SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
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.
• Before the washer is removed from service or
• Do not wash articles that have been previously
cleaned in, washed in, soaked in, or spotted with
gasoline, dry cleaning solvents, or other
flammable or explosive substances, as they give
off vapors that could ignite or explode
discarded, remove the door to prevent children
from hiding inside.
• Do not install or store the washer where it will be
• 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 repair or replace any part of the washer or
attempt any servicing unless specifically
recommended in the user-maintenance
• 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
• Do not allow children to play on or in the washer.
Close supervision of children is necessary when
the washer is used near children.

• Do not tamper with controls.

that you understand and have the skills to carry
out.
• See Installation Instructions for grounding
requirements.
• ALWAYS follow the fabric care instructions
supplied by the garment manufacturer.
• Do notplace items exposed to cooking oil in your
washer. Items contaminated with cooking oils may
contribute to a chemical reaction that could cause
a load to catch fire.
• Do not use fabric softeners or products to
eliminate static unless recommended by the
manufacturer of the fabric softener or product.
SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS
GROUNDING
INSTRUCTIONS
This appliance must be grounded. In the event of malfunction or breakdown, grounding will reduce the risk
of electric shock by providing a path of least resistance for electric current. This appliance is equipped with
a cord having an equipment-grounding conductor and grounding plug. The plug must be plugged into an
appropriate outlet that is properly installed and grounded in accordance with all local codes and ordinance.
• Do not use an adapter or extension cord.
• Do not remove ground prong.
• If you don't have the proper outlet, consult an electrician.
WARNING:
Improper connection of the equipment-grounding conductor can result in risk of electric shock.
Check with a qualified electrician or serviceman if you are in doubt as to whether the appliance is
properly grounded. Do not modify the plug provided with the appliance - if it does not fit the outlet,
have a proper outlet installed by a qualified electrician.

SAFETY
1. Fabric Care Labels
Look for a care label on your clothes. This will tell you about the fabric content of your garment and how it should
be washed.
2. Sorting
To get the best results, sort clothes into loads that can be washed with the same wash cycle.
Different fabrics need to be washed in different ways.
Always sort dark colors from pale colors and whites. Wash separately as dye and lint transfer can occur causing
discoloration of white clothing. If possible, do not wash heavily soiled items with lightly soiled ones.
Soil (Hea_3 _,Normal, Light)
Color (White, Lights, Darks)
Lint (Lint Producers, Collectors)
3. Check
Separate clothes according to amount of soil.
Separate white fabrics from colored fabrics.
Wash lint producers and lint collectors separately.
before loading
Combine large and small items in a load. Load large items first.
Large items should not be more than half the total wash load.
Do not wash single items. This may cause an out-of-balance load. Add one or two similar items.
• Check all the pockets to make sure that they are
empty. Things such as clip, matches, pens,
coins, and keys can damage both your washer
and your clothes.
• Close zippers, hooks, and strings to make sure
that these items do not snag on other clothes.
• Pretreat dirt and stains by brushing a little
detergent dissolved in water onto stains like
collars and cuffs to help lift dirt.

; gAbout
detergent
Low lathering detergent is recommended for this washer. Use the manufacturer's recommended amount.
If low lathering detergent is not available, a reduced amount of regular detergent may be used.
Because reducing the amount of detergent may reduce cleaning, it is important to pretreat stains,
sort carefully by color and soil level, and avoid overloading.
Detergent usage may need to be adjusted for water temperature, water hardness, size and soil level of the load.
For best results, avoid using too much detergent.

powdered or liquid detergent can be used.
• Add measured liquid chlorine bleach to this
compartment. The bleach will be automatically
dispensed at the proper time during the wash
cycle.
• Liquid or powdered color-safe bleach may be
added to the main wash compartment along with
the same type of detergent, liquid or powdered.
• Do not exceed the maximum fill line. Overfilling can
cause early dispensing of the bleach which could
result in damaged clothes.
NOTE
: If you are using the Prewash option with
Main wash, powdered
detergent
must be
used in the main wash compartment
since

• Do not pour undiluted liquid chlorine bleach directly
onto the load or into the drum. Fabric damage can
occur.
• Do not use powdered bleach in this compartment.
4. Fabric Softener
Compartment
• Add recommended amount of fabric softener to
this compartment.
• Dilute concentrated softeners with warm water to
the fill line.
• Do not exceed the maximum fill line. Overfilling can
cause early dispensing of the fabric softener which
could result in stained clothes.
• Do not pour fabric softener directly on the wash
load.
• The fabric softener will be automatically dispensed
during the last rinse cycle.

drum
• If you live in a hard water area, limescale can continuously builds up in places where it cannot be seen
and it is not easily removed from the drum.
Over time the build-up of scale clogs appliances, and if it is not kept in check, these will eventually
have to be replaced.
• Although the washing drum is made of Stainless steel, specks of rust can be caused by small metal articles
(paper clips, safety pins, etc.) which have been left in the drum.
• The washing drum should be cleaned from time to time.
• If you use descaling agents, dyes, or bleaches, make sure they are suitable for washing machine use.
• Descaler could contain components that can damage part of your washing machine.
• Remove the spots with a stainless steel cleaning agent.
• Never use steel wool.
