Cold
Weather
Care
If the washer
is delivered
on a
cold day (below freezing),
or is
stored
in an unheated room or
area during the cold months,
do
not attempt
to operate it until the
washer
has had a chance
to
warm up.
Care
Of Your Washer
IMPORTANT:
Before using the
washer
for the first time, wipe out
the inside of the washtub with a
sudsy cloth.
Use only a damp
or sudsy cloth
for cleaning
the control panel.
Some spray prewash
products
may harm
the finish on the control
panel.
Wipe the washer
cabinet as
needed. If detergent,
bleach or
other washing
products are spilled
on the cabinet, wipe immediately.
Some products will cause
permanent
damage if spilled on
the cabinet.
Do not use scouring pads or
abrasive
cleansers.
Do not lay sharp
or
rough objects
on or
against
the
washer.
The
finish could be damaged.
The washtub
will need no
particular
care though it may need
rinsing or wiping
after an unusual
load has been washed. This also
may be necessary
if too little
detergent
has been
used.
!i
Leave the loading door open to
allow the inside of the washer to
dry out after use. This helps
prevent
musty odors from
developing.
Vacations and
Extended
Non-Use
IMPORTANT:
To
avoid
possible
property
damage
due to flooding,
turn off the water supply to the
washer
whenever
there will be an
extended
period
of non-use.
Operating
Tips...
Out-Of-Balance
Switch
The out-of-balance
switch is
located behind the right rear hinge
of the washer
loading door.
A load
of
one or two items can
make the washtub
unbalanced
during
the spin periods.
For the
best spinning
results, the load
must be balanced throughout
the
spin period.
The out-of-balance
switch is
tripped if the load becomes
excessively
unbalanced
during
the spin. Spinning stops when this
happens.
If the
out-of-balance
switch
is
tripped,
you
will need to
rearrange
the load. To do this, push the
timer
knob in, open the loading
door and evenly distribute
the
items in the washtub.
Close the
loading
door, pull the timer knob
out, and the spin will resume.
Motor
Overload
Protector...
This internal overload
protector
will
stop the motor automatically
in the event of an overload.
The
overload
protector will reset itself
in
two or
three
minutes and the
motor will reset automatically.
If
the overload
protector stops the
motor again, remove the washer
from use and call the serviceman
to correct the problem.
