Detergent
• Use either liquid or granular laundry detergent. For
best results, be sure detergent is added to the washer BEFORE the load and be sure the wash water is
above 65° F.
• Use the correct amount of detergent for the load size,
soil level and water conditions. Use more detergent if
you have hard water and very soiled loads.
If you have soft water or a lightly soiled load, use less
detergent. (See manufacturer's
instructions.)
• Wipe up any detergent spills on the washer.
Loading
• Put dry, unfolded clothes loosely in the tub, up to the
top row of holes for a maximum load.
• Do not wrap large items like sheets around the agitator.
• Mix large and small items for best circulation.

Wash
• When laundering permanent press items or items of
delicate construction, washable woolens or loosely
knit items, never use less than the MEDIUM water
