cleaning and maintaining your washing machine

Repairing a frozen washing machine

If the temperature drops below freezing and your washing machine is frozen:

1.Unplug the washing machine.

2.Pour warm water over the tap to loosen the water supply hose.

3.Remove the water supply hose and soak it in warm water.

4.Pour warm water into the washing machine drum and let it sit for 10 minutes.

5.Reconnect the water supply hose to the water tap and check if the water supply and drain are operating normal.

Storing your washing machine

If you need to store your washing machine for an extended time, it’s better to drain and disconnect it. Washing machines can be damaged if water is left in the hoses and internal components before storage.

1.Select the Cotton cycle and add bleach to the bleach compartment. Then, push the Quick Wash button and run your washing machine through the cycle without a load.

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

3.Unplug your washing machine from the electrical outlet, and leave your washing machine door open to allow air to circulate inside the tumbler.

If your washing machine has been stored in below-freezing temperatures, allow time for any leftover water in your washing machine to thaw out before using it.
