IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
(Save These Instructions)
a WARNING
To reduce the risk of fire,
electric shock, serious
injury or death to persons
when using your washer,
follow these basic
precautions:
1. Read all instructions before
using the washer.
2. Refer to the EARTHING
INSTRUCTIONS in the
INSTALLATION manual for
the proper earthing of the
washer.
3. Do not wash 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
vapours that could ignite or
explode.
4. Do not allow children to play
on or in the washer. Close
supervision of children is
necessary when the washer is
used near children. This is a
safety rule for all appliances.
5. Before the washer is removed
from service or discarded,
remove the lid to the washing
compartment.
6. Do not reach into the washer
if the washtub is revolving.
7. Do not install or store the
washer where it will be
exposed to water and/or
weather.
8. Do not tamper with the
controls.
37006
9. Do not repair or replace any
part of the washer, or attempt
any servicing unless
specifically recommended in
the user-maintenance
instructions or in published
user-repair instructions that
you understand and have the
skills to carry out.
10. Do not add gasoline,
dry-cleaning solvents, or
other flammable or explosive
substances to the wash
water. These substances give
off vapours that could ignite
or explode.
11. Under certain conditions,
hydrogen gas may be
produced in a hot water
system that has not been
used for two weeks or more.
HYDROGEN GAS IS
EXPLOSIVE. If the hot water
system has not been used for
such a period, before using a
washing machine or
combination washer-dryer,
turn on all hot water taps and
let the water flow from each
for several minutes. This will
release any accumulated
hydrogen gas. THE GAS IS
FLAMMABLE, DO NOT
SMOKE OR USE AN OPEN
FLAME DURING THIS TIME.
12. To reduce the risk of an
electric shock or fire, DO NOT
use an extension cord or an
adapter to connect the
washer to the electrical power
source.
13. Use your washer only for its
intended purpose, washing
clothes.
3
14. ALWAYS disconnect the
washer from electrical supply
before attempting any service.
Disconnect the power cord by
grasping the plug, not the
cord.
15. Install the washer according
to the INSTALLATION
INSTRUCTIONS. All
connections for water, drain,
electrical power and earthing
must comply with local codes
and be made by licensed
personnel when required. Do
not do it yourself unless you
know how!
16. To reduce the risk of fire,
clothes which have traces of
any flammable substances
such as vegetable oil, cooking
oil, machine oil, flammable
chemicals, thinner, etc. must
not be put into the washer.
These flammable substances
may cause the fabric to catch
on fire by itself.
17. Do not use fabric softeners or
products to eliminate static
unless recommended by the
manufacturer of the fabric
softener or product.
18. Keep your washer in good
condition. Bumping or
dropping the washer can
damage safety features. If
this occurs, have your washer
checked by a qualified
serviceman.
19. Replace worn power cords
and/or loose plugs.
20. Be sure water connections
have a shut-off valve and that
fill hose connections are tight.
CLOSE the shut-off valves at
the end of each wash day.
21. Loading door MUST BE
CLOSED any time the washer
is spinning. DO NOT by-pass
the loading door switch by
permitting the washer to spin
with the loading door open. A
brake will stop the washtub
within seconds if the loading
door is opened during
spinning. If the washtub does
not stop when the loading door
is opened, remove the washer
from use and call the
serviceman.
22. Always read and follow
manufacturer’s instructions on
packages of laundry and
cleaning aids. Heed all
warnings or precautions. To
reduce the risk of poisoning or
chemical burns, keep them out
of the reach of children at all
times (preferably in a locked
cabinet).
NOTE: The WARNING AND
IMPORTANT SAFETY
INSTRUCTIONS appearing in
this manual are not meant to
cover all possible conditions and
situations that may occur. It must
be understood that common
sense, caution and carefulness
are factors which CANNOT be
built into the washer. These
factors MUST BE supplied by the
person(s) installing, maintaining,
or operating the washer.
Always contact your dealer,
distributor, service agent or the
manufacturer about any
problems or conditions you do
not understand.
23. Always follow the fabric care
instructions supplied by the
garment manufacturer.
24. Never operate the washer with
any guards and/or panels
removed.
25. DO NOT operate the washer
with missing or broken parts.
26. DO NOT by-pass any safety
devices.
27. Failure to install, maintain,
and/or operate this
machine according to the
manufacturer’s instructions
may result in conditions which
can produce bodily injury
and/or property damage.

