Why does the washing drum starts spinning when I press the Start/Pause button?

Last modified : Mar 02. 2018

When you press Start/Pause button the Automatic Sensing Function gets activated.


Your washer is equipped with an automatic sensing function which automatically senses the amount of laundry and the appropriate water level, wash time, rinse cycle, and spin time.


After the power is on, a program is selected and the Start/Pause button is pressed, the washing board starts spinning without water. This action senses how much laundry is in the washing basket, and this is not a machine problem. After the sensing process has completed, water is supplied automatically.
