Caring for your washer
WHEN NOT WASHING, keep both
water faucets turned off. This takes
the pressure off the water inlet valve
and hoses.
AFTER WASHING, use a soft dry cloth
to wipe the outside and inside dry.
Leave the lid up until the basket is dry.
Wipe up spills right away. Spills can
dull or damage
the finish.
REMOVE SHARP OBJECTS such as pins,
buckles,
etc., from clothes
before
washing. Close metal zippers.
SHARP OR HEAVY OBJECTS should
never be put on or in the washer.
Check DOCketS
for bolts, nuts,
tools, etc.
SOME PRETREATMENT PRODUCTS
can damage
washer and dryer dials,
consoles and finishes. Do not use
these products
on or near your
washer or dryer.
Winterizing
Because some water stays in the washer, freezing can cause a lot of damage.
If your washer is
stored or moved during the cold weather..
1. Shut off both water
faucets. Disconnect and drain
water inlet hoses.
