For your safety, the information in this manual must be followed to minimize the risk of fire or
explosion, electric shock, or to prevent property damage, personal injury, or loss of life.
IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
_1_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.
• 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. ff 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.
instructions or published user-repair instructions
that you understand and have the skills to carry
out.
• See Installation Instructions for grounding
requirements.
• AL WAYS follow the fabric care instructions
supplied by the garment manufacturer.
• Do not place 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.

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.

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.
NOTE: Do not wash o1"spin water-proof

clothes.
The automatic dispenser consists of four compartments
which hold 1) liquid chlorine bleach, 2) liquid fabric
softener, 3) liquid or powdered detergent for prewash and 4) liquid or powdered detergent
and color safe bleach for main wash.
All laundry products can be added at once in their respective dispenser compartments.
They will be dispensed at the appropriate time for most effective cleaning. After loading the laundry
additives into the dispenser, close the dispenser drawer.
Add detergent,
bleach and fabric softener to the automatic
dispenser
following
these steps:
1. Open the dispenser drawer.
2. Load the laundry products into the appropriate compartments.
3. Close the dispenser drawer.
• About detergent
Low sudsing detergent is recommended for this washer. Use the manufacturer's recommended amount.
If low sudsing 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.
