  • The normal cycle is the default cycle for the SideKick washer.

  • If you press the start button without selecting a specific cycle, the normal cycle will begin using the default settings.

  • This wash cycle is ideal when you have a few articles of lightly soiled cotton, t-shirts, towels, or jeans.

  • Do not use this cycle for silk items.

  • The hand wash cycle can be used to wash drinkable woolen, or hand washable items that require delicate care.
