Selecting the proper location for your washer improves
performance and minimizes noise and possible washer "walk."
Your washer can be installed in a basement, laundry room,
closet, or recessed area. (See "Drain System.")
IMPORTANT: Do not install or store the washer where it will be
exposed to the weather.
Proper installation is your responsibility.
You will need:
•
A water heater set to deliver 120°F (49°C) water to the
washer.
•
A grounded electrical outlet located within 4 ft (1.2 m) of
where the power cord is attached to the back of the washer.
(See "Electrical Requirements.")
Hot and cold water faucets located within 4 ft (1.2 m) of the
hot and cold water fill valves, and water pressure of 5-100 psi
(34.5-690 kPa). Washers with triple dispensers require
20-100 psi (138-690 kPa) for best performance.
2
•
A level floor with a maximum slope of 1 in. (2.5 cm) under
entire washer. Installing the washer on carpeting is not
recommended.
•
A sturdy floor to support the washer weight (washer, water
and load) of 315 Ibs (143 kgs).
Do not store or operate your washer in temperatures at or below
32°F (0°C). Some water can remain in the washer and can cause
damage in low temperatures. See "Washer Care" in the
Washer User Instructions for winterizing information.
Recessed
The top of the standpipe must be at least 39 in. (99 cm) high and

This washer is equipped with a power supply cord having a 3
prong ground plug.

Standpipe drain system - wall or floor (view I & 2)
The standpipe drain requires a minimum diameter standpipe of
2 in. (5 cm). The minimum carry-away capacity can be no less
than 17 gal. (64 L) per minute. A 2 in. (5 cm) diameter to 1 in.
(2.5 cm) diameter standpipe adapter kit is available. See
"Alternate Parts."
To minimize possible shock hazard, the cord must be
plugged into a mating, 3 prong, ground-type outlet, grounded
in accordance with local codes and ordinances. If a mating
outlet is not available, it is the personal responsibility and
obligation of the customer to have the properly grounded
outlet installed by a qualified electrician.
3
If codes permit and a separate ground wire is used, it is
recommended that a qualified electrician determine that the
ground path is adequate.
GROUNDINGINSTRUCTIONS
For a grounded, cord-connected washer:
This washer must be grounded. In the event of a malfunction
or breakdown, grounding will reduce the risk of electrical
shock by providing a path of least resistance for electric
current. This washer is equipped with a cord having an
equipment-grounding conductor and a 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 ground to a gas pipe.
Check with a qualified electrician if you are not sure the
washer is properly grounded.
Do not have a fuse in the neutral or ground circuit.
WARNING:
Improper connection of the equipmentgrounding conductor can result in a risk of electric 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.
1.3 prong grounding plug
2. 3 prong grounding-type outlet
For a permanently connected washer:
This washer must be connected to a grounded metal,
permanent wiring system, or an equipment grounding
conductor must be run with the circuit conductors and
connected to the equipment-grounding terminal or lead on
the appliance.
