH/RINSETEMPERATUREsets water temperatures for washing and rinsing. Select wash water temperature accordingtofibercontent,soillevelandtypeofdetergent. A cold water rinse saves energy and reduces wrinkling.

Automatic Wash Temperature

The normal temperature of warm and cold wash water can be affected by the hot water heater setting and seasonally low ground water temperatures in some geographic areas. Since detergents work best in wash water at a minimum of 65° F, select an Automatic Wash Temperature to regulate the temperature of the warm and cold wash water in any cycle.

Wash water in the Automatic Warm/Cold and

Automatic Warm/Warm settings is regulated to approximately 90° F. and the wash water in theAutomatic Cold/Cold setting is regulated to approximately 70° F. Rinse water temperatures are not regulated.

The following chart suggests wash/rinse temperatures for some typical wash loads.

LOAD SIZE sets the amount of wash and rinse water for the wash load. Select a water level appropriate for the load size. There should be enough water for items to move freely.

To increase water level after the wash cycle begins, turn the Load Size control to Reset and hold. When water begins to enter the tub, turn the control to the desired setting.

Energy Saving Tips

Wash full loads. Oversize loads use extra energy. Undersize loads waste energy.

When small wash loads cannot be avoided, use lower water levels.

Select the appropriate cycle and time for each load. Shorten wash times for lightly soiled loads.

To reduce drying time, select a fast spin speed to remove more water from heavy items such as towels and jeans.

Use warm water to wash most loads. Limit hot water washes to heavily soiled and white loads. Use cold water for lightly soiled items and rinsing.

Operate the washer in early morning and late evening when utility demands are low.

Follow proper laundry procedures to avoid rewashing.
