Caring for your washer.dryer
Sharp or heavy objects should
never be put on or in the washer
dryer. Check pockets for bolts,
nuts, etc.
or
When not washing, keep both water
faucets turned off. This takes the pressure off the water inlet valve and
hoses.
Some pretreatment
products
can damage
dials, consoles and finish.
Do not use these products on or near
your washer or dryer.
Never use the washer to...
• soak for more than 2 hours.
• soak with chlorine bleach.
Cleaning
dryer interior
• soak with vinegar or other acids.
• soak or store urine soaked clothes,
Never leave or store wet, damp or
dry laundry in your washer or dryer.
Garments which contain unstable
dyes, such as denim blue jeans or
brightly colored cotton items, may
discolor the dryer interior. If the
interior is discolored,
clean with one
of the following methods to avoid
staining later load items.
Powdered laundry detergent and
very warm water
After washing, use a soft dry cloth
to wipe the outside and inside dry.
Leave washer lid up until the basket
is dry. Wipe up all spills. Spills
allowed to remain may dull or damage
the finish.
Remove loose and sharp objects
from pockets and cuffs before washing
or drying - pins, buckles, etc. Close
metal zippers.
