INSTALLATION

Choosing the Proper Location

Install the washing machine on a solid floor that is strong and rigid enough to support the weight of the washing machine, even when fully loaded. without flexing or bouncing. If the floor has too much flex, you may need to reinforce it to make it more rigid. If the floor is not solid, it may cause severe vibration and noise.
1 Clean the floor before installation.
- Make sure to select solid and smooth ground.

2 Two or more people are needed for moving and unpacking the washing machine.

3 Allow for sufficient space between the walls and the washing machine for installation.

Space Requirements

You must allow sufficient space for water lines. the drain line, and airflow.

NOTE Be sure to allow for wall, door, or floor moldings that may incr he required clearances.

Clearances

21.6" (54.86 cm)

25.2" (64 cm)

45" (114.3 cm)

33.5" (85.09 cm)

3.5" (8.89 cm)

24" (60.96 cm)
1" (2.5 cm)

NOTE The floor must be strong and rigid enough to support the weight of the washer, when fully loaded, without flexing or bouncing. If your floor has too much flex. you may need to reinforce it to make it more rigid.
A floor that is adequate for a top-loading washer may not be rigid enough for a front loading washer, due to the difference in the spin speed and direction. If the floor is not solid, your washer may vibrate and you may hear and feel the vibration throughout your house.
Before installing the washer, make sure the floor is clean, dry and free of dust, dirt, water and oils so the washer feet can not slide easily.
Leveling feet that can move or slide on the floor can contribute to excess vibration and noise due to poor contact with the floor.
If a drip pan must be used, take extra care to follow the instructions provided with the drip pan and make sure the leveling feet are adjusted for firm and even contact with the pan. Use of drip pans and failure to properly level the machine may result in increased vibration and noise during operation.

INSTALLATION

ENGLISH

The detergent dispenser drawer of the washing machine has a dispenser compartment for each detergent type. Add each detergent to its appropriate compartment.

1 Pull out the detergent dispenser drawer.

2 Add each detergent to its appropriate compartment.
- If you use a liquid detergent, check if the liquid detergent cup is in place.
- If you use a powdered detergent, remove the liquid detergent cup and put the powder in the main wash detergent compartment.

Main wash detergent compartment

Pre-wash detergent compartment

Liquid fabric softener compartment

3 Close the detergent dispenser drawer slowly.
- Slamming the detergent dispenser drawer may result in the detergent overflowing into another compartment or pouring into the tub earlier than programmed.

NOTE

It is normal for a small amount of water to remain in the dispenser compartments at the end of the cycle.

Using Detergent/Fabric Softener

Recommended Detergent

Make sure to use HE (High-Efficiency) detergent for front-loading washing machines. HE detergents dissolve more efficiently and produce fewer suds to ensure efficient washing and rinsing. Use the correct amount of detergent as indicated on the detergent packaging.

Specially designed to use only HE (High-Efficiency) detergent

NOTE

Only use HE detergents, because using a regular detergent may produce excessive suds.
HE detergents produce fewer suds, dissolve more efficiently to improve washing and rinsing performance, and help to keep the interior of your washer clean.
Use less detergent for soft water. Wipe up any spills immediately, as liquids could damage the finish and the control panel of the washing machine.
Using too much detergent can cause a build- up in the tub resulting in unsatisfactory performance and machine malfunction.
If you use a detergent that does not dissolve easily or a detergent with high viscosity, it will leave a residue on the tub, which may not rinse properly.

PREPARATION

ENGLISH

Fabric Softener Compartment

This compartment holds liquid fabric softener. which will be automatically dispensed during the final rinse cycle.

NOTE Always follow the manufacturer’s recommendations when adding fabric softener.
Do not exceed the maximum fill line. Using too much fabric softener may result in stained clothes.
Dilute concentrated fabric softeners with warm water. Do not exceed the maximum fill line.
Never pour fabric softener directly onto the load or into the drum.

Pre-Wash Detergent Compartment

Add liquid or powdered detergent to this compartment when using the Pre-Wash option.
Always use HE (High-Efficiency) detergent with your washing machine.

NOTE

When using the pre-wash option, if liquid detergent is to be used for the main wash. the liquid detergent cup accessory must be used in the main wash dispenser, to prevent the main wash liquid detergent from being dispensed immediately.
The amount of detergent added for the Pre-Wash option is 1/2 the amount recommended for the main wash cycle. For example, if the main wash cycle requires one measure of detergent, add 1/2 measure for the Pre-Wash option.

