each faucet for several minutes. This will release any
accumulated hydrogen gas. As this gas is
flammable, do not smoke or use an open flame
during this time.
Recent studies have shown that if vegetable oil
contaminated materials are incompletely washed, a
carry-over and buildup of the oil may contribute to a
chemical reaction (spontaneous combustion) that
could cause a load to catch fire by itself. This would
be more likely to happen if the load were left in the
dryer after tumbling stopped or if items were folded
and stacked while warm.

Operating Tips
ng tips
operati
Detergent
dishwasher use
• Use either liquid or granular laundry detergent. For
best results, be sure detergent is added to the
washer BEFORE the load and be sure the wash
water is above 60° F (16° C).
loading
• Use the correct amount of detergent for the load size,
soil level and water conditions. Use more detergent if
you have hard water and very soiled loads.
If you haveControls
soft water
or a lightly soiled load, use less
t aa glance
detergent. (See manufacturer’s instructions.)
• Wipe up any detergent spills on the washer.
Dryer Exhaust tips
Loading
• For best results add the detergent to the washtub
before adding the load. Notes
• Put dry, unfolded clothes loosely in the tub, up to the
top row of holes for a maximum load.
• Do not wrap large items like sheets around the
agitator.
• Mix large and small items for best circulation. Wash
bulky items like blankets separately.
• When laundering wrinkle-free items or items of
delicate construction, washable woolens or loosely
knit items, never use less than the Medium water
level setting. This will minimize shrinkage, wrinkling
and pulling of seams.
• Close lid carefully to avoid slamming.
Additional Tips
• During the spin, it is possible for the load to become
unevenly distributed in the tub. If this happens, push
in the control dial, open the lid, redistribute the load,
close the lid and restart the washer. The spin will
resume at the point it was interrupted.
• The washer will pause briefly throughout each cycle.
These pauses are normal.
• This washer is designed so that it will not agitate or
spin when the lid is open. It will, however, fill with the
lid open so water is available for pretreating stains or
diluting fabric softener.
• If you open the lid during a spin cycle, the washer
will stop. When the lid is closed and the washer is
restarted, the washer will continue the cycle at the
point it was interrupted.

Liquid Dispenser (select models)
The dispenser may be used for fabric softener with
most cycles or liquid detergent with the SOAK cycle
(select models). The liquid dispenser should be
cleaned before and after each use of liquid detergent.
The dispenser automatically releases the liquid at the
proper time during the cycle.
The load will soak for 30 minutes with brief periods of
agitation. The water is then spun out and clean wash
water is added along with the liquid detergent for a
16-minute wash cycle.
Safety Spin
If for any reason you open the washer lid when the
washer is in a spin or extract period, the operation will
immediately stop. This is for your personal safety. If
your washer does not stop, call your service technician
immediately. When the lid is closed, the operation will
automatically resume.

Provides a flow of water when holding the

reset the control dial for the final spin period.
Overload Protector
A built-in protector automatically shuts off the washer
motor in case of an overload. This can occur if:
• The load being washed is too heavy.
• Too many appliances are plugged into the line
operating your washer.
• A low voltage condition exists on the line.
• Lid is opened and closed repeatedly.
The overload protector permits the washer to start again
when the motor has cooled to a safe operating temperature.
If the motor stops repeatedly, call your service technician.

11. If you close your home for the winter, have a service
technician drain the washer. Unplug cord from
electrical outlet and disconnect hoses from faucets.
Cleaning the Interior
Clean the interior of the washer periodically to remove
any dirt, soil, odor, mold, mildew or bacteria residue
that may remain in the washer as a result of washing
clothes. We recommend taking the following steps
every 60 to 120 days to clean and freshen your washer
interior. The frequency with which the washer should
be cleaned and freshened depends on factors such as
usage, the amount of dirt, soil or bacteria being run
through your washer, or the use of cold water. Failure
to follow these instructions may result in unsatisfactory
conditions, including unpleasant odor and/or
permanent stains on the washer or wash load.
To clean and freshen the washer interior:
1. Add a measured amount of chlorine bleach to the
bleach dispenser, following package directions.
2. Add 1/4 cup of detergent to the tub.
3. Run the washer without a load through a complete
cycle using hot water.
4. Repeat the process if necessary.
