Electrical Requirements

WARNING
Electrical Shock Hazard
Plug into a grounded 3 prong outlet.
Do not remove ground prong.
Do not use an adapter.
Do not use an extension cord.
Failure to follow these instructions can result in death,
fire, or electrical shock.
IMPORTANT: The washer must be electrically grounded in
accordance with local codes and ordinances or, in the absence of
local codes, with the National Electrical Code, ANSI/NFPA 70,
latest edition.
If codes permit and a separate ground wire is used, it is
recommended that a qualified electrical installer determine
that the ground path is adequate.
Do not ground to a gas pipe.
Do not have a fuse in the neutral or ground circuit.
A copy of the above code standards can be obtained from:
National Fire Protection Association
One Batterymarch Park, Quincy, MA 02269
A 120 volt, 60 Hz, AC only, 15- or 20-amp, fused electrical
circuit is required. A time-delay fuse or circuit breaker is
recommended. It is recommended that a separate circuit
serving only this washer be provided.
The washer is equipped with a power supply cord having a
3 prong grounding plug.
To minimize possible shock hazard, the cord must be plugged
into a mating, 3 prong, grounded-type outlet, grounded in
accordance with local codes and ordinances. If a mating
outlet is not available, it is the personal responsibility and
obligation of the customer to have the properly grounded
outlet installed by a qualified electrician.
Recommended Ground Method
The washer, when installed, must be electrically grounded in
accordance with local codes, or in the absence of local codes,
with the National Electrical Code, ANSI/NFPA 70, latest edition,
and all local codes and ordinances.
GROUNDING INSTRUCTIONS
For a grounded, cord-connected washer:
This washer must be grounded. In the event of a malfunction
or breakdown, grounding will reduce the risk of electrical
shock by providing a path of least resistance for electric
current. This washer is equipped with a cord having an
equipment-grounding conductor and a grounding plug. The
plug must be plugged into an appropriate outlet that is
properly installed and grounded in accordance with all local
codes and ordinances.
WARNING:
Improper connection of the equipment-
grounding conductor can result in a risk of electric shock.
Check with a qualified electrician or serviceman if you are in
doubt as to whether the appliance is properly grounded.
Do not modify the plug provided with the appliance – if it will
not fit the outlet, have a proper outlet installed by a qualified
electrician.
For a permanently connected washer:
This washer must be connected to a grounded metal,
permanent wiring system, or an equipment grounding
conductor must be run with the circuit conductors and
connected to the equipment-grounding terminal or lead on
the appliance.
