Presoaking without running a wash cycle

Possible Solutions

  

 

Turn on Faucet

  • Press the faucet button once. You do not need to hold the button.
  • TIP: You may want to add any detergent, color-safe bleach, or oxi-type boosters while the faucet is running to mix it with the water.  
  • Turn off the faucet by pressing the button again.
  • If accidentally left on, the faucet will automatically shut off.
  • IMPORTANT: To stop the tub from draining automatically in 10 minutes, you must close the lid. The water will remain in the tub as long as the lid is closed and you take no action. After 3 hours, the water will automatically be drained.

Drain the water manually

If you choose to drain water in the tub: with the washer turned on, select DRAIN & SPIN and touch and hold the START/PAUSE button.

NOTE: If you run a wash cycle, water in the tub will always be drained before you start the cycle.

Rinse and drain water, if desired

If you choose to rinse the laundry: with the washer turned on, select RINSE & SPIN and touch and hold the START/PAUSE button. The washer will drain, spin, rinse the load, and spin again.

NOTE: If you run a wash cycle, water in the tub will always be drained before you start the cycle.
