Installation
Step 1: Position Washer Near Installation
Area
Move washer as close to the desired area of
installation as possible.
If washer is not level, tilt washer to access the front
and rear leveling legs. Loosen the locknuts and adjust
legs by screwing into or out of washer base.
Make sure that the washer does not rock. When
washer is level and does not rock, tighten locknuts
securely against bottom of washer base. If these
locknuts are not tight, washer will move out of
position during operation.
NOTE: For best performance and to minimize
vibration or movement, install washer on a solid,
sturdy and level floor. Some floors may need to be
reinforced, especially on a second floor or over a
basement. Do not install the washer on carpeting,
soft tile, a platform or other weakly supported
structures.
Do not slide washer across floor once the leveling legs
have been extended. Legs and base could become
damaged.
Step 2: Position and Level the Washer
Verify that washer does not rock.
Place rubber feet (supplied in accessories bag) on all
four leveling legs. Refer to Figure 3.
WARNING
1
Washers elevated above floor level must
be anchored to that elevated surface,
base or platform. The material used to
elevate the washer should also be
anchored to the floor to ensure that the
washer will not walk or that the washer
can not be physically pulled, tipped or
slid from its installed position. Failure to
do so may result in conditions which can
produce serious injury, death and/or
property damage.

Position washer so it has sufficient clearance for
installation and servicing.
NOTE: Use of the dispenser drawer or washer door
as a handle in the transportation of the washer may
cause damage to the dispenser or door.
Place washer in position on a clean, firm and
reasonably level floor. Installing the washer on any
type of carpeting is not recommended.

Step 3: Connect Fill Hoses
Water pressure must be a minimum of 138 to a
maximum of 827 kPa (20 to 120 psi) 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
Water Supply
Water supply faucets must fit standard 19.1 mm
(3/4 inch) 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.
Recommended cold water temperature is 16o to 27o
Celsius (60o to 80o Fahrenheit). Recommended
maximum hot water temperature is 51° Celsius
(125° Fahrenheit). 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.
WARNING
To prevent personal injury, avoid contact
with inlet water temperatures higher than
51° Celsius (125° Fahrenheit) and hot
surfaces.

NOTE: Water pressure under 138 kPa (20 psi) will
cause an extended fill time in the washer and may
not properly flush out the detergent dispenser.
The appliance is to be connected to the water mains
using new hose-sets and old hose-sets should not be
reused.
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.
Connecting Hoses
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 4. The
screen must be facing outward.
Screw black hose couplings with the filter screens onto
the water faucets until they are finger-tight. Then,
using a pliers, screw approximately 1/4 turn.
Screw brass 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 5.
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.
NOTE: Longer fill hoses are available (as optional
equipment at extra cost) if the hoses supplied with
the washer are not long enough for the installation.
Order hoses as follows:
No. 37380 Fill Hose 2.44 m (8 feet)
No. 37381 Fill Hose 3.05 m (10 feet)

IMPORTANT: Hoses and other natural rubber
parts deteriorate after extended use. Hoses may
develop cracks, blisters or material wear from the
temperature and constant high pressure they are
subject to.
All hoses should be checked on a monthly basis for
any visible signs of deterioration. Any hose showing
the signs of deterioration listed above should be
replaced immediately. All hoses should be replaced
every five years.

Remove the drain hose from its shipping position on
the rear of the washer by unhooking the hose from the
retainer clamp and by removing the shipping tape.
Install the drain hose into the drain receptacle
(standpipe, wall or laundry tub) following the
instructions below.
For installations of this type, the drain hose MUST be
secured to one of the fill hoses using the beaded strap
from accessories bag. Refer to Figure 7.
NOTE: End of drain hose must not be below 61 cm
(24 in.).
IMPORTANT: Drain receptacle must be capable of
handling a minimum of 3.2 cm (1-1/4 inch) outside
diameter drain hose.

Step 8: Check Installation
The washer is designed to be operated on a separate
branch, polarized, three-wire, effectively earthed, 100
Volt, 60 Hertz, AC (alternating current) circuit
protected by a 15 Amp fuse, equivalent fusetron or
circuit breaker.
Refer to Installer Checklist on the back cover of this
manual and make sure that washer is installed
correctly.
The three-prong earthing plug on the power cord
should be plugged directly into a polarized three-slot
effectively earthed receptacle rated 100 Volts AC
(alternating current) 15 Amps. Refer to Figure 15 to
determine correct polarity of the wall receptacle.
Run washer with a test load to make sure it is
operating properly and properly leveled.
a. Put about six pounds of laundry (four bath
towels and three jeans) into washer.
b. Close door.
c. Select a Spin Only cycle and press Start.
d. When washer spins at high speed, verify that
it is stable.
WARNING
To reduce the risk of an electric shock or
fire, DO NOT use an extension cord or an
adapter to connect the washer to the
electric power source.
e. If it is not, after cycle is complete, refer to
Step 2 and readjust leveling legs.
W082
Earthing Information
The washer must be earthed. In the event of
malfunction or breakdown, earthing will reduce the
risk of electric shock by providing a path of least
resistance for electric current.
The washer is equipped with a cord having an
equipment-earthing conductor. Some models are also
equipped with a 3-prong earthing plug. The washer
must be connected to an appropriate power source that
is properly installed and earthed in accordance with all
local codes and ordinances.
WARNING
Improper connection of the equipmentearthing conductor can result in a risk of
electric shock. Check with a qualified
electrician or service person if you are in
doubt as to whether the washer is
properly earthed.
W032
Do not modify the plug provided with the washer - if it
will not fit the outlet, have a proper outlet installed by
a qualified electrician.
NOTE: Have a qualified electrician check the
polarity of the power source.
