Does anyone here know how to get an all HOT WASH in the ecosmart 2006 model.
So far im mostly happy but gotta say that some stubborn stains are not comming out.
The same stains in my 2005 maytag and no problem(same detergent/cyle and all) convinced its the lack of a hot wash.Any ideas anyone?

The only way you can get a total hot water wash fill is to select the Wrinkle Free cycle and let it fill up with water until it finishes filling and adjusting the water level. Then you can paul and select the normal or heavy cycle if you choose.

FilterFlo58, which model specifically do you have? GWL11 or GWL15? I believe the procedure is the same for both. Follow this exactly step by step. It should be outlined in your instruction book, described as a special cycle to clean the machine. You CAN wash clothes with it.

1. Turn on the Power.

2. Press and HOLD Favorite until it beeps a 2nd time and the cycle light flashes.

3. Select Perm Press.

4. Select HOT wash.

5. Press Favorite again to save the customization.

You can now run a hot wash whenever desired by selecting the saved Favorite cycle. (You don't have to re-program the Cleaning Cycle each time, unless you happen to change the Favorite programming with a different saved cycle at some point in time.) You should get a full-fill hot deep wash, without the EcoActive phase. You may or may not be able to save a specific water level and/or spin speed with the Cleaning Cycle. Try it. If not, then you can adjust the options each time, after selecting Favorite but before starting the machine. Perm Press normally does not allow High (1000 RPM) spin speed, but it should when used via this procedure as the special Cleaning Cycle.

If you want to run the Normal or Heavy Duty wash action, use the Cleaning Cycle to fill the machine to the desired water level, then turn off the power, turn it back on and select Normal or Heavy Duty with the desired water level. It should start agitating immediately since it will already be filled to that level.

The other machines based on the Fisher & Paykel(Kenmore Oasis, Whirlpool Cabrio, Maytag Bravos) Only do and Eco-Active phase if the "Stain Treat" option is selected. These washer however call it the "Catalyst Cleaning Action". These machines also use water directly from the tap for Hot temp water.
