About Ground Wires
In the event of an electrical short circuit, a ground wire
reduces the risk of electric shock by providing an escape
wire for the electric current.
Standard accepted color coding for ground wires is green
or green with a yellow stripe.
Grounding wires and wires colored like grounding wires
are NOT to be used as current carrying conductors.
To reduce the risk of fire, electric shock, serious injury
or death, all wiring and grounding must conform with
the latest edition of the National Electric Code, ANSI/
NFPA 70, or the Canadian Electrical Code, CSA
C22.1, and such local regulations as might apply. It is
the customer's responsibility to have the wiring and
fuses checked by a qualified electrician to make sure
your home has adequate electrical power to operate
the washer.
To avoid risk of personal injury or death due to
electrical shock:
• Observe all local codes and ordinances.
• Disconnect electrical power to unit before servicing.
• Ground appliance properly.
• Check with a qualified electrician if you are not sure
this appliance is properly grounded.
• DO NOT ground to gas line.
• DO NOT ground to cold water pipe if pipe is
interrupted by plastic, nonmetallic gaskets, or other
insulating (nonconducting) materials.
• DO NOT modify plug on power cord. If plug does not
fit electrical outlet, have proper outlet installed
by qualified electrician.
• DO NOT have a fuse in the neutral or ground circuit.
A fuse in the neutral or ground circuit could result in
an electrical shock.
• DO NOT use an extension cord with this appliance.
• DO NOT use an adapter plug with this appliance.
