Instructions for washers are available online. Manufacturers offer instruction manuals on their websites for download, and third-party manual databases such as Manuals Online include instructions for washers.
Maytag and Whirlpool both maintain searchable databases of their instructions. Consumers access these manuals by searching the washer's model number. Both sites include tips on how to locate the product's model number if customers do not already know it.
Manuals Online also sorts its instructions by model number, but its database can be browsed as well as searched. Members of the Manuals Online community contribute instructions for models not listed on the site.
