6. Utility Cycles - Front Load Washer

6.  Utility Cycles

Different utility cycles of front load washer

These Cycles are used for specific washer needs. 

  • Clean Washer - Use this every 30 washes to keep the inside of your washer fresh and clean. This cycle uses a higher water level. Use with affresh® Washer Cleaner tablets or liquid chlorine bleach to thoroughly clean the inside of your washer. When using this cycle, the drum should be empty. This cycle should not be interrupted. See the “Washer Care” section of your Owner's Manual.
  • Drain & Spin - This cycle removes excess water from the load or special-care items washed by hand. Use this cycle after a power failure. For some fabrics, you may choose to set a slower spin speed.  

NOTE: When a utility cycle (Drain & Spin or Clean Washer) is selected, your previously-selected What-to-Wash/How-to-Wash cycle will deactivate.

Reminders: 

  • Always measure liquid chlorine bleach. Use a measuring cup with a pour spout; do not guess.
  • Do not fill beyond the “MAX” level. Overfilling could cause garment damage.
  • Do not use thickened, easy-pour, or no-splash bleach when running the Clean Washer with affresh® cycle as excess suds may occur.
  • Do not add liquid chlorine bleach to the bulk dispenser.
  • Slowly close dispenser drawers. Make sure the drawers are closed completely.
