WASHER SAFETY
Your safety and the safety of others is very important.
We have provided many important safety messages in this manual and on your appliance. Always read and
obey all safety messages.
This is the safety alert symbol.
This symbol alerts you to hazards that can kill or hurt you and others.
All safety messages will be preceded by the safety alert symbol and the word “DANGER” or
“WARNING.” These words mean:
wDANGER
You will be killed or seriously injured if you don’t
follow instructions.
wWARNING
You can be killed or seriously injured if you don’t
follow instructions.
All safety messages will identify the hazard, tell you how to reduce the chance of injury, and tell you what
can happen if the instructions are not followed.
IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS

Regular cycle
The Regular cycle features high-speed agitation.
High spin speeds shorten drying time. Use 6 (Light)
or 12 (Normal) minutes of wash time for cleaning
sturdy cotton and linen fabrics that are moderately
or heavily soiled.
Super Wash – The Super Wash cycle automatically prewashes the laundry and advances into the
Normal cycle. (The washer does not need to be
reset after the Super Wash cycle.) Use this cycle
when washing heavily soiled loads that need maximum soil removal. Follow detergent manufacturer’s
directions for heavily soiled clothing.
Permanent Press
Use the Permanent Press cycle for cleaning
permanent press and some synthetic fabrics that
are lightly or moderately soiled. The Permanent
Press cycle starts with high agitation and then
steps to low. To reduce wrinkling, this cycle
features a cool-down rinse.
Delicate cycle
The Delicate cycle features a reduced agitation
speed for gentle soil removal. Use this 6-minute
cycle for cleaning delicate items and washable knits
that are lightly or moderately soiled.
Woollens cycle
The Woollens cycle features a reduced agitation
speed for gentle soil removal. Select cold wash
and cold rinse water when using this cycle. Please
note that the automatic temperature control feature
on this machine will blend cold and warm water to
give a wash water temperature of approximately
24°C (75°F). Use this 6-minute cycle for washable
woollens and knits that are lightly soiled.
8
Hand Washables cycle
The Hand Washables cycle features a brief period
of low-speed agitation and soak time (5 seconds
agitation, 30 seconds soak) which is repeated for
six minutes. Low spin speed reduces wrinkling.
Use this cycle for cleaning lightly soiled hand
washables.
Garments are labeled “Hand Wash” because:
• The fibre or construction may be sensitive to
agitation.
• The fabric contains sensitive dyes that may
bleed. Properly sort and then use your Hand
Washables cycle for gentle washing. Follow care
label directions for drying. Items that may shrink
should be dried flat. Block these items by gently
stretching to original measurements. Woollens
tend to shrink more the first time they are
washed.
• If items appear to be floating due to trapped air,
stop the washer by pushing in the Cycle Control
knob. Push items down into the water. Restart
the washer.
Soak cycle
The Soak cycle features a brief period of agitation
and soak time to help remove heavy soils and
stains that need pretreatment. The soak period will
continue for 12 minutes.
• Use warm water when soaking laundry. Hot water
can set stains.
• Use the amount of detergent or presoak additive
recommended by the manufacturer.
• After the Soak cycle ends, the Pre-Wash cycle
automatically begins.
Pre-Wash cycle
The Pre-Wash cycle features a brief period of high
speed agitation to help remove heavy soils and
stains that need pretreatment.
• Use warm water for prewashing stained laundry.
Hot water can set stains.
• After the Pre-Wash cycle ends, Super Wash
automatically begins.
OPERATING YOUR WASHER
RINSE/DRAIN AND SPIN
Rinse and Spin feature
Drain and Spin feature
When using extra detergent for heavily soiled
clothes, or washing special-care items, you may find
an extra rinse and spin is needed.
• For an additional rinse and spin, push in the
Cycle Control knob and turn it to any of the Rinse
settings. The washer fills to the selected load
size, agitates, drains, and spins.
A drain and spin may help shorten drying times for
some heavy fabrics or special-care items by
removing excess water.
• For a drain and spin, push in the Cycle Control
knob and turn it to any of the Spin settings. Then
pull out the Cycle Control knob. The washer drains,
then spins.
MAGIC CLEAN* LINT FILTER
Your washer has a MAGIC CLEAN lint filter at the
bottom of the basket. Wash and rinse water flow
over the filter during agitation, separating the lint
from the water. The lint spins out of the system
during the spin part of the cycle.
Basket

If your washer drains into a tub, remove any lint
collected in the tub or strainer.

