Electrical supply and grounding

  • AC 120 V / 60 Hz / 15 AMP fuse or circuit breaker is required.
  • Use an individual branch circuit. Connect only the washer to the circuit.
  • To ensure proper grounding, the washer comes with a power cord featuring a three-prong grounding plug for use in a properly installed and grounded outlet.
  • Check with a qualified electrician or service person if you are not sure about the grounding.
  • Do not modify the provided plug. If it does not fit the outlet, call a qualified electrician to install a proper outlet.

WARNING

  1. Do NOT use an extension cord.
  2. Use only the power cord that comes with the washer.
  3. Do NOT connect the ground wire to plastic plumbing, gas lines, or hot water pipes.
  4. Improperly connected grounding conductors may cause electric shock.
  5. To prevent unnecessary risk of fire, electrical shock, or personal injury, all wiring and grounding must be done in accordance with local codes, or in the absence of local codes, in accordance with the National Electrical Code, ANSI/NFPA No. 70-Latest
  6. Revision (for the U.S.) or the Canadian Electrical Code CSA C22.1 – Latest Revisions and local codes and ordinances. It is your responsibility to provide adequate electrical service for your washer.

Water supply

  • Proper water pressure for this washer is between 20-116 psi (137-800 kPa). Water pressure less than 20 psi (137 kPa) may cause the water valve not to close completely.
  • Or, it may take longer to fill the drum, causing the washer to turn off. Water taps must be within 4 ft. (122 cm) from the rear of the washer so that the provided inlet hoses reach the washer.

To reduce the risk of leaks:

  1. Make sure water taps are easily accessible.
  2. Turn off the taps when the washer is not in use.
  3. Check for any leaks at the water inlet hose fittings on a regular basis.

CAUTION

  • Before using the washer for the first time, check all connections at the water valve and taps for any leaks.

Drain

  • Samsung recommends a standpipe 18 in. (460 mm) high. The drain hose must be connected through the hose clip to the standpipe, and the standpipe must fully cover the drain hose.

Flooring

  • For best performance, the washer must be installed on a solid floor. Wood floors may need to be reinforced to minimize vibration and/or unbalanced loads.
  • Carpeting and soft tile surfaces do not provide good resistance to vibrations and may cause the washer to move slightly during the spin cycle.

CAUTION

  • Do NOT install the washer on a platform or a poorly supported structure.

Water temperature

  • Do not install the washer in areas where water may freeze as the washer always retains some water in its water valves, pumps, and/or hoses. Frozen water can cause damage to belts, the pump, and other components of the washer.

• Has a solid, level surface without carpeting or flooring that may obstruct ventilation • Is away from direct sunlight

• Has adequate room for opening and closing the door

• Is away from any heat sources

• Provides room for maintenance and servicing

• Has a temperature range between 50 °F (10 °C) and 109 °F (43 °C) CAUTION

• If your refrigerator is equipped with an ice maker, provide extra space at the rear of the refrigerator for the water line connection.

• When you install the refrigerator next to a fixed wall, you must provide a minimum clearance of 3 3/4" (95 mm) from the wall to allow the door to swing open.

STEP 2 Flooring

  • If the refrigerator cannot pass through the entrance due to its size, see STEP 3 Door removal for entrance

NOTE

  • To prevent floor damage, make sure the front leveling legs are in the upright position.
  • The surface you install the refrigerator on must support a fully loaded refrigerator.
  • To protect the floor, put a large piece of cardboard along the path to the refrigerator's final installation location.
  • Once the refrigerator is in its final position, do not move it unless necessary to protect the floor. If you have to move the refrigerator, place thick paper or cloth such as old carpets along the path of movement.

STEP 3 Door removal for entrance

  1. If the refrigerator cannot pass through the entrance to your home or kitchen due to its size, follow these instructions to remove and then re-install the refrigerator's doors. If you do not need to remove the doors, go to page 29 to continue the installation procedure.
  2. With the doors closed, use a Phillips head screwdriver to remove the screws x3) in the top cover.
  3. Disconnect the wires and the water tube from the left-side door. Do the following sequentially:
  4. Decouple the connector.
  5. While holding down one end of the water line coupler, disconnect the water tube.

CAUTION

  • Keep the water tube clips out of children’s reach.
  • Gently draw up the clamp. To prevent finger injuries, do not apply a sudden force to the clamp.

Guidelines

To detach the freezer drawer

  • Lift up the front of the upper basket and pull to remove.
  • Lift the door bin to remove.
  • Then, pull up to remove the lower basket from the rail assembly.
  • Press down the hooks to unlock the rail assembly.
  • While holding the upper area of the freezer drawer front, slide the drawer out all the way to remove the freezer drawer from the rail assembly.

CAUTION

  1. Be careful not to scratch or dent the rail assembly.
  2. Make sure you mount the freezer baskets in the correct position.
  3. Otherwise, the door will not open or close properly, which causes frost to build up.
  4. Do not store too much food in the freezer drawer. This prevents the freezer drawer from closing properly, resulting in frost buildup.

