Important Safety Notice and Instructions The California Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986 (Proposition 65) requires the Governor of California to publish a list of substances known to the State of California to cause cancer or reproductive harm, and requires businesses to warn customers of potential exposures to such substances. Appliances with the UL symbol on the data plate have been listed with Underwriters’ Laboratories, Inc. Those with a CSA Monogram on the data plate have been certified by the CSA Testing Laboratories as complying with Canadian Standards Association requirements. Gas dryers with an AGA symbol on the data plate have been design certified with the American Gas Association; those with a CGA symbol on the data plate have been approved by the Canadian Gas Association. Nevertheless, as with any equipment using electricity and having moving parts, there are potential hazards. To use this appliance safely, the operator should become familiar with the instructions for operation of the appliance and always exercise care when using it. ® Users of this appliance are hereby warned that the burning of gas can result in low-level exposure to some of the listed substances, including benzene, formaldehyde and soot, due primarily to the incomplete combustion of natural gas or liquid petroleum (LP) fuels. Exhaust ducts should be kept free of obstructions and properly exhausted dryers will minimize exposure. WARNING — Do not place into your dryer items that have been spotted or soaked with vegetable oil or cooking oil. Even after being washed, these items may contain significant amounts of these oils. The remaining oil can ignite spontaneously. The potential for spontaneous ignition increases when the items containing vegetable oil or cooking oil are exposed to heat. Heat sources, such as your clothes dryer, can warm these items, allowing an oxidation reaction in the oil to occur. Oxidation creates heat. If this heat cannot escape, the items can become hot enough to catch fire. Piling, stacking or storing these kinds of items may prevent heat from escaping and can create a fire hazard. WARNING — For your safety the information in this manual must be followed to minimize the risk of fire or explosion or to prevent property damage, personal injury or death. – Do not store or use gasoline or other flammable vapors and liquids in the vicinity of this or any other appliance. – WHAT TO DO IF YOU SMELL GAS • Do not try to light any appliance. • Do not touch any electrical switch; do not use any phone in your building. • Clear the room, building or area of all occupants. All washed and unwashed fabrics that contain vegetable oil or cooking oil can be dangerous. Washing these items in hot water with extra detergent will reduce, but will not eliminate, the hazard. Always use the “cool down” cycle for these items to reduce the items’ temperature. Never remove these items from the clothes dryer hot or interrupt the drying cycle until the items have run through the “cool down” cycle. Never pile or stack these items when they are hot. • Immediately call your gas supplier from a neighbor’s phone. Follow the gas supplier’s instructions. • If you cannot reach your gas supplier, call the fire department. Installation and service must be performed by a qualified installer, service agency or the gas supplier. Save These Instructions 1 Important Safety Instructions WARNING — To reduce the risk of fire, explosion, electric shock, property damage or injury to persons when using your appliance, follow basic precautions, including the following: 1. Read all instructions before using the appliance. 2. To avoid the possibility of fire or explosion: a. Do not wash or dry items that have been previously cleaned in, washed in, soaked in, or spotted with gasoline, dry-cleaning solvents, other flammable or explosive substances as they give off vapors that could ignite or explode. Hand wash and line dry any items containing these substances. Any material on which you have used a cleaning solvent, or which is saturated with flammable liquids or solids, should not be placed in the appliance until all traces of these liquids or solids and their fumes have been removed. Do not repair or replace any part of the appliance or attempt any servicing unless specifically recommended in published user-repair instructions that you understand and have the skills to carry out. 9. The agitator should not be removed. If the agitator is removed, it must be replaced by pushing down completely and the locking screw tightened before the washer is operated. 14. This appliance must be properly grounded. Never plug the appliance cord into a receptacle which is not grounded adequately and in accordance with local and national codes. See Installation Instructions for grounding this appliance. 