Drop a sorted load of clothes loosely into your washer.
2.
3.
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 3).
Close the washer lid.
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."
You may change the load size selection after the washer
has started filling by turning the selector to Reset and
then to the desired new setting.
4. 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.

surface of garments).

wash cycle you want. Reduce the wash time when using a
small load size setting. See "Selecting a Cycle and Time."
