AquaSmart Controls


SmartTouchTM Control dial

The SmartTouchTM control dial provides easy and efficient cycle selection. As you rotate the dial, the cycle selected will be illuminated, as will the default settings for that cycle on the right of the control panel.

SmartTouchTM 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 program 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 (if available on your model of washer). 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 washer.

Time to go

Your AquaSmartTM washer displays approximately how many minutes the 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 cycle will take to complete will be displayed. Please be aware that a number of factors influence the overall cycle time, eg the water flow rate, load size and wash cycle selection, therefore times will vary.

Keylock Mode

Keylock can be used to lock the buttons on your AquaSmartTM when not in use. This will avoid accidental button pushes from items left on the lid of the washer (eg washing baskets) as well as touches from any little fingers.

To Turn Keylock Mode ON or OFF:

  • Touch POWER, then touch and hold the KEYLOCK button for 2 seconds Note: 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 will remain activated but will allow you to select your wash cycle options and start the cycle.
  • 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 and power off, simply touch the POWER button.
