(For a complete list of brands we service click here.)

1. Seperate your clothes by colors.

2. Don’t overfill your machine.

3. Most importantly! Use 1/4 of a cap of HE Detergent! Too much leads to soap residue in clothes & the washer. Due to the low amount of water used for each cycle any other detergents will not work properly.

4. Perform a maintenance cycle at least once a month. All high efficiency models include specific maintenance instructions. If your high efficiency washer doesn’t include a maintenance cycle option you can manually run your own.

5. Never leave a wash load in the washer overnight, try your best to remove laundry promptly after the cycle is complete.

6. After a cycle is complete leave the door open to let the washer air out.

Caring For Your Sub Zero

Caring For Your Sub Zero

Raynor appliance services recommends when caring for your sub zero Sub Zero machine you observe the following:
1) Use a soft, non-abrasive cloth
2) Stainless steel cleaner only
3) Gently appy with cloth, keeping constant contact with machine, working in the cleaner with an up and down motion.

When cleaning the classic and platinum stainless steel finish, always use a soft nonabrasive stainless steel cleaner with a 100% lint-free cloth. On carbon stainless steel finishes you can use mild soap and water. For best results keep cloth in continuous contact with the stainless steel.

Caring for your sub zero is made easy because the machine monitors itself and will let you know if there is a problem. All sub zero units have the control center located in the refrigerator section, excluding the 601F model which keeps the unit in its freezer section. Another great reason caring for your sub zero is easy, would be the alarm feature which sounds off after the door is left open for over 30 seconds. If you are planning on taking a short vacation just simply remove all perishable items, shut off the ice maker and empty the ice bucket. For extended vacations it is best to remove all items, unplug the unit and leave the doors slightly open to keep interior dry and smelling fresh.
