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
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. Refer to the GROUNDING INSTRUCTIONS in
the INSTALLATION manual for the proper
grounding of the washer.
3. 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.
4. Do not add gasoline, dry-cleaning solvents, or
other flammable or explosive substances to the

Maintenance
User-Maintenance Instructions
Replacing Hoses
Lubrication
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 moving parts are sealed in a permanent supply of
lubricant or are equipped with oilless bearings.
Additional lubrication will not be necessary.
Do not lubricate the door hinge. If the hinge makes
noise, replace the hinge.
Cold Weather Care
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.
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.
Filter Screens
Care of Your Washer
If the washer is filling with water slower than normal,
check the filter screens. Clean or replace them if
necessary.
Use only a damp or sudsy cloth for cleaning the
control panel. Some cleaning product sprays may
harm the finish on the control panel or damage the
interior of the hood.
Wipe the washer cabinet as needed. If detergent,
bleach or other washing products are spilled on the
cabinet, wipe immediately. Some products will cause
permanent damage if spilled on the cabinet.
Do not use scouring pads or abrasive cleansers.
The wash drum will need no particular care although it
may need rinsing or wiping after an unusual load has
been washed.
The outside of the door window can be cleaned with
household window cleaner.
Check the filter screens in the fill hoses for debris or
damage annually. Clean or replace them if necessary.
Order filter screen Part No. F270300 from the nearest
authorized parts distributor.
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.
Leave the loading door open during extended periods
of non-use to allow the wash drum to dry out and
avoid a musty smell.
Running an occasional rinse cycle with bleach will
help to avoid a musty smell in the wash drum.
Cleaning Glass Sealing Area
In order to assure that the door properly seals against
water leaks, the following surfaces should be wiped
off periodically:
 The outside perimeter of the door glass where the
seal contacts the glass
 The front surface of the door seal lip
Usually a mild soap solution will work. If there is an
extreme build-up of minerals from a hard water
supply, the surfaces may need to be cleaned with a
lime removal chemical.
