WASHER SAFETY
Your safety and the safety of others are very important.
We have provided many important safety messages in this manual and on your appliance. Always read and obey all
safety messages.
This is the safety alert symbol.
This symbol alerts you to potential hazards that can kill or hurt you and others.
All safety messages will follow the safety alert symbol and either the word “DANGER” or
“WARNING.” These words mean:
You can be killed or seriously injured if you don't
immediately follow instructions.
You can be killed or seriously injured if you don't
follow instructions.
All safety messages will tell you what the potential hazard is, tell you how to reduce the chance of injury, and tell you
what can happen if the instructions are not followed.
IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
WARNING: To reduce the risk of fire, electric shock, or injury to persons when using the washer, follow basic
precautions, including the following:
■
Read all instructions before using the washer.
Do not wash articles 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.
■ 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.
■
Do not allow children to play on or in the washer. Close
supervision of children is necessary when the washer is
used near children.
■
Before the washer is removed from service or discarded,
remove the door or lid.
■
Do not reach into the washer if the drum, tub or agitator
is moving.
■
Do not install or store the washer where it will be
exposed to the weather.
■
Do not tamper with controls.
■
Do not repair or replace any part of the washer or
attempt any servicing unless specifically recommended
in this manual or in published user-repair instructions
that you understand and have the skills to carry out.
■
See “Electrical Requirements” for grounding instructions.
■
■
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 the
washing machine, 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.

Understanding Washer Cycles
When the Cycle Control knob is set to a number and pulled out,
the washer fills (to the selected load size/water level) before
agitation and timing start. The washer begins agitating
immediately after filling; agitation occurs with the washer lid up or
down.
After agitation starts, the Cycle Control knob turns clockwise until
it points to an OFF area and the cycle ends.
NOTE: The washer pauses briefly throughout each cycle. These
pauses are normal for washer operation.

Normal Washer Sounds
Your new washer may make sounds your old one didn’t. Because
the sounds might be unfamiliar, you may be concerned about
them. These sounds are normal.
During washing
When you select a small load size setting, your washer has a
lower water level. This can cause a clicking sound from the upper
part of the agitator.
During drain
If water is drained quickly from your washer (depending on your
installation), you may hear air being pulled through the pump
during the end of draining.
After drain and before spin
When the cycle changes from draining to spinning, you may hear
gears engaging.
5
Drop a sorted load of clothes loosely into your washer.
Starting Your Washer
■
Load evenly to maintain washer balance. Mix large and
small items.
■
Items should move easily through the wash water.
Overloading can cause poor cleaning.
■
To reduce wrinkling of permanent press clothes and some
synthetic knits, use a higher water level to provide more
space (see step 5).
2. (OPTIONAL) Pour measured liquid chlorine bleach into the
liquid chlorine bleach dispenser (on some models). Bleach
will be dispensed automatically during the wash part of the
cycle.
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.
WARNING
■
Never use more than 1 cup (250 mL) for a full load. Use
less with a smaller load size.
■
Follow the manufacturer’s directions for safe use.
■
To avoid spilling, use a cup with a pouring spout. Do not
let bleach splash, drip, or run down into the washer
basket.
■
Use only liquid chlorine bleach in this dispenser.
NOTE: On models without a bleach dispenser, see “Adding
Liquid Chlorine Bleach.”
3. (OPTIONAL) Pour measured liquid fabric softener into the
liquid fabric softener dispenser (on some models). Softener is
added automatically during the rinse portion of the cycle.
Electrical Shock Hazard
Plug into a grounded 3 prong outlet.
Do not remove ground prong.
Do not use an adapter.
Dilute liquid fabric softener by filling the dispenser with warm
water until liquid reaches the crossbar in the opening.
Do not use an extension cord.
■
Do not spill or drip any fabric softener on the clothes.
■
Use only liquid fabric softener in this dispenser.
Failure to follow these instructions can result in
death, fire, or electrical shock.
1. Measure detergent and pour it into the washer. If desired, add
powdered or liquid color safe bleach. Add extra detergent for
the Super Wash cycle (on some models).
6
NOTE: On models without a fabric softener dispenser, see
“Adding Liquid Fabric Softener.”
