Details controls and features such as the SmartTouch™ Control Dial, Digital Display Screen, Time To Go, Keylock mode, and more.

SmartTouch™ Control Dial

The SmartTouch™ Control Dial provides easy and efficient cycle selection. As you rotate the dial, the cycle selected will be illuminated, along with the default settings for that cycle on the right of the control panel.

SmartTouch™ buttons

The smooth, easy clean buttons require only a gentle touch to activate. Use these to power your washer on and off, start and pause your washer, select your wash options, activate keylock and programme a delay start.

Digital display screen

The digital display screen provides feedback on how long the wash cycle has to go, to keep you informed throughout the cycle. The screen also displays your ‘Delay Start’ selection, should you choose one. The delayed time remaining will show on the screen until the washer starts. The screen will also display messages to help you with the overall running of your washer.

Time to go

Your FabricSmart™ washer will display how many minutes a wash cycle has remaining, so that you can tell at a glance when your washing will be finished. Once you have selected your wash cycle and options, the time the wash cycle will take to completewill be displayed. Please be aware that actual cycle times may vary as they are influenced by a number of factors, eg the flow rate of your water supply, the load size and cycle selection.
