when the washer is used near children. As children grow, teach them the proper, safe use
of all appliances.
• Destroy the carton, plastic bag and other packing materials after the washer is unpacked.
Children might use them for play. Cartons covered with rugs, bedspreads or plastic sheets

Prevent Injury

must be plugged into a properly grounded and polarized 3-prong outlet. The third
