Important Safety Instructions (Con't)
• 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.
• To prevent fire, do not use heat to dry items containing plastic, foam rubber or
similarly textured rubber-like materials, or items containing feathers or down. Use Air
Fluff (No Heat) only.
• Clean the dryer lint screen before or after each load. The interior of the dryer, lint
screen housing and exhaust duct should be cleaned approximately every 18 months
by qualified service personnel. An excessive amount of lint build-up in these areas
could result in inefficient drying and possible fire. See Care and Cleaning.
• Do not operate the dryer if the lint screen is blocked, damaged or missing. Fire
hazard, overheating and damage to fabrics can occur. If your dryer has a drying rack,
always replace the lint screen when finished using the drying rack.
• Keep area around the exhaust opening and surrounding areas free from the
accumulation of lint, dust and dirt.
• Do not obstruct the flow of ventilating air. Do not stack or place laundry or throw
rugs against the front or back of the laundry center.
• Do not spray any type of aerosol into, on or near laundry center at any time.
• Do not use fabric softeners or products to eliminate static unless recommended by
the manufacturer of the fabric softener or product.
• Do not place items exposed to cooking oils in your dryer. Items contaminated with
cooking oils may contribute to a chemical reaction that could cause a load to catch fire.
• 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 laundry center.
• Do not allow children to play on or in the laundry center. Close supervision of children
is necessary when the laundry center 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 laundry center
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 laundry center is removed from service or discarded, remove the washer
lid and dryer door to prevent accidental entrapment.
• Failure to comply with these warnings could result in serious personal injuries.
• To prevent shock hazard and assure stability during operation, the laundry center
must be installed and electrically grounded by a qualified service person in accordance
with local codes. Installation instructions are packed in the laundry center for the
installer's reference. Refer to INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS for detailed grounding
procedures. If the laundry center is moved to a new location, have it checked and
reinstalled by a qualified service person.
• To prevent personal injury or damage to the laundry center, the electrical power cord
of a gas laundry center must be plugged into a properly grounded system. Never
ground the laundry center to a gas pipe. Do not use an extension cord or an
