Selecting the proper location for your washer improves
performance
and minimizes noise and possible washer "walk."
Your washer can be installed under a custom counter, or in a
basement, laundry room, closet, or recessed area. See "Drain
System."
Companion appliance location requirements should also be
considered.
Proper installation is your responsibility.
You will need
A water heater set to deliver 120°F (49°C) water to the washer.
A grounded electrical outlet located within 6 ft (1.8 m) of where
the power cord is attached to the back of the washer. See
"Electrical Requirements."
Hot and cold water faucets located within 4 ft (1.2 m)
of the hot and cold water fill valves, and water pressure
of 20-100 psi (137.9-689.6 kPa).
If you live in a hard water area, use of a water softener is
recommended to control the buildup of scale in the steamer and
other areas of the washer. Over time, the buildup of lime scale
may clog the steamer, which will reduce steamer efficiency and
performance. Excessive buildup of scale may lead to the need
for steamer replacement or repair.
A level floor with a maximum slope of 1" (2.5 cm) under entire
washer. Installing the washer on soft floor surfaces, such as
carpets or surfaces with foam backing, is not recommended.
A sturdy and solid floor to support the washer with a total weight
(water and load) of 400 Ibs (180 kg).
Do not operate your washer in temperatures
below 32°F (0°C).
Some water can remain in the washer and can cause damage
in low temperatures.
Installation clearances
The location must be large enough to allow the washer door
to be fully opened.
Additional spacing should be considered for ease of installation
and servicing.
Additional clearances might be required for wall, door, and
floor moldings.
Additional spacing of 1" (2.5 cm) on all sides of the washer is
recommended to reduce noise transfer.
Companion appliance spacing should also be considered.
