Read these instructions completely and carefully.
WARNING
TO REDUCE THE RISK OF FIRE, ELECTRICAL SHOCK AND
PERSONAL INJURY:
• DO NOT USE AN EXTENSION CORD OR AN ADAPTER PLUG WITH THIS APPLIANCE.
Washer must be electrically grounded in accordance with local codes and ordinances.
CIRCUIT - Individual, properly polarized and grounded 16-amp branch circuit fused with 16-amp time-
delay fuse or circuit breaker.
POWER SUPPLY - 2-wire, with ground, 220-240 V, single-phase, 50-Hz, alternating current.
OUTLET RECEPTACLE - Properly grounded 3-prong receptacle to be located so the power supply cord
is accessible when the washer is in an installed position.
GROUNDING REQUIREMENTS
WARNING
Improper connection of the equipment grounding conductor can result in a risk of electrical shock. Check
with a licensed electrician if you are in doubt as to whether the appliance is properly grounded.
1. The washer MUST be grounded. In the event of malfunction or breakdown, grounding will reduce
the risk of electrical shock by providing a path of least resistance for electrical current.
2. Since your washer is equipped with a power supply cord having an equipment-grounding conductor
and a grounding plug, the plug MUST be plugged into an appropriate, copper-wired receptacle that is
properly installed and grounded in accordance with all local codes . If in doubt, call a licensed
electrician. DO NOT cut off or alter the grounding prong on the power supply cord. In situations
where a two-slot receptacle is present, it is the owner's responsibility to have a licensed electrician
replace it with a properly grounded three-prong grounding-type receptacle.
WATER SUPPLY REQUIREMENTS
Cold water faucet MUST be installed within 42 inches (107 cm) of your washer's water inlet. The faucet
MUST be 3/4" (1.9 cm) garden hose-type so inlet hose can be connected. Water pressure MUST be
between 10 and 120 pounds per square inch. Your water department can advise you of your water
pressure.
DRAIN REQUIREMENTS
1. Drain capable of eliminating 17 gals (64.3 L) per minute.
2. A standpipe diameter of 1–1/4" (3.18 cm) minimum.
3. The standpipe height above the floor should be:
Minimum height: 24" (61 cm)
Maximum height: 47.24" (120cm)
NOTE: The drain hose attached to the washer
can reach a 58" (147 cm) high standpipe.
For a higher standpipe, contact an authorized
parts distributor.
