For best results, remove the load promptly.

The washer will fill to the correct water level based on the load size and the Water Level selection. Certain cycles may agitate during the fill process to boost cleaning. You will hear the agitator rotate followed by a pause lasting several seconds. When the wash cycle begins, you will hear the agitator increase speed.

The motor sounds may change at different stages in the wash cycle while the washer performs different wash actions.

LID LOCKED

The Lock feature allows for higher spin speeds. When lit, the lid is locked and cannot be opened without pausing the cycle. When the light is off, the lid can be opened.

To open the lid after it has been locked, press the START/STOP button. The lid will unlock once the washer movement has stopped. This may take several minutes if the load was spinning at high speed. Press the START/STOP button while the lid is closed to resume the cycle.

Certain cycles use a spray rinse, which adds water to the tub while the basket spins. When Fabric Softener

Yes is selected, you will hear sounds similar to the wash cycle as the washer rinses and moves the load.

You may hear the motor turning on briefly (short hum) to move the basket while filling.

FINAL SPIN

The washer spins the load at increasing speeds for proper water removal based on the selected cycle and spin speed.
