Sorting Wash Loads

Sort by color (whites, lights, colors), soil level, fabric type
(sturdy cottons, easy care, delicates) and whether the fabric
produces lint (terry cloth, chenille) or collects lint (velveteen,
corduroy).
Proper Use of Detergent
Add liquid HE (High Efficiency) detergent
washer before adding clothes so that the detergent can work
effectively. Using too little or too much detergent is a common
cause of laundry problems. You can use less detergent if you
have soft water, a smaller load or a lightly soiled load. Use only
liquid detergent which has been specifically designed for use in
High Efficiency washers.
GE recommends the use of High Efficiency
all Energy Star rated washers. HE detergents are formulated to
work with low water wash and rinse systems. HE detergents
reduce the oversudsing problems commonly associated with
regular detergents. When using high efficiency or concentrated
detergents, consult the product label to determine amount required
for optimum performance. Excessive detergent will negatively
impact wash performance

Loading the Washer
Load dry items loosely, no higher than the top row of holes in
the washer basket. When loading wet items, make sure you
set the load/water level high enough to allow the items to
move freely. Water level should just cover the clothes. To
add items after washer has started, lift the lid and submerge
additional items next to the agitator.
• Do not wrap long items like sheets or pants around the
agitator.
• Do not wash fabrics containing flammable materials
(waxes, cleaning fluids, etc.).
• Agitation will not start with the lid up.
