Important Safety Information

READ AND FOLLOW ALL SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS

SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS

GROUNDING INSTRUCTIONS

WARNING: To reduce the risk of fire, electric shock or injury to persons when using this appliance, follow basic safety precautions, including the following:

Do not wash articles that have been previously cleaned in, washed in, soaked in or spotted with gasoline, dry-cleaning solvents or other

fl ammable or explosive substances as they give off vapors that could ignite or explode.

Do not add gasoline, dry-cleaning solvents or other fl ammable or explosive substances to the wash water as they give off vapors that could ignite or explode.

Under certain conditions, hydrogen gas may be produced in a hot water system that has not been used for 2 weeks or more. HYDROGEN GAS IS EXPLOSIVE. If the hot water system has not been used for such a period, turn on all hot water faucets and let the water fl ow for several minutes before using the washing machine. This will release any accumulated hydrogen gas. Do not smoke or use an open fl ame during this process.

Do not reach into the appliance if the tub or agitator is moving.

Do not install or store this appliance where it will be exposed to the weather.

Do not tamper with the controls.

Do not repair or replace any part of the appliance or attempt any servicing unless specifically recommended in the user maintenance instructions or in published user repair instructions that you understand and have the skills to carry out.

Do not operate the appliance when the water pressure is lower than 14 PSI or higher than 70 PSI to avoid damage to the inlet system.

This appliance is not intended for use by persons (including children) whose physical, sensory or mental capabilities may be different or reduced, or who lack experience or knowledge, unless such persons receive supervision or training to operate the appliance by a person responsible for their safety.

This appliance must be grounded. Grounding reduces the risk of electrical shock by providing an escape wire for the electrical current.

This appliance has a cord that has a grounding wire with a 3-prong plug. The power cord must be plugged into an outlet that is properly grounded. If the outlet is a 2-prong wall outlet, it must be replaced with a properly grounded 3-prong wall outlet. The serial rating plate indicates the voltage and frequency the appliance is designed for.

WARNING - Improper use of the grounding plug can result in a risk of electric shock. Consult a qualified electrician or service agent if the grounding instructions are not completely understood, or if doubt exists as to whether the appliance is properly grounded.

Do not connect your appliance to extension cords or together with another appliance in the same wall outlet. Do not splice the power cord. Do not under any circumstances cut or remove the third ground prong from the power cord. Do not use extension cords or ungrounded (two prongs) adapters.

If the power supply cord is damaged, it must be replaced by the manufacturer, its service agent or similar qualified person in order to avoid hazard.

Any questions concerning power or grounding should be directed toward a certified electrician.

DANGER: Risk of child entrapment. Children must be supervised around this appliance. Ensure that the lid is removed before discarding this appliance.

NOISE PROOF PLATE INSTALLATION

The noise proof plate will help to muffl e excessive noise from the appliance during agitation. Follow the steps below to install the noise proof plate.

1.Remove the noise proof plate from the packaging. It will be shipped on top of the appliance at the top of the box.

2.Slide the noise proof plate into the channel in the base of the appliance and secure with the provided screw.

WATER SUPPLY

The water supply faucet must fit standard 3/4” (19.05 mm) female garden hose couplings. Do not use slip-on or clamp-on connections as the water pressure may cause them to leak.

Tighten all connections by hand until they are snug and then tighten them another quarter turn with a wrench to ensure they are secure.

Check all connections for leaks before using the appliance. If leaks are detected, it may be

necessary to add a rubber washer or Tefl on tape to the connection.

The water inlet hose should always be connected to a cold water supply.

Using the quick connect assembly

The quick connect assembly can be used to connect the appliance to a kitchen or bathroom faucet to provide water to the appliance.

INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS

Connecting the quick connect to the water supply

Remove the aerator from the faucet before attaching the faucet adapter.

Pull down on the locking collar and pull up on the faucet adapter to remove the adapter from the assembly and then install the adapter on the faucet.

Turn on the faucet to check for leaks at the connection before continuing. If leaks are present, it may be necessary to wrap the faucet adapter or the faucet with Tefl on tape before connecting the adapter to the faucet.

Pull down on the locking collar and push the quick connect assembly onto the bottom of the faucet adapter. Release the locking collar to attach the quick connect to the faucet.

Attach one end of the water inlet hose to the quick connect assembly. Place the other end of the hose in the sink and turn on the water supply to clear the hose of any dust. When the water runs clear, turn off the water supply and connect the hose to the water inlet connection on the top of the appliance.

DRAIN HOSE INSTALLATION

The drain hose will arrive pre-attached to the appliance. During operation of the appliance, the drain hose should be directed toward a sink or drain to catch the discarded water as it exits the appliance.

When running the drain hose to a drain, ensure that there are no bends in the hose as this can cause a blockage and impede the drain function.

The drain hose can be directed upward toward a sink or bucket but ensure that the hose does not rise more than 100 cm (39 in) from the ground as this can impact the drain function.

CARE & MAINTENANCE

CLEANING

VINEGAR RINSE

Before performing any cleaning or maintenance, ensure that the water inlet hose has been disconnected and that the power cord has been unplugged.

Clean the outside of the appliance with a warm, damp cloth. Avoid using detergents or chemicals as this can damage or discolor the cabinet.

A rinse of vinegar and water can be run through the washing machine to remove any stains on the inner tub or any lingering odors.

Place 1/2 cup of vinegar in the washing machine and choose the highest water level. Allow the appliance to run a full wash program with no laundry to remove stains and odors.

LINT FILTER

The lint filter is on the interior of the wash tub and should be cleaned approximately every 10 cycles. Remove the lint filter from the tub, open it and remove any lint that has accumulated. It can be rinsed under cold water but do not use detergents or chemicals. Ensure that the lint filter is replaced in the

appliance before beginning a new program.
