Tips before Washing
Check for colorfastness.
Before washing any new garment you should always check to see if the
color will bleed to avoid damaging other items in the same wash cycle.
Checking for colorfastness is easy. Simply wet one corner of the fabric
and let it set for a few minutes. Get a white cloth and press down on the
wet part of the garment/item. If any color comes off onto the white cloth,
you know the item is not colorfast and will run in the wash cycle. This
garment/item should be washed separately.
Certain clothes should not be washed in washer:
These include embossed, resins, furs, fur decorations, clothes that easily
wrinkle such as silk, clothes with decorations, handmade items, and
fabrics that discolor easily. Never wash clothes that are stained with
chemicals such as gasoline, petroleum, benzene, paint thinner and
alcohol. These items should be hand washed first. Waterproof items
should not be washed such as car covers, ski suits, outside tablecloths,
etc.
Please pay attention with regard to detergents
 Low sudsing detergent or washing powder specially formulated for
front loading machines should be used according to fiber types
(cotton, synthetic fiber, soft products and wool products), colors,
washing temperatures, degree of soil and types. Otherwise,
excessive bubbles may be generated and overflow from the unit.
 Bleach can be harmful and damage clothes, so it is suggested to
use as little as possible.
 Powder detergents can leave residues in the clothes and
generate a smell. If using powder detergent an extra rinse is
recommended.
 If there is too much detergent or water temperature is too low,
detergent does not easily dissolve completely. Make sure to follow
the recommended amount to avoid not rinsing properly from
clothes and unit.
 Washing will depend on the weight of clothes, degree of soil level,
local water hardness as well as the recommendations from the
detergent manufacturers. Please consult the water company if
you are not clear on your water hardness.
NOTE: Do not overload
the unit. Proper loading
is 1/2 to 2/3 fill with
similar items for most
effective performance.
EdgeStar Washer/Dryer Combo
Keep in Mind:
 Once a cycle is loaded it should not be left for a long period of
time in order to avoid a moldy smell or causing stains to set in.
Clothes should be washed in a timely manner for best care.
 Make sure clothes are washed according to the stated washing
temperature to avoid color change/distortion.
 Keep detergents and additives in safe dry places out of reach
from children.
 Only use detergents recommended for front loading, and do not
use regular soap as the residue can remain in clothing after wash.
 Please take items out of your clothes pockets. Please check the
pockets of the clothes to be washed, remove any loose items to
avoid possible damage or unnecessary service call.
16

NOTE: It is normal if you
clothes feel slightly
damp to the touch
even though they are
dry. This is entirely
normal in the selfcondensing drying
process. All you have to
do is just shake them
out a little bit to allow
any residual humidity to
dissipate (it takes only a
few seconds). Then you
can fold or hang them
as normally.

Secure fasteners, zips should be zipped close and buttons or hooks
should be fastened. Any loose ribbons or ties should be tied
together.
Clothes should always be washed/separated according to the
following characteristics- fabric Type, color, size, and sensitivity.
Always wash according to label instructions.
Clothes with buttons, embroideries, or fraying should be turned
inside out before being washed.
Remove all pins/hooks from article of clothing before being
washed.
It is recommended to put bras with wire hooks in sealed pillowcase
to prevent steel wire from bra popping out of bra and into drum
causing possible damage.
Delicate's such as lace, nylons, handkerchiefs, ties, etc. should be
washed in a mesh bag to avoid damage.
In order to get the most effective wash, clean away dusts, stains
and pet hair from the clothes prior to loading.
To protect baby’s skin, baby articles should be washed separately
from adult clothes. Babywear cycle the rinsing is longer in order to
thoroughly rinse out detergent as their skin is much more sensitive.
For parts of clothes that are more easily stained it is recommended
to pretreat before wash in order to achieve most ideal washing
effect.
Washing/Drying Capacity:
Do not overload the unit; otherwise it may diminish the washing effects. Please
confirm the maximum affordable washing quantity according to the following
table.
DO NOT WASH ANY SINGLE LARGE ITEM AS IT WILL DAMAGE UNIT.

Care and Maintenance
Periodic cleaning and proper maintenance will ensure efficiency, top
performance, and long life and is recommended.
Disconnect plug from outlet and close water tap before performing any
cleaning/maintenance to your combo washer/dryer.
Cleaning the exterior of the unit
Never use solvent based, abrasive cleaners, harsh chemicals or steel wool to
clean your unit as they can damage the finish. The cabinet and chrome door
may be cleaned with a mild detergent and lukewarm water solution such as 2
tablespoons of baking soda to 1 quart of water. Use a soft sponge and rinse with
clean water. Wipe with a soft clean towel to prevent water spotting.
During daily use it is recommended to wipe up any spills with dry soft cloth.
Cleaning the interior of the unit
Never use solvent based, abrasive cleaners, harsh chemicals or steel wool to
clean the internal drum. During daily use, use a soft cloth to wipe around the
door, opening, and rubber seal to remove any excess moisture and to maintain a
water tight seal.
To clean the interior of the unit all clothes must be removed from the drum. Select
the cycle “Self Clean”, you can either use liquid chlorine or power/tablet tub
cleaners manufactured for this purpose can be used.
For liquid chlorine add directly to the fabric softener section. For powder tub
cleaner add directly to the main detergent section. Lastly for tablet add directly
to the wash drum. Press start to initiate “Self Clean” cycle.
After every wash clothes should always be removed to avoid odor and/or mildew
from forming.
Cleaning detergent dispenser
Never use solvent based, abrasive cleaners, harsh chemicals or steel wool.
1. Remove the detergent dispenser from the unit by pressing on the
release tab and pull out drawer.
2. Once dispenser drawer is removed remove cap from the fabric
softener compartment (pictured below).
3. Place drawer under warm tap water and dry with soft cloth.
4. Place cap back onto fabric softener and insert dispenser drawer