15. Unplug power supply cord before attempting to service your appliance. 16. Store laundry aids and other material in a cool, dry place where children cannot reach them. 17. Do not use chlorine bleach and ammonia or acids (such as vinegar or rust remover) in the same wash. Hazardous fumes can form. 18. Do not machine wash fiberglass materials. Small particles can stick to fabrics washed in following loads and cause skin irritation. e. Do not wash or dry items that are soiled with vegetable or cooking oil. These items may contain some oil after laundering. Due to the remaining oil, the fabric may smoke or catch fire by itself. 19. Before the appliance is removed from service or discarded, remove the door to the clothes dryer compartment. 20. Install and level washer on a floor that can support the weight. Do not allow children to play on or in the appliance. Close supervision of children is necessary when the appliance is used near children. Do not reach into the appliance if the tub, agitator, or drum is moving. 8. 13. The interior of the dryer and exhaust duct should be cleaned periodically by qualified service personnel. d. Items containing foam rubber (may be labeled latex foam) or similarly textured rubber-like materials must not be dried on a heat setting. Foam rubber materials when heated, can under certain circumstances produce fire by spontaneous combustion. 5. Do not tamper with controls. 12. Keep the area around the exhaust opening and surrounding areas free from lint accumulation, dust and dirt. c. Under certain conditions, hydrogen gas may be produced in a hot water system that has not been used for 2 weeks or more. HYDROGEN GAS IS EXPLOSIVE. If the hot water system has not been used for such a period, before using a washing machine or combination washer-dryer, turn on all hot water faucets and let the water flow from each for several minutes. This will release any accumulated hydrogen gas. As the gas is flammable, do not smoke or use an open flame during this time. Before the appliance is removed from service or discarded, remove the door to the clothes washer compartment. 7. 11. Clean the dryer lint screen before or after each load. b. Do not add gasoline, dry-cleaning solvents, or other flammable or explosive substances to the wash water. These substances give off vapors that could ignite or explode. 4. Do not install or store this appliance where it will be exposed to the weather. 10. Do not use fabric softeners or products to eliminate static unless recommended by the manufacturer of the fabric softener or product. These items include acetone, denatured alcohol, gasoline, kerosene, some liquid household cleaners, some spot removers, turpentine, waxes and wax removers. 3. 6. 21. As with any equipment using electricity and having moving parts, there are potential hazards. To use this appliance safely, the operator should become familiar with the instructions for operation of the appliance and always exercise care when using it.

It provides alternating periods of wash and soak for approximately 10 minutes. 3 Step 2 Select Load Size Turn the LOAD SIZE knob to the SMALL, MEDIUM, or LARGE setting. WATER LEVEL SETTING For best washing results, clothes must circulate freely. If too little water is used, poor cleaning, linting, and excessive wear may result. NOTE: When laundering permanent press items, delicates, washable woolen or loosely knit items, never use less than the MEDIUM setting. This will minimize shrinkage, wrinkling, and pulling of seams. Step 3 3/4 – Full Medium 1/2 – 3/4 Full Small 1/3 Full REMEMBER: Items must circulate freely for best results. WASH/RINSE TEMPS REMEMBER: In wash water temperatures below 65º F, detergents do not dissolve well or clean well. Care labels define cold water as up to 85º F. 4 Large Select Water Temperature Turn the TEMPERATURE knob to the desired water temperatures. Follow the garment care label for best results. Use the chart to the right as a guide. Step LOAD SIZE LOAD TYPE Hot/Cold White and heavily soiled, color-fast items Warm/Cold Moderately soiled, colored items; most permanent press items Cold/Cold Brightly colored, lightly soiled items; washable woolens Start Washer • Add detergent. • Add laundry load and close lid. NOTE: The washer is automatically programmed to assure proper agitation and spinning for each load type. REGULAR FABRICS will provide a fast wash/spin speed. PERMANENT PRESS will have a fast wash/spin speed along with a cooldown spray rinse. KNITS/DELICATES will have alternating periods of wash and soak and fast final spin speed. • Pull out control knob to start. 