ELECTRICAL REQUIREMENTS

CIRCUIT - Individual, properly polarized and grounded 15 amp.
branch circuit fused with 15 amp. time delay fuse or circuit breaker.
POWER SUPPLY - 2 wire, with ground, 120 volt, single phase, 60

created by gas powered generators, solar powered generators,
wind powered generators or and other generator other than the
local utility company is not recommended.
OUTLET RECEPTACLE - Properly grounded 3-prong receptacle to
be located so the power supply cord is accessible when the washer
is in an installed position. NOTE: GFI (Ground Fault Interrupter)
receptacle is not required.

GROUNDING REQUIREMENTS

Improper connection of the equipment grounding
conductor can result in a risk of electrical shock. Check with a
licensed electrician if you are in doubt as to whether the appliance
is properly grounded.
1. The washer MUST be grounded. In the event of malfunction
or breakdown, grounding will reduce the risk of electrical
shock by a path of least resistance for electrical current.
2. Since your washer is equipped with a power supply cord
having an equipment-grounding conductor and a grounding
plug, the plug MUST be plugged into an appropriate, copper
wired receptacle that is properly installed and grounded in
accordance with all local codes and ordinances or in the
absence of local codes, with the National Electrical Codes,
ANSI/NFPA 70 (latest edition). If in doubt, call a licensed
electrician.
DO NOT cut off or alter the grounding prong on the power supply
cord. In situations where a two-slot receptacle is present, it is the
owner’s responsibility to have a licensed electrician replace it
with a properly grounded three prong grounding type
receptacle.

WATER SUPPLY REQUIREMENTS

Hot and cold water faucets MUST be installed within 42 inches
(107 cm) of your washer’s water inlet. The faucets MUST be 3/4
inch (1.9 cm) garden hose type so inlet hoses can be connected.
Water pressure MUST be between 10 and 120 pounds per square
inch (maximum unbalance pressure, hot vs. cold, 10 psi.) Your
water department can advise you of your water pressure.
