WASHER CARE
Cleaning the exterior

Occasionally wipe the outside of your washer to keep it looking
new. Use mild soap and water. Do not use abrasive products.

the interior

wipe the inner
door to remove any detergent residue. Use mild soap and water.
Do not use abrasive products.

Use a soft damp cloth or sponge when necessary. Check the fold
of the seal periodically for any foreign objects.
Cleaning
the dispenser drawer
The dispenser drawer is removable for easy cleaning.
1. Unlock the dispenser drawer by pressing the Release Lever in
the Prewash compartment.
See "Using the Dispenser."
Remove the drawer.
2. Remove the inserts (the siphon from the softener and bleach
compartments
and the separator).
3. Wash the parts under running water.
4. Replace the inserts and return the dispenser to the drawer.
Replace inlet hoses after five 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, record the date of replacement.
Install and store your washer where it will not freeze. Because
some water may stay in the hoses, freezing can damage your
washer. If storing or moving your washer during freezing weather,
winterize it.

Operate your washer only when you are at home. If you will be on
vacation or not using your washer for an extended period of time,

To transport the washer:
1. If washer will be moved during freezing weather, put in 1 qt
(1 L) of R.V.-type antifreeze in the drum. Run washer on a
Drain & Spin cycle.
