Check with a qualified electrician if you are not sure the washer is properly grounded..

GROUNDING INSTRUCTIONS

For a grounded. cord-connected washer: This washer must be grounded. in the event of a malfunction or breakdown. grounding will reduce the risk of electrical shock by providing a path of least resistance for electric current. This washer is equipped with a cord having an equipment-grounding conductor and a grounding plug. The plug must be plugged into an appropriate outlet that is properly installed and grounded in accordance with all local codes and ordinances.

WARNING: Improper connection of the equipment grounding conductor can result in a risk of electric shock.

Excessive Weight Hazard

Use two or more people to move and install washer.

Failure to do so can result in back or other injury.

IMPORTANT: Position the washer so that the rear of the washer is within approximately 3 ft (900 mm) of its final location.

There are 4 bolts in the rear panel of the washer that support the suspension system during transportation.

These bolts also retain the power cord inside the washer until the bolts are removed.

Using a 13 mm wrench. loosen each of the bolts.

Once the bolt is loose. move it to the center of the hole and completely pull out the bolt. including the plastic spacer covering the bolt.

HHZ'

Once all 4 bolts are removed. discard bolt and spacers.

Then pull the power cord through the opening of the rear panel and close the hole with the attached cap.

Properly leveling your washer avoids excessive noise and vibration.

Check the levelness of the washer by placing a [eve[ on the top edge of the washer. first side to side. then front to back.

If the washer is against a wail. move the washer out slightly before tipping back.

If the washer is not [eve[. first prop the front with a wood block and adjust the feet as necessary; then prop the back and adjust feet as necessary.

Repeat this step until washer is [eve[.

Make sure a[[ four feet are stable and resting on the floor.

Then check that the washer is perfectly [eve[ (use a [eve[).

After the washer is [eve[. use a 1 7 mm open-end wrench to turn the nuts on the feet tightly against the washer cabinet.

IMPORTANT: A[[ four feet must be tightened.

If the nuts are not tight against the washer cabinet. the washer may vibrate.

The washer should not move front to back. side to side. or diagonally when pushed on its top edges.

Slide the washer to its final location.

Confirm the levelness of the washer.

Check the electrical requirements.

Be sure that you have the correct electrical supply and the recommended grounding method.

See "Electrical Requirements."

Check that a[[ parts are now installed.

If there is an extra part. go back through the steps to see which step was skipped.

The dispenser is self-cleaning. and can be easily removed.

Iaundry products are diluted with fresh water and added to the load at the proper time in the wash cycle.

Clean Washer with AFFRESH TM Cycle

This cycle uses steam to raise the temperature of the unit and makes the washer self-cleaning. flushing the machine's interior free of dirt and other residue.

The use of AFFRESH r. asher cleaner or liquid chlorine bleach with this cycle wi[[ remove and help avoid odor-causing residue.

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.

Super Size Capacity

Since there is no agitator. you can wash largeb bulkier items such as a king-sized bedspread.

You are also able to wash more clothes at one time. which means fewer loads.

Smooth Balance M Balance System

To reduce washer "walk" and "off-balance" conditions. your new washer combines:

2 Springs to isolate vibration

4 Shock absorbers at the washer base to minimize movement

Commercial Quality Stainless Steel Drum

The commercial quality stainless steel drum eliminates corrosion and enables higher spin speeds for more water extraction. reducing drying time compared to traditional front-load washers.

High-Efficiency Wash System

Your new front-loading. high-efficiency washer saves time with fewer. larger loads. and 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 help remove stains (such as blood and grass). This heater is active in the Whitest Whites.

Heavy Duty.

Normal/Casual. and Power Wash cycles.

Automatic Temperature Control

The automatic temperature control electronically senses and maintains a uniform water temperature.

Automatic temperature control regulates incoming hot and cold water.

Automatic temperature control is automatically turned on when a cycle is selected.

Add Clothes

Clothes can be added to the load during the first 8 minutes of the cycle.

During this time. the Status Indicator wi[[ indicate it is okay to add clothes.

Special Cleaning Action with Sensi-Care

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.

Efficient Detergent System Dynamic Off-Balance Detection

This washer has a specially designed valve that closes during the wash portion of the cycle This washer uses two sensors to detect load size and the amount of off-balance within the so that 100% of the water and detergent mixture is used on the load.

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. Remembec concentrated detergents such as 2x or higher will use less detergent based on load size.

Use only H High fficiency detergent.

First Wash Cycle Without Laundry

LAUNDRY TIPS

Preparing clothes for washing

Follow these recommendations to help you prolong the life of your garments.

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

Use only HHigh Lfficiency detergent.

Close zippers. snaps. and hooks to avoid snagging other items.

Remove pins. buckles. and other hard objects to avoid scratching the washer interior.

Remove non-washable trim and ornaments.

Empty pockets and turn them inside out.

Turn down cuffs; brush away lint and dirt.

Turn wool and synthetic knits inside out to avoid pilling.

Tie strings and sashes so they will not tangle.

Mend tears. loose hems. and seams.

Treat spots and stains.

Stained or wet garments should be washed promptly for best results.

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

Wash small items. such as infant socks. in a mesh garment bag. To create a balanced load.

Sorting

Separate heavily soiled items from lightly soiled ones. even if they would normally be washed together.

Separate lint-givers (towels. chenille) from lint-takers (corduroy. synthetics. permanent press).

When possible. turn lint-givers inside out.

Separate dark colors from light colors. colorfast items from non colorfast items.

Sort by fabric and construction (sturdy cottons. knits. delicate items).

Unloading Remove clothes from washer after the cycle is completed.

Metal objects such as zippers. snaps. and buckles may rust if left in the washer basket for a long time.

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