GROUNDING
INSTRUCTIONS
For a grounded,
cord-connected
washer:
This washer must be grounded.
In the event of a malfunction
or breakdown,
grounding
will reduce the risk of electrical
shock by providing
a path of least resistance for electric
current. This washer is equipped
with a 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 local
codes and ordinances.
WARNING:
Improper connection
of the equipment-
grounding
conductor
can result in a risk of electric shock.
Check with a qualified electrician
or serviceman
if you are
in doubt as to whether the appliance
is properly grounded.
Do not modify the plug provided
with the appliance - if it will
not fit the outlet, have a proper outlet installed by a qualified
electrician.
For a permanently
connected
washer:
This washer 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.
