For the best washing results, and to reduce the possibility
of damage to clothing, care should be taken to sort the
clothing into loads that are made up of similar items.
Mixing different fabric types and/or soil levels can result
in poor wash performance, color transfer or discoloration,
fabric damage or linting. Fabrics should be sorted into
groups as described below.

Proper care of your washer can extend its life. The outside
of the machine can be cleaned with warm water and a
mild, nonabrasive household detergent.
Immediately wipe off any spills with a soft, damp cloth.
IMPORTANT: Do not use solvents, cleaning alcohols, or
similar products. Never use steel wool or abrasive cleaners
because they can damage the surface.
&DUHDQG&OHDQLQJRIWKH,QWHULRU
Use a towel or soft cloth to wipe around the washer lid
opening and lid glass.
Always remove items from the washer as soon as the cycle
is complete. Leaving damp items in the washer can cause
wrinkling, color transfer, and odor.

Check hoses for leaks, cracks and splits.
Check and tighten hose connections.
The washer pumps out water very rapidly. Check for
water backing up out of the drain pipe during drain.
If water is seen coming out of the drain, check for
proper drain hose installation and check for restrictions in the drain. Contact a plumber to repair drain
pipe.
Tie drain hose to inlet hose or standpipe to prevent it
from coming out during drain. For smaller drain pipes,
insert the drain hose into the pipe as far as the drain

The display shows:
The display shows:
Possible Cause
Drain hose is kinked, pinched, or
clogged.
Drain discharge is more than 96 inches
above bottom of washer.
The washer has detected an out of
balance load.
If the ub rebalance (see above) is not
successful, this error will be displayed.
Solutions
Make sure the drain hose is free of
clogs, kinks, etc., and is not pinched behind
or under the washer.
Adjust or repair drain. Maximum drain
height is 96 inches (8 ft.)
If the washer detects a load that is too
far out of balance to spin, it will display this code while it is attempting to
rebalance the load. The washer will
add water and try to redistribute the
load automatically. This display is for
your information only, and no action is
required.
The automatic attempt to rebalance the load
was not successful. The cycle has been paused
to allow the load to be manually adjusted.
The load is too small.
Small loads may need additional items to be
added to allow the washer to balance the
loads.
Heavy articles are mixed with lighter
items.
The load may have heavy items loaded with
lighter items. Always try to wash articles of
somewhat similar weight to allow the washer
to evenly distribute the weight of the load for
spinning.
The load is out of balance.
The display shows:
Control error.
The display shows:
Water level is too high due to a faulty
water valve.
Manually redistribute the load if articles have
become tangled preventing the automatic
distribution from working properly.
Unplug the washer and wait 60 seconds.
Reconnect power and try again. If the error
reappears, call for service.
Close the water faucets, unplug the washer, and call for service.
The display shows:
The water level sensor is not working
correctly.
Close the water faucets, unplug the washer, and call for service.
The display shows:
A motor error has occurred.
