Using the Detergent Drawer on the Washer (WF45K6200)

Your washer has separate compartments for dispensing detergent, color-safe bleach, and fabric softener. Add all laundry additives to their respective compartments before starting your washer.

Detergent Drawer Guideline

  • A: Prewash Compartment

  • B: Main Wash Compartment

  • C: Softener Compartment

  • D: Bleach Compartment

Adding the Washing Agents into the Detergent Drawer

  1. Slide open the detergent drawer and then add liquid laundry detergent to the liquid detergent container in the main wash compartment. 

    Make sure that the detergent does not exceed the marked max line.

  2. To use powdered detergent, remove the provided liquid detergent container from the main wash compartment and then add powdered detergent to the main wash compartment.

    • Do not exceed the max line.
    • Powdered fabric softener is not recommended.
    • Use liquid fabric softener only.

  3. Add fabric softener to the softener compartment.

  4. To use the prewash feature, add detergent to the prewash compartment.

    If you use an HE (High efficiency) detergent, apply 1/3 of the recommended amount to the prewash compartment and 2/3 of the recommended amount to the main wash compartment.

    Do not use the prewash option if you will be adding detergent manually to the tub.

  5. If you are using chlorine, add liquid chlorine bleach only into the bleach compartment. 

    • Do not exceed the max line.
    • Do not add undiluted liquid chlorine bleach directly to the load or to the tub.
