Your new washer has many special features that contribute to
proper cleaning and fabric care. Here are descriptions
features and their benefits:
The CATALYST _ Cleaning
To provide improved stain and soil removal, CATALYST_ uses
your detergent in a unique way. Water flushes through the
dispenser to dissolve the detergent. Then the detergent mixture
is sprayed onto the load while the washer spins at low speed.
This cleaning action will last 1 to 5 minutes depending
cycle selected. The washer then stops spinning and fills to the
selected water level and continues washing with the selected
cycle. The CATALYST_ Cleaning Action is available in the Ultra
Clean and the Whitest Whites cycles. Select any Speed Control
setting, but for best results, select Heavy Duty.
The TOTAL CARE
Agitator moves in three directions to ensure
proper cleaning. At the bottom of your washer the agitator vanes
move back and forth to flex the fabric, loosening the soil. The
upper portion of the agitator has vanes that push the clothes
down in a spiraling pattern to the area of best cleaning action. A
"rollover" motion displaces the clothes already at the bottom. For
your largest loads, the TOTAL CARE
Agitator responds with a
vertical motion that senses the "large load" and guides items to
Your washer can handle full-sized loads of heavy work clothes,
towels, or mixed items; see "Loading."
Loads with only a few
items can have a lower water setting and need less wash time.
The TRIPLE SMART
dispensers make your washer truly
It is unnecessary for you to return to the washer
during the cycle to add detergent, bleach, or fabric softener.
Laundry products are diluted with fresh water and added to the
load at the proper time in the wash cycle.
The QUIET PAK
Ill System is designed to reduce water sounds
and ringing noises. The cabinet is insulated with sound-damping
materials. A sound-absorbing
blanket under the motor and
gearcase also helps to insulate the washer to reduce vibration
Water Level and Temperature
A Water Level control gives you the flexibility to save water when
washing small loads. The Water Temperature control knob lets
you select a wash and rinse water temperature setting based on
the type of load you are washing. The settings for Automatic
Temperature Control (ATC) take away the worry of undissolved
detergent and ensure consistent cleaning results from season to
season with warm and cold washes.
of speeds are provided for wash action (of
agitator) and spin motion (of basket). A Speeds selector control
knob lets you select a wash/spin
speed for different types of
fabrics and soil levels.
