Important Safety
Do not use or mix
liquid chlorine bleach with other
household chemicals such as toilet
cleaners, rust removers, acid or
products containing ammonia. These
mixtures can produce dangerous
fumes which can cause serious injury
or death.
Note: The instructions appearing in
this Owner's Guide are not meant to
cover every possible condition and
situation that may occur. Common
sense and caution must be practiced
when installing, operating and
maintaining any appliance.
Protect Children
Do not allow children to play on or in the laundry center. Close
supervision of children is necessary when the laundry center 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
laundry center 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 laundry center is removed from service or discarded,
remove the washer lid and dryer 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
laundry center must be installed and electrically grounded by a qualified service
person in accordance with local codes. Installation instructions are packed in the
laundry center for the installer's reference. Refer to INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
for detailed grounding procedures. If the laundry center is moved to a new location,
have it checked and reinstalled by a qualified service person.
To prevent personal injury or damage to the laundry center, the
electrical power cord must be plugged into a properly grounded system. Never
ground the laundry center 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.
To prevent serious personal injury and damage to the laundry center:
All repairs and servicing must be performed by an authorized servicer
unless specifically recommended in this Owner's Guide. Use only authorized
factory parts.
Do not tamper with controls.
Do not install or store the laundry center where it will be exposed to the
ALWAYS disconnect the laundry center from the electrical supply
before attempting any service or cleaning. Failure to do so can result in electrical
shock or injury.
Do not use any type spray cleanser when cleaning dryer interior.
Hazardous fumes or electrical shock could occur.
To prevent injury, do not reach into the washer while parts are
moving. Before loading, unloading or adding items, push in the cycle selector knob
and allow the tub to coast to a complete stop before reaching inside.
To prevent injury, do not reach into the dryer if the drum is moving.
Wait until the dryer has stopped completely before reaching into the drum.
A thermal limiter switch automatically turns off the dryer motor in the unlikely
event of an overheated situation (electric dryers only). A service technician must
replace the thermal limiter switch after correcting the fault.
The washer is equipped with an electrical overload protector. The motor will stop
if it becomes overheated. The washer will automatically restart after a cool down
period of up to 30 minutes, if the washer has not been manually turned off during
this time.
Failure to comply with these warnings could result in serious personal injuries.
