Important Safety Instructions

Read all instructions before using this laundry center.
To reduce the risk of fire, electrical shock, or injury to persons when using this laundry center, comply with the basic warnings listed
below.
Failure to comply with these warnings could result in serious personal injuries.
Prevent Fire
Do not wash or dry items that have been previously cleaned in, soaked in, or spotted with gasoline, cleaning solvents, kerosene, waxes,
etc. Do not store these items on or near the dryer. These substances give off vapors that could ignite or explode.
Do not place items exposed to cooking oils in your dryer. Items contaminated with cooking oils may contribute to a chemical reaction that
could cause a load to catch fire.
Do not put oily or greasy rags or clothing on top of the laundry center. 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.
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.
To prevent fire, do not use heat to dry items containing plastic, foam rubber or similarly textured rubber-like materials, or items containing
feathers or down. Use Air Fluff (No Heat) only.
Clean the dryer lint screen before or after each load. The interior of the dryer, lint screen housing and exhaust duct should be cleaned
approximately every 18 months by qualified service personnel. An excessive amount of lint build-up in these areas could result in inefficient drying and
possible fire. See Care and Cleaning, pages 12-13.
Do not operate the dryer if the lint screen is blocked, damaged or missing. Fire hazard, overheating and damage to fabrics can occur.
If your dryer has a drying rack, always replace the lint screen when finished using the drying rack.
Keep area around the exhaust opening and surrounding areas free from the accumulation of lint, dust and dirt.
Do not obstruct the flow of ventilating air. Do not stack or place laundry or throw rugs against the front or back of the laundry center.
Do not spray any type of aerosol into, on or near laundry center at any time.
Do not use fabric softeners or products to eliminate static unless recommended by the manufacturer of the fabric softener or product.
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 laundry
center.
