Have a WDL540 can you explain the symbols on the right hand side of the machine has mins and other symbols. Don't have an instruction book. A wash takes 2 hours at 40 degrees its too long.

Do you mean a Hotpoint Aquarius WDL 540 washer? The wash cycle timing is available in the manual on page 8 of the manual (see link below). A normal-sized cottons wash at 40 degrees C takes about 150 minutes (2 1/5 hours) if you have good water pressure and do not use too much detergent. The coloreds cycle is shorter (just under 90 minutes). The indicator lights on the very right hand side (in a downward slash pattern) give the cycle status information. The top light is wash, and the next one down is rinse. The rest are Spin, Dry and End of Cycle. See page 7 of the manual. The function buttons, below the wash temperature and drying time/humidity selection knobs, are from left to right: Super Wash, Extra Rinse, Mini Load, Slow Spin. These are given on page 9. The dryer dial gives you the choice of selecting a dry time from 40-180 minutes or by humidity. The humidity options are Iron (leaves clothes slightly damp), Hanger (ready to put away) and Cupboard (to dry heavy items like towels to a very dry stage). Note the dryer can't manage as large a load as the washer function does. You may need to split the load after doing the wash.

The manual for the WDL 540 is available on the product page: . The picture of the washer shows the function buttons when you zoom in on the control panel. The direct link to the manual is .

I hope this helps.

How do I reset the washing program ? I tried to change the washing cycle and it would not run. Now I cannot return to the original washing cycle.

Unplug the power then plug it in again. Now select the program you wish to run and start it. Make sure the door is well shut.

The dial on the cycles never advances to the "off" position

The timer is shot. Replace it. Check around there are places that rebuild them, sometimes at half the cost.

How long is the burner heat cycle supposed to be for a 2007 kenmore dryer

"How long is the burner heat cycle supposed to be for a 2007 Kenmore dryer?"

That would depend on which dryer setting (permanent press, cottons, delicate, etc) you had it set on and the amount of time you had it set to dry. The time setting is really what determines how long the cycle will be. The other setting determines the amount of heat that will be needed for that selection..

Hope this helps ....
