IMPORTANT
PERSONAL
SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
WARNING
- To reduce the risk of fire, electric shock, or injury
ance, follow basic precautions,
including
the following:
l.
Read all instructions before using the appliance.
"2. To avoid the possibility" of fire or explosion:
a, Do not wash items tbat have been previously
cleaned in, washed in, soaked in, or spotted with
gasoline, dry-eleaning solvents, other flammable
or explosive substances as they give off vapors
that could ignite or explode,
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
washer until all traces of these liquids or solids
and their fumes have been removed.
There are many highly flammable items used in
homes, such as: aeetone, denatured alcohol,
gasoline, kerosene, some liquid household
cleaners,
spot removers,
waxes
and some
wax removers.
turpentine,
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,
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 eombination 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.
3.
Do not allow children to play on or in the appliante. Close supervision of children is necessary
when the appliance is used near children.
4.
to persons
using
Before the appliance is removed
this appli-
from service or
discarded, remove the door to the washing eompartment.
5. Do not reach into the applianee if the agitator is
moving.
6. Do not install or store this appliance where it will
be exposed to the weather.
7. Do not tamper with controls.
8. Do not repair or replace any part of the appliance
or attempt any servicing unless specifically reeommended 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.
10. 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 instruetions for grounding this appliance.

USING LAUNDRY
ADDITIVES
Bleach
Add liquid chlorine bleach to file dispenser before
adding the clothes. Properly diluted bleach will be
added automatically to the wash water.
When using this bleach, carefully measure the recommended amount. General recommendations are 1/8 cup
for each '2 gallons of wash water. Amount of wash water
in: MINI-FILL - 8 gallons (7 Imperial gallons; 30
liters); SMALL - 12 gallons (10 Imperial gallons; 4,5
liters); MEDIUM - I4 gallons (12 Imperial gallons; 53
liters); LARGE
17 gallons (14 hnperial gallons; 64
liters); EXTP,A LARGE - 19 gallons (16 Imperial gallons; 72 liters).
Be careful whenever
you use liquid chlorine
bleach. It is a powerful chemical and can cause
fabric damage, such as tears or color loss, if not
used properly. Do not pour directly on fabries.
Always dilute with water. Wipe up spills with a
paper towel.
Non-Chlorine
bleach may be added with the detergent. Follow the instructions on the package. If used
improperly, fabric damage may occur, such as color loss.
Do not put granular bleach or detergent in bleach dispenser.
Detergent
Use either liquid or granular iaundn7 detergent. Add
measured amount of detergent
to washtub before
loading.
Read the manufacturer's
instructions and use the cor-
rect amount. Most instructions are for washing an
"average" load. If the size of the load is extra large, the
degree of soil is heavSer than average and the water is
harder than 6 grains per gallon, more detergent should
be used.
Wipe up any spills of liquid laund_" detergent

rie softener to the cup located in the top of the agitator.
The cup may be lifted out for filling. Add warm water
to bring liquid level to the indicated FILL LINE in the
cup.
Diluted fabric softener will automatically be
added to the rinse. (Always dilute fabric softener
with water.)

Wash water temperature is critical to good laundry
results. Household water heaters should be set to deliver a minimum of 140° E (60° C.) water to the washer

STORING THE WASHER
MAINTAINING
WASHER
Washers can be damaged if water is not removed from
hoses and internal components before storage. Prepare

• Press the Regular Fabrics pad and add one cup of
bleach or while vinegar to a-full load of warm or hot
water without clothes. Run the washer through a complete cycle.
• Clean the control panel with a soft damp cloth and
glass cleaner. Do not use any abrasive powders or
cleaning pads.
• Turn the water faucets off and disconnect the inlet
hoses.
• Clean the cabinet with soap and water followed with
an appliance wax, if desire&
• The SELF-CLEAN LINT FILTER is located under
the agitator on the bottom of the washtub. The lint
filter_in this washer cleans itself. During the wash
and rinse portion of the cycle, lint is eolle&ed on the

the spin and drain.
• Press the SPIN cycle and lower drain hose to drain
a V water that m@ be in the drain hose.
