Safety Information
Explanation of Safety Messages
Important Safety Instructions
Throughout this manual and on machine decals, you
will find precautionary statements (“DANGER,”
“WARNING,” and “CAUTION”) followed by specific
instructions. These precautions are intended for the
personal safety of the operator, user, servicer, and
those maintaining the machine.
(Save These Instructions)
DANGER
Indicates an imminently hazardous
situation that, if not avoided, will cause
severe personal injury or death.
WARNING
Indicates a hazardous situation that, if not
avoided, could cause severe personal
injury or death.
CAUTION
Indicates a hazardous situation that, if not
avoided, may cause minor or moderate
personal injury or property damage.
Additional precautionary statements (“IMPORTANT”
and “NOTE”) are followed by specific instructions.
IMPORTANT: The word “IMPORTANT” is used
to inform the reader of specific procedures where
minor machine damage will occur if the procedure
is not followed.
NOTE: The word “NOTE” is used to communicate
installation, operation, maintenance or servicing
information that is important but not hazard
related.
WARNING
To reduce the risk of fire, electric shock,
serious injury or death to persons when
using your washer, follow these basic
precautions:
W023
1. Read all instructions before using the washer.
2. Install the washer according to the
INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS. Refer to the
EARTHING (GROUNDING) INSTRUCTIONS
in the INSTALLATION manual for the proper
earthing (grounding) of the washer.All
connections for water, drain, electrical power and
earthing (grounding) must comply with local
codes and be made by licensed personnel when
required. Do not do it yourself unless you know
how!
3. Do not install or store the washer where it will be
exposed to water and/or weather.
4. Do not add the following substances or textiles
containing traces of the following substances to
the wash water: gasoline, kerosene, waxes,
cooking oils, vegetable oils, machine oils, drycleaning solvents, flammable chemicals, thinners
or other flammable or explosive substances.
These substances give off vapors that could
ignite, explode or cause the fabric to catch on fire
by itself.
5. Under certain conditions, hydrogen gas may be
produced in a hot water system that has not been
used for two 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 combination 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. THE
GAS IS FLAMMABLE, DO NOT SMOKE OR
USE AN OPEN FLAME DURING THIS TIME.
6. To reduce the risk of an electric shock or fire, DO
NOT use an extension cord or an adapter to
connect the washer to the electrical power
source.

Safety Information
7. Do not allow children to play on or in the washer.
Close supervision of children is necessary when
the washer is used near children. This appliance
is not intended for use by persons (including
children) with reduced physical, sensory or
mental capabilities, or lack of experience and
knowledge, unless they have been given
supervision or instruction concerning the use of
the appliance by a person responsible for their
safety. This is a safety rule for all appliances.
8. Do not reach into the washer if the washtub or
agitator is moving.
9. Never operate the washer with any guards, panels
and/or parts removed or broken. DO NOT tamper
with the controls or bypass any safety devices.
10. Use your washer only for its intended purpose,
washing clothes. Always follow the fabric care
instructions supplied by the garment
manufacturer.
11. Always read and follow manufacturer’s
instructions on packages of laundry and cleaning
aids. To reduce the risk of poisoning or chemical
burns, keep them out of the reach of children at
all times (preferably in a locked cabinet). Heed
all warnings or precautions.
12. Do not use fabric softeners or products to
eliminate static unless recommended by the
manufacturer of the fabric softener or product.
13. Lid MUST BE CLOSED any time the washer is

spinning. If the washtub does not stop when the
lid is opened, remove the washer from use and
call the service person.
6
14. Be sure water connections have a shut-off valve
and that fill hose connections are tight. CLOSE
the shut-off valves at the end of each wash day.
15. Keep your washer in good condition. Bumping or
dropping the washer can damage safety features.
If this occurs, have your washer checked by a
qualified service person.
16. Do not repair or replace any part of the washer, or
attempt any servicing unless specifically
recommended in the user-maintenance
instructions or in published user-repair
instructions that you understand and have the
skills to carry out. ALWAYS disconnect the
washer from electrical supply before attempting
any service.
17. Disconnect the power cord by grasping the plug,
not the cord. If the supply cord is damaged, it
must be replaced by a special cord or assembly
available from the manufacturer or its service
agent.
18. Before the washer is removed from service or
discarded, remove the lid to the washing
compartment.
19. Failure to install, maintain, and/or operate this
washer according to the manufacturer’s
instructions may result in conditions which can
produce bodily injury and/or property damage.
NOTE: The WARNING AND IMPORTANT
SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS appearing in this
manual are not meant to cover all possible
conditions and situations that may occur. Common
sense, caution and care must be exercised when
installing, maintaining, or operating the washer.
Always contact your dealer, distributor, service agent
or the manufacturer about any problems or conditions
you do not understand.

H
The washer must be earthed (grounded). In the event
of malfunction or breakdown, earthing will reduce the
risk of electric shock by providing a path of least
resistance for electric current. The washer is equipped
with a cord having an equipment-earthing conductor.
The washer must be plugged or hardwired into an
appropriate power source that is properly installed and
earthed in accordance with all local codes and
ordinances.

