of washer.
1. Inspect carton for damage. Inspect washer if carton shows
signs of damage. Do not remove washer from pallet.

Remove accessories and manuals
from inside washer drum.
3. Store inside in a temperature controlled
environment -13° and 131°F (-25° and
55°C). Do not expose washer to the
weather. Humidity levels must be
between 30 to 90% without condensation.
IMPORTANT: Make sure that all components are secured during
transportation and installation.

Moving to Final Location

Make sure all passages and spaces through which the
washer will be moved to its installation location are high
enough and wide enough for the washer and its packaging.
Do not push, pull, or press the parts protruding from the
washer (front section, door, control panel, belt cover, water
inlet, outlet pipes, etc.).
To avoid damage during handling and installation, make sure
all protruding parts are secured.
1. Move the washer near the point of installation with a lift truck
and remove packing material.
2. Loosen the 4 - M16 x 160 mm bolts attaching the washer to
the pallet and gently lift washer.
IMPORTANT: Washer is very heavy. Consider equipment and
manpower required to move this washer prior to installation and
be sure that all necessary preparations are made.
Fastening Washer to Concrete Floor

bolts. All four footings must come into firm contact with
the floor.

or base has completely cured.
