Operate your washer only when you are home. If moving, or
not using your washer for a period of time, follow these steps:
1. Unplug or disconnect power to washer.
2. Turn off water supply to washer, to avoid ooding due to
water pressure surge.
WINTER STORAGE CARE
IMPORTANT: To avoid damage, install and store washer
where it will not freeze. Because some water may stay in
hoses, freezing can damage washer. If storing or moving
during freezing weather, winterize your washer.
To winterize washer:
1. Shut off both water faucets; disconnect and drain water
inlet hoses.
2. Put 1 qt. (1 L) of R.V.-type antifreeze in basket and run
washer on RINSE/SPIN cycle for about 30 seconds to
mix antifreeze and remaining water.
3. Unplug washer or disconnect power.

Recommendations to Help Keep Your Washer Clean and
Performing at its Best
1. Always follow the detergent manufacturer’s instructions
regarding the amount of detergent to use. Never use more
than the recommended amount because that may increase
the rate at which detergent and soil residue accumulate
inside your washer, which in turn may result
in undesirable odor.
2. Use warm and hot wash water settings sometimes (not
exclusively cold water washes), because they do a better
job of controlling the rate at which soils and detergent
accumulate.
3. Always leave the washer lid open between uses to help dry
out the washer and prevent the buildup of odor-causing
residue.
