*Cycle options will vary according to your model
COTTON OR NORMAL
You'll probably use this cycle a lot as it's good for everyday items like jeans, towels, shirts, sheets and mixed loads. And, of course, clothes made of cotton.
This cycle was designed especially to do just what it describes: wash and maintain bright white fabrics.
Use this cycle for large items like blankets, comforter, pillows, and other items that have difficult absorbing water. Make sure to only wash small loads to make sure there is plenty of room for the load to move during washing. Don't mix with smaller clothing items.
Use for heavily soiled cotton fabrics.
Use this cycle for lightly soiled and colored clothing.
Use this cycle for dresses, shirts, blouses, nylons, and any sheer or lacy garments. (Available on WT1101, WT4870, and WT5170)
If you don't have time to wait around, now you have the SpeedWash™ cycle. Great for lightly soiled clothing and small loads, this cycle can have clothes clean and fresh faster than a normal cycle. For high wash-and-rinse efficiency, use this for loads of 2-3 lightly soiled garments.
Using the washing machine in a humid space for a long period of time can lead to a buildup of mold and germs in the air inside the washer tub. However, you can use the TUB CLEAN cycle on a monthly basis.
Perm Press Casual
Use this cycle to minimize wrinkles for dress shirts and pants, wrinkle-free clothing, poly/cotton blend clothing, and tablecloths. (Available on WT5070 and WT5170 models.)
Use this cycle to wash small, lightly soiled loads. (Available on WT5070 and WT5170 models.)
Use this cycle for washing towels, shirts, jeans, and mixed loads. (Available on WT5070 and WT5170 models.)
Use this cycle for garments that are specially designed and treated for sports. (Available on WT5070 and WT5170 models.)
This cycle is for washing shrinkable woolen or hand-washable items requiring delicate care. Only wash woolen items that are labeled machine washable or hand-washable. (Available on WT5070 and WT5170 models.)
When it comes to work clothes, baby diapers or heavily soiled garments, this cycle is just what you were looking for. It uses extreme temperature changes—extra hot during the wash, cold during the rinse—to clean the dirtiest clothing items in the house. (Only available on WT5170 model.)
