Important safety precautions

To prevent unnecessary risk of fire. electrical shock, or personal injury, all wiring and grounding must be dane in accordance with the National Electrical Code ANSI/FNPA, No.70 Latest Revision and local codes and ardinances. It is the personal responsibility of the appliance owner to provide adequate electrical service for this appliance.

CAUTION

Never connect the ground wire to plastic plumbing lines, gas lines, or hot water pipes.

Water

To correctly fill your washer in the proper amount of time, water pressure of 20 to 116 psi (137 to 800 kPa) is required.

Water pressure less than 20 psi may cause water vaive failure, or may not allow the water valve ta shut off completely, or may extend the fill time beyond what your washer controls allow, causing your washer to turn off. A time limit is built into the controls to prevent flooding in your hame if a hase becames loose.

The water faucets must be within 4 feet (122 cm) of the back of your washer to match the inlet hoses provided with your washer.

Accessory inlet hoses are available in various lengths up to 10 feet (275 cm) for faucets that are further away from the back of your washer.

To avoid the possibility of water damage:

+ Have water faucets easily accessible.

+ Turn off faucets when the washer is not in use.

+ Periodically check that there is no leakage from the water inlet hose fittings.

WARNING

Check all connections at the water valve and faucet for leaks

Drain facility

The recommended height of the standpipe is 39 in @9 cm). 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 to the washer at the factory.

Flooring

For best performance, you must install your washer on a solidly constructed floor. Wood floors may need to be reinforced to minimize vibration and/or unbalanced load situations. Carpeting and soft tile surfaces are contributing factors to vibration which can cause your washer to move slightly during the spin cycle.

Never install your washer on a platform or weakly supported structure.

+ Has enough space so that the washer doesnt rest on its power cord

STEP 2 Connecting the water supply hoses

Caution

Before installing the water supply hoses. make sure there are rubber gaskets (B) inside the couplings (A) at both ends of each new water hose. Installing the water supply hoses without rubber gaskets can cause water leakage.

Caution

When you initially install the washer, be sure to use new hoses. Failing to da sa may result in a water leakage or overflow and may damage your property.

Caution

Do not connect multiple water supply hoses together to increase the length of the supply hose, Hoses connected this way can leak and the leakage can cause electrical shack. if a hose is too short, replace the hose with a longer, high pressure hose.

1. Connect the ends of the water supply hoses to the hot and cold faucets.

2. Tighten the fittings by hand until they are snug, and then tighten them an additional two-thirds of a turn with pliers.

Caution: When you fasten the fittings, da not fasten them too tightly or apply tape or sealant to the faucets or water supply intakes. This can damage the fittings.

NOTE: After you have connected the water supply hoses ta the faucets, ensure that they are connected correctly by pulling the water supply hoses downwards.

3. Place the unconnected ends af the hoses into a bucket and open the faucets connected to the two water supply hases for 10 or 15 seconds to remove any foreign substances from the hoses. Close the faucets before continuing.

4. Connect the ends of the water supply hoses to the water supply intake connections at the back af the washer.

CAUTION

The water supply hose connected to the hat faucet must be connected to the hot water supply intake and the water hose connected to the cold faucet must be connected ta the cold water supply intake.

5. Tighten the fittings by hand until they are snug, and then tighten them an additional two-thirds of a turn with a plier.

Note

To ensure the correct water usage, connect both the hot and cold water faucets. if either or both are not connected, the washer will display a “4C" (no fill) code when you run it.

Note

If you do not want to use the hot water supply hose, insert the water intake cap onto the hot water supply intake. Then. select Tap Cold for the water temperature.

If you select Tap Cold, all water temperature options are turned off.

CAUTION

Confirm that the water supply hoses are not twisted or bent. If the hases are twisted or bent, the hoses can leak and cause electric shock due ta water leakage.

6. Tum onthe hot and cold water supplies and check the water supply intake connections and the faucets for water leaks.

STEP 3 Connecting the drain hose

The end of the drain hase can be positioned in three ways:

+ Make sure the lid is closed tightly before you start a load of laundry.

Detergent use

Your washer is designed to use high efficiency (HE) detergents.

For the best cleaning results, use a high efficiency detergent such as Tide HE. Wisk HE, Cheer HE or Gain HE”. High efficiency detergents contain suds suppressors that reduce or eliminate suds. When fewer suds are produced. the load tumbles more efficiently and cleaning is maximized. (* Brand names are trademarks of their respective manufacturers.)

WARNING

Regular detergent is not recommended. Use HE detergents only.

NOTE: Reducing the amount of detergent may reduce the quality of cleaning. It is important to pre-treat stains, sort carefully by color and soil level, and avoid overloading.

Automatic dispenser

Your washer has separate compartments for dispensing detergent and color-safe bleach and fabric softener. Add all laundry additives to their respective compartments before starting your washer.

The automatic dispenser must always be in place before you start your washer.

DO NOT open the automatic dispenser when your washer is running.

NOTE

+ Never exceed the manufacturer's recommendations when adding detergent.

+ This compartment holds liquid detergent for the main wash cycle, which is added to the load at the beginning of the cycle.

+ When using powdered detergent, remove the liquid detergent compartment from the detergent drawer. The washer will not dispense powdered detergent from the liquid detergent compartment.
