damage due to water leakage. Carefully read and follow these
instructions.
The drain hose is connected to your washer and is stored inside
the washer cabinet.

Gently pull the corrugated drain hose out of the washer from the
top of the hose. Continue to pull the hose until the end emerges.
Do not force excess drain hose back into the rear of the washer.

A. Snap either end of the drain hose form to the drain hose at the
point where the corrugation begins.
B. Bend drain hose over drain hose form and snap into place.
To prevent drain water from going back into the washer:
Do not straighten the formed end of the drain hose and force
excess drain hose into standpipe. Hose should be secure but
loose enough to provide a gap for air.
Do not lay excess hose on the bottom of the laundry tub.
