• To minimize noise and vibration, the washer
MUST be installed on a solidly constructed floor.
See the NOTE at right.
• Allowable slope under the entire washer is
• Carpeting and soft tile surfaces are not
• Never install the washer on a platform or weakly
NOTE: Please note that the floor must be strong
and rigid enough to support the weight of the
washer when fully loaded, without flexing or
bouncing. If your floor has too much flex in it,
you may need to reinforce it to make it more
rigid. A floor that is adequate for a top-loading
washer may not be rigid enough for a front-
loading washer, due to the difference in the spin
speed and direction. If the floor is not solid, your
washer may vibrate and you may hear and feel
the vibration throughout your house.
