Important Safety Instructions:

Avoid fire hazard or electrical shock. Do not use an adaptor
plug or extension cord or remove grounding prong from electrical power cord.
Failure to follow this warning can cause serious injury, fire or death.
•To reduce the risk of fire, electrical shock, or injury to persons when using this
washer, comply with the basic warnings listed below.
•Failure to comply with these warnings could result in serious personal injuries.
Prevent Fire
•Do not wash items that have been previously cleaned in, soaked in, or spotted with
gasoline, cleaning solvents, kerosene, cooking oils, waxes, etc. Do not store these
items on or near the washer. These substances give off vapors or chemical reactions
that could ignite or explode.
•Do not put oily or greasy rags or clothing on top of the washer. These substances give
off vapors that could ignite the materials.
•Do not add gasoline, cleaning solvents, or other flammable or explosive substances
to the wash water. These substances give off vapors that could ignite or explode.
Do not store or use gasoline or other flammable vapors or liquids in the vicinity
of this or any other appliance.
•Under certain conditions, hydrogen gas may be produced in a hot water system that
has not been used for 2 weeks or more.
HYDROGEN GAS IS EXPLOSIVE. If the hot water system has not been used for such
a period, before using the washer, turn on all hot water faucets and let the water flow
from each for several minutes. This will release any accumulated hydrogen gas.
Hydrogen gas is flammable; do not smoke or use an open flame during this time.
•Failure to comply with these warnings could result in fire, explosion, serious bodily
injury and/or damage to the rubber or plastic parts of the washer.
Protect Children
•Do not allow children to play on or in the washer. Close supervision of children is
necessary when the washer is used near children. As children grow, teach them the
proper, safe use of all appliances.
•Destroy the carton, plastic bag and other packing materials after the washer is
unpacked. Children might use them for play. Cartons covered with rugs, bedspreads
or plastic sheets can become airtight chambers.
•Keep laundry products out of children's reach. To prevent personal injury, observe all
warnings on product labels.
•Before the washer is removed from service or discarded, remove the washer door to
prevent accidental entrapment.
•Failure to comply with these warnings could result in serious personal injuries.
Prevent Injury
•To prevent shock hazard and assure stability during operation, the washer must be
installed and electrically grounded by a qualified service person in accordance with
local codes. Installation instructions are packed in the washer for installer's reference.
Refer to INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS for detailed grounding procedures. If the
washer is moved to a new location, have it checked and reinstalled by a qualified
service person.
•To prevent personal injury or damage to the washer, the electrical power cord of the
washer must be plugged into a properly grounded and polarized 3-prong outlet. The
third grounding prong must never be removed. Never ground the washer to
a gas pipe. Do not use an extension cord or an adaptor plug.
•Follow package directions when using laundry products. Incorrect usage can produce
poisonous gas--resulting in serious injury or death.
- Do not combine laundry products for use in 1 load unless specified on the label.
- Do not mix chlorine bleach with ammonia or acids such as vinegar.
