Important Safety Instructions

 

 

 

SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS

Read all instructions before using this washer.

To reduce the risk of fire, electrical shock, or injury to persons when using this washer, comply with the basic warnings listed below.

Failure to comply with these warnings could result in serious personal injuries.

Prevent Fire

Do not wash items that have been previously cleaned in, soaked in, or spotted with gasoline, cleaning solvents, kerosene, cooking oils, waxes, etc. Do not store these items on or near the washer. These substances give off vapors or chemical reactions that could ignite or explode.

Do not put oily or greasy rags or clothing on top of the washer. These substances give off vapors that could ignite the materials.

Do not add gasoline, cleaning solvents, or other flammable or explosive substances to the wash water. These substances give off vapors that could ignite or explode.

Under certain conditions, hydrogen gas may be produced in a hot water system that has not been used for 2 weeks or more. HYDROGEN

GAS IS EXPLOSIVE. If the hot water system has not been used for such a period, before using the washer, turn on all hot water faucets and let the water flow from each for several minutes. This will release any accumulated hydrogen gas. Hydrogen gas is flammable; do not smoke or use an open flame during this time.

Failure to comply with these warnings could result in fire, explosion, serious bodily injury and/or damage to the rubber or plastic parts of the washer.

FOR YOUR SAFETY

Do not store or use gasoline or other flammable vapors or liquids in the vicinity of this or any other appliance.

Protect Children

Do not allow children to play on or in the washer. Close supervision of children is necessary when the washer is used near children. As children

grow, teach them the proper, safe use of all appliances.

Destroy the carton, plastic bag and other packing materials after the washer is unpacked. Children might use them for play. Cartons covered

with rugs, bedspreads or plastic sheets can become airtight chambers.

Keep laundry products out of children's reach. To prevent personal injury, observe all warnings on product labels.

Before the washer is removed from service or discarded, remove the washer lid to prevent accidental entrapment. Failure to comply with these warnings could result in serious personal injuries.

Prevent Injury

To prevent shock hazard and assure stability during operation, the washer must be installed and electrically grounded by a qualified service person in accordance with local codes. Installation instructions are packed in the washer for installer's reference. Refer to INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS for detailed grounding procedures. If the washer is moved to a new location, have it checked and reinstalled by a qualified service person.

If the power cord is damaged, it should be replaced by the manufacturer, service technician or a qualified person to prevent any risk.

To prevent personal injury or damage to the washer, the electrical power cord of the washer must be plugged into a properly grounded and polarized 3-prong outlet. The third grounding prong must never be removed. Never ground the washer to a gas pipe. Do not use an extension cord or an adaptor plug.

Follow package directions when using laundry products. Incorrect usage can produce poisonous gas--resulting in serious injury or death.

Do not combine laundry products for use in 1 load unless specified on the label.

Do not mix chlorine bleach with ammonia or acids such as vinegar.

To prevent serious personal injury and damage to the washer:

All repairs and servicing must be performed by an authorized servicer unless specifically recommended in this Owner's Guide. Use only authorized factory parts.

Do not tamper with controls.

Do not install or store the washer where it will be exposed to the weather.

ALWAYS disconnect the washer from the electrical supply before attempting any service or cleaning. Failure to do so can result in electrical shock or injury.

To prevent injury, do not reach into the washer while parts are moving. Before loading, unloading or adding items, push in the cycle selector knob and allow the tub to coast to a complete stop before reaching inside.

Failure to comply with these warnings could result in serious personal injuries.

This washer is equipped with an electrical overload protector. The motor will stop if it becomes overheated. The washer will automatically restart after a cool down period of up to 30 minutes, if the washer has not been manually turned off during this time.

Washing Procedures

Follow the guidelines below for preparing the wash load.

Read the Operating Instructions card for operating your specific model.

Sortlaundryintoloadsthatcanbe

washedtogether.

Always read and follow fabric care and laundry product labels.

To reduce the risk of fire, electrical shock, or injury to persons, read Important Safety Instructions, pages 2-3, before operating this washer.

1. Sort laundry into loads that can be washed together.

Sort items by recommended water temperatures, wash time, and agitate/spin speeds.

Separate white, light, and colorfast items from dark and noncolorfast items.

Separate items which shed lint from items which attract lint. Permanent press, synthetic, knit and corduroy items will pick up lint from towels, rugs and chenille bedspreads.

Separate heavily soiled items from lightly soiled items.

Separate lacy, sheer and loosely knit items from sturdy items.

Emptypockets.

Placedelicateitemsinameshbag.

BleachDispenser(somemodels)

2.Prepare items for washing.

Empty pockets.

Brush off lint and dirt. Shake out rugs and beach towels.

Close zippers, fasten hooks, tie strings and sashes, and remove nonwashable trims and ornaments.

Remove pins, decorative buttons, belt buckles, and other objects which could be damaged. This also helps protect other items in the wash load.

Mend rips and tears to prevent further damage during washing.

Place delicate items such as bras, shoulder pads, hosiery, and belts in a mesh bag to prevent tangling during the wash cycle.

Turn knit items inside out to prevent pilling.

3.Pretreat stains and heavy soil.

See Stain Removal, pages 6-7, for details.

4. Add a measured amount of detergent to the wash tub before adding the laundry load.

Follow detergent manufacturer's directions. The amount required depends on type of detergent, load size and soil level, and water hardness.

5.If desired, add liquid bleach to Bleach Dispenser (some models).

Before adding the wash load, add liquid bleach to bleach dispenser located in left front corner under the lid:

3/4 cup (180 ml) for small loads

1 cup (240 ml) for large loads

1-1/4 cups (300 ml) for extra-large loads.

Then add 1 cup (240 ml) water to flush the dispenser.

Do not use powdered bleach in the bleach dispenser.

For models without a bleach dispenser, dilute the recommended amount of liquid chlorine bleach in 1 quart (.95 L) water. Add it to wash water after

a few minutes of agitation. Do not pour bleach directly on wash load.
