60-Hz., AC-only electrical supply (or 3 or 4 wire, 120/208-volt
electrical supply, if specified on the serial/rating plate) on a
separate 30-ampere circuit, fused on both sides of the line. A
time-delay fuse or circuit breaker is recommended. Connect
to an individual branch circuit. Do not have a fuse in the
neutral or grounding circuit.
■
Do not use an extension cord.
■
If codes permit and a separate ground wire is used, it is
recommended that a qualified electrician determine that the
ground path is adequate.
Electrical Connection
To properly install your washer/dryer, you must determine the type
of electrical connection you will be using and follow the
instructions provided for it here.
■ If local codes do not permit the connection of a cabinet
ground connector to the neutral wire, see “Optional 3-wire
Connection.”
■
This washer/dryer is manufactured with a 3-wire, cabinetground conductor connected to the NEUTRAL (white or
center wire) of the wiring harness at the terminal block.
■

Do not straighten hooked end of the drain hose and force
excess drain hose into standpipe. Hose should be secure
but loose enough to provide a gap for air.
■
Do not lay excess hose on the bottom of the laundry tub.

For use with floor drain
Remove the drain hose hook from the corrugated drain hose. You
may need additional parts. See “Floor Drain” under “Alternate
Parts.”
Connect Inlet Hoses
1. Insert a new flat washer (supplied) into each end of the inlet
hoses. Firmly seat the washers in the couplings.

7. Attach the hose with the red coupling to the hot water
(bottom) inlet valve. Screw on coupling by hand until seated
on the washer. Using pliers, tighten the couplings with an
additional two-thirds turn.
NOTE: Do not overtighten. Damage to the valves can result.
If you are working in a closet or recessed area
Move the washer/dryer into its final position and remove
cardboard from under washer/dryer. Remove the access panel by
removing three Phillips-head screws and one bumper, located at
the top of the access panel. Set panel, screw, and bumper aside.
Complete hookup of water hoses and (on gas models) the flexible
gas connector through the access area. Replace access panel
upon completion of washer/dryer installation.

2. Attach the hose with the red coupling to the hot water faucet.
Screw on coupling by hand until seated on the washer.
3. Attach the hose with the blue coupling to the cold water
faucet. Screw on coupling by hand until seated on the washer.
4. Using pliers, tighten the couplings with an additional twothirds turn.
Check for leaks
8. Turn on the water faucets and check for leaks. A small amount
of water might enter the washer. You will drain this later.
NOTE: Replace inlet hoses after 5 years of use to reduce the risk
of hose failure. Record hose installation or replacement dates for
future reference.
■ If you connect only one water hose, you must cap off the
remaining water inlet port.
■
Periodically inspect and replace hoses if bulges, kinks, cuts,
wear, or leaks are found.
NOTE: Do not overtighten. Damage to the valves can result.

Special provisions for mobile home installations
The exhaust vent must be securely fastened to a noncombustible
portion of the mobile home structure and must not terminate
beneath the mobile home. Terminate the exhaust vent outside.
2½"
(6.4 cm)
See the exhaust vent length chart that matches your hood
type for the maximum vent lengths you can use.
Exhaust systems longer than specified will:
■
Shorten the life of the dryer.
■
Reduce performance, resulting in longer drying times and
increased energy usage.
3. Determine the number of elbows you will need.
IMPORTANT: Do not use vent runs longer than those
specified in the Vent Length Chart.
The following Vent Length Chart helps you determine your
maximum vent length based on the number of 90° turns or
elbows you will need and the type of vent (rigid metal or
flexible metal) and hood that you will use.

1. Select the route that will provide the straightest and most
direct path outdoors. Plan the installation to use the fewest
number of elbows and turns. When using elbows or making
turns, allow as much room as possible. Bend vent gradually to
avoid kinking. Avoid 90º turns.
