Possible Solutions

There is no error - the Delay Wash is activated

When the display shows a number up to 12, followed by an "h", it means that the Delay Wash has been activated. Most front load washers can be set to delay the wash for up to 8 or 12 hours (depending on your model). 

To set the Delay Wash, turn on the power, then tap the "+" or "-" button near the display. See picture below for an example - location may vary depending on model. 

Tap the +/- button to increase/decrease the time for the delay in 1 hour increments. Some models have up to an 8 hour delay, others up to 12 hours. Once set to the preferred delay time, press the start button. The display time will decrease every hour until it reaches "0h", and the washer will start at that time. The Delay Wash light will remain on until the washer starts.

To turn off the Delay Wash once it has been set, turn the power button off. 

For other question on using the Delay Wash feature, see your Use and Care Guide.
