WARNING: To reduce the risk of fire, electric shock, or injury to
persons, read the IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS before

The following is a guide to using your washer. Please refer to
specific sections of this manual for more detailed information.
Do not store laundry products on the top surface of this washer.
Vibration is normal during operation.
First Wash Cycle Without Laundry
Before washing clothes for the first time, choose NORMAL/
CASUAL cycle and run it without clothes. After installation, if a
complete cycle has not been run without clothes, use V_the
normal recommended amount of powdered or liquid High
Efficiency (HE) detergent or 1/4 the normal recommended
amount
of regular powdered or liquid detergent. This initial cycle serves
to ensure the interior is clean before washing clothes.
1. To load washer
Open the washer door by pulling on the handle.
Sort laundry according to color and type of fabric. Place a
load of sorted clothes in the washer• Do not overload washer.
Overloading can cause poor cleaning.
The washer can be fully loaded, but not tightly packed.
Washer door should close easily.
Mix large and small items. Avoid washing a single item.
Load evenly.
It is recommended that you wash small items such as
infant socks in a mesh garment bag.
When unloading garments, occasionally check under the
rubber rim at the front of the tub for small items.
2.
Close the washer door by pushing it firmly until the lock
clicks. The washer door will remain locked during the wash
cycle.
NOTE: After any wash cycle is completed, the door must be
opened and then closed before a new cycle can begin. The
door can be opened only if PAUSE/CANCEL is selected while
the ADD A GARMENT light is glowing or if the cycle has been
canceled. See "To Cancel a Cycle."
3.
Open the Dispenser Drawer and add laundry products to the
detergent, bleach, or fabric softener compartments. Close
drawer slowly to avoid spills. See "Using the Dispenser."
NOTE: For best performance, use High Effficiency

marked "HE" or "High Efficiency." The HE_t "wash action"
along with less water could create too much sudsing with a
regular detergent.

The indicator light for the selected cycle will glow. When
selecting a Wash Cycle, the preset options, Water Temp, Spin
Speed, and soil level for the selected cycle will glow. The

If you do not select START within 5 minutes of choosing a
cycle, the washer automatically shuts off.
When the wash cycle is complete, the CLOTHES CLEAN
status light glows, the door unlocks, and the wash load
can be removed from the washer. The washer powers
down automatically 5 minutes after the cycle is complete
and the CLOTHES CLEAN light goes off. To power down
