LOCATION REQUIREMENTS
INSTALLATION SPACING FOR RECESSED
AREA AND CLOSET INSTALLATIONS
The following spacing dimensions are recommended for this washer. This washer has
been tested for installation with spacing of 0˝
(0 cm) clearance on the sides. Recommended spacing should be considered for the following reasons:
• Additional spacing should be considered
for ease of installation and servicing.
• Additional spacing should be considered
on all sides of the washer to reduce noise
transfer.
• For closet installation with a door, minimum
ventilation openings in the top and bottom
of the door are required. Louvered doors
with equivalent ventilation openings are
acceptable.
• Companion appliance spacing should also
be considered.
Selecting the proper location for your washer
improves performance and minimizes noise
and possible washer “walk.”
The washer can be installed in a basement,
laundry room, closet, or recessed area. See
“Drain System,” page 2-3.
IMPORTANT: Do not install or store the washer where it will be exposed to the weather.
Proper installation is your responsibility.
You will need:
• A water heater set to deliver 120°F (49°C)
water to the washer.
• A grounded electrical outlet located within 4 ft (1.2 m) of where the power cord is
attached to the back of the washer. See
“Electrical Requirements,” page 2-4.
• Hot and cold water faucets located within
3 ft (90 cm) of the hot and cold water fill
valves, and water pressure of 20-100 psi
(138-690 kPa) for best performance.
• A level floor with a maximum slope of
1˝(2.5 cm) under entire washer. Installing the washer on carpeting is not recommended.
• A sturdy floor to support the washer
weight (washer, water and load) of 315 lbs
(143 kgs).
Do not store or operate your washer in temperatures at or below 32°F (0°C). Some water can remain in the washer and can cause
damage in low temperatures.

ELECTRICAL REQUIREMENTS
WARNING
GROUNDING INSTRUCTIONS
For a grounded, cord-connected washer:
This washer must be grounded. In the event
of a malfunction or breakdown, grounding
will reduce the risk of electrcal shock by
providing a path of least resistance for electric current. This washer is equipped with a
cord having an equipment-grounding conductor and a grounding plug. The plug must
be plugged into an appropriate outlet that
is properly installed and grounded in accordance with all local codes and ordinances.
WARNING: Improper connection of the
equipment-grounding conductor can result
in a risk of electric shock. Check with a qualified electrician or serviceman if you are in
doubt as to whether the appliance is properly
grounded.
Do not modify the plug provided with the
appliance—if it will not fit the outlet, have a
proper outlet installed by a qualified electrician.
For a permanently connected washer:
This washer must be connected to a grounded metal, permanent wiring system, or an
equipment-grounding conductor must be
run with the circuit conductors and connected to the equipment-grounding terminal or
lead on the appliance.
Electrical Shock Hazard
Plug into a grounded 3 prong outlet.
Do not remove ground prong.
Do not use an adapter.
Do not use an extension cord.
Failure to follow these instructions can
result in death, fire, or electrical shock.
• A 120 volt, 60 Hz., AC only, 15- or 20amp, fused electrical supply is required. A
time-delay fuse or circuit breaker is recommended. It is recommended that a separate circuit serving only this appliance be
provided.
• This washer is equipped with a power supply cord having a 3 prong grounding plug.
• To minimize possible shock hazard, the
cord must be plugged into a mating, 3
prong, grounding-type outlet, grounded
in accordance with local codes and ordinances. If a mating outlet is not available,
it is the personal responsibility and obligation of the customer to have the properly grounded outlet installed by a qualified
electrician.
• If codes permit and a separate ground wire
is used, it is recommended that a qualified
electrician determine that the ground path
is adequate.
• Do not ground to a gas pipe.
• Check with a qualified electrician if you are
not sure the washer is properly grounded.
• Do not have a fuse in the neutral or ground
circuit.

