Washing Machine Settings

Dive into this guide on laundry cycles — discover how they work and when to use them.

The Normal cycle is a go-to for day-to-day loads. But when different stains and fabric types pile up in the laundry basket, 

get the most out of your machine with cycles that go beyond the norm. Check your owner’s manual for your washer’s specific cycles. 

Always check the use and care instructions on your appliance and clothing labels before washing.
