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.
Do not store or use gasoline or other flammable vapors or liquids in the vicinity
of this or any other appliance.
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.
• To prevent serious personal injury and damage to the washer:
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 washer where it will be exposed to the weather.
• To reduce the risk of electric shock, disconnect this appliance from the power supply
before attempting any user maintenance. Turning the controls to the OFF position does
not disconnect this appliance from the power supply.
• 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 drum to coast
to a complete stop before reaching inside.
• Failure to comply with these warnings could result in serious personal injuries.
• This 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.
