Cleaning your washer

1. Exterior
Proper care of your washer can extend its life.
The outside of the machine can be cleaned with warm water and a neutral, non-
household detergent.
Immediately wipe off any spills. Wipe with a damp cloth.
Try not to damage the surface with sharp objects.
IMPORTANT: Do not use methylated spirit, solvents or similar products.
2. Interior
Dry around the washer door opening, flexible gasket and door glass. These areas
should always be clean to ensure a water-tight seal.
Run washer through a complete cycle using hot water.
Repeat process if necessary.
NOTE: Remove hard water deposits using only cleaners labeled as safe for washing