PRODUCT OPERATION
THEORY OF OPERATION
Basket—The basket is designed with a traditional balance ring at the top and a flotation
chamber at the base. The outside surface of
the basket is punched to allow lint to catch on
the holes during the wash cycle. When the
water drains, the lint will be flushed off and
out the drain.
INTRODUCTION
The Bravos™ Automatic Washer represents a
new design that differs from the traditional top
load machine. This washer operates without a
transmission, motor coupler, belt, basket drive
tube, or brake assembly.
NEW COMPONENTS
Balance Ring
The washer has the following new components:
Drive Motor—The drive motor is an electronically commutated direct drive 3-phase brushless DC design that moves the impeller/agitator
and spin basket without the use of a transmission. The motor is comprised of a stator that
is bolted to the base of the washer tub and a
rotor that is attached to the drive shaft. The
motor direction and speed is controlled by the
machine/motor controller, and is monitored by
a rotor position sensor, (RPS), located on the
stator.
Drain Pump
Basket
Balance Ring
Flotation Chamber
Basket Hub—The basket hub consists of two
splined components that engage or disengage
based on the position of the basket in the
vertical direction. The outer hub component
is fastened to the bottom of the basket, while
the inner component is attached to the end of
the drive shaft.
Recirculation Pump
Inner Hub
(Drive Shaft)
Drive Motor
Outer Hub
(Basket)
Continued on the next page.
3-1
As the tub fills with water, the basket begins to
float and to rise. The splined hub components
now separate, and allow the basket to move
independently of the drive shaft.
Lid Lock Mechanism—Since this washer
does not utilize a brake, a lid lock is used to
prevent access during the spin cycles. During
the drain and spin portions of the cycle, a lid
lock mechanism will lock the lid. The lid locks
are based on cycle phase. In general, the lid
locks when the basket spins greater than 23
rpm. After main wash, the lid is locked, and
remains locked until the end of the cycle. The
lid must be closed for the machine to fill, wash,
drain, or spin. Magnets in the washer lid close
a reed switch in the lid lock. This acts as the
lid switch.

WASHER USE
NOTE: Your washer model may differ slightly.
STARTING THE WASHER
The following is a guide to starting the washer.
Periodic references to other sections of this
manual provide more detailed information.
WARNING
USING THE PROPER DETERGENT
Use only High Efficiency detergents. The package for this type of detergent will be marked
“HE” or “High Efficiency.” This wash system,
along with less water, will create too much
sudsing with a regular non-HE detergent. Using regular detergent will likely result in washer
errors, longer cycle times and reduced rinsing
performance. It may also result in component
failures and noticeable mold or mildew. HE detergents are made to produce the right amount
of suds for the best performance. Follow the
manufacturer’s instructions to determine the
amount of detergent to use.
Fire Hazard
Never place items in the washer that
are dampened with gasoline or other
flammable fluids.
No washer can completely remove oil.
Do not dry anything that has ever had
any type of oil on it (including cooking
oils).
Doing so can result in death, explosion,
or fire.
Use only “HE” High Efficiency detergent.
3-3

3.
Place a load of sorted clothes into the
washer.
• Load evenly to maintain washer balance. Mix large and small items. Items
should move easily through the wash
water.
• Load only to the top of the basket as
shown. Overloading can cause poor
cleaning. Items need to move easily
through the wash water.
4.
Pour measured powdered or liquid High
Efficiency (HE) detergent into the detergent
dispenser. Always use the detergent dispenser, and do not put detergent directly
into the wash tub or onto clothes in the

• Do you hear clicking or other noises when
the cycle changes from washing to draining or spinning?
When the drive system shifts or the washer
basket settles between cycles you may hear
noises that are different from your previous
washer. These are normal washer noises.
• Is the washer gurgling or humming?
When the washer drains, the pump will make
a continuous humming with periodic gurgling
or surging sounds as the final amounts of
water are removed. This is normal.
• Are you washing a small load?
You will hear more splashing sounds when
washing small loads. This is normal.
• The washer basket moves while washing.
This is normal.

