Care and Cleaning

Clean lint screen after every load.
Wash lint screen occasionally.
Use care with laundry
products. They can damage finish on
the laundry center.
To reduce risk of fire or serious injury to persons or property, comply
with the basic warnings listed in Important Safety Instructions and those listed
below.
Before cleaning the washer or dryer interior, unplug the electrical power cord
to avoid electrical shock hazards.
Do not use any type spray cleanser when cleaning dryer interior. Hazardous
fumes or electrical shock could occur.
Inside the Washer
Remove items from the washer as soon as the cycle ends. Excess wrinkling, color
transfer, and odors may develop in items left in the washer.
Dry the washer top, the area around the lid opening, and the underside of the
lid. These areas should always be dry before the lid is closed.
Before cleaning the washer interior, unplug the electrical power cord to avoid
electrical shock hazards.
When extremely soiled items have been washed, a dirty residue may remain on
the tub. Remove this by wiping the tub with a nonabrasive household cleanser.
Rinse thoroughly with water.
The agitator or tub may become stained from fabric dye. Clean these parts with
a nonabrasive household cleanser. This prevents dye transfer to future loads.
Inside the Dryer
Clean the dryer lint screen after every load. Lint build-up in the screen restricts
air flow, which causes longer drying times. The screen is located at the bottom
of the door opening. Remove by pulling straight up. Remove the lint and replace
the screen.
Occasionally a waxy build-up may form on the lint screen from using dryer-added
fabric softener sheets. To remove this build-up, wash the lint screen in warm,
soapy water. Dry thoroughly and replace. Do not operate the dryer without the
lint screen in place.
If the dryer drum becomes stained from noncolorfast fabrics, clean the drum with
a damp cloth and a mild liquid household cleanser. Remove cleanser residue
before drying the next load.
Every 18 months a Sears or other qualified service dealer should clean the
dryer cabinet interior and exhaust duct. These areas can collect lint and dust
over time. An excessive amount of lint build-up could result in inefficient drying
and possible fire hazard.
Outside
When laundering is completed, wipe cabinet with a damp cloth. Turn water
faucets off to prevent pressure build-up in the hoses.
Clean the cabinet with mild soap and water. Never use harsh, gritty or
abrasive cleansers. If the cabinet becomes stained, clean with diluted chlorine
bleach [1/2 cup (120 ml) in 1 quart (.95 L) water]. Rinse several times with clear
water.
Remove glue residue from tape or labels with a mixture of warm water and mild
detergent. Or, touch residue with the sticky side of the tape or label.
Before moving the laundry center, place a strip of cardboard or thin fiberboard
under the front leveling legs to prevent floor damage.
