4. Immediately call your
gas supplier.
FOR YOUR SAFETY
Do not store or use gasoline or other flammable
vapors and liquids in the
vicinity of this or any
other appliance. The
fumes can create a fire
hazard or explosion.
ImportantSafetyInstructions
To reduce the risk of fire, electric shock, or injury to persons when using your Thin Twin, follow basic precautions, including the following:
b Read all instructions before
using the Thin Twin.
l NEVER wash or dry items cleaned,
washed, soaked in or spotted with
wax, paint, gasoline or flammable
fluids in the Thin Twin. The fumes
can create a FIRE HAZARD or EXPLOSION. ALWAYS hand launder
and air dry fabrics containing these
materials.
l NEVER allow children to operate,
play with, or crawl inside the Thin
Twin. Close supervision of children is
necessary when the Thin Twin is
used near children.
l When discarding
an old Thin Twin,
ALWAYS remove the lid and door to
prevent accidental entrapment.
l NEVER reach into the Thin Twin
until all the motion stops. If the lid is
opened while the washer basket is
spinning, the basket will automatitally stop in a few seconds.
. DO NOT install or store Thin Twin
where it will be exposed to the
weather.
l DO NOT tamper with the controls.
l
l
NEVER use or store flammable
fluids (dry-cleaning solvents,
gasoline, kerosene) in or near your
Thin Twin. Do not add flammable
fluids to the wash water. These
substances give off vapors that
can create a FIRE HAZARD or
EXPLOSION.
l
l
l
l
You are responsible for making
sure that your Thin Twin is
installed, repaired and parts
replaced by a qualified person.
l
l
Use only dryer fabric softeners
specifically labeled as not being
harmful to the dryer.
FIRE HAZARD and DAMAGE to
materials can result from:
- drying rubber, rubber-like and
heat sensitive materials with heat.
- allowing lint to build-up inside
the dryer or exhaust system cleaning should be done by a
qualified person.
Clean lint screen before or after
each load.
If hot water has not been used
recently (usually 2 weeks or longer),
hydrogen gases may build up in
the water heater and the hot water
pipes. HYDROGEN GAS IS
EXPLOSIVE. To prevent injury or
damage, before using your washer,
turn on all hot water faucets and allow water to run for several minutes.
This will allow gases to escape. DO
NOT smoke or use any open flame
near the faucet while it is open.
DO NOT let dust, paper, rags, lint,
chemicals, etc. pile up, around or
under the Thin Twin.
The Thin Twin must be electrically
grounded. See the Installation
Instructions.

WasherOperatingInstructions
The drawings in this book may vary slightly from your Thin Twin model. They are
designed to show the different features of all the models covered by this book.
NOTE: Your model may not include all the features shown.
Startingyourwasher
Be sure to measure and add detergent, then place a sorted load in the washer before
starting it.
1. Select a load size
Turn the knob to point at a setting that
describes the size of load you want

water level that is too low for your wash
load.
For best results with permanent
press clothes, use the EX LARGE water
level.
Reduce wash time when using EX
SMALL or SMALL water level settings.
Loads with only a few small items need
less wash time for best results.
l
2. Select water temperature
l
l
Match the water temperature to
the type of fabric and soils being
washed.
The top temperature is the wash
selection and the bottom temperature is the rinse selection.
NOTE: Use warm wash water with

to a number and pulled out, the washer
fills before agitation and timing starts.
After agitation starts, the knob turns
clockwise until it points to OFF and the
cycle ends.
The washer will pause briefly
throughout each cycle. These pauses
are normal. They allow for the reversing
of the motor, normal washer operation
and the cool-down portion of the
PERMANENT PRESS Cycle.
NOTE: You may hear the sound of
water spraying during the spin parts of
some cycles. In some cycles, water is
sprayed on the spinning load to help
with the rinsing.
