ELECTRICAL INSTALLATION

ALL ELECTRIC Laundry Centers
WARNING
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.
WARNING
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.
WARNING
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.
WARNING
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.
WARNING
Do not use an aluminum wired receptacle
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 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.

GROUNDING REQUIREMENTS

Non-Canadian ELECTRIC Laundry Center
DANGER
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 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 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 MUST be 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.
Canadian ELECTRIC Laundry Center
DANGER
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 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
accordance with all codes and ordinances. If in doubt, call a
licensed electrician.
ALL GAS Laundry Centers
1. The laundry center is equipped with a three-prong (grounding)
plug for your protection against shock hazard and should be
plugged directly into a properly grounded three-prong
receptacle. Do not cut or remove the grounding prong from
the plug.
