Washer must be connected to water faucets with new inlet
hoses with flat washers (not provided). Do not use old hoses.
NOTE: Both hoses must be attached and have water flowing
to inlet valves. If you are only connecting to a cold water
faucet, you must use a Y-adapter (not included).
into each hose
Insert a new flat washer into each end of the inlet hoses
(not provided). Firmly seat the washers in the couplings.
Attach hose to hot water faucet. Screw on coupling by hand
until it is seated on washer. Use pliers to tighten couplings an
turn. Repeat this step with second hose
for cold water faucet.
Do not overtighten
or use tape or sealants on
valve when attaching to faucets or washer. Damage can result.
HELPFUL TIP: Make note of which hose is connected to hot
water to help in attaching hoses to washer correctly. In most
hoses will cross over each other
when attached correctly.
Run water for a few seconds through hoses into a laundry tub,
drainpipe, or bucket to prevent clogs. Water should run until clear.
inlet hoses to washer
Attach hot water hose to the bottom inlet valve. Screw
coupling by hand until it is snug. Use pliers to tighten
couplings an additional two-thirds turn. Repeat with cold
water inlet valve (top valve).
IMPORTANT: To reduce risk of hose failure, replace the hoses
every 5 years. Record hose installation or replacement
for future reference.
 Periodically inspect and replace hoses if bulges, kinks, cuts,
wear, or leaks are found.
