NOTE: None of our laundromats have top load machines anymore due to reliability issues and the ability to get clothes clean. We’ve removed them for several good reasons however, this information below may be helpful to someone looking at how to use a top-load coin-operated washing machine.
Number of loads of laundry:
- LOAD SIZE
Select the setting most suitable for your load. Ex Small
will add a low amount of water for smaller loads and Super will add the most amount of water for large or bulky loads. Items need to move freely. Tightly packing can lead to poor cleaning performance, and may increase wrinkling and tangling.
- 2 TEMPERATURE
Temperature senses and maintains uniform water temperatures by regulating incoming hot and cold water.
Select a wash temperature based on the type of fabric and soils being washed. For best results and following the garment label instructions, use the warmest wash water safe for your fabric.
- Warm and hot water will be cooler than what your previous washer provided.
- Even in a cold and cool water wash, some warm water may be added to the washer to maintain a minimum temperature.
- 3 OPTIONS
The following options may be added to most cycles.
This option can be used to automatically add a second rinse to most cycles.
FABRIC SOFTENER ADDED-YES
This option must be selected if using fabric softener during a cycle. It ensures that fabric softener is added at the correct time in the rinse for even distribution.
FABRIC SOFTENER ADDED with EXTRA RINSE
This option turns on both the Fabric Softener and the Extra Rinse options.
- 4 WASH CYCLE KNOB
Use the Wash Cycle knob to select cycles on your washer. Knob does not advance during the progress of the cycle, see cycle status lights for each stage of the process. See “Cycle Guide” for detailed descriptions of cycles.
- 5 START/PAUSE/UNLOCK BUTTON
Press to start the selected cycle; press again to pause the cycle and unlock the lid.
NOTE: If the washer is spinning, it may take several minutes to unlock the lid. Press and hold for 3 seconds to cancel a cycle.
