WASHER SAFETY
Your safety and the safety of others is very important.
We have provided many important safety messages in this manual and on your appliance. Always read and obey all
safety messages.
This is the safety alert symbol.
This symbol alerts you to hazards that can kill or hurt you and others.
All safety messages will be preceded by the safety alert symbol and the word “DANGER” or
“WARNING.” These words mean:
DANGER
You will be killed or seriously injured if you don't
follow instructions.
WARNING
You can be killed or seriously injured if you don't
follow instructions.
All safety messages will identify the hazard, tell you how to reduce the chance of injury, and tell you what can
happen if the instructions are not followed.
IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
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.
• Do not wash articles that have been previously
cleaned in, washed in, soaked in, or spotted with
gasoline, dry-cleaning solvents, other flammable,
or explosive substances as they give off vapors
that could ignite or explode.
• 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.
• 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.
• Before the washer is removed from service or discarded,
remove the lid.
• Do not reach into the washer if the tub or agitator is
moving.
• Do not install or store the washer where it will be
exposed to the weather.
• Do not tamper with controls.
• Do not repair or replace any part of the washer or
attempt any servicing unless specifically recommended
in this Use and Care Guide or in published user-repair
instructions that you understand and have the skills to
carry out.
• See Installation Instructions for grounding
requirements.

WARNING
Normal Washer Sounds
Your new washer may make sounds your old one didn’t.
Because the sounds might be unfamiliar, you may be
concerned about them. These sounds are normal.
During washing
When you select a small load size setting, your washer has
a lower water level. This can cause a clicking sound from
the upper part of the agitator.
During drain
Electrical Shock Hazard
Plug into a grounded 3 prong outlet.
If water is drained quickly from your washer (depending on
your installation), you may hear air being pulled through
the pump during the end of draining.
Do not remove ground prong.
Do not use an adapter.
After drain and before spin
Failure to follow these instructions can result in
death, fire, or electrical shock.
When the cycle changes from draining to spinning, you
may hear gears engaging.
Starting Your Washer
Fire Hazard
Do not use an extension cord.
1. Measure detergent and pour it into the washer.
■
If desired, add powdered or liquid color safe bleach.
■
Add extra detergent for the Super Wash cycle.
2. Drop a sorted load of clothes loosely into your washer.
Never place items in the washer that are
dampened with gasoline or other flammable
fluids.
No washer can completely remove oil.
Do not dry anything that has ever had any type of
oil on it (including cooking oils).
Doing so can result in death, explosion, or fire.
6
■
Load evenly to maintain washer balance. Mix large
and small items.
■
Items should move easily through the wash water.
Overloading can cause poor cleaning.
■
To reduce wrinkling of permanent press clothes and
some synthetic knits, use a large load size to provide
more space (see step 6).
3. (OPTIONAL STEP) Pour measured liquid chlorine
bleach into the liquid chlorine bleach dispenser. Bleach
will be diluted automatically during the wash part of the
cycle.
■
Never use more than 1 cup (250 mL) for a full load.
Use less with a smaller load size.
■
Follow the manufacturer’s directions for safe use.
■
To avoid spilling, use a cup with a pouring spout. Do
not let bleach splash, drip, or run down into the
washer basket.
■
Use only liquid chlorine bleach in this dispenser.
6. Turn the LOAD SIZE selector to the correct setting for
your wash load and the type of fabric being washed.
■
Choose a load size that allows the load to move
freely for best fabric care. See "Loading."
■
You may change the load size selection after the
washer has started filling by turning the selector to a
different setting.
7. Set the TEMPERATURE selector to the correct setting
for the type of fabric and soils being washed.
■
4. (OPTIONAL STEP) Pour measured liquid fabric
softener into the liquid fabric softener dispenser.
Softener is added automatically during the rinse
portion of the cycle.
Your washer uses the ACCUWASH* automatic
temperature control. ACCUWASH maintains a
uniform water temperature by regulating incoming
hot and cold water. This helps eliminate undissolved
detergent and ensures consistent cleaning results.
The cold wash is regulated at approximately 75ºF
(24ºC). The warm wash is maintained at
approximately 100ºF (38ºC).
NOTE: Make sure that both hot and cold water
faucets are turned on or the ACCUWASH feature
will not work properly.
■
Dilute liquid fabric softener by filling the dispenser
with warm water until liquid reaches the crossbar in
the opening.
■
Use the warmest water safe for fabric.
■
Follow garment label instructions.
HOT: 111°F (44°C) or above
– Whites and pastels
– Heavy and greasy soils
WARM: 90° to 110°F (32° to 43°C)
– Bright colors
– Moderate to light soils
COLD: 70° to 90°F (21° to 32°C)
– Colors that bleed or fade
– Light soils
8. (OPTIONAL STEP) For an additional rinse and spin at
the end of a wash cycle, set the EXTRA RINSE selector
to ON.
■
Do not spill or drip any fabric softener on the
clothes.
■
Use only liquid fabric softener in this dispenser.
5. Close the washer lid.
9. (OPTIONAL STEP) Set the CYCLE SIGNAL selector to
ON if you want your washer to sound a signal when the
wash cycle is finished. The signal is helpful when you
are washing items that should be removed from the
washer as soon as the cycle ends.
7
10. Push in the Cycle Control knob and turn it clockwise to
the wash cycle you want. Reduce the wash time when
using a small load size setting. See “Selecting a Cycle
and Time.”
Normal cycle
The Normal cycle features high-speed agitation for
cleaning cottons and linens, and high spin times to shorten
drying time. Select up to 15 minutes of wash time,
depending on whether your load is lightly, moderately or
heavily soiled. For lightly soiled cotton and linen fabrics,
use the shortest time setting.
