Installation

Step 1: Position Unit Near Installation

Area

Move unit as close to the desired area of installation as possible.

WARNING

Washer and dryer are not designed to be operated as separated, side-by-sideunits.

W187

NOTE: For best performance and to minimize vibration or movement, install washer on a solid, sturdy and level floor. Some floors may need to be reinforced, especially on a second floor or over a basement. Do not install the washer on carpeting, soft tile, a platform or other weakly supported structures.

Step 2: Connect Fill Hoses

WARNING

Under certain conditions, hydrogen gas may be produced in a hot water system that has not been used for two weeks or more. HYDROGEN GAS IS EXPLOSIVE. If the hot water system has not been used for such a period and before using the washer, turn on all hot water faucets and let the water flow from each for several minutes. This will release any accumulated hydrogen gas. The gas is flammable. Do not smoke or use an open flame during this time.

W029

Water Supply

Water supply faucets must fit standard 3/4 inch (19.1 mm) female garden hose couplings. DO NOT USE SLIP-ONORCLAMP-ONCONNECTIONS.

Water supply faucets should be readily accessible to permit turning them off when washer is not being used.

Recommended cold water temperature is 60o to 80o Fahrenheit (16o to 27o Celsius). Recommended hot water temperature is 120o to 140o Fahrenheit (49o to 60o Celsius). Warm water is a mixture of hot

and cold water. Warm water temperature is dependent upon water temperature and pressure of both the hot and cold water supply lines.

Water pressure must be a minimum of 20 to a maximum of 120 pounds per square inch (138 to 827 kPa) static pressure measured at the faucet.

NOTE: Water pressure under 20 pounds per square inch (138 kPa) will cause an extended fill time in the washer and may not properly flush out the detergent dispenser.

Turn on the water faucets and flush the lines for approximately two minutes to remove any foreign material that could clog the screens in the water mixing valve.

NOTE: When installing in newly constructed or renovated buildings, it is very important to flush the lines since build-upmay have occurred during construction.

Connecting Hoses

Remove the two plain rubber washers and two filter screens from the accessories bag. Install them into each end of the fill hoses as shown in Figure 2. The screen must be facing outward.

Screw hose couplings with the filter screens onto the water faucets until they are finger-tight.Then, using a pliers, screw approximately 1/4 turn.

Screw hose couplings from other end of hoses onto the water mixing valve until they are finger-tight.Then, using a pliers, screw approximately 1/4 turn. Refer to

Figure 3.

IMPORTANT: Do not cross thread or overtighten couplings. This will cause them to leak.

Turn water on and check for leaks. If leaks are found, turn off the water, unscrew hoses and reinstall them until there are no leaks.

IMPORTANT: Turn off water supply whenever there will be an extended period of non-use.
