Safety Instructions
IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION.
READ ALL INSTRUCTIONS BEFORE USING.
WARNING!
For your safety, the information in this manual must be followed to minimize the risk
of fire or explosion, electric shock, or to prevent property damage, personal injury,
or loss of life.
WATER HEATER SAFETY
Under certain conditions hydrogen gas may be produced in a water heater that has not been used for two weeks
or more. Hydrogen gas can be explosive under these circumstances.
If the hot water has not been used for two weeks or more, prevent the possibility of damage or injury by turning
on all hot water faucets and allowing them to run for several minutes. Do this before using any electrical
appliance which is connected to the hot water system. This simple procedure will allow any built-up hydrogen
gas to escape. Since the gas is flammable, do not smoke or use an open flame or appliance during this process.
PROPER INSTALLATION
Operating Instructions

is used. If you did not receive an Installation Instructions sheet, you can receive one by visiting GEAppliances.com,

PRESOAK
Appearance may vary.
To presoak a load and go straight into a wash cycle:
Select your wash cycle, press the PRESOAK pad, then press the START pad.
■ Starts with three minutes of agitation, then 12 minutes of soaking, followed by the
selected wash cycle.
■ Uses the speed and water temperature of your selected wash cycle.
To presoak a load without going straight into a wash cycle:
Press the PRESOAK pad. The washer will fill. You may change the automatic settings
if desired.

START
■ After you have selected a new cycle, press once to start the cycle.
■ Press twice to select the last cycle used and start the washer.
■ If the washer is running, press once to interrupt the cycle; press again to continue
the cycle.
STOP
This pad should not be used to interrupt or pause a cycle.
Operating Instructions
Pressing this pad will cancel the current settings and the settings will be lost.
Estimated Time Remaining

EST. TIME REMAINING
■ If the estimated time remaining is more than 60 minutes, “1H” will flash in the
display, followed by the additional remaining minutes. When the time remaining is
less than 60 minutes, the timer will count down.
■ Cycle time is affected by how long it takes the washer to fill. This depends on the
water pressure in your home. The “smart” timer “learns” the amount of time it
takes to fill your washer and adjusts the total time accordingly.
NOTE: If PRESOAK is selected and a follow up wash cycle is not chosen, two dashes
will come up in the display.

BLEACH SIGNAL (on some models)
Consumer Support
The Bleach Signal is a reminder signal that can be turned on to remind you to add bleach at
the proper time in the wash cycle. Adding detergent and bleach at the same time reduces the
effectiveness of both the enzymes in the detergent and the chlorine in the bleach. By adding
bleach later in the wash cycle, you allow the detergent’s enzymes to remove dirt and stains first,
and then provide a more effective dose of liquid bleach to whiten and sanitize your clothes.

PerfecTemp Plus
PerfecTemp Plus senses the incoming water temperature and adjusts the temperature
of the fill water.
The lid must be closed for PerfecTemp Plus to work.
If your water is too cold, detergent will not dissolve effectively and clothes may not get

PerfecTemp Plus adjusts these water temperature extremes for better washing
performance.
Some models have an indicator light that tells you when PerfecTemp Plus is active.

Loading and using the washer.

Safety Instructions
Sorting Wash Loads
Sort by color (whites, lights, colors), soil level,
fabric type (sturdy cottons, easy care, delicates),
and whether the fabric produces lint (terry cloth,
chenille) or collects lint (velveteen, corduroy).
Proper Use of Detergent
You can use less detergent if you have soft water,
a smaller load or a lightly soiled load.
Operating Instructions
Using too much detergent is a common cause
of laundry problems. Today’s detergents are
formulated to be effective without highly visible
sudsing. Be sure to carefully read and follow
manufacturer’s recommendations for how
much detergent to use in your wash.
Loading the Washer
■ Do not wrap long items like sheets or pants
around the agitator.
■ Do not wash fabrics containing flammable
materials (waxes, cleaning fluids, etc.).
■ Agitation will not start with the lid up.
Troubleshooting Tips
Load dry items loosely, no higher than the
top row of holes in the washer basket.
When loading wet items make sure you set
the load/water level high enough to allow
the items to move freely. Water level should
just cover the clothes. To add items after
washer has started, lift the lid and submerge
additional items next to the agitator.

Safety Instructions
Loading and using the washer. Always follow fabric manufacturer’s care label when laundering.
Care and Cleaning of the Washer
Wash Basket: Leave the lid open after washing to
allow moisture to evaporate. If you want to clean
the basket, use a clean soft cloth dampened with
liquid detergent, then rinse. (Do not use harsh
or gritty cleaners.)
Moving and Storage: Ask the service technician to
remove water from drain pump and hoses. See the
Installation Instructions packed with product for
information on how to reinstall the shipping rod to
keep the tub stationary when moving the washer.
For more information, visit GEAppliances.com, or
call 800.GE.CARES (800.432.2737). Do not store
the washer where it will be exposed to the weather.
Fill Hoses: Hoses connecting washer to faucet
should be replaced every 5 years.
Lint Filter: The lint filter is located under the agitator.
It is self-cleaning and requires no maintenance.
Long Vacations: Be sure water supply is shut off at
faucets. Drain all water from hoses if weather will
be below freezing.
Operating Instructions
Exterior: Immediately wipe off any spills. Wipe with
damp cloth. Try not to hit surface with sharp objects.
