ELECTRICAL INSTALLATION
i
ALL ELECTRICLaundry Centers
]
The following are specific requirements
for
proper and safe electrical installation of your laundry center.
Failure to follow these instructions can create electrical shock
and/or a fire hazard.
This appliance MUST be properly grounded.
Electrical shock can result if the laundry center is not properly
grounded. Follow the instructions in this manual for proper
grounding.
Do not use an extension cord with this
laundry center. Some extension cords are not designed to
withstand the amounts of electrical current this laundry center
utilizes and can melt, creating electrical shock and/or fire hazard.
Locate the laundry center within reach of the receptacle for the
length power cord to be purchased, allowing some slack in the
cord. Refer to the pre-installation requirements in this manual
for the proper power cord to be purchased.
A U.L approved strain relief must be installed
onto power cord. If the strain relief is not attached, the cord can
be pulled out of the laundry center and can be cut by any
movement of the cord, resulting in electrical shock.
Do not use an aluminum wired receptacle
i
with a copper Wired power cord and plug (or vice versa). A
chemical reaction occurs between copper and aluminum and
can cause electrical shorts. The proper wiring and receptacle
1.
is a copper
wired
power
cord with
a copper
wired
receptacle
OR aluminum
wired
power
cord
with
an
aluminum wired receptacle.

NOTE: Laundry centers operating on a 208 volt power supply
will have longer drying times than laundry centers operating on
a 240 volt power supply.

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 asto whether
the appliance is properly grounded.
For a qrounded, cord-connected laundry center:
1. The laundry center 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. If your laundry center is equipped with a power supply cord
having an equipment-grounding
conductor and a grounding
plug, the plug MUSTbe plugged into an appropriate, copper
wired receptacle that is properly installed and grounded in
accordance with all local codes and ordinances. If in doubt,
call a licensed electrician. Do not modify
plug provided
with the appliance.
For a permanently connected laundry center:
The laundry center 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.

Check with a licensed electrician if you are in doubt as to
whether the appliance is properly grounded.
For a grounded cord connected laundry center:
1. The laundry center MUST be grounded.
In the event of
malfunction or breakdown, grounding will reduce the risk of
electrical shock by providing a path of least resistance for
the electrical current.
2. Since your laundry center is equipped with a power supply
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
