Was looking for a way to get constant, slow agitation for the wash, but with the Normal Eco cycle's water-saving spray rinse feature. (Agitation is fast on the Normal Eco cycle.)

Then I remembered something that Malcolm posted last summer in another thread: Press the Whites and Perm Press cycle buttons simultaneously and the timer will automatically advance to the next operation.

I just washed a load of black clothes using 6 minutes of slow agitation (thanks to the Bulky cycle), cancelled that cycle, chose Normal Eco, then pressed Whites and Perm Press together. It advanced immediately to the first spin. Brilliant!

Occasionally, a very lightly-soiled needs only 2-4 minutes of wash agitation. I can use the hack to jump ahead in those instances, as well.
