Remove several items, rearrange load evenly in basket, and add
detergent. Close lid and press START/Pause/Unlock.
Do not add more than 1 or 2 additional items after cycle has
started to avoid tightly packing or unbalancing.
Small items may have been caught in pump or between basket
and tub, which can slow draining.
Cycles with lower spin speeds remove less water than cycles
with high spin speeds. Use the recommended cycle/speed spin
for your garment. To remove extra water in the load, select Drain
& Spin. Load may need to be rearranged to allow even
distribution of the load in the basket.
Tightly packed or unbalanced loads may not allow the washer
to spin correctly, leaving the load wetter than normal. Evenly
arrange the wet load for balanced spinning. Select the Drain &
for loading recommendations.
Check drain hose for proper installation. Use drain hose form
and securely attach to drainpipe or tub. Do not tape over drain
above the oor. Remove any clogs from drain hose.
Always measure and follow detergent directions for your
load. To remove extra suds, select Rinse & Spin. Do not
add detergent.
