IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION.

READ ALL INSTRUCTIONS BEFORE USING.

WARNING! For your safety, the information in this manual must be followed to minimize the risk of fire or explosion, electric shock, or to prevent property damage, personal injury, or loss of life.

WATER HEATER SAFETY

Under certain conditions hydrogen gas may be produced in a water heater that has not been used for two weeks or more. Hydrogen gas can be explosive under these circumstances.

If the hot water has not been used for two weeks or more, prevent the possibility of damage or injury by turning on all hot water faucets and allowing them to run for several minutes. Do this before using any electrical appliance which is connected to the hot water system. This simple procedure will allow any built-uphydrogen gas to escape. Since the gas is flammable, do not smoke or use an open flame or appliance during this process.

PROPER INSTALLATION

This washer must be properly installed and located in

play on, with, or inside this or any other appliance.

WHEN USING THE WASHER

 

Use this appliance only for its intended purpose as described in this Owner’s Manual.

Never reach into washer while it is moving. Wait until the machine has completely stopped before opening the lid.

Do not mix chlorine bleach with ammonia or acids such as vinegar and/or rust remover. Mixing different chemicals can produce a toxic gas which may cause death.

Do not wash or dry articles that have been cleaned in, washed in, soaked in, or spotted

with combustible or explosive substances (such as wax, oil, paint, gasoline, degreasers, dry-cleaningsolvents, kerosene, etc.) which may ignite or explode. Do not add these substances to the wash water. Do not use or place these substances around your washer or dryer during operation.

The laundry process can reduce the flame retardancy of fabrics. To avoid such a result, carefully follow the garment manufacturer’s wash and care instructions.

To minimize the possibility of electric shock, unplug this appliance from the power supply or disconnect the washer at the household distribution panel by removing the fuse or switching off the circuit breaker before attempting any maintenance or cleaning. NOTE: Turning the Cycle Selector knob to an off position or pressing PAUSE does NOT disconnect the appliance from the power supply.

Never attempt to operate this appliance if it is damaged, malfunctioning, partially disassembled, or has missing or broken parts, including a damaged cord or plug.

WHEN NOT IN USE

Turn off water faucets to relieve pressure on hoses and valves and to minimize leakage if a break or rupture should occur. Check the condition of the fill hoses; they should be replaced every 5 years.

Before discarding a washer, or removing it from service, remove the washer lid to prevent children from hiding inside.

Do not attempt to repair or replace any part of this appliance unless specifically recommended in this Owner’s Manual, or in published userrepair instructions that you understand and have the skills to carry out.

Do not tamper with controls.

READ AND FOLLOW THIS SAFETY INFORMATION CAREFULLY.

Temperature

Select the water temperature for the wash and rinse cycles. Always follow fabric manufacturer’s care label or instructions when laundering.

Custom Care

The agitator moves clothes around for a cleaner wash; the basket spins later in the cycle to release water from the load. The Wash/Spin Speed dial sets the speed of both the agitator and the basket.

Wash Speeds:

With Normal wash speed, the agitator will move at a higher speed. Use for cottons, denims and play clothes.

With Gentle wash speed, the agitator moves slower. Use for delicate and knit items.

Spin Speeds:

The Fast spin speed is for normal items. Use it to remove more water from your clothes to allow them to dry faster in the dryer.

The Slow spin speed is for delicate items like sweaters and lingerie. When using Slow spin speed, clothes will be less dry than when using Fast spin speed.

Wash Cycle

The wash cycle controls the length of the washing process. The chart below will help you match the wash cycle setting with your clothing.

COTTONS For heavy to lightly soiled cottons, household linens, work and play clothes.

WRINKLE FREE For easy care,wrinkle-freeand permanent press items.

DELICATES For lingerie andspecial-carefabrics with light to normal soil.

PREWASH For heavily soiled clothes or for clothes with a care label that recommends prewashing before washing.

