Solutions to Common Inquiries

Normal Operating
Sounds
You may or may not hear the following
sounds from your new washer:
A. DRAIN HOSE The washer has a
flexible drain hose to carry water from
the washer to the stand pipe of your
home. You will hear water flowing into
your stand pipe. This is a normal part
of the operation of the washer.
B. WATER VALVES/DISPENSER As
water enters the dispenser system,
it is common to hear a water flowing
sound. This normal sound will vary
slightly based on the water pressure in
your home.
C. DOOR LOCK Your washer is
equipped with a door lock with an
electric solenoid. There will be a
clicking sound as the washer door
is being locked or unlocked.
D. DRAIN/RECIRCULATION PUMPS
Your washer is equipped with multiple
high velocity system pumps. It is
normal to hear humming and gurgling
sounds as water is either pumped
from the washer during the drain
phase or recirculated during the
prewash and wash phases. Both
of these sounds are normal and
indicate that your pump is functioning
correctly.
E. HIGH SPEED MOTOR A power-
ful motor is used to drive the drum
to high spin speeds to extract water
from your load. You will hear a sound
associated with these higher spin
speeds. This sound is normal and will
vary slightly as the spin speed varies
with load size and cycle selected.

CAUTION
Abnormal, on-going sounds may be an
indication of a pending washer failure
and should be investigated by a quali-
fied technician. Refer to "Noise" section
of Service Prevention Checklist in this
manual.
