ENGLISH
Sort items by recommended water temperatures and wash time.
• Separate white, light, and colorfast items from dark and noncolorfast
items.
• Separate items which shed lint from items which attract lint.
Permanent press, synthetic, knit and corduroy items will pick up lint
from towels, rugs and chenille bedspreads.
• Separate heavily soiled items from lightly soiled items.
• Separate lacy, sheer and loosely knit items from sturdy items.
• Do not machine wash items containing fiberglass. Small particles of
fiberglass left in the drum may stick to fabrics in other loads and
cause skin irritation.
5. Add detergent, bleach and fabric softener to automatic dispenser following these steps:
A. OPENING AND CLOSING THE DISPENSER
DRAWER
• Slowly open the dispenser drawer by first sliding
the safety latch to the right, then pulling the drawer
out until it stops.
• After adding laundry products, slowly close the
dispenser drawer. Closing the drawer too quickly
could result in early dispensing of the bleach and
fabric softener.
• Laundry products used with powder or liquid
detergent, such as color-safe bleach, water
conditioner, detergent booster, and enzyme
products should be added to the empty tub before
loading.
B. DETERGENT
• Add measured detergent to the detergent
compartment of the dispenser drawer.
• Detergent is flushed from the dispenser at the
beginning of the cycle. Either powdered or liquid
detergent can be used. Note: Liquid detergent will
drain into the washer drum as it is added.
• Low sudsing detergent is recommended for this
washer. Use the manufacturer's recommended
amount.
• If low sudsing detergent is not available, a reduced
amount of regular detergent may be used.
Because reducing the amount of detergent may
reduce cleaning, it is important to pretreat stains,
sort carefully by color and soil level, and avoid
overloading.
• Detergent usage may need to be adjusted for water
temperature, water hardness, size and soil level of
the load.
• For best results, avoid oversudsing.
Note: From time to time you may see water in the
bleach and fabric softener compartments. This is a
result of the siphoning action and is part of the
normal operation of the washer.
C. LIQUID BLEACH
• If desired, measure out the recommended amount
of liquid chlorine bleach (not to exceed 1/3 cup (80
mL)) and pour it into the center compartment
labeled "Liquid Bleach" and marked with this
symbol.
• Do not exceed the maximum fill line. Overfilling
can cause early dispensing of the bleach which
could result in damaged clothes.
• Do not pour undiluted liquid chlorine bleach directly
onto the load or into the drum. Fabric damage can
occur.
• Do not use powdered bleach in the dispenser.
6
D. FABRIC SOFTENER
• If desired, pour the recommended amount of fabric
softener into the compartment labeled "Fabric
Softener" and marked with this symbol
.
• Dilute concentrated softeners with warm water to
the Fill Line.
• Do not exceed the maximum fill line. Overfilling
can cause early dispensing of the fabric softener
which could result in stained clothes.
• Do not pour fabric softener directly on the
wash load.
• Use of a fabric softener dispensing ball is not
recommended in tumble action washers.
Washing Procedures
(continued)
6. Select the cycle, temperature and speed settings options
and features according to type, size, and soil level of each
load.
(See Operating Instructions for your specific model.)
7. Start the washer.
8. Remove items when the cycle is completed.
Place washed items in automatic dryer, line dry, or dry flat as directed by
fabric care label. Excess wrinkling, color transfer or odors may develop in
items left in the washer after the cycle has ended.
9. General Precautions
• If the dispenser drawer is opened during operation, the washer will
shut off and the door will unlock. "d:do" (dispenser door) will be
displayed. Slowly close the dispenser drawer, and press START to
continue cycle.
• Do not slam the washer door closed or try to force the door open
when locked ("DOOR LOCK" will be displayed). This could result in
damage to the washer.
Do not store or place laundry products
on top of washer at any time. They can
damage the finish or controls.
Stain Removal
Do not use or mix
liquid chlorine bleach with other
household chemicals such as toilet
cleaners, rust removers, acid or
products containing ammonia.
These mixtures can produce
dangerous fumes which can cause
serious injury or death.
• DO NOT leave the washer door open. An open door could entice
children to hang on the door or crawl inside the washer. Note: If there are
no small children present, leave the door ajar to prevent odor build.
• To avoid damaging the washer and personal injury, DO NOT hang on or
lean against the washer door.
• Do not place detergent, bleach or fabric softener containers on top of the
washer. They can damage the finish or controls.
Safe Stain Removal Procedures
