3. Open the yellow single-wire clamp and slide over the end of
the drain hose "hook" to secure the sections together. (Pliers
optional.)
4.
Put hooked end of drain hose into laundry tub or standpipe.
Rotate "hook" to eliminate kinks.
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").
