Leveling the Washer

The drum of your new washer spins at very high
speeds. To minimize vibration, noise, and unwanted
movement, the floor must be a level, solid surface.
The slope beneath the washer should not exceed 1
inch, and all four leveling feet must rest firmly on the
floor.
NOTE
• Adjust the leveling feet only as far as necessary to
level the washer. Extending the leveling feet more
than necessary can cause the washer to vibrate
• Before installing the washer, make sure that the
floor is clean, dry and free of dust, dirt, water and
oil so the washer feet cannot slide easily. Feet
that move or slide on the floor can contribute to
excessive vibration and noise due to poor contact
with the floor.
1
Position the washer in its final location.
Take special care not to pinch, strain, or crush the
water and drain lines. If you have a carpenter's
level, you can place it across the top of the
washer.
2
Adjust the lower leveling feet.
Turn in one direction to raise the washer or the
other direction to lower it.

3
Tighten the locknuts.
Turn the locknuts counterclockwise and tighten
them when the washer is level.

Recheck the washer's levelness.
Push or rock the top edges of the washer gently
to make sure the washer does not rock. If the
washer rocks, repeat steps 1-3.
CAUTION
• Using the washer without leveling it may cause
excess vibration and noise, leading to a machine
malfunction.
• Extend the leveling feet only to level the washer.
If you extend the leveling feet unnecessarily, it
may cause abnormal vibration of the washer.
Using Non-Skid Pads
If you install the washer on a slippery surface, it
may move because of excessive vibration. Incorrect
leveling may cause malfunction through noise and
vibration. If this occurs, install the non-skid pads
under the leveling feet and adjust the level.
1
Clean the floor to attach the non-skid pads.
Use a dry rag to remove and clean foreign objects
or moisture. If moisture remains, the non-skid
pads may slip.
2
Adjust the level after placing the washer in the
installation area.
3
Place the adhesive side of the non-skid pad
on the floor.
It is most effective to install the non-skid pads
under the front legs. If it is hard to place the pads
under the front legs, place them under the back
legs.
