3.Check that you have all of your tools.

4.Dispose of/recycle all packaging materials.

5.Check that the water faucets are on.

6.Check for leaks around faucets and inlet hoses.

WARNING

Electrical Shock Hazard

Plug into a grounded 3 prong outlet.

Do not remove ground prong.

Do not use an adapter.

Do not use an extension cord.

Failure to follow these instructions can result in death, fire, or electrical shock.

7.Plug into a grounded 3 prong outlet.

8.Read “Washer Use.”

9.To test and clean your machine, make sure there are no clothes in the washer and add one AFFRESH™ tablet to the washer drum. Select Power, the Clean Washer cycle and then select START. This cycle will take approximately 50 minutes to complete. Allow the washer to complete the entire cycle without interruption.

FEATURES AND BENEFITS

Electronic Controls

Flexible electronic controls are easy to use whether you are a beginner or an expert.

Smart Dispensers

The Smart Dispensers make your washer truly automatic. This washer provides a three-compartment dispenser which includes separate compartments for main wash detergent, fabric softener, and bleach. The dispenser has large pour zones. The dispenser is self-cleaning, and can be easily removed. Laundry products are diluted with fresh water and added to the load at the proper time in the wash cycle.

Auto Water Level

This washer automatically adjusts water level for optimal cleaning and rinsing performance. Two sensors determine load size, load composition, and suds level, then the sensors adjust the water level to the proper setting. This eliminates guesswork. The water level is just right for every wash load size.

Larger Load Size

Since there is no agitator, you can wash larger, bulkier items such as a king-sized bedspread. You are also able to wash more clothes at one time, which means fewer loads.

Stainless Steel Drum

The stainless steel drum eliminates corrosion and enables higher spin speeds for more water extraction, helping to reduce drying time compared to traditional top-load washers.

High-Efficiency Wash System

Your new front-loading, high-efficiency washer saves time with fewer, larger loads. It also lowers your water and energy bills by helping conserve resources.

Spin Speeds

This washer automatically selects the spin speed based on the cycle selected. This factory setting can be changed, however. This washer offers up to five different spin speed choices.

Heating Element

This washer has a heating element that automatically heats the water to the optimal temperature on select cycles. This enables stepped cleaning, a process in which warm water is brought in and mixed with detergent first, then the water is heated. Stepped cleaning starts the wash cycle with warm water to remove stains (such as blood and grass).

Auto Load Sensing Technology

Intuitive intelligence “knows every load” determining load sizes, water levels, and how much cleaning time is needed.

Add Clothes

When this option is available at the beginning of the cycle, the Add Clothes Status Light will glow for the first 8 minutes. This washer allows an 8-minute period in which other garments may be added to a load.

Direct Injection Wash System

This washer channels 100% of the water through the dispensers to assure thorough rinse-out and mixture of all the laundry products before they touch any garments. The water is then sprayed from the top front onto the center of the load, providing even distribution and optimum cleaning performance. It is normal for small amounts of water to remain in the dispensers when the wash cycle is complete.

9

Efficient Detergent System with Anti-Escape Valve

This washer has a specially designed valve that closes during the wash portion of the cycle so that 100% of the water and detergent mixture is used on the load. The Efficient Detergent System ensures that no water or detergent is wasted.

6-Point Suspension System

Shock absorbers, 2 springs, and electronic controls are specially designed to help redistribute the load automatically and minimize movement of the wash drum during the spin cycle. The 6-Point Suspension System reduces the amount of force transmitted to the floor by the washer, resulting in reduced noise and vibration.

WASHER USE

NOTE: The panel shown above may be different from that of your model.

Starting Your Washer

WARNING: To reduce the risk of fire, electric shock, or injury to persons, read the IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS before operating this appliance.

The following is a guide to using your washer. Please refer to specific sections of this manual for more detailed information.

Do not store laundry products on the top surface of this washer. Vibration is normal during operation.

Using the Proper Detergent

Use only High Efficiency detergents. The package for this type of detergent will be marked “HE” or “High Efficiency.” This wash system, along with less water, will create too much sudsing with a regular non-HE detergent. Using regular detergent will likely result in washer errors, longer cycle times, and reduced rinsing performance. It may also result in component failures and noticeable mold or mildew. HE detergents are made to produce the right amount of suds for the best performance. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions to determine the amount of detergent to use. Remember, concentrated detergents such as 2x or higher will use less detergent based on load size.

Use only HE High Efficiency detergent.

