Electrical Shock Hazard

Plug into a grounded 3 prong outlet.
Do not remove ground prong.
Do not use an adapter.
Do not use an extension cord.
Failure to follow these instructions can result in death, 
fire, or electrical shock.


•  Empty pockets. Loose change, buttons, or any small object  

can pass under the agitator and become trapped, causing 

unexpected sounds.

•  Sort items by recommended cycle, water temperature,  

and colorfastness. 

•  Separate heavily soiled items from lightly soiled. 
•  Separate delicate items from sturdy fabrics. 
•  Do not dry garments if stains remain after washing, because 

heat can set stains into fabric.

•  Treat stains promptly. 
•  Close zippers, fasten hooks, tie strings and sashes, and  

remove non-washable trim and ornaments.

•  Mend rips and tears to avoid further damage to items  

during washing.

Helpful Tips: 
•  When washing water-proof or water-resistant items, load 


•  Use mesh garment bags to help avoid tangling when washing 

delicate or small items.

•  Turn knits inside out to avoid pilling. Separate lint-takers from 

lint-givers. Synthetics, knits, and corduroy fabrics will pick up 

lint from towels, rugs, and chenille fabrics.

NOTE: Always read and follow fabric care label instructions to 

avoid damage to your garments.
