SECTION 1. GENERAL INFORMATION
WASHER PRE-INSTALLATION
REQUIREMENTS
NOTE: Proper installation
sibility of the purchaser,
•
Do not store or operate washer in tern
peratures below freezing. This can ¢aus_
damage to the pump, hoses and othe
is the respon-
components. (See page 1-5 for long ten
storage.)
Checkpoints for proper installation:
Water pressure of 20 - 120 P.S.I.is require
to fill the washer in the appropriate tim
frame. Pressuresof less than 20 P.S.I.m_
Properly grounded electrical cutlet is required. Use 15 amp fuse or comparable
circuit breaker for electrical service,
•
Standpipe Drain System must be able to
accept 1½" O.D. drain hose. In cases
where an airtight connectionis required, an
anti-siphoning
valve, part number
12001586,shouldbeplacedinthe drainhose
to prevent siphoningfrom the washer or facilityduringagitation.Standpipeheightof 36"
is recommended,
NOTE: If drain standpipe is in excess of 5 feet
above floor level, install pump accessory kit,
These units are not equippedwith a siphon
break, and the drain hose must be elevated
to a minimum height of 36", For installations with short standpipes, the drain hose
must be supported by clipping the drain
hose into the clip on the back of the
washer. Then a coupler and additional
hose lenghth is added to the eXisting
drain hose.
•
•
Best performance is obtained with tl
washer installed on a solid floor. Wo_
floor constructions may need to be re:
forced to minimize vibration from unb
anted load situations. Carpets and s
tile surfaces are also contributing fact_
in vibration and/or movement during 1
spin cycle, Never install washer on pl
form or weak support structure.

•
cause an extended or exceptionally lot
fill time. Refer to the troubleshooting se
tion for more information regarding a s
lution for slow fill situations.
Hot and Cold water faucets should be
within four (4) feet of the back of the
washer. This allows for quick access for
immediate shut off of the water.
1. Provide an individual 120 volt,
60 HZ, branch circuit with ground f¢
the washer. This circuit must be
rated for 15 amperes or more.
2. Protect the washer's electrical circu
with a 15 ampere time delay fuse c
circuit breaker.
3. Install in accordance with National
Electrical Code and all local codes
and ordinances.
GROUNDING INSTRUCTIONS
•
Water heater should be set to deliver a
minimum of 120° (49°C) hot water to the
washer,
The washer must be grounded. In the
event of a malfunction or breakdown,
16009485

grounding will reduce the risk of electrical
shock by providing a path of least resistance for electrical current,
The washer is equipped with a power
supply cord which has a grounding
conductor and three-prong grounding
plug. For proper grounding, the threeprong grounding plug must be plugged
into an appropriate three-prong
grounded receptacle or outlet (see the
following figure). The receptacle must
be properly installed and grounded in
accordance with the National Electrical
Code and all local codes and ordinances.
WARNING: Improper connection of the
grounding conductor or the three-prong
grounding plug of the power supply cord
cord may result in an electrical shock
hazard, ff there is any doubt as to whetherthe washeris properly grounded, have
the installation checked by a qualified
electrician.
DO NOT MODIFY THE PLUG PROVIDED
WITH THE WASHER - If the plug will not
fit the outlet, have a proper outlet installed
by a qualified technician.
WARNING: For your
safety and to protect
the test equipment,
be sure that the wall

• Turn off hot and cold water faucets.
• Disconnect both water inlet hoses at
the faucets. Lower them to the floor.
• With the service cord connected to
the electrical outlet, rotate the timer to
the normal start or fill position and
pull timer knob to start washer. Turn
water temperature selector switch to
warm.
• When water stops draining from the
hoses, disconnect service cord.
• Lower the drain hose to the floor and
allow it to drain into a floor drain or
shallow pan.
In below-freezing temperatures, ice may form
in the "fill" flume and the pump. Raise the
room temperature and allow time for the ice
to melt before using the washer.