Before Washing . . .
Prepare Wash Load
Empty Pockets and Cuffs
Make sure all pockets are empty
and turn them inside out. One
bobby pin, metal or plastic toy,
nail or sharp object in a load can
catch laundry and cause tears.
Facial tissue left in a pocket will
produce extreme “lint”. A crayon
or lipstick in a wash load may
cause stains that cannot be
removed. Roll down cuffs and
shake out grass, sand, and
gravel.
Mend Rips and Tears
Little holes can become bigger in
the washer. Mend holes and tears
before placing garments in the
washer.
Close Zipper and Fasten Hooks
These can catch on garments in a
wash load and tear them. Tie
belts and sashes so they won’t
wind around clothes.
Remove Nonwashable Trim
Check for colourfastness too, by
squeezing a portion of garment in
warm or hot sudsy water. If the
colour bleeds or runs, wash the
item separately in cold water.
Sort
3. Sort by Care Label
Proper sorting is easy if you
follow a few guidelines:
Cold

2. Sort by Fabric and
Construction
Cottons and
Linens
Synthetics,
Blends & Poly Knits
4. Sort By Type and Amount of
Soil
Children’s play clothes, as well
as work clothes, will need extra
treatment. Lightly soiled
clothes can become dingy if
washed with heavily soiled
items.
5. Sort Lint “Shedders” From
Lint “Receivers”
Some fabrics attract lint and
should not be washed with lintshedding loads. Lint shedders
are cottons, terry towels,
chenille bedspreads, rugs, and
clothes which have been
heavily bleached.
Lint receivers are synthetics,
permanent or durable press,
knits (including socks),
corduroy, and other smooth
fabrics.

Pretreat shirt collars and cuffs
with a pre-wash product or liquid
detergent when placing them in
the washer. Before washing, treat
special stains with bar soap,
liquid detergent or a paste of
water and granular detergent.
Use a pretreat soil and stain
remover.
Loading the Washer . . .
Load Articles
Load Sizes
Load items by the amount of
space they take up, not by their
weight. Mix large and small items
in a load to get the best washing
results.
Small
Drop items loosely into the
washtub. The bulk of the clothes
rather than the weight will
determine load size. Do not pack
items in or wrap them around the
agitator. Overloading can cause
poor cleaning, excessive
wrinkling, and tears.

W280IE0A
W282IE1A
Items should move freely through
the wash water for best cleaning
results. Items should rollover —
sink and then reappear.
The water level in your washer
should fit the size of your wash
load. Small loads will use lower
water levels. There must be
enough water in the washtub to
allow items to move and turn over
freely.
When washing very large items,
do not fill washtub as full as with
other loads.
Overloading the washtub can
result in poor washing and rinsing.
Overloading may also cause
wrinkling and tearing of items.
IMPORTANT: If in doubt always
use a higher water level. Most
average loads will require water
setting of Large. Failure to have
the correct volume of water
relative to the load will increase
the incidence of excessive lint.