4 Washer Special Features Lift the Lid The washer lid lifts up and down to open and close. Internal springs will hold the lid in the open position until pulled down to close. This washer is designed so that it will not fill, agitate or spin when the lid is open. Should the lid be opened during a cycle, the washer will stop; when the lid is closed and the control knob is pulled out, the washer will resume its cycle at the point it was interrupted. Bleach Dispenser Fabric Softener Dispenser The dispenser automatically dilutes liquid chlorine bleach before it reaches your wash load. To use, follow these steps: This dispenser automatically releases liquid fabric softener at the proper time during the cycle. To use, follow these steps: 1. Measure liquid chlorine bleach carefully, following the instructions on the bottle. 1. Pour liquid fabric softener into the dispenser using the amount recommended on the package. 2. Add the bleach to the dispenser before adding the load. Avoid splashing or over-filling the dispenser. 2. Add warm water to the dispenser until it reaches the FILL LINE. NOTE: NOTE: • Never pour undiluted liquid chlorine bleach directly onto the load or into the wash tub. It is a powerful chemical and can cause fabric damage, such as tearing or color loss, if not used properly. • Do not stop the washer during the first spin. This will cause the dispenser to empty too soon. • Never pour fabric softener directly on the load. It will leave spots and stains. • If you prefer to use color-safe, non-chlorine bleach, pour it into the wash tub with your detergent. Do not pour non-chlorine bleaches into the bleach dispenser. • Use the dispenser for liquid fabric softeners only. Clean the area in and around the dispenser frequently with hot water, detergent and a soft brush. Pour liquid fabric softener into cup and dilute with warm water. Pour liquid chlorine bleach into the bleach dispenser. 5 Washer Operating Tips For detailed information on sorting, pretreating stains, etc., see the enclosed Laundering Tips pamphlet. Loading • Put dry, unfolded clothes loosely in the tub, up to the top row of holes for a maximum load. Detergent • Do not wrap large items like sheets around the agitator. • Use either liquid or granular laundry detergent. For best results, be sure detergent is added to the washer BEFORE the load and be sure wash water is above 65º F. • Mix large and small items for best circulation. Wash bulky items like blankets separately. • When laundering permanent press items or items of delicate construction, washable woolens or loosely knit items, never use less than the MEDIUM water level setting. This will minimize shrinkage, wrinkling and pulling of seams. • Use the correct amount of detergent for the load size, soil level and water conditions. Use more detergent if you have hard water and very soiled loads. If you have soft water or a lightly soiled load, use less detergent. (See manufacturer’s instructions.) • For best results, add the detergent to the washtub before adding the load. • Wipe up any detergent spills on the washer. Additional Tips • This washer is designed so that it will not fill, agitate or spin when the lid is open. • If the washer stops during the spin, it may be due to an unevenly distributed load. If this happens, push in the control knob, open the lid, redistribute the load, close the lid and pull out the control knob. The spin will resume at the point it was interrupted. • If you open the lid during a cycle, the washer will stop. When the lid is closed and the control knob pulled out, the washer will continue the cycle at the point it was interrupted. • The washer will pause briefly throughout each cycle. These pauses are normal. 6 Dryer Controls At A Glance Step 1 Select Cycle IntelliDry REGULAR FABRICS automatically senses the moisture in the load and shuts off when the selected dryness level is reached. This cycle is designed for loads such as towels, underwear, t-shirts, jeans, etc. Set the control to the desired dryness level (more dry – less dry) and press the START button. The middle ▲ is the initial preferred setting for the majority of loads. WRINKLE RELEASE will release wrinkles from items that are clean and dry but slightly wrinkled. This cycle is for clothes from a crowded closet or suitcase or from sitting in the dryer too long after the end of the cycle. It provides 10 minutes of heated tumbling and 5 minutes of cool-down tumbling without heat. Press the START button for the cycle to begin. DAMP DRY is designed to “partially” dry items. It provides approximately 20 minutes of heated tumbling and 5 minutes of cooldown tumbling without heat. Press the START button to begin tumbling. TIME DRY may be selected for any load if the IntelliDry sensor system is not desired. Set the control to the desired number of minutes and choose the appropriate drying temperature for the load. Then press the START button. IntelliDry PERM’T PRESS with Press Care automatically senses the moisture in the load and shuts off when the selected dryness level is reached. Permanent Press minimizes wrinkles of man-made fabrics such as acrylic, nylon, polyester, or blends with an extended cool-down by tumbling the load in unheated air at the end of the cycle. Simply set the control to the desired dryness level (more dry – less dry) and press the START button. The middle ▲ is the initial preferred setting for the majority of loads. AIR FLUFF provides tumbling without heat for sensitive loads or items needing freshening. Examples are: certain sweaters, shower curtains, camping gear, pillows, etc. Set the control to the desired number of minutes, up to 20 minutes, and press the START button. 