Checklist for washer operation:
Check the following if the washer is not operating properly:
1. Power supply cord is plugged in.
2. Circuit breaker is not tripped or fuse is not blown.
3. Timer has been advanced to start of a cycle.
4. Water faucets are turned on.
5. Inlet and drain hoses are not kinked.
6. Washer lid is closed.
7. Inlet valve can freeze if not protected from the weather.
8. Suds level. Excess suds will slow the spin and cause poor
rinsing. Operate the washer through a complete cycle with no
detergent. Use less detergent or a controlled suds type
detergent in future loads.

Never place items in the washer that are dampened
with gasoline or other flammable fluids.
No washer can completely remove oil.
Do not dry anything that has ever had any type of oil on
it (including cooking oils).
Doing so can result in death, explosion, or fire.
It is recommended that fiberglass items not be washed in coin-
operated washers. If these items are washed in the washer, run
the washer through a complete cycle to rinse any residue away
that might be left in the washer.
Moving the washer to a new location
• Remove the front legs from the base of the washer.
• Place both rear leveling legs in the upper position and tape
• Apply tape to the side and bottom of the cabinet near the rear.
• Open washer lid, wedge a blanket between the tub ring and the
cabinet top restricting the tub movement.
Tape 2 sides.