Water . . .
Water Hardness
Soft Water
0 to 10 milligrams
per litre
Moderately Hard
Water
300 milligrams
per litre
Hard Water
500 milligrams
per litre
Very Hard Water
Over 500 milligrams
per litre
W120IE0D
Water hardness is measured in
grains per gallon (G.P.G.) or parts
per million (P.P.M.). To learn your
water hardness, call your Water
Department or State Extension
Service. Hard water will not
remove soil as well as soft water
and can result in grey, dingy
laundry. To get clothes clean in
hard water, use more detergent.
Do not use soap.
Hard Water May Be Softened
By:
1. A mechanical water softener
installed in your home.
2. The use of a packaged
non-precipitating water
conditioner.
Soft Water
Water should be soft enough to
allow soaps and detergents to
remove soil effectively. Clothes
will be whiter and brighter when
washed and rinsed in soft water.
Iron
Wash Temperature
If iron is present in the water, the
clothes may become an all-over
yellow or they may be stained
with brown or orange spots or
streaks. Iron is not always visible
in the water.
Hot Water
Hot water will give the best results
of cleaning and sanitizing, but it is
not suitable for all items. It is best
for sturdy whites and colourfast
items, heavily soiled items and
nappies.
Solutions to Iron Problems
The installation of a water
softener will remove small
amounts of iron from the water
supply. The installation of an iron
filter may be necessary for more
severe cases. If the iron comes
from the pipes, it may be
sufficient just to let the water run
into the empty washer for about
one minute. This may help to
clear the pipes. Spin this water
out of the washtub before starting
the wash.
If iron comes from the water
heater, drain the heater
occasionally to remove the rust.
If the Iron Condition Cannot Be
Corrected
Prepare the wash water first by
adding detergent (not soap), then
add the clothes to the washtub.
Use a phosphate detergent. The
phosphate content of a detergent
is listed on the package side
panel.
Add a nonprecipitating water
conditioner to the washtub just
before the rinse water enters. Do
not use fabric softener in the rinse
water if a packaged water
conditioner is used.
Warm Water
By using warm water, there is
less chance of colour loss in
items. Warm water also reduces
wrinkling in permanent press
items. Use with light and
moderate soils, non-colourfast or
dark colours, permanent press,
silks, woollens, nylon, and acrylic.
Cold Water
Cold water is less effective in
cleaning than hot or warm water,
but it does minimize wrinkling and
colour fading. Use it for washing
extra-sensitive clothes and for the
rinsing of all fabrics.
Energy
You can save energy when
washing by following a few
guidelines:
1. Heating water accounts for the
greatest energy expense when
washing. Save on heating
water by using cold rinses.
2. Wash full loads, but do not
overload.
3. Use soak cycles for heavily
soiled items to reduce wash
times.
4. Select a shorter wash time for
lightly soiled items.
Iron With Chlorine Bleach
The use of chlorine bleach with
water that contains iron will make
the rust discolouration worse. Use
an “all fabric” bleach.

Soaps
Use
Comments
• Use a soaking agent either during the soak cycle or
overnight to remove stains and soils.
• Do not use a soaking
agent with chlorine
bleach.
• Always follow manufacturer’s instructions with any
pretreatment product.
• Do not use pretreaters
around the washer or
dryer control panel. They
may harm the finish or
panel markings.
• You may use detergent or soap in your washer. The
determining factor is the hardness of the water. Always
use detergent if the water is over three grains hard.
• Soap and nonphosphate
powdered detergents
will not give good
water. Soap in hard
water will form sticky
deposits.
• The use of powdered
soap is not
recommended when
washing in cold water.
Bleaches
• Use to remove certain stains, disinfect, and keep clothes
white.
• When using liquid
chlorine bleach, always
use the bleach
dispenser.
• Use bleach in the wash water only. Do not use bleach in
the rinse.
• Always measure the
bleach. Never exceed
one cup of bleach per
full load.
• Follow directions on care label of garment.
• Never use chlorine
bleach and ammonia in
the same wash
cycle.
• Bleach should not be used as a substitute for detergent.
Use the recommended amount of bleach.
Fabric
Softeners
• Use to soften clothes and remove static electricity from
permanent press knits and other fabrics of man-made
fibres.
• Undiluted fabric
softener poured directly
on clothes can stain
them.
• Use the fabric softener dispenser on your machine.
Follow bottle directions carefully.
• Do not mix with
detergent or bleach.
Water
Conditioners
Non-Precipitating
Type
• These products soften water by tying up the hardness
minerals. Recommended if using soap with water over
three grains hard, or when using nonphosphate
detergents.
Precipitating Type
• These products settle out hardness minerals by
converting them into particles that will not dissolve in the
water. If used with nonphosphate detergent or soap in
hard water, a deposit may form on the clothes and
washer parts.

• Do not use with
nonphosphate
detergents or soaps.

