ground method
The washer, when installed, must be
electrically grounded in accordance with
local codes, or in the absence of local
codes, in the U.S.A., with National Electrical
Code ANSI/NFPA 70*, or in Canada, with
Canadian Electrical Code, CSA C22.1**.
GROUNDING INSTRUCTIONS: This
appliance must be grounded. In the event of
malfunction or breakdown, grounding will
reduce the risk of electric shock by
providing a path of least resistance for
electric current.
The power supply cord plug must be
plugged into an appropriate outlet that is
properly installed and grounded in
accordance with all local codes and
ordinances.
WARNING - 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 electrician.
