• Connect the drain hose to the
outlet of the drain pump located at
the rear of the washing machine.
Attach the clip to the drain hose.
The drain hose should always be properly secured to the drain or standpipe. Failure to secure
the drain hose properly can result in flooding and property damage.
• The end of the drain hose should be placed 39" (99 cm) above the floor.
• The drain must be installed in accordance with any applicable local codes and regulations.
• Make sure that the water lines are not stretched, pinched, crushed, or kinked.
• Do not insert the drain hose more than 12" (30 cm) into the drain pipe to avoid siphoning and
odor build-up.
• The washer should never be installed or stored in a location subject to freezing temperatures. If the
washer was exposed to freezing temperatures prior to installation, allow it to stand at room
temperature for several hours before use. Damage to the water lines and internal mechanisms of
the washer can result.
• Water supply pressure must be between 14.5 psi and 116 psi (100 ~ 800kPa) If the water supply
pressure is more than 116 psi, a pressure reducing valve must be installed. If you have
uncontrolled water temperature and pressure you should fit a temperature and pressure relief valve
to ensure that water temperature and water pressure remain within the safe limits. Consult a
plumber or electrician if you are unable to adjust water temperature and or pressure. Failure to do
so can result in damage to the machine.
• Plug the power cord of washer into a properly grounded outlet. Failure to do this can result in shock
or serious injury.
• And then push it toward the body of
the washing machine as indicated
by the arrow.
• Check that the drain hose is hung
up over the edge of the laundry tub.
• Do not use an extension hose.
