Washing Procedures

WARNING
To reduce the risk of fi re, electric shock or injury to
persons, read these IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
in this Use and Care Guide before operating your washer.
1 Sort laundry into loads
that can be washed
together.
• Sort items
by recommended
cycle and water temperature.
• Separate white, light and colorfast items from dark
and non-colorfast items.
• Separate items that shed lint from items that attract
lint. Casual, synthetic, knit, and corduroy items will
pick up lint from towels, rugs, and bedspreads.
• Separate heavily soiled items from lightly soiled
items.
• Separate lacy, sheer, loosely knit, or delicate items
from durable items.
• Do not machine wash items containing fi berglass.
Small particles of fi berglass left in the drum may
transfer to fabrics in other loads and cause skin ir-
ritation and/or damage to fabrics.
2 Prepare items for washing.
• Empty pockets.
• Brush off lint and dirt. Shake out rugs and beach
towels.
• Close zippers, fasten hooks, button buttons, tie strings
and sashes, and remove non-washable trims and
ornaments.
• Mend rips and tears to prevent further damage dur-
ing washing.
• Turn knit items inside out to prevent pilling.
Washer Operating Instructions
• Place delicate and small items such as bras, ho-
siery and baby socks in a mesh
bag.

moval instructions.
