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 happen if the instructions are not followed.
IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
WARNING: To reduce the risk of fire, electric shock, or injury to persons when using the washer, follow basic
precautions, including the following:
■
Read all instructions before using the washer.
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 vapors
that could ignite or explode.
■ 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. Close
supervision of children is necessary when the washer is
used near children.
■
Before the washer is removed from service or discarded,
remove the door or lid.
■
Do not reach into the washer if the drum, tub or agitator
is moving.
■
Do not install or store the washer where it will be
exposed to the weather.
■
Do not tamper with controls.
■
Do not repair or replace any part of the washer or
attempt any servicing unless specifically recommended
in this manual or in published user-repair instructions
that you understand and have the skills to carry out.
■
See “Electrical Requirements” for grounding instructions.
■
■
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.

WASHER USE
Understanding Washer Cycles
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.
After agitation starts, the Cycle Control knob turns clockwise until
it points to an OFF area and the cycle ends.
NOTE: The washer pauses briefly throughout each cycle. These
pauses are normal for washer operation.
