because they can catch lint.
Connect Drain Hose
Proper connection of the drain hose protects your floors
from damage due to water leakage. To keep the drain hose
from coming off or leaking, it must be installed according
to the following instructions:
IMPORTANT: To ensure proper installation, this procedure
must be followed exactly.
1. Attach clamp to drain hose
3. Place drain hose in standpipe
Drain
hose form
4.5"
(114 mm)
¼"
(6.4 mm)
Place hose into standpipe (shown in picture) or over side of
laundry tub.
IMPORTANT: 4.5" (114 mm) of drain hose should be inside
standpipe; do not force excess hose into standpipe or lay
on bottom of laundry tub. Drain hose form must be used.
Check the drain hose to see whether it is the proper length.
Wet the inside of the straight end of the drain hose with tap
water.
IMPORTANT: Do not use any lubricant other than water.
Squeeze ears of the silver double-wire clamp with pliers to
open. Place clamp over the straight end of the drain hose 1/4"
(6.4 mm) from the end.
4. Remove drain hose form
(floor drain installations only)
2. Attach drain hose to drain connector
(27" model shown)
The appearance of the
24" model will vary
For floor drain installations, you will need to remove the drain
hose form from the end of the drain hose. You may need
additional parts with separate directions. See “Tools and Parts.”
Open clamp. Twist hose back and forth while pushing onto
drain connector on the side of the washer/dryer. Continue until
hose contacts the ribbed stops on the cabinet. Place clamp
over the area marked “CLAMP.” Release clamp.
29
Connect Inlet Hoses
Washer must be connected to water faucets with new inlet
hoses with flat washers (not provided). Do not use old hoses.
NOTE: Both hoses must be attached and have water flowing
to inlet valves. If you are only connecting to a cold water
faucet, you must use a Y-adapter (not included).
3. Clear water lines
1. Insert washer into each hose
Run water for a few seconds through hoses into a laundry tub,
drainpipe, or bucket to prevent clogs. Water should run until clear.
Washer
Coupling
4. Connect inlet hoses to washer
Insert a new flat washer into each end of the inlet hoses
(not provided). Firmly seat the washers in the couplings.
2. Connect inlet hoses to water faucets
Attach hot water hose to the bottom inlet valve. Screw
coupling by hand until it is snug. Use pliers to tighten
couplings an additional two-thirds turn. Repeat with cold
water inlet valve (top valve).
IMPORTANT: To reduce risk of hose failure, replace the hoses
every 5 years. Record hose installation or replacement dates
for future reference.
n Periodically inspect and replace hoses if bulges, kinks, cuts,
wear, or leaks are found.
Attach hose to hot water faucet. Screw on coupling by hand
until it is seated on washer. Use pliers to tighten couplings an
additional two-thirds turn. Repeat this step with second hose
for cold water faucet.
IMPORTANT: Do not overtighten or use tape or sealants on
valve when attaching to faucets or washer. Damage can result.
5. Move washer/dryer to final location
Outer Access Panel
(27" model shown)
Inner Access Panel
(27" models only)
HELPFUL TIP: Make note of which hose is connected to hot
water to help in attaching hoses to washer correctly. In most
standard configurations, hoses will cross over each other
when attached correctly.
30
If you are working in a closet or recessed area: move the
washer/dryer into its final location and remove cardboard
from under washer/dryer. Remove the outer access panel
by removing 2 (24" models) or 3 (27" models) Phillips-head
screws and one bumper (27" models only), located at the top
of the access panel. Remove inner access panel (27" models
only) by removing clip, cover, and 2 screws. Set panels,
screws, clip, inner access panel cover, and bumper aside.
