Using Laundry Product Dispensers

NOTE: Do not add single-dose laundry packets, color-safe
bleach, Oxi-type boosters, or fabric softener crystals to
dispensers. They will not dispense correctly. Add to the basket
prior to adding laundry.

Add HE detergent

HE removable
detergent tray
Add a measured amount of HE
detergent into detergent tray. This
tray holds 3 oz. (89 mL). If adding
powder HE detergent remove inside tray. Do not overfill tray
– adding too much detergent may cause detergent to be
dispensed into the washer too early.
NOTE: Make sure tray is in drawer when using liquid detergent
and removed when using powder detergent. Do not go over the
Max line.
IMPORTANT: Use only High Efficiency detergents. The
package will be marked "HE" or "High Efficiency." Low-water
washing creates excessive sudsing with a regular non-HE
detergent. Using regular detergent will likely result in 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.
HELPFUL TIP: See "Washer Maintenance" for information
on recommended method of cleaning washer dispenser trays.
Add liquid chlorine bleach
to dispenser
Chlorine Bleach
Do not overfill, dilute, or use more than 1 cup (250 mL).
Do not use color-safe bleach or Oxi products in the same
cycle with liquid chlorine bleach.
Add liquid fabric softener
Fabric softener tray
Pour a measured amount of liquid fabric softener into tray;
always follow manufacturer's directions for correct amount
of fabric softener based on your load size. Close dispenser
drawer. Fabric Softener is added during rinse.
IMPORTANT: Do not overfill or dilute. Overfilling dispenser
will cause fabric softener to immediately dispense into
If Extra Rinse option is selected, fabric softener will be
dispensed into the last rinse.
It is normal for a small amount of water to remain in the
dispenser at the end of a cycle.
