Important Safety Instructions

Read all instructions before using this washer.
You can be killed or seriously injured if you don't follow these Important Safety Instructions:
• Failure to comply with these warnings could result in serious personal injuries.
Prevent Fire
• Do not wash items that have been previously cleaned in, soaked in, or spotted with gasoline, cleaning solvents, kerosene,
cooking oils, waxes, etc. Do not store these items on or near the washer. These substances give off vapors or chemical
reactions that could ignite or explode.
• Do not put oily or greasy rags or clothing on top of the washer. These substances give off vapors that could ignite the
materials.
•Do not add gasoline, cleaning solvents, or other flammable or explosive substances to the wash water. These substances
give off vapors that could ignite or explode.
• Under certain conditions, hydrogen gas may be produced in a hot water system that has not been used for 2 weeks or
more. HYDROGEN GAS IS EXPLOSIVE. If the hot water system has not been used for such a period, before using the
washer, turn on all hot water faucets and let the water flow from each for several minutes. This will release any
accumulated hydrogen gas. Hydrogen gas is flammable; do not smoke or use an open flame during this time.
• Do not store or use gasoline or other flammable vapors or liquids in the vicinity of this or any other appliance.
• Failure to comply with these warnings could result in fire, explosion, serious bodily injury and/or damage to the rubber or
plastic parts of the washer.
Protect Children
• Do not allow children to play on or in the washer. Close supervision of children is necessary 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 can become airtight chambers.
• Keep laundry products out of children's reach. To prevent personal injury, observe all warnings on product labels.
• Before the washer is removed from service or discarded, remove the washer door to prevent accidental entrapment.
• Failure to comply with these warnings could result in serious personal injuries.
Prevent Injury
• To prevent shock hazard and assure stability during operation, the washer must be installed and electrically grounded by a
qualified service person in accordance with local codes. Installation instructions are packed in the washer for installer's
reference. Refer to INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS for detailed grounding procedures. If the washer is moved to a new
location, have it checked and reinstalled by a qualified service person.
• To prevent personal injury or damage to the washer, the electrical power cord of the washer must be plugged into a
properly grounded and polarized 3-prong outlet. The third grounding prong must never be removed. Never ground the
washer to a gas pipe. Do not use an extension cord or an adaptor plug.
• Follow package directions when using laundry products. Incorrect usage can produce poisonous gas--resulting in serious
injury or death.
-
Do not combine laundry products for use in 1 load unless specified on the label.
-
Do not mix chlorine bleach with ammonia or acids such as vinegar.
• To prevent serious personal injury and damage to the washer:
-
All repairs and servicing must be performed by an authorized servicer unless specifically recommended in this
Owner's Guide. Use only authorized factory parts.
-
Do not tamper with controls.
-
Do not install or store the washer where it will be exposed to the weather.
-
Do not install on carpet. Install washer on a solid floor. It may be necessary to reinforce the floor to prevent vibration or
movement.
• To reduce the risk of electric shock, disconnect this appliance from the power supply before attempting any user
maintenance. Turning the controls to the OFF position does not disconnect this appliance from the power supply.
• To prevent injury, do not reach into the washer while parts are moving. Before loading, unloading or adding items, push in
the cycle selector knob and allow the drum to coast to a complete stop before reaching inside.
• Failure to comply with these warnings could result in serious personal injuries.
• This washer is equipped with an electrical overload protector. The motor will stop if it becomes overheated. The washer will
automatically restart after a cool down period of up to 30 minutes, if the washer has not been manually turned off during this
time.
