Important Safety Information
To reduce the risk of fire, electric shock, serious injury
or death to persons when using your washer, follow
these basic precautions:
• Read all instructions before using the washer.
• Refer to the Grounding Instructions in the Installation
Manual for the proper grounding of the washer.
• Do not wash articles that have been previously
cleaned in, washed in, soaked in, or spotted with
gasoline, dry-cleaning solvents, or other flammable or
explosive substances as they give off vapors that
could ignite or explode.
• Do not add gasoline, dry-cleaning solvents, or other
flammable or explosive substances to the wash
water. These substances 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 two weeks or more. Hydrogen gas is
explosive. If the hot water system has not been used
for such a period, before using a washing machine or
combination washer-dryer, 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.
• Do not allow children to play on or in the washer.
Close supervision of children is necessary when the
washer is used near children. This is a safety rule for
all appliances.
• Before the washer is removed from service or
discarded, remove the lid to the washing
compartment.
• Do not reach into the washer if the wash tub is
moving.
• Do not install or store the washer where it will be
exposed to water and/or weather.
• Do not tamper with the controls.
• Do not repair or replace any part of the washer, 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.
• To reduce the risk of an electric shock or fire, do not
use an extension cord or an adapter to connect the
washer to the electrical power source.
• Use your washer only for its intended purpose,
washing clothes.
• Always disconnect the washer from electrical supply
before attempting any service. Disconnect the power
cord by grasping the plug, not the cord.
• Install the washer according to the Installation
Instructions. All connections for water, drain,
electrical power and grounding must comply with
local codes and be made by licensed personnel

when required. Do not do it yourself unless you know
how!
To reduce the risk of fire, clothes which have traces
of any flammable substances such as vegetable oil,
cooking oil, machine oil, flammable chemicals,
thinner, etc. or anything containing wax or chemicals
such as in mops and cleaning cloths, must not be
put into the washer. These flammable substances
may cause the fabric to catch on fire by itself.
Do not use fabric softeners or products to eliminate
static unless recommended by the manufacturer of
the fabric softener or product.
Keep your washer in good condition. Bumping or
dropping the washer can damage safety features. If
this occurs, have your washer checked by a qualified
service person.
Replace worn power cords and/or loose plugs.
Be sure water connections have a shut-off valve and
that fill hose connections are tight. Close the shut-off
valves at the end of each wash day.
Loading lid must be closed any time the washer is in
operational fill, tumble, or spin. Do not attempt to
bypass the loading lid switch by permitting the
washer to operate with the loading lid open.
Always read and follow manufacturer’s instructions
on packages of laundry and cleaning aids. Heed all
warnings or precautions. To reduce the risk of
poisoning or chemical burns, keep them out of the
reach of children at all times (preferably in a locked
cabinet).
Always follow the fabric care instructions supplied by
the garment manufacturer.
Never operate the washer with any guards and/or
panels removed.
Do not operate the washer with missing or broken
parts.
Do not bypass any safety devices.
Failure to install, maintain, and/or operate this
washer according to the manufacturer’s instructions
may result in conditions which can produce bodily
injury and/or property damage.
NOTE: The Warnings and Important Safety Instructions
appearing in this manual are not meant to cover
all possible conditions and situations that may
occur. Common sense, caution and care must
be exercised when installing, maintaining, or
operating the washer.
Always contact your dealer, distributor, service agent or
the manufacturer about any problems or conditions you
do not understand.

About Ground Wires
In the event of an electrical short circuit, a ground wire
reduces the risk of electric shock by providing an escape
wire for the electric current.
Standard accepted color coding for ground wires is green
or green with a yellow stripe.
Grounding wires and wires colored like grounding wires
are NOT to be used as current carrying conductors.
To reduce the risk of fire, electric shock, serious injury
or death, all wiring and grounding must conform with
the latest edition of the National Electric Code, ANSI/
NFPA 70, or the Canadian Electrical Code, CSA
C22.1, and such local regulations as might apply. It is
the customer’s responsibility to have the wiring and
fuses checked by a qualified electrician to make sure
your home has adequate electrical power to operate
the washer.
To avoid risk of personal injury or death due to
electrical shock:
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
Observe all local codes and ordinances.
Disconnect electrical power to unit before servicing.
Ground appliance properly.
Check with a qualified electrician if you are not sure
this appliance is properly grounded.
DO NOT ground to gas line.
DO NOT ground to cold water pipe if pipe is
interrupted by plastic, nonmetallic gaskets, or other
insulating (nonconducting) materials.
DO NOT modify plug on power cord. If plug does not
fit electrical outlet, have proper outlet installed
by qualified electrician.
DO NOT have a fuse in the neutral or ground circuit.
A fuse in the neutral or ground circuit could result in
an electrical shock.
DO NOT use an extension cord with this appliance.
DO NOT use an adapter plug with this appliance.

Important Safety Information
Explanation
Polarization–This means that the larger slot must be
neutral and the small slot must be at line voltage.
Mispolarized–The outlet is incorrectly wired so that the
larger slot is at line voltage and the smaller slot is neutral.
Grounded–This means the round hole connection is connected to earth ground through a connection to the main
power panel.
Ungrounded–The round hole connection is not complete to
earth ground and/or the main power panel.
Grounding Instructions
• To avoid the risk of electrical shock or death, do not
alter the plug.
• Do not remove grounding prong when installing
grounded appliance in a home that does not have
three wire grounding receptacle. Under no condition
is grounding prong to be cut off or removed. It is the
personal responsibility of the consumer to contact a
qualified electrician and have properly grounded three
prong wall receptacle installed in accordance with
appropriate electrical codes.
• To avoid the risk of electrical shock or death, this
equipment must be grounded.
This equipment MUST be grounded. In the event of an
electrical short circuit, grounding reduces the risk of
electric shock by providing an escape wire for the electric
current. This unit is equipped with a cord having a
grounding wire with a grounding plug. The plug must be
plugged into an outlet that is properly installed and
grounded.
Consult a qualified electrician or technician if grounding
instructions are not completely understood, or if doubt
exists as to whether the equipment is properly grounded.
Do not use an extension cord. If the product power cord
is too short, have a qualified electrician install a three-slot
receptacle. This unit should be plugged into a separate 60
hertz circuit with the electrical rating as shown in the
appropriate drawing. Models operate with a supply voltage
of 120 Volts.

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.
ALCOVE OR CLOSET INSTALLATION
MINIMUM CLEARANCES FOR CLOSET AND ALCOVE INSTALLATIONS:
0 in / 250 mm
Sides – 0 in / 0 mm Rear – 1
0 mm Closet Front – 0 in / 0 mm
Top – 0
2 in / 51
The closet front must have a total unobstructed air opening of 72 in 2. / 465 cm 2 minimum, if both washer and
dryer are installed together. A louvered door with equivalent air opening is acceptable. Washer alone does
not require specific air opening.
UNDERCOUNTER INSTALLATION
MINIMUM CLEARANCES FOR UNDERCOUNTER INSTALLATIONS:
Sides – 0 in / 0 mm Rear – 0 in / 0 mm
Top – 0 in / 0 mm Front – 0 in / 0 mm
