Always read and obey all safety messages.

This is the safety alert symbol.

This symbol alerts you to potential hazards that can kill or hurt you and others.

All safety messages will follow the safety alert symbol and either the word "DANGER" or "WARNING." These words mean:

You can be killed or seriously injured if you don't immediately follow instructions.

You can be killed or seriously injured if you don't follow instructions.

All safety messages will tell you what the potential hazard is. tell you how to reduce the chance of injury. and tell you what can happen if the instructions are not followed.

IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS

WARNING: To reduce the risk of fire. electric shock. or injury to persons when using the washer. follow basic precautions. including the following:

Do not allow children to play on or in the washer.

Close supervision of children is necessary when the washer is used near children.

Before the washer is removed from service or discarded. remove the door or lid.

Do not reach into the washer if the drum. tub or agitator is moving.

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

Fire Hazard

Never pace items in the washer that are dampened with gasoline or other flammabme fluids.

He washer can compmetely remove oil

Do not dry anything that has ever had any type of oH on it (including cooking oils).

Doing so can resumt in death. e×plosion. or fire.

Measure detergent and pour it into the washer. If desired. add powdered or liquid color safe bleach. Drop a sorted load of clothes loosely into your washer.

Load evenly to maintain washer balance.

Mix large and small items. Items should move easily through the wash water. Overloading can cause poor cleaning.

(OPTIONAL) Add Liquid Chlorine Bleach.

NOTE: Follow the manufacturer's directions for proper use.

Undiluted bleach will damage any fabric it touches.

The damage appears as rips. holes. tears. or color loss and may not show up until several washings later. To avoid spilling. use a cup with a pouring spout. Do not let bleach splash. drip. or run down into the washer basket. Always measure liquid chlorine bleach. Do not guess. Do not use more than the manufacturer's recommended amount for a full load. Use less with a smaller load size.

Style f: With Chlorine Bleach Dispenser (on some models)

Use only liquid chlorine bleach in this dispenser. Pour measured liquid chlorine bleach into the liquid chlorine bleach dispenser. Bleach is immediately fed into washer and is diluted automatically during the wash part of the cycle.

Style 2: Without Chlorine Bleach Dispenser (on some models)

Let the washer fill and begin agitating the load.

Add bleach 5 minutes into the wash cycle for best cleaning and so that bleach can be removed in the rinse cycle. Pour bleach around the agitator. not directly onto the load to avoid damaging clothing or other items in the load.

EmectricaB Shock Hazard

Plug into a grounded 3 prong outmet.

Do not remove ground prong.

Do not use an adapter.

Do not use an e×tension cord.

Failure to follow these instructions can resuJt in death. fire. or emectrica shock.

(OPTIONAL) Add Liquid Fabric Softener.

NOTE: Do not spill or drip any fabric softener onto the clothes.

Undiluted fabric softener can stain fabrics. Always dilute fabric softener with warm water. Too much fabric softener can make some items (diapers and towels) nonabsorbent.

If this happens. do not use it every load. or use less of it in each load.

Style 1: With Liquid Fabric Softener Dispenser (on some models)

Use only liquid fabric softener in this dispenser. Pour measured liquid fabric softener into the dispenser.

Softener is added automatically during the rinse portion of the cycle. Dilute liquid fabric softener by filling the dispenser with warm water until liquid reaches the crossbar in the dispenser opening.

Style 2: Without Liquid Fabric Softener Dispenser (on some models)

In the final rinse ONLY. add fabric softener that has been diluted with 1/2to 1 cup (125 to 250 mL) warm water.

Close the washer lid. Washer will not agitate or spin with the lid open.

Turn the LOAD SIZE or WATER LEVEL selector to the correct setting for your wash load and the type of fabric being washed. You may change the load size or water level selection after the washer has started filling by turning the selector to a different setting.

WASHERCARE

Clean your washer interior by mixing 1 cup (250 mL) of chlorine bleach and 2 cups (500 mL) of detergent.

Pour this mixture into your washer and run it through a complete cycle using hot water.

Repeat this process if necessary.

Remove any hard water deposits using only cleaners labeled as washer safe.

Cleaning the liquid fabric softener dispenser (on some models):

Remove dispenser by grasping top with both hands and squeezing. while pushing upward with thumbs.

Rinse dispenser under warm water. then replace it.

NOTE: Some models are equipped with a liquid fabric softener dispenser. To avoid damage to the washer or clothing do not wash clothes with the liquid fabric softener dispenser removed or add detergent or bleach to this dispenser; it is for liquid fabric softener only.

Replace inlet hoses after 5 years of use to reduce the risk of hose failure. Periodically inspect and replace inlet hoses if bulges. kinks. cuts. wear or leaks are found.

When replacing your inlet hoses. mark the date of replacement on the label with a permanent marker.

Because some water may stay in the hoses. freezing can damage your washer. If storing or moving your washer during freezing weather. winterize it.

Winterizing your washer

Shut off both water faucets.

Disconnect and drain water inlet hoses. Pour 1 qt (1 L) of R.V.-type antifreeze in the basket.

Run washer on a drain and spin setting for about 30 seconds to mix the antifreeze and water.

Unplug washer or disconnect power.

To use washer again

Flush water pipes and hoses. Reconnect water inlet hoses.

Turn on both water faucets.

Plug in washer or reconnect power.

Run the washer through a complete cycle with 1 cup (250 mL) of detergent to clean out antifreeze.

Storage. 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 washer or disconnect power.

Turn off the water supply to the washer. This helps avoid accidental flooding (due to a water pressure surge) while you are away.
