Liquid
bleach
dispenser
Always measure bleach. Do not
guess. Follow directions
on the bottle
for the amount to use. Never use
more than 1 cup (250 ml) for a full
load. Use less with lower water level
settings. Use a cup with a pouring
spout to avoid spilling.
1. Load the washer first.
2. Pour measured
bleach carefully
into dispenser. DO NOT let bleach
splash, drip or run down into the
washer basket. Undiluted bleach
will damage
any fabric it touches.
3. Start the washer. Bleach will be
diluted automatically
during the
wash part of the cycle.

CLEAN”
on bleaching,
lint
filter
The lint filter in your washer cleans
itself. Collected
lint is drained away
with the wash and rinse water.
If your washer drains into a tub,
remove any lint collected
in the drain
or strainer.
see “Laundry
Guide”
page
11.
Caring for your washer
OF
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 pockets 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.
If you need service or assistance, we suggest
you follow these four steps:
1. Before calling
for assistance..
Performance
problems
often result from little things you can find
and fix yourself without tools of any
kind.
IF YOUR WASHER DOES NOT FILL:
Is the power supply cord
plugged
in?
l Are both
water faucets open?
l Are fuses blown
or circuit-breaker
tripped?
l Are the water
supply hoses
kinked?
. Is the Cycle Control Knob set and
pulled out?
l
IF YOUR WASHER DOES NOT SPIN:
. Is the lid closed?
. Is the power supply cord
plugged
in?
l Is a fuse blown
or circuit-breaker
tripped?
IF YOUR WASHER STOPS DURING
THE PERMANENT PRESS CYCLE:
l Remember,
the washer will stop
for about 1’ 2 minutes after the
partial drain during the cooldown period in this cycle.
IF WASHER FILLS AND DRAINS
WITHOUT RUNNING:
l Make
sure that the Cycle Control
Knob is pointing to a number in
the cycle.
MAKE SURE THE DRAIN HOSE IS
HIGHER THAN THE WATER LEVEL IN
THE WASHER. IF IT ISN’T...
l The washer
may seem to be
draining
during wash and rinse
cycles.
l Water
can siphon out. [See “lnstallation
