Storing the Washer

Washers can be damaged if water is not removed from hoses and internal components before storage.

Prepare your washer for storage as follows:

  1. Select the Quick Wash cycle and add bleach to the automatic dispenser. Run your washer through the cycle without a load.

  2. Turn the water faucets off and disconnect the inlet hoses.

  3. Unplug your washer from the electrical outlet and leave your washer lid open to let air circulate inside the tub. If your washer has been stored in below–freezing temperatures, allow time for any leftover water in your washer to thaw out before use.
