IM PORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
WARNING:
To reduce the risk of fire, electric shock, or injury to persons when using the washer/dryer, follow
basic precautions, including the following:
Read all instructions before using the washer/dryer.
Do not place items exposed to cooking oils in
your dryer. Items contaminated with cooking oils
may contribute to a chemical reaction that could
cause a load to catch fire.
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 washing
machine, turn on all hot water faucets and let the
water flow from each for several minutes. This will
release any accumulated hydrogen gas. As the gas
is flammable, do not smoke or use an open flame
during this time.
Do not wash or dry articles that have been previously
cleaned in, washed in, soaked in, or spotted with
gasoline, dry-cleaning solvents, other flammable,
or explosive substances as they give off vapors
that could ignite or explode.
Do not repair or replace any part of the washer/dryer
or attempt any servicing unless specifically recommended in this Use and Care Guide or in published
user-repair instructions that you understand and have
the skills to carry out.
•
Do not add gasoline, dry-cleaning solvents, or other
flammable, or explosive substances to the wash water.
These substances give off vapors that could ignite or
explode.
•
Do not allow children to play on or in the washer/dryer.
Close supervision of children is necessary when
the washer/dryer is used near children.
•
Before the washer/dryer is removed from service or discarded, remove the doors to the washer/dryer compartments.
•
Do not reach into the washer/dryer if the tub, agitator
or drum is moving.
•
•
Do not install or store the washer/dryer where it will be
exposed to the weather.
Do not tamper with controls.
• The interior of the machine and dryer exhaust vent
should be cleaned periodically by qualified service
personnel.
•
Clean dryer lint screen before or after each load.
•
•
Do not use fabric softeners or products to eliminate
static unless recommended by the manufacturer of
the fabric softener or product.
• Do not use heat to dry articles containing foam rubber
or similarly textured rubber-like materials.
Keep area around the exhaust opening and adjacent
surrounding areas free from the accumulation of lint,
dust, and dirt.
See "Electrical Requirements" section for grounding
instructions.

GROUNDING
INSTRUCTIONS
• For a grounded, cord-connected washer/dryer:
This washer/dryer must be grounded. In the event of malfunction or breakdown, grounding will reduce the risk of electric
shock by providing a path of least resistance for electric
current. This washer/dryer uses a cord having an equipmentgrounding conductor and a grounding plug. The plug must be
plugged into an appropriate outlet that is properly installed and
grounded in accordance with all local codes and ordinances.
• For a permanently connected washer/dryer:
This washer/dryer must be connected to a grounded metal,
permanent wiring system, or an equipment-grounding
conductor must be run with the circuit conductors and connected
to the equipment-grounding terminal or lead on the
washer/dryer.
WARNING:
Improper connection of the equipmentgrounding conductor can result in a risk of electric shock.
Check with a qualified electrician or service representative or
personnel if you are in doubt as to whether the washer/dryer
is properly grounded. Do not modify the plug on the power
supply cord: if it will net fit the outlet, have a proper outlet installed by a qualified electrician.

Improper venting can cause moisture and lint to collect
indoors, which may result in:
•
Moisture damage to woodwork,
paper, carpets, etc.
•
Housecleaning
furniture, paint, wall-
problems and health problems.
Use a heavy metal vent. Do not use plastic or metal foil vent.
Rigid metal vent is recommended to prevent crushing and kinking.
Flexible metal vent must be fully extended and supported when
the laundry center is in its final position. Remove excess flexible
metal vent to avoid sagging and kinking that may result in
reduced airflow.
An exhaust hood should cap the vent to prevent rodents and
insects from entering the home.
Exhaust hood must be at least 12 in. (30.5 cm) from the ground or
any object that may be in the path of the exhaust (such as
flowers, rocks or bushes, etc.).
If using an existing vent system, clean lint from the entire length
of the system and make sure exhaust hood is not plugged with
lint. Replace any plastic or metal foil vent with rigid metal or
flexible metal vent.
Use duct tape to seal all joints.

When the Cycle Control knob is set to a number and pulled out,
the washer fills (to the selected load size) before agitation and
timing start. The washer begins agitating immediately after filling;
agitation occurs with the washer lid up or down.
During agitation, the agitator creates a continuous rollover action
that provides a thorough cleaning of the wash load.
When the timer reaches Pause, the washer will drain and pause
for approximately 2 minutes while some of the wash water is
drained and replaced with rinse water.
Knit/Delicate
Use this cycle for lingerie and loosely knit items. Partway through
the cycle the washer pauses and soaks the load for more gentle
care of lightly soiled delicate items. Wash combines slow speed
agitation for gentle soil removal and slow spin speeds to reduce
wrinkling.
After agitation starts, the Cycle Control knob turns clockwise until
it points to an Off area and the cycle ends.

