How to set my Front-Load Washer (WF45K6500AV) to automatically end a cycle?

Last Update Date : Apr 09. 2018

Delay End

You can set the washer to finish your wash automatically at a later time by choosing a delay of between 1 to 24 hours (in 1 hour increments). The hour displayed indicates the time the wash will finish.

Note: The provided information refers to the appliances sold in Canada. The available settings and options may differ from appliances sold in other countries.

Real-life case

At 14:00, you want to finish a 45 minutes cycle 4 hours from now. To do this, you add the Delay End option to the current cycle with a 4-hour setting, and then press START/PAUSE at 14:00. The washer starts operating at 17:15 and ends at 18:00. Provided below is the timeline for this example:
