Load the Top Load Washer

Washing clothes has changed some since we were kids. This is a quick overview of how to use your shiny new top load washer.

Load Your Washer

When it comes to loading clothes into the washer, do your best to sort and wash items by fabric type and color to ensure best performance. The Eco Plus option sets the temperature of the water slightly lower than the typical wash cycle, and extends the wash time to reduce energy consumption but maintain the quality of a wash.  

  • Fill the tub with dry, unfolded clothes evenly around in order to enhance washing efficiency and prevent excess wear or wrinkling.

  • Wash delicate items such as bras, hosiery, and other lingerie the Delicates cycle with similar lightweight items.

  • When washing smaller items that don't fill the tub completely - a rug, a pillow, stuffed toys, or one or two sweater, for example - add a few towels to improve spin performance.

  • Use the Bedding cycle to was bulky items.

  • When washing heavily soiled loads, do not overload your washer to ensure good cleaning results.

Note: During the spin cycle, the washer may add additional water to redistribute the clothes and correct an imbalance inside the drum.

Add Items

  1. Press the Start/Pause button to pause the washer.

  2. Wait for the door to unlock automatically, and then open the door.

  3. Add the item, close the door, and then press the Start/Pause button. The cycle will then resume.