Bleach Dispenser
The bleach dispenser is located in
the left front corner, under the
loading door.
Use liquid bleach in the
dispenser.
Use no more than one cup
chlorine bleach for large loads,
three-quarters cup for medium
and one-half cup for small loads.
Carefully pour recommended
amount of bleach into the
dispenser during the first fill of the
washer.
Be careful not to spill undiluted
bleach. It is a strong chemical and
can damage some fabrics if it is
not properly diluted.
Powdered bleach must not be
used in the bleach dispenser. Add
powdered bleach to the wash
water.
Fabric Softener
Dispenser and
Agitator
To Use Dispenser
After the clothes are loaded into
the washtub and before the start
of the WASH CYCLE, pour the
proper amount of liquid fabric
softener into the bottle measuring
cap (see bottle directions). Pour
into dispenser.
• Saves energy.
Reduces colour fading.
The large fabric softener
dispenser allows for the fabric
softener to be diluted with water.
We recommend adding water up
to the fill level. Do not exceed tip
of arrow which indicates correct fill
level. Over-filling can allow fabric
softener to spill onto the clothes.
Setting the water level to medium
or higher will result in better
performance from the fabric
softener.
The fabric softener will remain in
the dispenser during the wash fill,
agitation and spin. At the end of
the wash spin, the liquid fabric
softener will be dispensed into the
washtub through the slots in the
agitator and will be mixed with the
incoming rinse water.
To Clean The Dispenser
Remove the dispenser housing
from agitator by squeezing the
lower part of the dispenser, pulling
directly upward and at the same
time tilting slightly. This will
expose the dispenser cup, which
is also removable for cleaning
(refer to illustration). Both housing
and cup can be soaked in hot
soapy water and rinsed clean.
The funnel shape in top of agitator
also needs to be cleaned. The
hole and the slots in the two rings
will require using a small brush for
proper cleaning.
Use Tips
• Fabric softener spilled onto
garments may cause staining.
To remove, soak in a soapy
solution made with Sard
Wonder Soap or rub the stain
with a bar of Sard, then wash.
• Liquid fabric softeners will be
dispensed during the final rinse
and should not be combined
with bleach, bluing, starch,
detergents, soaps or packaged
water conditioners during this
rinse.
• Fabric softener is not to be
used in dispenser when using
Soak/Prewash cycle.
• When adding detergent to
wash water, do not allow any to
enter into softener dispenser
cup, as softener will become
gummy.
To prevent softener buildup, the
dispenser can be filled with clean
water for automatic cleaning. This
can be done in washing cycles
other than when softener is used.