The drain hose should be pulled from the
washer cabinet and secured to the drainpipe
or laundry tub. See “Connect The Drain
Hose,” page 2-5, and “Secure the Drain
Hose,” page 2-7.
• Is the sink or drain clogged?
Sink and drainpipe must be able to carry
away 17 gal. (64 L) of water per minute. If
sink or drainpipe is clogged or slow, water
can back up out of drainpipe or sink.
• Is water splashing off the tub ring or the
load?
The wash load should be balanced and not
overloaded. If the wash load is unbalanced
or overloaded, incoming water can deflect
off the load.
• Is the washer properly installed?
The washer must be level. The feet should
be properly installed and the nuts tightened.
See “Level the Washer,” page 2-8.
• Was the cycle interrupted and then the
Stain Cycle option selected?

the water temperature may decrease for hot
and warm temperatures. This is normal.
• Is the top of drain hose lower than the
control knobs on washer?
The top of the drain hose must be at least
39˝ (99 cm) above the floor. See “Drain
System,” page 2-3.
• Do you have an ENERGY STAR® qualified
washer?
The wash water temperatures may feel cooler
to you than those of your previous washer.
This is normal.
• Does the drain hose fit too tightly in the
standpipe, or is it taped to the standpipe?
The drain hose should be loose yet fit securely. Do not seal the drain hose with tape.
The hose needs an air gap. See “Installation
Instructions,” page 2-5.
• Does the wash water temperature feel
lower than usual?
As washing progresses, the wash temperature will decrease slightly for hot and warm
washes. This is normal.
To reduce wrinkling, the warm rinse is regulated to be cooler than the warm wash.
Washer won’t drain or spin; water remains
in washer
• Is the drain hose clogged, or the end of
the drain hose more than 96˝ (244 cm)
above the floor?

