READ ALL INFORMATION BEFORE USING. Use this appliance only for its intended purpose as described in this Owner’s Manual. WHEN USING THE WASHER Never reach into washer while it is moving. Wait until the machine has completely stopped before opening the lid.
The water level should just cover the clothes. Adjust the load size accordingly. Loosely load clothes no higher than the top row of holes in the washer tub. Wash/Spin Speed The agitator moves clothes around for a cleaner wash; the basket spins later in the cycle to release water from the load.
Select the water temperature for the wash and rinse cycles. Always follow fabric manufacturer’s care label or instructions when laundering. Follow the water temperature guide on washer lid. Wash Cycle The wash cycle controls the length of the washing process.
RINSE option. This option provides a second deep cold rinse in the Regular cycle. Turn the EXTRA RINSE knob to SET. The washer will pause for a few minutes before the EXTRA RINSE option begins. Liquid Bleach Dispenser The dispenser dilutes liquid chlorine bleach before it reaches into your wash load.
Add water to dispenser until it reaches the maximum fill line. Do not stop the washer during the first spin. This will cause the dispenser to empty too soon. Do not use the Fabric Softener Dispenser with AUTO SOAK or EXTRA RINSE.