How To Use Your Washer . . .
Operation Instructions
a WARNING
To reduce the risk of fire,
electric shock, serious
injury or death to
persons, read the
IMPORTANT SAFETY
INSTRUCTIONS, Pages 3
and 4, before operating
the washer.
Determine Proper
Cycle
Regular
Use for sturdy items, like play or
work clothes, towels, T-shirts, etc.
The wash time selection will
depend on the type of fabric and
the amount of soil. For the best
results when cleaning heavily
soiled items, use a longer wash
time (15 minutes maximum).
Lightly soiled items require less
wash time.
Permanent Press/Knits
Use for permanent press items
and synthetics. The wash time
selection will depend upon the
type of fabric and amount of soil.
The PERMANENT PRESS/
KNITS cycle automatically cools
the temperature of the fibres
before the spin. After wash the
agitation stops, the washtub spins
slowly, partially drains and then
stops. Cold water will then be
automatically added to the
washtub until the proper water
level is reached. This happens
one or two times, depending on
the size of the load and type of
drain connection. When the
COOL DOWN is complete, the
washer will pause for
approximately one minute before
continuing the cycle.
Soak/Prewash (With Options
switch OFF)
Use for heavily soiled or stained
clothing. Turn timer knob to the
beginning of the SOAK/
PREWASH cycle. Pull timer knob
out to start the water fill. Add
detergent to the washtub, then
place the load into the tub. Close
lid. After fill is completed, agitation
will begin. This cycle has
alternate periods of agitation and
soaking. After the soak/agitation
period is over the washer will go
into an infinite pause and remain
there. Do not leave clothes sit in
washer overnight. To complete
the cycle, manually advance the
timer to spin. After spin, select
appropriate cycle and pull timer
out to start the water fill. Once the
water mixes with the clothes, add
detergent.
Soak/Prewash (Using the
Options switch)
See Options on Page 11.
Delicates/Woollens
Use this cycle to wash delicates
and machine washable woollens.
A full tub of warm water is
recommended (even for small
loads) to alllow these items to
move freely through the water.
More water helps reduce fabric
wear, wrinkling, and provides for
a clean wash. (See Page 12 for
further details).
Both wash and spin actions are at
slow speed.
Super Wash
Use this cycle for very heavily
soiled or stained clothing. This
cycle will go through the Soak/
Prewash, Regular and Extra
Rinse cycles. The option switch
must be on Super Wash for this
cycle.
Extra Rinse
Use this cycle for items you would
like to have rinsed only. The
washtub will fill to the level you
have selected on the LOAD SIZE
control. Washer will agitate for
five minutes, pause for two
minutes and 19 seconds and will
spin for seven minutes.
10
To Wash Clothes
IMPORTANT: Before using your
new washer, make sure the
washer cord is plugged into a 240
Volt electrical outlet that has the
proper earthing and polarity, that
the washer hoses are connected
to the hot and cold water taps,
and that the taps are turned on.
Be sure the drain hose is not
kinked and is inserted into a
drain. See the INSTALLATION
INSTRUCTIONS for details of
proper washer installation.
1. Get the clothes ready for
washing. Empty pockets and
cuffs. Sort items into separate
loads. Pretreat stains and
heavily soiled areas.
2. Measure and add detergent to
the washtub after the water
level has exceeded two inches.
3. Add clothes loosely into the
washtub.
4. Close the loading door. The
washer will not spin with the
loading door open.
a WARNING
DO NOT by-pass the
loading door switch by
permitting the washer to
spin with the loading door
open.
5. Set WASH/RINSE
temperatures.
CPW75-IN
37006
NOTE: The washer will provide a
cold rinse in all TEMPERATURE
settings except in positions
marked HOT wash WARM rinse
or WARM wash WARM rinse.
DO NOT use a warm rinse with
permanent press or other
synthetic fabrics. A warm rinse
can cause wrinkling in some
garments. Cold rinses will save
you money and energy and will
help reduce wrinkling in
permanent press and synthetics.
6. Set LOAD SIZE (WATER
LEVEL) control. Use RESET if
agitation has started and more
water is needed.
8. Pull the timer knob out to start
the water fill. Agitation will begin
when the water reaches the
level you selected.
The washer will stop (pause) for
approximately two minutes
before the wash and rinse
spins. Do not turn the timer
through these pauses. They are
part of the cycle.
Timer
Although the washer cycles are
automatic, the timer may be reset
to lengthen, shorten, or repeat a
portion of a cycle.
To set or reset the timer, push
timer knob in to stop the washer.
Hold timer knob in firmly while
turning it clockwise to the setting
desired. Pull timer knob out to
start the washer.
Options
CPW76-IN
IMPORTANT: Holding the LOAD
SIZE (WATER LEVEL) control in
the RESET position can cause
flooding of the washer.
7. Select the cycle according to
the type of fabric being
washed. Push the timer knob
in and turn clockwise to the
desired cycle and wash time.
Prewash
Use for heavily soiled or stained
clothing. When the PREWASH
setting is selected, the washer will
automatically go through the
SOAK/PREWASH and the
REGULAR cycle. First, add
detergent into the wash tub, then
place the wash load into the tub.
Fill softener dispenser in agitator
with liquid detergent diluted with
water.
Extra Rinse
Use for heavy clothing such as
denim, towels, etc., where an
additional deep rinse may be
desired. When the EXTRA RINSE
setting is selected, the washer will
automatically go through the
REGULAR cycle and a second
deep RINSE cycle.
Drip Dry
Use this setting for clothing you
want to remove from the washer
very wet. In this setting the
washer will drain the water out but
not spin.
If certain items need to be spun
out, return the OPTIONS switch to
the OFF position and the cycle
will progress through the final
spin. There is no need to advance
the timer knob.
Super Wash
This setting is a combination of
the PREWASH and the EXTRA
RINSE cycles. When the SUPER
WASH setting is selected, the
washer will automatically go
through the SOAK/PREWASH,
REGULAR, and EXTRA RINSE
cycles. First, add detergent into
the wash tub, then place the
wash load into the wash tub. Fill
softener dispenser in agitator with
liquid detergent diluted with water.
IMPORTANT: Dispenser must be
cleaned before and after using
detergent. Refer to dispenser
cleaning section, Page 9.

