Load the Clothes Washer

The tub can be loaded completely full with dry
unfolded clothes. However, do not pack the tub

Overloading may reduce washing efficiency and pos­
sibly cause creasing or wrinkling of the load.

When washing big bulky items, such as a rug, that do
not till the tub completely, a few towels may be added
for best performance.

To load a forgotten item immediately after the
clothes washer has started, press the START/STOP
button. The door will remain unlocked for approxi­
mately 3 minutes into the start of the cycle. Add the

item(s), close the door and press the START/STOP
button to resume the cycle.

Once the door has locked, it is possible to load a
forgotten item. Press the START/STOP button and
wait approximately 2 minutes for the “Door Locked”
indicator to turn off. Open the door, add the item(s),
close the door and press the START/STOP button to
resume the cycle.

Add laundry detergent on top of the load in the tub and
additives to the dispensers (See Detergent page 6).
