Electrical Shock Hazard
Plug into a grounded 3 prong outlet.
Do not remove ground prong.
Do not use an adapter.
Do not use an extension cord.
Failure to follow these instructions can result in death,
fire, or electrical shock.
A 120 volt, 60 Hz., AC only, 15- or 20-amp, fused electrical
supply is required. A time-delay fuse or circuit breaker is
recommended. It is recommended that a separate circuit
serving only this appliance be provided.
This washer is equipped with a power supply cord having a
grounded 3 prong plug.
To minimize possible shock hazard, the cord must be
plugged into a mating, grounded 3 prong outlet, grounded in
accordance with local codes and ordinances. If a mating
outlet is not available, it is the personal responsibility and
obligation of the customer to have the properly grounded
outlet installed by a qualified electrician.
Excessive Weight Hazard
Use two or more people to move and install washer.
Failure to do so can result in back or other injury.
IMPORTANT: Position the washer so that the rear of the washer
is within approximately 3 ft (90 cm) of its final location.
There are 4 bolts in the rear panel of the washer that support the
suspension system during transportation. These bolts also retain
the power cord inside the washer until the bolts are removed.
Remove Transport System
If codes permit and a separate ground wire is used, it is
recommended that a qualified electrician determine that the
ground path is adequate.
Do not ground to a gas pipe.
Check with a qualified electrician if you are not sure the
washer is properly grounded.
Do not have a fuse in the neutral or ground circuit.
For a grounded, cord-connected washer:
This washer must be grounded. In the event of a malfunction
or breakdown, grounding will reduce the risk of electrical
shock by providing a path of least resistance for electric
current. This washer is equipped with a cord having an
equipment-grounding conductor and a grounding plug. The
plug must be plugged into an appropriate outlet that is
properly installed and grounded in accordance with all local
codes and ordinances.
Improper connection of the equipment-
grounding conductor can result in a risk of electric shock.
Check with a qualified electrician or serviceman if you are in
doubt as to whether the appliance is properly grounded.
Do not modify the plug provided with the appliance – if it will
not fit the outlet, have a proper outlet installed by a qualified
For a permanently connected washer:
This washer must be connected to a grounded metal,
permanent wiring system, or an equipment grounding
conductor must be run with the circuit conductors and
connected to the equipment-grounding terminal or lead on
