Startingyourwasher
Be sure to measure and add detergent, then place a sorted load in the washer before
starting it
1. Select a load size
Position the Load Size Selector at the
setting that describes the size of load
you want to wash.

on
or between EX SMALL (a few small
items) and EX LARGE (a full load).
l To change the water level after the
washer has started to fill, turn the
selector to RESET, then to the desired
water level.
NOTE: For best washing results, items
should move freely in the washer. Do
not overload the washer or choose a
water level that is too low for your
wash load.
For best results with permanent
press clothes, use the EX LARGE water
level.
Reduce wash time when using EX
SMALL or SMALL water level settings.
Loads with only a few small items need
less wash time for best results.
l
2. Select water temperature
Match the water temperature to the
type of fabric and soils being washed.
l The top temperature
is the wash
selection and Ihe bottom temperature
is the rinse selection.
NOTE: Use warm wash water with
the PERMANENT PRESS or KNITS/
GENTLE Cycles.
For heavily soiled permanenl press
or knit clothes, pre-wash or pre-soak
before washing in warm water.
ALWAYS use cold rinse water for
permanent press fabrics.
l
3. Select cycle and wash time

l Push in the Cycle Control Knob and
turn it to the right.
l Stop on the number in the wash cycle
you want. The numbers are minutes of
wash time.
l Start the washer by pulling out the
Cycle Control Knob. The washer will
fill to the selected water level with the
selected wash water temperature.
After filling, the washer will agitate for
the selected number of minutes.
l To stop the washer at any time, push
in the Cycle Control Knob. To restart
the washer, pull out the Cycle
Control Knob.
Whathappensin eachcycle
Each cycle has different agitation and
spin speeds designed for different krnds
of fabrics.
Numbers on the dial in each cycle are
the minutes of wash agitation time.
When the Cycle Control Knob is set
to a number and pulled out, Ihe washer
fills before agitation and timing starts.
After agitation starts, the knob turns
clockwise until it points to OFF and the
cycle ends.
Gentle Wash System
For better fabric care in the REGULAR
and PERMANENT PRESS Cycles, the
agitation speed is reduced during the
last few minutes of wash agitation time.
NOTE: You may hear the sound of
water spraying during the spin parts of
some cycles. In some cycles, water is
sprayed on the spinning load to help
with the rinsing.
The washer will pause bnefly
throughout each cycle. These pauses
are normal. They allow for the reversing
of the motor, normal washer operation
and the cool-down portion of the
PERMANENT PRESS Cycle.
