••Do not use liquid detergent if you are using
Time delay, or if you have selected Pre Wash,
as the liquid may harden.
••If too many suds occur, reduce the detergent
amount.
••Detergent usage may need to be adjusted for
water temperature, water hardness, size and
soil level of the load. For best results, avoid
oversudsing.
••Refer to the label of the clothes, before
choosing the detergent and water
temperature.
••When using the washing machine, use
designated detergent for each type of clothing
only:
−−General powdered detergents for all types of
fabric
−−Powdered detergents for delicate fabric
−−Liquid detergents for all types of fabric or
designated detergents only for wool
