MEETING INSTALLATION REQUIREMENTS
120 Volt 60 Hz 15 AMP fuse or circuit breaker
Individual branch circuit serving only your washer is recommended.
Your washer is equipped with a power cord.
Never use an extension cord.
ELECTRICAL GROUNDING IS REQUIRED ON THIS APPLIANCE.
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.
This appliance is equipped with a power cord having a three-prong grounding plug for use in a
properly installed and grounded outlet.
Improper connection of the equipment-grounding conductor can result in a risk of electrical
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
does not ﬁt the outlet, have a proper outlet installed by a qualiﬁed electrician.
IMPORTANT SAFETY PRECAUTIONS
To prevent unnecessary risk of ﬁre, electrical shock or personal injury, all wiring and
grounding must be done in accordance with the National Electrical Code ANSI/FNPA, No.
70 Latest Revision and local codes and ordinances. It is the personal responsibility of the
appliance owner to provide adequate electrical service for this appliance.
Never connect ground wire to plastic plumbing lines, gas lines, or hot water pipes.
To correctly ﬁll your washer in the proper amount of time, water pressure of 20-116psi(137-
800kPa) is required.
Water pressure less than 20 psi(137kPa) may cause water valve failure, or may not allow the
water valve to shut off completely. Or, it may extend the ﬁll time beyond what your washer
controls allow, resulting in your washer turning off. A time limit is built into the controls in the
event of an internal hose becoming loose and ﬂooding your home.
The water faucets must be within 4 ft.(122cm) of the back of your washer for the inlet hoses
provided with your washer.
Accessory inlet hoses are available in various lengths up to 10 ft.(305cm) for faucets that
are further away from the back of your washer.
To avoid the possibility of water damage:
Check all connections at the water valve and faucet for leaks.
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.
