Washer controls

Details such features as the SmartTouch™ buttons, Time to go, and Keylock mode.

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 cycle and 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 (this option is not available on the QuickSmart™ washer model). 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 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 washer 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  button for 2 seconds.
When activated, the light above the  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  button for 2 seconds, or touch the  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.
