How to use the Electronic Control on my Washer (Controls on the Washer Lid)

Electronic Touch Pad Information


NOTE: The control panel features a sensitive surface that responds to a light touch of your finger. To ensure your selections are registered, touch the control panel with your finger tip, not your fingernail. When selecting a setting or option, simply touch its name until the desired section is illuminated.

When using the touch control, touch on the name to operate, not the lights. The lights show which cycles and options are active, but the touch area is on the name of the cycle or option.

Is the control locked?

If the Control Lock feature is activated the Control Lock light will be on. The controls will not respond to any touch commands. Hold the "Quick" button for 3 seconds to unlock. You will see the control count down 3, 2, 1.  The controls can be locked when the washer is operating or when it is not. If the washer is not powered on, and the controls are locked, you must unlock the controls before the washer will power on.

Is the Delay Wash set?

If Delay Wash is selected and the Delay Wash status light is on, your washer will start after the selected hours of delay are completed.

The washer pauses for about 2 minutes during certain cycles. Allow the cycle to continue. Some cycles feature periods of tumbling and soak.

Did the control skip a selection?

Once you select a cycle, the default modifiers for that cycle will be lit. Touch the cycle settings buttons to change the Soil Level, Spin Speed, and Temperature, if desired.

NOTE:  Not all settings are available with all cycles. If a setting is skipped, it is not available for that cycle.
