Before you start: remove shipping materials

It is necessary to remove all shipping materials for proper operation and to avoid excessive noise from washer.

nA 120 volt, 60 Hz., AC only, 15or 20-amp, fused electrical supply is required. A time-delay fuse or circuit breaker is recommended. It is recommended that a separate circuit breaker serving only this appliance be provided.

nThis washer is equipped with a power supply cord having a 3 prong grounding plug.

nTo minimize possible shock hazard, the cord must be plugged into a mating, 3 prong, grounding-type outlet, grounded in accordance with local codes and ordinances. If a mating outlet is not available, it is the personal responsibility and obligation of the customer to have the properly grounded outlet installed by a qualified electrician.

nIf codes permit and a separate ground wire is used, it is recommended that a qualified electrician determine that the ground path is adequate.

nDo not ground to a gas pipe.

nCheck with a qualified electrician if you are not sure the washer is properly grounded.

nDo not have a fuse in the neutral or ground circuit.
