Never use too much detergent
or additives. Using too much will
cause excessive sudsing, and
scaling which may reduce performance and cause possible damage
to your washer.
NEVER use detergent for “hand
washing” or a detergent that is
not designated for “machine use.”
When washing in COLD water,
reduce amount of detergent

grounding will reduce the risk of electric shock
by providing a path of least resistance for
electric current. This appliance is equipped
with a cord having an equipment grounding
conductor and grounding plug. The plug must
be plugged into an appropriate outlet that is
properly installed and grounded in accordance
with all local codes and ordinances. DO NOT

grounded outlet installed by a qualified electrician. The
outlet shouldn’t be controlled by a wall switch or pull
cord which can be turned off accidentally.
• If codes permit and a separate ground wire is used, it is
recommended that a qualified electrician determine that
the ground path is adequate.
• Do not ground to a plastic plumbing lines, gas lines or
water pipes.
• Check with a qualified electrician if you are not sure the
washer is properly grounded.
• DO NOT use an extension cord.

Route the Drain Hose
Proper routing of the drain hose protects your floors from
damage due to water leakage. Carefully read and follow
these instructions.
The drain hose is connected to the washer. To prevent
drain water from going back into the washer:
• Do not straighten the drain hose, and do not force
excess drain hose into the standpipe. Hose should be
secure, but loose enough to provide a gap for air.
• When routing the drain hose through cabinets or walls,
use a protective material such as electrical tape to cover
sharp edges that could damage the hose.
Remove the Transit Screws/Spacers
First, position the washer so that the rear of the unit is
within approximately 3 feet (90 cm) of the final location.
There are 4 bolts in the rear panel of the washer that support the suspension system during transportation.
1. Using a wrench, loosen each of the bolts.
Drain Hose
2. Once loosened, pull out the bolt, including the rubber
grommet and the plastic spacer covering the bolt.
3. Once all 4 bolts are removed,
close the holes with the transit
bolt hole plugs (provided).
4. Keep the bolts, rubber
grommets and plastic spacers in
a safe place. These items should
be reinstalled if the machine is
transported in the future.
Connect the Inlet Hoses
Before connecting any hoses, run the faucets until the
water is clear to remove any debris. Make sure the drum is
empty. Please use the new hoses supplied. Old hoses may
cause leaks due to worn out washers or may be split due to
water pressure.
1. Connect the angled ends of the hoses to the inlet
valves at the back of the machine (20mm threads).
Screw on the couplings BY HAND until they are seated
on each gasket.
Transit Screws/Spacers must be removed
before use.
Installation Instructions
2. Attach the hose connected to the ‘H’ valve to the hot
water faucet. Screw on the coupling BY HAND until it is
seated on the gasket. DO NOT OVERTIGHTEN.
3. Attach the hose connected to the ‘C’ valve
to the cold water faucet.
Screw on the coupling
BY HAND until it is
seated on the gasket.

The couplings should be tightened BY HAND,
a tool should only be used if a leak occurs. Do
not use excessive force.
Secure the Drain Hose
1. Drape the power cord over the washer top.
2. Secure the drain hose to the laundry tub leg or
standpipe with a strap or cable-tie.
3. Use the U-Clamp (provided) and insert the drain hose
into the standpipe or sink. DO NOT force excess drain
hose into the standpipe. There should be only 6” of
drain hose in the stand pipe.
2. Adjust the front feet up or down to ensure the
washer is resting solid and does not rock side-toside or front-to back when the machine is upright.
When moving washer to it’s final location,
take care not to kink the inlet or drain hoses.
