Touch to activate additional wash options or additional features on the washer. Not all options are available on all models.

Omnia A.JPG  Delay Start  - Touch this option to delay the start of the wash cycle by up to 12 hours.

Omnia B.JPG  Fresh Hold®/Fresh Spin™  -  The Fresh Hold®/Fresh Spin™ option will periodically tumble the load after the end of the cycle for up to 24 hours while the integrated fan circulates air through the washer to reduce humidity. Fresh Spin™ also periodically tumbles the load after the end of the cycle but does not use an integrated fan. To turn on the Fresh Hold®/Fresh Spin™ option, touch FRESH HOLD. If, however, the Fresh Hold®/Fresh Spin™ option is turned on, it will stay on for all future cycles until turned back off – the washer remembers the last on/off status set. To turn off the Fresh Hold®/Fresh Spin™ option, touch FRESH HOLD. To turn off the Fresh Hold®/Fresh Spin™ option when it is running, touch POWER.

NOTE: The door will lock while the Fresh Hold®/Fresh Spin™ option is active. To cancel the option and unlock the door, touch POWER.

Omnia C.JPG  Steam  - The Steam option adds additional soak and wash time to many cycles to help remove tough stains as well as a steam boost for added cleaning power. An integrated heater helps to maintain optimal wash temperatures.

Omnia D.JPG  Extra Rinse  - Activate this option to add an extra rinse to most cycles.

Omnia E.jpg   Cycle Signal -  Touch and hold CYCLE SIGNAL for about 3 seconds, the display will count down you will see “3,” then “2,” then “1.” The display will start displaying the sound levels you will see “1,” then “2,” then “3,” then “OFF.” When the CYCLE SIGNAL is released the last value shown will be the current selection.

Omnia F.jpg   Control Lock  -  Touch and hold for 3 seconds to lock the controls to avoid unwanted changes or operation. Touch and hold 3 seconds again to unlock. For each second CONTROL LOCK is held down, the display will count down 1 second; you will see “3,” then “2,” then “1.” You may still touch START to pause the cycle or touch POWER to turn off the washer.