The water level in your washer should fit the size of
your wash load. Small loads will use lower water
levels.
On this cycle, the agitation during the wash portion of
the cycle is not constant. The wash will alternate
between a period of agitation and a period of pausing.
This continues until advancing to the spin portion of
the cycle.
There are two settings in the HANDWASH/
DELICATE cycle – Normal and Light.
IMPORTANT: If in doubt, always use a higher
water level. Most average loads will require a water
setting between Medium and Extra Large.

filling with water). Place the soaking product and
clothes load in the washtub. Pull timer knob to start
washer fill. After fill is completed and agitation has
started, push the timer knob in. This will stop the
washer. When the clothes have soaked the desired
length of time, TURN THE TIMER KNOB TO THE
START OF THE SPIN SETTING, then pull the timer
knob out to start the spin.
To set or reset the timer, push timer knob in to stop the
washer. Hold timer knob in firmly while turning it
clockwise to the setting desired. Pull timer knob out to
start the washer.
CAUTION
Failure to turn the timer knob to the spin
cycle and completely draining the washtub
after soaking will result in the washer
overflowing and causing property damage.

Operation
Optional Features
Use Tips
The bleach dispenser is located in the left front corner,
under the lid.
• Liquid fabric softeners will be dispensed during
the final rinse and should not be combined with
bleach, bluing, starch, detergents, soaps or
packaged water conditioners.
Use liquid bleach in the dispenser. Powdered bleach
must not be used in the dispenser. Add powdered
bleach to the wash water.
• When adding detergent to wash water, do not
allow any to enter into softener dispenser cup, as
softener will become gummy.
Bleach Dispenser
Carefully pour recommended amount of bleach into
the dispenser during the first fill of the washer.
Fabric Softener Dispenser
To prevent softener buildup, the dispenser can be filled
with clean water for automatic cleaning. This can be
done in washing cycles other than when softener is
used.
To Use Dispenser
After the clothes are loaded into the washtub and
before the start of the WASH cycle, pour the proper
amount of liquid fabric softener into dispenser.
1
The large fabric softener dispenser allows for the
fabric softener to be diluted with water. We
recommend adding water up to the fill level. Overfilling can allow fabric softener to spill onto the
clothes.
2
Setting the water level to medium or higher will result
in better performance from the fabric softener.
3
The fabric softener will remain in the dispenser until
the end of the wash spin, and will be dispensed into the
incoming rinse water.
To Clean the Dispenser
Remove the dispenser housing from agitator by
squeezing the lower part of the dispenser, pulling
directly upward and at the same time tilting slightly.
This will expose the dispenser cup, which is also
removable for cleaning (refer to Figure 28). Both
housing and cup can be soaked in hot soapy water and
rinsed clean. The funnel shape in top of agitator also
needs to be cleaned. The hole and the slots in the two
rings will require using a small brush for proper
cleaning.
After cleaning, install dispenser cup, then push
dispenser housing down until firmly snapped together.

Maintenance
User-Maintenance Instructions
Cold Weather Care
Reinstallation of Shipping Materials
If the washer is delivered on a cold day (below
freezing), or is stored in an unheated room or area
during the cold months, do not attempt to operate it
until the washer has had a chance to warm up.
Shipping Brace
Care of Your Washer
Use only a damp or sudsy cloth for cleaning the
control panel.
Wipe the washer cabinet as needed. If detergent,
bleach or other washing products are spilled on the
cabinet, wipe immediately.
Do not use scouring pads or abrasive cleansers on any
part of the washer.
The shipping brace in the lid opening should be saved
and reinstalled whenever the washer is moved. To
reinstall the brace, open the washer lid and place the
brace over the washer agitator, placing the back of the
brace into the washtub first.
Shipping Plug
The plastic shipping plug should be saved and
reinstalled any time the washer is moved. The plug fits
into two openings: The base opening and the shipping
plug opening on the bottom of the mobile pivot dome.
The plug MUST be inserted into both openings to
prevent damage to the washer. Refer to Figure 29.
The washtub will need no particular care though it
may need rinsing or wiping after an unusual load has
been washed.
Leave the lid open to allow the inside of the washer to
dry out after use. This helps prevent musty odors from
developing.
Replacing Hoses
1
Hoses and other natural rubber parts deteriorate after
extended use. Hoses may develop cracks, blisters or
material wear from the temperature and constant high
pressure they are subjected to.
All hoses should be checked on a monthly basis for
any visible signs of deterioration. Any hose showing
the signs of deterioration listed above should be
replaced immediately. All hoses should be replaced
every five years.
Vacations and Extended Non-Use
IMPORTANT: To avoid possible property damage
due to flooding, turn off the water supply to the
washer whenever there will be an extended period
of non-use.
Filter Screens
Check the filter screens in the fill hoses for debris or
damage annually. Clean or replace them if necessary.
If the washer is filling with water slower than normal,
check the filter screens. Clean or replace them if
necessary.

the problem.
Order filter screen Part No. F270300 from the nearest
