Starting Your Washer
The following is a guide to using your washer. Please refer to
specific sections of this manual for more detailed information.
Do not store laundry products on the top surface of this washer.
Vibration is normal during operation.
First Wash Cycle Without Laundry
Before washing clothes for the first time, choose NORMAL/
CASUAL cycle and run it without clothes. After installation, if a
complete cycle has not been run without clothes, use
normal recommended amount of powdered or liquid High
Efficiency (HE) detergent or ¼ the normal recommended amount
of regular powdered or liquid detergent. This initial cycle serves
to ensure the interior is clean before washing clothes.
1. To load washer
Open the washer door by pulling on the handle.
Sort laundry according to color and type of fabric. Place a
load of sorted clothes in the washer. Do not overload washer.
Overloading can cause poor cleaning.
The washer can be fully loaded, but not tightly packed.
Washer door should close easily.
Mix large and small items. Load evenly.
It is recommended that you wash small items such as
infant socks in a mesh garment bag.
When unloading garments, occasionally check under the
rubber rim at the front of the tub for small items.
2. Close the washer door by pushing it firmly until the lock
clicks. The washer door will remain locked during the wash
NOTE: After any wash cycle is completed, the door must be
opened and then closed before a new cycle can begin. The
door can be opened only if PAUSE/CANCEL is selected while
the ADD A GARMENT light is glowing or if the cycle has been
cancelled. See “To Cancel a Cycle.”
3. Open the Dispenser Drawer and add laundry products to the
detergent, bleach, or fabric softener compartments. Close
drawer slowly to avoid spills. See “Using the Dispenser.”
NOTE: For best performance, use High Effficiency detergents.
The package for this type of detergent will be marked “HE” or
“High Efficiency.” The wash action along with less water could
create too much sudsing with a regular detergent.
4. Turn on the washer by selecting one of the wash cycles. The
indicator light for the selected cycle will glow. When selecting
a wash cycle, the preset cycle, Water Temp, Spin Speed, and
soil level for the selected cycle will glow. The display shows

recommended fabric care for the selected cycle. See

COMPLETE status light glows, the door unlocks, and the
wash load can be removed from the washer. The washer
powers down automatically 5 minutes after the cycle is
complete. To power down the washer manually after the
wash cycle is complete, select PAUSE/CANCEL once.
