Additional
safetyinstructions
andyourresponsibilities
• ALWAYS shut off the gas valve
before leaving on vacation.
• ALWAYS unplug the power supply
cord before attempting to service the
Thin Twin. ® Shut off GAS VALVE if
yours is a gas dryer.
• DO NOT machine wash or dry glass
fiber materials. Small particles can
stick to fabrics laundered in following
loads and cause skin irritation.
• HAZARDOUS FUMES can be
formed if chlorine bleach is used in
the same wash as ammonia or acids
such as vinegar or rust remover.
• ALWAYS store detergent, laundry
aids and other materials in a cool, dry
place where children can't reach them
- in a locked cabinet if possible.
• ALWAYS read and follow instructions
on packages of detergent and laundry
aids - especially warnings and
precautions.
• NEVER operate the Thin Twin if...
- it is not working right.
- it is damaged.
- parts are missing.
- all panels are not in place.
• You are responsible for making
sure that your Thin Twin:
- is properly maintained.
- is properly installed and
leveled in a well ventilated room on
a floor that can support the weight.*
- is located in an area where the
temperature is above 45°F (7.2°C)
because the dryer will not operate
properly at cold temperatures and
freezing temperatures can damage
the washer.
- is connected to the proper electrical
supply, outlet, water supply, plumbing
fixtures, drain and dryer exhausting
system.*
- is not installed against drapes or
curtains.*
- is used only for jobs normally
expected of home automatic Thin
Twins.
*Refer to the Installation Instructions for
complete information.
When not washing, keep both water
faucets turned off. This takes the pressure off the water inlet valve and hoses.

Instructions
The drawings in this book may vary slightly from your washer 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
to wash.
• Set the knob on EX SMALL (a few
small items), MEDIUM or LARGE
(a full load).
NOTE" For best washing results, items
should move freely in the washer. Do
not overload the washer or choose a
water level that is too low for your wash
load. For best results with permanent
press clothes, use the LARGE water
level. Reduce wash time when using EX
SMALL or SMALL water level settings.
2. Select water temperature
• 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
the PERMANENT PRESS or KNITS
GENTLE Cycles.
For heavily soiled permanent press
or knit clothes, pre-wash or pre-soak
before washing in warm water.
ALWAYS use cold rinse water for
permanent press fabrics.
3. Select cycle and wash time
Start the washer
• Push in the Cycle Control Knob and
turn it clockwise.
• Stop when the indicator on the knob's
outer ring points to the number in the
wash cycle you want. The numbers
are minutes of wash time.
• Start the washer by pulling out the
Cycle Control Knob. The washer will
fill to the selected water level with the
selected wash water temperature.
After filling, the washer will agitate for
the selected number of minutes.
• To stop the washer at any time,
push in the Cycle Control Knob. To
restart the washer, pull out the
Cycle Control Knob.
Whathappensin eachcycle
Each cycle has different agitation and
spin speeds designed for different kinds
of fabrics.
Numbers on the dial in each cycle are
the minutes of wash agitation time.
When the Cycle Contro_ Knob is set
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.
Gentle Wash System
For better fabric care in the REGULAR
and PERMANENT PRESS Cycles, the
agitation speed is reduced during the
last few minutes of wash agitation time.
Washer lid latch
To hold the washer lid up, lift the lid until
it snaps past the latch under the control
panel. (See front cover.)

Instructions
Theautomaticcycles
The automatic cycles allow you to
select the degree of dryness you prefer
for the clothes being dried.
The automatic DRY-MISER ® control
is a thermostat that senses the dryer air
temperature. The dryer automatically
shuts off when the selected dryness
is reached.
The Cycle Control Knob will not move
until the clothes load is almost dry, or
the Cool-Down portion of the cycle has
been reached. After the Cool-Down
portion is complete, the Cycle Control
Knob automatically moves to an OFF
area and tumbling stops.
Use AUTOMATIC REGULAR to dry
heavy and mediumweight cotton items.
The load tumbles without heat during
the last 5 minutes. This helps make the
load easier to handle.
Use AUTOMATIC PERMANENT
PRESS to dry permanent press, knits
and other synthetic items. The load
tumbles without heat during the last 10
minutes. This helps keep wrinkles from
setting in and makes the load easier
to handle.
For the first few loads, set the Cycle
Control Knob to point to the* in either
automatic cycle. When the dryer stops,

IfYouNeedServiceOrAssistance
We suggest
youfollow
thesesteps:
1. Before calling for assistance...
Performance problems often result from
little things you can find and fix yourself
without tools of any kind.
If your washer does not fill:
• Is the power supply cord plugged into
a live circuit with the proper voltage?
• Are both water faucets open?
• Have you checked your home's main
fuses or circuit breaker box?
• Are the water supply hoses kinked?
• Is the Cycle Control Knob set and
pulled out?
If your washer does not spin:
• Is the lid closed?
• Is the power supply cord plugged into
a live circuit with the proper voltage?
• Have you checked your home's main
fuses or circuit breaker box?
If your washer drains at the
wrong time:
• The drain hose should be at least 28
inches above the floor and secured.
• The drain hose should not fit tightly in
the drain pipe.
• Make sure that the Cycle Control
Knob is pointing to a number in the
cycle.
Make sure the drain hose is higher
than the water level in the washer.
If it isn't:
• The washer may seem to be draining
during wash and rinse cycles.
• Water can siphon out.
(See Installation Instructions )
If your washer stops during
a cycle:
• Remember, the washer pauses briefly
at different times in each cycle. These
pauses are normal.
18
If your dryer does not run:
• Is the power supply plugged into a live
circuit with the proper voltage?
• Is the door closed tightly?
• Did you push the START Button?
• Have you checked your home's main
fuses or circuit breaker box?
If your dryer does not heat:
• The FLUFF AIR setting is without
heat.
• The last 5 minutes of the heated cycle
settings are without heat.
• An e_ectric dryer circuit uses 2 breakers or 2 fuses. If one breaker is tripped
or one fuse is blown, the dryer may
run, but not heat.
If drying time seems too long:
• Is the gas turned on? If not, turn the
Control Knob to OFE Turn on gas.
Wait 5 minutes. Reset controls and
start.
• Is the lint screen clean? See pages
16-17 of this book for cleaning
instructions.