Special Care . . .
Starching
Starching adds crispness and
body to fabrics, enhances soil
resistance, and makes ironing
easier. There are several types of
starches. Carefully follow label
directions for spray or hand
starching or starching in the
washer.
Knits
A variety of knits are being used
for many types of clothing and
household furnishings. Many knits
are machine washable, some are
hand washable, and some must
be dry-cleaned. When buying,
make sure the garment has a
care label with care instructions.
These directions must be
followed. Some knits are
stretched during their
manufacture and may shrink or
relax when exposed to water.
Cotton Knits
Unless the label indicates that it is
preshrunk, cotton knits will
probably shrink to some degree.
Overdrying contributes to
shrinkage of cotton knits.
Wash water should be hot or
warm suitable for colour and soil.
The rinse water should be cold.
Rayon Knits
Rayon stretches and shrinks
easily. Treat as a delicate fabric
and wash gently.
Synthetic Fibre Knits
Knits made from synthetic fibres
or blends containing a high
percentage of synthetics will
generally keep their shape. When
buying, make sure the trimmings
(including belts) are machine
washable, seams are not
puckered, and zippers and
trimmings are well fastened.
Knits of Man-Made Fibres
In general, follow the rules for
permanent press fabrics as
they tend to have the same
characteristics. Set machine to
PERMANENT PRESS cycle.
Set the wash water warm, or
suitable for colour and soil. Rinse
water should be cold. Do not
wash with lint-shedding fabrics.
Separate items for colour,
washing whites separately.
Sweaters of Man-Made Fibres
Follow directions for knits. Button
sweaters and turn inside out. The
ribbon behind the buttons and
button holes may shrink. Stretch
to shape after washing. Orlon
sweaters may stretch. Avoid
pulling them when wet. Dryer dry.
Woollens
The Delicates/Woollens cycle on
your Kleenmaid is specially
designed for machine washable
woollens. Follow these guidelines
for woollens.
• Check the care label on all
garments — follow its
instructions. Never wash
woollens in your machine which
doesn't have a MACHINE
WASHABLE label.
• Select the DELICATES/
WOOLLENS cycle, set water
level to LARGE and WASH/
RINSE Temp. to WARM/
WARM. Don't overload —
woollens (in particular) need
freedom to tumble in plenty of
water.
• Choose a mild detergent
recommended for washing
wool.
• Dry woollens by lying them flat
on a towel. Ease them back into
original shape and size while
still wet. Avoid direct sunlight.
Delicates
The Kleenmaid Delicates/
Woollens cycle provides not only
a gentle (slow) agitator action, it
also pauses frequently to avoid
tangling fine and delicate
garments. Nonetheless, it is
recommended that you take the
extra care of placing your most
delicate items (e.g. lace) inside a
washing bag.

Permanent Press
Permanent or durable press
garments and household items
will usually not need pressing
when washed and dried properly.
However, some will be more
wrinkle resistant than others.
The care needed for permanent
press is a little different than for
cottons. Permanent press will
soften or become pliable when
heated. This softening when it is
in warm or hot wash water will
allow wear wrinkles to be
removed. It will also cause the
fabric to wrinkle if it is crushed,
squeezed or spun when hot.
Permanent press cycles of
washers, when washer controls
are properly set, will cool the
clothes before the wash spin to
avoid wrinkling.
How To Wash Permanent Press
1. Wash often. Permanent press
clothes tend to look clean even
when they should be washed.
2. Sort loads correctly, refer to
Page 5.
3. Do not wash with lint-shedding
loads. Permanent press
attracts lint in the wash water.
4. Pre-treat grease stains and oily
areas. This is especially
important for shirt collars and
cuffs. Rub liquid detergent or a
paste of detergent into the
area.
5. Use the PERMANENT
PRESS/KNITS cycle, hot or
warm water, cold rinse,
agitation and spin speed
suitable for fabric and sufficient
detergent.
6. Use fabric softener in the rinse
water. This will reduce the
static electricity which attracts
lint and makes garments cling.
To Dry Permanent Press
For best results, permanent press
must be dryer dried. See garment
care labels.

