Proper connection of the drain hose protects your floors from
damage due to water leakage. Carefully read and follow these
instructions.
1o Wet the inside of the straight end of the drain hose with tap
water. Do not use any other lubricant.
2. Squeeze ears of the silver, double-wire
clamp with pliers to
open. Place clamp over the straight end of the drain hose 1¼
in. (6.4 mm) from the end.
3. Open clamp. Twist hose back and forth while pushing onto
drain connector on the side of the laundry center. Continue
until hose contacts the ribbed stops on the cabinet.

For laundry tub or standpipe
drain systems
Connecting
the drain hose "hook" to the corrugated drain hose:
1o Wet the outside end of the drain hose with tap water. Do not
use any other lubricant.
2. Twist and push the "hook" back and forth while pushing
down onto the drain hose. Continue until the "hook" is down
to the enlarged diameter of the drain hose.
To prevent drain water from going back into the washer:
Do not straighten hooked 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.
For use with floor drain
Do not install the drain hose "hook" on to the corrugated drain
hose. You may need additional parts (see "Floor Drain" under
"Alternate Parts").
1. Insert a new flat washer (supplied) into each end of the inlet
hoses. Firmly seat the washers in the couplings.
