Important Safety Instructions Con't
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.
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 of a gas laundry center 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 weather.
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.
