Please note that the movement (turning) of the Dryer Cycle knob is different than the movement (turning) of the Washer Cycle knob. The dryer knob will feel "stiffer" to rotate than the washer knob due to engineering differences. This is normal operation. 

Use the Wash Cycle knob to select available cycles on your washer. Turn the knob to select a cycle for your laundry load.

See “Washer Cycle Guide” in your Use & Care Guide for detailed descriptions of cycles.

If you would like to download or view product literature for your appliance, please visit our Manuals and Literature page.
