Adding Wash Options

As you're getting familiar with your front control top load washer, we can help you pick the appropriate options to enhance performance and convenience.*

*Options may vary.




You can now wash your laundry more thoroughly by setting the proper soil level on your washing machine. After all, some loads may be more heavily soiled than others. Simply press the SOIL LEVEL button repeatedly to select the appropriate soil level.


Maybe you added too much detergent with a small load or the load is too heavily soiled. If that's the case, and you want to avoid having any residue on your clothing, this option will add up to two extra rinses to the selected cycle to make sure there's no trace of detergent or bleach on your clothes or in your washer. All you need to do is press the EXTRA RINSE button.


You can choose to remove stains more thoroughly by soaking your clothes longer during a wash. Just press the SPECIAL USE button and select SOAK. Cycle time will be increased by 30 minutes. At the end of the SOAK cycle, the wash cycle will be started without drain. (Note: it is normal for the washer to perform weak agitation while soaking.)

Saving money is always a good thing, and it's even better when you don't need to compromise. ColdWash™ technology uses less warm water, along with innovative wash motions, to deliver warm-water performance and cold-water savings. Just add it to the cycle of your choice and be surprised.

The Highlights:

  • Saves you up to 82% more energy per load.
  • Uses less warm water—just enough to activate the detergent—and innovative wash motions.
  • For high wash efficiency, use it with less than 8 pounds.

Need to put the baby to sleep? Or maybe it's you who needs some rest. It's fine either way. With the DELAY WASH button, you can delay the start of the wash cycle for up to 19 hours. Each press of the button increases the delay time by one hour.


Kids can be a little unpredictable—and you don't want unpredictable things happening to your laundry. This setting prevents unwanted use of the washer and keeps cycle settings from being changed while the washer is operating.

To enable CHILD LOCK press and hold the SOIL LEVEL button for 3 seconds during the wash cycle. When the CHILD LOCK is enabled, a CL message and the remaining wash time are displayed, in turn, on the display panel of the washing machine.

To disable CHILD LOCK (when the CHILD LOCK is activated) press and hold the SOIL LEVEL button for 3 seconds during the wash cycle. Please note, CHILD LOCK lasts after the end of the cycle. If you want to deactivate this function, press and hold the SOIL LEVEL button for 3 seconds.
