Changing Pre-Set Options

 

Option Adjustment Mode

After using your washer a number of times you may want to fine tune some of the options to suit your wash needs.

There are a Number of Pre-Set Options which can be altered:

  1. Changing the COLD wash temperature to CONTROLLED COLD.
  2. The out of balance recovery routine.
  3. The number of beeps at the end of the cycle.
  4. Resetting to factory default settings.

To enter Option Adjustment Mode

  1. Turn the machine on at the wall but do not touch POWER. Touch and hold the KEYLOCK and START/PAUSE buttons together for 3 seconds. You will hear 3 quick beeps indicating you have entered Option Adjustment mode and the machine will show the default setting for the COLD wash temperature.
  2. The diagrams on page 39 show how the wash cycle icons relate to the options you can change on your washer model.
  3. Pages 40 – 42 explain the different options in more detail.
  4. Use the dial and/or buttons on the control panel to make your changes to the pre-set options.
  5. Touch POWER to return to normal mode when you have finished modifying your options. Your washer will automatically remember your changes.

Wash Temperature

Controlled Cold

If your incoming cold water temperature is very low you will get a less effective wash. The CONTROLLED COLD option solves this problem by adding a small amount of hot water to raise the temperature of the wash to approximately 68°F (20°C).

To Program the CONTROLLED COLD Temperature Option:

  1. Enter Option Adjustment mode (refer to page 38).
  2. For the WL4027P model: select the HEAVY cycle (Fig.29).
    For the WL4027G model: select the REGULAR cycle (Fig.30).
  3. Select COLD wash temperature by using the WASH TEMP button (if not already selected).
  4. The digital display shows the temperature adjustment possible. The default setting isap.png, ie the temperature of the incoming water from the cold cylinder (tank).
  • Touch the MOREplus.png button so zero.png or double zero.png is displayed. Your washer will now control the cold temperature to approximately 68°F (20°C).

If you always use COLD or CONTROLLED COLD water, we recommend that a WARM or HOT wash be used regularly, eg every 5th wash should be at least a warm one to maintain the cleanliness of your washer.

 

Out of balance (OOB) Recovery Routine

When your washer is spinning it can sense if the wash load is out of balance. If an out of balance load is detected, the washer will stop and retry spinning one more time. If it still senses an unbalanced load there are two options the washer can take.

Automatic Recovery OFF (default setting)

Your washer will stop, beep, and showout.png in three phases on the display screen. You must redistribute the load more evenly yourself and touch START/PAUSE to resume the cycle. Use this option if you wish to conserve water.

Automatic Recovery ON

Your washer will try to automatically correct the out of balance load. The machine will fill with water and agitate to redistribute the load before trying to spin up again.

The washer will compensate for any out of balance by reducing the spin speed. As a result, your clothes may be wetter than you expect at the end of the cycle.

To Change the Out of Balance Recovery Routine:

  1. Enter Option Adjustment mode (refer to page 38).
  2. For the WL4027P model: select the DELICATE cycle.
    For the WL4027G model: select the HEAVY cycle.
  3. Touch the MORE plus.png button to turn automatic out of balance recovery on or off.

  1. Enter Option Adjustment mode (refer to page 38).
