hand wash and line dry items containing
these materials.
. Flammable fluids (dry-cleaning solvents,
kerosene, gasoline, etc.) should not be
used or stored in or near your washer. Do
not add flammable fluids to your wash
water. These substances give off vapors
that can create a fire hazard or explosion.
l Do not allow children to operate, play with,
or crawl on or inside your washer. Supervise children closely when your washer is
used near them.
l Before your washer is removed from
service or discarded, remove the lid to
prevent accidental entrapment.

responsibilities
Store detergent, laundry aids and other
materials in a cool, dry place where
children cannot reach them (in a locked
cabinet if possible).
Read and follow instructions on packages of detergent and laundry aids,
especially warnings and precautions.
Do not wash or dry items that are soiled
with vegetable or cooking oil. These
items may contain some oil after laundering. Due to the remaining oil, the fabric
may smoke or catch fire by itself.
Do not use chlorine bleach and ammonia
or acids (such as vinegar or rust remover) in the same wash. Hazardous
fumes can form.
* Unplug power supply cord before
attempting to service your washer.

l
for
washing
Empty pockets and turn them inside out.
Turn down cuffs and brush away lint and dirt.
Turn synthetic knits inside out to avoid pilling.
Close zippers, snaps and hooks to avoid
snagging other items. Remove pins, buckles
and other hard objects to avoid scratching
the washer interior.
Remove unwashable trim and ornaments.
Tie strings and sashes so they will not
tangle.
Mend tears, loose hems and seams.
Treat spots and stains. (See page 13 for
pretreatment and stain removal information.)
Stained or wet garments should be washed
promptly for best results.
Sorting
l
l
l
l
Separate dark from light colors, colorfast
from noncolorfast.
Sort by fabric and construction (sturdy
cottons, knits, delicate items).
Separate heavily soiled items from lightly
soiled ones even if they would normally be
washed together.
Separate lint givers (towels, chenille) from
lint takers (corduroy, synthetics, permanent
press). When possible, turn lint givers inside
out.
12
Loading
Load washer properly. Overloading or
packing can:
-cause poor cleaning.
-increase wrinkling.
-create excessive lint.
-wear out items faster (because of pilling).
. Load by the amount of space items take up,
not by their weight.
l Drop items into washer loosely. Fill to the top
of the basket, but do not pack or wrap items
around the agitator.
l Items should move easily through wash
water for best cleaning and wrinkle-free
results. Watch for rollover. Items should sink
and reappear later.
l Mix large and small items in each load. Load
evenly to maintain washer balance. An offbalance load can make the machine vibrate
during spin.
l To reduce wrinkling,
permanent press and
synthetic knits should have more room to
move in the water than heavy items (towels,
jeans).

rules
Most stains are easier to remove when they
are fresh. Old or set stains may not come
out. Follow package directions for pretreatment products.
Before treating any stain, find out .
1. What kind of stain it is.
2. What kind of fabric it is and if it is colorfast.
(Check label.)
l
l
l
3. How old the stain is. (Washing and drying
can set some stains.)
Start with cold or warm water. Hot water can
set some stains.
When bleach is recommended, use a bleach
that is safe for the fabric. Dilute chlorine
bleach.
Test stain removers on an inside seam or
hidden corner of the item to see if the color is
removed.
Put the stained area face down on a paper
towel or white cloth. Apply the stain remover
to the back of the stain. This can force the
stain off the fabric instead of through it.
Meat tenderizer or enzyme presoaks help
break down some protein stains so they are
easier to remove.
Use nonflammable dry cleaning solvents in a
well-ventilated room.

hardness
Many poor washing results can be traced to
wash-water hardness. To check your water
hardness:
. City water-ask your city water company.
Ask for the mineral content in grains-per-gallon
or parts-per-million. If your water is 9 or more
grains-per-gallon or more than 153 parts-permillion:
l Consider installing a water softener.
l Use more detergent.
l Use a packaged water conditioner.
l Do not use soap.
Using
laundry
aids
Follow package instructions when using laundry
aids. (See “Removing Stains” on page 13, for
more information.)
Chlorine
bleach
Use bleach dispenser if your machine has one.
(See page 11.)
l If your washer does not have a bleach
dispenser:
1. Let the washer fill and begin agitating the
load.
2. Measure bleach. Never use more than
250 mL (1 cup) for a full load. Dilute measured bleach in 1L (1 quart) of water.
3. Add bleach to the wash cycle so it can be
removed in the rinse cycle. Pour bleach
around agitator, not directly on load.
l Follow directions on care labels. Do not use
chlorine bleach on wool, silk, spandex,
acetates or some flame-retardant fabrics.
l When soaking with chlorine bleach, add
detergent to soak water.
NOTE: Undiluted bleach will damage any fabric
it touches. The damage appears as rips, holes,
tears, or color loss and may not show up until
several washings later.

