Loading and using the washer.
Always follow fabric manufacturer's care label when laundering.
Sorting Wash Loads
Sort by color (whites, lights, colors), soil level,
fabric type (sturdy cottons, easy care, delicates)
and whether the fabric produces lint (terry cloth,
chenille) or collects lint (velveteen, corduroy).
Proper Use of Detergent
Add detergent before adding items so that the
detergent can work effectively. Using too little or
too much detergent is a common cause of laundry
For spots, apply pre-treatment to items as

Loading the Washer
Load dry items loosely in the washer basket. For best
results, load items evenly and loosely around the
outside of the basket. To add items after washer has
started, lift the lid and submerge additional items
around the outside of the basket.
Care and cleaning of the washer.
Wash Bas et: Leave the lid open after washing to allow
moisture to evaporate. If you want to clean the basket, use
a clean, soft cloth dampened with liquid detergent; then
rinse. (Do not use harsh or gritty cleaners.)
Fill Hoses: GE recommends changing the hoses every 5
Exterior: Immediately wipe off any spills. Wipe with damp
cloth. Try not to hit surface with sharp objects.
Interior: The occasional use of a cycle that contains bleach
will keep the inside of the washer clean.
Glass Lid (on some models): Use a clean, soft cloth
dampened with a vinegar and water solution.
You can use less detergent if you have soft water,
a smaller load or a lightly soiled load.
When using high efficiency or concentrated
detergents, consult the product label to determine
amount required for optimum performance. Excessive
detergent will negatively impact wash performance.
Do not place large items across the Infusor™. Load
them around the outside of the basket.
Do not wash fabrics containing flammable materials
(waxes, cleaning fluids, etc.).
Washer will not agitate or spin with the lid up,
however the timer will continue to run.
Moving and Storage: Ask the service technician to remove
water from drain pump and hoses. See the Installation
Instructions packed with product for information on how
to reinstall the shipping rod to keep the tub stationary
when moving the washer. For more information, visit or call 800.GE.CARES (800.432.2737).
Do not store the washer where it will be exposed to the
