Your new washer has a dispenser drawer with four separate
for your laundry products--two
are for detergent,
one is for liquid chlorine bleach, and one is for liquid fabric
softener. Laundry products are diluted and dispensed
automatically at the proper time during the wash cycle, making it
unnecessary for you to return to the washer during the cycle to
add them.
It is normal for small amounts of water to remain in the
dispensers when the wash cycle is complete.
Do not put laundry additives directly into the wash tub. Always
use the proper dispensers when adding laundry products.
the Right Detergent
Use only High Efficiency detergents. The package for this type of
detergent will be marked "HE" or "High Efficiency." This wash
system, along with less water, will create too much sudsing with a
regular non-HE detergent. Using regular detergent will likely result
in washer errors, longer cycle times, reduced rinsing performance,
and may result in component
failures and noticeable mold or
mildew. HE detergents are made to produce the right amount of
suds for the best performance. Follow the manufacturer's
instructions to determine the amount of detergent to use.

1. Pull out the dispenser drawer.
2. Add the desired laundry product to the proper compartment.

the recommended
amount to the main wash compartment.
Main Wash detergent
(Letter C in Dispenser Illustration)
Add liquid or powdered HE detergent to this compartment
your main wash cycle. The detergent separator must always be in
place, either in the front or back position.
If you are using the Prewash, Soak or Delay option,
powdered detergent must be used in the main wash
since liquid detergents may seep out of the main
wash compartment,
before the main wash begins.
Do not fill beyond the "MAX" level.
Liquid or powdered color-safe bleach may be added to the
Main Wash compartment
along with the same type of
detergent, liquid or powdered.
