WASHER SAFETY
Your safety and the safety of others are very important.
We have provided many important safety messages in this manual and on your appliance. Always read and obey all safety
messages.
This is the safety alert symbol.
This symbol alerts you to potential hazards that can kill or hurt you and others.
All safety messages will follow the safety alert symbol and either the word “DANGER” or “WARNING.”
These words mean:
You can be killed or seriously injured if you don't immediately
follow instructions.
You can be killed or seriously injured if you don't follow
instructions.
All safety messages will tell you what the potential hazard is, tell you how to reduce the chance of injury, and tell you what can

WASHER USE
First Wash Cycle Without Laundry
Starting Your Washer
Before washing clothes for the first time, if not completed during
the complete installation step, choose the Normal cycle and run it
without clothes. Use only HE High Efficiency detergent. Use 1/2
the manufacturer’s recommended amount for a medium-size
load. This initial cycle serves to ensure the interior is clean before
washing clothes.
For All Wash Cycles
1.
To load washer
Open the washer door by pulling on the handle. Sort laundry
according to color and type of fabric. Place a load of sorted
clothes in the washer. Do not overload washer. Overloading
can cause poor cleaning.
■ Always empty pockets. Small items can be caught within
the washer resulting in noise or plugging the pump.
■ The washer can be fully loaded, but not tightly packed.
Washer door should close easily.
■ Mix large and small items. Avoid washing a single item.
Load evenly.
WARNING: To reduce the risk of fire, electric shock, or injury to
persons, read the IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS before
operating this appliance.
The following is a guide to using your washer. Please refer to
specific sections of this manual for more detailed information.
Do not store laundry products on the top surface of this washer.
Vibration is normal during operation.
■ Wash small items such as infant socks in mesh garment
bags. It is recommended that more than one garment bag
be used and that each garment bag be filled with equal
amounts of material.
■ When unloading garments, occasionally check under the
rubber rim at the front of the tub for small items.
2.
Close the washer door by pushing it firmly until the lock clicks.
After a lock check at the beginning of the cycle, the washer
door will remain locked during the wash cycle.
NOTE: After any wash cycle is completed, the door must be
opened and then closed before a new cycle can begin. The
door can be opened only if START/PAUSE is selected while
the Add a Garment light is illuminated or if the cycle has been
canceled. See “To cancel a cycle” in the “Changing Cycles
and Options” section.
3.
Open the dispenser drawer and add laundry products to the
detergent, bleach, or fabric softener compartments. Close
drawer slowly to avoid spills. See “Using the Dispenser.”
Turn on the washer by pressing POWER or Select Cycle
button. Select one of the cycles by pushing the cycle selector.
The indicator light for the selected cycle will illuminate. When
selecting a Wash Cycle, the TEMP indicator light for the preset
temperature will illuminate. This setting provide the
recommended fabric care for the selected cycle. See
“Cycles.”
Select the desired Options. Not all Options are available with
all cycles. See “Options.”
If desired, select the Cycle Signal. The signal is helpful when
you are washing items that should be removed from the
washer as soon as it stops. Press and hold CYCLE SIGNAL to
select signal on or signal off.
Using the Proper Detergent
Use only High Efficiency detergents. The package for this type of
detergent will be marked “HE” or “High Efficiency.” This wash
system, along with less water, will create too much sudsing with a
regular non-HE detergent. Using regular detergent will likely result in
washer errors, longer cycle times, and reduced rinsing performance.
It may also result in component failures and noticeable mold or
mildew. HE detergents are made to produce the right amount of
suds for the best performance. Follow the manufacturer’s
instructions to determine the amount of detergent to use.

Use only HE High Efficiency detergent.

START/PAUSE within 5 minutes of selecting a cycle.
■ When the wash cycle is complete, the DONE status light
illuminates, the door unlocks, and the wash load can be
removed from the washer. To power down the washer
after the wash cycle is complete and the DONE status
light goes off, open the door or press POWER.
D
Using the Dispenser
Your new washer has a dispenser drawer with three separate
compartments for your laundry products—one is for detergent,
one is for liquid chlorine bleach, and one is for liquid fabric
softener. Laundry products are diluted and dispensed
automatically at the proper time during the wash cycle,
making it unnecessary for you to return to the washer
during the cycle to add them.
It is normal for small amounts of water to remain in the dispensers
when the wash cycle is complete.
Do not put laundry products directly into the wash tub. Always
use the proper dispensers when adding laundry products.
Choosing the Right Detergent
Use only High Efficiency detergents. The package for this type of
detergent will be marked “HE” or “High Efficiency.” This wash
system, along with less water, will create too much sudsing with a
regular non-HE detergent. Using regular detergent will likely result in
washer errors, longer cycle times, and reduced rinsing performance.
It may also result in component failures and noticeable mold or
mildew. HE detergents are made to produce the right amount of
suds for the best performance. Follow the manufacturer's
instructions to determine the amount of detergent to use.

cycle. This compartment cannot dilute powdered bleach.
■ Use only liquid chlorine bleach in this dispenser. Do not use
this dispenser to add powdered chlorine or any form of colorsafe bleach or oxi products to your load.
■ Always measure liquid chlorine bleach. Use a measuring cup
with a pour spout; do not guess. Follow the manufacturer’s
directions for proper use.
■ Do not fill beyond the “MAX” level.
NOTE: Overfilling could cause garment damage.
Fabric softener compartment
(Letter D in Dispenser Illustration)

Temperature Guide
Clean Washer with AFFRESH™ cycle
Use the Clean Washer with AFFRESH™ cycle once a month to
keep the inside of your washer fresh and clean. This cycle uses a
higher water level in combination with AFFRESH® washer cleaner
tablet or chlorine bleach to thoroughly clean the inside of your
washing machine. See “Cleaning Your Washer.”
IMPORTANT: Do not place garments or other items in the washer
during the Clean Washer with AFFRESH™ cycle. Use this cycle
with an empty wash drum.

Normal Sounds
As with any new product, you will hear sounds that you are not
accustomed to. You may hear various sounds when the door is
locked or unlocked, and during the washing, rinsing, or spinning
process. Between changes in wash actions, there will be
momentary pauses. You will hear water spraying and splashing
during the wash and rinse cycles. These new sounds and pauses
are part of normal washer operation. See “Troubleshooting.”
In wash water temperatures colder than 60°F (15.6°C), detergents
do not dissolve well. Soils may be difficult to remove.
Controlled Temperature
Warm and cold wash temperatures are sensed and maintained by
regulating the amount of hot and cold water from your faucet. This
provided excellent cleaning while saving energy.
ATC (Auto Temp Control) electronically senses and maintains a
uniform water temperature, by regulating incoming hot and cold
water.
■ Cold rinse is not controlled by the ATC and will be the same
temperature as the water coming from your cold water faucet.
Cycle Signal
This signal is helpful when you are removing items from the
washer as soon as it stops. Press and hold CYCLE SIGNAL
to select signal on or off.
