Read all instructions before using the appliance.
DO NOT wash or dry articles that have been previously cleaned, washed, soaked, 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 2 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, open all hot-water faucets
and allow water flow 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.
Always unplug the washing machine from the power supply before attempting any service. Disconnect the power cord by grasping the plug, not the cord.
To reduce the risk of fire, clothes, cleaning rags, mop heads and the like which have traces of
any flammable substance, such as vegetable oil, cooking oil, petroleum based oils or distillates,
waxes, fats,etc.,must not be placed in the washing machine. These items may contain flammable substances which ,even after washing, may smoke or catch fire.
Never place items in the washer that have been dampened with gasoline or any combustible or
explosive substance. DO NOT wash or dry anything that has been soaked in or spotted with any
type of oil (including cooking oils). Doing so can result in fire, explosion, or death.
DO NOT allow children to play on or in the appliance. Close supervision of children is necessary
when the appliance is used near children.
Pets and children may climb into the machine. Check the machine before every operation.
Glass door or protector may be very hot during the operation. Caution should be used when
opening the door of the appliance after the drying cycle to prevent any potential contact with the
hot glass door. Keep children and pets away from the machine during the operation.
This machine is not intended for use by persons (including children) with reduced physical,
sensory or mental capabilities, or lack of experience and knowledge, unless they are considered
by their legal Parent/Guardian to be capable of safely operating the product and have received
complete instructions on said safe operation.
Children should be supervised to ensure that they do not play with the machine.
When children become old enough to operate the appliance, it is the legal responsibility of the
parents or legal guardians to ensure that they are instructed in safe practices by qualified persons.
DO NOT machine wash fiberglass materials (such as curtains and window coverings that use
fiberglass materials.) Small particles may remain in the washing machine and stick to fabrics in
subsequent wash loads causing skin irritation.
Before the appliance is removed from service or discarded, remove the door and cut off the
power cord.
Always turn the appliance off before opening the door. DO NOT reach into the appliance if the
tub or agitator is moving.

Electrical
To avoid fire, electrical shock and other accidents, please remember the following:
 Only the voltage indicated on power label can be used. If you are not clear of
the voltage at home, please contact the local power company.
 When you are using the heating function, the maximum current through the
washing machine will reach 12A. Therefore, please make sure the power
supply units (current, voltage and cable) have a minimum circuit ampacity of
15A .
 Protect the power cord properly. Power cord shall be fixed well so that it will
not trip people or be damaged.
 DO NOT connect this machine to:
 A receptacle that is not a National Electrical Code approved device.
 ANY extension cords.
 DO NOT make the wall-mounted socket overloaded or cable extended. Overloading of the wiring may cause fire or electrical shock. Do not pull out power
plug with wet hand.
 To ensure your safety, power plug must be inserted into a grounded three pole socket.

INSTALLATION REQUIREMENTS
CARE AND CLEANING
Location Requirements
Selecting the proper location for your washer improves performance and minimizes noise
and possible washer vibration and possible movement. In selecting your washer/dryer location consideration must be taken for the drain system, see “Drain System Options ” on page 11,.
Requirements:
1.
A water heater set to deliver 120°F (49°C) water to the washer.
2.
A grounded electrical outlet located within 6 ft.(1.8 m) of where the power cord is attached to the
back of the washer. See “Electrical Requirements.”
3.
Hot and cold water faucets located within 4 ft.(1.2 m) of the hot and cold water fill valves, and
water pressure of 7.3 - 145 psi (0.05 - 1 MPa).
4.
A level floor with a maximum slope of 2° under entire washer. Installing the washer on soft floor
surfaces, such as carpets or surfaces with foam backing, is not recommended.
5.
A sturdy and solid floor to support the washer with a total weight (water and load) of 280lbs.
6.
DO NOT operate your washer in temperatures below 32°F (0°C). Some water can remain in the
washer and can freeze, causing damage in low temperatures.
7.
DO NOT operate washer/dryer if the angle of inclination exceeds 2°. Refer to installation requirements page 7.
