The client offers laundry detergent, which is supplied in liquid or powder kind, to the wash water.

You’re in the right place we’ll show you how to use ge washing machine step-by-step.

How To Use GE Washing Machine

How To Use GE Washing Machine Step-By-Step

Step1.

1. add fabric softener to the fabric softener dispenser.

2. Add the manufacturer’s recommended amount of detergent.

3. Place detergent pods in the bottom of the wash basket before adding clothes.

Sort by color (whites, lights, colors), soil level, fabric type (sturdy cotton, easy-care, delicates), and whether the fabric produces lint (terry cloth, chenille) or collects lint (velveteen, corduroy).

Wash lint producers such as cotton towels and socks separate from lint collectors including synthetic garments and dress pants.

Using too little or too much detergent is a common cause of laundry problems.

Use less detergent if you have soft water, a smaller load, or a lightly soiled load.

For spots, apply pre-treatment to items as recommended on the product label. The application should be made in the basket to prevent overspray which may cause the coloring on the lid or graphics to fade.

GE recommends the use of High-Efficiency detergents such as he in your energy-efficient washer.

 HE detergents are formulated to work with low water wash and rinse systems. HE detergents reduce the overusing problems commonly associated with regular detergents.

When using high-efficiency or concentrated detergents, consult the product label to determine the amount required for optimum performance. Excessive detergent will negatively impact wash performance.

Step2.

Loosely add items around the agitator, overloading may negatively impact wash performance.

Load dry items loosely in the washer basket.

For best results, load items evenly and loosely around the outside of the basket, filling in towards the center on larger loads.

To add items after the washer has started:

1. press Start/Pause if the lid is locked

2. wait until the Lid Lock indicator on the display is no longer illuminated before attempting to open the lid.

3. Lift the lid and submerge additional items around the outside of the basket.

4. Close the lid and press Start to resume.

5. Adjust load size selection and/or use the Deep Fill option if necessary.

  • Do not place large items such as sheets, blankets, and towels across the Infusor (on some models). Load them around the outside of the basket.
  • Do not put lawn or sofa cushions into the washer as they are too big to move. Remove outer covers and ONLY wash them.

Step3. Select wash cycle

1. Start/Pause

  • Press Start to begin the cycle.

NOTE: The lid must be closed for the washer to start the cycle. If the lid is closed, the lid will lock and the Lid Locked light will illuminate.

  • Pressing Pause will unlock the lid (if locked at that time), pause the cycle and the Pause indicator light will blink.

To continue the cycle:

  • Press Start again.

If the machine is paused for more than 24 hours, the cycle will be canceled.

If water remains in the machine:

  • select the Drain & Spin cycle to drain basket and spin water out of the washer basket

2. Cycle Status Lights

Shows whether the washer is in the Fill, Soak, Wash, Rinse, or Spin portion of the cycle.

If an out-of-balance condition is detected by the washer, the Spin light will blink during the remaining portion of the cycle and will stay illuminated for a short time after cycle completion.

When this occurs, the washer is taking action to correct the out-of-balance condition and complete the cycle normally. In some cases, the washer may not be able to balance the load and spin up to full speed.

 If you notice the load is more wet than normal at the end of the cycle, redistribute the load evenly in the wash basket and run a Drain & Spin cycle.

Step4. Settings

Select settings for agitation (Soil) and water temperature (Temp).

NOTE: Longer Spin times typically reduce dryer time/energy usage (i.e. reduces total energy when using both a washer and a dryer).

Step5. Wash Cycles-Cycle Selector Knob

The wash cycle controls the type of washing process. The cycle selector knob can be turned in either direction.

1. Turn the knob after starting a cycle will stop the washer and change the cycle/options to the new selection.

2. Press Start to begin the new cycle selection.

The instructions below will help you match the items to be washed with the best wash cycle settings. For optimal performance, select the cycle that most closely matches the items being washed.

Step6. Cycle Options

1. Stain PreTreat

The Stain PreTreat feature allows you to indicate what stains are on the garments in your load. This feature incorporates a patent-pending treatment method.

Initial water fill is performed at a temperature tailored to the stain type selected and to an amount that enables a concentrated cleaning step.

A stain scrubbing period, followed by an active soak, is conducted to effectively treat the stain. Then additional water is added to the selected temperature and the wash phase is conducted for the cycle selected.

This feature can be applied to most wash cycles as described in the cycling guide.

To use Stain PreTreat:

1. Select the desired wash cycle.

2. Select the stain to be treated under the Stain PreTreat options.

Stain PreTreat Guide:

CategoryRecommended Temperatures Treatment/WashStainFor best results, before placing in the washer:
TomatoCool/WarmSauce Catsup SalsaPretreat with liquid detergent or stain remover product; rinse with cool water
dirtCool/warmDirt Clay mudAllow dirt to dry; remove loose dirt using a brush. Rinse with cool water.
gracesCool/warmGrass Lipstick Chocolate Gravy  Mayonnaise  BBQ SaucePretreat with liquid detergent or stain remover product. Brush lightly; rinse with cold water.

• Recommended temperatures are optimal for stain removal performance; adjust temperature selection to suit the load being washed.

• Ensure stain is completely removed after the wash cycle and before placing in dryer; very tough stains may require a second treatment.

2. Deep Fill

Select the Deep Fill feature for loads where extra water is needed.

  • Press the Deep Fill button once before starting the cycle to add an incremental amount of water to the wash load.
  • Holding the Deep Fill button for 3 seconds will provide the deepest fill level possible.

this will increase cycle time due to the additional time it takes to fill the washer.

To cancel the option if desired:

  • press the Deep Fill button again.

NOTE: The Deep Fill button can also be pressed after the washer has completed filling and is in the wash phase if additional water is desired. To stop the extra fill, press the Deep Fill button again and the water will stop.

3. Auto Soak

This option begins with a brief agitation, soaks for a specified time, then moves through the rest of the cycle automatically.

4. 2nd Rinse

When you use extra detergent or bleach to clean heavily soiled clothes, use the 2nd Rinse option to better remove additional residues.

5. Extra Spin

Select to provide additional spin time, increasing energy efficiency through reducing drying times.

6. 2nd Rinse + Extra Spin

Provides both a second rinse and an extra spin.

7. Deep Rinse

 Set this option to provide a deep rinse or when using fabric softener. This option may change other settings (e.g. Spin may go to a higher setting) to maximize performance.
