REMOVE TRANSPORT SYSTEM
WARNING
Excessive Weight Hazard
Use two or more people to move and
install washer.
Failure to do so can result in back or
other injury.
IMPORTANT: Position the washer so that the
rear of the unit is within approximately 3 feet
(90 cm) of the final location.
There are 4 bolts in the rear panel of the washer
that support the suspension system during
transportation. These bolts also retain the power
cord inside the washer until the bolts are re-
moved. To remove the bolts:
1.
Using a 1/2" (13 mm) wrench, loosen each
of the bolts.
2.
Once the bolt is loose, move it to the center
of the hole, and completely pull out the
bolt, including the plastic spacer covering
the bolt, and the cable attached to the bolt.
The power cord will be attached to all 4
bolts inside the washer.
3.
Once all 4 bolts are removed, pull the
power cord through the opening of the rear
panel, and close the hose with the at-
tached cap.

INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS

Installing The Washer
4.
Close the bolt holes with the four transport
bolt hole plugs.
CONNECT THE INLET HOSES
Connect the inlet hoses to the water fau-
cets.
Make sure the washer basket is empty.
1.
Using a pair of pliers, check the tightness
of the hose couplings that are attached to
the washer. NOTE: Do not overtighten the
couplings, or damage to the coupling can
result.
2.
Attach the hose with the red color indicator
to the hot water faucet, and the hose with
the blue color indicator to the cold water
faucet. Screw on the couplings by hand
until they are seated on the washer.
3.
Using a pair of pliers, tighten the couplings
an additional two-thirds turn. NOTE: Do
not overtighten the couplings, or damage
to the coupling can result.
4.
Turn on the water and check the couplings
for leaks.
NOTE: Replace the inlet hoses after 5 years of
use to reduce the risk of hose failure. Record
the hose installation, or replacement dates on
the hoses for future reference. Periodically
inspect and replace hoses if bulges, kinks,
cuts, wear, or leaks are found.
