The SUDS-MISER” System
Your washer
has the SUDS-MISER”
System. It has two drain hoses
One hose moves a portion
of used wash water Into a storage
tub
and moves it back Into the washer
for use during
the next wash
The other hose carries
water to another
tub with an open drain. or
to a standpipe
drain
If you do not want to re-use wash water for a load, leave the
stopper
