Wash/Rinse
Temp
Select a water temperature
based on the type of load you are
washing. Use the warmest wash water safe for fabrics. Follow
garment label instructions.
Warm rinses leave the loads drier than cold rinses. Warm rinses
increase wrinkling. In cold climates, a warm rinse makes the load
more comfortable to handle. Cold rinses save energy.

In wash water temperatures colder than 70°F (21 °C), detergents
do not dissolve well. Soils may be difficult to remove.
Auto Temp Control
ATC (Auto Temp Control) electronically
senses and maintains a
uniform water temperature.
ATC regulates incoming hot and cold
water. The ATC is automatically turned On when a cycle is
selected. See "Preset Cycle Settings" in "Cycles."
ATC ensures consistent cleaning.
ATC works for the wash temperature with Hot/Cold, Warm/
Warm, Warm/Cold,
and Cold/Cold settings.
ATC works for the Warm rinse setting by regulating the water
temperature at approximately
104°F (40°C).
The Cold rinse temperatures
depend on the cold water at
your faucet.
Refer to this chart for suggested load types and their corresponding
cycles. Listed to the right are the options available within each of

LAUNDRY TIPS
Preparing
clothes for washing
Follow these recommendations
to help you prolong the life of
your garments.
Close zippers, snaps, and hooks to avoid snagging other
items. Remove pins, buckles, and other hard objects to avoid
scratching the washer interior. Remove non-washable
trim
and ornaments.
Empty pockets and turn them inside-out.
Turn down cuffs; brush away lint and dirt.
Turn synthetic knits inside-out to avoid pilling.
Tie strings and sashes so they will not tangle.
Mend tears, loose hems, and seams.
Treat spots and stains.
Stained or wet garments should be washed promptly for best
results.
Mix large and small items, avoid washing single items, load
evenly.
Wash small items such as infant socks in mesh garment
bags. It is recommended
that more than one garment bag be
used and that each garment bag be filled with equal amounts
of material.
Sorting
Separate heavily soiled items from lightly soiled ones, even if
they would normally be washed together. Separate lint-givers
(towels, chenille) from lint-takers (corduroy, synthetics,
permanent press). When possible, turn lint-givers inside-out.
Separate dark colors from light colors, colorfast items from
noncolorfast
items.
Sort by fabric and construction
(sturdy cottons, knits, delicate
items).
