WASHER/DRYER CARE

Cleaning Your Washer

Cleaning the exterior
Use a soft, damp cloth or sponge to wipe up any spills such as
detergent or bleach. Occasionally wipe the outside of your
washer to keep it looking new.
Cleaning the interior
Clean your washer interior by mixing 1 cup (250 mL) of chlorine
bleach and 2 scoops or caps full of detergent. Pour this into your
washer and run it through a complete cycle using hot water.
Repeat this process if necessary.
NOTE: Remove any hard water deposits using only cleaners
labeled as washer safe.

Water Inlet Hoses

Replace inlet hoses after 5 years of use to reduce the risk of hose
failure. Periodically inspect and replace inlet hoses if bulges,
kinks, cuts, wear, or leaks are found.
When replacing your inlet hoses, mark the date of replacement
on the label with a permanent marker.

Cleaning the Dryer Interior

Explosion Hazard
Use nonflammable cleaner.
Failure to do so can result in death, explosion,
or fire.
To clean dryer drum
1. Apply a liquid, non-flammable household cleaner to the
stained area and rub with a soft cloth until all excess dye
is removed.
2. Wipe drum thoroughly with a damp cloth.
3. Tumble a load of clean cloths or towels to dry drum.
NOTE: Garments which contain unstable dyes, such as denim
blue jeans or brightly colored cotton items, may discolor the
dryer interior. These stains are not harmful to your dryer and will
not stain future loads of clothes. Dry unstable dye items inside
out to prevent dye transfer.

Cleaning the Lint Screen

Every load cleaning
The lint screen is located in the dryer door opening. Remove lint
before each load. A screen blocked by lint can increase drying
time.
To clean
1. Pull out the lint screen and its cover.
2. Separate the cover and the screen by squeezing the screen
and pulling on the cover at the same time.

3. Roll lint off the screen with your fingers. Do not rinse or wash
screen to remove lint. Wet lint is hard to remove.
4. Put the lint screeen and cover back together and push firmly
back into place.
IMPORTANT:
Do not run the dryer with the lint screen loose, damaged,
blocked, or missing. Doing so can cause overheating and
damage to both the dryer and fabrics.
Some towels made of synthetic fibers and natural fibers
(polyester and cotton blends) may shed more lint than other
towels, causing your dryer's lint screen to fill up faster. Be
sure to remove lint from the lint screen before and after drying
new towels.
If lint falls off the screen into the dryer during removal, check
the exhaust hood and remove lint. See "Venting
Requirements."
