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.
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 door

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.

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.

To reduce the risk of electric shock, disconnect this appliance from the power supply

before attempting any user maintenance. Turning the controls to the OFF position does not
disconnect this appliance from the power supply.

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 drum 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.
