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 Use & Care Guide.
  • 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.
    • On some models: Touch and hold DRAIN & SPIN for 3 seconds to set a Dry Only cycle.