First Wash Cycle Without Laundry

Before washing clothes for the first time, if not completed during the final installation step, choose the Normal/Casual cycle and run it without clothes. Use only HE High Efficiency detergent. Use ½ the manufacturer’s recommended amount for a medium-size load. This initial cycle serves to ensure the interior is clean before washing clothes.

For All Wash Cycles

1.Open the washer door by pulling on the handle. Sort laundry according to color and type of fabric. Place a load of sorted clothes in the washer. Do not overload washer. Overloading can cause poor cleaning.

The washer can be fully loaded, but not tightly packed. Washer door should close easily.

Mix large and small items and avoid washing single items. Load evenly.

10

Wash small items, such as infant socks, in mesh garment bags. It is recommended that more than one garment bag be used, and that each garment bag be filled with equal amounts of material.

When unloading garments, check under the gray colored seal at the front of the tub for small items.

2.Close the washer door by pushing it firmly until the lock clicks. The washer door will remain locked during the wash cycle.

NOTES:

After any wash cycle is completed, the door must be opened and then closed before a new cycle can begin.

The door can be opened only if STOP is selected while the Add Clothes light is glowing or if the cycle has been canceled.

See “To cancel a cycle” in “Changing Cycles, Options, and Modifiers” section.

3.Open the dispenser drawer and add laundry products to the detergent, bleach, or fabric softener compartments. Close drawer slowly to avoid spills. See “Using the Dispenser.”

4.Turn on the washer by selecting POWER. Select one of the cycles by turning the cycle selector. The indicator light for the selected cycle will glow green. When selecting a wash cycle, the preset options and modifiers (such as Wash Temp, Spin Speed, and Soil Level) for the selected cycle will glow green. Selectable options will glow amber. If an option or modifier is unavailable with a selected cycle, the light will not illuminate. The display shows the estimated time remaining. The preset settings provide the recommended fabric care for the selected cycle. See “Cycles.”

5.Select the desired Options. Not all options are available with all cycles. See “Options.”

6.Select the desired modifiers such as Wash Temp, Spin Speed, and Soil Level. Not all modifiers are available with all cycles and options. See “Modifiers.”

7.If desired, select the CYCLE SIGNAL. The signal is helpful when you are washing items that should be removed from the washer as soon as it stops. Select Loud, Soft, or Off.

8.If desired, select BUTTON SOUNDS. This feature makes a sound each time a button is pressed. Select Loud, Soft, or Off.

9.Select and hold START for approximately 1 second.

If you do not select START within 5 minutes of choosing a cycle, the washer automatically shuts off.

When the wash cycle is complete, the CLOTHES CLEAN status light glows, the door unlocks, and the wash load can be removed from the washer. The washer powers down automatically 60 minutes after the cycle is complete and the CLOTHES CLEAN light goes off. To power down the washer manually after the wash cycle is complete, select STOP once.

10.To use the same cycle again, press POWER first, then select START.

11.To begin the wash cycle later

Select DELAY START until the desired delay time (in hours) shows in the Estimated Time Remaining display. Select START. The countdown to the wash cycle will show in the display window.

IMPORTANT: When delaying a cycle, use only powdered detergents in the main wash compartment since liquid detergents may seep out of the compartment during Delay Start, before the wash cycle begins.

Using the Dispenser

Your new washer has a dispenser drawer with three separate compartments for your laundry products—one is for detergent, one is for liquid chlorine bleach, and one is for liquid fabric softener. Laundry products are diluted and dispensed automatically at the proper time during the wash cycle, making it unnecessary for you to return to the washer during the

cycle to add them.

It is normal for small amounts of water to remain in the dispensers when the wash cycle is complete.

Do not put laundry products directly into the wash tub. Always use the proper dispensers when adding laundry products.

Choosing the Right Detergent

Use only High Efficiency detergents. The package for this type of detergent will be marked “HE” or “High Efficiency.” This wash system, along with less water, will create too much sudsing with a regular non-HE detergent. Using regular detergent will likely result in washer errors, longer cycle times, and reduced rinsing performance. It may also result in component failures and noticeable mold or mildew. HE detergents are made to produce the right amount of suds for the best performance. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions to determine the amount of detergent to use.

Use only HE High Efficiency detergent.

To fill dispenser compartments

1.Pull out the dispenser drawer.

2.Add the desired laundry product to the proper compartment.

3.Push in the dispenser drawer slowly and completely (to avoid a spill).

IMPORTANT: If you are using the Delay Start option, powdered detergent must be used in the Main Wash compartment, since liquid detergents may seep out of the Main Wash compartment before the main wash begins.

Use the detergent manufacturer’s recommended amount for load size.
