Start a new cycle: After completing the reset, select a new wash cycle by using the control panel buttons. You can customize the cycle options, such as the wash temperature or extra rinse, according to your preferences. 7. Press "Start": Once you have set the desired cycle, press the "Start" or "Start/Resume" button to begin the new wash cycle.
