Operating your washer

WARNING
To reduce the risk of fire, electric shock or injury to persons, read the Important Safety
Instructions in this Use & Care Guide before operating your washer.
WARNING
DO NOT wash water resistant and wa-
ter repellent clothing or other materials.
Failure to follow these instructions may
result in an abnormal vibrating and out-
of-balance condition that could result in
physical injury, property damage, and/or
appliance damage.
STEPS
1. Sort
laundry
into loads
that can
be washed
together.
2. Prepare
items for
washing.
3. Pretreat
stains and
heavy soil.
4. Add
laundry
load to
wash tub.
RISK OF INJURY
• Sort by recommended cycle and water
temperature.
• Separate white, light, and colorfast items
from dark and non-colorfast items.
• Separate items that shed lint from items
that attract lint. Casual, synthetic, knit,
and corduroy items will pick up lint from
towels, rugs, and bedspreads.
• Separate heavily soiled items from lightly
soiled items.
• Separate lacy, sheer, loosely knit, or
delicate items from durable items.
• Empty pockets.
• Brush off lint and dirt. Shake out rugs and
beach towels.
• Close zippers, fasten hooks, button
buttons, and tie strings/sashes. Remove
non-washable trims and ornaments.
• Place delicate and small items (bras,
hosiery, etc.) in a mesh bag (not included).
See stain treatment function in Cycle
Options for your particular model or Stain
Removal Guide for more information.
• Combine large and small items in a load.
Load large items first.
• Large items should not be more than half
the total wash load.
• Washing single items is inefficient and may
cause an out-of-balance load. Add 1 or 2
similar items to help balance load.
• Wash single h eavy items (comforter,
sleeping bag, etc.) separately.
• The washer can be fully loaded, but the
items should not be ti ghtly packed. The
door should close easily.
ENTRAPMENT and TIP-OVER HAZARD
DO NOT leave the door open if there are
small children or pets present. An open
door could entice children to hang on
the door or crawl inside the washer. If
there are no small children present, you
may leave the door ajar to prevent odor
build up.
TIPS
CAUTION
IMPORTANT
DO NOT machine wash
items containing fiberglass.
Small particles of fiberglass
left in drum may transfer to
fabrics in other loads and
cause skin irritation and/or
damage to fabrics.
DO NOT wash water
resistant and water repel-
lent type clothing or other
materials
Mend rips and tears to
prevent further damage
during washing.
Turn knit items inside out
to prevent pilling.

sistant and water repellent