STEP 4 Leveling the refrigerator

  • To adjust the height of the left side:
  • Insert a flat-head screwdriver into the leveler of the left side front leg. Turn the leveler clockwise to raise the left side or turn it counterclockwise to lower.
  • To adjust the height of the right side:
  • Insert a flat-head screwdriver into the leveler of the right side front leg. Turn the leveler clockwise to raise the right side or turn it counterclockwise to lower.

STEP 5 Adjust the door height and the door gap

  • Check the height difference between the doors, and then lift up and hold the door with the lower height.
  • Insert a suitable-sized snap ring (A) between the door grommet (B) and the hinge as shown.

CAUTION

  • Insert only one snap ring. If you insert two or more snap rings, the rings may slip out or make a rubbing noise.
  • Keep the snap rings out of children’s reach and keep them for future use.
  • Do not raise the door too much. The door can contact and damage the top cover.

STEP 6 Attach the handles

  1. Using a Phillips screwdriver, attach the handle screws to the refrigerator, two for each handle respectively, as shown in the illustration to the left.
  2. Attach the handle to the handle screws on the door.
  3. For type B handle: Insert the hook on the middle of the handle to its designated hole on the door, and then place the upper and lower part of the handles to the handle screws.

STEP 7 Connect the water dispenser line

  • A water dispenser with a filter is one of the helpful features on your new refrigerator. To help promote better health, the water filter removes unwanted particles from your water. However, it does not sterilize or destroy microorganisms.
  • You may need to purchase a water purifying system to do that. The water line also connects to the ice maker. For the ice maker to operate properly, water pressure of 30 to 120 psi (206 to 827 kPa) psi is required.
  • If the refrigerator is installed in an area with low water pressure (below 30 psi / 206 kPa), you can install a booster pump to compensate for the low pressure.
  • After you have connected the water line, make sure the water storage tank inside the refrigerator is properly filled. To do this, press the water dispenser lever until water runs from the water outlet.

STEP 8 Initial settings

  • By completing the following steps, the refrigerator should be fully functioning.
  • Plug the power cord into the wall socket to turn the refrigerator on.
  • Open the door, and check if the interior light lights up.
  • Set the temperature to the coldest setting, and wait for about an hour. Then, the freezer will be slightly chilled, and the motor should be running smoothly.
  • Wait until the refrigerator reaches the set temperature. Now the refrigerator is ready for use.

STEP 9 Final check

  • When installation is complete, confirm that:
  • The refrigerator is plugged into an electrical outlet and grounded properly.
  • The refrigerator is installed on a flat, level surface with a reasonable clearance from walls and cabinets.
  • The refrigerator is level and is sitting firmly on the floor.
  • The door opens and closes freely, and the interior light turns on automatically when you open the door.

Refrigerator will not operate

  • Not connected to an electrical supply - Plug the power cord into a grounded 3 prong outlet. Do not use an extension cord. 
  • No power to the electrical outlet - Plug in a lamp to see if the outlet is working. 
  • Household fuse has blown or circuit breaker has tripped - Replace the fuse or reset the circuit breaker. If the problem continues, contact a licensed electrician. 

New installation 

  • Following installation, allow 24 hours for the refrigerator and freezer to cool completely. NOTE: Adjusting the temperature control(s) to the coldest setting will not cool either compartment (refrigerator or freezer) more quickly.

Motor seems to run too much 

  • Your new refrigerator has an energy-efficient motor
  • The refrigerator may run longer than you’re used to, because the compressor and fans operate at lower speeds that are more energyefficient. This is normal.

NOTE:

  • Your refrigerator may run even longer if the room is warm, a large load of food is added, the doors are opened often, or if a door has been left open.

Refrigerator seems noisy

  • The compressor in your new refrigerator regulates temperature more efficiently and uses less energy than older models. During various stages of operation, you may hear normal operating sounds that are unfamiliar. The following noises are normal: 
  • Buzzing/Clicking - Heard when the water valve opens and closes to dispense water or fill the ice maker. If the refrigerator is connected to a water line, this is normal. If the refrigerator is not connected to a water line, turn off the ice maker. 
  • Cracking/Crashing - Heard when ice is ejected from the ice maker mold. 
  • Popping - Heard when the inside walls contract/expand, especially during initial cooldown.
  •  Pulsating/Whirring - Heard when the fans/compressor adjust to optimize performance during normal operation. 
  • Rattling - Heard when water passes through the water line, or due to the flow of refrigerant. Rattling may also come from items placed on top of the refrigerator. 
  • Water running or gurgling - Heard when ice melts during the defrost cycle and water runs into the drain pan.  Sizzling - Heard when water drips onto the heater during the defrost cycle.

Temperature is too warm

  • New installation - Following installation, allow 24 hours for the refrigerator and freezer to cool completely.

NOTE:

Adjusting the temperature control(s) to the coldest setting will not cool either compartment (refrigerator or freezer) more quickly.

  • Doors are opened often or not closed completely - This allows warm air to enter the refrigerator. Minimize door openings, keep the doors fully closed, and make sure both doors are properly sealed.
