WHAT'S NEW UNDER THE LiD?
Cleaning
with
Less Water
Traditional agitator-style
washing machine
Washplate
Washer with low-water
washplate wash system
The most striking
difference
in your
new washer
is the low-water
washplate
wash system. The washer
automatically
adjusts
the
water
level to the load size--no
water
level selector
is needed.
As the washer
dampens
and moves the load,
the level of the
clothes
will settle in the basket. This is normal,
and does not
indicate
that more clothes
should
be added.
IMPORTANT:
You will not see a washer
basket
full of water
like
with your
past agitator-style
washer.
Choosing
the Right Detergent
Use only High Efficiency
detergents.
The package
will be
marked
"HE" or "High
Efflciency."
Low-water
washing
creates
excessive
sudsing with
a regular
non-HE detergent.
Using regular
detergent
will likely
result in longer
cycle times and reduced
rinsing
performance.
It may also result in component
failures
and noticeable
mold or mildew.
HE detergents
are made to
produce
the right
amount
of suds for the best performance.
Follow the manufacturer's
instructions to determine
the amount
of detergent
to use.
i
When
loading
the washer
with dirty
laundry,
fill it evenly
around
the basket
wall.
Aufomaflc
Load Size Sensing
Once you start the
cycle,
the lid will loci<, and the washer
will
begin the sensing process
to determine
the correct
water
level
for the load. This may take several
minutes.
You will find a
step-by-step
description
in the "Cycle
Status Lights"
section.
Use only High Efficiency (HE) detergent.
Concentrated
Cleaning
Low-water
cleaning
means concentrated
cleaning.
Rather
than diluting
detergent
as done in an agitator-style
washer,
this washer
delivers
the detergent
directly
to the soils.
The washplate
moves the load while water
is added
in small
amounts
until the load
is wet. This low-water
wash method
uses less water and energy
compared
to a traditional
agitator-style
washer.
Normal
Sounds You Can Expect
At different
stages of the wash cycle, you may hear sounds and
noises that are different
from those of your
previous
washer.
For
example,
you may hear a clicking
and hum at the beginning
of
the cycle, as the lid loci< goes through
a self-test.
There will be
different
kinds of humming
and whirring
sounds as the washplate
moves the load. And sometimes,
you may hear nothing
at all, as
the washer
determines
the correct
water
level for your load or
allows
time for clothes
to soak.