UNDERSTANDING NORMAL WASHER SOUNDS
Your new washer may make sounds your old one
didn’t. Because the sounds may be unfamiliar, you
may be concerned about them. Don’t be; most of
them are normal.
The following describes some of the sounds you
may hear and what causes them.
During washing
When you select a small load size setting, your
washer has a lower water level. This may cause a
clicking sound from the upper part of the agitator.
During drain
If water is drained quickly from your washer
(depending on your installation), you may hear air
being pulled through the pump during the end of
draining.
After drain and before spin
When the cycle changes from draining to spinning,
you may hear gears engaging.
9
OPERATING YOUR WASHER
UNDERSTANDING WHAT HAPPENS IN EACH CYCLE
When the Cycle Control knob is set to a number and
pulled out, the washer fills (to the selected load size)
before agitation and timing start. The washer begins
agitating immediately after filling; agitation occurs
with the washer lid up or down.
During agitation, the agitator creates a continuous
rollover action that
provides a thorough
cleaning of the wash
load.
After agitation starts, the Cycle Control knob turns
clockwise until it points to an Off area and the
cycle ends.
NOTES:
• The washer pauses briefly throughout each cycle.
These pauses are normal for washer operation.
• A Gentle Wash system helps protect your fabrics
by reducing wash agitation speed during the last
few minutes of wash agitation in the Regular and
Permanent Press cycles.

CARING FOR YOUR WASHER
CLEANING YOUR WASHER
Cleaning the exterior
Cleaning the interior
Use a soft, damp cloth or sponge to wipe up any
spills such as detergent or bleach.
Occasionally wipe the outside of
your washer to keep it looking new.
Clean your washer interior by mixing 250 mL (1 cup)
of liquid bleach and 500 mL (2 cups) of detergent.
Pour this into your washer and run it through a
complete cycle using hot water. Repeat this process
if necessary.
NOTE: Remove any hard water deposits using only
cleaners labeled as washer safe.
Cleaning the liquid fabric softener dispenser
Flush dispenser periodically with warm water, as
shown. Remove the dispenser by grasping the top
of the dispenser with both hands and squeezing
and pushing upwards with thumbs. Clean the
dispenser by rinsing it under a water faucet.
Replace it after cleaning.
NOTE: Do not wash clothes with this dispenser
removed. Do not add detergent or bleach to this
dispenser; it is for liquid fabric softener use only.
WINTER STORAGE, MOVING, VACATION CARE
Install and store your washer where it will not
freeze. Because some water may stay in the
hoses, freezing can damage your washer. If storing
or moving your washer during freezing weather,
winterize it.
To winterize washer:
1. Shut off both water taps.
2. Disconnect and drain water inlet hoses.
3. Put 1 L (1 quart) of R.V.-type antifreeze in
the basket.
4. Run washer on a drain and spin setting (see
the “Rinse/drain and spin” section) for about
30 seconds to mix the antifreeze and water.
5. Unplug the power supply cord.
To use washer again:
1. Flush water pipes and hoses.
2. Reconnect water inlet hoses.
3. Turn on both water taps.
4. Reconnect power supply cord.
5. Run the washer through a complete cycle with
250 mL (1 cup) of detergent to clean out antifreeze.
Non-use or vacation care:
Operate your washer only when you are at home. If
you will be on vacation or not using your washer for
an extended period of time, you should:
• Unplug the power supply cord or turn off electrical
power to the washer.
• Turn off the water supply to the washer. This helps
avoid accidental flooding (due to a water pressure
surge) while you are away.