7 Step 2 Select Temperature Step Press Start Push this button to start the dryer. The dryer door must be shut for the dryer to operate. If the door is opened during the cycle, the start button must be pushed again to resume the cycle once the door is closed. Turn the TEMPERATURE selection knob to the appropriate drying temperature. The choices are: REGULAR – for sturdy cottons or those labeled “Tumble Dry”. When the cycle is complete, a signal will sound momentarily. DELICATE – for heat sensitive items labeled “Tumble Dry Low” or “Tumble Dry Warm”. ; 3 Dryer Operating Tips Clean the Lint Filter... • after each load. @@@@@ ;;;;; QQQQQ @@@@@ ;;;;; QQQQQ Load the Dryer Properly... ;;; ;;; ;;; ;;; ;;; • by placing only one washload in the dryer at a time. • by avoiding very small loads or mixed loads. • to shorten drying time. • by adding one or more similar items to the dryer when only one or two articles need drying. This improves the tumbling action and drying efficiency. • to operate more energy efficient. NOTE: Do not operate the dryer without the lint filter in place. Add A Fabric Softener Sheet... (If So Desired) • after loading the dryer. • to control static cling. • before the load becomes warm. This helps prevent greasy–looking softener stains. • and remove any used softener sheets from the dryer to prevent greasy–looking softener stains. 8 Dryer Exhaust Tips WARNING — Plastic or nonmetal flexible duct presents a potential fire hazard. Do Don’t Read the installation instructions and the user’s guide. Let a poor exhaust system cause slow drying. DON’T Do Don’t Let your dryer exhaust the air easily. Restrict your dryer with a poor exhaust system. Don’t Do Use plastic, thin foil, or nonmetal flexible duct. DO Use 4 inch diameter rigid metal duct. Tape all joints. Never use lint-trapping screws. Don’t Do Use longer than necessary duct runs with many elbows. Keep duct runs as straight as possible. Don’t Do Allow crushed or clogged ducts and vent. Clean all old ducts before installing your new dryer. Be sure vent flap opens and closes freely. 9 Care and Cleaning Control Panel Care Dryer Care Clean the control panel with a soft damp cloth. Do not use any abrasive powders or cleaning pads. Tumbler If the tumbler becomes stained by a crayon, ink pen or other item inadvertently left in a garment, clean the tumbler with an all purpose cleaner such as: Fantastik, Soft Scrub or Formula 409®.* Then tumble old towels or rags to remove any excess stain or cleaning substance. Cabinet Care Simply wipe off any marks with soap and water, followed with an appliance wax if desired. Exhaust System Cleaning While the lint filter will catch most of the lint from the load, some will get through and may buildup in the ductwork. It is important to completely inspect and clean all lint accumulation from the interior of the ductwork once a year to maintain drying performance. The exhaust hood at the outside of the home should be cleaned more frequently to ensure the damper opens and closes freely. Washer Care Lint Filter The SELF-CLEAN LINT FILTER in the washer is located under the agitator and cleans itself. During the wash and rinse portion of the cycle, lint is collected on the filter. The filter is then flushed automatically during the spin and drain. Refer to the Installation Instructions for more details on proper exhausting. Interior *Brand names are trademarks of the respective manufacturers. Hard water deposits may be removed, if needed, using a recommended cleaner labeled washer safe. Storing the Washer and Dryer Washers can be damaged if water is not removed from hoses and internal components before storage. Prepare the washer and dryer for storage as follows: • Advance the cycle control knob to the final spin of the Regular Fabrics cycle and lower drain hose to drain any water that may be in the drain hose. • Select the Regular Fabrics cycle and add one cup of bleach or white vinegar to a full load of warm or hot water without clothes. Run the washer through a complete cycle. • Disconnect the washer and dryer from the electrical supply and leave the washer lid open to let air circulate inside the tub. • Turn the water faucets off and disconnect the inlet hoses. • Clean the dryer tumbler with an all purpose cleaner such as Fantastik or Formula 409®* and disconnect from the power supply.
