It is the personal responsibility of the appliance owner to provide adequate electrical service for this appliance. 8"3/*/( Never use an extension cord. Use only the power cord that comes with your washing machine. When preparing for installation, ensure that your power supply offers: t 220V~240V 50Hz 15 AMP fuse or circuit breaker t Individual branch circuit serving only your washing machine Your washing machine must be grounded. If your washing machine malfunctions or breaks down, grounding will reduce the risk of electric shock by providing a path of least resistance for the electric current. Your washing machine comes with a power cord having a three-prong grounding plug for use in a properly installed and grounded outlet. Never connect the ground wire to plastic plumbing lines, gas lines, or hot water pipes. Improperly connecting the equipment-grounding conductor can result electrical shock. Check with a qualiﬁed electrician or serviceman if you are unsure if the washing machine is properly grounded. Do not modify the plug provided with the washing machine. If it does not ﬁt the outlet, have a proper outlet installed by a qualiﬁed electrician. Water Supply Your washing machine will ﬁll properly when your water pressure is 50 kPa ~ 800 kPa. Water pressure less than 50 kPa may cause water valve failure, not allowing the water valve to shut off completely. Or, it may take the washing machine longer to ﬁll than what the controls allow, resulting in your washing machine turning off. (A ﬁll-time limit, designed to prevent overﬂows/ ﬂooding if an internal hose becomes loose, is built into the controls.) The water taps must be within 4 feet (122cm) of the back of your washing machine for the provided inlet hoses provided to reach your washing machine. Most plumbing supply stores sell inlet hoses of various lengths up to 10 feet (305cm) long.

The drain hose must be routed through the drain hose clip to the standpipe. The standpipe must be large enough to accept the outside diameter of the drain hose. The drain hose is attached at the factory. For best performance, your washing machine must be installed on a solidly constructed ﬂoor. Wood ﬂoors may need to be reinforced to minimize vibration and/or unbalanced loads. Carpeting and soft tile surfaces are contributing factors to vibrations and the tendency for your washing machine to move slightly during the spin cycle. Never install your washing machine on a platform or poorly supported structure. 4VSSPVOEJOHUFNQFSBUVSF Do not install your washing machine in areas where water may freeze, since your washing machine always retains some water in its water valve, pump, and hose areas.
