Cycle Settings, continuedCycle OptionsEnergy Saving Tips
Wash full loads. Oversize loads use extra energy. Undersized
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 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.

Turn the Load Size knob to select a water level
appropriate for the load size. For best results, DO NOT
overload. Add items loosely to the tub. The dry load
should not be higher than the top of the agitator vanes.
There should be enough water in the tub for items to
move freely.
To increase the water level after the wash cycle begins, turn
the Load Size knob to Reset and hold. When water begins
to enter the tub, turn the knob to the desired setting.
Turn the Wash/Rinse Temp knob to select the wash
water temperature suitable for the fi ber content and soil
level of each load. A cold water rinse saves energy and
reduces wrinkling.
If a cold rinse is selected, the washer will fi ll with cold
water during rinse, followed by a cold spray rinse during
nal spin. If a warm rinse is selected, the washer will fi ll
with cold water during rinse, followed by a warm spray
rinse during fi nal spin.
To conserve energy, the hot wash water is regulated.
Warm and cold wash and rinse water temperatures are
not regulated.
The following chart suggests wash/rinse temperatures for
basic fabric types.

When selecting PowerPlus Clean, the fabric softener
dispenser must be fi lled with diluted liquid detergent
at the beginning of the Soak or Prewash setting. The
detergent for the Whites cycle will then be dispensed

Clean the fabric softener dispenser thoroughly after
each use. Fabric softener and liquid detergent should
not be mixed.
Set the cycle selector at 5. Soak or Prewash and pull
knob to start. The washer will provide Soak or Prewash
as selected. It then automatically advances to the full
Whites cycle and Extra Rinse cycle.
Select Extra Rinse to automatically add an additional deep
rinse to the Whites cycle. It provides 3 minutes of rinse
agitation in cold water, followed by a spray rinse at the
selected rinse water temperature during spin. If desired, add
liquid fabric softener to this rinse (not the fabric softener
dispenser) or use a softener sheet in the dryer. DO NOT pour
fabric softener directly onto the load.
