Turn the knob to select a cycle for your laundry load. Press the Wash Cycle knob to enable the Extra Power option. NOTE: The Clean Washer with affresh® LED will flash when the washer has run 30 wash cycles as a reminder to run the Clean Washer with affresh® cycle. See “Cycle Guide” for detailed descriptions of cycles.

NOTE: For best results when using the Overnight Wash & Dry cycle, use for loads weighing 2 lbs or less, such as a soccer uniform or a running tank and shorts. Allow the cycle to run the full duration of 12 hours.

Extra Power

Extra Power option can be used for increased cleaning power. Press the Wash Cycle Knob to activate the Extra Power option, which runs a cold pre-wash cycle before the main cycle. When Extra Power is activated, the Cycle Control Knob will illuminate and the estimated time remaining on the display will increase. On single load dispenser models, add an extra dose of detergent to the Bleach/Detergent for Extra Power compartment when using Extra Power, for best results.

See “Cycle Guide” in your Use & Care Guide for detailed descriptions of cycles.
