BASIC LOCATION REQUIREMENTS:
ELECTRICAL
•
•
•
120 Volt 60 Hz 15 AMP Fuse or Circuit Breaker
Individual branch circuit serving only the washer is recommended.
The washer is equipped with a power cord.
NEVER USE AN EXTENSION CORD.
GROUNDING
ELECTRICAL GROUND IS REQUIRED ON THIS APPLIANCE.
Appliance is equipped with a power cord having a 3-prong grounding plug for use in a properly installed and
grounded outlet.
! WARNING
•
Improper connection of the equipment-grounding conductor can result in a risk of electrical
shock. Check with a qualified electrician or serviceman if you are in doubt as to whether
the appliance is properly grounded. Do not modify the plug provided with the appliance – if
it will not fit the outlet, have a proper outlet installed by a qualified electrician.
IMPORTANT SAFETY PRECAUTIONS
•
To prevent unnecessary risk of fire, electrical shock or personal injury, all wiring and
grounding must be done in accordance with the National Electrical Code ANSI/FNPA, No.
70-Latest Revision and local codes and ordinances. It is the personal responsibility and obligation of the appliance owner to provide adequate electrical service for this appliance.
ADDITIONAL GROUNDING CONNECTIONS
A grounding kit (Part No. 12001875) is available. It contains the ground wire,
clamp, ground screw and washer. Connect the ground wire to back of unit
with the cabinet ground screw and washer. Secure the other end of ground
wire to a grounded COLD metal water pipe.
NEVER CONNECT GROUND WIRE TO PLASTIC PLUMBING LINES, GAS LINES OR HOT WATER
PIPES.
WATER
To correctly fill the washer in the proper amount of time, Water pressure of 20 to 120 p.s.i. is required.
Water pressure less than 20 psi may cause a failure in the water valve and may not allow the water
valve to shut off completely. Or may extend the fill time beyond what the washer controls will normally
allow and result in the washer turning off. A time limit is built into the controls in the event of an
internal hose becoming loose and avoids a flooded home.
The water valve Hot and Cold water faucets must be within 4 feet of the back of the washer for inlet
hoses provided with the washer. NOTE: Accessory inlet hoses are available in various lengths up to
10 feet for faucets more than 4 feet from the back of the washer.

To Avoid The Possibility Of Water Damage:
•
•
Have Water Faucets Easily Accessible
Turn Off Faucets When Washer Is Not In Use.
DRAIN FACILITY
Recommended height of the standpipe is 18”. The drain hose must be routed through the drain hose clip to
the standpipe. Standpipe must be large enough to accept the outside diameter of the drain hose. The drain
hose is attached at the factory.
FLOORING
For best performance the washer must be installed on a solidly constructed floor. Wood floors may need to
be reinforced to minimize vibration and/or unbalanced load situations. Carpeting and soft tile surfaces are
contributing factors in vibration and/or tendency for a washer to move slightly during the spin cycle. Never
install the washer on a platform or weakly supported structure.
LOCATION CONSIDERATIONS
It is recommended the washer never be installed in areas where water may freeze since the washer will
always maintain some water in the water valve, pump and hose areas. This can cause damage to belts,
pump, hoses and other components. Operating temperature should be above 60°F.

If drain standpipe is in excess of 10 feet above floor level, a pump
accessory kit (Part #12001674) may need to be installed.
NOTE: Caution must always be exercised to avoid collapsing or
damaging the drain hose. For best performance the drain hose
should not be restricted in any way, through elbows, couplings or
excessive lengths.
For installations where the drain hose cannot be conveniently
elevated to at least 18”, the drain hose must be supported.

Accessory inlet hoses are available in various lengths up to 10
feet.
4. Plug power cord into a grounded 120 volt 60 Hz approved
electrical service protected by a 15-amp fuse or comparable circuit
breaker. This washer is grounded through the third prong of the
power cord when plugged into a three prong grounded receptacle.
5. Slide washer into position.
6. Level washer by turning the leveling legs in or out as necessary
by hand. When the washer is level, tighten the leveling leg lock
nuts up against the base of the washer using the wrench
supplied with the washer. NOTE: The washer must be leveled
on all 4 sides. A carpenter’s level should be used on all 4
corners of the washer. It’s a good idea after the first dozen
washes to recheck the levelness of the washer.

If installing under a counter:
Carefully move the washer in front of it’s final location. Adjust the rear leveling legs to the
required height and level the washer across the back of the washer. Tighten the leveling
locking nuts up against the bottom of the washer base with the wrench. Adjust the front
leveling legs to level the washer in respect to the rear leveling legs. Gently lift up on the front
of the washer and slide back into the recess.
With the washer in its final position, place a level along the top edge of the washer. (no rocking
of the washer should exist). Adjust the front leveling legs up or down to ensure the washer is
resting solid. Turn the lock nuts on each leg up towards the base of the washer and snug with
a wrench.
NOTE: Keep the leg extension at a minimum to prevent excessive vibration.
The farther out the legs are extended the more the washer will vibrate and
possibly walk.
