Wrinkle Shield™ - Front Load Washer

Possible Solutions

Wrinkle Shield™ Option

The Wrinkle Shield™ option is only available when a drying mode is selected, and will periodically tumble the load after the end of the cycle for up to 12 hours. Wrinkle Shield™ may be ended at any time by touching the “X” on the touch screen to the right of the estimated time remaining.

Wrinkle Shield™ is used to help prevent excess wrinkles after your Washer/Dryer has completed a cycle. 

NOTE: When Wrinkle Shield™ is activated, the Washer will turn off and on periodically for up to 12 hours after the end of the wash/dry cycle. This is normal operation.

Estimated Time Remaining 

When using Wrinkle Shield, the estimated time remaining on the display may show an unusually long time. This happens when Wrinkle Shield is selected, it adds 12 hours to the display. The display may add the 12 hour time, but that is not the remaining cycle time.
