motor in case of an overload. This can occur if:

Cleaning the Interior
Clean the interior of the washer periodically to remove
any dirt, soil, odor, mold, mildew or bacteria residue

be cleaned and freshened depends on factors such as

through your washer, or the use of cold water. Failure

conditions, including unpleasant odor and/or
permanent stains on the washer or wash load.
