Step 3: 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 maximum hot water temperature is 125° Fahrenheit

(51o 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.

WARNING

To prevent personal injury, avoid contact with inlet water temperatures higher than 125° Fahrenheit (51° Celsius) and hot surfaces.

W748

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 5. 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 6.

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.

IMPORTANT: Hoses and other natural rubber parts deteriorate after extended use. Hoses may develop cracks, blisters or material wear from the temperature and constant high pressure they are subject to.

All hoses should be checked on a monthly basis for any visible signs of deterioration. Any hose showing the signs of deterioration listed above should be replaced immediately. All hoses should be replaced every five years.

IMPORTANT: Turn off water supply faucets after check-outand demonstration. Owner should turn off water supply whenever there will be an extended period ofnon-use.

NOTE: Longer fill hoses are available (as optional equipment at extra cost) if the hoses supplied with the washer are not long enough for the installation. Order hoses as follows:

No. 20617 Fill Hose (8 feet) (2.44 m) No. 20618 Fill Hose (10 feet) (3.05 m)

Risers

Risers (or air cushions) may have to be installed if the pipes knock or pound when flow of water stops. The risers are more efficient when installed as close as possible to the water supply faucets (refer to Figure 7).

Step 4: Connect Drain Hose to Drain Receptacle

Remove the drain hose from its shipping position on the rear of the washer by unhooking the hose from the retainer clamp and by removing the shipping tape.

Install the drain hose into the drain receptacle (standpipe, wall or laundry tub) following the instructions below.

IMPORTANT: Drain receptacle must be capable of handling a minimum of 1-1/4inch (32 cm) outside diameter drain hose.

Standpipe Installation:

Place the drain hose into the standpipe.

Remove the beaded strap from accessories bag and place around standpipe and drain hose and tighten strap to hold hose to standpipe. Refer to Figure 8. This will prevent the drain hose from dislodging from drain receptacle during use.
