First Wash Cycle Without
Laundry
Before washing clothes for the first time, choose the Normal/
Casual cycle and run it without clothes.
Use only HE High
Efficiency
detergent.
Use 1/2the manufacturer's
recommended
amount for a medium sized load. This initial cycle serves to
ensure the interior is clean before washing clothes.
For All Wash Cycles
1. Load your Washer.
2. Close the door.

The Wash Indicator light will illuminate.
The estimated cycle time will appear in the display.
The time may fluctuate
to better indicate the time remaining
in the cycle.
NOTE: The actual time required for a cycle may differ from
the estimated
time in the display depending
on the water
pressure, water temperature,
detergent,
and laundry.
Before your washer starts to fill, it will make a series of
clicking noises to check the door lock and do a quick drain.

When the cycle is complete,
the Door Lock light will go out
and "End" will appear in the display.
DO NOT attempt
to open the door until the Door Lock light
is off. To add a forgotten
item, see "Adding
items" section
(page 17).
When your Washer is restarted
after a pause, expect a delay
of up to 15 seconds
before the cycle continues.
Pressing Power cancels the cycle and stops your washer.
The Wash, Rinse and Spin indicator lights will illuminate
during those portions
of the cycle.
WARNING:
Do not place anything on top of your washer while it
is running.
Your new washer has a dispenser
drawer with three separate
compartments
for your laundry additives--one
is for detergent,
one is for liquid chlorine bleach, and one is for liquid fabric
softener. Laundry additives
are diluted and dispensed
automatically
at the proper time during the wash cycle, making it
unnecessary
for you to return to the washer during the cycle to
add them.
It is normal for small amounts
of water to remain in the
dispensers
when the wash cycle is complete.
Do not put laundry additives
directly into the wash tub. Always
use the proper dispensers
when adding laundry additives.
Choosing
the Right Detergent
Use only High Efficiency detergents.
The package
for this type
of detergent
will be marked "HE" or "High Efficiency."
This wash
system, along with less water, will create too much sudsing
with a regular non-HE detergent.
Using regular detergent
will
likely result in washer errors, longer cycle times and reduced
rinsing performance.
It may also result in component
failures
and noticeable
mold or mildew. HE detergents
are made to
produce the right amount
of suds for the best performance.
Follow the manufacturer's
instructions to determine the amount
of detergent
to use.
Use only HE High Efficiency detergent.
