WASHER CHILD SAFETY LOCK

August 1, 2018
Front-load washers start up differently than top-load washers. The sequence of operation is:
  1. Load clothes
  2. Load detergent and other laundry products that you may need.
  3. Press the Power button. (The first time the unit is plugged in, you may see a 15 second delay with the display coming on. The computer is checking the system - this is normal).
  4. Select the cycle. For example: Whites, Normal, Speed Wash.
  5. Press Start.
  6. For 15 seconds, the unit's computer checks the system and then locks the door.
  7. The basket turns 1/4-turn clockwise, then counter-clockwise and unlocks the door. This is called the Child Safety procedure.
  8. The system pauses for ~15 seconds with the door unlocked, to allow a child to get out. The system locks the door and does a dry spin to determine the weight of the clothes in the washer.
  9. If this is the front-load model with a bulk dispenser: The first time it is used a 2 minute delay happens while the system charges the pumps for SmartDispense™.
  10. Water is then added and the unit does a spin to better determine the weight of the clothes.
  11. System begins filling with water based on the weight of the clothes, and starts the wash process. This is about 60 seconds after Start was pressed (or 3 minutes for SmartDispense).