Extra Rinse

When you use extra detergent or bleach to clean heavily soiled clothes, you may want to use the Extra Rinse option.

This option provides a second deep cold rinse in the COTTONS andWRINKLE FREE cycles.

Turn the Extra Rinse knob to ON.

The washer will pause for a few minutes before the Extra Rinse option begins.

simply put it back on.

The fabric softener dispenser automatically releases liquid fabric softener at the proper time during the cycle.

Do not stop the washer during the first spin. This will cause the dispenser to empty

too soon.

To use, follow these steps:

1 Make sure dispenser is securely attached to agitator.

2 Use only liquid fabric softener. Pour into dispenser, using amount recommended on package.

Do not pour anything into the agitator if the agitator cap or dispenser is removed.

Never pour fabric softener directly on clothes. It may stain them.

Remove the dispenser from the top of the agitator.

Separate the dispenser cup from the cover by grasping the top and pushing down on the inside of the cup with your fingers. Dispenser cup will pop free from the cover.

To clean the dispenser, soak both the dispenser cup and the dispenser cover in the following solution:

1 US gallon (3.8 liters) warm water

1/4 cup (60 ml) heavy duty liquid detergent

1 cup (240 ml) bleach

If necessary, loosen build-upwith a clean, soft cloth after soaking. Do not use a stiff brush; you may roughen the surface of the dispenser.

Rinse and reassemble dispenser. Place dispenser back on the agitator.

Liquid Bleach Dispenser (depending on model)

The dispenser dilutes liquid chlorine bleach before it reaches into your wash load.

1 Check clothing care labels for special instructions.

2 Measure liquid bleach carefully, following instructions on the bottle.

Never pour undiluted liquid chlorine bleach directly onto clothes or into the wash basket.

Do not pour powdered bleach into bleach dispenser.

3 Before starting the washer, pour measured amount of bleach directly into bleach dispenser. Avoid splashing orover-fillingdispenser. If you prefer to use powdered bleach, add it into the wash basket with your detergent.

Do not mix chlorine bleach with ammonia or acids such as vinegar and/or rust remover. Mixing can produce a toxic gas which may cause death.

Loading and using the washer.

Always follow fabric manufacturer’s care label when laundering.

Sorting Wash Loads

Sort by color (whites, lights, colors), soil level, fabric type (sturdy cottons, easy care, delicates), and whether the fabric produces lint (terry cloth, chenille), or collects lint (velveteen, corduroy).

Proper Use of Detergent

Using too little or too much detergent is a common

 

cause of laundry problems.

 

Loading the Washer

Load dry items loosely, no higher than the top row of holes in the washer basket. When loading wet items make sure you set the load/water level high enough to allow the items to move freely. Water level should just cover the clothes. To add items after washer has started, push in Cycle knob and submerge additional items next to the agitator. Close the lid and pull Cycle knob out to restart.

Do not wrap long items like sheets or pants around the agitator.

Do not wash fabrics containing flammable materials (waxes, cleaning fluids, etc.).

Water will fill and pump out of the washer and the timer will advance with the lid up, but as a safety precaution the washer will not agitate or spin.

Care and Cleaning of the Washer

Wash Basket: Leave the lid open after washing to allow moisture to evaporate. If you want to clean the basket use a clean soft cloth dampened with liquid detergent, then rinse. (Do not use harsh or gritty cleaners.)

Fill Hoses: Hoses connecting washer to faucet should be replaced every 5 years.

Exterior: Immediately wipe off any spills. Wipe with damp cloth. Try not to hit surface with sharp objects.

Moving and Storage: Ask the service technician to remove water from drain pump and hoses. See the Installation Instructions packed with product for information on how to reinstall the shipping rod to keep the tub stationary when moving the washer. For more information, visitwww.Hotpoint.com, or call800.GE.CARES (800.432.2737). Do not store the washer where it will be exposed to the weather.

Long Vacations: Be sure water supply is shut off at faucets. Drain all water from hoses if weather will be below freezing.
