LAUNDRY CENTER CARE
Keep laundry center area clear and free from items that would
obstruct the flow of combustion
and ventilation air.
1. Pull out the lint screen and its cover.
Keep flammabme materiams and vapors, such as
gasomine, away from dryer.
Failure to do so can resumt in death, expmosion, or fire.
Separate the cover and the screen by squeezing the screen
and pulling on the cover at the same time.
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.
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.
Every load cleaning
The lint screen is located on the back wall of the dryer. Remove
lint before each load. A screen blocked by lint can increase
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 screen and cover back together and push firmly
back into place.
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.
If lint falls off the screen into the dryer during removal, check
the exhaust hood and remove lint. See "Venting
As needed cleaning
Laundry detergent and fabric softener residue can build up on the
lint screen. This buildup can cause longer drying times for your
clothes, or cause the dryer to stop before your load is completely
dry. The screen is probably clogged if lint falls off the screen.
Clean the lint screen (as outlined following) every 6 months, or
more frequently if it becomes clogged due to a residue buildup.
