Adding garment(s)

If you need to open the lid to add one or two missed garments: Press the START/PAUSE button. The lid will unlock once the washer movement has stopped. This may take several minutes if the load was spinning at high speed. Add garments, close lid, and press the START/PAUSE button again to restart the cycle. NOTE: Washer will not fill with the lid open. IMPORTANT: If lid is left open for more than 10 minutes, the water will pump out automatically.
