WHEN NOT WASHING, keep both
water faucets turned off. This takes
the pressure off the water inlet valve
and hoses.
APTERWASHING, use a sofl dry cloth
to wipe the outside and inside dry.
Leave the lid up until the basket is dry.
Wipe 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.
Check pockets for bolts, nuts,
tools, etc.
SOME PRETREATMENTPRODUCTS
