Caring for your washer
WHEN NOT WASHING, keep both
water faucets turned off. This takes
the pressure off the water inlet valve
and hoses.
AFTER WASHING, use a soft dry cloth
to wipe the outside and inside dry.
Leave the lid up until the basket is dry.
Wipe up spills right away. Spills can
dull or damage
the finish.
REMOVE SHARP OBJECTS such as pins,
buckles,
etc., from clothes
before
washing. Close metal zippers.
SHARP OR HEAVY OBJECTS should
never be put on or in the washer.
Check pockets for bolts, nuts,
tools, etc.
SOME PRETREATMENT PRODUCTS
can damage
washer and dryer dials,
consoles and finishes. Do not use
these products on or near your
washer or dryer.
Winterizing
Because some water stays in the washer, freezrng can cause a lot of damage.
If your washer is
stored or moved during the cold weather..
1. Shut off both water
faucets. Disconnect and drain
water inlet hoses.
To use the washer
2. Put a quart of
automobile-type
antifreeze
in the
basket
again..
.
1. Flush water pipes and hoses.
2. Connect hoses to the washer.
3. Turn on the water faucets
10
3. Set the washer for a
DRAIN and SPIN
(see page 8). Let it
run for about 30
seconds to mix the
antifreeze
and
water.
4. Run the washer
through a complete cycle with
one cup of detergent to clean out
the antifreeze.
If you need service or assistance, we suggest
you follow these four steps:
I. Before calling
for assistance..
Performance
problems
often result from little things you can find
and fix yourself without tools of any
kind.
IF YOUR WASHER DOES NOT FILL:
Is the power supply cord
plugged
in?
l Are both
water faucets open?
l Are fuses blown
or circuit-breaker
tripped?
l Are the water
supply hoses
kinked?
l Is the Cycle
Control Knob set and
pulled out?
l
IF YOUR WASHER DOES NOT SPIN:
Is the lid closed?
l Is the power
supply cord
plugged
in?
l Is a fuse blown
or circuit-breaker
tripped?
IF YOUR WASHER STOPS DURING
THE PERMANENT PRESS CYCLE:
l Remember,
the washer will stop
for about 1% minutes after the
partial drain during the cooldown period in this cycle.
IF WASHER FILLS AND DRAINS
WITHOUT RUNNING:
l Make
sure that the Cycle Control
Knob is pointing to a number in
the cycle.
MAKE SURE THE DRAIN HOSE IS
HIGHER THAN THE WATER LEVEL IN
THE WASHER. IF IT ISN’T...
