WashSmart™ controls

Details such features as the Easy touch buttons, Time to go, and Keylock mode.

Easy touch buttons

The smooth easy clean buttons require only a gentle touch to activate.

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 machine starts. The screen will also display messages to help you with the overall running of your machine.

Time to go

Your WashSmart™ 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 complete will 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.

Keylock mode

Keylock can be used to lock the buttons on your WashSmart™ when not in use. This will avoid accidental button pushes from items left on the lid of the washer and also from any little fingers. 

To turn Keylock mode ON or OFF:
  • Touch and hold the KEYLOCK button for 2 seconds.

When activated, the light above the KEYLOCK button is illuminated.

If Keylock mode is activated:
  • To turn your washer on, touch and hold the POWER button for 2 seconds. This will activate the control panel. Keylock mode will remain activated. 
  • To PAUSE your washer at any time during the cycle, touch and hold the START / PAUSE button for 2 seconds, or touch the START / PAUSE button twice in quick succession.
  • To STOP your washer or power off at any time, touch and hold the POWER button for 2 seconds or touch the POWER button twice in quick succession.
