STEP 5 - CONNECT THE WATER HOSES

Depending on your model, the water hoses provided will be either Style 1 or Style 2.
Follow the instructions specific to the style of water hoses provided.
IMPORTANT:
Use only new hoses when installing the washer. The water hoses
must have coarse thread connectors on one end (to connect to the household
water supply), and fine thread connectors on the other end (to connect to the
washing machine).
NOTE:
Periodically inspect hoses for cracks, cuts, leaks or wear. Replace with new
hoses every 5 years.
Hot water needs to be set at a temperature of at least 120ºF - 140ºF. (49ºC-
60ºC) for the soap to dissolve and to avoid soap residue remaining on
clothes.
1.
Check that a flat washer is present and firmly in place in each end of the water
inlet hoses.
Style 1
2.
Thread the white end of the inlet hose by hand onto the COLD water inlet valve
on the back of the washer until firmly hand tightened.
IMPORTANT:
Do not connect the gray end of the inlet hose to the washer. You will
damage the threads and it will leak.
To avoid damage to the hose couplings, do not overtighten.
Style 1 - Using pliers, tighten the connection an additional two-thirds turn
(MAXIMUM). Do not use excessive force.
Style 2 - Do not use pliers to tighten the connection.
NOTE:
To avoid damage to the washer inlet valves, do not use plumber's
tape or sealants on the valve threads.
