Operating Tips


• Use either liquid or granular laundry detergent. For

best results, be sure detergent is added to the
washer BEFORE the load and be sure the wash
water is above 60



• Use the correct amount of detergent for the load size,

soil level and water conditions. Use more detergent if
you have hard water and very soiled loads.

If you have soft water or a lightly soiled load, use less
detergent. (See manufacturer’s instructions.)

• Wipe up any detergent spills on the washer.


• For best results add the detergent to the washtub

before adding the load.

• Put dry, unfolded clothes loosely in the tub, up to the

top row of holes for a maximum load.

Do not wrap large items like sheets around the


• Mix large and small items for best circulation. Wash

bulky items like blankets separately.

• When laundering wrinkle-free items or items of

delicate construction, washable woolens or loosely
knit items, never use less than the MEDIUM water
level setting. This will minimize shrinkage, wrinkling
and pulling of seams.

• Close lid carefully to avoid slamming.

Additional Tips

• During the spin, it is possible for the load to become

unevenly distributed in the tub. If this happens, push
in the control dial, open the lid, redistribute the load,
close the lid and restart the washer. The spin will
resume at the point it was interrupted.

• The washer will pause briefly throughout each cycle.

These pauses are normal.

• This washer is designed so that it will not agitate or

spin when the lid is open. It will, however, fill with
the lid open so water is available for pretreating
stains or diluting fabric softener.

• If you open the lid during a spin cycle, the washer

will stop. When the lid is closed and the washer is
restarted, the washer will continue the cycle at the
point it was interrupted.