softeners
Use your fabric softener dispenser if your
machine has one.
If your washer does not have a fabric
softener dispenser, add diluted fabric
softener only in the final rinse.
Always dilute fabric softeners with 125 to
250 mL (I/Z to 1 cup) warm water. Undiluted
fabric softener can stain fabrics.
Fabric softeners should not be mixed with
other laundry products because greasy
stains may form. If stains form, remove by
wetting the stain and rubbing with liquid
detergent or a bar of soap. Rewash the
stained item.
Too much fabric softener can make some
items (diapers and towels) nonabsorbent. If
this happens, use less fabric softener or do
not use it every time.
bleach
Powdered or liquid all-fabric bleach may be
used on all types of fabrics.
Do not use all-fabric bleach in the bleach
dispenser because it may clog.
Detergent
l
If the recommended amount of normal
sudsing detergent creates too many suds or
suds are present in the rinse water, try a low
sudsing detergent.
l
Using too little detergent is a common cause
of laundry problems. Follow manufacturer’s
directions. Measure accurately, especially
when using ultra detergents. Package
directions are usually based on:
-moderate water hardness (4-6 grains)
-lightly soiled items
-normal mix loads.
Use more detergent for:
-hard water
-cooler wash water
-full loads
-heavily soiled items.
Do not judge the amount of detergent to use
by the amount of suds in the machine. Low
sudsing detergents do not create as many
suds as normal sudsing detergents.
Fire or Explosion
Hazard
Store flammable solvents or liquids away
from your washer.
9 Dry cleaning solvents or fluids should not
be put directly into your washer.
l Items treated with solvents should be
rinsed and air dried before washing in
your washer.
The fumes from these substances can
create a fire hazard or explosion.
l
Personal
l
l
Injury
Hazard
Never use chlorine bleach with ammonia
or acids. Hazardous fumes can form.
Keep stain removal products out of the
reach of children . preferably in a locked
cabinet.

Washing
special-care
items
Most garments and household textiles have care labels with laundering instructions. Always follow
label directions when they are available. General washing instructions for some special washables
are included in this section.
Blankets,
woolen
electric
and
Curtains, drapes,
slipcovers
Pretreat spots and stains. Select water temperature, cycle, and time
according to the type of blanket being washed. Two rinses may be
necessary. If manufacturer recommends machine washing:
1. Measure blanket before washing.
2. Add mild detergent to washer. Fill and agitate briefly to dissolve
detergent.
3. Stop washer. Load blanket evenly around agitator. Soak 10 to
15 minutes.
4. Set Cycle Control Knob to Drain and Spin. Start washer. Spin 1 to
2 minutes.
5. Fill washer for final rinse. Stop washer. Allow to soak.
6. Set Cycle Control Knob to Drain and Spin. Start washer. Allow
washer to finish cycle.
7’. Lay blanket on flat surface and block by gently stretching to
original measurement. Woollens tend to shrink more the first time
they are washed. This is normal.

a small amount of detergent until you are ready to wash them.
You may wish to use bleach or a special soaking product
when soaking.
2. Spin excess water from diapers before washing.
3. Wash diapers as you would wash white cottons and linens.
Elastic picks up oil from the body. Oil can damage elastic. Wash
often to help reduce the damage. Use warm water and sufficient
detergent to remove oils.
Items will be clearly labeled as flame-retardant. Follow
manufacturer’s instructions to retain flame retardant qualities.
18
Fiberglass
materials
Do not wash fiberglass materials in your washer. Glass particles
could stick to the next load and cause skin irritation.
Knits
Knits are comfortable to wear because they stretch. However,
this means that knits are more likely to be stretched and
damaged when washed (especially bulky knits). Knits made of
synthetic fabrics such as polyester, nylon, and acrylic tend to
keep their original shape more than a knit made of cotton or
ramie.
1. Close zippers, fasten hooks and eyes to prevent snagging.
2. Wash small loads to reduce pilling and lint.
Washing feather pillows is not recommended unless they are
dryer dried.
I. Add detergent then partially fill washer with water; agitate
until detergent is dissolved.
2. Place two pillows on opposite sides of the agitator to balance
the load.
3. Allow washer to fill completely and continue through the
cycle.
4. Stop the washer occasionally to press air from item(s) being
washed.

cleaners labeled as washer safe.
If the washer interior needs cleaning (for
example, after tinting or dyeing), put 250 mL
(1 cup) of chlorine bleach and 500 mL
(2 cups) of detergent in the washer. Run
through a complete cycle using hot water.
If staining occurs on following loads, repeat
the process.
Sharp or heavy objects can damage your
washer. Check pockets for bolts, nuts, etc.
Do not lay these objects on your washer after
emptying pockets.
Operate your washer only when you
are at home.
