Replace
inlet hoses after five years
of use to reduce
the risk of
hose failure.
Periodically
inspect
and replace
inlet hoses if
bulges,
kinks, cuts, wear
or leaks are found.
When
replacing
your
inlet hoses,
mark the date of replacement
on the label with a permanent
marker.
Install and store your washer where it will not freeze. Because
some water may stay in the hoses, freezing can damage your
washer. If storing or moving your washer during freezing weather,
winterize it.

vacation or not using your washer for an extended period of time,
you should:

power.
Turn off the water
supply
to the washer.
This helps avoid
accidental
flooding
(due to a water
pressure
surge) while you
are away.
