Fire Hazard
Never place items in the washer that are dampened
with gasoline or other flammable
fluids.
No washer can completely remove oil.
Do not dry anything
that has ever had any type of oil on
it (including
cooking oils).
Doing so can result in death, explosion,
or fire.
WARNING: To reduce the risk of fire, electric shock, or injury to
persons, read the IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS before
operating this appliance.
The following is a guide to using your washer. Please refer to
specific sections of this manual for more detailed information.
Do not store laundry products on the top surface of this washer.
Vibration is normal during operation.

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.
First Wash Cycle Without Laundry
Before washing clothes for the first time, if not completed
during
the final installation step, choose the Express Wash cycle and run
it without clothes. Use only HE High Efficiency detergent. Use V_
the manufacturer's
recommended
amount for a medium-size
load. This initial cycle serves to ensure the interior is clean before
washing clothes.
For All Wash Cycles
1.
Open the washer door by pulling on the handle. Sort laundry
according to color and type of fabric. Place a load of sorted
clothes in the washer. Do not overload washer. Overloading
can cause poor cleaning.
The washer can be fully loaded, but not tightly packed.
Washer door should close easily.
Mix large and small items. Avoid washing a single item.
Load evenly.
Wash small items such as infant socks in mesh garment
bags. It is recommended
that more than one garment bag
be used and that each garment bag be filled with equal
amounts of material.
When unloading garments, check under the gray colored
seal at the front of the tub for small items.
2.
Close the washer door by pushing it firmly until the lock
clicks. The washer door will remain locked during the wash
cycle.
NOTES:
After any wash cycle is completed, the door must be
opened and then closed before a new cycle can begin.
The door can be opened if STOP is selected while the
ADD CLOTHES light is glowing or if the cycle has been
canceled.
See "To cancel a cycle" in "Changing Cycles, Options,
and Modifiers" section.
3.
Open the dispenser drawer and add laundry products to the
detergent, bleach, fabric softener, or oxygen based stain
fighter/color-safe
bleach compartments.
Close drawer slowly
to avoid spills. See "Using the Dispenser."
Use only "HE" High Efficiency detergent.