Washing Problems . . .
To keep clothes looking white or bright, use good washing practices at all times to prevent a gradual build-up
of soil or water hardness minerals on them. If you notice that your clothes are not as bright as they should be,
take corrective measures immediately.
Grey or Dingy
Clothes
Solution
Cause
Problem
Insufficient Detergent
Add more detergent to washtub before
loading clothes. Mild detergents are not
suitable for average soil.
Improper Sorting
Wash whites separately. Separate light
from heavily soiled items. Clothes can
pick up soil from dirty wash water.
Nonphosphate Detergent and Hard Water
Follow package directions. Soften water if
possible.
Water Not Hot Enough
White clothes will stay whiter with hot
wash water. Increase temperature.
Overcrowding Washer
Clothes must circulate freely through the
water for best results.
Yellowed Clothes Unremoved Soil
Clothes Tearing
or Damage
Excessive Lint
Skin soil is hard to remove. Check hem
edge of sheets and pillowcases, bottom
end of t-shirts, etc. If this portion is
white and center is yellow, the fabric
contains unremoved soil. Use sufficient
detergent and a hot wash. Chlorine
bleach may be needed.
Clothes Stained From Iron In The Water
To test if an iron stain, use a rust remover
on a portion of the garment. Follow
bottle directions for larger items.
Older Clothes
Some white fabrics turn yellow with age
and cannot be whitened.
Improper Use of Chlorine Bleach
No correction for bleach damaged clothes.
Always measure and dilute bleach.
Overcrowding or Overloading
Make sure all items can move freely
during agitation.
Insufficient Precare
Fasten all hooks and zippers. Mend tears.
Remove objects from pockets.
Improper Sorting
Fabrics which shed lint cannot be washed
with fabrics that receive lint.
Insufficient Detergent
Use enough detergent so that lint remains
suspended in water and flushed out.
Mixing Fabric Types
Knits and Permanent Press attract lint.
Wash these only with similar items. Use
fabric softener in rinse water.
Insufficient Water Level
Select proper/higher water level for size of
wash load.

37006
Stain Removal . . .
Many soils will not become stains if treated promptly. Older stains may be difficult or impossible to remove.
Hot water will set some stains, particularly protein based stains. Use cold or warm water on these before
washing in hot water.
a WARNING
Never put highly flammable substances like gasoline, kerosene, waxes, vegetable oils, cooking oils,
etc. into a washer or dryer. Never put articles that have been cleaned with such substances into a
washer or dryer. Failure to comply with these warnings could result in a fire, explosion, and/or severe
burns or death. All items with these substances on them should be thoroughly hand-washed with a
detergent so that no trace of the flammable substances remains. The articles can then be machine
washed and/or dried.
When using any kind of a dry-cleaning fluid, follow the manufacturer's recommendations. The fumes
should never be inhaled. Use in a well ventilated room away from sparks and flames. Air dry before
washing or drying. Dry-cleaning fluid may cause a “ring” to be formed on some permanent press
fabrics. This will not wash out. To remove, clean the garment in a coin-operated dry-cleaning unit, or
by a professional dry-cleaner.

Maintenance . . .
Cold Weather Care
If the washer is delivered on a
cold day (below freezing), or is
stored in an unheated room or
area during the cold months, do
not attempt to operate it until the
washer has had a chance to
warm up.
Care Of Your Washer
IMPORTANT: Before using the
washer for the first time, wipe out
the inside of the washtub with a
sudsy cloth.
Use only a damp or sudsy cloth
for cleaning the control panel.
Some spray prewash products
may harm the finish on the control
panel.
Wipe the washer cabinet as
needed. If detergent, bleach or
other washing products are
spilled on the cabinet, wipe
immediately. Some products will
cause permanent damage if
spilled on the cabinet.
Do not use scouring pads or
abrasive cleansers.
Do not lay sharp or rough objects
on or against the washer. The
finish could be damaged.
The washtub will need no
particular care though it may need
rinsing or wiping after an unusual
load has been washed. This also
may be necessary if too little
detergent has been used.
Leave the loading door open to
allow the inside of the washer to
dry out after use. This helps
prevent musty odors from
developing.
Operating Tips . . .
Out-Of-Balance Switch
The out-of-balance switch is
located behind the right rear
hinge of the washer loading door.
A load of one or two items can
make the washtub unbalanced
during the spin periods. For the
best spinning results, the load
must be balanced throughout the
spin period.
The out-of-balance switch is
tripped if the load becomes
excessively unbalanced during
the spin. Spinning stops when this
happens.
If the out-of-balance switch is
tripped, you will need to
rearrange the load. To do this,
push the timer knob in, open the
loading door and evenly
distribute the items in the
washtub. Close the loading door,
pull the timer knob out, and the
spin will resume.
Motor Overload Protector . . .
This internal overload protector
will stop the motor automatically
in the event of an overload. The
overload protector will reset itself
in two or three minutes and the
motor will restart automatically. If
the overload protector stops the
motor again, remove the washer
from use and call the serviceman
to correct the problem.
