Hi, Overall, I am happy with this washer/dryer set, but I have a couple of questions. 1) Do we know why they needed the "3-2-1" Start for these machines? 2) Is there any way to change the setting to just "start"? I cannot tell you how many times I thought I "started" the washer and came back 45 mins later to learn that it did not start. It's so frustrating. Why can't I just press "Start" and Start the machine?? Thanks! **NOTE: I just realized that my header shows an extra "8" in the model number. It is actually WED8620HW.

Corrected model number

That's the way the new ones are built now, I don't know why they implemented that either.

There's no way to by-pass it to just start instantly, without the 3-2-1 countdown when you hold the start button.
