Getting Started in 5 Easy Steps:
Load the Washer:
Raise the lid and place a load of sorted clothes in the washer. Load evenly to maintain washer balance and
do not load above the stainless steel basket. Overloading can cause poor cleaning since items need to move
easily through the wash water.
Fill the Dispensers:
You can fill all dispensers prior to starting the wash cycle. The Cabrio TM washer dilutes and releases them
automatically at the proper time during the cycle. Pour measured powdered or liquid High Efficiency _
detergent into the detergent dispenser (1). Use only High Efficiency (HE) detergents. Do not put
detergent directly onto clothes. Then add bleach and measured liquid fabric softener into the marked
dispensers (2 & 3). Add color-safe bleach (powdered or liquid) to the detergent dispenser.
NOTE: Be sure to match powdered color-safe bleach with powdered detergent or use liquid color-safe bleach
with liquid detergent.
Select the Wash Cycle:
Press POWER to turn on the electronic display and select a wash cycle using the center dial. Modifiers and
options are already preset for optimal wash performance but may be adjusted prior to starting the cycle (in
most cases). For a complete description of options and modifiers, please see the other side of this Quick Start
Begin the Wash Cycle:
Press START. The lid will lock, and the wash cycle will begin. The display will show the estimated time
NOTE: If you do not press START within 5 minutes of pressing POWER, the washer will automatically shut off.
Add-A-Garment, if needed:
You can place additional clothing in the washer when the "Add a garment" status light is glowing. Press
PAUSE/CANCEL once and wait for the Lid Lock light to turn off. Open the lid and add items. To restart the
washer, close the washer lid and press START.
