IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
WARNING
To reduce the risk of fire, electrical shock, or injury to persons when using this washer, comply with the basic
warnings listed below. Failure to comply with these warnings could result in serious personal injuries.
You can be killed or seriously injured if you don’t follow these Important Safety Instructions:
PREVENT FIRE
• Do not wash items that have been previously cleaned
in, soaked in, or spotted with gasoline, cleaning solvents, kerosene, cooking oils, waxes, etc. Do not store
these items on or near the washer. These substances
give off vapors or chemical reactions that could ignite
or explode.
• Do not put oily or greasy rags or clothing on top of the
washer. These substances give off vapors that could
ignite the materials.
• Do not add gasoline, cleaning solvents, or other flammable or explosive substances to the wash water.
These substances give off vapors that could ignite or
explode.
• Under certain conditions, hydrogen gas may be produced in a hot water system that has not been used
for 2 weeks or more. HYDROGEN GAS IS EXPLOSIVE.
If the hot water system has not been used for such a
period, before using the washer, turn on all hot water
faucets and let the water flow from each for several
minutes. This will release any accumulated hydrogen
gas. Hydrogen gas is flammable; do not smoke or use
an open flame during this time.
• Do not store or use gasoline or other flammable vapors
or liquids in the vicinity of this or any other appliance.
• Failure to comply with these warnings could result in
fire, explosion, serious bodily injury and/or damage to
the rubber or plastic parts of the washer.
PROTECT CHILDREN
• Do not allow children to play on or in the washer. Close
supervision of children is necessary when the washer
is used near children. As children grow, teach them the
proper, safe use of all appliances.
• Destroy the carton, plastic bag and other packing materials after the washer is unpacked. Children might use
them for play. Cartons covered with rugs, bedspreads
or plastic sheets can become airtight chambers.
• Keep laundry products out of children’s reach. To prevent personal injury, observe all warnings on product
labels.
• Before the washer is removed from service or discarded, remove the washer door to prevent accidental
entrapment.
• Failure to comply with these warnings could result in
serious personal injuries.

IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
PREVENT INJURY
• To prevent shock hazard and assure stability during
operation, the washer must be installed and electrically
grounded by a qualified service person in accordance
with local codes. Installation instructions are packed in
the washer for installer’s reference. Refer to INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS for detailed grounding
procedures. If the washer is moved to a new location,
have it checked and reinstalled by a qualified service
person.
• To prevent personal injury or damage to the washer,
the electrical power cord of the washer must be
plugged into a properly grounded and polarized
3-prong outlet. The third grounding prong must never
be removed. Never ground the washer to a gas pipe.
Do not use an extension cord or an adaptor plug.
• Follow package directions when using laundry products.
Incorrect usage can produce poisonous gas - resulting
in serious injury or death.
• Do not combine laundry products for use in 1 load unless specified on the label.
• Do not mix chlorine bleach with ammonia or acids such
as vinegar.
WARNING
FIRE/ELECTRICAL SHOCK HAZARD

adaptor plug or extension cord or remove grounding
prong from electrical power cord. Failure to follow this
warning can cause serious injury, fire or death.
PREVENT INJURY AND DAMAGE TO THE WASHER
To prevent serious personal injury and damage to the
washer:
• All repairs and servicing must be performed by an
authorized servicer unless specifically recommended
in this Use & Care Guide. Use only authorized factory
parts.
• Do not tamper with controls.
• Do not install or store the washer where it will be exposed to the weather.
• Do not install on carpet. Install washer on a solid floor.
It may be necessary to reinforce the floor to prevent
vibration or movement.
• To reduce the risk of electric shock, disconnect this
appliance from the power supply before attempting
any user maintenance. Turning the controls to the OFF
position does not disconnect this appliance from the
power supply.
• To prevent injury, do not reach into the washer while
parts are moving. Before loading, unloading or adding items, push in the cycle selector knob and allow
the drum to coast to a complete stop before reaching
inside.

OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
Normal Operating Sounds
A
You may or may not hear the following sounds from your
new washer:
B
A. DRAIN HOSE The washer has a flexible drain hose
to carry water from the washer to the stand pipe of
your home. You will hear water flowing into your stand
pipe. This is a normal part of the operation of the
washer.
B. WATER VALVES/DISPENSER As water enters
the dispenser system, it is common to hear a water
flowing sound. This normal sound will vary slightly
based on the water pressure in your home.
C. DRAIN PUMP Your washer is equipped with a high
velocity drain pump. It is normal to hear humming and
gurgling sounds as water is pumped from the washer.
Both of these sounds are normal and indicate that
your pump is functioning correctly.
D
D. HIGH SPEED MOTOR A powerful motor is used to
drive the drum to high spin speeds to extract water
from your load. You will hear a sound associated with
these higher spin speeds. This sound is normal and
will vary slightly as the spin speed varies with load size
and cycle selected.
C
CAUTION
Abnormal, on-going sounds may be an indication of a
pending washer failure and should be investigated by a
qualified technician.

STAIN REMOVAL GUIDE
Safe Stain Removal Procedures
To reduce the risk of fire or serious injury to persons or
property, comply with the basic warnings listed below:
• Read and comply with all instructions on stain removal products.
• Keep stain removal products in their original labeled
containers and out of children’s reach.
WARNING
HARMFUL VAPOR HAZARD
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.
• Thoroughly wash any utensils used.
• Do not combine stain removal products, especially
ammonia and chlorine bleach. Dangerous fumes can
result.
• Never wash items which have been previously
cleaned in, washed in, soaked in or spotted with
gasoline, dry cleaning solvents or other flammable
or explosive substances because they give off vapors
that could ignite or explode.
• Never use highly flammable solvents, such as gasoline, inside the home. Vapors can explode on contact
with flames or sparks.
For Successful Stain Removal:
• Remove stains promptly.
• Determine the kind of stain, then follow the recommended treatment in the stain removal chart on the
next page.
• To pretreat stains, use a prewash product, liquid
detergent, or a paste made from powder detergent
and water.
• Use cold water on unknown stains because hot water
can set stains.
• Consult care label instructions for treatments to avoid
on specific fabrics.
• Check for colorfastness by testing stain remover products on an inside seam.
• Rinse and wash items after stain removal.

For best results
Follow the fabric care label instructions
on items to be washed.

To help prevent odors, mold or mildew, leave the door
open for a few hours after use or whenever the washer is
not in use.
CAUTION
ENTRAPMENT and TIP-OVER HAZARD
Do not leave the door open if there are small children
or pets present. An open door could entice children to
hang on the door or crawl inside the washer. If there
are no small children present, you may leave the door
ajar to prevent odor build up.
TO REFRESH OR CLEAN INSIDE OF WASHER
To clean and freshen the washer, perform the System
Clean Cycle. For best results use the System Clean Cycle
once a month. To begin the cycle, press and hold the
Spin Speed and Options buttons simultaneously for 10
seconds until the display changes to “CLn”.
Press and hold both for ten seconds
to enter System Clean cycle.
IMPORTANT
Items left in washer while performing the System Clean
Cycle will cause a severe out-of-balance situation that
could damage the washing machine.
REMOVE ALL ITEMS FROM WASH DRUM before filling
the detergent chamber with one (1) cup of liquid chlorine
bleach OR one (1) pouch of TIDE® WASHING MACHINE
CLEANER. DO NOT use both. Press Start/Pause to
begin.
For best results
Immediately follow up with a Spin Only
Cycle. Select Extra Rinse on Max Spin
Speed with no detergent or bleach to
help clear any residual bleach left after
the System Clean Cycle.
NOTE
If the System Clean Cycle is cancelled or paused during
the cycle, the washer will go through 2 rinse cycles to
clean the drum of any residual bleach before unlocking
the door.
18
WARNING
