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 Paris').
1o Insert a new flat washer (supplied) into each end of the inlet
hoses. Firmly seat the washers in the couplings.
