them in washer or dryer.)
• Some pretreatment sprays or liquids can damage your washer's control panel.
• Use of dyes in your washer may cause staining of the plastic components. The dye will not damage

want to clean the inner-tub use a clean soft cloth dampened with liquid
detergent, then rinse. (Do not use harsh or gritty cleaners.)
Hoses connecting washer to faucet should be replaced every 5 years.