it to be included in a wash cycle. The Stain
Cycle option should be started on a dry load
only. Stain Cycle should not be selected after
the tub has started filling with water.
The Stain Cycle option is a default in the
Super Wash cycle and may be added to
other cycles.
CLOTHING CARE
Load too wet
• Did you use the right cycle for the load
being washed?
Select a higher spin speed.
• Did you use a cold rinse?
Cold rinses leave loads wetter than warm
rinses. This is normal.
• Did you wash an extra large load?
A large unbalanced load could result in a
reduced spin speed and wet clothes at the
end of the cycle. Evenly distribute the load
and make sure the height of the load does
not exceed the top row of basket holes.
Residue or lint on load
• Did you add detergent to the dispenser?
For best results, use the dispenser to dissolve the detergent.
• Did you sort properly?
Sort lint givers (towels, chenille) from lint
takers (corduroy, synthetics). Also sort by
color.
• Did you overload the washer?
The wash load must be balanced and not
overloaded. Clothes should move freely. Lint
or powdered detergent can be trapped in
the load if the washer is overloaded. Wash
smaller loads. See “Starting The Washer,”
page 3-3 for maximum load size.
• Did you use enough detergent?
Follow detergent manufacturer’s directions.
Use enough detergent to hold the lint in the
water.
• Did you line dry your clothing?
If so, you can expect some lint on the clothing.
The air movement and tumbling of a dryer
removes lint from the load.
• Was paper or tissue left in pockets?
• Is your water colder than 60°F (15.6°C)?
Wash water colder than 60°F (15.6°C) may
not completely dissolve the detergent.
• Did you use the proper Soil Level and
Wash Cycle for the load?
Reducing wash time (duration) and wash
speed are ways to reduce lint.
• Did you add detergent to the dispenser?
For best results, use the dispenser to dissolve the detergent.
3-18
Load is wrinkled, twisted or tangled
• Did you unload the washer promptly?
Unload the washer as soon as it stops.
• Did you use the right cycle for the load
being washed?
To reduce wrinkling, tangling and twisting,
select a cycle with low wash and spin speeds,
such as Delicate, Handwash or Wrinkle Control.
• Did you overload the washer?
The wash load must be balanced and not
overloaded. Loads should move freely during
washing to reduce wrinkling, tangling and
twisting.
• Was the wash water warm enough to relax
wrinkles?
If safe for the load, use warm or hot wash
water. Use cold rinse water.
• Are the hot and cold water hoses reversed?
Check that the hot and cold water hoses
are connected to the correct faucets. If the
hot and cold water inlet hoses are reversed,
the washer will display an “HC” error code
at the end of the cycle. See “Connect the
Inlet Hoses,” page 2-6. A hot rinse followed
by spin will cause wrinkling.
Stains, gray whites, dingy colors
• Did you properly sort the load?
Dye transfer can occur when mixing whites
and colors in a load. Sort dark clothes from
whites and lights.
• Was the wash temperature too low?
Use hot or warm washes if safe for the load.
Make sure your hot water system is adequate
to provide a hot water wash.
• Did you use enough detergent, or do you
have hard water?
Use more detergent for washing heavy soils
in cold or hard water. Water temperature
should be at least 60°F (15.6°C) for soap to
dissolve and work properly. For best performance, use the detergent manufacturer’s
recommended amounts.
• Did you follow the manufacturer’s directions when adding detergent and fabric
softener?
Measure detergent and fabric softener. Use
enough detergent to remove soil and hold
it in suspension. Dilute fabric softener and
add to the rinse portion of a cycle only. Do
not drip fabric softener onto clothes.
• Is there above average iron (rust) in water?
You may need to install an iron filter.
• Did you add detergent to the dispenser?
For best results, use the dispenser to dissolve the detergent.
• Did you add fabric softener directly to
the load?
Use your fabric softener dispenser. Do not
drip fabric softener onto clothes.
• Did you use a fabric softener dispensing
ball?
Use the fabric softener dispenser provided
with the washer. Dispensing balls will not
operate correctly with this washer.
• Did you unload the washer promptly?
To avoid dye transfer, unload the washer as
soon as it stops.
• Did you add detergent, chlorine bleach or
fabric softener too late in the cycle?
Detergent, chlorine bleach, and fabric softener should be added to the dispensers
before starting the washer.
• Did you use Quick Wash on a large load?
Quick Wash is designed to wash only a few
items for best results.
3-19
Garments damaged
• Were sharp items removed from pockets
before washing?
Empty pockets, zip zippers, snap or hook
fasteners before washing to avoid snagging
and tearing of load.
• Were strings and sashes tied to avoid
tangling?
Straps and strings can easily become entangled in the load, causing strain on seams
and tearing.
• Were items damaged before washing?
Mend rips and broken threads in seams
before washing.
• Did you overload the washer?
The wash load must be balanced and not
overloaded. Loads should move freely during
washing.
• Did you add chlorine bleach properly?
Do not pour chlorine bleach directly onto load.
Wipe up bleach spills. Undiluted bleach will
damage fabrics. Do not place load items on
top of the bleach dispenser when loading
and unloading the washer (on some models).
Do not use more than the manufacturer’s
recommended amount for a full load.
• Did you follow the garment manufacturer’s care label instructions?

DIAGNOSTIC GUIDE
ACTIVATION OF AUTOMATIC
DIAGNOSTIC TEST MODE
1. Be sure the washer is in standby mode
(plugged in with all indicators off, or with
only the Clean indicator on).
2. Select any one button (except POWER,
START, and PAUSE/CANCEL) and follow the steps below, using the same button (remember the button):
Before servicing, check the following:
• Make sure there is power at the wall outlet.
• Has a household fuse blown or circuit breaker tripped? Time delay fuse?
• Are both hot and cold water faucets open
and water supply hoses unobstructed?
• All tests/checks should be made with a
VOM (volt-ohm-milliammeter) or DVM (digital-voltmeter) having a sensitivity of 20,000
ohms per volt DC or greater. NOTE: Avoid
using large diameter probes when checking harness connectors as the probes may
damage the connectors upon insertion.
• Check all connections before replacing
components. Look for broken or loose
wires, failed terminals, or wires not pressed
into connectors far enough.
• A potential cause of a control not functioning is corrosion on connections. Observe
connections and check for continuity with
an ohmmeter.
• Connectors: Look at top of connector.
Check for broken or loose wires. Check
for wires not pressed into connector far
enough to engage metal barbs.
• Resistance checks must be made with
washer unplugged or power disconnected.
