Exterior Proper care of your washing machine can extend its service life. The outside of the machine can be cleaned with warm water and a neutral non-abrasive household detergent. Immediately wipe off any spillage. Wipe with damp cloth. Avoid striking the surface with sharp objects. Never hose down the machine! Interior Dry around the washing machine door opening, flexible gasket and door glass. Run washing machine through a complete cycle using hot water. Repeat process if necessary.

This will cause abnormal noise and cause the machine to malfunction and leak. • Items that have been spotted or soaked with vegetable or cooking oil constitute a fire hazard and should not be placed in a tumble dryer. Oil-affected items can ignite spontaneously, especially when exposed to heat sources Such as in a tumble dryer. The items become warm, causing an oxidation reaction in the oil. Oxidation creates heat. If the heat cannot escape, the items can become hot enough to catch fire. Piling, stacking or storing oil-affected items can prevent heat from escaping and so create a fire hazard. If it is unavoidable that fabrics that contain vegetable or cooking oil or have been contaminated by hair care products be placed in a tumble dryer they should first be washed in hot water with extra detergent-this will reduce, but not eliminate, the hazard. The ‘cool down’ cycle of tumble dryers should be used to reduce the temperature of the items. They should not be removed from the tumble dryer or piled or stacked while hot. • Items that have been previously cleaned in, washed in, soaked in or spotted with petrol/gasoline, dry-cleaning solvents or other flammable or explosive substances should not be placed in a tumble dryer. Highly flammable substances commonly used in domestic environments include acetone, denatured alcohol, petrol/gasoline, kerosene, spot removers (some brands), turpentine, waxes and wax removers. • Items containing foam rubber (also known as latex foam) or similarly testured rubber like materials should not be dried in a tumble dryer on a heat setting. Foam rubber materials can, when heated, produce fire by spontaneous combustion. • Fabric softeners or similar products should not be used during a drying cycle, to eliminate the effects of static electricity unless this practice is specifically recommended by the manufacturer of the fabric softener or product. • Undergarments that contain metal reinforcements should not be placed in a tumble dryer. Damage to the tumble dryer can result if metal reinforcements come loose during drying. When available a drying rack could be used for such items. • Plastic articles such as shower caps or babies waterproof napkin covers should not be placed in a tumble dryer. • Rubber-backed articles, clothes fitted with foam rubber pads, pillows, rubber boots and rubber-coated tennis shoes should not be placed in a tumble dryer.
