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.
1. Drop a load of sorted clothes loosely into the washer.
Load evenly to maintain washer balance. Mix large and
small items. Items should move easily through the wash
water. Overloading can cause poor cleaning.
2. Style 1: Without Detergent Dispenser (on some models)
Measure detergent and pour it into the washer. If desired,
add powdered or liquid color safe bleach.
Style 2: With Detergent Dispenser (on some models)
Pour measured powdered or liquid detergent into the
detergent dispenser (on some models).
Detergent Dispenser
3. (OPTIONAL) Add Liquid Chlorine Bleach.
NOTE: Follow the manufacturer's directions for safe use.
Undiluted bleach will damage any fabric it touches. The
damage appears as rips, holes, tears, or color loss and may
not show up until several washings later. To avoid spilling, use
a cup with a pouring spout. Do not let bleach splash, drip, or
run down into the washer basket. Always measure liquid
chlorine bleach. Do not guess. Never use more than the
manufacturer's recommended amount for a full load. Use less
with a smaller load size.
Style 1: Without Chlorine Bleach Dispenser (on some models)
Let the washer fill and begin agitating the load.
Add bleach 5 minutes into the wash cycle for best
cleaning and so that bleach can be removed in the rinse
cycle. Pour bleach around the agitator, not directly onto
the load.

4. (OPTIONAL) Add Liquid Fabric Softener.
NOTE: Do not spill or drip any fabric softener onto the clothes.

some items (diapers and towels) nonabsorbent. If this
happens, do not use it in every load, or use less of it in each