4. Close the washer lid.
5. Turn the WATER LEVEL selector to the correct setting for your
wash load and the type of fabric being washed.
■
Choose a water level that allows the load to move freely
for best fabric care. See “Loading”.
■
You may change the water level after the washer has
started filling by turning the selector to a different setting.
6. Set the TEMPERATURE selector (on some models) to the
correct setting for the type of fabric and soils being washed.
Use the warmest water safe for fabric. Follow garment label
instructions.
NOTE: On models with temperature selections in the Cycle
Control knob, see “Cycle Time and Temperature Options” in
the “Selecting a Cycle and Time” section.
Water Temp
Use For
Hot
111°F (44°C)

Colors that bleed or fade
Light soils
NOTE: In wash water temperatures colder than 70ºF
(21ºC), detergents do not dissolve well. Soils can be difficult
to remove. Some fabrics can retain wear wrinkles and have
increased pilling (the formation of small lint-like balls on the
surface of garments).
7. Push in the Cycle Control knob and turn it clockwise to the
wash cycle you want. Reduce the wash time when using a
small load size setting. See “Selecting a Cycle and Time.”
NOTE: This manual covers several different models. The washer
you purchased may vary from the model shown and will not have
all of the cycles described.
Cycle Control knob
Normal cycle
This cycle features high-speed agitation followed by a brief
period of low-speed agitations. High spin speed shorten drying
time. Use this cycle for cleaning cotton and linen fabrics. Select
up to 14 minutes of wash time, depending on whether your load
is heavily, moderately, or lightly soiled.
Super Wash - Select the 18-minute Super Wash cycle to wash
heavily soiled loads that need maximum soil removal. Use two
times the recommended amount of detergent for this cycle.
Permanent Press cycle
Pull out the Cycle Control knob to start the washer.
To stop or restart your washer
■ To stop the washer at any time, push in the Cycle Control
knob.
■
To restart the washer, close the lid (if open) and pull out
the Cycle Control knob.
8. (OPTIONAL) If desired, add measured liquid fabric softener to
the final rinse water. See “Adding Liquid Fabric Softener.”
Selecting a Cycle and Time
This section describes the available wash cycles and will help
you make the best cycle selections for your wash loads. Each
cycle is designed for different types of fabric and soil levels.
■ The washer pauses briefly throughout each cycle. These
pauses are normal. Refer to “Normal Washer Sounds” to
learn more about the sounds you may hear during a wash
cycle.
■
Refer to “Understanding Washer Cycles” to learn what
happens during a wash cycle.
This cycle starts with high-speed agitation then steps down to
low-speed agitation for cleaning permanent press blends and
synthetic fabrics. To minimize wrinkling, this cycle features a
cool-down rinse and low spin speeds. Select up to 10 minutes of
wash time, depending on whether your load is heavily,
moderately, or lightly soiled.
Delicates
This cycle features low-speed agitation for gentle soil removal.
Low spin speeds help reduce wrinkling. Use this 6-minute cycle
for cleaning lightly to moderately soiled delicate items and
washable knits.
Knits & Delicate
This cycle features low-speed agitation for gentle soil removal.
Low spin speeds help reduce wrinkling. Use this 8-minute cycle
for cleaning lightly to moderately soiled delicate items and
washable knits.
Soak cycle
This cycle features brief periods of agitation and soak time to
help remove heavy soils and stains that need pretreatment. Use
warm water when soaking laundry. Hot water can set stains. Use
the amount of detergent or presoak additive recommended by
the manufacturer. After the Soak cycle ends, add detergent and
set a new wash cycle.
7
Cycle Time and Temperature Options
Some models have the water temperature included in the cycle
selections of the Cycle Control knob.
NOTE: Undiluted bleach will damage any fabric it touches. The
damage appears as rips, holes, tears, or color loss and may not
show up until several washings later.
Adding Liquid Fabric Softener
Always dilute fabric softener with ½ to 1 cup (125 to 250 mL)
warm water. Undiluted fabric softener can stain fabrics.
■ Add diluted fabric softener only in the final rinse.
■
Fabric softener should not be mixed with other laundry
products. Greasy stains can form. To remove greasy stains,
wet the stain and rub with liquid detergent or a bar of soap.
Rewash.
