INSTALLING THE WASHER

1. Run some water from the cold faucets to flush
the water lines and remove particles that might
clog up the inlet hoses and water valve
screens.
2. Obtain inlet hoses
locally.
3. Ensure there is a
rubber washer in
the hoses. Reinstall
the rubber washer
into the hose fitting
if it has fallen out
during
shipment.Carefully
connect the other inlet hose to the inside "C"
outlet of the water valve. Tighten by hand;
then tighten another 2/3 turn with pliers.
Do not crossthread or over-tighten these
connections.
4. Install the screen washers by inserting them
into the free ends of the inlet hoses with
protruded side facing the faucet.

5. Connect the inlet hose ends to the COLD
water faucets tightly by hand, then tighten
another 2/3 turn with pliers. Turn the water on
and check for leaks.
6. Carefully move the washer to its final location.
Gently rock the washer into position ensuring
inlet hoses do not become kinked. It is
important not to damage the rubber leveling
legs when moving your washer to its final
location. Damaged legs can increase washer
vibration. It may be helpful to spray window
cleaner on the floor to help move your washer
into its final position.
NOTE: To reduce vibration, ensure that all
four rubber leveling legs are firmly touching the
floor. Push and pull on the back right and then
back left of your washer.
NOTE: Do not use the dispenser drawer or
door to lift the washer.
NOTE: If you are installing into a drain pan,
you can use a 24-inch long 2x4 to lever the
washer into place.
7. With the washer in
its final position,
place a level on top
of the washer (if the
washer is installed
under a counter, the
washer should not
be able to rock).
Adjust the front
leveling legs up or down to ensure the washer
is resting solid. Turn the lock nuts on each leg
up towards the base of the washer and snug
with a wrench.
NOTE: Keep the leg extension at a minimum
to prevent excessive vibration. The farther out
the legs are extended, the more the washer
will vibrate.
If the floor is not level or is damaged, you may
have to extend the rear leveling legs.
