Possible Solutions

  

Rinsing before Running a Wash Cycle

IMPORTANT: Before rinsing, make sure to sort, prepare, and load laundry as discussed in “Running a Wash Cycle” in your Use and Care Guide.

Turn on Faucet

  • Press the faucet button once. You do not need to hold the button.
  • Turn off the faucet by pressing the button again.
  • If accidentally left on, the faucet will automatically shut off.
  • Water from the tub will automatically drain if the level becomes too high. The water will also drain after 10 minutes if the lid is left open.

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.

• Water in the tub will always be drained before you start a wash cycle.

Rinse and drain water, if desired

• If you choose to rinse the laundry and then drain: with the washer turned on, select RINSE & SPIN and touch and hold the START/PAUSE button.

• Water in the tub will always be drained before you start a wash cycle.
