The unit is allowed for built-in application. ,The machine may not be operated without the lid in place. ,Do not install the machine directly next to or over an open floor drain or drain channel. Moisture can penetrate the machine and damage electrical parts. ^ Install the unit on a 27 9/16" x 23 5/8" x 1 3/16" (70 x 60 x 3 cm) plywood base. Ideally the base should be large enough to span several joists and should be anchored to the joists and not just the floor boards. It is best to install the washer in the corner of a room, where the stability of the floor is at its greatest. Installation ^ Use the front washer feet and the rear excess end to transport the washer from its shipping pallet to the installation site. Do not lift the washer by the drum door. A concrete floor is the most suitable surface for the washer. Concrete floors are less prone to vibration during the spin cycle than wooden floors. ,Ensure that the machine’s feet ,If the machine is installed on a Removing the shipping struts and the floor are dry to prevent slippage during the spin cycle. masonry or concrete base it must be secured with retaining clips to prevent the washer from vibrating off the stand during the spin cycle. ^ The machine must be leveled and securely positioned. ^ To avoid vibration while spinning, the machine should not be installed on soft floor coverings. In case the installation must be on a wooden joist floor: ^ Remove the left and right rotary protectors. 1. Unhook the rotary protector with a screw driver. 2. Remove the rotary protectors. 48 Installation ^ Turn the left shipping strut counterclockwise 90° with the enclosed combination wrench. ^ Turn the right shipping strut clockwise 90° with the enclosed combination wrench. ^ Pull the shipping strut out. ^ Pull out the shipping strut out. 49 Installation ,Movement of the washer without the shipping struts in place should be kept to a minimum. The shipping struts should be stored on the back of the washer for future use. They must be reinstalled before moving the machine. Installing the shipping struts ^ Close the holes with the rotary protectors and their caps. ^ Fasten the shipping struts at the rear side of the washer. Take care to insert the drill holes, b, into the clamps, a. 50 ^ Reinstall the struts by reversing the installation procedure. Installation Leveling the washer Adjust the four leveling feet The washer is leveled by adjusting the four feet. The machine is boxed with the feet completely screwed in. To ensure smooth operation the washer must be level. Failure to level the machine can result in increased water and energy consumption as well as the washer "banging" during the spin cycle or "walking" across the floor during use. ^ Turn the locking nut, 2, counterclockwise with the enclosed combination wrench. Unscrew each of the four feet as much as necessary by turning both the foot, 1, and the locking nut, 2, to the left. ^ Check that the machine stands level. ^ Once level, hold the foot, 1, steady with a wrench. Turn the locking nut, 2, with the combination wrench towards the machine. ,All four locking nuts must be tight against the bottom of the machine. In addition, check to see that the feet were not inadvertently unscrewed while tightening the nuts. Running a machine that is not level or whose feet are not tight may cause damage to both the machine and its surrounding area. 51 Installation Washer/ Dryer Stack Installation on a base The machine can be installed on an open or closed steel base, or on a concrete base. Concrete is recommended. ^ Secure the two front feet of the washer with the supplied retaining clips when installing on a concrete base. ^ Read the supplied Installation manual.
