ELECTRICAL REQUIREMENTS
INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
Before you start: remove shipping materials
It is necessary to remove all shipping materials for proper
operation and to avoid excessive noise from washer.
1. Move washer
nA 120 volt, 60 Hz., AC only, 15- or 20-amp, fused electrical supply
is required. A time-delay fuse or circuit breaker is recommended.
It is recommended that a separate circuit breaker serving only this
appliance be provided.
n This washer is equipped with a power supply cord having
a 3 prong grounding plug.
nTo minimize possible shock hazard, the cord must be plugged
into a mating, 3 prong, grounding-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.
nIf codes permit and a separate ground wire is used, it is
recommended that a qualified electrician determine that the ground path is adequate.
nDo not ground to a gas pipe.
nCheck with a qualified electrician if you are not sure the
washer is properly grounded.
nDo not have a fuse in the neutral or ground circuit.

2. Remove shipping base
To avoid damaging floor, place cardboard supports from
shipping carton on floor behind washer. Tip washer back and
place on cardboard supports. Remove shipping base. Set

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 provided).
8. Connect inlet hoses to water faucets
Attach hot water hose to hot water inlet valve marked with a
red ring. Screw coupling by hand until it is snug. Use pliers to
tighten couplings an additional two-thirds turn. Repeat with
cold water inlet valve.

On models with metal feet, use a 9/16" or 14 mm open-end or
adjustable wrench to turn jam nuts clockwise on feet until they
are about 1/2" (13 mm) from the washer cabinet. Then turn the
leveling foot clockwise to lower the washer or counterclockwise
to raise the washer.
On models with plastic feet, use adjustable pliers to turn the
plastic leveling foot counterclockwise to lower the washer or
clockwise to raise the washer. On all models, recheck levelness
of washer and repeat as needed.
Move the washer to its final location. Place a level on top
edges of washer. Use side seam as a guide to check levelness
of sides. Check levelness of front using lid, as shown. Rock
washer back and forth to make sure all four feet make solid
contact with floor. If washer is level, skip to step 15, (on
models with metal feet) or step 16 (on models with plastic
