Loading and using the washer.
Sorting Wash Loads
Sort by color (whites, lights, colors), soil level,
fabric type (sturdy cottons, easy care, delicates),
and whether the fabric produces lint (terry cloth,
chenille), or collects lint (velveteen, corduroy).
Proper Use of Detergent
Add detergent and start the washer before adding
clothes so that the detergent can work effectively.
Using too little or too much detergent is a common
cause of laundry problems.
Loading the Washer
Load dry items loosely, no higher than the top
row of holes in the washer basket. When
loading wet items make sure you set the
load/water level high enough to allow the
items to move freely. Water level should just
cover the clothes. To add items after washer
has started, lift the lid and submerge additional
items next to the agitator.
Always follow fabric manufacturer's care label when laundering.
You can use less detergent if you have soft water, a
smaller load, or a lightly soiled load.
Do not wrap long items like sheets or pants
around the agitator.
Do not wash fabrics containing flammable
materials (waxes, cleaning fluids, etc.).
Agitation will not start with the lid up.
