Drain Requirements

The washers have a 3" (76 mm) water drain on their rear side.
To connect the drains to a drain hose, use the 3" (76 mm) elbow
which is supplied with the washer. Secure the elbow with a clamp.
To maintain washer performance, do not reduce the diameter of
the drain pipe.
The washer may drain into a waste channel or directly to a drain.
The waste channel cannot be located under the washer.
There should be at least 3.94" (100 mm) between the back of
the washer and the middle of the waste channel (see illustration
The waste channel must be lower than the drain pipe.
There should be at least a 0.79" (20 mm) air gap between
the bottom of the drain and the water level in the channel.

on the data plate with your order.
Remove accessories and manuals
from inside washer drum.
3. Store inside in a temperature controlled
environment 34° and 131°F (1° and

Data Plate
The drain pipe should be located over a floor drain or drainage
The drain pipe must be able to handle wastewater from all
of the washers, so the diameter of the drain pipe required is
dependent on the number of washers in the line. Sanitary drains
must be vented and meet all local and municipal codes. The
suggested drain diameter for one to three washers is shown
in the illustration below.
Recommended drain pipes diameters:
d1 = 3"/75 mm for one washer
d2 = 4"/100 mm for two washers
d3 = 5"/125 mm for three washers

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.
2. Using a carton knife, make a cut in the plastic film.
3. Remove corrugated top, corrugated corner posts, and corrugated
side, front, and rear supports.
4. Dispose of/recycle all packaging materials.
5. Loosen the 4 - M16 x 160 mm bolts attaching the washer to
the pallet and gently lift washer.

Fastening Washer to Concrete Floor
1. To position the washer, lift by the bottom frame.
2. Place the washer over the two drilled holes (see "Anchoring").
3. Make sure the washer is level. If needed, adjust the feet.
4. Mount the anchoring bolts in the drilled holes. Install the washers
and nuts, and tighten well. NOTE: If necessary, prop up the
washer frame with washers or spacers to avoid deformation
during tightening of the anchor bolts.
5. See "Dimensions and Technical Specifications" section for
installation measurements.
