Liquid bleach dispenser
Always measure bleach.
Do not
guess. Never use more than 1 cup
(250 ml) for a full load. Use less with
lower water level settings. Follow
directions on bottle for safe use. Use
a cup with a pouring spout to avoid
spilling.
1. Load the washer first.
2. Pour measured
bleach carefully
into dispenser. DO NOT let bleach
splash, drip or run down into the
washer basket. Undiluted
bleach
will damage
any fabric it touches.
3. Start the washer. Bleach will be
diluted automatically
during the
wash part of the cycle.
For more information
on bleaching,
see your “laundry
Guide.”
Liquid fabric softener dispenser
1. Add detergent and load to the
basket.
2. Add liquid fabric softener to the
dispenser using the amount recommended on the bottle.
3. Avoid dripping
or spilling any fabric
softener on the load.
4. Dilute fabric softener with hot water.
Add enough hot water to till the dispenser up to the opening.
5. Start the washer. Diluted fabric
softener will be added to the load
during the deep rinse portion of
the cycle. NOTE: Do not stop the
washer during this time. If you do,
the softener will mix with the remaining soapy wash water. This will
cause stains. Do not put detergent
in the liquid fabric softener
dispenser.
6. If dispenser needs cleaning,
flush
with hot water. NOTE: Do not wash
clothes with dispenser
removed.

Caring for your was‘her
OF
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

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.

SOME PRETREATMENT PRODUCTS can
damage
washer and dryer dials, consoles and finishes. Do not use these
products on or near your washer or

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.
2. Put a quart of
automotive-type
antifreeze in the
basket.
3. Set the washer for a
DRAIN and SPIN
(see page 12). Let it
run for about 30
seconds to mix the
antifreeze and
water.
ON
To use the washer again...
1. Flush water pipes and hoses.
2. Connect hoses to the washer
3. Turn on the water faucets.