Main Wash Detergent Compartment

This compartment holds laundry detergent for the main wash cycle, which is added to the load at the beginning of the cycle. Always use HE (High-Efficiency) detergent with your washing machine.
Never exceed the manufacturer’s recommendations when adding detergent. Using too much detergent can result in detergent buildup on clothing and the washer. Either powdered or liquid detergent may be used.

NOTE

Liquid or powdered color-safe bleach may be added to the main wash compartment with detergent of the same type.
When using liquid detergent, make sure the liquid detergent cup and insert are in place. Do not exceed the maximum fill line.
When using powdered detergent, remove the insert and liquid detergent cup from the compartment. Powdered detergent will not dispense with the liquid detergent cup and insert in place.

Is water leaking from a faucet or a water line?

Is a drain pipe or a drain hose clogged?

Check the faucets or water lines.
- If the water lines are loosely connected, see page 14, Connecting Water Lines, to connect them properly.
Unclog the drain pipe or drain hose. Contact a plumber if necessary.

Excessive suds or failure to rinse

Did you use more than the recommended amount of detergent? Is the soil level higher than the size of the load?

Use the recommended amount of detergent for the load.
If the soil level is low, reduce the detergent quantity to less than the recommended level.

Only use detergent with the HE (High-Efficiency) logo.

Staining Did you add detergent directly to the tub? Did you remove the load immediately after it finished? Did you sort and wash the clothes by color or soil?

Make sure to load detergent into the detergent dispenser drawer.
Remove the load immediately after it finishes.
Sort and separate dark colors from light or white ones, and heavily soiled items from lightly soiled ones. See page 19, Sorting Laundry. for details

TROUBLESHOOTING

ENGLISH

Problem Possible Causes Solutions

Wrinkling Did you remove the load immediately after it finished? Did you overload the tub? Did you reverse the hot and cold water inlets?

Remove the load immediately after it finishes.
Do not overload the tub. Hot water rinse can cause garments to wrinkle. Check the inlet hose connections.

Power will not turn on Is the power cord plugged in properly?

Has a house fuse blown, a circuit breaker tripped, or a power outage occurred?

Make sure that the plug is secured in a grounded 3-prong, 120 V (60 Hz) outlet.
Reset the circuit breaker or replace the fuse. Do not increase the fuse capacity.
If the problem is a circuit overload. have it corrected by a qualified electrician.

The door does not open when the cycle pauses or finishes

Is the temperature in the tub too high?

Is the water level in the washer high?

The washing machine has a safety lock built into the door to prevent burning.
Leave the door closed and wait until the door lock icon disappears from the display.
Allow the washer to complete the programmed cycle, or press the SPIN button.

The wash cycle time is longer than usual

Is the washing machine overloaded? Are other options added to the wash cycle?

This is normal. The washing machine automatically adjusts the cycle time for the amount of laundry, water pressure. water temperature, and other operating conditions.

It is musty or moldy in the tub

Has the incorrect detergent been used?

Did you clean the tub periodically?

Use only HE (High-Efficiency) detergent recommended for a front-loading washing machine.
See page 30, clean the inside and outside of the washing machine periodically.

Banging noise when washer is filling with water (Water Hammer)

Plumbing in the home moves or flexes when the water valves in the washer shut off.

Household water supply pressure is very high.

Water hammer is not caused by a defect in the washer. Install water hammer arrestors (purchased separately at hardware or home improvement store) between the fill hose and the washer for best results.
Adjust household water supply regulator to a  lower pressure or contact a plumber to have a regulator installed.

Problem Possible Causes Solutions

Strange odors coming from washer

Heater in dryer.

First time using washer

Buildup of dirt on gasket or drum. dirty or clogged drain pump filter. kinked or clogged drain hose

During the initial phase of operation. lint from laundry can settle on the heater and cause odors. This is normal and will not affect performance.
Smell comes from the rubber attached to the washer door. It will eventually dissipate after first couple of wash cycles.
Periodically clean the gasket. Mold and foreign substances inside the gasket may produce mildew or musty smells.
Clean the drain pump filter regularly. Foreign substances on the drain pump filter may produce mildew or musty smells.
If the drain hose is not installed properly, the odor may be emitted because of a backflow of drainage into the tub. Make sure that the drain hose is not kinked or clogged.