TIMED DRY
Auto Dry II
Use this cycle to dry most loads. Dryness is determined by
thermostats that react to the amount of moisture in the air
exhausted from the dryer. Moist air indicates clothes are damp.
Dry air indicates that moisture has been removed.
This cycle includes a 10 minute (approximately) cool down period
at the end of the cycle to make clothes easier to handle and
reduce wrinkling.
Select the correct cycle and temperature for your load.
Dry most loads using the Normal Dry (*) setting. When the cycle
ends, check the dryness of the load.
Drying tips
•
Follow care label directions when they are available.
•
•
If you use fabric softener sheets, use only ones labeled as
dryer safe. Follow package instructions.
Remove the load from the dryer as soon as tumbling stops to
reduce wrinkling. This is especially important for permanent
press, knits, and synthetic fabrics.
Cycle and temperature tips
•
Dry most loads using the Normal Dry setting (*).
•
Use a More Dry setting for drying heavyweight items such as
towels and work clothes.
•
Use a Normal Dry setting for drying medium weight items,
such as sheets, underwear, permanent press fabrics, and
some knits.
Use a Less Dry setting for drying lightweight
lingerie, blouses, dresses, and some knits.
items such as
Use a no heat (air) setting for rubber, plastic or heat sensitive
fabrics.
•
Line dry bonded or laminated fabrics.
If you are unsure of the temperature to select for a load, select a
lower setting rather than a higher setting.
NOTE: If you have questions about drying temperatures
various loads, refer to the care label directions.

for
•
If the load is drier than you like, select a setting closer to
LESS DRY the next time you dry a similar load.
•
If the load is not as dry as you like, complete drying using the
Timed Dry cycle. The next time you dry a similar load, select a
setting closer to MORE DRY.
NOTE: Drying time with an automatic cycle varies according to
the type of fabric, size of load, and temperature setting. See
"Drying, Cycle and Temperature Tips."
Timed Dry
Use this cycle to complete drying if items are still damp after the
Auto Dry II cycle. Timed Dry is also useful for heavyweight and
bulky items, such as bedspreads, work clothes, and large loads
that require a long drying time. Use this cycle to get up to 110
minutes of heated drying time. The heating cycle is followed by a
10 minute (approximately) cool down period.
Touch Up
Use this cycle to smooth synthetic and permanent press clothes
that are clean but wrinkled from being crowded in a closet or
suitcase. This setting provides approximately 10 minutes of
heated tumbling followed by a 10 minute (approximately) cool
down period. Remove clothes immediately when tumbling stops.
Air Dry
Use the Air Dry cycle for items that require drying without heat
such as rubber, plastic and heat sensitive fabrics. This chart
shows examples of items that can be dried using an air cycle.

The lint screen is located on the back wall of the dryer. Remove
lint before each load. A screen blocked by lint can increase
drying time.
To clean
1.
Pull out the lint screen and its cover.
2.
Separate the cover and the screen by squeezing the screen
and pulling on the cover at the same time.

Foam rubber pillows are slow to dry.
End of Cycle Signal
Your dryer sounds a signal when a drying cycle is finished.This
signal is helpful when you are drying items that need to be
removed as soon as the dryer stops in order to prevent wrinkles.
LAUNDRY CENTER
CARE
1, Screen
2. Cover
3.
Roll lint off the screen with your fingers. Do not rinse or wash
screen to remove lint. Wet lint is hard to remove.
Cleaning the exterior
Use a soft, damp cloth or sponge to wipe up any spills such as
detergent or bleach. Occasionally wipe the outside of your
washer to keep it looking new.
Cleaning the interior
Clean your washer interior by mixing 1 cup (250 mL) of chlorine
bleach and 2 scoops or caps full of detergent. Pour this into your
washer and run it through a complete cycle using hot water.
Repeat this process if necessary.
NOTE: Remove any hard water deposits using only cleaners
labeled as washer safe.
4.
Put the lint screen and cover back together and push firmly
back into place.
IMPORTANT:
•
Replace inlet hoses after 5 years of use to reduce the risk of hose
failure. Periodically inspect and replace inlet hoses if bulges,
kinks, cuts, wear, or leaks are found.
Do not run the dryer with the lint screen loose, damaged,
blocked, or missing. Doing so can cause overheating and
damage to both the dryer and fabrics.
Some towels made of synthetic fibers and natural fibers
(polyester and cotton blends) may shed more lint than other
towels, causing your dryer's lint screen to fill up faster. Be
sure to remove lint from the lint screen before and after drying
new towels.
When replacing your inlet hoses, mark the date of replacement
on the label with a permanent marker.
•
If lint falls off the screen into the dryer during removal, check
the exhaust hood and remove lint. See "Venting
Requirements."
As needed cleaning
Laundry detergent and fabric softener residue can build up on the
lint screen. This buildup can cause longer drying times for your
clothes, or cause the dryer to stop before your load is completely
dry. The screen is probably clogged if lint falls off the screen.
Clean the lint screen (as outlined following) every 6 months, or
more frequently if it becomes clogged due to a residue buildup.
23
To wash
1. Roll lint off the screen with your fingers.
2. Wet both sides of lint screen with hot water.
3.
Wet a nylon brush with hot water and liquid detergent. Scrub
lint screen with the brush to remove residue buildup.
Install and store your laundry center where it will not freeze.
Because some water may stay in the hoses, freezing can damage
your laundry center. If storing or moving your laundry center
during freezing weather, winterize it.
Non-use
