7.  Start/Pause Button

The Start/Pause Button is used to start a cycle, or to pause a cycle. 

Touch this button to start a cycle, touch again to pause the cycle. When you start a cycle, the door will lock, the washer/dryer will sense the load size, and the wash or dry cycle will begin. When you pause a cycle, you must touch the start button again to restart the cycle. 

NOTE:  When pressing the "Pause" button to pause a cycle, the washer/dryer may not unlock immediately. If the water level is too high, or water temperature is too hot, the washer/dryer will wait until it is okay to open the door before it unlocks.
