Starting Your Washer

Fire Hazard
Never place items in the washer that are
dampened with gasoline or other flammable
No washer can completely remove oil.
Do not dry anything that has ever had any type of
oil on it (including cooking oils).
Doing so can result in death, explosion, or fire.
Electrical Shock Hazard
Plug into a grounded 3 prong outlet.
Do not remove ground prong.
Do not use an adapter.
Do not use an extension cord.
Failure to follow these instructions can result in
death, fire, or electrical shock.
1. Measure detergent and pour it into the washer. If desired, add
powdered or liquid color safe bleach. Add extra detergent for
the Super Wash cycle.
Drop a sorted load of clothes loosely into your washer.
Load evenly to maintain washer balance. Mix large and
small items.
Items should move easily through the wash water.
Overloading can cause poor cleaning.
To reduce wrinkling of permanent press clothes and some
synthetic knits, use a large load size to provide more
space (see step 5).
2. Pour measured liquid fabric softener into the fabric softener
dispenser, if desired.
Do not overfill. The dispenser holds 3 oz. (94 mL), or a capful
of fabric softener.
Add warm water to fill the dispenser until it reaches the
crossed opening at the bottom of the funnel-shaped
portion of the dispenser.
The fabric softener is dispensed into the first deep rinse
water automatically.
Do not spill or drip any fabric softener on the clothes.
NOTE: Use only liquid fabric softener in this dispenser.
3. Close the washer lid.
4. Turn the WATER LEVEL selector to the correct setting for your
wash load and the type of fabric being washed.
Choose a load size that allows the load to move freely for
best fabric care. See "Loading."

5. Set the TEMPERATURE selector to the correct setting for the
type of fabric and soils being washed. Use the warmest water
safe for fabric. Follow garment label instructions.
