Cycle Selection (continued)
Knits / Delicates Cycle
This cycle provides 6 minutes of gentle wash
agitation followed by a slow spin for knit and
delicate items.
Soak/Prewash Cycle
Soak
• Use Soak to treat heavily soiled or stained
items. Soak provides 3 minutes of agitation
and 12 minutes of soaking time. The load
then advances into the Prewash portion of
the cycle.
• Use the amount of detergent recommended
for a normal wash cycle. If desired, use
bleach or a soaking agent for colorfast items.
• The Soak water temperature is the same as
the rinse water temperature selected.
• Follow Soak with a complete wash cycle
using the normal amount of detergent.
Prewash
• Use Prewash when soaking is not necessary.
Prewash helps remove protein-based stains
such as milk, grass and blood. It also helps
loosen soils before washing. During Prewash,
the washer will agitate the load for 3 minutes,
then drain, spin and shut off.
• Use the amount of detergent recommended
for a normal wash cycle.
• The Prewash water temperature is the same
as the wash water temperature selected. To
avoid setting protein stains, select cold
water.
• Follow Prewash with a complete wash cycle
using the normal amount of detergent.
Controls
Always follow instructions on fabric care
labels.
WATER TEMPERATURE sets water
temperatures for washing and rinsing. Select
wash water temperature according to fiber
content and soil level of the load, and type of
detergent used. A cold water rinse saves
energy and reduces wrinkling.
If a cold rinse is selected, the washer will fill
with cold water during rinse, followed by a
cold spray rinse during final spin. If a warm
rinse is selected, the washer will fill with
cold water during rinse, followed by a
warm spray rinse during final spin.
The following chart suggests wash/rinse
temperatures for basic fabric types.

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 wash cycle with
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.
Warm/Warm
WATER LEVEL 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 Water Level control to Reset
and hold. When water begins to enter the
tub, turn the control to the desired
setting.
