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

Color Logic (on some models)
Troubleshooting Tips
Load Size
Loosely load clothes no higher than the top row of holes in the washer tub. The water level should
just cover the clothes. Adjust the load size accordingly.
Custom Care Wash/Spin Speeds
The agitator moves clothes around for a cleaner wash; the basket spins later in the cycle to release
water from the load. On some models, the Wash/Spin Speed dial sets the speed of both the
agitator and the basket. On some models, the Wash/Spin speed settings are located on the
Cycle Selector knob.
Wash Speeds
With Normal Speed, the agitator will move at a high speed for the first few minutes, then it slows
down to a moderate speed. This gets your clothes clean while reducing wear on your clothing.
Use for cottons, denims and play clothes.
Consumer Support
With Gentle Speed, the agitator moves slower. Use for delicate and knit items.
With Casuals, the agitator will agitate and then pause to soak your clothes. It provides a gentler way
to wash your wrinkle-free and permanent press items and knits.
Spin Speeds
The Fast spin speed is for normal items. Use it to remove more water from your clothes to allow
them to dry faster in the dryer.
The Slow spin speed is for delicate items like sweaters and lingerie. When using Slow spin speed,
clothes will be less dry than when using Fast spin speed.

Safety Instructions
About the control settings.
Temperature
Select the water temperature for the wash and rinse cycles. Always follow fabric manufacturer’s care label or
instructions when laundering.
Wash Cycle
The wash cycle controls the length of the washing process. The knob can be turned in either direction.
Turning the Cycle Selector knob after starting a cycle will stop the washer and reset the cycle to the new
selection. Press START to begin the new cycle selection.
Operating Instructions
REMEMBER: When
choosing the cycle, the
Cycle Selector knob can
be pointed anywhere
within the shaded range
for the cycle setting.
The Cycle Indicator Lights show what stage the washer is in. The wash time is the length of the wash agitation.
The 6 MIN light will remain lit during drain and spin. When the Selector knob is set to a new cycle, the
Indicator Lights will flash momentarily, showing what stages the cycle will go through.
On models without an Auto Soak option, the SOAK light will not light up.
The chart below will help you match the wash cycle setting with your clothing.

Safety Instructions
2nd Rinse Option (on some models)
When you use extra detergent or bleach to clean heavily soiled clothes, you may want to
use the 2nd Rinse option. It provides a second deep cold rinse.
Extended Spin Option (on some models)
Use this option to extract more water from your clothes. Clothes will be drier when this
option is selected and will dry more quickly in your dryer.
(appearance and features may vary)
Auto Soak (on some models)
This option adds a short agitation and soaking period at the beginning of the selected
wash cycle.
AutoTemp
AutoTemp senses the incoming water temperature and adjusts the cold water temperature
to ensure that the incoming cold water is warm enough to dissolve the detergent.
Often, detergents are not completely dissolved in very cold water, especially in cooler climates.
Liquid Bleach Dispenser
The dispenser dilutes liquid chlorine bleach before it reaches into your wash load.
1 Check clothing care labels for special instructions.
2 Measure liquid bleach carefully, following instructions on the bottle.
Operating Instructions

■ Never pour undiluted liquid chlorine bleach directly onto clothes or into the wash basket.

Troubleshooting Tips
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).

Sorting Wash Loads
Loading the Washer
Proper Use of Detergent
Add detergent and start the washer before adding
clothes so that the detergent can work effectively.
Using too little or too much detergent is a common
cause of laundry problems.
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.
8
You can use less detergent if you have soft water,
a smaller load or a lightly soiled load.
■ 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.
GEAppliances.com
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.

agitator. It is self-cleaning and requires no
maintenance.
Operating Instructions
Long Vacations: Be sure water supply is shut off at
faucets. Drain all water from hoses if weather will
be below freezing.

What To Do
Pilling
Result of normal wear on
poly-cotton blends and
fuzzy fabrics
• While this is not caused by the washer, you can slow the
pilling process by washing garments inside out.
Snags, holes, tears, rips
or excessive wear
Pins, snaps, hooks, sharp
buttons, belt buckles,
zippers, and sharp objects
left in pockets
• Fasten snaps, hooks, buttons, and zippers.
Wrinkling

Overloading or
incorrect water level
• Load your washer so clothes have enough room
to move freely.
Incorrect wash and
dry cycles
• Match Cycle selection to the type of fabric you are
washing (especially for easy-care loads).
Repeated washing in
water that is too hot
• Wash in warm or cold water.
Possible Causes
What To Do
Washer is uneven
• To level the front of the washer, adjust the front leveling
legs by rotating the individual leg in the proper direction
for up or down. To level back of washer, lift back of
machine 4″ (10 cm) and set down.
Washer load is
unbalanced

redistribute the load evenly. Close the lid and press
START.
Shipping rod is still assembled
in unit

attached rod from the bottom right-hand side of washer.
Washer is sitting too close
to wall (causes knocking
during cycle)
• Pull washer away from the wall; about 4″ (10 cm)
is needed.
Possible Causes
What To Do
Occasionally the adhesive
used on the labels does
not release cleanly
• Use a hair dryer set at the lowest heat setting, directing
the air at the label for a short amount of time. This will
release the adhesive easily, without damaging the surface
of the washer.