■
Too much fabric softener can make some items (diapers and
towels) nonabsorbent. If this happens, use less fabric
softener, or do not use it every time.
WASHER CARE
To select different wash time and temperature combinations:
First select the water temperature (HOT, WARM or COLD) then
turn to the new wash time. For example, for 14 minutes of wash
time in the Normal cycle with Cold water:
1. Push in the Cycle Control knob and turn it clockwise to the
Cold setting.
2. Pull out the Cycle Control knob and allow washer to fill.
3. When the washer has filled, push in and turn the Cycle
Control knob to 14 minutes of wash time.
4. Pull out the Cycle Control knob to start washer.
Rinse and Spin
When using extra detergent for heavily soiled clothes, or washing
special-care items, you may find an extra rinse and spin is
needed.
1. Push in the Cycle Control knob and turn it clockwise to any of
the Rinse settings.
2. Pull out the Cycle Control knob. The washer fills to the
selected load size, agitates, drains, and spins.
Drain and Spin
A drain and spin may help shorten drying times for some heavy
fabrics or special-care items by removing excess water.
1. Push in the Cycle Control knob and turn it clockwise to any of
the Spin settings.
2. Pull out the Cycle Control knob. The washer drains, then
spins.
Adding Liquid Chlorine Bleach
Always measure liquid chlorine bleach. Do not guess. Never use
more than 1 cup (250 mL) for a full load. Follow manufacturer’s
directions for safe use. Use a cup with a pouring spout to avoid
spilling.
1. Let the washer fill and begin agitating the load.
2. Add bleach to the wash cycle so it can be removed in the
rinse cycle. Pour bleach around the agitator, not directly on
the load.
■ Follow directions on the care labels. Do not use chlorine
bleach on wool, silk, spandex, acetates, or some flameretardant fabrics.
■
8
When soaking with chlorine bleach, add detergent to
soak water.
Cleaning Your Washer
Cleaning the exterior
Use a soft, damp cloth or sponge to wipe up any spills such as
detergent or bleach. Occasionally wipe the outside of your
washer to keep it looking new.
Cleaning the interior
Clean your washer interior by mixing 1 cup (250 mL) of chlorine
bleach and 2 cups (500 mL) of detergent. Pour this into your
washer and run it through a complete cycle using hot water.
Repeat this process if necessary.
NOTE: Remove any hard water deposits using only cleaners
labeled as washer safe.
Cleaning the liquid fabric softener dispenser
Flush dispenser periodically with warm water, as shown. Remove
the dispenser by grasping the top of the dispenser with both
hands and squeezing and pushing upwards with thumbs. Clean
the dispenser by rinsing it under a water faucet. Replace it after
cleaning.
NOTE: Do not wash clothes with this dispenser removed. Do not
add detergent or bleach to this dispenser; it is for liquid fabric
softener use only.
Water Inlet Hoses
Replace inlet hoses after five years of use to reduce the risk of
hose failure. Periodically inspect and replace inlet hoses if
bulges, kinks, cuts, wear or leaks are found.
When replacing your inlet hoses, mark the date of replacement
on the label with a permanent marker.
Vacation, Storage and Moving Care
TROUBLESHOOTING
First try the solutions suggested here and possibly avoid
the cost of a service call...
Washer won’t fill, rinse or agitate
■
Install and store your washer where it will not freeze. Because
some water may stay in the hoses, freezing can damage your
washer. If storing or moving your washer during freezing weather,
winterize it.
Check the following:
Is the power cord plugged into a grounded 3 prong outlet?
Is the indicator on the Cycle Control knob properly lined up
with a cycle? Turn the Cycle Control knob to the right slightly
and pull to start.
Non-use or vacation care

Operate your washer only when you are at home. If you will be on
vacation or not using your washer for an extended period of time,
you should:
■ Unplug washer or disconnect power.
Are both the hot and cold water faucets turned on?
■
Is the water inlet hose kinked?
■
Turn off the water supply to the washer. This helps avoid
accidental flooding (due to a water pressure surge) while you
are away.
Does the water level seem too low, or does the washer
appear to not fill completely?
The top of the agitator is much higher than the highest water
level. This creates a perception that the washer is not filling
completely. This is normal.
To winterize washer
