Washing Procedures


6. Set cycle selector knob and washer controls according to

type, size, and soil level of each load.

(See Operating Instructions card for your specific model controls.)

7. Start the washer.

Close the washer door and pull out the cycle selector knob. For your safety, the
door will automatically lock during the entire wash cycle.

Washer will fill; water level will be lower than bottom of the door.

Washer will tumble the load in one direction, pause, then tumble in the
other direction.

To stop the washer, push in the cycle selector knob.

To open the door during tumbling, push in the cycle selector knob. Wait for

the water to run off of the door.

To change a cycle, push in the cycle selector knob and turn it clockwise to

the desired setting. Pull out the knob to restart the washer.

To open the door during a spin cycle, push in the cycle selector knob and wait

approximately 1 minute. The door can then be opened. Do not force open the
locked door.

8. Remove items when the cycle is completed.

Place washed items in automatic dryer, line dry, or dry flat as directed by fabric
care label. Excess wrinkling, color transfer or odors may develop in items left in the
washer after the cycle has ended.

9. General Precautions

If the dispenser drawer is pulled out more than 1-1/2" when the washer

is in operation, the washer will shut off. The Door Lock indicator light will
turn off and the door will be unlocked. Slowly close the drawer, and the washer
will automatically resume operation.

Do not slam the washer door closed or try to force the door open when

locked (Door Lock light ON). This could result in damage to the washer.

DO NOT leave the washer door open. An open door could entice children to

hang on the door or crawl inside the washer.

• To avoid damaging the washer and personal injury, DO NOT hang on or lean

against the washer door.

• Do not place detergent, bleach or fabric softener containers on top of the

washer. They can damage the finish or controls.
