Special
Features ...............................................
Fabric Softener Dispenser
This dispenser automatically releases liquid fabric softener at the proper time during the cycle. To use, follow
these steps:
1. Pour liquid fabric softener into the dispenser using
the amount recommended on the package.
2. Add warm water to the dispenser until it reaches the
fill line.
NOTE:
• 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.
• 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.

Loading
• Put dry, unfolded clothes loosely in the tub, up to the
Detergent
top row of holes for a maximum load.
• Do not wrap large items like sheets around the agitatot.
• 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 65° E
• 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.
• For best results, add the detergent to washtub before
• 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.)
• Wipe up any detergent spills on the washer,
