The stack washer/dryer must be installed on a ground
or basement floor, preferably concrete. If the flooring
is wood construction, the flooring must meet a static
load rating of 125 pounds and a maximum dynamic
load rating of 170 pounds per foot. If the existing floor
does not meet the dynamic load rating, the floor must
be re-enforced from below to meet the specification
(maximum span = 16 feet, 2x10 joists, 16 inches on
center, 1 inch sub floor).
The stack washer/dryer must be installed on a smooth,
non-slip surface. Un-level tile and extremely slippery
surfaces should be avoided. Do not install the washer
on carpeting, soft tile, a platform or other weakly
supported structures.
Failure to meet the minimum floor load and surface
requirements or installing the products on above
ground floors can create different levels of vibration or
movement that may appear like service is required.
Speed Queen will not cover scheduled repair services
where the installation requirements are not per
specifications, nor can products be returned to the
authorized dealer in these cases.

Step 3: Connect Fill Hoses
Water pressure must be a minimum of 20 to a
maximum of 120 pounds per square inch (138 to
827 kPa) static pressure measured at the faucet.
WARNING
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 and before using the
washer, 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.
W029
NOTE: Water pressure under 20 pounds per
square inch (138 kPa) will cause an extended fill
time in the washer and may not properly flush out
the detergent dispenser.
Turn on the water faucets and flush the lines for
approximately two minutes to remove any foreign
material that could clog the screens in the water
mixing valve.
NOTE: When installing in newly constructed or
renovated buildings, it is very important to flush
the lines since build-up may have occurred during
construction.

Remove the two plain rubber washers and two filter
screens from the accessories bag. Install them into
each end of the fill hoses as shown in Figure 5. The
screen must be facing outward.
Screw hose couplings with the filter screens onto the
water faucets until they are finger-tight. Then, using a
pliers, screw approximately 1/4 turn. Use the red
color-coded hose for the hot water connection and the
blue color-coded hose for the cold water connection.
Water Supply
Water supply faucets must fit standard 3/4 inch
(19.1 mm) female garden hose couplings. DO NOT
USE SLIP-ON OR CLAMP-ON CONNECTIONS.
Water supply faucets should be readily accessible to
permit turning them off when washer is not being
used.
o
Recommended cold water temperature is 60 to
80o Fahrenheit (16o to 27o Celsius). Recommended
maximum hot water temperature is 125o Fahrenheit
(51o Celsius). Warm water is a mixture of hot and cold
water. Warm water temperature is dependent upon
water temperature and pressure of both the hot and
cold water supply lines.
Screw hose couplings from other end of hoses onto the
water mixing valve until they are finger-tight. Then,
using a pliers, screw approximately 1/4 turn. Refer to
Figure 6. Make sure the red color-coded hose from the
hot water faucet goes to the water mixing valve
marked “H” and the blue color-coded hose from the
cold faucet goes to the valve marked “C”.
IMPORTANT: Do not cross thread or overtighten
couplings. This will cause them to leak.
Turn water on and check for leaks. If leaks are found,
turn off the water, unscrew hoses and reinstall them
until there are no leaks.
IMPORTANT: Turn off water supply whenever
there will be an extended period of non-use.
WARNING
To prevent personal injury, avoid contact
with inlet water temperatures higher than
125° Fahrenheit (51° Celsius) and hot
surfaces.