Super Wash - Select the 18-minute Super Wash feature to
wash heavily soiled loads that need maximum soil
removal. Use two times the recommended amount of
detergent for this cycle.
Permanent Press cycle
11. Pull out the Cycle Control knob to start the washer.
This cycle starts with high-speed agitation and then steps
down to low-speed agitation for cleaning permanent press
blends and synthetic fabrics. To minimize wrinkling, this
cycle features a cool-down rinse and a low-speed final
spin. Select 3 to 9 minutes of wash time, depending on
your model, to clean lightly to moderately soiled loads.
Extra Delicate cycle
NOTE: To stop the washer at any time, push in the
Cycle Control knob. To restart the washer, close the
lid (if open) and pull out the Cycle Control knob.
This cycle features extra low-speed agitation for gentle soil
removal from delicate items and washable knits. Low spin
speeds minimize wrinkling. Select 3 or 6 minutes of wash
time, depending on your model, to clean lightly to
moderately soiled loads.
Delicates cycle
Selecting a Cycle and Time
This section describes the available wash cycles and will
help you make the best cycle selections for your wash
loads. Each cycle is designed for different types of fabric
and soil levels.
This cycle features low-speed agitation for gentle soil
removal from delicate items and washable knits. Low spin
speeds minimize wrinkling. Use this cycle to clean lightly
to moderately soiled loads.
ULTIMATE CARE* (Hand Washables) cycle
■
The washer pauses briefly throughout each cycle.
These pauses are normal. Refer to “Normal washer
sounds” to learn more about the sounds you may hear
during a wash cycle.
■
Refer to “Understanding washer cycles” to learn what
happens during a wash cycle.
This cycle features a series of brief, low speed agitations
and short soaks to gently clean special-care items. Low
spin speeds minimize wrinkling. Wash small loads. If items
appear to be floating (due to trapped air), stop the washer
by pushing in the Cycle Control knob. Push items down
into the washer. Pull out the Cycle Control knob to restart
the washer.
NOTE: This manual covers several different models.
The washer you purchased will not have all of the
cycles described.
Hand Washables cycle
This cycle features a series of brief, low speed agitations
and short soaks to gently clean special-care items. Low
spin speeds minimize wrinkling. Wash small loads. If items
appear to be floating (due to trapped air), stop the washer
by pushing in the Cycle Control knob. Push items down
into the washer. Pull out the Cycle Control knob to restart

Rinse and Spin
When using extra detergent for heavily soiled clothes, or
washing special-care items, you may find an extra rinse
and spin is needed.
CARING FOR YOUR
WASHER
1. Push in the Cycle Control knob and turn it clockwise to
any of the Rinse settings.
2. Pull out the Cycle Control knob. The washer fills to the
selected load size, agitates, drains, and spins.
NOTE: An EXTRA RINSE option is available (on some
models). See “Starting your washer.”
Drain and Spin
A drain and spin may help shorten drying times for some
heavy fabrics or special-care items by removing excess
water.
1. Push in the Cycle Control knob and turn it clockwise to
any of the Spin settings.
2. Pull out the Cycle Control knob. The washer drains,
then spins.
Cleaning Your Washer
Cleaning the exterior
Use a soft, damp cloth or sponge to wipe up any spills
such as detergent or bleach. Occasionally wipe the
outside of your washer to keep it looking new.
Cleaning the interior
Clean your washer interior by mixing 1 cup (250 mL) of
chlorine bleach and 2 cups (500 mL) of detergent. Pour
this into your washer and run it through a complete cycle
using hot water. Repeat this process if necessary.
NOTE: Remove any hard water deposits using only
cleaners labeled as washer safe.
Cleaning the liquid fabric softener dispenser
Flush dispenser periodically with warm water, as shown.
Remove the dispenser by grasping the top of the
dispenser with both hands and squeezing and pushing
upwards with thumbs. Clean the dispenser by rinsing it
under a water faucet. Replace it after cleaning.
NOTE: Do not wash clothes with this dispenser removed.
Do not add detergent or bleach to this dispenser; it is for
liquid fabric softener use only.
9
Self-cleaning Lint Filter
Your washer has a self-cleaning lint filter at the bottom of
the basket. Wash and rinse water flow over the filter during
agitation, separating the lint from the water. The lint spins
out of the system during the spin part of the cycle.
If your washer drains into a tub, remove any lint collected
in the tub or strainer.
Vacation, Storage,
and Moving Care
Install and store your washer where it will not freeze.
Because some water may stay in the hoses, freezing can
damage your washer. If storing or moving your washer
during freezing weather, winterize it.
Non-use or vacation care:
Operate your washer only when you are at home. If you will
be on vacation or not using your washer for an extended
period of time, you should:
■
Unplug washer or disconnect power.
■
Turn off the water supply to the washer. This helps
avoid accidental flooding (due to a water pressure
surge) while you are away.
To winterize washer:
Water Inlet Hoses
Replace inlet hoses after five years of use to reduce the
risk of hose failure. Periodically inspect and replace inlet
hoses if bulges, kinks, cuts, wear or leaks are found.
When replacing your inlet hoses, mark the date of
replacement on the label with a permanent marker.
1. Shut off both water faucets.
2. Disconnect and drain water inlet hoses.
3. Put 1 quart (1 L) of R.V.-type antifreeze in the basket.
4. Run washer on a drain and spin setting (see “Drain and
spin”) for about 30 seconds to mix the antifreeze and
water.
5. Unplug washer or disconnect power.
To use washer again:
1. Flush water pipes and hoses.
2. Reconnect water inlet hoses.
3. Turn on both water faucets.
4. Plug in washer or reconnect power.
5. Run the washer through a complete cycle with 1 cup
(250 mL) of detergent to clean out antifreeze.
